Why Ken and Jennifer Domke chose South Gulf Cove

We fell in love with this part of Florida, while visiting family and friends in the area.

What makes this villa unique

The weather is wonderful. We love both the sunshine and the rain storms. The fishing is tremendous and we have access directly to the ocean. Wildlife abounds. We love to listen to the wildlife at night with the wall sliding glass open to the lanai, and the evening air. It is very quiet and animal life in the yard and area abounds.

Great quite base for 8 people and exploring the area.

  • 5 of 5

We are two family's with 4 kids who had just had a busy 8 days travelling. New York, Key West, Marathon Key and the Everglades.

We were after a comfortable base for some R+R. This was a perfect quality villa, well furnishing and clean. We used the kayaks on the canal at the back of the house and the bikes. The pool was the centre of entertainment for the kids and we had a couple of great barbies.

During the days we went paddle boarding, jey skiing and kayaking as well as visiting the bush gardens water park. The rest of the time was on the local beaches.

The only draw back is it is a 15minute drive to anything, which was not an issue for us.

Great villa and would definatly use again if I'm in the area.

This was a beautiful property. It was well maintained and private.

  • 5 of 5

The home was amazing. We were very impressed with our stay here. Jennifer always addressed any questions or issues we had promptly. The property is well maintained and landscaped. It was very comfortable and private. I would love to have a home as nice as this. The layout let all of us still have space for ourselves and great gathering areas also. Absolutely will try to rent again. Thank you Jennifer.

Fabulous vacation away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Jennifer were very easy to work with. We had a small issue getting into the house but that was quickly taken care of with a quick phone call. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is very beautiful, very clean, very spacious, and has everything you could need on site. You really only need to bring your clothes, everything else is available at your fingertips. We had 2 couples with 2 children each and the house was plenty big for everyone. The outside pool/patio area is fabulous and the kids had a blast swimming all week. We took advantage of the kayak available and explored the surrounding canals a couple times.

It was extremely peaceful here. You very rarely heard a car and the only noise in the evenings was the crickets chirping. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place for you. Would definitely stay here again.

Great Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a golf trip. We were four ladies who each had their own bedroom. The house is well maintained and has lots of dishes, pots, pans, etc. The temperature in the pool was just right. Golf courses we liked were Heron Creek, Boca Royale, Myakka Pines and Capri Isles. Shopping mall was within 20 minute drive. Publix was within 5 minute drive.

Most Relaxing Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent rental property. There were 4 adults and 5 children (ages 12-16). We are 2 families that have taken spring break together for the last 8 years. This was by far our best vacation and vacation rental. The house was spacious and was built with detail and high end amenities. The 3 huge patio doors were awesome, creating an indoor outdoor feel to the home. It was purely tropical being able to wake up to the sounds of birds and rustling palm trees. The location of this rental was very private. We spent a lot of time in the pool and hot tub, pool was 80 degrees and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed the kayak as well as riding the bikes that were provided. Blind pass was about 15 minutes away. It was a great beach and not overcrowded. We spent hours of shelling and searching for sharks teeth (we found lots and lots of sharks teeth). We spent 1 day at Mayakka River State Park, very beautiful and well worth the 50 minute drive. Thank you Domke's for the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home!
