    The community of South Gulf Cove is a deed-restricted community located just off Rt. 771 on the way to Boca Grande from Port Charlotte. This is a newer community with an extensive canal system (approximately 55 miles of navigable canals). Most of the canals are very wide. The canal system provides the residents of this community with access to Charlotte Harbor. All the canals converge into the Interceptor Lagoon which leads to a lock near the mouth of the Myakka River. From here the residents have access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. A number of the properties are designated as having sailboat access meaning that there are no bridges to the harbor.

    South Gulf Cove is becoming increasingly popular with people who want affordable waterfront and a community with an upscale look and feel. Today it is still possible to find a waterfront home for around $250K.

    Many of the residents of South Gulf Cove are active in their community. There is a Yacht Club and a community website. Just a few years ago this area was thought to be out of the way, but as the area has developed, retail shopping has followed and is now only minutes away. There are many fine restaurants within easy driving distance.

    This community is also a short drive to the Gulf beaches. Any closer to the beach and you’ll find the price of saltwater canal property more than doubles. At this time only about one-third of the lots in South Gulf Cove are developed; water and sewer projects have been completed and sections where development was not possible are seeing new homes being built.

    Just across Rt. 771 and within 15 minutes of South Gulf Cove, you’ll find 4 golf courses: Long Marsh, Palms, Oakland Hills, and Cape Haze links. So if you’re looking for a waterfront community, you like being conveniently located to the beach, golfing, shopping, and dining, then this community is definitely worth a look.
