Perfect Home for Two Families

  • 5 of 5

This house is really amazing. It's very spacious and has the perfect open floor plan for entertaining. We had 2 families staying at this home so it was 4 adults and 4 children between the ages of 5 and 9.

The pool can be seen from almost all the rooms so it was nice when we were preparing dinner in the kitchen and the kids were swimming. The shallow end was up to my 5 year old's chest and the deep end was over my head so maybe about 6 feet. The neighborhood is very quiet. It was lovely to sit on the dock in the mornings and read a book. My kids were able to feed a momma duck and her babies.

This house is a short driving distance away to a lot of fun things. We went to Sanibel island, mini-golf at Jungle Golf, a walk through Cypress Slough Preserve, Lakes Regional Park and to Ft Meyers beach. The best part of this house, however, is feeling relaxed and at home without the need to go anywhere!

The master bed was comfortable but soft. The master bath and closet are really spacious. The water pressure in the showers is very strong. The second bathroom is small but just fine. The whole house is decorated in a tasteful beach theme.

I enjoyed my stay immensely and would definitely come back again.

A Paradise Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This immaculate home is beyond what photos can illustrate. Guests are provided with the very best in luxurious comfort and amenities. From the plush towels to the comfortable beds we felt pampered and cared for. Joan was very quick to respond to any of our questions. Larry is just across the street and adds that onsite support to those new to this beautiful area of Cape Coral. This location is close to the very best in dining, boating and shopping. Sunsets on the wide canal are clearly visible from the hot tub in the beautiful pool and lanai area. Kayaking, biking to the nearby park and the list goes on. We can hardly wait to return and do it all again next year.

While I've stayed in other Florida homes this is the first I've rented. I have to say it was a pleasant surprise. My wife and I couldn't believe the size of the home and all the great amenities. The kitchen, living room, and dining areas were beyond spacious. We had another couple with us that shared the home and they have rented and owned several homes in and around Cape Coral. They thought this matched most of the places they had already experienced. It has a great pool area, southwest exposure, with hot tub and view of the large canal. It is close to the river, only one block off the access, great for boating. We had a great time just sitting around the pool area relaxing as well as enjoying all the near by restaurants. We loved the area it was in due to the quiet neighborhood, no traffic. We could only hear the birds. The only negative comment by the couple we were with was they thought the bed they slept in was not the best because they rolled together in the middle. Our master bed was very good though and this one negative was not enough to overshadow the great experience we had. I would rent this home again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jay for the great review. As I emailed you when you told me about your friends opinion of the bed they slept in, both Queen mattresses are quality name brand mattresses that are only two years old. We have rented all this season and no one else felt the Queen beds were uncomfortable. I certainly appreciate you taking the time to let me know this and as a precaution, I had the housekeepers flip both Queen mattresses, the current renters have found all beds to be comfortable. I am so glad you and your wife enjoyed your stay and truly appreciate you taking the time to write a review. I hope you have a great Spring and would love to rent to you in the future. Fondly, Joan

One of our greatest times ever

  • 5 of 5

The morning we left our home there was 16" of snow on the ground and a fresh 2" over night. After the plane ride and drive to Cape Coral, We found this area and property as nice as any tropical island we have visited. The weather was fantistic 80's every day and sunny. Great pool and hot tub time. The house is beautiful, clean, and in great shape and well maintained. We loved everything about it. So much that we hardly left except for food. I cooked on the grill almost every night. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the linni and leasurly afternoons by the pool and hot tub. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, as I was able to read two books comfortably. There is everything you need close by from dinning to boat rentals. However from playing pool, fishing on the dock,and just relaxing, we just enjoyed ourselves right here. We would, and intend to return here next year if possible. We would highly recomend this house to anyone.

Lovely villa, lovely area; all round great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa a while back; it's extremely lovely, spacious and modern. The view from the back of the villa is very picturesque and cape coral is lovely. We frequently took the short drive along to Fort Myers beach.
