Lovely Holiday Home
We loved our stay at Cape Coral - it was like home from home - everything you needed and more - each room has sliding glass doors that lead out into the pool area and it was great to chill by the pool and watch the boats go by. Diana was brilliant as we flew out just after Hurricane Irma - she was in contact beforehand letting us know of any problems - was so accommodating and easy to contact. We will definitely be going back - thank you for an amazing time......
Great, Awesome, Relaxing atmosphere!!
My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay at your home!! I would definitely return to your home again...both Diane and Douglas were awesome with quick emails and accommodating our needs. Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
Very nice and relaxing home to spend three weeks in great weather.
This is the second year in a row we have rented this Villa and if we were coming back to this area of Florida next year we would rent it again. We want to see a different area of Florida if we come down next year. This is a great location, quite quiet, not a lot of traffic and is central to a lot of things to see and do in the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area.Easy to get to Pine Island, Sanibel, and other parks, preserves and beaches.
We gave this Villa 5 star rating however as with most homes, our own included, there are some things that need repairing and updating.Nothing major and nothing that would keep us from renting this location again. Overall we had a great time, the pool was very relaxing and we used it nearly every day. There were three bicycles in the garage to use and a Kayak on the dock to use in the canal which is a great place to go kayaking.
Great house, good location, great outdoor living, wonderful pool area and canal dock
Comfortable and clean, with many places to sit inside and out. Owners very responsive to any questions. Nice quiet neighborhood.
We rented the house for 4 weeks. Upon our arrival we found the house was dirty. The kitchen counters, ceramic and carpeted floors had food crumbs and other debris on them. There were dirty marks on the toilets. Tables that tvs were on were so dusty I could write my name on them. There was no assistance from owners to correct the problems. We had to clean the house ourselves. The vacuum cleaner was almost useless. While we really liked the pool and deck area, the adjoining patio with lovely table, chairs and a chesterfield had a white powder covering the tiles and we never received an answer as to what that was, so we swept and washed it ourselves. The steam iron emptied most of its water on my top when I tried to iron it, which came running out the bottom of the iron. There were no remote controls for the DVD players so couldn't use them. We were told that the remotes were there but previous rentors had misplaced them. Speakers for the stereo system were not hooked up so we couldn't use it. The front outside entrance doors were in need of painting along with a lot of the inside of house. Paint was peeling off living room wall and ceiling. The frypans were very badly used and everything stuck to them so we bought our own and brought them home. The hot and cold taps in kitchen were reversed. The beautiful comfortable chesterfield was outside on the patio, while we sat on a lovely looking leather chesterfield inside that we sank at least a foot in when we sat down, it was very uncomfortable. We couldn't use the garage to park our car because the owner's car was too far over to allow any other car in. In January it gets cold and there were comforters on the beds but that wasn't enough and there was only one blanket for 5 beds. There was no linen closet and only one extra set of sheets for the queen bed in masterbedroom, no extras for other beds. The top of the clothes dryer was very rusty so it couldn't be used to put clothes on and there was no laundry basket, but there was a clothes hamper for dirty clothes. The house was in need of repair and maintenance, pictures for proof. The kitchen island while it looked beautiful, the end of it wasn't secured and was being held up by a garbage can on one side of it and a chair on the other. The beds weren't very comfortable and there were no headboards on any of them. There was no contact phone number is case of troubles. After years of renting in Florida, house was a disappointment.
This review does not portray an accurate picture of our property. The claim that the house was dirty when that arrived is totally untrue. We the owners prepared the house a couple of days prior to their arrival and can assure everyone that the house was exceptionally clean. We had cleaned the house from top to bottom. This claim distressed my wife as she is very house proud. The vacuum cleaner and the iron were checked and are both OK. We used them prior to us leaving the house. There are no remotes for the DVD players but still work. We do have Roku and Smart TV and a Netflix subscription and WiFi. Most people do not require DVD players as Netflix provides a huge choice for all tastes and ages. I an not aware of any speakers disconnected.The garage was not included in the description of the house. The lounge suite has soft foam cushions but they are in good condition. It is the design type. The dryer has some exterior rust but works fine. We have a clothes hamper but no basket.
The reason for only one extra set of linen was that the original request on HomeAway's form was for 2 only persons for 4 weeks which we based our price on. It turns out that there were 2 more adults and 2 children for the first ten days. The guests never asked for a change of linen or extra bedding. If they had we would have provided what they needed. Saying that there was a working washer and dryer. We have never before had feedback about the beds being uncomfortable. We are very disappointed with this review and the attitude of the guests. They contacted us shortly after they arrived complaining about the cleanliness. When we questioned them they said they already cleaned so we were unable to verify their claim. I do not know what their motive was to make false claims but can only surmise that they were seeking some form of compensation but were knocked back when we told them that we had accomplished the cleaning ourselves. What they failed to mention were the new leather suite and rug in the front lounge, the new sun loungers and rattan table and chairs around the pool,and the year old oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, electric kettle, toaster etc in the kitchen.The extended pool cage is just a year old.The house is in good condition. The paint peeling on the ceiling is the result of horizontal rain blowing in during Irma. It will be painted when it dries out.The new island has cosmetic covers on the side. One of these must have come undone and will be refitted.
Very comfortable stay!
The hosts were very accommodating and the house was Perfect! Great value and I would recommend to anyone!
