About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, high-end design, top equipment

Villa Camille is synonymous for the Miami lifestyle.

The significance of this villa lies in its luxurious atmosphere & elegant ambience. Our guests appreciate its ample layout & high standard equipment. The villa offers every comfort on 200 m² – with 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms & one office. The large living room is combined with the typical open-plan kitchen & dining area. Amongst other things, there are two flat screen TVs, radio/CD & stereo (even for the pool area), an iPod dock for your own music apps & wireless internet connection.

No matter if you spend your holidays with family or friends: You will enjoy relaxing on the tranquil south-facing terrace, diving in the pool, savouring a drink & the juicy, homemade barbecued steaks. Alternatively, just lean back on one of the white living room sofas, watch a video, listen to music or read a book.

From your own dock, you can start to boat trips & in no time get to the surrounding islands, beaches & the Gulf of Mexico.

High-end design / plenty of space: We put emphasis on a friendly, bright interior design, where guests can feel at ease both during the day and in the evenings. The comfortable furnishings, tasteful lighting and all accessories are new, top-of-the-range and harmonically matched.

Villa Camille transmits a feeling of plenty of space thanks to its architecture, open-plan living and high ceilings. Whether you are holidaying as a couple, a family with children or a group of friends: The living room is designed for everyone to find their favourite spot – as well for groups as for individual activities.

The spacious walk-in closet is especially loved by our female guests. There are large fitted wardrobes in every bedroom.

The double garage offers a lot of space for your rental cars and your fishing, golf and sports equipment. Our two bicycles are at your disposal to go on excursions.

Insider tip: Romantic candle-lit bath in the tub...

Huge barbecue on the pool terrace: The entire 60 m² pool/terrace area is surrounded by a “screen”. This way, you can spend fantastic days on the (heated) pool and enjoy the atmospheric sunsets in the tranquil surroundings – without annoying insects.

The large gas grill in the pool area is always ready for a barbecue dinner. It is especially popular with our male guests. Easy to operate, no waiting times and eco-friendly – you can have your perfect steaks or the fish you caught for dinner on the terrace.

The kitchen is equipped with the most modern appliances, including a fridge/ freezer (with ice maker), glass-ceramic cooker, microwave, dish washer, various electric appliances, and plenty of crockery and cutlery. As a host, you will always have the entire living area and your guests in sight. You will spend lovely dinners with your loved ones on the elegant dining table. Alternatively, just have a quick snack on the breakfast bar.

No barriers to the Gulf of Mexico / own boat!: Not many of the numerous channels in Cape Coral have direct access to the open water. Villa Camille has one of them. Passionate boaters and fishers appreciate this advantage. You will get to the open water without having to pass a watergate (thus not having to wait) and in no time reach the Gulf of Mexico, known for its diversity of fish and other animals.

The drive on the channel alone is amazing – you will not get enough of watching the appealing villas and motor yachts. On the open water, you will see dolphins from very nearby and if you are lucky, you will even have an encounter with the rare manatees. There is lots to discover on trips along the channels as well as around the islands of Sanibel, Captiva and Pine Island, with their sandy beaches and flora and fauna.

Our own boat, a splendid Sea Ray 240 Sundeck Bowrider, we offer at a special rate to our house guests. 'Sea Ray' is known as the 'Mercedes Benz' among the boat brands. Our boat is a make 2005 and is in virtually new condition. The engine is a 5.0 liter MerCruiser fuel injected V-8. Propulsion is via Bravo III dual propellers. There is ample seating for up to seven adults. The tank holds 60 gallons of fuel.

After a long boat trip, on your way back we recommend you make a stopover at “Rumrunners” to eat and drink.

The modern dock has a lift with which you can comfortably get the boat out of the water after your trip.

You can reflect upon the day at the dock under the parasol with a sundowner.

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 19 days and the villa met all our expectations. The location on the canal was stunning and we hired the boat as well so enjoyed many trips on the canal and beyond.

The villa has everything you need plus loads of extras not mentioned. It is spotless and very well looked after.

Wolfgang the owner was very helpful from the booking stage through to the actual stay and always responded quickly to the various questions we asked him.

