About The Brit and The Texan!

Once Upon a Time.............. thirty-one years ago, a Brit and a Texan met in Washington, DC. married, and finally moved to this beautiful section of SW Florida in July 2013!

Villa Savona is on the Whipoorwill Canal, in the prestigious 'old' section of Cape Coral.

Brief History! : [Cape Coral is a city located in Lee County, Florida, United States, on the Gulf of Mexico. Founded in 1957 and developed as a master-planned, pre-platted community, the city grew to a population of 154,305 by the year 2010. The city's population estimate was 165,831 for 2013 and 181,211 for 2015. With an area of 120 square miles (310 km2), Cape Coral is the largest city between Tampa and Miami. It is a principal city in the Cape Coral – Fort Myers, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population estimate for the statistical area was 679,513 for 2014. The city is known as a "Waterfront Wonderland", with over 400 mi (640 km) of navigable waterways]

In the Villa we provide a wealth of information on the Cape, shopping, restaurants, fishing, golf, tennis, and all the etcetera-s!

The Brit spent many years in the hospitality industry, the Texan is a Mean Grillin' Chef, and a heckuva bartender, in short, great Inn-Keepers!

The Brit and The Texan! purchased this villa in 2014

Why The Brit and The Texan! chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We love the layout of Villa Savona; the Master Bedroom Wing is distinctly separated from the Guest Wing, the formal dining room, wine room, and living room divide the two. Sliders in the Master Bedroom and Dining Room open way, way back onto the great outdoors of the pool and lanai! The Kitchen is EASY, and has a great pass-thru to the lanai, and the outdoor dining area is under cover for any of those brief Florida showers during meals. From the Dock and its Tiki Hut you look up and down the 120 ft. canal, and the fishing is right there! The boat lift is ready to accommodate up to a 30ft. boat We can put you in contact with some dependable boat rental companies that will deliver directly to our dock, provide insurance, and instruction - if required. We also re-purposed the entrance and now we have a quaint and picturesque courtyard before you enter the home, perfect for that morning cuppa, or the evening cocktail!

What makes this villa unique

Villa Savona's location is another of its blessings! In the beautiful sought after residential neighborhood of Savona (you've also heard about our burrowing owls, right??) and close to everything CAPE! Just over the bridge from Ft. Myers (and Sanibel, and Captiva!) restaurants, countless little bars and informal dining, pizza delivery, just something for everyone, all close by! Shopping {Google Miromar and/or Sanibel outlets), the Yacht Club and Beach, gerzillions of golf courses, lighted tennis courts at the Yacht Club, plus some of the best fishing in the world!!!! The World's Richest Tarpon Tournament tradition continued in May this year of 2016......... this year the prize money was $80,000 based on a field of 20 boats., and held just 60 miles away, in Boca Grande!

Ft. Myers at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates are just over the bridge. Sun Splash Family Waterpark with its 14+ acres of waterslides, a lazy river & kids' water play area is very close by on Santa Barbara Blvd. (last operating day for each season is the end of September) The Cape is close to everything, and the Villa Savona is RIGHT THERE!

Ah, we can also arrange tee times for you, plus rental clubs............... we provide tennis racquets, bikes, and canoes................... the last three are included in the rental, as are life jackets, and helmets. We also provide chaises and pool towels, as well as Beach Chairs. You really DESERVE this stay at Villa Savona........... come let us pamper you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Viewing on the internet could not properly convey the warmth, comfort, yet sheer luxury of Villa Savona! Everything is new and perfect and ever so clean, inside and out. We had the master bedroom (Gorgeous BTW!) and the kids occupied the guest rooms on the other side of the home....Perfect arrangement. We all had our separate bathrooms and bedroom tvs. Pool, and lanai were absolutely great and so relaxing and fun (my husband, once again, was Master Grill Chef!)

