Guestbook comments from the owner

The weather was wonderful for our 2 month stay.

My husband calls this a very sweet property and he is right. We have had several discussions about how much we would use the pool if we had things set up at home like you do here. We know we would certainly eat nearly all our meals outside like we do here. Weather permitting of course, we are not crazy.

You probably have the best stocked kitchen of any unit we have rented. You have all the essentials without overdoing.

Thank you.

Outstanding value for a beautiful and well-equipped home

  • 5 of 5

We love everything about this house that quickly felt like home. Comfortable and pretty with everything we needed. The Groves have thought of everything for those who come to stay and we were so thankful for the space, the coffee and tea already there for us, and the baby equipment so we didn't have to fly with all that extra stuff. The house was very clean and spacious. The decor is lovely. The property managers were a delight to work with and nothing could have been better.

If we ever need to rent a home in the area again, this is the ONE we want. Thank you for a great stay!

We really enjoyed exploring the area: Cape Coral, Pine Island, Sanibel Island, Bonita Beach. A lot of great restaurants. The house is kept immaculate and is very comfortable. We had everything we needed here. the owner has provided a number of magazines and brochures on things to do in the area. Would definitely recommend!

Capegroves doesn't disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd visit to Capegroves and we really enjoyed our stay! This is such a great house... nice quiet neighbourhood, everything you need within easy driving distance, and the house itself is clean and well-maintained and has every possible convenience at your fingertips. But the best part is the pool - we LOVE the pool. Hanging out in the cool water when its 35oC outside, binge-watching TV poolside, lunching on the covered patio, or BBQ-ing in the evenings, or just relaxing on a lounger with a book - it's the ultimate getaway! Last but not least, doggies are welcome, and our little one feels almost at home in Capegroves as she does back in Montreal... including the doggie-door giving easy access to the manicured back yard. Thank you again Luanne and Ken who quietly came over whenever we needed (to fix the toilet, clean the pool, etc) and to Kathy and Rick for renting out their home. Hope to be back! 5 stars... better than an hotel, any day!

Relaxing and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything we needed! Lots of room as well. There were board games, dvd's, cd's, pool toys, bikes, pretty much you name it! I really liked the fact that the kitchen had salt and pepper. Things you always like to have but don't want to buy. Owner was very available as were the folks were local. We would stay here again for sure! Very close to beaches. Great restaurants. Stay here, you will not be disappointed!
