My wife & I stayed for 8 days at the end of January. The house is in a convenient location in Cape Coral. Several restaurants are within walking distance. Publix and a Walmart superstore are a short drive away. Cape Coral is a good location to visit Sanibel Island, Fort Meyers Beach and Fort Meyers. There are also several public parks for hiking right in Cape Coral.
The house was nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable. The home was nicely laid out with a large family room near the back of the house, adjacent to a screened pool area. It was enjoyable to sit out by the pool even though we didn't go in. Large screen tv's were located in the living room, family room and master bedroom. Furniture and appliances were all in good shape. You definitely would enjoy staying here.
This property worked well for me and my two teenagers. The pool, though unheated, was warm enough for us to use in the evenings, especially if we uncovered it during the day. All the amenities described were present (except the garage door opener which arrived about 2/3 of the way through our 1 week stay). There was a blender in the kitchen as well. The promised book with local information was not there, but the internet connection covered that. The neighborhood felt safe enough for night walks.
For those on a budget, be aware that besides the noted charge for having more then 2 people staying at this (3 bedroom) house, there was also an additional "Christmas charge" added to my bill which I was told was added for all holidays. If you are a beach lover, know that each time one returns from Fort Myers to Cape Coral there is a $2 toll on the bridge; there is no charge in the other direction. Gas is the least expensive right by the house or north. There is a SuperTarget about 3-4 miles from the house.
