Karen purchased this villa in 2011
We enjoy the sunshine & year round warmth that Florida offers. Cape Coral has all the amenities that we enjoy on vacation --beautiful beaches, great restaurants, plentiful shopping---and it's all so convenient! Cape Coral canals offer access to the gulf.
We love the ability to relax by the pool or just steps away drop a fishing line into the canal. We enjoy lounging on the lanai sipping on a favorite beverage as dinner is cooking on the grill. Life is good!
This was an amazing property and the pictures don't do it justice. The Property Manager and the Owner are very easy to work with and don't bother you but are always available if needed. The house is amazing especially the pool. The property has the basic amenities throughout. The property is well maintained and very clean. The yard was also just what we where looking for as we have two small dogs. The yard is completely fenced in, all the way to the ground and there was no way for our dogs to escape. The yard is big enough for them to venture around and explore the yard. We would easily recommend this property to friends and family and will be exploring to return in the near future. Bravo to the home owner and the property manager. This was an amazing stay for the month of April 2013. Cape Coral has a lot of amenities and shops and all layed out on the main roads and parkways.
