Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Helen,

I meant to email you (and sorry I didn't do it sooner), but we absolutely LOVED your home, and I definitely wanted to let you know that! We actually are still in Florida (but will be heading home in a few weeks), and although we are now in another home which is very nice, it just doesn't compare to "Serenity"! I was just thinking about your home this morning and that I wanted to let you know there is just something "magical" about it! We had a few friends and family visit us while there, and they fully agreed.

In comparison, the home we are in now doesn't have near the kitchen amenities your home had such as cookware and a garbage disposal, etc. (Loved that it had so many Pyrex type dishes and pots and pans, etc.!) One of my goals while I was there was to vastly improve my cooking skills, and it was THE perfect kitchen for that! It was great to have such a beautiful view while doing something I only mildly enjoy! : ) (And I loved the pantry too which is another thing I'm missing at this home!)

I just asked my husband if he had anything to add, and he said to let you know it was "perfect"! (It worked wonderfully for him in his wheelchair too!)

Also, we felt Dorit and her handyman did a great job as well!

We will most definitely keep it in mind if we return next year, and I hope you get to visit more often because you really have something special!



P.S. (We just said last night that once we get back to "reality", Villa Serenity is going to be our mental "happy place" so I'm sure we will be "visiting" there a lot!)

Fabulous comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our stay in this house and were so happy that it was just as nice, if not nicer, than it looked from the pictures. It's in a lovely neighborhood and the location on the canal is beautiful and peaceful.

It is a very spacious house and our two kids were thrilled to have their own rooms. And it was easy for them to share the twin room for 2 days when my sister and her husband drove over from Miami to visit. It never felt crowded even with 2 more people there.

We spent most of our time out on the lanai by the pool. This was the best spot ever! The pool was great and we used it a lot. We ate every meal outside which was just heaven since we knew it was snowy and cold at home! It was so nice to have our own kitchen and the outside grill for cooking. We went to the fish market in Matlacha and got some really delicious fish and seafood to cook at home.

The house is in a good location although it did amaze me how long it took to get to different places with all of the traffic. Apparently at the time we were there, there were masses of other tourists and the traffic was the worst ever. Who knew it would take one hour to get to Fort Myers Beach?!?!? I'm sure it must not be that bad when it's not during spring break times.

We didn't have a boat but can see that that would've been fantastic with the big boat dock there. We also saw tons of fish swimming in the canal so I imagine fishing right off the dock would be great. It was fun just to look at the fish and see all the various birds flying around.

There were 2 bikes in the garage but since there were 4 of us we never tried them out. I had thought we might ride to the grocery store to pick things up, but with all the traffic (and it was warm!!) we never did. But I can see it would be an option.

The weather was perfect the entire week we were there and we really had the most marvelous time - and we truly mostly enjoyed hanging out at this incredibly comfortable house. We miss it already and would stay here again in a heartbeat!!!

Very pleased with all aspects of our stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at Villa Serenity in Cape Coral Florida. We found the location close to all the activities that we normally attend while staying in Cape Coral. We have been to Cape Coral for the past three years and we found Villa Serenity provided the best value along with an excellent maintained property.

The property is located in a quiet community .

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need for cooking and entertaining

We enjoyed the pool area which was well situated so you could be in the sun or shade any time of the day.

There is plenty of room for guests or a large family .

Our check in and check out went smoothly and the property manager was very friendly and professional .

We are very pleased that we will be returning in 2016

Beautiful, welcoming, well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the description was accurate. Bob and I were very surprised as to the size of the rooms. Very large and roomy. As we would say later the mansion that we stayed at was 'Beautiful'.

Just loved having the sliding doors to use to go outside. It made for a very comfortable and relaxing vacation. The owner and manager provided very good customer service.

Yes we would recommend this property to all our friends and relatives. My sister and brother-in-law stayed with us for a short time and she was in tears saying it was her

best vacation ever.

Attractions for us were numerous. Our favorite was Annie's Diner, Mel's and Ford's Garage. Food and service was excellent. As for the attractions...the Shell Factory was one of our favorites. Bob and I have already made arrangements to return.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable, fully equipped and has all you could ask for. The view of the canal is beautiful and the house is very spacious and comfortable. It is not far from the yacht club and the beach. Also has a very comfortable lanai with a hot tub for those evenings you want to spend at home just relaxing. Looking forward to spending many more winters there.
