Guestbook comments from the manager

Rent This House!!

Our family rented this house for a week long relaxing vacation. The house was exactly what we expected from the pictures. It is comfortable and well equipped. I loved how the pool looked out into the canal where we watched birds and turtles. Having coffee and drinks on the dock was a favorite of ours as well. The house is very centrally located for all of the day trips we had planned. Usually in the evening we would come back, grill, and swim. If you are looking for a home away from home, consider this will not regret it. We were so sad to leave. Thank you, for sharing your home with us and making it so easy to rent from you!

Great vacation in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy the quiet life this house is perfect. We enjoyed 5 weeks in this lovely home which was in a quiet neighbourhood close to shopping and golf. Sylvie was very easy to work with and even arranged to have a Decorated Christmas Tree lite when we walked through the front door. Alex the Manager and his wife Heidi were very helpful with recommendations along with making sure we were comfortable. The pool was always warm and we loved being greeted each morning by ducks, turtles and fish. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us and making our trip memorable.

Our Family stayed in the Flamingo Residence in July 2015 and enjoyed our stay. The pool was nice and well maintained the house was immaculate (agreeing with other reviews). We could not have asked for a more pleasant stay. It was wonderful....We wanted to get away from it all and relax and you can at the the Flamingo Residence. The owners and the area mangers are extremely helpful and gracious. We would recommend this rental and would stay again. It was our first experience with VRBO and The Flamingo Residence, owners, and area mangers were wonderful. Thank you for sharing your home and being so helpful!

A perfect vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

The Flamingo Residence was the highlight of the three weeks we spent in Florida. We cannot praise this property too much. It was immaculate, both inside and out. Everything was spotless and equipped with everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay. It is situated on a pleasant, quiet suburban street backing onto a canal, with plenty of greenery all around. We enjoyed watching the turtles and the birds - plenty to see if you can drag yourself away from the sparkling pool and comfortable loungers! Supermarkets, shops and restaurants are all just a short drive away.

We would also like to mention the Manager, Ivo, who came by to see us safely settled in, answered all our queries and left his telephone number in case we had any problems - we didn't!

All in all, nothing to criticize; a wonderful place to stay and we hope to come again next year.

Lovely home with lots of space, a fantastic pool and hot tub. The canal out back was a beautiful view. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The property manager was helpful in providing all details necessary. Location is great, close to restaurants, outlet shopping, beaches, etc. Would definitely stay here again.

Spring on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

Spring can be a very windy and dry time in the Southwest and whenever possible we seek out a seaside get away from our part of the world at that time of year. Friends had recommended Cape Coral, and we were able to find this fine location on line.The house is spacious and spotless , as well being convenient to all the local attractions.We were able to take advantage of the many recommendations by the managers like the Dolphin Cruise as well other rides on the inland water ways. We particularly enjoyed the proximity to Sanibel Island and Captiva making day trips easy and enjoyable - lots of good restaurants in all prices ranges and a very comfortable and restful vacation for us - we wold not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and hope to return in the near future - a truly hassle free vacation from booking to departure! Thank you to our hosts

Our Flamingo Residence is located in the quiet and residential area of SOUTH WEST CAPE CORAL on a fresh water canal - a romantic place with palms, trees and water view.

Shops + supermarket and restaurants are at just a few minutes drive. A bike ride to shopping and restaurants but far enough to enjoy quiet solitude.

Cape Coral is a very pretty city located in sunny, southwest Florida on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River and provides a annual average temperature of 80 degrees with endless sunshine.

Just west of Fort Myers, Cape Coral has hundreds of miles of gorgeous deep-blue canals flowing into the Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico. It is one of the largest waterfront communities, as well as one of the fastest growing cities in the state of Florida.

The popular shelling beaches of Captiva and Sanibel Islands are just minutes away, and several local and state parks offer fishing, boating, swimming and snorkeling and all the popular and fun watersports.

Boats are available to rent and charter and there are many trips available out to sea for fishing or just relaxing.

Golfers will find a course to challenge every skill level either at one of Cape Coral's four 18 hole championship golf courses or at one of its more relaxed 'executive' courses.

Numerous tennis courts and cycleways provide fine facilities throughout the city for a range of options for an invigorating day on or off the court.

Known as an ideal location for family fun, Cape Coral offers a 12 acre family waterpark SUN SPLASH WATER PARK and a Ecopark.

Cape Coral's harbour and waterfront provides a magnet for prestigious yachting+marinas.

Downtown Cape Coral provides a variety of unique specialty shops and well-known restaurants that specialize in ethnic foods, all in an elegant but friendly atmosphere.

The beautiful beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel Island are just minutes away, and the Florida Everglades is approximately an hour's drive from Cape Coral.

One very unique aspect of the city is that it has one of the largest Burrowing Owl populations in the country. During nesting season you will see these little owls sitting on perches along the city streets.

Whatever you want from your holiday you'll find that this growing community maintains a friendly, small-town atmosphere which invites you to discover a wealth of activities and attractions.
