Just want to relax? No problem….. Spending serene days by the pool, in the hot tub, fishing off the dock, watching the dolphins and manatees that frequent our canals or a day at the beach will have you relaxed and refreshed (keep reading!).Here are some of our favorite features of our Villa Savannah:OUR BEACHES: There is much versatility in our beaches and they are wonderful for kids too, with gentle sloping waters, no sudden drop offs and soft sand. We even provide the bucket and spade for building sandcastles, as well as other kid-and-baby-friendly items like a high chair, Graco Pak-N-Play and toys for the pool and beach so you can pack a bit lighter.Cape Coral Yacht Club beach is just 5 minutes away with a lovely pier where each morning you will see dolphin families frolicking in the water. A landscaped beach with playground equipment, BBQ grills, bathrooms and a fishing pier. There are also free tennis, racquetball and shuffleboard courts, horseshoe pits, and public boat ramp with access to all amenities at the Yacht Club and free parking. Keep your eyes peeled for the flock of green parakeets that roost there during certain seasons, they won't steal your lunch, but they are beautiful! Fort Myers Beach is ~15 minutes from Villa Savannah and boasts miles of white, sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, where the ocean floor slopes gently towards the horizon with no big waves. This beach is the perfect place to engage in watersports such as parasailing, kayaking dolphin eco-tours, jet-skiing, wave-runners or fishing charters – or simply relax and watch the breathtaking sunsets.Sanibel Island Beach is a short drive from the Villa. Sanibel Island is located along the Gulf of Mexico and is known for the amazing shells that can be collected when the tide goes out, luscious dining (seafood, of course!), fishing, boating, or just plain relaxation, a chance to get away from the hurly burly and draw closer to nature. Tucked in the secluded southeast corner of tranquil Sanibel Island there is a six-acre secret garden woven around a beautiful beach-side resort -- home to over 100 types of exotic and unusual flora and fauna.Lovers Key Beach is one of our four barrier islands that make up this state park. A haven for wildlife, the islands and their waters are home to manatees, bottlenose dolphins, roseate spoonbills, marsh rabbits, and bald eagles. The two mile long beach is popular for shelling, swimming, picnicking and sunbathing. GOLFING: For golf enthusiasts, there are 5 golf courses all within 15 minutes of the Villa. They are public or semi-private and each one is a bit different from the other, so you'll want to try them all!BOATING: Considering renting a boat? Villa Savannah is 10 minutes out to open water and in Florida, you don't need a boat license. Boat hire is readily available - the hire companies can deliver the boat directly to the back yard dock, so you can explore the many beautiful islands, restaurants and beaches only accessible from the water. We especially enjoy touring the islands and watching the families of dolphins that we often see in the canals and open water. We usually make a day of it and the take the boat to Cape Coral Cayo Costa State Park with over 9 miles of white sand beaches, shelling, nature trails, and bike rentals or tour Picnic Island. At the end of the day we enjoy dinner or drinks at many restaurants only accessible by water.SHOPPING: Cape Coral area is a shoppers' paradise from designer boutiques in Bell Tower to Miromar Outlets with over 140 designer and brand name stores and Tanger Factory Outlet mall. There are quirky shops at Cape Harbor so if you boat there for lunch, walk over to their quaint street of shops. We look but seldom buy at these stores as they are a bit pricey.DINING: There are more than 20 restaurants within 5 minutes of the Villa. Our favourites are Lady Lobster which has exceptional Fish & Seafood, Iguana Mia – known for its excellent fresh made Mexican food, Sicily Italian Tratoria, a small restaurant with great ambiance and all fresh from scratch, homemade Italian food and Brewbabies which has excellent French & Continental cuisine (but it's a little pricey).BIRDER WATCHING & UNIQUE WILDLIFE: Burrowing Owls, Manatees, Dolphins and more. Southwest Florida is home to some unique wildlife and it can be in your yard! We have seen manatees and dolphins in the canals at our Villa and there are burrowing owls on the block. 5 minutes from the Villa is our Great Florida Birding Trail, Rotary Park which has a rugged trail that is less than one mile long and passes through uplands & salt marshes. Possible wildlife sightings include tortoises, alligators, snakes and a large variety of wading & migratory birds. There is a boardwalk, so it is wheelchair accessible and passes through a mangrove with a broad area of oyster bars & shallow flats that is a good area to view wading birds, especially during low tide. Both trails have observation towers that people can climb to get a bird's eye view of the area.SAFETY: With 2 daughters, Safety is of utmost importance to us. Cape Coral is the fourth safest city of its size in all of Florida. It is also the safest Florida city for motorists and it was ranked the 6th Best Place to live in the United States by CNN Money Magazine.VILLA AMENITIES: Villa Savannah features LED flat screen TV's in every room and on the Lanai, a large sun deck and huge dock with boat lift. A family friendly environment, Villa Savannah extends to our little guests Graco Pack N Play (play-pen/portable crib) high chair, and pool/beach toys for your convenience.

