"Great villa; great location; helpful, friendly owner"

This was our fourth villa vacation in Punta Gorda and Villa Rum Cay is the best yet for quality and location. The lanai, which includes an attractive bar, and pool area are fantastic and the interior … More

"Exactly what we were looking for."

We've rented several homes in Florida before, even some more expensive, but Villa Rum Cay was by far the best place we ever stayed at. My wife and I and senior in-laws wanted a nice, roomy, peac… More

"A perfect vacation rental"

A very comfortable home with everything you could want. Lovely outlook in quiet residential street. A home from home.
Things to do...
-Boca Grande is a MUST with fabulous beaches and great vibe (saw a manatee!)
-Loose Caboose (Boca Grande) which has incredible fresh fish
-Rent a boat (fishing variable)
-Wonderful public tennis courts 1 mile from the house. Right by the sea and great condition.
-Fresh lemonade in Fishermans Village
Things to avoid...
-Laicheys Crab Shack. Hugely disappointing dinner, fish unfresh and poorly cooked.

We would absolutely recommend this property. Owner was very friendly and welcoming.

"Total Satisfaction with Villa Rum Cay"

As first timers at this type of a vacation we had a few worries as to whether we had made a good decision with this booking but we were totally blown away by the beautiful home and the gorgeous pool. The peace and tranquility of Rum Cay provided us with a wonderful time of rest and relaxation. We enjoyed the great resturants close by and the convienient location to shopping. The location in Punta Gorda gave us easy access to Sarasota where we enjoyed a day at the #1 beach in the USA and witnessed a world class sand sculpting competion. Another day we wondered down to Sanibel Island which is a natural treasure and who could forget a day in Fort Myers at the biggest Flea Market I have ever seen.( my wife is still recovering). We had a totally enjoyable experience with this property and the only negative was having to pack up and leave.

"A beautiful well equipped house that is very tastefully decorated throughout."

One of the best villas we have ever rented. A beautiful well equipped house that is very tastefully decorated throughout. The beds and bedrooms with their en suite/attached bathrooms were extremely comfortable and spacious. The kitchen is well stocked with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans etc., there is plenty of cupboard space. Preparing meals was a pleasure. Both sitting rooms were furnished to a high standard and were exceptionally comfortable. The pool is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The location of the villa is within easy reach of the main highways to Port Charlotte and all points north and south. One of the best holidays ever.

"Stunning Villa !!!!"

This is our second succesive rental from the Chapmans and we have not been disappopinted both times . The Villa is situated in a very beautiful and peaceful area , it is very clean and has all the amenities you need . The lanai is huge with a beautiful pool that overlooks the punta gorda canal system . There are beautiful beaches nearby at Englewood and Boca grande and we have never failed to see manatee or dolphins swimming close to the shore . Overall its a wonderful villa for a relaxing break after the mania of Orlando .

"Villa Rum Cay, a wonderful Gulf Coast get away."

We wanted a 'getaway' location following a few days in Orlando, and this Villa was ideal. The location is very good, near all amenities (unusually it is within easy walking distance of restaurants) but quiet and relaxed. The villa itself is very well appointed and on a lovely canal so ideal for boaters or fishermen.
We received very good information on travel, and local amenities before we arrived.

A very well furnished modern house, ideal for our family vacation.

The Punta Gorda / Port Charlotte area is not hugely endowed with big tourist attractions, but there are lots of boats trips, fishing charters and a few nice smaller attractions - we'd recommend back-bay fishing, trips to the beautiful barrier island beaches.

My family and I had a fantastic stay at villa Rum Cay. the weather was good and the kids loved the pool and fishing on the canal. The villa is well equipped we liked being able to bar-b-que next to the pool. It made a great easter break
