"My husband and I stayed in Dream Villa for March and April of 2015. The location was great as it was close to both shopping and restaurants. The property is well maintained and any concerns that we had were immediately rectified by Laurie. It was a pleasure dealing with such a caring owner as we have not always had that experience in the past with other vacation properties. The beautiful pictures accurately reflect the property. We were lucky enough to spend an afternoon watching two Manatees feed and play right in front of the Lanai. We are already looking forward to next year."

"We recently stayed (end of March) and I cannot say enough about how wonderful our accommodations and trip was.
We have Two daughters ages 7 & 10 and we had a blast. The home was perfect for the four of us.
Someone from the Property management company greeted us and answered all of our questions right away and we have to say, the house was immaculate.
The house had everything from in room laundry right down to pool toys for the kids. It was fabulous.
Our favorite “hangout” was definitely the pool area. Great large screened in area with a grill. We were able to eat all of our meals pool side and enjoy playing basketball in the pool with the girls. The nonskid surface for the pool area and bathroom was a huge plus as well.
Being so close to Cape Coral we were able to run to the Cape Coral beach often, even if it was just for an hour!
The location was a big bonus as well. We were so close to grocery store, restaurants and drug/convenient stores. Plus the neighborhood is very quiet and in a great area, we felt very safe and comfortable.
My girls are still talking about the “gecko” room that they stayed in and tell everyone about how much fun we all had and how much they miss it as they felt like it was their home.
The kitchen was great, it had everything we needed to cook with from utensils to the pots and pans.
We will definitely be coming back to this amazing home for all that it offered.

"Our holiday was all that we had hoped for and extremely relaxing. As others have said Yilin was very responsive and Kadi (next door) was very helpful and friendly on the few occasions that we needed her. We are from the UK and are used to renting houses in the UK. We have stayed in hotels and apartments in Florida before but this was the first time that we had used Homeaway and rented a house. We were worried about the process but we need not have been. Everything went to plan and the house was easy to find.
Our first impression was 'wow'; it was what we expected and more. We got used to the house very quickly and the the lovely pool. There is a lot of attention to detail with such things as hand soap, and shower gel and shampoo in the bathrooms. And lots of kitchen equipment.
We did have some problems but we still rate the property 5 stars as overall it was so good. We couldn't use the pool for a couple of days because it went green. Kadi contacted the pool people and they were very prompt. It meant that we did our shopping for bargains on a different day than originally planned. So not a huge problem. We did manage to buy lots of cheap (for us English) shoes and clothing to bring home. Also near the end one of the air conditioning units stopped working. I wish that I had asked for help from Kadi sooner as it was only a fuse that had tripped.
We English are used to lower temperatures and so the air-con was on a lower setting than advised at night. This meant that we had charges for extra electricity taken from our security deposit. Slightly irritating but not unexpected. The other irritating factor was bank charges taken from our security deposit; but unavoidable for visitors from overseas. Having said that we had received the balance in our bank account within a week.
My wife liked the portable iron but didn't like the fixed ironing board in the small room with the washer. Especially as that room didn't have air-con. A suggestion would be to have a normal ironing board available.
Our only other comment of note is that the pool deck is uneven and some of the tiles wobbly when walking on them. We did however spend most of our time in the pool or on the pool deck.
My teenage boys also very much appreciated the internet which they could not have coped without!
Lastly one of the best things was sitting on the pool deck looking at the magnificent sunsets, and watching the lightning shows.

"What an amazing time we had at this beautiful home. It was furnished with all the necessities and more! The beds were comfortable, the pool was refreshing, and the home was wonderful. We can not say enough great things about this home. I did contact the owner because I had some questions. She was very helpful and pleasant. This home is perfect!"