Hoping to book again for July and/or August before kids return to school. The owners booked us a FAB boat and we visited Sanibel Island and Captiva.....Bob wants a Harley next!!!! Ah, really, it's a minor thing, but the attention to detail extends to the luxury of THREE coffee makers, Drip, French Press, or Espresso...!!! His n Hers spa robes for master bedroom (and Really comfy chaises on the slider lanai).... owners, Paul and Angela, also included our personalized cards which showed our names, our dates at this... more

Thanksgiving Week with family

  • 5 of 5

This property is in an excellent location. The owners have extras that are included. Bikes, fishing poles, kayaks and a table tennis table found in the garage. Paul and Angela made arrangements to meet with us at 10 pm for our arrival from Universal Studios; I thought that was going above and beyond for us. We were in Cape Coral last spring and as we were riding our bikes around looking at houses we said that this house would be great to stay in. We were surprised when it was available for our Thanksgiving trip. The house was a great place to stay and have Thanksgiving with our family. We brought our dog with us and there were special treats for waiting for him. The boat hoist was an added plus as we could lift the boat out every night and made it easy for everyone to get into the boat. I would like to thank Paul and Angela again for everything. We will be staying with them in the future. Also the Villa is in a very safe and friendly area; we left our kayaks out by the canal and equipment in the boat all week.

Es war wieder eine wunderschöne Zeit!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Nun haben wir schon das zweite Mal Villa Savona gemietet, diesmal für mehr als 9 Wochen (66 Nächte). Wir hätten es auch noch länger aushalten können. Der Aufenthalt in Villa Savona war ausgesprochen angenehm durch die hervorragende, freundliche und herzliche Betreuung durch Angela und Paul, DANKE!!!

Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt und werden noch lange an die täglichen "afternoon-drinks" unterm TIKIHUT denken.

Auf jeden Fall bis zum Wiederkommen und das werden wir.

Ein Urlaub wie bei Freunden

  • 5 of 5

Wir kommen schon seit 5 Jahren nach Cape Coral und haben bisher nur über deutsch sprechende Vermittler und Hausverwalter gebucht, weil wir nicht so gut englisch sprechen. Der Versuch, über einen amerikanischen Eigentümer direkt zu buchen, war ein großer Erfolg. Die geringen Sprachkenntnisse waren kein Problem. Die Eigentümer Angela und Paul waren keine Vermieter, sie waren Gastgeber. Das Haus war für uns optimal, alles geschmackvoll und sinnvoll für einen längeren Aufenthalt, wir waren 7 Wochen in dem Haus. Pool und vor allem Bootssteg mit Tikihut fanden wir besonders schön. Es gab eigentlich keine Probleme, bei Rückfragen waren Angela oder Paul sofort zur Stelle.

Wir sind Golfspieler und hier war Paul der richtige Ansprechpartner. Obwohl wir Golfplätze im nahen Umfeld kennen, hat er uns wertvolle Hinweise gegeben und ist auch mit uns zum Golfspielen gegangen. Auch mit dem Boot sind wir mit Angela und Paul ohne Brücken und Schleusen sehr schnell auf dem River gewesen, ein Traum.

Fort Myers Beach, unsere Lieblingsbeach, haben wir von Villa Savona in 20 Minuten erreicht, Cape Coral Beach (baden im Fluss) in 5 Minuten.

Restaurants, Bars sind in großer Anzahl und aufgrund der zentralen Lage von Villa Savona in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen, Steakhous, Pizza Hut sogar zu Fuss. Alle Einkaufsmöglichkeiten für Lebensmittel, Kleidung, Sport in unmittelbarer Nähe.

Wir haben die Abendstunden, den Sonnenuntergang vom Bootssteg mit Tikihut oder dem idyllischen Platz vor dem Haus genossen. Für nächstes Jahr (2016) haben wir bereits die Monate Mai und Juni reserviert, zwei Monate und mehr kann man gut in Villa Savona und bei Angela und Paul aushalten.

Major Holiday Bookings will incur a 20% supplement, depending on the number of guests.

The prevailing rate of .0756 per kWh for the first 500 is charged, plus the Power Cost Adjustment at 0.0146. To translate to English that we all understand!....... it usually runs about $46 for five days, which is being sensible with the Air Conditioning, keeping sliders closed if you have it running [some months are SO gorgeous here, you'll find you never use it anyway!!!] and not using the pool heater.

If when you arrive, we see that you are accompanied by more persons than you made the booking for, you will be charged.

After the initial deposit, the balance will be due depending on the time frame of your booking. Each reservation will be on a case-by-case basis. We LOVE animals and want them to be as comfortable and as well taken care of in Villa Savona as you will be. Let us know breed, weight, age............... an additional cleaning fee may be required. However, they will love it here! They might even see a special treat for them!
