ECO Parks and National Wildlife Preserves.: It's free to visit the Cape Coral Eco Park at 4-mile Cove that winds through the mangroves and takes you to the river for a great view. The winding boardwalk provides the best view of spreading mangroves and a chance to view the natural life that lives along the river. For adventurers a canoe and kayak rental allows you to get closer to nature. The J. N. 'Ding' Darling National Wildlife Refuge Complex consists of the following: the Darling Refuge itself, and the Caloosahatchee, Island Bay, Matlacha and Pine Island National Wildlife Refuges. The 5,200 acre refuge protects one of the country's largest undeveloped mangrove ecosystems. The refuge is well-known for its migratory bird populations. The best months to visit for birding are December through March. Many events happen throughout the year on the refuge, which can make a visit that much more enjoyable. Down the road a short distance is the Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Just a little further is the Florida Everglades

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: We bought this home for our retirement in a few years but until then we are allowing others to enyoy this cozy home that we had professionals furnish for us.

                  Why the Owner Chose Banyan Trace, Clubhouse Villas:
                  We bought this home to be near several family members and friends who bought here around the same time so we could be near people we know when we retire.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                  Before we bought we learned as much as we could about Cape Coral and the area. We spent a great deal of time driving up one street and down the next so we could get a feel for the neighborhood and look for homes that were for sale in the neighborhood. We would then get our real estate agent to arange for us to look at them. When we walked through the door of this house we knew this was the one for us. We loved the open concept, the split bedrooms, the canal, the pool and lanai area and the fact it was semi secluded yet so close to everything.
