We live in northeastern Wisconsin and love to be outdoors in the beautiful summer months. It has been our dream to own a vacation home someplace warm where we can escape some of the cold winter months.

Gary & Deb Nadolny purchased this house in 2012

We traveled to Cape Coral several years ago to visit family in South Florida. We liked the area so much that we returned the next year and decided to purchase a vacation home of our own. Cape Coral is the ideal location close to the warm waters of the Gulf, a short drive to Fort Myers and world famous Sanibel Island and only a 2-1/2 hour drive to Walt Disney World in Orlando.

We wanted someplace quiet and relaxing yet close to golfing, fishing, boating, beaches, shopping and dining. We found the perfect home on a canal in a quiet, safe neighborhood and completely furnished and redecorated Villa Papaya in 2012. We have Gopher Tortoises and protected Florida Burrowing Owls nesting next door.

Very nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 3, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Property just as advertised. Quiet (almost desolate) area with very few neighbours. Not like most rental properties in FL. where houses just a few feet apart. Pool area very nice. We kept pool temp set at 86 and covered it after use. Extra cost for 4 weeks less than $200. Grocery store less than 5km away. A few restaurants in the area. Not a lot in the area for 3 - 4 year olds to keep busy if too cool for pool. Found a big playground about 10 min. away by car. Nice to have whole home DVR available. Internet speeds were reasonable. Lots of seating for a full house of guests.
Would have rented again next March but its already rented for the last two weeks of March 2015 while we were there. Too bad, not many 4 bedrooms available in the area. Might try again for 2016. Thanks to Gary and Deb.
Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay Len. If you are ever in the area again the kids might enjoy the Naples Zoo, Octagon Wildlife Sanctuary in Punta Gorda, or the Shell Factory which has a few animals and small animals the kids can pet. We welcome you back to Villa Papaya in the future.

Fantastic time!!

We had a fantastic week at the Villa Papaya. The house was great, the pictures don't do it justice!! Plenty of room for all of us. The pool was refreshing since it was so hot out. We went for bike rides and used the golf clubs. The fishing off the dock was great, caught alot of bass. Neighborhood was very quiet, which we loved!! We all really enjoyed our stay and didn't want to go home. Thanks Gary and Deb for renting out your wonderful place.
Some places we went to were Fort Myers beach ( a bit of a drive but really nice), Joe's Crab Shack (awesome food and service) and Naples's Zoo. We would definetly recommend this house.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review Sarah! We are glad you and your family had such a fantastic week and were able to enjoy the activities at Villa Papaya and the surrounding area. We want our guests to feel at home and have a relaxing vacation which is why we chose the quiet neighborhood. We hope to welcome you back to Villa Papaya!

My family spent Christmas week at the Villa Papaya in Cape Coral. We had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and larger than we thought from the photos. Very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was fully equiped and for the first time in many years of renting vacation homes, we had more than enough towels. The weather was great. My husband and I spent hours fishing off the dock with the grandkids. We used the two poles you have at the house and bought two more. We loved that the house was in a quiet neighborhood without a lot of neighbors. Sylvia the property manager was great answering all of our questions. The pool was a little cool but the kids didn't mind. We did turn the heater on for the days we stayed at the house. We went to Sanibel Island one day and spent the day on the beach. We found a lot of beautiful shells for the kids to bring home. I wouldn't change a thing about this vacation! Thank you Gary and Deb for letting us vacation in your home. We would recommend this property and stay there again if we come back to the area.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful comments Sue. We are happy your family enjoyed your stay at Villa Papaya and that you were able to explore the Cape Coral area. We want our guests to feel comfortable and just like they are at home away from home. We welcome you back to Villa Papaya at any time!

Wonderfully relaxing home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 29, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We really enjoyed our stay and found the home to be well maintained and appointed with just the right amount of things to do - bikes, fishing poles, pool toys, internet and TV.The beds and rooms were well decorated, clean and comfy and the number of rooms worked out well for us. The living room furniture was very comfortable to use for watching movies and having a blu-ray player (not just DVD) was a nice touch. The kitchen had everything necessary to cook good meals at home and my children loved the seating area around the kitchen. The home is a short drive to shopping and restaurants.

The Bad:
* We found that it was a good 45 minute drive to the nearest beach (Ft. Myers). We normally stay on Anna Maria Island so having to drive to a beach wasn't much fun.
* The home is in a sparsely populated neighborhood. We had hoped for other children for our children to play with.
* No shopping is within a walking distance and is difficult to reach by bicycle because of heavy traffic
* Some of the decorations are fragile - we ended up just storing them in a closet for our stay for fear of having our children break something!
* I wish more cleaning supplies were provided like a swiffer or dust mop to help clean the wood floor in the master bedroom and possibly some things to help clean the grill (or at least instructions on how they would like the grill cleaned).

* Having to pay for electricity usage during our stay was strange. While I understand it is common practice in the Cape Coral area, it still irritated me that we had to pay the bill if it exceeded $25 in usage per week.

The bottom line is that this is a newer property and is in great shape and you can tell that the owners intend to keep it that way. The home is very livable and comfortable and has just the right amount of everything without any clutter. The location is within an hour of good beaches and close to many things to do. After a long day at the beach, it felt amazing to come "home" and be able to relax at this property. My family has 5 children with ages from 3-16 and we were all very comfortable. The only complaint the children had was the distance for things to do and lack of neighbors. Given that they are used to just walking out the door onto the beach or walking down to a beach store, I understand thier concerns. Given the difference in size and price between this home and a beach property it was a compromise that we made. I would definately recommend this home!!
Owner's Response: We are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay Pete D. We really appreciate your positive comments regarding our home and decor. Thank you for storing the fragile decorations during your stay. We want our guests to be as comfortable as they are at home.

We would like to address a few of your concerns.

We chose a sparsely populated neighborhood for our home because we have had bad experiences with loud neighbors, traffic noise, and barking dogs, and many people prefer a relaxing environment while on vacation. This quiet neighborhood also allows for taking walks and bike rides with very minimal traffic. Shopping and restaurants are available three miles from our home.

There is a closer beach on the Caloosahatchee River in south Cape Coral at the Yacht Club Community Park and Beach which is only 11 miles away and has no parking fees. It also has a playground, fishing pier, and bbq grills.

As you mentioned, it is common in Cape Coral to charge for excess electricity. This allows home owners to offer a lower rental fee.

We hope to welcome you back to Villa Papaya in the future!
