About John Meyer

Carole and John would like to welcome you to their home in the beautiful Pelican neighborhood of Cape Coral. John has many fond memories of growing up by the ocean, and loves saltwater fishing. Now relocated to the upper Midwest, the winters can be long and hard. Living near the Great Lakes is just not the same as the sights, smells and sounds of the sea. We have vacationed throughout Florida with our family through the years, but Florida's west coast has a special attraction. We bought this home hoping to instill the same fond memories of life near the ocean in our children.

John Meyer purchased this villa in 2010

Why John Meyer chose Cape Coral

The west coast of Florida has lots to offer. Cape Coral has the perfect balance of a modern city with new housing, Gulf access, and affordable living. The SW Cape is known for its safe and peaceful neighborhoods, with easy Gulf access and many amenities nearby. Our particular location is the best. Tucked away, our 4 block neighborhood is surrounded on all sides by saltwater canals just like a moat. This adds to the feeling of safety and security as well as limited to local traffic only. Yet we are located less than 1 mile from downtown Cape Coral with all its shops and restaurants. It just couldn't be any more convenient!

What makes this villa unique

You will enjoy picking fresh oranges and grapefruits for breakfast from the tree in our backyard. Or perhaps you will enjoy fishing or crabbing from the dock toward evening. Because the neighborhood is surrounded by canals on all sides with only one road in and out, there is a feeling of safety and security when the children go for a walk or ride their bikes in the neighborhood. Are you nature lovers like us? If so, look closely and you just might see a passing manatee, dolphin or turtle in the canal. There are also burrowing owls not far away and ibis, herons and egrets frequent the property. Enjoy the lush tropical foliage that thrives in this paradise oasis.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This had to be one of the nicest vacations we have ever taken. The house was absolutely gorgeous and very homey. It was much bigger than expected. There are sliding glass doors in several of the rooms, including the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a high bed, comfortable mattress, and huge bathroom with one of the biggest showers I have ever seen!. The home is situated on a canal and the kids had a blast catching jellyfish in the net. The pool was great to be able to cool off after a long day of tanning. It was just like it was described and more. My family loved it, and we would definitely recommend it to our friends!

First of all, the house was very nice in a great neighborhood. It was well furnished and provided everything we needed during our stay. When we arrived after a 14 hour drive we found the house had not been cleaned from the prior tenant. The master bed was left just as it was when they crawled out of it. Floors were dirty and dirty towels, etc. piled on top of the washer. I sent several emails to the owner John, with no response. I then sent a text to John and to Ingrid, the property management agent. I finally received a response from John, surprised that the cleaning had not been done. Ingrid never did respond. A cleaning crew was never sent to the house. After the 14 hour drive, I cleaned the house and did all the laundry. John indicated that I would be reimbursed for the cleaning fee that I paid up front. Now, after several attempts at contacting John, we have still not received our deposit refund or the cleaning fee as was promised. I even cleaned the house again before our departure. This experience, coupled with another from a different owner concerning the return of the deposit fee, has convinced me to NEVER AGAIN rent from one of these sites. In the future, I will contact a Property Management firm in the town I wish to rent in and make the arrangements directly through them. Please reconsider renting this property.

Aquamarine Shores

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed the last week of July and enjoyed all the emenities this home had to offer. The grandchildren loved the pool and everyone was well pleased with comfort and décor of the home. There are also very nice beach chairs for use as well as fishing poles and since it did rain most of the time we were there, the home was a great refuge. The only problem we ran into was that there was no air mattress . Walmart is very close so just took a matter of minutes to purchase one, problem solved, I gave the Villa 5 stars because it certainly deserves it. Everything we hoped for! Thank-you for sharing your home.

Beware, this is a beautiful home as I stated in my previous review. However, we have yet to receive our deposit back. John told us we left the house a mess and he had to wait on extra cleaning bills, (not in the contract) We paid for cleaning and most certainly did not leave the house a mess.

The day before we left, I swept the floors and back patio but not great outside I'll admit, laundry, cleaned up dishes, wiped down bathroom sinks, put the pool toys away, cleaned up the fridge but left the rum for the cleaning lady, (who knows, I didn't want to toss it) put everything back in it's place! My hubby took the garbage out to the lawn, and swept up the garage! I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

I had to file a complaint, sadly, I don't know that I would rent from anyone again through Vrbo. Also, the AC wasn't working properly by the 3rd day, it was set on 76 and it was 80 in the house every night. There were cocaroches and eggs in the grill even though there was a charge if we didn't clean it. There was also a huge roach in the master bedroom. I didn't complain at first because I know they are a nuissance. John was just saying he was coming there after us to spray for pests. A little late I imagine.

John said there was kids pee in the bed, dog pee, blood on the beds, mud in the carpets. THIS IS STAGED. I'm telling you all right now, DO NOT RENT FROM THIS PERSON. This is a complete lie. I'm so insulted by this, it's making me sick and after we worked so hard to keep the house nice and clean upon leaving, we truly did have a wonderful time and in the end got ripped off.

:( Depending on this money and really quite heartbroken that this has happened.

Wonderful rental!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5. We all enjoyed this beautiful home! The house is clean and well furnished and decorated. The kitchen has everything you need. Your a half hour away from Ft Meyers beach, Sanibel Island, Captiva and Pine Island. All of which are great places to visit. The kids loved the pool and everyone loved the master bath. This was by far the best vacation home we've ever had.

The home was even better than we hoped. Very clean and well maintained. John was always quick to respond to any questions and provided very helpful information. I would definitely recommend this home to friends and family. I loved the fact that it was pet friendly. Our dogs had a great time too!
