Cape Coral House Rental Photos and Description

Step out your back door to explore Cape Coral's beautiful waterways

Villa Foster in Cape Coral, Florida is a beautiful rental home in a peaceful, tropical setting. It comes with all the amenities that you could want for your perfect holiday, including your own boat! The west-facing, spacious pool deck / lanai is perfect for viewing the evening sunset and the late day sun makes swimming in your heated pool more enjoyable. Take boat rides on the 21 ft. Hurricane Fun Deck 201 or, if you choose, don't leave. Stay poolside, where you can swim, work on your tan, read a book or grill on your barbeque. Or, if you prefer, just walk down to your dock. There you can fish or just relax under the tiki-hut with a cocktail, feeling the cool breezes while keeping an eye out to view dolphins and manatees that occasionally swim by. The dock extends out 30 feet over the canal and it will make you feel like you are floating on the water. Villa Foster's local, attentive property management keeps everything running smooth. The comfort, ease, and beauty of staying at Villa Foster is sure to make your vacation perfectly special.

The Boat: The property's Hurricane Fun Deck 201 is perfect for cruising the canals, spending a day on the river or visiting one of the many beaches nearby. With canal access from the home's private boat dock, you can reach the Caloosahatchee River in just one minute and the Gulf of Mexico in just over 30 minutes. And there is nothing to compare with boating to one of the nearby restaurants or marinas for lunch or diner - some as close as 20 minutes away. Comfortable seating for six, this is a great boat for cruising local waters or catching fish for your dinner. Designed exclusively for a single engine - with the Yamaha 115 hp, this boat truly does it all.

The Pool: Nothing about the specifications of our pool can convey how much FUN it is. But I’ll start with the specifications anyhow:

-Our pool is 14 feet by 32 feet (approximately 4.6 meters by 10.3 meters).

-It has an electric heater and thermal pool cover for use during the cooler months (mid-November to mid-April).

-It faces west for maximum sun exposure and great sunsets. (As you look at Cape Coral, Florida rentals make sure you ask which direction the pool faces! You will be VERY unhappy with a north or east facing pool which would be in shadow most of the day.)

Hmmm . . . everything about having a pool in the back yard seems self-evident to me now . . . but I remember how shockingly great it was during our first visit. I couldn’t get over the fun of going swimming before breakfast. My boys LIVED in the pool when we weren’t out on the boat. It was fabulous. They were exhausted at the end of every day then woke up asking for the pool again first thing the next morning.

Miscellaneous: FISHING:

There are a couple of poles and some fishing tackle at the Villa Foster for the use of our guests. You can even catch fish right off of the back dock if you like. If you are more serious about the sport, you should bring your own gear and ask our check out captain for guidance, because there is some great fishing to be had in Cape Coral.

GETTING AROUND IN CAPE CORAL:

A rental car is recommended. Cape Coral is the largest city in Florida (land wise) and has over 400 miles of canals. This means that getting around on foot or by bike is not practical.

AREA AIRPORTS:

The closest airport is the Fort Myers airport (airport code RSW). This is approximately 30 minutes away from Villa Foster. Other Florida airports our guests have used include Tampa (TPA), Miami (MIA) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL). One word of caution, if you rent a car from the Miami airport, get detailed directions on how to return it as the signage for rental car returns is MISERABLE.

I am a professional business man who lives in New York. In my day to day job, I take pride in making sure that my customers are satisfied with the quality of products and the level of service that they receive from me. This is the attitude that I bring to Villa Foster. Combine this with my desire to make Villa Foster the kind of place where my family would like to vacation and retire to one day, and I believe that this is what makes Villa Foster so special.

VERY DISAPPOINTING :)

  • 5 of 5
VERY DISAPPOINTING (to have to go hope) we stayed here for two weeks and had a wonderful time the Villa has everything you need, we must have wasted 15 kg on luggage allowance for soaps,shower gels etc. it was all hear and good quality!. When we first arrived we had a couple of issues! but they where dealt with immediately, both Dino (the owner a great Guy) and the property mgr resolved every issue straight away,we spent most of our time out on the boat visiting the local islands and having lunch in some of the many restaurants on the water front, the pool area is a lovely place to sit and have dinner after a long day out. the kitchen is well equipped with everything you need . the garage has all the other stuff you need there is about 5 fishing poles and tackle, cool boxes, bait buckets and a couple of bikes (if your up to it).to sum up it was one of the most relaxing and comfortable vacation we have ever had and we look forward to returning.

AMAZING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived we felt at home! The home is so inviting, and offers amenities beyond the norm. We have rented cottages, condos and homes over the years, and this was by far the best experience we have had. We loved the boat, and managed to use it every day to do some touring. Captain Ron had given us great instructions and assistance in navigating the river. The location is great - easy to drive or boat to so many places - we managed to tour Sanibel Island, catch a ball game in Port Charlotte, and boated to and docked at Fort Myers Beach . We loved relaxing outdoors on the lanai, swimming in the pool, and just enjoying the atmosphere and sunshine. We will definitely be back.

