Relax and enjoy the tranquility of this 'Beautiful Waterfront' villa that sits on a tip lot with 145 feet of waterfront. It has been newly furnished to afford all the comforts of home.

The sunny, spacious great room invites you to relax while enjoying TV or a movie on a LCD TV and DVD player.

The kitchen comes fully equipped for either cooking-up a quick snack or a full course meal. Dine at the breakfast bar or kitchen nook with a beautiful view of two intersecting canals.

The master suite has a comfortable queen-sized bed, LCD TV, and the en suite bath has a walk in shower. One guest bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the other guest room has twin beds. They both share the second bath.

You can enter the newly built, over sized lanai through the sliders of the kitchen nook, great room, or master suite. Swim in the new custom pool and barbecue with family and friends.

This villa also features your own private dock and boat lift, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, portable grill, bicycle, and fishing poles .

With either a morning cup of coffee or tea, or an evening cocktail, observe the beautiful herons, jumping mullets, and maybe even an alligator or two.

BEACHES- Boca Grande, Englewood, Venice, Fort Myers, Siesta Key and many more are within 10 to 60 minutes away. GOLF- Some of the best 9 or 18 hole courses are minutes from your doorstep.

RESTAURANTS- From fine dining to casual beach front cafes, this area can accommodate all your culinary tastes. WATER SPORTS- Rent jet skis, boats, or charter fishing vessels at nearby marinas.

SHOPPING- North, east, south, or west there is a shopping area just waiting to be sampled. Visit Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda or St. Armand's Circle just a stone's throw away from Sarasota.

Had a wonderful stay here! Awesome pool that the kids loved and swam in it every day! Beautiful view of the canal where we could see birds and fish.

Lovely Canal side home

  • 4 of 5

The home was very beachy and plenty of room. It was very clean and had everything we needed during our stay.

While the Publix and Walmat were close it was a 30 minute drive to Nortport and a little more to Venice and Punta Gourda. But we enjoyed sitting on the screened lanai by the pool and canal, we didnt feel the need to go out as much. Overall a very pleasant stay. Thanks Lou and Rita.

Amazing home! Teriffic location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific house; very well maintained and clean with an excellent location at the end of quiet canals. The pool was nicely maintained and spotless. Double sliding doors open from the living room to the lanai area adding functional outdoor space to the home. The lanai has a good sized patio table and barbeque.

The kitchen is very well stocked and in

general, the layout of the home is practical and convenient. The master bedroom has a spacious bathroom and walk-in shower and is separated from the other two bedrooms and second bathroom by the living room and kitchen, providing privacy and space for families/teens. There's ample room for everyone to lounge and relax.

The house is 20 minutes from several  local beaches and all are outstanding. It's minutes away from a Publix grocery store.

The home is in a very quiet location--we rarely even saw neighbours. It has easy access to all local amenities. The street has very little traffic and the surrounding neighbourhood is quiet and suitable for biking or walks.

Thanks to Lou and Rita for their excellent service. We will be booking this home with them again!

Beautiful Home With Much To Offer

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a beautiful location. Clean, comfortable, nicely maintained, well-appointed with many little extras (pool noodles, bikes, coolers, etc). Kitchen was fully stocked with plates, glasses, cups, flatware and cookware. We didn't want for anything during our stay except for more time. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, relaxing view, heated pool, the grill and the lanai. Layout is open and airy while providing privacy for the bedrooms and bathrooms. My sister and her husband and I stayed here for 16 days. We have rented many vacation homes through the years and this was by far the best one. Lou and Rita were great. Easy to deal with and quick to address the one small problem we did have. Definitely would consider staying here again.

Fantastic home in a quiet neighbourhood!

  • 5 of 5

This home was very clean and well maintained! Everything that you need is already there. The best parts of the property were the pool, the view from the lanai, the wildlife, the lighted palm tree and the open concept. Our questions were answered promptly and booking the property was very easy. Thank you Lou and Rita for your fabulous customer service!

Loved my rental May 2012

  • 5 of 5

The house was described right.It was perfect

The house was well maintained.

The owner provided good customer service. There was a file full of all the information we needed,even what wildlife to be careful of,there was even a book that explained about all the wild life in Florida.

I would recommend the property to every one

My family enjoyed swimming,fishing-remember to buy a fishing licence. We loved Bob Evans for breakfast, The Outback for dinner.

Loved Wallmart
