|Minimum Stay||3 - 14 nights|
We worked very hard to make Villa Del Rio an oasis! Every part of our home, from the backyard lanai, with lovely romantic decor and one-of-a-kind amenities, to the bedrooms and baths, have a personal touch. The interior design of our home, Villa Del Rio, has been designed by Karen (my wife) to have all the allure of an exclusive getaway. We come here to relax.
Hidden away in Cape Coral's Yacht Club area - yet only minutes from the beach or downtown Cape Coral - Villa Del Rio is your ultimate Cape Coral vacation rental... come stay at our place! We hope that even the most well-traveled among you will OOH and AAH over all the little luxuries that await you at Villa Del Rio?
This is especially true of the over-water sun deck ... it features a private sitting & dining area, sun loungers to get that great Florida sun tan or watch the dolphin that regularly visit our boat dock and plenty of space to tie up your boat we highly recommend it! It is one of the things I miss the most when I am not in the Cape!
Those traveling with you will feel equally pampered in the four elegant guest bedrooms:
All have their own bathroom; we don't want to share everything. Two have King-size beds and two have Queen Size beds (one of which is downstairs),
But the real showstopper is the covered backyard oasis - the perfect retreat. We designed the yard and living area to blend into one another. We spend so much time here... it is just lovely to curl up on the couch. Watch your kids splash around in the sparkling pool as you sip cocktails. The garden is lushly landscaped and has a cool, private feel.
As night falls, gather around the granite-topped outdoor dining table and savor an alfresco dinner right off the grill. You will normally find me in the spa with a glass of wine, enjoying the night sky.
Prefer to eat inside? Karen is one amazing cook and has created an awesome kitchen. She always spoils us with great food. We are sure someone in your group will want to take advantage of this great kitchen and all its amenities! We also have an elegant indoor dining area adjoined to the formal sitting room which overlooks our pool & garden. A holiday dinner here is simply perfection.

owner/property manager purchased this villa in 2006
We found Cape Coral in 1999 & fell in love with the area. It was so relaxing & with is 400 miles of canals & easy access to the Gulf it was our dream to own a home there. In 2006 we built what is now Villa Del Rio. Renting our home has been a fantastic experience — largely because of all the interesting guests we’ve hosted! We just love to hear how they have enjoyed staying at our home in the Cape & how relaxing they found the whole experience.

I wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had at your home in Cape Coral. Your home has an exceedingly comfortable feel about it and everyone is right at home immediately. The decor is charming and I got the feeling you had done some redecorating during your visit earlier this winter. The pool and dock 'are worth the price of admission'. What beautiful areas and unbelievably quiet. We spend many a late afternoon enjoying a glass of wine and the setting sun from there. I wish I was back in Cape Coral.Sandy
Yet again we had a wonderful stay in Cape Coral. The house has to be seen to be believed. It is exactly as described, clean, comfortable and the pool is to die for. The secluded, quite location is exactly what my wife and I needed in order to have a completely relaxing break from our busy lives. Restaurants are plentiful and not expensive, self catering is easy as there are large Publix & Win Dixie supermarkets within 5 minutes drive. I can't recommend this property too highly. Superb.
We had a glorious 3 weeks in this lovely villa. It was our second visit. Here are some of the things we love about it:
•Fantastic, huge, comfortable beds (holiday locations don't always have them and this can ruin the experience)
•Extremely well equipped (we like to cook and eat in a lot, so the kitchen equipment, BBQ, crockery and glassware are excellent)
•The lanai, pool, garden, boat deck etc (very spacious, good outdoor furniture, lovely pool
•The boat (very nice, good engine)
•The location - very good for access to all beach areas, islands, restaurants etc. This year the wildlife was particularly great - we saw large numbers of dolphins and seabirds, and some alligators, and we caught some amazing fish (and cooked some of them on the villa BBQ). That's a big part of the attraction for us for this part of the world.
•The service - the villa management was great, and responded quickly to any queries or problems.
•The wifi - very necessary and good reception
We had a marvellous time and would have no hesitation recommending it to anyone.
The villa is an ideal choice for those spending time on and off the water. The interior is spacious and you can see the effort that Kevin & Karen have made on the decor - it is lovely. The pool area is also very spacious, is really well furnished and has lovely views over the canals and down to the boat dock.
I would definitely recommend Villa del Rio to anyone looking for a bit of luxury in a very relaxed atmosphere. The villa has everything you will need.
Thanks Kevin - we hope to return soon!
The location of this Villa was perfect for us, out of the way to be quiet but lots of things to do a short drive away. The property was very clean, spacious and well maintained. Perfect for fishing off the dock or just relaxing by the pool. We had an amazing holiday and would recommend this Villa to our friends and Family.
My wife and teenage daughters stayed at Del Rio in early April '10 and it was terrific! Sometimes website pictures can be misleading, but this property was as good as advertised.
The house is beautiful and clean. The outdoor patio and kitchen were ideal for a family and the heated pool and spa were great. With the weather 80 degrees and sunny everyday, it was our most relaxing vacation in years.
Highly recommend if you just want to relax, get some sun and hang by the pool.
We (just 2 of us) stayed in this lovely, spacious, clean and beautifully furnished home from 17-31 March 2010, having taken a direct BA flight from Gatwick to Tampa. The drive down from Tampa was approx 2 hours.
The villa is at the head of a small, quiet cul-de-sac in a very safe area of Cape Coral. The details say ‘sleeps 8’ and the facilities provided are for 8…no need to get up early and reserve your sun lounger before sunrise!!!. The photos and ‘virtual tour’ on the owners website are 100% accurate – what you see IS what you get.
The pool was excellent with heating an optional extra. I have to say we had very un-seasonal cold winds so I turned up the thermostat. For this, and the rest of the electricity used in 2 weeks, we paid $176.
The Yacht Club beach is a leisurely 10 minutes walk away but if, unlike me, you enjoy a beach holiday be aware this isn’t a ‘seaside beach’ as such. Rather it stands alongside the Caloosahatchee River. In my opinion much more interesting than a conventional beach. I loved walking down there at sunrise to savour the peace and quiet.
There are some very nice restaurants both at Cape Coral and Fort Meyers but our favourite was The Rum Runners. The service was faultless and the food delicious. Sunday lunchtime was surprisingly quiet and we were able to get river view seats. Be aware that at most of the popular eateries you are unable to pre-book and the wait can be anything up to 90 minutes for a table. All in all, a wonderful relaxing holiday in one of the nicest villas we have stayed in over the last 35 years. You won't be disappointed.
Our dream home is located in the quiet Yacht Club area of Cape Coral. The Yacht Club area is one of the most sought after areas in Cape Coral! This neighborhood is bursting with energy with bike riders, walkers, runners, boaters, water lovers, and folks of all ages who are looking for a wonderful place to call home.
The Yacht Club was built in 1958 and is one of the original landmarks of the City. Located directly on the Caloosahatchee River, minutes from famous beaches, in a beautifully landscaped setting, boaters and residents enjoy a bustling neighborhood complete with a Community Park, waterfront restaurant complete with entertainment, public beach, fishing pier and community pool. Many events are held here including 'Sunset Celebrations' which take place the first Wednesday of every month and feature 40-50 local arts & crafts vendors, live music and gorgeous SW Florida sunsets over the water. This area has always been one of the most desirable areas to live.
