Overview

About the property

Villa Desoto is the perfect home for boaters seeking an upscale residence with un-matched quick access to the Gulf of Mexico. Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac in the very popular yacht club area of Cape Coral, the home is very private and luxuriously appointed throughout, from the gorgeous custom-made kitchen to the granite and tumbled stone clad bathrooms.

On stepping through the lushly landscaped front entrance, guests will feel like they have just arrived at their own private oasis. The home has a spacious and airy feel, accented with modern tropical style décor. The first living area has wonderful views over the south facing pool area and combines a quiet seating space with a casual and cozy formal dining area.

This initial living area leads onto the grand open plan Kitchen furnished with stainless steel appliances, custom-made wooden cabinets and finished with a very large granite clad island. The gourmet kitchen overlooks the extremely comfortable main family room and ultimately, the private screened pool area and personal boat dock.

Featuring 3 bedrooms, the Master Bedroom comes complete with king size bed, flat screen cable TV and private Master Bathroom. In keeping with the rest of the home, the Master Bathroom has been decorated to the highest of standards with rich granite, jetted bathtub and large walk in shower clad in tumbled stone. A further 2 guest bedrooms feature a queen size bed and a 2 twin beds. A rather unique feature of this lovely home is that all bedroom suites have large sliding glass doors to the sunny pool area, thus providing lots of light and great access to the lanai.

Stepping outside to the south facing sun-drenched screened lanai, guests can enjoy the oversized deck area with south facing sparkling heated pool. There is outdoor seating for 6 so guests can enjoy alfresco dining. With outdoor waterfront living and relaxation so high on the priority list in sunny Cape Coral, the home is also equipped with a gas barbecue and iced drinks cart. Stepping down to the private dock, guests can spend some quiet time lounging under the tiki hut down by water's edge. A perfect spot for morning coffee or an evening cocktail. The lushly landscaped grounds including established mango trees bearing huge sweet mangos in July are the finishing touch to your own piece of paradise that Florida is famous for and provides privacy and a feeling of tropical tranquility.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We've used this management company on three occasions now in the last 12 months. The villa we previously rented was unavailable (How dare the owners decide to move back in permanently in that one!) On this most recent trip so we asked Keely what was available and this one was highlighted. We stayed approx four weeks and had no problems with the villa. It is situated great for those who may have/ or rent a boat as access to the open river and main waterways is very close. (Some locations in Cape Coral you may spend 20 minutes chugging at 5kts to get anywhere near this position) Having said that, we didn't use a boat on this occasion but I would recommend it if you do. No one seems to walk anywhere in the US but we found this villa was within easy walking distance (10 mins) of a small beach over looking the main waterway. (Cape Coral Yacht Club) There was also the Boathouse restaurant/ bar there which became a regular haunt as I didn't have to drive there to see the fantastic sunsets and have a few beers. The beach was very clean and would suit families with young kids who maybe didn't want a long day at one of the Gulf beaches. The main beaches, Fort Myers/ Sanibel Island etc are between 25 and 40 minutes drive away depending on traffic. However this location is about as good as you're going to get to reach the main access roads and the bridge over the river towards Fort Myers. Most of the local restaurants aren't too far away either. 4 to 5 minute drive, or about a 1.5 mile walk. As for the Villa it's at the end of a cul de sac, has no passing vehicle traffic, large comfortable rooms, big TV, and the kitchen has everything you'll need. I spent a lot of time drinking beer and catching fish off the decking area out back, or lounging around in the sun on one of the very cushioned loungers (They're usually so hard/ nasty in many villas!) The pool is a good size too. I think you'd benefit from this villa more if you have a boat, but we enjoyed our stay a lot and will be returning. As for this management company, we didn't experience any problems, (nor have we with previous rentals) however Keely was calling with advice and updates re an imminent hurricane which luckily stayed out of reach. It was that kind of thing which leads you to believe they are looking out for your interests. (I have experienced some quite indifferent management companies on prior visits to Cape Coral) So yes, I'd recommend a stay here. Only please try and avoid any dates that I want.

Excellent..!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful fortnight in this lovely home. Our party of 6 included a 10 and a 5 year old who very much enjoyed the swimming pool and fishing from the spacious dock. The comfortable sun beds on the dock are great for maximum sunshine, and being south facing, we saw plenty of that.

The house was very well equipped with everything you'll need. TV had plenty of channels to choose from with a number of sports channels which also showed live EPL & Champions League football (Soccer) matches.

Everything is easy to get to with plenty of shops and bars a short distance away, the Yacht club is approx half a mile.

The service from the owners was excellent from booking right up to departure. Very easy to communicate with and replied instantly when we noticed a minor issue.

We have stayed in Cape Coral a number of times and we agreed that this home is the best we've had. Should we return to the area again, will we look first at this property.

Thank you Keely & Neil

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

A superb villa with everything you need and more. Left on Oct 22, 2017 for a stay in Oct 2017 The Villa is in an excellent location close to eateries beaches and fabulous views. The amenities are fully loaded, the master bedroom has a fabulous view and a bathroom to delight you with a jacuzzi bath that has relaxation written all over it. The maintenance of the property is first class it is impeccable and spotlessly clean. We loved sitting on the boat jetty seeing the locals in their canoes each morning, and the wildlife was amazing. Summed up it was a real big WOW by the way gents my wife was speechless there was nothing out of place.
