Hardly could have been better! With our family of 7, everyone was comfortable and so pleased with the views and pool and everything staying in a home provides. Yes, not all the cookware one has at home, but we made due!
Beds comfortable, water pressure good!
Some floaties!
Very well could return one day!
Erlen B. Aug 2021
The home was very spacious and in a great location, right on the waterfront with a big enough pool and outdoor area for the whole family to enjoy. Dolphins passed through in the waterway and the kids fished off the back dock. Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Port Charlotte area.

The house had plenty of space for 8 people, loved the pool area, beds were all comfortable, kitchen was nice! Pictures online were accurate. They did have a screen out in the pool area (maybe due to storm) but they fixed it before we left.
Carol J. May 2021
We loved the amount of space the house had. The view was spectacular. The house was stocked with pretty much everything we needed.
Sandy F. Apr 2021
The house and the pool were wonderful, house was clean, it could have a few more kitchen utensils. But all and all it was a wonderful vacation house.
Kenneth G. Mar 2021
The house is great, furniture/ beds are comfortable. Basically the whole back of the house opens up to the pool and A magnificent view. My family loved it, we’ll be back.
Toni P. Feb 2021
The house was beautiful. Well stocked. Huge! Great location.
Mellissa H. Jan 2021
Rented this house twice now. The waterfront views and screened in pool area are amazing. The house is large, open, light, and has 4 bedrooms, all with grown up beds. This house is clearly a rental as it has not been updated and amenities such as kitchen equipment, dishes, mugs, cups, utensils, etc... are old, mismatched, and sparse and beds are just ok, especially for the price. I would probably go back again because of the views, size, and location, but it is disappointing to pay premium prices and have to sacrifice on so many small details that could be easily updated.
Kimberly C. Oct 2020
Loved everything
Just was missing lounge chairs. Adding those by the pool would make it 100%
Manager response:
Hi Kimberly! Thank you for staying with us. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the home and your stay. We appreciate your suggestion and always look forward to improving our homes for future guests. We hope to host you again!

Big house with great views. Boat lift has a cable that is almost broke making it useless. Refrigerator was hot inside when we arrived and takes 24 hours to start to cool. No food or drinks can be put in it for over a day.
Benjamin T. May 2020
The good:
Large house lots of room, huge doors can be open to the pool area for an indoors outdoor feel, very comfortable beds, great price. I think this place could be great if some guest needs and desires we're taken into consideration.
The bad:
I don't think the place had been maintained during covid19 closure. Pool hadn't been cleaned in a month, killed three or four roaches in the house, weeds growing through patio walkway and in gardens, grill was out of gas and spare empty too. Lack of/low quality cooking utensils, no egg flipper, knives are dull as bone even dull for Walmart brand. This is a very nice house I'm surprised they would furnish it with cheap junk. Cheap furnishings in patio pool area ripped/worn out cushions, no loungers at all, not much to lounge in pool either. Very limited supply of dish and laundry detergent I think three washes each maybe, I asked and this is vacasa standards. Only one roll of toilet paper per bathroom, I think that's crazy, if the most used bathroom runs out am I supposed to rob one of the other bathrooms? Also vacasa standards. No furniture on the dock. Dated light fixtures.

For parents with young kids: not little kid friendly, multiple stairs, lots of low to the ground glass decorations, floors are extremely slippery when wet and kids will inevitably come running in from the pool with wet feet, very echoey house. If you're going to book with toddlers, bring baby gate for three stairs entrances, move all breakable up on higher shelf, put down bath Matt's inside and outside of the doorways, do something with the folding mirror decoration downstairs, toddler/young kid danger, no kid bed crib pack n play or highchair.
Manager response:
Hi, Benjamin! We are sorry to read you had several frustrations with your stay. Pool services are scheduled weekly for this home, and pest control comes by monthly. The patio furniture and grill have been updated, and the kitchenware has been replaced. All couches have been professionally cleaned, and the antique kitchen table is in good condition. We do only supply 3 laundry/dish tabs per reservation. Thank you!
Lorelei E. Feb 2020
We loved the open spaces and poolside for conversation. Very much appreciated the baby fence protecting our granddaughter from the pool and it was easy to move out of the way when she left. The house was clean and lovely. Would have appreciated a couple of loungers around the pool. The patio furniture was fine, but most of the wicker furniture was broken and there were no cushions on the upper deck furniture. The kitchen equipment was woefully inadequate for cooking. Not a knife sharp enough to cut a steak in the house and no serving dishes. Someone in charge needs to look at what is supplied with a critical eye. Management was very prompt in replacing an empty propane tank. As a general criticism of Vacasa management, the listing should have indicated that heated pool was a substantial additional charge. Loved the Harry Potter hidey hole.

Love the setting on the Peace River. Pool was very nice and I kayaked on the river. House was big and spacious.
Mellissa H. Jan 2020
This house has a great layout, great light, beautiful view and nice pool (heat was expensive). House in good location, convenient to everything. Loved having private bedrooms all with large beds. Nice double living rooms. Flatscreens but not HD cable so picture is smaller than the screen. Seemed cheap but not a major deal. But, some TLC and replenishing needed. Patio furniture was sparse, with missing or worn/ripped cushions. Some was damaged. Needs a couple lounge chairs on patio. Kitchen supplies minimal and very worn. Basically clean but a deep cleaning is needed. Attention to some details and some minimal replenishing and this would be fabulous. Vacasa team was great- very responsive, friendly, professional.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Mellissa. We have advised our housekeeping team to take extra time on getting this house cleaned this week and apologize for any cleanliness oversights you experienced. We are looking at replacing the furniture in the near future. We hope to see you again!

I only say that because I want it to stay open for when we COME BACK! Everything was AWESOME (except weather). This was our 3rd time to this property and its been better every time.

Beautiful house in a picturesque location. Loved the house which was very well furnished with comfortable beds & sofas. Kitchen was also well equipped with all the usual items, nice touch that there we’re some dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid and washing pods. The only thing we felt was missing were some sun beds on the pool deck however we bought some portable ones in Walmart which we left in the house for future guests to enjoy.

Home, pool, and amenities were great. Family away-from-home, had a wonderful time. Everything was just as you'd expect when away from home with exception of poor TV channels to view.
Sheryl P. Nov 2018
Being able to come outside w your coffee and have the sun greet you each morning was awesome. The beautiful pool was inviting anytime of the day and evening swims were like therapy after sightseeing. River view was especially calming with numerous sightings of tropical birds.
Sheila S. Nov 2018
Great house. Perfect layout for sharing and privacy. Plenty of room, convenient location.
Todd B. Nov 2018
The house was very spacious and just as described. I would recommend this awesome place to anyone.
Joann B. Aug 2018
If this house was for sale I’d buy it! Beautiful, open, spacious, perfect location.
nancy s. Jul 2018
I have rented many homes and this one was by far my favorite. Everything you could need was at our disposal and the view was so pretty. We took a day trip to mineral springs which was so relaxing. We also rented a boat and docked it on the pier. The house was clean and beds so comfortable. Master bed and bath was amazing. I felt like a Kardashian. Lol. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Natalie R. Jul 2018
Really spacious and in a quiet neighborhood with beautiful canal access. Would definitely consider returning!!!
