About Cabana Joe

Being a world traveler and a adventurer myself I’ve decided to design and build the ultimate vacation rental for you! . I started out with a dream and 3 acres of land. Every year it continues to grow as we build and add to it. I’ve designed it towards a Florida keys style resort. With so much around us here we are tucked in a perfect spot 1 mile from downtown Punta Gorda. Every body tells me they never knew this place exsisted and it’s amazing. I figured the more to do and enjoy here for my guest ,the better. I can pretty much garrantee you won’t be disappointed and will come back every year.

Why Cabana Joe chose Punta Gorda

This property is very unique with koi ponds and bridges. The plants and wild life are all around and there is so much to do. We have hidden paths and secluded hammock areas. A amazing heated cave pool where you can sit and swim under the waterfalls while drinking frozen margaritas . I designed and built the place just for the ultimate vacation rental. If I thought it,I built it! We are constantly adding on every year with big new ideas.

What makes this bungalow unique

Movie night in the cave pool seats 8 in the hot tub and 6 behind the waterfalls while we stream Netflix with a amazing surround sound system. We have a full margarita bar with frozen and on the rocks flavored margaritas. Certain months we have local bands play on our back stage for live music and food. We love our guest to interact with other guest going kayaking,paddle boating,biking ,Cornhole or volleyball. The great thing is you have your own outside private area if you prefer to keep to yourselves and do you own thing. I’ve been to so many rentals myself in different areas and it was always a frustrating challenge finding out what’s around and what there is to do. Now you can talk to other guest and myself and plan things. I’ve been in this area for over 20yrs and can inform you of all the great and fun places to go.

We have never stayed anyplace like this! And we LOVED it!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very unique place and we loved everything about it. Cabana Joe's is an amazing place. Joe is a super hard-working, friendly owner and his hard work shows. From the themed cabins to the amazing outdoor space to the margarita bar ( free every night!) there is something for everybody. We were only there 3 nights, but it was hard to leave. Next time we will stay longer.

If you are looking for someplace fancy, this might not be for you, but if you want a fun,comfortable, clean place, give Cabana Joe's a try. It was just my husband and I travelling this time, but it would be great for a family, or for a few families travelling together.

Our first night there, I ,unfortunately broke my leg and arm. The room we were in wasn't wheelchair accessible.Joe was very accommodating and tried 2 rooms before we found one that worked for me. I really appreciated that.

Joe talks about expanding and improving and I have no doubt that he will.

Another fun thing is that is it very close to the Fat Point Brewery ( we got there by wheelchair!).. We went over for a few beers and dinner and made it back for margarita time. So fun!

Can't wait to go back !!

Hidden surprise!!

  • 3 of 5

Flew into Punta Gorda Airport and stayed 10 days at Fort Myers Beach. When looking online for a place in Punta Gorda for 4 days to be near the airport for departure, I came across Cabana Joes. Read reviews, looked at pictures and the price, I thought what a cool little place to stay 4 days for the final leg of our vacation. We were not disappointed. Joe and brother Dan were very personable and made our stay great!!! This place may not be for everyone but we thought it was wonderful! I will admit when we pulled up I was a little confused because I wondered where everything was. Well when Joe showed us out back where everything is fenced in, it was a little piece of paradise. Nice sand volleyball court, sand horseshoe pits, sand corn hole area, several hammock areas, screened in little building if you want to eat in it, a Gorgeous screened in pool complete with 3 waterfalls and cave with hot tub. We also had our own private area right outside the back door with picnic table and grill. Our cabana was The Six Shooter decorated in a western theme. It was cute and clean. Joe and Dan are hard workers who are doing their best to make the American Dream work for them!!! I have a lot of respect for that as this is privately owned and operated property. It you expect a 5 star resort this isn't for you. If you want something neat, quirky, different and peaceful then this is for you! Thank You Joe and Dan for making our last little bit of our vacation special.

Extremely Good Value

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful property with great amenities. We stayed in the Six Shooter cabin and were pleasantly surprised by the decor. We rode bikes into Punta Gorda and had the perfect day to leisurely explore the area. We enjoyed the hot tubs and pool, spending time outdoors in our private garden, plus the nightly margaritas were a great way to end the day. We can’t wait to return and see what Joe has done next with this property. Definitely Punta Gorda’s best kept secret!
