About the property

internet connection, kids playground near by

Book a relaxing wellness holiday in our spacious and light luxury house Villa Princess and relax by the romantic pool (south side) with heating at 28 degrees on a 1000 m2 property where you will find a groomed garden with tropical plants and you do not have to worry about noise from nearby neighbors. In a 3 minute drive you can get to the sea and have different options for hours, day or weeks for renting boats or kayaks or booking day tours to the most beautiful islands. In just under a half hour you can get to the long beaches in Sanibel, Captiva or Fort Meyers Beach. There are also a lot of good and traditional restaurants and shopping centers nearby. Biking or skating on Pine Island is very popular. You can go fishing in the lake. The stunning sunsets are worth notice - you can enjoy them from the pool area. We recommend the many direct flights from Europe.

Care: A German-English management service is on site. You can be instructed about the house and they will be helpful upon departure. The friendly management will inform you about shopping options, attractions and 'must-see' destinations.

Boat rides: We are only located about 1 mile from the sea. Rental boats in different sizes and strengths can be rented in Matlache and Pine Island and for hours, days or weeks. You can start here directly by the open sea without locks and without long canals. For those who are not experienced with boats it would be best with pontoon boats. Boat licenses are not required in Florida. However, you should not be completely inexperienced. You can search beautiful days without having to pay a week price in advance. There the island world is breathtaking and always remains unforgettable. For those who would prefer to be driven, there are organized boat rides with Tropic Star in Pine Island to Cayo Costa, Cabbage Key, Boca Grande (enough time for swimming).

Highlights: The lake is very popular for fishing and thus, our lake patio is ideal for all fishes. The lake view is ideal for young and old - long-term renters are welcome. The heated pool is very comfortable during the winter months. Matlache and Pine Island are also very romantic and ideal for biking, canoeing and kayaking. Between a 3 and 10 minute drive and you can rent boats at 4 harbors. In Matlache and Pine Island, boats can be rented - also daily! Direct Gulf access without locks and without long and slow canals and rivers. The dream islands of Cabbage Key, Cayo Costa, Captiva and many more can be easily reached from here.

Great location close to everything we wanted to do.

  • 5 of 5

Ingo is great to deal with. The house was in great shape in a great quiet location. When sitting on the dock you get to watch the pelicans and other birds enjoying the lake. My husband has a disability and the house is very accessible for him as well as the pool. Looking forward to travelling again.

Beautiful property far from the Gulf beaches

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful, the pool was clean and wonderful. The property is as advertised or better. Communications with the owners were easy and prompt. We received the deposit back promptly. The reason I did not give the property 5 stars is it's location. It is close to a very nice island of Matlacha with great places to eat where you can kayak and paddleboard, but it is far from the Gulf beaches. It took us over an hour to get to the nearest beach (some of it in traffic). This was our first time in the area and we did not expect the distances between places. Also, I would recommend leaving instructions in English as we could not understand garbage / recycling instructions in German (we did figure things out). All in all, it was a great deal.

Cape Coral November 2016

  • 5 of 5

When I received the "how was your stay" mail I was reluctant to write or give it a rating! why you ask, well if I go on about how nice the house was or what a great position and quiet location it is in, it will fill up fast and be booked up when I try to visit next year!! I have visited Florida's Gulf coast for the past 12 years, on many occasions twice a year on business and I always stay in a house in either Marco Island or Cape Coral, over this period I diligently hunt for a good property which will have me returning, sadly they are hard to find, but this ones a keeper so please Ingo and Tanya don't sell it any time soon I would hate to cross off another one.

Great stay.

Relax-Pool-Urlaub an Traumlage

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa besticht durch sein einmaliges Raumgefühl, ist mit Liebe zum Detail durchgestylt und hat einen Charme, der einem nicht mehr loslässt. Auch fehlt es an nichts, um die Zeit im Haus zu geniessen. Die Suite mit anliegendem Bad besticht durch seinen grosszügigen Grundriss und seiner Ausstattung.

