My husband and I spent 10 glorious days at the Tropical Paradise Bed & Breakfast. Joanne and Clift were very accommodating hosts. Their Breakfasts were out of this world! The grounds were very tropical and their pool very refreshing. One couldn't beat the price of the room. We look forward to vacationing next year where we will be sure to stay once again at Tropical Paradise!

We stayed with Joanne and Cliff for 3 days and absolutely loved it! They were friendly and accommodating and made us feel like part of their family. Our room was perfect and the breakfast was outstanding. We go to the Port Charlotte area every year and this will be the only place we will stay.

We stayed for 12 days. It is a relatively secluded area (much less busy than the Sarasota or Fort Myers areas), with up-to-date facilities, a comfortable room, an attractive screened-in pool area, and beautiful waterway views. Joanne and Clift were helpful and friendly. We came and went with no fuss and no problems. Clift served big breakfasts every day at about 8:30. Most of these were very good (make sure he makes his pecan French toast, which is something like bread pudding). One suggestion would be that he let the guests know what he is planning (currently he only decides either late the night before or the morning itself). This would allow modest adjustments to suit specific tastes, particularly when only one set of guests is present. Having said this, I should add that Clift and Joanne were good at making certain accommodations, such as providing fruit, yogurt, coffee, etc. for us to make our own breakfast on those days when we left early. We're birders and this was an excellent area for birding. Also the area has a surprising number of good restaurants nearby, and not just in Punta Gorda. It's not every B&B that you can be comfortable in for a long stay; this is definitely one of them.

My wife and I stayed here on vacation for a week. We enjoyed our time here. Joanne and Cliff are very accomadating hosts. We enjoy breakfast and the breakfast served every day was very good usually something different each day. We also got there early as we had an early flight and they were able to accomadate our early arrival If you you are in the Port Charlotte area we would recommend this place. Prices are reasonable as well . Place is quiet and is in a quit area close to the main areas of the town. Bob & Linnae, Pennsylvania.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband. It was our first getaway in a very long time. We were excited to leave our children behind and have some quiet time. It was our first BnB and we loved it. We were welcomed and felt right at home. Our bedroom was beautiful and the bathroom was filled with bubble bath, soap, shampoo etc. The jet tub is huge and so is the shower. The house is pristine.The area is serene and overlooking the water. We had breakfast every morning with another couple. It was nice chatting over breakfast. We will definitely go again this year to see Clift and Joanne. We came as strangers and left as friends.

My wife and I stayed at Island paradise for two nights and greatly enjoyed our little get away. The room and common areas were very clean and made you feel at home. The hosts were very helpful, they offered advise on site seeing and dinning as well as providing fresh breakfast every morning. We definitely recommend their bed and breakfast as the place to stay if ever visiting Port Charlotte.

Joanne and Cliff are the perfect pair for hosts. Joanne does a great job with the hospitality and the cooking and Cliff will never steer you wrong. Cliff knows all the right spots for things to do and has some pretty good stories to go along with them. Joanne is just a sweetheart and provides a wonderful fresh breakfast. You will fell at home here in Port Charlotte, which is close to lots of things to do (it's a sheller's paradise) but also provides a nice quiet retreat.

We stayed at the Tropical Paradise in March 2015 with another couple and the name of this B&B certainly fits. This truly is a tropical paradise. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, the breakfasts delicious and the grounds are breathtaking.Cliff and Joanne are great hosts and helped us with local attractions. - Jim & Karen Doyle - Canada

My husband and I recently spent two nights at Tropical Paradise B&B. Joanne and Cliff made us feel right at home from the time we walked in their front door. The breakfast was awesome and the atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing. We will absolutely return for a visit!!!

This is our second year at Tropical Island B&B and we just love it! The view out back from the lanai is just fantastic! The hosts Joanne and Clift make you feel at home from the time that you walk through the front door until you leave. One could not ask for more and it's an easy hours drive from the Southwest Regional airport.

Five perfect days in the perfect B&B. Comfortable beds, Charming room, Joann and Cliff are very welcoming. Excellent breakfasts. The house is in a quiet residential cul-de-sac overlooking the water. This is such a relaxing place. We were so lucky to have found the Tropical Paradise - would recommend it without hesitation.

For our 30th anniversary in December, my wife and I enjoyed a two week vacation in southwest Florida. Among the places we decided to stayed was the Tropical Paradise Bed & Breakfast, and I am so glad we did. The location was beautiful and peaceful; the accommodations were great; the breakfasts were delicious; and the hosts were (are) wonderful people. Thank you Clift and Joanne for sharing your home with us. May God bless you (and your family).

July 2014. We just spent four glorious days at Tropical Paradise B&B. This was our favorite out of all the B&Bs where we have stayed. Joanne was so kind to us, and a great breakfast maker. She went out of her way to accommedate us. The rooms, the pool, the view, were all top notch. Kudos and many thanks. Francine & Joe

We live within an hour drive and it was worth to come and stay for a nice weekend away. Beautiful canal behind the house, and plenty of places to kayak around the area. The hosts were very sweet and offered a basket full of guides of the area. Breakfast was fantastic, and definitely left full!

