About sylvie

My husband and I are from Belgium, we used to travel to the US for 10 years. We fell in love with Florida and decided to buy a vacation home in Cape Coral in 2007. We bought a home that we transformed into our dream home. We love and enjoy our stays very much. We want to share our piece of paradise with others and that's why we decided to rent it out.

sylvie purchased this villa in 2007

Why sylvie chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Cape Coral is a vibrant and friendly hometown community with all the beauty that you expect from Southwest Florida. With over 400 miles of canals - boating, fishing, and watersports. All you need to do is go out your back door, onto your dock, into your boat, and in minutes you're playing in the Gulf of Mexico. Cape Coral boasts 114 square miles of land and is the largest city in Southwest Florida, the largest between Tampa and Miami. With golf courses, tennis courts, boat ramps, athletic parks, natural preserves, and more, the quality of life in Cape Coral is second to none.The city has one of the best recreation departments in the state, providing all kinds of recreation for young and old.

Fastastic view down canal w/beautiful pool/lanai

  • 5 of 5

We didn't want to leave this home at the end of the week. I could have slept on the lanai and been happy! Upon arrival we had some minor bleeps but the management company was very helpful. The only thing that we missed in this home was internet access. You do need to bring your own fishing equipment as well.

The home was well kept and clean. Home would be great for 2 couples as there is 2 master bedrooms. It is also large enough for a family.

We got great enjoyment in feeding all the turtles in the canal. We started out feeding 4-5 at a time and by the last day we had 21 at once. We also starting getting sea gulls, fish and ducks stopping by at feeding time. Hint: buy a 17lb. to 20lb. bag of dry cat food and it will last for the week (all the wildlife loved the cat food!).

The boat was fantastic. It is a really nice boat - rode great even when windy and in rough water. All amenities on the boat you'd possibly want.

This is a wonderful home in a great location. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends. There is a huge lanai and large pool unlike some of the other rentals available. The owners and the property management company (Sascha) were very helpful and easy to work with.

You can't go wrong in renting this home. It is truly enjoyable.

Thanks to Eric and Sylvie for sharing their home with us!

Erholsam und einfach nur schön!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns im Haus direkt wohl gefühlt. Zwei von den drei Zimmern sind super schön, mit direktem Zugang zum Aussenbereich. Eines davon dazu noch sehr comfortabel mit riesigem Bad. Das dritte Zimmer ist zweckmäßig, aber auch nett.

Der Innenbereichen mit Küche ist sehr gemütlich. Küchenutensilien sind ausreichend vorhanden. Ein erstes 'Welcom-set' wäre ganz nett. Etwa wie Spühltaps, Küchenrolle, Müllbeute und Handseife in den Bädern.

Der Aussenbereich ist wirklich toll!!! Unser absolutes High light!

Was zu verbessern wäre:

- Die Klimaanlage funktioniert zwar im Wohnbereich gut, kommt aber in einem der Zimmer (das mit den großen Bad) kaum an, während es in den anderen Zimmern hingegen etwas zu kalt wird.

- Eine Überprüfung der Gasflasche für den Gasgrill. Bei unserem ersten Grillsbend ging direkt die Flasche leer. Ärgerlich bei einem T-Bone Steak.

Wir würden definitiv wiederkommen!

very pleasant rental. The pool was wonderful and the pool drapes were a fantastic idea for the afternoon sun. Bed very comfortable and kitchen full of amenities. Close to eco park and grocery shopping. Have been to house twice.

home complies with pictures and is well equipped.

Unfortunately communication with owners is difficult, they do not know what has been already paid or not and we had to fight to recover the deposit.

Attention to the electric consumption, the bill is high and does not match the records that we did.

We found dirty bed mattress protector.

La maison est conforme aux photos et elle est bien équipée.

Malheureusement la communication avec les propriétaires est difficile, ils ne savent pas ce qui a été déjà payé ou pas et il a fallu se battre pour récupérer la caution.

Attention à la consommation électrique, la facture est élevée et ne correspond pas aux relevés que nous avons fait.

Nous avons trouvé les alaises de lit sales.

Beautiful home in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is everything the pictures show and more. It's beautifully decorated, has a great pool & spa and within a reasonable driving distance to the beaches. We enjoyed having our morning coffee on the dock and feeding the turtles a couple times a day. This home has everything you need, you just have to show up. It's close to a nice Publix grocery store and a nearby cinema. We would love to rent this again if we get back to Cape Coral. Thanks for allowing us to rent your beautiful home, Sylvie!

What a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our children (6 persons). This house is beautful, clean, comfortable. Has everything you need for a fine stay. The great pool with chairs, terrace, veranda, kitchen. The Publix en Walmart are only 5 minutes away by car.

We went to the Everglades to do an airboat tour. And we visited Miami, 2 and half hour drive, to see a NBA games from the Miami Heat. Also did a boattour in Miami.

And of course some shopping in the malls that are wihtin half an hour drive.

Our 35-th wedding anniversary was great in this beautiful palace.

Thanks for a wonderful vacation.

Convenient SE location very close to shops and restaurants yet tucked away in low traffic neighborhood adjacent to ecological park great for walking, biking, kayaking and observing wildlife (manatees, alligators)

It’s quiet and peaceful.

Other Activities: rent a boat and watch dolphins playing, observe manatees and alligators
