I am considering moving to a boating community from Sarasota. I'd like to hear from people that live in SGC (or once did) what they like and don't like about it.

Did you see the web site for South Gulf Cove? South Gulf Cove HOA Inc.. A residential community in Port Charlotte, Florida

It has a lot of helpful information.

I don't live in SGC but I spent a lot of time looking for homes in there several years ago. What I love about it is the many canals and location. Although it's a long commute by boat to open water, it's a quick 10-15 minutes to Boca by car. What I didn't care about the community was the amount of unkept homes. There are some really nice homes that take pride and have lovely landscaping and keep most of their belongings in the garage. Then you see some homes that have non working vehicles, boats, multiple trailors, and all their toys kept outside. People park on adjoining empty lots and it often looks really sloppy. I think it would look nicer if there were guidelines or some deed restrictions in place. I mean it's a boating community and I don't have problems with boats and boat trailors in driveways, it's a given, but some homes are overridden with junk. I would suggest you spend some time driving through there, there are some sections nicer than others. If you like deed restricted communities than you probably won't like it.

I see that all over Florida. Never understood someone's mentality to just park on someones property that wasn't theirs. They would be towed away quick up here.

I bought two lots in SGC and the lot I was not building on had 2 trailers and a boat on it. I asked my builder if he could get them moved as I didn't want the neighbors to hate me before I moved in. That will come soon enough.

Bill that's what I'm talking about. Someone had the balls to park 3 vehicles on YOUR lot without asking or paying YOU. Me, I would of have them towed even if it cost me money.

I bought the lots in March so for all I know they could have had an agreement with the previous owner who lives a few blocks away. Believe me, one way or another they were going to get moved.
