Easy access from I-75 to go North or South and only 40 minutes from the Ft. Myers airport. You can shop in either Punta Gorda or Port Charlotte as well as finding fine dining or live entertainment. There are plenty of beautiful golf courses, excellent fishing and sandy beaches.
The home has a dock for fishing or boat parking. The pool is heated, screened and has a covered lanai. There is a fabulous new kitchen has granite tops and stainless steel appliances featuring a gas cook top, electric oven, steam oven, dishwasher, side by side refrigerator, microwave, warming drawer. There are three spacious bedrooms and three full baths. The master bedroom suite on the second floor overlooks the river and pool and has its own huge bath with separate his and her vanities and television. The master closet is big enough for two large pieces of furniture plus plenty of racks and shelving for his and her clothing.

There is a Maytag Neptune washer and dryer in utility room.
Disney, SeaWorld and Universal are only 2 1/2 hours away. 10 Minutes to miniature golf, 10 minutes to regular golf, 1 minute to great fishing. Fisherman's Wharf, a complex of shopping and restaurants on the water overlooks the Charlotte Harbor is just a short drive. From your backyard you can occasionally see Manatees, Dolphins and even a giant ray as well as fish jumping with joy. You can also take a day cruise to Key West from Fort Myers or Captiva or Sanabel Island. Boca Grande Beach or Manasota Key beaches are just a short drive away where shelling and sharks teeth abound for the taking.
This home is located on a very large lot in a very nice setting on the Peace River in Punta Gorda. The home is conveniently located to major highways, shops, grocery stores and restaurants. In making the arrangements to rent this property for the month of March, 2016 I asked the owner because this is an older property if everything was working at the house and he confirmed that it was. We were fortunate that the weather was very nice during our stay. This is what transpired during our stay:
A) The large recycle container at the house was completely full.
B) The home has very limited landscaping.
C) Certain areas within the home (cupboards) and the outside of the home need a major cleanup.
D) There was no kettle at the house to even boil water.
E) The house has very limited bedding and towels which are aged.
F) The soffit on the west end of the house is almost falling down.
G) The soffit on the northwest corner of the house is hanging down.
H) The double mattress in the bedroom on the first floor is completely unacceptable.
I) The front window of the house was very dirty.
J) The condition of the barbecue was an absolute disgrace. It has never been cleaned.
K) Single car garage was unavailable for use.
L) Smoke alarms had to be replaced on the third day (traveler helped).
M) No working carbon monoxide in the house despite a gas stove. Installed on third day (Traveler helped).
N) Dock at water is not level.
O) Pool heating system was not working. Advised owner. Control panel on pool heater had blown off the heater by Hurricane Charlie in 2004 and was never replaced. After numerous service calls, E-Mails, telephone calls and vacation interruptions, pool heater was finally fixed on March 22, 2016.
P) Toilet on the main floor between the two bedrooms was leaking water at the base. Permanent stains on the floor was evident. I suspect it was the O ring. Owner was not advised as we did not want another vacation interruption. Other bathroom on the main floor was used.
Q) On March 29, 2016 the Air Conditioning Unit on the second floor stopped working. Owner was advised but service was deferred by us as we were leaving on March 31, 2016 to return home
Due to the condition of this house as indicated above, the constant problems that arose, the numerous service calls and the refusal by the owner to provide any compensation for the non functioning pool heater, we would not rent this house again, nor would we recommend this home.
We stayed at this property from July 1 - July 9, 2016. The house looks exactly like it is pictured. Dave was great through the entire process. He has a new grill for us the day after we got there. We had a few issues with the ac. Dave was easy for me to get a hold of and he had someone out that day to have it fixed and it was! The backyard is absolutely beautiful. We literally spent most of our time out there. I would highly recommend this property!
Just what the dr. ordered! Great trip, great place, great experience with owner. A++ all around. Would book again!
This place was great!! It was more than we were expecting. There were 7 of us (4 adults, 3 kids)and we had plenty of room. Dave was great to communicate with. We will definitely look into this property again.
We stayed for Labor Day weekend 2014. 3 Days. Had a great stay with friends. We docked our boat. Had easy access. Fished off the dock. Caught more fish off the dock than in the boat. Hope to do it again soon...
Thank You Dave! Great Place to stay. Enjoyed it thoroughly. :)
My son, granddaughter and I, along with our dog, enjoyed the June vacation so much, we returned for another week in August. The house is great; wish I could bring the kitchen home with me! The beds are very comfortable; after spending time in the fresh air watching my granddaughter enjoy the pool, we all slept well. We enjoyed dinner most evenings at the house, but went out a couple of times & especially enjoyed the fresh seafood at Village Fishmarket. The views are beautiful from the family room, and the balcony off the master bedroom. Having access to a bath and shower from the pool is great. We had absolutely everything we needed except more time to spend there. Oh well, there's always next year!
The owner was very easy to work with, and my deposit was promptly returned. I highly recommend this beautiful, clean, well-maintained property. So does the dog!
