About Grace

After a career of public service in School District Directorships, I decided to purchase and take time to renovate this charming vacation guest residence, because of its natural setting and calming intersecting waterway views. I love the wide variety of birds and my guests always catch and release fish including, snapper, tarpon, jack, mullet, sheephead, snook and catfish right off the two docks,, while observing the manatee and occasional dolphins criss-crossing the canals. I can relax here and flying into RSW makes it easier for family, friends and guests to visit. I've always enjoyed a non- condo complex, guest residence, when vacationing, and wanted to offer a similar experience to my guests.

Note: I am the onsite property manager. My quarters are attached to the house with a private entrance. I am available to you, to provide concierge services, as needed.

Grace purchased this house in 2011

Why Grace chose Cape Coral

My Real Estate Broker shared that, 'Cape Coral, is where the REAL people live'. This home met my expectations of natural tropical setting, wide water views, yet close to everything. I have my choices to shop and enjoy all the activities and events SWF has to offer between Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda to the north and Ft. Myers, Sanibel and Naples to the south. When I walked in, I was immersed in the tropical scene of pool, lots of intersecting water views, swaying palms, exotic flora and fauna (in one afternoon, I spied snook, jackfish, sheephead and leaping mullet swimming around the dock and discovered the family of blue crab darting in and out of the oyster beds) and knew that I could create the type of retreat where guests are always welcome and can enjoy all the amenities of this special locale. I enjoy a project. so designed the renovation with guests needs, in mind. Catching up on relaxation (?) then the pocket doors between the bedrooms and the great room offer additional quiet and privacy. It is a vacation home that folks love to come back to, season after season.

What makes this house unique

I re-designed the interior space to become a great room with water views from every area.. Beautifully appointed, it offers plenty of space for your living, dining, reading, conversing and game table activities. Pocket doors enable even more privacy between the great room, laundry area and 2 guest bedrooms; 2 baths and interior washer/dryer. Sliders from the bedrooms to the pool patio offer additional views of the tropical flora and intersecting canals.

The Host/Manager's efficiency studio is attached to the house with a separate, private entrance. The Host is available for maintenance and to assist you with area informational needs.

An uncrowded locale with the best fishing on this side of the globe! On-site Host/Mgr. responds to your needs, troubleshoots quickly, maintains pool, lawn, grounds, water system, trash removal services to keep your vacation stress free. While the location abounds in 4 wide water intersecting views, natural beauty and privacy, ( who really wants to be packed into a condo development(?),and it's so handy to the airport, shopping, dining, golfing, boating, beaches and a broad variety of leisure time/vacation activities. You can catch the water taxi from Pineland Marina to Captiva, Cabbage Key and Cayo Costa, just a few minutes away in Pine Island. Cape Coral Yacht Club Beach is 15 minutes away, is well maintained with a terrific open air Boat House Tiki Hut restaurant. The city of Cape Coral hosts family friendly events, year round! This guest villa is just right for short term vacationers,retirees, honeymooners, returning vacationers who want a home base while looking for property to purchase, executives seeking R&R, birders, authors, artists, marine life enthusiasts and you can even jump start your fitness program via video or join one of the several classes offered locally.

The perfection of the Coral Perch

  • 5 of 5

Few things in life are perfect, but the Coral Perch comes as close to perfection as can be achieved by human effort. In this case, the owner, Grace, has done a masterful job in creating this unique, standout home. I could write a short story on what it must have taken to create this amazing, well-designed and artful space. Grace went beyond what most people would have done with her expansive vision and attention to the smallest detail. The richness of the interior furnishings and choices of interesting materials are a visual feast, and the more you look the more you see and it's all wonderful. My wife and I had a great week here just lazing around and easing into the sub-tropical lifestyle. Grace was friendly and a very good communicator who clearly exerts alot of effort in whatever she does. The Coral Perch is highly recommended without reservation. Look no further for your next vacation rental!

We were very satisfied with our stay with Grace at Coral Perch.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of a house rental for a month in Florida. Really enjoyed more of a "home" experience and staying in one place for awhile, was so relaxing. Brought our golf clubs, visited some family and friends, and sites, and we were good to go from our home base. We loved just hanging out at the pool, by ourselves or with friends who were also exploring the area. Thank you to Grace for being so accommodating and helpful with local things to do and see. We found our home away from home to exceed our expectations...cleanliness, the way the house was stocked with everything we could ask for, location, pool, waterways....saw a ton of Manatees close by and some in our own channel way. That was exciting to us! Several Islands such as Sanabel, Captiva, Fort Meyers Beach, and others were only all within an hours drive. But Cape Coral was peaceful. Which we loved. Was nice to have Grace close by for a few questions we had, but we never felt watched over. It was a joy to meet a new friend. We hope our paths cross again. We would definitely recommend Coral Perch to others. Thank you, Grace.

A delightful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the US many times and this is the first time we have stayed in one place for more than a few days and we were not disappointed.

Having arrived in the dark after driving from Tampa we were met by Grace who made us feel at home immediately. It was a lovely surprise when we woke next morning to see our surroundings. This was the start of two delightful weeks.

We divided our time between staying at home and enjoying our house and sightseeing.

We can recommend Banana Bay tours. We went on two of their boat trips. Both were very enjoyable and informative. We saw dolphins, manatees and many birds. Captain JR did a great job and is very knowledgable.

Grace is the perfect hostess, there when needed but not intrusive.

We do not hesitate to give this rental five stars.

Owner's Response: Dear L&W, ...So happy that you appreciated the lovely Coral Perch Guest Residence. It is a great spot to come home to after a day of touring and exploring. Pods of manatees are enjoying our intersecting canal, now, and the bird life is a pleasure to observe. You are welcome to return and until then, keep me posted with photos of your nature adventures. All the best, Grace

A perfect spot !

  • 5 of 5

Grace's home is wonderful; furnished to a very high standard it provides every amenity one could wish for and more from a holiday rental. The location is quiet and perfect as a base from which to explore or to enjoy a lazy day in or by the pool or sitting on the dock - we were lucky enough to see manatee in the canal. With Grace close at hand but discrete in her presence The Coral Perch is the ideal choice for a perfect holiday deserving of a 5 star + rating.

Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home had a perfect location for us, as my husband LOVES to fish. Not only could we fish off the dock at the house, it was close to the Burnt Store ramp and Matlacha. Unfortunately, the "no-see-ums" saw us. I was afraid that since Grace would be staying on property, it would feel like we were being watched 24/7. That was not the case, actually only knew she was around when her car was in the drive. The only draw back we had, was that the large knives were not sharp and it was difficult to cut the wonderful pineapple she gave us as a welcome gift. Thanks for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: Dear Karla and Randall, I'm so glad that you had a restful stay at the lovely Coral Perch Vacation Guest Residence. The pool lanai screen helps with most flying insects, but as you know, the sub-tropical climate does present with no-seeums. While fishing, many people protect themselves by wearing white, long sleeved clothing and pants. Glad you caught some fish though:-) The electric knife sharpener is in the pantry cabinet, for guest use. My guests' privacy is always a priority. All the best to you and safe travels, Grace
