Punta Gorda House Rental Photos and Description

Having lived in the Caribbean for 10 years, this home reflects our love of all things tropical --furnishings, fabrics, paintings and more. Nestled on the water in a quiet cul-de-sac in Punta Gorda Isles, you are surrounded by water. Bring your boat or charter one during your stay for a trip to Cayo Costa State Park for shelling. Visit the surrounding islands of Sanibel, Captiva and Boca Grande -- all less than an hour's drive from 'Solitude House.' Enjoy sunsets & cocktails from our westerly facing pool deck & dock, fish from the pier, take a swim in our newly refurbished pool, or enjoy one of the many wonderful restaurants Punta Gorda has to offer.

Professionally decorated, luxurious designer fabrics compliment all furnishings and down pillows, 600 thread count sheets cover all deluxe Simmons mattresses for the ultimate in comfort, and the pool deck, with WESTERN EXPOSURE for maximum hours of sun, has a complete compliment of outdoor furniture for you to capture the rays of the sun. The living room and master bedroom features new Key West tropical design furniture with the other bedrooms complimented by wicker & rattan. A 42' LCD TV in a tropical inspired armoire is located in the living room with TVs also in the master and guest bedroom. Additional amenities include: High Speed WIFi Internet, DVR, DVD, CD, VCR, Video and game library, fishing gear and bicycles for exploring the community.

Punta Gorda was voted one of the 'Best Healthy Places to Retire' by U.S. News and World Report. With the style of the Caribbean and the convenience of Florida, we are confident you will be captivated by your Punta Gorda experience and hope you will be drawn to spend your well deserved vacation at 'Solitude House.'

About The Owner

After sailing the waters between Ft Lauderdale, Florida and Venezuela for 10 years and owning a home and home interior business in St. Croix, U S Virgin Islands, we decided it was time to relocate back to the “states.” Upon the advice of a fellow boating enthusiast, we traveled to Punta Gorda, Florida and fell in love with the small town charm, close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, and the fact that we could still “live on the water.” Solitude House was purchased in 2003 as our permanent residence, only to have life events intervene and take us to South Carolina for the time being. So, with our usual enthusiasm to make “lemonade out of lemons,” we made Solitude House not only our vacation home away from home, but also for our guests. We have furnished our home in the traditional West Indian/Key West laid back motif, featuring tropical inspired paintings, furniture and fabrics that reflect our comfortable but casual lifestyle. We hope you enjoy Solitude House as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

What a delightful stay we have had at your Solitude House.

So relaxing and peaceful.

The lanai is beautiful and your decorative touches astound us.

Deb made it so appealing.

This stay has been for us, a renewal of Mind, Body and Spirit.

With our best Wishes,

Perfect SOLITUDE

  • 5 of 5
We just spent two wonderful months in this spacious house. We were very happy with the lovely decorator touches, the cleanliness, the very comfortable beds and the complete furnishings. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever found in a rental. The lanai and pool were perfect to enjoy the wonderful weather and view. Sitting on the dock watching Blue Terns fly by and the Snook jumping. The neighborhood is wonderful and a neighbor even stopped his boat and took us out for a sail one day. Punta Gorda Isles is a wonderful community. Very friendly and quiet but close to the very nice town of Punta Gorda, wonderful restaurants and activities. Bob was a very gracious host who was most accommodating to our every wish. We have been using VRBO for several years and this was by far our best experience. Nothing at all negative to say about the house or the community.

We stayed at Solitude House in July/August 2013. We were absolutely delighted with the quality and cleanliness of the property and would recommend it to anyone looking to explore Punta Gorda and the south west coast. With excellent access to the I-75 we were able to visit Tampa, Naples, Fort Myers, Sarasota and St Petersburg in good time. Punta Gorda Isles is a peaceful and friendly neighbourhood and we enjoyed many an evening watching the beautiful sunsets from the patio. The house is extremely well equipped and very spacious inside. The helpful and approachable owners ensured our stay ran smoothly and we would love to stay here again during future visits to Punta Gorda.

We stayed at Solitude house All of March and Part of April 2011. We had a truly delightful experience. Our family joined us at various times and we found the house beautifully laid out for guests. The house is so comfortable and very well appointed. We lacked for nothing. The owners gave us restaurant tips and information on the area. They were a joy to work with. We loved the area, finding it less congested and easier to get around in than some of the larger cities. We did everything: beaches, museums, many area attractions, shopping, etc. I have stayed in several rental homes over the years, and consider this one of the best.

A Wonderful PGI home!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 5 weeks and enjoyed the clean, beautifully decorated home. The fishing on the saltwater canal was enjoyable. We loved the area -great restaurants ( Lulu at the Wyvern hotel, Laishley Crab House, Riveria Oyster , Table 209, Joe Crackers in the immediate area and Turtles in Siesta Key and Campiello in Naples) bike and walking routes, Gallery Walk, and shopping ( Estero outlets, Naples 5th and 3rd avenues, Port Charlotte Mall) Bob and Deb were most helpful in answering our questions. There are lots of activities to do - air show, Third Thursday events, Charlotte Stone Crabs/Tampa Bay Rays baseball, Lemon Bay Playhouse (Englewood), Boca Grande beaches, art gallery events/classes, boating (from their backyard) and just relaxing by the pool. We would consider visiting this home again.
