Manatees at the Dock! Amazing Views! Heated Salt Water Pool
average rating of 4.9344263 based on 61 reviews

Perfect home in a perfect location !

  • 5 of 5

I spent two weeks in this lovely home. It has everything you could possibly need . The pool is large and heated. I can't say enough about the views. Relaxing in or near the pool, listening to the palm trees blow and watching dolphins play every day was one of my favorite activities. This house was so much more like a true home than a vacation rental. It really was prefect. I highly recommend this house. I will be going back !

We had an amazing week at this property

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this beautiful home. We had the best time!! The kids loved playing in the pool and I loved relaxing on the dock. The pool heater works well and easily kept the pool around 88 degrees for the week we were there (for an extra charge). The view is amazing!!!! We saw dolphins almost everyday from the dock, unfortunately we didn't see any manatees. We also had a duck family with four babies, which were fun to see everyday. The house was very comfortable and perfect for our family of 5. Although it is not a high end rental, I feel like it is a very good value. We enjoyed using the bikes and kayaks everyday and they were all in good condition. Also, the area is excellent for long morning walks. I loved seeing all the owls in the neighborhood!! The house provides everything you could possibly need. We were very sad when our vacation came to an end...we truly loved it here!!!

AMAZING!!!! Have kids? Group? Bringing mom? Stay here.

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing and is in the perfect location. Whether you are looking for more action in Fort Meyers or the quietness of sanibel and captiva-- this is the perfect spot for you! The house is awesome. The open concept was lovely especially with the view to the canal. There were dolphins playing outside every am. The area has a lot of good local restaurants, grocery stores and even an outlet mall. The neighborhood is quiet and the one neighbor I did chat with was very kind. We enjoyed taking the kayaks down the channel. I have 4 kiddos ages 14-7 and they all kept asking "can we live here!?" The kitchen is very well equipped. There is a cooler, beach chairs, sand toys and an umbrella for your beach outings. There is a grill outside with a lovely place to sit and eat. It's decorated so perfect. Nautical theme. Light and airy. Beds were comfortable. Clean. I loved that there was a dishwasher as well as a washer and dryer-- that is always a welcome addition. Lovely selection of books to read as well. The layout of the house was wonderful for a family with little kids and would be great for families traveling together as well. Even the water pressure in the shower was great! No complaints. I have already told several of my friends about this property and we will be back. I am plotting an extended girls weekend. We love this area so much. It was our first time here and it couldn't have been better. Sue was responsive before rental as well in regards to some questions I had about the property. Our first time renting with homeaway-- amazing experience and I will use it again!! Such a great value for the price.

Great location at the end of a wide canal with quick access to the river, superb management.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this home. It is in a great location. The owner recommended a boat rental service who offers a discount to her customers, which was super. The house is well appointed with plenty of kitchen supplies, extra pillows, blankets, etc. It was a clean and welcoming place to call home while we were on vacation. From the beginning booking to the final security deposit refund, all aspects of management are handled professionally and promptly. A first-rate rental!

Spring Break

  • 4 of 5

Property was perfect for our family vacation. House was very well stocked with everything you need. Access to the river was a very quick ride out of the channel. Rented a boat for 3 days and docked at house. The layout of the house worked well for the family and the dog. The home is close to many restaurants and services in town.

Great Location In Cape Coral

  • 4 of 5

The house and property are perfect for couples or a family. The pool area and dock/deck are amazing. The view of the wide canal is great in the morning when I like my quiet "me" time. Of all the houses I have rented this one was the most stocked with everyday needs. The fenced yard was great for our dog who loved chasing the many lizards. The lanai has a doggy door which our dog learned to use after several days. The only negative is the location of the 2nd bathroom in relation to the 3rd bedroom - it all the way across the house.
