For the beach, we have very comfortable beach chairs, mats, towels, cooler, frisbee and football. And a bucket - if you're serious about shelling!

We love hearing about your travels and experiences and would be glad to share ours. In addition, we would be glad to be your resource for Cape Coral and SW Florida.

We are conservative patriots who enjoy reading, the Bible, a good movie, craft beers and different wines, grilling and BBQ - and love sun, sand, surf and seafood. We very much like to travel and discover new restaurants and destinations.

Please - no politics, no religion.

We live in a very safe neighborhood especially condusive to walking, jogging and bike riding, surrounded by canals and waterways. We are close to shopping, restaurants, marinas, guided fishing and water tours, boat and kayak rental, major roadways, transportation and medical facilities. RSW (Southwest Florida International Airport) is approximately 18 miles. The Cape Coral Yacht Club and beach is approximately 4 miles away. Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva beaches are approximately 12 miles away.
Our favorite beach area is Lovers Key, just south of Fort Myers Beach, about 15 miles away. It is a gorgeous State Park preserve with an excellent beach - you can walk for miles! It has a small fast food restaurant, beach chair and umbrella rental, very clean rest rooms, changing areas and outside showers. Entrance is $8 cash per day, per car.

While public transportation is nearby, A CAR IS A NECESSITY to be able to come and go as you please. (Sorry, we do not provide transportation.) You will need $2 cash each time you cross the toll bridge coming onto the Cape, none to exit. Entry onto Sanibel and Captiva via the toll bridge is $6 cash, none to exit. Parking is $4/hour on Sanibel and Captiva, credit cards OK.

Rick and Betty's place it is a dream vacation home in Cape Coral. Impeccably clean with all the amenities needed. Rick was very welcoming and attentive to anything that I needed but at the same time I had the privacy I needed when I wanted. I enjoyed having breakfast in the lanai with Rick. Very educated men and very savvy. Rick brought to my attention about an owls nest close to the house which I was fascinated to meet 6 baby owls that were adorable. Wonderful stay!!!

I had a very nice, very comfortable stay in Cape Coral this weekend thanks to Rick and Betty. I did not get a chance to meet Betty but Rick was very welcoming and nice. The home is very nicely finished and in a good location for seeing the area. Rick was great company and was very attentive to ensuring that I was comfortable during my stay. I highly recommend and if I am in the area again I would definitely reserve this room again!

Rick is definetly the best and most professional AirBnB host. Unfortunately we did not meet Betty because she was out for work. The house is located conveniently for most places in the area. It is important to have a car to get around as it is written in the description. Rick welcomed us and let us feel as we visited a friend right from the beginning. He knows a lot about the area and likes to share many useful information with the guests. You will have your private bathroom which is very clean and in very good condition. Rick even offers a divider for the corridor to the bathroom for full privacy, even though his room is on the other side of the house. We had a great time staying with Rick and we would definetly come back.
