The perfect place to relax in the warmth and serenity of Cape Coral! This 2,500 sq.ft, beautifully remodeled, waterfront home is on a quiet cul-de-sac street. It is a three bedroom, two bath private home with direct gulf access and is on a canal just 10 minutes from Redfish Cove. It is completely furnished.

The master bathroom has a walk-in shower, 2 person Jacuzzi tub, and double sinks. Second bedroom with queen bed shares a bath with third bedroom with two twin beds.

The private, fenced-in backyard offers many amenities. Under the 2,000 sq. ft screened-in lanai is a beach entry, gunite pool. The jetted spa tub flows into the heated pool. There is plenty of area both in and out of the sun. The private dock on the gulf access canal runs the width of the property.

About John O'Leary

We have always loved the ocean - swimming, boating, fishing, sunbathing. After coming to the area for our anniversary, we knew we wanted a home here. Thank you for checking out our property. John and Alison

John O'Leary purchased this house in 2010

Why John O'Leary chose Cape Coral

Very quite neighborhood with little traffic yet close to everything from shopping, entertainment and restaurants to boating and fishing in the Gulf.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comment left in house guest book - thank you so much for letting us stay at your gorgeous home. We all loved the kitchen very much, we enjoyed cooking in it every day. Every room in the house has all the supplies you would need, that was great! The master bedroom was very comforting, as was the whole house. The spa and pool were AWESOME!!! We stayed in the spa til 1 am every night because we just couldn't force ourselves to get out. The weather was just perfect throughout the whole week. We enjoyed cooking on the grill and eating dinner outside with am warm breeze blowing our way. We hope to return sometime soon"

Fantastic experience! House was GREAT and as pictured. Owner was VERY supportive and available

  • 5 of 5

Just great. Fantastic location both on the water as well as local shopping and attractions. Boat was just perfect for going up and down the canals, we loved this even more than the big water. Everyone here is so friendly and waving when going by other houses or boats. The owner, John, was just fantastic. Had just a few minor repairs needed while here (button on the hot tub), and he had it fixed the next day AND scheduled around our convienance. Pool is cleaned every Friday and is sparking, even the pool guy was super friendly and quick. Using homeaway was another great experience, very professional and efficient.

Great place for a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at this property the first week of October 2016. Although we were there when Hurricane Matthew hit the eastern side of the state, we were minimally affected. The first thing that we noticed when we walked in was how spacious the house is. The master suite is terrific – lots of room for us to spread out, storage space, a really nice bathroom supplied with plenty of linens and towels. The only negative I have is that I think the master bed should be king size, not queen. The kitchen had all the cooking supplies we needed in terms of pots, pans, plates, utensils and the laundry room is very convenient off the kitchen with what looked like a brand new washer. The pool was so nice, and, oh, the pool spa! The first couple of days the pool spa did not get warm although the jets worked. We called the house owner, who is very responsive. There had been a power outage while we were out exploring, and he told us how to check the breaker box. It had been tripped, so we turned it back on, and the pool spa worked like a charm. We did not use the boat but it was still nice to sit outside on the dock overlooking the canal. My son and husband fished from the boat dock and caught a few catfish which we released back into the water. We ate almost all our meals at the house – it was so relaxing. We used the gas grille for a few meals and it worked great. My son and his girlfriend who live in Fort Myers joined us for almost every dinner and also enjoyed the pool and spa with us. The lanai is a great feature and we ate some of our meals there overlooking the pool and canal. Although we did not have sleepover guests, there is plenty of room for them. It’s a nice, quiet neighborhood and convenient to grocery stores. Fort Myers, Naples, Sanibel Island, and Captiva Island are a reasonable drive away. I highly recommend this property and would definitely stay there again given the opportunity.

Beautiful, well-maintained home!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great! The owner laid out all of the necessary instructions and information. The pool and spa were AMAZING! We used them every day. There was a small electrical problem, but the owner quickly saw to it that an electrician come out and make the necessary repairs. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area. We'd definitely stay again!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience! The house itself was really nice and also really well stocked with most anything one might need for meal prep, paper goods, laundry, as well as hair dryers, and even a flat iron! The owner was very accessible for questions and advice. In fact, he seemed genuinely concerned about ensuring a good stay. It's also important to mention that the pool at this property is exceptional. We chose to also rent the boat for the week, which I highly recommend. The community itself was also great, easy to get around, lots of things to do, restaurants, but not touristy. Overall, this is a great vacation property for boating and swimming!

Nice vacation home on a canal

  • 4 of 5

We just got home from a week at this home. We have 3 kids (9, 7, and 3). The house was spacious and the pool was nice. It has a garage and a nice dock for fishing. The shower in master bedroom was very large and as well as the master bedroom. There were some tiny ants crawling around the bathroom counter and kitchen counters, but it wasn't bothersome to us. We visited nearby Sanibel and that was lovely as well. It was about a 25-30 minute drive. Overall a very nice trip.

Owner's Response: Very glad you had a nice trip, we hear all the time from families like yours how family friendly the home is. Families always enjoy the pool, spa, and fishing from the dock. Very sorry about the ants wish you let us know we would have taken care of them right away pest control company has them taken care of as of this reply. Thank you, John and Alison

Great home fabulous for families with kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home! It was spacious and had everything we needed, spent most of our trip actually at the house playing in the pool and spending time with the kids. Was perfect for relaxing , bonding ,and taking a break from the real world! We would love to come back and would recommend to our friends and family. Sanibel is just a short drive away with clear waters and tons of shells . thank you for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: It is wonderful to hear you enjoyed the home, we find ourselves doing the same many days in the pool, spa, and sitting at the dock. You are right, Sanibel beaches are beautiful. I hope in addition to the shells you were able to pick a few of the plentiful sand dollars from the waters.
