About Crystal Bakker

We wanted to find an area that was on water with easy access to many activities. Golf, kayaking and fishing are some of our favorite activities.

Crystal Bakker purchased this house in 2011

Why Crystal Bakker chose Cape Coral

We love the water!! With 400 miles of canals in Cape Coral and direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. . . we couldn't resist this area!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really liked this house. We spent a lot of time by the pool, and the house had plenty of space. The proximity to area attractions is a major plus. Within 30 - 40 minutes, you can be at Sanibel and Pine Island, Ft. Myers Beach, The Henry Ford & Thomas Edison houses, Imaginarium for kids,etc. The Cape Harbor Marina, Rumrunners, and some neat shops are across the street, which is a nice convenience. I would rate this house a 5 star because of the amenities it has and proximity to attractions.

was very impressed by the layout of the property. very clean. spacious. my expectations were over met. my first time rental. I wish I could stay longer but mine was very short stay. I would request this property next time I come to fortmyers. I would also recommend this property for families with both young and also older children.

Awesome house!! Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! We had 9 of us here and there was always plenty of room! The master bedroom and bathroom was impressive in size!! I spent a lot of time sitting on the huge porch. There is tons of fish always around the dock to look at, morning time was the best to see them because of the position of the sun. We did get to see a dolphin in the canal on our last night there! We would absolutely rent this house again. Oh and I recommend eating at Fords garage, the restaurant is very cool if you're into cars.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of calling Cape Chiquita home for 8 weeks. We thoroughly enjoyed the home, the surroundings, the pool and the gorgeous weather.

The house was clean, the kitchen was fully stocked, the pool was a delight. The house is very spacious and accommodated two couples very easily with plenty of privacy. The location can't be beat! Right across from Cape Harbour and all it's amenities, restaurants, bars, shops. Crystal is a delight to work with. She quickly responds to any questions that come up and is just a delightful person. The bikes and kayaks were a wonderful plus as well. We kayaked and ended up having the company of dolphins and manatees several times. What a treat that was! We would (and have) recommended this home. It is a wonderful home away from home - spacious but cozy, clean and perfect location. Now just book it and enjoy!!!!

Thank you for letting us rent your property. We loved the location. IT was great area to take walks, bike ride and kayak! WE loved being across from the Marina! We could easily stroll over there to see the boats, shop, grab coffee and eat out at the restaurants! We found the accommodations to be a great place to relax and enjoy each other! Thanks again. We will be back!
