INSPIRING SUNSETS OVER GULF; BEAUTIFUL MANGROVE PRESERVE

Punta Gorda Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

'The Skyhawk Retreat' is a newly refurnished, fifth floor listing in luxury Vista Del Sol. It commands sweeping western views over Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf. Evening plans often revolve around the spectacular sunsets that fill the sky like great paintings...unique every night, enjoyed from the double-lanai or anywhere in the living area or master bedroom. (Even from the well-equipped kitchen!)

During the day, the view includes the peaceful flow of watercraft through the mouth of the Marina, some on their way to nearby islands like Captiva, Gasparilla and Cayo Costa or through the Boca Grande Pass. Another bonus vista is the Mangrove preserve, a Florida coastal treasure. It is peaceful and serene, yet lives up to its 'Natures Nursery' billing and offers fascinating glimpses, and sounds, of the many wildlife that make this home. And if you want to catch an amazing morning sunrise, both guest bedrooms look eastward over the resort palm trees.

Inside, the creative retreat continues in clean, contemporary styling, furnished with original, abstract fine art inspired by the surroundings. There is plenty of relaxing room, over 1,600 sf. Furniture, beds, fans, lighting, and accessories are brand new.

Sleep 6 in 3 bedrooms with ease: a Master King, Queen guest, and a flexible Daybed Twin/King guest. An overflow twin cot is also provided. All bedrooms have large walk-in closets. The private Master suite features direct access to the double-lanai and an over-sized bathroom with double vanity, separate soaking tub and walk-in shower. Laundry room with washer, dryer and storage closet are also provided. For entertainment the living room offers a 46' Samsung flat screen HDTV with DirecTV, a Blu-Ray DVD, Sound Bar, wireless Wi-fi access, and streaming blue-tooth music services. The master bedroom has a 32' LCD HDTV.

This is a secure building with one under-building reserved parking place assigned to this condo unit. Rolling carts for luggage or groceries are next to the parking with secure entrance to the building lobby and elevators.

The condo is minutes away from every boaters dream, with incredible sailing or power cruising. And it doesn't get any better for saltwater anglers...snook, redfish, pompano, trout, cobia, and some of the best tarpon fishing anywhere. Kayaking is also popular along the mangrove-lined shorelines and tunnel 'trails'. Burnt Store Marina welcomes all boaters, and can accommodate vessels up to 100-feet, with deepwater wet slips, dry boat storage, and ramp. Overlooking the marina, full dining service is provided at Porto Bello's restaurant.

For the golfers, a beautiful 27-hole executive course is available in the resort with restaurant and an activities club. The greater Ft Meyers area provides many other public golfing options, too.

Exercise with a walk around Prosperity Point...you may see manatee and dolphins in the marina and surrounding channel. Biking, tennis, and a fitness club are also featured in this 600 acre gated resort.

If beach fun is on the menu, the area has popular options in every direction...Sanibel, Captiva, Ft Meyers, Venice, Gasparilla, Punta Gorda and Sarasota.

Or just ride the elevator down to enjoy quiet time in the building's private heated pool and jacuzzi/spa. It's beautifully landscaped, with a lighted, gas grill barbecue area for the perfect outdoor evening meal.

Burnt Store Marina Resort is the perfect get away vacation. A peaceful and friendly retreat with many on-site amenities, but near enough for shopping (Tanger and Miromar outlet malls), beaches, and international airport service at Ft Meyers.

With all of this, a stay at The Skyhawk Retreat...well, don't be surprised if you forget what day it is!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Just want to thank-you for such a enjoyable time I had. Your condo is everything that you said on the your web site. Thanks for the return of the deposit money so quickly. I treated the condo like it was my own, and seems the renters before me, do the same.Hopefully, I will be back soon Thanks

We are Rick & Deborah, live in Franklin,TN, our base for running an art business which has taken us all over the country (Deborah's the artist). I can paint, too...walls.

Rick Gall purchased this condo in 2012

We have a natural draw back to Florida, due to lots of family in southwest and central areas of the state, and having met each other while living in Tampa. We found Burnt Store Marina while staying in the area for regional art shows. We love that it is 'off the beaten and crowded path' and find Vista Del Sol truly inspiring and relaxing. It has it all.

The combination of sunsets, sky, and sea are amazing. The mangrove preserve fascinating. The boating and fishing world-class. The community safe, secure and friendly. The amenities complete, and the entire southwest coastal Florida location (Naples, Ft Meyers, Punta Gorda, Venice, Sarasota) is a treasure...with Burnt Store Marina just one of the jewels.

The condo name? Retreat...check. Beautiful sky...check. And one particularly friendly hawk impressed us.

The Skyhawk Retreat. Come stay.

TRULY A PLEASURE!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at The Skyhawk Retreat was truly a pleasure. We have been enjoying winter stays at Burntstore Marina for 10 years. It is a beautiful complex with so much to offer - fishing, boating, golf, walking, biking with many lovely attractions, entertainment and wonderful restaurants nearby. This was our first year in the newly decorated and furnished Skyhawk Retreat. Rick and Deb did a wonderful job in creating a beautiful and comfortable "home away from home". The views from this unit are a true delight and sunsets are spectacular! We look forward to returning.

A FANTASTIC CONDO

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely, well appointed Condo! Additionally, the views from the large, screened in lanai were breathtaking. Hope we get the opportunity to stay again. My family felt we had given them a resort vacation.

I NEVER WRITE REVIEWS, BUT HAVE TO FOR MY RECENT STAY HERE.

  • 5 of 5
The condo was immaculate and looked exactly like the pictures displayed. The views are stunning and peaceful. The neighborhood in general was very quiet. Portobello's was a great place to have a quick bite to eat with a large outdoor patio and is within walking distance. Rick was very accommodating with his quick responses and detailed instructions for the arrival process. I highly recommend these owners and I am hopeful that I will get to return again.

WEST COAST EXPLORATION

  • 5 of 5
Rick and Deborah have provided a beautifully appointed, spacious, amenity-rich condo to use as a home base for either exploring Florida's Gulf Coast, or for simple relaxation. The neighbors were very friendly, the Marina was excellent for wild life viewing and for walking. Although we did not need to reach out to the owners, we felt well supported, thanks to very thorough instructions. It was a much needed luxurious vacation for us! We enjoyed the sunsets and even spotted a beautiful bobcat! Great place to find solitude mixed with nature. Thank you for sharing you space!

Owner's Response: Katie thanks so much for this gracious review. Wow, and you saw a bobcat! (down in the mangrove at the condo or in your other travel?)
Take care and hope you can stay with us again! Rick

GEM OF A CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
This is really an exceptional condo. Beautifully decorated, clean and very well stocked. We have rented other Vista Del Sol condos and they don't compare. Everything in this condo felt new. There were plenty of linens, the kitchen had everything we needed - and we are cooks - and there were even enough hangers!
The description and photos are accurate but don't do the place justice. We were two 60 something couples and had a great visit and used all the amenities!!
The owner - Rick- was a joy to work with - very helpful and timely. I highly recommend this property and also thank Rick for the quick return of our deposit.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Diane, for taking the time to send the review...and such kind and helpful comments. My wife Deborah was behind the "need lots of hangers!" decision so we got a laugh out of your comment!
Hope you and friends can come again. Take care.
