About the Property
Three-bedrooms Plus Den, Three Baths, Relaxation At Its Finest!
We built an awesome home in a fantastic setting and we want to share it with you. Upon your arrival, you'll know that you're in for a treat. A brick paver driveway and walkway lead to an inviting glass double door. Upon entering that door, the welcoming entryway opens up to the spacious great room and its soaring coffered ceiling. The great room is also open to a spectacular kitchen and dining area. You'll enjoy the view of the fully screened brick paver lanai, heated pool, and spa. Zero corner sliders in the great room and dining room disappear to completely open the living area up to the lanai. This sensational feature allows for the perfect blending of outdoor and indoor living. The beautiful pool is 13x26 and includes a sunshelf that is ideal for sunning and for the little ones. The home offers three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, plus a den with a queen-sized sofa sleeper. With tasteful 18x18 tile floors extending throughout the home, exquisite granite countertops in the kitchen, all bathrooms, and even the laundry room, the zero corner sliders, three beautiful coffered ceilings, and the saltwater pool and spa, this is the ideal Florida lifestyle experience!
The house is beautiful!
The home is set on a southern exposure lot so you'll get plenty of that famous Florida sun. We recently added an 8 by 16 foot dock so you can secure your boat or enjoy fishing right out the back door! The canal we're on is a short boat ride away from the river and Charlotte Harbor, which leads directly into the Gulf of Mexico.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere are within a 30 minute drive. Shelling, swimming, sunning, and shark tooth collecting are all fun and relaxing.
If you're a golfer, you will find many fantastic courses, also within 30 minutes. Four championship courses are nearby, and there's one that offers 24-hour tee times using floodlights! They all rent equipment and players of all ages are welcome.
For fishermen, you can indulge your passion right in the backyard, rent a boat for more serious sessions, or go on one of the many area daily charters.
Restaurants abound, and several great alternatives are nearby. We'll be happy to give you our recommendations, and there's a list of some of our favorites in the house.
For the shopper, Port Charlotte has all of the recognized name stores, plus local specialty shops. Nearby Punta Gorda is another source for great shopping alternatives. A large Publix grocery store (great key lime pie!) is five minutes away, as are gasoline stations and other shopping.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We've both been Midwesterners our whole lives, but we've loved the chances we've had to travel. Florida has always been a favorite destination. Kristen has worked in libraries for many years, and is currently employed in the library of our city's medical school. Ken owns and operates a real estate service business that helps investors minimize tax liabilities. We discovered when our kids were very little that we really enjoyed Florida. We have traveled to several locations in the state over the years, but we truly love the Gulf Coast. If you haven't been to the Ft. Myers/Sarasota area before, you're in for a treat. And if you have been here in the past, you know what we mean!
Why the Owner Chose South Gulf Cove (Port Charlotte, FL, USA):
A few years ago, we set our minds to acquiring a home in Florida that we could not only enjoy ourselves, but allow others to enjoy, too. We've been fortunate enough to make that happen! When we found Port Charlotte and South Gulf Cove, we knew we had found where we wanted to be. The combination of close proximity to beaches, golf, and fishing opportunities with the seclusion of a quiet residential area is unbeatable.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
When we come to Florida, our primary goal is to enjoy the sunshine and the beaches. Finding a home with a rear southern exposure was very important to us so we could maximize the impact of the sun on the lanai and pool. Creating a Florida experience within that home was our objective. You'll love what we've put together!
