Casa Cerca del Rio is a classic Florida ranch style house located in a quiet neighborhood in Cape Coral, Florida- “America’s Venice”. Canals, carefully maintained homes and wide, traffic free streets ensure pleasant views and enjoyable walks. “House near the River” offers sailboat access to the Gulf of Mexico from the backyard dock. The property was recently landscaped and is professionally maintained.
The nearly 2,000 square foot home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms- plenty of room for up to 8 or 9 guests. The Master bedroom features a king size bed with pillow top mattress and a tiled bath. Two bedrooms offer queen size beds, are bright and airy. The fourth bedroom is equipped with a twin size bed as well as a desk and comfortable chair – a great place for someone looking to curl up with a book or take a nap. All bedding and towels are new and of high quality.
Casa Cerca del Rio has four flat screen televisions with cable service. A DVD player is available in the living room entertainment center. A Wii game console is also housed in the living room offering a special challenge to the young at heart. Wi-fi service is available throughout the house for guests.
The kitchen is well equipped with generous granite topped counters and a large center island. The appliances are stainless steel and adequately sized to accommodate a house full of hungry guests. A glass topped dining table seats six people. Four additional people can easily be seated at the nearby island.
The living room includes a pull out sofa for last minute guests. The original lanai area has been enclosed and finished offering extra room for activities such as table games and jig-saw puzzles.
The pool area is clearly visible through 6 large sliding glass doors, 3 of which are screened to allow cool breezes at the right time of the year. The oversized lanai has new furniture including comfortable chairs and a table for outside dining – an umbrella can be opened to provide shade.
The large pool is professionally maintained and can be heated if, by chance, the water seems a bit cool. A spill over spa adjoins the pool and provides a welcome spot to spend some time recovering from the strains of shopping or other activities.
A few steps down from the pool is a patio built into the seawall. The patio is large enough to provide seating and a pleasant place to watch for fish, dolphins and manatees that frequent the canal and inhabit the Caloosahatchee River Basin. Nearby beach attractions include: Fort Myers beach and the Barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva. The Sanibel Lighthouse is a familiar landmark to those visiting the area, and nearby shores offer world famous sea shelling. The beaches at Sanibel, Captiva and Lovers Key are rated as some of the best in Florida and are but a short ride from the house.

We Live in NJ and love to travel to Florida on business and vacation. It's our getaway when the air is cold and the snow is deep.
The Owner purchased this house in 2011
We were on business to Fort Myers when we discovered that we can stay in a comfortable home for the same cost as a hotel. So we searched for a home that we could eventually retire to. This home is located on a quite street with no thru traffic so walking or biking is safe. We enjoy being only minutes from the river from our back door. With Direct Gulf Access.
We enjoy staying at our home sitting on the linai with a cup of coffee in the morning watching the fish jump and catching up on email. Shopping is minutes away. The beaches are a short trip across the bridge
Our family of 4 stayed for one week at this beautifully decorated, clean and spacious home. The owners, John and Jane have truly thought of everything to make people feel comfortable and enjoy themselves in this home. Our kids, 7 and 2, spent hours in the pool and we enjoyed the spa very much. The boys loved fishing off the dock and we even had a dolphin visit one day, which was a highlight for me. The property manager, Pal was very kind and helpful. We appreciated all the little things such as bags of ice in the freezer for beach days, plenty of towels, games for the kids, fishing gear, bikes, and the list goes on and on. The house is in a great location for visiting nearby beaches such as Sanibel and Fort Myers. We did not mind the short drive over the bridge to get there as we would never be able to find such a comfortable home with our own pool (in our budget) by the beach. I don't think we will ever stay in a cramped hotel room again as this home was more than we expected. It was close to beaches and some great restaurants. We look forward to visiting again in the near future, hopefully to buy our own vacation home. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone!

The home was very nice and well maintained. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The pool was pleasing and we spent hours there. This was our ninth trip to the cape and this was the nicest home we've stayed in thus far and will try to stay here on our future trips.
We had a great time in Cape Coral. There was so much for our family of five to do! We really enjoyed swimming in the pool and laying in the sun. We also went to Sun Splash Waterprak in Cape Coral and the Naples Zoo. The house and pool area were very clean. The owners were very quick to respond and very helpful. The manager Pal was very informative. We did go to the Cape Coral Yacht Club (which Pal suggested) for fishing. The boys caught alot of fish and even a sting ray. We would highly recommend this vacation home!!
Our family had a wonderful time in Cape Coral! Owners where very quick to respond to our inquiries prior to our trip and the property manager was AWESOME always available and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had during our stay. We made some wonderful memories and would love to stay at Casa Cerca Del Rio again soon!
I have to give it to the property owners as they are very attentive to any and all requests and there property manager puts service back in customer service. I have rented at least 10 different properties in Cape Coral and the way I was treated here by owner and property manager left me feeling very happy with my stay.
I cannot say enough about the property owner and the home itself! This was a great experience, and will not hesitate to stay at this property again if I have the chance!! 5 stars !!
