Where is the best place to stay in Cape Coral?

We recommend choosing a vacation property in the area known as "South West Cape Coral". The homes here line a stretch of water known as the Spreader Canal, which offers easy access out to the Gulf of Mexico, and is therefore the prime location for boating enthusiasts in particular. You will also benefit from wonderful views of the waterways, expansive, airy homes, unmatched sunsets, and quick access to Cape Coral's main dining and entertainment area, which is in the local vicinity.

We also recommend staying in El Dorado Parkway, Cape Coral, one of the area's first streets that also offers unrivalled access to the water, as well as a prime location to pay a visit to (and get through nice and quickly) the historical Chiquita Lock in Cape Coral.
