BEAUTIFUL 3BR/2BA SAILBOAT GULF ACCESS HOME - HEATED POOL&SPA

Cape Coral Villa Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is a very comfortable single-family home on a direct Gulf access, sailboat-access canal that is less than 10 minutes to the Caloosahatchee River and less than 1/2 hour to the Gulf of Mexico.

The home features a master bedroom with a king sized bed, TV, walk-in closet with a recently renovated private bath featuring a tub and shower. One guest bedroom has a king sized bed. The second guest bedroom has a new queen sized bed, TV and a large walk-in closet. Across the hall from the second guest bedroom is a recently renovated bathroom with a large shower which is accessible to/from the screened in lanai/pool area for your convenience.

The full service kitchen is bright and has a double window which fully opens (6') out to the lanai and outdoor dining area. It has a garbage disposal and flitered water dispenser, dishwasher as well as the usual appliances ans a new stove and cooktop. The kitchen is open to the den and separated from it by an eat-in counter with two stools. The dining room off the kitchen has a wonderful view of the lanai, pool area and canal through double-opening, glass doors. It features a beautiful Travertine marble dining table for six.

The den is furnished with beautiful leather sofas, one full sized and big enough to sleep an adult and the other slightly smaller but very comfortable for two people. The entertainment center is in the den and has a full sized TV with a DVD player and VHS player as well as a stereo with surround sound.

The dining room is directly off the kitchen with a large Travertine Marble table and six comfortable chairs all on a beautiful marble tiled floor.

The very large living room is a great room for entertaining with a matching overstuffed and extremely comfortable couch, love seat and chair with an ottoman. The elegant side tables are matching Travertine marble bases with glass tops. The thick carpeting gives the room a warm inviting feel. Some of the furniture is antique and very well maintained. Most of the artworks are originals or signed prints.

The laundry room is down a hallway separated by a pocket door from the den and has an entry to the garage and features a full-sized washer and dryer as well as many cabinets for storage. This is also the computer station with a printer. We also have Wi-Fi.

The house has a two-car garage with off-street parking for two more cars in the driveway. There are many tools and a work bench area in the garage along with three bikes one of which has a child seat on the back of it.

The lanai/pool area is quite large with an oversized pool and features a six person spa as well as lounge chairs, chaise lounges, a glass topped table with four chairs, two stools at the kitchen access bar and a new stainless propane grill.

There is a path from the door of the screen structure that leads to the waterfront with more chairs and chaise lounges on another patio, a wooden dock area, a covered boat lift and jet ski lift. It even has a crab trap and there are fishing poles in the garage for your use. The landscaping is beautiful with many exotic plant varieties including bananas, grapefruit, lemons, limes and oranges and well as a small herb garden. You can catch your dinner, season it and make a daiquiri ... just add rum!

Great shopping and dining are close by. It is near the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve where you can hike and rent kayaks. There is a new park at the entrance of our canal from the Caloosahatchee River where you can launch a boat.

This part of Cape Coral is fun, unpretentious and friendly, and this is why we love it and think you will too.

We live on beautiful Lake Hopatcong in northwestern New Jersey and love the boating life including sailboat racing, antique wooden boats, canoeing and kayaking. Tom is a Landscape Architect and Genie is a Land Use Administrator. We have three grown daughters and one grandson and one granddaughter. We bought this home in the hope that we could use it more when we retire. The home is so comfortable and we feel our family will enjoy visiting us down here because there is something for EVERYONE here and everything is so convenient.

Tom Wiss purchased this villa in 2009

We thought the neighborhood was very friendly and safe. The canal ride to the river is short and is deep so you won't hit bottom and some of the canal is a park and undeveloped. There is a lot of shopping close by. The home is far enough away from the main drag so there is no traffic noise and the canal is quiet. A hospital is very close by. With no neighbors on the adjoining lots, outdoor space is ample and privacy ensured. We like that it is close to Fort Myers and the airport to pick up visitors. Also, Fort Meyers is a really neat town with upscale restaurants and lots of cultural events. The wonderful beaches of Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach are only a short drive or boat ride away. The Cape Coral farmers market is a great place on Saturday mornings during the winter months.

Warm temperatures, beautiful weather, a beautiful large pool, large spa, spectacular sunsets, great access to boating and sailing, convenient bargain shopping and great dining. Directly across and along the river are fabulous mansions we enjoy viewing from our boat. We drive to beaches both pristine and commercial, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Fort Myers Beach, Naples, the Planetarium and Aquarium, miniature golf and Pine Island that reminded us of the British Virgin Islands. There is also the great fishing of Charlotte Harbor very nearby.

