About The Owner

Hello holiday seekers, thank you for viewing our villa.

Linda and I are from Oxfordshire, England. We have been coming to Florida, with our children since the early 80's. It was then, when the kids were small that we discovered and fell in love with Florida's Gulf Coast with it's beautifully clean 'sugar sand' beaches. The clear, clean warm gulf waters and all the wonderful wildlife that is all around you to marvel at and enjoy. All this and only a few hours from Disney of the Everglades. Linda & Barry.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose South Gulf Cove

When we retired, we wanted our holiday home to be in this un spoilt part of the South West Gulf Coast. Which, unlike most of the Florida coast line, it is not built up. It still retains that 'old world charm' that Florida had and is now mainly lost in places like Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples. Come and see for yourselves!

What makes this villa unique

Being within the South Gulf Cove Nature Reserve, you are privileged to see Florida's wonderful wildlife all around you. I have sat on the lanai and seen a Sea Eagle fly down and pick a fish out of the water just 30 feet in front of me. We have a 5 foot Gator, who regally visits our canal and will lay on the surface, he never comes close, just watching you fish from the dock. We have hired kayaks and spent hours sailing around the reserve, fishing, crabbing and bird spotting. This is the REAL Florida. There is not a lot left so we feel very lucky to own part of it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Barry, (08/07/14)

I am just writing to tell you about our stay at your home. My family and I enjoyed the convenience and how we had everything we needed at the house and if we had to get stuff it was just up the road. The house was very nice and had plenty of room for the 8 of us. We would recommend the house to others.

Thanks Josh Hartman.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for the wonderful accommodations! It helped make our vacation a true vacation. Great weather also helped. We did not want to leave. The golfing, beaches and shopping were all in close proximity. We definitely would go back and would recommend this property to friends and family.
We did have some issues with the pool not being ready when we got there but in a few days this was corrected.
Thanks again~

Best Florida Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
Thanks Barry for allowing to stay in your beautiful home. We were so impressed with the layout and the decor. The kitchen is very impressive with everything you could ever need or want. This villa was just perfect for our large group, and it was nice that everybody had their own bathroom. The pool area is like an oasis and the kids appreciated the pool toys that are available. The location is so peaceful and tranquil, yet so close to beaches and shopping. Our plans are to come back next year and stay at Pelican Dock.

This property is a winter paradise

  • 5 of 5
We liked the look of this website so much that we rented this huge space for just 2 people. It was a very wise decision. The weather was nice and warm but the property itself is absolutely amazing. From the moment we walked in the front door we were right at home and thrilled to be there. The decor is beautiful and provides a sense of tranquility. The kitchen is superbly stocked with high end dishes, cutlery and cookware.and every utensil known to man. The bedrooms are spaced out to give everyone plenty of privacy and the 2 master suites are much nicer than normal. The furniture was very comfortable and clean. Even the patio furniture was comfy and well cared for. It was a pleasant surprise compared to what we normally see in vacation rentals.
The private pool was delightful and the pool area was well maintained. The alarm system going out to the pool took a bit of getting used to as we had no children to worry about but I can see that would be useful to a young family. It rained a couple days while we were there but the overhang on the lanai is large enough that I could comfortably sit and read a book without getting wet. It was just very relaxing.
My husband did a little fishing off the dock and there was a vast array of fishing poles provided. We enjoyed watching the large turtles in the canal and the coconuts hanging in the trees by the lanai made it seem like a tropical paradise. We enjoyed the fact that the property is far enough off the beaten path to make it quiet and serene. Without all of the city lights to ruin things, we could actually sit and look at the stars at night. It was breathtaking. We can't wait to go back with our family.
We didn't go to the beach or to any of the tourist attractions. We were perfectly content to just remain in this beautiful property and enjoy all that it had to offer. It is far beyond your typical vacation rental. I'm sure that the next time we visit we will stay longer. Once you're there, you never want to leave. We can't wait to go back.

Villa Pelican Dock South Gulf Cove

  • 5 of 5
The Barnes and Christopher family had a fantastic week at Villa Pelican Dock South Gulf Cove Villa during July 2012. The villa location and excellent amenities made this week a relaxing break following a hectic week at the Orlando Theme Parks. The villa was clean, tidy and spacious and had bed rooms to cater for a large family group. Directions from the owner from Orlando Airport made it easy to locate the villa. The local gulf coast beaches were just a short car journey from the villa and easy to find. There were plenty of choices for eating out at good quality, friendly and good value restaurants in the local area. I would recommend this villa for a relaxing enjoyable holiday. Thanks Barry

Lewis Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
What a great house! With the 10 of us traveling to Florida to visit my son and his family, this was such a great place to stay. We was close to stores, resturants, movie theather and the beach and yet it was private.
The pool was a blessing. The grandkids had so much fun playing with their cousins.
The house had plenty of room for visiting and a well equipped kitchen for fixing big meals for all of us.
Even though Storm Debby was present the first few days, we had a great time.
This is a vacation all of us will remember. Thanks

Dear Barry, Thank you for returning so quickly our security deposit. We had a really great time. Your house is just beautiful. Brenda, your agent was just great, gave us very useful local information and sorted out the few problems we had very quickly.
The boat we rented from you for those two weeks was fabulous, so we saw a lot of the area. Did a lot of fishing and then cooked them on your grill, great fun for me and the kids.
Thanks again for renting your house to us.
Tom and Denise. Canada. May 2008.
