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!

The Straub family

Jürgen & Nicole Straub purchased this villa in 2015

Why Jürgen & Nicole Straub chose Cape Coral

The location of the house is perfect! It is located southeast of Cape Coral directly on the side of an ample salt-water canal, surrounded by a peaceful area, and a charming neighbourhood. Villa Palatina is located in the middle of all the commodities of southeast Florida, including all the beaches, shops, restaurants and much more. You can also reach Fort Myers in a couple of minutes. ¡Only 15 minutes away, through the beautiful Rubicon Canal, you will reach the Gulf of Mexico!

Furthermore, Villa Palatina was completely renovated in 2014 with a special new roof that can stand hurricane winds of up to 180 mph (compared to the standard 130 mph), CGI hurricane windows and doors, a new screen with extra space, the pool and terrace floors are new, a new irrigation system, dock with Captains Walk, Tiki ranch and boat elevator. New carpeting and tiles. The main beedroom has an ample shower, a hydromassage tub, kitchen with granite tables and bar, new electronic appliences.

What makes this villa unique

As mentioned before, the location of “Villa Palatina” is perfect, the opportunity to rent a boat and explore Cape Coral and its surroundings from the water, or to go to the sea, that carecterizes our house.

average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the door we felt the house was amazing in all aspects.

There was easily enough space for 6 adults & 2 children and the view overlooking the canal was mesmerising .

Good access to Ft Myers beach and a bit further afield if you wanted to.

The pool was lovely and regularly used.

The only negative comment for us being British was no kettle but that isn't the first time we have said that in the states

This house was even better than we had imagined. Furnished with anything you could possibly need. Full of beauty throughout. The floor plan was excellent for traverlers with kids. Great catfishing right off the dock. Very Very beautiful. Owners went above and beyond to make sure was just as we hoped for. Cant wait to come back!!

Villa Paletina Cape Coral Florida

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful house and location on the canal. All went well with connecting with the management representative to meet on initial arrival and go thru the house. Very happy with all communication with the home owners, very friendly and helpful! This is a very clean, well maintained home, the pool was great and all amenities. Enjoyed sitting down by the water on the canal at the table on the deck! Would highly recommend "Villa Paletina", a great vacation and experience!

Exactly what I had hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Cape Coral for Thanksgiving was most pleasant in this waterfront pool home. The pictures and description were exactly as expected. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to enjoy a relaxing time in paradise. The home is located conveniently to everything a vacationing family would need or want. The owners and property management were wonderful to work with and helped us feel right at home. I hope to return to this property again soon.

Wünderschöne Tage in der Villa Palatina

  • 5 of 5

Vom ersten Moment bis zum letzen Augenblick haben wir uns sehr wohl in Ihrer wünderschönen Villa gefühlt. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Besonders hervorheben möchten wir auch die perfekte Lage in Cape Coral. Die Villa ist sehr hochwertig und geschmackvoll ausgestattet. Jeder Raum ist mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Dies hat uns mehr als überzeugt. Die Einrichtung ist modern und entspricht zu 100% den eingestellten Fotos des Besitzers. Wir empfanden die Realität sogar noch viel hochwertiger als es auf den Bildern bereits wirkt. Auch die Außenanlagen der Villa sind top gepflegt. Der Kontakt zum Besitzer war sehr angenehm, freundlich und herzlich. Alle Fragen vorab und auch während unseres Aufenhaltes wurden promt und kompetent beantwortet. Wir hatten eine wundervolle Zeit in der Villa Palatina und würden sofort wieder zurückkehren. Am liebsten schon ganz bald...:-)

Vielen Dank für die tolle Gastfreundschaft und hoffentlich bis im nächsten Jahr.

Charlotte und Toby A.

Tolles Haus!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zum ersten mal zu Gast in der Villa und es wird nicht der letzte Aufenthalt gewesen sein!!

Die Ausstattung und Einrichtung der Villa entspricht höchstem standart und ist die Garantie für einen entspannten Urlaub.

Cape Coral bietet für jeden Urlaub etwas. Vom Strand bis zu Shopping mal, vom Baseball bis zum Football der örtlichen Highschool. Ich hoffe beim nächsten mal mit dem Boot fahren zu können. Leider wurde dies erst kurz nach unsrem Aufenthalt angeschafft.

Vielen Dank an Herr und Frau Straub für den super netten Kontakt und für diesen Urlaub!
