About Jennifer Swearingen

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.

Jennifer Swearingen purchased this house in 2008

Why Jennifer Swearingen chose South Gulf Cove

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Quiet neighborhood, clean and cozy property, good amenities

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had an incredible week long stay at this property. The house was big enough for all of us, had many things for us to use and was very clean. It's a bit of a drive to anywhere but that's both a pro and a con. A pro because it was a quiet week back in a cute subdivision, but a con because it took us a while to get anywhere. The pool and lanai were beautiful, though the filter wasn't working the best. There is a lot to do in the area and everything is affordable. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this area and property for a family or group of friends!

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

The house was spotless! Comfortable furniture and nicely stocked supplies. Wonderfully relaxing spa and pool. The only down side was the Red Tide that stopped us from going to the nearby beaches. Would definitely stay again.

Nice

  • 4 of 5

When we got there the pool was green the kids were a little disappointed. It took 3 days for it to clear up that was sad. The house itself was very nice.

Gorgeous home, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The home was in perfect order with high quality furnishings, comfy furniture and very clean. The pool and view are phenomenal. The 1 neighbor was hardly noticed. Our family has travelled and stayed in many beautiful places, but this home is our new top pick. The location is close enough to some activities 4 those who wish to venture out more than we did. We simply chose not to miss any more time in the paradise found within the property itself. Communication with the owner was great.

Super House

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house, lots of space for the 8 of us who stayed there. The private pool was awesome. Love the house wide sound system. Saw an alligator in the canal on our last night there! Would definitely stay again.

Amazing house that was everything we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped inside the house, until we locked the front door behind us and left, we felt at home and taken care of. The house itself is beautifully laid out, with easy to use AC, huge kitchen, massive sliding doors, tons of sunlight, etc. Master bedroom is spectacular, with sliding doors leading poolside. The other bedrooms are great as well, with tons of space for clothing and some children's toys in the closet (which we quickly availed of). The pool is fantastic and there's a hot tub too! Easy to use heat/jet/waterfall controls made it enjoyable for hours of fun every day. There are two bathrooms in the house, and one outside by the pool, so you don't even have to walk inside when you need a restroom while swimming. The garage is stocked with not just pool toys, but lawn chairs and even fishing rods, because yes, this house is located on the canal with a cute private wharf. Also, there's a gas grill perfect for cooking up steaks and hot dogs by the pool. The neighborhood itself is very secluded and quiet, perfect for people looking to get away and relax. But it's just a short drive to all the amenities you'd need (food, gas, shopping, etc.) and there are some really fun restaurants close by. And of course, the beaches are just a short drive away as well. All in all this is an amazing rental and really added a lot to our trip - so much so that we are considering doing it all again!
