Port Charlotte House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
Located on a broad saltwater canal in picturesque Charlotte County in Southwest Florida, the home is located at the point where the Peace River flows into Charlotte Harbor forming one of the most pristine estuaries in the state. This unique confluence holds an amazing degree of vitality and biodiversity. You'll be able to watch schools of mullet, tarpon, snook, other game fish, and even Manatees as they ply the waterways. And imagine your delight as you spy the enormous variety of crabs and other shellfish scurrying over the flats during low tide. You'll see stingrays silently patrol the bottom as the tide gently rolls back in a constant rhythm of life.
Port Charlotte is indeed a boater's paradise. You can travel up the Peace River on a pontoon or deck boat for a relaxing view of the mangrove and palm tree forests while enjoying the spectacle of Great Blue and White Herons, Glossy Ibis and even an occasional Bald Eagle. We invite you to check out the Peace River Audubon Society for detailed lists of the birds known to frequent the region. With direct access to Charlotte Harbor, the Boca Grande Pass, world renowned for its sport fishing, the Intercoastal Waterway and the Gulf Mexico are only 55 short minutes away by water.
You'll have everything you need to thoroughly experience a coastal vacation. There is a 100' seawall that spans the entire backyard. A new 35' dock provides a great platform for fishing or getting that perfect tan. And bring your boat and launch it nearby, then keep it right at your dock, ready for a cruise in Charlotte Harbor, which can be seen from the dock and is a two minute cruise. If you don't have your own, a boat can easily be rented on a daily or weekly basis at nearby Punta Gorda.
Tired of relaxing? No problem. Boat down to Punta Gorda and enjoy live music just about every evening. Downtown Punta Gorda is a center for festivals, concerts and other local events all of which highlight the local cuisine. You will not be disappointed. You are minutes away from I-75 where you can drive 30 minutes north to Sarasota or south to Fort Myers. If the kids come down for a visit, why not plan a trip to nearby Busch Gardens in Tampa (2 hours with traffic) Or take off to visit the legendary Disney World or Universal Studios theme parks in Orlando only 3 hours away.
Vacations can be many things. Sadly, most vacations are merely retreats from the stresses of modern life. But we are convinced that should you decide to spend time at our home, your vacation will be much more than a mere retreat. It will be the stuff of dreams.
Guests that bring a boat require advance approval, contact owner for details.

About Rick O'Neil
There are great waterfront properties in this community, this one is with no bridges to Beautiful Charlotte Harbor, said to have some of the best fishing and sailing in the USA. After living in the Caribbean for 6 years, I know that it was the tropical climate for me. I grew up in upstate NY so I know how cold those winters can be. But the winter season here is great! Blue skies, great weather all sold me on the area. Port Charlotte has been rated the number one retirement community in the US, so no wonder we get lots of interest from senior folks from colder climates. Come one down for a sample of the SouthWest Florida lifestyle!
Rick O'Neil purchased this house in 2010
Why Rick O'Neil chose Port Charlotte
Sailboat waterfront property, with this canal being right on Charlotte Harbor. No long 30 minute motoring to get to the harbor, it's just 2 minutes at the most!
What makes this house unique
I wanted to move into this one, thats why I got the new dock, since it was setup already, I knew it would be right for vacation rental! My mom has been coming down to this area for 10 years, and paying more then this one's rate for a condo, and now you can get a waterfront vacation rental for less then that!!
