3 Bedroom-2 bath pool home - Nothing Fancy

This fully-stocked comfortable 3-bedroom, 2-full bath vacation home is located in desirable SW Cape Coral. With two sitting areas and the enclosed pool area, there is room for entertaining, swimming, sunning, and dining out. Enjoy comfortable, vacation living at this pool home. This home features a great room with raised ceilings and pocket sliding glass doors, which open onto a lanai and pool. The large Master bedroom suite also opens to the pool area, and has a cozy pillow-topped king-size bed. The lanai as just been rescreened and the pool resurfaced. There is a brand new central a/c and heat. All rooms, as well as the lanai, have ceiling fans. All ceiling fans have been upgraded except for the living room. Backyard is fenced with a doggie door which leads from the lanai to the backyard. Bamboo flooring in all three bedrooms with newer tile floor in the remodeled kitchen.The rest of the house has been newer carpeting. Yard has recent updated landscaping. Refrigerator, washer, convection/microwave and stove are less than a year old.

This vacation home sleeps 8 persons comfortably using sofa bed and there is no need to bring anything! Due to the use of extra water and electricity for more than 5 people, there will be a fee of $25 per person per night for any amount over.

You’ll find everything you need already there, from the bed linens to the cookware, a grill, and even beach chairs; just grab favorite groceries from a number of grocery stores just minutes away and relax in peace.

The house is not one of the newer ones. It is about 20 yrs. old so please don't expect a newer bright and shiny house. This is a comfortable lived-in home. There are new bamboo floors in the three bedrooms with a newly renovated kitchen and the master bedroom and and 2nd bath are newly renovated. A 32' flatscreen TV in the great room; convection/microwave, new refrigerator, washer and stove add to your comfort. The heated pool has been resurfaced. Pool is heated via propane, which the renter is responsible for. The heater will not work because there is no propane in the tank. It must be ordered and paid for by the renter. Past renters have abused the heating of the pool that we use to pay for by setting the temperature to high settings. It is not a large hot tube - it is a pool.

This vacation home is only minutes from outlet malls, fishing, beaches, golf courses and beautiful nature preserves. Also this home is a short drive away from the Spring Training homes of both the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins. Also close by are the Edison/Ford homes.

If relaxation is what you seek drift away in your own private pool and enclosed lanai. This house is perfect for the family getaway or the newlyweds!

Quiet neighborhood, yet conveniently located to the beach and many shops; or even a day trip to Miami! Oh and the back yard is completely fenced in so bring Fido along and truly make it a family vacation!

No smoking. Propane tank for grill to be refilled by renter.

About Barbara Barnes

My husband and I live in NH. We bought this as a second home after we sold another home in Maine. We enjoy the quiet life but love to travel. We have two sons, two daughter-in-laws, a granddaughter and 3 grandsons. I love to antique and go to auctions which I do both in NH and FL. We have both retired so will be enjoying the home from Jan through mid-April away from the winter weather of the north.

Barbara Barnes purchased this house in 2004

Why Barbara Barnes chose Cape Coral

We choose to buy in Cape Coral after visiting the area for several years. The first few we stayed in Ft. Myers and then rented homes in Cape Coral. We have been all over Florida - east and west coast and inbetween. We decided we liked the west coast best and the Cape Coral area, so we purchased our future retirement home after viewing several other homes. The enclosed pool and lanai, the fenced in yard was another reason.

What makes this house unique

The home is in a quiet neighborhood. It is a corner lot which gives us a little more space than the rest. You have the benefit of using the pool and having privacy or you can venture to Cape Coral beach 15 mins away. If you'd rather have a larger beach, Ft. Myers beach and Sanibel and Captiva are within a half hour's drive. There is all kinds of shopping nearby with a Publix super market and Target within walking distance. The home is a 3-hr. drive from either Disney or Miami and 2 hr. drive to Tampa. We love going to Shark Valley in the Everglades which is about 2 hrs. Also, we love to hit the FleaMasters Fleamarket on the weekends. You can find just about anything there from vegetables to paintings.

Felt Like Home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house for over 3 months while my house was being worked on. I never felt any stress about staying at someone else's house. It always felt like home. It isn't fancy, but it is comfortable. Much more important.

Barbara was very easy to work with. To say the house is well stocked is an understatement. There is one, if not two of everything

Thank you Barbara for sharing your home with us (and our dog). The property was very comfortable and relaxing, we were very well pleased with all that you had to offer. It was so nice to be able to swim in our own pool. Even the pool cleaning people where very nice & courteous (please be sure to let them know). Barbara you where awesome to work with. You answered any questions we had in a very timely manner. Cape Coral has so many amenities to offer in shopping, entertainment, etc... This was our first time using VRBO and we couldn't have picked a much nicer place to stay. We will consider your home for any future Florida trips. Thank you once again.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Lori, for your kind words. I try very hard to address any issues in a timely manner. We welcome wonderful renters such as yourselves and their pets. Thank you also for the kind words for our pool care people. We have used their services for many years and have recommended them to friends in Cape Coral who are also happy with them. I will pass your words on to them. Thank you for leaving the house so clean as reported by our cleaning service. It is really appreciated. We love Cape Coral and are very happy we bought there. We certainly hope you will keep us in mind for any future visits to Cape Coral; we would be more than happy to welcome you (and your dog) back.

Moved to Cape

  • 5 of 5

Our family moved to Cape Coral and found this home to rent until we found a home to buy. We loved the fenced yard with dog door & pool was larger than most! Loved sitting on lanai watching and listening to the storms roll in. Neighbors are friendly, good safe neighborhood to walk in. Close to Veterans, Publix, loses, & Target are within a mile! Landlord was very responsive when the fridge was struck by lightening / in getting a new one delivered. We'd recommend to anyone!

Beautiful vacation home. ...

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful vacation home. Very spacious and extremely clean. The pool is great! Very refreshing and private. Located in a nice quiet neighborhood, but only a short drive to the beach. The house is supplied with just about everything you will need. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking.

Excellent location. Great...

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location. Great value for the price. Much more comfortable than a hotel. Being able to bring my dog to use the large fenced in yard was a huge benefit. The pool was great for the family to enjoy. Can't beat the location for being easy to find. This made driving around Cape Coral and Lee County a pleasant experience. Very nice and quiet neighborhood. Much more desireable than staying in a hotel.
