Tropical Southwest Florida is the area on the Gulf Coast of Florida between Bradenton and Naples. Leave the stress and traffic of the larger cities and narrow your search to the smaller towns of North Port, Venice, EnglewoodPort Charlotte and Punta Gorda. You are less than an hour from Fort Myers or Sarasota and two hours from Tampa. Our part of Southwest Florida comprises Charlotte and Sarasota Counties and all the communities therein. Swim year round

Anywhere in Florida, you’re only 60 miles from the beach, but you’re right next to the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico at Englewood and Venice, and a few minutes more from North PortPort Charlotte and Punta GordaBeaches here are world famous for their white, sugary sand and intriguing shells and shark’s teeth. Everything here is related to water activity.

Each Southwest Florida community has its special charm. Wander through the historic downtowns of VenicePunta Gorda and Englewood.  For affordable new homes and easy access to I-75, try North Port or Port Charlotte.

Waterfront property is still considered a bargain in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, when compared to Sarasota or Naples, and belWaterfront livingieve it or not, Southwest Florida has many “horse-friendly” neighborhoods.  You have Englewood Farm Acres and Lake Geraldine in EnglewoodNorth Port Estates in North PortPrairie Creek and Charlotte Ranchettes in Punta Gorda and Mission Valley Estates in the Venice area. Even inland, you are no more than 25 minutes from a beach in most areas.

Florida certainly earns its nickname as The Sunshine State with the sun shining about 360 days a year, perfect for golfing, boating, hiking or any outdoor activity. Rain is normally just a few hours, not an all day event. In fact, one St. Petersburg newspaper used to give the paper away on any day the sun did not shine. Charming Spanish style homes

Frost is rare this far south of Tampa, so you can grow bananas, avocados, guavas, Key limes, papayas, mangoes and all sorts of tropical fruit in sub-tropical Southwest Florida. Actually, October –May is the growing season for vegetables. If the temperature in Southwest Florida gets below 70 degrees, we look for a sweater.

Bring your lawn chairs, flip flops and big cooler, and you’re ready to find your place in the sun.

Waterfront and coastal property of any kind is always a premium price, next would be navigable canals and rivers. Check with FEMA for flood insurance guidelines. Everyone is in some type of flood zone. Access to the Gulf is a major determining factor in the value of a property, then its age and how long it takes to get toSW Florida beach open water.

For beach lovers, there are about 35 miles of sandy beaches along the Southwest Florida coast.

Of course, South Florida’s tropical climate, warm sunshine, and spectacular sunsets are legendary.

The Southwest Region of Florida, between Sarasota and Fort Myers, has comfortable weather year round. At 5 to 25 feet above sea level, the region has a subtropic climate that is checked by the tempering influence of the Gulf of Mexico. The Peace River, as well as the Gulf of Mexico, contributes to the hot and humid climate in the summertime (but it's not unbearable due to cooling Gulf breezes.)Prevailing winds are normally 12-18 mph. The rainy season lasts from June through September, with rain spread fairly evenly throughout those months. Thunderstorms tend to pop up quickly but also dissipate just as quickly, with the sunshine quickly returning. The winters are lovely with warm afternoons and mild evenings and much less rain.

The whole area centers on Charlotte Harbor, which was recently ranked as one of “America’s Top Ten Places to Sail,” in SAIL Magazine. Located along Florida’s Southwest Gulf Coast, between Sarasota and Naples, Charlotte County was first settled by Hernando Desoto in 1536. Voted by Money Magazine as “Best Place to Live in the South,” this unique harbor with its barrier islands and beach communities has also bTourist beach stopecome a favored vacation destination for many people. It offers miles of sparkling turquoise waters and soft, white sandy beaches to play in, aquatic preserves, hundreds of hiking trails, an abundance of marine and wildlife, clean air, lots of sunshine and a very special old-fashioned hospitality. A few of the more unique things to do in Charlotte Harbor include taking an evening sunset cruise, watch dolphins on a dolphin sight and sound tour, learn to sail on the shimmering waters of the Gulf, eat fresh citrus fruit you pick yourself, and take a wildlife buggy tour through an unspoiled cypress swamp. Also available are bike rentals, kayak and canoe rentals, birdwatching, wilderness and aquatic tours. Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf Islands also offer many art galleries, waterfront boutiques, antique shops and flea markets in the many fishing villages and oceanfront towns in the area. It’s little wonder Charlotte Harbor is often referred to as the state’s “best kept secret.” 

Use this website to find out about the various communities and what they have to offer. Try to decide if you want a waterfront home, golf course community or a condo.  You may search for property by price, features or area. There is information on schools, financingGolf with nature, attractions, restaurantsbeaches and more. Living in Florida is more of a lifestyle than a location. Remember that all waterfront property is not alike. Some homes are on canals have no real access to the Gulf of Mexico. Others have direct access. The length of time to get out to open water affects the price. If you have a sailboat, you need to be sure the property has sailboat access with no bridges. The water in some of the canals or in the Intracoastal Waterway may be dredged to 5 or 6 feet, but Charlotte Harbor has some very shallow water. Stay in the channel if you have a deep draft.

Even with the explosion of growth in this area, you’ll find some of Florida’s finest parks and fishing. Dock your boat in your backyard or trailer it to the nearest boat ramp. You’ll find boat ramps all over Sarasota and Charlotte Counties.

You could golf every day at a new course and not run out of options for a month and a half.

Waterfront lifestyle—Gulf, bay, lake, canal, creek, Intracoastal—water is the defining element of Southwest Florida and price is what is making buyers take notice.
