This attractive vacation home is on a quiet street yet a only a short walk or bike ride to downtown Cape Coral with its impressive variety of restaurants, bars, shops and farmer’s market. Short bike ride to Cape Coral Yacht Club, pier, restaurant and beach. Also a central location for quick road access to all major Fort Myers and Sanibel Island attractions.
Villa Sonrisa is a recently renovated and beautifully furnished Gulf access home with an electric heated pool and spa. A dock, boat lift and a beautiful seating area overlooking the impressive 200’ Rubicon Canal allows for sunbathing, fishing, kayaking and sunset watching. Villa Sonrisa has an usually large backyard which allows for additional privacy and quiet. Swim in the large heated pool, soak in the comfort of the heated spa, take a walk in the beautiful neighborhood or do some fishing from your own private dock. You can do it all! From the comfort of your lounge chair you will enjoy the wide sweeping water views; watch dolphins swimming and fish jumping in the intersecting canals. Due to the large backyard, you will be always able to enjoy the sun and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
The 1971 square feet Villa Sonrisa offers 3 bedrooms and 2 baths under air conditioning. In Florida, we entertain, eat and play outside and the outside screened lanai and pool area provides another 1250 square feet. The Villa has a split floor plan with a very private master suite on one side and the guest rooms on the opposite side of the house. The fully equipped kitchen with its upgraded stainless steel appliances and a convenient breakfast bar is right at the center of the house. Kitchen has both a Keurig and conventional drip coffee maker. On one side of the kitchen is a formal dining room section for six. On the other side of the kitchen you will find a open family room featuring a couch with recliner, two leather side chairs and a large flat screen Smart TV. There is a formal living room as well for the grown ups with it’s own large screen flat Smart TV.
Two bicycles, two 10’ kayaks and two fishing poles are provided with the house. The Villa has just installed a new kayak launch (see photos)! The kayak launch lowers the kayak into the water and guests can then easily board, even at the lowest of tides. It is very rare that a seasonal rental is equipped with a kayak launch. It makes all the difference for hassle free kayaking! Just launch the kayaks from the dock and enjoy an early morning paddle down the wide Rubicon Canal – the “Grand Canal of Cape Coral.” Fishing from the dock is always fun!
The Villa provides all the goodies for a day at the beach: cooler, beach chairs, umbrella and towels.
Owner prefers Saturday to Saturday, 7 or 14 night stays during high season (December-April), however will make exceptions, so please inquire. Monthly rentals are always appreciated! 15% discount for stays greater than 28 nights.

It was everything the online description photo gallery displayed.
The owner was very helpful. The property was beautiful and we had everything we needed to make for a great vacation.
Beautiful home! Great owner!
This was a beautiful home, close to shopping and dining. Chuck, the owner, was wonderful! Met us when we arrived late at night and came back to go through things with us at our convenience. The house was comfortable and spacious. The pool and hot tub were great and the patio down by the canal was perfect for sun bathing. Would definitely come back.
After staying here, I wish I lived here.
Since there is so much good to say, I’ll be concise.
First, Chuck, the owner, greeted us, explained all the features and functionings of the property and even provided us with a very handy set of instruction and guide manuals (& a special “welcome to your vacation”gift).
The house is perfectly located on the waterfront, comes complete with boat and kayak docks (kayaks, bikes, fishing gear and more were also provided). Met several of the neighbors, all of whom were nice people.
The house itself provided both door and outdoor areas in which to relax - WiFi worked everywhere onethe property.
Furniture is very comfortable, TVs have great picture quality and the house is conveniently located to restaurants, parks and shopping. I personally liked walkingabout a half mile to the Cape Coral Arts building for optional classes.
The pool and hot tub were frequently used.
When we did have a question or issue, Chuck responded immediately. We couldn’t have asked for a better host!
Extremely clean, everything we needed
My husband and I stayed at Villa Sonrisa during the month of January. We were more than comfortable in this home and were close to anything we might have needed. It would be perfect for a family. Would recommend this property!
