The house is ideally situated right off the main coastal street of McGregor Boulevard which runs parallel to the Caloosahatchee River in a peaceful and quiet setting right beside the Whiskey Creek Country Club. Just a short drive from Southwest Florida International Airport and the beautiful beaches of Sanibel/Captiva and Fort Myers Beach. If you like to eat out, most restaurants are just 5 minutes as well as conveniences, banks, groceries, movie theaters and entertainment. The Barbara Mann Performing Arts Hall has fabulous Broadway-style shows and the famous Edison & Ford Winter Estates are both just a short drive away. The nature lover will adore this house, I am an avid birdwatcher and everyday the tropical backyard garden is just singing with beautiful birds and many, many butterflies. The tropical garden surrounding the house is lush and full of beautiful flowers. We have Royal Palm trees, a huge mango (delicious fruit is available for picking all summer) and a small fig tree too. Also, the famous J.N. Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Lakes Park are both very close by for nature lovers and family fun.
