About Christa Murch & Jack Falitico

I immigrated to US in 1978 and I am now a proud US citizen.

I fulfilled my American dream to be a Realtor and to own rental properties that I offer to tourists and vacationers. I take pride of my properties and furnished them in a Florida style that provides this special vacation feeling !

I love the out doors and enjoy gardening therefor I managed to design and build a luscious , tropical landscape with palms, coconut and many other subtropical plants. Come and enjoy this relaxing and peaceful setting in the Florida Sunshine.

Christa Murch & Jack Falitico purchased this house in 1986

Why Christa Murch & Jack Falitico chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

1)This property is centrally located to stores, restaurants, beaches, fishing pier and nature park, also a dog run park within walking distance. In fact, you really don't need a car if you want to stay near the house. You can reach many places within 1 mile by foot or by bicycle ( that is supplied ) . There are walk ways and bicycle trails around this area.

2) This property offers maximum privacy and features a swimming pool, a hot tub and is located directly on a saltwater canal with a patio and a dock at the waterway. Fish right from the back yard. We also feature a gazebo for your outside dining and card playing . The gas BBQ provides outside cooking for the people who like to grill. You may invite your friends for a grill party under the stars. Enjoy yourself and make yourself at home. Many guests are returning year after year.

3) The home is light, open and cheerfully furnished with typical Florida Style furniture. We feature a fully equipped kitchen and full size laundry equipment.

The home is fully tiled with white tile floors and therefor hygienic and allergy proof.

We invite you to bring your pooch for a small extra fee. The yard is fenced and a luscious and dense flora provides complete privacy.

Come and visit.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and had a great time! An electrician came the first day for 6 hours but after that we were alone and enjoyed all aspects of the house. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed as far as cooking utensils.There was a washer and dryer that made being there a week easy. The pool was great but the ducks really didnt like sharing. The beach was very close and there was everything literally right around the corner!! We really enjoyed the hot tub. Christa, the owner, was so sweet and very easy to work with and I would love to go back and stay there again.

Owner's Response: This was not the first "honeymoon" couple.... the house and backyard setting is very private and shielded from neighbors ,so therefor it really makes a wonderful "honeymoon suite"... PS: the electrician was there because the couple had cancelled first ( that's when I called for the electrician) but then they decided to come. With their permission I did keep the electrician on appointment which was a good thing, because we discoverd an additional item that needed attention....I am avoiding any repairs ( large or small) during times when my guests are in. Thank you for understanding.

Everything was Great!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, equipped with just about everything we needed. The pool was to die for and enjoyed it just about every day of our week long stay. Close to grocery, pharmacy and good eateries. The property was clean and well maintained and while Jack did his chores he was never obvious. Full kitchen with washer and dryer, loads of dishes, towels for all events/needs - just like home but we were on the opposite coast. We would highly recommend this site and found the Home Away site very easy. Thank You So Much for an enjoyable stay.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very clean and comfortable home. The pool was excellent and surprisingly deep. The hot tub was great to relax in at the end of the day. It's on a canal so if your into boating or kayaking it's great location. Only one fixed bridge to pass to get out of the neighborhood. Make sure to check with Jack or Christa to verify height clearance before you rent a boat. Which by the way, affordable weekly boat rentals are available in the area. We brought our kayak with us so we didn't rent a boat this trip. We traveled with our 3 dogs. The yard is fenced but open to the canal. So it depends on how well behaved your dogs are around water. This is a great area but it is Florida so there are alligators. We never saw any in the canal but we were warned that it was a possibility. So you should use caution and never leave your dogs around the canal unattended. It is a dog friendly area. Nice quiet streets with sidewalks to amble along and we met several of the nice neighbors out walking their dogs. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook a lovely meal. There is a full size washer and dryer to keep up with the laundry (mostly towels from the beach and pool). The location is a perfect jumping off point. We went to seven different beaches in seven days on this trip. From the sugary white sand of Siesta key beach to the amazing black sand of Venice beach you will not be disappointed. If your into kayaking like us, we highly recommend going to the blind pass park on Manasota key. There are two kayak launches with great parking. You can kayak with the manatees in lemon bay then walk across the road and swim at the beach. And to make it even more perfect there are restrooms and showers to clean up so you can grab a bite to eat before you head back. Speaking of eating, Jack was wonderful at recommending restaurants for us. He lives in Punta Gorda, just across the river and knows the area well. Jack came by several times during our stay to keep the yard and pool in tip top shape for us. He was never intrusive at all. He even took the trash and recycling cans to the curb for us. Super nice guy. We were disappointed that we didn't get to meet Christa this trip as she was traveling abroad. All of our communications with her were very pleasant and quite helpful. The only recommendations I would make for the house is installing a vent fan in the bathroom, it can get really steamy when you shower. Overall, it was a great stay!

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived Christa (owner) and Jack (caretaker) were both there, and both very nice people. The house was nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. The air conditioner worked great and the pool and hot tub were great. Jack supplied us with new tiki torch lights because the other ones were rusted and not working. Before I rented this place I asked Christa if I could rent a pontoon boat because I saw a dock and she said yes. So I rent one but unfortunately there's a bridge you have to go under that's very low and will probably only fit a very small boat. She let me dock the boat at her house but I was disappointed that I couldn't dock it at the house. This is a reason why I picked this place and this is why I gave it a 4 star. Christa was very responsive in my phone or text messages. So if you are not interested in renting a boat and docking it here, then it's a great place.

Owner's Response: These were very nice guests friendly and polite. They were supposed to rent a 20' Pontoon boat, which would have fit the bridge...however the boat my guests rented was 25' which makes a big difference in the clearance. I did provide a docking space for their rental boat at my personal house. I have now up-dated my website for this vacation home and entered more specific information for this bridge. I am sorry about what happened and I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
