Perfect house, perfect location.
Wishing we could stay longer, was our only problem!! ha The house is modern, comfortable, has everything you will need and want. Kitchen has all the gadgets and updated appliances, although we used the gas grill when cooking, and only cooked some breakfasts on the stove. Lots of nice outdoor plastic plates, cups, beer and wine glasses etc for using outdoors, which we really appreciated. Bedrooms are very comfortable and spacious, esp primary bedroom, is very large wi. Living room is also spacious and comfortable. We never used the indoor dining, as we loved to sit outside for every meal, and there is a large outdoor table and chairs with pads. Would have loved an outdoor conversation set, as I admit I am a bit old to sit at a table and chairs over long periods!!! ha!. There are 6 lounge chairs and bar/stools but we did not use. This brings us to the large covered lanai and fantastic pool. We spent every afternoon and evening in the pool, and 90% of our time in the house was spent in the outdoor area. The gardens around the enclosed (caged) pool is so serene and beautifully planted, it was heaven to be outside as much as we could (we are from cold Ontario!). The back yard/pool is very secluded and private. For us this was the best part of our vacation, being at home with a pool. Although the Southwest of Florida has been devastated by Hurricane Ian, and many local businesses are starting to open up once again. The owner has the house in perfect repair. We found the house location to be perfect for a quick trip into Fort Myers for Costco runs and other shopping, and location was great for being central for touring the area. We visited local eateries and patios for sunsets and happy hours to support local businesses opening up once again. You can find lots of local news and information on-line. The community of Cape Coral is very friendly and interactive on-line. We found Cape Coral an easy location for venturing out to explore other communities: Marco Island, Naples, Siesta Key, Venice, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Fort Myers, Sarasota. We even got the high speed ferry from Fort Myers to Key West, it had been on hold since the hurricane (Key West Express, about 1/2 hour from house). One of the best convieniences for us was the easy interaction with the house rental company and the rental home owner. We did have a few questions, and they were quick, responsive and helpful. Thank you all. I hope I will have the opportunity to rent again.

What a great villa! Everything is in tip-top shape and modern. The villa is spacious with a beautiful garden and a swimming pool. There is plenty of space to relax and sit in the sun. The hot tub completes it!If you get up early you can admire the owls. From Cape Coral it is a good drive to the Ever Glades, Fort Meijers and the outlet mall. These are some of the places we went to.Do you want a carefree holiday and maximum enjoyment. Then look no further. This villa makes your holiday complete.

You were fantastic guests and we look forward to seeing you again someday.Ail the best James and Fran
Wonderful Gulf stay!
We would definitely recommend and stay here again! James was wonderful to work with, fast and clear communication. The property managers Manuel and Sue were excellent, polite, and fast to respond to the few issues we had. The house was clean, as pictured, and had everything you could need. The screened lanai was fabulous with the large pool, nice hot tub, plenty of seating, grill, lighting, outdoor shower and hook game. It was nice having a garage to keep the car cool, and a garden hose for cleaning sand off of shoes and beach gear. Very close to Ft Myers Beach and Sanibel Island. We really enjoyed watching the neighborhood endangered burrowing owls, too!

Simply The Best
20 out of 10 rating!!! My family and I stayed at this house for 10 days and cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. Everything was perfect! From booking to departure we were so happy with our choice. The house is super clean and equipped with everything needed for a comfortable relaxing vacation. The backyard pool area is the best! Very private and the pool and hotub are set at the perfect temperatures. This house is close enough to the beach for easy quick and access yet far enough from the noisy, tourist areas. In addition to the house the owners were great at communicating and giving insight on local activities, restaurants, golf courses etc. If you are looking for a vacation spot in the Fort Myers/Cape coral area look no further than Villa Paradise! It is the spot!!!

