CASA DEL RIO, TROPICAL RESORT FEEL, BREATHTAKING RIVER VIEWS, LARGE POOL & DOCK

Cape Coral House Rental Photos and Description

Family Friendly, 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Luxury Riverfront Home With Pool And Dock

Casa Del Rio is a riverfront, luxuriously appointed vacation home, that feels more like a tropical resort. The water views are stunning and unparalleled. It is situated on a huge lot overlooking the massive Caloosahatchee river and expansive bridge connecting Cape Coral to Ft Myers. It has 80 ft of seawall right on the river and its own private heated pool and dock.

It has been recently remodeled and boasts many upgraded amenities as well as water / pool views from almost every room. The back wall of the house is entirely composed of large sliding glass doors with access to the pool and can be opened bringing the outdoors inside. In addition, there is a large sun deck overlooking both the pool and dock, perfect for sunbathing or dining al fresco while watching the sunset light up the water.

The kitchen has Corian countertops, with all new stainless steel appliances, including a gourmet wall oven and cooktop. There is plenty of counter / bar space for buffet style meals and entertaining. In addition, there is a separate dining area overlooking the pool and river.

Right off the kitchen is pub style bar area also overlooking the pool and river which has bar furniture that can used indoors or out. There is even a wine fridge next to the bar where you can bring and store your own vintage or bubbly.

One of the bedrooms is a master suite with its own en suite bath. The large master bath is extremely luxurious with a 4 foot glassed in shower and elegant double vanity. The other two guest bedrooms are spacious and located conveniently adjacent to the guest bath.

The river and pool can be seen from all living areas of the house. The living room has comfy sofas, one of which pulls out for guests not wishing to sleep together. There are 3 Flat Screen TVs, cable, and wifi for indoor entertainment. You can watch the game or entertain in the bar area, while the kids watch movies in the living room, without being interrupted.

The patio area by the pool includes lounge chairs for relaxing as well as wicker chairs and a sitting area for congregating.

There is a large sundeck on the bank of the river with plenty of space for relaxing or entertaining. There is a Kitchen Aid 4 burner stainless steel built in BBQ and sink for some serious grilling while enjoying those amazing views.

The dock has a 12,000 pound lift and can easily store even a very large boat, if you choose to bring or rent one. It has direct river and gulf access within easy reach of local beaches and watering holes on Sanibel Island, Ft. Myers Beach, Pine Island, Captiva, Cabbage Key, Cayo Costa, etc.

About Paul

As the owners, this is not just a rental property to us, but our second home. Our family has been using this property since we purchased it in May as our own private slice of paradise. We have spent countless weekends making family memories that will last our lifetimes. We recently decided to open it up to guests when we are not using it, but to us it is still our home. As such, you will find it is well loved and cared for and is definitely not your average rental property.

Paul purchased this house in 2013

Why Paul chose Cape Coral

The owners are native Floridians and have lived for 40+ years all over the state. We would be happy to provide suggestions for sightseeing and fun both within Cape Coral and beyond to other parts of Florida.

We have two school aged children so we know what it is like to travel as a family and this house is our perfect getaway. We also love to entertain so we know that the house will serve both adults and children equally well to enjoy their vacation.

What makes this house unique

What we most enjoy about this house is dining outdoors overlooking the water at sunset. The kids enjoy fishing off the dock and watching the mullet school around the dock at night. A late afternoon nap in the lounge chairs by the pool, after being out on the boat all day, is the perfect way to recharge for a fun filled evening with friends and family.

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
This house is located right on the Caloosahatchee River in Cape Coral, Beautiful sunrise and sunset views from the patio and great fishing from your own private dock.
Beautiful home, very large pool & patio, centrally located, Minutes to Fort Myer's Beach and many great restaurants.
The house was supplied with everything you need from pool toys to fishing polls, including Cable TV, Wi-Fi, DVD player and DVD movies.
The owner Paul is very responsive if you have any questions and Rich the property manager was very professional and made everything go seamlessly.
Highly recommend and we will be going back.

Excellent Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed for a week at Casa Del Rio at the end of June 2014. We have stayed a variety of places throughout Florida and the Eastern Seaboard and this property was by far our favorite. We have four children ranging in ages from 7 to 13 and the variety of activities this property offers satisfied everyone. The pool was the big hit as was the dock. My boys fished everyday and caught snapper, sheepshead, whiting and a shark. We also saw dolphins, manatee and sharks from the docks.
The home is arranged nicely with close attention paid to little things like kid friendly DVD's, three TV's, fishing poles and chairs and a great selection of tourist information.
The owners are very friendly and have created a web based application that gives a wealth of knowledge on the house and the area including restaurants and shopping locations. Unlike other properties we have stayed at, the owners are very responsive and promptly answered any questions that we had.
I would highly recommend this vacation spot and our family will be back again next year.

Thanks Paul for letting us enjoy your little piece of heaven.

We have stayed in many villas in many countries and have to say this place really is a worth of visiting again! We had a great vacation in this well equipped, beautiful villa! There is a big pool for kids and adults to swim :) Especially the sunrises were so beautiful to watch from the patio. We really recommend this for a relaxing vacation! Many thanks for the owners!

OUTSTANDING! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • 5 of 5
This lovely vacation home completely exceeded our expectations!! Our family (2 adults, 3 children) loved the location (right on the water) and the large pool! The house was much bigger than it seemed in the pictures. The furniture and beds were extremely comfortable and plush. We loved the open floor plan and the amazing views! Get up early and enjoy the gorgeous sunset with your morning coffee!! The location is private yet close to stores, restaurants and beaches. Paul, the owner, went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our trip. He was extremely friendly and helpful. Rich, the property manager, was also very kind and made our check-in and check-out extremely simple. The house was well-stocked and had everything we needed, including beach towels and pool toys. This was the BEST VRBO we have ever rented (and we use VRBO about 8 times a year)! Thank you Paul for making this spring break one of our best!

The house was very clean and up to date. The oversized pool and lanai were perfect. The fishing was great. The location was very good, right off del prado, so it was easy to get places. Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island were close and easy to get to. We ate at Fords Garage and the burgers were HUGE and very good. Dunkin donuts is also right up the road for morning coffee. Sunrise on the river is beautiful. We had a very good time and are looking foreward to going back nexy year!

Cape Coral is centrally located with a short drive or boat ride to a number of beaches and islands on the Gulf Coast. Sanibel and Ft. Myers Beach are just to the Southwest. The artist village of Matlacha and the Pine Island hangouts of Bookelia and St. James City are just west of Cape Coral. There are a number of unique island beaches and famous stops only accessible by boat such as Cayo Costa State park and Cabbage Key (where Jimmy Buffet allegedly wrote Cheeseburger in Paradise).
