About Thorsten Stein

We are the Stein Family. We moved from Germany to Cape Coral in 2004. Since than we live in sunny Cape Coral with nearly 360 days of sunshine and life is much better waking up this way.

Thorsten Stein purchased this villa in 2006

Why Thorsten Stein chose Cape Coral

The property is very unique for a typical Florida home. The split-level house was originally build by a Canadian which build the home in a way which combines both worlds: A home from up-north and a kind of Island home. When we bought the house we completely renovated the home in 2006 we first rented it out permanently but decidedto change it into a Vacation Rental and updated it to modern European style home but kept the charm like island feeling with bright and friendly colors typically find in Italy.

The floor has the original oak hardwood floors which we restored to almost original. The front porch is something unique which invites you to sit outside and relax. It is fully screen in so you will not be bothered by any mosquitoes or other flying insects.

The pool with south-west direction offers all day sunshine and has the beautiful view of the lake.

We love this house and we know you will love it too.

Villa Sunshine made our holiday perfect..Inviting home with everything you need to relax.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the internet do not do this home justice. My wife walked in the door and she was immediately impressed by the cleanliness and how it was decorated. It feels like a Key West beach home. Bright, open and inviting with hardwood and tile floors plus an awesome fireplace that Thorsten designed himself. The front porch is screened in just like the pool so you can enjoy every outside area of the house. Open the doors and let the warm Florida breeze in. The pool deck was just redone and the heated pool is where we spent a lot of our time relaxing. I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this home over the holidays. The Steins are super nice people and go out of their way to make you feel at home. You won't be disappointed. We will be going back the first chance we get.

Comfortable and fun

The home was a perfect size for 3 couples. Loved the pool and fishing in the lake. A little disappointed that the pontoon was not running. Maybe next time!

lovely villa in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Thorsten was the perfect host. On hand when needed and just friendly the rest of the time. The villa was beautifully decorated with everything you could need. He even bought a kettle so we could have our cups of tea, thanks. Great location, peaceful but close to all amenities. All round a fab place to stay.

Cape Coral house

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house. The house is extremely comfortable with access to the canal. It was wonderful to go to the kitchen window every morning and look out on the peaceful canal with all of the birds and turtles. Sitting at the pool was so relaxing. Several nights, we made s'mores at the gas grill by the canal. It was a great neighborhood to walk our dog. There were many restaurants close by, and the river beach is minutes away. The owner is great and very accommodating. We will be back.
