About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath Home (Sleeps 6+)

The best way to describe the home is the 5 Star Reviews. While I strive to make you feel like its home while your here, many guests speak of more than they expected. Also keep in mind that as a VRBO listing I do not have the option to select what review to keep or delete. Every review that any guest has ever posted is here since the property was listed on VRBO.

So here is your private home in desirable southwest Cape Coral. 120 feet frontage on salt water gulf access canal with dock, boat lift and electric heated pool. Over 1800 square feet under air includes all that southwest Florida has to offer. The pictures are current and tell the story except that reviews say its better than the pictures. Pets welcome. Property is located south of Cape Coral Parkway and west of Skyline Blvd. Smoking is allowed outside only including lanai pool deck.

Amenities include, computer workstation with printer copier scanner, high speed internet, cable TV (including outside on lanai) and telephone service. Video library with more than 3 dozen titles including Disney. Game cube.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I had high expectations for this house based on previous reviews, but it still exceeded our expectations in person. The house was very clean and very well decorated, it made us feel right at home. Had all amenities we needed, and it is a beautiful spot on the canal. Booking was also extremely easy and professional. Would highly recommend, and would be happy to return if we stay on Cape Coral again.

Great value! Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven had a wonderful 5 night stay at this nice home in a nice, quiet neighborhood in Cape Coral. We especially enjoyed the pool and screened-in lanai area. The house is neat and tastefully decorated. In addition to plenty of dishware, kitchen utensils, etc., we appreciated items available such as thermoses, coolers, beach towels and the box fan and table top fans in bedrooms (for white noise at nighttime). One evening we were pleasantly surprised to see a couple of dolphins in the waterway out back. A pleasant, relaxing place to stay in an area that feels safe for a very reasonable price.

wonderful home with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We recently arrived home after spending 8 spectacular days at this property. We have used VRBO in Marco Island, Maui and the Big Island and this home compares well right up there with them. The neighborhood felt very safe to walk in, restaurants, groceries and shopping were all quite handy by car. The home was well decorated with comfortable beds, lots of seating and was well maintained and clean. The pristine pool was a gift given the quite warm weather. The neighbours were very friendly and welcoming. The property maintenance was top notch. I would definitely recommend this property for couples or those with families.

Perfect, Peaceful, Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Left the Midwest to get a taste of paradise and could not have been happier with our stay at John's place. The plan was to rest our heads at night and check out the surrounding area during the day but upon entering the home, the plans changed and most of the time was spent on the property and here's why:

The home is very spacious and inviting. The house was clean and decorated with warm, soothing colors accented with furniture that is comfortable and inviting. Everything we needed was available from kitchen accessories that were well maintained and in good working order to TV amenities. Having a working computer was helpful to check for restaurants or local attractions.

The lanai & pool were our location of choice! Crystal clear, warm water and a surrounding deck that was spotless. There's a great combination of sun and shade to accommodate the most avid sun lover or protect those who prefer to stay covered. The added bonuses of a ceiling fan, light AND TV under the covered area of the lanai provided all day & night entertainment and comfort.

The canal provided us with a variety of wildlife including mallards, egrets and songbirds. The water was clear enough to see sheephead, bass, mullet and, YES, we saw DOLPHINS in the canal! The fishing poles available for use were an added bonus and we spent many hours on the dock fishing and enjoying the peace and quiet of the area.

Ventured out to Sanibel Island (seashell capital of the world). Enjoyed meals at Lobster Lady, El Mambo (diner/breakfast), and The Boathouse Tiki Bar & Grill. There is a public beach area by the The Boathouse which was excellent to watch the sunset and less than 5 miles from the house. Duffy's was great for watching sports!

Great place to enjoy Southwest Florida in a perfect setting.

Beautiful, clean home.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, John, for the use of your home. We had a great week. Everything we could possibly need other than groceries was provided. If we ever come back to the area I would definitely stay there again.
