About the property

This home is very private yet extremely close to shopping, beaches, food, golf

***Please note that we have a 90 day minimum stay for January, February & March.****

You’re going to love this luxurious and very spacious 2,400 sq foot 3 Bedroom pool home that sits right on Lake Zappa. It offers a split floor plan with 2.5 baths and a "to die for" kitchen – granite counter tops; extremely spacious cabinets; 4 counter stools and a kitchen table. The open concept floor plan allows for great connection from the kitchen to the family room – where you’ll enjoy leather sofa/love seat with 4 of those seats capable of reclining. Watch the latest film on HBO – or stream any number of services using the smart DVD player.

This home offers a separate living room with comfortable seating for 5 or 6. The living room is connected to the dining room – where you have a solid oak table and 6 seats. Ready to relax – enjoy the great views and comfortable furniture in the sun room. The sunroom offers the opportunity to completely open up to the covered pool area (heater to be added in fall 2016) and grill. Step outside the pool area and onto a patio area with a fire pit – just in case your kids (grandkids) want to roast marshmallows!

The master offers his/her walk in closets and a very spacious master bath – with walk in shower and a separate tub. This home has been recently purchased and has new mattresses, bedding, towels (2016) - updated furniture - new HD TV and high-speed internet.

There’s one guest bedroom with a queen and another with two XL twin beds – both guest bedrooms with walk in closets. And the queen guest bedroom has sliders to the pool area. The guest bathroom also has an access door to the pool.

This property is in a very secluded location in Deep Creek with no through streets - so very little traffic. Friendly neighborhood - you'll see many of our neighbors walking in the morning or at night.

Want to take a day trip? You'll love being close to 75 where 1 1/2 hours north takes you to Tampa or 1 hour south gets you to Naples - with plenty of options in between. Though with all there is to do in Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte - you might not need to plan the day trip. Enjoy the free music in the park (Gilchrist) on Tuesday and Thursday nights - check out Ponce De Leon park (park, beach, trails, wildlife center) - or join the pickle ball craze at Cooper St. Gym (indoor) or play outdoor at Gilchrist.

Hungry - plenty of great nearby options. Harpoon Harry's at Fisherman's Village is always worth a visit as are Hurricane Charlies; Emil's Sport's bar; K's Italian or Jack's for something a little more upscale. Breakfast lovers have plenty to choose from - but two of our favorites include John Ski's and Peters.

There are two bikes in the garage for you to enjoy - along with a couple of tennis rackets and a basketball (convenient for the nearby park). You will also find some pool toys that will help you just melt the day away as you float in serenity while looking at the gorgeous lake view.

I know it sounds over the top – but there’s a reason that Punta Gorda has been named the top affordable down-south destination in the country to escape winter’s chill by Trip Advisor® - the world’s largest online travel source.

About Cindy or John

In addition to running our Michigan resort (Cottages on Little Fish Lake) - we are pleased to expand to Florida with this great rental home in a perfect location. I can only hope you love it as much as us. After our first few days here - my wife said "I don't want to go back".

Cindy or John purchased this house in 2016

Why Cindy or John chose Deep Creek

Before purchasing this home - we had taken several vacations to Punta Gorda. We love the city - the people, the food, the activity, and the convenience of everything. After looking at a number of houses - we knew we had found home as soon as walked in the door. Great entertainment home - or just to enjoy with your spouse.

What makes this house unique

I love the feeling of swimming in the pool - while looking out at the lake views. That never gets old for me.

Amazing house, centrally located to multiple attractions and activities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location for a period of 3 weeks and had a wonderful time in Florida. Booking and check-in was an easy process. The owners are really helpful and organized. The house was clean and located between Tampa and Fort Myers so plenty of things to do. Will definitely book again with Cindy&John if we are in the Punta Gorda area.
