    The hosts are a nice lovely couple. Very welcoming and helpful. They gave us many tips for places to go in the area. We took our bikes and went to the beach. Nearby the beach is a community pool which is heated, has hot showers and lifeguards. Entry for a day is $3. Spot was great, leveled and easily accessable. If you're in Port Charlotte, definitely reserve your spot at Florida Shack!
