About the property

4 Bdrm, 3 Full Baths with panoramic views.

Live the dream in the vacation home with the UNBEATABLE VIEW from every room! This west facing home sits at the intersection of two extra wide,200 foot canals providing SPECTACULAR long water views and fabulous sunsets every night.

Spend your days relaxing on the lanai, swimming in the heated pool, biking, walking in a beautiful neighborhood and fishing or boating from your own private dock. Watch dolphins, rays and fish play in the water from the comfort of your lawn chair. We just added solar heat to accompany our electric pool heat!

The perfect day doesn’t end there---watch the sunset beyond the panorama of majestic royal palms while cooking a steak on the gas grill and sipping your favorite beverage. Then, enjoy the peaceful, moonlit evening by taking an after dinner swim in the heated pool.

Once inside, you'll find spacious, light filled rooms with panoramic views of the water from every room! You'll love the sliding doors that disappear into the walls, opening the master bedroom, living room, family room and even the dining room to the screened lanai.

With 2200 square feet of living space, this split bedroom layout is perfect for couples, families or friends traveling together. The master suite with full bath is on one side of the home with the living room, dining room, kitchen, family room and laundry separating it from the other 3 bedrooms and bathrooms. The home has an open floor plan for entertaining, yet plenty of privacy for all.

The master has a king sized bed, 1 guest room has a king bed and the two guest rooms can be set up with 4 twin beds or 2 kings. This house sleeps 8 in the bedrooms. Add 2 additional portable king mattress and 2 twin size bed/couches and the home will comfortably sleep your entire group.

This is truly a home, not just a vacation rental, furnished with everything you could possibly need for a lovely, fun filled vacation! You'll only need to bring your swimsuit!

Boaters will love the 2 minute, around the corner, no bridge access to the river. It’s a quick boat or car ride to Sanibel, Captiva and the Gulf of Mexico with lots of fun park and restaurant stops in between. Ask owner for details on boat rental

About Sue Larson

Bruce is still a practicing attorney in Minneapolis and is an avid waterskier. We live on a large lake here and love all water activities and have always loved Florida for the water and weather. We accelerated the timeline of owning a retirement home in Florida after Sue battled (and survived) two different cancers over a four year time period. We learned the lesson of living our dreams now! We'd like others to live their vacation dreams in our new vacation home!

Sue Larson purchased this house in 2010

Why Sue Larson chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

When we were looking for a vacation home to buy, we checked this home out on Google Maps. One glimspe of the view of 200 foot intersecting canals and close proximity to the river and and we booked a flight to Cape Coral the next day to make an offer! We are excited to share our vacation dream home with you and know you will enjoy it just as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

There is a different, equally stunning sunset every night, it's the highlight of the day! If you are a fishing enthusiast you will enjoy cathcing large fish right off the dock and boaters are just minutes away from Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach

Perfect setting for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 was joined by 2 family members for a week at this home( 3 adults and 3 teenagers). The lay out was perfect for the teenagers to have their own space. Between the deck, the pool and the house, it was easy to find a quiet place to read and relax away from others. We spent most of our time around the pool with all of the doors to the house open. The pool was heated and well lighted for night time swimming. The window bar between the kitchen and the pool area was a favorite place for the kids to hang out and chat with whomever was cooking. The street is quiet and residential, but close to shopping and about 40 minutes to Sanibel and Ft. Myers Beaches. ( the local beach is not really much of a beach as it is on the river) The view is amazing and well worth the trip! We enjoyed the kayaks and the garage and house are well stocked with everything needed. We really felt very at home here and will be back if we get the chance!

Wonderful holiday in a fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from spending three weeks at this beautiful villa. We were a bit worried that we might be disappointed but if anything it was better than we could have hoped for. The villa is in a lovely residential area and we felt very safe. Great neighbours too. Beautifully decorated and furnished it had everything we could possibly have needed. Coming from the UK it was great that we didn't have to worry about buying anything, it was all there for us. Comfy sofas......and more importantly a comfy bed! The pool is probably the best one we've had in the 25 years we've been visiting the US, it was big and deep which is really unusual. Lovely to swim and watch the sunset every evening. Although the kitchen is really well equipped, all the appliances looked new, we ate out most days trying many of the local restaurants. Annie's for breakfast was really nice, The Boat House for evening drinks and lots of other great restaurants nearby. Bit disappointed with dinner at Ariana's Italian restaurant as it was hyped as being special. Did not feel friendly, food was average and they added $10 to the credit card bill without us knowing even when we'd left a generous cash tip on the table, not impressed. Fishing was good, and we'd recommend a trip to Sanibel for some beach fishing and shell collecting. Lots of shopping opportunities nearby as well. Sue was really brilliant to deal with and very helpful. I can't recommend this villa highly enough and hope that we can rent from Sue again in the future.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home. VERY well equipped. All you need is your swimwear. Beautiful sunsets every evening. Close to everything. Sue was very easy to work with, and got back to me with good time on everything. Most beautiful countertops I've ever seen. Loved going in the kitchen every morning to fix my tea. (3 couples and all thought it was an awesome place for vacation) Thanks Sue.

Great Time on the Water

  • 5 of 5

Had great fun using classic Florida home on the water with pool and dock. The house is on canal that opens to the river, intercoastal and gulf. We rented a 25 foot boat from the boat rental place on the adjacent canal at the beginning of the week and kept it at the houses's dock all week. Each day most of the group would adventure out in the boat to a different destination. One day we fished, one day looked for shells on the beach, one day drinking at Bonita Bills bar at the shrimp boat harbor in Fort Meyers beach. At the end of each day we would reconvene at the house to sit in the pool, watch the sun go down and cook a big meal. Pretty darn fun.

Spotless, fully equipped, very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was more than we could have hoped for. This home is exactly as described and pictured. We did not want for a thing. The location is great with several restaurants within walking distance. Most relaxing , carefree vacation our family has ever experienced.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our “guys” vacation. It has four bedrooms so each of us had our own room. The pool has solar heat which heated the pool to over 90°. We rented a boat and went boating nearly every day. When it was windy we just stayed in the Cape Coral canals and when it was calm we did venture out to the gulf.

We rode the bikes to breakfast on several occasions and went on a couple of kayak excursions, just through the canals.

The house was very comfortable and I felt right at home. The kitchen was very well-equipped although we mostly ate out.

I wish we could've stayed longer and would definitely try to stay at this house again.
