About Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel

We have been married since 1967 and have one special daughter and son in law who light up our lives. We looked up and down the southwest coast of Florida for the perfect locations to spend some of our future vacations and perhaps retirement someday. We have always loved being near the beach. We were property owners on Emerald Isle, North Carolina and loved going there with family and friends for vacation. We now have a vacation home in Sarasota and love to imagine other happy families enjoying the pool and making wonderful vacation memories. We were so inspired that we decided to buy another house in Port Charlotte. This time we were looking for a house on a canal for boating and fishing.

Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel purchased this house in 2014

Why Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

It is well known that Port Charlotte is a fast emerging destination for those who are looking for the 'perfect' vacation rental. This community has invested millions in infrastructure to bring tourism and folks who want to live here permanently. The harbor has been developed for ideal fishing, boating and beach experiences. Warm throughout the year, it affords the perfect climate especially during the winter months. We picked this location for all these reasons. Coming from the Midwest we also wanted the rural pleasure of lots of trees and greenery. Port Charlotte has all the restaurants and shops of a large city yet there remains a country feeling as one drives by open spaces not yet developed. Our backyard canal is the perfect way to explore the many waterways whether you fish or simply want to go boating. It is a safe protected entry to the harbor. We also wanted a community that included a cultural environment. Great musical and artistic experiences are available. For the golfers, Port Charlotte has fantastic courses that are affordable. We wanted to be near the major highways such as I-75 that takes you quickly through Florida but far enough away to feel countryside solitude. You will notice that our house is on a road that has many open lots that are wooded and peaceful. We wanted it all and we found it here.

What makes this house unique

Port Charlotte is a place where everyone is from somewhere else.

The winter months are wonderful after coming from the cold northern states. The fishing and boating is incredible.

Fisherman's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this perfect location in Port Charlotte. Convenient to supermarkets and other shopping. The owners were fantastic with communication leading up to our stay as well as during if needed. The house was in great condition and the Lanai and pool area is a very relaxing place to spend your time after a day of fishing. I look forward to a return visit!

Tranquil nest.

  • 5 of 5

The home was warm and inviting. Description and pictures are exact. Property management team was welcoming and answered my call immediately. This gave us security in knowing if issues arose they would be there. They also texted to have a safe trip home. I thought that was very personable to care.

Very nice home

  • 5 of 5

First, we are a retired couple and have stayed in VRBO homes since the company began in the 90's. From Hawaii to NYC we use it a lot. Second, the property manager called us to introduce herself and explain a few things just prior to move in. That was very nice. We guess they live nearby and we never needed them but knowing they were there was nice. Four of us stayed at this home for a family reunion with relatives in North Port, FL. Had a wonderful time with great pool/screened deck area. The pictures are very accurate. Beds very comfortable. A/C very comfortable. Extremely quiet neighborhood. Close to restaurants but cooked on a great patio grill several times. One of our best rentals. Thanks Linda and Ernie.

Real Florida Sunshine

  • 4 of 5

We quickly needed to find a place for my family to stay when my Grandma passed and we were coming to North Port for the funeral. We couldn't have asked for a better home away from home. It was right on the canal and the guys enjoyed a few afternoons of fishing. We were close to shopping and everywhere we needed to be. The house was clean and the owner/property manager was always quickly responsive.

We would return and stay here under better circumstances!

Beautiful house, was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as the pictures, beautiful! The pool was used multiple times a day during our Christmas week stay and was awesome! We had no problem catching crabs in the cages and the kids loved it. Can't wait to go back again!
