South Gulf Cove Villa Rental Photos and Description

Vacation Rental Description:

Location:

South Gulf Cove is on the Cape Haze peninsular east of the Rotonda and south of a line between Port Charlotte and Englewood, and North of Boca Grande. It is within the boundaries of the South Gulf Cove Nature reserve.

The Villa rear faces south onto a Deep Water canal, with easy access to the South Gulf Cove Nature reserve, Port Charlotte Harbor and then the Gulf of Mexico.

Accommodation:

This Six Bedroom villa comes with two Master Suites, both with US King Size Beds; both have double French doors to Lanai and Pool area and HDTVs. Two double queen size bedrooms and two twin bedded rooms. Also, in the Great room is a fold-out Queen Double. We can provide cots or cribs to both Master Suites, so can sleep up to 16 people.

There are four Bathrooms, one each in the en-suites, one family bathroom and one pool side.

The whole villa is fully Air-Conditioned with ceiling fans in every room for our wonderfully hot Florida weather and centrally heated for those odd cool nights that we sometimes get.

There is a large, fully equipped Kitchen, Breakfast Bar with 4 High Chairs. The Dining table seats 8 people.

There is a large fully equipped Laundry room and double garage.

There is a 30ft x 13ft Heated Pool with a separately heated Spa/Jacuzzi that seats 8. The rear of this villa faces south and has the Sun all day. The covered Lanai is 30ft x 10ft and the Sun Deck is over 30ft. The whole rear of this villa is fully caged and is not over looked.

There is a 50ft x 6ft Private Dock. Great fishing can be had from this dock and the fun of then seeing how good Dad actually is in cooking it on the villa BBQ/Gas Grill?

Security:

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?

We have a local Management Company who live locally, to assist you for any emergency 24/7, and whose office hours (M-F) are 9-5 for any other questions or requests?

Amenities:

It is superbly furnished throughout, as you would expect in any top of the range luxury villa. It is fully equipped, including HDLCDTV’s, HDDVR Satellite receivers, DVD/Video recorders, CD player, HDLCDTV’s with Satellite receivers in both Master suites.

All linen, crockery and towels are included, even beach towels and toys. Just bring food, drink and yourselves.

Free Wireless High-speed Internet connection and all local telephone calls are also free!

We supply Free of Charge for your use, a full range of fresh and salt water fishing rods and equipment. You just need to buy bait.

Boat Hire: We have an arrangement with a local boat yard, which has a fleet of 10 boats of all sizes. We can sort out your hire before you arrive at a discounted rate.

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 Barry Eastlake

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 its beautifully clean 'sugar sand' beaches. The clear, clean, safe, 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.

Barry Eastlake purchased this villa in 2006

Why Barry Eastlake chose Port Charlotte

When we retired, we wanted our holiday home to be in this unspoilt 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, which 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Barry, Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much my family and I enjoyed our stay at your Villa! We came away with many wonderful memories that will be with us all for a very long time. The house size was more than we expected and very comfortable. The location was great, so beautiful. We hope to be able to come again in another year or two. Thanks for everything! Regards from Linda & Lou. England.

Spacious well maintained property at a great value

  • 5 of 5

The owner Barry was very helpful and answered all questions within the same day. Very professional and responsible. The property was very clean and well maintained. It has plenty of extras which included board games, books, movies, fishing gear and pool toys just to name a few. The living space in the house Itself is very well distributed, especially for a large group. There is plenty of sleeping space as well and you will be comfortable regardless of group size. I would say that the house itself and area are great...We did not enjoy it to the max because it rained during our entire stay but thanks to the property being so well equipped and maintained we still very much enjoyed ourselves. Would definitely go back for a second chance at good weather and will strongly recommend to anyone wanting a spacious, clean rental at a great price!

*****Five star overall rating,

Iris & family from Miami, Fl *******
