About Jürgen & Nicole Straub

We are a family of four, from the beautiful area of Vorderpfalz, in Germany. From our home country we were spoiled by the soft climate and high quality of life, so we fell in love with Cape Coral during a trip to Florida. ¡Being here is simply beautiful!

When we selected a name for our villa, we chose “Villa Palatina” because “Palatina”is the Latin name for the German region of Pfalz.

Thus emerging a small personal reference.

¡We are hoping to welcome you soon to our Villa Palatina!

Just wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We often rent homes all over the country and this house was outstanding. The location and view were tropical. The house was pristine and very tastefully decorated. It was comfortable, the pool was perfect and the layout of the house was well designed. Thank you for the opportunity to share your home

Beautiful Affordable and Well Maintained

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's 2nd time staying in the Palatina. This home has provided many great memories for us. The layout of The house is perfect for families. There is ample room for all 5 of us. The master suite is nothing short of amazing and the rest of the house is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. My family has spent many hours on the back patio enjoying the view, the weather, and the pool.

The fishing is great off the recently updated boat dock. Perfect for enjoying an early morning coffee or an evening cocktail. My suggestions for the best fishing is using a half piece of frozen shrimp from the local bait shop on a circle hook. Add a lead sinker or two for some extra weight and simply drop the line under the docks or cast anywhere in the open. This year's catch included several nice catfish, some smaller snapper, and my 7 year old daughter even caught a small sting ray!

Cape Coral is very close to surrounding beaches. Our personal favorite is the islands of Sanibel/ Captiva. There are many great restaraunts and choices of activities to please even the pickiest of tourists.

We are definitely looking forward to planning our 3rd trip to this lovely home. The house is top notch and the owners are delightful to deal with.
