About Mike and Patty
Hello! We are Mike and Patty, the proud owners of Cape Escape and we would like to share with you why our family absolutely loves our time here at Cape Escape. We are a couple who prides ourselves getting to know our guests and building repeat business. It is our pleasure getting to know our guests and helping them enjoy our home (we have outstanding ratings of over 26 reviews and counting!). Cape Escape is family friendly in the affluent Cape Coral Yacht Club area. This salt-water canal home offers gulf access with only 10 minutes out to open water and Gulf of Mexico.
Mike and Patty purchased this House in 2015
Why Mike and Patty chose Yacht Club
De-stress and escape to the cape in your own private home on a pristine salt-water canal with a resort like heated salt-water pool and spa. From the moment you arrive, you can enjoy many activities and amenities within minutes of Cape Escape — like our pristine beaches, championship golf courses, boating on the Gulf of Mexico, jet-skiing, parasailing, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing excursions and a lot more. Just want to relax? No problem….. spend serene days by the salt pool/spa, fishing off the dock, watching the dolphins and manatees that frequent our canals or a day at the beach will have you relaxed and refreshed. Here are some of our favorite features of Cape Escape: OUR BEACHES: There is much versatility in our beaches and they are wonderful for kids too, with gentle sloping waters, no sudden drop offs and soft sand. Cape Coral Yacht Club beach is just a bike ride away with a lovely pier where each morning you will see dolphin families frolicking in the water. A landscaped beach with playground equipment, BBQ grills, bathrooms, marina and restaurant. There are also free tennis, racquetball, shuffleboard courts, and horseshoe pits. A public boat ramp with access to all amenities at the Yacht Club and free parking. Keep your eyes peeled for the flock of green parakeets that roost there during certain seasons, they won’t steal your lunch, but they are beautiful! The sunsets here are incredible! Fort Myers Beach is just 15 minutes from Cape Escape and boasts miles of white, sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, where the ocean floor slopes gently towards the horizon with no big waves. This beach is the perfect place to engage in watersports such as parasailing, kayaking, dolphin eco-tours, jet skiing, wave-runners or fishing charters – or simply relax and watch the breathtaking sunsets. Lovers Key Beach located at the South end of Fort Myers Beach is one of our four barrier islands that make up this state park.
What makes this House unique
Sanibel Island is located along the Gulf of Mexico and is known for the amazing shells that can be collected when the tide goes out, luscious dining, fishing, boating, or just plain relaxation, a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle, and draw closer to nature. Tucked in the secluded southeast corner of tranquil Sanibel Island there is a six-acre secret garden woven around a beautiful beach-side resort -- home to over 100 types of exotic and unusual flora and fauna. GOLFING: For golf enthusiasts, there are 5 golf courses all within 15 minutes of the Cape Escape. They are public or semi-private and each one is a bit different from the other, so you will want to try them all! BIRDER WATCHING & UNIQUE WILDLIFE: Burrowing Owls, Manatees, Dolphins and more. Southwest Florida is home to some unique wildlife and it can be in your yard! We have seen manatees/dolphins in the canals here and there are burrowing owls on the block. 5 minutes from the Cape Escape is our Great Florida Birding Trail, Rotary Park, which has a rugged trail that is less than one mile long and passes through uplands and salt marshes. DINING: There are many restaurants close by. Some favorites are Fish Tale Grill, Monarcas, Ariani, Monkey Bar and Paradise Tiki Hut.

This rental property is so much more of a home than just a place to rent. It’s welcoming warm decor makes this home a fantastic home away from home.
The home was very clean and welcoming. Comfortable beds and living room furniture plenty of room for all to share and enjoy time! Large dining room table for family game night and dinners. We truly enjoyed our family time and the pool is beautiful at night with the fountain running and the lights on. Amazing during the day to cool off and play, yet relaxing as well! The fountain is so awesome and the jets after fishing all day are great to help relax for bed!
Most amazing sun rises and sets ever with great views from the home.
The yacht club offers a fishing pier that is fun for anyone whom likes to fish. We’ve never been disappointed!
Patty is a pleasure to do business with, great with communication and always helpful!
This was our second stay at Cape Escape and we have already been trying to schedule another trip!! This is by far the best rental experience I’ve ever had!!
Excellent place to stay.
This is a great place to get away. It is close to many good restaurants and the beaches. We went to Sanibel Island by the Lighthouse and found some nice sea shells. We also went to Fort Myers Beach to relax in the sun and they had a Raggae Band playing at the Lani Kai Resort. We also took a trip down to Marco Island and went on a Jet Ski Tour. Very Fun. I recommend.. This place was just a little more money than a Motel Room but, so much nicer. I mean you have your own Pool, Jacuzzi, and a place to Dock your Boat. The house is furnished with everything you could want. It even has bicycles to ride down to the Yacht Club and Boat House Tiki Bar Restaurant. I had a question one night and called the owner Patty and she not only answered the phone but, she was very helpful. I don't normally write reviews but, this place was so nice I thought I would. Stop looking for another spot. You just found the right one. Have fun.
As soon as we arrived the view of the pool, the backyard and the river was breathtaking. It was so relaxing to wake up and enjoy the mornings by the poolside. The kids loved their stay as much as the adults. This house had everything you could think of from kitchen utensils to pool toys. We didnt have to bring extra luggage. The house was very clean which was a relief. Additionally, the owners, Mike and Patty were always available to answer any questions we had. We loved our stay and will definitely look forward to staying here on our next little getaway. Thanks Mike and Patty!!
Amazing get away!
This home was a great getaway for our family. The pool was amazing. The kids loved the shallow end and the tile work (turtles throughout the pool). This home did not feel at all like a rental, it felt cozy, warm and welcoming. It's centrally located to so many things to see and do. The yacht was only a mile from the house with a beach and restaurant, with beautiful sunsets! We took walks and bike rides around the nice neighborhood. They even supplied beach stuff. Mike and Patty were great to work with. It was a nice touch that they called us to see it how everything was going. We will definitely be back to Cape Escape and also recommend this home to our family and friends! Thank you Mike and Patty for sharing your home with our family.
Relaxing- Everything We Needed
We had a great time here - everything we could think of (and even things we forgot) were available at Mike and Patty's place. It was a relaxing, wonderful place to return to after an amazing day fishing off Captiva or shelling at Sanibel Island.
So much better than expected!
This house is terrific! It was larger than we anticipated, clean and nicely decorated. We could tell they put a lot of thought into what guests might need during their stay. Every time I needed something - I found it. It was more like staying at a friend or family members house than a rental. The pool and hot tub were amazing. The kids loved all the fun little details on the pool - the tile work, the built in seats, the little wading area. The hot tub was easy to use and the owners left easy to follow instructions. The neighborhood was convenient to stores and nice and quiet. The only suggestion I would make would be to add black out blinds to the master bedroom - it was pretty bright in there. We loved staying in this house and I would do it again in a heart beat if we revisited Cape Coral. Thank you Patty and Michael!
