About Rick & Sheila Crawley

We're Brits living in England's beautiful Lake District, so unsurprisingly we like to vacation where the sun (nearly always) shines, and where we can indulge our interest in walking & wildlife whilst enjoying wonderful family vacations.

Rick & Sheila Crawley purchased this villa in 2004

Why Rick & Sheila Crawley chose Fort Myers

We bought our home in Fort Myers after several happy family holidays staying in a number of homes along Florida's gulf coast, all of which were looked after by our current property manager. We love the area, and in particular its less developed / less commercial character compared to many stretches of the gulf coast. Our particular interest is the wildlife, of all kinds, and we are great walkers. Recently we've begun to explore the wilder side of Florida by kayak & on foot, & after a little initial trepidation (about what might be lurking in the undergrowth / water!) we're coming to love this too. In our opinion Ft Myers the best place on the Gulf Coast for the wide variety of things to do, both very locally & on day trips.

What makes this villa unique

We love the open plan living that our house embodies, the big open space that opens onto the outdoors, and the way the outdoor space becomes just another part of your living area. We never fail to eat outside whenever possible, and love to be outdoors in the evening, with the warm-weather sounds of the night all around - crickets, frogs, etc. We also love our own space and privacy - it's great not to have to worry about who's on the next table to you at dinner, or in the next room in a hotel. It's great to be close to the beach, but it's also really important to be close to lots of other things to do, so that the needs of all family members are satisfied - fishing, golf, boating, water sports, swimming, parks & playgrounds, nature, heritage & history, the movies, shopping, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Love your house! The pool is awesome, especially like the kitchen! Great location. We had a great time. Thank you, we will be back!

Fabulous villa in an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed in the villa on 6 occasions and plan 7th visit soon. The villa is furnished beautifully and maintained to a very high standard including lanai and pool. Conveniently situated for shops, restaurants, beaches, and wild life, (superb for photographers).

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Colonial Pointe Villa has a quiet, family neighborhood feel to it (gated), but, is in close proximity to beaches, stores, and restaurants. In addition to being close to the necessities, we also like the fact that you can take a short drive to several major league baseball spring training parks to watch a game. You have Jet Blue Park, City of Palms Park and Hammond Stadium to mention a few.

As for the house, the pictures give you a very good idea of what to expect. It's spacious, comfortable, clean and everything works with some great perks like multiple tv's. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and there is plenty of room to relax inside or out. All the systems work perfectly include having good water pressure, and good wifi. It was like being at home.

Having stayed in the Villa several times, we have always been well served by both the owners and their management company (when we needed something extra). Living in the U.S. with the owners in the U.K. I have to say the communication has been excellent and I have no hesitations what-so-ever renting this house again and plan on doing so.

Fantastic house and location

  • 5 of 5

Have returned to this house a number of times and cant help being continually impressed. Everything you need and more for a great holiday with house spotless throughout. As always, dealing with Sheila was hassle free and always got prompt response to any questions. Highly recommend this house and will be hoping to be staying again soon.

Superb villa in a fantasic location

  • 5 of 5

Colonial Pointe Villa is a real gem of a property and is located in one of the finest areas of Florida, with access to Fort Myers beaches, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, which are both a real must to visit. The area is great for shopping and has some fabulous restaurants nearby, but it is also positioned well to access some fantastic areas full of wildlife. The villa, part of a secure gated community, is very well appointed and really has everything and more that you will need for a relaxing and comfortable holiday. We have two sons aged 12 and 16 who along with ourselves make great use of the private pool, but when you need a little peace and quiet the villa has sufficient space to accommodate us all. We have stayed here four times now and it really feels like a home from home with the added bonus of lovely Florida weather!

Great Villa in a good position for all needs

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year we have stayed in the villa, which I think says everything! Whatever holiday style you are looking for, you can get it here. It is within a very private and peaceful gated site, so offers the perfect setting for a relaxing break. Shopping within walking distance (Wynn Dixie) or a short drive to WalMart and Designer Outlets. Numerous beaches within easy driving, including Sanibel and Captiva. Good access to the many restaurants of Fort Myers and surrounding area. The villa itself could not be better equipped and has always been very clean and tidy for our visits. A reasonable drive from Tampa of Miami, but well worth it.

Relaxing and well looked after

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic and relaxing vacation in a beautiful and well positioned property. We stayed here (family of five) for almost two weeks and all felt it was the best rental we had experienced in 10 years or so of Florida holiday rentals.

It really is very relaxing (a beautiful view over the lake from the pool helped) and the villa itself was very well maintained and had everything you could wish for. Location is good as well with the Sweetbay supermarket within walking distance (or a very short drive).

Only gripe was that the pool water did go green a couple of days before the pool cleaner was due to visit but I think that was just a factor of the weather and I only mention it here to remind anyone to phone up the (very helpful) management company if that happens to them and they can arrange the pool cleaner to come out sooner.

All in all, if you think this suits your requirements and you can find availability (we have already tried to book for next year and the were booked up) then you will have a fantastic time if you book here.

Colonial Pointe is an exclusive, gated community of 72 single-family homes in South Fort Myers, surrounding a peaceful lake. Wide selection of local shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. Championship golf courses at every turn. Just 10 minutes from the glorious west coast islands of Sanibel and Captiva, and Fort Myers Beach. The Ford and Edsion winter homes are worth a visit. The wildlife is great - Lakes Park is just a short a cycle ride or a 5 minute drive from the house.

The local Publix (2 minutes by car) and Sweetbay (walking distance) are great grocery stores, with excellent fresh produce, sushi, fish, steaks, wine, etc.

If you're arriving late and tired, 7-11 (24 hour convenience store and gas / petrol) is literally just round the corner.

Walgreens and more are just round the corner. And for fashion, the huge Miromar Designer Outlets, Tanger Outlet Mall, Bell Tower Shops and other malls are all within a 15 minute drive.

Health club nearby.
