Cozy getaway for two
About Kathryn Baker
Bill and Kathy are the owners of Sunnybreeze Golf Course since 1977 and worked since 1974 for previous owners. They raised four children and now have their home and golf course for sale, with the intention of retiring to visit their many grandchildren. They also own a course and summer home in Michigan, but plan to continue wintering in Sunnybreeze because they cannot imagine themselves anywhere else!
Why Kathryn Baker chose Fort Ogden
Built in 1991 by Leon Baker, father to Bill, this guest house accommodated his parents until they built their home next door. We bought both homes as part of our retirement package.
What makes this Studio unique
The guest house backs up to Thornton Creek and has to be one of the few places in Florida with a walk out basement! The deck is one of the best features and has been a great family gathering spot for parties and celebrations.

By far our best!
The guest house is a perfect retreat for one or two. Very comfortable, plenty of room to store your belongings and Kathy has stocked the house with everything you could possibly need. The indoor outdoor spaces were delightful. We rented long term since we were on a mission to purchase property. Their location was perfectly situated for us to easily explore all of southwest Florida. In addition there is everything you need right within 5-20 minutes of the house. At the end of the day this rental exceeded our expectations, and would highly recommend to anyone seeking a private retreat. Bonus: we hope we made some new friends!
The guest house was roomy for two people, very clean, well stocked. Enjoyed the peaceful neighborhood. Was even able to birdwatch a bit and saw new bird😊
We greatly enjoyed our stay. Kathy was very hospitable and responsive. This is a great secluded little guest house, very clean! It really has everything you need for a stay. Kathy has stocked it with just about everything you would have in your own home.
The washer dryer in the basement came in very handy. We did not have children with us but there is a small baby gate for the basement stairs if needed. The TV comes with google chromecast so we were able to watch our netflix via our phones, however she also provides youtube TV and you get some local channels. I would mention the water is well water, which is clean but as with all wells, has an ever so slight smell of sulfur. This was not an issue for us as we grew up on wells but someone unfamiliar may question it.
You are a 20min drive from Punta Gorda which for us was wonderful as we like to exercise every morning and they have an extensive walking/biking trail. It is about a 35 min drive (only due to traffic) to Charlotte Sports Park to catch a spring training game like we did. We were lucky to catch the farmers market in Punta Gorda (Sat mornings) before we left.
This was our first ever VRBO trip and it couldn't have been better! We definitely suggest this relaxing retreat!
Thank you for staying with us! We are actually in the process of remodeling, which includes our well. You were the ideal guests!
Kathy made us very welcome and helped with directions and ideas for things to do. Would go back again,
