CAPE CORAL 'GOLD COAST' HOUSE W/ HEATED POOL & BOAT LIFT

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Cape Coral - Drake's Escape

4BR/3BA Waterfront Home with Heated Pool and Dock/Lift

Located in Cape Coral’s “Gold Coast”, this 4BR/3BA pool home is located on the 200 foot partridge canal with direct (no bridge) access to the Caloosahatchee river and the Gulf of Mexico. There is a dock and boat lift for your boat (rentals available in the area). The expansive screened deck with its heated pool, southern exposure, lovely water views, BBQ and plenty of space is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your family and friends – when you are not going to the beach, kayaking, boating, jet ski touring, fishing, golfing, dolphin watching or pursuing the many activities offered in the area.

The house is 2,050 square feet and features tropical décor and landscaping. It is well-designed for a group with very comfortable common areas, including a sunny sitting room looking out to the deck and water, a comfy breakfast nook with both pub table and easy chair seating, a living room set up with a 42” LCD TV, and a formal dining table for family dinners.

The master bedroom (Captain's Quarters) enjoys some privacy from the other bedrooms, being on different sides of the house. The Captains Quarters has a queen size bed, sliding door to the pool deck, walk-in closet, and en-suite bathroom with large shower. The second bedroom (the Marlin Room) has a queen size bed, LCD TV w/ DVD and en-suite bathroom with shower. The third bedroom (the Palm Room) has a queen size bed, while the fourth bedroom (the Shell Room) has two twin beds and an LCD TV w/ DVD. The Palm and Shell rooms share a full bathroom with a bathtub/shower, accessed from the hall.

The kitchen is recently remodeled and fully equipped. The home has wireless high-speed internet, cable TV, and telephone, as well as a stereo w/ CD & USB plug-in. There is a washer and dryer provided for your use. The garage has parking for one car with a remote garage door opener.

Great stay...At a great home!

  • 5 out of 5
Great place to relax and enjoy the water and the area. Everything was super clean and very comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked which is hard to find at a rental home for a week. The place backed right up to the canal and was easily assessable to the river if fishing or boating is your thing. The pool is very clean and heated with a great outdoor space to relax as well. Snacks for both us, and our dog were waiting for us and made a great welcome gift upon our arrival!! I would recommend this place to anyone...and actually already did!! Thanks again.

Best home rental experience i have ever had. Great communications through the process. The home is a wonderful property and my family and I felt at home during our recent stay. House is clean, updated, and has everything you will need for a great stay in Cape Coral area. Hopefully we will get back that way again soon.

Definitely a "Home Away" from home!

Definitely a "Home Away" from home!

From the minute we stepped foot in Harvey and Alin's house, it felt like home! While the pictures are accurate, it was even better in person. It was absolutely amazing and TONS of room. We even received a call from Alin to make sure we had arrived safely. The layout was perfect. Linens/towels are provided as are little things like shower gel, shampoo, etc. The home was spotless when we arrived. There were plenty of games to play(only because it rained for the majority of the trip). We truly enjoyed just sitting and chatting down on the dock and by the pool.
Since we were down for a baseball tournament, aside from being at different baseball complexes around the area, we did not get to go to many attractions as we had to be ready to leave for a ballgame at a moment's notice due to the scheduling changes with the games because of rain. I cannot wait to return to Drake's Escape in the future when we can explore the area a little more. Harvey and Alin have a notebook waiting for you with restaurants to visit, stores, etc which was a HUGE help.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the Cape Coral or Ft. Myers area. The customer service is top notch!!

Great Waterfront Home!

  • 5 out of 5
What a great place! We (6 adults and 1 child) stayed at Drake’s Escape in late April and loved every minute. The layout of the house is perfect with the master BR on one side, 3 BRs on the other side, and plenty of common space to socialize in between. We spent a lot of time on the pool deck enjoying the sun, the water, the BBQ, the tropical landscaping and, of course, the heated pool itself.
We rented a boat for a few days, so enjoyed cruising to the Sanibel beach, restaurants and even an evening cruise around the Cape Coral canals looking at the houses.
The house is super clean and well maintained, nicely furnished and well appointed; it really feels like you are staying at a close friend’s home. There were lots of little thoughtful features like nice toiletries, well stocked kitchen, pool towels, and entertainment items (books, CDs and DVDs).
Would highly recommend Drake’s Escape for your family vacation.
