Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

The property is in an idyllic location overlooking a lovely piece of the canal system and being close to the harbour area. The property itself has everything that we have come to expect from villas in Florida and is furnished to an above standard level in my opinion. When you add in the use of the boat which we really enjoyed despite being totally new to using a boat. What more can I say we had a great week.

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Our vacation at Villa Diana was all that we expected and more! Upon arriving, we were greeted by the Property Manager. She was extremely pleasant and very helpful! She showed us all around the property. The house was extremely clean and more than enough space for our family of 6. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were plenty of extra ammenities that made you feel right at home! Going out on the boat each day and then returning to take a swim was the highlight of the trip! We truly did not want to leave!

Beautiful setting, Clean home, Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Contacted the owners through email. Expect a 1 to 2 day response time which was consistent. Everything on the up and up. No surprises, exactly as explained in the course of our emails. Arrived early evening to a very clean home in a quiet neighborhood in a prime location. Roads easy to navigate, restaurants galore. Easy to get to Sanibel, 20 minutes, Downtown Fort Myers, 25 minutes or all the shops in the area. A lot of mom and pop places to visit. Next morning we met with the property manager. We received a full explanation of the property and the boat. Awoke to a beautiful view for our breakfast outdoors in the pool area. The pool was clean and maintained weekly like clock work. Water was warm and refreshing. Great location for walks. Head over to Cape Harbour Marina for your coffee.If boating, it is exactly 35 minutes to the lock at 1300 RPM. Add another 10 minutes to the river and the miserable mile. All together, expect a little more than an hour to open water of the gulf. Seems like a lot however we equally enjoyed the time in the canals looking at houses, so the time doesn't seem that bad. Boat ran good except it has a small (20 gallon) fuel tank. Important to monitor while enjoying the great boating. Back to the house. Rooms were clean and everything is like new. Bed in master bedroom very comfortable. I guess if we had to pick any bad items it would be a limited selection on the television, however DVR player available and the ants in kitchen area. Not to be alarmed, it is very common in south Florida. We just made sure all items put in refrigerator or sealed. Other than that our experience with this rental was spectacular.

Thanks to Ron, Christa and Barbara for a wonderful vacation experience!!!

Great SW Cape Coral

  • 1 of 5

The house is in SW Cape Coral. In my opinion the nicest area, however, the house by use of the canal takes 45 minutes to get to the river by going through the lock. Then once you are at the river, you have to go through the miserable mile, which is another 20 minutes of idle. When we arrived on the 21st of December. We were notified the the pool heater was broke. It was not fixed until the 26 of December. We got to use the pool for one day. I emailed the owner to ask what he could do the alleviate the problem. He never even responded. Overall, the house was clean. Furniture was nice. House was well stocked. Its very unfortunate the pool heater broke. My kids were heart broken to only be able to use the pool for one day.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our 5 week stay at this property. Location of the house by the canal and proximity to Cape Harbour is great. Publix is also just a 5 drive away. Having access to a boat was for us an extra plus. We enjoyed almost daily short trips to the restaurants at Cape Harbour as well as longer trips to Sanibel and Captiva, etc. There are plenty of water-front restaurants that provide courtesy docking in the surrounding areas.

The house is well equipped and nicely renovated.The heated pool, by heat exchanger (and solar panels, that unfortunately did not work when we were there), was also nice.

The owners live in Holland and the were easy and friendly to deal with although response from them, we experienced, was a little slow at times. Local management is provided and was very friendly and always ready to help or answer any question or concern.

Very nice villa in good location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this nicely located, well equipped and maintained villa. The villa is in a very good and clean condition and contained everything which was required for our stay. With two chidren and two adults we had more than sufficient space and also the pool was large enough. There are super markets and restaurants in the Cape Harbour area within less than 5 minutes driving distance.

It takes about 20 minutes to get to open water and we enjoyed exyensive trips by boat to explore beautiful beaches and the impressive marine wildlife.

Great location for a very relaxing vacation which we would definitely visit again.

Cape Coral, Florida is a tropical paradise with more than 400 miles of canals to explore and enjoy. Our home is in a Million dollar neighborhood located close to Cape Harbour where are nice shops and restaurants. However, most of our guests prefer to enjoy the boat rental that is included with our Cape Coral home for rent and use it to visit boater's only beaches and destinations. There are also many area restaurants offering dockage for diners arriving by boat. There is really no better way to experience all that south west Florida has to offer than with a boat rental. We provide area maps, charts and an on-the-water dining guide for our guests' exclusive use during their stay. ! While many Cape Coral vacation rentals offer canal access, Bayside provides convenience and economy by including your boat rental with this beautiful home for rent.
