About the property

Gulf Access, Heated Pool, Sleeps 10, River Views

This 2500 square foot home is the ultimate vacation home for the entertainer and boater. The house has a very open floor plan, yet affords privacy for all. If one group chooses to watch sports or a Netflix movie on the 60 inch TV in the family room or the Den TV , another group can converse or read in the living room, den, dining room or bedrooms.

The location next to the river is in Palaco Grande, nicknamed the “Gold Coast” of Cape Coral where you can watch dolphins, rays and fish play from the comfort of your deck chair.

Walk down to the private dock under the Tiki Hut to fish or or sunbathe or take your boat on an adventure to Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and beyond! By boat, the Gulf of Mexico is just 20 minutes away! We are also close to golf, great restaurnats, shopping and outlet malls.

At days end, the best place to be in Cape Coral is right here poolside on your private lanai, enjoying the breathtaking Sunsets while sipping a beverage, grilling a steak and sampling southern Florida fresh seafood. Our pool is heated both by solar and electric so you can swim at your desired temperature.

Inside, you'll find spacious, light filled rooms with panoramic views of the water from every room! You'll love the sliding doors that disappear into the walls, opening all the main living areas to the screened lanai

The master bedroom suite is 12 x 35 and is decorated in a spa like atmpsphere with a coastal style king size bed with temperpedic mattress, walk in closet, make up area, 48 inch TV with Netflix, reading chair and shower. Sliding glass doors lead to the lanai and pool.

On the opposite side of the house one guest bedroom features a king bed and the other guest bedroom has a queen bed and a Twin sleeper chair overlooking the water.

Additional sleeping space is available in the den with a queen sleeper (and its own 48 inch TV).

This is truly a home, not just a vacation rental, elegantly appointed and furnished with every amenity needed for a relaxing vacation. The home is fully furnished with all the amenities you need for a easy vacation. Linens, towels, beach towels, Laundry soap, bath soap, dish detergent, fishing poles, cooler, gas grill, etc, etc, this is a home away from home.

Don't miss out on staying in the home with the spectacular view!

About Sue Larson

We accelerated the timeline of owning a vacation home in Florida after Sue battled (and survived) two different cancers over a four year time period. We learned the lesson of living our dreams now! After 7 years of owning and renting a vacation home in Cape Coral, we relocated to that home in August 2017. We'd like others to live their vacation dreams in one of our 4 vacation homes!

Sue Larson purchased this house in 2015

Why Sue Larson chose Cape Coral

We admired this home for years as we passed it to boat to the river and onto the Gulf. We would also walk by the home as it is just 5 houses away from our very popular VRBO 332069 home. We loved the location, the fact that the huge Tiki hut gave views in all directions AND the house had a spectacular view of the river. As it is at the entrance to the river, we see dolphins, rays, fish, all sorts of wildlife as well as boat watching! When the home become available in January, 2015 we immediately bought it long distance having never seen the inside--that's how special the location is. We spent a month rehabbing the inside, painting from top to bottom, new flooring, new furniture, everything is brand new! This home is so special we were approached by 2 different couples to purchase it from us as we were working on it.

What makes this house unique

Incredible river views, floor to ceiling windows/sliding doors in every room. Bright, sunny, happy feel. Fabulous fishing, boating or just relaxing on the lanai or under the Tiki Hut at waterside. Wonderful upscale neighborhood of Palaco Grande. Very unique---great home, great location and premier neighborhood

We loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in your beautiful home! The home was very clean and had everything we needed for our family vacation. During our stay we went to Captiva and Sanibel Island and had everything we needed. The home included beach chairs, coolers and sand toys....perfect. My husband is a chef and he loved the kitchen and again he had everything he needed to prepare his fancy meals. Our family is Vikings football fans and we can't say enough about enjoying the game on Sunday with the 60" TV. The views are amazing and absolutely love the dock area with the Tiki table. We are already planning our next vacation with Sue Larson....she took very good care of us during our stay!! The Ramin Family

This Villa is true Florida Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second villa that we have rented from Sue and Bruce Larson and while we loved the first one, this Villa exceeded even our high expectations.

