Charlotte Harbor 3 bedroom canal home in a very quiet neighborhood. Beach and community pool are 4 blocks away, as is shopping. Dock on ocean acess canal, boat house, and hot tub in private rear yard. There is a full laundry, and a large screened lanai. Cocktails are served on the dock at sunset. Access to I-75 in 10 min. Miami is 2.5 hrs., Tampa is 1.5 hours, Orlando is 2 hours. Famous Sanibel and Captiva are across the bay. There is good flats fishing, and tarpon in season. There are miles of quiet beaches for shelling, and miles of parks for wildlife exploring. This is a seasonal vacation area with good restaurants and entertainment, but is genrally quiet and not congested. The house is fully equiped, but simple, as we like it. There is a Chevrolet Suburban SUV, two old bikes, and some small boats and water toys. I usually rent the house for the winter if not traded, so check your winter months needs early. I am retired, live alone, have no pets, and travel extensively.
Charlotte Harbor is a very quiet neighborhood made private by extensive tropical planting. Seldom see neighbors, as many are seasonal. There has never been any crime here, and I have lived here for 40 years. You can walk or bike the four blocks to the beach or shopping. There are cabs and a jitny bus on request. Great seafood restaurants, and fresh seafood from the shrimping center.
