Why Julie Wirtanen chose Cape Coral

We bought this property as a place both of our families could go to relax and vacation. During the times we are not here, we want to share it with you.

We can easily sum up how we all feel about it: we never want to leave when it's time to go home!

What makes this house unique

Palm Villa provides the perfect opportunity for a family vacation for 1 or 2 families; girls or guys getaway or romantic holiday. Cape Coral and this area of the Gulf offers everything from boating and fishing, golfing to birdwatching, and sightseeing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The nicest shower I have every been in. You can stand in the shower during the day and no one can see in and watch boats go by on the canal. Absolutely spectacular. The house has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. Very quite neighborhood and the sound from the various waterfalls is wonderful.

My family of five enjoyed themselves . The pool and hot tub was a must everyday. The house is large and accomadating. Neighborhood was peaceful and quite. Watched the boats come and go.

Also was not far to grocery store or any of the surrounding beaches. Thanks for having us.

Excellent Florida Property With Lots of Privacy and Amenities

  • 5 of 5

Loved visiting here and enjoyed everything this property has to offer which is lots. You can stay here the entire time and completely have the ultimate vacation experience. But it is also close to Cape Harbor and local towns where there are excellent restaurants and shopping. Golf is close by as well. But once you get here you may not want to leave. Enjoy the waterfront pool, waterfall spa and the outdoor dining (with outdoor kitchen) and tiki bar. Also, a nice private gym and a sauna right there for after you workout. The boat access will allow a private rental company the ability to deliver a rental boat for the day and Sanibel Island is a quick boat ride over. The home is perfect for families that want to vacation together. Also, beautiful décor and lots of light throughout the home. Enjoy! I sure did.

Right on the water, and every amenity.

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect, inside and out. You can get anywhere easily from here -- a few minutes to dining and shopping, 30 minutes to Sanibel Island. But you won't want to leave, the place is so lovely. Especially the gorgeous lanai with pool, hot tub, outdoor kitchen and dining, even your own tiki bar! The sunsets from the dock are to die for. We rented kayaks and paddled thru the mangroves right from the dock. There's a boat lift if you want to power boat on the Gulf. Beautifully furnished and the kitchen has everything. There's even a private gym with views of the water.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Peninsula Point.

My girlfriends and I have stayed in the home twice, once in spring, once in summer.

While we enjoyed the area's upscale consignment shops, cool restaurants, and a jaunt to Sanibel Island, the home was so lovely that for the most part we were content to stay in and hang out under the lanai.

The surrounding neighborhood is serene, and the location directly adjacent to a waterway and the Matlacha Pass Wildlife Preserve gives the home the feeling of a four star resort. We swam in the pool, soaked in the hot tub, and watched wild birds wheel over the endless fields of mangroves. Cooking was a pleasure in the large and beautiful kitchen. We particularly enjoyed the spa-like bathroom on the second floor, with its panoramic view of the preserve. The home is beautifully decorated, well maintained, and spotless. I hope to visit again.

Best Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

I recommend this house to anyone considering it - what a great find! This house is a beautiful executive waterfront home in a safe and upscale community. This vacation home was perfect for working remote during the day as well as entertaining. Every morning we enjoyed breakfast out by the huge pool followed by daily boat trips to visit Cabbage Island, Picnic Island and Captiva Island. We enjoyed bird watching from the dock and were so thrilled to experience several dolphin sightings while out boating. This vacation house also had a workout room that allowed us to continue with our workout routine. We were also very pleased with the restaurant selections which we could travel to via car or boat. Every night ended with star gazing in the hot tub. After renting this home, I don't think I'll ever want to stay in a hotel again.

Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was a fabulous find! Six adults, two children, and one baby left the cold snowy land of WI and traveled to FL for a week long stay in this wonderfully appointed home. The owners were so accommodating and easy to work with-they even bought a pack and play for our unexpected third child! The pool and hot tub were used everyday and we enjoyed eating out on the back deck nightly. We couldn't have asked for better weather (80+ everyday). We rented a boat and enjoyed many lunches aboard it while discovering different cities and much sealife! Excellent location-we felt safe day and night. Perfect location for running, biking and walking as well. Absolutely perfect vacation! We would recommend staying here to everyone!!

Southwest Florida and Gulf of Mexico offer beautiful beaches, wildlife and lush subtropical foliage. The area-- comprised of Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Hendry and Glades counties -- combines the sophistication of a pampered island resort with the relaxed style of Old Florida. From the Ten Thousand Islands that lie in tranquil azure waters off its coast, to the vast wilderness preserves that claim its southern reaches, Southwest Florida luxuriously rolls out the welcome mat, beckoning visitors to enjoy idyllic beach getaways and captivating backcountry adventures.

The area has everything to offer for family vacations and romantic getaways alike: 95 golf courses; numerous wildlife sanctuaries and refugees; museums and waterparks; nearby Naples, Florida offers cruises down to the Florida Keys; three airports to choose to fly in and out of; city life - downtown Fort Myers is close by and Miami, Orlando and Tampa are all within a three-hour drive away. For the naturalist, Sanibel, Captiva Island, Pine Island and Marco Island are all a short drive or boat ride away.
