Life is better on the water! Inhale the peace of the water as you take in the breathtaking river views from almost every room in this riverfront home! As soon as you arrive, you'll begin to exhale all of your stress as you are drawn to the water through the expansive sliders to the river. The coastal decor throughout the home will beg for you to say "Alexa please play Jimmy Buffett". Next stop is the blender for a frozen concoction and out to the tiki! Check out the video to get you super excited. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLQyF52fq3o

This lovely home was decorated with items created by artists throughout Florida to complement the light and bright theme. If you want luxury meets island meets comfort then this home is for you. Every piece of furniture was placed with comfort and conversation in mind.

Every comfortable bed hosts top of the line, comfortable mattresses with luxuriously soft linens and fluffy pillows you will simply sink into. No need to bring towels as the home has plenty of thick, resort quality towels as well as large, soft poolside towels.

The main floor offers a large master bedroom with plenty of closet space and drawer space as well and sliding doors out to a private patio to enjoy morning coffee or an after dinner cocktail. The ensuite master bathroom has a jetted tub, large shower and separate sinks as well as a dressing table.

There are two lovely guest rooms each with a queen-size bed, smart TV, large closet and dresser drawers for plenty of storage. The main bathroom servicing these bedrooms is light and bright with a large step in shower.

As you take a walk upstairs, you'll notice more river views, and a separate and private area with a large living room with two electric reclining sofas and more expansive views. The moonlight makes its way through the cupola and adds another level of relaxation. Open the sliding doors to the private upper deck and view the moonrise or watch the boats go by. Beyond the living room is a newly renovated family bedroom complete with a queen size bed as well as two twin bunk beds with adult quality mattresses. The ensuite beautiful bathroom has two beautiful vanities and a walk in shower. Make your coffee from here and enjoy on your private deck before joining the rest of the guests on the main floor.

There are two gathering living areas on the main floor with plenty of room for catching up or watching your favorite show or game on the 75" flat screen, Smart TV. If it is the ambiance from a fire you'll looking for, with a quick click on the remote the living room gas fireplace is ready to oblige.

The modern kitchen is complete with a chef-quality gas range, microwave, dishwasher and large refrigerator with filtered water. Prepare your meals, you guessed it, as you watch for dolphin. There is plenty of serverware and dishes for meals whether inside or out. Love wine? There are two wine refrigerators in the home for your use - one upstairs to enjoy a glass on the upper deck and one down - well for everything else! Serve your meals on the expandable dining room table inside which seats 10-12 or the expandable dining room table outside which also seats 10-12. Wherever you choose to dine, you will enjoy the beautiful view of the river.

We mustn't forget technology! There are multiple large-screen, smart TVs throughout the home with Directv or use your favorite streaming service. High-speed, WIFI powered by fiberoptic technology is, of course, available throughout the home with extra boosters to ensure you can truly work or play from anywhere.

Outside is just as amazing as the inside. Imagine reflecting on your day with your family or friends as you sit in comfort on the large dock on the river. You will quickly be drawn in by the life on the water. Dolphin make their morning and dinner appearance almost daily while the underwater fish light attracts numerous fish species to view or take up a seat on the edge of the dock and cast your line and reel in your big catch of the day! If a rain shower passes by, take cover under the large dockside Tiki Hut or you may choose to wait it out under the covered patio area with the comfy cushioned chairs. You may decide to relax in the heated saltwater pool or in the spa or around the propane fire pit. Feel a little competitive? Play a game of corn hole, or Jenga out on the dock. Whatever you choose, you will be choosing wisely.

This home is conveniently located to multiple excellent restaurants, favorite cocktail stops and shopping. There is really no reason to leave the Cape for an excellent meal or cocktail. Multiple excellent restaurants have been added since we arrived in 2016. We have a list of some of our favorite places including mixologists for that special cocktail! Kids need to run off some energy? Cape Coral has a long list of impressive parks for families with children including the newly renovated Sunsplash Waterpark. Cape Coral has its own beach but if "shelling" is on your "to do" list, Sanibel is a quick drive or boat ride away.

Renting a boat or PWC (jetski) - no worries, keep it right at the house so you can hop on and view that amazing sunset from the water! We just need a signed dockage agreement and proof of insurance.

*Discounts for extended stays
*Pool heat is $15 per day

We do need to share that we have a no smoking policy in the home. If you choose to smoke, please use the receptacles placed by the dock.

Getting around

Uber & Lyft are readily available. The city bus service has a stop less than a mile away. We are on the Caloosahatchee which has quite a few restaurants accessible by boat. The best way to go to dinner! We recommend a car to access the best and most of the Cape and surrounding towns like Sanibel and Ft Myers. Matlacha is like Cape Coral's own little Key West -- bright, color, artists and great music and restaurants.

We are very excited to share this beautiful home with those that need a little bit (or a lotta bit) of relaxation in their lives. We have been there! We both come from hectic work schedules of long days and busy travel. True happiness is when we bring our friends together and laugh until we can't breathe! And, especially, when we bring our family together of four generations and witness love at its purest and finest. This house does that for us and we hope it does the same for you!
