Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Marriana and Jim's place is wonderful. The condo is beautiful and so comfortable. The area is just gorgeous and peaceful. The lanai was probably our favorite spot, nice fans, good comfy seating and a wonderful view of the canals. The neighborhood is so quite, it's like you are there all alone.

Marriana and Jim were quick to respond to any questions we had and helped us with any issue, such as Hurricane Irma. They were very helpful in letting us know what needed to be done.

Unfortunately our trip was cut short by the hurricane and we had to leave with 3 weeks remaining in our stay. Marriana and Jim stayed in contact with us in our departure and waiting to see what was going to happen. Though they sustained no damage to the condo and told us we could go back, we thought it best to not try and go and put a strain on those trying to get their lives back together.

We would stay there in a heart beat. Just a great place to be.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Libby for writing such a thoughtful review. We are so glad you had a great time while you were there. We are so sorry that you had to leave early. I am going to write a letter to your insurance company. We feel terrible that you purchased special insurance from Home Away and were refused reimbursement for your hotel expenses after evacuating the area. If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know.

Paradise is right!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was heaven! Beautiful views of canal, nice neighborhood, friendly neighbors...yet so quiet and peaceful! Owners are absolutely wonderful, respond to questions immediately, and pay attention to every detail! The condo is beautifully decorated, and fully stocked with everything you need! (Right down to the screwdriver I used to replace a battery!) All you need is your swimsuit! Punta Gorda is a lovely town, with excellent restaurants and lots to do. Most peaceful, relaxing summer of my life!! Loved every minute and will definitely be back!!!!
