We feel blessed to have what we feel is a rare opportunity to own such a unique and beautiful waterfront home and hope our guests enjoy the private, peaceful setting it offers.

Gourmet styled kitchen with open kitchen counter/bar is perfect for entertaining. The beautiful setting has a wrap-around-porch and the special character of this home is drawn from its spectacular natural panoramic views. Natural setting and a nice get-away for the more private guest.
We just returned to NH after spending a month in Mary Jane's wonderful home. Renting sight unseen can make you a little nervous but have no fear!! This house was so much more than we hoped for---spacious, beautifully furnished, and so well stocked, we lacked nothing. The property was very private with a large lawn that our little dog loved to explore. We spent most evenings (and some early mornings) out back on the wrap around porch, watching the beautiful sunsets, very peaceful. About every other day, the resident alligator would float by and the ducks would hop onto the dock, just in case...we even saw a few otters playing in the grass and , of course, all sorts of birds. Mary Jane kept in touch to make sure everything was OK and made sure we knew that she was just a phone call away if we needed anything---she was a delight! Don't hesitate to book this property on your next visit to FL---you won't be disappointed!!
This gorgeous home was perfect for our needs, and much more. MaryJane & Rick were gracious owners of this peaceful paradise. MaryJane was very responsive thoughtout the rental process and was helpful in every way. Their rental home was tastefully decorated, clean, comfortable and equipped with many additional amenities that you would expect from a seasonal rental. TEN stars for the home & owners, MaryJane & Rick. We were close to shopping areas and plenty of restaurants. The wild life was wonderful . Almost every day we were experiencing something different from many kinds of birds, ducks, & otters. They were always putting on a show for us. We will definitely stay here again in the future. It truly felt like you were at home. Thank you very much from Susan & Jerry
Staying at Rick and MaryJane's well-appointed Key West style home returns you to the feel of Old Florida living. The home has a very tranquil setting with lots of green space for our Labradoodle and is surrounded by a natural creek off the Caloosahatchee River. From the wrap-around porch not a day goes by without a citing of wildlife: river otters, anhingas, hawks, eagles, turtles, manatees, egrets, herons and all sorts of jumping fish. There's a kayak and gas grill provided for your use. If fishing or photography is your "thng" you will love this property. Rick and Mary Jane are such delightful and gracious owners who take care of you like family. They even called in a plumber on a Sunday to replace a faulty faucet! The photos on the website are accurate representations of how the house really looks! We stayed for 3 months and certainly plan to rent here again.
My husband and I, along with my sister and her husband, spent the month of March in this absolutely spectacular home. Every consideration has been paid to the detail of this home. The decorating is beautiful and every possible amenity was provided. It is a very spacious house and provided ample privacy for each couple with the bedrooms being on opposite sides, as well as numerous areas to get away, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We all took full advantage of the comfortable furniture on the wrap-around deck. The owners were very attentive to our needs. The pictures and description on the website are right on!
WE HAD THE PLEASURE OF STAYING HERE FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY. THE PROPERTY IS BEAUTIFUL AND SPACIOUS. THE HOME IS NICELY DECORATED AND VERY COMFORTABLE. THERE ARE WINDOWS EVERYWHERE, AND A HUGE WRAP AROUND BALCONY FOR VIEWING THE WATER. A DOUBLE KAYAK WAS PROVIDED AND WAS GREAT FUN FOR EXPLORING THE WATERWAYS AND RIVER. LOCATION WAS CLOSE TO MARCO AND SANIBEL ISLANDS AND OF COURSE FT. MYERS BEACH.
THE OWNERS WERE VERY FRIENDLY AND WELCOMING SO EASY TO DEAL WITH PROVIDING LOTS OF INFO ON THE AREA.
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS LOVELY PROPERTY.
PERFECT!! This is our one word for our rental experience at this property. Our golden retriever loved the big yard and we loved the quiet locations with the water around us. We were close enough to visit the beaches and all the tourist attractions. (Love the Edison and Ford summer homes). You are within thirty to forty minutes of any activities you might want to do or see. Mary Jane and Rick went above and beyond to make our stay one we will cherish always.
