Our home is set on the Rotonda which is a fabulous residential area for the local community. We have great beaches to the south of us on Gasparilla Island, also known as Boca Grande and to the west along Manasota Key including Blind Pass and Englewood Beaches. You are spoilt for choice with so many beaches to choose from.
Shopping is a must for many guests. We have excellent value local stores, the Mall in Port Charlotte which is just 20 minutes away with a JC Penney's, Macey's, Bealls and Sears. They also have a good cinema complex there. You also have shops down in Fisherman's Village which is a pier in Punta Gorda where you have cheap and cheerful shops alongside very upmarket ones. When you have finished shopping ,enjoy a drink or a meal at one of the restaurants, including Harpoon Harry's at the end of the pier where you can sit looking out over Charlotte Harbor. For a more upmarket experience, visit Armands Circle in Sarasota. A day you will never forget. We have two discount Malls within easy reach if you run out of ideas locally!
There are plenty of good restaurants and you can eat out very inexpensively here. We keep a guide in our home which is up to date with plenty of ideas of where to find good food at very reasonable prices.
If you like golf, enjoy fishing or hiring a boat for a day, this is the perfect holiday spot! The warm gulf waters are dotted with little islands within the inter-coastal waterways. You can hire a boat locally, with or without a captain to give you a very person view of the water side of Florida. You may see Manatee, Dolphins, Bald Eagles,Tortoises, Snakes, Alligators, Osprey and inevitably the brown pelican. You can also see the beautiful white pelicans at certain times of the year.
We have many local parks where you can enjoy bird watching or just walking or cycling through the trails. A day at Babcock Ranch is great value for money where you can learn about the different flora and fauna found in this part of Florida and enjoy their own version of a swamp buggy ride!
If your idea of a perfect holiday is to lie by the pool and soak up the warm sun or visit the theme parks at Walt Disney World, our peaceful home is ideal and awaits you!
We left your home, sadly, this morning. We really wished we could have stayed longer. It was a beautiful home and worked well for us. Our cat loved sitting in the window in the living room and looking out, when he wasn't lying leisurely beside the pool in the glimpse of sun we had. We used the grill often but only made it in the pool once, on the first day. We had several storms all week...I think we heard the area received 12 inches of rain in two days early in the week.
We were extremely pleased with the property. The home was very comfortable with great amenities. It was very clean when we arrived, and we were able to immediately settle in... TV in every room, good BBQ and a nice pool. They even provided chairs and umbrellas for the beach. Verse location, just minutes from the beach, golf courses, grocery shops and restaurants. The owners were very quick about responding to any inquiries, and their property manager even came by to introduce herself. We really enjoyed our vacation and highly recommend the home. We will definitely be going back.
house has what you expect an average home to have. We found the stools at the counter were not the right height & the living room needed chairs for viewing TV but that was only a minor problem. Also, the rug in the master bedroom was very slippery & I almost fell once. We were only inside during bad weather & at nite so not a big deal.
Overall, it is a comfortable home but needs a little tweaking to be an above average home. I would rent there again, great location.
