As new and one of the Prettiest Villas in NW Cape Coral in a Quiet location on a wide canal. West facing with fabulous sunsets.
Endless local pastimes - World class Beaches, Boating, Fishing, Golf, Tourist attractions and more!
The spacious villa has a spectacular Four Poster Master suite with three more bedrooms and two more full bathrooms. Enjoy the huge HD Widescreen TV with DVD collection while you relax in the reclining Leather sofas.
All four bedrooms have TV/DVD
Our Heated Swimming Pool is uniquely designed with a shallow beach splash area for toddlers and also the main pool ..... meticulously maintained for your enjoyment
Our Villa is one of the few in the Cape fitted with a RO (Reverse osmosis) Water Purification System that produces pure water for drinking and showering. You will really appreciate the water quality..... It's better than bottled water.
Fishing in the area: Whether your fantasy is battling with a huge Silver King Tarpon or battling with monster Hammerhead Sharks Bullsharks or Lemons our area will fulfill the dream. Tarpon usually arrive in April and by May there are massive quantities in Boca Grande and the other passes. The beaches, bridges, sounds, flats etc also hold good numbers of fish.
. Light tackle sharking for blacktips, reefs and hammerheads is great sport and if you like the heavy stuff 1000lb Hammerheads frequent the pases.
Backwater fishing is excellent all year seasonally for various species incl Snook Redfish Trout and Sheephead.
Freshwater fishing in the canals and lakes is good too with Bass and Carp fishing popular.
Boat hire is available locally at the many Marinas nearby by the half day full day or week. Our dock is available for private mooring.
Skippers (Guides) are available for half or full day charters for Tarpon, Fly, Blue, offshore, backwater or shark fishing trip.
Things to do in the area: The great thing about this area is there are things for all the family. Dad can experience world class fishing, Mum world class shopping and for the kids there will never be enough time.
The fishing and boating is outstanding with over 400 miles of canals, various lakes, Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico.
There are various shopping malls, stores and designer outlets - all the great names at great prices.
The sandy beaches are world class and rarely get crowded.
There are various local attractions - Parks, Manatees, Dolphins, watersports, kayak, sports, cinema etc and our area is within easy drive of Florida's other big attractions.
Orlando, Miami and Kennedy Space Centre are approx 3 hours drive. Tampa and Busch gardens is approx 2 hours drive. Sarasota and the Everglades approx an hour drive. All reached on the Interstate motorways.
My wife and I are UK citizens but spend as much time as possible at our home enjoying the fishing and fabulous SW Florida climate.
Jeff and Jackie Jeeves purchased this villa in 2007
We holidayed with friends in Cape Coral and were immediately hooked on the area that has it all. Fab beaches, fishing, golf, shops, restaurants and attractions.
Our beautiful house is maintained in as new condition and the gardens and dock kept immaculate for your maximum enjoyment. \we are in the quiet area of the NW Cape on the Monaink canal with secluded West facing lanai for sunbathing, swimming and beautiful sunsets. Lots of local restaurants and Old Floridian fishing village Matlasha just a few minutes drive. Local wildlife fascinating to watch.... we even have an Osprey nest next to the house. Lots of fish in our canal will entertain you especially at night with the snook light shining on the water. The dock is fitted with a snook light..... Fascinating to watch the shoals of fish at night as they play in the pool of light
If you want a vacation where you can enjoy quiet tranquillity and relaxation close to local restaurants and within easy reach of World class beaches and Designer outlet shopping malls ...... This is perfect for you.

