Villa Rosegarden is a beautiful contemporary waterfront villa on wide canal in the upscale Rose Garden neighborhood, a peaceful family neighborhood with very little traffic.
The villa features a wide open floor plan with great flow between all rooms and the large screened in lanai with heated pool. The spacious family room with HDTV and stereo, the living and dining rooms, the master bedroom (with flat-screen TV), and the kitchen are all open to the lanai and pool, and have broad views of the canal. Fish or relax on the large wooden deck with a tiki hut out over the canal with dock.
Egrets may wander by, and manatees and occasional dolphins swim right by the deck. Mature tropical landscaping surrounds the Villa, including trees that provide bananas, limes, mangoes, and coconuts in season. Cable TV, free wifi, indoor/outdoor stereo, a barbeque grill, fishing tackle, and bicycles are also provided.
On the boat lift is a 21' GS211 Hurricane FunDeck center console deck boat with a quiet and efficient Yamaha 150 HP 4-stroke outboard that can be rented separately at a discount by experienced boaters. Boat access to waterfront restaurants and the Gulf of Mexico and is just a few minutes away. (Ask for details!)
Master bedroom bath suite has separate sinks, European shower, and whirlpool bath. Two additional bedrooms feature a queen-size bed, and two singles. The living room and family room sofas are convertible to beds, and there is also a foldaway crib. Laundry room with washer and dryer. The villa is all on one level.
Cape Coral offers 340 days of sunshine annually, and 400 miles of canals (more than any other city on Earth.) Southwest Florida - including Cape-Coral, Fort Myers, Naples, and Marco Island - offers cultural attractions, museums and performance venues, fine restaurants, golf courses, natural areas, and other recreational attractions. Minutes from the villa are Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel & Captiva (world's best shell-hunting!), Naples, and many beautiful beaches of pure white sand, all easily reached by car or by boat.
There are nominal cleaning, and excess electricity fees that are paid to our manager, as well, because extra A/C in Summer and extra pool heating in Winter can increase electricity costs. Florida State tax is 6% and Lee County room tax is 5%.
Dog can be considered on a case by case basis. Long hair or shedding breeds are not encouraged, because they tend to shed even more in warmer weather. Our cleaning service adds $50 to clean for the next guests....moreless

Cape Coral is a relaxed resort and residential community. It is geographically large and spread out with plenty of recreational and cultural opportunities, dining, and shopping. Cape Coral is adjacent to Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach, close to Miramar Outlets, and an easy drive to Naples or Sarasota. Our historic Rose Garden neighborhood is close to downtown but off the beaten track with no through traffic. Our local streets are great for walking and biking (bikes provided.) Nearby Rotary Park is an easy stroll with fountains, an exercise trail, playground, butterfly house, and nature museum with trails through the mangroves. SunSplash Family Water Park is a great place to take the kids!
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are semi-retired empty-nesters from Connecticut USA. We travel as much as we can, and bought Villa Rosegarden to eventually settle down. It's so beautiful here! We love it so much and miss it when we're away, so we visit frequently, and are also happy to be able to share it with you the rest of the year!
Why the Owner Chose Eight Lakes: Cape Coral is uncongested compared to other Gulf Coast towns because it is almost entirely residential but never fully occupied. The beautiful setting of Villa Rosegarden is peaceful and relaxing, with all main rooms open to the water. Enjoy the open flow with double and triple-wide sliding glass doors from every room to the screened-in pool and lanai by the water. The private deck out over the canal with picnic table and tiki hut accommodates both activity and relaxation. The neighborhood is close to everything but there are no through streets so it is quiet and peaceful. Villa Rosegarden is ideal for couples, friends, or families. It is comfortable for 2, 4, or 6 people (or even 8 if you use the pullouts.)
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: There are many properties available in Cape Coral, but few that are affordable in a location like this in the peaceful, upscale, and sought-after Rose Garden District.
One of this year's guests may have said it best: 'We have been coming down to Cape Coral for 8 years and while we have enjoyed every year, we think this is the best yet!'
