We rented Chris's property for a Christmas vacation with my girlfriends family who had come over from Russia. The concept of Christmas on the beach was too much for them to pass up, so we drove from Austin Texas to Cape Coral (2 *very* full days drive) and had a wonderful time ! Very comfortable laid back home, close to local shops and a short drive to the beaches on the islands or Fort Myers. The family Shi-Tzu came along too and enjoyed the walks along the inland canals. If you want to vacation in this area, you won't be disappointed by this property.
We were pleasantly surprised to find this home was even better than the pictures when we arrived.The beautiful decor and comfortable beds, pool, spacious Lanni and modern kitchen with all you need to relax. There is such a wide variety of things to do, fabulous restaurants and natural beauty and breathtaking sunsets and birds. From our front door we could see boats and water views and spectacular walks filled with Florida's warmth and beauty. The owner Chris is great to work with and her follow-thru makes her so wonderful to work with. We are coming back next year for sure with our family.
This review is WAAAYYYYYYY over due, but we I stayed here in aug/sept 2011 While my Husband was back home (we are originally from lee county) on boot leave from Marine Corps boot camp. The house was awesome. Everything you could possibly need was there! During the short amount of time we stayed, it felt like home. Things were decorated so nicely and everything was so clean and well maintained. The pool and hot tub were phenomenal and it was great having "our own place" after not being able to have so much as a phone call for three months. The neighborhood is so great and the proximity to everything we love about our home town. Chris and her family were so easy to keep in contact with and made the scramble for finding a place to stay piece of cake. I am also pleased to say that while staying here, my Husband and I actually became Husband and Wife! Here we are, over a year later, still as madly in love as ever . Every time we go back home to visit I plan to shoot Chris an email first to see is the home is available. I could not recommend this place enough!!
WE enjoyed the house a lot, everything was a described, the house was clean. There was more than we could have ever needed, even a can of bug spray, which came in handy because the mosquitoes were pretty bad in june. The house was in an easy access to all the nearby beaches 20-30 minutes max. There was a toll fee of $2.00 each time we left and came back onto Cape Coral. The toll fee was worth it to stay here, Cape Coral is a beautiful and relaxing place. The fenced in yard was awesome for the dogs, the really enjoyed it. Chris was a big help with any questions I had. We would stay here again any day!!! Thanks Chris for everything.
Lovely home, perfect for our needs of extended family holiday vacation. Write up is accurate. Open floor plan allows sense of spaciousness and comfort. Kitchen is great working kitchen with long island on one side and cabinets and counter opposite. With two large tables we were able to set up games and puzzles on one and leave other table for dining. Great sense of privacy in back yard and we did see young eagles on two mornings.
Home in excellent condition, feels welcoming and quickly feels like a home away from home.
Chris is fabulous to deal with, always open to questions and offers great suggestions. Definitely would use again.

What a wonderful vacation home!! Perfect spot to escape from the winter snows of the north. We had perfect weather and were able to hike the nature perserve,bike ride,and enjoy the beaches. Yet is was hard to leave this beautiful setting, with a pool and hot tub!! Sitting in the yard having breakfast and watching the eagles fly by and the egerts stop for a visit was always wonderful.. There are plenty of delicious restaurants and shopping nearby. We lacked for nothing in the home. Everything is new and in wonderful condition, with very comfortable beds!!
Chris was a pleasure to work with She is so thoughtful and caring when dealing with you. We look forward to a return this winter and are excited tocontinueto explore the area . Thank you for a fun time and sorry we didn't write this review immediately but you know how busy you get when you come home.
