About the Owner

We first fell in love with this beautiful unspoilt part of the South West Florida Gulf coast whilst on honeymoon in 1988 -after the noise, crowds and hectic pace in Orlando we discovered Punta Gorda to be a haven of peace and tranquillity, friendly locals and unspoilt nature at its best. One day we vowed to have a home here.

In 2003, two children later, we finally realised our dream of owning a home here, and since then our family, friends, and many guests have enjoyed staying at our much loved Punta Gorda villa.

In fact, we loved it so much that in 2007 we bought a second villa here!

We are very proud of our homes here and go to a great deal of time and trouble to ensure that they are a memorable place for our family,friends and guests to stay.

Sunset cruise in the harbour is great.The house had everything we could have wanted, clean,well equipped and pleasant decor. Thanks to the Chapmans for letting us use their lovely home!"

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely villa for two weeks and used it as a base to tour southwest florida and attend spring training games. From the start Peter was a delight to deal with, efficient, prompt, friendly and helpful we could not have asked for more. The villa was clean and had everything you could need for a relaxing base. The view over the water was pleasant and ideal if you like fishing. Close to Punta Gorda where there are some nice restaurants including our favourite 'Sandra's' plus a local breakfast place 'PGI's' the villa is well situated and I would recommend it to anybody considering staying in the area.

Another wonderful holiday at Palm Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was the 6th time we had stayed at Palm Villa but the first since 2008 - it was wonderful being back and it seemed like we had never been away. As good as ever - thoroughly recommended for a laid back and relaxing holiday away from the theme parks and is as good as it looks in the photos. Great restaurants all around the area and the beaches at Boca Grande, Fort Myers & Sanibel are brilliant. If you have the time head for Anna Maria Island north of Sarosota - well worth the drive. A great place to stay.

Great holiday, location, location, as they say!

  • 5 of 5

Property did not disappoint, pool was great, the waterway location provided insight to new wildlife Red Cardinal outside main bedroom. The restaurants along the US41 north and south, but Punta Gorda is the jewel, search it on foot, free public parking - bargain, we knew the area it's ideal for the Everglades and Sarasota culture. Peter checked in on us on our first day, all neighbours are really friendly. Great holiday

Palm Villa

  • 5 of 5

Palm Villa is an absolute delight! A quiet location in a residential street with the rear of the property overlooking a canal.

The owners provided excellent customer service from the minute the booking was made until we left the property. The villa was clean, very well equipped and maintained. The huge pool and BBQ area were ideal for relaxing times in the sun.

The location which is close to Fisherman's Village with its shops and restaurants is an added bonus. There is a range of first class eateries in Punta Gorda a mere 10 minutes away.

Sunsets and views across the bay help to make this a relaxing holiday.

Palm Villa Tranquility

  • 4 of 5

Palm Villa is located in a perfect area - Punta Gorda Isles...close to town and Fishermans Village. Not too far from beaches via close freeways. The home is big, laid out well and very comfortable. Very large pool and deck area overlooking the canal where you can watch the boats. Great exposure. Home had everything you need including BQ grill, bikes, and beach gear. Extra large glass sliding doors provide great views from living room and master bedroom to Lania and pool. Owner very responsive and helpful. Enjoyed our stay and hope to go back.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean and extremely accommodating & all appliances in the home were functional. The home is also very spacious and was exactly as advertized. The first several days were somewhat cool but that didn't hinder us in utilizing the pool (it is worth paying the additional money to keep the pool heated). We went on two boat cruises (Sunset and Burnt Store) and they were well worth the money. Restaurants were as described by Peter in the literature that was provided. All in all, a marvelous experience for the short week that we were there especially getting away from the Ohio snow storms. So much so, we bought a house in Punta Gorda and we will make that our retirement home this August.

Thanks, Peter.
