Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We currently live on Grand Lake in northeast Oklahoma and have been blessed with friends and neighbors that are more like family. We've come to cherish them dearly and love the excitement that lake life provides! On the other hand, there is something so peaceful about listening to the waves roll in/out along the beach that seems to carry all your troubles away. While visiting Florida in 2012, we instantly fell in love with this area and knew we wanted to be a part of it! We are thrilled to be able to share our home with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose South Gulf Cove (Port Charlotte, FL, USA):
When we first walked into this house, we knew we found our dream home. Its secluded far enough from the hectic city life to enjoy the peace and tranquility, yet close enough to enjoy a wide variety of activities and dining. Plus the nice sized yard means the neighbors aren't right on top of you, so you're afforded some privacy if sitting outdoors. It's the best of both worlds!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The nearby beaches are beautiful and offer everything from shelling, to quiet walks, to fishing. Golfers have a choice of several courses to play. Plus, you are close to both Sarasota and Fort Myers for dining, shopping, shows, theater, and events. Day excursions, nature preserves, island hopping, walking/biking trails are also just minutes away.
