Private Homes, Southeast house description

Live the dream of this coastal décor vacation home with an UNBEATABLE VIEW from every room!

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 large, private dock. Watch dolphins, rays, fish and the resident manatee play in the 250 foot wide canal from the comfort of your lawn chair.

The perfect day doesn’t end there--- enjoy the evening sunset while cooking a steak on the gas grill and sipping your favorite beverage. Then, take an after dinner swim under the moonlight in our heated pool.

Once inside, you’ll find very spacious, light-filled rooms with panoramic views of the water from almost every room. You'll love the entire wall of sliding doors leading to the screened lanai and the sliders from the master bedroom to the pool.

The layout is perfect for one couple, families or friends traveling together. The master suite is on one side of the home, one guest room is on the opposite side of the house and the third bedroom is on the other side of the home with the living room, dining room and kitchen in between. Privacy for all!

The master bedroom suite is HUGE, almost 300 square feet and features a king size bed, bathroom, 2 closets, (one a walk in) and a 110 square foot private sitting area. There are 2 guest rooms which can be set up with a king bed in each or 2 twins in each room. Use the queen pull out couch and additional air mattress and you can comfortably sleep 10.

The home features high speed internet and free domestic long distance phone calls.

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!

It’s a quick boat or car ride to Sanibel or Captiva and the Gulf of Mexico with lots of fun park and restaurant stops in between.

Don’t miss out on staying in the vacation home with the spectacular view!

                    This is the second year my husband and I rented this property. The home has all you could want for a relaxing vacation. The view is spectacular, the pool is heated, the area is quiet and yet a short drive away are great restaurants, shopping and all kinds of fun activities. We will be returning next year and hope to continue.

                    I just returned from spending a week here with 5 adults and 3 kids under the age of 5. What a place! The in-ground pool kept them entertained for hours. We also rented a pontoon which we docked in the backyard. We fished from the boat and dock and grilled our fish on the killer grill. It was hard to believe that we were dining outside in January! This house is extremely well equipped from DVDs, maps and local guide books to flashlights, bikes, kayaks, and fishing gear. I appreciated the washer and dryer and not coming home with a load of laundry to do. If you're traveling with small children, this house is super easy to baby proof. The owner was very accommodating asking us how we wanted the bedrooms set up. Even the neighbors are very friendly. If you stay here, be sure to introduce yourself to George, the bulldog a few doors away. If you are considering in renting this house, you can rest assured, this is THE PLACE! I'd stay here in a minute!

                    We just returned from 1 week at the property. The house was as advertised and had everything we needed for a family of four (two adults and two kiddos) to enjoy the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area. The house was clean and had all the amenities one could wish for. We didn't see any manatees but there were ALWAYS dolphin around. The kayaks were wonderful and the backyard was great. We broke in a brand new high-end BBQ. One of our kiddos is a toddler and as houses go it was pretty kid friendly. There are no staircases although there are a few "single" steps around the house (e.g., kitchen is raised one step). The house is not cluttered - decorated tastefully with a beach feel. We would highly recommend the property. The management/rental agent was easy to deal with and super helpful.

                    I debated about giving this 4 or 5 stars. However when I considered what I got for the money including kayaks, bicycles, fishing poles, movies, etc, it is an excellent value. We saw a least one dolphin about 5 houses out in the canal nearly every morning. I caught only 1 catfish after several days of fishing with shrimp & minnows. Also netted 2 large crabs under the dock. Plenty of coconuts in the water to cut open too. The bathrooms are a bit dated but overall the house has a nice beach feel about it. I would recommend staying here to a friend.

                    We arrived as two couples in the great house in Cape Coral. The canal view was amazing! The house gave us enough space to feel very comfortable for the whole 3 weeks. The kitchen and the living room were well prepared with all utensils we need. The bedrooms and the masterbedroom were very comfortable and big enough. We spend a lot of the time at the pool and at the dock. We saw two dolphins in the morning while having breakfast, it was amazing! The house is nearby a german bakery, we went there with the bikes which were availabe. We drove also through the very quiet neighbourhood. The applied kajaks were very great, we drove with them on the channel near the house. By car you can arrive the big Wal Mart and also a lot of other supermarkets, everything is reachable in about 5 minutes by car. The beaches on Sanibel Island are also not far away, only 30 minutes by car. Furthermore is was a highlight to see the firework at the Cape Coral Bridge of the 4th of July from our house! We could recommend this house for all people who are looking for relaxtion and comfort in their holiday. If we visit Cape Coral once again, we would come back in this house!

