We have been renting houses in SW Florida for 11 years. We have been on the east coast side, Daytona etc but prefer the Gulf side. Tom and Jessica's house was our 4th house in Cape Coral. It more than met our needs and we found it to be very comfortable and well appointed. The pool is a good size and the deck is great for the sun bathers. Everyone will be able to sleep, 2 Queen beds, double lower bunk and single on top plus a Queen size pull out in the family room.
The house is centrally located in Cape Coral. Can drive to Sanibel Island/Captiva or boat there. The boat is 19ft Carolina skiff with a 90hp engine with a centre console.. My husband and I are boaters and have taken navigation/boating courses which is a requirement here in Ontario, Canada to operate pleasure craft. Not so in Florida. It is helpful to know and recognize the red and green markers, idle speed which is necessary in the canals. It also helps if you are comfortable operating a boat. Directions through the canals are provided by Tom and he has charts. We bought our own so that we could go to Sanibel and some water restaurants. It takes 30 min at idle speed to get to the river. Never docked at Sanibel but it was nice trip and got us out of the river and into the gulf. The lift is easily handled with good instructions from Tom. There is room for 5 people. Extra life jackets in garage.
If you don't feel comfortable renting the boat, there is still lots to do. Good shopping at Tangers outlet mall, in Ft Myers. Beaches at Sanibel, Ft Myers. We played golf at Royal Tee at Veterans and Pine Island Rd. Naples is 50 min S. I can't see you getting bored in a week. We were there for 31days. Enjoyed the books that were written by locals that Jessica provided. It is great for walking in the neighborhood.....saw many Burrowing Owls and their burrows...all protected and well marked locations near the house. I took my grand daughter age 10 to SunSplash Park...only open on weekends...we had a great time. It is a unique city!
Cape Coral is surrounded by water and its natural beauty is the perfect setting for fishing and boating enthusiasts. There are more than 400 miles of saltwater and freshwater canals that tie the many lakes to the fantastic inter-coastal area and then lead out to the Gulf of Mexico. Cape Coral is known also as a boaters paradise.
Situated north of Fort Myers Beach, the area is the ideal location for good family fun, there is a twelve acre water park and childrens science centre. Cape Coral also offers some of the best golf in the area. From top rated championship courses to the more relaxed "executive" courses, there is a course to challenge every skill level. Cape Coral is considered the second safest city in the whole of Florida. Nearby are the stunning locations of Sanibel Island and Captiva Island.
