Our Stay from 7/21/2012 to 7/27/2012

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 3, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
This was an overall decent stay. Please see list of facts we encountered below:
1. Property was very old inside and out, but plenty of living space and furniture made for a comfortable stay. Loved the two living room feel (has a main LR and master BR has a LR too, w/fireplace). Reminded me of my uncle's cottage when I was a kid.
2. Had plenty of dishes, cups, silverware and cooking utensils including trash bags and laundry soap. Stove,fridge,jacuzzi,TVs,cable TV,washer,dryer,A/C, and charcoal grill all worked well.
3. I booked a week in advance yet landscaping on property was well overgrown, grass not mowed, and I had to duck under the large palm tree to get into the front door.
4. Not familiar with Florida country living, but it seemed the propertly could use better pest control as there was a small bug problem inside the house--both living and dead. The little lizards everywhere (outside) was pretty cool though.
5. Yes, the house is located on a river with a paddle boat, but the river is located right by a dam so the current was too strong to use the paddleboat without adding a small trolling motor or something. And I was also notified by a local resident not to sit in this small of a paddle boat on this area of the river due to alligators.
5. Received good communication from the owner both before our trip and on our day of departure. Very nice individual and seemed willing to help if we ever had a major issue during our stay.
6. Overall this was a decent place to stay that is within a 30-40 min. drive to several beaches on the west coast, so it was a good "landing pad" at the end of each day. I would come again as long as the grounds were kept a little better and the bug problem solved. I realize its not, and didn't expect, a lavish vacation home, but little things can make a difference.

Peaceful, Comfortable and Spacious

We had a very peaceful and quiet stay. We live in South Beach so it was a wonderful change to hear birds chirping, wind rustling the reeds and trees and fish splashing in the river as background noise. The hot tub outside made for relaxing evenings and the large screen porch was a perfect spot for morning coffee. The kitchen had everything you could need except for a wine key and the oven wasn't working. We enjoyed being able to use the bikes and the bbq. Aside from the neighbors on the one side, it was quite private. The house itself was so big there were rooms we didn't even use. Free Wifi and DirectTV were a big plus. You're out in the countryside surrounded by cows and horses, but it's only a 15 minute drive into downtown Punta Gorda. I would recommend thing this rental and we will consider staying here again.
