                  Car: Recommended

                  Cape Coral is a great central location to get to lots of terrific places.

                  BEACHES: If you like beautiful white sand beaches, it's a short 15 minute ride to Fort Myers beach, Sanibel Island and Captiva. Sanibel is world renown as one the best beaches for shelling. Fort Myers Beach has lots of restaurants & bars, parasailing & jet ski rentals. Nearby Lover's Key Park in Bonita Beach is a beautiful, scenic place to enjoy a day at the beach. It also has a dog beach where the pets can frolic.

                  BIRD WATCHING: The area has great opportunities for bird watching at the many local parks, as well as Corkscrew Bird Sanctuary and the many Florida Birding Trail locations.

                  FISHING: If fishing is your thing, there's no end to the many boats available to take you fishing for whatever it is that interests you- from tarpon to jacks to grouper. Rent a boat or bring your own and dock it in your backyard, to explore the unbelievably beautiful waterways - the river, the gulf, the islands and picnic spots. See the dolphins play right next to you and watch for gentle giants, the manatees.

                  NIGHT LIFE: Downtown Fort Myers has a vibrant night life with restaurants, bars, shopping, many festivals and art events and it's only about 15 minutes away.

                  FESTIVALS: Cape Coral also has lots of special events and festivals where they close the street to traffic and everyone can stroll unimpeded and see the sights, have a drink or a bite to eat. There's an Arts & Crafts Festival, Friday Bike Nights (Motorcycles), and lots more (most within a short walk from the house). At the local German American Club there's a Mango Festival and a huge Octoberfest.

                  PARKS: There are many beautiful parks right in the Cape where you can walk or ride your bike for a bit of exercise. Just a short ride from the house is the Yacht Club with a large Olympic sized pool and a sandy beach on the Caloosahatchee River. It's great for swimming, barbequing, picnicking or grabbing a bite at the new dockside restaurant and the parking is free. A short ride will have you in the Everglades -take an airboat ride, see the gators, visit the Indian villages.

                  SHOPPING: Shoppers can have a great time at the nearby Tanger or Miramar Outlet Malls, where you'll get great deals on Coach, Nike, SAS, and tons more stores. There's also Edison Mall in Ft. Myers, the beautiful Coconut Point and Mercado Malls in Bonita Beach, only about 20 minutes away.

                  THEATER: The Barbara Mann Theater has lots of concerts and Broadway plays. There is also the Germain Arena for live concerts and other sporting events (including Hockey). Many local theater groups-watch them perform or join yourself.

                  BASEBALL: Watch Spring training practices and games for the Boston Red Sox or the Minnesota Twins.

                  MUSEUMS: Edison & Ford's Winter Home Museum is beautiful and interesting. Go to Babcock Ranch and see how they lived 100 years ago. Koreshan State Park and Museum has a great exhibit about the history of this religious organization. Find the Circus Museum in Sarasota-about 1 1/2 hours north.

                  OTHER LOCATIONS: Close to beautiful Naples-walk down 5th Avenue or around Historic District-eat, drink and shop!

                  CHURCHES: Cape Coral has churches of most denominations within a quick drive.

                  MEDICAL CARE: Lee Memorial Health System has a community hospital in Cape Coral and a several large hospitals located in nearby Ft. Myers. There are lots of physician's offices from eye specialists to cardiologists, urologists and general practitioners and a local dialysis center.

                  ZOO: Naples has a terrific one.

                  WATER PARK: Cape Coral has Sun Splash, a local easily accessible water park-fun for the whole family.

                  GAMBLING: There's a Casino in Immokalee, which is about 1 hour away. There is also the 'Big M' Casino boat which is in Ft. Myers and offers dining, music and gambling daily. Ft. Myers also has a greyhound dog track and also offers poker playing.

                  It is truly a great location to enjoy the beautiful weather, scenery and pursue whatever it is that gets you going!


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We live in Cape Coral not too far from our vacation rental. We are only a short drive away should any problems arise-but sure hope not. We moved down here from upstate New York in 2010 because we couldn't stand the weather up there anymore! We both work in the health care field-not retired yet! We love to go boating and can give you some great ideas of where to go have fun. We love it here in the Cape and we're sure you will too.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cape Harbour:
                  We love this area because it feels like you're on vacation 24/7/365 but you're not in a crowded, noisy tourist area. You can get there in 15 minutes if you want but you don't have to have it all the time. The weather could not be better and everything looks so much better in the sunshine! We love this area because it has easy access to lots of activities-we don't do them all, of course, but there really is something appealing for most everyone.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love the water and if that appeals to you, Cape Coral is for you! With about 400 miles of canals in the city you don't go very far without a water view.
