Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Good points:

We liked how close it was to a grocery store and Super Walmart.

Located in a nice, quiet area with minimal traffic.

Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed.

Enjoyed using the bicycles and fishing gear provided.

We took day trips to Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island, since they were close by and easy to get to.

Loved watching the fish jump in the lake, it was our daily entertainment.

Lots of room for our whole family.

Outdoor eating by the pool was great, we could watch kids swim while we sat at table.

Volker came over the morning after we got there and answered any questions we had. He was very nice and attentive to our questions.

Overall, house was very nice and clean, only a couple issues. (see not so good points)

Not so good points:

Several of the screens were missing in the pool area (thanks to Hurricane Irma) and we got a lot of bug bites, even after bug spray.

Shower head in master bath was broken and a couple cabinet doors in kitchen also.

Got charged $50 grill cleaning fee, even though we cleaned grill to the condition it was in when we arrived.

Did not realize we would be charged for electricity on top of rental fee. ($63 for 6 days).

Overall, a very nice house and a great vacation for our whole family. Would stay here again!

The house was spectacular, absolutely beautiful, right on the water with great views. HOWEVER......

  • 3 of 5

The house is everything pictured, wonderful views, nice furnishings. However, from the initial booking to the final billing, it was nothing but a hassle. I booked through HomeAway - a month later a charge from Ireland showed up on my credit card statement. Not recognizing the charge I tried to google the issuer but nothing came up, and there was no phone number to verify who it came from. I turned it in as fraud and cancelled my credit card. Consequently, it turns out it was for the house, the owner/property manager (never could figure out who did what) contacted me and after 2 weeks of hassling VRBO, the bank and the owner, it was resolved. Once that was settled I was sent a contract to sign - the attachment wouldn't open. So the management company sent me a contract to sign IN GERMAN. Obviously, I didn't sign it and it took another week for them to figure out how to get it to me in English.

The main reason we booked the house was because we wanted to be on the water with a boat. We rented the owners boat and a few days prior to arrival they notified us that it might not be available due to being in for repairs. At the airport, on our way to the house, we were told it wasn't available. We were offered no substitute, no remedy and no recourse. I understand things happen, but we were literally left out to dry. I complained and asked them to find us something, which they did. We've rented many vacation houses and they've always been stocked with the basic essentials. This house, which was a lot more expensive then we've paid in the past, came with absolutely no supplies -- a few rolls of toilet paper that I'm sure had been left by the previous guest, no garbage bags, paper towels, dish soap, bath soap, napkins, etc. We assumed, based on past experiences, that these simple essentials would be included. It would of been helpful to have known in advance that we would need to stock the house on our own. You are also charged for utilities, (never heard of that before). You're given a credit, however, the check out sheet that I signed upon arrival had this in fine print, IN GERMAN, and it turns out that it's a credit per week, not total, so we were charged additionally for using the lights, dishwasher, etc. (& we were gone all day, every day). Also, the house is for sale - we had booked this 6 months ago and wonder what would happen if it had been sold. I would recommend the house, as it is beautiful, but buyer beware of all the extra add-ons

Owner's Response: Carmela, thank you for your review. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Homeaway is an international company and all homes are advertised on international sides - worldwide. They are working with a company in Ireland to process payments - something out of our control. Once you contacted us about the charges we explained this to you, but you cancelled it anyway. The attachments we send are pdf forms. You need Adobe Reader to open them. The rental agreement itself is in german AND english. The first sentence on it clearly states in bold letters "Please scroll down for english version" Sorry, that you did not see that. The boat broke down a few days prior to your arrival and I immediately tried to contact you. Could not get hold of you over the phone - so I sent an email and offered my help to find another boat. I did not get a response from you for days. Sorry that you did not read my email prior to getting to the airport. All of our homes are also stocked with the basic essentials. It is just not true, that the house did come with absolutely no supplies. We supply every house with the basics, but do not supply shampoo and soap. This is not a hotel - it is a self catering vacation rental. Sorry for our mistake on the check-in sheet. Yes - there were 2 words ( ! ) in german - the rest was in english and self explaining. I corrected that for future guests. Thank you for bringing that to my attention. The listing clearly states that you do get a credit of $50/week for electricity. This is an above average credit. Anything above your allowance is charged at local rates. In my opinion a just normal approach - you use electricity - you pay electricity - just like at home. You are telling future guests to beware of the extra add-ons. The only extra add-on is electricity IF usage is above $50/week Thanks again and Merry Christmas Volker and Barbara

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

When we opened the door on arrival I turned to my husband and said "it's just like I hoped it would be!" We needed a rejuvenation of spirit and that's what we got. Stopped at Publix on the way in to get food for the week and never left the house after. Rolled out of bed in the morning to the pool and stayed there til dark. Sun all day which I like. But there's a nice big table and comfy chairs under cover where my husband hung out in the shade. Better than any hotel or resort. Pool area is very private. We could hear neighbors on either side occasionally but the view on either side is blocked by hedges. Night time is quiet. The view of the water is beautiful and we enjoyed watching the fish jump at night as the sun set. Very clean house. And plenty of towels for lounging at the pool. We enjoyed it so much we were able to extend our stay for 3 days. Going back for sure! Thanks to the owners for a wonderful vacation!!

Wonderful holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful holiday home, the best we have stayed in over 20 years of visiting many US states. The location is ideal, less than 2 hours from Tampa International, minutes by car from Publix and Walmart, easy access to Fort Myers, close to all the good chain restaurants and others, lots of local attractions within a one hour drive. The location on the canal is also wonderful, with the infinity pool. Sitting poolside and watching the mullet jump was so relaxing; we also saw the local apparently friendly? alligator in the distance and took some video. Definitely worth a return visit.

This was our second stay at Villa Estelle for a three week family vacation. A new

property management team of Heike and Reinhard have had a real positive

impact on the villa ,New kitchen appliances,New beach chairs and umbrellas.

The villa also had a extra fresh clean feeling. As i have said in my previous review

the villa is well located for sunshine all day long, Fantastic pool and dockside,

Close to all amenities in a quiet friendly area. If you are a beach lover the four

chairs and two umbrellas will save you $56 in beach rentals. we were very sad

to leave at the end of our vacation, But we left with many great memories and

we thankyou kindly Joachim for the chance to share your wondeful villa.