Villa de rÃªve""We spent 10 days in the villa last August, and I have to say it was really fantastic. I used to rent villas in Florida but this one is very very luxurious. When we got in the villa, all the family expererienced the "WOW" effect :-). Furthermore, the local Manager and the Owner are very sympatic and provide an excellent support. Definitely, this is a good choice to spend beautiful time in Florida and enjoy life. +++-----------------Nous avons passÃ© 10 jours dans cette splendide Villa au mois d'AoÃ»t et ce fut rÃ©ellement exceptionel. Nous avons l'habitude de louer des Villas en Floride pour nos vacances, mais celle-ci est vraiment "exceptionnelle". Lorsque nous sommes entrÃ©s dans la Villa la premiÃ¨re fois avec ma famille, nous avons Ã©tÃ© rÃ©ellement impresionnÃ© par la quailitÃ© et le luxe de cette maison. C'est vraiment un excellent choix pour passer de belles vacances en famille, profiter de la piscine, BBQ, etc, par ailleurs le Manager local ainsi que le propriÃ©taire sont des personnes charmantes et qui ont sens du service trÃ¨s dÃ©veloppÃ©s.Conclusion: depechez-vous de rÃ©server, vous allez adorer!!! +++++"Copied from our Homeaway listing
Wow... The pictures of the Villa were amazing on their own... Stepping in to the home was jaw dropping. Impeccably clean with every accommodation you could imagine. Jay, the property manager was wonderful to deal with and very helpful. Very private neighborhood, easy access to everywhere and we made the most of it . Whether it was an evening by the pool, morning coffee with manatees by the canal, or trips into downtown Ft. Myers, Ft Myers Beach, and Matlacha and Bert's Dive bar for their sunset happy hour complete with a steel drum player. We even found a few karaoke bars right there in Cape Coral.
We were down for our son's college baseball tournament in Ft Myers and this was the perfect location to access all the tournament facilities. There were six of us at the villa with more than enough room and privacy...
Besides Bert's which has been a favorite of our's for years, do not miss downtown Ft Myers and...
United Cafe & Bistro... best bloody Mary
Los Cabos Cantina... best margarita
The Lodge (new)... BBQ and pour your own beer wall
Firestone's Sky Bar... awesome view and cocktails...
Thank you so much Jeff and Jackie... We hope to be back again and again.

We got to rent this very nice home for 2 weeks. Very clean and well taken care of. So nice to wake up every morning and have our coffee out by the pool and watch the fish jump. (what are those fish that flop around?) This home has everything to cook all your meals, which we mainly did. We loved the walk in shower. Now I'm spoiled and my husband needs to build me one of those! The other thing that is an added benefit was the water. It was great not to have to lug in water bottles as we have had to in the past when renting other Florida homes. It was great for drinking and showering! The pool is very nice even the splash area was enjoyed by the adults as we had no little kids with us. I'll be honest we were not impressed with Cape Coral beach. Speaking with someone on the beach he told us the water is what is called brackish water. It is quite dark and not very inviting but with that said we mainly spent our beach days at Fort Myers (their water wasn't all that great either). I guess there is something going on with the lake being emptied into it because of all the rain. Something like that anyway. Checked out Sanibel but our favorite was Siesta Key Beach. It's about an hour and a half away but well worth it. The water is absolutely beautiful!
Thanks for a great stay Jeff and Jackie!
Just wondering do you ever get to eat or drink those coconuts in your backyard?
If you've ever wanted to stay somewhere that is beautiful, has all the amenities and more, then this is the place for you! We loved our stay, while there we were able to make use of the pool, do some fishing, play in the game room and enjoy beautiful sunsets. The location was perfect for getting to the beach seeing the surrounding sights and enjoying a slower pace than the hustle and bustle found in the heart of Fort Myers. It was also comforting to know that if we had any problems there was someone who was there to help, thanks for keeping in touch and assuring us you were there to help Jay! A great place at great value, I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area! Thank you Jeff & Jackie - we loved our stay.
The home is BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, Very Comfortable and accommodating in every way!! The pool and water view was a pleasant way to start and end each day!! Close to restaurants and grocery stores and all types of shopping and water activities. Matachla Island is just minutes away and a must to see!!
