What a wonderful experience, Thank You Alan! Extremely hesitate at first having never done this before as far as payment up front, Very patient with any and all questions. As far as the house.... GREAT, didn't need anything but cloths and food. You can't find that at any hotel, I will never do the hotel scene again if possible. I can't wait to go back again. You won't be sorry.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our rental during our stay in Port Charlotte. It had all we needed including dishes, pots and pans, towels, telephone, internet, cable TV and more! We enjoyed the pool area and the location was very convenient for shopping, going to the beach and fine dining! Thank you so much.

Truly a Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in several of Alan's properties in Port Charlotte over the past 12 years. Without exception, the descriptions are less than accurate! (The homes far exceed the amenities listed).

Customer service both by Alan and by the on site management company has always been excellent. Calls are always returned on time, emergencies (whether minor or major) are always dealt with quickly and courteously. In many instances the on site management have stored items on our behalf from year to year, and this has been very much appreciated.

Without hesitation, I would recommend Alan's properties to friends and relatives. They are ideally suited for family vacations as well as more intimate getaways. You move out of your own home and immediately on arrival feel that you have moved into your own vacation home.

My husband and I are semi-retired and have enjoyed the ability to carry on business activities due to internet and phone privileges, in the Florida sun, rather than the frigid north. We typically enjoy having our children and grandchildren visit. They have enjoyed their time with us so much that I would fully expect them to carry on the tradition long after we are unable to do so.

The restaurants in Port Charlotte and vicinity are numerous and suit all budgets. For a special night (for adults) out I would highly recommend The Perfect Caper in Punta Gorda.

If you are thinking of renting your own detached home in Florida, I would highly recommend one of Alan's homes.