The location is perfect; wide canal just off the Calloosahatchee River with clear river views, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets (especially from the Tiki Hut), and the beautiful Palaco Grande neighborhood with royal palm lined streets.

We are boaters so the dock and slip made for easy access to our rental boat and the Sanibel, Captica, and Pine Islands with many spots to tie up for lunch or dinner. The lovely pool and large covered veranda is where we spent time when not boating.

As a party of four, we used the huge King Master Bedroom with access to the Pool / Veranda and the Queen Canal View Bedroom with corner windows. The large pocket patio doors truly made the indoors and outdoors one as we needed no heat or air conditioning during our stay. The attractive family room with gorgeous furnishings and big screen TV was where we caught up on the news of the day.

It was no surprise (since we had rented from Sue and Bruce previously) that the villa was immaculate and well equipped with all of the household items necessary for a comfortable vacation. As always, the communication and check-in process was prompt and smooth as silk.

Don't miss out on an opportunity to enjoy this little piece of Florida Paradise!!!

A beautiful and comfortable house with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house from November 25-December 9th and we were incredibly comfortable. The location is in an upscale area of Cape Coral and is surrounded by well kept homes and beautiful landscaping all around. It is an easily accessible neighbourhood and very quiet. If you love the palm trees in Florida, this is the place for you.

We originally chose this house as we could see ourselves having coffee in the morning and wine at night under the Tiki hut. We were not disappointed! We witnessed beautiful sunrises and sunsets every day. The house itself is well maintained and provides all the amenities you could think of. The kitchen is large with a side by side fridge/freezer so you have lots of room for your food. The counter space is very large and provides significant room to prep your meals or eat at the counter. There was a great supply of dishes, pots and pans and cutlery along with many other kitchen necessities. We only used the master bedroom which is absolutely huge. The bed is truly the most comfortable we have had the pleasure of sleeping in over any house we have rented. It made such a difference in having a great stay-especially since we were there for the two weeks. The family room is comfortable with leather couches and was a terrific place to wind down at night. The lanai outside was well used and we were able to eat all of our meals at the dining table outside which was exactly what we wanted for our holiday. The pool is heated by both solar and electric if necessary. It was at 91 degrees the entire time we were there with using solar only. We spent countless hours bobbing in the bath tub temperature pool. Truly relaxing and wonderful. We had an issue the first week where the ceiling fan did not work in the master bedroom and it was replaced immediately. The owners are close by and are very concerned about the satisfaction of their guests! There are bikes in the garage to be used as well as sit on kayaks. We enjoyed having those available at no extra cost as we normally rent bikes. They also provide chairs to take to the beach as well as umbrellas. Overall our experience was absolutely wonderful at this home. We were completely relaxed and felt at home the entire time we were there. We will be back next fall.

Big and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property, very spacious and very quiet. We stayed 5 days in October over MEA weekend and the weather was great (88 every day). This property has everything, the setting is at the end of the street in a quiet pretty neighborhood. We never saw any neighbors only an occasional dog walker in the morning so if you like peace and quiet this is it. The house is pretty big, with the 3 of us we never went in the 3rd bedroom or the living dining area which is quite large, all our time was spent out by the pool or down by the dock enjoying the weather. The pool is nice with a great view and very warm which is great for swimming at night. We went out to a sports bar called "Fins" that is about 3-4 blocks away easy to bike to on the cool bikes provided by the owner. Good seafood and lots of screens to catch the game on. At half time we went home to finish the game on the big screen at home - perfect. We also went to a place called "the Monkey Bar" which looks like a dive but is actually very nice inside and had great music and dancing outside! what a blast. The water views are great at this place and you can have a boat here if you want to there is a big dock area next to the fabulous tiki hut that you see in the photos. We were surprised to see no evidence of damage from the Hurricane, not just at this house but the entire neighborhood and surrounding area. You have to look hard to see any signs of a storm anywhere. Everything works and everything is provided, you can't really ask for much more that that. We loved this place and the neighborhood it sits in, we will definitely be back, thanks Sue and Bruce !
