About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, max. 6 persons on 200 m² with a gorgeous pool area

Holidays at Villa Franca means vacation from the first day. You enter the house through the spacious entrance area to the lounge and right here you will notice how this property was lovingly equipped by the owners with an eye for details. There a 2 queen size beds in the master bedroom, a private bathroom, dressing room and WC. 2 further bedrooms offer space for 2 people each. They share a bathroom with WC. Additionally, there is a guest WC.

There is a fully equipped kitchen including fridge with ice maker, cooker, dishwasher, coffee machine, microwave, all kitchen helpers and a breakfast bar which is perfect for having a cocktail while enjoying the views of the pool and both of the boating canals. All bedrooms are fully equipped including flat screen TVs, in the living room an extra large one. Spacious pool area with whirlpool, sun loungers and American barbecue, tropical garden with boat lift and tiki.

The gem is shining again!: Villa Franca, ex Villa Barbara, was completely renovated inside and outside in February/March 2011. The result is amazing! The villa is shining new and does not only offer you an impressive sight when you arrive, but is also sparkling with new inner values, such as flat screen TVs in living and bedrooms, new, large stainless steel kitchen applicances and much more.

There is also entertainment!: Aside from the spacious pool and whirlpool area as well as the mandatory big screen TV, there a plenty of further amenities for Villa Franca’s guests, making your stay here amusing. These are the small but distinct differences between a privately owned holiday home and the often impersonal houses of large property owners.

Of course, our guests can use our 4 bicycles – two for adults and two for children – and play table tennis in the driveway or in the large double garage.

Of course, there is a large selection of holiday literature in German, from crime stories to children’s books.

There are pool toys in the pool area as well as inflatables and kick-boards for young and old water babies.

The whole package for your vacations in Florida!

Perfectly equipped!

All you have to do is engage in the relaxed life in the sunny paradise of south west Florida. The house and the large corner property provide plenty of space so you can have tranquil hours despite full occupancy. The electric boat lift at the garden offers you the occasion to land your rental boat safely directly at the house, reaching the river in only a few 100 metres and starting off to the nicest beaches at the Gulf of Mexico, without driving long through canals or even water gates, as you would have to from many other houses. Of course, we are happy to help you rent a boat as you wish.

We keep coming back!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Villa Franca. We have already rented for 6 weeks again next year. The location is perfect and the house is lovely. We brought our boat this year and the fact that access to the gulf is so close makes this location all the better. There was a problem with the pool heater when we arrived and was fixed immediately. The corner lot makes this location very quiet and peaceful. You will love it here!!

Wir verbrachten eine sehr angenehme und erholsame Zeit in der Villa Franca. Von der ersten Anfrage bis zur "Nachbetreuung" fühlten wir uns stets sehr gut betreut und verständnisvoll umsorgt. Die Vermieter und die Betreuung vor Ort waren jederzeit hilfsbereit und standen für alle anstehenden Fragen zur Verfügung.

Das Haus selbst ist vollständig und umfassend ausgestattet, alle notwendigen und angenehmen Dinge sind vorhanden.

Nicht zu vergessen ist auch die Ausstattung für Kleinkinder (Babyfence) - dies sichert auch eine unbeschwerte Zeit am Pool ohne Bedenken bei einem 2-jährigen.

Eine Empfehlung - vielleicht klappt es ja nächstes Jahr wieder:-)))

Top Urlaubsadresse!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren als Familie (5 Personen) zwei Wochen in diesem schönen Haus zu Gast. Ein sehr gepflegtes Anwesen, ruhig gelegen, mit viel Platz und alle Annehmlichkeiten die man sich wünscht. Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen und können diese Adresse allen Sonnenfreunden nur empfehlen. Insbesondere der freundliche Kontakt mit dem Vermieter und dessen Empfehlungen haben unseren Urlaub zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis werden lassen.

Erneut ein traumhafter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind Wiederholungstäter - in der Villa Franca konnten wir auch dieses Mal unseren Urlaub vom ersten Tag an genießen. Die Eigentümer kümmern sich liebevoll um das Haus, welches keine Wünsche offen lässt - dieses Mal wurden wir mit einer komplett renovierten Küche überrascht! Tischtennisplatte, Fahrräder und der Pool wurden von uns wie immer ausgiebig genutzt. Außerdem haben wir uns für drei Tage ein Boot gemietet - das Haus bietet aufgrund seiner Lage die perfekte Möglichkeit, zügig auf den Golf hinaus zu fahren, ohne erst noch lange Fahrten durch die Kanäle Cape Corals machen zu müssen. Empfehlenswert ist auch, mit den Rädern abends die lokalen Restaurants anzufahren, in denen man bei Live-Musik und leckeren Snacks gemeinsam mit den "Locals" ein kühles Bier genießen kann.

Sommerferien 2015

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist perfekt für einen Familienurlaub. Die Villa wurde mit sehr viel Liebe eingerichtet, auch die kleinen Details wurden beachtet. Nicht nur TV-Gerät oder Waschmaschine/Trockner sind vorhanden sondern auch Steckdosenadapter oder ein freies WLAN.

Auch die Lage der Villa ist sehr gut, direkt am Wasser mit einer Sackgasse als Zugangsstraße und doch ist man in weniger als 10 Minuten an der Hauptstraße in Cape Coral.

Die Vermieter haben uns vor, während und nach dem Urlaub mit Emails begleitet und standen bei Fragen, Änderungswünschen jederzeit zur Seite.

Wir sind mit dem Feriendomizil absolut zufrieden und können Sie nur weiterempfehlen.

Amazing beaches of Sanibel Island/Fort Myers Beach
Car: recommended

Villa Franca is splendidly located on an extra large corner property right on the canal. Unlike many other houses on the canals of the Venice of Florida, it is only a few hundred metres, that is, a couple of minutes by boat, to the river and then you have free access to the world renowned beaches of Cape Coral. There is no water gate to slow down your fast access to the golf.

The location in the historic part of the town, near the popular marina, also has the advantage that you can easily reach all convenience stores, Fort Myers via the bridge, or start off to Sanibel Island beach or one of the countless golf courses nearby. The house is quietly located at the end of a dead end with no transit.

The villa’s ideal, almost north-facing position allows you to make use of the pool area where it does not get too hot and which offers shady spots. Thanks the huge pool area and the large garden, you will always find a place in the sun, even in Florida’s 'winter'.

Other Activities: Boating, relaxing
