Property description

This beautiful luxury waterfront villa is perfect for a relaxing holiday, with its amazing outlook and great access either by car or by boat. The villa's heated 28ft pool, with jacuzzi, has a fabulous view over a cross-junction of canals, and the peaceful location is great for fishing and watching the wildlife go by. We have seen manatee, bobcats, dolphins, armadillos, possums, raccoons and the occasional alligator. You're welcome to bring your own boat - there is a public boat launch just a few minutes from the house, and you can tie up at our boat dock. The pool area has a large lanai, plenty of room for lounging, and a gas barbecue.
There are two living areas, three bedrooms - two with en-suite bathrooms, and a den which is either a bedroom or a TV room. The family room has a quality piano. There are 4 TV's (all HD) with individual programming, and a wireless router for internet access.
This superb luxury villa has everything you need for a fabulous holiday or for an ideal longer term rental.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Cove:
We owned a vacation rental in Kissimmee, Florida from 1992. We wanted to move to the Gulf Coast, and spent two years looking for the right area, and the right piece of land on which to build. Having looked at hundreds of plots, found with internet searches, we came across this plot purely by accident - we saw the 'For sale by owner' sign as we drove by. 5 minutes later, we had decided to buy it, which we did in early 2002. The house plan was based on a show house from the best local builder, but modified to our specification (providing a second en-suite and larger 2nd and 3rd bedrooms, amongst other changes). It was completed in 2005. We have never regretted our 5-minute decision, and anyone who goes to the house understands why!
