Our guests are attended by our reliable and friendly local HOUSE SERVICE. They speak English, German and Italian. You will also receive a personal introduction to your holiday home so you can enjoy your holiday.

PARADISE NEST - THE HOUSE:

We have bought our family nest in July 2011 and made our longtime dream come true. After lots of work and remodeling we now call it PARADISE NEST and hope our guests will love it as well as we do.

The house is well above the standard in this price category and we chose high quality in furnishing and equipment. The beautiful beaches of Cape Coral Beach with the pier and romantic Sunset Celebrations and the new South Cape Beach on Bimini Basin are only minutes away from our nest and easily accessible by bicycle or on foot (0.8 miles.). Parking is free on these two beaches and there are also shaded children's playgrounds available.

We use our 'nest' as a family ourselves, and therefore took much care on comfort and design. Natural stone flooring in the living room and bathroom, high quality (suitable for allergy sufferers) carpeting in the bedrooms, high quality furniture, real wood fitted kitchen with full-height fridge-freezer and ice maker for cool drinks and cocktails, stainless steel appliances. In the living area, a 127 cm large flat screen with cableTV and PS 2/DVD is available for our guests. Large (125 cm and 81 cm) LCD TVs are also in the bedrooms, Netbook / WiFi, GPS etc.

The screened pool area will protect you from mosquitoes on warm summer evenings. Pool and terrace are facing south (all-day sun, covered patio with fans). The lanai is lined with elegant stone paving and a skin-friendly pool-bromine system is installed, heatable (electric) in winter. An electric grill is also here for enjoyable BBQs. POOL MEASURE: Depth 3 ft 11 in to 5 ft 2 in. Length approx. 18 ft , Width approx. 26 ft.

RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES: Your vacation home is safe and centrally located in one of the best residential districts of Cape Coral, the historical Yachtclub-area Caloosahatchee. The immediate vicinity of the marina, downtown and many restaurants and shopping centers will inspire you. In Paradise Nest you will find peace and relaxation, yet you are within the city with all its amenities and amusements. Romantic canals and bajous, broad palms and mature trees invite you to stroll along or having a picnic, or watching the many exotic animals here. For boat tours, we recommend a reliable rental just around the corner. After an introduction (only drivers license required) you can float along the waterways of the Caloosahatchee river or visit the carribean islands of dreams Sanibel, Captiva or Gasparilla Island. Usually you will be accompanied by dolphins in the ocean - just amazing! Very nice tennis courts can be found at Cape Coral Beach Marina as well as more than 30 golf courses.

TOURS AND SHOPPING: For extensive shopping trips, the nearby Edison Mall in Fort Myers is just the right place, as are the various Outlets. Here you will find Top-products, electronics and Designer clothes at sensational prices. For culture lovers there are great little theaters, jazz clubs, museums and much more. We will gladly give you details of this information. Worth a visit are the property of Thomas A. Edison, the genius inventor, and Henry Ford, the automobile visionary. Not only the gardens are visual delights.

Cape Coral is centrally located in Southwest Florida that most attractions can be visited as day trips. The theme parks in Orlando can be reached in about 2.5 to 3 hours. Tampa with its many museums (Dali) is like Miami only about 2 hours away, as are the Indian reservations and the Everglades. Cape Canaveral can be reached in an 3.5 hours drive. Or you take the speed boat to Key West (3 hours). Or you go by car and enjoy the fantastic journey across the Overseas Highway,!

About Bianca - we are looking forward to your visit!

We live with our kids and a lot of pets in Bavaria, Germany.

Andy works as a federal agent for migration and refugees whereas I, Bianca, keep on my phantasies and do professional art-pottering. Our children just started their training and attend university.

In buying the 'nest' we made a longtime dream come true and we are happy to share this dream with you!

Bianca - we are looking forward to your visit! purchased this house in 2011

Why Bianca - we are looking forward to your visit! chose Cape Coral

For more than 20 years we visited Southwest Florida on vacation. Endless shelling-beaches, water the colour of tourquoise, playing dolphins and manatees and an exotic fauna and flora... that´s what we need to let our souls spread their wings.

We love the people in Cape, their friendliness and open-minded attitude and feel very much at home here.

What makes this house unique

Seeing the 'nest' was love on first sight. The open floorplan and the spirit of the cozy house gave us the opportunity to decorate it tastefully and homely. For us this house is more than a vacation domicile - it is our second home!

We chose extended and high-end equipment for your (and our) pleasure and a wonderful holiday-experience.

We hope you will feel at home here, too and we always work hard to keep the nest in good shape and make it a home away from home...

