I had such a wonderful time on my vacation! We stayed for one week, and one night. Why the extra night? Because the owner/property manager is amazing! They kept making the vacation even better, with extra nights, margarita machine, and a super amazing pool! He also provides lots of little things such as bikes, fishing poles, which you can use to go to the backyard and fish in the canal! I didn't catch anything, but if you stay, maybe you can give it a try!

Manager response: We try our best to make every guest's vacation special. One that you will remember long after the vacation is over. And based on the comments of our guests like you, I'd have to say mission accomplished. We try to treat our guests the way we would like to be treated, not just as renters, but truly as guests. Expect to feel like you are staying at the home of a friend or family member. In a word....welcomed. And you are very welcomed and we hope to see you again in the future!
Our month long stay was such a wonderful experience. From the beautiful landscaping to the overall amenities of this villa was more than we expected. All the rooms were furnished so well with updated furniture. The Master Bedroom and bath were very spacious and located on the opposite side of the other two bedrooms and bath. Ideal for our guests who visited us. The open kitchen located next to the large Family room was great for entertaining. Access to the patio and pool from either the dining room, kitchen or family room through sliding glass doors was so convenient. The solar heated pool was perfect for our grandchildren, and the fishing in the canal was so much fun. Just about everything we needed for our stay was provided, including the propane gas for the big, four burner grill, all the bedding, kitchen utensils, flat screen tvs, washer & dryer, weekly pool and lawn service, and on and on. My wife and I highly recommend this vacation villa.

Home Away from Home
Home Away from Home
We enjoyed our stay at this vacation villa. The owners were easy to reach and accommodating during the booking process and during our stay. We felt welcome the moment we unlocked the door to their home. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. It was a pleasure to take morning walks in the neighborhood or just sit outside and gaze at the canal. We even saw some manatees one evening. The house was very clean, neat and decorated attractively. During the winter months it was a treat to see flowers and trees blooming in the yard and on the patio. We were able to eat lunch at the table on the lanai, swim in the solar heated pool and sit in the sun on the comfortable loungers. When the sun was too hot, there was a comfortable seating area where we could relax in the shade. We appreciated that the villa was pet-friendly and our small dog settled in comfortably. She also appreciated taking a break from the winter weather up north! It was nice to have a garage to park our car. The owner also provided some “extras”, including beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas to take along if you decide to visit one of the local beaches for a day of sun and sand. The Cape Coral area is close to many wonderful attractions such as Sanibel and Captiva Islands. We also enjoyed day trips to Naples, Marco Island and Sarasota for sightseeing. There are great restaurants to try out and the shopping is fantastic at the Miramar Outlet Mall. There are also brochures in the home and the owners send emails to keep you informed about local attractions, restaurants and events. We hope to return this lovely home in the future.

The location of this rental was perfect. The house was clean, well maintained, well equipped and close to excellent restaurants, shopping, and beaches. We certainly enjoyed the pool and other amenities. The owner was very helpful in answering questions and making suggestion for places of interest. The property was located in a neighbourhood with safe walking areas for pets and young children. The house layout was very family friendly with lots of space for those who wished to do their own thing. We would recommend this property to friends and family. This was a great place to relax and unwind and to be as active or as laid back as you wished.

Manager response: We are so glad that you enjoyed our location, convenient to shops, beach and restaurants yet very safe and quiet neighborhood. Thank you also for noticing how spacious and roomy our home is, especially for families that enjoy areas where they can congregate together and other areas where the can enjoy some solitude from too much of a good thing. It was a pleasure having you visit with us and hope to see you back in the future.
Great time at Villa Nemo
Great time at Villa Nemo
We had a wonderful reunion with our sons and their families in your comfortable home in this quiet and convenient neighborhood. The rooms were spacious which made it easy to spend time together and the kitchen was well-equipped for making nutritious meals (and the occasional margarita). The heated, screened-in pool was great for our little ones – they had a blast; and the alarm system announcements of open doors is a super safety idea. Coming a far distance, we appreciated the use of the four sturdy beach chairs, towels and cooler for our trips to the beach. Cape Coral beach was family-friendly as well as clean and well-maintained. We also enjoyed a visit to the Regional Lakes park in Ft Myers. Thanks for the frequent email notices with cost saving coupons and deals; however, our group spent most of our time just hanging out together at the villa. Thank you for a great week! - The Hill Family

Manager response: Glad you and your family had a wonderful time at our villa. Sounds like you will have some very special memories of your family together in sunny southern Florida. Happy to hear that you had everything that you needed for a great time with the family all together, and got out a little to enjoy the area beaches and parks. Please come back and see us again soon!

