About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 6 Pers. heated pool, western exposure, WiFi, Dock/Boat

The villa is located on a 1000 m² property with 175 m² air-conditioned living area and a large facing West terrace area with a pool with electric heating. The villa was built in 2000 and offers typical features of a modern Florida Home: high ceilings and a specific floor plan. In 2010, the house has been completely renovated and newly furnished. The open design, the colours and the interior area give the house a sunny, Mediterranean-Caribbean atmosphere. Extra-large French windows at the entire façade offer an unobstructed view over the swimming pool until the canal, the dock and the rentable motor boat on the lift. The entire pool area with terrace (about 150 m²) is protected by a screen which protects you from mosquitoes. You can enjoy the warmth of the Florida nights alfresco and have a BBQ with the large gas grill. Enjoy the American way of life in a very private atmosphere.

Distribution: The living area consists of a large living/dining room with American kitchen (open design) with high ceilings, 50' flatscreen TV, home theatre system, kitchen with breakfast bar, large American fridge with icemaker, completely equipped for 6 persons, breakfast nook with view of the pool and the canal.

Master bedroom with extra-large bed, bathroom with large walk-in shower and dressing room.

2 bedrooms, one with king-size and one with queen-size bed, bathroom with tub and direct access to the pool area.

Pool area with large, shadowy terrace table underneath the roofed terrace, sunloungers, parasol.

Large 'Captain Walkaround Dock' with lift up to 10.000 lb, for your own boat you will need our aproval to use the lift !!!

Large garage for your rental car with electric gate opener.

Rent a boat: Cape Coral is a paradise for boating lovers, and: in Florida you do not need a boating licence! If you never manoeuvred a boat before, do not worry: after a detailed instruction - in theory and in practice – you will become a happy, secure captain. Nothing will stand between you and the next boat trip to the surrounding islands with a stop at one of the numerous waterfront restaurants.

For example, we can offer you our Hurricane Sundeck 237, a Deckboat that is very suitable for boating trips to the barrier islands. You can also snorkel, swim, collect shells and watch dolphins and manatees.

Because of the high demand for rental boats in Cape Coral, we highly recommend to early take care of the rental. We offer attractive prices to the renters of the Villa Rainbow. Please enquire.

Specialities: Within only few minutes by car, you find 3 German bakeries and basic shopping facilities like a Publix and a Walmart 24hours.

The personal support of our guests is especially important to us; therefore we will be available on site during your entire vacation. Check-in and check-out will also be done by us personally.

Don't look further, you have found your dream villa for a perfect holiday.

We would be more than happy to welcome you as our guests soon!

Nice property

  • 3 of 5

The property is in a nice location and well maintained. We would have enjoyed our stay with our grandchildren if the pool had been heated as advertised. When I asked the owner why the pool was not heated for us, she laughed and said " you never asked about it"

She was cordial upon our arrival, but became angry when I told her we had rented a boat from another rental agency. Due to that, we were not allowed to use the lift, making it impossible to dock our boat there, due to the dock being above the water level. We could not safely board the boat, especially with children. Mid week, owner docked their boat on the lift in front of the rental property.

A $500 Cash deposit is required upon arrival and the electric meter is read. Upon checkout, renter is charged for Electric.

Propane for grill was completely empty when we arrived. We had to go and have it filled before we could prepare dinner.

Each room and area is inspected prior to check out.

In our case, we had to clean the grill to like new condition or be charged $50. After meeting Karin's expectations, we did finally, get our $500 back.

We checked out one day early. Property is comfortable, however owner's attitude made it unpleasant for my Family.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry and don´t agree at all with your writing. We had never had a dishonest tenant, who would simply bring in two instead of one registered dog. At the checkin I agreed with the fact that two larger dogs live in our house. Where would they go with the second dog, if I had said no? Alone this was already very generous of me. Furthermore, this tenant was asking us for a boat offer, and then decided to rent a boat somewhere else. This is not a problem at all, if the dishonest tenant informed us, or asked for it. In our statutes, which can be read for everyone on HomeAway, it is clear that the landlord must first be asked to land an external boat at our dock. I at the place of this tenant would be quite quiet and would rather see my own mistakes than to give the Villa Rainbow therefore only a moderate rating.

Great villa and canal view. We enjoyed our stay here at Karin and Peters Rainbow villa.

We had everything we needed and were able o enjoy use of the boat for 2 wks. The weather was superb and we enjoyed visiting beaches esp Sanibel. Lots of shopping and some great restaurants. Great time in southwest Florida!

Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the villa for 11 days and we truly enjoyed our stay. The villa is absolutely breathtaking. The curb appeal, view out to lanai, pool and canal were nothing short of amazing. House has all of the comforts of home. We enjoyed most of our time outside on the lanai and the location is perfect with ez access to grocery, restaurants and places like Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel Island. We would rate this as one of our top 3 vacations in 20 years and we travel quite a bit.

Lovely Villa in Good Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very clean and well maintained villa. The description provided was absolutely spot on and the villa itself was bettter on arrival than in the photographs. We were four adults and a toddler and there was more than sufficient space for us in what is a very comfortable and well appointed house. The owners, Peter and Karin, were very helpful and we also rented a boat from them for the week which was a lovely way to see Cape Coral and surrounding areas. There are numerous supermarkets and restaurants within 5 minutes drive. We would definitely recommend this villa to others and hope to be back ourselves one day.

Very nice villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Villa Rainbow last week. We found the villa to be very clean, well-maintained and fully equiped. The location is great with a huge westfacing pooldeck. Good fishing in the saltwater canal from the boat dock. For boaters it is really just about 5 minutes to the river. The owners (Karin & Peter) live also in Cape Coral, just minutes driving from villa Rainbow. They are very nice and helpfull people and can be reached easely when needed. We also rented a boat from Peter. He gives a real good "captains instruction" explaning the local situation, navigation etc. and taking his renters to the river for a "testdrive". The boat was also in top condition..

We like to rent a different villa every time we go to Cape Coral (5x now) but we will certainly come back here again..

The villa Rainbow is located in the southeast of Cape Coral, an idyllic lagoon city in southwest Florida. Because of the numerous canals (more than 400 miles) it is also called 'Venice of America'. Located on a peninsula, Cape Coral is connected with Fort Myers by several bridges. It is a modern designed city without high-rise buildings, urban canyons or industry – instead, spacious and luxurious villas with private pools and landing stages, blooming flowers year-round, citrus trees & palm trees. Cape Coral is considered the most secure city in Florida. In the surroundings you find everything you could wish for. Sea, beach, golf, water parks, all water sports facilities, large shopping malls, e.g. Miromar Outlet in about 30 driving min. Golf enthusiasts can enjoy several golf courses. If you are looking for an 'island atmosphere', Sanibel & Captiva Island are easily reachable. From the International Airport Fort Myers you can reach your holiday villa within 30 min by car.

Other Activities: Motor boat

Golf: The mild winter and the breezy summer allow you to play golf year-round. Marvellous 18-holes golf courses are easily reachable in the surroundings for all levels of proficiency.
