This is an incredibly open, inviting Florida home with plenty of sun to warm you, and water to cool you. From the street, the pave stone circle drive is ringed by Royal Palms, a majestic Florida tree. Drive into the two car garage, or stroll thru the front door and see what awaits!
Two full living areas with leather seating and big screen TVs flank either side of the fully appointed kitchen and dining areas. A master suite with Queen bed and bath is spacious, and offers plenty of closet and drawer storage. Bath includes both a shower and jetted tub, along with his and her sinks.
Another bedroom offers one Queen bed, and the third bedroom has two twins. Both of these bedrooms share a full bathroom.
A 'bonus' sleeping room contains a full size 'click-clack' which is extremely thick and comfortable. No closet in this bonus room means we can not call it an actual bedroom, though it serves that purpose for many of our guests.
Three sides of the home's interior open up with glass sliding doors, so that inside/outside living is seamless. The covered lanai has a dining table for four, a comfortable couch and big screen TV. Just beyond is the crystal clear pool with easy entry steps and waterfall for hours of relaxation. The pool is enclosed by a large screened cage. A 6 person hot tub flanks the pool and is positioned for easy canal front water views.
Step beyond the pool, and you'll take a few steps to the boat dock and deck areas. This dock has two lifts, so if you're a boater, this is another valuable benefit. Relax on the dock and perfect your suntan, or fish from the dock for some excellent catch of the day!
We live in Kansas City and own five vacation rentals, though our flagship property is Palaco Grande in Cape Coral, FLA. Our long term goal is to live here at Palaco Grande year round and get out of the crazy Kansas weather. But til that happens, we welcome guests to come and enjoy it themselves!
Betsy Donnelly purchased this villa in 2011
We stayed at Palaco Grande for the month of January 2013 and had a great time. The house was beautiful and spotless. The views were amazing and I enjoyed being in a quiet residential neighborhood. The owner was helpful with any questions we had. We did not want to leave!

We recently stayed at Palaco Grande over the Christmas holidays. Betsy was kind enough to call me a couple of times prior to our stay to assure me we had made the right choice and that everything was ready and waiting for us in sunny Florida!
She couldn't have been more right. The house was easy to access and was full of every amenity you could ask for. It was clean with lots of spare bedding, towels and bathroom tissue. The furniture was modern and suited the home well. The wi-fi was high-speed and tvs were all new and worked perfectly.
Between the pool and the hot tub, it was hard to drag ourselves out of the house but when you do, everything is easy to find. Fort Myers Beach is a short 25 minute drive if you want some stellar sandy beaches and lots of tourists but if you want some quiet time to relax and float in a pool, this is your place.
We spent our holiday afternoons in the hottub with a cocktail to watch the sunset and wave at passing boats. It really was a fabulous house and I would recommend this to both couples and families that like to spend time together having bbqs and making blender drinks!
We didn't have a boating license but I would imagine if you did, this house would be perfect for that type of adventure as well.
I expect we will be back for another visit to Cape Coral and I would rent Palaco Grande in a hearbeat!
Palaco Grande is one of the best homes we have ever stayed in, the home has everything a family would need, from the relaxing hot tub to the pool. The Cape Coral area has a ton of great restaurants from pubs to fine dining. Betsy took care of everything, she is an owner that really cares about her property and it shows. I would recommend this home to my friends and family, once again thank you Betsy for sharing your home with us. There is no question we will be back.
Es ist ein sehr schönes Haus mit einer super Lage direkt am breiten Kanal. Das ganze Quartier ist gepflegt und macht einen sehr gehobenen und sauberen Eindruck.
Die Möblierung ist schön und man fühlt sich sofort zu hause. Wir haben es sehr, sehr genossen.
Einziger Schwachpunkt sind die Pfannen in der Küche. Billigeres Material habe ich noch nie gesehen. Kochen ist eine Herausforderung.
Our family stayed in this great house as a get away for the 4th of July. The accommodations were great and having our boat in the backyard made getting out to sea a breeze. We found the house to be in a great location, close to lots of stores etc and the pool and dock were just what we needed to enjoying a relaxing time away. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to take their family and their boat for a great get away.
Two week stay at Palaco Grande was very relaxing. Home was big and clean, had lots of space to sit and relax. Enjoyed our morning coffee out on the dock and patio areas. Fishing was fun, boat dock made it easy for my son in laws boat. Public ramp gave us easy access. Highly recommend this vacation home.
Betsy made contracting this home very easy.
Thank you, Vincent & Marie
Highly recommend this home rental. It contained every amenity that it promised to have. Great location, beautiful views, did not want to leave! We are already planning a return next year. Thanks for your hospitality!
Cape Coral is what vacationers who visit Florida are looking for. Sunshine, sand, surf and plenty of terrific boating and fishing.
For those who love the water, the Caloosahatchie River and the Gulf of Mexico are 60 seconds (only four houses!) by boat from this canal-front home -- and no bridges mean easy sailboat access.
10 minutes from The Cape Coral Yacht Club gives visitors access to the beach, waterfront dining, swimming pools, tennis courts, public boat launch, picnic areas and more.
This home is just ten minutes from downtown Ft Myers, the cultural center of town and the historic Edison and Ford summer homes/museums. A few more minutes and you can be on Ft Myers Beach, or the beautiful seashelled islands of Captiva and Sanibel.
