The house with a southern exposure is located on a saltwater canal in southwest Cape Coral. We just have furnished it newly. Here some details: The house has 3 bedrooms (2 double with king size beds and 1 twin), 2 bathrooms, a bigger than average heated pool with Jacuzzi and a large Lanai. In the reception room is a large 55′ HDTV-Screen with a video and DVD player. There is also a stereo with radio and CD. In one of the drawers you will find a selection of CDs, videos and DVDs for you and the kids. The garage is for 2 cars and there is also a laundry room. In every bedroom are also a television and a radio alarm clock with integrated CD player. Next to the kitchen are the dining area and the open-log-fire where you can relax with a nice glass of wine during the ‘chillier’ evenings in Florida. More Information and pictures are available. There is a huge BBQ-Grill on the Lanai.
Boat rental: It’s very easy to rent a boat, you just need a valid driving license and you must be over 25 years of age. No special boat license is necessary! The location of the Villa is ideal for Boat trips into the Gulf. After a short 30 minute journey in the main canal, along the mangroves, you will reach the lock (that is where the bar/restaurant RummRunners is located; the ideal place to dock the boat and have some drinks or dinner), that leads you into the Caloosahatchee River e.g. the Gulf of Mexico. There are some boat rentals and they will be at hand, if you would like to rent a boat. For newcomers to the boating world we recommend a ponton boat, that will set you back around $550 a week. A Glastron 27′ with space for up to 11 persons will set you back at around $1000 a week.
Climate: In summer the air temperature is between 30-35 C and the water temperature 26-30 C. The rest of the year air temperature is 23-28 C and the water temperature always above 20 C; sunshine days are between 330-350 a year. The changing of the seasons is hardly recognisable and flowers and trees keep their green leaves throughout the year. Because the water in the gulf never falls below 20 C there is swimming all year around.
more sport activities: Inlineskating, Mountainbiking, sailing, Surfing, diving, Tennis, Waterski, Bowling, Deep Sea fishing, Jet-Ski, canouing, boating, Parasailing, snorkeling. Cape Coral is a Paradies for Golfer. There are 5 Golf places in town and around 50 near by. A map with the closest 120 Golf places is in the house. There are over 1200 Golf places in Florida.
