About The Owner

My husband and I have lived here in Florida for 13 years now. We are originally from NJ and have since claimed Fl as our home. We enjoy the weather and when we miss the snow we go back to visit it and quickly realize why we moved down here. Our home is our second home and we would love to share it with you so you as well can enjoy what we have come to love--the Florida life style and best of all the weather!

Our kids enjoy all summer sports and this makes Fl an ideal state for us. We invite you to enjoy our home and state as well.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose North Port

We liked the area, and it was in Sarasota County which at the time had a great school district.

What makes this house unique

Brand new stores have come our way in the last year and are about 1.5 miles away--they include Ross, TJ MAXX, Hobby Lobby, the Sports Authority, a new Publix food store, Panera Bread, A Japanese Restaurant, and the existing Walmart, Lowes, and Home Depot. Just south on 41 in Port Charlotte 4 miles away is a mall and many other restaurants and shops to enjoy...North of us is the town of Venice and all of its beach type charm!

Very Nice Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We found the home to be exactly as described. Very clean and well maintained. Furnished with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. The home is located in a very nice, quiet neighborhood close to shopping and restaurants. Easy access to both I-75 and US 41. The owners are extremely nice and eager to please.

This is a very spacious and clean home that is located on a quiet street in North Port. The people that own the home are quite a nice couple. The home is a great deal as it is reasonably priced. The location for this home is excellent for getting to the local beaches. It's also really close to restaurants and stores. There is plenty to do in around Venice, Punta Gorda and the Englewood area and it's a perfect location for getting places easily and quickly, including getting onto I-75. There are 2 bicycles to ride, which make it so easy for getting exercise and there plenty of area to walk through the neighborhood. We have really enjoyed our stay there for the past two years.

Our Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We found this home to be very comfortable, spacious, clean and in a good location.

It is furnished well and had most all the utensils we needed in the kitchen.

The master bathroom has two (his and her) walk-in closets which we dearly loved.

Our daughter stayed with us for awhile and it was nice having the master bedroom on one side of the month and the other two bedrooms on the other side. I would definitely recommend this property. The location is great. It is close to shopping in North Port,

Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Englewood, Venice and is about an hour away from Sanibel Island. We also went to the Hardrock Casino in Tampa. I-75 is only several miles away.

The owners responded quickly to our questions and we definitely will be returning.

North Port is a lovely growing community. It is just south of Venice and close to Sarasota. The lifestyle is laid back and the area our home is in is private, quiet and serene. You can bicycle ride or walk in the community and it is a safe neighborhood for children and adults. The beaches are not crowded and parking is always free! For night life entertainment Sarasota and St Armands Circle are a must to see - even Marina Jacks dining on the water is breathtaking!
