About Philip

My name is Philip, I am 39 years old and I work full-time as a project manager for a major Swiss bank in Zurich, Switzerland. I am an avid fisherman and diver and l love fishing, boating, diving and being on the water or in the water (sea, pool, hot tub). My local property managers Mary Jane and Kevin live 5min from the rental home and will take perfect care of you.

Philip purchased this villa in 1999

Why Philip chose Cape Coral

When I bought the house in 2009, it was the middle of the housing-market-crisis and really a lot of houses were on the market. I looked at over 10 houses in the same category. I chose this one because it is very beautiful & spacious, with a big pool with lots of sun morning till evening and because its location is quite close to the exit of the canal system, which is important for me as an avid fisherman who is on the water every day. And I love the two coconut palms next to the entrance.

A word of advice for your safety as a renter: There have recently been some craigslist rental scams in Cape Coral/Fort Myers. For your safety you can:

- rent via verified and safe portals like homeaway or VRBO

- focus on owners that are member longer than a year and have good ratings

- verify ownership: check the lee county tax collector's page (property tax record)

- pay only to accounts registered in the name of the verified owner

- ask the owner for a proof of ID (e.g. passport, ID, etc.)

- ask for a recent utility bill (water or electricity)

What makes this villa unique

I love Cape Coral and this house because for me it is the perfect combination of sun, fun and adventure on the water (fishing, boating, beaches) and a luxurious home with all comfort (pool, hot tub, big TVs, Internet, nice kitchen, AC, nearby shopping and restaurants, etc.). The optional fast and spacious 21' 150HP Hurricane boat also adds a lot to a unique vacation experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Philip

We are packing up to leave tomorrow. Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your home! LOVE this location. This is our 3rd house in Cape Coral and our favorite.

Boat was great, caught some fish, and had a great time. Terry very impressed with the motor. Quiet and great on gas.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. Not sure of our plans for next year, but if we do decide to return to Cape Coral, we will definitely contact you. (I know we must do this soon, as you could be booked up at any time.)

Best Regards

Terry & Judy

Amazing place! Incredible space!

  • 5 of 5

Owner, property manager, boat manager were as friendly and accommodating as could be. Boat was a tremendous addition, and well worth the minimal additional cost. House and pool were perfect; comfortable, and easy going space. Never wanted for anything. Local restaurants were amazing! I would rent here again in a heartbeat!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation ever is an understatement. Starting with the booking process all the way to checking out, every detail was spot on! The home is very clean, updated, well equipped, and provided for our every need. There are even fishing poles and a cooler for use! My children are ages 12 & 15 and they really enjoyed themselves and stay entertained the entire trip, which is always a plus! I highly recommend this home and area as a vacation destination and cannot say enough good things about it!

Simply amazing vacations! House & boat are great!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have rented this house and boat for 2 weeks in May 2015 and it was simply amazing. The house is very spacious, clean, well furnished, nicely decorated and in a great location. The pool and jacuzzi are also wonderful and sunny and we've spent many hours in it.

But the most we've liked the boat! We went fishing, island-hopping, visited the beaches and waterfront restaurant. Everything worked just great and we received detailed instructions and helpful tips at check-in.

Wonderful vacations - we'll be back next year!

Great venue for carefree vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house will leave nothing but the pleasant memories of our vacation. It is well equipped, spacious and conveniently located. The management team was always available, professional and courteous in their interactions. The boat option is a must for anyone willing to enjoy everything the Florida has to offer from the water side as well.
