beautiful house but came across a few issues

  • 3 of 5

The house had everything you could possibly think of ... cooking utensils , fishing gear , beach stuff , etc. The view was beautiful and the pool was perfect !The two things I wasn't too happy about was the "property manager" Elke- that we had to meet with for check-in was a bit inconveniencing time-wise in my opinion. Myself personally, when I go on vacation , I go to see things and she didn't want to come out until 10 am so we decided on 9:30 to meet up for check -in...she showed up 15 minutes late which i wasn't too happy with as we had plans made due to our short stay of only 3 days there . I would have preferred the check - in / check out be emailed or something for convenience purposes ( which she did text me to check - out due to our early departure time) . I just felt for our short stay , it was kind of a hassle; especially when there were signs all over the house that stated "the property manager was at your disposal - to call anytime , etc". just wish she was a bit more flexible time wise for check-in / check- out .We then had to check- out the next day as we we're planning on leaving fairly early the following morning to do our 16 hour drive to get home and she wanted to come out at 4 pm and no later . We were out doing things at this time of the day . We were out explorer. WE WERE ALMOST ALLIGATOR BAIT DUE TO KAYAK ALMOST SINKING . We took it out onto the canal for not even 10 minutes and the back end of the kayak immediately started taking on water from the rear of the kayak . In the panic , we rushed back to the dock so the kayak didn't completely sink in the canal . We struggled to get it out the water to literally save it it from sinking . It was a hassle to say the least . We were really disappointed because we looked forward to going out into the canal to explore the area .

Owner's Response: Stephanie, we are happy to hear, that you liked our house and that you appreciate the efforts that we are doing with regards to full equipment. The more we are surprised, that you are spending just one sentence on this and nearly a page full of complains on two issues, where one we would consider as not relevant and the other which is simply not true! As you may imagine, a property manager has a couple of houses to accomplish. And therefor it might sometimes be difficult to find matching times for check-in and check-out. However, we apologize if this situation caused any trouble for you. Nevertheless, we strongly have to contradict your “sensational story” about the kayak. When you had left, we had a professional coming to our house to check the kayak and he found no issue at all. He rather assumed an improper handling or overloading of the kayak. If there was indeed an alligator in the water, you should consider yourself as extremely happy, because they are so rare in that canal, as it is winning the lottery. And by the way, even if the inner part of the kayak was full of water, it still would not sink. So what is it all about?

Just What the Doctor Ordered

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place that was quiet, scenic and restful. Villa Amara fit the bill. First of all, Markus and Sonja were very helpful in the weeks before the trip, especially a couple days before when we did not get the promised information on entry into the house, directions, etc. from Homeaway. Sonja gave us what we needed and everything went smoothly. The house is just as nice as it appears in the pictures. It felt like a home away from home (TVs, stereo, nice patio furniture, bikes, washing machine/dryer, etc.) and I would highly recommend to future travelers. You won't be disappointed.

Immaculately clean and Well kept in a very safe area.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. The home has everything you could possibly need to stay in and cook and close to many amazing restaurants if you prefer to go out. The pool and spa are both very refreshing. Checking in and out was an easy, seamless process and everything was straightforward and as described in the listing. Will definitely be returning!

Wonderful Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

We searched for a long time for a place to stay in Florida in the Fort Myers area that was in a quiet location and that had a swimming pool. We were thrilled with our choice of Villa Amara. The home is fully equipped, clean, and decorated nicely. The pool and hot tub are awesome with the bonus of a great view. Fort Myers is a short drive and there is plenty to do there, but we found that we were content to sit outside, enjoy the pool, the sunshine, and the peace and quiet! Hope to return!

Awesome Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our time at Villa Amara. We stayed a week and found the house had everything we needed to relax and then some. I would not hesitate to rent this home again and have already recommended it to several friends. Below are some tidbits of information from my personal experience:

- The owners were very timely in their responses which was greatly appreciated. My security deposit was returned with no issues.

- The pool and spa were spotless and very well maintained. There were also plenty of beach towels and a few pool floats to utilize.

- The view from the lanai was very peaceful and beautiful. We spent a great deal of time just relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the canal view.

- The neighborhood is very quiet and we never had any issues with traffic or any noise.

- The house is also located in a good area not too far from shopping or any supplies you might need.

- While we were there the automatic garage door spring broke and we had to contact the property manager (we could not get out of the garage). Someone came out in a short time period and determined further repairs were needed and called for additional assistance. The repair personnel were very nice and we enjoyed the pool while waiting for the repairs to be completed (took about 3.5 hours total).

- The beds were super comfy and the house was very clean. (Just a few stains on the carpet but understand that happens even in the best of situations sometimes).

- We did deal with some annoying "sugar ants" but it's Florida and expected. We found some bug spray under the counter and that was a fairly easy fix.

- We fished from the boat dock several times. Unfortunately we only caught catfish but the poles supplied worked well and it was still relaxing. (Catch and Release)

- My only "complaint" (if you want to call it that) was paying for electricity out of the deposit. Don't get me wrong I knew I would have to from the agreement I signed but just seems petty to expect a renter to cover that additional expense in addition to the rental fee. Good for the homeowner but sort of a downer for the renter. was spelled out in the agreement so no hidden fees.

Overall this was one of my favorite FL vacations and I am confident you will not regret a decision to rent Villa Amara.
