About The Owner

We LOVE SW Florida so purchased a home to spend extensive time here. We chose a large home and furnished it with lots of bedding for friends & family to come and visit with us. Each bedroom is very large. Our Seashells bedroom with 1 queen + 1 Full beds will accommodate a family or several kids. Come and enjoy our home. Our local management company will assist you during your stay.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Cape Coral

A SHORT BOAT RIDE to local restaurants at Tarpon Point and Cape Harbour, Sanibel beaches, Ft. Myers beach and the gulf of Mexico. There's great fishing nearby. We also like boating in the Pine Island Sound or to Cayo Costa State Park where you can dock and take the free tram over to the beach. Or dock at Cabbage Key and dine at the famous Jimmy Buffet restaurant.

What makes this house unique

Close proximity to open water. Most homes in Cape Coral require long commutes at idle speed to get anywhere. We are boaters and wanted quick access to 'full throttle'. At only 10 houses from the river, you can be out in the Gulf of Mexico in minutes. If you are an avid fisherman, quick access allows for morning AND evening trips if you so desire. Sailboat access with no bridges.

Perfect for Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

I was so lucky to find this vacation rental for a long weekend. My family, which consists of five adults and two boys under the age of three, had a great time staying at Mariner's Landing. The uniquely shaped pool was the highlight of the house, with a very deep end for the adults, and a nearby shade-cover for resting near the shallow end while the kids played. The shape allowed everyone to talk and feel together. Surrounded by lush green and the canal, the house has all windows on that side. I had work to do and sat at the kitchen island and could see the family playing in the pool. There were plenty of pool toys and large towels to use, and a tiled-bathroom on the lanai so you didn't have to dry off or traipse water inside.

The house is a one story that is a bit unusual in floor plan/seating arrangements, but it really works for a large family or multiple couples. Our little toddler loved riding his trike around the large kitchen island while we prepared dinner. We had large family dinners around the large table in the kitchen area (avoiding the family heirloom formal dinning area). The furniture was of nice quality, but not too formal, which is perfect with little ones. As others have stated there are plenty of condiments in the house in case you forgot something (which we did), and the grocery is close by the house. My husband and I enjoyed the split floor plan, since the master suite was on the other side of the house from the kids and grand-kids. Everyone said they slept great, good quality beds, and nice-sized rooms.

Janice, the owner, is very accommodating and generally wants you to enjoy her home. She has property managers in the area, and they stopped by to make sure everything was well. Our daughter and her family arrived into the area earlier than expected, and Janice allowed them early entry into the house which was so helpful so the boys could nap. We received our deposit, paid in full, in less than a week. If we are ever in the area again we would stay there, but longer and utilize the boat.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a couple of weeks for Major League baseball spring training. The house is just as advertised and photographed. Not extremely high-end but extremely comfortable, just what we were looking for. We do a rental like this each spring so I'm pretty well versed in this market. The pool and lanai are both bigger than I'm used to. Sleeping arrangements - there are plenty. Beds, pull-outs, and more. Nice when you have 2 people who don't want to share a bed.

The rental went very smoothly. We dealt directly with the owner and communication was prompt and friendly. Our deposit was returned as promised.

My pet peeve is rental houses that remove everything from the kitchen and pantry between renters. This was the opposite. Plenty of staples and other non-perishable foodstuffs.

Bikes in garage and kayaks available for rent down the street. Nice neighborhood.

Great place for larger family / groups

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a week and the property was a great place for the adults to relax and the kids to play in the pool. We were 6 adults and 4 children and we slept comfortably in the four bedrooms. The house was equipped with everything we needed/wanted, including wifi and a huge HDTV. The pool was big enough for a morning swim for the adults and very nice to play in for the children. The house were in a area close to shops and restaurants and we went out jogging an walking in the very friendly neighbourhood. The owner is very easy to contact and was very quick in here mail responses. She also gave us many ideés on what to do when we visited. The house was clean, comfortable and perfect for a group of our size. Thank's Janice for letting us stay in you lovely home, it was great.

My husband and I along with three other couples had the best time here for our "couples only" getaway! Everyone enjoyed the layout of the house and the oversized pool. Renting the boat is a definite must for some fun island hopping in the gulf! Every person in our group wants to book again for next year! Thanks so much Janice for allowing us to have a fabulous Florida gulf experience by enjoying your wonderful house and boat! We will for sure be back again!

Our family stayed here for a week and the property was a great place for the adults to relax and the kids to fish and swim. The house slept 6 adults and 3 children comfortably and was perfect for a group with diverse interests. The house was equipped with everything we needed/wanted, including wifi and a huge HDTV which was awesome for our movie nights.

The pool was a hit with both adults and children with toys and floats galore. Under this screened area is a large dining table, a shaded lounging area, and outdoor access to a bathroom and shower.

The owner was easy to work with as was the captain who gave us lots of great instruction and information on the use of the awesome boat. The boat was clean, comfortable and perfect for a group of our size. The home has close and easy access to restaurants, grocery store, drug store, and bait shop.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home! It was a pleasure!

Everything about the property, the neighbourhood and the owners was FANTASTIC !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mariners Landing for 10 weeks. When you are in an area for that long, you see the real story. The pool became my wife's second home! My daily walks introduced me to a great neighbourhood. Very safe and friendly. I fished with my grandsons off the dock with some success. Janice, our host, responded quickly to any questions we had. (The new LARGE screen TV was a wonderfull addition.). We definitely would return to Mariner's Landing.
