Property description

We welcome you to enjoy your time away at 'Stillwaters Escape' our 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2800 square foot, direct Gulf access canal property vacation home in beautiful Southwest Florida. This home will comfortably sleep 6. New appliances and a well-stocked kitchen await you for when you should choose to eat in. Or, grill those steaks and fresh fish outside on the lanai with the propane bbq. Eat poolside or take your meals and snacks down to the tiki hut dockside. Perhaps company's coming for dinner - no problem. You can entertain inside around the conference sized dining room table. So many dining options right on your own property! We love the little 'breakfast bistro' table nestled in one special corner of the kitchen area. With wifi, we can check messages from anywhere in the house or around the pool, but that is one favorite spot. Wishing to stay 'plugged in' or not, there is a land line which offers free long distance calling within the United States and to Canada too! Along with wifi and long distance calls, our Century Link provider, provides a variety of cable channels for a variety of your interests. A channel guide is provided for your convenience. There is a 50' tv in the living room and a 50' tv in the master bedroom. The newly appointed living room furnishings are so comfortable and make for a very relaxing quiet time, reading time, movie time or 'me' time. The house is supplied with books, puzzles, cards & games and even a games room with a pool table. So any pool sharks out there - you'll love that room! Speaking of'll find one at the bottom of the oversized swimming pool! Yes, you can swim with the sharks and live to tell about it! Of course this one is made from ceramic tile and just lays there etched into the pool floor. The whole lanai area is spacious and user-friendly. The pool faces south-west and you can start enjoying the sun fairly early in the morning and enjoy the most beautiful sunsets at days' end - either from the lanai or down by the tiki hut dockside. Calm, silent and breathtaking. A feature I love is that two of the bathrooms are poolside accessible - very convenient. The master bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to the pool area. The master has beautiful old-world style new bedroom furnishings - king sized bed, tv, dresser, night stands and rocker/lounger/reclining chair. Furnishings in all the bedrooms are new and each mattress is new & very comfortable. Real pretty & comfortable linens as well. The master bedroom has an ensuite and that is one of the bathrooms that is poolside accessible. One of the guest bedrooms has a canopy queen sized bed & dresser and the other guest room has a double bed with access to the bathroom from that bedroom. That bathroom can also be accessed from one of the main hallways. The laundry room is indoors - its own room - which is another special feature. You do not have to go into the garage to do laundry as is common in Florida. The ebb & flow and spaciousness of the home make it so nice to share with children or other family members & friends. Two of the bedrooms are on one side of the house and the master with ensuite on the other. Great for privacy and having one's own space while still being together under one roof making and sharing those memories - those oh so special moments in time. But of course, if it's just the two of you, that works just fine! What else should I say? I still have 6708 characters left for describing this property! Florida is so beautiful. There are tons of things to do and see no matter where you stay! But if you've been thinking of coming down, do it! We chose this home & location for many reasons - and it was a long, thought out process! We looked at lots of different properties. Some of the reasons we chose this particular place was location - dead-end side street so only local traffic, making it safer and more comfortable as a place to bring family; for the curb appeal, my goodness - it is so lovely! Such beautiful landscaping - plus I got a magnolia tree for my birthday which now proudly stands out front and my husband planted a bunch of palm trees in the back he is so delighted with -also, the size & layout of the home and pool & pool area; the dock & tiki hut; location along the canal; direct access to the Gulf of Mexico - like only minutes to open water then head on out to where the dolphins play! What else? Ease of access to all the great beaches - Sanibel, Captiva, Ft. Myers Beach - you can go there by boat! You can go canal cruising and get all over the place, even boat over to many lovely restaurants. You can swim, fish, go shelling, see dolphins, eat, play, relax, do nothing! You can do whatever you want whenever you want in the privacy of your own home. Oh yes, and we have a great property manager. A local fellow only a phone call away. We're in Canada so while you could definitely call us, we couldn't be there right away! You should visit Cape Coral at least once - then you can say you did it. If you're like us though, your first visit probably won't be your last! So there you go. There are other things I love about this house, property, location and in general Cape Coral, but I think you should check it out for yourselves then tell me what you love! So, check our calendar and see if your dates match up with the availability of the house, then send us a quick request. VRBO makes this so easy, doesn't it? You are more than welcome to come stay at Stillwaters Escape, but whatever you decide, give Cape Coral a try! Blessings to you and yours! xx

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband Darrell and I (Bonnie) are the ones in the middle of the picture I chose, flanked on either side by our beautiful daughter-in-law and most handsome son. They live in Australia! They are a pastor couple there. We have another most handsome son that lives in our province of Manitoba, Canada, where we live, and works with us at our agricultural-based rural family business. We have two other beautiful daughters, both who live in our province - one married with three children - all boys!! and one single who currently attends a local college/university where she will shortly graduate with a BA in music - then Nashville here she comes! Our married daughter has a most handsome hard-working husband and together they are raising the brightest, most adorable, incredibly endearing three little boys you could ever hope to meet! Ya, my family is a big part of my world! Darrell & I have vacationed in Florida since our honeymoon 29 years ago and acted upon the dream we had to purchase property there some day. 'Some day' came last summer. And now we are delighted to share that vacation home with you!

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Southeast:
We looked long and hard for that perfect place and have found what is perfect for us. Check it out and you may find that it is perfect for your vacation too!
