Truely a Home Away from Home! Did not want to leave!!

  • 5 of 5

This home made our vacation a perfect 10. When we booked this house it had no reviews. We thought it could be a gamble, but we hit the jackpot! This home is extremely comfortable, well stocked, and located close to everything you would need to have a successful vacation.

First, let's talk about comforts and amenities. My husband and I traveled down to Port Charlotte with another couple. We selected this home because of the 2 main bedrooms. We figured each couple would have a large bedroom (King and Queen). Each bedroom was spacious, plenty of clean linens, pillows, storage, and TVs. Extremely comfortable. Each bedroom had their own very clean and well stocked bathrooms. The 2 large bedrooms are located on opposite ends of the home. Which gave each couple their privacy. This was a pleasant surprise. The wing of the home with the queen also had the bedroom with the bunk beds. This would be great if you were traveling with children. The kitchen, living room, office, and laundry room are located in the center of the house. The open floor plan and access to the pool area made this home perfect for entertaining and making wonderful new memories. The screened pool and patio were fabulous to sip coffee in the morning and watch the birds in the canal. Then in the evening, barbecue and go for a night swim.

I could spend this entire review commenting on how wonderfully stocked and equipped this home was. From sunscreen to swimming goggles. Let's just say, if the airlines lost your luggage you could still have a great vacation. Just stop and buy a swim suit.

The kitchen has everything you need to make Thanksgiving dinner (food excluded). We went to the nearby grocery store for food and the kitchen had everything we needed to make great meals. Thanks Holly for sharing your well equipped kitchen. Spices, k-cups, paper towels and even wine in the rack (remember to pay back for the next visitors). Felt like home.

Both bathrooms were well stocked with clean towels. Beach towels, games, beach chairs, bikes, fishing poles, paper products, over the counter meds, to many goodies to list.

Even the laundry room made dirty clothes fun. It helped us keep up with everything.

Seven guests could vacation in this home very comfortably. We would not hesitate to return to this home. We would like to thank our host Holly for sharing her FL home with us. Your comfortable home will always be a part of our family's most cherished memories. Thank You

The property exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

I’ve rented many homes in the Port Charlotte area over the years and this place is hands down above the rest. I’ve stayed in large 5 bedroom places that were big and spacious, but Holly’s place topped that with all the amenities and personal charm. Everything you could imagine needing, they had. I look forward to renting from Holly for years to come.
