About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6), over 2000 sq. ft. under AC

Situated on a scenic, salt-water, canal lot with quick access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, this magnificent home was built in 2002 and comes newly furnished, and features all the amenities you would expect for total comfort. Take a dip in the heated pool or enjoy breakfast on the lanai, all within a new screened enclosure for added comfort. Walk out to the dock and board your boat stored on the 10,000-pound boat lift and head out to Charlotte Harbor or the Gulf of Mexico for a day of fishing or a visit to historic Punta Gorda.

Once inside, relax under the vaulted cathedral ceilings with an open floor plan that includes a large, porcelain tiled, eat-in kitchen with breakfast bar area leading to a huge great room with cable television and surround sound speakers. From this vantage point, look out over the lanai through the sliding doors toward the canal and enjoy a spectacular sunset available with the western exposure. Enjoy your favorite cuisine in the formal dining room or curl up with a good book in the carpeted study/living room.

The master suite has a queen-size bed, walk-in closet, and private bathroom which includes a soaking tub and walk-in shower. The pool area can be directly accessed from the master bath. The split bedrooms have full-size beds with plenty of closet space. All bedrooms have lighted ceiling fans. The utility room includes a large capacity washer and dryer and offers additional space for storage.

This tastefully decorated home has central air conditioning, with multiple cable television hook ups. Weekly lawn and pool services are provided.

For those with an interest in baseball, enjoy a Tampa Bay Rays spring training game at nearby Charlotte Sports Park (6 miles) or during the regular season, take in a Charlotte Stone Crabs, Class A, evening game with a $6 ticket and frequent special promotion games.

Take your chances on the slot machine, blackjack table or poker table at either of the 2 Hard Rock Cafe hotel/casinos within easy driving Tampa (1 1/2 hour drive) and Hollywood (2 hour drive)or at nearby Seminole casino in Immokalee (1 hour).

We are located just minutes away from the Port Charlotte town center, as well as area beaches and recreational facilities. Local airports, Fort Myers and Sarasota, are within a 45-minute drive.

About The Owner

Hello from New Jersey. We are the Arico's, Jim and Diane.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Port Charlotte

We purchased this salt water canal home in 2005. We are part of the baby boomer generation and have hopes in the near future of moving here, where the sun always seems to be shining, and the waters of Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico await the many cruises we'll take aboard our pleasure cruiser. We welcome you to come here to escape the harsh winters of the north and enjoy all that this area has to offer. You won't regret your decision.

What makes this house unique

Cathedral ceiling with open split floorplan. Surround sound speakers. Wireless internet. Waterfront property. Western sky sunsets. Very quiet neighborhood. Heated pool. New seawall and landscape updated.

Super comfortable well located vacation home with great owners.

  • 4 of 5

Really nice home well laid out and with a very pleasant view across a wide canal. We were only two but this home could accomodate 6 comfortably. Everything works and when the water heater failed it was fixed in 2 HOURS. Two large Tvs ( no HD though) and very good high speed wifi although limited to 20 gigs per month ( owners plan to get this increased). this is an owners home not exclusively a vacation rental and has loads of holiday equipment inc bikes, fishing poles, beach chairs etc the lania pool and BBQ area vey good though needing a bit of cleaning( but very understandable as it. had suffered a little from hurricane Irma which went through two weeks before our stay) owners exceptionally helpfull (as were neighbours) and were on call for anything anytime even ‘where is the tin opener?’ Lol. Very well located for Punta Gorda, Boca Grande, Englewood, Port Charlotte and 10mins to I75. Highly recomended.

The best!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for a whole month and could not have been happier. The owners were very co-operative about any requests we far as purchasing two bicycles when we asked if they were available at the house. We loved the heated pool and the surrounding deck area. Great for a very laid back vacation! Would definitely rent this property again.

Wonderful home exactly as pictured. We stayed there for two months and would highly recommend it. The owners Jim and Diane were super to work with and made sure to take care of any needs we had. The house was clean, quiet, and well stocked for anything you might need from the kitchen, pool, or beach. My husband enjoyed fishing in the back yard on the canal and the heated pool was much appreciated. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home directly on the canal. House is very tastefully decorated, with everything you could possibly need, even pool floats, fishing poles, and coolers for the beach! Very centrally located to all the beautiful beaches and close to shopping. Owners Jim and Diane were extremely pleasant and helpful. Would recommend this home to anyone looking to vacation in the SW Florida area.

Great !!!!!

Our stay couldn't have been better. The home was all we hoped for and more and the owners worked with us on any request we made when making reservations. The area is beautiful. We really appreciated the beauty of the canals going out to the river. Look forward to future stays.
