Perfect family vacation!
Everything about this home was wonderful. The home was stunning, perfectly comfortable and had all the creature comforts we needed for our stay. The kitchen was well equipped to have most of our meals at home. Our family loved having access to kayaks which were used daily and the pool was of course a major hit. We had one day of rain and there was plenty of room for us to read, watch movies, play games. We even took advantage of the little park in the neighborhood to throw the ball around as the kids were missing baseball/softball practice while we were away. The location was ideal as I have plenty of family in town and it was close enough to the beaches we enjoy. This will be our 'go to home' if it is available when we are visiting family in Port Charlotte. Jim was very responsive to any questions and open to all feedback. We didn't want to leave and haven't stopped talking about our trip since we've returned.
Beautiful Home; Attentive Owners
This property is exactly as it looks in the pictures with many updates, a very comfortable pool area and a large dock for fishing. The neighborhood is quiet and the house is close to many restaurants in downtown Punta Gorda and to the beach. Our son caught numerous fish of different species (including snook, mangrove snapper, and a stingray) from the dock and we even saw a dolphin swim through one afternoon when the tide was high.
The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are updated and clean. The kitchen is also newly updated which made it easy for us to cook Easter Brunch during our stay. Jim and Paula also have everything you need for the beach or enjoying the day by the pool.
The Dunns were excellent hosts. We had one small issue that Jim told us about right away. His communication with us was outstanding and the issue was quickly resolved. He and Paula sincerely want their guests to enjoy their stay. We have rented through VRBO and AirBNB and this was by far our favorite rental. We certainly hope to have the opportunity to rent from the Dunns again.
Just Book This Home!!
Five Stars, People! I'm one of those persons that spends hours online examining each property and its details before I book. I loved this place. Here's ONLY a few reasons why:
-It has everything you will need.
-Layout was great. Lots of space. Lanai was way bigger than pictures show.
-Short car rides to all you need, especially Publix grocery store, and restaurants in downtown Punta Gorda (Uber was only $9.50).
-Two minor hiccups were perfectly resolved by owners; they are super attentive!
-This was unexpected: We stayed during height of Spring Break and this block was super quiet! So relaxing. Saw no more than half dozen people all week.
We highly recommend this home and hope to be back next winter.
Terry, Thanks for the great review. So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. I particularly enjoyed our communications and love the picture you sent of the bald eagle. We would love to have you back any time. Thank you! Jim
relaxing place for our family vacation
The property was as described in the listing and everything was clean and well kept. We enjoyed using the kayaks and the pool. The kitchen was well equipped with cooking utensils and pots, pans and serving dishes and there were plenty of place settings. Nicely furnished and very comfortable. For our family dinners, the grill was a little small but in good working order. We enjoyed our time here and would certainly come again.
Thank you for the excellent review. We're glad you had a great stay. We also enjoy the kayaks, pool, and great views. We appreciate your comments and will be upgrading the grill. We would live to have you back any time.
A magical holiday hideaway
Port Charlotte is close to several beautiful beaches as well as quaint shops and restaurants in Punta Gorda. We live local, so we didn’t need any of that. We just needed a vacation, and due to family concerns haven’t been able to get out of town. The Tropical Oasis is it’s own self contained getaway. You need not leave the house.
The view is stunning, especially the play of light on the water at sunrise and sunset. The heated pool was a treat during the cool snap, and the outdoor bathroom was so handy. It’s nice to have a hot shower close when getting out of an 84* pool into 58* wind!
We caught the requisite dozens of catfish, some sheepshead, snapper and a sting ray. We got several blue crabs in the trap, stone crabs are in season, but alas. Maybe next trip. It’s a 5 minute kayak paddle out to the big water, and definitely worth the effort. I recommend heading out at low tide, paddling out from the dock is a little tricky.
We’ve stayed at a few VRBO rentals, and are used to a great view at the expense of a dated house. The Tropical Oasis is totally updated and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook your catch. Huge TV’s, new comfy linens, plush towels, pool toys. Jim has really thought of everything you could possibly need.
We plucked mom from the nursing home and brought her over for Thanksgiving dinner outside by the pool. The only game she is able to play is Rummikub....and we found one in the cabinet.
This was without a doubt our favorite rental ever. We did not want to leave. We will definitely stay again if we have the chance.
After reading your review, we can't wait for our next stay. Thank you very much for the kind words and wonderful review. We're always thrilled when someone enjoys our home. We would love to have you back anytime.
Clean, well maintained, nice pool, dock and literally around the corner from the river/harbor.
Jim is a great host. He actually spent a half hour with me on the phone prior to our trip sharing insights and suggestions about the area. The house had everything we needed and more, and the location is great! Thanks, Jim!
Thanks for the great review. I'm glad you guys enjoyed your stay. We'd love to have you back anytime.
