Overview

Cape Coral House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms including pool bath, sleeps 6

Very private paradise. The yard is fenced for ultimate privacy. There are empty lots on either side and just nature across the canal. The pool and lanai area are huge with over 1100 sq feet of screened sunny splendor. The lanai area has a glass table for 4 with swivel, rocking chairs, two loungers, and 4 comfy cushioned chairs and coffee table. There is a large kitchen window pass through. Also on the deck area are another table for 4 near the gas grill and two other loungers. The spa seats 6 and has 50 jets, and lights. Along with 3 fans and lights, we also have two lighted palm tree lamps on the lanai just for fun! If you prefer to tan without a screen we have a separate tanning pad or the dock area. There is a small boat and electric trolling motor for exploring the canals. Inside we have air conditioning, lighted fans in each bedroom, living room and family room. This home is nicely furnished and decorated. Comfort is key! Reclining seats in the family room with a 50 inch TV.

Comfort is key!: All house furnishings are geared to comfort. You can put your feet up in the family room and really relax! There are plenty of glasses and bowls, utensils and pans. The lanai is large and has several seating areas. The pool is heated and protected from north winds in the winter. The hot tub has 50 jets and changing colored lights. There is an additional deck area for lounging, grilling, eating. There is even an area outside of the screened enclosure for tanning. Because the whole yard is fenced, it is extremely private for swimming and sunning.

The 50 inch TV has HD and includes many music channels. There is unlimited local and long distance calling in the US only. There is a wireless router and work area with view to the lanai and canal.

The dining table has swivel, chairs on casters. They are leather with arms, very comfortable for sitting. You can watch TV from the table if desired. Great for playing family games.

There is a printer for your use and two computer chairs.

Canal: This house faces East on a fresh water canal. It receives lots of sunshine all day from sun up through sun set. Because the house makes a little shade on the pool in the afternoon, it is still bearable on the really hot summer days. You can sit in our screened front porch area to watch the sunsets. There are no houses across the canal so this also contributes to the very private feel of this house. The canal is very close to Shamrock Lake, Lake Saratoga and Lake Kennedy. The little boat is yours to use for exploring the canals and lakes at no extra charge. There is even a fishing pole in the garage you can use.

Convenient Location: Another positive for this house is it's great location. You could walk or ride your bike (basket on bike) to the grocery store. You can ride bikes to two close by parks that have a playground for the kids. Sunsplash Water Park and Mike Greenwell's Family Fun Park are both only a mile away. It is very close to the main roads with restaurants. It is 10 miles to Cape Coral Yacht Club beach, 25 miles to Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach, about 8 miles to Fort Myers and the Edison/Ford Estate. The airport is 21 miles away.

This house is listed as the 22nd least expensive out of 869 listings for Cape Coral. You get a lot of value for your money when renting this house. Many guests return yearly after staying at Sunny Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This reveiw was left in our guest book by Tiffany V. from Lakeland, Florida. I'm glad everthing you needed was right there. Karen



We had the greatest time and everything was even better than we had hoped for! There was nothing we needed that could not be found in the house- what a delight. We all found something to do to relax and with children ages 14 yrs, 12 yrs, 6 1/2 yr and a 2 1/2 year old, I never heard the words: I'm bored- that was wonderful. Thank you Karen and Ken for sharing your private paradise with us. We really hope to come back again.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be above our expectations, having stayed in many villas in Florida we found this to be one of the best. The boat was an added bonus and had loads of fun going up and down the canals, we spotted loads of wildlife in and around the canal, look out for the otters they were so much fun. The master bedroom and en-suite were very comfortable, and we spent a lot of time in the hot tub. Sanibel and Pine Island are a must see, and also try the pizza place on Hancock bridge Blvd. called I Ragazzi Pizza, they are the most welcoming people, and the food is delicious.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind comments. We have tried to provide nice amenities for our guests. If we feel the need for something when we are there, we assume our guests would probably also like to have the same things. . I agree that it is a nice canal system with close access to the Shamrock Lakes, Saratoga, Kennedy and Alhambra Lakes. I thought that otter was going to dive into the boat the first time we met him while exploring! And as you mentioned it is convenient to be not so far from Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, Pine Island - the Matlacha Bridge, which I've heard is the busiest fishing bridge in Florida! Plus it is close and convenient to pizza, videos, grocery storres, pharmacies and fast food yet with the fence and trees you still have a set apart, private feeling when outside at the house. The hot tub is a perfect ending for the many perfect days in Florida! I hope you will come back again some time!

Home away

  • 5 of 5

2nd year of renting this home. We loved it and it was so nice to know we were coming back here!

Really feel completely at home. Hot tub is new. All beds are comfortable. Many places the master is nice but not the others

We will come again.. Iragazzi Pizza is great and they deliver.

Just like home! Fantastic place to unwind!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend you call and book this home away from home. This home is large, we enjoyed the pool and spa. Everything was clean and well maintained. The owner had great service and even brought over a new BBQ grill. There are great restaurants within a 10 minute drive, banks, grocery stores, all very convenient yet the home is a private retreat. You wont regret staying here.

Beautiful and Comfortable Tropical Setting & Home

  • 5 of 5

WOW, what a comfortable home away from home, we hated to leave!! Everything is here to help you relax. The pool and spa were great! Plenty of towels, bedding, fully stocked kitchen, even a brand new BBQ grill. There is Wi fi and a printer with paper, the owners have thought of everything, even a tv in every room!! The home was clean and well maintained, we would highly recommend this home to family and friends. Restaurants, grocery stores and banks were within a five minute drive, very convenient. Book quickly and check it all out for yourselves, we are glad we did!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

First time I used HomeAway website and I was Lucky enough to find this house. The owners are awsome, the property is perfectly clean and well maintained. The boat at our disposal was a real plus for the kids. Everything needed was on site. Too bad this year I didn't book in Advanced so in July 2015 the place is not available anymore. Hopefully next year... Don't look any further. This is THE place to be for nice vacations.

Perfect size, very comfortable, has everything

  • 4 of 5

We are in our 60s and used to live in Cape Coral, so we were looking for a home away from home. Sunny Paradise was perfect. Had all the amenities. Especially liked the TV s in bedrooms, beach towels, beach chairs and telephone for when cells were being charged, and wifi with desk for computer.. Master has a memory foam mattress and toppers in other bedrooms. Convient to everything. Kitchen is a bit tired, sink and faucet could use an update. Bathrooms were large and my husband liked the large garage for his showcar. Since

We had lived here before we knew where we wanted to eat. Don't miss Mel's Diner on Pine Island Rd. And Papa Joe's on Cape Pkwy for Pizza/Italian. Also Iguana Mias for mexican.

We come every year a will definitely stay here again.
