About Grace

After a career of public service Directing State & Federal Educational Programs, 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, tropical foliage, tidal changes, observing the manatees and dolphins that frolic in our canals. Many guests enjoy catch and release fish including, snapper, tarpon, jack, mullet, sheephead, snook mangrove snapper, and catfish right off the two docks. 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 Burnt Store

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 lots of 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. It is a vacation home that folks love to come back to, season after season.

What makes this house unique

True Coral Sunsets from the lanai! Perfect for bird watchers! I re-designed the Great Room with water views from every area. Well appointed, it offers plenty of space for your living, dining, reading, conversing, TV, and game table activities. Pocket doors enable even more privacy between the great room, 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; Easy access to major highways; minutes to local shopping, the art galleries, and restaurants of Matlacha.

The Host/Manager's efficiency studio is attached to the house with a separate, private entrance. While off the property, most days, the Host is available for maintenance tasks 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. 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 18 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 and enjoy Joe Stonis park outdoor fitness

This property was so much more than we expected. The location was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Grace shared her beautiful home with us. For us, the location was perfect. A quiet neighborhood but within minutes of some wonderful, scenic places. The necessities were nearby also. Her pool and spa were inviting but the weather was not in our favor. Grace was so helpful with ideas for fun outings and great places to eat. Definitely planning on returning when we are able.

Wunderbares gepflegtes Haus und erholsamer Urlaub.

In diesem gepflegten und sehr sauberen Haus haben wir unseren vierwöchigen Urlaub im November verbracht. Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet und gut ausgestattet. Grace hat uns sehr viele Tipps für Veranstaltungen gegeben und ist uns mit Rat und Tat beiseite gestanden. Sie ist eine sehr hilfsbereite und warmherzige Dame und wir können nur empfehlen den Urlaub an diesem schönen Platz zu verbringen.

Relaxing in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Grace for some exeptional day's at your home. We really loved your house, garden and pool. We made a Florida tour for 3 weeks and the Cape Coral area is the best there is. Nice beaches and the cities were great. We hope to get back in the near future (winter time?).

Owner's Response: Dear Patrick, It was my pleasure to host you and your lovely family for the first leg of your Florida Vacation. Should you return during the winter, you will find dryer weather, and more birds and sea animals to enjoy. Keep me posted about your travel plans, as you and your family are always welcome at The Coral Perch. Best Regards, Grace

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Coral Perch. She used the pool and I fished in the canal almost daily. We both were amazed at the investment Grace has made in the landscaping around this home. The interior decorating is just as beautiful, while also being laid out nicely and quite functional.

The home's location is a real strong point. Coral Perch is in a quiet residential neighborhood but very near the main north-south and east-west arteries for Cape Coral/Ft. Myers. There's a Publix grocery 10 minutes away, which is handy. Day trips to Naples and Tampa are an option but there's really no need for that with Sanibel, Matlacha and many other attractions so near.

We enjoyed getting to know Grace and greatly appreciated her recommendations regarding attractions and restaurants. Nearly any family should enjoy Coral Perch as much as we did.
