Overview

South Gulf Cove Villa Rental Photos and Description

Three-bedrooms Plus Den, Three Baths, Relaxation At Its Finest!

We have built an awesome home in a fantastic setting and we want to share it with you. Upon your arrival, you'll know that you're in for a treat. A brick paver driveway and walkway lead to an inviting glass double door. Upon entering that door, the welcoming entryway opens up to the spacious great room and its soaring coffered ceiling. The great room is also open to a spectacular kitchen and dining area. You'll enjoy the view of the fully screened brick paver lanai, heated pool, and spa. Zero corner sliders in the great room and dining room disappear to completely open the living area up to the lanai. This sensational feature allows for the perfect blending of outdoor and indoor living. The beautiful pool is 13x26 and includes a sunshelf that is ideal for sunning and for the little ones. The home offers three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, plus a den with a queen-sized sofa sleeper. With tasteful 18x18 tile floors extending throughout the home, exquisite granite countertops in the kitchen, all bathrooms, and even the laundry room, the zero corner sliders, three beautiful coffered ceilings, and the saltwater pool and spa, this is the ideal Florida lifestyle experience!

The house is beautiful and brand new.

The home is set on a southern exposure lot so you'll get plenty of that famous Florida sun. The canal we're on is a short boat ride away from the river and Charlotte Harbor, which leads directly into the Gulf of Mexico.

About Ken Tharp

We've both been Midwesterners our whole lives, but we've loved the chances we've had to travel. Florida has always been a favorite destination.

Kristen has worked in libraries for many years, and is currently employed in the library of our city's medical school. Ken owns and operates a real estate service business that helps investors minimize tax liabilities.

We discovered when our kids were very little that we really enjoyed Florida. We have traveled to several locations in the state over the years, but we truly love the Gulf Coast. If you haven't been to the Ft. Myers/Sarasota area before, you're in for a treat. And if you have been here in the past, you know what we mean!

Ken Tharp purchased this villa in 2013

Why Ken Tharp chose South Gulf Cove

A few years ago, we set our minds to acquiring a home in Florida that we could not only enjoy ourselves, but allow others to enjoy, too. We've been fortunate enough to make that happen! When we found Port Charlotte and South Gulf Cove, we knew we had found where we wanted to be. The combination of close proximity to beaches, golf, and fishing opportunities with the seclusion of a quiet residential area is unbeatable.

What makes this villa unique

When we come to Florida, our primary goal is to enjoy the sunshine and the beaches. Finding a home with a rear southern exposure was very important to us so we could maximize the impact of the sun on the lanai and pool. Creating a Florida experience within that home was our objective. You'll love what we've put together!

Nice Villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5
The villa is perfect, and is in a great location we have stayed nearby many times and this is one of the best and quietest areas. We used the beach at englewood mostly and always enjoyed it. The villa is well equiped ( could maybe do with more sun loungers around the pool ) we did have a problem with the pool but Ken the owner tried his best to resolve the problem and it wouldnt put me off staying in the villa in future, all in all we enjoyed our stay we just wish it could have been longer.

Owner's Response: Alan, thank you for your comments. We have a great remote control system that operates the pool and spa. It allows our guests to control both the pool and the spa from the palm of their hands. Once or twice a guest has pushed buttons that have caused a problem. The problems are usually easily rectified, but in your case it was a little more involved. We know that you weren't the guest who pushed the wrong buttons, but unfortunately you were the one that was affected. We're working to make the remote operation as simple as possible and pledge to have things in better condition if you would like to book again. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves and we would love to have you back!

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5
We had a family gathering here. The home was perfect for us.
A bath for each bedroom made it comfortable for all. This place is just as the photos were shown. It has everthing you need.
Hanging outside around the pool/spa with family and friends was great.
I highly recommend this rental!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought our small dog with us to this absolutely beautiful home and had the most relaxing week of our lives. Although there are several beautiful white sand beaches within a short drive, we rarely left the house as we preferred to spend our time floating around the pool, soaking in the spa, relaxing watching tv on the screened-in lanai, and cooking in the gorgeous kitchen. I tend to be a bit picky when it comes to home decor/design, and this home was incredibly well designed and impeccably decorated. The homeowners were very responsive, friendly, and helpful throughout the process, and we found the home to be well stocked with towels, pool floats, plenty of dishes, etc. We absolutely can not wait for our next chance to return to this vacation home!

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you for the wonderful comments! We love the fact that there are so many options for things to do during your stay at our home, but just hanging out at home is one of our favorites, too. Kristen and I are very glad that you enjoyed your stay and would welcome you back anytime! Thank you again!!

Map

Car: necessary

Some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere are within a 30 minute drive. Shelling, swimming, sunning, and shark tooth collecting are all fun and relaxing.

If you're a golfer, you will find many fantastic courses, also within 30 minutes. Four championship courses are nearby, and there's one that offers 24-hour tee times using floodlights! They all rent equipment and players of all ages are welcome.

For fishermen, you can indulge your passion right in the backyard, rent a boat for more serious sessions, or go on one of the many area daily charters.

Restaurants abound, and several great alternatives are nearby. We'll be happy to give you our recommendations, and there's a list of some of our favorites in the house.

For the shopper, Port Charlotte has all of the recognized name stores, plus local specialty shops. Nearby Punta Gorda is another source for great shopping alternatives. A large Publix grocery store (great key lime pie!) is five minutes away, as are gasoline stations and other shopping.
