Very nice! As good in person as it looked on the website. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Right in the historic district. Can walk to everything. Unless you are planning on a distant day trip, you will not need to get a car. Save the money and go to the many close by restaurants. Our favorites were: Celtic Ray, Blue Turtle and Burg R Bar.

Our Hosts, Mike and Kathi, met us in person, and gave us a lot of local interest items and recommendations. One of the best VRBO experiences we have had.

Such a beautiful unit, fully upgraded. Cozy and clean. All the amenities you could need, in case you ran out of anything, it was there. BIG screen TV with hundreds of channels in case you want to binge watch something on a rainy day. The firepit surrounded by palms is very cozy. We took advantage of renting e-bikes and toured the city. Beautiful city it is. Shopping is great.

fishermans village is easy to walk to and has great restaurants/bars, right on the water.

This property is centrally located for walking. Lovely homes and streets surround.

The bed is so comfortable, shower is great. we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish we had more time. Will definately be putting this back on our future TO DO list. Didn't have enough time there. Punta Gorda is a beautiful place.

we came home thoroughly relaxed.

We have lots of plans for this little cottage in the future with more flowers and gardens so do hope you will return one day! We do take great pride in keeping it as clean as can be! And try to keep the kitchen stocked should someone want to cook. Please tell your friends and do come back again! Best to you Kath and Mike

Miss you, Punta Gorda!

Kathi and Mike are the best! My Mom and I spent almost two weeks enjoying "Chamber of Commerce weather". The duplex fit our needs perfectly...close to Fisherman's Village, close to downtown, close to the grocery store - AND in a beautiful area of the Historic District. If we needed something, the duplex had it. Perfect! Will absolutely, positively stay here again!!! (and, yes, Kathi...keep your eye out for that perfect house for me ;))...

Darling cottage - great location

  • 4 of 5

We would highly recommend this cottage for a couple wanting a weekend away. The cottage is darling with great location. We took walks around the neighborhood and down to the park on the river; many great restaurants nearby. Punta Gorda is an awesome little town that provided the Florida sun and warmth without the crowding and traffic congestion you find farther south. Kathi and MIke really show great care for the property and were very helpful when we had questions. Hope to stay there again!

Loved this cute cottage. Very comfortable and well maintained. The location was perfect to walk to restaurants and Fishermen’s Wharf and the harbor walk was just down the street. We would highly recommend. Thanks Mike and Kathy for your hospitality!!!
