The Lovely Coral Perch
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Coral Perch and Grace couldn't have been more helpful or gracious. She has everything available to use that you could possibly want or need. The pool was lovely and the view of the canals peaceful. We would recommend this property to anyone and would love to have the chance to return.

Review of Coral Perch rental property
Review of Coral Perch rental property
The Coral Perch rental property exceeded my expectations. The home was exactly as depicted on the website, but even more beautiful in person. My first impression upon arrival was that the home was impeccably clean with everything sparkling and in perfect condition. It looked as though nothing was ever used. The appliances, the cookware, the furniture, the pool, the bedding...everything appeared as though it was brand spanking new! It was definitely a "WOW" moment walking through the home on arrival. Our host was so gracious and accomodating. She answered any questions we had and told us where we could find great local places to further enjoy our already fantastic stay. The word that comes to mind for this home is 'perfect'. We will definitely be back as well as strongly recommend to anyone. The Coral Perch was a rare pearl find!

Our stay in the Coral Perch
We enjoyed our stay in the Coral Perch. The home is very well maintained and has plenty of linens, towels, and all appliances needed. The view of the canals is great, and we enjoyed watching an occasional passing boat. Grace was very informative and knows the area quite well. We appreciated her help. I would definately recommend this property, and hope to return again.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: After a career of service in School District Directorships, I decided to purchase and renovate this charming house, to receive guests, because of its natural setting and intersecting waterway views. I can relax here and flying into RSW makes it easier for family, friends and guests to visit. I've always enjoyed a non- condo complex, motel/hotel experience, when vacationing, and wanted to offer a similar experience to my guests.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Northwest:
My Real Estate Broker shared that, 'Cape Coral, is where the REAL people live'. I knew that I did not want condo living and did not want to be in an overly developed neighborhood in Cape Coral. This house met my expectations of natural setting, wide water views, yet close to everything. I have my choices to shop and enjoy all that SWF has to offer between Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda to the north and Sanibel and Naples to the south. When I walked in, I was immersed in the tropical scene of pool, lots of intersecting water views, swaying palms, exotic flora and fauna (in one afternoon, I spied snook, jackfish, sheephead and leaping mullet swimming around the dock and discovered the family of blue crab darting in and out of the oyster beds) and knew that I could create the type of retreat where guests are always welcome and can enjoy all the amenities of this special locale. I enjoy a project. so designed the renovation with guests needs, in mind. Catching up on relaxation (?) then the pocket doors between the sleeping quarters and the great room offer additional quiet and privacy. It is a vacation home that folks love to come back to, season after season.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Best fishing on this side of the globe! While the location abounds in 4 wide water intersecting views, natural beauty and privacy, ( who really wants to be packed into a development and have neighbors' pool conversations intruding onto your serenity?), it is so handy to the airport, shopping, dining, golfing, boating, and a broad variety of leisure time/vacation activities. This guest villa is just right for short term vacationers, returning vacationers who want a home base while looking for property to purchase, executives seeking R&R, authors, educators, fitness retreats... Folks who are passionate about fishing, boating, eco-tourism ,golfing, history buffs, independent study tours, authors' collaborations, English Language Immersion experiences, wellness program jumpstart weeks, Men's, Women's, Romantic Couples', friends getaways and more.
