Wonderful River House!!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a relaxing vacation and a beautiful place to stay then this home is a perfect getaway! When we opened the door to the home we all experienced the "WOW" effect and it never wore off!!! The home is conveniently located to all kinds of adventure, entertainment, beaches, grocery stores, and restaurants. The property manager, Tim Winkelman, provided first class service, and made himself available to answer any questions throughout our stay. You cannot deal with a nicer, more experienced, exceptional property manager.....Tim is the absolute best!!!! The property was spotless, extremely well maintained, and the spectacular view and atmosphere were outstanding. The beds were very comfortable, the pool clean and well maintained, the hot tub awesome, the pool table beautiful and much care was taken by Tim to make everything perfect for our stay. Thanks to Tim we will cherish our memories visiting here forever. We have already made our plans to return this November and are counting the days until we visit again! As I said, you can't go wrong with this beautiful home....just don't choose the dates that we want to come down!

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just got back from an amazing vacation to Cape Coral. We rented the Riverfront Home for a week and it was the best vacation rental that we have rented in all our years of renting. The view from the house was gorgeous of the river, the description of the house and the amenities were accurate of the description listed on the site. The pool was the cleanest and warmest pool that we have rented from. Diana was awesome to work with, she answered all of our questions and the captain took us on our tour with the boat and dolphins were jumping right next to our boat; will be a memory that we will treasure forever. We would highly recommend this house for your next vacation in Cape Coral.

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5
We are sitting in the airport waiting to fly back to Wisconsin from this year's trip and we are already talking about next year. We stayed a week at this house and it was fabulous, everything was just what we expected. The view was amazing, the pool was the cleanest pool that we have seen, the house was huge for two people, but it will be perfect when we return next year with our son and his family. Diana was wonderful answering all the questions we had, the captain took us on our tour with the boat and we saw dolphins jumping right behind the boat, something that we will remember forever. We have rented other houses in the Cape Coral area and this is by far the best home to spend your vacation at. Counting the days until next April .

Thanks for the memories.

Awesome Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We were most impressed with the location right on the river, with the spectacular views both day and night. as the property is not on a main thoroughfare, it was always quiet as well. The home was outfitted with all the essentials for an extended stay and property was clean and looked after.Any inquiries were answered right away by Diana , who was a most gracious host as well. We have a 5 of 5 rating for this property, noting that all was presented as promised and enjoyed the location as it was central to all activities and shopping areas.

Was a good stay and met our expectations. New boat was a great surprise. Looked just like the pictures and cleaner than expected. The sun deck was a real treat for all. Diana and the Captain were very helpful and fun to talk to. Thanks.

Be aware that the house is very different to the photographs displayed on this website. It has a different, much smaller sofa and old, dated decor. Our family of 5 adults were not all able to be seated. The misleading description misrepresents the home, so much so that the manager, Diana agreed at check-in and promised to liaise with the owner to discuss a possible partial refund. This did not happen.
We rented the house and boat together - our main reason for staying in Cape Coral is to get out onto the water, however the boat was old, dirty and in very poor condition. It broke down on the first day, immediately after our short instruction trip and was not repairable. Incredibly, when this became apparent to the manager, she did not care at all and had no compassion whatsoever for our situation. She did not attempt to replace the broken boat.
To add to our frustration the house telephone line was down for the first 5 days of our stay which meant we were unable to freely and easily call local boat rental companies for a replacement. We only had a European mobile telephone which we ran up a large bill on whilst attempting to get help, but being only days from Christmas there were no boats available anywhere. After many angry phone calls and emails to the manager who was totally unsympathetic, we were eventually refunded the cost of the boat rental and did not have one for the whole time. We tried to make the best of a very bad situation but it was not the same at all without the boat that we had looked forward to so much and our stay at Cape Coral was ruined.

We did not use the pool heat, hot tub or air conditioning, yet at check-out the manager had the audacity to try to charge 'substantially' more than our electricity allowance for the rental. Needless to say, we refused to pay this and interestingly, it was not contested. However, in addition, at check-out we were advised of a small outstanding amount which was supposedly from the currency conversion when we transferred the balance payment from our European bank some two months earlier. Surely, any discrepancy in payment should be addressed at the time of transaction?! We were forced to pay this in order to have our security deposit returned!

This was supposed to be a very special holiday, but instead we found ourselves stressed and frustrated about the situation, disbelieving, angry, disgusted and generally let down at the treatment we received from such poor management.

Owner's Response: To begin I would like to inform you that we have been renting out this house, complaint free, since 2001. If you would like to, you may look at the reviews as there are no unsatisfied customers. In our fourteen year experience with this house we have never had this many problems with any families, and we would like to give you some insight into our side of the argument. The home owner replaced the couch with a new one in order to accommodate a better feeling for the guests as the old one was worn out. The guest forgot to mention that an additional chair with ottoman was available to accommodate extra seating. One of our services before the arrival of a new renter is that we turn on the air conditioning and heat the pool and spa to the proper temperature. Upon check-in the first thing the renters instructed me to do was to turn off the air conditioning, the pool heater, and the spa heater. As soon as I received information regarding the home phone I notified the service provider, other than this action there was no possibility to speed this process up on my end. Regardless of the situation at hand the family was able to call me via cell phone. Upon arrival of the new renters the boat had not been cleaned as the previous renters used it until the very end of their allotted stay. It was cleaned on that same day as to preserve the ability to hand it over to the new renters at the specified time. During the briefing and the test drive the boat was in perfect mechanical condition. It was not until after the renters first took the boat out by themselves that a technical fault appeared, one which could not be quickly remedied. The captain attempted to acquire a replacement boat to no avail. I then myself tried to find one but as it was during the holidays and so close to Christmas my efforts were also futile. Due to these unfortunate events I proceeded to refund the full amount for the boat rental to the renters. The agreed rental amount was not fully paid and the difference was taken into account by the final statement, which led to the renter voicing her discontent in an exaggeratedly loud tone concerning this regular procedure. In tangent to the matter at hand I would like to pay notice to the fact that she refused to pay the electricity costs that were specified. It was impossible to communicate with the renters, due to the fact that everything they voiced they would scream and I was caught in an unrelenting storm of cussing and threats.
