PEACEFUL, DEEP WATER ACCESS, HEATED POOL/JACUZZI & GAMES ROOM

South Gulf Cove House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom house with boat dock & lift, huge pool deck, heated pool and Jacuzzi

Our lovely home is set in South Gulf Cove and has deep water access together with a boat dock and lift. Ideal for fishing if you don't own a boat!! There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a games room with slightly undersize pool table. The bedrooms are a good size and the main living area includes a dining area, living room, kitchen and utility room. There is a double garage and also off road parking. If you are looking for a beautifully furnished and equipped house, a sun soaked pool area and tranquility, Melport House is for you!

The lanai is enormous! There is a shaded seating area under the lanai and a 2nd area is the sun for relaxation. The lanai is south rear facing, so if you are looking for a tan, it is perfect! There are no houses on the Melport Waterway far bank, so it is unbelievably quiet. It's perfect!

Beaches are close by, a 10-15 minute drive, shops about the same and there are plenty of golf courses including 6 on Rotonda which is very close by.

Boating in Florida: Our home backs onto a deep water access waterway, so you can bring your own boat or jet ski's, or possibly hire a boat for your stay, or just enjoy the boat dock and some good fishing! The intercoastal waterway is a wonderful boaters paradise with small islands to explore, restaurants to visit which you can only reach by boat or just go out and marvel at the wildlife. You may see brown and white pelicans, Osprey, Manatee, Dolphins or Turtles and the fishing is wonderful!

Fishing: Fishing is one of the passions for visitors to this area. From mid-April to mid-July, the mighty Tarpon game fish arrive in their thousands into Charlotte Harbor and Boca Pass is one of the best spots to participate or to watch the battle between man and fish! The best times to fish are during hill tides and we can give you these dates nearer the time.

For those wishing for something a little less energetic, local backwater fishing is excellent. Different fish are available at different times of the year, but include Spotted Trout, Ladyfish, Redfish, Sheeps Head, Mullett, Grouper and Talapia. Fish freshly caught and on the BBQ the same day . . delicious!

Golf: It's the USA and golf is high on many people lists. There are 6 courses on Rotonda and literally dozens outside. From short executive courses which are about 80% water, to long meandering courses through Florida's natural flora and fauna, there is something here for everyone and every ability level. Courses are less expensive than Europe and most courses include the electric golf buggy in the price.

PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
After traveling quite a distance from Michigan we were welcomed by a wonderful comforting home for our family of six with four small children. The house was exactly as described and more. The layout was great and the pool was exactly what the kids needed, big, clean and warm. The beds and furniture where cozy and the nature area that surrounds the home was beautiful! The staff we worked with were prompt and a complete joy. We highly recommend staying here and proximity was close to all the beaches in the area ...can't wait to come again next year!

WONDERFUL HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Melport House is a beautiful house, it is well supplied and in a great location. There is fishing directly off the dock on the property. It is a reasonable drive to Englewood and Venice beaches. Cedar Point Environmental Center and Stump Pass State Park are nearby and offer very nice guided nature tours as well as having miles of walking trails. For the golfer there are reasonably priced courses in the area, 4 of them located a short distance away in the Rotonda.

There is nothing better than to finish off your day at the beach or golfing than sitting in the spa under the stars! It doesn't get any better. Thank You Darren, It was a wonderful stay!

JUST FEEL YOURSELF RELAX

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous villa and location.

The villa was spotless and the owners had thought of everything we might need to make our stay comfortable

Sitting outside at the pool was so peaceful and relaxing, and the fish were jumping out the water all day from the water way that ran past the back of the villa

Plenty to do around the area, and we especially liked Punta Gorda with its little shops in fishermans village, and the beaches were lovely and quiet .

Would definately recommend this villa, and the owners, who even although they supplied us with a information pack, were always quick to reply with any questions we had before we went

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for a wonderful review. We do appreciate them and we know that potential guests like current reviews! We agree that Punta Gorda is lovely for a day out if you want a little break from the Sunshine. We love sitting at the end of the pier at Harpoon Harry's watching the dolphins and boats in Charlotte Harbor. I'm also a great fan of the shoes in Ruby Slipper! The beaches on the island (not Punta Gorda) are excellent and if you visit again, it's great fun to hire a golf cart to tour the backstreets of the island and drive up to the end where they have the small, but excellent museum. Thank you again and hope to see you back again soon!

MELPORT HOUSE ENGLEWOOD PORT CHARLOTTE

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderfully holiday in Melport house.The directions from Tampa was excellent,and Rebecca's attention to detail was first class.The house was clean,spacious and very comfortable.We have stayed in many houses in Florida and never seen such a big pool deck with and a great hot tub.
The area is quiet and peaceful,but only 15 minutes to most places.5 minutes to Publics,10 minutes to Walmarts and beaches,15 minutes to Port Charlotte.We loved Venice,and at the end of the pier is Sharkey's restaurant,wonderful for sunsets.Boco Grand is another world,well worth a visit.Fishermans Warfe at Puta Gorda is excellent.Try Nicola's best garlic bread ever,and Mama's both great value.
We are seriously looking to go again.After Marco Island, Fort Myers andCape Coral,we definitatly prefer this area,after 5 weeks we were sad to leave.
P.S. Try a baseball game at Port Charlotte 7 Dollars.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay, we love the area so much and it is wonderful to hear that you feel the same. Next time, try hiring golf carts to go around Boca Grande. It's a brilliant way to sight see the island and you can take the carts right up to the tip where the museum is. We've done the baseball and really enjoyed that which we hadn't really expected to . .it's so family orientated isn't it. Another good trip if you go back to Punta Gorda is to take one of the sunset cruises around the harbor. More reasons to come back and we would be delighted to welcome you back to Melport House! Many, many thanks for your review.

Many thanks for our stay in your lovely villa. It was better than the pictures and very spacious and clean. The pool area was huge and was very peaceful. Fishing on the dock was good, caught some red fish, lady fish abd cat fish. I would definately recommend this villa and hope we can come and stay here again for our holidays.

Best wishes,

Car: necessary

South Gulf Cove is close to the island of Boca Grande and is on the opposite side of the road to Rotonda West. It's a sleepy community laced by deep water access canals It is not highly developed and it is generally the east and west parts of South Gulf Cove which are more developed. The boaters prefer the east side because it is closer to deep water access into Charlotte Harbor and this is where you will find Melport House. It is a perfect location for a couple looking for some serious rest and relaxation, but also great for family holidays were you can enjoy numerous beaches, friendly locals and fabulous weather. You will need a car here, everything seems to be about 5-15 minutes leisurely drive, but it is certainly worth the effort. The area is known in the travel industry as one of Florida's Best Kept Secrets, visit us and you will see why!
