2nd stay, fully relaxed

  • 5 of 5

After our stay in 2013, we decided to rent this wonderful home again for our vacation in July 2016. There was a feeling like coming home. My husband, our teenaged childen, a cousin of my husband and I have really enjoyed our stay. The villa is situated in the SW of Cape Coral, just a few minutes away from the next supermarket. It was very clean and well maintained. There were enough dishes and we had some nice BBQ's. We did some trips to the beaches of Sanibel Island & Captiva and enjoyed shopping at Sanibel Outlets as well as a trip to Everglades City. Mr. Bensfield was very helpful prior and during our stay. The deposit was paid back promptly after our departure.

Very nice property!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks John for accommodating our last minute reservation! The house had a great open floor plan, pool and hot tub were lovely, it was affordable for us, near to Sanibel and fishing for my husband and son and not too far from Barefoot Beach and the other beautiful shelling beaches in the area. Definitely exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend!

Fun and Relaxation in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent one week in this beautiful home. The house was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our time at the house and at the beach. The neighborhood was peaceful and very quite. We were also able to befriend the neighbors while we were there. Our last night we were even able to see a Manatee in the canal. There are plenty of day trip destinations from this location, but it was also great to spend the day hanging out by the pool. I highly recommend this location for anyone that wants to have a 5 star vacation! We'll be back!

Perfect for a family with teenagers

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 3 teenaged children in April 2016. We couldn't have been more impressed. This house is beautiful and so CLEAN! There was plenty of space for all our stuff, and then some. I was impressed with the stock of spices in the pantry, and everything I needed to cook our seafood dinners was there! The location is great - we spent time at Sanibel and Captiva, then headed north one day to Siesta Key, and South one day to the everglades. We also enjoyed the town of Cape Coral and the adorable owls! It was so nice to come "home" at the end of the day and cool off in the pool and then relax in the hot tub. This house gave us the perfect space to hang out with our teenagers and have some much-needed together time. We are recommending this place to our retired parents and will definitely be back ourselves.
