Additional Location Information
This house is ideally located in Florida’s Southwest Gulf Coast, which has a laid back lifestyle and is world famous for its Golfing, Fishing, and Beaches, including two of the world’s top-rated beaches. At 160,000 permanent residents (and roughly 300,000 with seasonal residents and tourists), Cape Coral is the largest city in the SW Gulf region. It is the world’s largest canal city, with a network of both fresh and salt water canals. It offers a variety of dining options and shopping opportunities. You will find most of them along Del Prado Blvd., Pine Island Road, and Cape Coral Pkwy. Some of Cape Coral's kid-friendly attractions include Sunsplash Family Waterpark, Greenwell's Family Fun Park, and the Eagle Skate Park. Nature lovers will enjoy the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve and the The Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail, a 190-mile marked canoe and kayak trail that meanders through Lee County’s coastal waters and inland tributaries.
Just across the river is the twin city of Fort Myers, the "City of Palms". It features numerous shopping, dining, and entertainment areas from high-end outlet centers, boutiques, and outdoor malls, to antique stores, and flea markets. Popular attractions include the Henry Ford and Thomas Edison Winter Homes, Broadway Palm Dinner Theater, Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, the Imaginarium Children’s Museum, and several mini-golf courses.
Fort Myers Beach, on Estero Island, is a must-see attraction, and is considered the world’s most child-friendly salt-water beach due to its gentle slope and low undertow. The many miles long beach has both active and quiet areas and includes rentals for boating, jetskiing, fishing, para-sailing, banana boats, pirate ship tours, and more. The town of Fort Myers Beach stretches all along the beach and provides easy access to plenty of shopping and dining, with fresh seafood, straight out of the Gulf of Mexico.
Two of the other barrier islands, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island, offer a more laid back beach experience with miles of easily accessible natural beaches. The beaches of Sanibel are considered the world’s #1 beach for shell collecting. The town of Sanibel Beach is a very quaint town of boutiques, antique stores, and restaurants. The retreat of Captiva Island is home to the rich and famous with numerous estates spread along the beach road.
Just 5 minutes from the house is Cape Coral’s own local beach with a playground, casual beach-side dining and a long fishing pier.
In addition to its beaches, SW Florida is renowned for golfing and fishing. There are scores of golf courses in the region ranging from easy Par 3s to world caliber courses. There are numerous fishing charter options to the Gulf of Mexico, from rent-your-own for the experienced fisherman, to fully assisted charters suitable for the beginner. You can rent a boat by the day or week and park it at our dock, with easy access down the main San Carlos Canal to the Gulf. Also nearby are everglade tours and alligator and manatee preserves.
With so much to see and do, it will be a challenge to find time to sit back and just relax by the pool deck, adjusting to the relaxed pace of the SW Gulf lifestyle.
