About Barry Eastlake
Hello holiday seekers, thank you for viewing our villa.
Linda and I are from Oxfordshire, England. We have been coming to Florida, with our children since the early 80's. It was then, when the kids were small that we discovered and fell in love with Florida's Gulf Coast with it's beautifully clean 'sugar sand' beaches. The clear, clean, safe, warm gulf waters and all the wonderful wildlife that is all around you to marvel at and enjoy. All this and only a few hours from Disney of the Everglades.
Barry Eastlake purchased this villa in 2006
Why Barry Eastlake chose South Gulf Cove
When we retired, we wanted our holiday home to be in this un spoilt part of the South West Gulf Coast. Which, unlike most of the Florida coast line, it is not built up. It still retains that 'old world charm' that Florida had and is now mainly lost in places like Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples. Come and see for yourselves!
What makes this villa unique
Being within the South Gulf Cove Nature Reserve, you are privileged to see Florida's wonderful wildlife all around you. I have sat on the lanai and seen a Sea Eagle fly down and pick a fish out of the water just 30 feet in front of me. We have a 5 foot Gator, who regally visits our canal and will lay on the surface, he never comes close, just watching you fish from the dock. We have hired kayaks and spent hours sailing around the reserve, fishing, crabbing and bird spotting. This is the REAL Florida. There is not a lot left so we feel very lucky to own part of it!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hello Barry, (13/05/14) We had a great time, you have a lovely place. The pool and spa temperatures were perfect, thank you. We saw a baby alligator off the back and a water snake which the children thought was great. Regards Louise Barnett
