Villa Palm Royale has a dual heated oversized pool (one that you can actually swim in) and spa with a southern exposure to provide sun all day, while the covered lanai allows you to relax in the shade. The pool has a solar heater, AND a new, efficient electric heat pump to ensure warm water no matter what the outside temperature. There is a casual seating area for four and an outdoor dining table for six.

The pool is only steps from a lower patio and the oversized trex dock. You can also fish from it or just enjoy watching the boats go by en route to the Gulf of Mexico. View spectacular sunrises and sunsets from the lanai or dock.

The newly remodeled kitchen features maple cabinets and black granite countertops – plenty of space to prepare meals. The all stainless appliances include a double oven. The kitchen opens to the dining area featuring a Tommy Bahama dining set with 3 extra leaves for entertaining. Disappearing sliding doors open the kitchen/dining area to the lanai and canal view. This area also opens up to the great room with all new furniture. The large Key West entertainment center houses a 46' HD flat screen TV, CD, DVD, and iPod dock. The TV can also be viewed from lanai and pool. Cable TV, hi-speed internet, and phones with free long distance in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico, are all there for your use. The great room also has disappearing sliding glass doors that totally open up the great room to the lanai and canal views, bringing the outdoors in. High ceilings soar through the great room, kitchen and dining areas.

The large, master bedroom has a king bed and sitting room that overlooks the canal with sliding doors opening to the lanai. A 32' flat screen HD TV sits on the media cabinet. There is a walk-in closet by California closets, a master bath with dual sinks, and a large dual shower. The second bedroom features a king bed, Key West style furniture, and a 32' HD flat screen TV. The third bedroom has two extra-long twin beds that can be converted to a King at your request. Each bedroom has very high-end, quality box springs, mattresses and bedding for your sleeping comfort. The all new guest bathroom is located adjacent to the two guest bedrooms and has a full shower and tub. Washer/dryer, many pool floaties, noodles, beach towels, beach bags, coolers, and four adult comfort bikes are also provided for your use, as well as 3 children's bikes.

About Mary Reynolds

We are from a small town in Minnesota, where our children and grandchildren are all within a 4 hour drive. We enjoy spending time at our home there, our cabin in northern Minnesota, and now at various times at Villa Palm Royale in Cape Coral, which we purchased and remodeled in 2011. We love boating in the Gulf, golfing, and just relaxing at the Villa.

Mary Reynolds purchased this house in 2011

Why Mary Reynolds chose Pelican

After vacationing in Key Largo, Naples, Fort Myers, and Cape Coral, we fell in love with the Cape Coral area. After renting in Cape Coral, we discovered where the most desirable area of the city is, and that is why we purchased our house in a lovely neighborhood in the Southwest area of the city, close to Cape Harbour. We love walking and biking in this Cape Harbour neighborhood and leave our four bikes for your use. We fell in love with the open floor plan of this home, and the way it all opens up to the lanai and the beautiful Gulf access canal.

What makes this house unique

Having rented other homes helped us to realize that we wanted a large pool that we can actually swim in (most of them are only big enough for 'dipping'). And we also wanted a southern exposure to ensure sun on the pool all day, while the roof overhang provides constant shade on parts of the lanai. The view of the canal is gorgeous, a l50 ft. wide canal with an intersecting view. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular from the lanai or dock.

Sunshine getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting through VRBO. I admit I was a bit nervous, as I was driving to the house, not knowing what to expect. When I stepped inside I was in awe. The house is beautifully decorated with very high standard furniture. I love to cook and the kitchen was simply gorgeous. It has absolutely everything you need and more. From a gas grill to a fully equipped kitchen, beach towels, bikes, cooler. There's nothing they didn't' think of. It's definitely a home away from home. We so enjoyed the oversize pool and dock. Neighborhood is very quiet and a great place to run or bike. The location is perfect, so close to many beautiful beaches. Sanibel, Fort Myers, Captiva just to name a few. The owners are wonderful, helpful people to deal with. I would definitely stay here again. We hated to leave and miss it already. Thank you Mary for a great relaxing much needed vacation.

Great Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

House has been updated to a very high standard, very homely, spotlessly clean.

We had no problems while we were there.

The location is great, it has empty plots either side, quiet neighborhood.

Well equipped.

Owner and manager were very easy to deal with.

Definitely stay here again should we visit Cape Coral.

Car: recommended

This Villa is located in the highly desirable area of SW Cape Coral, south of Cape Coral Parkway. Walk or bike to Cape Harbour, where you can enjoy shopping, the marina, and dockside dining at the most popular restaurants in the area: Rum Runners and the Joint. Tarpon Point is also only a few minutes away. A park with a large playground, tennis courts, and basketball court is also in the neighborhood.

The city of Cape Coral is known as a boating community, as it actually has a larger amount of canals and waterways than the City of Venice in Italy.

The Yacht Club beach and playground is five minutes away, and the beautiful beaches of Ft. Myers and Sanibel Island are about a 40 minute drive. The tropical barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva are famous the world over for the fine shelling and Nature Reserve of Ding Darling. Also along the shoreline is Lover's Key State Park, rated in the Top 10 Beaches in the US on the Travel Channel.

Golf courses also abound in the area, and in nearby Fort Myers and Naples, that have earned the reputation of having some of the most sought after public and private courses in the world.
