About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom

This updated and modern house is set right on Punta Gorda's reputable canals, surrounded by tropical palms and lush foliage. With a private dock at the edge of the yard, rent a boat for the week and spend your week venturing into the Gulf to Caya Costa or Sanibel Island. If kayaking is more your style, explore the canals and the multitude of wildlife sitings just a bit downstream.

The most magnificent part about this house is the sun-soaked lanai overlooking the canal, but you'll be sure to enjoy the three bedroom, two bath house with updated rooms, wireless internet, cable and a smartTV set up with NETFLIX. A gated back yard allows for a perfect space for your pet to roam free. The house has two bikes in the garage for your use, games, a hula hoop, dvds, and all the beach amenities you might need.

Enjoy this little slice of tranquil paradise to return to after visiting Florida's most famous theme park attractions (two hours to Busch Gardens, Tampa and Walt Disney, Orlando). Relax on the lanai after a day trip to Naples, Boca Grande, Sanibel or Sarasota, all within 1 hour drive. World class white sand beaches are only 40 minutes in any direction.

Come enjoy the tranquility of Punta Gorda, take a guided world-class sports fishing trip, dine out at the many gourmet restaurants, comb the beaches for sandollars and seashells, and soak up all the sunshine that southwest Florida has to provide.

*Note: we do not offer monthly rates for the high season

Wonderful Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for our Sibling Reunion Week in Punta Gorda. It was within driving range of some great bird photography spots and other family located along the Southwest Coast. The house felt like home as it was furnished for comfort and built for socializing with a large lanai as well as a TV room plus living room. We loved being able to have Stormy, the teacup poodle, come along. The owners are very accommodating and gracious as well as easy to communicate with. We also enjoyed the hassle-free, non-stop Plattsburgh, NY to Punta Gorda, FL Allegiant flight.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay close to Burnt Store Road in Punta Gorda where we are having a house built. This rental property was in the absolute perfect location. Close to Burnt Store Road and also close to Port Charlotte. The community was grand and had many canals and walking paths. It was very active with people walking, biking, boating. We loved the layout of the house. Master bedroom on one side, other bedrooms on the other. Two living room spaces. The house had everything we needed and then some. Our absolute favorite thing about the house was the lanai. Quite large and completely screened in. Even though there was no pool (and you don't really need one in January), we thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the lanai and watching the traffic on the canal (right in the back yard). The owners were very thoughtful in letting us get into the house early and were available for any questions or problems that arose. We would highly recommend this rental property.

This is our 2nd stay and we can't say enough good things! Spacious, comfortable, clean, quiet - looks exactly like the photos. Being from the Midwest we love the rich, warm colors and furniture with splashes of Florida. It is perfectly located in a very nice neighborhood. We loved our morning sunrises and evening cribbage games on the lanai, right on the water /canal. And so wonderful how pet friendly it is overall, and especially with a fenced area right off the lanai for our little dogs. Kathryn is so flexible and accomodating, and makes everything seemless.

we had a great time here. The house had everything we needed and if I had a question Kate was just a phone call away. This home is centrally located and would be a great fit for families, seniors, girls getaway or pet owners. We had a lot of fun and can't wait til we go back next year.

wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay although it was short. The home was very comfortable and had everything needed. The neighborhood is great and close to everything. The owner was available for all my questions and we are looking forward to returning next year. Also we have 2 small dogs who loved the fenced in yard!

Great home

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed Kathryn's house over the holidays for five days, visiting my parents who live nearby. It was perfect. Quiet and so comfortable. It is centrally located to everything. I had recently broken my leg and it was so easy to get around in the house, everything being so spacious. All the comforts of home - great beds, sofas, blankets, kitchen stocked, etc. We especially enjoyed reading on the patio in the afternoons, shaded but sunny facing the canal. Kathryn was very gracious and helpful before and after our visit. Definitely recommend.
