I am an avid fisherman and diver and l love fishing, boating, diving and being on the water or in the water (sea, pool, hot tub). My property managers Mary Jane and Kevin live 5min from the rental home and will take perfect care of you. Please also have a look at my HD YouTube videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/pschaffh/videos

                          Why the Owner Chose Porto Vista:
                          When I bought the house in 2009, it was the middle of the housing-market-crisis and really a lot of houses were on the market. I looked at over 10 houses in the same category. I choose this one because it is very beautiful & spacious, with a big pool with lots of sun morning till evening and because its location is quite close to the exit of the canal system, which is important for me as an avid fisherman who is on the water every day. And I love the two coconut palms next to the entrance.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          I love Cape Coral and this house because for me it is the perfect combination of sun, fun and adventure on the water (fishing, boating, beaches) and a luxurious home with all comfort (pool, hot tub, big TVs, Internet, nice kitchen, AC, nearby shopping and restaurants, etc.). The optional fast and spacious 21' 150HP Hurricane boat also adds a lot to a unique vacation experience; please have a look at my HD boating and fishing videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/pschaffh/videos
