Why Pat Harrington chose Punta Gorda

We chose to have our vacation home in historic Punta Gorda because Florida's best small city has the allure of a world class resort with a hometown welcome. National travel and lifestyle editors tout its premier sports and recreation, blue ribbon arts and culture, and its variety of casual and fine dining.

What makes this house unique

A great place to be all year round. The pool is riverfront with direct access to the harbor. A great advantage also if you bring your boat (boat dock available). Whispering Palms is on a quiet street, yet 5 minutes away from Punta Gorda historic centre, beaches are close as well as shopping and restaurants, but if you like a quiet day .... just enjoy the house !

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving Week in Punta Gorda with members of our extended family. Because they live in a condominium, we needed a place of our own so that we could travel with our dogs. I have rented a number of homes over the past few years in Punta Gorda and in other parts of Florida. This home was, by far, the one that I have enjoyed the most. It is well-decorated and well-furnished, and I felt like I was staying in someone else's home, not a rental.

Everything was very clean, and we had everything we needed at our fingertips. Rather than looking around, this will be the home that we will rent again when we come down with our dogs and need a place to stay! Absolutely lovely home!! Thank you for sharing it with us!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing, I fell in love as soon as I walked in. It is so beautifully decorated and unbelievably clean. The owners did a great job renovating this house. The kitchen was well stocked, they thought of everything one might need in a kitchen and supplied it. I think it was pretty much near perfect- probably the best house I have ever rented. The beds are extremely comfortable which is a rarity in a rental. Although I brought my own garbage bags, laundry soap, dish washing liquid, baggies, etc. the house was stocked with all of these items. Should you need anything the management company was wonderful to work with-thank you Genevieve!! I highly recommend this house and definitely plan on renting it again!!

First Class Canal Front Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous, exceptionally well maintained home with designer furnishings and appointments! The owners have missed nothing. Anything you might need to make your stay more comfortable or enjoyable has been supplied for your use. It is apparent the house was renovated from top to bottom, so in essence, you are renting a new home. The property is extremely clean and easy to keep clean. My husband and I spent my birthday week at this property and we truly did not want to leave. It is very conveniently located to Fishermans Village, Rts 41 and 75 and many fine restaurants. We highly recommend this property to anyone who wants first class accomodations...this property does not disappoint!

Relaxing and Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful weeks stay at Whispering Palms. The house was spotless clean and beautifully with all new furniture and appliances. We spent time fishing on the dock, playing in the pool, and lounging within the screened lanai. The location in PGI was also great - close to everything, yet on a street with not much traffic, so it was very quiet. The owners have done an amazing job of decorating and making guests feel very welcome. Would definitely stay again and would recommend this house to anyone.

Great Stay In PGI!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with her mom, stayed here for a week in the latter part of August. We really enjoyed our time in this lovely home and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay in Punta Gorda Isles. There is nice new tile throughout the house, new appliances and Keurig coffee maker in the kitchen, new furnishings and decor and bright fresh paint throughout the house. Very tastefully decorated and comfortable beds!
