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

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 !

Beautiful Canal Home

  • 5 of 5

We have never been so impressed with any home we have previously rented. This is a beautiful home in a fabulous position by the canal...house was fantastic, bright, welcoming, and has everything you need to have a wonderful vacation including bikes and kayaks. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed riding the bikes everyday. The pool was fantastic with plenty of furniture to sit and relax and enjoy the unbelievable view and enjoy our meals. If you enjoy fishing, the Tiki Hut on the dock can't be beat! We rented a boat, which was delivered right to our dock, and were out on open waters within minutes and had an amazing time boating to Fort Myers Beach.

Thank you Sue and Bruce for a wonderful and memorable vacation! We will definitely be back next year!!

Relaxing time

  • 4 of 5

My husband, two boys, one of their girlfriends and our two fur babies had a great time. Bruce and Sue's home is very welcoming and has that home feeling with the extras (pool and AWESOME view). My husband and I enjoyed the sunrise on the tikki hut while drinking coffee and the sunset with an adult beavarge at night. Even though past reviews said the fishing was great, we didn't have much luck with that except that my husband did catch a sting ray. We had fun trying though. Most of our week was spent at the house playing in the pool and just relaxing. We did ride over to the beach one day and of course Sue had all you needed for that. We enjoyed walks every morning in the quiet neighborhood with our dogs. If you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful, and enjoyable time I definitely would choose this house for your stay. Sue was very helpful and easy to book with. If we ever visit the area again I know for sure I would book from her. Thanks Sue for allowing us to rent your home and making our family vacation a very relaxing and enjoyable time as a family. Hayes Family Belton, SC

Another wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property. Once again the home exceeded our expectations. The home was spacious enough to accommodate our family of 6. The location of the home provides a relaxing environment both inside and out. The pool is well kept and maintained. The Tiki Hut is perfect for coffee in the mornings and drinks in the evenings. It is situated perfectly to watch sunrise and sunset. We really enjoyed watching the dolphins and manatee in the canal. Be sure to take time to enjoy the kayaks and bicycles which are provided. Sue is fantastic to deal with. Great communication from check in to check out. Very easy process. Deposit returned quickly. We look forward to returning next year. Eric and Faith Willoughby

We enjoyed our stay. Home was lovely, had everything we needed. Would have loved to stay longer. Quiet neighborhood, with very nice neighbors. Weather was beautiful, we had a constant breeze on the dock under the tiki hut (24/7). That was amazing! It was very hot in Cape Coral the week we were there, 90+ degrees but with the breeze from the water you had no idea how hot it really was. Even though this home is one of the older ones in the neighborhood I have to say the set up was perfect. Beautiful views from almost every room. Kitchen fully stocked. Love the large countertop area. Place was very clean and beds were very comfy. We brought our own paddle boards, we also went kayaking with the kayaks that the home provided, we fished and BBQ everyday...It was a fabulous time. We would definitely return.
