I am a registered architect and this is my dream home. Thanks for considering Villa Driftwood! Andrew Churchill, AIA Indiana Registered Architect #8600327 Florida Registered Architect #AR0016177

Andrew Churchill purchased this villa in 2009

Ft Myers is far enough south that warm weather is pretty reliable. My brother lives on Sanibel (about 30 minutes away), so I was familiar with the area. After many months of searching, I found my perfect vacation home. As an architect, I recognized both a great home and an ideal location. I enjoy vacationing here with my 19 & 21 year old sons and look forward to retiring here someday. My brother, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, owns the only horse farm on Sanibel (as far as I know), so I have family ties here. I don't rent any other houses, so all my attention is focused on making this 'home'.

Walking to the beach!! Watching the sunset over the water!! Playing in the pool!! The privacy of 2 master bedrooms. Did I mention Walking to the Beach...!!!

VERY SPECIAL VACATION WITH FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Huge home, every one had private bedrooms and baths. Loved bathroom by pool, with grandchildren was great. Walking distance to beach, picnic tables,didn't eat at restaurant but did go for drinks. Quiet neighbor hood which was good with 7 month twins. TV remotes was a challenge at first once they figured it out was fine. Perfect vacation.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay here. Our home is great for a large group of 10 like yours.

I arrived the day after you left and found there were no batteries in the remote for the receiver. I have replaced those, so hopefully future guests won't experience this issue.

FABULOUS HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in Florida for the last 5 years now and this was easily the best house we have stayed in. It exceeded all our expectations after months of anticipation. Andrew helped make the booking process very straight forward and answered a number of questions we had ahead of our stay. Upon arrival we found everything spotlessly clean and in good order. The house was very spacious as was the pool and it's surroundings. We bought some cheap fishing rods from Walmart and spent many hours on the large dock being ignored by the local aquatic life! However, after much patience they started to bite and we caught quite a few cat fish. It was great to have the yacht club and beach just a short walk down the road where the kids loved the beach and we managed a few games of tennis and shuffleboard. If you are into your (real) football is was a bonus to have English Premier League games on the (massive) TV's. There were 3 games on back to back on the Saturday we were there. Great to be able to jump in the pool at half time!
Overall, it was a fantastic house which made our holiday truly memorable.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We loved this home! Some friends also stayed with us and we loved the fact that there is plenty of room with many doors opening to the pool patio. Kitchen is well equipped and spacious. Pool says it is heated, but it is with a heat pump and the way it works the water did not get above 82 degrees. It was fine for some of us, but not others. The patio area is big and overlooks the canal. The guys were out fishing everyday by 7am and caught many fish. They loved it! We also brought our kayak to tour the canal with. We found a great place for happy hour drinks & music only 3 mi away. It is called the Monkey Bar. They also have a great menu. We had some minor issues that Andrew addressed immediately. The yacht club is within easy walking distance and it includes docks for fishing as well as a nice beach. We hope to return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, Cassie.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back for your 2 week reservation in October 2014.

I believe the pump and heater were not run together as noted in the instructions.

I get daily electrical usage readings online, and I did not see readings which would indicate the heater was running. The electrical usage ranged from 50- 70 kWh/day, which is not enough to run the pool heater.

The default settings are heat off and pump setting for filtration/cleaning (6 hours/day). If the pump is not running, the pool heater does not run because it has no way to transfer the heat.

The pump timer needs to be adjusted as detailed in the pool instructions if the guest wants additional heat.
Our pool service company checked the equipment and confirmed everything was working properly.

Since it is a heat pump, as are most FL pool heaters, the efficiency drops with the temperature.
But most people don’t want to go swimming when it is cold (50-60), anyway.

See you in October!

WEDDING/HONEYMOON GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We loved loved loved this house! My husband and I had not been to Florida before and this house made it that much better! We went to Florida to get married on 12/12/12 @ Cape Coral Yacht Club and this house is 2 blocks away from there!
We loved the pool and kept it heated the entire time! There is so much space! There is not a small room in the house! The house is up to date as well!
Location is awesome! There are grocery stores, resturants, a fishmarket, and the beach are nearby! And Fort Myers is at your fingertips!
Enjoyed the cocnuts, banana tree, and the seashells in the backyard!
The pictures are acurate! There is even a margita machine in the kitchen now! The property was very clean when we arrived!
We could bike, swim, layout, fish, rent a boat, walk to the beach, so much to do!
Andrew, the owner, is very helpful and there are instructions at the house incase you need them! Also, menus of all the resturants!
My husband and I honestly did not want to have to go after a week!
We will be back at that house in the future!! But this time, with the little ones!!

Located in warm sunny Southwest Florida, Cape Coral is the Venice of Florida, featuring over 400 miles of canals. Cape Coral adjoins Redfish Cove at the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River and is only than 30 minutes by boat to the open waters of the Gulf.

The desireable Yacht Club area of Cape Coral is the birthplace of Cape Coral and is named for the pulic Yacht Club Municipal Park and Marina just a few hundred yards away.

If you are a boater, be sure to consider a few things in choosing your rental villa.

1. How long does it take to get to get out of the idle zone to open water? Some canals are 'landlocked' or you may need to spend an hour or two at idle speed to get to open water. Villa Driftwood is approximately 1/2 mile, (5-10 min).

2. Is it direct access (no bridges or locks) & deep enough? Villa Driftwood provides approximately 5' deep direct 'sailboat' access.

3. Is there a marina with support facilities nearby? The Yacht Club has a full marina and boat ramp.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, shelling, wildlife viewing, spa, racquetball, basketball, mini golf, shuffleboard, hot air ballooning
