About the Property
*****Please note under my rates section that I only rent out full months in the Peak season, ie: All of January or all of Feb & March**********
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 2 DVD players, Roku & xbox. . 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 keep the house well stocked with basic amenities, 4 bikes, tennis racquets, soccer ball, coolers, 4 beach chairs, 2 lounge chairs, 4 dock chairs, beach mats, plenty of beach towels, fishing equipment and more !
We are south of Pine Island Rd which has many restaurants, bars & shopping. It is also a quick exit without tolls in and out of Cape Coral. The Walmart grocery is only a few minutes away.
We are also very close to the Matlacha pass where you can experience unique dining opportunities as well as put your boat in the Gulf or fish on the pier or just go down and watch a beautiful sunset. From there you are on to Pine Island which has some great fishing spots as well as some fun little shops.
We love our home as we are in a full neighbourhood with great neighbours which gives you that small town safety but we also are very quiet with 2 empty lots right behind us with trees and land that houses so many birds and different Florida wildlife
Why Kids Love It
I know when my kids were young they would swim in the Pool all day. With solar and electric heat you can set your temperature to your liking and enjoy the pool in a screened lanai free of bugs. With an outdoor table and seating for 6 and a gas grille you can spend most of your day outdoors in and out of the Florida sunshine. We have several pool toys and floaties for kids.
We have 4 large bikes and 1 small one that kids can ride around and explore the neighbourhood or the eagle skate park that is a few blocks away.
We have TV's in every room which I know kids love as well as 2 DVD players, Roku for Netflix, youtube videos and a xbox with several games.
There is also tennis racquets as well as a soccer ball.
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, Cranes 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, Ft Myers dog track and the flea market. Tours of the everglades are only half an hour away.
Attractions Within Walking Distance
You are very close to Sunsplash or Mike Greenwells, 10-15 min walk.
For adults there is a small rum factory only a few minutes away called Wicked Dolphin where you can get a tour, try samples and purchase local products.
There are several bars and restaurants within walking distance
Favorite Places To Eat
There are dozens of restaurants up and down Pine Island Road from Golden Coral to Outback to fast food, Chick fil A and Steak and Shake, Wendys, Taco bell etc.
For a small quaint seafood experience try Bert's bar on Matlacha pass. Rumrunners is a local favourite in Cape Coral and we love the Island Cow on Sanibel Island
You pay a $2 toll every time you enter Cape Coral when you come over the bridge at Cape Coral Parkway or the mid bridge at Veterans. If you come in via Pine Island roll there is no toll.
I also have a few good fishing holes for back canal salt water fishing, just let me know if you are interested and I can point you in the right direction .

You can not find a hotel in Cape Coral that gives you the amenities of our rental home for about $120/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 .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 main road

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: 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.
Why this property? Our home is clean and filled with nice furniture for your stay. Depending on the time of year you come it can get quite cold at night where solar heat in your pool does not cut it, Our electric heater keeps those warm temperatures up.
Our canal hosts plenty of wildlife from herons, ducks and cormorants to turtles, iguanas and a family of playful otters. Our canal is stocked with bass, tilapia, to gar and crappies. All good eating right from your own backyard !
We have amazing caretakers of our home from our Property manager Allen to our Pool guy Steve and our lawn maintenance man Cory, all there year round to keep the place looking great.

Guestbook comments from the owner:
We really enjoyed our stay at this house! The house was clean and had everything we needed. Beach chairs, cooler,towels, bikes.. We enjoyed the pool and the outside seating area a lot. It is a very quiet neighborhood and very private. Shopping & Restaurants only minutes away. Most days we went to the Yacht Club beach Cape coral (15 min drive). It is a small beach but close and Parking is free. Sanibel Island is around 40 min drive (depends on traffic)and parking can be a challenge,also it comes with a cost of 5 $ per hour. But it is worth of all the shells you can collect here. We went to the lighthouse and bowman beach and rented bikes to explore the island. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation this home is perfect and the contact with the owner was very nice. Thank you again for letting us stay at your house. We didn't want to leave! Marco and family !
We loved our stay at Casa De Sol. The house is very spacious, located in a quiet subdivision and has everything you could possibly need. All you need to pack is your toothbrush and clothes. They have everything from beach chairs, Beach umbrellas, cooler and bikes to ride around the area. The kids loved swimming in the pool and fishing in the canal. We saw multiple turtles, ducks and a mama sea otter with her cubs. The location is near everything from grocery stores, clothing stores and pretty much every kind of restaurant you can think of. There’s a great putt putt golf coarse 5 minutes away and about 15 minutes away from a nice sandy beach with a wonderful pier to fish or see beautiful sunsets from. We throughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Casa De Sol to our friends and family. Mike and Cori are excellent hosts who thought of everything you could possibly need for a fantastic vacation. They are quick to respond if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you for a wonderful vacation! We were sad to leave.
If you want to relax this is the home for you. We spent hours on the dock drinking coffee, eating meals while enjoying the birds, fish and turtles. Peaceful is the word that describes this home. The owner has decorated the inside in tasteful beach decor. Each room was very inviting. The master bedroom had a very comfortable bed with a cool ceiling fan above it. Nice tiled shower with a shaving foot rest in it. The closet space was as big as a small room. Great tvs in each room. The kitchen had everything a cook would need. You could serve food to the pool area from a sliding window in the kitchen. Nice comfy table and chairs in the pool area. Big clean gas grill by the pool. Rain or shine you could eat there. New beach chairs and umbrella in the garage. This home was very easy to find. We ate out every day with great restaurants only 10 to 15 minutes away. There were only two of us but this home would be great for a large family. We are spoiled and never stay in hotels. You will be happy with your choice if you stay here. We came home refreshed and happy.
Thanks Mike for letting us stay in your home recently. It was a pleasure to be back again and we had such nice weather. My husband did plenty of bass fishing and took our small boat out almost every day. I just enjoy reading my book on the dock in peace and quiet. I am glad you had no large damage from the hurricanes last year, the place looked great ! Hopefully we will get down this way again next year. Lori & Dean
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 Lily & Victor
Property was very 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, herons) 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
This was a great house, has everything you need. The fresh water canal was full of fish and turtles, many birds and so quiet. My kids had fun in the pool and enjoyed biking around the neighbourhood. Thanks Mike for all your help everything was great!!
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 !! Elva & Bill
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!
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 :) 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 Green bay, Go packers !!
Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any additional charges outside of rental, cleaning and tax?
There is an additional fee for extra people beyond 4 persons. Pets are permitted on a case by case basis and at a cost of $50/weel
What is your cancellation policy
Once we have settled on the rental dates and price I will email out rental agreement that details out house rules, cancellation policy, payment terms and other misc information.
Is smoking allowed in your house
No, our house is smoke free. Smoking may be permitted in the lanai but we would prefer to rent to non-smokers.
Cash Del Sol is a wonderful property, we booked for 3 months and sadly because of Corona we had to come back to Canada early. It felt like home from the time we entered until the time we left. The home was clean, comfortable and relaxing. Being able to open the master bedroom, dinning room and kitchen onto the pool area gave a completely open feeling. Breakfast around the pool with the sun rise but still under the screened lanai was always a treat as well as supper with a great BBQ. Always a view of the water of the canal and trees in the rear offering privacy as well as privacy on both sides of the home made swimming in the pool very enjoyable. A car is essential in Cape Coral as you have to drive to get to any attractions including the beach. Mike, the owner, was always available and helpful by phone. We would come back here again.
