"What a vacation!! We spent 2 weeks at Villa Driftwood, 1 with just my family & another family joined us for the 2nd week. We rented the house because of the pool and it certainly didn't disappoint. The screened in area was awesome as the large sliding doors were open every day, all day and we all pretty much spent the entire time in bathing suits. The closeness of the pool is especially great if you have children as there's no need to get them out if you have to make lunch or use the facilities. Everything is right there and they are in view at all times.
I'm a firm believer that no vacation is ever perfect. Inevitably something will go wrong or break. There's nothing you can do about it so just sit back contact the home owner and enjoy the rest of your day. We had a couple issues arise during our stay, I emailed the owner and the problem was fixed within 24 hours. Was comforting to know that you're not left in the dark.
As for the house... Its HUGE!!! Though its a bit dated you can tell that the owner is doing everything he can to fix the place up. Some areas need a coat of paint but the place is immaculate and overall we didn't have any major complaints. The new tinted sliding doors are great, the house stayed at 78 all day without the need for AC. The double garage is especially nice. The greatest addition was the Margaritaville Maker in the kitchen. We gave it a workout during our stay!!
Overall (and minor things aside) it was a successful vacation at Villa Driftwood and we would certainly love to return next year (Were it not booked already!)."

"This one tops the VRBO's we have stayed at! Coming from Minnesota, a state of 10,000 lakes, we were excited to find this VRBO that not only had a pool but a boat to use as well. Tom the owner was great to work with; very prompt in getting back to us with questions or concerns we had. The home was very comfortable (for 6) and well stocked. Our 8yr old granddaughter spent every minute she could in the warm, clean pool. Fishing gear was also supplied and our 17yr old grandson spent his share of hours fishing off the dock. The boating was fantastic! We all loved seeing the dolphins when in the boat or relaxing on the dock. This home is in great proximity of shopping, shelling, and wonderful eating establishments. None of us wanted to see the week end but all are in agreement that we will return!!"

"This was our fifth year renting a vacation home in Cape Coral. We love the area. It was the perfect, comfortable home with a lovely pool on a canal. Those of you with young children or grandchildren will appreciate the safety fence around the pool. Lori was such a friendly, responsive owner- one of the best we've ever encountered. She accommodated every request including arranging extra channels on the cable system (at our expense)- no small feat! As another reviewer said- Lori is spectacular! Our visitors all were pleased with the roominess of this home, as were we. We would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a location with lots of swimming, fishing, boating, parks, family activities and just plain relaxing!"

"Stayed at this home for the month of March 2015. The location was very convenient to restaurants, beaches, golf courses, grocery store and many attractions. We had record setting temperatures and really enjoyed having our own pool. We spent most of our time in the beautiful outdoor lanai area when we were home. Had my grandchildren over for a barbecue and they enjoyed the pool and fishing off the dock...even caught some fish! Since it was spring break time we did not want to go to Ft Myers Beach and fight the crowds so we went just a few miles and spent time at the Cape Coral Yacht Club. Beautiful beach and great restaurant at the yacht club. Wonderful place to watch the sun set. I would definitely recommend this to all my friends. Lovely home and had everything you needed...pots, pans, coffee maker, ice maker, towels, beach towels and floaties to use in the pool. Very nice neighborhood...quiet area, friendly neighbors, and felt very safe. Just loved it!!!"
