Why Kevin and Sheila chose Cape Coral

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!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin and Sheila were great to work with! Very responsive and accommodating. The house is beautiful and very well stocked. We didn’t have to use the air conditioning at all because of the beautiful layout of the home. Can open all of the sliding doors and not worry about bugs because of the screened in lanai. It didn’t hurt that the weather was absolutely perfect for our stay. The pool area is great with awesome ledges and seating in the pool. The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock everyday with the fishing poles provided. Also got a lot of use from the bikes. It is a nice location only a few blocks from the eco preserve. All in all a nice, relaxing vacation. Thanks!

Great base for a stay in Fort Myers!

  • 5 of 5

This property is excellent for families! We had a 10 year old and a 1 year old along with 3 adults. The pool was a great source of entertainment and there was plenty of space for all of us! Great layout with lots of space between the bedrooms. The bathrooms were beautiful as well. The kitchen was functional and great for cooking. Lots of TVs so everyone could watch what they wanted. We loved the pool table and bar room and had a few movie nights! The tiki hut on the dock was a great place to sit and be at peace. Would definitely stay here again. The owners were very helpful to all inquiries while we were staying there.

Excellent home accommodation with a number of extras. Lovely pool. Great location for beaches.

  • 4 of 5

Really nice house and comfortable furnishings. The bar area with the pool table was brilliant for evening entertainment for the family. The heated pool was fabulous with lovely canal views from the tiki hut. Easy access to Walmart for shopping and in easy driving to local beaches and other activities. Recommend Banana Bay Tours for a dolphin and eco boat trip.

This house is amazing. It has everything you need to feel at home. It's big enough to enjoy yourself with the family without being on to of each other. There were 2 living areas separated by French doors off the kitchen that made it nice to give you privacy. The pool table and games were nice for when it was raining. Short drive to the ocean. The pool was really nice. We enjoyed sitting on the dock and watching the fish jump. The bedrooms were all spacious andI habe never had such a comfortable bed when traveling, and I've stayed at many places. It's nice to have the private amenities and kitchen to cook in and be able to wash your clothes if needed. Can't wait to return next year.
