Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in South Gulf Cove - Villa Heron View

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps up to 12 people.

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 4 to 5 Bedroom villa comes with two Master Suites, both with US Queen Size Beds; both have double French doors to Lanai and Pool area. Two Twin Bedded rooms and two Family rooms, one of which has a fold out US Queen Bed, so, with cot or crib it can sleep up to 12 people.

There are three Bathrooms, one each in the en-suites and one family bathroom.

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 with a table and 4 chairs, Breakfast Bar with 4 High. The Dining table also seats 8.

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?

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 players in both Family rooms, 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 Barry Eastlake

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 Eastlake purchased this villa in 2006

Why Barry Eastlake 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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Barry, (13/05/14) We had a great time, you have a lovely place. The pool and spa temperatures were perfect, thank you. We saw a baby alligator off the back and a water snake which the children thought was great. Regards Louise Barnett

Big House with lots of extras

  • 4 of 5

We evacuated to Port Charlotte and Barry went above and beyond to make it an easy stay at a tough time!

Home has 4 large bedroom and two separate living areas, great house for a large group.

When renting here, keep in mind that the hot tub, and grill are not included, you will be spending an extra $250 for use of them.

Other than that we enjoyed our stay, the house was clean and had everything we needed.

Our blending vacation

  • 5 of 5

This rental home was exactly that, a home not just a house. Everything was clean and comfortable. Barry was very generous and easy to work with. This was our first vacation home rental experience and we will definitely be doing it again. The purpose of our trip was to blend our families and we all feel like one family. This was a PERFECT vacation!!

Lovely time had by all

  • 5 of 5

My sisters, spouses and I spent a month together in this home. It was a perfect setting. We were able to swim, do some sight seeing, and, more importantly, spend time together. The kitchen made it easy for us to cook together. We did puzzles, chatted, and spent lots of time outside. The house was large enough that we could claim private space and time, as needed. It was clean and met our needs perfectly. Now if only those shy alligators had been willing to say a brief hi, so we could say we saw one!
