About Crystal Bakker

We wanted to find an area that was on water with easy access to many activities. Golf, kayaking and fishing are some of our favorite activities.

Crystal Bakker purchased this house in 2011

Why Crystal Bakker chose Cape Coral

We love the water!! With 400 miles of canals in Cape Coral and direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. . . we couldn't resist this area!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really liked this house. We spent a lot of time by the pool, and the house had plenty of space. The proximity to area attractions is a major plus. Within 30 - 40 minutes, you can be at Sanibel and Pine Island, Ft. Myers Beach, The Henry Ford & Thomas Edison houses, Imaginarium for kids,etc. The Cape Harbor Marina, Rumrunners, and some neat shops are across the street, which is a nice convenience. I would rate this house a 5 star because of the amenities it has and proximity to attractions.

Rented this house for my Husband birthday. My friends and I have vacationed in Resorts and Hotels, this is the first time that we used vacation Homes, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. First impression when you enter the home is, clean, clean , NOT is a new home but is in perfect . This home has it all! The home is very well stocked with all of the things you need for a great vacation. The beds are very comfortable. The area is quite and makes for a very relaxing time in the backyard by the pool and overlooking the water canal. We took advantage of the grill several times.The kids had a great time with Bicycles and Kayaks. This home is very close to mini shopping , only cross the street had a beautiful place with ice cream, coffee , Bar, Marine and the grocery store and pharmacy within minutes of driving. The Crystal are very responsive to any needs you may have I called in this recent trip and She send a person fast for to resolve the problem..Perfect!!. This House really make you feel like it is your home away from home, thanks!! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone that wants a carefree vacation in the beautiful CAPE CORAL area.

Excellent House makes for an Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

House was as described, spacious, easy to locate, clean, ready for our arrival and within a short distance to shops and supermarket. Cape Harbour Marina right across the street with nice shops, boat rentals and music at night! During our stay, we visited Venice Beach, Sanibel and Captiva Islands - All located within a short drive.

Great value, highly recommended, Crystal responded to emails promptly and we would definitely rent this house from Crystal again.

Perfect for family!

  • 4 of 5

Great location! The house is right across the street from the marina and very close to stores! We all loved the screened in pool area! The "fenced in yard" is a little dog walking area on the side of the house and you have to go out and around to get to it which was not easily accessible. We had a few issues and never heard anything back from Crystal. Overall it is good!

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear you enjoyed staying in our home. I am very sorry if you feel like any issues were not taken care of promptly. I checked our email strands and my text messages and don't see any reference of any problems during your stay so I guess I am unclear as to what needed to be tended to. I do apologize if I didn't receive a message sent. We truly want all of our guests 100% happy with their stay and would appreciate a follow up phone call if something wasn't responded to. We do encourage all of our guests to text, email or call if there is anything at the home that might need attention right away so we can take care of any issues that may arise.

Loved the house, it was a very nice place!

  • 5 of 5

The property was fantastic! It was spacious and large enough for our large party to be comfortable. We all had a good time in the pool, and the kayaks were a group favorite! So glad they were part of the rental 😀 The house was stocked with all the necessities we could possibly need. The only downfall was the lack of good beaches in the area. We ended up driving to the Venice beach area for nice beaches but it was worth the drive! Overall we had a great visit and couldn't have been happier with the house and accommodations 😀

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the home! About 5 miles away is Cape Coral Public Beach. It is small with one beach bar/restaurant but nice to check out. About 15 miles away is Fort Myers Public Beach which is much larger with a lot of fun activities (parasailing, jet ski rental etc, boardwalk with shops/restaurants and a pier). We enjoy going to this larger beach frequently. To see some really stunning beaches we recommend driving the 20 miles to Sanibel Island or just a tad further to Captiva Island. Very cute little towns with restaurants, shelling and beautiful beaches. We hope to have you return in the future!

Making memories

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Plenty of room and love the layout of the house and well stocked. The lanai and pool is where we spent most of our time and thoroughly

enjoyed. Great for a family get together. The only thing I recommend is a larger grill , with a family and good eaters grill was not big enough

for our needs. Great value for this rental home in a beautiful location. Highly recommend.

Perfect wedding weekend location! !!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home to host family from 3 states who were attending our memorial day weekend wedding Mass.

The house was in perfect condition. Plenty of kitchen ware supplies, some pool toys and towels. While we didn't find time to bike or kayak, it would havd been fun! Guests enjoyed being on the canal.

We ended up have a catered lunch for 20. With the covered patios and outdoor furniture and the open floorplan, it was beyond our expectations. Fathoms Restaurant set everything up while we were at church!

The location is perfect if you enjoy browsing thru the shops, the night time music and restaurants at Cape Harbour Marina. No need to drive - just walk across the street! They also have boat rentals, tour boats and guides to help you enjoy the water even more.

We are happy to encourage anyone shopping to choose this home. Split floorplan with 2 bedrooms and a bath on each side was great! The only down side, the sliding door on guest bath. That's just my own pet peave... enjoy your holiday in beautiful Cape Coral and especially this lovely home!!!!!!
