|Minimum Stay||14 nights|
Come relax in the private pool (heated) or head out to the Gulf of Mexico from your backyard boat lift. Our home is ideally located just 10 minutes by boat to the Caloosahatchee River and 20 minutes by car to Sanibel Island or Ft. Myers Beach.
Our home, on SE 15th Avenue in Cape Coral, is in the heart of all there is to do in Cape Coral. The boat dock is located on a quiet canal just 10 minutes from the Calloosahatchee River. The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a 2 car garage. The split floor plan offers the best of FL living with two 8 foot sliding glass walls opening out to oversized Lanai. Completely remodeled in January 2009 with designer furnishings this home is truly spectacular. Layed out for families the home includes 2 living rooms and a spacious dining room. The kids will love the large twin over full bunk beds off the family room with 52" HD TV. The Master Suite with vaulted ceilings and Tropical wood furnishings is a sanctuary after long days at the beach. The oversized Master Bath features a large walk in closet, queen size bed, dual vanities and floor to ceiling tile. The second bedroom features a walk in closet, queen sized cottage style bed with both pool and canal views. The fully stocked kitchen includes new Whirlpool appliances and a breakfast bar for the family on the go.
The entire home has been remodeled in January 2009.
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!
This house worked great for our stay and had all amenities needed for a couple of weeks. The boat made access to the in-shore waters around Sanibel a breeze. Three bedroom and two bathrooms provided all of the room needed. The heated pool is perfect and well maintained. The area is easy to find and accessible to Fort Myers area. So, Jessica and Tom have a great place that you will love.
We enjoyed the house, and pool. It was nice to have plenty of towels and kitchen supplies for our large family. Neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. Location is perfect to get to ft Myers beach and Sanibel island. Beach stuff was great to use and convenient.
one minor thing was the TV's. the master bedroom tv wasn't hooked up to the cable and the DVD players didn't work.
Thank you Tom and Jessica for sharing your Cape Coral home with us this August 2016. We really enjoyed the home, pool, boat, kayak, and the nearby beaches. It truly is a vacation home our family will remember and highly recommend!
The house was clean, with plenty of comfortable seating and sleeping for our crew of 9. The kitchen was well stocked and served us very well. We also enjoyed a couple of meals prepared on the gas grill.
While we spent a fair amount of time at the home, we also visited 5 beaches during our stay from Siesta Key beach, where we spotted a dolphin swimming nearby, to Marco Island beach, where we collected many conch shells. With two daughters seeking some photo opportunities we were able to get those much desired photos for an upcoming HS graduation and engagement pictures at Sanibel Island beach. We also enjoyed a sweet sunset at Fort Myers beach and took our dog with us to Paw Park beach.
We also enjoyed the boat several times out on the river catching a breeze, scenic views, and few splashes of water. We weren't brave enough to venture into the Gulf, but the boat enabled us to view homes and see some sites that really created a whole new view and some great memories of the area. Thanks so much for helping us through a minor boat issue, and keeping the boat operational during our visit! While the boat was being repaired one day, we enjoyed paddling through the canals in the kayak. It was very cool to have fish jumping within a couple feet of the kayak.
After time on the beach or out in the boat we were able to relax and get refreshed in the pool. The pool was clean, comfortable and really made this vacation home the complete package.
This being our first vacation home rental experience, I sincerely thank Tom and Jessica for answering my many questions honestly and accurately. You are a pleasure to speak with, and you enabled us to relax, and have a vacation without worries. Thanks so much!!
We enjoyed our stay, the home is decorated lovely, very well equipped, clean and well maintained, it is everything it says it is. The owners were super wonderful to work with and were available instantly by phone to answer any questions. I recommend this property for families and couple looking to relax and enjoy the pool and boat.
We stayed in this home during September, which is the "slow" season in this area, so we got a fantastic package deal including house, boat, cleaning, etc for one price! What a deal! Don't get me wrong, it's hot during September, but we are from the St. Louis area, and left a whole summer of 100+ temperatures and no rain, so a bit of 85 degrees didn't bother us a bit! The house was fantastic; loved the way it was decorated; it was clean, and had everything you could possibly need. We spent every morning and evening out on the lanai, and all day almost every day out on the boat fishing and checking out the area. The Waterfront Restaurant on Pine Island in St. James City was a great place to hop off the boat for lunch and a beer, and Matlacha is probably a fun place to visit by boat during the busy season. Although there are a couple of islands within easy boatiing distance, the beaches aren't exactly what I am used to--the water here is "tea stained" and you can't see much once you get about 3 feet out. There isn't a lot of sand, mostly broken shells, so if the beach is what you are looking for, you may want to drive to Sanibel and spend the day there, although they don't allow any alcohol on the beach (keep that in mind if you imagine yourself sitting in a beach chair with a nice cold drink!) For kids, there's a skatepark and waterpark in the area, but most watersports and things are in Ft. Myers.
The fishing was really good some days; i personally caught a shark, a flounder, a nice redfish, some trout, a good size pompano, and a couple of sheepshead; most of them in the current off Big Shell Island, although a few in the grass flats.
Don't let the weather forecast scare you; thunderstorms are predicted every single day, although when we did actually get rain it lasted only about 20 minutes; we got caught out on the boat a few times and it was no big deal, so that just tells you that the little bit of rain doesn't really affect things much.
Overall, Jessica was great to work with; it was easy messaging back and forth and she provided all the information I asked for--that's important to me--an OWNER who will take the time to answer my questions, as these management companies don't seem to care if they rent the houses or not--it's like pulling teeth to get information out of them. She was very flexible too, everything I asked for was not a problem for her at all. It wsa a great vacation, and we will surely be coming back again!
We rented this house for our family vacation and loved it. We have been traveling to Florida for vacation for 12 years, typically Orlando. The past 2 years we have decided a change of pace would be nice. After staying here and actually relaxing on vacation, I doubt we will ever go back to the parks for vacation.
The house is beautiful. Very clean and spacious enough for the whole family. The pool is perfectly heated and everything is on a timer. All you need to do is jump in. The location is perfect. You walk out the back door, thru the patio and right down the steps to the boat.
That was our favorite thing, using the boat. Not just for fishing, but for sightseeing as well. We were amazed that we could see dolphins jumping by one of the bridges. You can also use the boat to ride over to the local beaches. The fishing was great. There is a local bait shop close enough to walk over and get what you need.
The owners have a book there for you to access all information needed. They were very helpful and quick to answer if we had any questions. Everything you need is just minutes away; stores, restaurants, gas station. I would definitely recommend this place. We can't wait to return.
