South Gulf Cove Deep Water Access, Heated Pool/Jacuzzi / Games Room / Boat Dock

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Nov-2016
House in South Gulf Cove, Port Charlotte, Florida Gulf of Mexico, USA - Very Peaceful, Deep Water Access, South Rear Facing Home Close To Boca Grande And Excellent Beaches.

Our lovely home is set in South Gulf Cove and has deep water access together with a boat dock and lift. Ideal for fishing if you don't own a boat!! There are 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a games room with slightly undersized pool table. The bedrooms are a good size and the main living area includes a dining area, living room, kitchen and utility room. There is a double garage and also off road parking. If you are looking for a beautifully furnished and equipped house, a sun soaked pool area and tranquillity, Melport House is for you! The lanai is enormous! There is a shaded seating area under the lanai and a 2nd area is the sun for relaxation. The lanai is south rear facing, so if you are looking for a tan, it is perfect! There are no houses on the Melport Waterway far bank, so it is unbelievably quiet. It's perfect! Beaches are close by, a 10-15 minute drive, shops about the same and there are plenty of golf courses including 6 on Rotonda which is very close by.

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday at this beautiful villa. Having stayed in Orlando for the last few years, we found the pace of life, traffic etc so much more relaxing and have returned home suitably chilled out. We liked the villa so much that we spent a lot of our time in the pool and jacuzzi rather than exploring the region! It is close to supermarkets and an easy drive to restaurants. There are 2 adult bikes and one kids bike in the garage and despite the heat, we cycled most mornings. The roads are totally flat and it is lovely to cycle around the neighbourhood where every house backs onto a waterway and marvel at the beautiful houses and surroundings. Our favourite places to visit were Boca Grande, and Stump Passe Beach (both within 25 minutes). Favourite restaurants were the Loose Caboose in Boca Grande and Farlows on the Water in Englewood and Lickety Split Ice Cream Parlour in Englewood was fantastic. The owner Rebecca was very helpful and accommodating throughout the booking process, and provided a great information booklet (after booking) covering everything that you would need to know. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place and will most likely return next year, as there is so much more to see and do.

Owner's Response: It was lovely to have you to stay and very much hope that you will return. You enjoyed two of our favourite restaurants, but we need to go back to Lickety Split, we haven't been for a while and it definitely needs revisiting!!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa, the nicest we have ever stayed at in our many visits to Florida. Lots of information given by the owners. Very peaceful location that is not overlooked making it very private. Fishing possible from the boat dock and the electric garage door a definite boon.

Location

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Fishing: Fishing is one of the passions for visitors to this area. From mid-April to mid-July, the mighty Tarpon game fish arrive in their thousands into Charlotte Harbor and Boca Pass is one of the best spots to participate or to watch the battle between man and fish! The best times to fish are during hill tides and we can give you these dates nearer the time.

For those wishing for something a little less energetic, local backwater fishing is excellent. Different fish are available at different times of the year, but include Spotted Trout, Ladyfish, Redfish, Sheeps Head, Mullett, Grouper and Talapia. Fish freshly caught and on the BBQ the same day . . delicious!

Coast/Beach:

Several beaches are close by, a 10-15 minute drive. Our home backs onto a deep water access waterway, so you can bring your own boat or jet ski's, or possibly hire a boat for your stay, or just enjoy the boat dock and some good fishing! The inter-coastal waterway is wonderful with small islands to explore, restaurants to visit which you can only reach by boat or just go out and marvel at the wildlife. You may see pelicans, Osprey, Manatee, Dolphins or Turtles and the fishing is wonderful!

Travel:

1.5 hours from Tampa Airport

1 hour from RSW (Ft Myers)

3.15 hours from Miami

2.5 hours from Orlando

Distances:

We are 20 minutes from Port Charlotte, an hour from Bradenton Outlets and about the same south to the Miramar outlet.

Further Details:

We do send our guests a guide to the area which includes local supermarkets, good local restaurants, great local beaches etc. We provide information on boat rentals, additional bicycle hire, location of State Parks, some local golf courses etc.
