This beautiful vacation home is located in a desirable area of Cape Coral located on a freshwater canal with your own private pool in a screened lanai. Just imagine the peace and tranquility sitting on your own private dock while viewing wildlife in and around the canal. There are so many kinds of birds in the backyard along with turtles, otters and plenty of fish

Our home is located just 2 minutes away from a local boat slip and within minutes up the canal you can arrive at our dock where you have access to all the major chain of lakes in Cape Coral.

Casa del Sol is an appropriate name for our home as Cape Coral has on average 335 days of sunshine a year. Our home has been recently renovated from top to bottom with all new paint inside and out, newer appliances to meet your every need and lush landscaping that will give you that 'Florida' feeling every time you drive up to your vacation home.

There are 3 bedrooms with a King, Queen and two twin beds. All 3 bedrooms have newer televisions and the sitting room/office also has a sleeper queen sofa that would allow the villa to sleep up to 8 people

The pool has solar heating as well as a newer electric heater to keep the pool at those nice warm temperatures. A Bonus to our guests is NO additional electricity charges for the home or to heat the pool !!

Included in your rental are bikes, fishing poles, tackle, tennis racquets, beach toys, beach umbrellas, chairs and sand mats., soccer balls etc.

If you are looking for a very peaceful and relaxing vacation our home is exactly what you are looking for. As owners we take great pride in keeping our home up to date with the latest needs of our guests such as free wifi and unlimited long distance calling anywhere in the United States or Canada. We also take all of our guests needs into consideration for future guests by trying to stock our home with everything you need for a great vacation.

We have excellent property managers who are available as needed as well as myself and my wife who are only a phone call away in the event of a problem. We also have very reliable lawn & pool maintenance companies.

****** Please note that this is a non smoking home, smoking only allowed in lanai area *****

About Corri Steele

We have travelled to Florida for many years, staying in hotels or condos and renting homes. Our last 5 years before we purchased were staying in several homes in Cape Coral. We were able to discover the things we liked and did not like about rental villas . In 2011 we purchased our home and completely fixed up the home and filled it with brand new furniture , linens, kitchenware etc to make for a comfortable stay for our guests.

Eventually we would like to retire in our home but for now we want others to enjoy our little piece of paradise.

Corri Steele purchased this house in 2011

Why Corri Steele chose Mariner

You can not find a hotel in Cape Coral that gives you the amenities of our rental home for about $100/night. We believe that we have equipped our home for all needs of our guests whether it is for 1 week or 1 month. When you can wake up in the morning, have a coffee on the dock and watch Florida wildlife in your own backyard or even put your fishing pole out to catch lunch as you are in paradise.

Our home has everything you need for an enjoyable vacation to make you feel like you are at home !!

We have a very good Property Manager, lawn care & pool service to make your stay enjoyable. We know that you will feel right at home .

What makes this house unique

The main road that had all the restaurants and attractions use to be Cape Coral Parkway. Nearly 20 years later Pine Island Road has developed as the main hub of the Cape with new shopping, restaurants and entertainment very close to our home. In the next 10 years as Northern Cape Coral is developed, Pine Island Road will be the new main road for activity. Just recently 7 new restaurants and a Sam's Club have been built just a few minutes from our home

We think our home is in a perfect area that is quiet but very close to all amenities to make for a great vacation

Great Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Property were nice. Well groomed, great outdoor sitting are by canal allowed for bass and tilapia fishing, all kinds of wildlife to view ( ducks, river otters, Iguana, pelicans) House was exceptional with 3 bedrooms , large living room / dining room, separate eating area for breakfast, another large sitting area, very well stocked kitchen and entire house well furnished. Pool service weekly. Pool was just the right size and fully screened and a large covered outdoor dining sitting area. Mike was very accommodating with sincere follow up before and during visit to make sure everything was just right. Lots to see very close to house location and many great places to visit just a short distance away. Sanibel Island, Pine island just a short drive away, many resteraunts right on the canals, rum distillery almost walking distance from house and lots of nice golf course just a short distance from house. House in a very tranquil area of the canal system that looks out to canal and natural foliage. Highly reccommend

Thanks Corri for letting us to stay in your beautiful home for a few days. Weather was great, we ate outside everyday and enjoyed the pool, the dock and the wildlife out back. We left you a small gift for our appreciation. We would love to come back and spend more time one day

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Hi Mike & Corri, thanks for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home in Cape Coral. We really enjoyed how quiet it was out back by the canal and the wildlife is amazing. Like the previous review we saw otters, turtles, many species of birds and fish. We did catch some bass and a few gar but released them to get bigger the next time we come back.

