I recently brought my family here to the new Cape Haze Resort and we had two of the best weeks of our life. We enjoyed it so much that I even got my wife's permission to go in on buying a unit here in this new and beautiful gated community. Whether you like to relax and take in all the natural surrounding beauty or are hyper and like to pack in the fun - you will not be disappointed! You are literally only minutes away from the 7 mile Island stretch of Boca Grande (Gasparilla Island) offering wonderful unspoiled beaches shared by homes of some very notable people who like to vacation here like President Bush Sr., Oprah, Martha Stewart and many others. Right down the road in the other direction from Cape Haze you have the quaint Englewood area beaches (Englewood Beach, Blind Pass Beach and Manasota Beach). These beaches offer incredible evening sunsets, shelling and fossil (sharks teeth,etc) hunting opportunities. One mile down the road you can ferry your car (about $55) or yourself/bike ($7) across the water to the secretive and exclusive Palm Island (unparalleled shelling opportunities here... take home some real beauties!). There are lots of areas nearby that are excellent for spotting Dolphin and Manatee - my son and I came within 10 feet of touching one of each while swimming at one of the Boca Grande Beaches. Boating and fishing is absolutely wonderful in this area... you can park your boat or trailer at Cape Haze Resort (just register it, but no fees) and then choose from many nearby places to drop your boat in the water (easy access to the Gulf).
If your timing is right visit the new Charlotte Sports Park where the Tampa Bay Rays Spring Training Camp is held (14 miles down the road). Or try you hand at fishing, Boca Grande is the Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World! About 2 miles down the road from Cape Haze Resort is the 'Placida Fishing Pier' (just beyond where you would turn for the Boca Grande Causeway)... here you can fish off an amazing pier that will surprise you with amazing wildlife above and below the water. And not to forget, I'm told you have 25 wonderful private and public golf courses in Sarasota county and about 12 located in Charlotte county.
We found this to be the perfect place - you are close to plenty (walk next door to a wonderful Italian restaurant) yet perfectly situated in nature between Don Pedro State Park on one side and a roughly 250 acre nature preserve on the other side. Bike, hike or walk the trails. You can even rent a golf cart and follow the seven mile paved bike trails of Boca Grande (beautiful scenery, unspoiled beaches, quaint shops/restaurants) or explore the exclusive Palm Island in the same manner. Relax on your private lanai that overlooks the lake or just doze off by the gorgeous pool while you try to decide if it was an Osprey or an Eagle that just flew over your head (that's what we did).
We looked at a lot of units in the area and found Cape Haze Resort to have the nicest and biggest pool in the area and the property to be loaded with great amenities. You'll love the state-of-the-art fitness center, the incredibly nice clubhouse (free high speed Wi-Fi access with a view of the pool while you work). Surrounding the amazing pool (heated when needed) you have a large hot-tub, tennis courts, basketball court, Volleyball sand court, horse-shoes and grilling out opportunities ... all this fun and more at your fingertips! You are even welcome to make use of our shuffleboard-membership in nearby Port Charlotte at no extra cost. This place is a great place and has plenty to offer everyone of every age. This is definitely the type of place where you will be looking forward to coming back year after year.
As to our elegant 3rd floor NON-SMOKING, 3 bedroom home, it is the most spacious of all the units offered (1272 sq. feet under Air/ not including the 120+ sq.ft lanai). The lanai overlooks the peaceful lake with its invigorating lighted-fountain and intriguing wildlife (not all the units overlook the lake at Cape Haze). The Master bedroom has its own private full bath w/ granite counter tops, king-size bed and a flat screen TV on the dresser (cable channels). Located right next to the second bathroom (also full size shower and tub) is the second bedroom with two twin beds. The third bedroom has a trundle bed that pulls out below where you can sleep a sixth person if need be... The comfortable Living Room has a fluffy couch that reclines on each end encouraging you to just fall asleep while watching the flat screen or listening to the sounds of nature coming from the lake below. The W/D in the home are front-loading for your convenience and enjoy the morning cups of coffee at the little breakfast cafe-table for two by the window (kitchen also has quality granite counter tops). The home has high speed Wi-Fi (wireless) internet access (sometimes off during summer months) allowing you the convenience of not having to run down to the Club House every time you need the internet. All your phone calls are free (local, long distance and to Canada). Also, for your convenience, the front door is equipped with a key-less entry lock so everyone in your party can come and go without having to hunt down the person with the key!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
NOTE TO PROSPECTS: It might be helpful and interesting to note the following general rules of thumb when looking to buy or rent at the Cape Haze Resort ... 1) The higher the home is up off the ground, the more desirable and costly the unit will be (premium prices for third and fourth floors)... 2) A home that is overlooking the lake will rightfully be more desirable and costly and ... 3) needless to say, the number of bedrooms or the more the square footage, the more desirable/costly.
