Our home away from home.

April 17, 2014

We have just enjoyed 3 months in this beautiful home, we call our paradise. The owners go over and above with every amenity needed. The location is ideal and the magnificent view of the wide canal and sunrise in the morning is worth waking up for, not to mention the dolphins. Thank you Margo and Earl for allowing us to stay in your home the last 5 years.

A Piece of Heaven

April 16, 2014

We fell in love with this home from the moment we stepped through the door. The home is lovely and well taken care of. The views are stunning. It's the perfect spot to wake up each morning, jump in the pool, and then spend the day on the water. The location is moments from the river and beaches. The home is well appointed and in excellent condition. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We spend at least two weeks each year at this property. When we leave, we are planning the return. This is truly a little piece of Heaven.

Margo Stafford

Owner's reply:

Thanks Liz
Always great to have you and Chris come back this will be your 5th year.. Looking froward to seeing you again.Stay warm.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We've had there great holidays in Cape Coral but this has been by far the best! House, boat and view all fantastic.
Great host and boat captain. Earl's attention to detail is second to none.
We had some great boat trips to Sanibel, North Captiva and Cabbage Key including tasty lunches at local restaurants.
Saw dolphins nearly every day and made good use of the pool and lanai.
What more could we ask for?
Thanks to Earl and Margo for a fantastic holiday.

Another enjoyable stay. Love the changes Earl and Margo have made. Made good use of the new boat! Saw lots of dolphins this year. Will be sad to leave, but hopefully will return next year.

Thank you so much for making our stay in your beautiful villa so wonderful. This was not a house, it was a home with all the thoughtful details and pretty Christmas tree. We cannot thank you enough. The location wonderful and the view breathtaking. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the boat.

Had a great time. Everything perfect - sunshine everyday. The boat was good and we visited all the islands. Seeing the Dolphins every day was quite special. The days passed too quickly! Surely the days here must be shorter than home! This was our 3rd. trip to Cape Coral and we will be back for a 4th.
