Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

The home is simply beautiful and well kept and by far the most equipped home we have stayed in. The owner was more than accommodating and quick to respond to any needs we had. The view is amazing and the outdoor seating area was a favorite of ours. The home was in a great location, convient to all our needs.

Absolutely beautiful vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just had one of the best vacations ever staying in this home! It is simply stunning and has many upgrades and was extra clean!! The kitchen was amazing with an oversized refrigerator/freezer which worked out perfectly for a big family! Big eat in kitchen along with big table inside and outside that accommodates a big family! The four bedrooms each had their own private bathroom and are very roomy! The beds were extra comfy!! The pool area was amazing!! Loved having the big beach end of the pool for the kids along with pool fence that gave us extra peace with the kids! The view is beautiful from the pool area overlooking the lake!! A very big dock with a boat lift for your boat! Shopping for groceries is very close to the home. A very nice Publix is about a mile away. If you read reviews and take them to heart like I do trust me you won't be disappointed with this home!! I would highly recommend it to you and your family!! Thanks again to The Jolly's for sharing your beautiful home!!

Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family enjoyed the home very much. It has everything you need to be comfortable on your vacation. It was a dream to have the pool and spa and the kids really enjoyed swimming. The location cannot be close to restaurants and stores. We can't thank the Jolly family enough for letting us stay in their beautiful home!

Perfect! Just as Described ...

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time spent at Barry's home in Cape Coral! Just completed an extended family annual golf week, and everyone had a super time. All pictures and descriptions are accurate, in fact nicer when you see the house in-person. We found everything clean and in fine working order, in an excellent neighborhood. The 4 bedrooms with en-suite baths and TVs in each are perfect for extended family or non-related guests! LOL - there were rooms in the house we never used, such as a beautiful upstairs balcony looking over the pool and lake between the 2 upstairs bedrooms. We especially enjoyed the nice screened-in pool and hot tub area, also containing a covered patio area with lounge chairs, comfy chairs as well as a table with chairs! Best yet - a TV (all were Direct TV with hundreds of channels and DVR) was mounted in the outside patio, allowing us to congregate outside into the late evenings almost every night. Excellent location near the mid-point bridge if you needed to travel south (airport, Bonita Springs and Naples). A Walmart, Publix Supermarket and ABC Wines and Spirits were all within 1 mile on Del Prado Blvd to add in everything else we needed to make for an excellent week. In fact, for those not familiar with the area, if you weren't into traveling about, almost anything anyone would ever need can be found within a few miles either on or just off Del Prado. Barry's food and entertainment suggestions were right-on. We also found some gems ourselves: House of Omelets for home-cooked breakfast, Ristorante Fabio for authentic NYC Italian, and Chops City Grill for upscale steak in Bonita Springs (yes a drive but worth it). We did drive 30-45 minutes each way to find golf courses that met our needs, but on our golf vacation we don't mind doing that, and there are local golf courses within a 25 minute drive if that fits your needs. Finally Barry was a wonderful owner, helpfully replied to the few queries we had within minutes, and for the rest of the time left us alone. All transactions with him and through Home Away went well (and as first time renters we had some worries but we shouldn't have). The next time we visit Southwest Florida we would definitely consider staying at Barry's Home again, and this time might even consider renting a boat to take advantage of the beautiful lake/Gulf waterway the house is located on. Why stay in a Residence Inn when for the same multi-family price you can rent a perfect home like this!

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.
