About Ron and Sharie Holben
Your Hosts: Ron and Sharie Holben. We live in Sturgis Michigan and are retired from the drinking water and water well industry. For 7 years we had a vacation home in Wawa, Ontario Canada. About 4 hours north of Michigan's upper peninsula. We had 200' of pristine lakefront, sandy beach and clear water. We were entirely off the grid, no power, no phone no Internet. Ah paradise. In the spring of 2013 we decided it was time for a change. We sold the cabin and the search began for the perfect southern vacation home. We looked in Florida, Texas and several other States. We decided on Port Charlotte for it's proximity to the gulf, all the activities in the area, and terrific weather year round. The bonus was having restaurants and shopping so close and amazing neighbors, in an extremely quiet residential neighborhood.
Ron and Sharie Holben purchased this House in 2014
Why Ron and Sharie Holben chose Port Charlotte
This is the perfect property, if you want quiet relaxation with your own private pool and dock on a salt water canal. And.... you also want to be close to all the shops and restaurants. You CAN have it all. Plus, we are only about 20 minutes from the gulf beaches
What makes this House unique
We have just started to discover all the area has to offer. We hope you will fall in love with Port Charlotte and the Gulf Islands, as we did and enjoy exploring the uncrowded beaches, quaint shops and excellent dining.

Great house and location
My family and I have stayed here twice and it was a great experience both times. Very easy to communicate with owners when needed. Love staying at this house!
We enjoyed having your family stay at Idle Days and look forward to your next vacation.
Get the best at an excellent price!
This home is very comfortable, great beds, wonderful lanai and pool. Back lawn leads to swing and chairs down at the canal. Fishing for us was successful and fun.
Owners are great people and they have done such a good job organizing everything you need for your stay. We will be returning every springs. Thanks Ron & Sharie
We are so glad that you both had an excellent time. I know one big Egret that will miss you. We strive to make every guest experience great and so glad to hear that we accomplished this. We truly look forward to your return visit.
Great vacation in a wonderful home !!
Our family stayed in the house in August 2018. We had a great vacation in the property. The house was exactly what we were looking for. It is located in a safe quite area with all things needed (Restaurants, Stores, Malls etc.) just a short drive away. The next beach is located just about 25mins. away. The house itself is very clean and has everything needed (even chairs and coolers for the beach). The kids loved the pool and we especially the barbecues in the evening. Another big plus is the friendliness and care taking attitude of Sharie the home owner.
We definitely can recommend this home to anybody else and looking forward to hopefully spend another vacation there.
It was a pleasure having you stay at our home. We try very hard to make everyone's trip the best it can be. It was great to hear that you were able to see so much of the area while you were here. We look forward to having your family stay again the next time you are in the area.

beautiful holiday in a great house
Insgesamt können wir uns uneingeschränkt den vorherigen sehr guten Kritiken nur anschließen. In Englisch ist alles ja schon gesagt, daher mal in Deutsch:
Das Haus liegt in einer sehr ruhigen Gegend direkt an einem Kanal. Mit dem Auto kann man in 5 Minuten Entfernung alle Einkäufe tätigen. auch das Port Charlotte Town Center/Mall ist direkt "um die Ecke". Insgesamt ist die Lage für Ausflüge auch sehr gut, die US 41 liegt nahe bei und auch zur IS 75 ist es nicht weit. Wir sind vom Flughafen Fort Myers ca. 1 Stunde gefahren. Durch die gute Anbindung ist es leicht die Umgebung wie Punta Gorda oder Fort Myers zu erkunden. Von Fort Myers aus ist auch der Key West Express sehr zu empfehlen. Naples oder Tampa (Busch Gardens) sind in ca. 1,5h erreichbar. Miami und auch die Everglades sind in einem Tagesausflug machbar. Diverse Strände liegen in ca. 30 Autominuten Entfernung. Reines Strandleben - mit Bars, Liegen, Duschen u Toiletten - gibt es jedoch in Florida bekanntermaßen eher nicht, aber natürlich tollen Sand und evtl. Piers.
Wir waren Mitte Juli in Port Charlotte und es war fast zu heiß.... genial war daher der Pool, den wir auch rege genutzt haben.
Das Haus ist wirklich schön. Es ist nett eingerichtet und hat tatsächlich rundum Ausstattung (sowohl in der Küche als auch in allen anderen Zimmern incl. Poolbereich und jede Menge Utensilien für den Strand). Alles war sauber und funktionierte einwandfrei, Gott sei Dank auch die Klimaanlage! Interessant war auch das Kanaldeck zur Beobachtung von Tieren (Fischen, Schildkröten und oberhalb von diversen Vögeln). Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt, tatsächlich ein "homeaway". Die Buchung, Abwicklung und Betreuung war außergewöhnlich gut. Vielen Dank an Sharie!
The House was very clean and we enjoyed the beautiful pool. Very quiet and friendly neighborhood.
I would highly recommend this house. The owners very attentive before, during and after our stay. Very comfortable and clean living space.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope you will choose "Idle Days" again the next time you are in the Port Charlotte area.
Me and my husband, we stayed at this property for almost a month,
House was spotless upon our arrival, and the furnishings (towels, kitchen ware, furniture, beach chairs, umbrellas) are all that one needs or even wants, kitchen supplied with everything that we needed and beyond.
lots of outside seating, table, gas grill, etc.
There's lots of space for storing a boat or letting the kids run around, too.
The owners Ron & Sharie helped us feel right at home!
They were in touch during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed (which we did). We called couple times, cuz couldn’t figure out (lol) how to turn on TV and lights in the pool, (they answered the phone right away and give us instructions - step by step)
We enjoyed cozy seating area near the canal, with glass of wine and fishing pole :) fancy!
Enjoyed feeding All the birds that had visited us.
So I can't overstate how happy we were with this property and owners.
Thank you so much!!!

It pleases us to know that you enjoyed our attention detail, from stocking the kitchen with the right appliances and accessories, to providing all the amenities that a family would want for a great vacation.It helps us to know that we are on the right track to making this a great vacation spot for all those who visit.
