The complete remodeling of this luxury villa has been finished in November 2012 and Villa 'Old Florida' features a new heated saltwater pool and waterfall spa (16x30 sqft), a new white metal roof and new pool screen and privacy fence.

This large two-story villa offers more than 3800 sq.ft of air conditioned space and includes a Gingerbread front porch with swing and rocking chairs. Our vacation home is tastefully decorated and well equipped with hardwood floors throughout and a radio surround system.

Villa 'Old Florida' has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a huge game room with pool table and is fully equipped with everything you need for a wonderful vacation.

3 bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes (2 king, 1 queen with Henredon vintage furniture) are situated on the first floor as well as the ensuite master bath with jacuzzi and the 2nd bathroom.

A girl's room with 2 Captain's beds and 2 trundles, 3rd bathroom with separate shower and a boy's room with 2 Captain's beds and 2 trundles are situated on the second floor.

The huge game room with pool table/table tennis, flatscreen TV (32'), DVD player, board games, puzzles, English, German and French books, and Air Hockey make this the perfect retreat for kids and teenagers.

The kitchen includes granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The living room features a beautiful open fire place, high cathedral ceilings with 2 huge fans, flatscreen TV (52'), free movies with Premium DirecTV and free phone calls in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico.

The oversized boat dock overlooking the canal will provide waterfront living at its best. Here you can sunbathe, fish (yellow fish lights on the dock help to attract fish) or just relax in the Tiki-Hut and enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

Have fun with the whole family on our 24 ft Rinker Flotilla with 230 Volvo Penta motor and Garmin GPS, depth- and fish finder. The boat can carry 12 adults. No boat licence needed in Florida. Including Sea Tow and skipper insurance.

About Michèle Van Elslander - Slunecko

We are a polyglott Belgian family with 4 children and love to travel with friends.

Michèle Van Elslander - Slunecko purchased this villa in 2012

Why Michèle Van Elslander - Slunecko chose Cape Coral

We fell in love with Florida, the Sunshine State Florida and its tropical climate. This property allows to spend vacation time with 2 or 3 families. Cape Coral's many canals allow for easy gulf access and they are always fun to discover. Our children love to explore Sanibel, Captiva and Cayo Costa, find sea shells and ride the boat. A lot of fun for the whole family.

This vacation home is ideally located on a salt water canal and gives us a relaxed tropical feeling every day.

What makes this villa unique

The access to the Gulf of Mexico, unique Key West style and Gingerbread features, golf courses, all amenities close by and situated in a very quiet cul-de-sac.

beautiful to look at however the boat was a disappointment

  • 1 of 5

Couldn't figure out how to heat the hot tub until the day before departure when the property manager came out to go over the home due to our very early departure the following morning. The boat didn't work and we were basicly blamed for it not running properly. The property managers told us they didn't deal with the boat and the so-called boat mechanic/"captain" told us it wasn't his boat, the owner accused us of grounding the boat and over heating the motor, which never happened. I wonder how many others have dealt with this ordeal. We were very disappointed!!!!

Perfect family house!

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Michele for allowing us to stay at her beautiful home in Cape Coral for two weeks! The beds were very comfortable, the home was spotless and the pool and hot tub were great. Our children and grandchildren came for three days and did not want to go home. We hope to be back again next year!

Awesome Accomadations

  • 5 of 5

We rented for 2 weeks over Christmas. The owner put up a tree and holiday decoration along with having the home and pool clean and ready for our arrival. It is a beautiful home, well taken care of. We had 8 adults and 6 children for part of our stay and had plenty of space for everyone. There are lots of tables, dishes and cookware so you can feed a big group? We rented the boat and had lots of fun going to the beach or just touring the canals. The owner was in contact with us making sure everything was as we expected. This was my 1st VRBO and I will definently do it again. I would rent this home even for just my husband and myself. I really hated to leave!!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We were privileged to rent this house for a week. We found the house just as described and enjoyed our stay there very much. There is ample room both inside and out for seating large groups. There is a nice view of the canal from the Tiki Hut deck. The boat seats many people and can be used as transport to local restaurants etc. We loved the salt-water pool...very relaxing. The surrounding area is well- manicured and has a "safe neighborhood" feel. The local area has much to offer in the way of restaurants, shopping and beaches. (We especially loved "The Lobster Lady" on Chiquita where we had a huge appetizer of various seafood. So fresh and prepared well.) We really had a great vacation here and felt this home was a good value.

Owner's Response: We are very glad that you had a wonderful vacation and that you enjoyed the boat as much as the seafood! Thanks and see you again soon. Michèle

Perfect house for big family in i safe and peaceful area.

  • 5 of 5

A very nice house with good location and in very good condition, we lived 11 people there and never felt it was crowded. The kitchen was well equipped and there were large living areas on both floors. We had very good weather and the days we did not went to the beach, it was wonderful to swim in the saltwater pool and sunbathing along the water.

A quiet and well-kept area but still central to what we wanted to see and experience.

Norbert (caretaker) was pleasant and accommodating and showed good, simple how everything worked when we arrived and met up when we went home.

Can heartily recommend the Old Villa Florida and we can definitely see us going tillbakan again.

family friendly

  • 4 of 5

This lovely property is tucked into the residential area of Cape Coral on a canal. The grounds ate full of plants and flowers which make a lovely back drop to the salt water pool and alfresco dining. The kitchen has a pass through window that makes dining and clean up easy.

The pool was a great addition. Make sure to leave the water fall running even at night to help with circulation and keep the pool clean for your stay.

Make sure to call the property manager as soon as an issue arises as he is most helpful and can get things fixed up quickly. We encountered a few issues because of the previous renters but were able to find solutions.
