About the property

4 Bdrm, 3 Full Baths with panoramic views.

Live the dream in the vacation home with the UNBEATABLE VIEW from every room! This west facing home sits at the intersection of two extra wide,200 foot canals providing SPECTACULAR long water views and fabulous sunsets every night.

Spend your days relaxing on the lanai, swimming in the heated pool, biking, walking in a beautiful neighborhood and fishing or boating from your own private dock. Watch dolphins, rays and fish play in the water from the comfort of your lawn chair. We just added solar heat to accompany our electric pool heat!

The perfect day doesn’t end there---watch the sunset beyond the panorama of majestic royal palms while cooking a steak on the gas grill and sipping your favorite beverage. Then, enjoy the peaceful, moonlit evening by taking an after dinner swim in the heated pool.

Once inside, you'll find spacious, light filled rooms with panoramic views of the water from every room! You'll love the sliding doors that disappear into the walls, opening the master bedroom, living room, family room and even the dining room to the screened lanai.

With 2200 square feet of living space, this split bedroom layout is perfect for couples, families or friends traveling together. The master suite with full bath is on one side of the home with the living room, dining room, kitchen, family room and laundry separating it from the other 3 bedrooms and bathrooms. The home has an open floor plan for entertaining, yet plenty of privacy for all.

The master has a king sized bed, 1 guest room has a king bed and the two guest rooms can be set up with 4 twin beds or 2 kings. This house sleeps 8 in the bedrooms. Add 2 additional portable king mattress and 2 twin size bed/couches and the home will comfortably sleep your entire group.

This is truly a home, not just a vacation rental, furnished with everything you could possibly need for a lovely, fun filled vacation! You'll only need to bring your swimsuit!

Boaters will love the 2 minute, around the corner, no bridge access to the river. It’s a quick boat or car ride to Sanibel, Captiva and the Gulf of Mexico with lots of fun park and restaurant stops in between. Ask owner for details on boat rental

About Sue Larson

Bruce is still a practicing attorney in Minneapolis and is an avid waterskier. We live on a large lake here and love all water activities and have always loved Florida for the water and weather. We accelerated the timeline of owning a retirement home in Florida after Sue battled (and survived) two different cancers over a four year time period. We learned the lesson of living our dreams now! We'd like others to live their vacation dreams in our new vacation home!

Sue Larson purchased this house in 2010

Why Sue Larson chose Florida South West

When we were looking for a vacation home to buy, we checked this home out on Google Maps. One glimspe of the view of 200 foot intersecting canals and close proximity to the river and and we booked a flight to Cape Coral the next day to make an offer! We are excited to share our vacation dream home with you and know you will enjoy it just as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

There is a different, equally stunning sunset every night, it's the highlight of the day! If you are a fishing enthusiast you will enjoy cathcing large fish right off the dock and boaters are just minutes away from Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach

Everything needed for a relaxing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family trip where we went with the flow. We had never been to the area, so just planned on spending a lot of time in the pool or on the beach, or driving around and finding new experiences. The floor plan and amenities were perfect for our family of 6, and there was enough to keep all the kids entertained, whether they were kayaking, fishing, swimming, playing games, or doing puzzles. We definitely overpacked!

The house is also not far from Sanibel and Captiva, which were great places to spend the day if it was raining in Ft Myers, as their forecast was always sunny on the couple rainy days while we were there.

We met up with my family from Norway, who were staying in a home not owned by Sue. Two days before we were leaving, my cousin called to say he had been informed their home had been damaged and they could not stay, and he had nothing else available for them. I reached out to Sue to make sure we were still ok, and she let me know all was well, since she was actually there right now, and she went above and beyond in finding a home that was available for my cousins. She made all the phone calls, and did the research for us, and found a home just kitty corner from this one. Fortunately, their owner did put them up in another home after all, but I was just blown away by the attentiveness and customer service we received from Sue.

Our first full day there, the neighbors even brought us fresh picked mangoes from their tree! We had a wonderful time, and will definitely be back again someday.

Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

We were more than satisfied with our stay at this property. The home is very well laid out and has ample space for kids and adults. The bedrooms are nicely sized and the bed layout worked perfectly for our group. The kitchen has been nicely updated and has every appliance and kitchen item imaginable for use. We loved the kayaks and the neighborhood is very beautiful, quiet, and a great place to ride the bikes provided. But, the absolute highlight of this home is the beautiful wide and intersecting canal view from the lanai and pool area. Sunsets are stunning and sitting on the dock by the water was the most peaceful and beautiful part of our stay.

Sue is a pleasure to work with and we had no trouble whatsoever with accessing the home when we arrived. It was extremely clean and well stocked. Thanks so much for allowing us the opportunity to stay in your home. We hope to come back again soon!

Totally awesome place! The whole family loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoy our stay at your home. All the kids loved the pool and the big tv and more than adequate space for them play in 2 living room areas!. The air conditioning worked perfectly keeping us cool on those mid 90 degree days. The location on the canal is beautiful and gives more of a feel of being on a wide river then on some narrow city canal. My 3 year old told us all the way back to Connecticut that he wants to go back and stay at the "Florida house" and not go back to CT. The house was also fully stocked with accessories including fishing poles, tackle , bikes, pool toys and kayaks. Wich made staying there an absolute pleasure! The home is decorated delightfully And all the furniture it very comfortable.The Kitchen was awesome and had everything we needed for us adults and for the kids. Beds were very comfy also. We all agreed that we would love to rent this home again and it will be our first choice when we plan our next stay to Cape Coral ,FL! Thank you for wonderful accommodations!

The property is beautiful and has everything you need for an amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to one of Sue's houses. If you have any questions or issues Jim responds immediately and then you just relax and enjoy what Cape Coral and the Ft Myers area has to offer. If you've never been in the area before Sue has created a folder provided information for all the activities available. I highly recommend staying at any of Sue's properties. She is the best hostess in the Cape!

We travelled as a family of 7 to this wonderful, beautifully furnished and decorated home. As soon as

we walked in - it was a family 'WOW' seeing the foyer stone entrance and the Tommy Bahama furniture.

The kitchen was updated with beautiful wood cabinets, granite, glass backsplash and high end Stainless

Appliances. We found the over 2100 sq. ft. great as we never felt we were 'on top of each other' -

having the extra family room and large outside patio with dining table/pool and dock added to that feeling. The great weather - quiet and safe location - and great Restaurants closeby made this the best

overall Vacation for all of us. We were not quite ready to even leave - the grandchildren especially. We

would like to return. The Owners of this home as well as their other properties deserve a 5 STAR RATING as they are the consummate entrepreneurs.

they are the Consummate Entrepreneurs of running a Rental Company
