About The Owner

We have run an American/European import company for many years and have had the chance to travel a great deal.

Yet we love spending time right here with the sunny skies, beautiful pool and near the ocean and the world class beaches.

We are animal lovers and do what we can to make their lives better.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Cape Coral

Cape Coral is easy to reach by air or expressway - it has every outdoor activity we enjoy and we dont have to leave the USA to feel that we are in a tropical location

Key West and Orlando/Disney are actually available as day trips

Fish off the dock or bring your boat and cruise to the Gulf Islands from the back yard dock.

What makes this house unique

My favorite day is a round of golf on the championship layout nearby, a cool dip in the pool and a cold drink watching the sun go down over the pool and the canal. How can you beat that?

Yvonne loves sunning at the beach, picking up a few treasured shells on Sanibel and finding other treasures at the local outlet malls.

Who wouldn't love that?

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Jay and Yvonne!

Life here in Cape Coral is just one hardship after another...

The weather is only 83 degrees, the pool is only 85 degrees,

the beds are so comfortable, the kitchen too perfect...

Oh! The trials and tribulations we have to suffer. Simply -

we are in love with your beautiful home!

Ernie went out this morning to his favorite driving range to

try out his new golf clubs and to return the book on tape that we

borrowed for the trip down. We finished it last night while

watching the sun go down on the lanai over the pool and canal.

Just a few things I thought you might like to know:

1 - Your internet is very speedy. I dont know if this is normal

for you, but compared to ours at home it is lightning fast.

2 - Pool heater and solar working in concert are marvelous

and pool is wonderful.

3 - Yvonne...the pots and pans are amazing. They heat up very

fast and we really have to keep an eye on them because they are

so conductive. We are going to buy the same for our home as

soon as we get back.

4 - The baby palms are doing very well and we are watering every

day as promised - they are swaying in the breeze.

Well I've taken up so much of your time but we just wanted you to

know that we are so very happy to be here in your home. The two

of us slept late past 7 AM this morning. This is unheard of for us at home. It must be the fresh air and this incredibly comfortable bed!!!

We so hope to meet you some day when we return to "The Palace"

"Absolutely Fabulous"

  • 5 of 5

This house is just like the photos, gorgeous! We stayed here just before Christmas for a week. There is everything you could possibly need and more available. We were up and out early each day and enjoyed returning in the afternoons to relax in the pool (which the sun is on in the afternoons/Evenings) Perfect!! We ate (some) breakfasts and dinners outside in the lovely lanai. There are shops close by, Publix etc which is handy. The Pink Palace is pretty central to lots of great places to visit, Sanibel Island, Fort Meyers beach, Bonita Springs, Naples, these are the places we visited. Some recommends ~ Doc's Beach House Restaurant in Bonita Springs, sit outside with a fabulous view of the gorgeous beach, we had breakfast here. Boathouse Tiki bar and grill in Cape Coral again breakfast with a view!! Take a day trip to Key West, get the Key West express from Fort Meyers, great fun!

Jay and Jvonne the owners are so lovely and helpful. You will absolutely love staying here, don't look anywhere else, you've found it!!!!

Wonderful Vacation At Your Home-

  • 5 of 5

Jay and Yvonne have a wonderful Cape Coral Home. We truly enjoyed our relaxing stay with little to do other than float in the pool and fish on the dock. The home is close and convenient to everything. Very nice stay!

Very Comfortable. Like being at home back in Chicago. Only difference is a sunny blue sky, 75 degrees and palm trees.

Loved our stay at the Pink Palace@@

  • 5 of 5

We just got back home from our January stay at Jay & Yvonne's beautiful Pink Palace and miss it already. Great place to stay, centrally located in Cape Coral and handy to all the major sites. Minutes away from Sanibel & Captiva Islands and close to all major restaurants. Close to the Everglades and Miami and only 3 hours from Orlando.

Jay & Yvonne really keep their place in great shape and we loved spending time in the heated pool. Great sunsets since the back faces due west from the pool. You will not find better people to rent from than Jay & Yvonne and they really wanted to make our stay at the Pink Palace enjoyable and they did that for sure. We have already reserved January 2016 and hope this will be a yearly trip for us.

Love the Pink Palace!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Pink Palace for the month of November 2014. This was our first Florida rental, so we were a little nervous, but Jay & Yvonne were so nice, and everything went smoothly. The home was just as beautiful as the photos, however we were still in awe when we walked in the front door! We fell in love with the home immediately! Tastefully decorated, comfy furniture, and well equipped with dishes, appliances, linens etc. We enjoyed the pool every day, fished from the dock, and spent a day at Sanibel Island. We golfed a few times, and did lots of shopping. There are lots of great restaurants within a 15 minute drive (watch the paper for coupons & specials). Of course, we also enjoyed barbecuing our own dinners at the house. Jay & Yvonne are great hosts, very accommodating! Thanks for a wonderful month!

Another Wonderful Month in The Pink Palace

  • 5 of 5

Our third month-long stay at The Pink Palace proved to be even more enjoyable than the previous two. The weather was delightful and the amenities offered by the house enhanced our experience of the Cape Coral area. The layout is ideal for our purposes, and the pool is always a major factor. We found more interesting things to do and restaurants we can recommend. Owners Jay and Yvonne were great to work with, as usual. We are already looking forward to returning to our "home away from home" in 2015!
