Hi Barry 19/05/15

We had a wonderful time, I cannot say enough wonderful things about your villa and the area, it was magnificent. We had a fantastic holiday there.

The villa is beautiful, my husband and I had the main master suite and it was amazing.

The bathroom was the biggest I’ve ever been in and we had a steady stream of visitors for a dip in the tub!

Your resident gator made a visit most days, we were thrilled to bits and got some fantastic pictures of it, think he enjoyed his rather nervous audience.

And thank you so much for the discount off our next booking, we will be back next year to use it!

If you would like to use anything I’ve said as a testimonial for your websites, please feel free.

Once again, thank you. Liegh UK.

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, 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.

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

Amazing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Ww had such an amazing time on vacation. We never saw the aligator but the kids loved fishing and swimming. The house was perfect for us. And in a quiet town just mins away from a big town to have fun in. We would definitely stay here again.

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!

Location

From the Owner

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!

Activity and Interests

Beaches: The villa is very close to 9 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.

Golf: There are 20+ wonderful Golf courses within 20-60 minute drive, including 4 championship courses and even a 24 hour floodlite course just 6 miles away. All courses welcome children over 8, and hire out all equipment needed.

Boating: From our dock, the beautiful Gulf Cove nature reserve is just 15 minutes sailing time away, via which, Port Charlotte sound is 20 minutes, then out to the Gulf of Mexico.

Fishing: We provide FOC a full range of Fresh & Salt Water fishing rods & gear for all ages as there is great fishing to be had in all areas, including our dock.

Shopping: Port Charlotte for all department stores is only 15 miles away, with a large Publix supermarket and two petrol stations, only 3 miles away.

Manual: 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?

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, 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
