Villa Contenta is a peaceful, private one-story Cape Coral home on a quiet street along the Spreader Canal, with spectacular sunset views over the Matlacha Wildlife preserve, and has quick boat access to the Gulf of Mexico and its many beautiful islands. The setting is ideal for boaters, anglers, and nature lovers, but also excellent for star gazers who can enjoy the wonderful star spangled western night sky without the typical light pollution in and around cities, as the city of Cape Coral is east of this vacation home.

This sophisticated, renovated home is perfect for a large family or group of friends. It offers four beautifully furnished bedrooms and three baths, a new, fully stocked kitchen with gorgeous granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, an eating nook with lanai view, a breakfast bar with seating, and an elegant dining room with seating for eight. There are two master bedrooms with "ensuite" baths and TVs, and two additional bedrooms that sleep two each. The master suite has a fantastic water view. It is furnished with a King bed, French Art Deco antiques, brand new memory foam mattress, a large flat screen TV, sliding doors to the lanai. The master bath features a Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower and a His and Her's cabinets with individual sinks and large mirrors. From the second master bedroom you also have a beautiful view of the lanai and beyond. It is furnished in modern Italian white lacquer, has a Queen bed with memory foam mattress, large flat screen TV and private entrance off the lanai. The third bedroom offers furniture in Tommy Bahama style with a Queen bed featuring a new pillow top mattress. The fourth bedroom has two Twin beds and a flat screen TV, and is ideally suited for younger kids. The living room has high ceilings and a lovely lanai and water view. It features comfortable contemporary furniture, a large flat screen TV and Blu-Ray player as well as plenty of books. There is a separate den with a small desk and printer/fax/scanner and a fainting couch, which can be converted into a bed for an unexpected overnight guest.

Overlooking the water is a large screened lanai with comfortable seating, a cabana bath, glass dining table, umbrella and a brand new BBQ gas grill. The saltwater pool is solar heated and equipped with an automatic pool cleaner. The owners just built a new dock with plenty of space for the whole family to sunbathe right at the canal. Of course, the new 10.000 lbs boat lift can be used by the tenants in case they rent together with this amazing vacation home a power boat from our boat rental department. It is only about 15 minutes by boat to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the many tropical island with white beaches and charming hidden coves. While you are riding out to the islands dolphins will playfully accompany you as if they would like to guide you to the right places.

But you may also stay right at the villa, enjoy the pool, work on your Florida tan, watch birds like herons, Pelicans, Egrets, Bald Eagles, Falcons, Ibis, Kingfisher and many more, or fish right off the dock (fishing rods are provided). For night fishing there is even an underwater fish light installed. Or just enjoy the many nearby activities such as golf (The Coral Oaks Golf club is just minutes away), many different restaurants, a fantastic water park and lots of shopping opportunities.

Beautiful house..quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We are 3 seniors who really enjoyed our 10 days at this house. It was very clean with great linens and very comfortable beds. The pool was warm and clean, , a great grill and a very nice kitchen to cook, which we utilized for many meals. The neighborhood was so very quiet, and the views were lovely.

All of our extra needs were met very timely and everyone was so friendly ..one of our nicer stays in Florida. I highly recommend Villa Contenta..

Das Haus ist sehr modern und schön eingerichtet.

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt etwas außerhalb aber mit dem Auto ist alles gut erreichbar. Genügend Platz und top ausgestattet. Abends draußen zu sitzen ist nicht empfehlenswert. Sehr viel Non-See-Ums, die einen stechen.

Owner's Response: Es freut uns, dass Ihnen das Haus Contenta gefallen hat. Was die No-See-Ums anbelangt, die leider durch die engen Maschen der Lanai-Screen kommen koennen, da hilft Insektenschutz, z.B. der von Johnson&Johnson, den es sowohl mit neutralem oder Citrus-Geruch gibt. Problem geloest. Cape Coral ist das Venedig Amerikas (Waterfront Wonderland) mit ueber 640 km Kanaelen. Wo Wasser ist, leben auch Insekten. Leider. Wir hoffen, dass Sie dennoch einen sehr schoenen Urlaub hatten.

Atemberaubend trifft hier wirklich zu. Fantastisch ausgestattetes Haus. Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Liebevoll durchdacht. Sehr sauber.Fantastische Lage mit Blick auf Mangroven. Manatees kommen hier vorbei geschnorchelt. Wer die Ruhe liebt, hat hier das Paradies gefunden. Urlaub leider immer zu kurz, aber das Haus speichern wir uns für weitere Urlaube.
