Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms including pool bath, sleeps 6

Very private paradise. The yard is fenced for ultimate privacy. There are empty lots on either side and just nature across the canal. The pool and lanai area are huge with over 1100 sq feet of screened sunny splendor. The lanai area has a glass table for 4 with swivel, rocking chairs, two loungers, and 4 comfy cushioned chairs and coffee table. There is a large kitchen window pass through. Also on the deck area are another table for 4 near the gas grill and two other loungers. The spa seats 6 and has 50 jets, and lights. Along with 3 fans and lights, we also have two lighted palm tree lamps on the lanai just for fun! If you prefer to tan without a screen we have a separate tanning pad or the dock area. Inside we have air conditioning, lighted fans in each bedroom, living room and family room. This home is nicely furnished and decorated. Comfort is key! Reclining seats in the family room with a 50 inch TV.

Comfort is key!: All house furnishings are geared to comfort. You can put your feet up in the family room and really relax! There are plenty of glasses and bowls, utensils and pans. The lanai is large and has several seating areas. The pool is heated and protected from north winds in the winter. The hot tub has 50 jets and changing colored lights. There is an additional deck area for lounging, grilling, eating. There is even an area outside of the screened enclosure for tanning. Because the whole yard is fenced, it is extremely private for swimming and sunning.

The 50 inch TV has HD and includes many music channels. There is unlimited local and long distance calling in the US only. There is a wireless router and work area with view to the lanai and canal.

The dining table has swivel, chairs on casters. They are leather with arms, very comfortable for sitting. You can watch TV from the table if desired. Great for playing family games.

There is a printer for your use and two computer chairs.

Canal: This house faces East on a fresh water canal. It receives lots of sunshine all day from sun up through sun set. Because the house makes a little shade on the pool in the afternoon, it is still bearable on the really hot summer days. You can sit in our screened front porch area to watch the sunsets. There are no houses across the canal so this also contributes to the very private feel of this house. The canal is very close to Shamrock Lake, Lake Saratoga and Lake Kennedy.

Convenient Location: Another positive for this house is it's great location. You could walk or ride your bike (basket on bike) to the grocery store. You can ride bikes to two close by parks that have a playground for the kids. Sunsplash Water Park and Mike Greenwell's Family Fun Park are both only a mile away. It is very close to the main roads with restaurants. It is 10 miles to Cape Coral Yacht Club beach, 25 miles to Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach, about 8 miles to Fort Myers and the Edison/Ford Estate. The airport is 21 miles away.

This house is listed as the 22nd least expensive out of 869 listings for Cape Coral. You get a lot of value for your money when renting this house. Many guests return yearly after staying at Sunny Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This reveiw was left in our guest book by Tiffany V. from Lakeland, Florida. I'm glad everthing you needed was right there. Karen



We had the greatest time and everything was even better than we had hoped for! There was nothing we needed that could not be found in the house- what a delight. We all found something to do to relax and with children ages 14 yrs, 12 yrs, 6 1/2 yr and a 2 1/2 year old, I never heard the words: I'm bored- that was wonderful. Thank you Karen and Ken for sharing your private paradise with us. We really hope to come back again.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be above our expectations, having stayed in many villas in Florida we found this to be one of the best. The boat was an added bonus and had loads of fun going up and down the canals, we spotted loads of wildlife in and around the canal, look out for the otters they were so much fun. The master bedroom and en-suite were very comfortable, and we spent a lot of time in the hot tub. Sanibel and Pine Island are a must see, and also try the pizza place on Hancock bridge Blvd. called I Ragazzi Pizza, they are the most welcoming people, and the food is delicious.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind comments. We have tried to provide nice amenities for our guests. If we feel the need for something when we are there, we assume our guests would probably also like to have the same things. . I agree that it is a nice canal system with close access to the Shamrock Lakes, Saratoga, Kennedy and Alhambra Lakes. I thought that otter was going to dive into the boat the first time we met him while exploring! And as you mentioned it is convenient to be not so far from Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, Pine Island - the Matlacha Bridge, which I've heard is the busiest fishing bridge in Florida! Plus it is close and convenient to pizza, videos, grocery storres, pharmacies and fast food yet with the fence and trees you still have a set apart, private feeling when outside at the house. The hot tub is a perfect ending for the many perfect days in Florida! I hope you will come back again some time!

The property was clean and in great shape. The owners decorated the home in a cozy, inviting way.

  • 5 of 5

This property was all we hoped for and more. It was stocked with everything we needed for our vacation including a large supply of beach towels. The kitchen was especially nice, complete with all the things a cook might need. It was also great to have a washer and dryer available for use. The bedrooms were comfortable with 5 televisions throughout the house. We definitely plan to return in the future!

If your trying to decide. This is the one best place ever to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find everything as we expected or better. Simmons family are great with communication. If I sent message I heard back are received a call right away. Best communication I've ever had with owners of vacation rental before. House has plenty of room and is very clean. House has a few fishing poles, couple beach chairs, 9 beach towels, beach toys, pool toys and I left a couple extra good floats for pool or beach. Gas grill worked great. Hot tub & pool very clean & relaxing.Great view of sunrise from master bedroom or lanai. TV'S & wifi worked great. Everything we needed in kitchen to cook with plus some. Beds are very comfortable. We grabbed a coconut from out back :) House maintenance is well maintained. House is beautiful, & comfortable. Very close to Matlacha. We fished there several times & caught lots of fish. I found my new favorite beach. Think I should keep it a secret. Lots of shells and could see the bottom for a long ways out. 19th street Boca Grande. Very well worth the drive. No crowd not even on the 4th.Seen lots of fireworks from the back yard. Which is fenced and my beagle loved it. He loved the lanai too about as much as we did. Plenty of spices to cook with. Much better supplied than previous vacation rentals. You can't go wrong here. Loved it. Hope this house will be available when We get to return to area again.

Truly a Sunny Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home truly exceeded our expectations. The pool, hot tub and canal were wonderful, and on our second day of the week we never left the lanai. Cape Coral is a very nice town, and this section of the city was very residential and quiet. The owners clearly spend some time here, as almost any item you would need was available. When we got to the house, the pool heater was not working and the owners quickly addressed the situation. We are looking forward to staying here again, and were even house hunting for our own Cape Coral vacation home while here. Relatively short drives to Pine Island, Sanibel and Fort Myers made for great day trips. The Boat House at Cape Coral Yacht Club is a fun place to have dinner, as is Ford's Garage.

Wonderful week

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, clean ,spacious home. Loved the pool and spa had to pull the kids out or they would've stayed in all night.plenty of room for all of us to relax. Would recommend and will book again in the future. Spa has been upgraded as opposed to the pictures and also there was no use of the boat other than that everything was as described and as pictured.
