About Crystal Bakker

After raising our children in Minnesota we decided to pick up and leave the cold behind. In 2005 we relocated to Cape Coral, FL. We fell in love with the area and after a few years decided to buy another home on our street to use for visiting guests and a vacation rental. After that went so well we continued purchasing homes to use for vacationers and now own two homes and a condo at Cape Harbour Marina all available for rentals. We are often home just down the street and available to help with any emergencies that might arise. If we are unavailable we have a great handyman and cleaning service to help out in a pinch!

Crystal Bakker purchased this house in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I enjoyed three sun-filled weeks in this beautiful and spotless Cape Coral home - the pictures really do not do it justice as it is far lovelier upon entrance. Off the foyer the living room and family room, each with couch and love seats, are well furnished and comfortable with cable in the family room on a large flat screen television. The dining room which opens to the Lanai seats six comfortably and there is a high top table for four between the kitchen and the family room. The quality of all of the furnishings was sturdy and well made (Cindy Crawford Home and Panama Jack) - furnished as a real home rather than a rental afterthought. The kitchen was very spacious with expansive countertops and enough room for multiple cooks and featured a very large walk-in pantry. All of the appliances were high end and worked perfectly (actually it was the quietest dishwasher I've ever used)! The ice and cold water from the freezer door were filtered and clean tasting.The cooking equipment was also of very good quality and we enjoyed preparing some home-cooked meals. The two guest bedrooms were equally well appointed with queen beds, nice linens and walk in closets. The guest bath also opened to the lanai making it a very handy pool bath. The master bedroom had an extremely comfortable king bed (loved the mattress!!) another flat screen tv and a large master bath with double sinks, loads of drawers and counter space, tub and large separate shower. There was also a nice size walk-in closet. The garage (with auto garage door opener) was a great convenience on move in day and came with (surprise!) two shiny new bicycles!!! There was a large laundry room with very modern washer/dryer, iron and ironing board and cleaning supplies. NOTE: We have rented many times from HomeAway and it is rare and very much appreciated to find any cleaning supplies included - Cape Dorado came equipped with laundry detergent, dish detergent, dish washer liquid and tabs, soft soap at every sink, multiple rolls of paper towels and bath tissue and supplies to keep everything clean! Thank you!! Sooo smart!! Now for the best part - the screen enclosed Lanai with both hot tub (loved it!) and large pool kept at a very comfortable 80 degrees - which we swam in everyday! Behind the Lanai on the canal was a boat dock where dolphin appeared most every morning and evening catching their own meals - they swam right up to us - thrilling and memorable!!

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful, clean and fully stocked. The pool was perfect and cozy. The view was amazing from the backyard and the house was close to everything. It was everything we hoped for; even the dogs loved the house! The house was true to the pictures and descriptions. I can't wait to go back and spend another vacation!

Relaxing and spacious get away

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cape Coral. The home provided plenty of space for our family to spread out and yet still be together on vacation. The property was very clean and nicely decorated. We really enjoyed being able to cool off in the pool as well as exploring the area on the bicycles provided. Our daughters loved walking to the shops nearby especially the coffee/ice cream shop. Crystal was very responsive and easy to work with throughout our experience. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cape Dorado.