Paradise Nest was a wonderful place for us on our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful! Everything was perfectly in place, clean and welcoming. It completely lived up to the advertising and reviews. I would have expected it to be a bit closer to the water but we were able to bike/walk/drive over with no problem. The pool was fantastic. All of the furniture was clean and comfortable, the beds were great. No need to bring any beach/pool gear...towels, umbrellas, toys etc are included. The check in (manager?) did show up 2 hours early the first morning so that was a surprise but did not take too long. I would come back to this house in a heartbeat or recommend to a friend. Thank you so much to the owners for the wonderful communication and for letting us enjoy your "nest"

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 daughters stayed here. The house is beautiful-as pictured, very comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed the pool and swam in it every chance we had. Close proximity to Yacht Club area for a quick bite to eat or to sit and watch the sunset! Will definitely rent again when we come back. The owners were very responsive and answered emails very quickly.

Wonderful house, wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home--immaculate and convenient to beach, stores, and Ft. Myers. The owner is extremely helpful and was immediately responsive to the only problem we had, which was the internet service from Comcast, certainly not a reflection on the owners. Bianca worked a miracle and got that problem solved immediately. Use of the bikes, kayaks, and all the beach equipment was certainly an added bonus. The pool was very private and warm. This was like a vacation with all the conveniences of your own home. The owner was helpful through the whole process from beginning to end. I highly recommend this vacation home.

The Name Say it All!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in late December, and the 1st of February is already here and it's time to go home! Will will miss this place so much! The location is central to everything, the home is very clean and modern, and the pool and lania area is absolutely outstanding. We are 'old hands' at renting properties on HomeAway, and have never had a more pleasant experience -- the communication from the owners is outstanding!

The house is very well appointed, and Bianca's touch with art really makes this home special. We rode bikes, took the chairs and umbrellas to the beach, and took several 'shelling' trips to nearby Sanibel Island. Excellent restaurants are a bike ride away, and excellent shopping is nearby.

Perhaps our best testimony is that we've already booked a return visit, and are already looking forward to that time. Well done, Bianca and family! Well done!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, John and Nancy, for your remarkable review. We only can return the compliments - you have been amiable guests who loved the nest as much as we do. We appreciate that and it means a lot to us. We are already looking forward to your next stay and promise to keep the nest in excellent condition :-D It was a pleasure to have you!

Car: recommended

The "nest" is located at the saught-after Yachtclub area, just minutes away from the beach. At Cape Coral Beach you will find the lively Boat House Bar (drinks and snacks, live music), tennis courts, childrens playground and the Yachtclub. In the evenings you can enjoy a wonderful Sunset under palmtrees.

Cape Coral Beach and South Cape Beach (at the Bimini Basin), Shopping, Dining and more are accessible within walking distance or you can use our bikes.

Cape Coral, the 'Venice of America' has a lot more to offer than just beautiful beaches and healthy climate: attractions such as the Edison-Ford Winter Estates, Manatee World, Flea market, cinemas and restaurants are also within easy reach, such as shopping outlets and the beautiful islands of Sanibel and Captiva. Swimming, golfing, fishing, snorkeling, boating or hiking through mangrove forests will give you unforgettable holiday memories. Theme parks like Disneyland, Sea World and Universal Studios in Orlando are within easy reach (highway about 2,5 hours). We also recommend a trip to the Keys down to the southernmost point of continental U.S., Key West, where Hemingway used to live. Also worth a visit are Cape Canaveral and the Ringling Museum of Arts in Sarasota. The city of Miami attracts visitors with glamor and JetSet (2 hours). Visit the Everglades and take an airboat ride in over the 'sea of grass'!

Other Activities: Tennis, boat rentals just around the corner, canoeing, golf, bowling, fitness

Golf: GOLF: In your neighborhood you will find beautiful golf courses, the choice is immense. Just in Cape Coral and Fort Myers, you have more than 30 excellent golf courses available. You will receive a detailed list of public golf courses along with our specialized guest infos after booking.

PHYSICIANS: A list of renowned physicians - just in case - you will also receive along with the guest infos.

TIP: LOCATION --- LOCATION --- LOCATION

The peninsula of Cape Coral is the second large city in Florida and extended over many square miles, so that in some locations the sights and wonderful beaches of Cape Coral, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva Iceland are more than an hour's drive away. At 'PARADISE NEST' this is not an issue - short distances - long fun!

If you want to have a birds-eye look (also streetview) on our 'Nest': Please use maps.google.com and add our address: 714 Sharar Court, Cape Coral, FL.

There you can also take a look at the surrounding area and the short way to the beaches (Yacht Club Community Park) and South Cape Beach (Four Freedoms Park).

We are happy to offer advice and assistance in planning your most enjoyable weeks of the year - with lots of insider tips on attractions, beaches, nightlife, shopping and more ... We are looking forward to having you as our guests!

Bianca & Andy

Ski: Oooops - there is no snow in Florida - but WATERSKIING in January while a nice breeze caresses your skin and the sun is shining on a cloudless sky... amazing fun!

Watersports of all kinds, Bananaboat, waterskiing, wakeboarding and more you will find at Fort Myers Beach, just 20 Minutes away from your vacation home Paradise Nest.
