About the property

3 Bed, 2 Bath, Large Intersecting Canal Views, SW Exposure, Heated Pool/Spa

A beautiful home with the location you desire and tropical surroundings with views of the spectacular waterways in every direction from every room! Large private heated pool/spa setting in quiet lanai facing Southwest looking at large intersecting canals, boarded with palms for privacy and so much waterfront to enjoy. This immaculate home is stocked with all your necessities, fully equipped kitchen, towels, linens. There are even bikes and fishing poles for your enjoyment! The huge corner lot offers so much more privacy, quiet and water views than other homes can offer. Enjoy the comforts of our newly decorated warm and inviting home with the quiet and peacefulness you are searching for. Minutes away from shopping, great restaurants, and of course beaches, however without the chaos you can have best of both worlds!

Tucked in the Four Mile Cove private residential area, you will find quiet and serene surroundings. This area is bordered by the ecological park where you can go hiking, biking or even rent kayaks, and also keeps traffic down to a minimum and contributes to the privacy and placidness of the neighborhood. In the mornings neighbors will take their pooches out for a morning stroll or joggers will be starting their day and everyone is always so friendly.

The home offers a split floor plan that is ideal for two couples or a family wanting some privacy. Enter the expansive Master Suite through the french doors off to the right of the great room. This half of the house is yours. Done in majestic blues and softer hues of the seas and sky creates the essence of peace and serenity. Two double sliding glass doors boast more awe-inspiring views of the pool and canals for just you. The Master Bath has ample space with a custom huge walk-in shower, dual sinks, a second vanity and plenty of natural lighting, also a huge walk-thru closet.

Over to the left of the central living area you will find two more bedrooms that share a common bath. You will find easy access to and from the bath to lanai here as well, making changing swimsuits easier and keeping excess water from dripping all through the home. The second huge bedroom is a suite all its own with comfortable recliners and private TV/cable to enjoy some time alone. Adorable wood bunk-beds with cheery accents are found in the third bedroom.

Relax right here in this amazing home, swim in the immense pool, soak in the spa, read one of the many books provided under cover in the lanai or go down to the boat dock and sit right by the water to soak it all in. Maybe the manatee will join you in the spring searching for new warmth of the spring season. Try your luck at catching some fish right here, or just watch the boaters drift through the canals. Maybe rent a boat yourself, with only 10 minutes out to the river and on the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

If looking for more adventures, you do not have to go far. Just out of Four Mile Cove, 1/2 mile away, there is tons of shopping (even outlet mall close by) and conveniences, restaurants, spas, fine dining, night clubs, fitness centers, even bowling or golfing . A quick car ride to go visit Sanibel Island for shelling and shopping (1/2 hour drive) or Captiva a little farther. Go see Fort Myeres Beach with the baby powder soft white sand (1/2 hour away). The Yatch Club and Marina is only 10 minutes away with a small beach, fishing pier on the river, plenty of shopping and restaurants with live entertainment. A very fun afternoon indeed! Sun Splash Water Park is also so close by for the kids entertainment.

Wether you are looking for the ultimate rest and relaxation or more advantageous, a return visit may be in store for you each year. You have found just what you were looking for right here.

About Mike & Kim

Mike and I live in the very rural area of NY in a custom built log home. We have been blessed with two boys that are turning into fine young men. Our oldest is a civil engineer at an established consulting firm and our other son is in his sophomore year of college studying to be an engineer as well. Both boys help us tremendously with responsibilities that we have for work and on our ranch. We are outside loving people and very active. Our place is a lot of work, but it is all worth it. It was our dream that we designed and built.

During the summer our life is quite hectic. We have beautiful land on the highest point in the County with a breathtaking view that you can see for miles and miles. Our home is also a beef ranch that keeps us quite busy. Also I am very involved with my two horses. I enjoy trail riding on the property through the woods with my quarter horse Chevy and my thouroughbred, Rambo, that I jump and show with. During the riding months I try to ride every day because it is something I had dreamed about as a child but did not have the opportunity to do until 14 years ago. So we work hard and play hard.

During the winter we snowmobile as much as we can. But winter can be very long and harsh and it is a luxury to have the opportunity to get away to sunny Florida.

Mike & Kim purchased this house in 2012

Why Mike & Kim chose Cape Coral

We have ventured in many places in Florida, however we have found Cape Coral just lovely. The coast is often windy, making it quite chilly. I fell in love with the mild Gulf side. Cape Coral is not the big tourist trap, which I appreciate. I want my quiet place to relax and unwind and forget all the busy activity and troubles. This place is perfect. However there are plenty of places close by for more activity and for the boys. Of course everyone loves the beach, and Fort Myers Beach is lovely with the powder sand and Sanibel is awesome as well for shelling and swimming in the calmest waters that are part of the ocean.

I fell in love with this house, we call “The Crib”. I thouroughly enjoyed redoing the interior design of the home, making it the perfect escape to the tropics. We just do not have the time to spend there yet, so we decided to share our home for others to enjoy when we just can’t. I think many will fall in love with our second home as well.

