About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Picture yourself relaxing by the pool, enjoying watching the sunset over the water, while spending a quiet vacation in an established, residential, boating neighborhood, right here in South West Florida. Port Charlotte is a well kept secret. We are located close to all the amenities of busy, conjested seaside towns and cities ( Englewood, Venice, Sarasota and Ft Myers) but here we have easy access to essential shopping while enjoying a small town feeling.

This 3 bedroom home will delight young and old, a perfect meeting place for the family vacation. The one story house is perfect for grand parents . Stretch out and relax in your master bedroom, where a massive king sized bed ensures a great night’s sleep. Retire early to watch your favorite TV show or movie. Your glass door to the pool slides opens for that late night swim. A large 'walk in' closet and even more impressive bathroom completes the master suite. The spacious bathroom includes a double sink , walk in shower, bath tub and toilet with a pocket door.

And this is just one side of the home. Located on the opposite of the kitchen, living room and office are the next two bedrooms. Bedroom 2 has a queen size bed and TV, and also has a sliding glass door to the pool and lanai area. The third bedroom has two twin beds and a TV, and is a good choice either for children or teens. These rooms share a full bathroom.

The living area is spacious and includes an indoor and outdoor dining area. The comfortable couches invite relaxing with a good book or watching TV , while, for those lovely warm winter days, the sliding glass doors open to bring the 'outside inside'. The heated pool is a step away. It even has its own out door hot and cold shower. Ample seating is found both around the pool and patio, as well as in the comfy living room. The Office, which also has a TV, includes a desk for that computer and also a sofa which has a pull out double bed for those unexpected extra guests. This room has a sliding pocket door for some quiet privacy! High-speed Internet is available wirelessly, just bring your laptop and never miss an email.

A bright and happy family kitchen comes completely equipped for the experienced chef to cook large meals. Enjoy the convenience of a dishwasher and microwave, stove and refrigerator and the crucial feature required by parents everywhere - the coffee machine. The small bar gives the cook a view of the living area and keeps them in touch with the rest of the group. The dining area has chairs for 6 with plenty of extra dining space on the well furnished lanai or when you prefer to 'eat outside', perhaps after a BBQ on the grill.

Our area here, on Charlotte Harbor, is prime for pleasure boating, sailing, fishing, and kayaking. Located on a salt water canal with motorboat access to the Harbor and Gulf ( 20 minute ride and under one bridge to the Alligator Bay.) Sizable fish may even be caught right off our dock. Bring your own boat or rent one locally for the duration of your stay. Even dolphin can be spotted in the canal and in the lake behind our house. For the golfer, you are in a perfect location to access many, many golf courses. Port Charlotte even has its own sandy Beach Park with boat ramp, kayak and sail boat rental, and recreation facilities. For the fitness enthusiast, after morning laps in the pool, this quite, well kept neighbourhood provides miles of flat walking, jogging and biking .

Come stay with us and hang out together with family or friends and make the best use of Florida’s top feature - its sunshine and its waters in the comfort and luxury of this beautiful home!

Best stay ever

  • 5 of 5

Barbra is the absolute best person to work with on any rental. She had my wife in a wonderful location and a beautiful home. She also checks with you to see if things are ok.

I will work with Barbra as long as she is in the business.

Great place

I hate to give 5 stars because I would like to keep this gem for myself. The location, layout, amenities and the manager Barb were all 5star. Place was clean, everything you could want is on hand. Barb was fun and great to work with. Hope to do it again.

Not only can you fish from your dock, but you have easy access to Charlotte Harbor and to the Gulf. Chgarlotte Harbor is known for its variety of fish and its fishing tournaments. The shalllow waters and presence of mangrove that line the harborr attract sport and game fish. Catch your own supper!


You are very close to the wonderful local 'sugar sand' beaches of the Gulf coast, all within an 10-20min drive from our home. They are some of the best shelling and shark tooth collecting spots along the South Gulf Coast, all very clean and safe swimming waters. Try the fantastic beaches of Manasota, Englewood, Don Pedro Island, Stump Pass beach, unspoilt Gasparilla Island & Boca Grande, plus other exclusive islands such as Captiva and Sanibel Islands - some only

accessible by boat.


Choose from over 20 courses that are within 20 miles of our home - some just literally 2 miles away. 3 of these are Championship standard. There is also a 24 hour, floodlit course just 6 miles away. All courses will hire out all the equipment you may need if you've not taken your own.

Other local activities include diving, jet skiing, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, wind-surfing, water skiing, boat hire, shopping, numerous fantastic restaurants catering for all tastes - especially fish! The area is a haven for fishing, both deep sea and coastal with many places offering equipment, boat rental and fishing trips. Try deep-sea fishing for Marlin off Boca Grande island, which is where the world Tarpon championships are held.

Charlotte Harbour is one of 'Sail' magazines '10 Greatest Places to Sail' and first class boating is available throughout the area. You can also explore waterways by canoe and cycle the many nature trails. Why not take the opportunity to charter a sailing boat with a skipper?

Besides being part of the 'real' Florida, our location is an ideal base for day trips to many local attractions if you want to explore. The 'Everglades' are just 2 hours drive to the south. Tampa Bay with 'Busch Gardens' is 90 minutes drive to the north - with one of the best theme parks for families. If you fancy the 'Orlando' experience, then Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World in Central Florida are only a 2.5 hour drive away.
