Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Have fun!

Great place with a great price.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location great neighborhood, lots of towels and all amenities you would need

  • 4 of 5

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.

Clean, comfortable, lots to do

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Owner's Response: Dear Brian and Family; We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your vacation stay in August. It was an absolute pleasure to have you and your family stay. Thanks for helping to trouble shoot the boat issue and help us get you back on the water asap. Inevitably things break and need to be repaired. We regularly visit the property and try to keep up on all maintenance and cleaning, but things happen. Thanks for working through it and continuing to enjoy your stay while the boat was fixed. Cape Coral is conventionality located close to many beautiful beaches. Some of the best afternoon sunsets are at Lovers Key, Sanibel, or even the Cape Coral beach (5 min). We would love to have you and your family as return renters. Happy Vacationing!

GREAT Rental & Even Greater Deal!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
