About the property

3br Waterfront, Pool Home

A little bit about the house, its three bedrooms with 2.5 baths located on the Spring Lake waterway. The property has a nice backyard with an in-ground swimming pool enclosed in a screened pool cage. It’s just a short boat ride out into Charlotte Harbor. Redfish, Snook, Cobia, Spotted Trout, Tarpon and Shark are just a few of the great game fish in the waterway and harbor. Before exiting into the harbor the waterway opens up into Spring Lake and then meanders through a mangrove lined channel. The sheltered waters are great for Kayaking. Alligators, Manatee, Osprey and Eagles are often seen along the waterway. Numerous guides are available for both inshore and fishing the reefs or trolling offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Party or head boats also provide closer-in reef fishing at a very reasonable cost. If you would like to bring your own boat, a public launch is just a short distance.

We are located 1.75 hours south of Tampa airport (TPA), 3 hours from Orlando or Miami, 30 minutes to Fort Myers and within 30 to 45 minutes of great beaches in Englewood (see picture) and Boca Grande. All the major department stores, groceries, restaurants, theaters as well as the local shops are within a short 15 minute drive.

The house is fully furnished. As I said the house has three bedrooms. The master has a king bed with a 21” TV with a full bath. The second bedroom has a full size bed with an attached half bath. The third bedroom has a queen bed with a full bath across the hall. The living room has a sofa/hide-a-bed. There is also a family room with sliding glass doors opening to the lanai and pool. The kitchen/dining room is fully equipped with dinnerware for eight and a built-in dishwasher. Microwave, coffee maker, crock pot, toaster, blender, etc. are there for your use. A lanai with an outdoor dining area and gas grill is in the back next to the pool. Beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers are for there for your use. The pool is solar heated and is from 3’ to 6’ deep. Basic cable and high speed internet is provided, There is also a library of close to 100 adult and children DVD’s. There is an ample supply of linens and towels but there is a washer/dryer should you need to do laundry.

In addition, I have a 12' aluminum row boat for your use at a small additional weekly charge (free use for reservations longer than 2 weeks)

March was our second year of renting this property. The home is always very clean, well equipped, and Brad and Marilyn are great hosts. Any issues are taken care of immediately. This will be our last year of coming to Florida and we will miss this home. Best wishes to Brad/Marilyn.

My wife, son and I came to Port Charlotte to examine the area for a possible move. Brad and Marylyn met us at the house and made sure we knew what where there and where to find it. The house is beautiful and came complete with everything you would need. It was such a pleasure to get up in the am and go fishing for an hour before everyone else got up. My son and I used the pool several times. It has a shallow and deep end which makes for a fun time. we took the kayaks out a couple of days and the scenery is beautiful. We saw 2 bald eagles in the trees at the end of the island. it was the 1st time my son had ever seen eagles in the wild. I didn't mange to catch any Snook or Tarpon, but they were in the channel. All in all, it was a wonderful time. we brought our old dog with us and he acted like he wanted to stay. The house is so nice that I told Brad/Marilyn to let us know if they ever want to sell! Thank-you so much for your hospitality. I don't think we will ever stay at a motel for vacation again.

Carefree stay in a nice house

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the house Brad and Marilyn where there waiting for us and so we had a warm welcome. The house was very clean and everything was prepared for us. Even the towels had been ready for use on the hanger. Brad and Marilyn explained all necessary features (e.g. how to use the a/c and so on). The pool was also nicely pre-heated and we could use it immediately. The house is fully equipped from coffee filter over liquid soap at the sink up to detergent for the dishwasher. The garage is spacy and we could park our big car without problems. We also liked the speedy internet which we could use to plan our excursions. To learn more about the house or possible activities Brad and Marilyn prepared a big “welcome folder” with lots of information.

There are canoes you could use for a tour on the canal or bikes to explore the neighborhood. We enjoyed very much the grill we used several times. For dinner we loved the lanai and the view over the (caged) pool, backyard and canal.

This was really a careless stay and we loved to be there. Thank you both for the warm welcome and nice holiday we had.
