Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) NEW SALT WATER POOL SYSTEM

This is a very comfortable recently renovated single-family home on a direct Gulf access, sailboat-access canal that is less than 10 minutes to the Caloosahatchee River and less than 1/2 hour to the Gulf of Mexico.

We just installed a salt water system for the pool. No more chlorine!

WE HAVE JUST FINISHED A COMPLETE INTERIOR RENOVATION. NEW MASTER BATH INCLUDING FLOOR AND WALL TILE, TUB, VANITY, MASTER BEDROOM, WALK IN CLOSET, DINING ROOM, FORMAL LIVING ROOM, KITCHEN INCLUDING NEW CABINETS AND GRANITE COUNTERTOPS, NEW HARDWOOD FLOORS, NEW WALL TO WALL CARPET IN THE MASTER, NEW DOORS AND TRIM, FRESH PAINT, ETC.

The home features a master bedroom with a king sized bed, A new LED Smart tv, walk-in closet with a recently renovated private bath featuring a tub and shower. One guest bedroom has a king sized bed. The second guest bedroom has a new queen sized bed with a large walk-in closet. Across the hall from the second guest bedroom is a recently renovated bathroom with a large shower which is accessible to/from the screened in lanai/pool area for your convenience.

The NEW full service kitchen is bright and has a double window which fully opens (6') out to the lanai and outdoor dining area. IT FEATURES NEW CABINETS, NEW GRANITE COUNTERTOPS AND TILE. It has a garbage disposal and flitered water dispenser, dishwasher as well as the usual appliances and a new stove and cooktop. The kitchen is open to the den and separated from it by an eat-in counter with two stools. The dining room off the kitchen has a wonderful view of the lanai, pool area and canal through double-opening, glass doors. It features a beautiful Travertine marble dining table for six.

The den is furnished with beautiful leather sofas, one full sized and big enough to sleep an adult and the other slightly smaller but very comfortable for two people. The entertainment center is in the den and has a NEW LED SMART TV with a DVD player and VHS player as well as a stereo with surround sound.

The dining room is directly off the kitchen with a large Travertine Marble table and six comfortable chairs all on a beautiful marble tiled floor.

The very large living room with new hardwood floors is a great room for entertaining with a matching overstuffed and extremely comfortable couch, love seat and chair with an ottoman. The elegant side tables are matching Travertine marble bases with glass tops. Some of the furniture is antique and very well maintained. Most of the artworks are originals or signed prints.

The laundry room is down a hallway separated by a pocket door from the den and has an entry to the garage and features a full-sized washer and dryer as well as many cabinets for storage. This is also the computer station with a printer. We also have upgraded the tv service and have 5G hi speed Wi-Fi.

The house has a two-car garage with off-street parking for two more cars in the driveway. There are many tools and a work bench area in the garage along with three bikes one of which has a child seat on the back of it.

The lanai/pool area is quite large with an oversized pool and features a six person spa as well as lounge chairs, chaise lounges, a glass topped table with six chairs with cushions, three stools at the kitchen access bar and a new stainless propane grill. All the screens on the screen house surrounding the lanai as well as all of the screen doors have just been replaced.

There is a path from the door of the screen structure that leads to the waterfront with more chairs and chaise lounges on another patio, a wooden dock area, a covered boat lift and jet ski lift. It even has a crab trap and there are fishing poles in the garage for your use. The landscaping is beautiful with many exotic plant varieties including bananas, lemons, limes and oranges and well as a small herb garden. You can catch your dinner, season it and make a daiquiri ... just add rum!

Great shopping and dining are close by. It is near the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve where you can hike and rent kayaks. Great for bird and wildlife watching. There is a new park at the entrance of our canal from the Caloosahatchee River where you can launch a boat, picnic and relax.

This part of Cape Coral is fun, unpretentious and friendly, and this is why we love it and think you will too.

Keywords: relaxing, easy, quiet, fun, water, pool, spa, hot tub, warm, close, beautiful, sunsets, beaches, swimming, boating, shelling, beach-combing.

Way too much to do and mention here, so just relax and enjoy it all!

About Tom and/or Genie Wiss

We live on beautiful Lake Hopatcong in northwestern New Jersey and love the boating life including sailboat racing, antique wooden boats, canoeing and kayaking. Tom is a Landscape Architect and Genie is a Land Use Administrator. We have three grown daughters and one grandson and one granddaughter. We bought this home in the hope that we could use it more when we retire. The home is so comfortable and we feel our family will enjoy visiting us down here because there is something for EVERYONE here and everything is so convenient.

Tom and/or Genie Wiss purchased this villa in 2009

Why Tom and/or Genie Wiss chose Cape Coral

We thought the neighborhood was very friendly and safe. The canal ride to the river is short and is deep so you won't hit bottom and some of the canal is a park and undeveloped. There is a lot of shopping close by. The home is far enough away from the main drag so there is no traffic noise and the canal is quiet. A hospital is very close by. With no neighbors on the adjoining lots, outdoor space is ample and privacy ensured. We like that it is close to Fort Myers and the airport to pick up visitors. Also, Fort Meyers is a really neat town with upscale restaurants and lots of cultural events. The wonderful beaches of Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach are only a short drive or boat ride away. The Cape Coral farmers market is a great place on Saturday mornings during the winter months.

