Unique Standards - Safety: The Caribbean Island is unique as it is custom built according to our wishes and high demands. It is designed to customers' requests and built according to the latest hurricane standards for your safety. The house is launched for vacation rentals in January 2008. On request we supply you with another website with plenty of pictures of this beautiful home.

Boaters will love the short only 13 minute ride to the river. Of course we have a boat dock on which you also can relax in the sun. You can dolphins, manatees regularly. If you like to tackle you will also like the boat dock that protects you a little bit from the wind. We rent boats, the handover can take place at this premises. We work since 2008 with Cape Escape Boat Rental. You get a contract from us. The boats are insured, which is confirmed in the contracts. Please ask for details.

To get to the Caribbean Island is quite easy. The easiest way is to book a flight to Southwest Florida International Airport, Fort Myers, which is loacated just 30 minutes from the house. You can pick up your rental car directly in the aiport! There is no shuttle neccessary any more! From Miami International the ride is about 2:30 h and from Orlando International 3:20 h.

We personally selected premium furniture, blending colours and design to reflect our Caribbean and Mediterranean influences. The loving 'fine tuning' and luxurious and extensive furnishings give this residence an exclusive and unique charisma. All this made our wish of getting our own 'island' come true. Enjoy the life of Dolce Vita in and on our Caribbean Island! - By the way: Not only hobby cooks will love the excellent kitchen with its stunning granite counter tops and the perfect range of equipment including cooking pots from the world famous German market leader Fissler.

Superb Property, Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I holiday in Florida every year and prefer to stay in a different villa each year.

The Caribbean Island looks wonderful on the website and lives up to the description.

The villa was spotless and had all of the amenities you could need.

The local manager was great. We met her on a previous property we rented and she is very friendly and efficient.

I could not believe how thorough the owners had been, they thought of everything and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.

The villa is in a wonderful location and although has a property either side, it is private and quiet.

We were able to heat the pool and spa to whatever temperature we wanted and there were lots of pool toys in the outside pool storage.

This was the 8th time we have stayed in Florida and this house was the best we have stayed in for location, facilities and care provided by the owners.

We like staying in a different villa each visit but I think that we will have difficulty in finding another villa as nice as this. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone.

Beautiful home and location.

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this vacation home. The house had everything we needed. The interior finishes were wonderful. The pool and hot tub were amazing and we saw dolphins swimming in the channel. We would definitely like to return in the near future.

Meticulously kept, has every amenity to ask for!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t have asked for a better vacation home away from home! It certainly did feel like home as the owners provided every amenity you could ask for in this wonderfully kept, thoughtfully decorated, and luxuriously furnished property. Great location with the southern exposure every sun-worshiper is looking for. The listing description doesn’t quite do it justice! You need to see it in person to appreciate the attention to detail and the top-notch furnishings in every corner of this home. We particularly liked the pool deck with a waterfall from the spa into the infinity pool, and lanai area with plenty of lounge options for our kids to make lasting memories of our Florida vacation! The house was spotless on our arrival, the refrigerator was stocked with the basics, a large bowl of fruit welcomed us in the kitchen, and both the owners and agent were responsive and made sure our needs were quickly addressed. All you’d have to bring with you is your toothbrush and your bathing suit as everything you could ask for is provided. We highly recommend this property to anyone who’s looking for a relaxing, luxurious getaway to Cape Coral! - The Enos & Petrescu Families

Florida Ferien in Cape Coral

  • 5 of 5

Wir, drei Erwachsene, ein Teenager und ein 6 jähriges Mädchen verbrachten zwei wunderbare Wochen in diesem perfekten Ferienhaus. Die Beschreibung des Hauses sowie die vorhergehenden Bewertungen treffen voll zu. Wir hatten noch nie ein so perfekt eingerichtetes, gut gelegenes und gepflegtes Miethaus. Speziell erwähnen möchten wir das absolute Highlight der Villa; die Terrasse sowie den Pool. Aus unserer Sicht ist das kaum mehr zu überbieten. Da der Rubicon Kanal vor dem Haus ziemlich breit ist, hat man gegen vorne richtig viel "Luft" was die Grosszügigkeit der Anlage nochmals verstärkt. Die Hauseinführung der Verwaltung war perfekt und Sigrid versorgte uns zusätzlich mit vielen Tips in und um Cape Coral.

Wir hatten für eine Woche ein Boot gemietet, welches am hauseigenen Steg festgemacht werden konnte. Vom Steg aus erreichten wir den River in ca. 20 min. Danach geht es relativ zügig Richtung Meer. Die ersten Strände von Fort Meyers sind in ca. einer Stunde zu erreichen. Allerdings sollte man den Weg als Ziel betrachten und die Fahrt durch die Kanäle sowie Cape Coral und danach die Landschaft vom Caloosahatchee River aus geniessen. Mit etwas Glück sieht man unterwegs bei jeder Fahrt Manatees und Delphine. Aus unserer Sicht eine perfekte Ergänzung zum Haus.

Fazit: Besser geht es kaum mehr. Wir können diese Villa von Heidi und Jürgen nur bestens empfehlen.

What we expected - and then some

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 weeks and loved every moment. The house was just as described and the pool was just big enough for my fitness swims as well as for kids play. The dock was great for sunbathing and fishing (caught enough to eat many days). The floorplan allows for good privacy for 2 families and sleeps 6 very comfortably. The guestbook was very helpful. The great beaches of Sanibel Island and Lovers Key

were nearby, wonderful for long walks and beachside play. Loved the Mad Hatter restaurant on Sanibel Island (many good restaurants there).In addition to local sights, don´t miss Naples, Sarasota and the Dali museum in StPete if you have the time.

Florida, the Sunshine State, is famous for sunshine and family-friendly attractions as there is Walt Disney World, Kennedy Space Centre, Busch Gardens, Sea World and Universal Studios. There is more to it than just Flipper, Shamu and rollercoasters in the theme parks. Cape Coral's tropical waterfront wonderland glimmers with 400 miles (approx. 650 km) of fresh and salt water canals and is the best place to relax, to do sports or to learn about 'The Real Florida'. Cape Coral, cradled between Caloosahatchee River and the Gulf of Mexico, sheltered by a string of Florida’s barrier islands and well known as a boater's and golfer's paradise. You will find relaxation and unique attractions for your perfect vacation in your tropical back yard: endless beaches and untouched nature. Unique islands, like the “Ten Thousand Islands“, Sanibel and Captiva Island with excellent shelling beaches, stretch along the Gulf Coast directly in front of Cape Coral.

Other Activities: Boating, Canoeing, Swimming, Running

Golf: Cape Coral is a Golfers' Paradise. The Cape Coral area offers some of the best golf in the area. You find top rated championship courses which provide players of all skill levels with a pleasurable and challenging round of golf and also more relaxed 'executive' courses.
