A piece of paradise is awaiting you in this private scenic setting between Sarasota and Ft. Myers. Our 2000 square foot 3 bedroom 2.5 bath beauty is situated on an amazing saltwater canal with gulf access through Charlotte Harbor. The magnificent home was built in 2003, with 12 foot ceilings, many upgrades and comes newly furnished.
Enjoy beautiful sunrises overlooking the canal via the enclosed lanai or sit on your own private dock. Once finished with the morning sun, you can take a dip in the heated pool or spa. You can also try your hand at fishing in the canal.
Then, head inside and enjoy your two splendid sitting areas both with their own plasma TV's and DVD players. Also, you can relax anywhere in the house while you use the wireless internet and surround sound system.
The house comes complete with a master suite that includes a king bed, walk in closet, soaking tub and a marvelous Roman shower. There are also two other wonderful bedrooms that have queen beds.

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 South Gulf Cove (Port Charlotte, FL, USA):
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!
