Highly Recommended - All the Comforts of Home!

  • 5 of 5

Didn't we just get here? I can't believe it's time to leave already :(. We had a very nice time at your lovely home. Very comfy, cozy, updated, wonderful recliners, WIFI and TV!! My husband really enjoyed the weather as he could fish every day. He caught catfish, crabs and a puffer fish yesterday. We enjoyed watching the otter make his trek up and down the canal two weeks ago. He would swim right under the dock. We never did take the canoe to see the dolphins - big regret!

I enjoyed walking to the park at Charlotte Harbor as its only a little over a mile walk each way in a very safe neighborhood. The heated pool at the park has exercise classes several mornings a week and the beach and pier are nice places to get a tan, relax and read a book or watch a beautiful sunset. We enjoyed Siesta Keys (beautiful white sand beach), Englewood and Boca Grande (WOW kind of town) beaches as well - all within an hour's drive each way. Gots lots of shells for the grandkids! Took in the weekly flea/produce market in Ft. Myers and lots of local Port Charlotte yard sales. My sister-in-law and I went to Key West for five days via a 3 1/2 hour ferry ride from Fort Myers Beach. Was a great vacation within a vacation away from the hubbies!! Lots of bars to check out and new drinks to try! We even went on a seaplane from Key West Airport to the Dry Tortugas National Park. While there we went snorkeling with the free snorkeling equipment they gave us to use. We saw some beautiful fish! We also took a guided bike tour of Key West with Key Lime Bike Tours - highly recommended. And, lastly we put our big girl panties on and went parasailing with Fury Adventures. Loved it!!

We highly recommend this lovely house in a very quiet neighborhood. At the same time there are so many restaurants, places to shop, and activities to do just a short distance from the house along Highway 41. Thank you Cari and Sean for sharing your house with us!

Very clean house, quiet neighborhood, near beaches

  • 5 of 5

This house can definitely be highly recommended! First of all the communication with the owner was easy and quick. The house is easy to get to, in a quiet neighborhood. The bedrooms are nicely decorated. We enjoyed the canal in the back and kayak access to the nearby bay. Stores are not far away. With our kids we went to Englewood Beach and Siesta Key Beach, which both were gorgeous. We loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Uwe! Im glad you took the kayaks out to the nearby Alligator Bay and enjoyed time at the beaches. We love the quietness as well! Our house is kept Dutch clean as we vacation a lot and often the homes are not even close to what they have advertised...I'm happy that we could be a part of your family's memories! Kind Regards, Cari

The house was very clean and homey. We were very well pleased.

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time using a vacation rental. We were very well pleased and Cari was a charm to work with. We did have to do a bit of driving to get to some of the bigger attractions and beaches. We visited St Pete's, John's Pass, and The Mote Acquatic Lab and the Fisherman's Village were some of the places we visited. The quys took a charter fishing trip right out of Punta Gorda. The quiet neighborhood was a plus for us. The girls enjoyed the kayak that was there for use. The house was equipped with more than the necessities. Thanks again Cari and Sean for the enjoyable stay. :) The Waletzki's

Owner's Response: Hello, Glad you enjoyed your stay. For the record, we are 1 mile from the Beach Club ans 10 minutes to Fishermans Village. The other places you visited like St Pete's are a bit of a drive, maybe you should book a home closer north next time if it is on your list again. I'm glad the girls enjoyed the kayak and you had fun. Thanks for the review!

Exactly as advertised - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We were here for the month and found the home exactly as advertised ! Great location as everything needed was within a 15-20 min drive. The home is very neat and very comfortable. Cari maintains excellent communication and readily provides information on the many attractions in the area. This property is excellent value, reasonably priced and the canal is a real bonus !

Comforable home

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week in this home. It was very comfortable. We were about 1 mile from a small beach which we enjoyed. The kitchen had all the items needed to cook a good meal.
