Punta Gorda Isles house description

NOT AVAILABLE JAN, FEB, MAR 2015:
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, 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 double dock for your boat. The owners boat is on the lift. 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.

                      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.