Great family vacation rental. Rented home for a month and had family members join us with the grandchildren. Home was exactly as described in the listing and the photos were very helpful regarding decision making. All beds were comfortable, linens, bedding, well equipped kitchen. Dock area, pool, spa with lanai was thoroughly enjoyed so much so that the grandchildren have given us permission to rent it again for them. Thank you Tom and Genie for all your cooperation, information and communication regarding your lovely vacation spot.

DREAMVACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We are a family from Holland and stayed in this wonderfull house for 10 days and things couldn't be better! Tom and Genie answered all of our questions by e-mail before our visit and we recieved a document with tips/instructions. The house was very clean and everything we needed ( and lots more!!) was there for our use. Toys for the kids, supplies for the beach, plenty of towels etc....The pool is very large and the hottub so relaxing! We went to the beautiful beaches nearby that Tom and Genie recommended and even to the Everglades and the Keys! The perfect place for relaxing and visits to the beach. The Publix and other stores are nearby, so thats very handy also.
We hope to come back some time!! We would like to thank Tom and genie for sharing this wonderfull house with us.

BEAUTIFUL HOME WITH FABULOUS AMENITIES!

  • 5 of 5
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cape Coral. We felt completely at home for four incredible weeks. We're back home now and we miss Wisspering Pines!

All the facilities were top notch, especially the lanai, pool & hot tub. Our family including the grandchildren (20 months and almost 4-year old) were in the pool almost everyday. All the facilities & description of the house were exactly as described by Tom & Ginette. Our only surprise was that there were no surprises!

The neighborhood is very peaceful and it's a great area to recharge yourself.

And throughout our entire experience, Tom & Ginette were first-rate in giving us all the information we needed.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Very comfortable house in a quiet neighborhood. The pool and spa area is super nice and totally relaxing. Also enjoyed coffee in the morning down on the canal. Many great restaurants and beaches in the area, too. Very good communication with the owner and easy-to-follow instructions. A great week long getaway from the winter cold.

SIMPLY AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
What a quiet and relaxing place! And perfect weather. Exactly what we were looking for an "extra time of summer". We loved the pool, the hot tub and we enjoyed to sit in the lanai watching outstanding sunset sceneries and all the wildlife: jumping fish, sunbathing iguanas, busy lizards and many interesting birds. Everything in the house worked perfectly. Thank you very much for a great time!

PERFECTION, A TRUE VACATION EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I drove to Florida from Ottawa, ON and arrived to find the home exactly as described, in fact even better than described. It was clean, and well maintained. The heated pool was clean and always warm. We stayed one week with our 12 year old daughter who was in the pool constantly, and our 5 month old son, who also loved the swimming pool. Beds were very comfortable, which is really important to my husband and I. The kitchen and BBQ had all the necessities, so a grocery shop on day one had us set for the week. The area was very quiet, perfect for a truly relaxing family vacation. We were only 20 min drive from Fort Myers beach, perfect for us as we were only there for a few hours each day. Tom was prompt in getting back to us with our questions before booking and made the process easy.
This was our first experience renting someone else's property at it was seamless and stress free. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a low maintenance stress free quiet family vacation, but at the same time I wouldn't want Wisspering Palms to get so popular that we couldn't go back whenever we want, as we will definitely be back.

Our beautiful home is very close to Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, the bohemian Pine Island and Fort Myers Beach all of which are great day trips with wonderful scenery, great beaches, delicious restaurants, fishing from land or sea and some of the best beach combing in the United States. It is very close to shopping of all kinds yet far enouph away that there is no traffic and is extremely relaxing. Biking to the local park or the Ecological Preserve is another fun yet short trip. Rent a boat from the local boat livery and explore the canals, the Calosahachee River or go out to the Gulf or go Tarpon fishing in Pine Island Sound.

Our Home- it's a great place to go.

Notes:
Very close to a free, city owned boat launch area, park, ecological preserve and shopping. Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island and their beaches and islands are a short drive or boat ride away. This is a nice nieghborhood where we go bike riding on a regular basis and have wonderful nieghbors. The lots on both sides of the house are vacant giving you lots of room and privacy. There is a great farmer's market during the winter months in Cape Coral.
