A Little Piece of Paradise in March
We stayed here in March 2017. The listing and pictures were totally accurate. The house was spacious and the pool area was huge. We had randomly picked the Port Charlotte area in which to vacation for the month of March, and it did not disappoint. The nearby beaches were beautiful, especially Boca Grande. The town of Boca Grande itself was very interesting and quaint. We enjoyed walking around, having lunch, and going to the beach. It was more than worth the $6 toll to get there as the beaches were much less crowded than Englewood. We were also in Port Charlotte for the golf and with five courses in Rotonda, we had everything we needed close by. The manager provided prompt service when we needed the gas grill refilled. The heated pool was amazing and regularly serviced each week. All in all, it was a fantastic month - helped along by the perfect weather - no rain at all except for a thunderstorm one evening.
Jan 2018 Trip
The house was amazing. Everything was spotless. We used the hot tub daily. Food in area was great. Boca Grande is a neat place.
Memories Made in Port Charlotte!
My family vacationed in Port Charlotte the 1st week of April 2018 and rented this wonderful house based on the great reviews on Home Away. The house was clean and spacious, and completely as advertised! Being a ranch, it was very easy for my father in law to get around as he is not very mobile. We loved the backyard pool, hot tub and patio. Plenty of sun and shade options for all. My teenage daughters spent a ton of time in the pool. We liked the bonus room with a pool table. Quiet neighborhood and community with very little traffic in the subdivision. It is still being developed. My daughter and I went on a couple of 8-mile bike rides during the week with the bicycles available to renters in the garage. They were in fine shape. The sunset on Boca Grande was stunning, definitely worth the 20-minute drive and $6 toll. With our week being spring break and also Easter, Englewood beach was very crowded during the day. We did not arrive at the beach until just before noon and it was impossible to park. We did end up at Stump Pass Beach just to the south of Englewood and only had to wait 10 minutes or so for a parking spot. It was a beautiful beach. Our weather was PERFECT all week, not a hint of rain and 85 degrees every day. We spent so much time in and around the pool that we only made it out to dinner once all week (Farlow’s on the water, great meal, nice patio for dining) as we used the BBQ grill just about every night. If you are a thrill seeker and want to give parasailing a try, I’d definitely recommend using the company Parasail Englewood. My eldest daughter and I had a great experience 500+ feet above Englewood beach, and we had multiple dolphins horsing around our boat. Could not have asked for a better week! The management company was helpful as I initially could not locate directions for heating the hot tub. Once I found them they were easy to understand. Rebecca and Darren were a joy to deal with throughout the whole process. We look forward to returning to Port Charlotte in the near future!
Prior to arriving, Rebecca was very responsive to all our questions, we needed some flexibility and she worked with us best she could, The packet she sent was thourogh and gave us plenty of activity ideas. Upon arrival, we were amazed on the open concept and clean spacious property, Their management company was quickly responsive on any additional questions we had. Your literally 10 -15 minutes from everything, Englewood,Bach with plenty of outdoor tili style dining, beaches, Furniture was comfortable, pool and hot tub were fantastic, I would highly reccommend this place to anyone, and if I could return I would in a heartbeat Mark
Perfect In Paradise
Our stay at the Melport House was pretty much perfect. The owners were great about corresponding with us prior to our vacation, and kept us informed of important information pertinent to our stay. From the moment we arrived we were able to easily access entry and were very pleased with this charming home. We settled right in and it felt like our "home away from home". The house is equipped with everything you could need, from cookware to sheets/towels. There was a very helpful binder put together for our use to help familiarize us with amenities in the South Gulf Cove and surrounding areas. The pool area and hot tub were wonderful as well. This house was very clean and we would highly recommend this as a great place to stay. We look forward to going back in the future to enjoy another beautiful vacation at the Melport House.
Our family vacation was wonderful! Darren and Rebecca have a beautiful home situated just steps from a private dock on the canal. The neighborhood was very quiet and friendly. Upon arrival their home was clean and very well kept. A clean stay is top priority when we travel. This home was very well maintained. The beds were very comfortable and linens smelled very fresh and clean. The lanai was so very spacious and the pool and jacuzzi were enormous as stated. Our children ages 10, 11, and 20 caught various fish and sting ray from the dock. Beaches and grocery stores were just minutes away. We filled a pint jar full of fossilized shark teeth in just two weeks. Darren and Rebecca were very accommodating as my emails were always answered in a timely manner. The management company even came to the house to assist with any needs. We highly recommend this home to anyone who may be searching for an unforgettable get away! Thank you Darren and Rebecca for sharing your piece of paradise with our loved ones!
Wonderful, relaxing vacation. Stress-Free
We had a wonderful time. The house is everything advertised and more. The area is peaceful and very quiet. South Gulf Cove is near the center of businesses and beaches but tucked away from the noise and stress that is usually expect in these areas.
Wonderful, stress-free vacation
Everything we anticipated and so much more. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We love South Gulf Cove and truly enjoyed your home.
Wonderful Relaxing House and Location
This was our second time to stay at the villa and it is still the perfect place and location. The house was clean and plenty of space with a nice Pool/Billiard room. The real gem is the outdoor area. The swimming pool is excellent and if you like relaxing in the Florida sunshine, the large screened outdoor area faces south, so you get the sun all day. The location itself is close to the beaches and is also the ideal spot if you like fishing. Enjoy.
Quiet spot for our big family to relax
My husband, au pair, and 4 children (ages 1-8) spent two weeks in this home over Christmas. The layout of the house is great for a large family with young kids, and the pool area was beautiful. We enjoyed grilling and eating dinner each night outside watching beautiful sunsets over the canal. The nearby beaches were gorgeous as well. We spent time walking and jogging the quiet streets in the neighborhood as well. Our 8 year old loved the pool table!
