About Jeff or Jenny Higel

We are from Michigan with family ties to Southwest Florida. We have vacationed in nearby Venice since childhood and always loved the area and all it has to offer. Purchasing a home in the area seemed like a good fit for us; sharing our vacation home with others is a pleasure. After all, there is plenty of sunshine to go around!

Jeff or Jenny Higel purchased this house in 2012

Why Jeff or Jenny Higel chose North Port

Home was built in 2006 and is in a nice, quiet residential area close to our family. North Port is a growing city with a small town feel. It is close to everything we find desirable. It is just minutes from many beautiful gulf beaches, quaint shopping, restaurants, endless golf courses, and other outdoor activities.

What makes this house unique

This home is very private, beautifully decorated and is the perfect size for a wonderful Florida getaway vacation. Sitting under the covered pavilion in the evening is a great way to end a busy day at the beach. Oh and did I mention....Sunny and Warm! :)

Maricopa house is a very delightful place to stay. Near Heron Creek golf Club and a short drive to Venice, Port Charlotte, and the beach at Englewood, yet it is in a neighborhood setting that is quiet with low traffic. G & J

Maricopa House

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your lovely house. The weather was pleasantly warm, and we were able to enjoy the patio and the nice backyard, and biking around the neighborhood. The house was very clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking our meals. The beds were comfortable, just the way we like them. All in all, one of our best vacation rental experiences. Thank you, Jeff and Jenny!

We are looking forward to staying there again.

Maricopa House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Maricopa House for the month of April. It is located on a quiet street and not far from shopping, beaches, etc. The home is well equipped, well maintained, clean and has all the comforts of home. The nice bedding and towels were a pleasant surprise. The homeowners Jeff & Jenny are very helpful and easy to work with. Morning coffee out back with the beautiful flowers waving in the breeze was a real treat. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return some day.

Our Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house at North Port, FL. There was plenty of room for us and all of our travel gear. The house was in a nice, quiet, clean neighborhood. We were able to walk most every day on the walk/bike paths. We were able to travel to shopping and beaches easily. It was all within a 40 minute drive. We liked it so much we bought a home down there ourselves.

Perfect for Us - Maricopa House

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to find this real gem on short notice, for only a short stay, and so close to our family. Jenny was a doll to work with to make this stay happen, great communication and immediate responses. The house is lovely, with everything as described. The layout is great, and the kitchen so well equipped, we thoroughly enjoyed all the amenities. Loved the attached garage, the master suite, covered porch, open floor plan, large dining room table,and easy to follow property information. It is beautifully decorated too. We hope to stay at Maricopa again, would definitely recommend. Thanks so much for sharing your home, Jenny and Jeff!

Very nice home, good location, and the house was clean and well equipped. We stayed for a month while looking for homes to buy in nearby locations.

Both Jenny and Jeff were very helpful. Would highly recommend renting this home..
