We contacted Ernie and Diane last minute as yet another winter storm was on the way and we had enough. They had a few days available between rentals and were gracious enough to rent the unit to us. The place (as well as Punta Gorda) was warm and welcoming. The furniture was comfortable, the unit very clean, and we even had fresh flowers and wine waiting for us! A wonderful retreat. It is in a quiet area central to restaurants and parks by a short drive or bicycle ride. If you like live music 7 days a week- Gatorz in Port Charlotte is less than 5 miles away and Fisherman's Village is a little over a mile away.
