About Ryan Steele

Our family currently lives in Omaha, NE. My wife and I were married in 1999 and have known each other since childhood. We have 4 kids that make our family complete.

Ryan Steele purchased this house in 2014

Why Ryan Steele chose Cape Coral

We have traveled to several tropical destinations on vacations over the last several years. We have found that Cape Coral is truly our home away from home. With so many fun and relaxing things to do we always look forward to many lasting memories.

A perfect family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this home. It had everything we needed to pretend we were a Florida family for the week! Ample room for our extended family of 11. 6 adults and 5 children. The pool was clear and clean and the backdrop of the canal and dock was gorgeous. The house was a winner for our trip.

Beautiful home to rest and enjoy the Florida sunshine

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit in your lovely home celebrating our 38 year wedding anniversary. We love the close proximity to stores, restaurants and to the beach! We especially enjoyed our bike rides in the evenings. This was our 3rd time using your home for our Florida getaway! We will be back!

Beautiful and Spacious!

We had an awesome vacation in this beautiful house! Owner and management company provided great service. Conveniently located for beaches and fishing. Located in a quiet neighborhood and quiet canal. Can't wait to stay here again next year!

Excellent Home away from home and convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days in November. We had several family members come and stay with us plus our 3 sons and their families which includes our 5 grandchildren (4 years old and under). We were very comfortable because of the way the house is set up. And very comfortable furniture throughout the house and out on the pool deck. The weather was perfect so we were able to enjoy the pool and spa daily! One of my sons fished in the canal off the very large dock and caught catfish.

The location of Steele's home is perfect! Very close to Publix and a couple local favorites, Lady Lobster and Papa Joes Italian. I was able to text Ryan a few times and he always got right back with me! Also, this home is very accessible. My husband has ALS and the walk in shower and the slider patio doors from the master suite right out to the pool were awesome! I hope we get the chance to return to our "Ocean Home", which is what our grandchildren are calling it!

The pictures did not do the house justice!! It was beautiful. The pool area was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this house. We were 6 total people. 2 adults and 4 kids. Everyone had a great room and it was great having the pool and an amazing view of the canal behind us. The kitchen was a big hit too. We were able to stock the fridge and cook when we needed to. It was close to everywhere we wanted to go. We spent a lot of time in the pool but had plenty of time to go to the beach. We went to Sanibel island and Ft Myers beach which were nearby. We would definitely recommend staying here. Ryan and the property manager were readily available to answer questions and made the stay even more amazing. We hope to be able to stay there again in the future.

Cape Coral Yacht Club public beach
Car: recommended

Sanibel and Captiva Island are a 35 minute drive from our home. Fort Myers Beach is a 25 minute drive, and the public beaches at the Yacht club in Cape Coral are 10 minutes from our house. If you enjoy the beach and Ocean these are a must while vacationing in Cape Coral. The sea shells are endless at Sanibel and Captiva. You can also go to one of the nearby Marinas and rent a boat, pontoon, or Charter a boat for the day. You will likely see Dolphins, Turtles, Manatees, and much more while on the water. Tampa is a two hour drive north of Cape Coral which has theme parks and many other attractions, Marco Island is one hour south and is worth visiting for a day at the beach. If you are looking for a one day trip hop on the Key West Express which departs out of Fort Myers beach and goes to Key West for the day. If you like to golf or fish you have endless choices.
