Best place in 5 years of VRBO

  • 5 of 5

This was the best house we have stayed in, during our past five years of VRBO rentals. It was pristine clean. The pool was clean and refreshing. Everything worked as it should. Minor issues were taken care of promptly by the Eckhoff family (Thanks for your prompt response Barbara and Volker). The kitchen was well equipped and the view was very entertaining at times with the passing of boats and fish activity (jumping all the time!).

Great Property in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 4 adults and 2 teenagers who had a fantastic vacation in this perfectly located villa. Being on the canal location made it idyllic. Sitting each morning drinking coffee watching the fish jump and the lizards amble by meant we welcomed 2017 all chilled out.

The house itself was well furnished, spacious and very presentable.

A small negative was being charged for electricity which came as a surprise. We had not been told this was to be paid separately. We have rented a number of properties throughout Florida and this is the first time we have been charged anything extra.

Thank you Barbara. We all enjoyed our vacation.

Much needed family vacation was better than dreamed!

  • 5 of 5

Using VRBO was an excellent experience as it led us to this amazing property, in a very nice, well-maintained area of Cape Coral. I know we planned our trip during the hottest season, thus we never experienced traffic or crowds, the whole trip at this property was perfect.

Our first impression was the welcome we received upon entering the home. We had all the information we needed to proceed with our vacation, and knew we'd be meeting with Barbara in the morning to confirm all. The home is a showplace - stylish, open floor plan, modern décor, yet very warm and inviting. We felt at home immediately. Of course, having a private pool just steps away from us was the best part.

Everything about the home, pool, garage - everything was neat, clean, well-maintained (there was a blind in the master suite that wouldn't retract) and every detail was considered and provided. I over-packed thinking they might not have some things in the pantry or kitchen/baths, but I was so wrong. The only thing we had to restock was toilet paper and sandwich baggies.

We loved having personal recommendations for sight-seeing, maps and access to free wifi, laundry, garage. My teenage/college age daughters loved having their own rooms and they thought having beach/pool toys was just the best thing.

We loved being on the water from our enclosed, screened in pool set. Not having to worry about bugs, little lizards, or anything but enjoying the pool 24/7 made the vacation unforgettable.

The master bedroom was so comfortable - just can't say enough about the whole experience.

Our family over the years has vacationed in a lot of different ways, in a lot of different places - and this vacation really met all our needs and expectations. The level of luxury for the value of the rental was unbelievable - granted it was 100 degrees and 200% humidity - but, who cares with AC and a pool!? Every detail was thought of, and we will use this management company and this rental owner again on our next visit to southwest Florida. We did love the area, and will hope to return and enjoy another area and property.

Barbara Eckhoff is a very helpful and knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. She not only showed us the layout of the home and amenities, but helped us navigate the area easily with recommendations. We always heard back from Volker immediately whenever we had a question during our contracted time and can not recommend this property or owner enough.

We want to come back!

Fantastic Fourth of July Family Week

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful property met all of our expectations and more. The home was exactly as shown, with lots of nice personal touches to make our home away a really wonderful experience. The pool was the jewel in the crown, and the value for the cost is amazing. From the moment we stepped into the house, we were blown away by the welcoming atmosphere and chic décor. Each daughter got their own room on the opposite side of the house from the Master Suite. Every detail was thought of and we packed way too much stuff fearing we would not have the right kitchen, bath or pool item- we were so wrong! The furnishings were well kept and modern-chic, the house was clean and updated, the appliances and accessories were easy to use and worked well. And, we just loved having a private swimming pool onsite. it was clean, very clean, and we enjoyed many moments as a family playing and laying around. Our girls wanted me to include that your providing all sorts of pool "toys" made their day as we didn't have anything with us! Especiallly the pool light - swimming after dark was their favorite. And, Cape Coral in July - you can swim all the time. Wow! It was a hot one, but the AC kept up with us beautifully. We loved the area, the hospitable guide book and references/recommendations. Barbara was simply wonderful and helped us map out our day. She was knowledgeable and yet very familiar. There are no negatives, just a couple suggestions: label the light switches or provide a "map" to them and/or try to fix the master bedroom's rolling shade. Worked well as a shade, but had to be manually retracted daily. No biggie, but might bug someone else. We donated TP, baggies and kitchen can bags as we use them a lot - but providing the pool toys, beach chairs and umbrella, use of the whole house - cable, internet, phone - we were able to simply enjoy ourselves. This vacation meant a lot to us as a family that just endured a year of turmoil and tragedy, so being able to relax, spend time together with no distractions, and have it all be affordable and so luxurious made it a true blessing! We will rent from the Eckhoffs and will return to the SWFL area again (probably not in July -ha!) We will recommend this property and any other managed by them to everyone who'll listen!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 6 (4 young children)! The layout and decor made for a very comfortable stay! The pool was definitely the highlight for our family and being on the canal was an added bonus! House is located in a quiet neighborhood with lots of amenities close. Also an easy drive to Sanibel and other beautiful beaches! We will most definitely be back!
