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 its 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.

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.

Spacious well maintained property at a great value

  • 5 of 5

The owner Barry was very helpful and answered all questions within the same day. Very professional and responsible. The property was very clean and well maintained. It has plenty of extras which included board games, books, movies, fishing gear and pool toys just to name a few. The living space in the house Itself is very well distributed, especially for a large group. There is plenty of sleeping space as well and you will be comfortable regardless of group size. I would say that the house itself and area are great...We did not enjoy it to the max because it rained during our entire stay but thanks to the property being so well equipped and maintained we still very much enjoyed ourselves. Would definitely go back for a second chance at good weather and will strongly recommend to anyone wanting a spacious, clean rental at a great price!

*****Five star overall rating,

Location

From the Owner

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, 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!

Amenities

From the Owner

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, which 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!