What makes this house unique

We had been searching for a few months for the right place in Cape Coral. The location in the quiet residential neighborhood is important to me. The huge over-sized corner lot is extravagant .

All this is great, however as soon as I walked into this house I knew it was everything we were looking for. I love the vaulted ceilings, the wall of mirrors and pocket shelving making the great room feel enormous. I love the open layout. Best of all are the pocket doors that open up and tuck away into the wall and the lanai and pool area are literally part of the living space. And THE VIEW! The intersecting large canals are RIGHT THERE! This is everything I was searching for.

There are many details of the quality home's design that just make it all perfect. I love the french doors that lead to the master suite. It makes it your personal private haven and I feel like a queen. I love the arched shelving space carved in the wall as you enter the master. I love every inch of the master - the two double sliding doors giving me my private entry to the lanai and incredible views of so much canal and the pool. I love all the closet space, of course every girl wants a walk-in closet that leads right to an enormous beautiful bathroom.

I love the split lay out design with the master suite on one side and the two other bedrooms on the other side of the huge central area. There is plenty of space for everyone to have privacy but the best part is the areas where every one can join together as a family or with friends.

As snowbirds getting away from the cold winters in the north we felt we had come to a tropical island when we entered this house. Palm trees along the canal beyond the pool on the lanai are a beautiful backdrop and we immediately began to relax. The house is beautifully decorated adding to that feeling. Everything we need is here and when we need to restock shopping is literally minutes away. The house is so conveniently located yet so peaceful and quiet. There are water toys for playing in the pool, bikes for exploring, and quiet streets for just taking a walk. Kim, the owner has been available and helpful for any questions and so has Tommy Lee. This is the 4th time we have rented a house in this area and it far surpasses the others. We are enjoying this time here and are planning to return next winter.

Loved this serene home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to your Cape Coral home. We were surprised at how spacious and well appointed the home was. We loved starting and ending each day sitting on the dock or poolside and watching the mullet jump in the water. Charles couldn’t have been more attentive and efficient with anything we had questions about. We loved the proximity to all the good shopping and restaurants nearby. It was truly a wonderful home.

Thanks for allowing us to stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Allison, I am happy you enjoyed my home and found just what you were looking for. So many people get a kick out of the “flying” mullet! I didn’t provide them, but the comfy furniture and awesome surroundings sure make it nice to sit and watch the free entertainment! I would love to welcome you back again for another memorable vacation!

Spotless and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I was having a girls weekend with a childhood friend and I found a few houses I liked. But after corresponding with Kim, the homeowner, I knew this is where I needed to stay. She made me feel like I was HER friend coming to stay at her home. The home itself is immaculate! Even behind the TV is spotless! We had one minor issue, but once I told Kim, it was handled immediately. I plan to stay here again without doubt. The beds are super comfy, the pool is clean, the AC was cold, and curling up with the big blankets at night to watch movies was the perfect ending to our days in the pool. Don't hesitate to stay here. I am not easy to please, somewhat shameful to say, but it's true. This place is worth every penny and then some!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much! I was touched by your reunion with your friend and was pleased to host you both. It brought back memories of my dear friends, wishing we could all take time for such a trip as you did. I am thrilled that my home and I were selected out of all the others as your top pick. Coming from a tough person to please to another very detail oriented gal, I think we share similar expectations. This is exactly how the VRBO/renting from a homeowner should be! A wonderful experience for both the guest and the homeowner. You enjoyed and appreciated my home and all it has to offer and I would most certainly Love to have you return!

Great house right on a canal!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this beautiful house during a weekend getaway. Close to Fort Myers but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. All necessities were provided, only needed to bring consumables. House is beautiful and spacious. Would definitely stay again!

Wonderful home for relaxing-very clean

  • 5 of 5

This house is great. It is very clean and has everything you would need. The deck by the canal is wonderful for fishing, watching the sunset or just relaxing. Kim and Mike are wonderful and answered all questions in a timely manner. We were in Cape Coral for a baseball tournament and decided to rent a house instead of a hotel. This house is centrally located to all the parks. We would rent this house again if in the area.

Perfect, peaceful location with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Very close to shopping and restaurants; yet, very peaceful and quiet back at the residence. We visited Fort Myers Beach, which was a short 25 min or so drive from the house. However, the beach is beautiful, but we preferred the paradise we found at Kim's house! Awesome master suite and spacious 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. Loved the open floor plan and dining in the lanai. The canal behind the lanai is so serene, and sitting on the boat dock watching fish jump was such fun for nh son! Highly recommend for a family vacation or even 2-3 couples.

Owner's Response: Thank you Lindsey for your kind words. I am so glad that you enjoyed my home, everything it offers and the Cape area. There is so much to do! But you are right, I always find myself the happiest right at home, relaxing at the pool or boat dock, taking in the canal water ways. Would love to have you visit again!
