Quiet Private Setting
This was the perfect vacation home for us. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood and with undeveloped lots on either side and backing on to a canal the pool and back yard is totally private. The home is very well appointed and well maintained. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a quiet getaway.
It was a pleasure having you! Enjoy your travels! We hope to see you again!
This place is great. It’s well maintained and beautifully decorated. It’s close to everything but peaceful and quiet. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to going again.
Thank you Courtney! I am glad you enjoyed your stay! We stay diligent in maintaining the house. It is one of our favorite places on earth! We hope you can join us again!
Exactly as described!
Sue and Lou are exceptionally pleasant and quick to answer any questions or solve any issues , we had one of each. The first was me not being able to get the TV in the bedroom to work, a quick phone call later and their able neighbor resolved the issue. I hadn't checked the batteries in the remote! They were in backwards. duh. The second more serious issue was the water heater springing a leak ! This could have had a major negative impact on our stay but Lou keeps a plumbing service on call for emergencies and the leaking heater was replaced with a brand spanking new unit the next morning! Their home is warm, inviting and very clean. The pool and lanai were great for relaxing. The canal is interesting even though we saw none of those famous Florida alligators. If there was anything not just about perfect it would be that the beds were too soft for us both, we prefer a firmer sleep surface but we slept it off! All said , Sue and Lou provided a near perfect home for us to enjoy and we recommend their home to anyone seeking to enjoy a slice of Florida heaven.
Thank you Tim! It was a pleasure having you!
Tranquil Canal Home
The title is correct. This home is tranquil. It is located on a quiet street with a canal in back. Fun to watch turtles and an occasional gator swim by. Loved to have morning coffee on lanai listening to the birds and watching wildlife. Very peaceful, private and well equipped home. One of our favorite things was the fact that we could open the home for a beautiful breeze all day long. Only having to run air conditioning in the evening was so refreshing. The homeowners Sue and Lou were great to work with and always quick to answer any questions.The pool was wonderful. The solar heat is fantastic. We will return.

FABULOUS VACATION HIDEAWAY
The tropical foliage tucked among a wildlife canal was majestic!! A safe zone amongst distant neighbors. Accessible to (N) Gulf beaches and (S) lovely BonitaSprings /Naples. One day trips to island resorts like Anne Marie and Sanibel islands makes it worthwhile. Not to mention the upscale consignments and outlets where one could shop till you drop. The location, household maintenance, owners' cumlauderee, diverse cuisines', truly make this a West coast paradise and bargain rental getaway!!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your vacation! We hope you choose to stay in our home again!
Don't want to leave!
Today is Valentine's Day and I am half way through my month here. I don't want to leave! Today is a cool day, only about sixty, but the pool is so protected that I am sitting out here in my bathing suit enjoying the warmth and total tranquility this wonderful home provides. However, it has ruined me in a way, as now I will always want a vacation property with no neighbour on either side and one on the other side of the canal. The sounds of the birds in the morning make you feel you are truly removed from the traffic-laden roads of southern Florida. It's a wonderful piece of paradise! Thanks Susan.
We are delighted you are enjoying your stay! The serenity of the setting is very special to us too! Thank you for choosing to stay in our North Port home - one of our favorite places on Earth! We hope you will return next year!

There is easy access to Interstate 75 for travel to Disney, Everglades and more.
