About the property

Comfortable Sailboat Access Home with Heated Pool and Hot Tub

Come get away to a home away from home in Southwest Florida. We recently purchased this house and have done our best to create a comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Sit out on the screened lanai, swim in the heated salt water pool and unwind in the hot tub.

Bring your boat and go from our dock on a sailboat access canal to the Gulf. Boat rental is available from the nearby marina.

We are located in the beautiful Palaco Grande neighborhood that is centrally located to many activities, restaurants and shopping.

It is not far to the beautiful Fort Myers Beach or shelling on Sanibel. If you want something closer there is a beach at Yacht Club Community Park.

About Lesley Sweeney

Our family of five is from CT. We worked hard (especially my husband) to make this house a nice place to vacation. We look forward to many years of enjoyment and hope to spend more time down here when we retire. My two teen daughters both speak German and we welcome any international travelers.

Lesley Sweeney purchased this villa in 2014

Why Lesley Sweeney chose Florida South West

My husband and I have friends nearby who inspired us and we found this place that has sailboat access for my husband, a pool for the kids and nice yard and landscaping for me.

Just right

  • 4 of 5

This home fit our needs perfectly! It's not a fancy place but is very clean, great location for access to all of Ft. Myers! The amenities are helpful, I used the bike to journey up and down the back roads impressed with the set up of Cape Coral. The pool was a welcome relief for all of us and with the fact it was heated was a big bonus! The hot tub wasn't working so that was a negative, but the owners did all they could to get the repairs made and even though it wasn't working the whole time, the effort the owners made to get something done was impressive. You can tell these owners are very concerned with renters having a great experience at their home and it showed. That's a big deal when choosing a place to stay on vacation. We would certainly return and hope to next year!

Excellent House right on the water with direct gulf access

  • 5 of 5

This is actually our second time staying in this home. Both of our stays have been for two weeks. The owners are very down to earth and easy to work with. This is very comfortable place to stay. This is a home that the owners have put some genuine heart and soul into to ensure that travelers are comfortable. Please feel free to read my other review as well. We are a family of four, my children love the pool, the hot tub, large screen TV and of course they can't function without Wi-Fi. All works excellent . Our strategy is to hit Sam's club and eat our meals either at the house or on the beach. House is well equipped for prepping, and serving food. The house also has beach toys and a couple of coolers you can pack for the beach. We did something very different this time, we rented a boat from Caloosa River Boat Rentals down the street about two miles. (Also excellent to work with). Any way we rented a boat and kept it at the house for the night and took it out the next day. The canals are Very easy to navigate in and out of and dock the boat at the house. If you have never rented a house for a vacation before, do it. We would never go back to suit casing a vacation out of a hotel room. A House is the way to go, and this is a great option.

it was ok. not the best not the worst

  • 2 of 5

The house needs updating. There's cracks in all the ceilings, it was a bit dirty and musty when we arrived, the air vents all drip, they didn't even cut the grass until about Wednesday or Thursday. Also, we never received our deposit back and we left it cleaner than when we got there. Also, why would you say its sailboat access if you can't even use the sailboat? That's a little false advertising if you ask me.

If you put aside all of the above it was enjoyable.

Owner's Response: My husband and I were very disappointed to hear of the complaints you had with our house. We have owned it for two years and have done a lot of updates on the house in that time. Is it brand new? No. We were very upset to hear about your concerns in a review rather than when we could have done something about your concerns. We are not rich people and try very hard to make our house as nice to stay in as possible. We were sorry that we were unable to address your issues. We returned your security deposit less the extra our cleaner charged when you left (which she has never before charged me extra). Fortunately, there was a damage protection policy to cover washing machine and shower valve that were broken when you left. The other thing is our house did say it has sailboat access from the Gulf, which it does have, but made no inference that we had a boat for guests to use. We do have a catamaran on the property that we use that when we are down there. It is difficult to launch and operate so we would be concerned about a guest using it.

Wonderful stay in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation. From the moment we first contacted Lesley and Steve, all the communication was clear, fast and helpful. When we arrived at their home in Cape Coral we immediately felt at home and relaxed. Their home has everything you could possibly need, and more! The only thing you will need to bring along are your toothbrush and clothes, everything else is already there.

We ate every meal at the table in the lanai. We spent many hours enjoying the amazing pool, the lovely spa and fishing off the dock. I even had ample time to read some books. And, of course, my teens loved the big screen TV and the WIFI that both worked really well.

Lesley and Steve, thank you both so very much for the great hospitality!

A Lovely four months away from the cold!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very happy 4 months at the Sweeney’s house in Cape Coral. They are a very special couple who work hard at being sure that everything for their renters is taken care of. With 3 bedrooms, we were able to have Xmas with our son and his grown up family and all were happy. The large table in the living room area offered a lovely place to share our xmas meal, with the kitchen nearby. There is a huge TV and we brought our Apple TV so as to be able to connect to more offerings.

Most of our cocktail time and meals were taken out on the covered but open section of the pool area rain(rarely) or shine. The pool is a focal point that just draws one outside for a dip or just relaxing. There is always the hot tub which has wonderful jets. Both the pool and hot tub are serviced once a week by a delightful young man, Brad.

If so inclined, you can sit by the canal and moving water is always nice. Most of the time, we opted for the lanai. Oh yes—the sound of the birds was a daily event. They actually seem to be carrying on a conversation since their calls are so numerous. We had the occasional rabbit as well.

The neighbors are VERY nice and even though you are two canals in from the main road “Del Prado”, it is wonderfully quiet.

Everything for shopping is just minutes away—either Publix (one way) or Win Dixie (the other). Winn Dixie gives fuel perks for every $50 you spend which are redeemable at Circle K gas stations. Bagels anyone??—out to Del Prado /take a right turn and make an almost immediate u turn and it’s right there and quite good. They even have a drive through window. If you change your mind and want donuts, go out to Del Prado and straight across to Dunkin Donuts.

If you are not from Florida, make sure that you heed the possible u-turns on the main roads. They have the right of way.

I exercised at LA Fitness which is 5 minutes away and their facilities are superb. I gravitated to the Zumba classes and they are especially good and an incredible workout.

A special thank you to Leslie and Steve. Their attention to any question was exceedingly prompt.

Our family really enjoyed vacation at Lesley' s house. Our favorite pastime was in lanai. Children of course enjoyed the pool. Husband was practicing his fishing skills. House is full of family game, so we know what to do when is thunderstorm. House is fully equipped and clean. Very close to all stores, favorite one was dunkin donats almost across the street. Thanks Leslie for your nice and cozy house.
