'WHERE EVERY DAY IS A TROPICAL VACATION!'

Cape Coral House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms including pool bath, sleeps 6

Very private paradise. The yard is fenced for ultimate privacy. There are empty lots on either side and just nature across the canal. The pool and lanai area are huge with over 1100 sq feet of screened sunny splendor. The lanai area has a glass table for 4 with swivel, rocking chairs, two loungers, and 4 comfy cushioned chairs and coffee table. There is a large kitchen window pass through. Also on the deck area are another table for 4 near the gas grill and two other loungers. The spa seats 6 and has 50 jets, and lights. Along with 3 fans and lights, we also have two lighted palm tree lamps on the lanai just for fun! If you prefer to tan without a screen we have a separate tanning pad or the dock area. There is a small boat and electric trolling motor for exploring the canals. Inside we have air conditioning, lighted fans in each bedroom, living room and family room. This home is nicely furnished and decorated. Comfort is key! Reclining seats in the family room with a 50 inch TV.

Comfort is key!: All house furnishings are geared to comfort. You can put your feet up in the family room and really relax! There are plenty of glasses and bowls, utensils and pans. The lanai is large and has several seating areas. The pool is heated and protected from north winds in the winter. The hot tub has 50 jets and changing colored lights. There is an additional deck area for lounging, grilling, eating. There is even an area outside of the screened enclosure for tanning. Because the whole yard is fenced, it is extremely private for swimming and sunning.

The 50 inch TV has HD and includes many music channels. There is unlimited local and long distance calling in the US only. There is a wireless router and work area with view to the lanai and canal.

The dining table has swivel, chairs on casters. They are leather with arms, very comfortable for sitting. You can watch TV from the table if desired. Great for playing family games.

There is a printer for your use and two computer chairs.

Canal: This house faces East on a fresh water canal. It receives lots of sunshine all day from sun up through sun set. Because the house makes a little shade on the pool in the afternoon, it is still bearable on the really hot summer days. You can sit in our screened front porch area to watch the sunsets. There are no houses across the canal so this also contributes to the very private feel of this house. The canal is very close to Shamrock Lake, Lake Saratoga and Lake Kennedy. The little boat is yours to use for exploring the canals and lakes at no extra charge. There is even a fishing pole in the garage you can use.

Convenient Location: Another positive for this house is it's great location. You could walk or ride your bike (basket on bike) to the grocery store. You can ride bikes to two close by parks that have a playground for the kids. Sunsplash Water Park and Mike Greenwell's Family Fun Park are both only a mile away. It is very close to the main roads with restaurants. It is 10 miles to Cape Coral Yacht Club beach, 25 miles to Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach, about 8 miles to Fort Myers and the Edison/Ford Estate. The airport is 21 miles away.

This house is listed as the 22nd least expensive out of 869 listings for Cape Coral. You get a lot of value for your money when renting this house. Many guests return yearly after staying at Sunny Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This reveiw was left in our guest book by Tiffany V. from Lakeland, Florida. I'm glad everthing you needed was right there. Karen



We had the greatest time and everything was even better than we had hoped for! There was nothing we needed that could not be found in the house- what a delight. We all found something to do to relax and with children ages 14 yrs, 12 yrs, 6 1/2 yr and a 2 1/2 year old, I never heard the words: I'm bored- that was wonderful. Thank you Karen and Ken for sharing your private paradise with us. We really hope to come back again.

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We found this property to be above our expectations, having stayed in many villas in Florida we found this to be one of the best. The boat was an added bonus and had loads of fun going up and down the canals, we spotted loads of wildlife in and around the canal, look out for the otters they were so much fun. The master bedroom and en-suite were very comfortable, and we spent a lot of time in the hot tub. Sanibel and Pine Island are a must see, and also try the pizza place on Hancock bridge Blvd. called I Ragazzi Pizza, they are the most welcoming people, and the food is delicious.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind comments. We have tried to provide nice amenities for our guests. If we feel the need for something when we are there, we assume our guests would probably also like to have the same things.

. I agree that it is a nice canal system with close access to the Shamrock Lakes, Saratoga, Kennedy and Alhambra Lakes. I thought that otter was going to dive into the boat the first time we met him while exploring!

And as you mentioned it is convenient to be not so far from Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, Pine Island - the Matlacha Bridge, which I've heard is the busiest fishing bridge in Florida! Plus it is close and convenient to pizza, videos, grocery storres, pharmacies and fast food yet with the fence and trees you still have a set apart, private feeling when outside at the house.

The hot tub is a perfect ending for the many perfect days in Florida! I hope you will come back again some time!

VERY PEACEFUL AND HAD EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK FOR

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to spend a month! They had everything available..anything we needed it was there...just like home. Loved the fenced in yard-great for pets or kids. Enjoyed watching the turtles off the dock everyday, and listening to the birds sing. If you are looking for privacy, and a very relaxing, nice home...this is perfect. Also very close to shopping and restaurants. Thanks to Ken & Karen for sharing their beautifu home.

PRIVATE YET CLOSE TO NECCESSITIES.

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this home. Definitely close to restaurants, shops and beaches. The house is secluded with the open lots on either sides. We fished off the canal, had breakfast on the lanai. Very relaxing. My husband is ready to make this a yearly trip! The house had plenty of room for our family of four. We may consider coming back with our extended family. There would still be plenty of room. We swam in the pool everyday. The pool heater was great. I spent a few nights on the lanai in the evening just reading a book. I would recommend this house. The price was great, and we had a nice relaxing time. Now that we are back home with a temperature of -9, we REALLY miss the Florida weather!!

Thanks for sharing your home!

"SUNNY PARADISE" IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT

"SUNNY PARADISE" Is An Understatement
  • 5 of 5
The layout of house, lanai, pool and spa must be standard for Cape Coral. What's different here -- beyond the bikes and boat -- is that everything to make a great stay has been thought of and provided. Not just the terry robes, great after an evening dunk, or the extra power-bar at the computer desk, or even the scanner-printer loaded with paper; Karen and Ken have thought of everything. Reach for something that ought to be somewhere and it's right there.
We came to photograph birds (no better place in winter than Lee County) but enjoyed the lanai and the short ride to the seafood venues of Matlacha and just plain hanging out. First Class all the way.
(Suggestion: for a real hoot, contact the burrowing owl lady, who knows where the active burrows are.)
Not motel-modern -- this is a real home.

EXCEPTIONNAL!!!

  • 5 of 5
This 4-days stay was awesome. We were 2 couples and 1 child and felt better in this house than in our own. Everything is thinking to make your stay the most comfortable as possible. You find all you need and more (space, pool, jacuzzi, waterway bbq, bikes, fishing rods...). As written on signs in the house it is really the paradise. If we go back to Florida one day we will go there for sure !

FANTASTIC VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this lovely villa for ten days and had a fantastic time. The property is clean and well cared for. Karen is a great host! In fact we have recommended the property to our friends, who will be staying at this villa in 6-7 weeks time. The villa is close to all amenties. The pool is in sunlight all day. We had a great time exploring the local canals and lakes in the boat provided. My husband particularly enjoyed the hot tub and feeding the local turtles from the dock. This is a must stay place!!!
