We live in northeastern Wisconsin and love to be outdoors in the beautiful summer months. It has been our dream to own a vacation home someplace warm where we can escape some of the cold winter months.
Gary & Deb Nadolny purchased this house in 2012
We traveled to Cape Coral several years ago to visit family in South Florida. We liked the area so much that we returned the next year and decided to purchase a vacation home of our own. Cape Coral is the ideal location close to the warm waters of the Gulf, a short drive to Fort Myers and world famous Sanibel Island and only a 2-1/2 hour drive to Walt Disney World in Orlando.
We wanted someplace quiet and relaxing yet close to golfing, fishing, boating, beaches, shopping and dining. We found the perfect home on a canal in a quiet, safe neighborhood and completely furnished and redecorated Villa Papaya in 2012. We have Gopher Tortoises and protected Florida Burrowing Owls nesting next door.
Villa Papaya was a great place for all members of my family. My wife, children and I all enjoyed the home away from home. The villa is situated in a nice and quiet neighborhood. The rooms, kitchen and living area are spacious and fully furnished. The pool was great. Few minutes away, we could find all our shopping needs. The beaches were closer than we expected. We will definitely come next time we visit Florida. Thank you for letting us stay in your villa.
We found the home exactly the way it was described, clean and comfortable. We had plenty of room for the 7 of us. All beds were comfortable which is something we do not always find! Coming from the north we enjoyed the warm weather and eating meals in the pool area everyday. Deb and Gary were very easy to work with, quickly provided an answer to all my questions. They explained everything so there were no surprises in the end. I received our damage deposit back in about a week. It is a bit of a drive to places IF you are use to things right around the corner, which we are not. However, the reward will be peace and quite in a nice clean comfortable place and neighborhood upon your return. All had a wonderful time. Thank you Deb and Gary for sharing your home with us.
Only negative thing was house was not stocked with essentials. We flew in, got there late at night. Was very inconvenient the next day to hunt down a grocery store in a unfamiliar town and purchase, laundry soap, toilet paper, bath soap, dish soap, etc. If you are going to make people do the laundry before leaving you should at least provide supplies. As far as the other items we had to purchase, you need to advise people ahead of time before booking that they have to provide all the essentials supplies, and do all the laundry. Never stayed at a rental that did not provide supplies and made you do the laundry. Strange.
The stay was excellent, had everything we needed. Enjoyed the pool, and fishing. Quiet neighborhood, relaxing atmosphere.
What a beautiful house!! Spacious and comfortable and great for a family vacation. The pool was awesome, and we spotted many turtles in the water behind the house. Appreciated the pool toys! Centrally located between some great tourist spots- Fort Myers, Sanibel and Captiva, etc. Was also thrilled to discover that the neighborhood was a protected breeding ground for burrowing owls- I'm an owl fanatic and we saw so many- it was awesome!!! Would definitely stay again.
Villa Papaya was great for my family. The home was in a very quiet neighborhood, yet close to shopping amenities and plenty of things to do. We used the pool every day and thoroughly enjoyed the lanai. All of the beds were comfy and the master bed was great as was the huge shower! The home is beautifully decorated and had all of the comforts of home. We went to the Sunsplash water park for a day as its only about 10 mins. away and had a blast! We attempted to go fishing, but there were so many turtles in the water we didn't want to hook one. One day we went to the beach on Sanibel island and we also took an overnight trip to the Kennedy Space Center as it's not terribly far away. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your home!
