Overview

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.

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.

Absolutely Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks in Jan 2017 and loved everything about this house and the location. It was a short drive to get to Ft Myers Beach or Sanibel but with the beautiful heated pool and lanai you didn't need to go anywhere. The house had everything you would need and was very clean and comfortable. Even had chairs to take to the beach. Very nice neighborhood too! Many great restaurants and grocery stores close by. Would definitely stay here again!

Clean, Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this home. Enclosed outside area has table and chairs as well as lounge chairs. There is a TV to watch from the heated pool but never even thought about turning it on. Too busy relaxing and enjoying the surroundings - watching the boats in the canal (which don't make a sound) and nature. It is a quiet neighborhood but loads of activities are a short drive away. Can't think of a thing you need to bring. Several large markets inc Walmart are nearby for refrigerated items or personal necessities.

We were pleased that our church of choice was close-by for Sunday Services. We hiked, shopped and ate at Pine island, Sanibel and Captiva. Great nature pictures from Ding Darling Nature Preserve and Doc Ford's on Sanibel. Enjoyed the Wicked Dolphin distillery on Pine Island and Miceli's family restaurant nearby in Matlacha enough to visit twice in one week. Also visited the Marina and Park in Cape Coral.

We stopped to visit relatives in Atlanta on the way to John's property and stopped again overnight on way home. Comments were that it was obvious how much we relaxed and enjoyed ourselves just from looking and talking to us. It was a much-needed vacation. Thanks John for making it an enjoyable one. You could not have been a better host/owner.
