About Rachelle and Daniel Smith

I am a verified homeowner at vrbo/HomeAway. I pried myself on my guest's happiness with Villa Genoa during their stay. Please check out my reviews and you will see most of my guests keep returning! References available upon request. Please contact me for the most accurate rate before requesting to book:)

Rachelle and Daniel Smith purchased this house in 2009

Why Rachelle and Daniel Smith chose Cape Coral

We had been looking for a home in Florida for a while. My husband visited Cape Coral and found the Villa. He had a feeling it would be a great vacation spot for our family. He was right!

What makes this house unique

The Villa is in a desirable location, close to everything you could ever need. While there recently we enjoyed shelling at Sanibel Is., Fort Myers Beach, and most of all just sitting on the Lanai and swimming in the pool. Most of our bookings are repeat guests from the time we bought! Help is just a phone call away if you have any questions. We employ local people (neighbors) to do landscaping, maintenance, and cleaning. So if something comes up during your stay a quick fix is doors away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great visit here at the Villa! We have family in the area and this has been the perfect retreat here enjoying the fam. The kid's have enjoyed fishing and catching catfish, swimming in the pool and the many beaches here in the area. Thanks for sharing your home!

Snowbird Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed Villa Genoa for 8 years and looking forward to next year. It feels like our second home and our grown children and family who visit love it there too. Close to shopping and restaurants. Also, the south facing lanai is warm even on cooler days as is the heated swimming pool. We have found it has everything we need and very comfortable. The owners have always been great to work with.

Great Villa with lots to do

  • 5 of 5

We keep coming back to this villa for our vacation. It's very clean and meets out needs. We love that it's located to so many beaches. Venice beach, Sanibal Island,Naples beach and Fort Myers. We enjoy the access to the pool and our boys like to fish in the canal. This year we rented kayaks and explored the canals. Looking forward to our next visit.

We highly recommend this property. Close to grocery stores and everything else you might like. Handy to several locations and beaches including a dig park and beach in Bonita Beach. No shortage of options. The owners are marvelous to work with.

Our stay at villa Genoa

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the villa was just as described, it was exceptionally clean and very well stocked, more so than expected there was even a couple of beers in the fridge which was a nice touch after a long drive to get there. The house was perfect for my family and I. The pool is a perfect size for a small family and was clean and warm and my grandson loved it. It is in a perfect location and close to everything with good routes to everything including some very good restaurants. I would recommend this home to anyone. While I only had contact with Rachelle she could not have been more helpful. She was also very prompt in returning my damage deposit without being asked. I hope to return next year.