Villa Paradise Island property located in South West Cape Coral
We stayed at Villa Paradise Island located in South West Cape Coral in mid-April 2021. The pictures of this home do not do it justice! it is simply beautiful and very well equipped. Outside is a tropical private paradise with a lovely pool and relaxing hot tub that lights up with Edison bulbs at night.The entrainment center features a giant TV, around 75 inch’s perfect for sports and movies, all three bedrooms also have their own televisions. One feature that was very much appreciated was the workstation and extremely fast internet in front of the bay window, it was a great place to catch up on emails and a few things back home.The master bedroom is separated from the rest of the house with a fireplace and nice attached bath, the bed was also very comfortable. The two other bedrooms are located across the house with its own bath and a sliding door to close off that area from the main living area that makes a great privacy addition for additional guests.James and Fran the owners made everything flow well from check in to check out and made sure we were satisfied with our stay. The property managers and other staff (landscapers, cleaners, pool service) were all friendly and did a fantastic job.Everything you need from essentials like groceries and gas is nearby and local attractions from golf to beaches and nightlife are only a few minutes away. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend this property!

"An absolute pleasure to stay in this superb home"
A wonderfully clean home that is full of everything you need for a great holiday. A superb in-house entertainment system, a terrific pool and a magical hot tub experience are just three of the highlights you can enjoy in this house, all in a quiet location that is close to all the local amenities with the local beaches just a short drive away. The owners, James and Fran are an absolute pleasure to deal with and I will defintely be recommending them to all my friends and family in the future. Thx for a great time.

Hi Mike, thank you for the wonderful review. We are always happy that our guests enjoy the home, as you know we work very hard to make it standout and provide the best vacation experience possible. You were a wonderful guest and always welcome back !
Spectacular Vacation Home!
My fiancé and I stayed in this rental for 2.5 months while visiting family in the area. We absolutely loved having a private pool in the backyard where we could cool off in the summer heat. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked with cookware and plenty of dishes and silverware. We spent many evenings playing board games and doing puzzles on the giant dining room table. The JUMBO TV was extremely awesome in the living room when we just wanted some quiet TV time.The area is about 15 minutes North of Ft. Myers, and there is no shortage of things to do around the house. From this house you can get to multiple grocery stores, Target, Pharmacies within minutes. There are some very amazing restaurants as well as quick fast food options in Cape Coral all within a short drive.The neighbors were all extremely quiet, and aside from the fireworks on the 4th of July, it felt like we were the only ones around. We are definitely going to try to come back next summer again! The rental company and owner are incredibly nice, and quick to respond!

Thank you for being wonderful guests and the kind review. Hopecto see you guys and again. Take care. Janes and Fran.
Not new to the Fort Myers/ Cape Coral area but it was my first time staying at this Villa. Beautiful place. Couldn’t get over how well maintained it was and the attention to detail with things like the little information booklet about the bars and restaurants in the area down to the bar and games in the pool area. It felt like staying at a resort. This Villa is close to everything. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our next vacation here has already been reserved

Great Vacation Home
Amazing vacation home!!! Not only is it close to absolutely everything you need but you’ll actually never want to leave!! This place has it all, tons of room, pool, hot tub and plenty more amenities. I will be going every year with my family, there’s more then enough room for all of us and more!! Very clean and one of my favourite parts was being able to fully open the house to the back yard. Highly recommend to anybody!

Nice well kept home! Screened in pool area was a great spot to hang out in the late afternoon to evening. Close to tons of great restaurants... loved Duffy’s for Sunday afternoon sports and finger foods. Not far to beaches that we could always find a spot to park for a few bucks. Another plus of the home is well equipped kitchen to have those simple dinners you seek on lazy evenings. We are definitely looking to return.

A perfect home for a getaway to Florida to relax. This house was incredibly clean and and well furnished. The bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable. Everything needed for cooking onsite. Awesome location (grocery store, restaurants and bars a short distance away). The patio/pool area was amazing with an outdoor grilling area. Wonderful pool and hot tub! Central to not one but two benches. Not one issue throughout our weeks stay. We would stay again in a heartbeat!
