“Evcellent Villa and position”
Reviewed 16 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The property has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing vacation.. It has a heated pool (included in the villa rental) and immediate access to a canal which is moments away from the river taking you to the Gulf of Mexico, ideal for boaters and fishermen.
A small beach is a short walk away as is the local Boathouse eating venue.
A car is essential to enable access to restaurants and shops/malls.
It comes highly recommended.

“Great Quiet Location, Perfect if you've a boat too”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We've used this management company on three occasions now in the last 12 months. The villa we previously rented was unavailable (How dare the owners decide to move back in permanently in that one!) On this most recent trip so we asked Keely what was available and this one was highlighted.
We stayed approx four weeks and had no problems with the villa. It is situated great for those who may have/ or rent a boat as access to the open river and main waterways is very close. (Some locations in Cape Coral you may spend 20 minutes chugging at 5kts to get anywhere near this position)
Having said that, we didn't use a boat on this occasion but I would recommend it if you do.
No one seems to walk anywhere in the US but we found this villa was within easy walking distance (10 mins) of a small beach over looking the main waterway. (Cape Coral Yacht Club) There was also the Boathouse restaurant/ bar there which became a regular haunt as I didn't have to drive there to see the fantastic sunsets and have a few beers. The beach was very clean and would suit families with young kids who maybe didn't want a long day at one of the Gulf beaches. The main beaches, Fort Myers/ Sanibel Island etc are between 25 and 40 minutes drive away depending on traffic. However this location is about as good as you're going to get to reach the main access roads and the bridge over the river towards Fort Myers.
Most of the local restaurants aren't too far away either. 4 to 5 minute drive, or about a 1.5 mile walk.
As for the Villa it's at the end of a cul de sac, has no passing vehicle traffic, large comfortable rooms, big TV, and the kitchen has everything you'll need.
I spent a lot of time drinking beer and catching fish off the decking area out back, or lounging around in the sun on one of the very cushioned loungers (They're usually so hard/ nasty in many villas!) The pool is a good size too.
I think you'd benefit from this villa more if you have a boat, but we enjoyed our stay a lot and will be returning.
As for this management company, we didn't experience any problems, (nor have we with previous rentals) however Keely was calling with advice and updates re an imminent hurricane which luckily stayed out of reach. It was that kind of thing which leads you to believe they are looking out for your interests. (I have experienced some quite indifferent management companies on prior visits to Cape Coral)
So yes, I'd recommend a stay here. Only please try and avoid any dates that I want to return!!!
(Oh and before I forget as this irritates me. Whatever final price you get quoted includes everything. Villas from other companies iv'e rented have seemed slightly cheaper but they end up charging add ons for electricity useage, barbeque gas, and other incidentals. All of this was included in the price quoted for this villa)

“Amazing home”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

we just stayed at this beautiful home for 8 days and let me tell you it was amazing. The home is so pretty and there is everything there you can think of that you would need. Keely was always so helpful through the whole process. The views from the canal are breathtaking at night...we loved the night swims in the pool..My husband says we will rent this again for all our trips to Cape coral...

“Nice villa, good spot”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Keely was helpful and the villa was true to the details, reasonably well equipped, clean and spacious. Small drawbacks like very low levels of lighting in the kitchen and the bedlinen needs replacing - bobbly sheets - otherwise would have been a 5 star review.
