Deep Creek house description
Located on a broad saltwater canal in picturesque Charlotte County in Southwest Florida, the home is located at the point where the Peace River flows into Charlotte Harbor forming one of the most pristine estuaries in the state. This unique confluence holds an amazing degree of vitality and biodiversity. You'll be able to watch schools of mullet, tarpon, snook, other game fish, and even Manatees as they ply the waterways. And imagine your delight as you spy the enormous variety of crabs and other shellfish scurrying over the flats during low tide. You'll see stingrays silently patrol the bottom as the tide gently rolls back in a constant rhythm of life.
Port Charlotte is indeed a boater's paradise. You can travel up the Peace River on a pontoon or deck boat for a relaxing view of the mangrove and palm tree forests while enjoying the spectacle of Great Blue and White Herons, Glossy Ibis and even an occasional Bald Eagle.
Connects to Charlotte Harbor : We invite you to check out the Peace River Audubon Society for detailed lists of the birds known to frequent the region. With direct access to Charlotte Harbor, the Boca Grande Pass, world renowned for its sport fishing, the Intercoastal Waterway and the Gulf Mexico are only 55 short minutes away by water.
You'll have everything you need to thoroughly experience a coastal vacation. There is a 115' seawall that spans the entire backyard. A new 10' x 20' dock provides a great platform for fishing or getting that perfect tan. And bring your boat as we have provided a powerful boat lift that can handle vessels up to 28' long and 10,000 lbs. If you don't have your own, a boat can easily be rented on a daily or weekly basis at nearby Punta Gorda.
Old Florida Lifestyle: We have carefully preserved the original charm of the house while completely remodeling it to include a host of modern conveniences. Designer porcelain tile creates a floor which is cool to the touch. It is fully furnished with brandnew rattan island themed casual furniture with extra comfy cushions. It boasts an updated kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator with water and ice dispenser, dishwasher, electric range and microwave. There are dozens of gourmet cooking utensils on hand in the large kitchen. But DON'T bring your toaster or coffeemaker as both of these, along with a Wolfgang Puck Gourmet Food Processor, are provided for your convenience. There is plenty of storage available in the abundant Shaker-style cabinets where you'll find a full set of china, flatware, glasses, and even wine glasses. We even provide a complimentary bottle of wine to get your vacation off to a running start.
Dining can be as casua
Gourmet Cooking Conveniences: For the ultimate in casual dining, cook up some nice steaks - or your catch of the day - on the stainless steel infrared gas grill and sit down to eat at the large outdoor dining table on the spacious concrete patio. But make sure you grill enough as the patio set seats eight!
Relax and enjoy a good book while reclining on the loveseat or sofa in the Sun Room. No need to fight over these though, as three extra cushy swivel rocking chairs are stationed there as well. This room is air conditioned but is surrounded on two sides by sliding windows providing a magnificent view of the canal. Views of the sunset from here are to die for. And you can top off an evening by turning on the rope ceiling lighting for creating just the right mood for a romantic evening.
We think you will be impressed with the technical infrastructure as well. Three high resolution (1080p) HDTVs are provided. The house is wired with fast (1GB) ethernet as well as an 802.11g wireless (Wi-Fi) .

Where did the two weeks go?
Where did the two weeks go?
A really great 2 weeks. Thanks for the use of your home. I have been home another 2 weeks and I'm still sad to be away. The property is in top condition and spotlessly clean. There is EVERYTHING you could possibly need to help you with your stay, even a few spare batteries! The location is an excellent balance of quiet and close to most ameneties. The neighbours make you feel like you're part of the community rather than a vacationer as well. The fishing outside the house made it difficult to motivate oneself to explore the local area, but please do it's worth the effort! There a real variety of wildlife available without leaving the garden, including regular swim pasts from the Manatee population. Finally a big thankyou to the owners, Mark and Anette. They answered my consistent questions before booking and before arriving quickly, politely and always positively. Previous experience with property owners has been uninspiring at best! These guys made the whole process a breeze. Next time I'm in the area this is where I hope to stay!!

Owner response: Mike, Thank you so much for your kind words. We are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself and that the fishing was good! We also appreciate your generous "donation" of fishing gear for the next guests! We really appreciate your staying with us and look forward to seeing you again. Who knows, maybe next time you will be able to hook that tarpon! Warm regards, Mark and Annette

Absolutely marvelous place in a wonderful setting
Mark and Annette are a wonderful support team. We liked Peace River Seafood and Harborview Seafood on 41. We also liked Sharks and ate there as well. We'd recommend the airboat swamp tour in Immokalee, the harbor tour in Punta Gorda, the harbor tour in Sarasota... We caught over 70 crabs off the dock and once two horshoe crabs! Old with barnacles. I've never seen them alive and they date back to prehistoric times and their shells are usually found on beaches. We placed them back in the water very carefully. Another "first" was seeing two manatees down in the Everglades. There is a local gator who appears every now and then in our canal. He (or she) is about 10-12 feet long - we named him "Sam". A small bunny - dark gray - lives nearby and likes the front yeard a lot. And there is also a resident Bobcat which the neighbors have seen. The tides are fascinating - and we have a little blue heron who claims our seawall as his (or her) place to watch for fish. We enjoyed Laishley's Crab House restaurant and shopping in Fisherman's Village. And there are art sales everywhere! We walked in the parks along the ocena in Puta Gorda and Port Charlotte and wandered out on the fishing piers. People everywhere are friendly. Mark had wonderful recommendations for us ranging from restaurants to "Fishin' Franks". He's on target with all of them. All in all - this is a wonderful place to be. Our three months have flown. Thank you Mark and Annette for providing such a wonderful home.

Excellent Home Away From Home
Thank you so much for providing such an excellent "home away from home". We thoroughly enjoyed our five week stay. Besides the fact that you are obviously very thoughtful & make every effort to insure that your guests are comfortable, the setting & location of your vacation home are ideal. We are very happy that we were able to stay in your vacation rental home.

A beautiful, fully functional home away from home. Excellent location in a quiet small residential setting just off interstate. Beautiful setting wherein vacationers can lounge, dine or relax on lanai, which backs on to inland canal.

Owner response: Gary and Jacki, Thanks so much for your kind remarks. We enjoyed having you as guests. Perhaps next time you're here, you can see Manatees in addition to Bobcats! We look forward to seeing you again. -Mark and Annette
A wonderful holiday!
A wonderful holiday!
This is the perfect vacation rental. The listing description is very accurate. The house has been totally renovated with a beautiful gourmet kitchen, lovely tile floors throughout, new furnishings and was sparking clean. The outside space is lovely and the views from the dock are wonderful...especially the sunsets. The house is in a very peaceful area and conveniently located to many attractions. The Port Charlotte area has such a lot to offer. After a day of exploring it was so wonderful to come "home", sit on the lanai, watch the sunset and BBQ a great meal of fresh fish or shrimp. The owners are extremely kind and helpful and made our stay an absolute pleasure.
