About Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel
We are high school sweethearts who are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary this year. We have a wonderful daughter who we love to pieces and she now lives close by. Ernie has retired from social services and I plan to retire in a year or two. In Sarasota we have A Ray of Sunshine and in Port Charlotte we have Another Ray of Sunshine, so this one is the Third Ray of Sun. We enjoy creating vacation homes where families can enjoy their free time creating fun, happy memories.
Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel purchased this House in 2017
Why Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel chose South Gulf Cove
This is one of our future retirement homes. It is exactly what we were looking for to spend some of our golden years. This house offers a great view of the tip of two intersecting canals. It has a large Jacuzzi tub in the master suite and a large screen TV in the family room. We are in a quiet zone much like a park and have 160 ft. of concrete seawall for a panoramic view of the water. We enjoy renting a boat for 4 hours to explore the beautiful waterways and wildlife in the area.
What makes this House unique
The view of the canals is spectacular from the backyard. The house has a great layout and offers amazing comfort and a happy, peaceful feeling. There is almost two masters on opposite sides of the house with both having sliding glass doors to the pool. The house is almost totally renovated with high quality furnishings, art and kitchen utensils. The backyard bordering the large canal is completely fenced in for the safety of children. The dock has bench seating and allows for great fishing and crabbing. There is even an electric fireplace with hearth and mantle that will create ambience and festivities with or without heat.

Clean, comfortable home
Beautiful home, nice pool, great area and very nice property managers. One of the nicest neighborhoods we've stayed in.
A comfortable home in a relaxing and unique setting. Beautiful!
We have wonderful family, good time, memories! Loved the bike paths and boating canals! Our idea of the perfect vacation, in an ideal hangout pad that is also close to beaches, shopping, restaurants and entertainment! Hope to be back soon.
Beautiful house & area!
All the amenities needed to be comfortable. The house is gorgeous, tastefully decorated. A quiet neighborhood great for walking, enjoying the sun, the pool is very
warm & yard is a great size also what a view!!!
Thank you for the great review. We are so happy to hear that you love it the way we do. We are jealous that we can't enjoy it now, this winter is brutal here in the
north. Hope you got a chance to enjoy the newly built bike trails around the corner.
All the best, Linda and Ernie
We had the best vacation just what the doctor ordered.
The house and pool are beautiful.
The view and property so quiet and peaceful.
Can't wait to do it again.
Ernie and Linda great owners.
P.S. special thanks to Laurie & Paul managers over and above special people.
Thanks Anne & John McNeill
Thanks John and Anne! We are at the house now working on making your next stay even better. Just put up more art and had a new pool heater installed! We also love it here! Just took a bike ride on new trails and are leaving a couple of bikes for your use! Have a great new year!
South Gulf Cove is a true waterfront community. Bring your boat or rent one near by for exploring the canals, Myakka River, Port Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. The community has over 55 miles of navigable canals. All canals flow into the Interceptor Lagoon, which can be described as a large lake offering access to the Gulf. The canal and Lagoon systems offer pristine shorelines, many of which are designated as State preserve land. South Gulf Cove water depths range from 6-9 feet and bridge clearance is roughly 10 feet. All waterways in the community maintain consistent depts. because of lock system controlling water flow, to and from the Myakka River. The South Gulf Cove lock system has been recently updated to feature remote control operation and boats can pass through in as little as 7 minutes. There is a County owned boat ramp within the community that gives access to the waterways. RV and boat parking is allowed at the home. Our Third Ray of Sun is located in a Nature Preserve giving you a change to observe some of the old world Florida that you will not see close to the big cities.
