Our Promise
There are a lot of vacation homes on the Gulf Coast.  Some are big and fancy, some are small and quaint. At Idle Days we think our home is "just the right size.  Not too big and not too small, providing plenty of room for you to spread out and be comfortable and still  be on the water, without the high prices of a huge, ocean front villa. We continually strive  to make Idle Days the best vacation rental value in our price range.  We have hired the best people to care for our home when we aren't there. They share our passion in making your vacation one of the best.  “Good enough” is just not an option for us.

We genuinely care about our guests and strive to go above and beyond to provide the best experience you can have.
We are always looking to improve  your vacation experience. If you have ideas how we can make your stay better, we’d love to hear from you.

Your Hosts: Ron and Sharie Holben.  We live in Sturgis Michigan and are semi retired from the drinking water and water well industry.   For 7 years we had a vacation home in Wawa, Ontario Canada.  About 4 hours north of Michigan's upper peninsula.  We had 200' of pristine lakefront, sandy beach and clear water.  We were entirely off the grid, no power, no phone no Internet.  Ah paradise.

In the spring of 2013 we decided it was time for a change.  We sold the cabin and the search began for the perfect  southern vacation home.  We looked in Florida along with several other States,  We decided on Port Charlotte for it's proximity to the gulf, all the activities in the area, and terrific weather year round.  The bonus was having restaurants and shopping so close and amazing neighbors, in an extremely quiet residential neighborhood.

We have just started to discover all the area has to offer. We hope you will fall in love with Port Charlotte and the Gulf Islands, as we did and enjoy exploring the uncrowded beaches, quaint shops and excellent dining.
