About the property

Spacious 2 bedroom and den with pull out couch. 1250 sq ft 12 ft vaulted ceiling

Newer condominium with a resort atmosphere perfect for relaxing in a friendly, safe and clean gated community. Nestled in the heart of Cape Coral, FL you are 5 minutes to the beach, restaurants, bars, tourist attractions, shops and parks. Should you wish to explore more of Southern FL., Tampa - St. Petersburg is a 2 hour drive north, Naples is 45 minutes south and even Miami/ Fort Lauderdale is only 2 1/2 hours away. However, if you want the the many cultural attractions of a larger city, Fort Myers is only minutes away. The tranquil islands of Sanibel, Captiva and Pine Island are within easy reach.

Many visitors are also content on just staying within the Banyan Trace property lounging around the olympic heated pool and hot tub. There is an air conditioned fitness centre with cardio and weight machines along with two lit clay tennis courts. You can jog, walk or bike the golf cart paths adjacent to the property.

Watch Cable TV or surf the net in the comfort of a spacious condo, enjoy the fresh air and view of the old golf course from the screened in lanai and listen to the birds.

About Peter Welke

We are a married couple from Barrie, ON Canada who fell in love with the Cape Coral area . We love the ocean and the many great boating spots nearby & the many golf courses to choose within an hours drive.

Peter has lived in Toronto, Boston, New York,Antwerp, Duesseldorf & Frankfurt, Germany, he and Susan have travelled throughout Europe, Asia and North America but decided to plan their retirement in Cape Coral.

Peter Welke purchased this condo in 2014

Why Peter Welke chose Cape Coral

We chose this gated community as it is in a safe area, is very clean, great location and has an awesome swimming pool.

What makes this condo unique

Cape Coral is one of the safest cities in Florida located in between Tampa - St. Petersburg to the north and Naples to the south. Even Miami is only about 2 1/2 hour drive if your so inclined to go.

It has the big city benefits of Fort Myers just minutes away while maintaining it's smaller community charm.

Really nice.

  • 4 of 5

Simple clean, extremely well stocked towels etc.. We went just as most snow birds came home. This was our first time here. We had tropical weather with warm breezes every day. Pool was heated (very heated probably 84 plus) Well done.

Loved this rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Peter's condo for the month of April & the condo was perfect. The accommodations were great, beds were so comfy, plenty of linens, tv's & cable service & wifi were great & plenty of dishes & cooking items. We had a problem with the fridge but Peter resolved it immediately and satisfactorily.

Peter came & met us on our first night in Cape Coral & not only gave us numerous suggestions on restaurants, golfing etc but he also took us on a personal tour of the area. We highly recommend this condo. The pool is great, shopping is nearby, elevator was great so the 4th floor was not an issue. Definitely will not be disappointed & deposit was refunded very promptly as well. Peter is very easy to deal with & is prompt in dealing with any issues or concerns.

This condo wasn't as advertised it was BETTER,the location alone is great.You can stay at the condo and feel like your at a resort,it's in a quiet area and if going in may less crowded.There are flat screened TVs in 3 different rooms with latest dvd players and it has fast internet.Overall we loved this place and would be glad to go back. Thank you Mr Welke for letting us stay in your condo!

Perfect Working Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

We brought the family to Florida for a three-month working vacation to escape 18 gruelling months in DC. (Sorry, if you're a fan of the Nation's Capital; we were less than enthused.) Our original plan was to find a permanent residence in SWFL for our family, but miss too many things about Central Texas. So we're heading back at the end of our stay, but making plans to return annually (or more often) to this beautiful place.

The condo at Banyan Trace is a quiet respite from the busyness of the Cape (during the summer anyway) and the nightlife of Ft. Myers. Tucked away off a side street, overlooking a once (and future?) golf course, it's truly an oasis of serenity. Lovingly furnished and well appointed, it's move-in and get-your-relaxation-on ready. Everything is white, light, and bright.

Being on the top floor (there's an elevator and a luggage cart for easy loading/unloading), the condo has a great vantage point for watching the sun rise (from the lanai, over the golf course) and set (from the front balcony). And it's location in SE Cape gives you easy access to anywhere in Fort Myers, RSW, Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach, Cape Harbour, and Pine Island.

To top it off, the owners are excellent! Everything was handled perfectly, issues were addressed right away, and our stay couldn't have been more enjoyable.

One note: the description currently states that it has one bath, but it actually has two full baths (the master has a shower; the other has a tub/shower combo).
