Charlotte Harbor, Peace River and Myakka River have always been a paradise for fishermen and nature lovers, who prefer the loneliness of nature to the bustle of the big tourist resorts.
The City Mall in Port Charlotte with its 100 shops and exciting boutiques is about 15 minutes away.

Villa Happy Days was just like a home away from home, very clean and well maintained, everything you need, the wifi is excellent, a short drive to the beach, with Publix and Walmart nearby, all in all a very comfortable home! We will be back !!!
Happy days house is very quite, clean and with all you can imagine for a wonderful stay in Florida and beaches (umbrella, bikes, internet access,). I have never seen a such incredible kitchen for a vacation rental. Everything is very high quality, new. The owner and manager are very professional.It's the best place to discover the "real Florida": Englewood beach are only at 10 mn from the House.
We just came back from our winter vacation at the Villa Happy Days. We had a wonderful time. Its a very nice villa, large, comfortable,clean, very well equiped and organized. There was a lot of informations in the villa and Esther, our agent. was very welcoming, available to answer our questions and a good guide for restaurants and activities.
The area is very quiet and near the beaches, grocery stores, nice restaurants ect.. We enjoyed it a lot and made our reservations for next year

We were very pleased with our holiday in this semi-detached villa. Everything was as described in the ad and the photos do not do it justice. The villa was very clean and welcoming, and the contact person on site was very helpful and friendly and suggested some interesting things to do and nice places to eat. We did not do everything, we have two teenage kids, we spent time on the beach, the water was really warm and the beaches are not crowded and mostly safe for younger children(there is a lifeguard at the public beaches)or, we lazed around the pool. We saw wild dolphins but we didn't see any manatees, although next time I'm sure we will.
We went fishing, horseriding,walking, shopping,cycling and had we wanted to, could have played loads of golf, tennis etc,because everything is never far away..
This is a typical "old Florida Town" the people are very friendly, I would say its not a place for young people looking to go clubbing,or in search of "adventure" although maybe the alligators.....but if you have children its a safe ,relaxing place to be. The villa is comfortable, well equiped (my adolescent kids appreciated the high speed internet connection) and Orlando is a 2hour 15min drive with all the theme parks etc and Miami 3hours away.
The contact with the owner was very good and the booking went very smoothly.
Trying to be objective, there is no "sea view" from the villa as it is not on the beach, it's beside a lake, and car rental is an absolute must as all the amenities, beach etc are nearby (10 to 15mins) if you drive. (supermarkets are 5mins away).I also have to say that the town is not exactly "jumping" in the evening,but, relaxing and watching the famous florida sunset around some of the excellent sea-food dishes in a nice restaurant is not bad either.
All in all we really enjoyed it and would go back ourselves, and highly recommend it to families and older people.
Eine Villa, die hält was sie verspricht! Das Haus ist eine absolute Oase der Erholung und liegt an einer Traumecke in Florida bei Englewood. Das Objekt befindet sich in einem sehr gepflegten Zustand und ist top ausgestattet, alles war so wie gewünscht und beschrieben.
Auch die Lage ist ausgezeichnet, in unmittelbarer Nähe befinden sich einige Restaurants, viele Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, diverse Golfplätze sowie das sehr schöne kristallblaue Meer mit langen weißen Sandstränden.
Eine nahe Einkaufstour zum Town Center bei Port Charlotte oder nach North Port in die Cocoplum Village Shops darf natürlich nicht fehlen.
Unser Geheimtipp ist die naturbelassene Schönheit beim Strand des Stump Pass Naturparks, welcher frei von jeglicher Zivilisation ist. Bei unseren Strandspaziergängen konnten wir dort Delfine und Manatis im offenen Meer beobachten. Robinson lässt grüssen…
Die Sonnenuntergänge in SW Florida gehören zu den Schönsten überhaupt.
Unvergesslich sind auch die Ausflüge in die verschiedenen, abenteuerlichen Freizeitparks wie Sea World, Disney World, Universal Studios in Orlando oder ein Besuch im Busch Gardens in Tampa. Ein Ordner mit vielen nützlichen Tipps befindet sich im Haus.
Wir haben uns in dem Ferienhaus wie Zuhause gefühlt und sind mit vielen schönen Erinnerungen nach Hause gegangen.
Ein großes Dankeschön nochmals an die Vermieter und der deutschsprachigen Betreuung vor Ort, die uns auch im Vorfeld bei unseren vielen Fragen sehr engagiert und freundlich unterstützt haben.
Wir kommen sicher wieder und können die Villa allen weiterempfehlen.
Wir haben schon öfters in Florida Urlaub gemacht und Ferienhäuser gemietet, aber die Villa Happy Days ist einfach nicht zu übertreffen !
Dieses liebevolle und bis ins Detail ausgestattete Haus lässt keine Wünsche offen. Die Villa ist sehr sehr gepflegt, hochwertig eingerichtet und vor allen Dingen ruhig gelegen.
Auch das benachbarte Clubhaus mit Pool ist sehr sauber und gut eingerichtet. Die zahlreichen und wunderschönen Strände und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind schnell erreicht.
Die unkomplizierte Abwicklung der Buchung mit dem Eigentümer war hervorragend sowie auch die Betreuung vor Ort.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und werden mit Sicherheit wiederkommen.
