About Cheryl (owner/manager)

As the owner I've spent the last 30 years visiting this area of Florida. There are so many things that are special to me, the shelling, the beaches, the sunsets, the restaurants, the weather, the people and most importantly the beauty of the nearby islands is what makes it all so special. During my many visits to Florida I knew someday I would make it my home, that dream came true for me in 2011 and my goal is to now share the beauty of this area with you and your family, my goal is to make your vacation time or holiday away as memorable as it can be and for you to enjoy your stay and share in the joy that I know Florida to be....!!!!!

Cheryl (owner/manager) purchased this house in 2013

Why Cheryl (owner/manager) chose Cape Coral

Why stay in a Hotel when you can stay in your home away from home. Since the first day I moved here to Cape Coral, I wanted to share this area with others so that they too can enjoy the beauty that Florida has to offer. My property is your home away from home with it's comfy cozy beach decor, the huge lanai boasts a large waterfall pool with plenty of room for the family to enjoy endless fun in the sun. The backyard's western exposure allows for great sunset views. I want you to feel at home and enjoy your holiday as though you were in your own home so I've included beach supplies to include lawn chairs, beach umbrella, beach table and a beach cooler so you can spend time on the many nearby beaches I love to visit. It's proximity to Sanibel and Captiva Island make this a great location to enjoy some of the best beaches and shelling locations in the world. There is so much to do and so much to share that you can spend a lifetime here...!!!!! Which is why I now live here and have this property to share with you...!!!!

What makes this house unique

The home is decorated in a cozy beach décor to create a super relaxing feeling, it's location is close to a myriad of activities to include beaches, shopping, boating, fishing, history, art, theater, golf, great restaurants and most importantly the Best Shelling beaches and Best Sunsets in the World...!!!!!.

Our little piece of "PARADISE"

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked through the the door......WOW!! The house is BEAUTIFUL!!! ( inside and out ) VERY inviting, meticulously decorated and very clean. Spacious living area with that "COMFY-HOMEY feel to it. Was everything it was advertised to be and more.

We so enjoyed the screened in pool and the large covered Lanai. Was nice to be outside even when it rained.Very peaceful and private with the nicle fenced in yard.The overall eye-appeal was wonderful and soooo relaxing.

Quiet neighborhood with easy access to local attractions,shopping, grocery, and so many nearby restaurants.The BOathouse*, Backstreets, ( Miceli's*, Woodys Waterside, Lowkey Tiki( all in nearby St. James City) Nauti Mermaid, Fathoms., The Monkey Bar and soooo many more.

The house is fully STOCKED with everything you'd need..... Kitche supplies, pots/pans,towels, bed linens, beach towels/chairs, toiletries and such.Just come on in and ENJOY!! Cheryl has thought of everything.

Our only regret.......we only had time for a 1 week getaway in this....."OUR LITTLE PIECE OF PARADISE"

Sooo sad to leave...BUT.... We will be back!! Thanks again, Cheryl for opening your beautiful home to us and for a WONDERFUL stay. You ROCK, Cheryl!!!!!!!!!

Like paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the time we entered the house to the time we had to leave we felt welcome. Cheryl is wonderful to work with and after meeting her it felt like we had been friends for years. Everything in the house is exactly what you would hope for and more! The way the house is decorated is gorgeous. And, the pool is so wonderful. We were in there day and night.

Truly a Summertime Retreat

  • 5 of 5

When you first enter this lovely home, you really feel like you are at the beach. The home is so lovely decorated with a shore theme that is so relaxing. My family of 4 had more than enough space. The pool area & lanai are so beautiful and we spent so much time out there, especially my 10 year old son who did not want to get out of the pool. The neighborhood is so quiet & my daughter & I would ride the bikes that Cheryl has provided even in the evening. Cheryl has thought about everything to make it so easy for the traveler. From getting into the home up until departure she was always there for us even meeting us on our first day as well. We highly recommend this lovely house for anyone that wants to get away to lovely Cape Coral.

Wonderful place! Everything you need is here!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week here. It was a wonderful week, with everything you need to make your vacation memorable. Cheryl is outstanding to work with and see's that her guest are well taken care of! The house is beautiful in a nice neighborhood. Cape Coral and the Fort Myers area has about everything you could want. Shopping, putt putt, beaches, and just down the road, the Everglades. We had a wonderful vacation!

Thanks Cheryl for everything!

Absolutely Perfect !!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about Cheryl's home...it is absolutely perfect. Our vacation home was stocked with more items than our own home:) She has definitely thought of everything and then some. Location to area beaches was perfect...although I was just as content staying at the house floating in the pool, drinking, grilling. Cape Coral is an absolutely beautiful area and we hope to visit again soon. Thanks so much Cheryl for being a "text" away. Matt and Danielle VanEtten.

Owner's Response: Thank you Danielle and Matt, I'm so glad you felt the home to be stocked and enjoyed the area. Cape Coral is a great place. I am so happy you felt it fun and relaxing to just stay at the home ad relax at the pool and grill, that's my goal to make the home an oasis to relax at! Look forward to seeing you back again!

Perfect stay with EVERYTHING you need!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, It's apparent Cheryl put a lot of time and thought in everything there. Other than clothes and personal items you will need nothing when staying here. The pool was beautiful and an awesome private get away when you want to relax after a day shopping or at the beach. I can't think of a single negative to our stay here and will definitly stay again when in the area! Thank you Cheryl for the perfect vacation and look forward to seeing you again!
