My husband and I with our fur babies had a very relaxing time in this beautifully maintained home with everything needed in a home away from home. We ate outside on the lanai every morning taking in the waterside and were tempted to use the inviting pool but the weather was still a bit cool for us Floridians. Maybe next time! We visited beautiful Punta Gorda for a delicious Christmas dinner and also dined on the wharf at Harpoon Harry's in Fisherman's Village several times The unique shops and surrounding water make for a very nice time and atmosphere. Be sure to take the boat ride during the holidays through the canals to experience the beautifully decorated homes and boats all twinkling in thousands of holiday lights. All in all it is a lovely home, cordially hosted by Don and Laura in which to spend a vacation and explore the many, many surrounding areas.
