When you Demand Luxury ! You will Enjoy this Beautiful Waterfront Home 2,700 square foot. Waterfront Villa.
This home demands all the best furnishings and comforts of a King & Queen. You will enjoy the large screened in heated pool & spa that will help you relax from a tough year at work. There is a private wrap-around 13 k, Direct Gulf Access boat lift for your Boat Rental (or your own Boat if coming by water). The home is on a dead end Cul-de-sac street, so there is no traffic to distract you. Enjoy the fully equipped Kitchen, and outside grill for all you families needs. Just bring your clothes ... everything is supplied at the home.
Cape Coral is famous for its' amount of waterways. Almost every street is on water and in fact Cape Coral has more waterways than the famous city of Venice, Italy. Because of the abundance of water, Cape Coral is a favorite with boaters and keen fishermen. The private dock is large enough that you can bring your own boat or rent on near by.
Alternatively you could easily hire one and enjoy exploring the many beautiful islands, restaurants and beaches, only accessible by boat. If you decide to leave your canal-side paradise and explore further afield, a short drive away are the magnificent beaches of Fort Myers, and the barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva, world famous for its' fine shelling and Ding Darling Nature Reserve. How about a stroll along Lover's Key, a state park with numerous private sandy bays just waiting to be discovered. Or visit Naples for its' upscale shopping and restaurant district.
I believe that this Luxury Waterfront Villa at Cape Coral is an excellent destination home for those wishing to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle Florida is famous for.
4 adults and 3 children shared this home for a week. It was more than comfortable for our group. The home is laid out very nicely and the beds were all very comfortable with having newer mattresses. We enjoyed having the pool and the views outside are beautiful. We even saw a dolphin in the canal one morning. The house is stocked pretty well with towels, bedding, and kitchen ware.
Upon pulling into the driveway we were a little disappointed. The home is beautiful, but not maintained very well. There are weeds growing out of the driveway and in the landscaping. The bushes haven't been trimmed in a while and there were huge cob webs hanging in the entry way. The pool area also had weeds growing in the pavers. Sand is coming up through the pavers so you're constantly dragging that into the pool and the house. The back yard and dock area were also in need of some weeding. The grill is in terrible shape. One wheel is broken off so it's propped up with a paver. And although I don't think it's the fault of the owner, we were a little disappointed too that we had to wash and scrub almost everything in the kitchen before we used it. The house was pretty clean upon arrival.
I really don't like to complain, and all 7 of us agree that it really was an ok place to stay. The things that counted were nice. We enjoyed staying here, but didn't feel that the house lived up to its description or pictures. Chris was easy to work with too. He was timely on answering questions.
We arrived with the Air Conditioning set to 85 degrees. The temperature in the house never went below 80 degrees until the next morning. One bad nights sleep. Then on day 3 of our week, the AC in the Master went out. It was the 4th of July weekend. So we had 84-83 degrees for two nights. I slept on the couch. Even with the AC "fixed" the house was 78 degrees each day. It would not cool until the morning. We asked for compensation for 3 lost nights of sleep and a hot house to stay in, but they ignored our request. Beyond that beware they have a clause about you only get $50 a week of electricity then you must pay extra. Well, when you have to cool down a home that has been set to 85 degrees in South Florida that's probable $25 just to cool the house.
Beyond that the coffee maker didn't work and the grill was unsafe. We had to buy a grill to use!
Stay in a Hotel!
Great house with great water access to the gulf. Takes about 5min to the River and 40 mins to the gulf by boat. The Boat lift is such a nice amenity. The public boat launch is 1 mile from the house. The neighbors are great but keep to themselves. Hot tub and pool worked no problem, also had a solar cover for the pool. The house is exactly as you see in the pictures. The owner was very pleasant and easy to deal with. Lots of shopping and restaurants close by. Definitely make your way to Fort Meyers beach, a good seafood restaurant on the way is Pinchers.
Would recommend to a friend, especially if you have your own boat.
This home is truly amazing. It felt like home sweet home..at least for the week that we were there. We spent most of the time in the pool, which is the nicest pool ever. The wading area was so relaxing, and the temperature was soooooo nice, any time of day it was refreshing and relaxing. Beds were so comfortable, although the twin beds were not so popular with our 6 foot daughter that came to visit. She got last pick, but did not complain. This home is in a very nice neighborhood, we felt very safe and everything was close by. We will highly recommend this property as a perfect vacation get-away. You won't want to leave. Thanks, Chris
This is a beautiful home that is nicely decorated. The owner is more than willing to talk with you and provide any information that you require. There was 8 of us that stayed here (5 adults and 3 teenagers) and the home was big enough that we could get out of each other's hair if needed. Trying to get the pool filter going and heat the hot tub is a bit complex - probably will need to call owner to get this going right - we never did get it going right. Our stay was during the summer when it was hot so air conditioning is required and be prepared to pay for some electricity (our total for 7 days was $160 - you are allowed $50) - you can cut this down by turning stuff off or down while you are out. We accidentally turned on the pool heater and there is no need for heat in the pool during this time. If any thing needed to be looked at you called the owner (Chris) and he took care of it right away.
Comments on things to do: outlet malls in the area (short drive) are excellent for bargains, there are Walmarts and other big box stores always close by, the is a gym close by if that is something you need, the area has lots of beautiful homes but at this time of year there is just nothing going on - you are lucky to see other people (must stay inside or something) & close by (driving) are beaches and the islands just to do road trips. Now I want to talk about boat rentals - we prebooked a boat for 3 days ($650) - we get a call stating that they do not have our boat but will pull one out but it can be only for 2 days - we were okay with this, we drove it back to our house and you have to be aware that you can not go outside of the lane ways (red & green) as the river (and other areas) is very shallow and this "warps" the propellers - so make sure you fully understand this before driving - trim the motor up . Boats use a lot of gas - the 2 days we had ours $400 in gas - ouch. Now the propellers - they were previously damaged by sand but we further wrecked them and they are not covered by any insurance that you have - extra cost $700. Now we did have to fight a bit with the boat owner to get somethings changed - overcharged us on gas - was going to charge us with taking the boat out of the water - did take about 5 calls and a few emails to get it down to something "correct" - but they did work with us (Cape Coral Boat Rentals). Also when and if you rent a boat - you always have to slow down at Manatee crossings - never seen one but you do need to slow down.
