Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

We worked very hard to make Villa Del Rio an oasis! Every part of our home, from the backyard lanai, with lovely romantic decor and one-of-a-kind amenities, to the bedrooms and baths, have a personal touch. The interior design of our home, Villa Del Rio, has been designed by Karen (my wife) to have all the allure of an exclusive getaway. We come here to relax.

Hidden away in Cape Coral's Yacht Club area - yet only minutes from the beach or downtown Cape Coral - Villa Del Rio is your ultimate Cape Coral vacation rental... come stay at our place! We hope that even the most well-traveled among you will OOH and AAH over all the little luxuries that await you at Villa Del Rio?

This is especially true of the over-water sun deck ... it features a private sitting & dining area, sun loungers to get that great Florida sun tan or watch the dolphin that regularly visit our boat dock and plenty of space to tie up your boat we highly recommend it! It is one of the things I miss the most when I am not in the Cape!

Those traveling with you will feel equally pampered in the four elegant guest bedrooms:

All have their own bathroom; we don't want to share everything. Two have King-size beds and two have Queen Size beds (one of which is downstairs),

But the real showstopper is the covered backyard oasis - the perfect retreat. We designed the yard and living area to blend into one another. We spend so much time here... it is just lovely to curl up on the couch. Watch your kids splash around in the sparkling pool as you sip cocktails. The garden is lushly landscaped and has a cool, private feel.

As night falls, gather around the granite-topped outdoor dining table and savor an alfresco dinner right off the grill. You will normally find me in the spa with a glass of wine, enjoying the night sky.

Prefer to eat inside? Karen is one amazing cook and has created an awesome kitchen. She always spoils us with great food. We are sure someone in your group will want to take advantage of this great kitchen and all its amenities! We also have an elegant indoor dining area adjoined to the formal sitting room which overlooks our pool & garden. A holiday dinner here is simply perfection.

Don't take a gamble on lesser accommodations! Come and stay at our place! Give yourself the vacation you truly deserve by booking our magical villa today! Contact us to discuss booking the house, to check on the calendar as well as availability... as we may have some flexibility. Our rates range from $300 (two guests) to $360 (Eight Guests) a night... lowers if you can remain and enjoy for a bit longer!

If you are interested in booking or would like any more information please contact us as we are here to assist in making your vacation one to remember.

owner/property manager purchased this villa in 2006

Why owner/property manager chose Yacht Club

We found Cape Coral in 1999 & fell in love with the area. It was so relaxing & with is 400 miles of canals & easy access to the Gulf it was our dream to own a home there. In 2006 we built what is now Villa Del Rio. Renting our home has been a fantastic experience — largely because of all the interesting guests we’ve hosted! We just love to hear how they have enjoyed staying at our home in the Cape & how relaxing they found the whole experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we had at your home in Cape Coral. Your home has an exceedingly comfortable feel about it and everyone is right at home immediately. The decor is charming and I got the feeling you had done some redecorating during your visit earlier this winter. The pool and dock 'are worth the price of admission'. What beautiful areas and unbelievably quiet. We spend many a late afternoon enjoying a glass of wine and the setting sun from there. I wish I was back in Cape Coral.Sandy

Absolutely wonderful! Highly recommended to all who want time in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week here. Our family came together for a week of relaxation, fishing, sun and memories. We loved the beautiful , spacious home and our time together swimming in the pool and on the lanai. We caught a sawfish and stingray off the dock, saw a manatee swim by and had visits from the most beautiful iguana. We hope to come back soon to enjoy this piece of paradise. Thanks for sharing your home with us Kevin and Karen!

Room for everybody

  • 5 of 5

The home was fantastic. The lanai was out of this world. There was seating for 19 set in 3-4 different areas..the big table outside the door, an area with a couch, chairs, ottamon and table. Need some sun? Plenty of reclining lounge chairs around the pool. Cooking out is a treat with a built in grill with vent, located next to a bar. Not to mention the table and chairs on the Boat dock. Need some space...a lovely den waiting for you.

Everything was clean and well cared for. The kitchen was fully equipped for cooking, baking and grilling. It truly was a perfect spot for our sibling reunuion.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have rented other homes in Cape Coral and this smartly decorated and well maintained home is the best. Great pool and dock areas with fabulous views. Positioned on Dolphin canal, you have quick access to great restaurants and the bridge to Ft. Myers. We will be back!

The property is very impressive with a beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

The home is beautiful, quiet, and spacious with a very pretty view of the waterway. My family saw dolphins by the dock and a large iguana in the property's trees! We so enjoyed the pool and the spa (might want to have the heater switch checked as it kept triggering off). The ants were a bit "pesky", however the property manager had arranged an exterminator after our departure. The owner, Kevin, was extremely helpful and patient with our questions! Absolutely beautiful home in a beautiful neighborhood, would definitely love to return one day!

Our dream home is located in the quiet Yacht Club area of Cape Coral. The Yacht Club area is one of the most sought after areas in Cape Coral! This neighborhood is bursting with energy with bike riders, walkers, runners, boaters, water lovers, and folks of all ages who are looking for a wonderful place to call home.

The Yacht Club was built in 1958 and is one of the original landmarks of the City. Located directly on the Caloosahatchee River, minutes from famous beaches, in a beautifully landscaped setting, boaters and residents enjoy a bustling neighborhood complete with a Community Park, waterfront restaurant complete with entertainment, public beach, fishing pier and community pool. Many events are held here including 'Sunset Celebrations' which take place the first Wednesday of every month and feature 40-50 local arts & crafts vendors, live music and gorgeous SW Florida sunsets over the water. This area has always been one of the most desirable areas to live.
