The Hideaway, Casa Loma, The Hangout and Del Prado Steakhouse
Hi from Tammy!
School's out and we've been having fun staying at some of Cape Coral's hotels and motels.
We've been having so much fun, I haven't been very good about building new pages this month, but I did get a few up!
Don't forget to click on the links below to see new pages, more photos, videos, and information.
The Hideaway is a very cute and funky little resort that is appealing in a cozy kind of a way.
Rooms and suites are clean and bright with kitchenettes.
Amenities include a nice-sized pool, kayaks, a paddle boat, bikes, fishing, and a lounging area on their huge back deck over the canal.
The Hideaway is the second most affordable motel that I recommend in Cape Coral.
Go to my page about The Hideaway Resort to find out more, see pix and a video of our suite, and to see Evie.
Evie is a lady who is young at heart, and checked into the motel 14 years ago and has lived there ever since!
She was stuck in a wheel chair and was told she would never walk again, she had an injured leg and arm.
Well, God bless her, that didn't stop Evie, she moved to Florida, got swimming in the pool everyday and healed up her injuries.
She can walk now, has too many friends to count from all over the world, gets taken out to eat all the time, and is loving life at the age of 85.
We also stayed at Casa Loma, voted Best Motel/Hotel in Cape Coral for 2011, by Cape Coral's Daily Breeze Newspaper.
The view down the canal while swimming in their pool is amazing.
We also had that same view from our room. It was very enjoyable to watch the sunset while hanging out on our balcony.
Rooms and suites come with kitchenettes, recreation rooms are available in each of the two motel buildings, and a free continental breakfast is served each morning.
Casa Loma is the most affordable of the Cape Coral motels that I recommend.
Go to my Casa Loma website page to see pix and a video of our room.
Speaking of hanging out, we went to The Hangout for dinner.
I'd been wanting to try it since it changed over from being Houlihan's.
Which do you prefer, ribs slathered with barbeque sauce, or grilled with a dry rub?
Well, I take ribs any way I can get 'em!
The Hangout prepares their ribs with a rub made from secret ingredients and boy .... are their ribs super deeee-lish.
Head over to my page about The Hangout to see what else we ate.
The Del Prado Steakhouse was the other restaurant we tried for the first time.
We went for their Early Bird Specials, because the steak dinners are half-price.
I had Filet Mignon, and thought it was excellent.
I also really liked their Au Gratin Potatoes served as a side dish.
There's nothing like a good steak! Check out my Del Prado Steakhouse page.
If you haven't yet, you may want to see the photographs my daughter has taken of Cape Coral.
They make perfect gifts or souvenirs, if you are looking for something special.
You can get her photos on tee shirts, mugs, coasters, aprons, notecards, puzzles, etc.
Check out her pix at Cape Coral Photos.
Pic 'O the Month
For the Pic 'O the Month, I have a photo that I took at the Kids Fishing Derby at Cape Coral's Yacht Club Beach.
I got a kick out what was written on their cooler:
Happy 4th of July,
Don't forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.
For those of you who have read Weird Cape Coral, but haven't found the treasure yet, here are some hints:
Look for 3 places in the ebook where it says "treasure" in blue. Click on it, because each is a link to one of 3 pages on my website.
Each page is a place that I think is a treasure in Cape Coral.
Once you figure out the 3 places, email me from my Contact Me page and I will send you a password to a secret page with more information about buying real estate here in Cape Coral.
Have fun.......if you need help,
Come to Cape Coral
