Go, See, Travel | A Cape Coral Retreat: Palm Oasis Vacation Rental Experience 

As summer ended and with our kids requesting a trip to the beach, we decided it was time for a sunny retreat, and what better place than Cape Coral, Florida? Our choice of stay? A BEAUTIFUL, modern vacation rental that promises luxury, fun, and tranquility: Palm Oasis.

First Impressions:

Palm Oasis is not just a house; it’s an experience. Nestled by a saltwater canal, this new construction immediately charms you with its contemporary design juxtaposed against the serene waterscape. If you, like us, are wary about the impacts of Hurricane Ian, put your worries to rest. Palm Oasis stood tall, undamaged, and as beautiful as ever. 

This vacation home also was fully stocked for traveling with little ones! Including a dual-camera baby monitor, a 3-in-1 convertible high chair, a pack-n-play, and more.

The Oasis Within:

Walking inside, you’re immediately surrounded by tranquility. The brightness, the airiness, and the unmistakably luxurious yet cozy vibe of the place were all as promised (and pictured!).  Every corner of the home exudes modern elegance, with state-of-the-art finishes that are as visually appealing as they are comfortable.

The heart of the home — the expansive living room, boasts a 75” Smart 4kHD TV – an absolute delight for our movie nights. The fireplace adds that touch of cozy you wouldn’t think you’d need in Florida, but come evening, it became our favorite hangout spot while playing games and conversing about the day. And if the indoors was luxurious, the outdoor lanai was a slice of resort-style heaven (Check out the Lobster Lady, a nearby seafood market and bistro!). Morning coffees never tasted better than when sipped on while watching the kids splash in the heated pool.

The Master En-suite:

The Master En-suite – A Dream! The master en-suite was a sanctuary of its own. Stretching across the home, it offers a king-sized bed and direct access to the lanai. The accompanying bathroom, with its double sinks, soaking tub, and a rainfall shower, added indulgence to our stay.


Fun for All Ages:

Palm Oasis is a haven for families. Our kids were over the moon with the third bedroom. The full-over-full-sized bunk bed was a hit, and the attached twin pullout trundle meant our youngest kids could have a sleepover together. A family favorite was the newly added Infinity Game Board. Hours were spent playing Monopoly, matching, and puzzles — and the best part, there were no worries of missing pieces! 

The home wasn’t just about lounging and swimming (although we did much of that!). It came fully stocked with fun for all ages. Every day was a new adventure from the electric game table (Infinity Game Board), pool toys, board games, fishing poles, and outdoor games. And for those retro game lovers, the arcade games are a trip down memory lane.

The Host:

We can’t say enough of the hosts of the Palm Oasis! They were timely in all their communication and checked in with us during our stay. I loved their nifty digital guest book, including their favorite recommendations, how-to’s, and where to find things within the home. 


Venturing Out:
