Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5
I really cannot say enough good things in the space allotted.

Our family consists of my husband and I, our 9 year old daughter and 21 year old son. The house is large - we did not even use the formal living or dining room. The photos are very accurate. The house was clean and the description was spot on.

Some things that we never thought would be important, but were:

1) The kitchen window is a sliding window. You can cook then transfer your food out of this window onto the bar outside.
2) The kitchen is TRULY stocked. There were PLENTY of plates, glasses and cookware. There were even grilling tools for the gas grill.
3) There is a TV (with cable) outside by the pool. The kids loved watching TV from the pool, but also it was entertainment for my husband and I when our 9 year old wanted to swim and no other adults did. The furniture was comfy and there were enough chairs and stools to accommodate numerous people.
4) The closets were large. They also had plenty of hangers for our week.
5) There were PLENTY of linens - including beach towels.
6) There were beach umbrellas and chairs, fishing poles and 3 bikes stored in the garage. We did not make use of everything, but how nice to know they were available!
7) This pool (unlike our previous rental homes) remained clean and pool service was mid week! Perfect in case it stormed. You will never lose the whole week's pool time!
8) Being on the canal was much more beautiful than we imagined. At night, you can hear the fish jump out of the water. Wear mosquito repellant! There is a table and 4 chairs on the patio by the dock.
9) The neighborhood is quiet, but friendly. The neighbors at the end of the road insisted my husband try their hammock! Very sweet people!

The town of Cape Coral was not very large and easy to navigate. Del Prado Blvd, minutes away, had many food choices and grocery stores. One warning, Cape Coral grocery shopping was higher than what we expected. After some research, it appears Cape Coral's cost of living is higher than the Florida average. Be prepared to pay a little more.

It is an easy, pleasant drive to Ft. Meyers and Sanibel Island. It took us about 30 mins to get to either.

Two restaurant suggestions - Stay away from Asia Buffet on Del Prado, but absolutely go to Azucar Restaurant & Bakery on the same road. GREAT food and Cuban coffee!

Don't hesitate to make this your home for the week/month. It is worth it! Thank you Bob and Elayne!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at our home. We do have a lot of extras at our home, because it is our home. We have it supplied for ourselves, our family, friends and visits from our grandchildren and we are happy to share all those little extras with our guests. As for the grocery prices I have to agree that Publix Supermarket (we like the newer one on Veterans Pkwy) is a little more expensive but the quality is high and their take-out is great. Cape Coral also has several Walmart Stores and we have found them to be about the same price as Ft. Myers and much lower priced than any of the supermarkets on Sanibel Island. We have been coming to Lee County since we were children and we looked a long time before we picked this house. To us it seems like it is in a lovely neighborhood and the perfect location. Our home is close to both Cape Coral beaches, restaurants, Cape Coral’s great parks, where there is always something going on and just 20 to 30 minutes to world famous Sanibel Island, Ft. Myers Beach and about the same driving time to Ft. Myers International Airport. Thanks for the tip on Azucar Restaurant & Bakery; we will give it a try on our next visit to FL. We just love Cape Coral and we are so glad you liked it too. Hope you will come again.