Tony, the Property Manager was great to deal with as were Jeff and Simone from the management team and Florian who dealt with the boat for us was also very professional.

We had an amazing holiday and if we are back in the area in the future we would definitely stay there again.

Excellent family stay

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four who spent a week in the house. The house is well represented in the pictures and corresponds very well to reality. It is well kept and equipped with everything that was required.

Contact with owner and agency was impeccable and deposit was returned in a timely manner. For European customers there is an account in Germany where you can wire the deposit so you do not need to worry about carrying cash or recieving an american check when returned. Checkin and checkout to the house was good and everything was clearly explained to us. The kids enjoyed the pool which is of good size and depth (1,5m). We kept the pool at 85F which was appreciated by the kids. The total electricity for the week was $65 (whereof $35 was included in rent). There are plenty of towels, bed sheets etc so no need to worry about that. We did not rent the boat but it appeared to be well maintained from what we could see. WiFi worked well

Well assorted Walmart across the street. The shopping centers (outlets) is approximately 30min drive as well as Sanibel Island with the excellent beaches. The local beach in Cape Coral is rather small and nothing extraordinary. We went on dolphin cruise departing from the local marina which was good. We also went to everglades over for one day approx 2hr drive.

The house met our expectations and we can recommend it if you are looking for a rental in Cape Coral

As good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

We have now rented houses in Cape Coral four times and this is by far absolutely the best one.

We felt right at home.

It's beautifully decorated and really stocked up on everything one can have need for.

It's also verry clean and the owner have been soo helpful.

Another plus is that there's a Walmart just across the street.

I can strongly recommend this house and we will definitely hope that it's available next time we're in Florida.

Thoroughly relaxing stay at high quality villa.

  • 5 of 5

I booked villa CAMILLE for a one week stay with my wife and my brother and the owner was very flexible in allowing me to rent the boat for three of those days. The main purpose of our stay was to have a quiet week, boating and chilling-out at the villa and around the pool and eating out at a lot of the numerous restaurants in the area.

I have to say that I was hugely impressed by the layout of the villa, which was typically open-plan and spacious, and with the high quality of all the furnishings and appliances it contained. Everything you might need has been thought of and supplied and it is always good to drink from nice glasses and cook with good quality pots and pans!. WiFi, satellite TV and outside music all worked well. The villa was clean, fresh and felt like everything was free of the signs of 'wear and tear' that you sometimes find. One ceiling fan gave up while we were there and the management team were on-site to fix it the same afternoon. There are no 'rules and regulations' signs plastered around the villa and we felt free to use what we wanted, when we wanted - very homely!

The screened pool area outside was also really nice. It was well kept, felt quite private and had pleasant views over a quiet canal. The pool, whilst not huge, is a nice size for relaxing in and the temperature and quality of the water were both just right - not too much chlorine.

Finally, the boat was a real treat for me. At 26 ft with a powerful 5.0 ltr engine it had lots of space and seating and looked like new. Following a thorough introduction from Captain Manni, It was easy to navigate it along the canals to the Caloosahatchee river where we spent hours exploring some fantastic waterways, spotting dolphins and looking at the luxury properties along the banks.

The owner of the villa, Wolfgang, was a pleasure to deal with answering my many questions before we travelled, mainly about the boat, and made sure that everything was as it should be when we arrived.

I would have no hesitation in recommending villa CAMILLE for couples or families wanting to spend some time in a beautiful area and enjoy the real Florida, getting away from all those parks and their queues! We had a great week and I would love to return soon. Thanks Wolfgang!!

The boat was a real treat, 26ft and lots of power

Die Ferienvilla ist schön eingerichtet, sehr gut ausgestattet, sauber und ruhig gelegen. Der Wallmart in Fußnähe bietet alles für die tägliche Versorgung. Der Pool sorgt für Erfrischung auch bei heißen Temperaturen und mit dem tollen Motorboot kann man die fantastische Natur vom Wasser aus entdecken - Schwimmen und Delfine aus der Nähe beobachten inbegriffen.

Anreise, Einchecken, Betreuung vor Ort, Auschecken, Rückreise - alles tadellos. Wir hatten einen tollen Urlaub!