Your home was spacious, very clean and even smelled nice when we walked in the door. Our grandkids were here for a few days and played in the pool for hours and really like eating out in the lanai over looking the pool and canal.

We would recommend your home to people of all ages. This home is very close to all shopping and restaurants, banking, beaches etc. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, 86 and sunny every day. Looking forward to our next stay !!

A beautiful location and comfortable house.

  • 5 of 5

We have very much enjoyed our stay here in Cape Coral at this lovely house.

Sitting by the canal out back can provide hours of wildlife watching. It is a secluded spot with woods across the canal where there are an array of herons, egrets, ducks, osprey, turtles and river otters. Bring your binoculars.

The location is also conveniently located to restaurants, shops and access to other nearby sites, like the Edison-Ford Museum in Fort Myers, Matlacha, and Sanibel Island. It is also a nice walking neighborhood. There are a lot of things to enjoy.

The house is very nice and big enough for six people to live comfortably, although most of the time we were just two people. Every amenity is provided from wi-fi, laundry, linens and towels, multiple tvs, and even a printer.

We are looking forward to our next visit here!

Owner's Response: Jan & Dave, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. I am sure you did not enjoy the journey back home to ice & snow, it has been a brutal winter. I also love the peaceful surroundings off the dock and the various wildlife. Our home will be waiting for you on your extended vacation next year. We will be down planting some new trees and bushes this summer and possibly an orange & lemon tree to go along with the banana trees. Thanks again Mike

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Corri, thanks for the great time in your home. Our family had a relaxing week and would love to come back again. the kids were in the pool most of the day and my son did plenty of fishing out back and caught some big ones. We released them as we don't eat much fish.

The kids also loved the bikes and we went out as a family many days. We rode down to the ball park to watch some games and the kids liked the BMX races at the park. We took several trips to Sanibel, what a gorgeous little island and we rented bikes there and went to the Island Cow for lunch as recommended

I am dreading our trip back to the snow, the weather was amazing. It rained for 3 hrs on the Sunday but every other day was sunny and warm. Your home was very inviting and everything looked great. My daughter enjoyed the luxury of a TV in her bedroom which she will never get at home :)

My only suggestion is to call Google to update the pictures of your house and neighbourhood on line. I can't believe what a difference between what we saw on line and when we got there. Your home & neighbourhood look great and I think they are building a couple of new homes at the end of your street. I would suggest some more pictures on-line or possibly a video of the home & neighbourhood

I am already missing my morning coffee on the dock looking at all the wildlife. We will especially miss the little family of baby otters, so cute !

Thanks again and hope to be back next year !

Mary & Mike

Owner's Response: Hi Mary & Mike, I am glad you had a great vacation. I always miss my morning coffee on the dock as well when I leave. I have contacted Google several times but they just keep saying it is on their list of changes. Good idea about a video, I did add a picture to the website of our home and the one on the left so people can see it was purchased and renovated like our place. Hope you had a safe flight home and maybe see you next year? Sorry, I can't cheer for the Packers, Steelers fans in this house :) Corri

We call Cape Coral 'Paradise' for so many reasons: year round sunshine and balmy breezes, beautiful, unspoiled beaches, scenic nature trails filled with wildlife and beautiful trees and plants, plentiful parks and green spaces, attractions and things to do for every interest and, of course miles and miles of waterways just made for boating, fishing or sightseeing. Cape Coral has over 400 miles of Canals, even more than Venice.

Nearby Sanibel and Captiva islands are renowned for their untouched quality. The main beach is rated as one of the best in the world. The islands are plush with unspoiled scenery with lots of wildlife, and beautiful beaches where shell hunting is an island obsession. The restaurants are quaint and having an amazing variety of food, seafood is the specialty of course !

Fort Myers beach is much more lively with lots of family restaurants and bars along Estero Boulevard. There are also a lot of attractions such as boat cruises, mini-golf, factory outlet shopping and the Estates of Edison & Ford.

Between November and March you have the added pleasure of manatee spotting and you can spy dolphins all year round. You can see Herons, otters, turtles, iguanas & many species of birds in your own backyard

There are numerous championship golf courses within a 10 mile radius.

The whole area is a boaters paradise, miles of beaches, shelling, diving, snorkeling, kayaking, charter/rental boats, sailing, tennis, and world class fishing are at your doorstep!? It's all here!

Nearby you'll also find crazy golf, SunSplash Waterpark with water slides, Mike Greenwells funpark for kids, Wildlife Refuge (where you can see alligators & other wildlife, casino cruises, and the flea market.
