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 undersize 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 tranquility, 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.
Boating in Florida: 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 intercoastal waterway is a wonderful boaters paradise 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 brown and white pelicans, Osprey, Manatee, Dolphins or Turtles and the fishing is wonderful!
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!
Golf: It's the USA and golf is high on many people lists. There are 6 courses on Rotonda and literally dozens outside. From short executive courses which are about 80% water, to long meandering courses through Florida's natural flora and fauna, there is something here for everyone and every ability level. Courses are less expensive than Europe and most courses include the electric golf buggy in the price.
