This villa has a full Security Alarm System on all doors and windows that are linked to a central station, with panic buttons for Police, Fire and the Ambulance service.

All doors and windows that lead to the Pool area have an independent Alarm system, to warn you if the kids try and get to the pool without your knowledge?

Activities and Attractions:

The villa is very close to 8 wonderful 'sugar sand' beaches all within a 20 minute drive, with some of the best shelling and shark tooth collecting to be had on the whole South Gulf Coast.

From our dock, the beautiful South Gulf Cove Nature reserve is just 15 minutes sailing time away, from which you can then exit into Port Charlotte sound and then, out into the Gulf of Mexico. There is wonderful fresh and salt water fishing to be had in all areas.

There are 10 Golf courses within a 30 minutes’ drive, including a floodlit, 24 hour course just 6 miles away. There are over 70 courses within a radius of 25 miles of the villa. All courses welcome children over 8, and hire out all equipment needed.

Port Charlotte for all department stores is only 15 miles away, with a large Publix supermarket and two petrol stations just 3 miles away. We list in our villa manual over 20 great local restaurants; there are all sorts of 'take-outs' locally, but why not cook your own 'catch of the day' on the villa BBQ/Gas Grill?

About Owner

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 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. Linda & Barry.

Owner purchased this Villa in 2006

Why Owner 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!

                                                                We had 3 families together for a week with plenty of room. The house has a very nice lay out and we were able to dock our boat at the house with no problem.

                                                                Nice place to get away. It was a little bit of a drive to anything

                                                                overall it was a great house to stay in, weather was perfect! The downside, when we checked in on a Saturday the maintenance office was closed. I left a message because the master bedrooms toilet had been plugged previous to our stay, and cold water continued to poor out of the hot tub jets. I really thought these were problems to be addressed over the weekend, but after leaving 3 messages the plumbers showed up at 1:00 on Monday and the lady was not helpful or concerned that the hot tub was cold. We did pay 200.00 to have it heated. The instructions in there 3 ring binder do not explain accurately how to use the controls. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
