About Debbie Drummond

We are Canadian citizens, both in the construction industry and enjoy vacationing in Florida

Debbie Drummond purchased this house in 2014

Why Debbie Drummond chose Port Charlotte

Were very excited about our vacation property and have completed many recent upgrades. We are very familiar with South Gulf Cove and have spent the last few years vacationing there with family. We love the area so much we decided to purchase a property. South Gulf Cove is a peaceful, quiet area and has great proximity to the beaches/ocean. South Gulf Cove area has just been featured on HGTV as a great vacation destination

What makes this house unique

The house is located on a large intercostal waterway and very close to many beautiful beaches. It has great southern exposure to enjoy the warm tropical sunshine by the pool or sitting on the dock.

Great relaxing week!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home! A great place for a relaxing vacation. Nice and cozy for a couple or small family. It was nice to watch the boats come and go from the harbor. We tried to fish from the dock, but we had no luck. Maybe just too many boats in the area. Nice area with plenty of restaurants and shopping. We sure didn't want to leave, but hopefully we can return next year. We would highly recommend this home. Debbie was great and responded to emails quickly.

We spent 1 month at this wonderful home. The purpose of our trip was to relax. Very little shopping or touring took place. Having said that, this home was fantastic. Very nice layout and very comfortable. The home had everything you needed in the kitchen and bathrooms. The absolute highlight of the home is the pool and lanai area, looking over the boats passing in the canal. My sentiments echo the rest of the reviews. This home is definitely worth staying at. We have no complaints whatsoever.

My family stayed at this wonderful house in October after wearing ourselves out at Disney World. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left( which we did not want to do) it was a great time for everyone! My 7 year old daughter only left the pool if we were headed to the beach. The house is absolutely beautiful, clean and has everything you need to feel at home and relaxed. Debbie is easy to work with and booking was a breeze. The house is ideally situated for peace and quiet. We really didn't hear any neighbors the whole week. I was able to sit in the lanai every morning, watch the sun come up and hear nothing but the palm trees rustle and the birds chirp. Great vacation, wonderful house. Would love to visit again!!

Everything You Need.... Sun, Swim, Beach and BBQ

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicest homes we have stayed in. Nice quiet community. Everything you need is available; garage,WIFI, bikes, BBQ, heated pool and equipment for the beach. It has been recently renovated and is very clean and in perfect working order. We rented a boat and cruised the channels around South Gulf Cove before docking it right at the house. Very short drive to several beaches and shopping. Really enjoyed the stay and thanks to Debbie for the easy and open correspondence.

My family and I stayed at this lovely vacation home for one week and it was everything we thought it would be...and more! The house is beautiful, clean and looks exactly the same as the pictures. Debbie and Kevin have thought of every possible comfort of home and included it in this lovely rental property. We could not have been more happy! To top it off, the location, South Gulf Cove, is gorgeous. The neighborhood is quiet and placid, situted on the water, which you can see from the beautiful lanai and almost everywhere in the house. Minutes away, you will find everything you need, including shopping, beaches and restaurants. We recommend this property highly!

Lovely setting and very nice home. This was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had just sitting outside having breakfast and watching the occasional boat go by. We went out for a few morning walks when it wasn't too hot and my husband made good use of the bikes. Lovely beaches and plenty of shopping close by and we hope to maybe come back one day soon.
