This beautiful waterfront setting is at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac...
We are on a huge lot overlooking intersecting canals where you can watch the heron and egrets fishing from the seawall while you enjoy the sunsets from the heated pool or hot tub. Patio and pool areas are furnished entirely in teak wood furniture. This house is a very comfortable space with great sunset views that is a home away from home! ALL NEW in January of 2014, we have finished our Kitchen Renovation and posted the new pictures. This major renovation will provide our guests with a brand new kitchen area that will now have water views along with brand new cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops!
This home is furnished to make our guests feel at home with all the modern coveniences and yet it maintains a very comfortable relaxed feel that makes this beautiful space very enjoyable!
We are also very close to shopping and restaurants!

Hello!, This property is presented by Doug and Felicia who live in Miami and have vacationed on the Florida West Coast for the last 20 years. After finding this house in 2002, they established a permanent vacation spot for them, their kids and the fortunate few renters who have stayed there!
The Owner purchased this house in 2002
We randomly happened onto this beautiful place while stopping in Port Charlotte for a lunch break in route from Tampa back to our home in Miami. A local agent mentioned the property in passing and after seeing it, we put an offer on it right there! The house was in need of updating but we saw the location and waterfront as too good to pass up. We have updated and added central air conditioning, the pool patio and 210' new seawall with a boat dock and sitting docks. Port Charlotte is one of those great Florida towns where you are still greeted with a friendly 'Hello' almost anywhere you go. We love vacationing there to get away from the hectic pace of our lives in Miami. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!
The house opens up to the water front. With a triple glass slider opening from the living area onto the screened pool patio, you can enjoy the view from inside or out. The canal provides great wildlife viewing including plenty of waterbirds like egerets and herons, the occasional dolphin swimming through fishing for dinner in the canals, plenty of fish jumping, some great bird watching on our bird feeders and a bald eagle that frequents the big tree in the back yard. Along with this, you are only a couple minutes drive from grocery shopping and dining establishments! It is a great location!
In the summer of 2006 we will be adding two docks and a boat lift as well as a new seawall!!!
My wife and I just completed three wonderful weeks in this outstanding property. While, as others have said, the front is not spectacular, the inside and back area is unbelievable. We had a stunning view of the junction of two canals, looking West so all the sunsets were over the water. The kitchen and bathrooms have all been re-done in the very recent past and are great.
When you add in the heated pool, hot tub, covered lanai, DIRECTV with DVR, DVD, stereo, wireless internet, brand new 5 burner grill, and all the pool/beach tools and toys you can think of this adds up to the best equipped and most comfortable rental we have had in our lives (and we are retired and have lots of properties to compare this to!)
The icing on the cake is the response, follow-up and courtesy of Felicia and Doug. If you have a problem it will be corrected at once or iIf you have a question it is answered at once.
Bottom line is we wish we could return here every year, but sadly we only got in due to a cancellation and the main winter season is taken year after year by the same people. No question is our mind that is a great move on their parts! This place deserves 6 stars!
my boyfriend and I are in our late twenties and spent a romantic getaway week for my birthday here. We absolutely loved it. Remodeled, spacious and clean. The house was fully equipped with every last detail from bikes, kayaks, pool table etc. We grilled out every night and ate dinner under the stars. The fire pit and jacuzzi were great at night. The town is adorable as well but we are from busy south Florida and preferred watching all the movies or playing the board games that were available. Can't wait to go back with my mom. Amazing house with amazing hosts. Thank you!!! I would recommend this spot to any of my family or friends.
The house is not the prettiest we have rented in South West Florida, nor is it the biggest (the bathrooms are tiny) and if you want a place that is light & airy this is not the one for you! But, what it lacks in looks and size is more than compensated for by its benefits.
The master bed, (the only one we used), is very comfortable; ditto the lounge furniture. The wide screen TV and the good quality outdoor furniture were also a plus. The recently refitted kitchen was the best equipped of any of the several villas we have rented in Florida. The pool and hot tub are very well maintained and the new pool heating was excellent.
The real benefit of this house, for us, was its location and the views from the pool and lanai. The wide grassed areas and sloping bank into the canal attracted many kinds of birds and almost every day we watched osprey fishing from the pine tree in the garden. Manatees came very close to the house on two separate days and we also had a visit from a pair of bald eagles. The fishing from the dock was the best of any house we have been to before; so good I never went anywhere else to fish.
The house is handy for many of the attractions in this part of Florida. We particularly liked the vintage car museum in Punta Gorda. (Dozens of muscle cars from the 60's and 70's).
The bikes and canoe were an added bonus. We would rent this house again.
Cozy, comfy, calm, This place is the CAT`S miau . we liked this place so much, that we are going to move to this area. Nice pool, nice rooms , nice everything,. Do not look like much from the outside, but inside..... very very nice. The yard is awesome, lots of room and great View on a tip lot, pool table, bicycles, Bocca ball, this place got it all , we all loved it, and we are from Chicago, Denmark and Serbia.. Best vacation ever... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Great stay! Terrific location, quiet neighborhood. Clean, comfortable house, large TV and a comfortable sofa! The house was not lacking anything. Felt right at home. Close to great beaches and restaurants. Try both the River City Grill and Jack's on Marion restaurants in Punta Gorda..... fantastic. We spent a lot of time in Venice (Sharky's!), North Port and Punta Gorda, all within 20 minutes. Fort Meyers and Sarasota (Siesta Key!) each about 30 minutes away. Boca Grande beaches have beautiful shells! Took a cruise to Cabbage Key from Fisherman's Village, then dinner at the Captain's Table, nice relaxing day. We would definitely stay here again.
This was a great property on the corner of two waterway channels. Very restful and wonderful to sit on the dock watching the sunset and the fish jumping. It had all the toys: pool, hottub, TV with ++channels, bocce, pool table, bikes and a special treat to pick an orange from the tree right outside the lanai.
A great escape from winter up North and the best thing I can say is we are going back next winter and really looking forward to it!
