Cape Coral Villa Rental Photos and Description

You have found your ideal domicile - we would be happy to make you an offer!

The Villa Joya is located on a particularly wide canal intersection in one of the most beautiful streets in the southwest, not far from Cape Harbour and Rumrunners, in the middle of well-kept houses and blooming gardens in a comfortable neighbourhood. Since the property faces the south, you can enjoy the sun whenever you want. Our pool was equipped with new, energy-saving electric heating and is treated with SALT instead of chlorine. The water is extremely soft through this and wonderful for the skin. Our covered lounge area in the patio has two day beds, in addition to a dining space, for a drink or a glass of wine after eating. Furthermore, there are four comfortable sun loungers by the pool.

Our house (built in 2003) was completely renovated inside and out in 2012. The air conditioning was renewed, the terrace expanded and a new cage was installed. With the internal decoration, we made sure that everything is light and friendly. We selected modern furniture and placed the greatest value on comfort. Instead of a second indoor dining space (formal dining), we created a spacious lounge corner with two cosy loungers for reading, chilling and listening to music. The style of our house is very fresh and clear, there are no carpets, but rather simply tiles. Thus, the house is not only particularly hygienic and easy to take care of, but rather it is also suitable for those suffering from allergies. The atmosphere is that of a luxury beach house in which summer lives year-round...

EVERYTHING we bought was new, from the master bedroom to the clothes hangers, everything is NEW!!!

Our house is a NON-SMOKING HOUSE!

Our four meter by four meter boat dock offers enough space for a sundowner on the water and of course a boat!

Furthermore, there is a male, female and children's bicycle available.

Particularly on holiday, a good sleep is important and that is why we purchased the highest quality mattresses in all three bedrooms. We and our previous guests were thrilled. (See also the reviews) pillows and mattresses are protected through hygienic covers, which are cleaned after every tenant change.

Towels and beach towels are available in an adequate number - everything is colour coordinated to the many comfortable loungers and the daybeds with their soft pillows. Furthermore, the large outdoor dining table is here with six chairs made of eucalyptus wood, which are also equipped with pillows. Our Weber gas grill will surely make it difficult to decide if you want to 'go out or grill at home'. Normally we decide for the latter, because the steaks in America are simply in a class of their own. Furthermore, there is nothing better than swimming a few rounds in the pool after a comfortable meal and before going to sleep...

And everything you need is in the kitchen if you like to cook during your holiday! Food in the USA is not only inexpensive, but rather also of a wonderful quality. We would be happy to tell you our favourite for fresh fish and shellfish. However, you will never want fish in Germany again after this experience.

Since we like to go on holiday in our house or in southwest Florida, we can give you lots of tips and ideas. We would be happy to share our excitement with you for the country, people and animals. Whenever you have questions, regardless of if before or during your holiday: You can contact us at any time. Furthermore, our German-speaking house management is always there for you.

Our house is located in the popular zip code zone 33914, thus, in southwest from Cape Coral. There are particularly beautiful houses here and this district is particularly noble. Our neighbourhood is really nice and helpful.

Our German-speaking house management will welcome you on arrival and show you everything in the house. And during your stay, he will be available to answer all of your questions and requests.

About Petra Albrecht

We are a couple without children and live in Düsseldorf. And when we were in Florida and Cape Coral for the first time in December of 2011, we fell in love with the country, people and climate so quickly that we thought about buying our own house in CC. First it was just a (rather crazy) dream and we did not think that it would actually be a reality. After a few sleepless nights and a lot of calculating, we finally did it. And we are very happy about this...

Petra Albrecht purchased this villa in 2012

Why Petra Albrecht chose Cape Coral

We looked at a lot of houses and were close to giving it all up. Because either the house did not have a south-facing terrace or the canal was too small or it was not in the right location, etc.! But once our real estate agent Nadja, now a good friend, opened the door to this house, we looked at each other and said: this is it!!!! Our guests also regularly tell us that the house somehow 'welcomes' you immediately. And at latest when we saw the canal intersection and the jumping fish, it convinced us. The happiness about this, so the Joy, gave our house its future name on the same day with a glass of wine. Villa JOYA.

