About David

We purchased Rum Cay from the previous owners Peter & Stephanie Chapman, Kent UK in 2016. Their love of this beautiful unspoilt part of the South West Florida Gulf coast has passed onto us. Punta Gorda to be a haven of peace and tranquillity, friendly locals and unspoilt nature at its best.

We have realized our dream of owning a home here and since then, many guests have enjoyed staying at our much loved Punta Gorda villa.

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

David purchased this house in 2007

Fabulous home in Punta Gorda

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and it was fantastic. The house is spacious and beautiful. We were able to walk to Fisherman's Village to watch the sunset and enjoy a cocktail. Punta Gorda is a great location/destination. We biked for an afternoon, drove to the beach twice, golfed, took nature hikes and did a pub crawl which included the sunset. We are definitely planning to come back next year and hopefully stay at the same house on Rum Cay.

Wonderful Punta Gorda

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were immediately impressed with the appearance of the home; nicely landscaped, in a very peaceful neighborhood. The listing description was accurate; location, photos, etc. The property was clean and well prepared for our visit. The owner went above and beyond to make us are of all local attractions and opportunities available to us during our stay.

We highly recommend this property to all. Could not be more pleased. Wonderful neighbors!!

The property location is close to the historic district of Punta Gorda. Fisherman's Village is a must see attraction with both shops and dining. We enjoy riding bicycles. While in Punta Gorda, we rode our bicycles many miles both along the waterfront on excellent bike trails and into the residential areas.

Thank you for a wonderful get away!!

Awesome location - Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Punta Gorda....What can I say?.... After much research, knew that this was the town for us! After our stay at Villa Rum Cay this was confirmed. An excellent rental that was exactly as represented. Plenty of room, clean and conveniently located within walking distance to Fisherman's Village. Our daughter and her friend enjoyed one side of this spacious home while my wife and I had our own master suite and bath.....

The pool / lanai are is hands down the best aspect of Villa Rum Cay. Relaxing by the pool, cocktails at the pool side bar and the ability to escape and enjoy an afternoon thunderstorm under the covered portion of the lanai made for and unforgettable stay. Rented a boat from Holidayz boat rental and docked it right out back!

Thank you Peter and Stephanie for sharing your little piece of paradise!