“Lovely position on a dock”
This property is very pleasent. The position on a dock is great. Unfortunately, during my stay, it became apparent that the pool heating agreed was not working. The agent came out and said that something (I can't recall what) had been taken by someone. This suggests that it wasn't checked before our arrival. Also, the house phone did not work throughout our stay. The master bed was extremely uncomfortable. We tried the others, but they were no better. The wifi was very good and the pool (once heated), and hot tub where lovely. We did get an unexpected large bill at the end of our stay for the electricity, which, it seems is charged as a seperate item. I was told that it was in the contract I signed. I accept that it probably was. I didn't read the small print on this ocassion. I have been renting houses in Florida for 30 years and I have never encountered that before. I had asked the cost of pool heating and was provided with a figure. I hadn't realised that it was an approximate figure and that this cost would be added to all other electricity used and billed at the end of stay. Basically, there are pros and cons to this property. Its expensive and threw-up some suprises for us. Houses in Naples are similar prices, but the house electricity (in my previous experience) is included in the price and there is more to do locally. Its a very nice house, but I'm inclined to recommend taking one in Naples.
Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry that the $30 electric charge was a surprise to you as it is on the website, in the booking agreement twice (highlighted and underlined), in the Reservation Confirmation as well as in my e-mail to you and the exact reading was provided by Charlie, directly from the electric company website. A previous guest did damage the pool heater but I am glad Charlie was able to address it right away. Also, I wish you had made me aware that the storm took out the phone service so I could've had someone out there right away. all in all, I am glad you had an enjoyable vacation and would be happy to invite you back any time. All the best! Danielle
From the day that we arrived in the house, we loved the house. Very good location near the shops and restaurants, and still away from the busy roads. The house had it all, from large bedrooms until a well equipped kitchen, a nice swimming pool and what we liked the most was the hot tub next to the swimming pool. The owner recommended the address to rent a boat from Boats 'n More, and we had a boat to look around the waters around Cape Coral. Every day we saw some dolphins, even when we where still in the canals. Our vacation was to short, next time we will be definitely come to this house to see more of wonderful Florida.
“Wonderful & Memorable Vacation!”
Truly a lovely property. The house was set up with everything we needed for a wonderful vacation. The Villa itself is spacious and immaculately clean. All of the comforts of home and then some with very close proximity to everything including dining, shopping, beaches, and activities. The children loved the pool and we loved the hot tub. Fishing off the dock proved successful and our 7 year old was able to catch a few fish as well -- she was thrilled. Thank you Danielle for all of the information you provided. We rented a boat and were out on open water within minutes. Had a wonderful day on the Gulf of Mexico and docked the boat near Sanibel Island. We will be back again next year and will recommend to all of our friends. Thank you for a wonderful & memorable vacation.
We could not have asked for a more perfect house. My wife and I (and our 2 daughters 7 & 10) spent our anniversary at Villa Savannah and could not have asked for a more perfect house. The house is immaculate and very welcoming. Kitchen is well stocked and bedrooms are comfortable and roomy. The house is located right in the yacht club area very close to the beach, dining and shopping. On our 2nd day we saw a family of dolphins in the canal – needless to say the kids were thrilled as were we. Fished off the dock in the back yard and spent time at the Cape Coral Yacht club beach & pier. Kids loved the pool and preferred to be at the house more than the beach. From our initial inquiry to our deposit return, Danielle was always prompt and professional. All in all an absolutely wonderful vacation. Great for couples or families with kids of any age. Will recommend to everyone.
