Villa Unica – A house that lives up to its name.

Villa Unica begins living up to its name as soon as you enter the circular driveway.

You enter the patio in the inner courtyard through a forged iron gate. This is a peaceful spot where you only hear the quiet bubbling of the fountain and see the colorful blossoming plants and a separate fire pit.

From here you can enter the separate guest wing with 2 single beds, a bathroom, TV and a Nintendo Wii, or enter the main house through the French doors.

Here you will find a spacious open room attractively furnished by the owners with 2 large leather sofas, a 60” flat screen TV with its own sound system, a bar and a large dining area with a wonderful table for 6 persons along with a roomy, fully equipped genuine wood kitchen with a granite work counter.

Off of the living room area you’ll find 2 bedrooms each with a large double bed, a bathroom and a walk-in closet with handmade wooden shelves. Each bedroom is also furnished with a TV and a phone.

The kitchen and the living room area lead out onto the breathtaking southwesterly patio with a large pool and a magnificent view down the planted palms along the extra-wide canal.

Come enjoy this very special vacation experience.

This unique ambience is rounded out by tasteful outdoor furniture and comfortable loungers, the pool with an adjoining pool bath and a beautifully decorated stone bed. Spend your evenings soaking up the playful light of Florida’s amazing sunsets and your days in the sun or the shade – at Villa Unica you and your travel guests will find plenty of space to enjoy your vacation to the fullest.

And take your choice of the charcoal grill or America’s ever-popular Weber gas grill for your very own BBQ highlights.

Our Journey to this House

For us it was love at first sight as soon as we saw this house. We christened it Villa Unica because of the many facets it features that one doesn’t normally find in other Cape Coral houses. Villa Unica is truly one-of-a-kind.

You’ll understand what we mean the minute you set foot onto the wonderful patio with its many beautiful plants and take in the amazing sense of quiet and tranquility. Even the 24 photos we’ve posted can’t fully reflect this atmosphere.

It was important to us that the interior was open and airy in contrast to how compartmentalized most American bungalows are. The doors are made of heavy genuine wood instead of pressboard, while the bathrooms feature quality fittings and everywhere you look feels bright and inviting.

We chose this house from a selection of more than 120 on offer. We looked at around a dozen, but this was the only one that really knocked us out.

We’ve furnished the house with an eye on maintaining this effect and above all on staying true to its almost Mediterranean style.

We’ve always placed a special focus on the outside area, because this is where you spend the most time. There are many houses on the canal, but not all of them have a great view because the canal is too narrow or the properties on the other bank are empty. We really enjoy being situated on an oversized canal that almost feels like a lake.

It was also important for us to find a house facing south to ensure that the patio gets enough sun all year round instead of having to drag a lounger into some faraway corner in the back.

But facing south also means lots and lots of sun in the summer. Many other houses have fairly small roofed patio areas, or “lanais”, with just enough space for one table with 6 chairs. But we believe that a lanai should also have enough space for an adequate number of loungers since not everyone wants to lie in the sun all the time.

Along with the fire pit on the patio and its small seating area with a pergola, another highlight is the separate grill area. BBQ traditionalists will enjoy the charcoal grill where you can hear the palms rustling nearby. This is right where the evening sun comes in and is the perfect spot for rounding out the day.

And if charcoal is just too much trouble for you, you’ll find the gas grill mentioned above right next to the charcoal grill. We also inherited a mobile cooler from the previous owner. As Germans, we didn’t really know what to do with it at first. But as soon as we tossed in a couple of bags of ice and planted our Budweiser bottles inside, we understood. The cooler keeps drinks, including cola and water, ice-cold for 3 days.

In the meantime we also know that all of our immediate neighbors are totally nice people who are completely helpful. We also appreciate how important it is to live in a good area when you’re driving to the supermarket or out to eat in the evening so often. Everything you need is literally only a few minutes away, including for instance Del Prado Blvd.

These were our motivations when we were searching for our dream house. We are so happy to have found it and we hope that you feel as good at Villa Unica as we do ourselves when we visit as often as we can.

We look forward to having you!

Beautiful unique home

  • 5 of 5

Great quiet location and beautiful home. The owners have gone out of their way to supply pool toys, lounges, games etc to add to your stay. Every rental is set up differently so make sure you include toilet paper, paper towel, soap for the bathrooms as well as the dishwasher on your shopping list or you will be going out to shop again. The unique layout of this home would be fabulous for 3 couples looking for a getaway

The best rental home ever

  • 5 of 5

We were taken aback by the space and quality of our Cape Coral home, although the pictures looked good it is rare that a property is better in the flesh as is the case for Casa Unica. The location was great in a good neighbourhood and sitting out by the pool overlooking the canal was a real pleasure. The property managers were very helpful and responded quickly to all requests when were were in the property. We do not often recommend properties as we have very high standards , but will make an exception with this one.

Spacious, clean and comfotable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great holiday in the villa which had been cleaned to a high standard with everything you might need to make the stay comfortable. The view from the pool was lovely and it was relaxing watching the wild life and we loved warching the amazing thunder storms.

The pool was great as you could sit on the steps sipping something nice and cool or float on the airbeds provided relaxing in the sunshine. Bliss !!!! The owners and management team ensured that the experience from the time of booking and checking out was hassle free and even had cold water and beer on arrival which was much appreciated. We would definitely recommend the villa. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

BEAUTIFUL!!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was even more beautiful in person than pictures!! The house was immaculate and had all the amenities that you could ever need! The property managers arrived right on schedule upon check in and check out and Marissa gave us some great tips on local restaurants, etc. The private pool was so lovely and that is where we spent most of our free time!! The only suggestion that I would have would be the option to pay a little more up front and have the pool heated to a comfortable level upon arrival. We are guessing the prior guests didn't use it so it was pretty chilly but the manager showed us how to turn it up. The neighborhood seemed very safe and quiet. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would recommend this place to everyone!!
