My beautiful home is located in the wonderful waterfront community of South Gulf Cove. It is minutes from Boca Grande, Gasparilla Island, Punta Gorde, and Manasota Key. Less than 15 miles to the beaches on Gasparilla Island or Manasota Key. The property is privately located at the end of the canal. There's a large private dock; your boat is welcome.
House is over 1900 square feet. Master suite has a king size bed with double doors that open to the patio and pool area. Large master bath with soaking tub.
Three more bedrooms on the other side of the house; two with two twin beds and one with a queen. Great for large families and groups.
Enjoy grilling and eating in the screened outdoor area. Cool down in the pool and enjoy the view.
Born and raised in Scotland, I moved to the United States when I was 19. I own and operate my own business making wheelchairs for handicapped pets, K9 Carts.
I live primarily in the Pacific Northwest but also spend time in Florida. Other than work, I enjoy traveling the world, karate, Scottish dancing, and spending time with my grandson.
Blue Heron LLC purchased this house in 2014
I chose my house in South Gulf Cove because it's close to all the best beaches yet very quiet, unlike staying directly in Boca Grande or other tourist towns. I loved this particular property because it's on the end of the canal with no one across from us or to the left. There are beautiful lily pads that grow all throughout the canal in front of the home. I also love that this house has four bedrooms making it ideal for larger families and groups.
End of the canal making it very private. Four bedrooms. Bikes, beach chairs, ping pong, and pool toys are included. Pool also has an optional security fence that can be easily set up to prevent children from falling in.
We had a wonderful stay. The house is only 15 minutes from Boca Grande.
We were one of the first to rent this house.
Glenn and Krystle were unbelievably responsive to every issue that arose. We have rented many places both in the United States and Italy over the years. We have had many responsive hosts. But no one else was as good as Glenn and Krystle. When the air conditioning had trouble, there was a repair guy out within hours. When he didn't quite get it fixed, Glen was ready to have him back in the morning, but unsatisfied with having to wait, Glen himself came over pulled it all apart and fixed the problem.
At our peak we had seven adults and a baby in the house. With 4 good bedrooms everyone was comfortably accommodated. And we in the master suite had particularly luxurious digs. This is a great place for a multigenerational family gathering.
Many Florida houses with a pool have a modest or even tiny enclosed deck around the pool. Not here. The pool deck is huge, tons of room to spread out. The photos can't quite show you how big it is, and photos of other houses seem to be a little deceptive as too how small the decks are. A pool guy slips in once a week to clean and maintain the pool. We also used the safety net around the pool to keep the 14 month old from falling in.
The living room is large with a high ceiling that gives it a feel of even more space. The kitchen is modern, large and well equipped. Unlike a lot of places, many of the basics are close at hand.
The location is a ways away from all the beaches and activity. The neighborhood is only partially built up, so there is no other house visible from the pool deck. You could feel safe sunning in the altogether, even though you are right on the canal.
The street has almost no traffic. I was able to play with the dog (who doesn't understand streets) without any fear of her running into traffic.
To close let me just repeat that Glenn and Krystle are fantastic hosts. You won't go wrong here
