We offer HD TV, Blu-Ray DVD and Wireless DSL Internet Connectivity.
We offer a newly remodeled kitchen, complete with Granite Countertops.
Come and enjoy the best Florida has to offer.
Charlotte Harbor: If you love the water, this is the place for you! Fish, birdwatch, powerboat, sail, kayak, sunbathe, bike, hike, golf? It's all here for you.
Charlotte Harbor is a marine estuary flowing to the Gulf of Mexico via Boca Grande Pass.
On the south side of Charlotte Harbor you will find the city of Punta Gorda. Downtown features several fine restaurants, art galleries and promenades along the harbor.
Southwest Florida: Port Charlotte is located halfway between Naples to the south and Tampa/St. Petersburg/Clearwater to the north.
Tampa features Busch Gardens and Ybor City as attractions
Sarasota, some 40 miles north of Port Charlotte, features the Ringling Circus and Art Museum as well as the Ringling Mansion. The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit.
To the south we first have Ft. Myers, home of the winter laboratory of Thomas Edison. You can tour the Edison grounds as well as the winter cottage of Henry Ford. Sanibel Island, home of white sand beaches and incredible shelling, is a barrier island reached by car through Ft Myers.
Bonita Beach and Naples offer upscale shopping and dining, the arts and the beautiful beaches of Marco Island.
The wilderness area of the 10,000 islands is a short drive from Naples.
Theme Park Florida: Where to begin? Orlando of course! Disney World, Epcot, Seaworld, Universal Studios, waterparks and a whole lot more. This is all less than a 3 hour car ride away!
Don couldn't have been nicer. He even looked out for a birthday card that arrived after we left and mailed it to us. The house was beautiful, lovely view out back from the enclosed pool. Very well equipped, with every necessity for the kitchen and bath. It was quite, private, and over all nice neighbors. We would definitely return. Punta Gorda is a lovely town just across the bridge which has some great restaurants and great views of the harbor. Thanks for everything Nancy
Met my needs totally.
House was spotless and well stocked.
Neighborhood was quiet and peaceful.
Don was helpful and attentive.i
This beautiful, Port Charlotte home is located in a quiet neighborhood that seems far from everything, even though it's within minutes of shopping, dining and entertainment. Upon arrival we were quite impressed by the spacious living room, new kitchen and beautiful view of the pool and canal behind the house. The layout is perfect as the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the home, each having its own spacious bathroom. There is also the added convenience of a garage with plenty of room for our small SUV.
The house was very clean and we noticed no issues with maintenance. The pool was heated and the owner was kind enough to ensure the heater was on before our arrival! The dock is in great shape and a perfect launch for virtually any non-motorized watercraft. We had the great fortune of seeing a dolphin in the canal directly behind the house one morning!
I highly recommend this property for anyone seeking a quiet getaway, that is close enough to the "real world" to accommodate any needs I can imagine.
My fiance and I stayed at this lovely home in December 2015. Don, the owner, graciously let us bring our dog along for our vacation. The house was impeccably clean and exceeded our expectations. The pool is beautiful and we enjoyed it on the warmer days. The dock and surrounding islands were perfect for paddleboarding and catfish were plentiful off the dock. We spent our time around the house watching movies (the TV and DVD player are very nice) and doing puzzles on the table in the screened in porch. Don was just a quick e-mail or phone call away, but respected our privacy and left us alone unless he was needed.
Punta Gorda is a short drive away and we dined and shopped there multiple times. A day trip to Venice and the dog beach (Brohard Paw Park) was enjoyed by all of us. We are also avid scuba divers and took a charter out of Venice to do some shark tooth fossil hunting, and brought home dozens of nice teeth each!
We thoroughly cleaned the house at the end of our stay and Don promptly returned our security deposit. Overall, this was a wonderful experience and we would recommend this property to anyone looking for an affordable house in a quiet neighborhood that is pet friendly.
We really liked the villa. It had all we required to be very comfortable and everything worked. The location is great, so quiet and relaxing while all the time all the big shops are just around the corner.
The pool was heated and warm which was lovely. Fishing from the dock was fun, I caught catfish and a ray. I broke s plastic chair while there and felt I should replace it however Don insisted on reimbursing me along with my deposit which was quickly received. Thanks Don, very fair!
We recommend this villa and will definitely return again.
Thanks for having us!
This was our first stay at Spring Lake House, and hopefully not our last! My husband and I, along with our miniature dachshund, spent 11 wonderful days here the last week in late September/early October. The house is beautiful, clean and exactly as described. Truly a quiet, private, serene area with a gorgeous, peaceful view. The house is ideally located close enough to every store and restaurant imaginable, yet far enough off the main roads to be away from the hustle and bustle. This was not our first visit to Port Charlotte, so we revisited some of our favorite places ~ Laishley Crab House in Punta Gorda and Flounders in Englewood, to name a few. But this trip we discovered two new places ~ River City Grill and Carmello's Italian Restaurant, both in downtown Punta Gorda and both were excellent!! Don, the landlord, was wonderful to work with and made sure all was well with our stay. The pool and lanai are absolutely delightful and we spent a lot of our time relaxing out there, enjoying the pool and the water view. The house is delightfully decorated, spotlessly clean, and is equipped with everything and anything you could possibly need! (Like a home away from home!) We had a great little vacation at Spring Lake House and we definitely hope to come back... again and again!!! :)
Port Charlotte is located on Charlotte Harbor, a large marine estuary. The harbor offers access to the Gulf of Mexica via Boca Grande Pass, site of the best tarpon fishing in the world. The harbor itself abounds with opportunities for in-shore fishing, deep sea fishing, sailing, powerboating, kayaking, bird watching, porpoise sighting, manatee encounters, white sand beach walking, snorkeling, diving, shark tooth hunting, fossil hunting and more. Port Charlotte is a short drive from Disney World, Sea World and other Orlando attractions, as well as Sarasota's Ringling Museum, Selby Gardens and Tampa's Busch Gardens. Port Charlotte is a 3.5 hour drive from Miami and Miami Beach, and 5 hours from the Florida Keys.
This is simply a location central to many of Florida's finest destinations, but it is certainly a premier destination in itself.
