We live in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, a scenically beautiful place centrally located between Philadelphia and NYC, so we are a tourist hot spot. We have been enjoying being involved in the short term/vacation rental arena for 10 years, which started with us being renters ourselves. Each time we visited a new place, we shied away from big resorts or hotels because we wanted to have a more local and genuine experience, not to mention how those private accommodations were the same price, if not lower, than resort or hotels. Our enjoyment of these home away from home experiences led us to offering our first vacation rental as owners, in 2010, with a small, 2 bedroom cottage close to home in the Poconos. We had so much fun doing it up, we bought a second....Bramasole is our 4th (and mos likely our final, because its a lot of work!) But, we put our hearts into each home, it's NOT just a business to us. We understand and appreciate how precious leisure and family time is, so we go through great lengths to provide a top notch stay each and every time.

Fun in the sun!
Your home was magnificent! The layout was excellent for two couples traveling together. Even our two pups felt at home, and they especially loved the walk to the Hounds on Henry Street for some fun. Not one thing did we need when preparing for cooking, grilling, or cleaning. The neighborhood was so quiet, yet so close to everything. Thank you so much for accommodating us Ohioans!
Clean and cute property
The property is well maintained. The kitchen is well-equipped. Lots of outdoor seating. Good fishing right off the dock. Love how the house was decorated. Really enjoyed our stay.
We really appreciate your choosing Bramasole., your taking the time to review it and your upmost respect for the care of it while staying !
We had a great time in Punta Gorda and highly recommend this home to visitors.
This home is clean, organized, and well equipped. It’s location is perfect and Christine, the owner, was very attentive to questions. I recommend this home and community!
An amazing property! Great communication!
What a beautiful home. The pictures are gorgeous but it's even better in person. Very spacious. Beautiful furnishings. Very well stocked, they thought of everything! The pool is great, and the dock just steps from the house. We caught snapper and sail cat fish from the dock. We had an amazing week and would highly recommend this property! It's everything and more that we hoped for.
Christine was great to talk with, she even called and checked on us half way through the week.
Kim , you were an absolute joy to deal with . Your appreciation of the house and your very personable approach to communication from start to finish really makes a difference in this type of “business “. It’s not really a business , it’s a very personal thing , to share a home with a complete stranger , so having very kind and warm people like you as guests make it howvit should be . We are extremely grateful after finding out more about how little time off that you and your husband get each year (with your having 16 children , G-d bless you !!!) that you chose to rent our place . Thanks for sharing your photos of all the fish you caught from our dock !!!! I hope to see you again next year !
Great choice for vacation
I would highly recommend this vacation home , Great location , home is absolutely beautiful. Pictures do not do it justice, Good location ,quiet, close to shopping, everything you could ask for.
Thank you for being such a nice guest. Our cleaning crew said they would never have known that you were there! We hope you will keep us in mind for future travel ,
If they would sell it, we would buy it!
From the moment we walked in, we could tell how much thought the owners put in to the house to make it a perfect vacation home. It was comfortable and inviting, very apparent that the owners furnished it to make it feel like home. There are 2 dining areas, 2 living rooms, a modern kitchen and a master suite on one side of the house completely separate from the two guest rooms which gave us all a little privacy. We could not have asked for more. We walked in to town one night and to Fisherman’s Village almost every day. The central location of the home was just outstanding. The town is very “walking friendly” with many trails and paths meant for cycling or walking. We were able to use bicycles completely free of charge from Fisherman’s Village and use them for the entire day to get a better look at the town . We loved the house and location so much that we told Christine if she ever wants to sell it, to please contact us first!
Thank you Robyn! I will certainly let you know if we ever want to sell it, but as it seems, we only just purchased it over the holidays last year because our 1st house 2 blocks away was rented so often, we could barely come to town ourselves! Being so close to Fisherman's Village was the real draw for us when we bought it. I enjoyed choosing the furnishings for the house and am glad you appreciated it. I hope you will consider being a returning guest in future. Thanks for laundering all the towels!!!!
