Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Cape Coral - Waterside

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8-9 (Crib)

Luxury Villa situated on a wide canal in the sought after SW Cape Coral. Only 40 minutes by boat to get into the Gulf of Mexico & the many miles of beautiful white sandy beaches or if you are driving then you can be on the beach within 10 minutes.

Your vacation home is in a quite road with it's own dock, 2800 sq ft of living area, large great room & 5 full width sliding doors open the property up to the lanai with L shaped Solar heated pool.

Very important for those with children the pool area is fitted with a perimeter alarm system (if required).

The master bedroom has direct access onto pool area, large en-suite luxury bathroom with walk in shower, jacuzzi bath & his & hers vanity units.

There are flat screen TVs and DVD players in Great Room & Master Bedroom & telephones in all rooms with free national calls, Cable and Wi Fi.

Fully air conditioned & all rooms have ceiling fans. Off street parking & large garage with electric door.

Beautiful kitchen with all modern conveniences.

Local Color: Though relatively new by most vacation town standards, Cape Coral has definitely gotten the hang of showing people a good time. It was built to serve as a haven for harried folks, and lives and breathes to ensure that stress is forgotten and anxiety is chased away. Cape Coral exists on a privileged stretch of the Gulf coast, is interwoven with roomy canals, and brims with recreation opportunities of all kinds. If you aren’t climbing the walls of your cubicle quite yet, read on for more reasons to stop by for a visit.

This is one of Florida’s fastest growing areas, meaning that there must be something attractive about living here or at least just visiting. Don’t think that this translates to teeming hordes of golfers and retirees all jammed together, however; Cape Coral is Florida’s third largest city geographically, so there’s plenty of room to spread out.

Southwest Florida is known for its delightful weather. Sunshine is practically constant, making each day comfortably, beautifully predictable. The summers can be a bit humid and quite rainy, but winters are near-perfect, especially if you’re escaping from a colder, crueler climate. These are the months when it makes the most sense to come on down, as nothing replenishes the body, mind and soul like stealing a few rays of sun when your body least expects it.

Cape Coral boasts some of the best recreation facilities in the state, which is saying a lot considering that Florida is one giant playground. Anything you can imagine, anything you’ve been craving that involves feeling light as a feather while flitting across the water, can be engaged in while you’re here. Jet skiing, sailing, fishing, snorkeling, water tubing, and many more diversions along these lines will have you feeling like a responsibility-free kid again.

intersperse your gulf time with onshore activities to get the full experience of Cape Coral. Golf courses and tennis courts will allow you to burn a few calories without a sense of obligation, and this is just the beginning. Rollerblading, biking, jogging and walking around the area will all further acquaint you with this happy town while recharging your batteries in the healthiest of ways. In other words, staying fit while you’re in Florida will be pretty painless, so come to think of it, try to bring your sneakers as well as your sandals.

Spend some time walking along the shoreline if you have an interest in wildlife. At low tide, you’ll have a good chance of glimpsing manatees and in late afternoons you’ll see birds of all kinds fishing for their dinner. Kayak tours will take you through Matlacha Pass back country and a couple of museums will further enlighten you as to what kinds of flora and fauna inhabit this vibrant habitat. Save a little time for beach-combing, too.

We had a wonderful family vacation. The house was spacious for our large family. We loved the area, traveled to Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach and locally in this wonderful upscale area. Everything was great. Thank You

Paradise in SW Florida

  • 5 of 5

The house has worked very well for us, clean, plenty of space and everything you need for a great vacation. The pool is a lovely temperature as Garry recently installed a new solar heating system, nice to plunge into after a hard day of retail therapy.

The area is really well served, on a practical level there are a number of large supermarkets, petrol stations, multiple fast food outlets and all other day to day requirements. Then there's the restaurants, Bubba's is a must and is only 5 minutes from the house, Yucatan at Fort Myers Beach is superb, these are just 2 of the many great eating places in the area. For take out Chinese give China Palace (Next to Publix on Cape Coral P'Way) a try, we loved it........4 times!

We prefer Fort Myers beach to others in the area, Captiva has some nice beaches as does Bonita Springs but we would go for Fort Myers as 1st choice, we rented jet ski's (wave runners) and had a "hoot" flying along the waves!. The kids spent a great day wake-boarding at Revolution Park (Bayshore/1st Avenue, just before I75) which I would highly recommend and costs just $25 per person including all equipment.

Miromar Outlets is a definite must do, just make sure you have plenty of cash or room on your credit cards! Coconut Mall is also good, Tangir is local and looks okay as well.

