About the property

4 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Step through the front door, kick off your shoes and let your Cape Coral vacation begin! Villa Del Rio sits at the end of a cul-de-sac, offering seclusion and quiet while still being close to it all. It backs up to the 200-foot-wide Dolphin canal, from where you can reach the Gulf of Mexico by boat in just 10 minutes.

Unwind in the Florida Sunshine

Pour yourself a drink and head out to the large lanai with outdoor kitchen, BBQ grill and bar. The sparkling south facing swimming pool helps you cool off in the Florida warmth and a large patio table seats eight for dining al fresco. After a quick dip, recline on one of our waterside deck loungers and watch for a pod of dolphins swimming by.

All the Comforts of Home

Feeding your hungry crew is easy in the large modern kitchen, boasting crisp white cabinets and black granite counters. There's plenty of room for everyone, with a eight-person dining table, plus room for two more at the kitchen island.

After dinner, gather in the cozy living room to enjoy good conversation on the handsome Tommy Bahama rattan sofas. The media room features a 55” flat-screen TV and leather couches for movie nights.

When it’s time to turn in, the house sleeps eight comfortably in four bedrooms. Each bedroom offers privacy, space and its own en-suite bathroom. One of the bedrooms is downstairs, ideal for elderly guests who don’t want to tackle the stairs.

Bedroom Configuration

- Downstairs, 1 queen

- Upstairs, 2 kings and 1 queen

Bathroom Configuration

- Downstairs, 1 full with walk-in shower and 1 powder room

- Upstairs, 3 full including 1 with walk-in shower and 2 with tub and shower combination

Explore the Neighborhood

Completely unwind in this relaxed and laid-back town, boasting 400 miles of canals and a plethora of dining, shopping and entertainment options, most within a 5-minute drive of the villa.

Just a two-minute drive away is a sandy beach, part of the Cape Coral Yacht Club. The club also offers public tennis and racquet ball courts, boat slip, fishing pier,playground and the newly opened Boathouse Tiki Bar & Grill, the best place to eat & drink on the beach!

Why We Love Our Villa

We spend eight weeks a year here recharging and unwinding. The quiet location, the warm sun, and the waterside location are great, but it's the outside oasis that we love most... Karen loves to curl up on a couch and read a book in complete peace , while Kevin drops a fishing line in the water and tries to catch the big one that got away last time. It's wonderful!

Why owner/property manager chose Cape Coral

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 manager

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

Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many homes via VRBO and this home by far exceeded our expectations. The home is easy to get to, the location is private and the outdoor pool area was enough to entertain the entire family for the week. The home had plenty of space for us, with bathrooms and TV's in every room. The neighbors were nice and the management service was accommodating. The only issue was the dishwasher was out but that is normal wear and tear. We didn't let that take away from building wonderful memories and having a great time. The owner is very responsive and has a beautiful home. It will be hard to get my parents to go somewhere else. Everyone had a fantastic time.

Villa Del Rio feels like your own private resort.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a vacation at Villa Del Rio. The house is beautiful and the backyard is a blast. As you walk in the house and look out the back doors, you see a beautiful, large pool and a large dock overlooking the river. Fishing was high on our list of activities. My son caught numerous catfish off the dock and we saw dolphins just a few feet from the property. Several fishing rods are provided. Sanibel and Captiva are an easy drive and we even made it to a Tampa Rays game. There are numerous options for dining out and several supermarkets only minutes away. We did not use the boat on the property but we did charter a boat with a captain to catch some bigger fish. We cooked snapper on the grill and made tacos for dinner from one of our catches! The restaurant and bar at the Yacht Club was a nice, quiet place for a drink and a meal overlooking the river. Fresh mangoes every morning falling from a neighbor's tree were an added bonus. The property is landscaped beautifully, providing complete privacy. The owner of the villa, Kevin, and the management company made the whole process easy. We highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to do a review. Both Karen & I are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Del Rio.

I felt the property was perfect. We really enjoyed grilling out and sitting outside the whole time

This house had everything you could ask for in a vacation home. The location was very convenient to everything and being on the water really help things. My daughter had a smile on her face every day in the pool. Thank you for allowing us to stay and please consider us next year as well

Summer Vacation 2016 Cape Coral FL

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the Cape Coral area and the Rental Villa. My girls really liked the swimming pool and the hot tub. The pool area was very relaxing, we ate all of your meals outside and it was a great place to be. The house accommodated my family and our small dog Ellie. It was a very roomy and quite spacious. It was a great central point to be and the drive to most attractions were easy to get to from Cape Coral. We will rent again from the home owners next time we are in the Cape Coral area. Thanks for allowing us to you use your home for our summer vacation.

Thank you for your positive comments. Both Karen & I are so glad to hear that you & your girls enjoyed your stay at Villa Del Rio! The pool area is great with its southern aspect, water views & lots of space. I hope your next stay is just around the corner.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. Set up perfectly for our family. The pool, the dock and the beach which was not to far away were great. I would recommend renting a boat. You get to see a lot of the area by boat. And the fishing was pretty good. Thank you Kevin for sharing your lovely home with us.

One of the best homes we stayed in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Cape Coral for about 20 years now, renting different places almost every year. This villa is one of the top homes we have come across. We loved the openness of the space, very tasteful interior, great location for boating (you're on the river in 5 minutes) and attention to detail (electric shutters etc). The booking and "on-boarding" process was super easy - great communication with the owner back and forth - and the local management service took good care of us. I would be hard pressed to come up with anything major that I would improve in this villa, would I own it. We'll definitely be back!

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.
