Private Homes, Southwest house description

3 Bedroom-2 bath pool home - Nothing Fancy
This fully-stocked 3-bedroom, 2-full bath vacation home is located in desirable SW Cape Coral and is comfortable. With two sitting areas and the enclosed pool area, there is ample room for entertaining, swimming, sunning, and dining out. Enjoy comfortable, vacation living in this pool home. This home features a Great room, with raised ceilings, and pocket sliding glass doors, which open onto a lanai and pool. The large Master bedroom suite also opens to the pool area, and has a cozy pillow-topped King-size bed. The lanai as just been rescreened and the pool resurfaced. There is central a/c and heat. All rooms as well as the lanai have ceiling fans. Backyard is fenced with a doggie door which leads from the lanai to the backyard. Bamboo flooring in all three bedrooms with tile in the kitchen and master bath. The rest of the house is carpeted. Yard has recent updated landscaping.


This vacation home sleeps 8 persons comfortably using sofa bed and there is no need to bring anything! You’ll find everything you need already there, from the bed linens to the cookware, and even a grill; just grab favorite groceries from a number of grocery stores just minutes away and relax in peace.

The house is not one of the newer ones. It is about 20 yrs. old so please don't expect a newer bright and shiny house. This is a comfortable lived-in home. There are new bamboo floors in the three bedrooms with new windows in the master bedroom and bath. A new 32' flatscreen TV in the great room and new dishwasher and microwave add to your comfort. The heated pool has just been resurfaced. Pool is heated via propane, which the renter is responsible for.

This vacation home is only minutes from outlet malls, fishing, beaches, golf courses and beautiful nature preserves. Also this home is a short drive away from the Spring Training homes of both the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins. Also close by are the Edison/Ford homes.

If relaxation is what you seek drift away in your own private pool and enclosed lanai. This house is perfect for the family getaway or the newlyweds!

Quiet neighborhood, yet conveniently located to the beach and many shops; or even a day trip to Miami! Oh and the back yard is completely fenced in so bring Fido along and truly make it a family vacation!

There is a rental contract to be signed.

POLICIES :
Payment Policy: All Rates in US Dollars.
Payment must be received 2 weeks prior to rental date. There is a refundable deposit of $250.00. Policy may change depending on reason for a cancellation.

Cancellation Policy: If cancellation is due to illness or some unforeseen emergency, refund will be given.

Rules: Rates are subject to change without notice.
No smoking. Propane tank for grill to be refilled by renter. During the winter season, we now have to request the renter pay for the propane to heat the pool as we found people have been heating the pool to high temperatures and leaving the heater to run constantly. To curtail this we've had to change our pool heating policy. We apologize that a few renters have caused this change and hope you understand our situation. Off season due to air conditioning usage, a fee of $50/wk. will be charged. Cable TV and internet use included as well as a land line phone. There is a contract to be signed prior to rental.

Check In Time: 2:00 PM
Check Out Time: 11:00 AM

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: My husband and I live in NH. We bought this as a second home after we sold another home in Maine. We enjoy the quiet life but love to travel. We have two sons, two daughter-in-laws, a granddaughter and 3 grandsons and a dog. I love to antique and go to auctions which I do both in NH and FL.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Southwest:
                      We choose to buy in Cape Coral after visiting the area for several years. The first few we stayed in Ft. Myers and then rented homes in Cape Coral. We have been all over Florida - east and west coast and inbetween. We decided we liked the west coast best and the Cape Coral area, so we purchased our future retirement home after viewing several other homes. Being huge Red Sox fans the proximity of the home to City of Palms park was one of the selling points. Along with the enclosed pool and lanai,the fenced in yard was another reason.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The home is in a quiet neighborhood. It is a corner lot which gives us a little more space than the rest. You have the benefit of using the pool and having privacy or you can venture to Cape Coral beach 15 mins away. If you'd rather have a larger beach, Ft. Myers beach and Sanibel and Captiva are within a half hour's drive. There is all kinds of shopping nearby with a Publix super market and Target within walking distance. The home is a 3-hr. drive from either Disney or Miami and 2 hr. drive to Tampa. We love going to Shark Valley in the Everglades which is about 2 hrs. Also, we love to hit the FleaMasters Fleamarket on the weekends. You can find just about anything there from vegetables to paintings.
