Please see the aerial video to appreciate the wonderful location of this home on a point of land where two wide canals intersect. You will feel like you have escaped to an island paradise surrounded by water as you enjoy the privacy of the expansive lanai and screened area (2100 sq ft/200 sq m) for casual dining, swimming and relaxing. The spectacular 40 foot salt water pool (12 m) with a sturdy handrail at the stairs and a beautiful view of the wide water on three sides of the home will refresh you while swimming a few lengths, playing in the water or just sitting and enjoying your favorite beverage. The outdoor under roof (lanai) itself is a large 655 sq ft (61 sq m) but more importantly, it is 24 ft deep (7 m) providing lots of protection from the sun. In addition, the see through outdoor power blinds can be lowered as needed to provide extra sun protection but not block your view. The comfortable custom patio furnishings will enhance your enjoyment whether dining or just lounging. Because of the wide panoramic view, we often see Osprey, Bald Eagles, Egrets, Little green herons, Ibis, Red Tailed Hawks and cardinals Burrowing owls live at the end of the street during season. There are mullet jumping high out of the water and we sometimes see Manatee and Jackfish.. The mangroves fringing Cape Coral are only one major block away making them easily accessible with our canoe.. Gentle breezes come in off the Gulf of Mexico most days. The underwater fish lights down at the dock provide an underwater view at night. It is great to go down there after dark and enjoy both the fish and the great nighttime skies. The bedroom has a few extra features for romance. We also have two new bikes and lots of bike lanes in the area. One guest even biked to the beach, 7 miles away.
You will quickly realize that this home is well above the standards set by most rental homes in Cape Coral. The half acre lot (750 sq metres) boasts 207 ft of shoreline (82 meters) with two docks that don't block your view and a large lawn at the back. In total the home has 6000 sq ft of enclosed space (550 sq m) including a two car spaces in the three car garage reserved for guests.
The interior of the home under air is 3000 sq ft home (280 sq m). It is located In a quiet neighborhood in the highly desirable South West area of Cape Coral on two wide Gulf Access canals. The canal to the south is three times wider than most Cape Coral canals. The general area is well established with modern homes. The home has an open floor plan with the master bedroom separate from the guest wing. The extra wide hallways and doorways, extra space in all living areas, comfort height toilets, walk in shower and grab bars make this beautiful custom built, three year old home the perfect place for a Florida vacation for all, especially those who might have some mobility problems. We are fragrance and chemically sensitive so our home is low in chemical irritants which is important for those with allergies and asthma. There is a whole house water filter system plus a reverse osmosis drinking water system in the kitchen. The lawn is chemical free so as to not pollute the water and yes, it is not a pristine weedfree lawn by Florida standards. The large screened lanai and cage means you can sit out in the evening with no fear of insects.
The billiards table in the games room will provide you with evening entertainment. Or the 60 inch flat screen ultra high definition LED television (152 cm) in the Great room may attract your attention. The Great Room has four very comfortable seats for TV viewing (a double power reclining leather couch and two leather swivel chairs with adjustable backs and foot rests) You won't want to leave home except to enjoy some of the nearby waterfront restaurants at Cape Harbour and Tarpon Point or to venture further to the beaches. The closest beach is at The Cape Coral Yacht Club seven miles (fifteen minutes) away. Wifi and free North American calling is included.

Overall the furnishings are high quality, sturdy and comfortable. Most pieces swivel and recline. It is an eclectic and interesting mix of old Florida and modern Florida.
The master bedroom is beautifully furnished with Drexel Heritage. It has a split king wireless adjustable bed to enhance your sleeping comfort. It would be considered a soft bed given the 3 inches of allergy free latex foam on top of the allergy free soya foam mattresses. The queen sized bed in the guest room has a pillow top mattress. The queen sized sleeper sofa in the games room has been upgraded with a new 4.5 inches thick Green Guard certified memory foam mattress which is both comfortable and low in chemical emissions .

There is plenty of room in the deep garage for loading your vehicle. There are three low rise steps to the door threshold. A portable ramp can be made available if required. Please ask for this at the time of booking.
The quiet neighborhood is lovely and safe for walking to enjoy the Florida landscapes. By the way, the Google aerial views are a bit out of date in that the home next door was not complete. It is complete now and looks wonderful. Our lot is the corner lot with shoreline on both intersecting canals.
We have vacationed in Cape Coral for 18 years now and love the place. We searched for years to find the ideal lot and found it in 2010. In 2015 we completed this 3000 sq ft home (280 meters) incorporating all the features necessary for the most comfortable and luxurious vacation possible. We also built into it all the "aging in place" features we could think of. It is well above the standards of most rental homes because it was built for our private enjoyment. We believe you will very much enjoy your stay here.
Suffice to say....it is a very special home.
