About Kevin and Sheila

We visited Cape Coral on a family vacation and fell in love with the city and it's friendly atmosphere The location of can not be is minutes away from many beautiful beaches, wildlife, all kinds of shopping and tons of activities like kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and boat excursions.

Why Kevin and Sheila chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Location, location, location!!! The property has direct gulf access in a matter of minutes. It is ideally located to all types of amenities in Fort Myers and Cape Coral. It is a short 20 minute drive from the Fort Myers airport, Sanibel and Fort Myers beaches.

What makes this house unique

Relax by the canal under the tropical tiki hut, or swim in the soothing water of the solar heated water pool. Walk, bike or drive 1/2 mile to the nature preserve and rent kayaks to explore the Florida outdoors. Or go a few blocks to shopping, restaurants or movie theatre. Grocery stores only blocks away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

since the first time we saw it! It was everything we always look for in a vacation home and then some!!We spent most of our time here in the pool or relaxing by the lanai. The kitchen is a chef's dream, so beautiful and open. The bar family room and pool table area is so spacious for entertaining. All the furnishings and decorations throughout the house are a harmonious blend of beauty and good taste! Thank you so much for your hospitality and for making our stay a very pleasant one. It was a joy dealing with both of you ! We are looking forward to our next stay - but next time it will have to be for more than the nine days we stayed because they went by way too fast! We will recommend you guys to everyone we know!

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Cape Coral. This was our third time to the area, but our first time at this property and we will be back to this property next year. Everything from the bikes, kayaks, pool, dock, & pool table was thoroughly enjoyed by my family. The owners could not of been more attentive. I would highly recommend this property.

Very clean, awesome master bedroom and bathroom

  • 3 of 5

Your house was beautiful. The only thing that was a complaint was no TV in 2nd bedroom. More of a "family" home, not for two couples. The shower was not working right had to switch on/ off breaker to get water to come on,also garbage disposal was not working properly. All and all was a nice vacation, nice pool area and Lanai. Would suggest TV in other bedroom with queen bed, and possibly an adjoining bathroom.

Thank you for renting us your house.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your time at our home! We attempt to do everything we can to anticipate what our guests preferences might be, but as individuals vary so greatly it is impossible to guess at everyones' personal tastes. We strive to make our photos and description provide a clear "picture" of our home. We try to be clear that the 2nd bathroom is shared by bedroom 2 and 3 and not directly connected to either, but a step outside the door of each. We do provide 4 televisions in separate areas of the home so that multiple parties can watch multiple stations at the same time in relative privacy. Unfortunately, maintenance issues can arise in any home. We did have someone there within the day to address both the shower control issue and the garbage disposal. Both issues were dealt with in a timely manner.

Felt like home!!

  • 5 of 5

Clean And comfortable. Pool 85 to 90° daily. Very well-stocked from spices in the kitchen to movies and games . Mother manatee and baby came at least twice a week. TV and surround sound even out by the pool. Quiet neighborhood and nice neighbors. Owners easy to get a hold of and pleasant. Larger than I thought, people felt comfortable and at home.

Large, well equipped vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Five girlfriends spent 4 nights in Cape Coral at this home. It is extremely well equipped and very homey. There was plenty of space for all of us either to be together or separate. The home is very near to shopping and restaurants and close to the main highway. I can't think of anything else to add that hasn't be covered by other reviews. Loved this place and would highly recommend it. Thank you Kevin and Sheila!
