South Exposure Pool Home with Gorgeous Water Views
Description from the owner
The minute you walk into this custom home, you experience the architect’s objective of enjoying the magnificent water views. You can see Lake Ceitus just beyond the large swimming pool as you enter the front door because of the open floor plan and expansive windows. Every room's windows and doors are designed to maximize the spectacular lake views. The rear of the property, including the lanai and pool area, face south so you can be assured of receiving plenty of sunshine. Cape Coral typically receives 335 days of sunshine every year. At times dolphins and manatees can be observed swimming the area. There is about 4000 total covered square feet, 2200 with A/C, a large pool and a boat dock. You are less than 10 minutes to open water and great fishing or you can fish right from the dock.
FEATURES: Villa Del Lago offers a split floor plan with a large master bedroom featuring a king size bed, sliding glass doors to the lanai and large windows with a pool and water view. There is a connected bathroom with a deep jetted tub, dual pedestal sinks and a large shower that is handicap accessible. The other bathroom also has a deep jetted tub, shower and pedestal sink. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and a large window with a killer view of the lake. The third bedroom has 2 single beds. Wifi is available for your phone and computer. There is a 60 inch flat panel TV with cable HD programming and a DVD player. The kitchen has thick granite counters and is very well equipped with everything needed for a perfect vacation. The kitchen sink and counter face the great room and a large arched window so you can enjoy the view or watch TV while cooking. There is crown molding with vaulted ceilings and some chair rail. The floors consist of either hardwood or tile. This property sits on a quarter acre, has a 2 car garage and is nicely landscaped. All of the furniture and belongings in the pictures has been removed and replaced with new furniture, in fact everything in the house is new, the pictures will be updated in mid-December.
SHOPPING AND DINING: Pine Island is just 7 miles away where you can find some local restaurants boasting a variety of sea foods. The Tropicaya fruit stand/market sells fresh fruits, herbs, vegetables, newspapers, homemade mango preserves, ice cream and souvenirs and is only a 3 minute drive away. Try their homemade key lime pie!
CAPE CORAL: Cape Coral is located in Southwest Florida and is well situated for visiting nearby Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, Naples, and only a couple of hours to Miami or Fort Lauderdale. Cape Coral is served by Southwest International Airport (RSW) which is about 30 minutes away. I find it is usually cheaper to fly into Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and make the drive across the everglades on alligator alley. Cape Coral is called “America’s Venice” for good reason. It's paradise for boating enthusiasts with over 400 miles of canals and access to the Gulf of Mexico. Take the boat to the some of the world's most beautiful beaches like Bonita Beach, Captiva Island, Sanibel Island and Fort Myers Beach, where you can enjoy the sun and watch wild dolphins play.
RECREATION: The boat dock can be used by renters to park a rental boat.
Joe Stonis Park is 1 mile away from Villa Del Lago. The park features a fitness trail, lighted tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, horseshoe pits, two playgrounds and a one-acre lake.
Jim Jeffers Park is 1.5 miles from Villa Del Lago. Amenities Include: A mega structure playground, soccer and softball field, tennis courts, basketball courts, a 3-acre lake, walking paths.
Kayaks and canoes can be rented from Gulf Coast Kayaks in Matlacha, 3 miles away. They offer daily tours of the Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve, a Sunset Birding Tour or a romantic Moonlight Matlacha kayak cruise when there is a full moon.
BEACHES: There are beautiful beaches in the Cape Coral area. Cape Coral Beach is a small charming beach that is only 20 minutes from the house. There is Fort Myers Beach that is many miles long, has shops and restaurants and is the full beach experience. It is about 45 minutes away. If you prefer unspoiled beaches, take the ferry to Cayo Costa State Park Island and you will have miles of beach all to yourself. We provide beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler.
THINGS TO SEE AND DO: Sun Splash Family Water Park is located in Cape Coral and is open from mid-March to late September (15 minute drive). There is also the Shell Factory (15 minute drive) which houses a zoo with alligators, etc. as well as amusements such as bumper boats. Ding Darling wildlife refuge on Sanibel Island is also a wonderful outing. The Edison Ford Museum in Fort Myers offers a glimpse into the lives of two amazing individuals.

"What a great Christmas vacation we had at Cape Coral"
Left on 01/14/2015 for a stay in December 2014 | Ramm408Reviewed Jan 14, 2015Stayed Dec 2014
This home is beautiful, peaceful, and accommodating. There is a lot of room for quite a few people and the furnishings are all lovely. We enjoyed the pool and the lanai every day as the weather was great. I cannot recommend this property enough. Also, working with the owner was a pleasure, very thoughtful and caring person. I hope to return next year.
