There are still a few undiscovered paradises in Florida that awaits visitors to bask in its beauty. Places like Punta Gorda, nestled between Sarasota and Cape Coral, where as you reach the bridge that spans Charlotte Harbor, the view takes your breath away. Punta Gorda is a place where sailboats abound, and recreational fishermen bask in the delight of their abundant catches.

We have private boat ramp and docks. We offer shore power and security lighting and an area to park your boat trailer while staying here at the resort.
