Villas offers a balance between the coast and the country

This small suburban enclave, south of bustling Fort Myers and east of the meanders of the Caloosahatchee River, is peppered with more luxurious Villas vacation rentals and family vacation homes than you can rustle a cabbage palm at. With its sprawling shopping malls, manicured driving lanes, and wiggling water channels, it could be the perfect place to enjoy the long, lazy, sizzling days of the Sunshine State in style. You'll be relaxing just a stone's throw from the seashell beaches of the Mexican Gulf islands, and have access to the famous hammocks of the Big Cypress National, which lies just a little to the south.

Excursions to the north, south, east, and west in Villas

Because this is a residential and vacation district at heart, you can expect endless arrays of Southern seafood buffets, Tex-Mex joints, and hearty steakhouses right on the doorstep of those Villas vacation rentals. For the other joys of the region, you might have to head further afield. Fancy shimmering beachfronts with swaying palm trees? Go west. Want wondrous backcountry wetlands and boat tour safaris? Go south. Eager to explore historic homes and American culture? Go north. There's plenty.

Everglades and Thomas Edison meet in Villas

It's just a hop, skip, and a jump over the wetlands to Fort Myers Beach on the edge of Estero Island. From there, you can launch trips across to Sanibel Island and Captiva, where the beaches are strewn with ivory-white seashells and the palm trees cast long shadows over empty sands. If you head to the north instead, you'll be going in the direction of the Edison and Ford Winter Estates, where it's possible to see the laboratories and living quarters of one of America's greatest inventors. Then, to the south, the wilds of the Big Cypress Preserve unfold, offering something altogether more feral.

Warm winter waters await in Villas

If you're looking for Villas vacation rentals close to the Florida beaches, then it might be better to consider coming here in the fall or early winter. That's because the months of October, November, and December are hot and dry but also herald some of the warmest water temperatures along the Mexican Gulf. The springtime, before the onset of the summer storms, is another favorite time to visit and offers less humid days to boot.

Villas: Between the city, the beach, and the Florida swamps

Villas sits sandwiched between the suburban blocks of Fort Myers, the meanders of the Caloosahatchee River, the beaches of the Mexican Gulf, and the endless swathes of verdant wetland that form the heart of the Sunshine State. That means it's a great choice for travelers who want balance white-sand shores with misty bayous, boating excursions with birding trips, and sunbathing with croc spotting. One of the wildest attractions is surely the Florida Everglades, which begin with the Big Cypress Preserve and the endless swamp walking trails just to the south-east.
