While the rest of the world calls that area beyond their sliding glass back doors patios, decks, and occasionally balconies, Floridians recognize the areas as lanais. Often screened in to prevent creepy crawlies from crashing your al fresco dinners, the spaces also often contain swimming pools, hot tubs, and barbecues for all your meat charring needs, and when you choose this villa in Cape Coral, Florida, for your vacation accommodations during your upcoming Cape Coral getaway, you have to expect that our Vacanza 3 bedroom, 2 bath escape will have a lanai to remember, and you will be absolutely correct in your expectations. Villa Lanai offers family comforts to go along with that stunning lanai visible from a wall of windows that take up the back section of the house and your adventures within promise to be the ones you remember most upon your return to real life!
Sherbet Dreams and Comfortable Adventures
Offering a red tile roof over its orange sherbet-hued stucco walls, this traditional Florida escape welcomes all who step through its arched entry with cheer and grace. Its location on one of the many canals that traverse the edges of Cape Coral, the water at its back provides tranquility that complements the serenity found inside; step inside your newest happy place and prepare to fall in love! The door opens into a semi-open concept floor plan providing wood floors that create paths to spaces filled with warmth and comfort. A living room is located off to your right visible with your first steps inside. Furnished with soft leather reclining furniture, all facing a state-of-the-art television resting comfortably inside an impressive built-in, braced by elegant columns on either side, this room is great for game playing, television watching, or reading the books you packed with you for your plane trip.
The dining room is open to the first living area, providing a glass table surrounded by comfortable cushioned chairs that enable guests to spend as much time as they like on these seats without their own seats feeling achy! Play games, build puzzles, or engage in Cape Coral planning sessions in this space as you figure out what adventures you will have each day; a wall of windows looking over the lanai and a chandelier hanging from the ceiling over the table ensure that this room is always bright! Walk through the archway that divides the dining room from the kitchen and discover the heartbeat of this family home. Light and bright and offering a ceiling fan in the coffered ceiling, stainless steel appliances bring the joy back to your cooking experiences and stone countertops provide a cool space to roll out cookie dough or to sit and enjoy a bowl of cereal in the cushioned rattan barstools placed in front of the expansive breakfast bar.
This cheerful space opens into a secondary seating area, one furnished with more plush leather furnishing and offering a view onto the screened-in lanai just beyond. Adding whimsy to the space, a painting of sea birds “marching” in step hangs over the sofa, and another state-of-the-art television is placed on its own stand next to the sliders. And although this would normally be the time in which we would shine our spotlight on the tranquil bedrooms, we think it is actually the perfect time to explore the space for which Villa Lanai is named.
Surprisingly large, especially when compared with the size of the home, the lanai is simply everything. Sidle up to the Tiki Bar off the kitchen for a fresh rum runner, relax in comfort on the circular rattan outdoor sofa on one end or enjoy an al fresco feast at the patio table with room for 6. A third television resides out here under the covered patio and a mini-fridge keeps beverages cold and ensures that your slippery wet tiny humans don’t have to run into the home every time they want a drink! A shiny barbecue grill will entice the hubs to char a meal for the family and lounge chairs surround the cool body of water, offering the perfect place for a tanning session as the kiddos practice their cannonballs in the pool.
This outdoor space is guaranteed to be your favorite spot in Villa Lanai, especially as the views of the canal that passes by just outside the lanai will bring peace to your heart! A private dock is a great place to moor your rented boat, ensuring that your days will be filled with watery adventures you will wish never had to end!
Sleep is the Ultimate Luxury
Villa Lanai offers room for up to 6 people to live together happily and in harmony, and once you manage to tear yourselves away from the lanai, the bedrooms will speak to your soul. The master suite features a plush king bed and overstuffed chair that could be the perfect spot to read, watch tv, or let your toddler sleep when the other 2 rooms are too scary and too far away! Offering a private entrance to the pool area and an elegantly tiled ensuite bath featuring a walk-in shower and dual vessel topped vanity, this room is special! The remaining two bedrooms, both featuring queen beds are also tranquil and equally special. One guest room offers a desk for online work needs and the second is painted a cool Florida green and shares access to the main bath with the first guest room. A laundry room with a cute shell-framed mirror and a full-sized laundry sink finish up this tour of our stunning Villa Lanai.
