"The pictures do not do this beautiful home justice. The minute you drive up you get transported to a tropical oasis and leave behind reality. Walking through the doors you feel the beach transformation that all of the furnishings and appointments of the home contribute to. You are out at a Summertime Retreat in a beautiful location with all the comforts of home. Needed a wine bottle opener and it was there, time to grill some steaks and the grill was ready, feeling drained and warm: a splash in the spacious pool was perfect, time to have dinner: more plates cups and glasses than you could ever use, time to finally lay your head down: the beds were ultra comfortable let alone extra sheets to use during the stay if needed. It's like the owner sat down and made a list of everything that could make a vacation home perfect and checked off the list one item at a time. It is a spacious home with room for everyone to have their own space or socialize together. The layout is perfect for families, couples, youngsters and elderly alike. Really works for a wide range of needs. The garage with washer and dryer allows you to do your own laundry along the way or just keep your swimsuits fresh during the whole trip. We were there during the 4th of July holiday and aside from all the fireworks that were around that day and evening, the best show was when everything died down and I was left alone with the thousands of stars in the sky lighting up the quiet and tranquil neighborhood. Nothing could have bee better with the home, accommodations , or supplies provided by the owner. Now, speaking of Cheryl, the retreat's owner and partner in our vacation. She was incredible. From the time we booked until the time we safely made it back home, she was genuinely engaged in ensuring that we were clear on what to expect and that we didn't overthink or over plan our trip outside of just preparing to fully enjoy her retreat and the neighboring points of interest. All her efforts to prepare you for the visit to her home and also the towns around Cape Coral allow you to have a personal concierge before during and after your trip to address your plans along the way. She also makes herself available to you in case of any issue that may arise during your stay. Her efforts really show the pride she exemplifies in her home and community and willingness she has to share it with all her guests. She is truly one of a kind. I reccomend the Summertime Retreat 100%, you will really enjoy!"
