Gulf Cove villa 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 (2 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.
