“The perfect holiday base”
Reviewed June 2, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Having just returned from a fantastic three-week stay at this lovely home, we can wholeheartedly recommend it. As other reviewers mention, the home is equipped with everything anyone could possibly need. We particularly liked the location. The gated community is beautifully landscaped and well-maintained and there are supermarkets and shopping malls close by. The local beach and pier are just a short drive away and there are plenty of other beaches along the coast. A long bridge over the water takes you to the linked islands of Sanibel and Captiva with great cafes, restaurants, shops and of course beaches. Lots to enjoy with the bonus of being based in a fabulous holiday home.

“Wonderful, spacious, fully equipped home with lovely pool”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for 1 week. There were 5 adults and 2 children staying with us and we had many other family members come over to eat and visit. There was plenty of room for everyone. There is everything you need already stocked at this home, even pool and beach toys. The décor is lovely.

“An extremely memorable stay in a beautiful home.”
Reviewed May 6, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

My family and I visited in April
2016. The location was perfect
to all beaches. The beautiful
home was situated in a gated community on a lake filled with wildlife. Breakfast on the lanai early morning, was spectacularly peaceful and was an amazing way to start your day.
The house was pristinely clean, tastefully decorated, spacious, and extremely efficiently equipped with every possible necessity. The pool was at a perfect temperature, clean and inviting. Outside patio furniture,
grill and sun-beds completed
the perfect outdoor experience.
Check-in was extremely efficient
and the day after arriving, the owner Pete called to check to make sure that everything was in order. He was amazingly helpful and made great suggestions for restaurants and family activities.


A great vacation---I will definitely be back.

It was the 1st time for myself and my family in a private villa and were a bit apprehensive but all for nothing.
The owner, Peter, could not have been more helpful with information and tips of things to do. We did activities every single day. Also we asked if some friends could join us and he was very accommodating.
The property was like being home from home but with the hot weather and the swimming pool.
Also we had the use of the bikes and the beach stuff which came very handy.
We had a lovely view of the lake and it all its "visitors" (birds and alligator) and it was amazing having dinner at sunset.
All restaurants and shopping nearby, it could not have made our holiday more perfect.
We will come back again and will recommend this to anyone who wish for lovely beaches, nice shopping, lots of activities and private location.

“Relax & enjoy the birds on the lake & pool”
Reviewed December 29, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

We had an excellent holiday with no problems getting into the villa where everything worked well, first time and every time.

We particularly enjoyed the quiet on the gated estate, swimming and lazing by the pool and watching and being entertained by the wide variety of residents on the lake and its illuminated fountain. We imagine the new table, chairs and loungers are a great improvement.

The first week was cold with temperatures down in the 40s every night, so were pleased the heater overcame the challenge and we were able to use the pool every day.

We used the BBQ quite a lot, leaving the gas almost full. The management company were very organised and responsive.

We used the bikes quite extensively, once we had borrowed the neighbours air compressor to pump up the tyres, and adjusted saddles and handlebars. The only improvement would be to adjust the gears on the man‘s one so they do not return to high gear immediately all the time. We took them to Sanibel, Barefoot Beach and Bonita Springs twice, and cycled to Bunche Beach, Punta Russa and Shell Island, as well as visiting our friends. They took us to Fort Myers Theatre, Edison & Ford estates Christmas lights and several restaurants – we particularly enjoyed the 2 for 1 pizzas on Tuesdays at Citrola’s and ice creams at the Love Boat.. We also took extensive walks on Barefoot and Fort Myers Beaches covering their whole lengths at least twice.

We agree your villa is ideally placed for visiting the area and beaches in particular and would definitely recommend it to friends. Having visited the Gulf Coast 3 out of the past 4 winters we can easily say this was the best villa and the best holiday generally.
