Great home in a super location. Steve was a pleasure to deal with we had a great time.

Home was very nice; beautiful canal view; huge screened lania and heated pool. Fenced yard for dog.

  • 5 of 5

Property was great and well kept. Am a little disappointed in what looks like a substantial price increase for next year. With that said on a smaller note I would suggest upgrading the linens. They were all really worn. The kitchen linen was lacking also. Regular kitchen linen would have been more appropriate than the wash cloths provided. Bed linen had small holes. While the checkout procedure said empty cabinets, in the several years we have rented there has always at least been salt and pepper. Just a little thing but nice gesture for the next renter. Overall, definitely a great rental at a great location. The owners are great to work with on anything that might need attention. It's a home we would definitely rent more than once but not at the increased amount.

Comfort Plus!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our six weeks in this beautiful home, and a highlight was the heated pool and spa. We spent many hours lounging there, and in the evenings we enjoyed the family room directly off the pool for tv, card games or reading. Any questions or problems we had were immediately answered to our satisfaction by Steve. We rarely used the outdoor eating area and would have preferred a table under the lanai, but that is just our preference because we often ate after sunset. The kitchen is very well equipped, and all appliances (including the washer and dryer) worked well. We did have to purchase a coffee maker (since we don't like keurig) and some cleaning supplies for upkeep of the bathrooms and kitchen. Thank you for opening this attractive home for our use. I wish we were the ones retiring there!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, as expected, with a great kitchen/dining/ family room living space. However, the view when entering the house is beautiful. Beyond the living room, first you see the lanai and pool and then your eye wanders down the back yard to the canal and palm trees. Our time spent outdoors is what we enjoyed most. The lanai amenities, including overhead fans, a TV, a grill, a fridge and pass-thru window to the kitchen, meant we needed for nothing – there is even an outdoor bathroom! Along with the heated pool and the colorful sunsets reflecting in the canal, we enjoyed a summer vacation in January!

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.
