surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We have had a beautiful stay in the Happy flipper. The service provided was excellent and we were greated by a friendly home manager and a clean home when we arrived. We had a hard time taking the kids with us to go to the many different things the area has to offer because they didnt want to leave the pool, which is a good sign. The house had a very spacious layout and will definitely be a destination to return to!

Wonderful Holiday Escape

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely home over Christmas for a gathering of family from across the country. My husband and I along with our four adult 20-something daughters (plus two boyfriends!) enjoyed everything about this home. The owners were excellent to work with and very flexible in accommodating our requests. We were pleasantly surprised to be welcomed with a nice note and bottle of wine. The property manager was also amazing, She was thorough in showing us around the house and provided us with recommendations to help us enjoy the local scene. We really appreciated her responsiveness when we had questions.

The home is well appointed and very spacious. The pool and spa area were well used during our stay as we were fortunate to soak up the 80 degree weather (having left the northeast 15 degree cold front we were experiencing). During our stay we rented a boat from Mannis Boat Rentals, which we would recommend. We spent two days island hopping between Captiva and Sanibel and were able to enjoy some stops in Ft. Myers Beach which is a cute little town with shopping, restuarants, bars and beach. A few of the places we'd recommend locally are Ford's Garage, the tiki hut bar at Cape Coral Beach, List Distillery, Point Ybel Brewing Company, and Ichy Yummy (which offers a unique all-you-can eat, made-to-order Asian fusion menu).

We really loved our time at Happy Flipper and would recommend it for your next vacation. Thank you for opening up your hope and helping us to make lasting memories!

Nice enough house, pool heater quit after first day, and furnace didn’t work.

  • 1 of 5

My three children had to stare at a pool all day that they couldn’t swim in because the pool heater quit after the first day, no repair person was sent until 7 days later and our stay was almost over. We could of had a comparable house for half the price without a pool, so even a token sum for a refund would have been nice but the owners refused. They just lied to us and said it was to cold for the pool to warm up , but the pool repair man told us it wasn’t working. The beds are very uncomfortable, the fans don’t work, the lounge chairs were broken, no propane in bbq, and they charged us 250.00 US for electricity!!!’ I highly recommend finding a different lodging for your southwest Florida vacation!!!

Owner's Response: We’re very sorry that we couldn’t meet your expectations. Of course it is disappointing when going to Florida and experience really low temperatures, even freeze warnings were sent out. Unfortunately, during your stay we have experienced a historic temperature drop. During this period it was very difficult and expensive to keep a swimming pool at a comfortable temperature so that your children could swim; luckily they could play in the warm Jacuzzi. The costs charged to you was the electricity that was actually consumed minus the electricity allowance (which was almost half the amount that you mentioned in your review), entirely supported by an official print-out of the electricity supplier so completely transparent. Guests can decide for themselves to heat the pool. We do not calculate a standard daily rate in advance. You indicated that you wanted money back and otherwise would post a very terrible review. With this approach, you have posted a review that damaged our reputation and unfortunately not reflects reality. Sorry, we are always open to reason but not for a threat. We do our utmost best to serve our guests but there are limits. Regarding the Pool Heater: We placed a service call to the manufacturer to check the heater when we heard about the problem. We also asked our Pool Technician what the reason could be for the failure, she indicated Low Outside Temperatures, the same thing they experienced on most houses at that time. The manufacturer wasn’t able to response immediately because of the holidays but came out 1.5 days after you reported your concerns. When they checked the heater, they found no malfunctions.

Nice short getaway.

  • 4 of 5

Place was very nice. Wish there were a few more “supplies” available. It seems folks before us or cleaning folks used up all TP, Papertowels, garbage bags, etc. We purchased these items and left for next guests... hope they do the same. I know we are to buy these types of things, but there are usually some left... was surprised there was nothing, so for our 4 days, we supplied quite a bit for the next guests...

Beautiful home and exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better experience than staying in this beautiful home! When renting a home, you never really know if you will get everything that is promised when written in its description. I can assure anyone renting this home that you will get everything promised and then some! This home was an absolute perfect fit for myself and my family. The most amazing aspects of this home are its grand spaciousness! The pictures, although lovely, do not capture how incredibly large and well layed out the house is. You feel as if there are different wings of the house, with the two lovely living rooms, and also master bedroom and bath on the other side of the house. Waking up to the beautiful sunshine flooding into the front living room and kitchen area was such a delight each morning! When researching for the perfect house to rent, I was given by someone the most important tip to keep in mind. In winter in Florida, if you do not rent a home with a south-east facing pool, then you will not receive sun all day long in the pool area. That was a major deciding factor for me in choosing this home, as we wanted play in the sun as much as we could! Each and every day the sun from morning until late afternoon would flood over the pool area and front living room. Then end of days you get to see beautiful colors from the sunset over the canal. And there is nothing like wonderful homeowners to make the experience even nicer! Geert and Leontine could not have been nicer people to work with! They went above and beyond to answer any questions or help to accommodate our needs. You feel like you are renting a home from dear friends and not strangers, who want you to have the best experience possible during your stay! The house is perfectly maintained, well organized, and filled with everything you could possibly need. Lastly, the area is just perfect. A 4 minute drive away is a publix grocery store and target, amongst many others. We also would go out daily for adventures in both Fort Myers and Sanibel Island, then home to our quiet lovely neighborhood. I will certainly be returning to this home again with my family. Amongst all the houses on the internet to rent, this one is a hidden gem! You will leave your vacation feeling, as I did, so lucky to have found this magical home away from home!!

Dear Geert,

We have indeed had a lovely time with our children in your villa. It is a very beautiful villa with stunning views of the water, a beautiful pool and a nice hot tub.



We also made some wonderful trips by boat.



Special thanks to your management they were also very friendly and helpful with some great tips.



Sincerely, fam. Rijksen from the Netherlands

Cape Coral's tropical waterfront wonderland, also known as the Venice of America, glimmers with 400 miles (approx. 650 km) of fresh and salt water canals and is the best place to relax, to do sports or to learn about 'The Real Florida'.

Cape Coral, cradled between Caloosahatchee River - belonging of the Intracoastal Waterway - and the Gulf of Mexico is sheltered by a string of Florida’s barrier islands and well known as a boater's and golfer's paradise.

You will find relaxation and unique attractions for your perfect vacation in your tropical back yard: endless beaches and untouched nature. Unique islands, like the “Ten Thousand Islands“ - most of them uninhabited - as well as Sanibel and Captiva Island with excellent shelling beaches, stretch along the Gulf Coast directly in front of Cape Coral.

This area is home to dolphins, endangered or threatened species as there are manatees, gopher tortoises, burrowing owls, pelicans and a lot of other water birds.
