Just wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We often rent homes all over the country and this house was outstanding. The location and view were tropical. The house was pristine and very tastefully decorated. It was comfortable, the pool was perfect and the layout of the house was well designed. Thank you for the opportunity to share your home

Upon entering the door we felt the house was amazing in all aspects.

There was easily enough space for 6 adults & 2 children and the view overlooking the canal was mesmerising .

Good access to Ft Myers beach and a bit further afield if you wanted to.

The pool was lovely and regularly used.

The only negative comment for us being British was no kettle but that isn't the first time we have said that in the states

About Jürgen & Nicole Straub

We are a family of four, from the beautiful area of Vorderpfalz, in Germany. From our home country we were spoiled by the soft climate and high quality of life, so we fell in love with Cape Coral during a trip to Florida. ¡Being here is simply beautiful!

When we selected a name for our villa, we chose “Villa Palatina” because “Palatina”is the Latin name for the German region of Pfalz.

Thus emerging a small personal reference.

¡We are hoping to welcome you soon to our Villa Palatina!

The Straub family

Jürgen & Nicole Straub purchased this villa in 2015

Why Jürgen & Nicole Straub chose Cape Coral

The location of the house is perfect! It is located southeast of Cape Coral directly on the side of an ample salt-water canal, surrounded by a peaceful area, and a charming neighbourhood. Villa Palatina is located in the middle of all the commodities of southeast Florida, including all the beaches, shops, restaurants and much more. You can also reach Fort Myers in a couple of minutes. ¡Only 15 minutes away, through the beautiful Rubicon Canal, you will reach the Gulf of Mexico!

Furthermore, Villa Palatina was completely renovated in 2014 with a special new roof that can stand hurricane winds of up to 180 mph (compared to the standard 130 mph), CGI hurricane windows and doors, a new screen with extra space, the pool and terrace floors are new, a new irrigation system, dock with Captains Walk, Tiki ranch and boat elevator. New carpeting and tiles. The main beedroom has an ample shower, a hydromassage tub, kitchen with granite tables and bar, new electronic appliences.

What makes this villa unique

As mentioned before, the location of “Villa Palatina” is perfect, the opportunity to rent a boat and explore Cape Coral and its surroundings from the water, or to go to the sea, that carecterizes our house.
