• South Gulf Cove

    DSC01126 (Small)South Gulf Cove is a boating community located in western Charlotte County. A large community of 15,000 home sites, it is currently experiencing growth, with many new single-family homes being built and many homes for sale.

    There are over 50 miles of navigable canals with access to the fantastic fishing in Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. The canals lead to a lock at the mouth of the Myakka River, which flows into Charlotte Harbor. (The lock maintains the water depths so that the canals are not affected by low tides.) From Charlotte Harbor, you are just a short boat ride away from the Gulf of Mexico.

    The location is truly the best of both worlds for both boating and beaching. South Gulf Cove is 15 minutes away from Englewood Beach, one of the most beautiful and popular beaches in Southwest Florida, and the famous island of Boca Grande. In addition, South Gulf Cove is just minutes from shopping, restaurants, and medical facilities. Golfers are in luck too. There are 99 holes of public golf in the immediate area.

    There are numerous waterfront homes in the community, and the homes tend to be newer. Vacant lots are still available both on and off the water. About 1/3 of the lots are waterfront lots and 2/3 are “dry.” South Gulf Cove is a great place to live even if you do not own a home on the water. Several boat ramps and marinas are conveniently located nearby and allow for direct access to Lemon Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Residents of South Gulf Cove also enjoy the area parks and community activities.

    Home and property prices in South Gulf Cove are very reasonable; in fact, South Gulf Cove is the most affordable saltwater community in Southwest Florida. Reasonable pricing, great location and friendly neighbors are some of the reasons why South Gulf Cove is experiencing a boom in new home construction. The area is deed restricted for architectural compliance and has a voluntary homeowners association.

    South Gulf Cove was recently featured on “Beachfront Bargain Hunt,” an HGTV show that features buyers searching for beachfront living on a reasonable budget. Come and experience the lifestyle!

    The community has four entrances off Gasparilla Road (SR 771) and is easily accessible from SR 776.
