Surrounded by native landscaping, Villa Makani (mah-kah'-nee) provides water and garden views from inside the villa. Even when it is warm, the breezes of Cape Coral are reminiscent of the Hawaiian trade winds. Makani is Hawaiian for breeze and a reminder of gentle breezes taking away the cares of everyday life.
Villa Makani has everything needed for your stay in Cape Coral. Enjoy nightly barbecues on the covered lanai. The lanai adjoins your private screened pool where you can swim in water set to the perfect temperature. The large, quiet, canal behind the property is your view from the pool area. A private dock includes electricity and running water. The canal provides boat access to the Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico.
Villa Makani is perfect for couples or families wanting to create lasting memories of their escape from daily life.
The entertainment system at Villa Makani features an LG 60” high definition (HD) plasma TV, Blu-Ray DVD, CD player, and surround sound. In addition, speakers are included on the lanai for listening to the radio or CDs while relaxing by the pool.
For those who like to venture out, Villa Makani is in a desirable section of Cape Coral and close to a variety of stores, restaurants, and entertainment, including cruises and fishing charters.
The Villa is near the Veteran’s Memorial (or Midpoint) Bridge to Fort Myers. Not only is Fort Myers the location of the spring training camp of the Boston Red Sox baseball team, it has beaches, restaurants, entertainment, and more. One of the more popular historical attractions is the Edison & Ford Winter Estates, which includes their homes, gardens, lab, and museum.
Sanibel Island is approximately a half hour drive and Captiva Island and Naples are approximately an hour drive from Villa Makani.
In addition, within walking distance of Villa Makani is the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve. There are over 6,000 feet of nature trails, picnic areas, and (seasonal) kayak rentals.
Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve is the second largest preserved green space in Cape Coral. Four Mile Cove / “Eco Park” is a brackish water wetland area where potential wildlife sightings include, among others, eagles, ibis, herons, other wading & migratory birds, and raccoons.

For golfers who enjoy relaxing in award-winning rich natural surroundings with contoured greens, Cape Coral or Fort Myers has the course of your choice.

My husband grew up in Pennsylvania and I lived on Long Island; we live in Pennsylvania now. He works in information technology and I am a nurse. We both like to read. We enjoy being near water while on vacation.
In 2008, we vacationed in Cape Coral and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and dinner by the pool. When we had the opportunity to buy a vacation rental, Cape Coral seemed like the perfect location. The tropical climate reminded us of Hawaii, but it is more accessible from Pennsylvania.
Our house is less than a mile from shopping and restaurants, yet with property bordering the canal, and a pool just outside, our house is perfect for relaxing.
We enjoy the 60” TV and surround-sound stereo system. My husband and I both depend on the Internet, and benefit from the wireless Internet access.
Our house is less than ½ hour from the Ft. Myers airport.
