About James Weinberger

My wife and I are both on our second marriage and we have custody of all four of our children. My wife's children are all 14 and my son is also 14 and just four days older than the triplets. We have two boys, two girls and two dogs. Our boys are working on their Eagle Scout Projects, I enjoy sailing, and my wife loves the outdoors (hiking, camping). My step daughters are very active in Cheer competition and the Robotics team at school. My wife manages large software development projects for Hospitals and I work for the Missile Defense Agency as the Program Manager of several missile and radar development programs.

James Weinberger purchased this house in 2014

Why James Weinberger chose Cape Coral

In preparation for retirement in 5 years, Southwestern Florida was the location we were seeking. After exploring various towns, Cape Coral appealed to us with its extensive water ways, wide selection of shopping and dining and close proximity to several beaches and wide open gulf for sailing and fishing. Cape Coral is an easy drive to the Southwest International airport as well as the larger towns of Ft Myers, Naples & Tampa Bay.

Until retirement, we are raising our 4 teenagers. This along with the plan that they will return as they grow older and have their own children, Cape Coral offers activities for all ages.

What makes this house unique

We picked south Florida for the weather. We have friends and family in Bonita Springs, Miami, and Ft Pierce. We picked Cape Coral because it was not a tourist destination, but has plenty to offer on it's own while still being close to the 'tourist' Florida. We picked our specific home because of the great views and easy on/off the island as well as close proximity to shopping, restaurants, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jim. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home last month! Every thing was perfect. We especially liked the pool area, where we spend the majority of our time. The sunsets were beautiful from our view looking directly down the channel. We also appreciated having bikes available, as we like to exercise (a little bit ). The proximity to Del Prado was convenient for shopping and dining. Thanks again for everything! Sincerely, Connie and Dan Dwyer

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this home between Nov.11-25 and enjoyed every minute. The house was clean and inviting and complete with all the amenities. There is however a concerning neighbor, a couple of doors away on the canal, which was mentioned by previous tenants, but this of course is no fault of the homeowner, James. If we stay in the Cape Coral area again and this home is available we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Beautiful sunsets, peaceful, and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This home was exceptionally clean upon arrival. (The ceiling fan blades could of used a dusting and sliders to the pool a wiping). House is large and roomy and stocked to capacity with dishes cooking utensils and towels galore! Everything was in working order and up to date including the immaculate gas grill on the patio. The pool was clean and refreshing and very enjoyable. (Toiletries were scarce, one slightly used roll of toilet paper per bathroom and no refills so we had to go out and buy more toilet paper and paper towels). Communication was good and the guest book very helpful and comical. The furniture and bedding in great condition and clean clean clean. Neighbors are quiet but there is a guy down the way who looks around with binoculars so we kept the master bedroom curtains closed. The manager greeted us on the second morning of our arrival and upon departure. Derek was very kind and respectful. Jim the owner was easy to work with when booking. This rental comes every highly recommended if you are looking for a private, tropical, vacation home. The sunsets are absolutely breathtaking and we were there for 4th of July so lots of firework displays seen from the patio.

Owner's Response: Doreen thanks for the review - I took a trip down to the house in late July and cleaned the pool sliders and ceiling fan blades on the l'nai - I hope you will consider coming back :)

Good location great house

  • 5 of 5

A quiet, end of a canal location. The house was well furnished with plenty of space. Three bedrooms, living room, dinining room and a 2 couch setting area. The management staff was promt in return calls.When the need arose a maintenance person responded post haste. The house was very accessible to restaurants, big box stores and general shopping. If available I wouldn't hesitate renting the house for next year.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodations and very clean! We enjoyed our stay-the pool was great with wonderful canal views. Could not ask for anything more needed in the house and the kitchen was stocked well with cooking utensils and dishes. We would definitely recommend this rental and would certainly rent it again! The owners were very nice to work with also.

second visit to this great villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 glorious weeks at Sunsets on the Canal in late April. It was our second year in a row at the villa. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful throughout the whole process. The villa was very well equipped, including push bikes, beach chairs, floats and umbrellas. The outlook from the pool area is hard to beat with fabulous sunsets. There is a great choice of shops and restaurants only a short drive away. Looking forward to returning in the coming years.
