Terrific home and gracious owners!

  • 5 of 5

My family I had the pleasure of renting this fantastic home for 1 week (Oct. 5-12, 2016) in Punta Gorda, Florida. Everything was as advertised or better! The home was extremely clean and every room was beautifully furnished and decorated. The pool was great and the lanai area is large and accommodating, and with plenty of comfortable furniture, outdoor TV, refrigerator, and grill, you could spend all day out there.

The home is located on a calm canal in the Punta Gorda Isles area just west of the old downtown Punta Gorda, and just far enough off busy Route 41 to be an extremely quiet neighborhood. Yet it was just a couple minutes from various shopping outlets, grocery stores, the fishing docks and Fisherman's Village, a fantastic array of restaurants, and many other interesting places to visit. There are 3 bedrooms, plus a sofa sleeper in the family room that would easily accommodate 8 adults. The house itself is possibly the nicest home in the surrounding area.

If anyone is looking for a Florida destination that is a bit quieter and not so close to the overpopulated and overly-commercialized areas of Tampa, Ft. Myers, Orlando, or Miami, this is it. Yet those cities are all just a short drive away. We also visited the beautiful and quiet nearby warm water gulf beaches of Englewood Beach & Boca Grande Beach, and there are other attractions such as air boat rides, fishing, water sports, and nature parks nearby as well.

The local community are wonderful people- a mix of long-time residents and retirees. There are numerous golf courses nearby for those interested in golf.

We are already looking at next year's schedule to find a time to come back and spend more time here. It was tremendous! Thanks to the owners, who were very gracious. We'd highly recommend this place.

Great lanai and backyard

  • 4 of 5

Lanai and backyard is second to none. The TV in the lanai is a great touch. We were outside almost all the time, incl meals. Layout of the house is perfect. However the house is on a very busy street and we found it not suitable for young children. Steve (the owner) is excellent to work with, and he goes out of his way to help. Unfortunately we had many problems during our month (dishwasher, pool heater, dryer, garage door opener)----absolutely no fault of Steve. In fact he was very responsive to our issues - just not an ideal way to spend some vacation days. I feel some money may need to be spent to keep this house as a rental property.

Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this home for a stay in Punta Gorda. The layout of the home was perfect for us with a large family room right off the kitchen, large master bedroom and a huge lanai which was partly covered. This allowed you to sit outside either in the sun or shade. Steve and Terri did an excellent job in communicating with us and answering any questions that we had. If any issues had come up (which they did not) there was no doubt that they would have been taken care of immediately. The location was great as we could walk or ride bikes anywhere in Punta Gorda. We daily enjoyed sitting both inside and outside watching the boats travel back and forth through the canal. I do feel one of the best features of the house were the two lazy boy chairs. Don't get rid of them.

Excellent Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family (with two teens) stayed at this home through August, September, and October while we found and purchased a house in PGI. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quality experience. The owners were accommodating and very nice throughout the entire process. The house has fantastic views down a long canal. Lots of fish just off the dock. The fenced backyard is perfect for a dog. The house itself is well furnished with a lot of the small touches that make a house more than just a house. The very large heated pool is in great condition. Kitchen well equipped with RO water system. Neighborhood very friendly and quiet. Walking distance to Fisherman's Village and several parks. We were certainly glad to move into our own home, but were almost sad to leave this great place.