What makes this villa unique

Warm temperatures, beautiful weather, a beautiful large pool, large spa, spectacular sunsets, great access to boating and sailing, convenient bargain shopping and great dining. Directly across and along the river are fabulous mansions we enjoy viewing from our boat. We drive to beaches both pristine and commercial, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Fort Myers Beach, Naples, the Planetarium and Aquarium, miniature golf and Pine Island that reminded us of the British Virgin Islands. There is also the great fishing of Charlotte Harbor very nearby.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We felt really at home from the minute we stepped in the door. There was everything you could want & more - very well equipped. We enjoyed exploring the area & recharging our batteries by the fab pool. There were plenty of places to eat nearby or supermarkets if you wanted to self catering. We loved watching the iguanas basking on the dockside & the fish jump in the canal. The owners were very helpful & answered any questions promptly. Thank you for sharing your property with us.

Home away from home. Perfection.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a week and loved every second of it. Anything you need to feel at home was there. The house was beautiful, super clean, the sheets were so soft and the beds were very comfortable. Mr. Wiss was available any time. We enjoyed the ducks that came to hang out on the deck, and seeing the iguana family. Convient to stores and places to eat. We would definitely stay again. Thank you so much Mr. And Mrs. Wiss.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

After just 3 days into our 2 month stay at Wisspering Palms we contacted Tom and Genie to reserve the house for next year. The house was perfect with everything you would need. Extremely quiet neighborhood for walks or runs. Then the pool...what a pool! Large enough to swim laps or just floating and enjoying the sun. Although beaches were close by, we spent our days bicycling looking for burrowing owls, enjoying the pool and watching the boats on the canal. We had fresh lemons, oranges and even bananas from the trees in the yard. The only negative part of our 2 month stay was when we had to leave to head home. We will miss the iguana family that lived in the yard. Tom suggested some restaurants and we found several others with outstanding food. We highly recommend Wisspering Palms. Thank you Tom and Genie for our best vacation ever! We look forward to our stay next year and hopefully many more to come.

Nice home , Clean BUT Owner refuses to send Security Deposit back

  • 2 of 5

This is the Third home I have rented in Cape Coral. The home was clean and comfortable but needs some upgrading .Everything was second class including dishes bought at a flea market and a scattering of utensils from same

The Hot Tub had HUGE amounts of chlorine in it making it virtually unusable.

My main issue is that our contract included the Security Deposit which the owner refuses to return and in fact quit communicating altogether .

My lawyer read over the contract and agreed I was due the return of the Security Deposit and still no answer back. We would have settled for half but did not get that chance. Tom quit communicating completely !!!

After this experience I would book elsewhere and read reviews CAREFULLY !! There are much nicer homes available in Cape Coral. The Hot Tub was a major attraction which turned out to be a chlorine choking hazard . I own a Hot Tub and this unit was extremely poorly and dangerously maintained .

Tom was certainly NOT READING our contract carefully

Compared to the other 5 Star homes I have rented this one was a 3-4 star but dropped to 2 when the owner quit communicating

Lesson learned---DO NOT DEAL DIRECT USE VRBO FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION !!

Owner's Response: Sorry you don't understand contracts Dale. You got a great deal and then you bring an extra guest with you for which you were not charged anything extra. There is no chlorine in the spa ever. If you actually know anything about spas, you would know that it is bromine and all you have to do is let it run uncovered for a while. It had been covered for quite some time before you arrived. And really, fine china, new glassware and more utensils and appliances than most homes have. Sorry it did not have a Kuereg coffee maker as you asked for. We don't drink coffee. You really did not expect me to continue our discussions after you threatened me, did you? And now you write a scathing and untrue review just to try to get even? Very petty of you Dale. Now I'm sorry I wrote a good review of you. Then I got this response from the family that is in the house just after you- "It didn't take us long to realize that we enjoy being here in Cape Coral. Your vacation home is beautiful and more than we expected. With that said, we would like to know if this house is available for March and April of 2018. If so, we would like to secure it for those two months. If it is available, let us know how we should proceed. PS We enjoyed meeting you the Wednesday. Donna and Doug ..."

Our beautiful recently renovated home is very close to Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, the bohemian Pine Island and Fort Myers Beach all of which are great day trips with wonderful scenery, great beaches, delicious restaurants, fishing from land or sea and some of the best beach combing in the United States. It is very close to shopping of all kinds yet far enouph away that there is no traffic and is extremely relaxing. Biking to the local park or the Ecological Preserve is another fun yet short trip. Rent a boat from the local boat livery and explore the canals, the Calosahachee River or go out to the Gulf or go Tarpon fishing in Pine Island Sound.

So much to do, but relaxing by the pool or in the spa or at the patio at the waterfront is what we hear the most from or guests.

Our Home- it's a great place to go.
