Clearwater house description
Very private paradise. The yard is fenced for ultimate privacy. There are empty lots on either side and just nature across the canal. The pool and lanai area are huge with over 1100 sq feet of screened sunny splendor. The lanai area has a glass table for 4 with swivel, rocking chairs, two loungers, and 4 comfy cushioned chairs and coffee table. There is a large kitchen window pass through. Also on the deck area are another table for 4 near the gas grill and two other loungers. The spa seats 6 and has 50 jets, and lights. Along with 3 fans and lights, we also have two lighted palm tree lamps on the lanai just for fun! If you prefer to tan without a screen we have a separate tanning pad or the dock area. There is a small boat and electric trolling motor for exploring the canals. Inside we have air conditioning, lighted fans in each bedroom, living room and family room. This home is nicely furnished and decorated. Comfort is key! Reclining seats in the family room with a 50 inch TV.
Comfort is key!: All house furnishings are geared to comfort. You can put your feet up in the family room and really relax! There are plenty of glasses and bowls, utensils and pans. The lanai is large and has several seating areas. The pool is heated and protected from north winds in the winter. The hot tub has 50 jets and changing colored lights. There is an additional deck area for lounging, grilling, eating. There is even an area outside of the screened enclosure for tanning. Because the whole yard is fenced, it is extremely private for swimming and sunning.
The 50 inch TV has HD and includes many music channels. There is unlimited local and long distance calling in the US only. There is a wireless router and work area with view to the lanai and canal.
The dining table has swivel, chairs on casters. They are leather with arms, very comfortable for sitting. You can watch TV from the table if desired. Great for playing family games.
There is a printer for your use and two computer chairs.
Canal: This house faces East on a fresh water canal. It receives lots of sunshine all day from sun up through sun set. Because the house makes a little shade on the pool in the afternoon, it is still bearable on the really hot summer days. You can sit in our screened front porch area to watch the sunsets. There are no houses across the canal so this also contributes to the very private feel of this house. The canal is very close to Shamrock Lake, Lake Saratoga and Lake Kennedy. The little boat is yours to use for exploring the canals and lakes at no extra charge. There is even a fishing pole in the garage you can use.
Convenient Location: Another positive for this house is it's great location. You could walk or ride your bike (basket on bike) to the grocery store. You can ride bikes to two close by parks that have a playground for the kids. Sunsplash Water Park and Mike Greenwell's Family Fun Park are both only a mile away. It is very close to the main roads with restaurants. It is 10 miles to Cape Coral Yacht Club beach, 25 miles to Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach, about 8 miles to Fort Myers and the Edison/Ford Estate. The airport is 21 miles away.
This house is listed as the 22nd least expensive out of 869 listings for Cape Coral. You get a lot of value for your money when renting this house. Many guests return yearly after staying at Sunny Paradise.

We found this property to be above our expectations, having stayed in many villas in Florida we found this to be one of the best. The boat was an added bonus and had loads of fun going up and down the canals, we spotted loads of wildlife in and around the canal, look out for the otters they were so much fun. The master bedroom and en-suite were very comfortable, and we spent a lot of time in the hot tub. Sanibel and Pine Island are a must see, and also try the pizza place on Hancock bridge Blvd. called I Ragazzi Pizza, they are the most welcoming people, and the food is delicious.

Owner response: Thank you very much for your kind comments. We have tried to provide nice amenities for our guests. If we feel the need for something when we are there, we assume our guests would probably also like to have the same things. . I agree that it is a nice canal system with close access to the Shamrock Lakes, Saratoga, Kennedy and Alhambra Lakes. I thought that otter was going to dive into the boat the first time we met him while exploring! And as you mentioned it is convenient to be not so far from Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, Pine Island - the Matlacha Bridge, which I've heard is the busiest fishing bridge in Florida! Plus it is close and convenient to pizza, videos, grocery storres, pharmacies and fast food yet with the fence and trees you still have a set apart, private feeling when outside at the house. The hot tub is a perfect ending for the many perfect days in Florida! I hope you will come back again some time!
"SUNNY PARADISE" Is An Understatement
"SUNNY PARADISE" Is An Understatement
The layout of house, lanai, pool and spa must be standard for Cape Coral. What's different here -- beyond the bikes and boat -- is that everything to make a great stay has been thought of and provided. Not just the terry robes, great after an evening dunk, or the extra power-bar at the computer desk, or even the scanner-printer loaded with paper; Karen and Ken have thought of everything. Reach for something that ought to be somewhere and it's right there. We came to photograph birds (no better place in winter than Lee County) but enjoyed the lanai and the short ride to the seafood venues of Matlacha and just plain hanging out. First Class all the way. (Suggestion: for a real hoot, contact the burrowing owl lady, who knows where the active burrows are.) Not motel-modern -- this is a real home.

This 4-days stay was awesome. We were 2 couples and 1 child and felt better in this house than in our own. Everything is thinking to make your stay the most comfortable as possible. You find all you need and more (space, pool, jacuzzi, waterway bbq, bikes, fishing rods...). As written on signs in the house it is really the paradise. If we go back to Florida one day we will go there for sure !