                    My family and I spent a little over a week at this home to celebrate my 2 year old daughters birthday and are already planning our return trip!!! The pictures are accurate in terms of layout but whats important to mention is that this vacation rental FEELS like a "beachy" home and the views from almost every room are simply AMAZING! This definitely instilled vacation from the moment we arrived. The home is decorated with a coastal decor theme and is very functional. My husband, myself, 2 year old daughter, and 78yo mother were quite comfortable in this 3 bedroom home. What I particularly enjoyed was the open floor plan and view from the main living area. The home sits on a 250 foot canal and there is an entire wall of sliding doors leading to the screened lanai with beautiful views from the living room, sitting area, dining room, and kitchen. The views ARE truly amazing. The master bedroom suite is HUGE, with plenty of storage, king size bed, and private sitting area with sliders to the lanai as well (perfect spot for my daughters crib). My mom stayed in one of the other bedrooms and was more than comfortable with access to her own bathroom. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the lanai and swimming in the spacious pool. My daughter loved it! We have family in Cape Coral and the house is ideal for entertaining. We had several large parties and spent time grilling, fishing, swimming, and most of all... relaxing and enjoying family! The neighborhood is also quiet and my husband and I took a daily morning walk with our daughter. We have rented several homes in the past however this home was a winner for our family. It had everything we needed and is very close to Publix, Walmart, and Sweet Bay... great restaurants too! I would highly recommend this home to family and friends and will definitely rent this house again. Thanks Sue! You were great to work with!

                    We stayed on this property for one week in October and really enjoyed it. The location is really great, in a quiet neighborhood, close to shops and restaurants. The house is equipped with everything you need. The pool has a nice size and there is also toys for the pool. The dock is amazing with table and chairs and we enjoyed sitting there for most of our time. The manager Sue is friendly, helpful and responds quickly to our e-mails :) We will definetely be back

                    We spent three weeks in this home and everything was perfect! The house is located in a quiet friendly street , perfect for an early jogging or an evening promenade by bicycle with the kids. The master bed is absolutely a Dream, you will spend great and comfy nights. Wherever you are in the house you will have a wonderful view. Each morning we took our breakfast with my husband on the deck, a magic place we all miss a lot. Having the two kayaks and above all bikes is a real advantage when you consider that the cost for a 15 days rental bike is 130 USD. My kids had great times with the kayaks and because the canal is huge we can easily watch them. Of course we all enjoyed the awsome pool. It is our second summer in Cape Coral and we can say that this house is located in the best part of town. The owner is very reactive and always ready to help and to make your vacation enjoyable. At this end, we all thank you Sue for our magical vacations ! Sure if we return in Cape Coral we will definitely rent this house!

                    We arrived late in the evening (or morning 2.30 am) and had easy access into the house, everything was neat and ready for us to get some sleep after 26 hours non-stop travels to get to Cape Coral. The next morning we first dove into the pool and went to the Publix and Wallmart that we close by to stock up on supplies. We also enjoyed the Kajaks and the two bicycles that came with the rental. The view of the canal in the morning with a good cup of coffee was our every day morning ritual. Hardly anybody ventures out side in the properties adjacent to the canal so we were lucky with a quiet view and surroundings. Al in all we had a great stay and are probably coming back here in the future.

                    When we arrived, we were amazed how well the pictures represented the property! After a quick trip to the grocery store, everything we needed was at our fingertips! We spent time at Fort Myers Beach and Captiva during the day, and came home to relax poolside. The kayaks, bicycles, and fishing poles helped pass the time for those that had more energy than the rest of us! I would highly recommend this property. In the future, I am going to have to book my trip well in advance, as this one will certainly have a lot of repeat visitors in the future. Neighbors were friendly, only wish we had more time to visit with them!
