Brad & Donna Zeigler purchased this house in 2012

Why Brad & Donna Zeigler chose Cape Coral

After living in the same neighborood for most of our married life...our niece encouraged us to come to Cape Coral. After searching with our wonderful Real estate agent, Judy Sylvia...we fell in love with our 'little castle' thus the name 'Bella Palacia' After viewing about 50 homes....once we walked into this home all other homes were compared to this one...until finally we knew this was it. We loved the high ceilings...and the space....the grand opening to the outdoors...and just about was 'Barbie Doll PINK' inside and the very first thing we did was PAINT!

What makes this house unique

We love to sit in the chairs on the pool shelf...and have a cup of coffee and watch the sun rise....and then go to the dock and throw the fish jump and the turtles come to share in the feast as well as Pelicans...diving...and Ibis...coming to share....but watch out for the Sea Gulls' who try to swipe the bread! Such a beautiful basin view on a fresh water basin/canal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Posted from our welcome book....

Thank you for opening your house to us. We have enjoyed our stay here immensely and it has made our vacation that much more enjoyable. The first thing we did was jump in the pool and go paddle boating and we put the pool to good use everyday. The décor was wonderful and the kids could "live Here forever!" Thank you and we feel blessed to have lived here for the time that we have! Best Wishes

A wonderful, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The house was comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a beach vacation. It was relatively close to local beaches, but we spent a lot of time at the house too. With the pool, hot tub, dock and paddle boat there was plenty to do. Donna was wonderful to work with and her local agent was available if we needed anything. Overall, one of our best vacations yet!

Another Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this amazing home. We will be back many more times. The owners and real estate agents are great to work with. The home is a paradise dream. Every attention to detail has been offered by the owners to make sure your stay is relaxing and comfortable. The home is beautifully decorated with every amenity and the pool and lanai are great to hang out and relax. We made friends with the birds, fish, and turtles. It was fun to sit on the dock and observe the wildlife. The home is close to shopping restaurants and beaches. Donna and Brad are such nice people and staying in their home makes you feel like you are part of their family.

Next time I hope you can stay longer.... and travel to all the many beaches that SW Florida has to offer.....I know from reading the guest book that you went early in the morning to Sanibel Island and collected the most beautiful Sea Shells. Such a beautiful place... and so close. Blessings to you and yours! Brad & Donna
