Why Janice leyden chose Port Charlotte

We love this home. It's located on a quiet street with wonderful view of the bay. The sailboat access canal brings the Florida outdoor living to the backyard. Sailing, boating, fishing, shelling are yours to enjoy anytime of the year.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I've used Homeaway/VRBO several times and have to say that this is the first time that the property turned out to be *BETTER* than the pictures! This house is HUGE and easily accommodated our families and teenage children. We stayed 5 days and we never felt like we were on top of each other and in each other's space. The pool is large, clean and refreshing. The adjacent back patio is perfect for the adults to lounge and talk while the kids swim. There is a spa, which we were excited about, but unfortunately did not use because the chemicals were "off" and a bit too overpowering to spend any time in it without coughing up a lung. It was definitely NOT a detraction to the stay, though, as there was so much more for us to enjoy.

There is a 2-person kayak and the kids enjoyed being paddled around the canal areas. The kitchen is super-spacious and equipped with all the modern touches and quality cookware. There was also fishing equipment and bicycles provided in the garage, which was a nice touch.

Janice was very friendly and easy to work with. It was obvious her main concern was our comfort during our stay.

The house is located in a beautiful neighborhood and felt very safe. There is a Publix and ABC Liquor less than 5 minutes away (what else do you need, really?) :P Overall, we felt right at home during our stay and would highly recommend this property.

Great home, relaxing and accommodating owners

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here with my girlfriend , her daughter and another couple for long 4 day weekend. Was a giant house for us and could easily accommodate many more people. The home was very nice and exactly as advertised, perhaps even nicer in person then the photos demonstrate. We trailered a boat down and kept at dock. The dock was in great shape, had plenty of deep water and easy ride to harbor. Janice (owner) was responsive and helpful throughout the entire process, start to finish was a top notch process.

Our son's summer wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself, son, daughter-in-law and baby, and sister all stayed at this most beautiful and accommodating home for 5 nights. There was even a crib there that was perfect! Janice was wonderful to work with and answered promptly any questions that we had. It was fabulous and more than we could have hoped for. All the plates, utensils, etc. that you need and then some! The spacious home gave everyone their privacy but also never far away to enjoy each other. We used the pool constantly day and night and the hot tub. Terrific location and family actually came and picked us up by boat for a day outing! Went fishing right off the dock and visited many beaches within close range! I would highly say "stay here", it is absolutely perfect and I plan on using it again!!!!!! Also the lanai is great if it rains, still outside but kept dry! One of our best vacations ever!

90th Birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend for a 90th birthday celebration. We had four generations celebrating and everyone had a great time. This home was beautiful, clean, roomy and the kitchen supplied us with an abundance of glasses, dishes, pots, pans, etc. We had a WONDERFUL time. The pool & lanai was used constantly by everyone. The sun is on the pool the whole day but if you want to be in the shade, there is a sitting area with table, chairs and lounges that is shaded. The area is beautiful & you can bike to the beach. Bikes and a kayak are supplied. I would HIGHLY recommend this home. My only complaint is that we didn't stay long enough!!!! Thank you so much Janice, you helped make my mother's 90th birthday a huge success!!!
