About Kathi and Mike Melcher

My husband Mike and I live close by! I am a local REALTOR in the area so enjoy introducing new people to Punta Gorda. CALL me or email for information about the area! We loved to Vacation in Florida before we moved here. After visiting Punta Gorda many times we made the move, relocating from New Hampshire. We miss the mountains, but NOT the cold and the snow. We now carry a couple of beach chairs in the trunk instead of a snow shovel, sand and an ice scraper! Life is good in the tropics.

Kathi and Mike Melcher purchased this Bungalow in 2012

Why Kathi and Mike Melcher chose Punta Gorda

This little house is in a wonderful location, the historic area of Punta Gorda. Walk or ride a bike to the park, restaurants, the new Vietnam Memorial Wall. Fish from the Pickle Ball or Tennis, shoot some hoops at Gilchrist Park, only a block and a half away. Go for sunset! Walk to Farmer's Market on Sat. and Sunday Morning. So close to everything.

What makes this Bungalow unique

Plenty of outside space, neighborhood setting. So much to see and do without a car. Walk or Bike! Also check out Allegiant air which flies into Punta Gorda, wonderful small airport. Or RSW in Ft Myers is about 40 minutes south. You can be at many beautiful beaches in 45 minutes. Punta Gorda rated as a top place to retire.
