Excellent accomodations for multi generation enjoyment

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 wonderful days in this beautiful spacious home nestled in the SW corner of Cape Coral. The home accommodated 4 generations of family members- parents (late 70's), us (late 50's), our 20 something kids, and our grand daughters. The kitchen was a good size with plenty of fridge space, pantry space, coffee maker, dishwasher, etc. The pool was a great size for the kids and the attached spa was a hit with the adults and kids alike! The single floor layout was great for all of the ages. We have stayed in a few different places within Ft. Myers and Cape Coral over the years and this home met our needs very well. The grill and adequate kitchen space helped keep many of the meals and preparation on site. The minor items like pool and spa operation questions were answered quickly by the property manager Dwayne. Overall great stay and would recommend it to any family looking for a quiet place to relax and vacation in the Ft. Myers area. There are also walking paths, sidewalks, and biking lanes conveniently located at the end of this very quiet street if you are looking for daily exercise opportunities!

Fabulous Family Headquarters

  • 5 of 5

We had visitors from 3 different states and we all enjoyed this beautiful house. The kids loved the pool during the day and the "adult swim" at night was a big hit when we banned the youngsters. Spacious inside and out, the kitchen was fully stocked with all the necessary tools to prepare meals. The stainless grill outside was a big hit too. Great place with the bunks and game TV upstairs and very spacious bedrooms downstairs.

The casual comfort of the vacation home with the pool and hot tub is spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, loved the property and only had issues with the quality of the beds. The king was comfortable, however the 2 queens and 1 full bed were very old and uncomfortable. But the overall stay was fantastic.

Getaway Accomplished

  • 5 of 5

When I sat with my wife to plan our summer vacation I wanted to go somewhere I could relax and refresh. I wanted to hang out in the pool all day, grill some steaks, drink some adult beverages (responsibly only a time) and do some fishing. When I saw this home I knew it would be the one. We arrived Wednesday afternoon and we're able to get comfortable right away. My family all had their own space and the loft was awesome place to send the kids so the adults could hang out. The pool and spa have a heater and were warm upon our arrival. Kitchen was well stocked with applicance and pots, pans, trays, utnecils, etc for our cooking needs. Owner is very responsive and accomodating. Would definitely stay here again. Too bad it's already booked for Thanksgiving!

Great Property and Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights and loved this place! We enjoyed the nice pool and hot tube. Very spacious house for our group of 10. The beds could be improved (full size beds in non master room) but overall worked out nicely for our party. Nice loft upstairs for more company if needed. Our family had a great time!
