About Michelle or Walt

We are the owners of a Cherry farm in Northern Michigan and an excavating company. Our cherry farm is a small you-pick farm where families come and go out with buckets to pick cherries for themselves. It has been going since 1870 and some of the trees are over 100 years old. Its great to live on a farm with so much history. We work very hard during the summer months and need a peaceful break in the winter. We have come down to the Port Charlotte area for 8 years. We absolutely love it !! Our hope is to one day retire down here.

Michelle or Walt purchased this house in 2004

Why Michelle or Walt chose Harbour Heights

We love the convenience of being close to some fantastic beaches,and being able to go biking and kayaking. We love just jumping on I -75 and going anywhere, yet we live in nice quiet neighborhood. Our heated pool is completely private with an occasional fisherman going down the canal. Such tranquility and relaxation !!

What makes this house unique

We have a double lot. which means our neighbors are not on top of us. In fact there are no neighbors across the canal or across the road. Our children have been able to play, ride bikes and have fun and just be kids . The side yard is also fenced in to provide safety for children or pets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your fabulous florida home. Our family enjoyed such a relaxing time!! Shopping was easy to find and not far away and the heated pool was fantastic. Our daughters practically lived in it. We loved Venice Beach just 20 minutes north and hunting for sharks teeth on the beach!! Your home was an incredible blessing for us. We look forward to staying again !!

Great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time during our stay at Michelle and Walt's place. The home was large enough for 2 family's to share comfortably. It was well stocked with everything you need, it even had the shovels needed to go shark teeth hunting at Venice Beach, which I highly recommend doing! We enjoyed the motor boat and caught several different types of fish in the canal with both fishing poles and our casting net. The pool was pleasant, clean and refreshing and fully stocked with pool supplies. The home is centrally located and close to shopping centers. The kids and I took bike rides to the local park, where the squirrels would take food right out of our hands! The caretakers were very friendly and helpful. They even took time out of day to teach the boys how to properly throw the casting net. We had a great vacation. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us!

Great relaxing spot

  • 5 of 5

We liked everything about our stay at Walt and Michelle's home in Punta Gorda. The house was comfortable and well appointed with everything we needed for our stay.

The house opened up to the pool area from multiple rooms and the pool area was very relaxing with a view of the canal and area beyond where there was not another house in site. Plenty of bird activity for the watching. Boating down the canal to the Peace river and trying a little fishing is right at your finger tips.

The area has a rural quiet feel yet is only minutes away from golfing, dining and shopping.

I highly recommend a visit.

Comfortable and enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Initially we were hesitant to book our stay here since we didn't have the option to pay with credit card through the Home Away site. We decided to take the chance and paid with check and hoped for the best. Everything was confirmed with the owner once the check was cashed as well as through Home Away so that was a great reassurance.

The home was everything as described in the listing. We used the canoe and it worked great. We caught fish in the channel and the pool was the perfect temperature. We were well taken care of and the grounds' keeper and woman who cleaned the house provided helpful tips for our stay.

The area is a few miles to shopping and everything you need, yet it feels like you are away from it all in a nice quiet neighborhood. Very relaxing and a perfect setting.

This was the second year we rented this house and had it for 6 weeks.

The house has everything you need and then some to enjoy the area. We feel so much at home when we are there. Peter the care taker responds to any issues quickly no matter how small they might be.

If you are looking for a quiet family vacation this is the place.

Harbor Heights is known as a bird sanctuary,You can feed scrub jays peanuts. The fishing is great right off of our dock or by boat. Each night we sit on the dock and watch the fish jump out of the water. Our side yard is also fenced in for pet or childrens safety.
