Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Home (Sleeps 6+)

The best way to describe the home is the 5 Star Reviews. While I strive to make you feel like its home while your here, many guests speak of more than they expected. Also keep in mind that as a VRBO listing I do not have the option to select what review to keep or delete. Every review that any guest has ever posted is here since the property was listed on VRBO.

So here is your private home in desirable southwest Cape Coral. 120 feet frontage on salt water gulf access canal with dock, boat lift and electric heated pool. Over 1800 square feet under air includes all that southwest Florida has to offer. The pictures are current and tell the story except that reviews say its better than the pictures. Pets welcome. Property is located south of Cape Coral Parkway and west of Skyline Blvd. Smoking is allowed outside only including lanai pool deck.

Amenities include, computer workstation with printer copier scanner, high speed internet, cable TV (including outside on lanai) and telephone service. Video library with more than 3 dozen titles including Disney. Game cube and XBox.

beautiful home, comfortable -- owner thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

My family loves Cape Coral. We rented over Christmas and felt so comfortable at this property. John checked in to be sure all was well, and was so pleasant on the phone. He thought of everything at the house. Even spices for our cooking! We love the neighborhood and love that there were restaurants close by (driving distance). The pool was heated, warm and great to be in. I highly recommend renting this property. We enjoyed every day, and didn't want to leave! Thanks for a great rental John!

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

First the bad wish John would have told us there was one screen missing out back we chased our dog for the 1st hour.

But after that everything was better than we expected. The pictures do not do the home justice. It well furnished and stocked with everything you could need other than your food and clothes. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. The house is big ( wish the main TV was bigger) and enough room for the wife and I and our 2 grown kids and 2 dogs. The heated pool in November a big plus. I am a large man and wish the master had a King bed there is room for it. There are plenty of stores nearby if you need anything and lots of good restaurant's as well. My nephews even caught some fish off the dock out back with the fishing gear in the garage. (Publix up the street has bait shrimp). My Aunt lives in the area and we visit her often and will stay again according to the wife. The price vs 2 hotel room with 2 dogs well worth it.

Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful lanai and backyard, so relaxing! The home is clean, spacious, comfortable and had everything we could have needed. Quiet neighborhood, dolphins in the canal (!), stores a short drive away. We found it a perfect and reasonably priced home base for trips to Fort Myers for a sunset cruise and Sanibel for dinner.

Did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

The home was great, the location was close to anywhere we wanted to go, minutes to the CC Yacht Club and beach, Tarpon Point Marina, Cape Harbor, numerous restaurants, and less than 20 minutes to FMB. Couldn't have asked more for the accommodations... felt very much at home!! Enjoyed the pool, fishing off the dock, watching boats going out, and just enjoyed the feel of being at home in paradise!