This was our second year coming to Tamara. We love this area and have a lot of friends nearby. The villa is grand. Lots of room for family and friends to visit. Close to many great restaurants. The house is exactly as described in the ad. Jay and his assistant maintained the property very well and even helped me when a catfish stuck me with a toxic spine. The house was spotless when we arrived. I LOVE the openness of the house. Great for grand, children to play. We used the pool alot. A hotbud would be so nice there We did lots of fishing at the dock and in Matlache at the bridge. That was fun. We enjoyed Carrabbas, Macellis, Ford's Grill. Ragged ASS bar, Joe' Crab Shack, even Golden Corral etc. Spent a day at Fort Myers Beach and loved that. Saw sharks and dolphins there. When to tide went out, my granddaughters loved it.Bicycles would be fun. We plan on bringing our biked in Ferbruary
We recommend this property. We are going back in February. Jackie and Jeff are great to deal with
We stayed at Tamara Villa from 4/4/15 to 5/2/15. Jeffery was very easy to work with and prompt in his replies. He also refunded our deposit promptly. The home was very nice, well decorated, beautiful tile work through out the house but best of all was the pool and patio area off the rear of the house. We all enjoyed the pool and used it every day. If you have young children a gate will be installed to provide peace of mind. Jay maintained the pool while we were there so it was always clean and inviting. We had breakfast every morning on the patio. The house is in a very quiet location and we enjoyed watching fish flop in the canal and listening to the birds sing. There is also an osprey nest very close to the house. The house is on a canal and has a nice dock. Our granddaughter caught catfish which was fun for her. We enjoyed some lovely sunsets too.
The master suite/wing was very nice. The other bedrooms were also comfortable. All beds were queen size except for the kids room which had two twin beds. All bedrooms have ceiling fans as well as the living area and even the outdoor patio has two overhead fans. If you need to do laundry there is a large laundry room off the kitchen area. The house was comfortable for six couples and two children. Lots of parking available on the drive way too.
The house is in North West Cape Coral area. We found we went to the restaurants in Matlacha as more conveniently located to the house. If you want to visit beaches in the area you will be driving 1 to 1.5 hours depending on the traffic and time of the year. There is a man made beach in Cape Coral which was fun for our grandchildren.
Highlights of our stay besides using the pool every day were as follows:
Boat trip with Captain Jack to visit Cabbage Key and Cayo Costa State Park with dolphin and manatee sightings
Bokeelia Dock to watch the dolphins at sunset
Sanibel Island for the day with visit to Ding Darling
Naples for Tropical Botanic Gardens and visit to watch the pelicans fishing at the Naples pier
Deep Sea fishing
Visit to Boca Grande for the day
Visit to Lovers Key State Park
Edison and Ford Winter Estate
enjoying different restaurants in Matlacha some of which are on the canal and have nightly entertainment
Conveniently located to the house:
Sam's Club so bring your card
Publix grocery store
Gyms within five miles so we set up a month long membership using our Silver Sneakers Card
Gas station about one mile from the house
Our area of the Cape is one of the nicest locations in the quiet North West area but within easy reach of the extensive facilities and attractions that Cape Coral is famous for.
Matlasha is a 5 minute drive and here you will find an 'Old Florida' fishing village, home to many brightly colored art galleries, island boutiques, seafood restaurants, and traditional Floridian cottages. local things to do include Fishing, boating golf, beaches,Water park, designer outlets, Manatee park etc, There are two excellent public Golf courses with 18 and 27 holes just 5 minutes away (Budget price rounds and tuition available) and of course the extensive boating and fishing that the area is famous for. Some of the best beaches in the world are a 45 min drive (Fort Myers Captiva Sanibel) and our local beach 9 mile
Fishing is fantastic for 12 months of the year and is infamous for the Tarpon fishing of Boca Grande, World class shark fishing and backwater fishing for Snook, Redfish, and Trout. You can hire a guide or fish from the canals, beaches or bridges. Our very own canal – the Monamink is home to various fish (snapper, sheepshead, stingray, mullet, catfish and tarpon) and is visited by Manatees Ospreys and Eagles
Other Activities: Worlds best Tarpon fishing, Family watersplash, Designer shops, Restaurants
