About The Owner

We have a very close knit family and spend alot of time together; from our Family Friday dinners to our summer picnics. We wanted a place the whole family could run away to escape the ever dreary PA winters. We needed more sunshine, warm temperature and blue skies in our life! Always wanted a house with a pool!

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Cape Coral

Our family has been working with the US Fish & Wildlife and Hawk Mountain Bird Sanctuary for many years. We have traveled to Cape Coral migrating with the American kestrals banding & documenting their winter habitat. Nature lovers at heart, we felt it was time the whole family could have a place to visit, relax and call home.

What makes this house unique

Minutes to everything your heart desires! Or just curl up with a good book by your private pool, fish from your dock with a cold beverage in your hand and just enjoy the view!

Home away from home <3

  • 5 of 5

This clean and cozy vacation rental was exactly what we needed! We are a family of 4 with a 12 yr old and a 9 yr old. The kids swam every day and fished in the canal. There was a grill for good eating every night and plenty of housewares and supplies for anything we could have needed. The decor was light and refreshing with a comfortable home away from home feel. The rooms are a good size and could easily sleep a party of 10 if needed. The layout is spacious and open with no immediate neighbors. We would definitely book this great house again!

home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We came down to look for a 4 bedroom 3. Bath home, little did we know we put a bid on a similar home by the same builder, it was a perfect location for staying in, close to everything Cape Coral has to offer but being far enough away for privacy, if you get a chance look off to the home on the south East side of the intersecting canels and you will see a nest of a mating pair of Osprey (sea Hawk) and if you spend any time on the lanie you will see them scoop over the water for dinner, if you like serenity and nature this is a great place to stay, clean, light bright and airy, we would rent again from Cheryl and Jim!!

Fantastic Cape Coral Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful spacious home was perfect for our family vacation. As soon as we pulled up to the drive way we new this was going to be a GREAT!!! home. As I opened the front door and stepped in all I could say is, WOW!!!! This home is better then the pictures show it to be. It was well kept, clean, and the best part, the house came fully stocked with dishes, cookware, towels, etc. All we had to do was relax by the beautiful pool. The furniture and beds were very comfortable as well. My family and I had the greatest vacation of our lives due to our stay at this Fantastic home. (THANK YOU JIM & CHERYL). My family and I will continue to rent this fabulous home for every trip that we make to Florida.

Superb Cape Coral Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was even better than pictured. From the moment we opened the front door we knew we picked a winner. The condition of this home was pristine, immaculately clean and fresh. The house is superbly laid out and so roomy. To top it off the house is furnished beautifully, the quality beds and furniture very comfortable. The bed linens and towels were exactly the same as well as plentiful. The exterior of the property is equally lovely. The lanai and pool were well enjoyed by all of us. The owners were quick to answer questions and could not have been more proactive or helpful. If we visit Cape Coral again this is the house we will return to without question. The location is wonderful, close to Matlacha and Pine Island and to downtown Cape Coral as well. We thoroughly enjoyed delicious dinners out at Red's, Ford's Garage and Mulletville. Make time for the Margaretaville style waterfront eateries in St. James City, food and live music were just great. We went to Captiva Island and picked up amazing shells we've never seen on beaches before. The only drawback was that we only booked this great home for a week! Thanks so much Jim and Cheryl, can't think of a single thing you need to add or change as you've clearly thought of everything to make your guests feel welcomed and at home! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home.

Well equiped house

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in upwards of twenty rentals in the US this has to be the best equiped.Everything from a tool kit to an inflateable ring for the beach.This made a real difference for us, Publix two miles away and the house was very comfortable with a lovely patio/pool area.Would recommend the house and owners who were great to deal with.
