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.

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.

Comfortable and homey

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. There was lots of room but we mainly used the lanai we never ate a meal in the house partly because we got fantastic weather if I had any suggestions it would be to spend some time fixing a few little things, like the cement work around the pool, loose tile, mainly cosmetic. Nothing that would change the atmosphere We enjoyed our family meal at Fords Garage excellent food and neat place hope to return another year. Toni was great,any questions we had were answered quickly

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing! The home is beautiful and the owners truly have thought of everything to make it feel like a home away from home. The property is well maintained and always nice and clean. This was our second year choosing this house and if I get my way, we'll be using it for many more years!

10 STARS!!!!

  • 5 of 5

When you walk through the entrance you are greeted by a tranquil waterfall that flows into a pond that is surrounded with flowers. It is difficult to form into words how perfect this house is, it is upper class and comfortable, it accommodates anything your party may want to do: swim in the beautiful warm salt water pool, which has a deep end as well as a large selection of pool toys/games and floats.

The outdoor area was the focus during our stay, it has a flat screen TV suspended from the ceiling, assessable by remote but did not take up space, ceiling fans, washer/dryer, sink, bar, bar ware, bar stools, gas grill, dinner table, chairs, lounges etc.. We were rarely in the house except to sleep or prepare meals, the kitchen is well stocked w all cooking utensils, everything, you name it, you will find it.

The Baja room is lovely and inviting, a few mornings when I was up before the rest of the crowd I sat in the chair by the electric fireplace and turned it on to enjoy the dancing little flames and marvel at just how perfect our vacation has been.

The living room is open giving the flow of the house ease and rightness, mirrored walls reflected plants and sunlight as a sense of freedom came with the many large sliding doors. The master bedroom ample, furnished comfortably and w full bath. The other 2 bedrooms are both nice size, and share a full bath, w lots of towels for all. I loved the guest house: a very comfortable space w full bath. It put me in the middle of everything yet was insulated well enough that when I went to bed and the others remained up and out side by the pool or on the dock fishing my sleep was not interrupted. We roasted marshmallows over the fire pit and used the bikes several times to tour around. This Location is superb!!! We travelled between 30min - 1 hour and enjoyed Sanibel, Captiva, Lovers Key, Fort Myer's Beach multiple times. We visited and spent the day at the Shell Factory and Nature Park, I highly recommend it all! SO I give this wonderful home a 10. It will meet all of your needs and desires to make your vacation the one dreams are made out of. Lastly and most importantly Toni (the owner) was so easy to communicate with, she really assisted in making any transaction smooth and positive.
