Charlotte Harbor: If you love the water, this is the place for you! Fish, birdwatch, powerboat, sail, kayak, sunbathe, bike, hike, golf? It's all here for you.

Charlotte Harbor is a marine estuary flowing to the Gulf of Mexico via Boca Grande Pass.

On the south side of Charlotte Harbor you will find the city of Punta Gorda. Downtown features several fine restaurants, art galleries and promenades along the harbor.

Southwest Florida: Port Charlotte is located halfway between Naples to the south and Tampa/St. Petersburg/Clearwater to the north.

Tampa features Busch Gardens and Ybor City as attractions

Sarasota, some 40 miles north of Port Charlotte, features the Ringling Circus and Art Museum as well as the Ringling Mansion. The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit.

To the south we first have Ft. Myers, home of the winter laboratory of Thomas Edison. You can tour the Edison grounds as well as the winter cottage of Henry Ford. Sanibel Island, home of white sand beaches and incredible shelling, is a barrier island reached by car through Ft Myers.

Bonita Beach and Naples offer upscale shopping and dining, the arts and the beautiful beaches of Marco Island.

The wilderness area of the 10,000 islands is a short drive from Naples.

Theme Park Florida: Where to begin? Orlando of course! Disney World, Epcot, Seaworld, Universal Studios, waterparks and a whole lot more. This is all less than a 3 hour car ride away!

Peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed visiting with the owners who live within minutes from the rental.

The layout of the house was awesome for privacy with the bedrooms on different sides of the house. The only complaint

the twin beds were very hard. Lucky we brougot our memory foam which helped greatly. This is pretty typical of most rentals we've experience in our travels. This house had everything you need and lanai setting was beautiful with all the birds and squirrels.

The dock worked great for our small pontoon boat and fishing. Didn't catch anything but catfish 😍?

We will return

  • 5 of 5

This house met all of our needs. We kayak fished in Alligator Bay, dined in Punta Gorda, & just stayed at the house some days to relax. The house has more amenities than any other online rental I’ve seen. The dock, the screened-in pool, the layout of the house, etc. couldn’t have been better. The host was great, as well.

Well-maintained, clean home. Quiet, pleasant neighborhood. Don and Laura were wonderful. So attentive and accomodating! Of all the vacation homes I have rented this is one of

the best and, again, I cannot say enough about Don and Laura. We look forward to a repeat stay next summer!

Nice house. But needs some T.L.C.

  • 3 of 5

House was nice but it seemed like it has been awhile since it's been dusted. Had the odor of a wet dog when we walked in. Pool needed to be cleaned. And the beds felt like we were sleeping on bricks. It was nice out on the dock but you can't spend all your time out there. Great location, short travel time to the beaches, restaurants and family activities.

Owner's Response: We are most disappointed to hear you were not completely pleased with your stay at Spring Lake House. We have owned and operated this property personally since 2010 and have never received a negative review in those 7 years. In fact, I believe we have an overall 5 star rating. We were on vacation in June and early July and hired others to manage the cleaning and pool maintenance in our absence. Perhaps the property was not seen to in the same fashion as when we do everything ourselves. We also have never had negative comments about the mattresses. Perhaps that is a personal preference issue. Cordially, Don and Laura

Boca Grande

Port Charlotte is located on Charlotte Harbor, a large marine estuary. The harbor offers access to the Gulf of Mexica via Boca Grande Pass, site of the best tarpon fishing in the world. The harbor itself abounds with opportunities for in-shore fishing, deep sea fishing, sailing, powerboating, kayaking, bird watching, porpoise sighting, manatee encounters, white sand beach walking, snorkeling, diving, shark tooth hunting, fossil hunting and more. Port Charlotte is a short drive from Disney World, Sea World and other Orlando attractions, as well as Sarasota's Ringling Museum, Selby Gardens and Tampa's Busch Gardens. Port Charlotte is a 3.5 hour drive from Miami and Miami Beach, and 5 hours from the Florida Keys.

This is simply a location central to many of Florida's finest destinations, but it is certainly a premier destination in itself.