Rent a boat if you want to see the area from the river, worth doing although can be expensive when you add in the cost of fuel, allow $400 for the day. Dolphins every few hundred yards and we even saw a manatee.

We are going to Tampa Bay Rays vs Boston Red Sox tomorrow, with free post match concert from Train, huge band so the kids tell me.....I'll take their word for it.

I would recommend the house, the area and in particular it has been a pleasure getting to know Garry, who is a great owner to work with. Thanks Garry, the Symes' have had a great time in your house.

Owner's Response: Wow, Michael you nearly wrote a book ! I am so pleased that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our Villa and made such good use of the excellent local facilities, I think you have done more in 3 weeks than we have done since we got the house nearly 2 years ago, I think you will need another holiday when you get home. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and of course yourself, Michelle and the kids are welcome back anytime.

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 4 of 5

While the property is very pretty from the picture, it actually has a vacant lot on either side of it which makes it seem remote. It is not! It is in a very nice neighborhood, very quiet and private. We LOVED it! This is a bargain! It's a large home for just my husband and me, but when the grandchildren came to visit it filled up (7 more people) and we still had lots of room. The Cape Coral area is not your average "beach community". In fact, it has no beaches but it has so much more and there was an adventure everyday. The canal the house sits on provides it's own entertainment with the wildlife and the fish just waiting to be caught (and thrown back). An example of the size of the house...we had a fishing group, a pool group, and a sit inside the glassed in great room and chat group. The only reason I could not give this property 4 stars is the need for a little updating. Some of the linens need to be replaced and some chairs need recovering. The kitchen was fully equipped, except for an ice maker, and the pool was a joy! Since a trip to Florida doesn't require a lot of indoor time this is the perfect home. (It might be great for indoor time too but we were never indoors). Location is great, it has all the necessary items (pool toys, kitchen equipment, outdoor grill) that you could want. We would come back in a heart beat!

Owner's Response: Hi Pamela, thanks for your response and comments, since your stay I have been over to the house and carried out all necessary updates including a new 4 burner stainless steel BBQ, recovering the dining room chairs, fitting new slings to the patio chairs and loungers and several other minor repairs & painting. The ice maker wasn't broken but the water supply had been turned off under the sink so after restoring the feed its working fine now. There are a couple of small but nice beaches in Cape Coral, one at the Yacht club and another at Holmes Park but the best beaches are around a 30 min drive away at Fort Myers or on Sanibel or Captiva islands. Welcome back anytime.

We stayed at Mr Gores home for 2 1/2 weeks and thouraly enjoyed our time there. We had plenty of room to spread out and take full advantage of the home. It had everything we needed and used the gas grill several times and enjoyed the pool practically every day! It helped that we had perfect weather while we were there. It was helpful to also have a washer & dryer that we also used several times. Perhaps a few updates on the patio furniture as it seems to be getting quite worn out and the DVDs player. We even left a couple of pool floats there for others to enjoy like we did. The owner was easy to work with during the process of renting the villa ! Thanks for allowing us to rent .

Owner's Response: Hi Deb, I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay, I will be checking the exterior furniture when I am over in the villa in April and will replace it if required. Bit puzzled about the DVD player though as that was replaced in November. April 2016 update :- all patio furniture slings have been replaced, also checked DVD player and its all working ok. Welcome back anytime Best Regards Garry

Spacious Bright Villa in Great Setting

  • 5 of 5

First impression on arrival was that this villa was in a great location and the villa itself is well cared for and a lovely design. Very spacious with all bedrooms and en suite bathrooms around the main living area. Far too big for just us two but we love a heated pool and a dock to fish from!

Fishing was great and many fish were caught from the dock using the equipment available at the villa.

Cape Coral is actually a very nice place which has everything you need close by together with being near Fort Myers, Captiva and Sanibel Islands. Pine Island is really nice too which surprised us.

Lots of local restaurants nearby which were not of the usual franchise.

We had a week's holiday in this villa and we would definitely recommend to anyone.

Communication with the owner was minimal but all information required was provided. Booking was a breeze.

Fantastic home in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent the last 3 weeks in mr Gores home in Cape Coral, and we have enjoyed every minute of it! The home is perfect for a large family, or like us 2 smaller families staying together. The house has all you need to have a fantastic time, and both we and our kids really enjoyed the solar heated pool that was kept really klean by the "pool boy". When we arrived the hose was clean and welcomming! The house is located in a really nice place with great neighbours. The only thing we regret not doing was renting a boat with our stay. That would have given us access to the sea and the close by beaches a little easier. We will do this next time, because we will be returning:)
