About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Unwinding is easy at our remodeled, ADA-friendly 3-bedroom Cape Coral home, set on a waterfront gulf access canal.

HEATED POOL & PRIVATE DOCK: Take a dip in the home's enclosed (bug-free!) solar-heated pool, with gorgeous views of the canal. Or head to the private canal dock to sip drinks, watch the boats, and try your luck with one of our fishing poles.

If you visit in spring, be sure to pick a fresh mango from our tree—perfect for breakfast smoothies!

LIVING & DINING: Our open-concept living/dining/kitchen space is made for socializing. The living area features a sofa and 40" flat screen TV. Steps away, a sprawling, fully stocked kitchen boasts a range of appliances, granite countertops, and a three-person kitchen bar.

Start the day with coffees at the kitchen's breakfast nook, and end it with a feast at the eight-person dining table. Just add a cocktail from the fully stocked bar.

A spacious, covered lanai is home to an outdoor living area. Relax, dine, and toast at the eight-person dining table, then chat in the comfy outdoor lounge area cooled by a ceiling fan, and its own 40" flat screen TV.

BEDS & BATHS: Our house offers three bedrooms. The master has a king bed, 40" flat screen TV, ceiling fan, and an en-suite bathroom with a tub/shower combination and two-sink vanity.

The second bedroom has a queen bed and a 40" flat screen TV, and ceiling fan; the third a full-size bed, ceiling fan. These bedrooms share access to a newly remodeled bathroom with a walk-in shower.

ADA FEATURES: Both bathrooms feature ADA toilets, and because this home is all on one level with no stairs (except to the private dock), it's an excellent option for those with mobility concerns.

EXTRAS: Guests have access to the home's collection of kayaks, fishing poles, beach chairs, and game closet. Additional goodies include Direct TV, WI-FI, A/C, a washer/dryer, and garage parking for one car. You'll never feel chilly in the heated pool, which averages 80 degrees in winter and 90 degrees in summer.

ABOUT CAPE CORAL: With over 400 miles of glittering canals, Cape Coral is perfect for boating and fishing. Beachside relaxation is also easy to find—drive 30 minutes to reach the powdery soft sands of Sanibel Island, or 25 minutes to Fort Myers Beach.

Take a stroll around the historical museum and 21-acre botanical garden at Edison & Ford Winter Estates - less than 20 minutes away. Or book trips on Florida's nature-rich wetlands with Wooten's Everglades Airboat Tours, an 8-minute drive away.

Great dining options abound and festivals take place year-round, including the famous Cape Coral Bike Night in winter. Miami and Tampa are around 2.5 hours away, while Mickey and his famous friends are waiting for you at Walt Disney World 3 hours away.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay here. It felt like home. The covered patio with TV was great. We would definitely stay here again. The house was clean and stocked with everything you need for your stay. Location was accessible to everything, quick drive to Fort Myers Beach.

Beautiful home with alot of great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a property and it was the greatest experience. The owner answers any questions you have and the property comes with everything you need. Everything on this property was done top notch. The pool, lanai, and deck out by the canal are all great for spending time outside. Its nice and quiet so its easy to kick back and relax. The inside was just as good with comfy beds. The location is very convenient to several locations. Its central to Sanibel Island (my fav), Ft. Myers, and Punta Gorda. We will definitely stay here again!!

Everything You Need for a Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two-week stay at Waterside. The home is perfectly set up for outdoor living with a screened in Lanai with a great pool, dining area and lounge area with a couch, easy chair and flat screen TV. Chaise lounge chairs and a pub table are also located in the pool area. Sliding doors access the lanai from the dining room/kitchen area and living room area, with a triple door opening from the living room. In addition to the lanai, there is a patio and boat dock/lift on the adjacent canal. I think Michael will also rent his fishing boat if desired by the guests. The views from the lanai area are beautiful with the nicely landscaped yards and palm trees along the canal.

The recently remodeled kitchen is huge with everything you need from a Kuerig coffee maker to the tools you need to prepare a multi-course dinner.

There is a separate bar area where we were welcomed to use the beverages at the bar and a bar refrigerator in the kitchen.

The master bedroom is comfortable with a private sink area and a separate full bathroom shared with the third bedroom in a "Jack and Jill" type setup. This might be a drawback for a large group that uses all of the bedrooms, but not for us a s a couple. The second bedroom has a full private bathroom.

My wife and I enjoy reading on these "chill out" trips and there are many places to do so during the day. Our only concern is that the night lighting, especially in the master bedroom is not great for reading.

All-in-all, this is a great Florida vacation home and it is at the top of the list for our next visit to Cape Coral.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was clean, nicely furnished and quite comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything we could ask for. The pool area was clean. Even with cooler temperatures we managed to use the pool a couple times. We sat outside and watched tv and just enjoyed being able to relax. There were 4 adults in our group and we never felt crowded in this home. Mike was quick to respond when I emailed him.

We would definitely stay here again if we vacation in Cape Coral in the future.

Excellent communication with the owner, very helpful and accomodating when it came to rescheduling.

House was everything we had expected. Clean, fully stocked kitchen and a nice pool area.

House is located in a quiet residential area with friendly neighbors, perfect for a vacation with young children.

Would definately recommend for a stay!
