Sometimes you just need to get away. Whether it’s a globe-trotting adventure across the ocean or a a staycation in your own city, it is nice to have a break. While I didn’t board any planes to enjoy a brief break, I sure felt like I was miles away (even if I was just down the road). I had the opportunity to stay at the Westin Cape Coral two weeks ago, and it was just what I needed to refresh and recharge. If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you may know that I’m in a bit of a transition stage. I so needed a weekend to relax.
Enter the Westin Cape Coral. Located about two miles from my home (seriously, I can walk there!), it is based at the Tarpon Point Marina. There’s restaurants, boats, and cute shops in this plaza. We frequently stop by for a walk on the docks to watch the sunset or for a few happy hour drinks. Yet, I’ve never actually been able to stay here. Living near and actually staying here are two different things. This was the ideal spot for a girls’ weekend. We honestly felt like we could stay here the whole time. There was no need to leave the property. Everything was taken care of.
The Westin graciously gave us a large suite with a killer view of the Caloosahatchee River. Oh, and there were two Blue Moons in the fridge waiting for me. It’s like they KNEW me.
This patio had a wide view of Cape Coral and Ft. Myers. I took this trip with a friend, and we used this area to relax and talk business! She is launching a yoga and coaching company, and we spent a few hours working on her new WordPress site. Being away from home gave me the motivation to focus and think about my own business. But, back to the room.
I took this from the window of one of the rooms in the hotel suite. My house is somewhere up there! I’ve never been able to see my city from this height, and it is beautiful.
Here is a peek at my room. Introducing the Heavenly Bed! Westin’s are known for their comfortable beds, and this one didn’t disappoint. The two nights in this room were probably the most well-rested I had felt in a long time.
And, with a view like that, it was honestly hard to get out of bed. Though, we had happy hours to attend!

Next to the pool is The Nauti Mermaid. It’s a waterfront bar with a stellar drink menu.
What to choose, what to choose…

Happy hour came with a view. Even if you’re not staying at the Westin, you can come by The Nauti Mermaid for palm trees and perfect drinks. I was impressed with the quality of the drinks, and they were worth every penny. Sometimes it’s okay to have a ten dollar cocktail. Especially when it looks like this…
