About Andrew Churchill

I am a registered architect and this is my dream home. Thanks for considering Villa Driftwood! Andrew Churchill, AIA Indiana Registered Architect #8600327 Florida Registered Architect #AR0016177

Andrew Churchill purchased this villa in 2009

Why Andrew Churchill chose Yacht Club

Ft Myers is far enough south that warm weather is pretty reliable. My brother lives on Sanibel (about 30 minutes away), so I was familiar with the area. After many months of searching, I found my perfect vacation home. As an architect, I recognized both a great home and an ideal location. I enjoy vacationing here with my 19 & 21 year old sons and look forward to retiring here someday. My brother, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, owns the only horse farm on Sanibel (as far as I know), so I have family ties here. I don't rent any other houses, so all my attention is focused on making this 'home'.

What makes this villa unique

Walking to the beach!! Watching the sunset over the water!! Playing in the pool!! The privacy of 2 master bedrooms. Did I mention Walking to the Beach...!!!

Great stay in Cape Coral home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at the Villa Driftwood. The location is perfect... just a short walk to the beach and The Boat House (restaurant/bar on the beach). There is plenty of room in the 4-bedroom house. We would definitely stay here again.

Great relaxing getaway in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed Villa Driftwood. It was everything that was stated on VRBO. Great pool, great location, wonderful views of the canals & sunsets. There is a LOT of room in this house - excellent layout. Enjoyed eating outside every day and playing in the pool. The Boat House Tiki Bar and the Love Boat ice cream are great stops. Island shelling is close by and the beaches are white soft sand!! Would definitely return!!

Villa Driftwood

  • 5 of 5

We loved Villa Driftwood, it's absolutely perfect, inside and out! After renting many places over many years we agree that this has been the best. The house is very large which was nice when our family visited. The pool area was wonderful and we made good use of it, especially our grandchildren. Being able to launch our boat so close to the house was a bonus as was the dock, and it's close proximity to the gulf. There wasn't a time out that we didn't see dolphins, and got to visit several beaches only accessible by boat. The kids found hermit crabs, starfish, sea urchin which lived in the 'aquarium' they built in the sand. The shelling on Sanibel was fun too. We loved being in downtown Cape Coral, close to everything we needed i.e. restaurants, grocery stores, movies and shopping. The house is very well-equipped, very clean, functional and well taken care of. But, I must agree with Annette E about improving the couch in the the 'family' room, can't speak for the other living room - we didn't use it. I can't say enough about Villa Driftwood, I would recommend it highly and would love to go back. Dealing with Andrew was a dream, he made everything go very smoothly for us, and we thank him for this.

Super Villa , great location

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful place Villa Driftwood is huge ! We could have easily been 8 people instead of our family of four without getting the house overcrowded....

Good beds , kitchen well equipped , nice bathrooms - great !

The pool area is fantastic . As I´m the early bird of the family , I enjoyed the peace and wonderful light at sunrise every day with my fresh brewed coffee, watching birds and fish in the canal. We had wonderful barbecues using the grill ( huge , too ), went to the nearby boathouse to watch sundowns and enjoyed their good food.

Cape Coral, especially Villa Driftwood in the Yacht Club Area is quite close to everything - Sanibel, Fort Myers Beach, Tanger outlet or Miromar, all only half an hours drive away.

Only thing that could be improved are the sofas in the living rooms ( there are even TWO living rooms !! ) - far too soft to sit on for more than 10 minutes - but you don´t really need them anyway, having wonderful sun beds and chairs in the gorgeous pool area ... :-)

Andrew is very good to work with, answers mails / questions very fast and seems to take care very much of this wonderful house.

I highly recommend villa driftwood !

Owner's Response: Hello Annette, Glad you enjoyed your holiday! LIke mattresses, sofa firmness may be a matter of personal taste. However, the living room sofas which were showing signs of wear were replaced last month. Hopefully you will find those more to your liking. Please visit us again soon. Thank you. Andrew

Family- time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this spacious house! We enjoyed the big pool several times a day.The location is great, you can reach the tiny beach and the very nice boathouse (enjoying a cocktail watching the sunset with good live music)by foot.THere are many shops nearby,where you can do your daily shopping.Its easy ro drive to Sanibel,Fort Myers beach .We also enjoyed the dock-side,once watching dolphins in our canal.

We were a party of 7 between 14and 55 and had plenty of room inside and outside of the villa.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time and saw the dolphins. They like to chase fish to the end of the canal for feeding. A clarification on the Yacht Club public beach size. It is about 200 meters long. Although small compared to the ocean, we have found it comfortable for swimming, beach play and sunbathing. And as noted, it is about a 30 minute drive to Sanibel & Ft Myers beaches.

Car: recommended

Located in warm sunny Southwest Florida, Cape Coral is the Venice of Florida, featuring over 400 miles of canals. Cape Coral adjoins Redfish Cove at the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River and is only than 30 minutes by boat to the open waters of the Gulf.

The desireable Yacht Club area of Cape Coral is the birthplace of Cape Coral and is named for the pulic Yacht Club Municipal Park and Marina just a few hundred yards away.

If you are a boater, be sure to consider a few things in choosing your rental villa.

1. How long does it take to get to get out of the idle zone to open water? Some canals are 'landlocked' or you may need to spend an hour or two at idle speed to get to open water. Villa Driftwood is approximately 1/2 mile, (5-10 min).

2. Is it direct access (no bridges or locks) & deep enough? Villa Driftwood provides approximately 5' deep direct 'sailboat' access.

3. Is there a marina with support facilities nearby? The Yacht Club has a full marina and boat ramp.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, parasailing, shelling, wildlife viewing, spa, racquetball, basketball, mini golf, shuffleboard, hot air ballooning