I am gluten free and they prepared a delicious breakfast that I could eat. The hosts were friendly and very accommodating. They recommended several eating places and the one we choose was a lot of fun.

This was our first stay in a B&B and it was such a wonderful experience that we will definitely do it again. The house is located on the curve of a canal which gives 270 degree views of the waterway. There is a screened patio and heated pool overlooking the water, which is open to guests. Our hosts, Clift and Joanne made us welcome to use this lanai, the dining room, and living room, and gave us the privacy to do so. We stayed in the suite which had a large, beautifully appointed bedroom and a connected bath that was to die for! It was huge, with a jetted tub, large shower, giant mirrors, counters, and double sinks. The house and grounds were truly picture-perfect. The breakfasts were delicious and varied every day, with fresh fruit salad, yogurt with granola, and an entrée. Joanne and Clift were the most gracious hosts, sharing information, suggestions, and stories along with the breakfast. So much nicer than staying in a hotel - more personal and welcoming. We were in Port Charlotte for a spring baseball tournament and the location was perfect. Not too far from the fields but in a quiet, homey neighborhood. I sincerely hope to be able to repeat the experience again next year.

We stayed at Tropical Paradise for a week in February, had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before and what a great experience it was for us! Were down to house hunt for a future place to retire. Location was perfect easy access to everywhere you wanted to go. Joanne and Cliff were wonderful hosts and very informative for our house hunting excursions, we felt like we had become family by the end of our trip and sorry we had to leave. Told my parents about our experience and they are wanting to call for availability in March!

We stayed here over the summer and loved it. The location is great, on the water with great boating and fishing. There is access to Charlotte Harbor by boat. Nice quiet location. The breakfast was wonderful, fresh fruit and a new cooked dish everyday. This is a great location to explore the SW coast of Florida. We went to Venice, Sanibel Island, Fort Myers and Manasota Key. All were within 1 hour drive. Wonderful experience, thanks!

This was a very beautiful home. I was in North Port fir 4 days for work and decided to stay at a bed and breakfast rather than a crummy hotel. Best decision!!! Joanne and Cliff were perfect hosts and the breakfast was amazing. I would recommend staying here for everyone traveling to the area.

The waterfront views from the Tropical Paradise B&B are beautiful. It had a great pool to relax in after a long day. It was too cold to swim when we stayed, but we enjoyed the area none the less watching an approaching storm. Our hosts (Joanne and Clift) were more than gracious, fun to chat with, and served an amazing breakfast each morning. One morning we had eggs benedict! The location was perfect considering we were visiting family in the Punta Gorda area.

Joanne & Cliff are great hosts. Exceeded our expectations in every respect...cleanliness, location, advice, humor, service, etc. Loved Cliff's stories and his shorts. We strongly recommend Tropical Paradise Bed & Breakfast

My sister and I stayed at Tropical Paradise a month ago, and I'm still thinking about my experience there. The owners, Joanne and Clift, make a guest feel like family. Lovely, down to Earth folks, with a knack for hospitality. The breakfasts were filling, beautifully presented and thoughtfully prepared. My room was immaculate and very private. I couldn't get enough of the fragrant Jasmine growing all over. I look forward to staying there again someday and being welcomed with open arms. Thanks a million! Alexis B.
Hi Alexis, We remember your visit as well and how you enjoyed with us the beautiful fragrance of the Jasmine on the warm night air. I am one of fives sisters and vicariously enjoyed your sisters "get away". Do come back and visit us again. We would love to see you.

My sister and I were very pleased with our recent stay in April, 2013. The home is in a beautiful and quiet location, the hosts, Joanne and Clift, gracious and kind, and the breakfast delicious and enough you do not need lunch. This truly is a tropical paradise and I would highly recommend it.
We're so pleased when our guests say that they've enjoyed being guests here in our Tropical Paradise. I especially appreciated seeing you and your sister having this fun time together. It made me long for a "get away" with my sisters. Thank you so much. We would love to see you again, here in our little oasis.

Thank you sharing your little corner of paradise with us for several days. Your home is beautifully situated on a quiet waterway, blessed with extraordinary sunsets, and immaculately clean! Each morning began with a breakfast that was healthful, delicious, and served with the kind of warm hospitality that's so rare in today's hectic travel world. Your home was a perfect jumping off spot for day trips to Southwest Florida's many historical and natural sights...(guests need to allow enough time to return to your beautiful lanai to experience those extraordinary sunsets!) We cannot recommend your beautiful bed and breakfast highly enough to other travelers, and we will look forward to enjoyoing your hospitality again in the future! All the best! B and G
Thank you B&G for your kind review. We remember your visit and enjoyed our chats each day. We do hope that you will return as we would love to see you again. Joanne & Clift

My husband and I visited in February of this year. We were treated most cordially and had a wonderful stay. The sunset cruise was perfect. Our room was comfortable and immaculate. Breakfast was awesome...delicious and filling. We didn't even need lunch. Clift and Joanne were wonderful hosts.
You must be Betty. We remember so fondly your visit as well as Elizabeth and all the others. We too feel as though you are family. The "sing a long" touched my heart as I have many memories of my mother, "Elizabeth" who used to play while we all sang. Please come back & see us.
