About Toni

We are from NJ but enjoy the warmth of the people and weather in Cape Coral as much as possible.

Toni purchased this house in 2008

Why Toni chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We visited Cape Coral at the recommendation of friends and were delighted with its layout and location. There are so many great restaurants and watching the sunset from the yacht club deck is totally relaxing, especially when local talent serenade you.

What makes this house unique

This property was so distinctly unique compared to others we looked at. With it's fishpond and footbridge inside the lanai and the separate guest house, we felt it would be a great place for travelers to stretch out and relax. It is perfect for large crowds and entertaining. We spent a lot of time redoing and expanding the tropical gardens that surround the house and created many places to sit and take in the ambience. It is always possible to find a quiet spot to be alone if the mood strikes you. The shops and restaurants are within walking or biking distance and the neighbors are fantastic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You cannot beat the price for the rental. The owner includes everything in one price. There is no extra cost for cleaning or electricity if you go over a certain kilowatt hours, or extra cost for guest(s) over 4. There is a security deposit of $300.00, but this is expected of any rental. The home easily accommodates 4 couples with the all bedrooms having queen size beds. There are bikes, fishing poles, pool toys, and board games for both adults and children. We caught 6 catfish and a rock bass using small pieces of hotdogs. A manatee swam by one night. Boaters passing by always waved and gave encouragement to those fishing. Everything you need to get started is already there. The owner is great to work with.

Perfect set-up!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our time at Toni's house! Toni was friendly and responsive and the set-up of the house/pool/dock allowed all 3 of our families the privacy and the group togetherness we were seeking. Cape Coral beach, Boathouse Tiki Bar/Restaurant, and the playground at Rotary Park were all very close, clean, convenient, and fun! Great time!

  • 5 of 5

It was by far the nicest place we have booked. Perfect lay out for family. We never used the inside at all, not because it was bad, but the deck and pool area is that perfect. What a layout for vacation.

Funtastic Family Vacation Home.

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (myself, wife, four children, and two oldest sons' girlfriends) enjoyed a wonderful time in this home. After driving 24 straight hours from Illinois, we were exhausted and found the house warm and inviting. The pictures well represented the rooms, lanai, and outside. We did not have to worry about appliances, linens, bath towels, pool towels, plates, cups, utensils, etc. everything was there and well thought out. Movies and games to enjoy when we were not swimming in the pool. I am not a pool type of guy, but I spent more than a few evenings enjoying the water. Of course, my kids lived in the water. The location was very close to grocery stores (I lost count at the number of Publix receipts I have), restaurants (you've got to try Paradise Pizza), drug stores (CVS and Walgreen's), hardware stores, and not to mention not too far from the beaches. Toni was prompt and courteous in responding to e-mail and telephone inquiries. It was a pleasure dealing with her. The neighborhood was quiet and it was refreshing having neighbors smile and greet you while you were out walking or biking. Although the weather was quite warm during our July stay, the ceiling fans made the house feel cool. I have asked my family to let me know what they liked and did not like about the house, but only got positive comments. We would like to return again some day with our parents to enjoy this lovely retreat.

better than expected, beautifully set up

  • 5 of 5

We loved the open spaces and generous lanai area with bar and greenery was so pleasant and welcoming. Everything was in good order when we arrived and I was impressed with all the extra comforts of home provided. I would love to use this house again, thanks for sharing it.
