About The Owner

Ken and Jennifer live in Alaska. They are executives in the oil industry and maintain property concerns. They have five children, travel frequently, and are pilots. The entire family has a love for the outdoors. They look forward to the adventures when they are all together.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2010

Why The Owner 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.

The house is beautiful and well appointed. The owners are very kind, available and accommodating. They want to make sure you're comfortable and have everything you need. We rented the house for the month of February so had plenty of time to explore the area. Boca Grande is a quaint island located about 15 minutes from the house and has cute little shops, restaurants and I recommend watching the sun set while sitting on the beach. Edgewood is also fairly close by and has a spectacular beach with boardwalk. We rented a pontoon and boated to Flounders for lunch. They have entertainment and fantastic wings. For day trips I recommend going to Pine Island where you'll find a street lined with fun shops. One of them has home made ice cream which is excellent. Bert's bar is on the water and a great place to grab a burger. They also have evening entertainment. On the way out be sure and stop at the fresh fruit shop and buy some fresh squeezed orange juice, grapefruit and mandarin juice. Venice has a beautiful beach and a street lined with shops and restaurants. Nokomis has a pier lined with benches that's known for watching dolphins and wildlife. Not far from there is Siesta Keys which is a fun area filled with colorful shops and restaurants. Very close to the house you'll find some excellent restaurants. Pig and Whistle is a British style pub with excellent food. The bangers and mash is the best you'll ever have and the roast melts in your mouth. The Cove is 5 minutes from the house and that too was wonderful. Publix grocery store is a short drive from the house and very convenient. For boating call Steve at Neptune rentals. He's a great guy, they have several types of boats to choose from and the prices are very reasonable. For lazy days just relax and enjoy the beautiful pool and hot tub.

Disappointing - Poor Attention to Important Details

  • 2 of 5
The villa is wonderful and in a good location except that the design at the back is such that the sun did not shine on the pool in the late afternoon. The home is seriously let down by lack of a local maintenance company and inattentive owners. On arrival we found many of facilities not working (TV, phone, Internet, garage door opener, hot tub and, subsequently, air conditioning). The BBQ appeared not to have been cleaned in many months. The owners in Alaska were difficult to reach and then referred problems to the gardener/pool man, who had no expertise nor responsibility, to fix. Consequently we had to work directly with service suppliers and/or do work ourselves to put things right, sometimes at our own cost which was not reimbursed. The kitchen, bedroom and bathrooms were generally not as well equipped as other villas we've rented. Consequently we purchased a number of items, including bedding for the master suite, which was in particularly poor condition. Again no offer of reimbursement but rather an attitude from the owners of 'ignore the problems and get on with enjoying your holiday', We found it difficult to maintain the pool temperature at 80F without putting on the pool cover from mid-afternoon, which, due to the irregular shape, was quite a cumbersome process. We were shocked to receive a bill from the owners for almost $500 for international phone calls, even though we had used a pre-paid phone card. After discussion with the phone company it transpired a mistake had been made but we never received an apology from the owners. We left the property in a far better condition than we found it but still waited more than 2 months for return of our deposit. The owners deducted about $60 for use of gas, breakage of a vase and wax deposit on the patio, neither of which we know anything about. The owners have steadfastly ignored us since so we have now written all this off to experience. We've previously rented far better homes in this area so will return to one of those next time.

Owner's Response: Dear friends,

We do take great care and pride in our home. We just recently returned from an extended stay there where we were joined by four of our children. Florida is our second home! While we had the additional volunteer workforce we landscaped the foundation area and along the pool cage. We put in over 100 plants ourselves. The gardienias are my favorit as they are so fragrant. The fruit trees did show signs of neglect but are nursed back to health by the end of our stay. We plan to continue the landscaping and eventually add a dock in years to come.

Since this is our home we do block time for us and our family. When we have no plans we do rent it to others so they might fall in love with Florida as we have. It is unfortunate that our client of last fall wished to return for the winter months this year. As we have plans ourselves to be at our residence in early winter. Our inability to accomodate his return request obviously caused him great distress and he choose to vent his frustration. This is unfortunate and we do truely hope he is able to locate a comperable rental for the requested time frame.

I hope he can find a way to accept our apologies for the schedule conflict.

Mr and Mrs Kenneth M Domke

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
If your planning a trip to Florida this is a house to stay in. Close to all major needs and the best beaches in florida are just a 30-60 min drive depending on which one you would like to visit. The house is breath taking, very large :) and great for family's in a safe location. Jennifer and Ken are very quick to awnser e-mails, they are wonderful with communication.

What a wonderful vacation. The house is beautiful. We spent a great deal of time sitting by the pool while the kids played. It was so relaxing. Everything you need is there. The location is great. It is an easy drive to several beaches and a great fresh fish market. The owners were so helpful and answered several questions prior to our trip which made planning easy. We hope to go back!
