I am a single woman and safety is really important to me. Porto Vista is very safe ! The owner is wonderful, thorough and easy to work with!! She sent a "Welcome Packette" to me before my arrival. It included keys to the building and the unit. When I arrived I found a second set of color coded keys along with a Porto Visto gate opener and informational binder about Cape Coral. I relaxed immediately and felt welcomed and safe !
The unit was spotless with all the supplies I could possibly need. Appliances are very easy to use. The beds are amazingly comfortable. The sheets are 400 threads per inch--SO very soft and inviting. There are plenty of towels in all sizes including beach towels. My bedroom and bathroom are huge with professional window and bedding treatments. The condo is EXACTLY like the photos. The second bedroom is decorated just as nicely. Its bathroom includes a powerful and refreshing shower and tub. The livingroom, diningroom and kitchen are open and spacious with comfy and well coordinated furniture. Fabulous !
The first floor entry allows easy access to the pool, clubhouse, exercise room and parking lot-plenty of room to park your car. The pool has lots of chairs and tables and people keep it clean and return the chairs and lounges to their original places at the end of the day.
The people are SO friendly and helpful. For example, my next door neighbor helped me with my laptop computer so I could access wi-fi. At the pool the people are eager to help with information. They told me details like: where to park at a Sanibel beach and a restaurant that has enormous muffins (Mimi's). There are people talking,laughting and everybody was there to enjoy themselves. It seems to me that there are very few units available for rent. Most condo owners had rented and then bought their units because this is a very desireable complex.
The location is wonderful. There is everything from a new Publix to gas stations to nail salons etc. A fantastic restaurant "The Lobster Lady" serves fresh everything, its reviewa are excellent and it is only a block away ! There are high end shops and restaurants at the marina and in downtown Cape Coral (Brew Babies). There are many fun, family restaurants like Rib City.
It is a pleasure to enter this beautifully landscaped and well maintained Porto Visto Complex. The people are happy, pool is awesome,location is great! I VERY HIGHLY recommend renting this unit !
