Spring Break for family of 7
"The home was everything we expected. Very nice neighborhood. Great Fishing in the canal behind the house. The home owners were accessible to us by phone and email. This is a plus when property management companies are involved. The house, pool and amenities were amazing. My wife loved the kitchen and it was equipped with everything we needed and more."

"This was our fourth villa rental in Florida and one of the biggest and best. The description and photo's provided by the owner were accurate.
The villa has a huge open plan living area and three amazingly big bedrooms. Lots of room for everyone to have there own privacy. Air conditioning kept the villa cool as well as ceiling fans in the bedrooms and downstairs seating area. All the beds were very comfortable and the rooms had plenty of storage. The downstairs was fully tiled and the upstairs rooms and landing had a luxury carpet. The seating area had 2 big comfortable leather settees and a massive TV, but we had a fight to see who sat on the chaise longue first as it overlooked the pool and lake.
We had breakfast outside by the pool each morning (not overlooked). We had imagined that the heart shaped pool would be fairly small, so we were surprised to find it was really quite large. We borrowed the inflatables to relax on while we cooled off and used the spa. The 4 sunbeds were comfy with cushions and were used every day. During the hottest part of the day the house sheltered part of the outside area and provided shade to cool down in.
We spent many moments down by the dock watching to fish jumping in the lake. We were also treated to a visit from two dolphins one evening too!
The villa was in a very nice residential area, and restaurants and supermarkets were a few minutes drive away. There is plenty to see in South West Florida and the villa was a great base for us.
Dealt with the owner, Cerstin, directly. Great lady, responded to my emails immediately.
We had an amazing time in the US this year, helped by the fact that the position of the villa made it a great touring base and the villa was just perfect.
I would definitely recommend it to friends or family."

"We've rented the villa Sunny Escape for 2 weeks at the end of December 2014 and we had so much fun! The house was very clean, spacious, the pool and the hot tub were great. We really enjoyed the theatre room at night! The house is close to everything! Mario was very nice! We<ve loved it so much that we're planning to rent it again next December!"

"Our family spent the week at this lovely home at the end of July. It was a last minute decision to spend our last week of summer vacation together away from the hustle bustle of home. Best decision ever! The owner was so helpful and accommodating. The management company so helpful. We lacked for nothing in this home. Although the Florida sunshine tried to hide, we found many sunny moments. From dips in the pool to sunsets on the dock, we enjoyed every moment. So many beaches to discover nearby. Our favorite was Sanibel Island where we got to swim with a dolphin! Oh, the mango tree in the back was the icing on the cake. We will be back and if this house is available, we will call it home once more. I promise you will not be disappointed. We have stayed in many vacation homes and this is one of the cleanest and neatest layouts we have had."
