Punta Gorda House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 3-6)

Enjoy Florida the way it was meant to be. Escape to the countryside in our modern, three bedroom home nestled on ten beautiful, natural acres in the heart of citrus and cattle country. Property, located about four miles from Arcadia, has a small creek gurgling behind the house and a pond that attracts wildlife. Pick your own breakfast oranges in the backyard and hear the whooping cranes fly home in the evening.

This Non-Smoking House is comfortably furnished and provides the perfect setting to do the Florida thing - swimming off the Gulf Coast beaches less than an hour away, boating and fishing in the Peace River in close by Arcadia, world-class bass fishing also less than an hour away, shops and restaurants in Town and nearby Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte - or just sit out on the spacious screened porch and let the world go by.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We chose this area for our winter vacation because we wanted a rural experience away from the crowds. During the winter, southern Florida is rife with snowbirds and the coastal areas have row after row of high-rise condos. But the central region is the old/forgotten Florida and it truly is a nature lover's paradise. If you're looking for a wilderness adventure, this is a good place to be.
A labyrinth of paths snake through the ten acre property/jungle with a surprise around each corner - towering bamboo trees, huge bird-of-paradise plants with leaves/fronds as big as a man, ancient live oaks draped in Spanish moss, palmettos, vines, tall pines, magnolias, and many strange flowers that defied our identification. Wild citrus trees were laden with ripe grapefruit and oranges. A gurgling creek bisects the property and from a wooden bridge we watched a river otter disappear into his den. There is also a natural pond with a large alligator in residence.
The home is tastefully decorated with charming high-end folk art - treasures in every room.
At twilight we watched wood storks settle into the pond for the night. Sand hill cranes flew low overhead toward their roosting area. The nights were alive with frog and cricket chorus, and many other-worldly sounds. Excitingly eerie!
There are no security lights here (good!) so when it gets dark it REALLY gets dark. The stars were incredible at night - Orion straight overhead.
We explored the area marshes, beaches, and forests with our car, our bikes, and our canoe. When we paddled the area creeks and rivers we felt like we were in the Amazon - wild and exotic.
A nice thing about the local creeks and rivers is that the slow currents allow you to paddle in either direction, eliminating the need to spot a car. The waterways are so remote that you're unlikely to see cabins or other signs of civilization. Just what we wanted!
We had a very pleasant stay and the owners were charming and very attentive. If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable home in the woods, come to this place.