What makes this villa unique

As you surely have already seen, the selection in Cape Coral is so big that it is nearly overwhelming And this is what it was like for us when we looked to buy a house. But upon looking closer, as already described, the location, orientation and the view of a lot of water made it easier to make a decision.

We designed the furnishing and colours as we often would have liked to have in holiday homes: reduced to what is most important, but still very homey and impressive. With its own style and a lot of Florida, but still without kitsch and heavy furniture. We would like to give our guests the feeling that they can spread out their personal belongings and not have to push a lot of stuff aside first. You can also feel at home from the first moment on.

And since we are also there on a regular basis, we always make sure that everything looks nice and well taken care of. Tiled floors everywhere and altogether easy to maintain furnishing make it easy for our cleaning lady.

Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Villa Joya. There were four of us and it was very comfortable and well equipped. It is very spacious, particularly the pool and ourside living area and such a lovely outlook that we hardly sat inside at all. Lovely to watch the sunset and enjoy a barbecue and a glass of wine by the pool. The owners were always helpful in providing comprehensive information about the villa and always very prompt in responding to emails. We would love to return.

If I created my own vacation place it would be exactly like this: spacious, full of light, tons of towels...absolutely everything you can wish for. We loved the cozy outdoor area and the saltwater pool! We will definitely be back.

Jetzt aber...

  • 5 of 5

Jetzt aber müssen wir unbedingt eine Bewertung abgeben. Nachdem wir bereits 2014 Gast in der Villa Joya sein durften, müssen wir nun, nach unserem jüngsten Aufenthalt vor wenigen Tagen, einmal ein dickes Lob loswerden. Nicht nur, dass wir das schön gelegene Haus in einem top gepflegten Zustand vorfanden. Auch der persönliche Kontakt mit Frau Albrecht und Herrn Sundermann gestaltete sich äußerst angenehm und unkompliziert. Neben den bereits in der Beschreibung angegebenen Ausstattungsmerkmalen sollen die äußerst bequemen Matratzen nicht unerwähnt bleiben. Wir haben uns während beider Aufenthalte in der Villa Joya sehr wohl gefühlt. Gerne empfehlen wir sie weiter.

Owner's Response: Ganz herzlichen Dank!!! Es freut uns ganz besonders, wenn Gäste, die uns wiederholt besucht haben, wieder vollkommen zufrieden sind. Daran arbeiten wir unermüdlich und das ist unser größtes Anliegen. Alles soll immer und jederzeit tiptop gepflegt und bestens vorbereitet sein. Und wenn das gelingt, ist das unser größtes Lob!

Ja, wir haben es wieder gebucht!

Wir sind Wiederholungstäter in der Villa Joya und es war wieder wunderschön.

März 2014 und jetzt Mai 2015.

Die Lage, Ausstattung, die liebevolle Einrichtung und besonders der nette und unkomplizierte Kontakt zu den Besitzern ist toll.

Besonders der persönliche Kontakt zu den Eigentümern ist viel schöner, als über eine Vermittlungsagentur zu buchen.

Die schöne Lage ist in CC wirklich top, alles was man so braucht in der Umgebung und schnell ist man über die untere CC Bridge in Fort Myers und an allen Stränden in der Umgebung.

14 Tage lang haben wir uns wieder Zuhause gefühlt und das ist uns in einem Floridaurlaub immer sehr wichtig.

Das Haus ist wirklich mit allem ausgestattet was man so braucht.

Wenn es mal wieder ein Florida Urlaub sein wird (was bei uns sehr wahrscheinlich ist), ist die Villa Joya bestimmt immer wieder in der engeren Wahl (wenn verfügbar) ;o).

Der reibungslose angenehme Empfang und Checkout durch das Hausverwalterehepaar, war auch wieder Top!

Wer einen schönen Urlaub in einem schönem Domizil in Cape Coral sucht, wird hier bestimmt nichts falsch machen. Daumen hoch für die Villa Joya :0)

LG aus Hamburg

Owner's Response: Große Freude bei uns, daß es Ihnen auch als "Wiederholungstäter" so gut gefallen hat. Das ist unser Ziel und auch das unseres netten Verwalterehepaares! Wir bleiben am Ball, wie man so schön sagt, damit unsere Qualität immer wieder überzeugt. Auch bei unserem nächsten Aufenthalt in unserem Haus, der sehr bald bevorsteht;-)), werden wir dafür sorgen, daß alles so schön bleibt. Und wenn Sie dann irgendwann (hoffentlich) wieder kommen, gibts vielleicht wieder so einiges Neues! Herzlichen Dank und gern bis bald!!

