Home Buyer, Cape Coral, FL
Hi, i suppose from your question that you would like to know about the area in general and not specifically about these apartments. My name is Chris and I am a 49 yr old German who has built and owned several vacation homes in Cape Coral since 2000 and i am always following the market to look for opportunities. I know this place very well. We lived in Dubai for the past 5 years but we still come back to Cape Coral at least twice a year simply because we love this place. I have to add that we are active boaters and for this reason Cape Coral with it's barrier islands (Captive, Sanibal, Cabbage Key, Pine Island) is like heaven for us. However, it is important to say that the Cape doesn't have it's own beach since it's surrounded by protected mangroves. You should know that Cape coral has some hundred miles of canals that allow you to dock you boat behind your property if you happen to have a waterfront lot. Lots of boat ramps allow you to slip your boat. During the boom the area advanced a lot with some fabulous new shopping centers and malls being built like Gulfcoast Towncenter. You have Germain arena in Estero for concerts, family events and hockey. Shopping is a breeze even within Cape Coral City limits. 10 years ago you had to cross the Caloosahatchee river to go to Ft. Myers for lot's of stuff but today you will find Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, Walgreens, Publix and a lot more in Cape Coral. The location of your Cabana Club apartments is excellent since you are close to one of the main arteries Cape Coral Parkway along which you find shops, restaurants and gas stations. It is also connected to one of the 3 bridges that cross the river ($2 toll for 2way trip). The apartments are also far south in Cape which is actually the nicer area. It's not far from Cape Harbour or Tarpon Point Marina where you have beautiful waterfront restaurants and a lot of action like bike night on Tuesdays with Live Music. I have seen other places in Florida but I think if you like a quiet not too crowded retirement place that is not too rural I believe you will like the place. There are a lot of vacation rentals in the Cape so I would suggest to spend 2 weeks there and check out the area. I can recommend Patrick Reid with Remax 239-443-1558 who I have worked with over the past 14 years. Hope this help!!