Un séjour très agréable dans une villa tout confort à Cape Coral. Le propriétaire est au petit soin pour ses hôtes et la villa très spacieuse dispose de tout ce que peut rêver le vacancier. La piscine avec vue sur le canal est très appréciée. Un excellent endroit pour explorer la côte ouest de la Floride de Naples à Tampa.

Manager response: Thank you so much for the kind words about our villa, it's location and service. It was a pleasure having you and we hope to see you back in the future.
After a 24 hour drive down, plus getting slightly lost trying to find the right street (the property manager was easy to reach and directed us when our GPS failed miserably,) we pulled up to a pretty, picturesque property. We opened the front door and could not believe our eyes. The first words out of everyone's mouth were, "This was totally worth it." The home is beautifully decorated. It's airy and spacious with amazing backyard views from nearly every room. The furniture is very comfortable (couches in particular) and just made us feel relaxed at all times. We are a family with four young children, so we spent most of our days swimming in the pool and fishing in the canal behind the house. The pool is small, but was fine for our family (for adults, it's more of a "cooling off" pool than a "swim around" pool. It was very comfortable for the adults and the perfect size for young kids to swim around.) We loved our vacation and have absolutely no complaints. John, the owner, was fantastic and easy to work with. Ingrid, the property manager, is close by and easily accessible when we had questions. They've really made sure there are no worries while there. We are not new to renting vacation homes (our family has been renting them over the past 10 or so years,) and I can confidently say that this is one of the nicest homes I have ever stayed in. We went off season, so the price was phenomenal, but even during high tourist season I'd say this home is well worth the money. Thanks for such a lovely stay! We've already recommended the property to multiple friends and family (especially those who are able to fly down instead ;)

Awesome vacation home away from home 5/5 starsGuest comment entered by manager
Awesome vacation home away from home 5/5 stars
This had to be one of the nicest vacations we have ever taken. The house was absolutely gorgeous and very homey. It was much bigger than expected. There are sliding glass doors in several of the rooms, including the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a high bed, comfortable mattress, and huge bathroom with one of the biggest showers I have ever seen!. The home is situated on a canal and the kids had a blast catching jellyfish in the net. The pool was great to be able to cool off after a long day of tanning. It was just like it was described and more. My family loved it, and we would definitely recommend it to our friends!

Great Cape Coral vacation
Great Cape Coral vacation
Six of us stayed in the house for 5 night and loved it. Spacious, tastefully decorated will all the amenities one can think of. We especially enjoyed the lanai and pool area; We fished in the canal off the dock and even caught and released a fish. There are plenty of brochures and information about the area attractions and restaurants in the house. Even beach towels, chairs and umbrellas are provided. John and Ingrid where very flexible, accommodating and have made our stay very enjoyable.Thanks to John's tips, we've visited a nice local beach and went on shark fishing "expedition". We will definitely rent this house again.

About: Carole and John would like to welcome you to their home in the beautiful Pelican neighborhood of Cape Coral. John has many fond memories of growing up by the ocean, and loves saltwater fishing. Now relocated to the upper Midwest, the winters can be long and hard. Living near the Great Lakes is just not the same as the sights, smells and sounds of the sea. We have vacationed throughout Florida with our family through the years, but Florida's west coast has a special attraction. We bought this home hoping to instill the same fond memories of life near the ocean in our children.
Why Private Homes, Southwest:
The west coast of Florida has lots to offer. Cape Coral has the perfect balance of a modern city with new housing, Gulf access, and affordable living. The SW Cape is known for its safe and peaceful neighborhoods, with easy Gulf access and many amenities nearby. Our particular location is the best. Tucked away, our 4 block neighborhood is surrounded on all sides by saltwater canals just like a moat. This adds to the feeling of safety and security as well as limited to local traffic only. Yet we are located less than 1 mile from downtown Cape Coral with all its shops and restaurants. It just couldn't be any more convenient!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
You will enjoy picking fresh oranges and grapefruits for breakfast from the tree in our backyard. Or perhaps you will enjoy fishing or crabbing from the dock toward evening. Because the neighborhood is surrounded by canals on all sides with only one road in and out, there is a feeling of safety and security when the children go for a walk or ride their bikes in the neighborhood. Are you nature lovers like us? If so, look closely and you just might see a passing manatee, dolphin or turtle in the canal. There are also burrowing owls not far away and ibis, herons and egrets frequent the property. Enjoy the lush tropical foliage that thrives in this paradise oasis.
