About Susan Hartman @ Hartman Property Management, Inc
We hope to retire to this home in 3 years. In the meantime, we share this lovely home with retirees looking to escape frigid northern winters, or it is perfect home for a 'summer get away' as opposed to the cramped quarters of a hotel. We are close to Fort Myers which is south - a little further drive north to Sarasota, St. Pete and Tampa. Rather than charge a hefty refundable damage deposit, we have opted for the insurance through VRBO.com. It is an excellent arrangement that protects EVERYONE.
Susan Hartman @ Hartman Property Management, Inc purchased this House in 2007
Why Susan Hartman @ Hartman Property Management, Inc chose Punta Gorda
We have intentionally listed our home for less than comparable homes in the area - we simply want to be able to maintain the home, i.e., pay the mortgage etc., until we are able to retire. Also, it is preferable to have a home occupied as opposed to vacant. Unfortunately, the State of Florida has to get their "cut" and there is a 12% tax that is mandatory, and paid to the State.
What makes this House unique
Punta Gorda has the distinction of being the #1 City in America for retirees. It is a great boating community and has many quiet streets and bicycling paths. AIRPORTS: Punta Gorda Airport (10 mins away), Fort Myers Airport (45 mins away), Tampa International Airport (1 hr 45 mins away). LEISURE ACTIVITIES: Bird Watching, Boating, Bicycling Fishing, Shelling, Shopping, Sight Seeing, Walking, Wildlife Watching. Close to Ponce De Leon Park and Fisherman's Village

Beautiful property in great location
We were in PG for the purpose of house hunting and we are happy to have stayed at this property for comparison. Lanai was beautiful and pool was clean and lovely. Rooms were large and home was well stocked with basic essentials. I'm removing one star for a couple of small things that may not bother anyone else. The bed in the master bedroom was so tall I literally had to jump into it (I'm 5' 6"). Having a small stool in the bedroom would have helped. Also, the dishwasher isn't really washing anymore and should probably be replaced. We had to do quite a bit of hand washing. But I would stay here again and would recommended to anyone else.
My husband and are both almost 6 feet tall, so the bed is basically for us. This is the FIRST I have EVER heard about the problem with dishwasher! I wd have gladly sent out repairman or had it replaced if I’d known - i can’t address what I’m not aware of! Looking into problem now!
home away from home
wonderful stay - great location - beautiful home - we will definitely look to stay here again
What a beautiful place.............
Very clean & homey - caught tons of fish - saw baby birds, dolphins, very peaceful neighborhood - was able to open all doors & catch the full breeze of the area - would highly recommend this beautiful place - the convenience of being home
It was a pleasure hosting you in our home and pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I am also sooooo glad you got the opportunity to see dolphins, that is an awesome experience. Just this past, last weekend of April, I noted in the back, right under the guest bedroom window in the garden, a momma field bunny burrowing a nice home for babies - can't wait for them to be born. Hope you come back when you are able.
Relaxing and comfortable.
This is our second time staying at this home and we enjoyed it just as much as the last time. We had 3 wonderful months of sunshine and watching the many boats going through the canal, along with the dolphins and fish as we enjoyed the pool. The house was well stocked with everything we needed from kitchen items to linens. Great area close to shops, restaurants, walking and biking trails, always something going on in downtown Punta Gorda.
Want to thank Susan and David for always being readily available to answer any question or concerns we had, we would definitely stay here again.
Bob and Julie B. stayed 1/16/18 to 4/17/18
Julie and Bob: So glad you enjoyed your stay again. Especially glad you got to see some dolphins, you are the second guest this year to have seen them in the canal. I was just there the last weekend of April and saw a momma field rabbit digging a burrow for babies in the garden right outside the guest bedroom window facing the canal. Can't wait for the babies - there is so much nature in this house, since we are one block away from the estuary. Hope you come stay with us again!
We just spent a week at this rental. Great neighborhood, amazing spot.
Priceless view from the pool on the boat canal.The house is quiet, cleaned , well geared up. Susan was easy to reach and great with communication. The owners have a great attention to details ( from nice comfortable bed with soft sheets, dark curtains in bedrooms to be able to sleep in, to the Keurig machine and the list goes on). The price was very reasonable and we were able to have our old sweet dog with us. It was perfect.
We truly enjoyed our stay. We would love to come back.
We found wonderful beaches in Boca Grance and Gasparilla island , a drive away but totally worth it for the day! Highly recommended!!
Thank you / I am always pleased when my guests enjoy their time at one of my houses! So happy to be able to accommodate people's needs to relax and just get away for a while.
Perfect home on the canal in Punta Gorda.
With the pool & the canal stretching across the entire back of the house the view was absolutely beautiful. We fished in the canal & swam everyday. I walked my dog around the neighborhood & everyone was nice. The house was super clean and well stocked. It was like hanging out at a friend's house. Had a minor problem with the dryer and the owner had it fixed immediately. I highly recommend this property.
It is always a pleasure to be able to share this "gem" of a home with people who just want to get away for a week, a month, or months at a time. Thank you for choosing to spend your time at our home!
