Small step by front door and garage and pool. No boat access via wheel chair though. If you have no boating experience, our boat captain will inist that you take 4 hour's tuition before allowing you to take the boat out on his own. There is a fee for this tuition of $250 paid locally to our boat captain. Guests who have had the lesson have found it very helpful and have been pleased that they were shown how to drive and navigate the boat confidently. Guests are required to fill the boat with gas on departure as it is delivered full.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

From many prevoious years renting in the Cape area this would be the one to come back to without hesitation. Brand new home,Great location, great views,great pool, great dock with boat, great house that is spacious enough for two families and very clean.

Dealing with the owner has been very easy with prompt return to any questions and all details were truthfully described. Will easily recommend this property to our friends that rent in the Cape each year.

Nice location, nice boat, but Villa facilities inadequate and need some repairs and attention.

  • 1 of 5

The whole house was generally in a ‘tired’ state and urgently needed some ‘R & M’.

The blinds in 3 of the 4 bedrooms did not work and would not open. The large vertical blinds in the master bedroom were brittle and cracked and we could not use them.

The pool was not very clean (scum round the outsides and dirt floating on top of the water) when we arrived and we found at the bottom of the pool a white ring off the pool water inlet which we placed on the side of the pool expecting it to be replaced by the pool attendant. After almost 2 weeks it had not been replaced until the pool was cleaned 2 days before we left.

The master bathroom was inadequately equipped with no hooks or handles for towels, dressing gowns, clothes or anything. We had to use the toilet seat or the floor!! What remained of the shower door handle was loose and in danger of falling off. There was a soap holder in the shower but nowhere else to put shampoo/conditioner, etc. other than the floor. We went out and bought 2 baskets with suction cups for this purpose. There were no grab rails provided in either bathroom and my friend slipped badly and hurt herself in the shower over the bath in bathroom 2, and then my husband slipped in the master bathroom shower. We reported this to the agents and a bath mat was subsequently provided.

After the first week, we found in the 4th bedroom (next to the garage) what we thought was an ‘infestation’. One morning there was so much evidence of droppings (either mice or rats) that I phoned the agent who said he thought it must be gecko's. The agent told us how to identify gecko droppings (white bits on the droppings) and these droppings certainly didn’t have any white bits so clearly weren’t from a gecko. Nobody would sleep in this bedroom after this.

There was a nauseating smell from the garage which permeated the entire house – obviously not helped by the hot weather.

The house is in a good location and in a nice area but it takes at least half to three quarters of an hour on the boat to get out of the canals to the river.

The master bathroom is very large, but the 2nd bathroom catering for the other 3 double bedrooms is far too small and ill equipped.

We would not recommend the villa and will definitely not be returning.

Lovely villa lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa in early November and had a wonderful week although we hardly used the inside areas as the out-side deck and pool were lovely to sit, relax, swim, eat and have a few glass’s.

The villa is extremely well equipped and surprisingly for a rental villa had lots of extras such as condiments, spices, washing tabs etc left for use of guests. The view over the lake is fantastic any time of the day but particularly when the sun comes up right across the water.

We had use of the boat and it was well used, visiting Fort Myers beach and Pine Island, Gene who visits to hand the boat over is a lovely guy and a full of useful information.

We would certainly stay at this lovely villa again when we re-visit Cape Coral, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Excellent location and great villa

  • 5 of 5

This is as advertised, a spacious well equipped villa on the water. Everything you needed was there, including a gas BBQ that actually worked! The pool was enhanced by the unusual infinity feature which allowed you to float and look over the lake until you shriveled up.

The boat was a great addition but the trip to the gulf was at least 30 minutes at idle or slow speed before you could make real progress, but you get used to that.

Basic shopping and eating are available in the neighborhood, but you would have to drive a little while for real selection, but again no hardship.

Fort Myers beach, Sanibel and Captiva Islands were an easy drive away and well worth the effort. The Everglades is only an hour or so down the road and a fantastic day out. We really did see alligators swimming beside us in a river!

The owner was always helpful and a pleasure to deal with.

I'm sure we'll go back again as the pressure from my two teenage children is almost too much to resist!

Excellent relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described and suited my family perfectly. Roomy, well laid out and very clean. The pool was also excellent with the 'infinity' feature providing something different.

The boat was good fun, access to the gulf was easy but it was at least 20 minutes of the same canals at idle speed before you got anywhere and another 20 minutes at slow speed before you could get clear of boat traffic and actually speed up and make progress. But not complaining, I don't have the facility at home in the UK!

It is close enough to basic shopping and there are a few local restaurants within 10 minutes, but you would have to drive a little further for most other facilities.

Fort Myers beach and Sanibel and Captiva Islands are an easy drive and well worth the visit.

My teenage son found a top class skate park not too far away so he was happy.

The Everglades is only an hours drive and well worth the effort as it is a great day out, where you will actually see the wildlife in it's natural habitat, guaranteed.

I dealt directly with the owner who was always very helpful and prompt with email replies.

I would definitely recommend this villa and the location if you want a theme park free relaxing Florida holiday.

Nearest Airport
15 Miles
Fort Myers
Car: recommended

Cape Coral situated on the Southwest coast of Florida, The only way to fully appreciate the cape coral area is by boat, hundreds of miles of inter-coastal waterways to explore. With every day a new adventure on the boat, even if just going for lunch. A wildlife spotters or Fisherman's paradise ! Conveniently close to Fort Myers international airport just 15 miles away. Close proximity to unspoilt white sand beaches, all access by boat a number of excellent golf courses and all the nearby family attractions, restaurants and shopping you could want. Close to Sanibel, Captiva and Pine Islands where you can watch dolphins play. Busch Gardens Theme Park is a couple of hours away for a good day out, as is a trip down the coast to Naples or an hour away to Everglade City for a thrilling ride on an air boat.
