We vacationed in this meticulous condo during December. It was one of the cleanest places we have ever rented, including five star hotels. With quality, comfortable, matching furniture and a well stocked kitchen, that was fully equipped for every convenience. We enjoyed coffee each morning on the lanai overlooking the lake, cocktails in the evening watching beautiful sunsets, and peaceful relaxation in between. The heated pool with its adjacent gazebo and fishing pier were definitely a plus. The advertisement didn't do this condo justice.
We spent a lot of time in historic Punta Gorda, particularly Fisherman's Village and Gilchrist Park. The Village has great boutiques, which was a plus for me because I love to shop, not to mention the waterfront restaurants, and wonderful free entertainment at the center court including Jazz, Country, Doo Wop and family activities. There was more entertainment at Gilchrist Park on Thursday evenings.
Less than two miles away, we enjoyed the very reasonably-priced comedy club Visani's. Less than five minutes away is Tamiami Blvd. which has endless miles of every conceivable type of restaurant, food shopping, specialty stores and business. Locally, we visited Ponce De Leon Park and Port Charlotte Beach Park, which offers a harbor beach, fishing pier, pavilions, and a beautiful swimming pool with plenty of chaise lounges, directly overlooking the harbor.
Also a must is Siesta Beach voted #1 in the USA. and Turtle Beach, down the road is great for shelling.
So much to do. Can't wait to go back .