"A WEEK IN PARADISE!"

"A week in Paradise!"
  • 5 of 5
The moment we pulled in the driveway at Villa Foster, I suspected we had made the right choice. The peaceful neighborhood and the lush landscaping gives the place a tropical feel. As I approached the home I could feel the warm breeze melting the northern winter blues. Upon entering the home, my suspicion was confirmed - we had chosen wisely. It was literally jaw-dropping - sparkling clean and just so inviting. The pictures cannot capture the ambiance that embraces you when you enter this home. After touring the home, we both had ear-to-ear grins. However, the best was yet to come. When we opened the sliding doors and felt the warm breeze and heard the rustling palms, we knew we had found a piece of heaven! But there was still more - the tiki hut and dock area - which provides a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the wonderful canal views. The outdoor area became the focal point of our time spent at Villa Foster and we always opened the large sliding doors to "bring the outdoors in."
Did I mention the boat? It was my toy for the rest of the week. Capt. Rick is a great guy and gave me the instruction I needed to explore the area with confidence. The fishing was incredible! The first day I fished under the Midpoint Bridge (a short boat ride from the home) and caught speckled trout, sand trout, feisty jack crevalle and mangrove snapper and the highlight of my trip - a 40 inch, 30 lb. black drum! All this before lunch!
Early every morning I would sneak out, hop in the boat and go fishing. Meanwhile, my wife would go for a jog or a bike ride and relax by the pool. Then I would come back in and pick her up so she could sunbathe on the boat while I continued fishing. Lucky me!
We enjoyed most of our meals on the shaded patio, by the pool, where the atmosphere was much better than any restaurant could provide... and much less expensive! The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could ask for and shopping is convenient on nearby Del Prado Blvd.
The two car garage had two bikes, fishing rods, bait buckets, coolers, etc. The washer and drier is a big plus - no need to pack a lot of clothing.
Dino, the owner of Villa Foster, was a pleasure to deal with. He answered all my inquiries immediately and was very helpful.
Needless to say, the week went by way to quickly and we did not want to leave. I can honestly say that this was one of our best vacations ever! I highly recommend Villa Foster for a vacation you will never forget!

GREAT HOLIDAY,LOVED THE BOATING.

  • 3 of 5
House as description, clean and had all we needed boat was great.Captain Rick was very informative and gave us great instruction . New tiki hut and pier were great. Kitchen just needed more baking tools Like pizza trays and muffin tins. As we were here over Christmas joined in the spirit and bought lights to trim up and be festive.would have been great to arrive and find these things but hey can't have everything.it was unfortunate that the quiet was interrupted everyday from 8am till5pm by drilling only Christmas Day was quiet but realise we were in an estate and normal life goes on around you.we went out as often as possible on the boat and saw lots of dolphins.(the tide was low in the mornings of the first week too low to get the boat off the lift)so make the most of good weather and tides.
Bedding needs an upgrade to give wow factor to go with expectations of the price of the house.and extra bedding required. Cleaning is a separate issue ask about how they want the house to be left so as not to incur extra costs,rental was enough!

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE IN A GREAT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
This was our third time at this house and once again we had a fabulous vacation. The house is always spotless and inviting from the moment you walk in the door. The improvements that the owner has made over these last three visits are really impressive. We did not rent the boat this year but in the past we had a lot of fun out on the water. The location is close to many of the area attractions and restaurants that we enjoy. We are already looking forward to our next vacation at this lovely home. Ron & Arlene

Owner's Response: Hi Ron and Arlene,

Thank you for your kind words. We try to make Villa Foster the kind of vacation destination that my wife and I want for ourselves. It makes us happy when others enjoy themselves enough to want to return. And... although we hope that you will keep returning to Villa Foster, soon we will have another option available to our guests. We have recently purchased a 2 bedroom villa with a private pool in St. Croix. It is Villa Madeleine's - Blue Thalassa (unit # 36). Stay tuned!

Thanks again,
Dino & Patti

Cape Coral, Florida is paradise for boaters and all those who love the water. The convenience of a boat behind this vacation rental cannot be minimized. You can take trips to one of the many beaches in the area, to restaurants and bars, or just go fishing. While in your villa, there is nothing like looking out any rear-facing door or window onto the beautiful lanai and seeing the pool and the peaceful canal. Furthermore, the tiki-hut and dock seating offer another dimension to your Villa Foster experience. Take your morning coffee or your evening cocktails down to the dock and enjoy relaxing sea breezes as you appear to float along the water. Occasionally, a dolphin or a manatee will happen to swim by, so pay attention for this special treat. From the moment you wake up to when you go to bed at night, the tranquility of the water and sun is an experience beyond compare.

Other Activities: The property has two adult bicycles.
