About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Private Split Style Floor Plan. Sleeps 6. Large Screened Lanai

The Turquoise House will welcome you as you pull into the drive with its cheery exterior. Set on a very quiet road only a block off the historic Myakka river, its the perfect location for a family or just to relax. Surrounded by mature palms and tropical plantings, you will feel right at home in our recently updated vacation house. As you enter through the front door, you walk into the living room. Comfortably furnished with a couch, reclining chairs and a flat screen TV, you will be happy to spend cozy evenings relaxing here. Ceiling fans in every room, this 1400 sqft air conditioned home is tiled through out. The home has a split floor plan, meaning the bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house, allowing for privacy for guests. The Master bedroom has a queen bed, walk in closet, and private bath with a shower. The Guest bedroom has 2 twin beds. The guest bath has a shower/tub combo. The house sleeps 6 with the help of the pull out couch in the Florida room. One of my favorite rooms in the house. The Florida room has French doors leading to the kitchen and sliding doors leading onto the lanai. Can be used as another bedroom if needed or simply as another seating room.

The kitchen is fully equipped for prepping and cooking your own meals. It is an eat in kitchen with a new refrigerator and icemaker, stove/oven, microwave and dishwasher. Off the kitchen is the dining room with more access to the lanai.

The large screened-in lanai with ceiling fans, glider chairs and a dining set gives you plenty of room to relax. Begin your day with a cup of coffee, over look the backyard and watch the birds or end your day with a glass of wine as the sun sets. Any time of the day you will love being on the lanai.

The house is equipped with internet access/Wi-Fi, cable and a house phone.

About Olivia

Hi, my name is Olivia. We recently purchased this house as a vacation home for our family. We live in Connecticut, but really enjoy visiting Florida, especially during the winter months!

Olivia purchased this house in 2015

Why Olivia chose Port Charlotte

We spend a lot of time in Florida visiting our families and wanted a place we could call our own. We love this area of Port Charlotte. The neighborhood is perfect for our young family, as there is hardly any traffic coming through. Its a perfect place for our boys to ride bikes and we enjoy taking walks around block and taking in all the gorgeous scenery. When we come to the Turquoise House we are able to relax and enjoy ourselves. We take a short drive to the beach almost daily, and spend a lot of time fishing. Great place to get away. We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

This home is special because of its location. You are completely removed from the hustle and bustle in this quiet, picturesque neighborhood, yet you are only a couple minutes drive to all the stores and conveniences you need. Grocery stores, restaurants, shopping, golf, fishing and beaches! Its all right there when you want it.

Our property is located in the perfect area of Gulf Cove. A beautiful quiet neighborhood just a block off of the historic Myakka River. Wonderful location for strolling walks or sitting on the lanai to watch the birds and have your morning coffee. A short drive to a number of gorgeous beaches, environmental parks, the Great Florida Birding trail, biking trails, kayaking, fishing, shopping, grocery stores and many restaurants. You are off the beaten path, yet only a few minutes drive to anything you need.

There are so many activities, events and places to visit in and around Port Charlotte to keep you busy and entertained.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week the beginning of April and totally enjoyed the house and our stay. So convenient to most every thing including beaches. Hit four of them while there. We understand that we were the last rental with Olivia as the house was sold and they closed shortly after we left. So sad...

Contemporary house in nature and off the beaten track

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our month's stay in Olivia's spacious house in the Myakka State Forest. We both liked particularly the large lanai, where my wife, an artist, painted in water colors. I loved the adjacent Florida room, with large glass doors opening onto the lanai. The spacious house affords quiet and there are few neighbors on the same road. There's about a twenty minute drive to the beach. The grounds are wide and open. If you like wildlife, someone nearby keeps a wolf, which we could hear howl at night. I understand that its owner raised him, or her, from a pup. A large tortoise crossed the lawn, quite peacefully. The large skies were beautiful, day or night.

Lovely 2BR/2BA rental in Port Charlotte, FL

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online do not do the house justice. We arrived late afternoon and I was pleasantly surprised on the quality of the rental having rented many houses through VRBO! Very charming and well maintained property. Everything we needed was provided. Our dog loved playing ball in the back yard and this was the highlight of his trip! We've been on the road searching for homes in eastern and western south Florida. We love the Port Charlotte area and have purchased a home here.

Relaxing, Trouble-Free Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at this property. Communication with Olivia was easy and her response to inquiries was almost instantaneous. She graciously provided links to activities we were interested in. The home is very clean, obviously recently redecorated. Just about everything is new; plumbing and electrical fixtures, furniture, area rugs, dishes, towels, decorations, and all appliances. The beds were very comfortable. The home is located on a very quite street with few neighbors and little traffic. It is coveniently located to shopping and eating establishments. Don't miss Farlow's, it was the best dining experience we've had in a while. I would also reccommend 'It's Time Kayak And Canoe' for rentals and tours, and 'Around the Clock Fitness' for a near-by, very well equiped gym. Beaches on Gasparilla Island and Manasota Key are a short drive away. All-in-all a fantastic, relaxing stay in a reasonably price, well maintained, and conveniently located property.

If you rent this property, please take care of it, I'd like to return to it in the same condition I left it!
