Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a Canadian couple from the Toronto area. Recently retired, we like to enjoy our villa during the cold winter months. We have spent a lot of time in Florida mostly in the Cocoa Beach area until we discovered this side of Florida. We have thoroughly enjoyed our last four winters spent in this area.

Why the Owner Chose South Gulf Cove (Port Charlotte, FL, USA):
We were looking for something in South Gulf Cove as we have friends here and enjoy the quiet peaceful area. It is close to beaches, shopping, theatres, golf and water activities but is secluded enough for total peace and quiet. We loved the tropical feel of this house and all that it included. It is a wonderful area for biking, kayaking and boating. The streets are quiet and there are parks for walking or dog walking close by.