We stayed in this lovely villa for ten days and had a fantastic time. The property is clean and well cared for. Karen is a great host! In fact we have recommended the property to our friends, who will be staying at this villa in 6-7 weeks time. The villa is close to all amenties. The pool is in sunlight all day. We had a great time exploring the local canals and lakes in the boat provided. My husband particularly enjoyed the hot tub and feeding the local turtles from the dock. This is a must stay place!!!

We had a great time, the house and ammenities were perfect. Karen, thanks for the great accomodations. We have family I cape coral, but we didn't want to bother them with our 3 year old, especially with one of them battling cancer. This house was located centrally, and had more comforts then I would have ever thought of. The house and grounds are very well cared for. We look forward to staying here again on our next visit. Thanks again!

Karens home was even better than the pictures show! Very clean with everything you should need! Even used the crockpot on our days when we were gone all day and kids come home starving! The location of home was perfect-short drive to Ft Meyers Beach, Sanibel Island and even Venice beach for a little shark tooth hunting was only an hour drive! Took one day and drove to Universal Studios which was about 3 hrs but not a big deal! While in Cape Coral we Kayaked in Ft Meyers which really enjoyed, parasailed in Ft Meyers Beach and went to Pine Island and had nice yummy lunch at Andy's Seafood Market-Then bought fresh fish (Grouper) that we grilled the next night-Very good! Lounged alot in pool and hottub and 10 yr old and husband fished out of canal every day! Loved feeding the turtles!! Went for bike ride in the evenings too! All in all was a wonderful vacation and would definilty recommend this lovely home-We hope to return next year! Thank you Karen for sharing this!!

Karen & Ken, We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your home in Cape Coral. It was a haven for us, so comfortable and relaxing. You have put so much thought into your home and it really shows. We have vacationed in many homes around the country, yours has been the best experience thus far! It was nice to meet and talk with both of you. We would love to visit again! And now a few weeks later as I am writing this, Kevin and I are reminiscing about our visit; morning coffee on the lanai, relaxing at the pool in the sunshine, enjoying the hot tub at night. Exceptional care and maintenance have gone into this vacation home, we would highly recommend! Thank you. Debbie & Kevin Novi, Michigan

Owner response: HI Debbie and Kevin, Thank you for taking the time to post a review, I really appreciate it. I'm really happy to hear we were your best experience in home rentals!! It was also nice to meet you since we don't actually get to meet very many of our guests in person! I am like you, as I'm sitting home in snowy Michigan I'm thinking of feeding the turtles, taking a swim, sitting in the hot tub, getting a nap in the sun. I take those little brain vacations a lot. I hope you will come again sometime. Karen
We were thrilled Sunny Paradise was much more than you see on the internet. You could easily have 2 families share the home. Everything is very roomy and so comfortable. We hated to leave. The kitchen is very well equipped. It has everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms and bathrooms were large and comfortable. The location is very convenient to shopping, restaurants, beaches, and Sanibel, Captiva and Pine Islands. We were there for 2 weeks and found something new and exciting to do every day. The home and yard are spotless you would never know dogs are permitted. I brought my 2 dogs and they were very comfortable and easy to care for there. The neighborhood is quiet and we loved watching the burrowing owls down the street. The pool is wonderful and quite large. The area is very quiet, we enjoyed biking with the bikes supplied in the garage. Karen, the owner was very nice to deal with and we are hoping to return next winter. We highly recommend this property, you will not be disappointed. It was a perfect vacation! Thank you Karen for sharing your home with us. Marilyn W., Sudbury, Ontario, Canada

This home totally exceeded our expectations. We loved everything about this place - the location, pool, hot tub, bbq, and boat. We used them all! The house layout is exceptional for both outdoor and indoor living. We ate every meal outside in the large screened in lanai. Considerable time was spent to ensure this house was of superior quality. From first contact to end of holiday, owners make themselves available to answer any questions or help with any problems. The housebook they leave in the house explains everything needed in detail. It also gives useful information on local attractions, eateries, etc. We fed the turtles every day, seen the "burrowing owls" and enjoyed the variety of birds in the area. We appreciated being allowed to bring our small dog "Pepe" with us. He settled right in. It was definitely 2 weeks in a "Sunny Paradise" and we hope to return in the future. John & Debbie, London, Ontario Canada.

We loved staying at Sunny Paradise!!! The location is perfect; close to all types of shopping, restaurants and city parks. We had such a wonderful stay ... the pool and the beautiful house exceeded our expectations. We love Fort Myers Beach & Sanibel Island because they are both pet-friendly beaches. We thought Karen was just so easy to talk to and answered all of our questions. She helped us stay within our budget and we would have loved to meet her. We hope to return again soon.

Owner response: Thank you for your wonderful review- especially that my home exceeded your expectations! Thanks also for taking the time to write a review. If May is your preferred travel time, now might be a good time to book since I am already booking into next April. I had about 5 previous guests not be able to get in last year because they waited too late and their weeks got booked. I hope I hear from you again in the future. Karen
