              • Hi Barry, Please note this quote we have sent to your Web Site! 'We have stayed at many houses, in almost every area in Florida, but we have never enjoyed a house, or should I say home, that can match the standard of Heron View. The view is unsurpassable, the solitude a needed blessing after TOO many 'park days.' You will not be disappointed if you want the weather of choice, the pool you wish for, the view you envy, and the privacy you deserve.' End quote! Possibly a bit OTT, but it's your house... You know what I mean... Feel free to use this quote, and please feel free to use me as a character/home reference. (Name & EMail address withheld) Looking forward to staying again next year. (NOW BOOKED FOR AUGUST 2011) All the best, Andy UK. (17/11/10) ...moreless

                      This large, luxurious villa is on the beautiful Cape Haze peninsular. On the South West Gulf Coast, between Venice, Cape Coral and Sanibel Island. It is only 40 miles north of Fort Myers and SWF International airport. It lies within the South Gulf Cove Nature Reserve. Just 15 miles south west of Port Charlotte city. 10 miles south east of Englewood and 8 miles north of Boca Grande. I-75 north or south is a 20 minutes drive away. Full driving directions from all Florida airports will be provided by us.

                      South Gulf Cove is mainly a rural community. Most homes like ours, are on Deep water as this area is very close to the access for Port Charlotte Harbour, Myakka and Peace Rivers and the Gulf of Mexico.

                      Enjoy all types of fresh and salt water fishing, sailing/boating and the wonderful wildlife. But best of all, this area is known for it's beautiful Sugar sand beaches, it's warm, clean, clear and safe waters and the interesting and gorgeous shells and sharks teeth that can be found along this beautiful coast.

                      Golf: There are 8 great Golf courses, all within a 30 minutes drive, 70 within a 20 mile radius! They include a floodlit, 24 hour course just 6 miles away. All courses welcome children over 8, and hire out all equipment.

                      All local information on Golf courses, beaches, restaurants, shops etc., are listed in our villa manual.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Hello holiday seekers, thank you for viewing our villa. Linda and I are from Oxfordshire, England. We have been coming to Florida, with our children since the early 80's. It was then, when the kids were small that we discovered and fell in love with Florida's Gulf Coast with it's beautifully clean 'sugar sand' beaches. The clear, clean, safe, warm gulf waters and all the wonderful wildlife that is all around you to marvel at and enjoy. All this and only a few hours from Disney of the Everglades.

                      Why the Owner Chose Port Charlotte:
                      When we retired, we wanted our holiday home to be in this un spoilt part of the South West Gulf Coast. Which, unlike most of the Florida coast line, it is not built up. It still retains that 'old world charm' that Florida had and is now mainly lost in places like Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples. Come and see for yourselves!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Being within the South Gulf Cove Nature Reserve, you are privileged to see Florida's wonderful wildlife all around you. I have sat on the lanai and seen a Sea Eagle fly down and pick a fish out of the water just 30 feet in front of me. We have a 5 foot Gator, who regally visits our canal and will lay on the surface, he never comes close, just watching you fish from the dock. We have hired kayaks and spent hours sailing around the reserve, fishing, crabbing and bird spotting. This is the REAL Florida. There is not a lot left so we feel very lucky to own part of it!
