Description of the Port Charlotte vacation home rental
We have an exquisite newly remodeled 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home for rent in North Port Charlotte, Florida. As soon as you enter, the rich hardwood floors give this home a warm and welcoming appeal. The home shows like a model home - it is well appointed, immaculate and has all of the comforts of home! Gourmet kitchen includes stainless steel appliances and corian counters. A south facing heated pool offers fun and relaxation. This home backs onto a green belt for extra privacy. It is close to all of the amenities of Port Charlotte and North Port. If golf is your passion, North Port has numerous courses that will challenge the best golfer and they are a short drive away.

This 2000 square foot home is great for a couple, yet roomy enough for two couples or a large family. Leave behind cold winter weather and come to the gulf coast of Florida where the weather is guaranteed and the water is always warm and inviting!!

High speed (WIFI) internet and unlimited long distance in North America (VOIP) are included at no additional cost.

This is exactly what we were looking for when we were searching for a property to rent. Being a little hesitant renting from the internet, the owners were fantastic to deal with and the property was perfect, clean, everything worked and located very close to at least 5 excellent golf courses. Shopping and great restaurantsand awesome beach were within minutes but yet it was located in a quiet, premium neighbourhood. Definetly will rent this again and again. Thanks Mercedes and Paul.

This is a beautiful and comfortable home. Lots of shopping close by as well as golf. The only thing else we would like is having a beach closer than 25 miles.

Hello Sandra,
We are thrilled that you were very pleased with our home and had an opportunity to really enjoy this tranquil area of Florida. The proximity of the gulf's beautiful beaches coupled with the beauty of the area is what prompted us to settle in North Port. We look forward to hearing from you again next season!

Our Favourite Place to Stay

June 5, 2009

July 2009 will be our fourth summer staying at one of Mercedes and Paul's properties. We feel very lucky to have found such beautiful accomodations owned by honest, friendly, caring people. We always have a fantastic vacation.. regardless of the weather. We sure do love the "rainy day" shopping! The gulf beaches are incredible, especially the beautiful white sand at Boca Grande! Both of the houses are spotless, well stocked, spacious, well laid-out and conveniently located. Thinking about returning to North Port each summer gets us through our nasty winters!

A short drive to anything you would want to do. The house is a very good value. House was well stocked,clean, owner made sure everything was Ok. Nice area to take walks. Being from Toledo Oh how could we not like being located off Toledo Blvd in Florida. We had our little grand chrilden with us and I liked the safety protection around the pool. Marie and I enjoyed our stay in North Port.

Hi Mercedes, We had a fantastic vacation.. The weather was great. The beaches incredible! Most importantly, the accommodations were Super!! Thanks to you, we were able to enjoy our vacation in peace and tranquility! Your home is well appointed, immaculate, and very spacious! Hospitality at its best!! The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Faridah enjoyed having various department stores (Sears etc.) just 5 minutes from home. You were right, Wal-Mart, Publix and lots more were very close by. Restaurants.. there were countless to choose from!! As for North Port, it's a beautiful place full of people who have big friendly hearts! We left with a smile... Faridah and I are definitely coming back! Thank You!

Nice house in quiet residential area. Good room plan-split bedrooms. Kitchen has abundance of tableware and cooking equipment. Located close to shopping. Beaches further away than expected. Lovely lanui and heated pool. Gas grill, N America phone service just two of the added conveniences of this rental.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Dear Paul and Mercedes,
This was our first time renting a house on the internet and to be honest we were a little skeptical. However, it tuned out to be just what we were looking for. The house was very clean with everything that we needed and the weather was great.
Thanks for a great vacation.

Hello Paul & Mercedes,

We had a great time in Florida and were very pleased with the accommodations. Quiet area, but convenient to our shopping and visiting.

Really appreciated the telephone system you have there.

We just returned from Florida and I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at your home. It was very well equipped...had everything anyone could use. Found it great for baking and even had pizza pans...just like being at home. Also noticed Biscotti jars..just like at home. The area was ideal for a quiet holiday and we could drive to many areas of interest.
Once again...we really enjoyed our visit..we might be renting again next year.
