We've had 2 fantastic weeks in this beautiful house and relaxing area.
This was exactly what we needed in addition to warm and sunny weather!
Hopefully we're loaded with enough vitamin D to meet the Norwegian winter. We can already say that we want to come back to the Ft. Myers/Cape Coral/Sanibel area & we definitely want to book your house once again.

A wonderful, relaxing holiday - the house was great! Sanibel & Captiva beaches are a must see- look out for osprey's fishing & wild dolphins swimming by. The Butterfly Estate in Ft. Myers was a gem of a place if you're into wildlife. Also try Banana Bay Tour Company for an amazing dolphin cruise. Finally, we recommend you try Famous Dave's BBQ. Amazing southern food, good prices & it always seems to be 2 for 1 at the bar.

We spent 17 wonderful days in this house and enjoyed each of them. Villa Marbella is pefect equipped, it really was not missing anything. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets by the pool with a cold beer in hand and a juicy steak on the plate. The care of cindi was perfect. We will definitely come back! Thank you very much for the wonderful time at Villa Marbella.

We had a wonderful stay at your home. It is very beautiful, as well as the area.We rented a boat for the day, deep sea fished out of Fort Myers Beach and did Corey Billies Air Boat Rides. We took advantage of the beautiful weather when we had it. Now back to snow and we'll miss waking up to a calming view for breakfast.

We had a terrific time in your truly BEAUTIFUL house. Cindi was a great help with everything. Her quick email response regarding any questions before arriving was greatly appreciated and she made the whole “VRBO vacation rental” experience stress-free.

The house had all the amenities we needed and the pool was delightful. The location of the house was perfect, making it very easy to get to all the places we wanted to visit. Sanibel and Captiva Island are a must see, South West Florida is truly paradise. Thanks, We'll be back!

Nice home, some issues

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 12, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
The home has a great floor plan, and was very clean! It was in a nice neighbourhood. The issues:
a)The pool is only solar heated, therefore if it is cool or no sun...don't expect to swim in the pool. We stayed for a full week, and the pool was too cool to swim in. I asked the owner about heating the pool (which I would have been happy to pay for), and he said that Floridians didn't swim in the pool in the winter, only tourists. Of course, I am a "tourist".
b) it is absolutely dark in the back of the home at night. I love sitting by the pool with the pool light on, and asked the owner how we turn the lights on at the back of the house. He indicated that because some tourists fare inconsiderate and forget to turn them off, he disconected them! So....no sitting by the pool or the canal in the evening. He proceeded to then tell me how much money he was loosing annually on renting the home.
c) The microwave wasn't working, so I called the owner, who told me he knew from the previous renter, and ordered the part that day. I would have appreciated the courtesy of him letting me know that it wasn't in working order without me having to call him three times before he responded to my vm message.
So, I only gave the home a three star as I wouldn't stay there again due to the above issues. However if these issues don't concern you, it is a beautiful home.
Owner's Response: The property is very clearly advertised as having a solar heated pool which costs nothing to operate. The pool was around 84 degrees when these guests stayed here and that was with a cold front that had just passed and the weather was far from hot. It is true most Floridian's do not use their pools in winter. The solar heating works very well and is popular in many homes throughout Florida. Even electric pool heating cannot heat a pool very well in Florida in the winter months when the temperatures are much cooler. Sometimes even in Florida the temperatures can get down to near freezing at night. No swimming pool will be warm enough to use then. In the Spring, Summer and Fall the pool can reach 90 degrees easily. In the winter, expect the temperature to be typically in the 80’s. Even the local water park in Cape Coral called Sun Splash is not open in the winter because people do not usually participate in water activities in the winter months. The sea temperature in the winter in the Gulf of Mexico will only be in the 60’s to 70’s.
There is outdoor lighting on the lanai/pool deck. The underwater swimming pool light has been disabled because guests left it on 24/7. It is very expensive to run and it can imbalance a pool when left on all the time. An underwater pool light is not that much of an important feature to complain about but these guests did make a big deal about it.
Unfortunately the microwave was not working and had been inspected by a technician the day before these guests arrived. This was unfortunate but a part was on order and the microwave has subsequently been fixed. Now and again appliances will break down in any home. We made every effort to get that matter resolved as soon as possible. That was actually the first appliance breakdown at this property in 7 years. The guests were given an emergency phone number for emergency use. None of the above three problems above were deemed to be a serious emergency for a late night phone call. The guests were called back at the home but they were out. So an email message was promptly sent instead. Every effort was made to accommodate these guests at this wonderful property which they paid just $125 per night for. That's like getting a 4 star hotel room for the price of a 2 star !!! Every other guest that has stayed here has never complained, never had any problems and has had a great time. Some have returned more than once because they enjoyed it so much.

Enjoy This House

  • Submitted: Feb 14, 2012

"What a great place to be! It was a positive experience to arrive here and to “come home” every evening after our skip-visits at other areas around Cape Coral. We loved the silence and style of the house, the furnishment concept (with all details you also have in and out home) was very much appreciated. It makes sense and fun to take care of that. This home is a nice and clean “spot” for a long time. We were also happy to be near the marina – your recommendation to have dinner at “Rumrunners” and at “The Joint” was top. Thanks a lot and all the best to you and your next guests. Enjoy Cape Coral, enjoy this house! "
