Property description

The 'Salty Dolphin' is a spectacular canal home with over 2,000 square feet of clean, uncluttered, living space with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. With all new furniture, housewares, electronics and art work added in November, 2008 and updated in 2014, this home offers a contemporary, Caribbean flare with many special touches. The lanai has an extra large heated pool with a cage and baby barrier fence, a cushy seating area with a bar, grill and lounge chairs. There is a new double dock for your boat and a brand new seawall. Boat lift available. The quiet neighborhood is great for walking, running and biking and is only minutes to Fisherman's Wharf & the downtown area. We welcome families and couples for week long vacations as well as retirees coming to enjoy a long term rental in the sun. We have a master bedroom overlooking the pool, a queen guest room and a third guest room suitable for children or another couple. We are child/baby-friendly. The pool offers a new Baby Barrier safety fence to ensure safety.

Airports/Area
AIRPORTS: PGI (Allegiant) is 10 minutes; 40 minutes to RSW in Fort Myers; 1 hour to SRQ in Sarasota; or 1 hour and 45 minutes to TPA in Tampa.

GREAT LOCATION: Punta Gorda is one of Florida's last great gems. It's a boaters paridise with great cruising/sailing and fishing right from your back door. The atmosphere is casual and low key and the people here are friendly and helpful. There is a beautiful historic downtown with shops and restaurants. The town is off the beaten highway path, yet close and easy access to everything you need. Beautiful beaches, unlimited shopping, children's attractions, movies/theater and cultural activities are all readily available within short drive.

Shopping/Boating/Restaurants
SHOPPING: Less than 5 minutes to Fisherman's Village and lots of charming local shops in town or several major shopping malls about a half hour drive. Several Grocery Stores, Drug Stores, Banks, Super Wal-Mart and Home Depot within 2-5 miles.

BOATING: Bring your power boat or rent one at Holidaze. The double wide boat dock with lift is just steps from the pool and its only a short cruise to Charlotte Harbor.

RESTAURANTS: Fisherman's village and lots of great restaurants downtown all within 5 minutes. Jack''s and Lashey Marina are two of our favorites.

Lots of Extras
Meticulous owners have included lots of extras. All high end linens are provided including beach towels, beach chairs and coolers. The owners have added many special touches to ensure your vacation is perfect and carefree. Ask about child/baby gear that comes with the rental. We welcome couples who are looking for a romantic get away, snow birds seeking long term rentals and young familes who are visiting family in the area. We are family friendly to those with young children and offer a high chair, packnplay crib, kiddie pool, umbrella stroller. If you are renters who return to the area a couple of times a year, ask us about storing personal items for your return visit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Meticulous home owners who love the small town feel of Punta Gorda. Avid boaters and lovers of the great outdoors we enjoy exploring the gulf coast islands.

Why the Owner Chose Punta Gorda Isles:
Home is maintained with much TLC. It has all the little extra touches you won't find in most rentals. The master bedroom, living room and kitchen all open to the pool with an open, airy feel. It's extremely clean, uncluttered and well furnished. Very convenient location yet in a quiet neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
PGI is a friendly, laid back boating community. Our pool is an oversized pool, not one of those little tiny 'bathtub' pools. Great for swimming laps, floating in the sun with a cocktail or playing with the children. Comfortable, one floor living with easy flowing floor plan open to the lanai.
