Beautiful home. Beautifully decorated with designer furnishings. The best equipped house, especially the kitchen, I have ever experienced in a rental home. Had everything we needed!! All modern appliances. Has digital televisions throughout with all modern electronic devices, WiFi, computer & printer, and the latest technology for the TV remotes and programming. Xfinity for cable TV. Speaker system for TV and sound--inside and outside the house/pool/lanai area is wonderful! Garage door opener. A safe for your valuables. The yard and landscaping are plush and lovely. Pool and hot tub are great! Luxurious master bath. Furniture is comfortable. The mattresses are rather firm/stiff but we were able to sleep fine. The drinking water tastes great--has a professional filtration system.

The only issues we encountered were very minor: garbage disposal did not work---but we declined Tina's offer to send a repairman;

the large Kitchen Aid outdoor bbq grill had 4 burner/tubes but only one would light so our outdoor grilling was limited, the propane tank was almost empty/the spare was empty; the A/C unit seems inadequate for this large home, (we were there in July), it took all night for the house to cool to a more comfortable temperature, the house would heat up due to the hot Florida weather and would stay +78 degrees F during most of the day no matter the thermostat setting, once the sun was down it would eventually cool down during the night. There are ceilings fans that helped and the stone/tiles floors that feel cool all the time, and of course the delightful pool!

Thomas & Tina are very nice, helpful, and accommodating! I would stay here again! The location is centrally located--not far to grocery stores, other shopping, beaches, restaurants. Our two small dogs had fun running and playing in the enclosed backyard and quickly learned to avoid the canal wall. There is no fencing or guard rails along the canal wall so beware if you have small children (or pet) that might fall over the edge into the canal. The canal is a nice nature setting with numerous species of birds. I am a bird watcher and absolutely loved it!

We stayed a full week and hated to leave this lovely home and area!

Very nice home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the house. The furniture was very comfortable . We fixed a lot of our meals there and found everything we needed to fix them Tina and Thomas were great to work with . We liked it so much we are returning next year.

Beatiful luxurious home

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, luxurious house with every amenity you could ever need. The area is quiet and safe. There are several Publix stores very nearby along with Target, Kohls and Walmart. However, if you want to do more than sit by the pool and jacuzzi, there isn't a lot in Cape Coral and driving to Fort Myers for larger shops and the mall is necessary. The nearest Gulf beach (Fort Myers Beach) is a 30 minute drive away but the water is not very clean and parking is limited. Sanibel Island costs $6 in toll fees and then $4 per hour to park—in my opinion not worth it. The house itself is truly gorgeous but for things to do, great location and beautiful beaches then Siesta Key/Sarasota is unbeatable.

Traumhafte Villa

  • 5 of 5

Bei der Buchung hatten wir nicht damit gerechnet.

Wir wohnten über zwei Wochen in einem Haus, das mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail perfekt eingerichtet ist. Es fehlt wirklich nichts. Vom Multimediacenter bis zum kleinsten Küchengerät-alles vorhanden-. Der schöne Pool lädt zum Entspannen ein, und obwohl der September als regenreichster Monat angegeben ist, konnten wir jeden Tag auf der schönen Terrasse mit Blick auf den Pool unsere Mahlzeiten einnehmen und gemütlich zusammensitzen.

Zudem bietet der Standort des Hauses in Cape Coral die Möglichkeit Ausflüge in die Umgebung zu unternehmen, um danach wieder in ein schönes "zuhause" zurückzukommen. Somit ist ein guter Mix aus Erkundung und Entspannung möglich.

Das Haus erfüllt alle Wünsche an gehobenen Wohnkomfort. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!!!

Super entspannter Urlaub und nette Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im November 2017 eine Woche in der Villa. Der Kontakt zu den Vermietern war sehr freundlich und immer hilfsbereit.

Wir wurden mit vielen Informationen rund um Cape Coral versorgt und konnten jederzeit bei Fragen auf die Vermieter zukommen.

Die Villa selbst war sehr gepflegt und sauber.

Alles zusammen war es eine gelungene Zeit. Vielen Dank noch einmal.

Alles perfekt, top Eindruck, sehr hochwertige Ausstattung.

  • 5 of 5

Tolles Haus in extrem ruhiger Lage. Pine Island als auch Fort Meyers sind sehr schnell erreichbar. Sanibel Island lädt auch zu einem Ausflug mit Muschelsuche ein. Die Einrichtung ist sehr geschmackvoll und die Küche lässt keine Wünsche offen.

Pool und Whirlpool, ebenso wie die gesamte Aussenanlage sind in einem top Zustand und sehr gepflegt.
