As working professionals and parents we treasure the time we have to share with our family and friends. Nothing is more relaxing and enjoyable to us than to visit our home in Cape Coral. Here we can escape the stress of work and the hustle and bustle of our sports schedules.
Kurt purchased this house in 2009
Visiting the area with friends we fell in love with the Southwest Florida area. It has so much to offer as a vacation destination. We have met so many new friends in Cape Coral and found connections to the area with old friends, business associates and acquaintances at home.
With our waterfront location, private pool and close proximity to Sanibel, Captiva, Ft. Myers and Cape Coral beaches we have opportunity for so much variety when we visit. The short drive to Tampa or Orlando add the chance for day trips to amusement and adventure parks. Discovery Cove was amazing last October and we always enjoy Busch Gardens and Seaworld. And who doesn't love Disney?
We enjoyed our week here in Florida and your home was beautiful as well as comfortable. Each year we come for spring break at this time and would consider renting from you again, depending on the size of our party. Thank you again.
The house was very clean and well-appointed. The kitchen was large and equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable, and there was plenty of room for our group of 3 couples. The lanai and pool/spa area are beautiful. The home was close to everything, easy access to grocery stores and restaurants. The only thing I would suggest is that detailed instructions on how to use the pool/spa remote be left for guests. Even after 5 days we had a hard time figuring it out, and we had an engineer and a computer expert with us. No doubt it was operator error...just a suggestion for future guests. I would recommend this house to anyone.
After many years visiting the east coast, we decided to give the West coast a try. Very different, more easy-going and laid back. We liked. The house we choose is fantastic. A dream home. Well situated to go to Sanibel-Captiva or Fort Myers and the southern areas like Naples (1 hr drive) and Marco Island. This house has everything, a former model home, it shows in all the details. It is at the end of a canal. As mentionned by another reviewer, the pool and spa heater is tricky to operate. Had to call Kurt a few times before understanding how to operate it. Maybe a manual of operation would help, but Kurt was very helpful in making sure it worked OK. The area was hit by a tornado in our 1st week, quite an experience. Kurt made sure we were OK. He even sent us a basket of fruits to thanks us for renting with him. I have never seen that from an owner. This is a cheap rental for the quality of the house!!!
Everyone young (grandkids) and old (mother-in-law) enjoyed our vacation time at the Chiquita house. It is in a fantastic location. The house was clean and well equipped. Hopefully we will be back in the future to rent it again.
The rental agreement is plain and simple, and Kurt is great at responding quickly to any questions. We hated to leave the house and Cape Coral.
A Florida vacation was a Christmas gift to our children and grandchildren, and this house helped make our vacation perfect (the weather helped too). It was roomy, the beds were very comfy, and the pool was lovely. We spent almost every day at the beach and all the beach gear in the garage came in very handy. Beach chairs, umbrellas, toys for the little ones and lots of beach towels. When it was time to leave the beach, we told the kids they could swim at home and there was no problem leaving. It's in a convenient location - easy to get just about anywhere. Would definitely stay here again.
We had a great time at Cape Coral. Kurt and Peggy's vacation home made it special for us. Their vacation home is beautiful, well appointed and not too far from any store that you would need. Our trip was a last minute decision and Kurt was very accomodating. He made the process easy and was great to work with. I would definitely consider spending our next vacation at Cape Coral at this home.
What a beautiful home with great amenities. The home was clean and well maintained. The furnishings were beautiful. Loved the pool that was screened in with ample seating around it. It had a great kitchen. It was really nice to have laundry facilities too. I enjoyed using the kayaks on the waterway off the home's dock area to the lake every morning. My kids enjoyed riding the bikes. Overall, very pleased with everything. The owner was very easy to work with and quick to respond to questions. I look forward to staying there again in the future!
