About Kevin and Sheila

We visited Cape Coral on a family vacation and fell in love with the city and it's friendly atmosphere The location of can not be is minutes away from many beautiful beaches, wildlife, all kinds of shopping and tons of activities like kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and boat excursions.

Why Kevin and Sheila chose Florida South West

Location, location, location!!! The property has direct gulf access in a matter of minutes. It is ideally located to all types of amenities in Fort Myers and Cape Coral. It is a short 20 minute drive from the Fort Myers airport, Sanibel and Fort Myers beaches.

What makes this house unique

Relax by the canal under the tropical tiki hut, or swim in the soothing water of the solar heated water pool. Walk, bike or drive 1/2 mile to the nature preserve and rent kayaks to explore the Florida outdoors. Or go a few blocks to shopping, restaurants or movie theatre. Grocery stores only blocks away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

since the first time we saw it! It was everything we always look for in a vacation home and then some!!We spent most of our time here in the pool or relaxing by the lanai. The kitchen is a chef's dream, so beautiful and open. The bar family room and pool table area is so spacious for entertaining. All the furnishings and decorations throughout the house are a harmonious blend of beauty and good taste! Thank you so much for your hospitality and for making our stay a very pleasant one. It was a joy dealing with both of you ! We are looking forward to our next stay - but next time it will have to be for more than the nine days we stayed because they went by way too fast! We will recommend you guys to everyone we know!

great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year we have stayed with Kevin and Sheila. Each year their villa has been just as fresh as the year before! The house has great attention to detail. The decor has gorgeous homely features, as well as maps and literature of local areas. We loved the spacious kitchen, which had everything needed. Kevin and Sheila also allow the guests to use chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, wagon, and pool toys to be taken to the beach. We will be back again.

Just like everyone else....amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Just a beautiful house. Everything was just as listed and had everything imaginable one may need on vaca. The tiki hut, the pool, the kayaks, the fishing poles, bikes, beach equipment, kitchen furnishings, central AC, garage door opener, not to mention the owner called to check in and see how things were going, which to me, sadly is very unusual nowadays for someone to actually show interest in a "customer". We will absolutely rent again next year and miss it already. By far the best vacation house we have ever stayed at. Thank you Kevin and Sheila.

Absolutely fantastic. Extremely well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property. My 10 and 12 yr old boys wanted to stay here and enjoy the pool, and the pool table, rather than return to Orlando to finish our vacation at the parks. The Owners have been so generous with all the equipment they have provided for the renters use. We enjoyed the bikes and the kayaks the game console and the DVD's. We would have no hesitation in returning here. We had a great time at this property.
