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 it's 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 purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Barry chose South Gulf Cove
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, 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, who 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!

Small Family Florida Vacation (July 2015)
We had a wonderful family holiday at Pelican Dock - it was home from home. There was plenty of space of our large family group, beautifully located, peaceful and quiet. The villa has everything you need for a lovely relaxing family holiday. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us .
Coast/Beach: You will be very close to our 9 wonderful local 'sugar sand' beaches which are all within a 20 minute drive. They are some of the best shelling and shark tooth collecting spots along the South Gulf Coast. Thay are all very clean and safe swimming waters, that are controlled and patrolled regularly by the state nature watch officers. All have Toilets, Changing rooms and BBQ/Picnic areas. Parking is just $2 per day on most beaches. We provide FOC a full range of Salt & Fresh water fishing gear! Travel: Airports: Tampa 90 miles (1.5-2 hours). Fort Myers 45 miles (.75-1.5 hours). Bradenton 45 miles (.75-1.5 hours). St. Petersburg 75 miles (1.25- 1.75). Miami 120 miles (2.5-4 hours). This location is great as a central point for all of Florida's wonders. Just 1 hour from the Everglades, under 2 hours from Disney, Universal and all the other theme parks and less than 4 hours from Miami and then the Keys. And yet you are already within our own local South Gulf Cove Nature reserve. Distances: Nearest Supermarket and Petrol/Gas stations is just 4 miles away. Nearest restaurants and take-outs are all within a 15 minute drive. Port Charlotte is the nearest city with all the shops, restaurants, cinemas, banks and other outlets you would expect in a good sized city. We list in our Villa Manual over 20 local restaurants that we like and will recommend. Further Details: Guest Comments: Hello Barry, (08/07/14) I am just writing to tell you about our stay at your home. My family and I enjoyed the convenience and how we had everything we needed at the house and if we had to get stuff it was just up the road. The house was very nice and had plenty of room for the 8 of us. We would recommend the house to others. Thanks Josh Hartman. Hi Barry, (01/07/14) Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time this past week! The house was just the right size for our needs. Thanks again, Caron Murstein Hello Barry, (27/06/14) Thank you to you and your staff for being so helpful on everything. We had such a great time we would like to rent again for next year (May 18th - 23rd for 2015). I can get a deposit to you anytime if the house is available. Thank you, Kurtis Cox Hi Barry, (01/05/14)It has been a pleasure working with you and as I have said on the phone the house was perfect. I had rented a 21ft center console and the “James Bond” type ride out and back at 35 miles per hour to the lock was a daily highlight! Great Fishing, We caught 50-60 fish every day, the best was a 5lb Gag Grouper and the rest were either Mangrove Snapper or Spotted Sea Trout, nearly landed a very large shark but it got away. More than happy to do what I can to promote your house and I thank you again for the use and for being a gentleman when dealing with me, I can be a pain in the ***. Somehow I don’t think you will be surprised when I say I can’t count the number of homes I have not rented because of a lack or slow replies and outright rudeness. Cheers again and all the best, Chris Newton Hi Barry, (16/01/14) You have a beautiful home and we are very grateful to have had the opportunity to stay there. Betsy Spiller
