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. My 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 guest 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 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 guest 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, 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; 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 villers, rea is just right for short term vacationers, retirees, honeymoon 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 outdoor fitness

Beautiful home, nice views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and first visit to this part of Florida. We got to see a manatee in the canal shortly after arriving. The home has everything you need for a great stay. We didn't get to use the pool and hot tub as much as we hoped, maybe next visit. Thanks Grace

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a vacation home and it couldn't have been a more wonderful experience. Grace's home was furnished beautifully and had all the amenities you could want or need to make you feel right at home. Having the pool and hot tub was wonderful for kicking back and relaxing while looking at the great view. Great beaches like Sanibel and Captiva are only a small drive away. Grace was so helpful in offering tips on things to do in the area and lending a hand when we had any questions. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay and would highly recommend the Coral Perch to those traveling to Cape Coral, do not hesitate. Thank you so much!

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!
