About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

This beautiful Gulf-access, pool home is situated on an oversized corner lot on the Capri Canal. Located in a quiet neighborhood with no thru traffic, this roomy, gorgeous 3 BR + Den / 2 bath offers an open floor plan with volume ceilings, and large windows to really let in the sunlight and tropical views. Complementing the open feeling are deluxe details including crown moldings, ceramic tile floors set on the diagonal, etched-glass doors and a Stainless-steel kitchen with granite counters.

Feel like a millionaire in the Deluxe Master Suite. Measuring about 700 sq.ft./50 sq.m. it has a walk-in tiled shower (big enough for company), separate garden tub, dual sinks/vanities, a separate toilet room, and walk-in closet. Of course, it includes a huge, tropically themed bedroom with a King-size bed. The stereo CD clock radio includes an iPod dock, with an Old-Time-Radio CD collection in the drawer below. The bedroom has direct access to the pool area.

Enjoy the a beautiful view of the pool, canal and surroundings from the Queen bedroom with its direct access to the pool. Get into the beach mood in the shell-decorated Twin Bedroom, which is separated from the Queen bedroom by the second bathroom. The Den/Game Room has its own HDTV. a game table with games and a desk with an ancient, sloooow laptop computer (recommended: bring your own). This room also has a futon with linens.

All pillows, mattresses and even the box springs have dust-mite and bedbug-proof covers. We don't have the the bugs, and we don't want them.

Adjacent to the dining room with its scalloped-glass-topped table is the exceptionally well-stocked Granite and Stainless Steel kitchen. The list of electrical appliances includes an iced-tea maker, a griddle, a George Foreman grill, a crock pot, blender, toaster and a stand/hand mixer to complement the full set of stainless pots and pans. The content of the spice cabinet varies, depending on what we and our guests have used and contributed. The coffee section includes a filter coffee maker, Kuerig, and a coffee grinder. For espresso fans, there is a steam-type espresso maker for the more adventurous beginners and a 15 Bar machine for the experienced.

Relax on a lounger in the huge, screen-enclosed sun deck, or in the shade of the lanai with overhead fan. Or just float or swim in the heated pool with its planters and tranquil spillover water feature. Read a book from our library, or make a quick lunch with the gas grill with multiple burners, plus a side burner for warming. The Lanai includes a ceramic-topped table with six chairs.

Enjoy your evenings outside or in the Great Room with one of our books, or use the video library with the HDTV with surround sound, cable, DVD player and VCR. Or play your own videos or tunes through the iPod dock. For a change of pace, spend some time in the Den/Game Room.

Keep in touch with free WiFi with wireless printer, or use one of the cordless phones with free long distance service to the US and Canada.

And, of course, two sets of linens, washer & dryer and garage with opener.

When you have had enough relaxation, try the elliptical machine. There are also fishing rods in the garage, and the brackish-water canal on the back edge of our property has produced catfish, salt-water fish and the occasional manatee sighting.


We bought our home in the summer of 2010. Located in the highly desirable Surfside Area of Southwest Cape Coral, it has been completely refurbished. We spent months furnishing and decorating it. Now we have decided to rent it seasonally during the times that we are not there. Because we use this as a second home, you will find that it has everything you need to feel as if you were at home. We do not treat the home as a rental and the condition and amenities will surprise you.

One difference between a house and a home is the little things you don't miss until you need them: Paper clips. Flashlight. Pliers and screwdrivers (even the eyeglass size). Note pads. Pens and pencils. Batteries, battery tester and charger. A desk. Spare toothbrush. Spare reading glasses. Espresso machines. Cutting boards. Beach things (wheeled cart, towels, umbrella, chairs, mats, coolers, etc), and lots more.

About Tom & Betsy Metzger

We are retired professionals from Belleville, IL, 15 miles SE of St. Louis. Although we continue to travel, we enjoy just relaxing in our Cape Coral home.

We chose Cape Coral because of the location, the friendliness of the people, access to the Gulf and the winter temperature, which is among the warmest on Gulf coast.

Tom & Betsy Metzger purchased this house in 2010

Why Tom & Betsy Metzger chose Cape Coral

We bought our home in the summer of 2010. Located in the highly desirable Surfside Area of Southwest Cape Coral, it was completely refurbished, but empty. We spent all Fall furnishing and decorating it, and still are not finished.

An important reason for choosing this property is the beautiful tropical view from the lanai, pool deck and king and queen bedrooms. Another is the attractive but practical ceramic tile floor (set on the diagonal) in all of the open areas, plus carpet in the bedrooms.

Our son likes to call this his 'Southern office'. He will set up his laptop on the lanai table, and spend a week conducting business while enjoying the view. His favorite treat is grilling a slab of fresh grouper bought form Merrick Seafood or from one of the fishermen on Pine Island Road in Matlacha.

Use our fishing equipment in the brackish water canal just beyond the pool. You won't catch grouper, but these brackish waters are reported to be home to most of the fish found in the Gulf.

What makes this house unique

Good privacy, great view, incredibly well furnished with almost anything you might need to make you feel you are guests in our home...because you are!

The decor is an eclectic mix of old Florida, contemporary accents, bits of whimsey and artwork produced by family members.

The pool deck has sun all year around. The large shelf just inches below the pool's water surface is a great place to keep cool while sunning. Fishing from the concrete seawall is almost always productive, especially if you like to catch catfish.

Spring Break for family of 7

  • 5 of 5

The home was everything we expected. Very nice neighborhood. Great Fishing in the canal behind the house. The home owners were accessible to us by phone and email. This is a plus when property management companies are involved. The house, pool and amenities were amazing. My wife loved the kitchen and it was equipped with everything we needed and more.

What an absolutely wonderful Florida vacation home! Because we had never seen the house, did not know the area, and there were no previous renters comments, we were somewhat anxious about renting this home sight unseen for two months. We should not have worried. This is a beautiful, artistically decorated, immaculately clean home with many amenities. Great attention has been given to detail and everything about it is very conducive to relaxing and enjoying Florida. We ate most of our meals outside, swam almost every day and just enjoyed sitting around the pool reading or listening to music.

The owners are very responsive and great to work with. The property manager is very knowledgeable and equally responsive. We loved the neighborhood and the proximity of the house to Matlacha and Pine Island. We spent many happy days shopping in the quaint stores in Matlacha, enjoying the scenery, trying out different restaurants, and buying fresh seafood. It is an easy drive to other areas such as Sanibel Island or to Fort Myers Beach, although I must say, we preferred just staying at home. There are great restaurants in Cape Coral and we loved the easy atmosphere of the entire area. Our favorite restaurants were Maria's for Italian food and Brew Babies for a special lunch or dinner.

Our grandson caught two nice size fish off the dock of the next door neighbor and was very proud of himself. He took pictures of the two catfish to share with his friends back home. We were impressed with the number of families with children in the immediate neighborhood and how friendly everyone was to us.

We cannot wait to return next winter to enjoy again our Florida “home away from home.”
