Private Homes, Southeast house description

Live the dream in the vacation home with the UNBEATABLE VIEW from every room! This west facing home sits at the intersection of two extra wide,200 foot canals providing SPECTACULAR long water views and fabulous sunsets every night.

Spend your days relaxing on the lanai, swimming in the heated pool, biking, walking in a beautiful neighborhood and fishing or boating from your own private dock. Watch dolphins, rays and fish play in the water from the comfort of your lawn chair.

The perfect day doesn’t end there---watch the sunset beyond the panorama of majestic royal palms while cooking a steak on the gas grill and sipping your favorite beverage. Then, enjoy the peaceful, moonlit evening by taking an after dinner swim in the heated pool.

Once inside, you'll find spacious, light filled rooms with panoramic views of the water from every room! You'll love the sliding doors that disappear into the walls, opening the master bedroom, living room, family room and even the dining room to the screened lanai.

With 2200 square feet of living space, this split bedroom layout is perfect for couples, families or friends traveling together. The master suite with full bath is on one side of the home with the living room, dining room, kitchen, family room and laundry separating it from the other 3 bedrooms and bathrooms. The home has an open floor plan for entertaining, yet plenty of privacy for all.

The master has a king sized bed, 1 guest room has a king bed and the two guest rooms can be set up with 4 twin beds or 2 kings. This house sleeps 8 in the bedrooms. Add 2 additional portable king mattress and 2 twin size bed/couches and the home will comfortably sleep your entire group.

This is truly a home, not just a vacation rental, furnished with everything you could possibly need for a lovely, fun filled vacation! You'll only need to bring your swimsuit!

Boaters will love the 2 minute, around the corner, no bridge access to the river. It’s a quick boat or car ride to Sanibel, Captiva and the Gulf of Mexico with lots of fun park and restaurant stops in between.

We also offer several boats for rent. Ask owner for details

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: Bruce is still a practicing attorney in Minneapolis and is an avid waterskier. We live on a large lake here and love all water activities and have always loved Florida for the water and weather. We accelerated the timeline of owning a retirement home in Florida after Sue battled (and survived) two different cancers over a four year time period. We learned the lesson of living our dreams now! We'd like others to live their vacation dreams in our new vacation home!

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Southeast:
              When we were looking for a vacation home to buy, we checked this home out on Google Maps. One glimspe of the view of 200 foot intersecting canals and close proximity to the river and and we booked a flight to Cape Coral the next day to make an offer! We are excited to share our vacation dream home with you and know you will enjoy it just as much as we do!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              There is a different, equally stunning sunset every night, it's the highlight of the day! If you are a fishing enthusiast you will enjoy cathcing large fish right off the dock and boaters are just minutes away from Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach
