          Car: Recommended

          Located in warm sunny Southwest Florida, Cape Coral is the Venice of Florida, featuring over 400 miles of canals. Cape Coral adjoins Redfish Cove at the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River and is only than 30 minutes by boat to the open waters of the Gulf.

          The desireable Yacht Club area of Cape Coral is the birthplace of Cape Coral and is named for the pulic Yacht Club Municipal Park and Marina just a few hundred yards away.

          If you are a boater, be sure to consider a few things in choosing your rental villa.

          1. How long does it take to get to get out of the idle zone to open water? Some canals are 'landlocked' or you may need to spend an hour or two at idle speed to get to open water. Villa Driftwood is approximately 1/2 mile, (5-10 min).

          2. Is it direct access (no bridges or locks) & deep enough? Villa Driftwood provides approximately 5' deep direct 'sailboat' access.

          3. Is there a marina with support facilities nearby? The Yacht Club has a full marina and boat ramp.

          Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, shelling, wildlife viewing, spa, racquetball, basketball, mini golf, shuffleboard, hot air ballooning

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: I am a registered architect and this is my dream home. Thanks for considering Villa Driftwood! Andrew Churchill, AIA Indiana Registered Architect #8600327 Florida Registered Architect #AR0016177

          Why the Owner Chose Yacht Club:
          Ft Myers is far enough south that warm weather is pretty reliable. My brother lives on Sanibel (about 30 minutes away), so I was familiar with the area. After many months of searching, I found my perfect vacation home. As an architect, I recognized both a great home and an ideal location. I enjoy vacationing here with my 19 & 21 year old sons and look forward to retiring here someday. My brother, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, owns the only horse farm on Sanibel (as far as I know), so I have family ties here. I don't rent any other houses, so all my attention is focused on making this 'home'.

          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
          Walking to the beach!! Watching the sunset over the water!! Playing in the pool!! The privacy of 2 master bedrooms. Did I mention Walking to the Beach...!!!
