You can catch your dinner, season it and make a daiquiri ... just add rum!
Great shopping and dining are close by. It is near the Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve where you can hike and rent kayaks. Great for bird and wildlife watching. There is a new park at the entrance of our canal from the Caloosahatchee River where you can launch a boat, picnic and relax.
This part of Cape Coral is fun, unpretentious and friendly, and this is why we love it and think you will too.

About Tom and/or Genie Wiss
We live on beautiful Lake Hopatcong in northwestern New Jersey and love the boating life including sailboat racing, antique wooden boats, canoeing and kayaking. Tom is a Landscape Architect and Genie is a Land Use Administrator. We have three grown daughters and one grandson and one granddaughter. We bought this home in the hope that we could use it more when we retire. The home is so comfortable and we feel our family will enjoy visiting us down here because there is something for EVERYONE here and everything is so convenient.
Tom and/or Genie Wiss purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Tom and/or Genie Wiss chose Cape Coral
We thought the neighborhood was very friendly and safe. The canal ride to the river is short and is deep so you won't hit bottom and some of the canal is a park and undeveloped. There is a lot of shopping close by. The home is far enough away from the main drag so there is no traffic noise and the canal is quiet. A hospital is very close by. With no neighbors on the adjoining lots, outdoor space is ample and privacy ensured. We like that it is close to Fort Myers and the airport to pick up visitors. Also, Fort Meyers is a really neat town with upscale restaurants and lots of cultural events. The wonderful beaches of Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers Beach are only a short drive or boat ride away. The Cape Coral farmers market is a great place on Saturday mornings during the winter months.
What makes this Villa unique
Warm temperatures, beautiful weather, a beautiful large pool, large spa, spectacular sunsets, great access to boating and sailing, convenient bargain shopping and great dining. Directly across and along the river are fabulous mansions we enjoy viewing from our boat. We drive to beaches both pristine and commercial, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Fort Myers Beach, Naples, the Planetarium and Aquarium, miniature golf and Pine Island that reminded us of the British Virgin Islands. There is also the great fishing of Charlotte Harbor very nearby.

Great Host and Great Home
We had a great time and the home worked out fantastically. The pool, the canal, the hot tub, and the space met and exceeded all of our desires. The information provided by Tom was helpful and plentiful. To sum it up we highly recommend this home - relax, enjoy, and have a worry free vacation.
The house was a welcome place after a busy day of sightseeing. It felt homey and secure. We didn’t use the pool or hot tub, but enjoyed the lanai very much. The house was easy to find and in a quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed watching the boats that used the canal behind the house. We do recommend the house and if in the area, we would rent it again.
Perfect location !!!
The home is wonderful. We cooked great meals in the kitchen which had everything you need to prepare a gourmet dinner. The pool and hot tub were the perfect tempature and we enjoyed them very much. Owners are very responsive and we give them a 5star rating as well. A wonderful vacation. We will be back.
I loved it!
The property is very comfortable and located near shopping areas and excellent restaurants.Any concerns one might have are speedily addressed and resolved by the owner. He also provides
extensive, helpful information on the area.
Home away from home
We felt really at home from the minute we stepped in the door. There was everything you could want & more - very well equipped. We enjoyed exploring the area & recharging our batteries by the fab pool. There were plenty of places to eat nearby or supermarkets if you wanted to self catering. We loved watching the iguanas basking on the dockside & the fish jump in the canal. The owners were very helpful & answered any questions promptly. Thank you for sharing your property with us.
Home away from home. Perfection.
Our family stayed here for a week and loved every second of it. Anything you need to feel at home was there. The house was beautiful, super clean, the sheets were so soft and the beds were very comfortable. Mr. Wiss was available any time. We enjoyed the ducks that came to hang out on the deck, and seeing the iguana family. Convient to stores and places to eat. We would definitely stay again. Thank you so much Mr. And Mrs. Wiss.
Thank you Corley and Tim. It is a great house and so quite and relaxing. We're glad you had a great time and you are welcomed back any time.
Tom and Genie
Our beautiful recently renovated home is very close to Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, the bohemian Pine Island and Fort Myers Beach all of which are great day trips with wonderful scenery, great beaches, delicious restaurants, fishing from land or sea and some of the best beach combing in the United States. It is very close to shopping of all kinds yet far enouph away that there is no traffic and is extremely relaxing. Biking to the local park or the Ecological Preserve is another fun yet short trip. Rent a boat from the local boat livery and explore the canals, the Calosahachee River or go out to the Gulf or go Tarpon fishing in Pine Island Sound. So much to do, but relaxing by the pool or in the spa or at the patio at the waterfront is what we hear the most from or guests. Our Home- it's a great place to go.
