Contemporary fully furnished condo with screened-in lanai, canal and nature preserve views, 25' boat slip, tennis courts, pool and hot tub, wi-fi, and carport in a gated community. Minimum lease of 30 days (HOA requirement).
A typical day for us: Wake up to enjoy our coffee while walking along the canal looking for manatees and the eagles that live in the area. Head out for a day at the beach, followed in the evening by a live band at the Cape Coral Yacht Club (about 15 minutes away) or perhaps poker night at the club house. Then we come home to enjoy an evening drink on the Lanai before turning in.
This modern condo sleeps up to 6 people in two queen size beds and a bunk bed. We also have a travel crib if you have an infant. The master suite has a large walk-in closet, dual sinks, and an spacious shower compartment. The master bedroom and lanai have a southern exposure with beautiful views of the Four Mile Cove Nature Preserve
Other features: The kitchen is modern, with Corian counters, cook-top range, refrigerator with ice-maker, hoodtop microwave, pantry, dining area, and breakfast bar with four chairs. The kitchen is equipped with cooking utensils, flatware, toaster, blender, a coffee maker, and a Keurig coffee machine.

We have two bikes for riding around (Florida is nice and flat!)

About the owner: We're Colorado residents who wished we had more time to spend in Florida. Our kids love coming down there and we all really enjoy the boating and beaches in southwest Florida.
Why the Owner Chose Island Cove: We have relatives in Cape Coral, and thought we'd buy a vacation home in the hopes of spending more time with them when we can get the time off to visit. Island Cove is secure, modern, beautiful, and has quick access to the river.
