Solitude House, Punta Gorda
What a delightful stay we have had at your Solitude House. So relaxing and peaceful. The lanai is beautiful and your decorative touches astound us. Deb made it so appealing. This stay has been for us, a renewal of Mind, Body and Spirit. With our best Wishes, Evelyn and Angus Ontario

We stayed at Solitude House in July/August 2013. We were absolutely delighted with the quality and cleanliness of the property and would recommend it to anyone looking to explore Punta Gorda and the south west coast. With excellent access to the I-75 we were able to visit Tampa, Naples, Fort Myers, Sarasota and St Petersburg in good time. Punta Gorda Isles is a peaceful and friendly neighbourhood and we enjoyed many an evening watching the beautiful sunsets from the patio. The house is extremely well equipped and very spacious inside. The helpful and approachable owners ensured our stay ran smoothly and we would love to stay here again during future visits to Punta Gorda.

We stayed at Solitude house All of March and Part of April 2011. We had a truly delightful experience. Our family joined us at various times and we found the house beautifully laid out for guests. The house is so comfortable and very well appointed. We lacked for nothing. The owners gave us restaurant tips and information on the area. They were a joy to work with. We loved the area, finding it less congested and easier to get around in than some of the larger cities. We did everything: beaches, museums, many area attractions, shopping, etc. I have stayed in several rental homes over the years, and consider this one of the best.

A Wonderful PGI home!
A Wonderful PGI home!
We stayed here for 5 weeks and enjoyed the clean, beautifully decorated home. The fishing on the saltwater canal was enjoyable. We loved the area -great restaurants ( Lulu at the Wyvern hotel, Laishley Crab House, Riveria Oyster , Table 209, Joe Crackers in the immediate area and Turtles in Siesta Key and Campiello in Naples) bike and walking routes, Gallery Walk, and shopping ( Estero outlets, Naples 5th and 3rd avenues, Port Charlotte Mall) Bob and Deb were most helpful in answering our questions. There are lots of activities to do - air show, Third Thursday events, Charlotte Stone Crabs/Tampa Bay Rays baseball, Lemon Bay Playhouse (Englewood), Boca Grande beaches, art gallery events/classes, boating (from their backyard) and just relaxing by the pool. We would consider visiting this home again.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: After sailing the waters between Ft Lauderdale, Florida and Venezuela for 10 years and owning a home and home interior business in St. Croix, U S Virgin Islands, we decided it was time to relocate back to the “states.” Upon the advice of a fellow boating enthusiast, we traveled to Punta Gorda, Florida and fell in love with the small town charm, close proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, and the fact that we could still “live on the water.” Solitude House was purchased in 2003 as our permanent residence, only to have life events intervene and take us to South Carolina for the time being. So, with our usual enthusiasm to make “lemonade out of lemons,” we made Solitude House not only our vacation home away from home, but also for our guests. We have furnished our home in the traditional West Indian/Key West laid back motif, featuring tropical inspired paintings, furniture and fabrics that reflect our comfortable but casual lifestyle. We hope you enjoy Solitude House as much as we do!
