SUN-DRENCHED POOL VILLA ON CANAL WITH QUICK SAILBOAT ACCESS TO GULF OF MEXICO

Cape Coral Villa Rental Photos and Description

You plan a golf trip or wish to explore the attractions of Florida? You love boating and fishing, or prefer the tranquillity of secluded beaches and the privacy of your own pool? Or do you want to have it all: Villa Sunset Delight is the vacation place to be. Location and setting of this 3-bedroom/2-bathroom villa, remodelled and newly furnished in summer of 2008, provide for a maximum of six guests in three bedrooms all amenities and comfort for a relaxing stay on app. 1800 sqft interior living space and app. 1200 sqft lanai and pool area. The screened, heated pool and the lanai have southern and western exposure - sun flooded all day. A large covered patio area offers shade. Enjoy fabulous sunsets both from the lanai and the large U-shaped boat dock with tiki hut. The villa is built on a 10,000 sqft lot in the desirable SW area of Cape Coral alongside a canal with quick sailboat access to the Gulf of Mexico (no bridges or locks). More info and photos at www.villasunsetdelight.de

Environment:: Villa Sunset Delight is built on a 10,000 sqft lot alongside a canal providing quick and direct boat access to the Gulf of Mexico (no bridges, no locks). Thus, it is also perfectly located in case you intend to rent or bring a boat. App. 1,800 sqft interior living space and about 1,200 sqft screened lanai and pool area (250 sqft covered) as well as the yard with tropical trees and plants promise a relaxing atmosphere, whether you prefer indoor or outdoor living. The villa is located on a cul-de-sac in a quiet residential area in desirable SW Cape Coral. Even so, you will find several supermarkets like Publix or Walmart Neighborhood Market (24/7), and various shops and waterfront restaurants in Cape Harbour Marina within 5 minutes driving time. Numerous golf courses, the famous beaches of Sanibel Island (secluded) and Ft. Myers Beach (lively) as well as a number of huge shopping malls and outlet centers are just a short car ride away.

Amenities:: A solar/electric heater unit provides a comfortable pool temperature all year round. In the lanai/pool area, enclosed by a screened pool cage, an outdoor shower ensures your comfort after taking a plunge in the pool or a sunbath on one of the six loungers. One bathroom is directly accessible from the pool area. The gas barbecue invites you to prepare your meals outside and to enjoy them at the large table for six under the covered patio area, where a ceiling fan offers a fresh breeze. From the huge boat dock with tiki hut you may watch fabulous sunsets, and - if you are lucky - a dolphin or manatee travelling through the canal. The garden is full of palm trees, tropical bushes and an orange tree (use the juicer). In the two-car garage with remote control door opener we have available for your excursions beach chairs, a beach umbrella, sand toys, coolers, and 2 bicycles. We are convinced you will enjoy your stay at Villa Sunset Delight. We will gladly answer any additional questions.

Returned for a 4th time

  • 5 of 5
We have made it a tradition by now to return to lovely Villa Sunset Delight over Thanksgiving and our stay was perfect again. House and garden are always kept in perfect condition and we really feel like at home. As always, the kids loved the pool, harvesting some of the bananas and oranges in the backyard and kayaking in nearby Malacha or Sanibel...do not miss a kayak tour through Ding Darling Sanctuary on Sanibel! We will definitely be back this November.

3rd Stay a Charm

  • 5 of 5
This was our third stay at Villa Sunset Delight and once again it was a fabulous two months. We hated to leave, but we have reserved the villa again for 2 1/2 months next year. We have stayed in many places in Florida, but Cape Coral is our favorite place and this villa is a gem. There are so many places to go and things to do... shelling on Sanibel Island, the art community on Matlacha, fishing on a Charter. This year we took a water ferry from Tarpon Point Marina to Fort Meyers Beach - so much easier than driving in traffic.

The villa is so well appointed you may not want to leave. The pool is lovely and very well maintained. We fished off the dock a few short steps away from the lanai and enjoyed a glass of wine while sitting under the Tiki hut. We watched the boats go by and saw dolphins and a manatee in the canal again this year. The yard is beautifully landscaped and very well maintained by an excellent gardener.

We can not say enough about the owners. They take such pride in their Villa and insure that everything is in perfect condition. They go to great lengths to make sure your stay is very enjoyable. So looking forward to next years stay.

Back again for a delightfull 2 month stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Villa Sunset Delight and once again it was a fabulous two months. We hated to leave, but we have reserved the villa again for two months next year. We have stayed in many places in Florida, but Cape Coral is our favorite place and this villa is a gem. There are so many places to go and things to do... shelling on Sanibel Island, the art community on Matlacha and Key West is only 3 1/2 hours away by ferry. This year we enjoyed an airboat ride in the Everglades.

The villa is so well appointed you may not want to leave. The pool is lovely and very well maintained. We fished off the dock a few short steps away from the lanai and enjoyed a glass of wine while sitting under the Tiki hut. We watched the boats go by and saw dolphins and a manatee in the canal again this year. The oranges we picked from the newly planted tree were delicious and the huge lemons found their way into seafood dishes and cocktails. The yard is beautifully landscaped and very well maintained by an excellent gardener.

