As soon as you enter the property you will notice the sense of seclusion and peace in a cozy retreat. Yet, the property is still close to everything the city has to offer. Ideal for those who love exploring the area and local stores, fisherman of all skill levels, peace lovers, water lovers, sunset viewing, and fun-filled getaway.

The calming outdoor area offers a BBQ to prepare your favorite grilled dinners; an outdoor table to have your meals; some seating areas throughout the backyard to enjoy your morning coffee, and watch the most colorful sunsets. You'll also be entertained by the incredible variety of wildlife our city and its canals have to offer. The river is just 1.8 miles from the house by boat which is very convenient for those wanting to explore our waterways by visiting some of the most amazing beaches, nearby islands, and waterfront parks.

The kitchen offers everything you need to prepare a meal during your vacation and it's perfect for holiday dinners, fancy dinners, or just small simple dinners to try out with your family and friends. The kitchen is equipped with a regular coffee maker, blender, kettle, toaster, electric hand mixer, slow cooker cook/bakeware, cooking utensils, and much more. There is also a designed space for your children to do schoolwork.

The master suite features a comfortable king bed to enjoy a restful night's sleep and a TV for entertainment, as well as direct access to the pool area to ensure privacy between the master and guest suite. The second and third bedrooms are both equipped with a queen-size bed, a good-quality mattress, and a TV. All the TVs are smart TVs and have an antenna allowing you to watch some local channels and use your preferred streaming service such as Netflix. The second bathroom offers access to the pool area to freshen up after swimming in the heated pool.

"Very nice place to stay, nice wide open floor plan, comfortable, clean and well maintained. Nice outdoor space with pool. It was nice they had floaties, pool towels and indoor games. The canal makes for fun sightseeing. I wish I had known more about the fishing opportunities in the canal…we saw dolphins and manatee, so there must be fish! Nice well appointed kitchen and the fridge had a water dispenser. The grill is very basic, good enough for hot dogs and burgers. Our family of 5 would stay again!"

"5 stars on all. Great house, pool, outdoor area, location. Great price! Owners were so easy to work with. Only improvement I would recommend. A wall mounted magnifying mirror. The over 40’ish women and up will greatly appreciate it! (They have a handheld, yet I needed more magnification )."

"My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in this inviting home. The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Attention to detail was very evident throughout the home. There were extra towels, blankets, pillows and pool towels for guest use. We only needed plates and drinkware for our snacks and breakfast, since we ate at local restaurants for lunch and/or dinner. The kitchen was well appointed for those who would be cooking on-site. We were grateful that there was a "starter" supply of kitchen bags, washing/dishwasher pods, and some spices. There was even a surprise of beverages to welcome us after our long drive to Florida. We can not even begin to say enough beautiful things about the pool and lanai! While summers are hot and humid in Florida, it did not stop me from enjoying coffee outside each morning in the peace and quiet. We took a daily swim in the morning and enjoyed the pool again each evening after returning from dinner or an excursion. We loved that we could cool off in the pool while watching a movie or listening to music. Each door to the outside pool has an alarm - great peace of mind if traveling with young children. I also appreciated that we could disable it during our stay with no children. We had a little issue with ants in the Master Bed/Bath, but management offered to send out an exterminator right away, but it was minor that we did not mind wiping them up - it is summer in Florida after all. Highly recommend and we hope to come back!"

"Beautiful, clean, and well appointed house with sparkling pool! Located on a canal and just down the road from Publix. We loved sitting on the lanai watching the boats go by on the canal, swimming in the heated pool and watching tv out there. We will be back!"

"My husband and I stayed for 8 nights in March. The house is beautiful, clean and had everything we needed for our visit. We spent the majority of our time on the lanai or in the pool. There is comfortable furniture and a big screen TV out there. The canal was entertaining with boats coming and going throughout the day. The kitchen was well stocked and the laundry room was convenient. There is a grill but we didn’t use it. The location is close to a Publix grocery store and it was easy to get around. We will definitely be back!"

"My team was traveling for work in Ft Myers and we booked a few nights stay at Bruno & Mary‘s place. The location was very convenient to the areas where we needed to be to perform our duties. The house was immaculate with more space than we need. The pool was amazing. We had great communication throughout our stay with Mary and she always asked how she can make our stay more pleasant. She didn’t have to do anything as we had all we needed. I would strongly recommend this place for anyone or family visiting the area. Thank you Bruno & Mary for being great hosts."

"This property is WELL worth the money. Due to Hurricane Ian, this was the third property I booked for our vacation week, and felt like I was settling for whatever was available. Boy was I wrong. This property is PERFECT! Our family loves being outdoors and the spacious patio/pool/dining area fit our family to a "T". There was a gorgeous dining room table just inside the patio doors, but we only used it to set up our puzzle. We ate every meal outside, watched movies outside, drank our coffee outside, relaxed outside, etc. But if that wasn't enough, the second brick patio right on the canal was the icing on the cake. So peaceful being on the water. We did have to spend a little time inside when Hurricane Nicole came through, but being surrounded by lovely furnishings and having super comfy beds even makes being inside bearable. This house is in a bustling area of Cape Coral, so it isn't necessarily "quiet" outside, but it is not noticeable inside. We cooked most of our meals at the house and had all that we needed for cooking, with the exception of spices etc. and foil, saran etc. This may have been due to Ian having just gone through, not certain, but keep that in mind especially if you are flying, as we did. The only other thing to mention might be if you like to play games or do puzzles, bring those with you as well. If I am ever in Cape Coral again, I would DEFINITELY stay at this property again!"
