About Jennifer Swearingen
We are a group of friends who chose to purchase a property in one of our favorite destinations. South Gulf Cove is close enough to area amenities, but secluded enough to call "your private piece of paradise." Area amenities include great golfing, tennis, shopping, fine dining, entertainment and more are all close at hand. Residents also enjoy fun in the sun at nearby Englewood Beach or the secluded Boca Grande for swimming, shelling, sunning, picnics, jet skiing and all other outdoor activities.
Jennifer Swearingen purchased this House in 2008
Why Jennifer Swearingen chose South Gulf Cove
The Cape Haze Peninsula has some of the most pristine beaches that Florida has to offer - without the overcrowding. The Peninsula has no high rises, friendly locals, family owned restaurants and low traffic; this is "Old Florida." We decided to buy in the South Gulf Cove area because it is centrally located to the beaches, restaurants, golf courses and shopping. There are numerous activities within a 10-15 minute drive (7 golf courses, parks, beaches, shopping, arcades). South Gulf Cove is also a short drive to Sarasota and Ft. Myers; so you are never more than 30-45 minutes away from an airport.
What makes this House unique
One of the main aspects of our property that we enjoy is the overall privacy you receive when at the property. With only one neighbor, you don't have to worry about noise or interruptions; but you can drive five miles and be at a grocery store/gas station/restaurant or fast food. Being on a gulf access canal, you can rent a boat and have access to the canals, rivers and the Gulf of Mexico. This area is known for being the Snook and Tarpon capital of the world - so make sure to bring your fishing gear! You can even fish right off the back of the property on your private dock. We have stocked the property for long and short stays. You don't have to worry about bringing linens, utensils or pool toys - they are all there for you. You can also sleep peacefully; we provide ADT security for the property. The pool and hot tub provide a wonderful place to escape and relax. You will find that you won't want to leave the property once you arrive!

Palm trees and sunshine.
Perfect house for our month long vacation. Lovely interior with a great kitchen family room set up. The pool area was great with water views and palm trees. We enjoyed the area restaurants and Stump Pass was our favorite beach. Nice to live like a local for awhile. Would love to go back
Quiet neighborhood, clean and cozy property, good amenities
My friends and I had an incredible week long stay at this property. The house was big enough for all of us, had many things for us to use and was very clean. It's a bit of a drive to anywhere but that's both a pro and a con. A pro because it was a quiet week back in a cute subdivision, but a con because it took us a while to get anywhere. The pool and lanai were beautiful, though the filter wasn't working the best. There is a lot to do in the area and everything is affordable. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this area and property for a family or group of friends!
The house was spotless! Comfortable furniture and nicely stocked supplies. Wonderfully relaxing spa and pool. The only down side was the Red Tide that stopped us from going to the nearby beaches. Would definitely stay again.
When we got there the pool was green the kids were a little disappointed. It took 3 days for it to clear up that was sad. The house itself was very nice.
Thank you for the review. Unfortunately, the tenant who left the previous day didn’t inform me or the pool person of any issues. As soon as the cleaner told me of the issue, I called the pool guy to work on this. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Wonderful house, lots of space for the 8 of us who stayed there. The private pool was awesome. Love the house wide sound system. Saw an alligator in the canal on our last night there! Would definitely stay again.
Gorgeous home, highly recommended
The home was in perfect order with high quality furnishings, comfy furniture and very clean. The pool and view are phenomenal. The 1 neighbor was hardly noticed. Our family has travelled and stayed in many beautiful places, but this home is our new top pick. The location is close enough to some activities 4 those who wish to venture out more than we did. We simply chose not to miss any more time in the paradise found within the property itself. Communication with the owner was great.
