When you arrive in Cape Coral, you’ll notice two things: one, the sun will usually be shining and two, there are hundreds of canals. The city – which was purpose-built in the 1950s from reclaimed land – has the most extensive canal system of anywhere in the world, earning it the nickname of the “Venice of Florida”. More popular than Miami and Orlando with holidaymakers, the Cape gives easy access to Gulf Coast beaches, golf courses and waterparks – plus wildlife tours to spot manatees, herons and ibis, too. As boating is so big here, grab the opportunity to launch straight off your own private jetty at many of these luxury villas in Cape Coral – bookable on Culture Trip.

You and up to five friends will be living the high life at this villa in Cape Coral. Every thought has been put into luxurious levels of comfort – from the fully screened lanai with its pool, heated in winter, to the stacks of fluffy towels and beach goodies provided. The lounge is perfect for family movie nights – complete with a 65″ TV, corner sofas and three recliners. Tie your rental boat to the private dock, store your rental car in the private garage and settle in.

Villa Emerald Coast - Private Villa, for a family-friendly holiday

The key word at this holiday let is “pool” as the large open-plan living area features both a large heated swimming pool – and a pool table. It makes this an excellent villa for families on holiday in Florida as adults can easily keep an eye on swimming children – while playing games or making drinks at the poolside bar. Four bedrooms – two kings, one queen and one twin – feature minibars, coffeemakers and free toiletries, for that real home-from-home appeal.

Villa Turquoise Coast, for a weekend in the water

This name “Turquoise” might well apply to the sparkling L-shaped pool at this rental – which also comes with a separate pool for kids, hot tub and views from loungers over the canalside patio adjoining your own private marina. If biking is more your thing than boating, that’s also provided with a variety of cycles for hire on-site. When you’re done exploring, return for a poolside barbeque or to slouch on the corner sofa in front of the flat-screen cable TV.

Villa Bermuda, for a little romance

Located on the more elegant end of the Cape Coral spectrum, there’s a real feel of Southern hospitality to this three-bed villa. Sofas have the distinguished whiff of Chesterfield, dining chairs are fancy and the kitchen shines with polished granite and chrome. If you’re looking to entertain or be entertained, this is the one – there are two bars and four dining spaces, with one down on the private dock. Just the spot for romantic sundowners.

Villa Sophia by Vacationhit, for infinity pool illusions

Presumably, the “Sophia” in the name is “Loren” – as this villa has all the charm and glamour of a matinee idol. The double-height lanai floods the front of the property with light, offering views from the first-floor balcony – as well as creating the illusion of an infinity pool, as swimmers and hot-tubbers gaze directly out onto the palm-fringed canal. Sleeping eight, the four bedrooms are all large – the total square footage of the property is over 3,000 (278sqm) – and have their own balconies and terraces. Cape Coral Yacht Club Beach is just a nine-minute drive, too – but Villa Sophia might just be too alluring to ever leave.

Villa Malibu by Vacationhit, for lovers of design

Design fans will love this three-bed villa, from the art-deco-style rectangular pool and hot tub to the monochrome open-plan living space. The latter has been curated for year-round comfort: a home-cinema-level entertainment package, modular sofa and wall-set gas fire. A separate home office means the WFH brigade is well catered for – while the standalone bath caters to those who need a little me-time. When it comes to dinner, there’s a fully equipped chef-style kitchen and the gas barbecue – or plenty of restaurants, just a five-minute drive away.

Villa Southbreeze by Vacationhit, for vacation fun with Fido

A sister home of Villa Malibu, this three-bed also comes with all the juicy amenities above – including two king and queen beds. Unlike many Cape Coral villas, your dog is also welcome here. Both homes are just a short drive from the beaches, Palmetto-Pine Country Club – bring your clubs for the 18-hole course – and Rotary Park, where you’ll find walking trails, flower gardens, wildlife hides and a dog run for Fido.

Villa Cape Harbour by Vacationhit, for your inner-sailor

Right down at the southwest of the Cape – near to Tarpon Point Marina – this is a top choice among sailors, anglers and anyone wanting to get out and explore the ocean. Tie up your boat to your private jetty, or rent one at the marina – where you’ll also find high-end shopping and dining options. The villa itself feels roomy and luxurious – from the high-ceilinged open-plan living room to the large swimming pool with built-in oval hot tub and bedrooms with king and queen beds; one with a huge sunken bath in the en-suite. This is a cracking choice – whether you’re hoping to set sail or just lie by the pool and drink daiquiris all day long.
