About John Stanley

We are John and Sally Stanley,we both grew up in the Adirondaks of upstate New York and we currently reside in Connecticut. We purchased this lovely home in August of 2013 as our future retirement home. We have been vacationing in Florida almost yearly for the past 25 yrs, and recently visited our dear friends who bought a second home here and fell in love with Cape Coral. We are looking forward to the day when we can call this our full time home and spend endless days boating, fishing and beachcombing and spring training games with the Red Sox. We are happy to share our home with you and your family and we are confident that you will enjoy your stay in Cape Coral as much as we do.

John Stanley purchased this house in 2013

Why John Stanley chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

After visiting our friends here in Cape Coral, we realized that we really wanted to own a piece of the South West Florida lifestyle. Boating and fishing were important elements in our choice. We wanted a home that had quick Gulf access so that we can cruise to Sanibel Island regularly and have ample opportunity to fish the days away. On the other hand, it was important to be near shopping and dinning/entertainment, and not stuck out in the boondocks miles from the nearest grocery store, and when planning for our retirement years, it would be wise to be near a hospital. As far as the home itself, this home was a great match for our wish list. A newer home built in 1992, lovingly cared for by its original owner, recently updated with new carpeting, and freshly painted inside and out, a spaceous under truss lanai with inground heated pool, this home had everything we were looking for in an ideal location.

What makes this house unique

Our home is ideally situated, just a short drive from the South West Regional Airport and Ft. Myers beaches. It is located right in the heart of 'shopper's paradise' with every major commercial venu within walking distance, directly off Del Prado Blvd, a major north/south thoroughfare. However, once you turn down our street, it transitions into the calm, peaceful serenity of a waterfront oasis. This location has the best of all worlds, great shopping, beautiful beaches,challenging golf and tennis,minutes to the spring training camp for the Boston Red Sox, and of course,awesome boating and fishing. Or, if you prefer,just stay at home and sunbathe and relax poolside.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was wonderful, largely thanks to this lovely and beautiful home that John and Sally have built. It is in a quiet neighborhood, with dock access to the canal in the back of the home. The house is spacious, well maintained, nice neighborhood, family friendly and perfect for a vacation rental. John provided many of the amenities that are often forgotten when traveling such as laundry detergent, trash bags, etc and there is a WalMart within walking distance and a Target not much further, for those other things that you forget. John also provided the basic fishing equipment for fishing off of the dock in the backyard, we caught several fish and enjoyed our quiet relaxing time out on the dock. I left my extra fishing gear there as well, just to add to the collection. The pool, grill and entire patio area are in great shape and it feels as close to home as you could be. The beds are all comfortable and the provided bedding was very comfortable as well, not scratchy and cheap as a lot of vacation rental properties are. The dishwasher, refrigerator and washer and dryer are all updated and all work well. We had no issues to speak of on the trip. There are TV sets in every bedroom, with Dish Network as the provider. There are also portable stand speakers that you can hook your phone to in order to enjoy your playlist throughout the house or outside in the patio area. John has also included a DVD player in the main living room area, with several movies to choose from if you so choose. The master bathroom has an enormous walk in shower as well as a large garden tub. John provided very clear and concise check in and check out instructions and his only request was that we treat the home as our own. We make it a point to do that as normal practice because we don't want any bad feelings with the property owner once we have left. We were in the Ft. Myers area for a baseball tournament for my son. John had some concerns about the baseball aspect of our visit, due to other baseball families shenanigans and I assured him that we wouldn't follow the same pattern. Baseball families can ruin vacation rentals for a lot of people, we try not to do that at all. I hope we left the house in better condition than we found it. This was our first venture into the Ft. Myers area and we would undoubtedly stay here again if given the chance, the price was very reasonable for a weeklong stay and we had very convenient access to the area beaches

Great location, family friendly, well kept pool with nice canal view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. Our family of 4 stayed very comfortably and there would have been room for more. The pool was very well kept and we enjoyed sitting out on the dock. The location was perfect, with quick bridge access to Ft Myers where I went to work every day. But even if we never left Cape Coral there were plenty of great restaurants and all the conveniences you need. We particularly enjoyed the tiki boathouse grill. Nearby was a little kid friendly beach by the yacht club that we went to several times during our stay. The Stanleys were very gracious and accomodating. We loved our stay and are eager to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you Elsa and Steven, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, the pool is wonderful, and the location is ideal, we would love to have you back again anytime, next year you should take the kids to the Cape Coral water park, it's just a 10 minute drive, and they would have a blast there on the water slides. Fondly, John and Sally Stanley

Gorgeous Home and Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you need for a nice relaxing trip to sunny and fun Cape Coral Florida. This home has all the amenities, and anything you would possibly need. It was so clean, and well taken care of. They even have beach chairs a cooler and an umbrella. This is the second year we have stayed in this home, and I cannot say enough about how wonderful the home and the property is. Sitting on the canal, this home has a wonderful pool and a three bedroom home with plenty of room for your entire family. We really enjoyed the home again, and plan on staying again next year! Thanks so much!!
