We had an amazing week and this house made it all worth it. We spent almost every day in the pool! Loved being able to make meals and socialize in the open areas. Not far from Ft. Myers beach or anything really. We enjoyed a couple restaurants in the area for the ones that wanted seafood but was able to acomidate the ones that don’t! Multiple people asking for the contact information for this house because of how much we love it! Barry was amazing with any questions we had. Definately plan on coming back soon!!

You’ll Never Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

When I saw the swimming pool as the cover photo of this listing I was hooked immediately. I then scrolled through the photos of the inside of the home and I booked right away. When we finally arrived a week ago I knew I had found the perfect home for our family. Although the amazing pool was our favorite thing, the rest of the house was just as amazing. The open layout of the home was perfect for everyone being together and nice for keeping an eye on the kiddos. It was furnished beautifully and the beds were super comfy. There was a gas fireplace on the lanai for evening chats, and the dining table made a perfect spot for our nightly game of Dominoes. The house was stocked with everything anyone would ever need and the host made sure to let you know you are welcome to use. We found we love the Cape Coral area and the location of this house made it easy to get to our favorite beaches as it was quick access to main highways. It’s location on the water made for added extra fun for kayaking , crabbing, fishing and paddleboarding before a fun filled beach day. As I am sitting here writing this review, I am wishing I could rewind the week. I will definately be back! Thank you Jolly family for allowing us to make some awesome memories!

Your Own Private 5 Star Resort

  • 5 of 5

No hesitation in recommending this wonderful home. It has EVERYTHING you need for a wonderful family vacation. The pictures do not do this place justice. There is a huge common open space for a large family to gather, prepare food, visit, play with the kids, yet enough separate retreat space for each family to have privacy and alone-time, when desired. It's a quiet neighborhood, walking friendly. There's a grocery store close enough to walk, but I recommend renting a car as most tourist attractions are about 30 minutes away. It is well worth the drive, this home is worth it!

We are a family with three adult children and two toddler grandchildren. Each family in our group had their own private bedroom, closets a plenty and private bathroom, all facing the water! The south-facing view of the water and pool area was just beautiful.

The amenities are first class. The kitchen is well stocked. Top notch appliances, big refrigerator, nice stove - everything you want or need. Plenty of seating - wherever you might want to sit - inside or out.

The pool is great for young children, who can play with a little supervision, but no need to continually hold them, as the shallow end is ample. There is an available fence that secures the pool/spa area, but leaves the patio and entertaining areas open, so you can have peace of mind about the young ones not falling into the pool, and leave the patio doors open to the beautiful outdoors.

This is truly a beautiful place, reserve with confidence - you will not regret it.

We were a family of 8 adults, 2 babies and a toddler and the house was perfect! The only thing I would change and this is beyond the owners responsibility, is to put felt pads under the chairs because someone's baby was always sleeping! Having our own bathrooms was a luxury and the kiddy part of the pool was perfect. Barry responded quickly to any inquiries and was super nice. Quiet neighborhood too. Thanks for sharing this beautiful home with us.

Very nice home

  • 4 of 5

The house is very spacious! Loved that all of the rooms had larger beds and bathrooms of their own! The pool is awesome! Very nice for younger kids! You do have to pay for electrical and heating the pool in addition to the booked price though. I missed that part when booking.

The location of the house was close to Walmart and Publix and a couple of restaurants. Not a ton of things to do in Cape Coral, so most of our outings were to ft meyer which is about 30 mins away.

Barry the owner was very pleasant to work with! Very prompt in responses and friendly!

I would recommend this Home!

Stunning vacation property

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! Had 10 people from PA, FL and NC all staying for Christmas weekend. Couldn't ask for a better property or property owner. Super clean with great views. Worth every penny!

Don't think twice about reserving this is stunning.

Cape Coral Emerges as a Destination

Surrounded by glowing destination neighbors such as Sanibel Island and Fort Myers, Cape Coral sometimes gets overlooked.

But that’s about to change in a major way, in part because of the recent christening of Southwest Florida’s first Westin property, with all the luxe and attention to detail that connotes.

Cape Coral, you ask?

Understandable. Up until 1957, it was known commonly as “the other side of the river,” because that’s where Cape Coral lies in relation to Fort Myers’ perch on the southern banks of the Caloosahatchee.

Personalities such as the late designer Lilly Pulitzer, millionaire quail-hunting preserve owner Ogden Phipps, and colorful fishing guide “Fingers” O’Bannon figured into Cape Coral history before it became one of the most ambitious development projects in the state and its third-largest city by acreage.

Mostly residential in nature, Cape Coral began in the 1980s to emerge as a tourism destination with a reputation for its rose gardens and endearing, pint-size burrowing owls.

Those very owls flashed a brief spotlight on the town, in fact, when one of Florida’s best-selling authors, Carl Hiaasen, based his first young adult novel, Hoot, in a fictional town modeled after “the Cape,” as locals call it. Moviemakers later turned Hoot into a film starring Luke Wilson.

Meanwhile, Sun Splash Family Water Park and a growing little history museum added to the attractions list. The Cape Coral Historical Museum commemorates the town’s past with rose gardens and exhibits depicting bygone eras. One replicates the ground nest of the burrowing owl.

Lacking the beaches of its neighboring islands, Cape Coral depends on its riverfront vistas to attract the watersports crowd. Cape Coral Yacht Club Park is headquarters for fishing, boating, beaching, and swimming in its pool. It is ground zero for the annual lighted Christmas boat parade, one of the area’s first, started in 1977.

Kayakers and hikers head to Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve, a newer city park with nature and paddling trails and kayak rentals.

With the boom of the 1990s, Cape Coral gained steam as high-rise developments arose along its marinas. Cape Harbour enhanced the town’s dining scene, known previously for its Italian and Latin restaurants, with waterfront new-American cuisine restaurants Rumrunners and The Joint.

Then in 2009, MarinaVillage added an 18-story upscale resort with a spa, waterfront dining and generous watersports option. What a glory for Cape Coral, which was at about the same time shining up its main thoroughfare, Cape Coral Parkway, in an effort to create a cohesive downtown atmosphere where farmers markets, live music, and art festivals would fill the calendar and streets.

With the economy’s nosedive, the Resort at MarinaVillage stalled in its track. That’s where Westin entered, bringing its “heavenly” industry standard-setters and earning the property a AAA four-diamond rating.

“We did a girls’ weekend at the Westin recently, and it was awesome,” said MaryBeth Greenplate, a Sanibel Island mother. “Its condos are huge and really gorgeous. We hated to leave. I had no idea this existed in Cape Coral.”

Another shot in the arm could only boost Cape Coral’s ascendancy on tourism ladders. It came in the form of a shot of rum and the tale of a mischievous dolphin.

Wicked Dolphin Artisanal Rum opened off the corridor of Pine Island Road, which connects Interstate 75 to the artist-buzz hamlet of Matlacha on Pine Island, a tropical fruit farming setting. New restaurants and shopping clusters have been filling in the space in years past, restaurants like Crazy Olive, which gives a new twist to the Cape’s Italianista reputation.

Also on the restaurant scene, downtown Fort Myers’ Ford’s Garage, purveyor of gourmet burgers and craft beer, is cloned along Cape Coral Parkway; and their new WATERFRONT location will open in 2014 at the Cape Coral Yacht Club, Ford's Boathouse - with huge outdoor deck seating. Peruvian restaurants join traditional Cuban and Mexican eateries to hype the exotic flair.
