About Troy McLendon
Originally from South Florida and now living in Saint Louis. We love the Punta Gorda area with easy flight access from anywhere in the Midwest or East Coast. Love the outdoors given we are a very active family. Punta Gorda has a small town feel that provides amazing weather year round.
Troy McLendon purchased this House in 2018
Why Troy McLendon chose Punta Gorda
Area is surrounded by water from small salt water canals to large Harbor and Gulf. Great for boating, sailing, fishing and exploring the many islands to include Boca Grande, Cabbage Key, Cayo Costa, Sanibel, and many others. Beaches include Boca Grande, Englewood, Manasota Key and Venice Beach of which all have fantastic shells to include prehistoric shark teeth.

Spent the week here while here for a destination wedding. It was perfect. Barely left the first few days of vacation we enjoyed the house so much. Swam, kayaked, played ping pong and pool. While family had an amazing time! Highly recommend!!
Vacation Living While at Home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Punta Gorda. Staying at this house gave us the opportunity to "live" in the area we are contemplating retiring to. The location was perfect for walking to the famous Fisherman's Village or checking out other restaurants downtown.
The homeowner is a Project Manager's dream. A notebook was available for residents that outlined activities in the area (their personal recommendation list) and various instructions for the household. It came in very handy on a few occasions.
The home was spacious and cozy and truly allowed us to relax. It's set up with a large bed in the master, another large bed in another bedroom, and bunk beds and twin bed in the other room. Ideal for two couples, a family, or small group of friends. Bicycles were available for use as were fishing poles, a kayak, and an air hockey table. The back yard area is equipped for relaxing and entertaining. We took a dip in the pool after being on the bikes all day.
Our stay was in the summer time so it wasn't as busy as I imagine it gets in the winter months, but it was wonderful connecting with residents and speaking with them about their wonderful town.
So glad you enjoyed your time! PG is a great town; we would welcome you back at anytime. September is definitely the slowest month but the town has quite a bit to do outside of the peak months.
Beautiful house to stay in. Highly recommended, Troy is a great host
Beautiful property with great views
We had a wonderful time at this home. The home was very clean, and had all the amenities you would need to feel like you were at a resort. We loved the salt water pool, the clean and comfortable beds, the waterfront views, and the boat lift to store our boat for the week.
The owner was always very responsive even when my questions were already answered in the comprehensive book they left out for guests.
So glad that you enjoyed your stay! Hope that you also enjoyed the boating. Come back soon.
Decorated beautifully and sparkling clean
We were thrilled by the home from the moment we entered, so many small details that made the visit so enjoyable from bikes with helmets, kayaks, to plush thick towels for the pool! Would definitely recommend to friends and family!!!
So glad you all enjoyed your time! We really hope to see you again and thanks for the recommendations!
Wow! The owners have thought of everything. We really enjoyed our stay. We were close to good restaurants and and will definitely book this home again.
