Guestbook comments from the manager
We really enjoyed our visit - lovely home!

The weather was great, in the 70's and 80's and sunny every day.

We played a lot of different golf courses in the area.

We enjoyed eating out at the local restaurants and shopping at Fisherman's Village.

Great vacation!!

Thanks so much Drew & Christine

My wife and myself live and work in the Northern part of Alberta, Canada. You can well imagine how terrible and dreary our winters are. We have been traveling to the Port Charlotte area now for going on 25 years with family and friends. This year we decided it was time to purchase our little slice of paradise. We really hope that you enjoy this winter get away home as much as we and our family and friends have.

No better way to start your day than having a cup of coffee on the lanai watching the exotic birds and having the sun warm you up. Not a care in the world.

Enjoy.

ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5
Just got home from a month stay in this home and I could have stayed forever! There is nothing I would change about this property! Nice neighborhood, short distance to shopping, dining and attractions. There was really no need to eat out as the kitchen was equipped with any appliance, pan or utensil you could need, plus there was a great grill out by the pool. It was kind of cool and rainy so we didn't use the pool much but got a lot of good use out of the hot tub just outside of the master bedroom. My husband did some catch and release fishing in the canal behind the house and caught a fish nearly every time he went. The house was clean and beautiful inside and out. I couldn't believe how big the rooms were. We have stayed at other places that were tiny. We also visited a very nice church just up the road - New Day Christian - and felt very welcomed. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone and would love to come back some time.

GREAT HOME!... MORE THAN EXPECTED

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for a (too) short week Dec 7-14 2013. We arrived late evening, no problem to check-in since all the house information was specifically written by the entrance. The house was top clean, roomy and the kitchen was “more” than fully equipped, we had great easy cooking. We really enjoyed sitting on the lanai by the heated pool & Jacuzzi (perfect privacy). Neighbors are quite and respective (no dogs bark at all). Fishing was fun in the canal (caught a big Cat fish) along with watching the “Ibis and Heron” birds! No mosquitoes. We loved watching several good films on the giant screen TV. Fast speed Internet. All previous reviews reveal the truth. We hope to return to this location and would strongly recommend this to anyone. Thanks Drew & Christine

EXCELLENT ACCOMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a month at this fabulous property. The home was more than we could have asked for! Amenities and property finishes were wonderful. Centrally located, it was within a short drive to restaurants, malls, movies, and the beach. All in all, we greatly enjoyed our stay.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing and so spacious and comfortable! We enjoyed our time here very much and wish we would have stayed longer than a week! The pool area is wonderful. My son enjoyed it very much. The back yard was very nicely landscaped and the waterway was really neat. We didn't do any fishing but my son seen a lot of birds and turtles that he thought was pretty neat. We used the pool a lot but didn't use the hot tub much because we had some problems with getting it to work correctly. I believe the maintenance person said it was being replaced in the upcoming weeks. The house was nicely decorated and had everything possible you could think of! It is also located in the middle of shopping, grocery and restaurants and was a short drive to the beach and other attractions. I hope to return to this location in the future and would recommend this to anyone looking for a quite and relaxing place to stay.

The hot tub's handheld remote requires a bit of practice.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived with tropical storm, Andrea! We thought it was a bad omen, but we were wrong.
Drew and Christina's home is one of the best we have ever rented. It is tastefully decorated yet extremely comfortable. Everything you could possibly need is there for you. The pool and the tropical feel are awesome!
Stores and restaurants are only a short drive away. We fell in love with Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda (less than 15 minutes away). We enjoyed dinner at the Village Fish Market ( they have a special menu for low-fat, heart healthy or gluten free, but you can't tell -it is so tastey). We also spent time at Harpoon Harry's. it also has an amazing view of the water, and good food (casual). There are several gift shops in the village that we really liked. We also ate at Gatorz. Food was really good. Atmosphere was fun.
Drew was always there via email to answer questions.
We will be back!

COULDN'T ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE

Couldn't Ask For Anything More
  • 5 of 5
This house has everything a renter could possibly need or want for a wonderful stay. We did an extensive search and were lucky to find this rental home in FL. The pool and lanai are great! The lanai offers full sun if you want it while at the same time there is a covered area with plenty of shade. It is generously furnished with a large table for dining and board games. There is an ample supply of lounge and table chairs. The kitchen is extremely well supplied with most any cooking utensil you need.It has a large side by side refrigerator/freezer with water and ice dispenser.

The property is centrally located providing easy access to I 75 which is great for day trips. Shopping, restaurants and local attractions (Check the local newspaper, the Charlotte Sun) are within a short distance in any direction from the property. The landscaping is wonderful .. Wildlife which appears along the canal adds to the enjoyment of this natural setting.
Drew and Christine responded promptly to any minor questions we had,. even the stupid ones...all with good humor which we appreciated!
We spent three wonderful months here last winter and will return in 2014.