Die Lage der Villa im weniger dicht besiedelten Norden von Cape Coral ist für Gäste wie wir, die die Ruhe, Abgeschiedenheit und Einsamkeit bevorzugen, goldrichtig und lässt die Hektik des europäischen Lebens weit hinter sich. Dafür ist die Pine Island in kurzer Fahrzeit zu erreichen und der Supermarkt Publix an der Kreuzung Burnt Store Rd und 78er ermöglicht Einkaufen in sehr kurzer Distanz. Direkt am See - ohne angrenzende Nachbarhäuser gelegen - mit ganztägiger Sonnenausrichtung bietet der Pool und die Gartenanlage mit Palmen und uneinsehbarer Bepflanzung alles für einen erholsamen und tollen Urlaub. Ein gepflegtes Anwesen runden einen bemerkenswerten Gesamteindruck ab. Die Grösse der Lanai ist sehr einladend, gedeckte gemütliche Sitzmöglichkeiten mit Deckenventilator sind vorhanden, der Pool originell gestaltet und Liegen ausreichend vorhanden. Mein Lieblingsplatz war der Schiffsteg direkt am Wasser, der mit dem schönen Steintisch und Sonnenschirm zum gemütlichen Verweilen einlädt. Die Blicke über den weitläufigen See sind einmalig und wenn dann eine leichte Brise einem versucht zu kühlen, ist das Glück perfekt.

Der Vermieter ist sehr sympathisch, hilfsbereit und die Kommunikation ist hervorragend. Wir können sowohl Haus wie Vermieter uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Ein Ort zum Verlieben und Wiederkommen!

Komfortable Villa

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben 4 Wochen in dieser sehr gut Ausgestatteten Villa verbracht. Alles war so , wenn nicht sogar besser , wie der Vermieter sie beschrieben hatte!

Es war ein Genuss von der Terrasse, welche den ganzen Tag über im Schatten ist,über den Salzwasser Pool auf den angrenzenden Kanal zu schauen. Wer Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit sucht, ist hier gut Aufgehoben. Links und Rechts keine Häuser, von Bambus sehr schön verdeckt. Am Bootsteg kann man Angeln, sein gemietetes Boot anlegen, oder einfach beim Bier oder Wein die Vögel, Schildkröten,den kleinen Alligator beobachten.

Sollte es doch einmal ein kleines Problem geben, dann ist der Gute Hausgeist Erika mit Rat und Tat zur Stelle.

Traumhaftes Haus direkt am Wasser

  • 5 of 5

Eine Woche haben wir in Villa Princess verbracht. Trotz teilweise viel Regen haben wir die Zeit genossen. Die Villa ist sehr grosszügig und komplett ausgestattet. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt.

Unsere Kinder 8 + 10 waren aus dem Pool nicht raus zu bekommen. Auch sie wollen gerne wieder hierher.

Supermarkt 5 min fahren. Bootssteg vorhanden. Bilder im Internet sind eigentlich schlechter als original.

Bei unserer Anreise hatten wir Probleme, da unser GPS die Adresse nicht kannte.

Cape Coral
Car: recommended

Cape Coral, located by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, can be described as a paradise. The climate is not only extremely comfortable during the winter; also - particularly - in the summer you will feel comfortable here. On average, there are 330 days of sun per year in Florida. The day temperatures during the winter hardly fall below 20-23 degrees. During the high summer, the thermometer can reach between 28-35 degrees. There is always a slight breeze from the Gulf of Mexico. In front of Cape Coral you will find hundreds of inhabited and secluded islands, including the sub-tropic dream islands of Sanibel and Captiva Island with their stunning, white, secluded beaches. You can reach this island in a short time by car.

Golf: By bike you can get to the Royal Tee Golf course in about 10 minutes (27 holes). The very beautiful Coral Oaks Golf course is a 5 minute drive away (18 holes).
