About Gary & Deb Nadolny

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

Why Gary & Deb Nadolny chose Mariner

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Cape Coral. The house was lovely and very clean. The layout was great for our family and there was plenty of room for all 6 of us. We enjoyed the open air on the lanai.

It's a great location for heading to Matlacha or points north. If you are headed to Fort Myers Beach or points further south, you may want to look closer to the bridges to Fort Myers. I didn't and we spent a lot of time on the road.

I only have two real complaints about our stay. First- the water at the villa STUNK. I don't know if it's due to sulphur in the water, but it was very unpleasant. Second-when our deposit was refunded, I expected some amount to be deducted due to electric use, but I was completely blind sided that an additional $52 was deducted for credit card fees.

The owners were very responsive and the property manager was lovely.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Our apologies for the water issue. We wish you would have contacted us as we would have immediately sent our water company to check on it. As stated in our online Rental Agreement, all credit card charges will be deducted from the security deposit. It is also listed under "additional information". We are sorry you missed this information when booking our villa.

House and property was great.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time here. The pool was very nice. It was awesome that they furnished a pack n play, and a high chair, so that way we did not have to travel with ours. Love the canal out back, outdoor patio and pool, master suite, nice tv with direct tv, Wi-Fi, they had bikes, fishing poles, golf clubs, and kids toys. A nice home away from home.

Perfect Home for experiencing SW Florida

  • 5 of 5

House was absolutely beautiful, pictures do not do it justice. Appliances all in good working condition, furniture and beds in very nice condition. Pool and outside area an excellent place to relax and wind down. Location is in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to everything you need. Drive to Fort Myers beach, Sanibel and Captiva Islands 30-45 minutes.

Guest book had information on almost everything you need. The few questions we did have the owners were very quick to respond. We booked this on short notice, and the owners were very quick to respond to all my questions. From start to finish everything went smooth. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to visit the area.
