About Crystal Bakker
After raising our children in Minnesota we decided to pick up and leave the cold behind. In 2005 we relocated to Cape Coral, FL. We fell in love with the area and after a few years decided to buy another home on our street to use for visiting guests and a vacation rental. After that went so well we continued purchasing homes to use for vacationers and now own two homes and a condo at Cape Harbour Marina all available for rentals. We are often home just down the street and available to help with any emergencies that might arise. If we are unavailable we have a great handyman and cleaning service to help out in a pinch!
Crystal Bakker purchased this House in 2012

Nice home, great location
Our family enjoyed our stay here. It was our first time in the Cape Coral/Ft. Myers area. We have younger children and the pool was perfect. The home was large and had everything we needed. The location was convenient- walking/biking distance to the marina with restaurants and shops and a Publix supermarket down the street. There were two nice beach cruiser bicycles in the garage. The home is on a busier street but the neighborhood was residential and overall pretty quiet. We would recommend Fathoms Restaurant at the marina for lunch or dinner and drinks. And the Cape Coral beach was a nice surprise- shallow, calm water for the kids, nice amenities and lots of friendly families. There is a pool and a Tiki bar there as well, but we just stayed at the beach. Also check out Rotary Park if you have kids. There is a little nature center and a nice playground. Both are a short drive away.
We brought our dog and the screened in pool area was nice for her to lounge around and hang out with us safely. The backyard was also nice, and although not fully-fenced we didn't have any problems. The neighborhood was nice for dog walks.
Only minor complaints would be that there were no beach chairs or toys and we had to buy beach towels since we were flying and had limited luggage space. And the grill is a small electric one- suited more for 1-2 people, but we made it work. Overall, it was a great place to relax with the family for a few days.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great, detailed review! We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed our home. We appreciate your feedback regarding the beach chairs & towels. We do have it listed/explained in our rental agreement that those items are not provided. We used to have some at our home, and unfortunately had a large issue with items being lost or taken. Since then, we now ask that no items be taken from the home. We are fully stocked with towels for the pool but do ask all of our guest bring their own beach towels.
Beautiful house and property
We had so much fun. The pool was the highlight for the kids
We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and the pool area!
Beautiful home in quiet location
Upon arrival, we looked forward to relaxing in the SPA/pool. However, there was animal hair though out from the prior renter. We then contacted Crystal who took care of the problem within a day.
All in all, the home was very nice and I feel comfortable recommending this home for others.
We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We apologize that you found a few small balls of hair outside in the lanai area. We are glad to hear the inside of the home was perfectly clean to your expectations though!
Accommodating owner with dolphins in the backyard, literally!
Beautiful home on a canal where we saw both dolphins and a manatee! Walking distance to marina with restaurants, coffee shop, and more. Short drive to Matlatcha and Sanibel Islands. Home owner was very responsive, helpful, and even shipped us back some forgotten items after our two week stay.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at look forward to having you back in the future.
Very nice spacious clean house with view of canal, we saw dolphins every day, simply amazing and so relaxing. We plan on coming back for sure!
Dolphins come by a lot and we love watching them! If you get really lucky you can even see a manatee. We look forward to having you back!
We loved our stay at this wonderful home! Great location! Enjoyed seeing the dolphin and manatee right at the dock. Loved that the pool was not too deep and it was shallow on each end (great for volleyball with the family). Property management was very responsive with any concerns. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again! Thanks for letting us stay in your home!
It is so fun when you get to see a manatee and dolphins from the dock! We are so glad you enjoyed the home and look forward to having you back in the future.
