Photos and Description of this Burnt Store Marina holiday condo

Condominium, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-5)

New 50" "smart", flat screen TV!!! Lovely new living area decor featuring white leather sofas. Wi/Fi in the unit. Charming art throughout. This fine resort is in a gated community called Burnt Store Marina. You can walk, bike or toodle around in golf carts in the pedestrian/bike friendly community. There are two yacht basins, with this property on one of them. This marina is the gateway to the gulf and the islands of Sanibel, Captiva and Useppa. You can charter a boat for personal sailing or go aboard the charter boat to islands where you can hike, camp, go shelling or eat at great funky and fun restaurants such as Cabbage Key. Pine Island is a short drive from your condominium with numerous waterfront, seafood restaurants. For day trips, you can visit Sarasota (great art museums, shopping, Ringling Brothers, etc.) and further to the north Tampa, the home of Busch Gardens. It's only a two and one-half hour drive over Alligator Alley (Hwy.75)to Ft. Lauderdale or northeast to Orlando.

Golf and Fitness Center: You may use the golf and fitness center for daily fees. Eighteen hole golf course on site! Fitness center and tennis courts a few blocks away.

Boat Chartering and Boat Slips Available: You can charter your own boat right here at the marina or take a group boat to nearby islands. More opportunities in Punta Gorda, as well! Just go to Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda. You may be able to reserve a boat slip right outside your door for your own boat. Some of our guests bring there own boat & store it in nearby storage area and then can rent a slip probably right outside your door! How cool is that!!??

Deep sea and local fishing Available: Fish right off the seawalls! Or go out on a day charter for deep sea fishing. Great local fishing in Charlotte Harbor. This is one of the best fishing areas in the country. Tarpon is KING!! There is grouper, Kingfish, etc., etc.

About Gay Weekes

Your hosts are Tom and Gay Weekes who live locally in Punta Gorda Isles. We manage this property ourselves so we are available should you need anything. We lived in Harbor Towers ourselves when we moved to Punta Gorda permanently in 2001. We therefore, invested money in upgrades, such as high end stove/microwave/convection; 18' tile laid on the diagonal, some custom features that improved the model, extra insulation on MBR wall for sound insulation, bull nose corners, etc. We take a good deal of pride in maintaing the unit and someday may move back in!! We enjoy vactioning there ourselves on occasion with our family & we moor our boat outside for a fun family time. We love the marina and know you will too. We are both realtors for Keller Williams Realty in Punta Gorda; if you ever have any questions re: properties, don't hesitate to call. We are avid boaters in the region and love what it has to offer.

We have two adorable Bichons that we take almost everywhere, so we are pet friendly. We moved here from Telluride, CO and also lived in Thousand Oaks, CA prior to that. We love to travel and like you! Please come and be our guests in our lovely condo!!

Gay Weekes purchased this condo in 2000

Why Gay Weekes chose Florida

We fell in love w/ Burnt Store Marina and at one time owned two condos there. We spent some time at them prior to moving here full time. We loved the view at the Harbor Towers and thought the building was absolutely to mention the tropical pool by the marina.

What makes this condo unique

Miles and miles of pedestrian, golf cart, bike trails. Fishing right there. Updated modern kitchen for all your gourmet needs. Deli on sight and two restaurants. Quiet and charming.A must is whiling away the time on the deck watching Manatees play!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been guests at the Weekes Harbor Towers condo and would like to give a very high recommendation to future guests. When we arrived we were “stunned” by the magnificent view that words cannot describe. The condo was tastefully furnished and VERY clean which met our standards there. Burnt Store Marina is a marvelous place to vacation with lots of amenities. We were so delighted to watch Manatees playing frequently from our tropical lanai in the marina below. In fact, we were so delighted that we purchased the condo next door with the help of the Weekes (who are realtors) and now that tropical dream is now our PARADISE!! You will love the condo & the area and we may be your neighbors!!

Best regards,

Richard and Nancy Johnson

The Way Life Ought To Be!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a two week stay at Burnt Store Marina. This gated complex is terrific and homey. It is a lovely and friendly community. A great place to unwind and escape the miserable Northeast winter. As for the condo and the 7th floor of the Harbor Towers, it met all our expectations. As we have family at Burnt Store, we knew exactly what was in store. The Towers are clean and very well maintained. This condo has a gorgeous view overlooking the marina, the gulf and the sunny horizon. We spent any time in the condo on the balcony taking in the views, reading, playing cribbage or pursuing any other excuse to laze outside. The condo was very quiet; I wasn't aware of other guests in the Towers. The ammenities in the area are plentiful.

The condo owners were terrific to deal with. They were very patient with my many, many inquiries as this was my first time renting through VRBO. The rental went without a hitch. In a word, they were completely trustworthy (and this is top priority when planning a getaway). I would not hesitate to stay at this condo again and offer ringing endorsements for the owners. As for the condo per se, it was clean, well maintained and replete with the comforts of home.

You can't go wrong visiting Burnt Store, staying at this condo and dealing with the owners. If life goes according to schedule, we will return next year!

Just a quick note on the golf. I am a "golfing snob" playing at beautiful 18 hole courses. These three 9 hole courses are executive courses. The Heron and Pelican courses are lovely; the Osprey course is marginal. We walked 9 holes every afternoon. I was able to take my wife and kids out to the courses and they had a great time. The courses aren't Pebble Beach but they were great for the family and the kids never tired of seeing the alligators. I was happy to use the time to work on my short game and you couldn't beat the price.

Wonderful View and Pool Access

  • 5 of 5

We rented the condo for our son and family. The unit was nicely furnished and comfortable, with a good assortment of towels, blankets, and appliances. The view from the 7th floor is amazing and they spent many hours on the lanai taking in the sites of the marina. The unit has access to the pool and hot tub on the property.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying in Burnt Store Marina. It was so relaxing and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The condo was absolutely beautiful! Right when we walked in, the view of the harbor took our breath away! Every evening I enjoyed sitting on the lanai with my glass of wine and watching the boats. I saw a review that the condo was not clean. However, that was not the case...the condo was immaculate! We would definitely stay there again. But for now, back to reality.

Stay at the Weekes Burnt Store condo in January 2013

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at the Weekes Harbor Towers condo in January of 2013. We would like to give a very high recommendation to future guests. The view from the condo was wonderful and we could see the manatees in the marina below. The condo was very nicely furnished and very clean and quiet. Everything was in good working order and the owners were available for any questions. You will like the condo & the area. We would stay there again. It was a great getaway from the cold winter up north.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this Burnt Store condo for the month of October, 2013. Our experience throughout the whole process from renting the unit, and our stay for the month could not have been better. The owners were friendly, a pleasure to work with and helpful in every way. The condo is exceptional in every way. It had everything we needed for our stay for the month. It was clean, extremely well furnished and very comfortable. We knew we were in the right place the moment we opened the front door and stepped inside. The condo is great, the view is spectacular. We will definitely consider this unit for future visits, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place at Burnt Store Marina.
