4 Bed Room, 2 Bath Villa on canal with quick access to the gulf
Surrounded by native tropical landscaping, Villa Makani 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 escape to Cape Coral. Enjoy nightly barbecues on the lanai, which adjoins your screened and heated pool. A private dock with electricity and running water is your access to the large, quiet canal behind the property. It will take about 25 minutes by boat to the Caloosahatchee River and access to the Gulf of Mexico.
Villa Makani is perfect for couples or families wanting to create lasting memories of their vacation from daily life.

About Rolf Hensche
We have been in the hospitality industry all our lives, worked in Hotels, on board Cruise Ships and traveled all over the world. We migrated from Germany to the United States in 1996 and moved after a couple years from Manhattan, New York to Miami, Florida were we presently reside in Coral Gables. We visit Cape Coral frequently with our Harley Davidson Chapter and in 2014 we decided to purchase this beautiful home with Gulf Access. We would like to welcome you to your home away from home and invite you to experience this very special place. We are certain you will be glad you did.
Rolf Hensche purchased this Villa in 2014
Why Rolf Hensche chose Cape Coral
We enjoy boating and the canal behind the property allows for a quick access to the gulf. This is a very safe upscale area, very quiet yet shopping, restaurants and the movie theater are within walking distance. The covered patio invites for a private BBQ and the private pool allows for a refreshing dip during a hot summer day. Fishing from the dock is very relaxing and may provide free dinner. The 4 mile Eco Park is only a short bicycle ride away and Wildlife that may be seen include various herons and egrets, otters, raccoons, woodpeckers, and migratory birds. Infrequent visitors include alligators, osprey, anhingas, cormorants, white ibis and ducks.
What makes this Villa unique
The moment you walk in the front door you know why we fell in love with this place. Words cannot do the property justice. You have to experience a stay at Villa Makani.

A very enjoyable vacation home
We walked in to a very sharp ultra clean vacation home. Three great HD TV's with very comfortable beds. All of the cooking items ( pans, silverware, etc) were of high quality. The pool was heated and had a solar cover so the water was always warm esp in Jan. ...Great to swim in esp after playing golf. Three very nice courses in the area and plenty of very good eating places. Loved grilling and eating out in the patio area,,...all screened in by the pool. The owners were very gracious and immediately handled any problem that came up. They gave us many ideas on where to go and things to do. Thanks for the great two months. We liked the home so much that we booked it for next Jan and Feb. Sorry you will have too look for another place..lol........Cindy and Jim...................also got to meet a lot of nice friendly neighbors in the area as I walked my dogs in the morning and in the evening.
Dear Jim, we very much appreciate your review and we look very much forward welcoming you again next January. Have a fantastic 2017.

Month of relaxation
Thoroughly enjoyed the month of March at this lovely home. Nicely decorated with everything you need. The pool was great. Beds were very comfortable.
Great House with Customer Focused Owners
We had a great time staying at Villa Makani. The owners were very gracious and responsive not just to our needs but to our requests. House was clean and well cared for. The layout was the best we've experienced during our 6-7 previous rentals in Cape Coral. We liked the house so much that we booked it for next year. Can't wait to return.
Thank You very much for your kind comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we are looking forward to welcoming you again next year. One of the reasons for us to purchase Villa Makani was actually the layout and the location.
This rental is well cared for by its owners. When we arrived, we were welcomed by a clean, tastefully decorated home, not to mention the bottle of champagne set in a server complete with two glasses. The kitchen is fully equipped and the pantry had little extras like coffee, tea, and soda. The beds are comfortable and the bedding is like new, essential to a good sleep and a pleasant vacation. Although we didn’t use the pool because of cool February weather, we enjoyed our breakfast poolside in the east facing lanai. The house gives convenient access to all Ft. Myers and Cape Coral attractions, even though it is located on a side street with heavy traffic in the morning and evening.
A very beautiful, spacious and comfortable home!
We had an outstanding stay! The home was very comfortable and nicely appointed. The owners provided very thorough and thoughtful instructions and details to make us feel welcomed and at home. The weather was fantastic and the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area is full of interesting attractions, first class restaurants and great golf. We hope to be back soon! Thank you for providing great accommodation.
Very quiet upscale neighborhood, shopping, dining and eco tourism (Four Mile Eco Park) within short distance from property.
