Florida South Central Gulf Coast
Great time at Cape Coral
Submitted: December 10, 2012

My husband and I had a great time staying at Villa Champagne (we couldn't find the champagne though!). We had holidayed at Cape Coral previously so we knew what to expect and had an idea of the distances from beaches, shopping malls etc. If you want to visit the beach every day then I would suggest Cape Coral is not for you.
We were happy to have a very relaxing time lounging by the lovely pool- it was a little chilly at first but after a couple of days the pool heating had warmed it enough for us to use ( we are from the UK though and apparently we will swim in freezing water!). I loved the variety of seating outside- from the table and chairs for breakfast, to sun loungers for a spot of sunbathing to the sofa for reading. The villa was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The TV, music and free wifi were very good and the free local and international telephone calls were an added bonus. My husband thinks a set of golf clubs would have been the icing on the cake as it would have saved him renting them. He can recommend the nearby Palmetto Pines municipal course- excellent course, welcoming to visitors and reasonably priced.
We chose this villa partly because we wanted the use of push-bikes and there were a selection in the garage but the week flew by and sadly we didn't use them at all. We obviously spent too much time relaxing! We did venture down to the beach at the Yacht Club - if you go stop and have a cheap beer ($1) at the pier bar and watch the sunset. We also visited Matlacha and Pine Island - it's a must if you want to experience the 'real Florida' and Thursday evenings at Bert's Bar for lovely food and live music is well worth a visit too.
Emmanuel, the owner, was excellent throughout the booking process and Kurt, the agent, was full of useful information. We have been travelling to Florida for some 20 years and wouldn't hesitate to rent this villa again.
