Unique Standards - Safety: The Caribbean Island is unique as it is custom built according to our wishes and high demands. It is designed to customers' requests and built according to the latest hurricane standards for your safety. The house is launched for vacation rentals in January 2008. On request we supply you with another website with plenty of pictures of this beautiful home.

Boaters will love the short only 13 minute ride to the river. Of course we have a boat dock on which you also can relax in the sun. You can dolphins, manatees regularly. If you like to tackle you will also like the boat dock that protects you a little bit from the wind. Boat: A Chapparal 25.3 ft. - 285 HP 5.7 l Volvo Penta or a Chapparal 26.2 ft. - 280 HP 5.7 l Volvo Penta can be rented from Cape Escape Boat Rental. You get a contract via us. The boats are insured, which is confirmed in the contracts. Please ask for details.


To get to the Caribbean Island is quite easy. The easiest way is to book a flight to Southwest Florida International Airport, Fort Myers, which is loacated just 30 minutes from the house. You can pick up your rental car directly in the aiport! There is no shuttle neccessary any more! From Miami International the ride is about 2:30 h and from Orlando International 3:20 h.

We personally selected premium furniture, blending colours and design to reflect our Caribbean and Mediterranean influences. The loving 'fine tuning' and luxurious and extensive furnishings give this residence an exclusive and unique charisma. All this made our wish of getting our own 'island' come true. Enjoy the life of Dolce Vita in and on our Caribbean Island! - By the way: Not only hobby cooks will love the excellent kitchen with its stunning granite counter tops and the perfect range of equipment including cooking pots from the world famous German market leader Fissler.