We can not say enough about the owners. They take such pride in their Villa and insure that everything is in perfect condition. They go to great lengths to make sure your stay is very enjoyable. So looking forward to next years stay.

Perfect Return Visit

  • 5 of 5
We experienced our second perfect stay at Villa Sunset Delight and again enjoyed the wonderful combination of relaxation by the pool and exploration of the area by car, bike and boat. The house is so comfortable and in top notch condition that we decided to stay 2 weeks this time. We are already looking forward to returning in 2011.

Delightfull Villa

  • 5 of 5
Villa Sunset Delight has been nicely remodeled and well maintained. The landscaping is beautiful in spite of a very severe winter, and includes citrus trees along with the palms and many other plants.
The lanai and pool area are very comfortable which make the Villa that much more enjoyable. The heated pool is very well maintained and the shallow area at one end makes it accomodating for small children.
This Villa is on a gulf access canal in a quiet nieghborhood with friendly nieghbors on both sides.
Fishing in the canal - you may catch mangrove snapper and pompano along with catfish (throw the catfish back).
We saw a manatee in the canal one day and a dolphin was seen in the canal on another day.
The owners are very responsive to any questions or needs and have an excellent local property manager to help. The property is very neat and well supplied for all your needs.
The Villa's location in SW Cape Coral is close enough to Cape Coral for easy access to the restaurants and shops, but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet.The owners provide a folder with excellent restaurant, shopping, and local attractions. We found their recommendations spot on!! .
We would recommend this Villa to anyone as a place to enjoy the sun.

Beautiful Week Over Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week with our two children and one of our grandparents at Sunset Delight over Thanksgiving. We couldn't have wished for a better house rental! We have done several house rentals and home exchanges in Florida, South Carolina, Maine, Vermont etc. and this turned out to be on top of the list. The house is very spacious, beautifully appointed and all furnishings and appliances look brand new. We felt immediately at home with a generous open concept combining a very comfortable living room, a spacious dining area and a super tidy and upscale kitchen overlooking the pool area. All three bedrooms are spacious with ample closet space and each equipped with a flat panel TV. The master bedroom with its beautifully designed private bathroom is cleverly separated from the other two bedrooms and provided great privacy.

We also loved the pool area which provides for great outdoor living space with a large table and several comfortable deck chairs. Our kids spent hours at a time in the spacious pool which looked brand new and squeaky clean. The lanai is just a few steps away from the canal and the owners’ dock area right behind the house, where we spent many hours enjoying the sunset under a large Tiki-like canopy.

The house has a meticulously cared for grass and garden area with a number of palm and citrus trees with oranges and limes just about to ripen when we were there.

The owners equipped the house with such attention to detail which left absolutely nothing to be desired: Cable TV, DVD player with a great selection of DVDs, WI-FI, a printer, a stereo unit with an iPod dock, a brand new Weber grill, every conceivable kitchen utensil, a huge selection of local travel books, a couple of mountain bikes, pool toys galore, beach chairs and towels etc. (down to the supplies of shampoo, toothpaste and soap samplers in each bathroom). The owners also provided detailed information about the house and hugely helpful recommendations on what to do, where to shop and where to eat.

The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood surrounded by canals and we loved exploring the area by bike. A couple of supermarkets are just a short car ride away. The location is a great hub for many explorations up and down the coast and we found the owners’ very extensive list of recommendations re: beaches, shops, and excursions immensly helpful.

We have already booked Villa Sunset Delight for 2010 and can't wait!

Cape Coral, a residential town and vacation destination in SW Florida built on a vast stretch of land, gains its specific flair from the immediate vicinity to the Gulf of Mexico, but also from a canal system meandering for more than 400 miles through most parts of the city - the Venice of Florida. Numerous homes - including Villa Sunset Delight - are situated alongside the canals, offering a special atmosphere and a waterway access to the Gulf with its secluded beaches and offshore islands. A dream experience not only for adults, but also for the young. However, Cape Coral is also the ideal homeport for golf enthusiasts, for nature lovers (nature preserves even located within city limits), and for all those who wish to explore other attractions in Florida. Miami and Orlando, for example, may be reached by car in less than 3 hrs, the western entrance to the Everglades in about 1.5 hrs. Ft. Myers airport (just 20 miles away) is served from all major US airports several times each day.

Other Activities: motor boating, jet skiing, canoeing, sports fishing

Golf: SW Florida is well known for numerous public and semi-public golf courses attractive to all handicap levels and playable against green fee. Even if you stay for several weeks, you hardly need to play the same course twice (unless you want to). Playing golf ourselves, we have prepared a little brochure with useful information on some of the courses in the area including location, directions, seasonal green fees, and our - thus very subjective - impressions. Upon request, we will provide you with the brochure prior to your arrival.
