This fine resort is in a gated community called Burnt Store Marina. You can walk, bike or toodle around in golf carts in the pedestrian/bike friendly community. There are two yacht basins, with this property on one of them. This marina is the gateway to the gulf and the islands of Sanibel, Captiva and Useppa. You can charter a boat for personal sailing or go aboard the charter boat to islands where you can hike, camp, go shelling or eat at great funky and fun restaurants such as Cabbage Key. Pine Island is a short drive from your condominium with numerous waterfront, seafood restaurants. For day trips, you can visit Sarasota (great art museums, shopping, Ringling Brothers, etc.) and further to the north Tampa, the home of Busch Gardens. It's only a two and one-half hour drive over Alligator Alley (Hwy.75)to Ft. Lauderdale or northeast to Orlando.
Golf and Fitness Center: You may use the golf and fitness center for daily fees. Eighteen hole golf course on site! Fitness center and tennis courts a few blocks away.
Boat Chartering and Boat Slips Available: You can charter your own boat right here at the marina or take a group boat to nearby islands. More opportunities in Punta Gorda, as well! Just go to Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda. You may be able to reserve a boat slip right outside your door for your own boat. Some of our guests bring there own boat & store it in nearby storage area and then can rent a slip probably right outside your door! How cool is that!!??
Deep sea and local fishing Available: Fish right off the seawalls! Or go out on a day charter for deep sea fishing. Great local fishing in Charlotte Harbor. This is one of the best fishing areas in the country. Tarpon is KING!! There is grouper, Kingfish, etc., etc.
Your hosts are Tom and Gay Weekes who live locally in Punta Gorda Isles. We manage this property ourselves so we are available should you need anything. We lived in Harbor Towers ourselves when we moved to Punta Gorda permanently in 2001. We therefore, invested money in upgrades, such as high end stove/microwave/convection; 18' tile laid on the diagonal, some custom features that improved the model, extra insulation on MBR wall for sound insulation, bull nose corners, etc. We take a good deal of pride in maintaing the unit and someday may move back in!! We enjoy vactioning there ourselves on occasion with our family & we moor our boat outside for a fun family time. We love the marina and know you will too. We are both realtors for Keller Williams Realty in Punta Gorda; if you ever have any questions re: properties, don't hesitate to call. We are avid boaters in the region and love what it has to offer.
We have two adorable Bichons that we take almost everywhere, so we are pet friendly. We moved here from Telluride, CO and also lived in Thousand Oaks, CA prior to that. We love to travel and vacation...just like you! Please come and be our guests in our lovely condo!!
We fell in love w/ Burnt Store Marina and at one time owned two condos there. We spent some time at them prior to moving here full time. We loved the view at the Harbor Towers and thought the building was absolutely gorgeous..not to mention the tropical pool by the marina.
Miles and miles of pedestrian, golf cart, bike trails. Fishing right there. Updated modern kitchen for all your gourmet needs. Deli on sight and two restaurants. Quiet and charming.A must is whiling away the time on the deck watching Manatees play!
