Southwest Florida Gulf access Homes for Sale

Southwest Florida , more specifically Cape Coral and Fort Myers , offers some of the most amazing and affordable gulf access properties in the state. With the Caloosahatchee river splitting the two cities there is not a lack of properties that are either canal front, riverfront or beach front. Depending on location and price, your typical gulf access home in the area is typically only 5-25 minutes to the River and after that only a short ride into the gulf passing Sanibel Island or Pine Island depending on your route. Marinas are plentiful in the area with Tarpon Point and the less accessible (due to a lock) Cape Harbor only minutes away from the Gulf and Caloosahatchee river meeting.
