Punta Gorda Villa Rental Photos and Description

A stunning Villa with private pool and fabulous waterfront location

SERENITY VILLA (LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION)

Serenity Villa, as the name suggests is the ideal destination for a peaceful, luxury waterfront getaway. Situated in a quite cul-de-sac of executive waterfront homes in this fabulous deed restricted area, just 5 min from Fisherman's Village and Charlotte harbour by boat, or by car, this spacious 3 bed, 2 bath villa has 95 feet of waterfront with its own private boat dock. The property is situated on a large open basin with a view that is unmatched in the whole of Punta Gorda Isles! You can fish off the dock for local fish such as Snook, Redfish and Snapper, or just sunbath and watch the boats and the world go by. Dolphins and Manatee are often seen playing right beside the dock. The most amazing and breathtaking sunsets will round off the perfect day.

This is no average villa, with two guest rooms situated on the ground floor at the western side of the villa, allowing for total privacy in the master bedroom suite on the first floor, at the eastern side.

The facility also offers daily organized activities and events for visitors, a heated swimming pool and speed boats, jet skis and bicycles available for rental.

On river-boat tours from Punta Gorda visitors experience the magic of cruising silently through pristine mangrove and cypress swamps, with alligators, manatees, eagles, ospreys, and other beautiful and exotic wildlife close at hand.

Relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time at Serenity villa, and since our first visit we were looking forward to returning. The villa is spotless as it was on our first visit with spectacular views of the canal where you can sit by the pool or the dockside and watch the world go by, "you see an abundant of wildlife".
The location of the villa is very peaceful and quite. We had a wonderful relaxing time and would highly recommend.
Punta Gorda is the perfect place to relax and to enjoy with all the different eateries a short distance away.
Thanks John for ringing to make sure everything was okay, and it was a nice touch for leaving a bottle of wine on our arrival. Hoping to return again.

Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
From the time of our initial booking to arriving back home our hosts John & Caroline have ensured that our stay was made comfortable and hassle free. If relaxation is what you are looking for then Punta Gorda and the "Serenity Villa" is where you need to stay whilst visiting Florida. With easy access to the likes of Naples, Venice, Sarassota and other surrounding places of interest the villa is ideally located. If lazy days is also high on the agenda the spend time relaxing around the pool taking in the sites of passing boats and the odd water life including crocodiles. Local restaurants abound to suit every ones tastes and pockets our favourites being Torch and Crab House. Either use the bikes provided or free ones from the Fishermans Village and take lazy rides along the Harbour front stopping off for refreshments at the "Tikki Bar" or indeed the roof top bar at the "Wyvern Hotel". Over all a must stay villa and area of Florida and comes highly recommended. Nice touch is the bottle of wine waiting your arrival.

Absolute Serenity

  • 5 of 5
John and Caroline are very accommodating first of all. The home is incredible and the view of the canal and lighthouse from the master bedroom is breathtaking. We went for a bike ride every morning with the provided bikes and the people on the street are very friendly. We just loved sitting on the dock with our cocktails and waving to the people going by on the boats. The home was immaculate, plenty of towels, dishes, glasses, silverware, washer and dryer, dishwasher and more. We plan on going back to Serenity Villa.

John & Caroline were great and home wonderful

We spent 6 wonderful weeks at Serenity Villa in 2014. The home was exactly as shown on the web site. It was very comfortable and well equipped. We swam in the pool, caught fish off the pier,and golfed at several local golf courses. Of course we had many wonderful meals at local restaurants.(River City being the best). Punta Gorda is a charming town. We enjoyed the area and will definitely be back.
Thank you John & Caroline for sharing your lovely home with us.

Absolutely Fabulous Vacation Villa!

  • 5 of 5
We really can not say enough about this wonderful paradise that we stayed in for our month's vacation! By the second week we were calling it home - fabulously decorated - and so comfortable! John and Caroline were great to work with - no problems at all - and they called a few times to make sure everything was going well! The pool with the table was one of the wonderful highlights - we could relax with our glass of wine in the sun! Everything was available in the home that we could possibly have needed! Punta Gorda is filled with restaurants, shopping and so many quaint little shops! The Muscle Car museum was a favorite with hubby along with the restaurant "Dean's".........we love the area so much that we have purchased a place so we can come back year after year! Thank you John and Caroline for an unforgettable holiday!

Excellent choice for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5
We spent many hours trying to find the perfect accommodation for a peaceful second week of our Florida holiday ( the first week being spent in the hustle and bustle of Orlando ).
Upon arrival at Serenity Villa we knew immediately that these hours had been well spent. The villa is stunning.
The neighbourhood is extremely quiet and peaceful, yet within easy distance of supermarkets, restaurants etc. The kids loved the pool ( and the pool toys that were available in the garage ).
We visited Venice for a nice evening meal ( Made in Italy ) and had a great day out on a boat which we hired from Cape Coral. We drove up to Tampa to visit Busch Gardens but the rest of our time was spent relaxing by the pool.
We had a couple of minor hiccups during the week but as soon as we notified John they were fixed within no time. This kind of service is extremely important to us and was greatly appreciated. John and Caroline are clearly very proud of their villa and rightly so and we thank them for sharing it with us.
