                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Our Cape retreat is our home away from home. It is our third property owned in Florida. Our families grew up in southwest Michigan and we are 3rd generation immigrants. Our family includes a grown daughter and son. We have been blessed by both being successful business owners. Now, we both are in upper administration and love to spend long weekends to regenerate in our tropical home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Southwest:
                  You will love our home if you are water people like us. We love to sit on the deck listening to the water and watching the beautiful Florida sunsets. You will hear the fish jumping and the quiet serenity of our wonderful neighborhood. It makes you feel like you are in your own little paradise.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This quiet retreat gives you the private setting with all of the shopping and beaches just a short drive away. Ft. Myers Beach, Sannibel Island, Captiva are all just 30 minutes away.
