If you are looking for peace and quiet as well as a little bit of paradise for your vacation getaway, then I would highly recommend this gorgeous home. The minute we walked in and saw the spacious rooms and the outdoor pool was enough to win us over. The view from the screened in lanai with the towering palm trees, pretty foliage,and the canal with the fish jumping in it was so amazing! There are plenty of great places to eat at by just taking a short drive into some of the surrounding towns. What we loved especially were the restaurants that were by the ocean and we were content to sit and look at the waves rolling in and the seagulls walking and looking for food. If you are tired of the tourist traps and ready to slow down and enjoy a relaxing vacation this is the place to visit. We also had plenty to keep us occupied since we decided to go shopping and sightseeing. Traveling to Boca Grande which was only 6 miles away to walk on the beach was so much fun too. We saw nine stingrays swimming by the shore, some crabs, and a dolphin that morning. It was so peaceful. Thanks for sharing your home. Can not wait to come back next year with our group!

My husband and I stayed here for two months and could not have been more pleased. Spacious, clean house in a very quiet location. Took owner's recommendations for restaurants and were not disappointed. Bald eagle nearby everyday and saw an alligator in the canal. Just wish I had a bicycle!! Will return next year !

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We are a group of friends who chose to purchase a property in one of our favorite destinations. South Gulf Cove is close enough to area amenities, but secluded enough to call "your private piece of paradise." Area amenities include great golfing, tennis, shopping, fine dining, entertainment and more are all close at hand. Residents also enjoy fun in the sun at nearby Englewood Beach or the secluded Boca Grande for swimming, shelling, sunning, picnics, jet skiing and all other outdoor activities.
Why the Owner Chose Port Charlotte:
The Cape Haze Peninsula has some of the most pristine beaches that Florida has to offer - without the overcrowding. The Peninsula has no high rises, friendly locals, family owned restaurants and low traffic; this is "Old Florida." We decided to buy in the South Gulf Cove area because it is centrally located to the beaches, restaurants, golf courses and shopping. There are numerous activities within a 10-15 minute drive (7 golf courses, parks, beaches, shopping, arcades). South Gulf Cove is also a short drive to Sarasota and Ft. Myers; so you are never more than 30-45 minutes away from an airport.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the main aspects of our property that we enjoy is the overall privacy you receive when at the property. With only one neighbor, you don't have to worry about noise or interruptions; but you can drive five miles and be at a grocery store/gas station/restaurant or fast food. Being on a gulf access canal, you can rent a boat and have access to the canals, rivers and the Gulf of Mexico. This area is known for being the Snook and Tarpon capital of the world - so make sure to bring your fishing gear! You can even fish right off the back of the property on your private dock. We have stocked the property for long and short stays. You don't have to worry about bringing linens, utensils or pool toys - they are all there for you. You can also sleep peacefully; we provide ADT security for the property. The pool and hot tub provide a wonderful place to escape and relax. You will find that you won't want to leave the property once you arrive!
