Private Homes, Southwest house description
This beautiful Gulf-access, pool home is situated on an oversized corner lot on the Capri Canal. Located in a quiet neighborhood with no thru traffic, this roomy gorgeous 3 BR + Den / 2 bath offers an open floor plan with volume ceilings, and large windows to really let in the sunlight and tropical views. Complementing the open feeling are deluxe details including crown moldings, etched-glass doors and granite counters and ceramic tile set on the diagonal.
Feel like a millionaire in the Deluxe Master Suite, with its walk-in tiled shower (big enough for company), separate garden tub, dual sinks/vanities, a separate toilet room, and walk-in closet. Of course, it includes a huge, tropically themed bedroom with a King-size bed. The stereo CD clock radio includes an iPod dock.
Enjoy the a beautiful view of the pool, canal and surroundings from the Queen bedroom with its direct access to the pool. Get into the beach mood in the shell decorated Twin Bedroom, which is separated from the Queen bedroom by the second bathroom. The Den/Game Room has its own HDTV and can also be used as a fourth bedroom.
All pillows, mattresses and even the box springs have dust-mite and bedbug-proof covers. We don't have the the bugs, and we don't want them.
Adjacent to the dining room with its glass-topped table is the exceptionally well-stocked Granite and Stainless Steel kitchen. The list of electrical appliances includes a griddle, a George Forman grill, a crock pot and even a coffee grinder and an Espresso machine.
Relax outside at the screen-enclosed pool with lanai and sun deck. Swim anytime in the oversize heated pool with its planters and tranquil spillover water feature. Read a book from our library, or make a quick lunch with the new gas grill with multiple burners, plus a side burner for warming. The Lanai includes a ceramic-topped table with six chairs.
Enjoy your evenings in the Great Room with one of our books, or use the video library with the giant HDTV with surround sound, cable, DVD player and VCR. Or play your own videos or tunes through the iPod dock. For a change of pace, spend some time in the Den/Game Room.
Keep in touch with WiFi, or use one of the cordless phones with free long distance service to the US and Canada.
And, of course, two sets of linens, washer & dryer and garage with opener.
THIS IS A HOME, NOT A HOUSE. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
We bought our home in the summer of 2010. Located in the highly desirable Surfside Area of Southwest Cape Coral, it was completely refurbished, but empty. We spent all Fall furnishing and decorating it. Now we have decided to rent it seasonally during the times that we are not there. Because we use this as a second home, you will find that it has everything you need to feel as if you were at home. We do not treat the home as a rental and the condition and amenities will surprise you.
One difference between a house and a home is the little things you don't miss until you need them: Paper clips. Flashlight. Pliers and screwdrivers (even the eyeglass size). Note pads. Pens and pencils. Batteries, battery tester and charger. A desk. Spare toothbrush. Spare reading glasses. Espresso machine. Cutting boards. Beach things (wheeled cart, towels, umbrella, chairs, mats, coolers, etc), and lots more.

It doesn't come any better than this.
It doesn't come any better than this.
What an absolutely wonderful Florida vacation home! Because we had never seen the house, did not know the area, and there were no previous renters comments, we were somewhat anxious about renting this home sight unseen for two months. We should not have worried. This is a beautiful, artistically decorated, immaculately clean home with many amenities. Great attention has been given to detail and everything about it is very conducive to relaxing and enjoying Florida. We ate most of our meals outside, swam almost every day and just enjoyed sitting around the pool reading or listening to music. The owners are very responsive and great to work with. The property manager is very knowledgeable and equally responsive. We loved the neighborhood and the proximity of the house to Matlacha and Pine Island. We spent many happy days shopping in the quaint stores in Matlacha, enjoying the scenery, trying out different restaurants, and buying fresh seafood. It is an easy drive to other areas such as Sanibel Island or to Fort Myers Beach, although I must say, we preferred just staying at home. There are great restaurants in Cape Coral and we loved the easy atmosphere of the entire area. Our favorite restaurants were Maria's for Italian food and Brew Babies for a special lunch or dinner. Our grandson caught two nice size fish off the dock of the next door neighbor and was very proud of himself. He took pictures of the two catfish to share with his friends back home. We were impressed with the number of families with children in the immediate neighborhood and how friendly everyone was to us. We cannot wait to return next winter to enjoy again our Florida “home away from home.”

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Southwest:
We bought our home in the summer of 2010. Located in the highly desirable Surfside Area of Southwest Cape Coral, it was completely refurbished, but empty. We spent all Fall furnishing and decorating it, and still are not finished. Use our fishing equipment in the brackish water canal just beyond the pool
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The cable service offers repeats of many of our favorite TV shows. There is a shelf just inches below the pool's water surface. It's a great place to lie to keep cool while sunning.
