About Betty and Kevin Dennis

We currently live on Grand Lake in northeast Oklahoma and have been blessed with friends and neighbors that are more like family. We've come to cherish them dearly and love the excitement that lake life provides! On the other hand, there is something so peaceful about listening to the waves roll in/out along the beach that seems to carry all your troubles away. While visiting Florida earlier this year, we instantly fell in love with this area and knew we wanted to be a part of it! We are thrilled to be able to share our home with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Betty and Kevin Dennis purchased this house in 2012

Why Betty and Kevin Dennis chose South Gulf Cove

When we first walked into this house, we knew we found our dream home. Its secluded far enough from the hectic city life to enjoy the peace and tranquility, yet close enough to enjoy a wide variety of activities and dining. Plus the nice sized yard means the neighbors aren't right on top of you, so you're afforded some privacy if sitting outdoors. It's the best of both worlds!

What makes this house unique

The nearby beaches are beautiful and offer everything from shelling, to quiet walks, to fishing. Golfers have a choice of several courses to play. Plus, you are close to both Sarasota and Fort Myers for dining, shopping, shows, theater, and events. Day excursions, nature preserves, island hopping, walking/biking trails are also just minutes away.

Wonderful home in a tranquil setting!

I actually found this home as a winter getaway for my parents but it turned into much more than that. Not only did I take my wife and children down from Michigan to visit Dad and Mom, two of my brothers did the same thing with their families. We all took turns but the accommodations were excellent for this type of vacation due to the split plan design of the home. The setting is out of the way and quiet, which was my parents desire, no hustle and bustle. We did find that it is closely located to some great off shore fishing and even boat rental for the more adventurous types like me.

The furniture is all new and top quality and the beds are new and comfortable as well. We found the home to be very clean and that was a big consideration as we are also "clean freaks". There are cable TV's, with DVD players in each area as described which is a big plus when the grandchildren want to watch shows on their own.

The pool is very nice and in top working order, no surprises there. It is more of a place to cool of and relax that something for diving though.

The garage is large and clean as well and was a big plus for Dad and Mom's SUV, which fit in without any trouble.

To sum this up, Dad and Mom will be staying again next winter but my younger brother is taking his family over winter break, so we will be staying home....wishing that we were there again.
