About Paul Sachar

I am a businessman from Northwestern Pennsylvania. I have enjoyed vacationing in Southwest Florida for over 30 years. My day job is in education and finance. Cape Coral has always been a fantastic area for an escape from the pressure and fast pace of daily life. I have found that “the Cape” area is full of opportunities for fun or just a place for pleasant relaxation and rejuvenation.

Paul Sachar purchased this villa in 2014

Why Paul Sachar chose Cape Coral

Knowing the families who have called this property their home compelled me to purchase this beautiful home. When Casa Canal Raleigh became available, I was able to see the potential. I want to share this with others. Pictures do not always do justice to a beautiful home! I know you will love this vacation rental!

What makes this villa unique

You will find the spacious lanai, family, living, and dining rooms quite nice for entertaining or relaxing. The proximity to shopping and the Cape Coral Yacht Club Community Park and Beach make this truly a preeminent vacation spot. As we have done, take a day trip to Disney, Epcot, Coral Castle, Monkey Jungle, or Cape Canaveral, just to name a few. Maybe you’d like to sunbathe at Fort Myers Beach or deep sea fish in the Gulf. How about Golfing or taking in the games at the two Major League Baseball Spring Training venues. Don't forget breathtaking sunsets and fabulous shelling on Sanibel Island! Cape Coral has it all!

Guestbook comments from the manager

After 6 years of renting villas in Cape Coral for 3 to 6 months per year, we have finally found the one that has become a home away from home and not just another “rental” place. The location is great – close enough to downtown restaurants, shops, Farmers Market, etc. to enable us to walk there. But still in a nice, quiet residential neighbourhood of single family houses. Great for long walks.

The house is well appointed and very warm and cozy but not small. The floor plan makes the house seem quite large. The furnishings are very nice, with many cupboards, closets, walk-in spaces etc. The kitchen is well appointed, with facilities that would appeal to the cook in the family. And, super clean!

The pool is great and, being heated by both Solar and a Heat Pump, we could keep the water temp at a constant 88 degrees while still not being hit with high electricity costs.

But a main feature has to be the owner (Paul) and his kin (Ann and Dave) that live across the road and are available for information and can react to issues immediately. We have had experience with owners who live hundred of miles away and not able to provide assistance when problems arise. It’s wonderful to have great owners as neighbours. And they are great. Ann and Dave quickly became friends. You couldn’t ask for nicer folks.

When we return to Cape Coral we would rent here for sure! Wouldn’t even look at another place.

Really a Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent three months here and loved it. The house is well-maintained, with lots of extras including an outdoor barbecue, bar seating in the lanai, and a huge games cupboard. The size makes it perfect for having guests as it is comfortably divided into two living areas. Every bedroom has its own bathroom too. The piece de resistance though is the screened-in pool. It is impeccably maintained and lots of pool toys are provided. My grandchildren ages 3 and 6 visited for a week and had the time of their lives.

A huge bonus too, were our hosts, Dave and Ann Henderson. Any questions or needs were responded to immediately with such graciousness. They were so accommodating. We felt so at home and truly in a little bit of Paradise.

Location, Location, Location

Our family had a wonderful time and will definitely be looking to rent this property property in the future if we are in the area. The property was exactly as described. We really enjoyed the pool and fishing dock where we could fish and use the crab trap.

I would highly recommend this property.

Thanks Dave and Ann for all of your help.
