Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Karen!

Thank you for all of the information about Villa Ultima! We have been renting homes for our Easter vacation for about 6 years now and I have to say that you and Ed are certainly the most thorough and accommodating owners that we have dealt with. We are so excited about our upcoming stay at your home!

Thanks again,

Kim DiRienzo

The home had looked nice on line, but when we walked in, WOW. VERY nice.

  • 5 of 5

We have 8 adults (4 couples) and often have difficulty finding a home with 4 bedrooms and baths. The 2 master bedrooms on the main floor, a well supplied kitchen, 3 different places to eat or play cards, and the wonderful, private pool made the stay fabulous. We had met a local who gave us places to eat - Duffys, Finns, Lobster Lady, Fathom (a short walk) and Pinchers. We had great meals at all of them. The weather was in the low 80's all week. Ed and Karen's house is a winner.

This is an incredible special home. It not only gives you all of the comforts of your own home, but transcends you in comfort and beauty. The location is outstanding for boating and walking to your favorite restaurants.

Will definitely come again!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ultima was a perfect choice for our family! There is plenty of room.for larger groups. Ed and Karen put a lot of thought into this house and paid great attention to detail. It is equipped with anything you might need during your stay. It was nice to have beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers available for our trip to the beach and the kids enjoyed the awesome pool and toys.

Several nice restaurants are within walking distance. You will not be disappointed with this house.

This property was simply perfect. It is a beautiful house and it is well stocked with every thing you can image. The linens were 5 star hotel quality. The kitchen had every amenity you can imagine. I was able to cook a turkey on Christmas day and never wanted for anything. I could set a table including linens and lovely dishes. We went to the beach and had beach chairs, umbrella and even beach toys for the children. The owners checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed for a wonderful holiday. The house even had colored lighting that added to the ambiance. There was no skimping on anything. The house is beautiful, well stocked and accommodated my family of 11 beautifully with plenty of space. The pool was even heated to a toasty 90 degrees. This is a fabulous rental!

I wanted to give this rental a 10+

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed at all in renting this home. From unlocking the door to our time to leave brought so many memories. We will rent this home again. The only thing we found sad about this home was when we had to leave to come home to Michigan. Anytime we needed anything, Ed or Karen were only a phone call away. They make you feel like family. This home had anything and everything you could possibly need or want. The pool lights at night to the music playing when we arrived throughout the house was something unexpected and very easy to fall in love with.

Great place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful so was the pool area and dock. It was a great place to relax and we enjoyed our time in Cape Coral, it was the 1st. time we visited that area of Florida. The kitchen area was great, it had every utensil you could possibly imagine and then some. You could be in that area and enjoy your guests whether they were in the great room or out by the pool. My husband rented a boat and it was nice to have it so close, any time we felt like going out for a ride it was very easy to do. The area is very easy to get around, we played golf several times and had no problem finding a course to play. The house was very well stocked with anything you might need and that was something we really did appreciate, it was so nice to not worry about the little things. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone interested in a great area to vacation, this house had all the amenities you would ever need.
