I have to say that this is the best house I have stayed in so far...I have stayed in a lot of rentals but this one was special. Christian went out of his way to help make sure we had a fabulous trip and we did. His house was exactly as it was described, and the location is close to everything. The house was clean and it provided everything we needed for everything we wanted to do. I plan on telling everyone I know about this house and how helpful Christian was with making us feel like family. I recommend this property to anyone who wants to have a great vacation in a great house that is close to the best restaurants like Fords Garage and Papa Joes, these are just a few of my favorites...Thank you again for a wonderful stay and going above and beyond what any other owner would have done. I plan to stay again as I visit the area at least 2 times a year.
We had a really great stay, the house is very clean an so close to everything we needed. We would definitely stay again. If there is anything that could be improved on it would be the daily incidental items that were not provided such as paper towels, toilet paper garbage bags and dishwasher detergent, I did not mind providing these things I just expected them to be provided.no big deal just another trip to the store. Thank you for the lovely time.
My husband & I stayed in the home for the month of Jan. During that time, 2 of our children & their families visited us. They both have children 2 years & younger, and the house configuration, furniture, location, quietness of neighborhood, and general comfort ability of the home was perfect for us. It was wonderful to have our own pool with lanai so we had sun and shade as well as an enclosed area for the toddler. He thoroughly loved the geckos on the pool deck screen too! The location to the Yacht Club Beach was great. Perfect for young kids and we loved eating at The Boat House. Walks around the neighborhood were safe at all times of day and were low-traffic enough that we felt comfortable bringing the children in their strollers. This was our first time to Cape Coral and we definitely plan to come back. Christian was very responsive and helpful as was his management team on site. The home was clean, well equipped, beautifully landscaped,new, and met all our needs.
Our family stayed in Christian's Cape Coral home for a week at Christmas so that we could spend time with family in Fort Myers. Arranging our stay with Christian was easy, and working with the rental manager in town was a breeze as well. Our whole family was thrilled with the home. With four bedrooms, the house comfortably accommodated five adults, and the main living space was open, comfortable and gave us plenty of opportunity to spend visiting with each other.
The kitchen was well equipped with dishes, silverware, cooking utensils and appliances--including a nice new blender for making pina coladas. We enjoyed spending time on the lanai, and it was even warm enough to swim in December. We also liked sitting at the "tiki" table on the canal and watching the fish swimming around.
The home comes equipped with a helpful guide for both the house and the area. Be sure to check it out during your stay.
The only minor issue that we encountered was that the cable and internet were out when we arrived. Christian had alerted us to this when the property manager checked on the home prior to our arrival, so we knew to expect this and had a DVD at the ready. The issue was quickly resolved.
A few folks in our family had a change in travel plans mid-week, and Christian was very responsive and accommodating when we requested to add one more night to our stay.
We hope to return again in the future. It was a wonderful experience.
I have rented many vacation properties in Florida - this is my 9th - so I have a lot of experience. This was my worst experience. I want to be very clear about what the problems were so it is important to understand that there are three aspects to this review: the house, the owner and the property managers.
The house is beautiful. Just as pictured. We were really happy when we first arrived. (The owner has already threatened me with legal action if I write a bad review - he is under the impression that I am going to lie about the house and he fails to understand that my problems are with him and the property managers).
I should also note that we rented a boat from the property managers at the recommendation of the owner. Don't do this!! The boat was a piece of junk and the property managers refused to meet with me or to discuss a refund for the days that the boat was broken down.
The owner/managers will insist on meeting with you twice to take and then return your deposit. This is the first time I have EVER been required to meet with a property manager. They will insist that you pay the deposit in cash. If you're renting a boat from them you will need to fork over thousands in cash for the deposits. They will then show up to refund those deposits. If you're lucky.
On the last evening of our vacation we sat around for over 2 hours waiting for the manager to show up. He never showed, never called or texted. They claim they had a medical emergency but didn't have the decency to spend 10 seconds to send me a text letting me know. The next morning as we prepared to leave, not knowing if I was being scammed, I sent a text saying that there was a leak in the house. They responded immediately. So they are very good at managing property, not so good at taking care of tenants. They refused to discuss the boat problems with me and did not show up to fix a small problem in the house as promised.
The owner will expect you to clean the house before you leave. He sent me a picture of dog hair and complained I hadn't vacuumed. He knew we had dogs and we paid for cleaning. Why would I clean his house? Especially while his managers had disappeared holding my deposit money.
I had asked the owner for an all-in quote which he provided but then in the contract he added a charge for electricity which turned out to be about $20/day.
The toilets and showers worked ALMOST every day.
I'd have more to say but I'm out of space.
Being new to HomeAway, I was a little hesitant to book something I had never seen before. You're always afraid you'll show up and it's either a scam, or the place looks nothing like the pictures. NOT THE CASE HERE!
From the first email correspondence, owner Christian was prompt with his responses, and patient with my never ending questioning. We frequent Cape Coral from NJ (2x/yr) but this was our first time renting a home here.
We could not have been happier. The home looks exactly like the pictures. Many updates, clean (very) and well stocked. Full kitchen, lots of cups, silverware, pots & pans, towels (both bath and beach/pool!), all of which are essential for a party of 7 people. There is a 1.5 car garage which is stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, fishing poles, kids pool/beach toys, a cooler, and even two bicycles. Great laundry room just off the kitchen, including a washer, dryer, vacuum, iron, ironing board, wash sink, and reusable bags for groceries or a trip to the beach.
Bedrooms were a good size, bathrooms were clean and come with a couple hotel sized shampoo, conditioner and soap bottles. The covered porch was amazing. Included a large table with room for 6, perfect for eating at. We had one day of rain on our stay, but we stayed out there, read and watched the storm without getting a rain drop on us. Pool was well maintained and warm, there are nice lounge chairs provided with cushions. The dock was such a nice feature, the tiki hut was great and has lights for night time. All new and very well built.
We had one snag while staying, but that was resolved within hours. AC unit just needed its annual discharge pipe cleared. The only thing to keep in mind while staying here is due to the high ceilings and pool, the house does suck up a bit of energy. I would keep the blinds closed during the day and kept the air around 73-74 degrees. Included in the stay is $25 towards energy costs (A/C, lights, electric and pool pump I assume). Should you go over that, you have to pay the balance. We stayed 5 days so we were allotted $17.85 towards energy costs for the week. We ended up paying an overage of $50, which was kind of disappointing. Like I said, we didn't have the air below 73 degrees (Thank goodness!). I don't know anyone in Florida who spends $200/month in electric bills so that would be my ONLY critique on this house.
All in all, we had a wonderful time, and I would absolutely recommend this home. Thanks again! - Heather
