RIVER HAVEN; LUXURY WATERFRONT VILLA - BOAT DOCK, POOL AND JACUZZI

Port Charlotte Villa Rental Photos and Description

Peaceful location and superb views, but with good access to area attractions

This beautiful luxury waterfront villa is perfect for a relaxing holiday, with its amazing outlook and great access either by car or by boat. The villa's heated 28ft pool, with jacuzzi, has a fabulous view over a cross-junction of canals, and the peaceful location is great for fishing and watching the wildlife go by. We have seen manatee, bobcats, dolphins, armadillos, possums, raccoons and the occasional alligator. You're welcome to bring your own boat - there is a public boat launch just a few minutes from the house, and you can tie up at our boat dock. The pool area has a large lanai, plenty of room for lounging, and a gas barbecue.

There are two living areas, three bedrooms - two with en-suite bathrooms, and a den which is either a bedroom or a TV room. The family room has a quality piano. There are 4 TV's (2 HD) with individual programming, and a wireless router for internet access.

This superb luxury villa has everything you need for a fabulous holiday or for an ideal longer term rental.

We have rented many villas worldwide including two in the past in Florida
Taking into consideration different standards in different countries , this one is by far the best we have stayed in .
It had all the boxes ticked and not even the smallest minor niggle . Which for us is the first time every villa usually has a minor unreportable complaint you keep to yourself . This genuinely has none .

As far as the holiday ...well the only disappointment was that it was not long enough and there are too many things to do

I guess that says it all !! very sad it finished

Get away from it all.

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky to stay for a month in River Haven. The photos are a true reflection of the property and it really is a fabulous view. The house is at the end of a very quiet street with very little road or boat traffic and was very peaceful. We spent most mornings by the pool and went further afield in the afternoon. You will need to travel a little to get to the busier areas such as Sarasota and Fort Myers( about an hour) but the house is ideal for a "get away from it all" holiday. The beds and sofas were very comfortable and there are plenty of pots and pans in the kitchen. It certainly felt like home to us. Ian and Sue were ready to answer any questions and the local agent, Lesley, was also very helpful. Highly recommended.

Second time around

  • 5 of 5
Our second visit to River Haven brought back wonderful memories of our first visit in 2009. The villa and location is perfect for a peaceful and relaxing holiday yet close enough to all the things you may want to do. High quality furnishings, superb pool and spa and most important of all, very, very helpful owners who provided every assistance possible. Stay here and you won't regret it at all. Simply wonderful.

Beautiful villa with everything we could possibly need. We've rented many holiday homes and none was more excellently equipped or in a more perfect location than this. A wonderful place to relax and have fun. Would recommend to anyone!

Wonderfully peaceful

We are ex villa owners and so know Florida well, this villa is the best we have ver stayed in, why ? Because it's like a home not a rental and you feel relaxed amongst the quality furnishings, I write this review while sitting on the deck listening to the breeze as that's all you hear here! Forget looking for anywhere else in this area you won't find better and such lovely people to rent from .

Beautifully Located and Maintained

  • 5 of 5
Having spent two weeks in a villa in hectic Orlando we just wanted to relax on the Gulf and this villa was perfect. Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, in terms of being able to cycle for hours without worrying about cars, we were less than a 10 minute drive from a huge range of shops including a mammoth Walmarts. The villa we had in Orlando was a typical holiday let with the usual issues such as a half dozen holes in the lanai and a couple of other little niggles. River Haven was in a different league, the house is obviously someones second home not just a holiday let and you can really see/feel the difference, everything was in mint condition and beautifully maintained.

Our particular favourite features were the bicycles, the stereo for the lanai with no neighbours close enough to need to worry about and just the pleasure of being in such a beautiful home with superb views across the pool to the canal. In two weeks we did not eat a single meal in doors as the shaded area before the pool was perfect for eating out.

Both before we went and whilst there the owners were as obliging as its possible to be, the whole experience was wonderful. We would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone just wanting to get away from it all for a couple of weeks.
