About Kim or Skip Negley

We love the relaxed atmosphere of El Jobean, When we aren't teaching or remodeling, we love to sail. We never tire of the beauty of the area.

Kim or Skip Negley purchased this mobile home in 2011

Why Kim or Skip Negley chose Port Charlotte

We were looking for a home for our sailboat, where we could walk out of our house and get on our boat. We fell in love with one of the last pieces of ' OLD FLORIDA' Yet we are close driving distance to entertainment, cultural events, fine dining, and nature.

What makes this mobile home unique

Grab a cup of coffee in the morning and sit by the water to watch the sun come up over the wildlife and bird sanctuary. Grab a pole and fish the day away or get in the car and explore florida, something to see in all directions.

Serenity on Sail Boat Canal

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this Cottage in the past and it was very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. The area is very peaceful and quiet, wildlife abundant. I contacted the owner to see if they had another unit that was smaller then this one and they did, one street over. It was very quaint, on a sailboat canal and just as peaceful and tranquil as the bigger cottage. Wood Duck offers all the comforts of home, fully equipped kitchen, all your towels and linens, I didn't want to leave. This 1 bedroom is very spacious, tastefully decorated and quiet relaxing. I just loved mornings and drinking my coffee on the dock and watching the fish jump and the egrets walking around. The area is lovely, the people friendly and such a homey feel, it just didn't get any better than that. I felt like I was home here, it is that comfortable. These accommodations are top notch and when it came to laying your head down at night you got a peaceful nights sleep I am so looking forward to my next visit. I highly recommend this 1 bedroom and I highly recommend the 2 bedroom if larger space is needed. You will not regret your stay here. This place is awesome.

A Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

A quiet peaceful setting. Imagine waking up in the morning and drinking your coffee outside and watching the wildlife and the fish jumping in the canal as you start your day, it doesn't get any better than this. This cottage offers all the comforts of home. Tastefully decorated, very comfortable, very clean, quiet neighborhood and close to shopping and dining. For those who want to cook at home this home offers everything you need. The owners are very helpful in answering any questions you may have. If your in the mood for good Italian food go to Visani's and also take in the comedy if they have comedians that night, you won't be disappointed. I would highly reccommend this place to my family and friends and will definately rent this cottage again.
