Vacation rentals in Cape Coral
In Cape Coral most vacation rentals are located directly on the water. The city was equipped with a strongly branched, above-ground canal system during the settlement. The spacious vacation rentals and luxurious villas often have a large garden. Here - typical for Florida - palms and other subtropical plants grow. Many plots are equipped with their own boat docks, so that you can explore the canals by boat as you wish and perhaps also take a detour to the nearby area.Pools belong to a vacation rental in Cape Coral simply to it
Water can be found almost everywhere in Cape Coral. Nevertheless, many vacation rentals are rented including a pool, as private swimming pools are widespread in the region. They either stand freely in the garden or are protected at the house by a permanently installed glass pavilion. In addition to the majestic villas, there are also cosy apartments and elegant holiday apartments in the city. Often tenants of a vacation rental in Cape Coral have access to a pool.Luxurious details - inside and out
The villas already look magnificent from the outside. The large garages have wide gates to accommodate even the most powerful rental car. The entrance areas are very lavishly decorated with palm trees, flowering bushes and columns. In keeping with the image of the "Sunshine State" Florida, the houses are often painted in friendly colours. The rooms are in no way inferior to the external elegance, as the interior design is very impressive in many places. They expect light-flooded rooms with large windows and open kitchens, as they are usual in the USA.

Location and orientation
Cape Coral is located in the southeast of Florida, on the east coast of the USA. The city borders the Gulf of Mexico to the west and the Caloosahatchee River to the east. This is the natural border to the neighbouring town of Fort Myers. There is also the nearest airport.Find your way around Cape Coral
Cape Coral is relatively geometrical, which is especially due to the mostly straight channels. In addition, two main streets, Pine Island Road and Santa Barbara Boulevard, form the boundaries between four square neighborhoods. These quarters are named after their cardinal points, for example "Northeast". There are some islands off the coast. The largest is Pine Island in the west, followed by Sanibel Island in the southwest. At the sea you discover many kilometres with white sandy beaches and crystal clear water.
Travelers and Activities
As many vacation rentals stand alone and are surrounded by a large garden with pool, you can find peace and quiet here - in the middle of the city. If you wish, you can buy all the necessary food on arrival and then "disappear" to your villa for the duration of your holiday. You don't have to leave your property to sunbathe and swim. On the coast there are also lonely beaches, for example on Sanibel Island.Cape Coral for water sports enthusiasts
You can use the public waters not only for boat trips. At the Gulf of Mexico you have many interesting water sports possibilities. How about an exciting jet ski race or a casual sailing tour? Other activities include surfing, canoeing, fishing and more.
Things to know
Between June and November hurricanes can pass over Cape Coral. If you want to be on the safe side for your holiday, you should book your vacation rental outside this period. The subtropical climate makes Cape Coral especially attractive in spring and winter.Alligators in Florida
Alligators are omnipresent in Florida, but in waters and overgrown shore areas they are not so easy to spot. Always pay attention to warning signs and instructions and do not get too close to the shore. The reptiles must not be fed under any circumstances.
If you wanted to sail all the canals in Cape Coral with a boat, you would have a long time to do: In total, there are over 600 kilometres of navigable waterways here.
