While the house is in a residential neighborhood, it was exactly where we needed. We were visiting friends in the same neighborhood and any hotel would have been further away. We would have needed two hotel rooms to accommodate us and the kids so I figured I'd take a look at vrbo. I'm so glad I did!!! The great experience started with frequent (sometimes immediate) contact directly from the owner. His contact locally was so pleasant and easy to work with as well (right next door and she was home when we got there and when we were leaving). The house was spotless and although the bathrooms were older/original, the furnishings throughout the rest of the house made you feel like the house was new. The paint colors, furnishings, kitchen and floors were very updated. The kitchen was stocked nicely with extras like a blender and mixer. The hot and cold water dispenser was great for refilling our water bottles and making instant coffee in the mornings. The house has a 2 car garage with entrance right into the kitchen which made "moving in" so easy. There's a washer and dryer that we used once and was so handy to have. The backyard is small but right on a canal with a pleasant view (awesome boat across the canal!) the canal was a small concern with our small children but we didn't go out there with them other than to take a few pictures. The house is close to many restaurants, supermarkets, fast food, and cvs type stores. As you can see, I can't say enough good things about the house. We have recommended it to my friend and her mother who live in Cape Coral so they can have their visitors stay!