Traumhaft schöner Urlaub un Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben alles so vorgefunden wie

beschrieben und wie wir es uns erhofft haben. Die Lage des Hauses ist wirklich traumhaft an der Kanalkreuzung mit wunderbaren Sonnenuntergängen - bestens zu genießen bei einem Glas Wein von der Terrasse aus.Es hat im und um das Haus herum an nichts gefehlt - perfekt auch der Empfang mit freundlichem Empfangsschreiben. erlebt. Betreuung durch Fam. Probst nett und freundlich. Wir haben uns rundherum wohl gefühlt und können Sie nur weiterempfehlen und zu diesem wunderschönen Haus beglückwünschen.

Sehr netter Schriftverkehr mit dem Vermieter und reibungslose Abwicklung des Mietvorgangs - besonders die schnelle Abrechnung und Rückzahlung der Mietkaution. Gerne kommen wir wieder !

Owner's Response: Ganz herzlichen Dank! Wir freuen uns jedesmal wieder, wenn unser Haus und wie wir es eingerichtet haben, unseren Gästen gefällt. Wir zählen schon die Tage, bis wir selber wieder vor Ort sind, um unsere neusten Ideen umzusetzen, damit die Villa Joya immer ein schöner und topgepflegter Wohlfühlort bleibt.... Bis zum nächsten mal!!

Ein super schöner erholsamer Urlaub in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

Wir können uns den bisher abgegebenen Bewertungen voll und ganz anschließen. Es war ein super schöner entspannter Urlaub, der viel zu schnell vorbei ging. In der Villa blieben keine Wünsche offen, in der Küche war alles vorhanden, was man braucht sowie für Pool und Strand. Es wurde nie langweilig; Kanu, Fahrrad und Angel, alles da. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten waren schnell zu erreichen. Selbst das Einkaufen ist in Amerika sehr erholsam (die Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft des Personals ist hervorragend = kein Vergleich zu Deutschland). Vom Buchungsbeginn bis zur Rückzahlung der Kaution - es lief alles 1a mit den Vermietern. Vielen Dank für den schönen Urlaub; wir kommen ganz bestimmt wieder! Wir wünschen eine geruhsame Adventszeit, ein schönes Weihnachtsfest und alles Gute für 2015.

Car: recommended

Our Villa Joya with a wonderful view of the canal intersection is located in the beautiful southwest of Cape Coral. Cape Coral, the Venice of America, is crossed with canals with a total length of 600 kilometres in which fish and turtles play, water birds of all types and even a few manatees come by! From Cape Coral, you can reach all of the tourist highlights of the southwest. There is no better home base for a great Florida holiday. Because in CC it is quiet and above all safe. Cape Coral has the lowest crime rate in comparable cities in all of the USA.

The possibilities to do something are infinite. Through its location, Cape Coral is the perfect starting base for discovering the southwest of Florida. From the Keys to Sarasota, from Miami to Orlando and do not forget the Everglades and the dream islands of Sanibel and Captiva - everything can be reached easily from here. The climate provides for fantastic vegetation and if you love nature, you will love it here.

The most beautiful beaches of the USA are found in southwest Florida. And - nowhere else will find so many beautiful seashells. In particularly on the islands, above all on Sanibel. There is even a seashell museum!

But Cape Coral is also a paradise for golfers. From here you can reach many beautiful golf courses - so many that even several holidays would not be enough to play all of them. And you can admire the animals on the golf course as well. Alligators live in the ponds on the courses and are not very interested in the golfers. But it is different the other way around...

We purchased a Nespresso machine for those who love espresso. Unfortunately, the capsules are (still) not very easy to find in the USA. We recommend bringing some from Germany. It is really worth it. We have a 'real' espresso machine at home and must say that the Nespresso makes wonderful espresso. Of course, however, there is also a very classic coffee machine for filter coffee. You will find everything you need in the kitchen. If something should be missing, just tell us. We will make sure that you get what you need. And finally, we have one request: The Villa Joya is a NON SMOKING HOUSE! We politely ask you to obey!
