Approximately 400 miles (680 km) of water channels run through the city. An El Dorado for water sports fans. In Cape Coral, there are numerous boat hire companies, where motor boats of various sizes can be rented. So you can see the islands Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva reach or the many uninhabited islands or Cape Coral by exploring operating on its channels. Our property manager will assist you.

In high season it is a bit more expensive but still much cheaper than in Europe. The courts are not comparable with European places - lots of nature, old trees, water everywhere and usually lightning fast greens. These usually at least 4 different tees so that the courses are suitable for all levels. Handicap or proof Club are not required.

Clean, comfortable, and relaxing.

  • 4 of 5

We arrived late and were welcomed by cold water, coke, and a bottle of wine. The home book was filled with all sorts of options for beach, boating, fishing, dinning, and many other wonderful local options. We had a great time and because we really like the pool water warm, we did get our 86 degree pool water for evening swimming. The managing couple were great and very positive with any questions we had. Great experience and would recommend this property by going back next time we are in the area. *Lobster Lady Restaurant a d MUST! (please be aware there is an additional FOREIGN TRANSACTION fee ON BOTH THE RENTAL FEE AND DAMAGE FEE not openly noted for credit card charges. 3-9%. ). So WATCH out when budgeting your TRUE costs)

Perfekter Urlaub in der Villa Starfish "Wohlfühlfaktor 1"

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben sehr schöne Wochen in Cape Coral verbracht.

Von der Buchung bis zur Abreise wurden wir perfekt betreut von Heike und Reinhard. Sie sprechen perfekt Deutsch und Englisch.Haben gute Tipps für Ausflüge ,Einkaufen usw.

Da das Haus direkt am Kanal liegt und auch ein Bootsplatz vorhanden ist haben wir uns auch ein Boot gemietet. Es gibt nichts schöneres als am morgen aufzustehen, gemütlich auf der Terrasse zu Frühstücken, kurz in den Pool springen und dann einen schönen Tagesausflug mit dem Motorboot zu machen. Bei unserer ersten Ausfahrt sind wir bei wunderschönen Villen vorbeigefahren und konnten auch gleich bei Sanibel Island Delfine beim spielen beobachten. Einfach ein Traum.

Das Haus selber ist sehr schön eingerichtet ,sehr sauber, modern und gemütlich! Man fühlt sich bei der Ankunft gleich sehr sehr wohl, wirklich zum empfehlen.

Wir möchten uns nochmal für die gute Betreuung bedanken

und freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen.

Liebe Grüße aus Österreich

Martina & Andreas R.

Toller Urlaub im Sunshine State

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Starfish war ideal für eine entspannte Woche in Florida. Wir haben im Lauf der Jahre schon viele Orte in den USA gesehen. Cape Coral gehört mit zu den schönsten. Das Haus bietet alles, was das Herz begehrt, einen tollen Pool, Kanallage, tolle Zimmer und technische Ausstattung.

Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Amazing Vacation At Villa Starfish

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in the Cape Coral area was for 32 nights at Villa Starfish & it was absolutely perfect. From the minute we walked in, we knew we were "home". We had a delightful welcome from Reinhard & Heike, the property managers, which included a bottle of wine, a bowl of fresh fruit & in the frig we found some beer for my husband & some bottles of cold water. Also, when we arrived there was soft, soothing music playing in the background, so welcoming & we felt instantly relaxed! Villa Starfish is a clean, comfortable, updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in beautiful SW Cape Coral. It is well supplied with anything you could possible need during your stay. The pool deck is a large area with very good quality loungers for relaxing at the beautiful, heated pool. We enjoyed many days lounging by the pool with a good drink & a good book, it was fantastic! Reinhard & Heike, the property managers are the best!! They came to Villa Starfish the day after we arrived to give us information about the house & the pool. They also told us about several places to do some sightseeing & told us of several restaurants & beaches that they thought we would enjoy. Heike also has a complete, large notebook filled with tons of info on grocery stores, restaurants, beaches, shopping malls, etc. Very helpful, we used it a lot. Be sure to follow Heike on Facebook, at Sunny Dreams Home Services. She does a fantastic job of posting new & fun things to see & do in the area during your stay. We loved her posts, it was like Heike was our own personal concierge! We were so pleased, happy & comfortable at Villa Starfish that only 4 days into our stay, we knew we wanted to come back in 2016, so we booked again for next March. We want to thank the owners of Villa Starfish for sharing their beautiful home with us & we want to thank Reinhard & Heike for making sure our stay was so amazing. We are counting down until next year!

Deze prachtige woning heeft onze verwachtingen meer dan ingevuld. De foto's getoond op de website zijn zeer zker niet overdreven.

Het huis is gelegen op een zeer rustige locatie met achteraan prachtig uitzicht.

Een aanrader; we komen hier zeer zeker terug!

Een geweldige service!

This beautiful vila has more than filled in our expectations. The pictures displayed on the website are very surely no exaggeration.

The House is located in a very quiet location with beautiful view behind.

A must; We come here very definitely back!

The service as outstanding!
