Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our honeymoon and had a great time! An electrician came the first day for 6 hours but after that we were alone and enjoyed all aspects of the house. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed as far as cooking utensils.There was a washer and dryer that made being there a week easy. The pool was great but the ducks really didnt like sharing. The beach was very close and there was everything literally right around the corner!! We really enjoyed the hot tub. Christa, the owner, was so sweet and very easy to work with and I would love to go back and stay there again.

Owner's Response: This was not the first "honeymoon" couple.... the house and backyard setting is very private and shielded from neighbors ,so therefor it really makes a wonderful "honeymoon suite"... PS: the electrician was there because the couple had cancelled first ( that's when I called for the electrician) but then they decided to come. With their permission I did keep the electrician on appointment which was a good thing, because we discoverd an additional item that needed attention....I am avoiding any repairs ( large or small) during times when my guests are in. Thank you for understanding.

Yard and pool fantastic!

  • 4 of 5

We fell in love with the setting of this roomy house in a very convenient location in walking distance of a Public shopping center. The house and back yard were surrounded by lush and well tended landscaping that provided a relaxing place to sit and sun. The pool warmed up enough from so that we could swim in early March and the hot tub was great. The inside of the house could have been cleaner, the mattresses newer, and the sheets not so worn, but on the whole we had a great time and were disappointedo find it is already rented out for our time frame for the next two years.

Private Oassis

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Port Charlotte and Christa's home on Gardener Dr.

The home was splendid. We found it to be inviting, comfortable and relaxing.

Christa has done a tremendous job of decorating the interior and a fabulous design of landscaping.

We enjoyed all of the amenities the home has to offer. We appreciated the privacy and tranquility of the home.

It definitely gives the feeling of a private oasis.

We highly recommend it for a couples getaway.

We are looking forward to our next visit to Christa's home.

Great Vacation Family Home

  • 5 of 5

As other reviewers mention, this is a charming vacation home. I was looking for a great yard with a nice Pool and Jacuzzi and I was not disappointed. My plan was to spend most of my time in the home and yard with my two chocolate labs. Plans changed when my sister and a family friend decided to join me for the week. All of us had a great time! I usually stayed home with the dogs and my sister and friend travelled to the many great places Port Charlotte has to offer. They particularly loved the Gulf Beaches, Fisherman’s Village, shopping, jet skiing in the Bay, and the wonderful home after days of fun and explorations.

Christa was a wonderful host. She familiarized me with the home since I got there a day early. The yard is rich with Florida plants, bushes, trees, cactus etc. The pool is very large and has a deep end. I loved the large Jacuzzi since I have a bad back. My sister and friend found a dip in the pool and Jacuzzi a wonderful experience after a day of adventure.

I was the main cook and the kitchen is well equipped for any chef. We became good friends with Crista and invited her over for a good German meal one evening. She shared her many photos and talked about the many things to do in the area as well as her own travels.

The home is well situated and we were minutes away from Publics Supermarket and many other stores. All in All, we were extremely happy and we would very much like to return for a visit next year or sooner.
