Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in South Gulf Cove - Villa Pelican Dock

Villa, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

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 The Owner

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 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. Linda & Barry.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose Port Charlotte

When we retired, we wanted our holiday home to be in this un spoilt 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, 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!

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.

Overall the house accomodated our needs buts needs updating

  • 3 of 5

We've rented many homes in the past and this one accommodated our needs with the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The bedrooms were a good size, 2 masters are ensuites with bathrooms, though the 2nd master bathroom was much much smaller. The 6th bedroom had a day bed so it is best suited for a child vs adult. The 4th bathroom is outside in the pool area so the remaining 4 bedrooms are sharing 1 bathroom inside the house.

The pool alarm was a bit annoying as mentioned in the other review. While I understand the security feature, it was a bit of a nuisance to have only x amount of seconds to come in and out of the door leading to the pool. The pool liner paint was flaking off which led to paint chips inside the water. The pool screen needs to be replaced as there were small tears in it.

I asked if we can check in earlier since the house was empty the day before and was told that it would be extra for electricity. At the end, we were granted early access when it was only an hour earlier. Check in is at 5pm vs 4pm Most homes are 4pm so make sure you check on your arrival time.

Garbage was piled in the driveway and it wasnt pick up till 2 days later. It was an eyesore when we pulled up to the house.

The house accommodated our needs but needs some improvements.

Fun Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for four couples! We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked and the table and bar was plenty of seating for eating. We all enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi and we cooked out on the grill several times. We spent a lot of time on the beautiful chairs and lounges on the patio. We all played golf and there were lots of golf courses nearby. Very quiet neighborhood and a great view looking out on the water. Would rent this house again!! Thanks Barry

Great accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Has lots of beds and bedrooms to spread out our golf group as difficult to find a house with a number of beds. The houses are spread out so did not have to worry as much about disturbing the neighbors while relaxing in a hot tub before bed. We have rented the last 2 years and plan to return next year.

bad management

  • 1 of 5

From the moment we arrived you could tell what kind of "host" we were dealing with. Firstly, we were never met at the rental for instructions on alarms (there are 2) pool, hot tub, tv set up etc. Having rented many houses for our family vacations this is the first time we were left to hunt for and figure out things on our own. There were however not one but two rule books as well as wall postings all over the house indicating "fines" for various infractions. Right from the start you feel more like a delinquent at a reform school than a welcomed guest that has paid high dollar to enjoy a property.

Be prepared to pay extra for literally everything including the GRILL! $84 and the rock hard cots $84 a piece!. The house has literally nothing (not even salt and pepper) or dish soap so you will spend a lot on supplies and leave them behind as you cant bring them home (a locked closet we assumed contains the goods left by previous guests) We ended up paying almost double with all the extras and still had a pool that was cold most of the time (even though we paid $200 extra for heat) an alarm system that kept going off and cots that were so hard that prisoners would not sleep on them. As expected we have already been accused of tampering with pool heat and alarm and told we will not be getting our deposit back. Not sure who wrote the glowing reviews on this site but you did not do us any favors. Stay away from this one

Owner's Response: We are very disappointed to learn this group now say, they did not enjoy their stay, especially, as I met them the day they left and they said they had, had a wonderful time! So, to read these comments is a surprise! They are clearly upset because they now understand they are to be charged for the damage they caused during their stay. 1) They removed the panel to the pool alarm and disconnected the system, even though they had 5 children under 8, clearly they were not worried about their safety. This is against Florida law and a breach of their agreement. The repair bill is over $80. 2) They broke into the Pool & Spa temperature control box and increased the heat settings. The repairs to the box is $65. 3) They asked when they booked how much the hire of the Gas Grill was, they decided against having it, but when staying they used it, so we have taken the hire charge which covers it's cleaning and the replacement gas used. 4) They said 'never met at the rental for instructions on alarms' then they also say 'There were however not one but two rule books as well as wall postings all over the house'. So, it's clear we did provide ample instructions. Our local agent is available 24/7 for emergencies, but they waited 3 days and then phoned on Presidents day and expected someone to come out and show them how things worked. As a long time property owner, with several properties, of over 12 years with VRBO, HomeAway. com, HomeAway.co.uk, VacationRentals and OwnersDirect, I would hope all the other reviews posted on our web pages show a clearer and a more accurate picture!

Car: recommended

This large, luxurious villa is on the beautiful Cape Haze peninsular. On the South West Gulf Coast, between Venice, Cape Coral and Sanibel Island. It is only 40 miles north of Fort Myers and SWF International airport. It lies within the South Gulf Cove Nature Reserve. Just 15 miles south west of Port Charlotte city. 10 miles south east of Englewood and 8 miles north of Boca Grande. I-75 north or south is a 20 minutes drive away. Full driving directions from all Florida airports will be provided by us.

South Gulf Cove is mainly a rural community. Most homes like ours, are on Deep water as this area is very close to the access for Port Charlotte Harbour, Myakka and Peace Rivers and the Gulf of Mexico.

Enjoy all types of fresh and salt water fishing, sailing/boating and the wonderful wildlife. But best of all, this area is known for it's beautiful Sugar sand beaches, it's warm, clean, clear and safe waters and the interesting and gorgeous shells and sharks teeth that can be found along this beautiful coast.

Golf: There are 8 great Golf courses, all within a 30 minutes drive, 70 within a 20 mile radius! They include a floodlit, 24 hour course just 6 miles away. All courses welcome children over 8, and hire out all equipment.

All local information on Golf courses, beaches, restaurants, shops etc., are listed in our villa manual.
