About the owner: We are Minnesota residents and have been going to Cape Coral/Fort Myers for more than 20 years now. Please feel free to reach out with questions, we are glad to help, even if you don't book with us.
We also own an annual rental in Cape Coral as well as this vacation property. Our tenants at that property are into their 5th year with us.
We enjoy the area and like to share our local favorites too. We feel like everyone that stays at Coral Palms are not just our guests, but become our fast friends.
We try to offer our guest great value, and therefore we are not listed on major sites that charge renters additional fees. We don't have a management company, and we don't charge extra for additional guests that might join you on your stay like many other vacation rentals. Honestly we prefer to get our guests just through referrals and friends, and prefer to work with people directly as much as possible. We like meeting new people, and talking with people on a more personal level. Technology like texting, emails, and websites like this are great for bringing us together, but we still think a phone call is a lost art and appreciate the perspective you get with a phone conversation versus just texting and emails. Thank you for considering your next vacation with us. We sincerely appreciate it and are grateful for the opportunity to host your next vacation!

Why this property? This house is very clean, updated and has such great amenities and the location is truly unbeatable. Places like Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island are generally faster to get to by water from here and parking is much less of a hassle by boat. We'd encourage everyone to take advantage of the access from the canal to enjoy why everyone loves Florida; sunshine and the water.
If you feel like we should have something else on the property that guests will enjoy, please feel free to reach out to us. We would love to hear from you on what would help make your stay and others, even more enjoyable.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you provide boat rentals?
Currently we do not personally provide a boat rental service, but there are several close to Coral Palms and their information is located in the Coral Palms handbook in the house along with lots of other great information provided. Some of them will let you keep the boat right there at Coral Palms in the canal during the rental period! The boat lift is not included in the rental at this time.

Cancellations must be sent (email) or delivered (letter) by 11:59 pm in the property's time zone.
What about Corona/ Covid-19 related issues and this property?
Our property is professionally cleaned. We have extended our times between check-in and check-out to allow for a more thorough deep cleaning. This also has increased our cleaning fee because it takes longer now to clean the property correctly. We do not charge above and beyond what the company charges us.
Lastly, unless there is a mandate for us to be closed; we are open. If you are worried about virus related issues, we understand, but we can only control to the best of our ability, what is here at Coral Palms.

We had a great family vacation here. Six of us stayed very comfortably, enjoyed the pool and outside dining. We used the kayaks for a canal boating trip which was a fun adventure. Hosts were very responsive and easy to communicate with, great Tiki bar just down the road. Wonderful, we will be back.

Coral Palms gave our family of 6 plenty of room to spread out and relax. The house, pool, canal and property is beautiful. The house had everything we needed and more. We spent a lot of our time floating in the pool and hanging on the patio. It is centrally located in Coral Palms, making it easy to visit the surrounding beaches. Crystal & Joel were great to communicate with and quick respond.

Amanda, Thanks for staying at Coral Palms! We were happy to have you as guests and are glad you enjoyed your time on our property. Come back anytime! Joel & Crystal Kilichowski
Perfect house for a winter get away!
My husband and I have rented several homes in the Cape Coral area and this home has by far been the best. The location is excellent, the home is landscaped beautifully, and the home owners have been so obliging! We made great use of the bikes, the kayaks, and the beach equipment. We would recommend this home as a perfect spot for your vacation.

We appreciate you as guests, and have enjoyed having you back every year.
My husband and I along with our 2 english bulldog girls stayed at Coral Palms from mid-June through late September 2021. It was a working remote away from home time for us. We loved the location. The house was well stocked with everything we needed. Crystal and Joel were very friendly and responsive. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient. We took daily walks and loved seeing the burrowing owls out every morning. Close to the Yacht Club which we walked to frequently to watch boats launch / take-out. We enjoyed the kayaks available a couple times as well as the bikes. Any time I had a question, both Crystal and Joel responded right away. Very nice owners and take care of their home away from home. It truly feels like this when we stayed here - not just another vacation rental. Highly recommend!

We were just as delighted to have you as guests at Coral Palms as well, thank you.
Perfect retreat location
We enjoyed a long weekend at Coral Palms to catch up with friends-it was the perfect spot! We had plenty of room for six adults to entertain inside and out. We loved the pool and outdoor grill to enjoy some local fare, had everything we needed for amenities and loved how updated the house was. Beautifully decorated while comfortable and relaxing! We loved seeing the burrowing owls on our walks in the neighborhood, enjoyed the view of the water, the proximity to local shops and restaurants and had lots of luck on the fishing charter. Highly recommend as the place to feel at home in SW Florida…..we will definitely be back soon!

This house had 2 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. It had a well equipped kitchen and 2 dining rooms. We ate in one dining room and set our computers up in the other. The lanai with the heated swimming pool was wonderful! In the back is a canal where every morning we fed the turtles. It was great seeing so many turtles show up each morning. By the time we left 25-30 turtles came in the mornings. The house was close to many parks and recreational areas. We drove to Sanibel Island twice. We went to the beach in Cape Coral and to 2 Art Fests locally, to outdoor food markets and even went to Naples to eat and shop. Most things were within an hour drive. There was plenty to do and see.

Perfect Vacation Home
My family of 5 returned from staying at this beautiful Cape Coral home. The house was super clean and inviting. The location was perfect! Right on the canal with only a few minute boat ride to the ocean and only a short drive to the beaches, great restaurants and shopping.One of the highlights of staying at this place is the large lanai were we would sit out in the evenings cooking in the outdoor kitchen while the kids splashed in the large pool. There were kayaks, bikes, beach gear, pool toys, fishing poles and more for us to use. We tried fishing right off the dock and it was lots of fun. There was always something for us to do here. The house was fully stocked with all the glassware, cookware, towels and amenities you could want. The beds were super comfy, high speed internet worked great, and washer and dryer were an added bonus.We can’t wait to go back, and would absolutely recommend Coral Palms to anyone visiting the area.

We loved the house and the location. The whole area of cape coral is well maintained and clean. The best part was the enclosed pool area and being able to go just a few steps from the house and throw out a line to fish. The bikes allowed for the kids to go ride around town and have some fun also. If you don't mind a little drive head over to Matlacha or Siesta keys both are nice lil areas to visit. Thanks for such a great place to spend our week hope to see you again

Glad you had a great time and caught some fish in the canal behind the house.
Beautiful vacation rental!
Loved our stay here! The pool right in the backyard was a highlight, along with access to the ocean from the canal in the backyard, which lead us to beautiful Sanibel Island with turquoise waters! Ended our stay with a sunset at the pier on the beach only minutes away from the house!! Highly recommend!! Definitely coming back!!!!
