Punta Gorda

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. Very homey and comfortable. 1 house from beach which is great, take things in morning and leave all day. Nice fenced in yard for our 4 legged family. Kitchen is the best room, I've not even been in a rental where everything was there and available to use. Great pots and pans and cooking utensils. Master bedroom spacious and comfy! All and all just a great place to stay we reserved for the next year and hope to do again!!!

Relaxing, Convenient, Our favorite place to go!

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat renters at The Sandbox. We love the proximity of the beautiful and quiet gulf beach. (Only one house to walk past to get to the beach and no street to cross!) The Sandbox has a wonderful upper level deck from which you can view the gulf waters. The private outside shower is perfect for cleaning up after hitting the beach and the large fenced in yard is perfect for the 4 legged family members. (It is almost IMPOSSIBLE to find a fenced yard at the beach.) The home is nicely decorated with a variety of movies, books, puzzles and beach toys/chairs. The master suite is spacious & comfortable.

Perfect home away from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this cozy house from the moment we walked in the door! From the great collection of books and movies to the board games and beach toys for the kids, Lisa and Tom truly went above and beyond to make us feel at home. This was my children's first ever experience at a beach and they enjoyed every moment of it, whether it was rolling straight out of bed to run to the beach or watching the waves at night from the comfort of the hammock, we never had a dull moment!

Awesome vacation home. Every amenity possible!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to relax and still have plenty to do for kids and adults. Views are amazing. The house is incredible. You don't have to bring a thing. From a perfectly stocked kitchen set up to linens, games, books and beach gear...nothing has been overlooked. Great price. Literally steps to the beach. Watch sea turtles at night and dolphins in the morning. Love it. It's a family tradition!
