About the property

3 BR Luxury Waterfront Villa in quiet location convenient to everything!

Villa Rosegarden is a beautiful contemporary waterfront villa on wide canal in the upscale Rose Garden neighborhood, a peaceful family neighborhood with very little traffic.

Updated and remodeled in 2016, the villa features a wide open floor plan with great flow between all rooms and a large screened in lanai with heated pool. The spacious family room with HDTV and stereo, the living and dining rooms, the master bedroom (with flat-screen TV), and the kitchen are all open to the lanai and pool, and have broad views of the water. Fish or relax on the large wooden deck with a tiki hut and table that extends out over the canal.

Egrets may wander by, and manatees and occasional dolphins swim right by the deck. Mature tropical landscaping surrounds the Villa, including trees that provide bananas, limes, mangoes, and coconuts in season. Cable TV, free wifi, indoor/outdoor stereo, a barbeque grill, fishing tackle, and bicycles are also provided.

Master bedroom bath suite has separate sinks, European shower, and whirlpool bath. Two additional bedrooms feature a queen-size bed, and two singles. The living room and family room sofas are convertible to beds, and there is also a foldaway crib. Laundry room with washer and dryer. The villa is all on one level.

Cape Coral offers 340 days of sunshine annually, and 400 miles of canals (more than any other city on Earth.) Southwest Florida - including Cape-Coral, Fort Myers, Naples, and Marco Island - offers cultural attractions, museums and performance venues, fine restaurants, golf courses, natural areas, and other recreational attractions. Minutes from the villa are Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel & Captiva (world's best shell-hunting!), Naples, and many beautiful beaches of pure white sand, all easily reached by car or by boat.

There are nominal cleaning, and excess electricity fees that are paid to our manager, as well, because extra A/C in Summer and extra pool heating in Winter can increase electricity costs. Florida State tax is 6% and Lee County room tax is 5%.

About Dennis and Maureen Jackson

We are semi-retired empty-nesters originally from Connecticut USA. We travel as much as we can, and reserve Villa Rosegarden for ourselves for much of the Winter. It's so beautiful here! We love it so much and miss it when we're away, so we visit frequently, and are also happy to be able to share it with guests the rest of the year.

Dennis and Maureen Jackson purchased this villa in 2011

Why Dennis and Maureen Jackson chose Cape Coral

Cape Coral is uncongested compared to other Gulf Coast towns because it is almost entirely residential but never fully occupied. It was also ranked as Florida's #1 retirement community in 2015 by Bankrate magazine. The beautiful setting of Villa Rosegarden is peaceful and relaxing, with all main rooms open to the water. Enjoy the open flow with double and triple-wide sliding glass doors from every room to the screened-in pool and lanai by the water. The private deck out over the canal with tiki hut and round table accommodates both activity and relaxation. The neighborhood is close to everything but there are no through streets so it is quiet and peaceful. Villa Rosegarden is ideal for families, couples, and friends. It is comfortable for 2, 4, or 6 people (or even 8 if you use the pullouts.)

What makes this villa unique

There are many properties available in Cape Coral, but few that are affordable in a location like this in the peaceful, upscale, and sought-after Rose Garden District.

One of our early guests may have said it best: 'We have been coming down to Cape Coral for 8 years and while we have enjoyed every year, we think this is the best yet!'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our vacation here was amazing! Your home is very nice and we felt very welcomed. Cape Coral is such a nice place and we enjoyed it so much. It is so beautiful here!

A very nice home in a quiet area. Great for relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we walked into the house we knew we made the right choice. The house is clean and spacious. Although it was only my wife and I we could have easily bought 2 more couples with us and have plenty of room. The pool deck was where we spent most of our week and my wife really enjoyed sitting on the boat deck enjoying the breeze and watching the dolphins swim by. We had a great week and would highly recommend this house. It was also nice to see the personal note welcoming us and the snacks that were waiting for us. Just what I needed after driving all day.

Excellent Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our kids, have been renting homes through VRBO for our past 7 or 8 vacations. This is our 4th to FL. We've had nothing but good experiences. This specific property had all the best things of our previous vacation rental properties all wrapped into one. We will definitely be returning next year!

More specifically, this home has the layout, cleanliness, and location we want. The master bedroom is on the opposite side of the home as the 2 guest rooms, which is perfect for allowing the parents to be able to sleep without listening to their teenage daughters giggle all night! He master bath is very spacious with everything my wife and I could need or want.. My wife especially loved the deck on the canal. Her mornings were spent with a cup of coffee and a calm, peaceful waterway to enjoy in quiet. The home was very clean top to bottom. While I didn't move the stove, I'd wager that I could have and still wouldn't of found anything but cleanliness. Cape Coral is a great destination being so close to Fort Meyers Beach. It's just a 15 or 20 minute ride and we could be sitting in the touristy spot or we could stay on the Capa Coral for a more "we live in a Florida" type of feel. It is very close to groceries, gas, etc.

Overall, I highly recommend this property. The owners were very responsive before, during and after our stay. Like I said at the beginning, this has all the good stuff we've found over the years all wrapped into one property!

This place is absolutely amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for six adult women to spend a nice time away from home. It was very quiet at all times of the day. Being by the canal and sitting down on the deck was an amazing place for morning tea. The pool and lanai area was a place we spent a lot of time. We were only in the house to make some food and sleep. The location of the home is incredible. Close to many activities and restaurants. The owners were fabulous and got back to us right away with any questions we had. The six of us highly recommend you stay here as your home away when in the Cape Coral/Fort Myers/Sanibel area.

Great Villa in a Private Setting

  • 5 of 5

Villa Rosegarden exceeded our expectations!

We wanted a relaxing vacation and this was a great choice. We enjoyed the lanai, pool and tiki table on the dock each day the weather cooperated.

Villa Rosegarden is well equipped with all necessities and more. Furnishings are in very good condition. It is close to shopping and many restaurants. We especially recommend the Fishtale Grill.

Dennis, the owner, was very helpful with providing information about the villa, things to do in the area, shopping and restaurants, which was very helpful.

We look forward to our next visit!

Cape Coral is a relaxed resort and residential community. It is geographically large and spread out with plenty of recreational and cultural opportunities, dining, and shopping. Cape Coral is adjacent to Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach, close to Miramar Outlets, and an easy drive to Naples or Sarasota. Our historic Rose Garden neighborhood is close to downtown but off the beaten track with no through traffic. Our local streets are great for walking and biking (bikes provided.) Nearby Rotary Park is an easy stroll with fountains, an exercise trail, playground, butterfly house, and nature museum with trails through the mangroves. SunSplash Family Water Park is a great place to take the kids!
