The home is very spacious; the open design and the bright colors will set all your senses on vacation mode. Villa Manatee is located in one of the most beautiful Cape Coral neighborhoods and close to the river; the house overlooks a wide canal full of water lilies and there is no better place to sit and enjoy nature than down there on the dock. Even though this view makes you feel like you are far away from the city you are actually close to the bridges across the river to Ft. Myers and very close to shopping and dining.
Villa Manatee’s maritime charm will take you captive right away and makes you fall in love with Cape Coral, the heart of the Waterfront-Wonderland; three bedrooms provide plenty of space for a party of six; the master bedroom features a king-size bed, the guest bedroom features a queen size bed, while the second guest room (we like to call it the pirate suite) has Twin beds and is ideal for kids or those young at heart. HD Cable Smart TV’s are provided in the living room, master bedroom, and the “pirate suite”.
The lanai is huge, all pavers, the brand-new pool with an electrical heat pump allows swimming all year round; a BBQ-grill is waiting for your steaks and the mild breeze from the river will enchant you day after day and make this the best vacation ever.

Comment from Sanford Realty:
Two couples stayed in the house and we are glad that they enjoyed their vacation, liked the house, and overall had a good time here. We strive to make our guests happy by ensuring the house including garage and trash cans are clean and do all we can to provide a 5-star experience. Initially when we came to the house for check-out on the day the guests left they told us that everything was great and how they had loved it; however, their attitude changed dramatically when some wrong-doing was discovered. Three out of the four people were embarrassed and apologized, one became very angry and it seems safe to assume that this feedback was written by the angry gentleman. Let’s explain what happened: Cape Coral enjoys subtropical climate – we always point out to guests and also have it in writing in our “what’s important about the house” booklet that organic trash like bones, meat-, fruit-, and vegetables-leftovers cannot be put in the trashcan as it is but needs to go in plastic bags because otherwise all kinds of critters and insects will be attracted and within a few days the trashcan and maybe the house as well will crawl with insects and maggots. And this is how we found the trashcan in question: “alive” and stinking to the heavens – with new guests coming in the same day which means that this receptacle must be cleaned by hand and scrubbed and treated with pesticides and disinfectants. The tone in which those facts were stated to the guests was not arrogant but informative; we do, however, not take any offense in their claim as we see that a language barrier may have played a role in this case. The additional cost is explained by the fact that the cleaning staff is charging for extra (stomach-turning) work like this and for all the materials named above had to be bought and utilized in this case to provide hygienic and safe, clean conditions for the new guests arriving that same day. It is sad that an explanation and pointing out a mistake in today’s world is viewed as arrogance.
In der Garage gab es Strandstühle/Schirme, Fahrräder was wir auch als super empfanden.
Sowohl An- als auch Abreise liefen reibungslos und wir bekamen von der Fam. Sanford nich hilfreiche Ausflugstipps. Leider ging die Zeit zu schnell um aber wir kommen definitiv wieder!!!
Allerdings waren 9 Tage sehr kurz. Wir waren vorher noch ein paar Tage in Orlando und Key West. Das nächste Mal bleiben wir länger.
Man kann wunderschöne Ausflüge nach Sanibel Island, Captiva, Naples,... machen.
Wenn wir die Fotos anschauen, bekommen wir Fernweh. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Wir fühlten uns extrem wohl in der Villa. Beim öffnen der Eingangstüre sagten wir: WOW, was für ein Haus. Nachdem wir die restlichen Räume und Einrichtungen sahen wussten wir: Das ist das was wir wollten. Die Villa entsprach zu 100% den Angaben im Online Inserat. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt und sehr sauber. Alles funktionierte und es ist auch alles vorhanden was man für das Tägliche so braucht. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in unmittelbarer Umgebung. Das Domizil werden wir sicherlich weiterempfehlen. Und für uns selbst gilt: WE WILL BE BACK.
