The pool is a lovely temperature as Garry recently installed a new solar heating system, nice to plunge into after a hard day of retail therapy. The area is really well served, on a practical level there are a number of large supermarkets, petrol stations, multiple fast food outlets and all other day to day requirements. Then there's the restaurants, Bubba's is a must and is only 5 minutes from the house, Yucatan at Fort Myers Beach is superb, these are just 2 of the many great eating places in the area. For take out Chinese give China Palace (Next to Publix on Cape Coral P'Way) a try, we loved it........4 times! We prefer Fort Myers beach to others in the area, Captiva has some nice beaches as does Bonita Springs but we would go for Fort Myers as 1st choice, we rented jet ski's (wave runners) and had a "hoot" flying along the waves!. The kids spent a great day wake-boarding at Revolution Park (Bayshore/1st Avenue, just before I75) which I would highly recommend and costs just $25 per person including all equipment. Miromar Outlets is a definite must do, just make sure you have plenty of cash or room on your credit cards! Coconut Mall is also good, Tangir is local and looks okay as well. Rent a boat if you want to see the area from the river, worth doing although can be expensive when you add in the cost of fuel, allow $400 for the day. Dolphins every few hundred yards and we even saw a manatee. We are going to Tampa Bay Rays vs Boston Red Sox tomorrow, with free post match concert from Train, huge band so the kids tell me.....I'll take their word for it. I would recommend the house, the area and in particular it has been a pleasure getting to know Garry, who is a great owner to work with. Thanks Garry, the Symes' have had a great time in your house.

Your home has an exceedingly comfortable feel about it and everyone is right at home immediately. The decor is charming and I got the feeling you had done some redecorating during your visit earlier this winter. The pool and dock 'are worth the price of admission'. What beautiful areas and unbelievably quiet. We spend many a late afternoon enjoying a glass of wine and the setting sun from there. I wish I was back in Cape Coral.Sandy
