We are a Canadian couple from the Toronto area. Recently retired, we like to enjoy our villa during the cold winter months. We have spent a lot of time in Florida mostly in the Cocoa Beach area until we discovered this side of Florida. We have thoroughly enjoyed our last two winters spent in this area.
Melody & Larry McKay purchased this bungalow in 2012
We were looking for something in South Gulf Cove as we have friends here and enjoy the quiet peaceful area. It is close to beaches, shopping, theatres, golf and water activities but is secluded enough for total peace and quiet. We loved the tropical feel of this house and all that it included.
There are several world class beaches within a 30 minute drive. You can collect shells and sharks teeth on Englewood Beach or relax on the beautiful beaches of Gasparilla Island. Siesta Key beach is a very popular white sand beach a little farther away. Venice Beach is known for its shark teeth. There are enough golf courses in the area to golf at a different one every day of the week including four championship courses. There are numerous marinas nearby to rent a boat or go on daily fishing charters. Fishing piers nearby are also very popular. There are also sight seeing charters from nearby Fishermans Village or Boca Grande. Restaurants abound with several within a short drive. Port Charlotte has all the popular chain restaurants (Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Applebee's, TGIF, Chili's, Carrabbas, etc.) within a short distance. There is a Publix grocery store 5 minutes away and a Walmart about 10 minutes. Port Charlotte has a large mall with all the well known stores (Bealls. Penny's, Macy's, Dilliards, Sears) plus many specialty shops. Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda offers unique boutique shopping and restaurants. There are wonderful cycling paths from here to Placida and very quiet streets for cycling in the neighbourhood. 2 bikes are included.
