This charming old style Florida home offers a quiet and peaceful atmosphere to relax and re-charge !
Located on Shell Creek, overlooking hundreds of acres of environmental land from the back yard.
This home is only a few minutes away from the little historical town of Punta Gorda where you can visit local Gourmet Restaurants, Art Shops, Boutiques and scenic Parks and Marinas . Many events are planned throughout the year.
The home also allows for a quick access to Interstate 75 that connects to larger towns and cities on the West Coast like Ft. Myers, Naples, Sarasota, St,. Petersburg etc.
The unique setting of this home on Shell Creek offers peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. It is located in a small Deed Restricted Community called THREE RIVERS. Friendly neighbors will welcome you, it is a child friendly and pet friendly neighborhood where everybody will know your name.
This is a wonderful property. Spacious, peaceful, relaxing and beautiful! Watching the lizards everywhere was fascinating to this northern gal. Everything worked well (despite the A/C going out day 2, but Jack had it fixed within the hour!!!!) and everything is provided that you would need! I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing vacation in Florida! (While there, I highly recommend Fisherman's Wharf in Port Charlotte - there is an amazing Military museum there that is a MUST-SEE!)
We had a lovely stay at Christa's and Jack's property with two young boys 10 and 11 years old. The view of the river is fantastic! Everything was there from linens to dishes and cookware to coffee maker.
The master bedroom is huge and has its own living room set and wood burning stove.
The house is older and could be updated in some areas but very roomy and we didn't run into any issues.
I would definitely recommend this home and I'm sure we'll come back!!
This was an overall decent stay. Please see list of facts we encountered below:
1. Property was very old inside and out, but plenty of living space and furniture made for a comfortable stay. Loved the two living room feel (has a main LR and master BR has a LR too, w/fireplace). Reminded me of my uncle's cottage when I was a kid.
2. Had plenty of dishes, cups, silverware and cooking utensils including trash bags and laundry soap. Stove,fridge,jacuzzi,TVs,cable TV,washer,dryer,A/C, and charcoal grill all worked well.
3. I booked a week in advance yet landscaping on property was well overgrown, grass not mowed, and I had to duck under the large palm tree to get into the front door.
4. Not familiar with Florida country living, but it seemed the propertly could use better pest control as there was a small bug problem inside the house--both living and dead. The little lizards everywhere (outside) was pretty cool though.
5. Yes, the house is located on a river with a paddle boat, but the river is located right by a dam so the current was too strong to use the paddleboat without adding a small trolling motor or something. And I was also notified by a local resident not to sit in this small of a paddle boat on this area of the river due to alligators.
5. Received good communication from the owner both before our trip and on our day of departure. Very nice individual and seemed willing to help if we ever had a major issue during our stay.
6. Overall this was a decent place to stay that is within a 30-40 min. drive to several beaches on the west coast, so it was a good "landing pad" at the end of each day. I would come again as long as the grounds were kept a little better and the bug problem solved. I realize its not, and didn't expect, a lavish vacation home, but little things can make a difference.
We had a very peaceful and quiet stay. We live in South Beach so it was a wonderful change to hear birds chirping, wind rustling the reeds and trees and fish splashing in the river as background noise. The hot tub outside made for relaxing evenings and the large screen porch was a perfect spot for morning coffee. The kitchen had everything you could need except for a wine key and the oven wasn't working. We enjoyed being able to use the bikes and the bbq. Aside from the neighbors on the one side, it was quite private. The house itself was so big there were rooms we didn't even use. Free Wifi and DirectTV were a big plus. You're out in the countryside surrounded by cows and horses, but it's only a 15 minute drive into downtown Punta Gorda. I would recommend thing this rental and we will consider staying here again.
This charming country house is located just 10 Minutes east of the historical down town of Punta Gorda. Off Hwy 17 it is in close proximity to shopping, restaurants and medical services, but secluded, peaceful and quiet. From here you can reach the Interstate 75 within Minutes in order to reach the nearest larger towns such as Fort Myers and Sarasota, both about 1/2 hour drive. Go further East on Hwy 17 and you find the charming old town of Arcadia, a paradise for Antique Hunters and Rodeo Lovers. You can fish from your own dock in your backyard, take an eco tour or canoe trip or even bring your own boat, there is a boat ramp within this subdivision. Rental boats are also available near by and you can go on a day boat trip to nearby islands or on a Deep Sea Fishing tour with a tour company out of Fisherman's village. There is dance and live music at times in different places. In short: You and your family can find all sorts of things to do in order to have fun on your vacation.
