Fantastic Stay at Villa Amara!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures depicted here reflect what you will find - a lovely, peaceful and private paradise! The property was clean and well-maintained (honestly, the cleaning crew does a great job and this house is one of the cleanest of the many various properties we've rented over the years); the amenities are many, and the location is simply outstanding. Beautiful sunsets over the nature preserve on the other side of the canal, with the sunlight sparkling on the water as we sipped our evening drinks - we've never felt so relaxed. We availed ourselves of the fishing equipment and the kayak, both fun; we meant to ride the bikes but we ran out of time due to some area sight-seeing and activities we'd planned. The pool and spa are truly wonderful and very refreshing. Some of our family lives in Cape Coral and we visited with them - one night they came over to fix us dinner at Villa Amara, and the kitchen was more than adequate with everything they needed and then some. Everything is labeled and organized, there are helpful instruction sheets, and there are information books and guides (on the property, on the area's history, customs and attractions and much more) that are quite useful. The attention to detail is amazing, and nothing is lacking. Excellent WiFi, a good variety of movies and books - - they've thought of everything for your convenience, comfort and enjoyment! Elke, the property manager, was absolutely fabulous - we love her! We had a question about something on the property while we were there, we called her, and she came right over - extremely responsive, and check in / check out was a breeze. We also had the pleasure of meeting Markus and Sonja and their son, who were in town visiting their other property. They were all delightful, as was our communication with them which was always prompt (not always easily done with the time difference between here and Germany but they did it, which we sincerely appreciated). So to summarize, we cannot recommend Villa Amara highly enough - if you are fortunate enough to stay here, you will definitely be pleased (and probably most reluctant to leave, as were we)! When next we are in town visiting our family - and this lovely area - we will be sure to come back to the beautiful oasis of Villa Amara...

Wonderful two weeks!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our two week stay at your home. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable and the view was beautiful. We especially enjoyed the pool and lanai areas. Although the Florida weather was a bit cool for March, we were still able to enjoy the outdoors. We would rent the house again, but it is already rented for Jan. through March 2019!

Very nicely kept property

  • 5 of 5

Villa Amara was a lovely property everything was well-maintained and in 100% working order. The pool and hot tub were great and there was plenty of room for our 3-person family (plus our four-legged family member!). The property manager was very pleasant and came by during 'check-in' and 'check-out' to ensure all was well. The canal behind the property is very quiet with little boat traffic. Attractions and beaches are anywhere from 15-60 min away, so the property is in a nice central location.
