Why Chris Saunders chose Cape Coral

A group of friends vacationed in Florida quite often and loved the relaxing atmosphere it offers. We decided to buy a home away from home. Southwest Florida is far enough away from the hustle and bustle and yet so close to so much. We stay at the house a few times a year and it is harder to leave each time. Whether you are looking to simply relax in the pool or go out and explore, there is so much to do...minutes from Ft Myers Beach and a short boat ride to Sanibel Island, there is something for everyone. We hope you enjoy our vacation home as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

There is boat available, waterfront (property is on a quiet canal that connects to Caloosahatchee River). My favorite thing to do is wake up early and take a 10 minute bike ride to the pier, grab a coffee and watch the sunrise over the Caloosahatchee River while the baby dolphins make a morning appearance. We also enjoy taking a boat ride and exploring the nearby islands.

Very comfortable, welcoming home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Alcedonia very much. The pool was lovely, we especially enjoyed all of the mosaic sea creatures on the bottom and sides. The house was very clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable. The fenced in yard was terrific for our dog and the landscaping is beautiful. The beds were very comfortable. The location is terrific, quiet street and neighborhood but very near restaurants.

Great home with an awesome pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. The pool was our favorite spot since it was hot ouside. The location can't be beat, close to Ft. Myers beach and all the restaurants in Cape Coral. We hope to rent this place again in the future. Extremely clean and very comfortable beds.

Wonderful and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and three children absolutely enjoyed our week here! The housewas great, clean, modern and well layed out! Everything we needed was right there! We enjoyed the pool, it was wonderful to sit in the shade, relax while the kids swam the day away. The canal was nice, we ate dinner several nights by the water while fishing. We caught some catfish and yhe kids loved watching the mullet jump in the evenings. We will definately be back again. Great value, if you are looking for peace and relaxation!

A great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 7 family members stay and really enjoyed the property. The location is great! It is very easy access to Fort Myers beach and Sanibel Island. Lots of restaurants and and stores easy to get to. The pool is lovely. We had a problem with the air conditioning and there was a repairman there within an hour of us contacting the property management company. We were very satisfied!
