About Jennifer Swearingen

We are a group of friends who chose to purchase a property in one of our favorite destinations. South Gulf Cove is close enough to area amenities, but secluded enough to call "your private piece of paradise." Area amenities include great golfing, tennis, shopping, fine dining, entertainment and more are all close at hand. Residents also enjoy fun in the sun at nearby Englewood Beach or the secluded Boca Grande for swimming, shelling, sunning, picnics, jet skiing and all other outdoor activities.

Jennifer Swearingen purchased this house in 2008

Why Jennifer Swearingen chose Port Charlotte

The Cape Haze Peninsula has some of the most pristine beaches that Florida has to offer - without the overcrowding. The Peninsula has no high rises, friendly locals, family owned restaurants and low traffic; this is "Old Florida." We decided to buy in the South Gulf Cove area because it is centrally located to the beaches, restaurants, golf courses and shopping. There are numerous activities within a 10-15 minute drive (7 golf courses, parks, beaches, shopping, arcades).

South Gulf Cove is also a short drive to Sarasota and Ft. Myers; so you are never more than 30-45 minutes away from an airport.

What makes this house unique

One of the main aspects of our property that we enjoy is the overall privacy you receive when at the property. With only one neighbor, you don't have to worry about noise or interruptions; but you can drive five miles and be at a grocery store/gas station/restaurant or fast food.

Being on a gulf access canal, you can rent a boat and have access to the canals, rivers and the Gulf of Mexico. This area is known for being the Snook and Tarpon capital of the world - so make sure to bring your fishing gear! You can even fish right off the back of the property on your private dock.

We have stocked the property for long and short stays. You don't have to worry about bringing linens, utensils or pool toys - they are all there for you. You can also sleep peacefully; we provide ADT security for the property.

The pool and hot tub provide a wonderful place to escape and relax. You will find that you won't want to leave the property once you arrive!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in spite of all the rain we had. We were close to many sights, and we enjoyed just being in the house. We enjoyed the beaches and Gasparilla Island. It was a fantastic vacation in spite of being rear ended in Atlanta on our way down. Thanks for offering the house at the Little Theater fund raiser.

Beautiful Clean Home!

  • 5 of 5

We've certainly stayed in our fair share of rental homes over the years and this one by far is within our top 3. My husband and I normally rent homes when we travel with our 3 children, but this time it was just the two of us; celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary.

Crazy to rent a home so large for just two of us? Maybe, but it was perfect and we wouldn't have done it any different! We enjoyed the hot tub and pool the most. Thank goodness it was closed in because those mosquito's are hungry! You definitely need bug spray when going outside the screen. The view was so peaceful and because this home is so secluded and private, it was amazingly quiet.

We did a bit of fishing off the dock, with fresh raw shrimp... no luck but it was fun. Hoped to see an alligator or more wildlife, though we were happy with the sounds of the birds and the little anoles running around.

The house was so clean and so beautiful inside. They provide everything you would need, just as they say!

I was excited to come 'home' each night after a long day. The bed was just like mine at home and I slept so well and woke to the lovely view of the pool and canal.

The hotel is also alarmed with a security system, which we never felt the need to use. The area, though secluded, never felt unsafe.

We would definitely stay again if we're in the area! We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of January at the rental. Weather couldn't have been more perfect, 75 - 80 every day but one. Very clean and very private. Enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub immensely. Very close to golf, grocery store and other amenities.

Beautiful, clean and private.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2.5 weeks in December 2016 in this home, with our 4 children ages 9 and under. We had an amazing time. The pool and hot tub provided hours of entertainment and relaxation. I sat alone on the dock to watch the sunrise many mornings while my family slept, truly a blessed experience. The kids could even play in the front yard because there was almost no traffic at all on this quiet road. We really loved this house.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We went down and stayed for a week and had an absolutely wonderful time! The pictures don't do the house justice. It was such a beautiful place. Even though there were neighbors on one side, you had no idea they were even there. It was so peaceful and private. There are so many different beaches around to visit. Stump Pass was our favorite. We loved this place so much that we want to stay here again sometime!
