Southwest Florida extends along the Gulf Coast from Sarasota / Bradenton in the North to Naples / Marco Island in the South. Approximately in the middle of this magnificent coast, lies the Cape Haze Peninsula with Englewood, Rotonda, Placida, Manasota Key, Palm Island and Boca Grande. This part of the Gulf Coast is the largest "little secret" with the least crowded beaches and you're all invited to enjoy what we have to offer. Our 3 offshore islands await you with a total of 40 miles of white sandy beaches. We call numerous great public Golf Courses our own. You might want to rent a boat or a wave runner for a day or two in one of our six working Marinas along Lemon Bay.
It may very well be that a vacation creates the desire for more. Our small but well-trained team will help you to find a suitable property, the perfect blueprint or an already existing house.
Many argue that the Southern tip of the Florida Gulf Coast is a paradise. And in some ways this is true too. There is little crime and the climate is very pleasant and balanced. The winters in Southwest Florida are pleasantly warm. Our summer months are filled with long days, warm Gulf waters and unique sunsets. There is always a pleasant breeze thanks to the proximity of the Gulf of Mexico.
A paradise for nature lovers
Whether you do a morning walk along the beach, glide thru Lemon Bay in a kayak, collect shells, watch the playing dolphins or enjoy the unforgettable sunsets – the Cape Haze Peninsula is a paradise for nature lovers with various State Parks open to the public. This area is part of Charlotte County, where low density is a priority. This is your guarantee that our beaches will never be crowded. Most of our local restaurants are in private hands plus many of them offer outdoor seating and all await you with friendly staff and delicious meals.
The popular Englewood Beach lies just across the Southern bridge and features boardwalk, picnic tables under shelter, restrooms and changing facilities. Restaurants and tourist shops are all nearby. A couple of miles farther South you find the more secluded Stump Pass Beach, part of Florida’s State Park system. Blind Pass Beach in the center of the island is a great place to search for shark teeth. This beach also includes a nature trail that meanders through mangroves and sand dunes. Farther North, Manasota Beach with brand new facilities offers tranquility and is a popular snorkeling area. Boogie boards, noodles and beach balls are welcome.
Palm Island is one of the few islands left on the lower Gulf Coast where you can really get some quiet time and ignore the rest of the world. There is no bridge - you have to take a ferry to the island, which runs 7 days a week. Or take the water taxi between Johnny Leverocks Restaurant on the mainland and the Rum Bay Restaurant at the Palm Island resort so the public can dine at the their restaurants.
Boca Grande at the Southern tip of our peninsula has become a heaven for the wealthy, with gorgeous shops and restaurants. The public part of the lovely beach with the lighthouse is also a popular excursion destination and is famous for spectacular sunsets.
