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

This was our second visit to one of Sue's houses. If you have any questions or issues Jim responds immediately and then you just relax and enjoy what Cape Coral and the Ft Myers area has to offer. If you've never been in the area before Sue has created a folder provided information for all the activities available. I highly recommend staying at any of Sue's properties. She is the best hostess in the Cape!

We travelled as a family of 7 to this wonderful, beautifully furnished and decorated home. As soon as

we walked in - it was a family 'WOW' seeing the foyer stone entrance and the Tommy Bahama furniture.

The kitchen was updated with beautiful wood cabinets, granite, glass backsplash and high end Stainless

Appliances. We found the over 2100 sq. ft. great as we never felt we were 'on top of each other' -

having the extra family room and large outside patio with dining table/pool and dock added to that feeling. The great weather - quiet and safe location - and great Restaurants closeby made this the best

overall Vacation for all of us. We were not quite ready to even leave - the grandchildren especially. We

would like to return. The Owners of this home as well as their other properties deserve a 5 STAR RATING as they are the consummate entrepreneurs.

they are the Consummate Entrepreneurs of running a Rental Company

"Our Happy Place"

  • 5 of 5

Honestly this home is as shown in all the beautiful photos. Very well maintained, very comfortable, and equipped with everything you would ever need. We loved our daily walks and bike rides around the friendly neighborhoods. The views out the back of this home of the canals are quite outstanding. Sunsets can't be beat. The screened in pool area and the dock area are perfect for relaxing and were our two favorite spots!

Property owners were prompt and efficient. Location of home works well for trips to Fort Myers and area around the coast. We hope to come again some day!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we have stayed at a property owned by this same owner, and it is easy to work with them. The previous property is in this same quiet neighborhood. This property is at the intersection of two very wide canals and the view is more like a bay or cove than a canal.

It has everything necessary for a comfortable vacation, and Mrs. Larson even added an item to accommodate our large, mostly senior citizen group.

We found everything exactly as represented by the photos (or better) just as we had at the house the previous year.

Although it is in a quiet, residential neighborhood, everything that you need is handy just a short drive away: Dunkin’ Donuts is right at the end of the street leading into the neighborhood and many restaurants, bakeries, bagel shops, bait shops, supermarket, Walgreens, and a Walmart—as well as many other shops, bars, and entertainment are just minutes away.

Incredible location, Everything you need, perfect layout, breathtaking Sunrise and Sunset.

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 adults and 4 kids, we enjoyed the house so much we barely left. My family and I took day trips to Fort Myers, Naples, and surrounding Cape Coral visiting the Shell factory, Go Karts, Flea Market, Mini Putt, Beach and shopping.

We have rented other houses in the area in the past, however this has been our best yet, the luxury of having all the kitchen appliances, fishing rods, kayaks and the pool made it easy to keep busy or just relax. We loved the window in the kitchen that accessed the pool area for breakfast, the bathroom attached to the pool was also a bonus. I honestly can't complain at all. The place was spotless. We would definitely book again!!! Thanks for allowing us to make unforgettable memories to last a lifetime:)
