Punta Gorda Botanical Retreat
I had a great time at this property with friends for my bday. The rooms are large and the kitchen and living space too. The outdoors is the best part. It’s way more beautiful in person. The only downsides were that cleaning could be better (spider webs everywhere on the deck, and dusty countertops) and the location is very remote. You’ll need to drive on a dirt road for 10 minutes. Very difficult to find at night and the GPS somehow routes you to the wrong place.

Punta Gorda Botanical Retreat
Quiet Getaway
Spacious place that could comfortably accommodate 10 people and offers an array of activities. However, the internet isn’t really the best and the cable is pretty spotty, but all said if you even thought about reserving this place, then chances are you were looking to get away anyway.

Punta Gorda Botanical Retreat
Our stay at Punta Gorda was wonderful! Everything is lush, green, and beautiful, even in the winter when we visited. There are so many incredible species of trees, both flowering and fruit-producing. We really enjoyed walking around the property and seeing the variety of plants. There are some wonderful trails around the property, all different and showcasing a bit of natural Florida. There are three ponds on the property which are stunning, and each has a picnic table and a nice path for campers to go out and enjoy the great weather and beautiful views. The house is clean and spacious. We loved how much room there was to spread out, perfect for either a group of campers or just two, like us. We wish we could have stayed longer, there's so much beauty to soak up!
