Why Katy Rosen chose Punta Gorda

This property is our weekend retreat and respite from our busy lives. We love to come and relax, kayak in the mangroves, fish off our dock, swim in our pool, or boat to downtown Punta Gorda. We always leave wanting more but totally relaxed and ready to return to work.

What makes this house unique

We chose this property for its beautiful serene water view, wrap around decks, and total privacy. Because the water is brackish, we see fresh and salt water marine life depending on the tides, including dolphins and manatees right from our deck. The property feels like a private island, but is close to everything!

Quiet and secluded, but close enough to Town and shopping. Everything you need is there.

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a wonderful location. It is quiet and secluded but not remote, there are neighbours around but you would not notice. The house has great views of the river and the mangrove covered islands opposite, it is not overlooked at all. The private boat dock is a great fishing platform or just somewhere to sunbathe and relax. There is an abundance of wildlife, from rabbits in the garden to alligators in the river (we saw many big ones!) Eagles are a daily sight as are many smaller birds. There are some surprising fish in the river and during our stay we caught several small bull sharks (about 3 ft) many stingrays, a few quite big Gars, juvenile redfish and loads of catfish.

The house itself is well equipped, with all appliances working as they should. It is quite a big property and very comfortable for 4 Adults. It has a very nice screened pool which is also very private and not overlooked.

Punta Gorda is about 5 minutes drive and is a very charming small town with a few restaurants and bars. Also, close to the property is a very well stocked Winn-Dixie supermarket.

I would recommend this property to those who seek a quiet relaxing break and personally would have no hesitation in returning. My only word of caution is that the house may not be suitable for small children (outside stairs get very slippery when wet, and there is a strong current in the river)

Katy, the owner responded very promptly to any queries and the whole booking process was a breeze

So, thanks Katy for allowing myself and family to use your house .. hope to return next year

Where did 10 days go?

  • 5 of 5

After staying in the same (excellent) villa 3 times I finally took the plunge and tried somewhere different. I had my eye on this property a couple of years, but decided to stay in my usual place. I left this place after 10 days wishing I'd come here years ago. There isn't much to add to the other reviews. The property is near to everything, but miles away from anyone! Apart from the pool guy I didn't see anyone on dry land.. just passing by on the river. The house did take a day to get used to, it is dark inside, but the benefits of a cool temperature (air conditioning was never over stretched) make up for a little lack of natural light. Everything I needed was provided.

I came for some fishing and rarely left the dock catching Shark, snapper, catfish, ray and whiting. Dolphins swam passed so close I could have stepped on them (1 stopped and stared!), Osprey, Shark, Cow Nosed Ray, Manatee and an alligator were all frequent passers by.

It was a lovely time here on Riverside Drive. I hope to return sometime soon. The owners always replied promptly and were very helpful. My deposit was returned in full within a week.

If you're thinking of booking... do it!

Cleaning issues

  • 3 of 5

Very nice place to stay, great location and Katy was wonderful to deal with. However I made a comment about the place not being cleaned very well and got to talk to or should I say get reprimanded by Josh for complaining. The only other issue was when we left we cleaned the place BETTER than we received it and were still charged a cleaning fee. The pool was great and the house had a great layout and wonderful screened porch to enjoy the great views. Other than those issues we really liked it .

Private and quiet with a beautiful river view

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks at this property and had a wonderful time. The river view and sunsets were breathtaking. Lots of birdlife to view from the screened porch overlooking the Peace River. The home was well stocked with everything you needed to prepare meals, which we did every day. The pantry was stocked with staples like salt, pepper, sugar and spices. The BBQ on the porch was great and we used it several times.

There is a huge variety of reading materials, movies and maps of the river. We enjoyed those as well.

We never saw or heard another person from the house. It is extremely private, in a country setting. We visited in June, and the weather was great.

There are also kayaks, a canoe, fishing gear, and even a ping pong table. Really a great place for a family vacation.

Some very good restaurants are just minutes away, as well as a Winn Dixie grocery store, gas stations, and downtown Punta Gorda just about 8 minutes from the house.

We came with our pets, and put down a refundable security deposit which was returned to us.

The owners of this property were so nice and accommodating, and easy to reach by phone for answering questions. Inner net service was fast.

All and all, this was a great place to stay, in a wonderful neighborhood, right on the river. So glad we chose this over staying in a crowded neighborhood in town.

Peace River, amazing

  • 5 of 5

You can take all of the other reviews of this property and times them by 2. Like one reviewer said this house is way nicer than the pics x2. This was the most peaceful and tranquil place we have ever been and hopefully we can have our vacay there next May. Natalie&Dwayne

We were fortunate enough to spend 6 weeks in this wonderful house on the Peace River. It was a lovely, peaceful and rejuvenating place to be; and after trips out, it was always a joy to return here at the end of the day.

The view from the top deck is very special - especially when there have been storms around. Watching the 'lightning shows' along with the beautiful sunsets was mesmerising.

The house itself was well equipped with everything needed, and was very cosy and comfortable. We've stayed in many holiday homes over the years, and this was, without doubt, by far the nicest - in part because it was arranged so tastefully.

It is 5 minutes (a car is essential) from Punta Gorda, where there is every kind of eating place you could possibly need, as well as shops and places to visit; and it's about 15 minutes from Port Charlotte, where there are lots more restaurants, shops and a mall/cinema.

We would highly recommend this house as a get-away-from-it-all refuge for anyone needing some quality R&R! We will most definitely be returning.
