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.

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.

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?

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

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 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, 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!

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.
