About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautifully decorated and spacious 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in NW Cape Coral (suburb of Fort Myers). This home is the answer if you want all the luxury of an expensive vacation, but the price of an economy vacation! The 14x28 (Salt Water) HUGE POOL has a HOT TUB and both are heated with a heater (not solar as most are) to 80F and 104F for your comfort (and warmer in the summer months!). It has a private lanai with patio set, lounge chairs, BBQ and privacy!

The 2200 sq ft, spacious home (built in 2006) has a large, open concept family room overlooking the pool area, with a 48” HD TV with Cable and DVD player (over 150 channels). A separate office, with free Wi-Fi throughout, eating area and large dining room, and breakfast bar. The kitchen has a side-by-side fridge with ice machine, Stove, Microwave, Dishwasher and all the kitchen gadgets you need (including a blender to make those tropical drinks in!).

Tile and laminate complete the main living areas.

The bedrooms all have pillow top mattresses, high-end linens and plush towels. Each bedroom (4) has its own dresser and closet so you can move right in. Use in the Washer and Dryer and pack light!

The Master Suite is luxury in itself. The Queen sized bed is heaven itself! Separate en-suite bathroom with his and hers sinks, walk-in shower, and a beautiful soaker tub as well as a room-sized walk-in closet. For those quiet evenings at home, you can watch your own private TV, and have your own entrance to the lanai (for midnight swims).

You can tour the area and visit the beautiful Sanibel Island, Marco Island and the rich and famous in Naples or do the tourist beach in Fort Myers. For a trip back in time, be sure to visit Pine Island (nearby). If you want a longer road trip, visit Orlando or Miami (each only 2.5 hours away). White sand beaches on the Gulf side are just like the Caribbean.

You won't regret this vacation. Book soon - dates disappear (and there is no down season in Florida)!

About Rhonda Scharf

We are a Canadian couple (Ottawa ON) who are looking forward to retirement, and we started getting ready early! Rhonda is a motivational speaker who travels often, and likes the get away weekends to our home when possible, and Warren is Rhonda's office support professional. We love our home, and until we can become full time snowbirds, we want to share it with others.

Rhonda Scharf purchased this house in 2009

Why Rhonda Scharf chose Cape Coral

We bought this home because we wanted a quiet residential area for vacation. We are tired of the expensive and busy tourist traps, and wanted to feel like we weren't visitors, but belonged to the area.

What makes this house unique

We love the proximity to the coast, and the constant breeze (which is important for the Florida summer heat). We are very close to all amenities, but enjoy the open spaces, the privacy and the fact that it is quiet all the time! No white noise, no city noise, no party noise - just blue skies, fresh breezes and relaxation. Florida is perfect as our vacation retreat any time of the year.

Clean pool home for large families!

  • 5 of 5

I just had my 7th baby and wanted to recover while my children enjoyed their summer vacation. This home was the answer!

The home was large enough to accommodate AND entertain us all, including visiting parents and friends. The large pool kept my children occupied during the day while I stayed cool and covered in the covered lanai. At night we watched endless movies as a family on the large screen TV.

Rhonda is a very responsive contact and really takes care of her home and guests. I would recommend this home to anyone who wants to relax in a clean, pool home. Thank you for the great stay!

All as promised

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was spotless, spacious and inviting. Loved the pool area. Spent a lot of time there! My only recommendation would be to update the grill.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback. We do replace the grill every 18 months (the Florida air is tough on the grill), and it will be replaced this summer. Thanks for enjoying our home.

Perfect house, perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of space for 9 of us in Rhonda's house, and house, pool and spa were all immaculately clean. There were plenty of clean bath and beach towels, and inflatables for the pool. It was great to have the laundry room, especially with the small children. There was nothing at all lacking. We loved to go out to visit the fabulous beaches, and loved to come home again to sit by the pool or take a dip. A great quiet spot too. We came at spring break and the weather was perfect everyday. The only downside was that everyone else had the same idea as us and the roads were busy!

Would recommend this property unreservedly. Thank you Rhonda!

Great base camp to explore Gulf Coast beaches!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at this lovely home. Cape Coral is a perfect location to explore Gulf Coast beaches to the north and south. We went to a different beach every day the first week, then repeated ones we liked the second week. This home was a great place to come back to at the end of the day to relax, make dinner, and hang out in the pool and spa. The owner was great at communication and answered my questions quickly. I would recommend this to a friend.

Wonderful time in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Spent Christmas weekend in this beautiful home. The home was prepared for our arrival. It's in a good location, not too far from stores and the beach. Enough space for 8 people without feeling cramped. The pool and jacuzzi was a hit for the children, who spent most of their time in it. Overall, had a wonderful time in this beautiful home with family over the Christmas holiday.
