Comfortable home in a great, centralized location! Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The kids were amazed with the house and the canal. They swam every single day in the pool. We caught some catfish and a mangrove snapper in the canal which made the kids ecstatic. We were in such a great location to be able to visit multiple areas we wanted to see. Overall, our best vacation to date! We have already been asked multiple times for your rental information by our friends and family. We will gladly refer them to your place knowing they will have a great visit. We had absolutely no issues with the home. The only thing that occurred was the back door handle came loose due to a screw being loose, but my husband was able to fix it easily with the items in the tool drawer in the kitchen. My only regret is that I was only able to use the big bathtub once due to trying to pack in all the activities we planned for the week!

We had a wonderful week!

  • 4 of 5

My family of 5 including 3 kids from 9 to 16, my niece and my parents (8 people altogether) had a great time!

The house was very comfortable and easily slept 8. The heated pool was a big hit for the kids. In the mornings and evenings when it wasn't too hot we enjoyed leaving the large glass doors open to the lanai creating a wide open space from the living room to the pool.

We enjoyed taking the boat out fishing on the river and further out toward Sanibel. We caught lots of fish (including 2 stingrays and an eel) and saw several dolphins and 2 manatees.

Brad and Nadia were very friendly and quick to assist with anything we needed.

Thanks!

Great, relaxing family gathering home

  • 4 of 5

After reading the previous tenant's review, we felt that we should also submit our thoughts on the Cape Coral property. We loved the location of this house. We were able to walk to theTiki Hut, Winn Dixie, Culvers, and many other stores. We were a short drive by boat or car to the Boat House. We enjoyed boat rides on the canal and on the river, watching the sunset from the boat and from the sitting area on the canal and saw dolphins one evening! We were able to sleep 8 of our extended family comfortably, and had had room for everyone to hang out and relax with the two indoor sitting areas and the covered and screened in pool area (which was great when it rained). The kitchen had everything you need. Was the house perfect? No, it does need some updating (though much has been done since the photos were taken). The twin room slider does not close, the kitchen rod did fall, the pool was cool and we couldn't make some lights work in it, and there is a weird pipe coming out of the pool deck by the pool ladder. The hardest thing for us was the depressed (step-down) dining area. Everyone tripped going through that room. We went and bought blue painters tape (left the roll in the kitchen drawer by the stove) and put two strips down on all the steps, problem solved. They also could use more recycle bins. Basically, this wasn't a five star hotel but it was a perfect home to spend a relaxing week on vacation. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to others.

VACATION FROM HELL + extra charge for visitors + excessive hydro rate

  • 1 of 5

This home & property is indeed large and spacious. It's surrounded by beautiful million dollar mansions and ideally situated at bottom of a quiet court . As they say in real estate "Location is everything !" and in this category only can I give it a 5-Star rating. This older home was neglected in regular maintenance and landscaping. The updated renovations in 2 bathrooms is true. Kitchen cabinets water stained & musty. Photos seen on the website have not been updated in a long time. The Boat photo shown is different from Rental Agreement. A boat is not "Available" but Mandatory when renting home between December & March. An older pontoon boat & trailer sat in the driveway, in front of the garage door, for the 11 days of our Contract. In 3 days, we discovered very dirty front door, broken window, patio door that wouldn't stay closed, jamming pocket door, gaping hole & broken patio stone, well overdue yard maintenance, rusty parts in side yard, pool heater barely working, kitchen curtain rod kept falling down, air fresheners everywhere, torn leather sofas, dirty half-broken BBQ, broken dock light, torn patio chairs, metal hazards, and boat lift rarely working because boat was too heavy. Nadia became very accusatory when we tried to bring a few of these things to her attention. Brad refused to come & look indoors. We spent at least 6 hrs and $40 on cleaning supplies to remove the layer of dust on mostly everything, including bicycles in the garage - one with flat tire. We arrived on a Tuesday evening and left this home Friday morning because we just couldn't endure staying another minute when we realized a bathroom sink and kitchen sink were leaking. During our brief stay, Nadia resorted to calling my wife a liar and also accused us of stealing towels, being scammers, and her final insult was "disgusting Canadians"! We are senior couple owning 3 homes in our married life. We are extremely respectful of others' property and actually moonlight as House/Pet Sitters, Property Managers, & Landscapers heading into our semi-retirement. I've run my own small business for 20+ years and it's been successful because I value my good customers & provide excellent customer service at any cost. We fully expect Nadia to refute everything said to avoid refunding ANY of our hard-earned money for the 8 days we refused to stay. We left this home PERFECTLY spring-cleaned & fulfilled ALL obligations until Contract ended. No "alternative facts" here, just plain Truth.

Owner's Response: Really can’t believe this, there is something to be said for a review that is ‘anonymous’. Doug and Nancy rented this home for 10 days; everything was “great”, “lovely home” and beautiful location as said in an email from them! We saw them on a couple of occasions to show them the boat and a question with the BBQ. They were polite and everything was great! Then on day 4 of their rental, all of a sudden they no longer can stay at the house, it is too dirty! I commented to Nancy and Doug if this was the case, I wish they would have said something when they arrived or the day later so we could have called the cleaner and cleaned to her satisfaction. The floors are white tile, dirt would have been evident immediately. They requested all their money back, I explained we could not do this as we held the home for them. They had friends staying around the corner and by accident the friend let it slip that the “Doug had to return to Canada for work” and she did not want to stay by herself in the large home. Now that explained everything but that is not fair at all! I again explained to them that because Doug had to go home did not mean they can get their money back; this was not acceptable to Doug or Nancy. I can say till I am blue in the face that this review is false, never do I speak to customers like that (I am Canadian myself so that “Canadian comment” that I supposedly said is really quite funny). Normally I do not bother my past guests with “REVIEW” requests as I leave it up to their discretion, but this time I will ask the guests prior to Doug and Nancy arriving as well as after for their reviews so I can let the home speak for itself. I do find it shameful people writing false reviews as we do work very hard to keep the home beautiful and our guests happy!!

Great Family Fun! Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this lovely property in December 2016 and we had a great time. The area is fantastic and the home was very nice, all the rooms were very clean and it had just be renovated so everything is new and modern. It was more than we expected since the pictures of the renovations have not been posted yet! Large house that fit our family very well. The owners are extremely nice and pleasant to deal with, they respond quickly to all our questions. Most of all they are fair! We rented the boat and a day prior to leaving we unfortunately damaged the propeller. We know that they lost a few days of rental and we were nervous what the charge would be to fix but when they called us a few days later, we were so happy! The bill was less than what we pay here to replace the propeller, they gave us their discount received. very honest people. We will definitely be coming back next year, thank you.

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing in Cape Coral and the surrounding area for the past several years. We love to escape the weather of the north for the warm Florida weather and beautiful beaches. We decided on renting this house because it had a boat and great access to the river where we spent everyday we could on the water fishing and island hopping. We traveled by boat to Sanibel and Captiva and enjoyed the gulf side of those islands with beautiful blue waters and great shells. The yacht club is just a few minutes away with very easy access for refueling the boat, a beach area good for kids and a good restaurant. We had plenty of room with the three bedrooms (5 of us) and seating for dinner both inside and outside on the patio. The patio is good for lounging by the pool and enjoying the view of palm trees. The kitchen has a good supply of cooking/bakeware. There are plenty of grocery stores, restaurants and shops nearby so if you don't want to leave the Cape Coral area, you don't have to. One last note, we were lucky enough to see a dolphin in the canal from the boat dock!
