Satisfied Snowbirds

  • 5 of 5

The five of us greatly enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. It was clean, well located for our needs, and very comfortable. We've stayed in several places through the years; this one ranks as one of the top. Everyone is more than satisfied. Thank you so much....

Good, Not Great

  • 3 of 5

We booked a two week stay at Sungetaway. The owners were very responsive, and the booking and payment process was very easy.


- The house was spacious enough for our family of 5 adults and 2 children

- The pool was small but good for young children (ours are 3 and 1)

- Plenty of pool/beach toys

- Plenty of towels and beach/pool towels

- Kitchen was well supplied


- Upon arrival the house was not very clean - dead bugs on the floor and a baby high chair full of crumbs and food

- The AC was off and the temperature when we arrived was 85F, it took 24 hours for the house to cool

- Phone not working at all - we were given a new phone after 5 days

- Blue Ray player not working - no Netflix - this was never fixed by the owners

- The dryer was not working - it was fixed after 3 days

- The beds are the worst beds ever - the mattresses and pillows are horrible, but the beds themselves are creaky and about to break. The owners even admitted that the master bedroom bed is in bad shape and that we should not try to move it.

- The owners advertised that they had a ipod dock, so we did not bring our own. When we got there and did not find the dock, we asked about it and were told that "no one uses ipods anymore".

- The house is not very child friendly. The dining room table as well as the coffee table and side tables are all glass with sharp corners. We have two young children and we were terrified that they would badly injure themselves on the glass tables.

- The lanai area must of had a hole in the netting because wasps were getting in every day.

- The BBQ is very small for the amount of people we had to cook for.

- While there was unlimited internet, the strength of the WIFI signal in the master bedroom was weak and kept cutting out, so we could not use WIFI in the master bedroom

- There is a alarm that chimes every time a door or window opens. We asked that it be disabled because it bothered our kids during their naps/sleep, but the owners did not oblige


- Publix and Walmart Grocery are a 5 minute drive (there is nothing within walking distance)

- There is not much to do in Cape Coral, you have to go to Fort Myers or further for activities

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your time at Sungetaway as much as our past guests. It is unfortunate that Sungetaway did not meet all of your expectations for the area, but our home is very typical of the area as Cape Coral is largely a single family home city with very limited commercial areas. There are many wonderful beaches, golf courses, wildlife preserves and other attractions nearby, but they definitely require a car to travel too. Our past guests have all had a wonderful experience at our home, but we know that what we offer may not suit everyone’s ideal of a dream vacation, as this appears to be the case for you and your family. We do provide many pictures of the home showing each room and all of the furniture that we have. We have specifically chosen glass tables as they are much more hygienic than wooden ones, which we feel is very important in a vacation home. All of the tables have rounded corners and are tempered glass to ensure safety. Similarly, the chime on the doors is activated for the safety of families as it will chime when the patio doors are opened so you can be aware if a child may be entering the pool area. After 7 years of families enjoying our vacation home, yours is the first family to have raised any concerns. We know that you had some issues at the home when you arrived. We were surprised by the number of problems you encountered as we were at the house ourselves before your arrival and everything was working then (phone, blueRay, Netflix, dryer, etc.). We are not certain what had happened to cause the issues, but we worked to have them fixed as quickly as possible. We work very hard to provide an excellent value for the vacation dollar, and do not charge for many items that are extra in other rental homes, such as extra guests and use of the BBQ. We try to go the extra mile for our guests including providing a full range of amenities for you and your family to enjoy the beach and extras like the seashelling guide in our welcome package. We do hope that your children enjoyed the pool, as this is the most popular feature for families. Thank you for choosing to stay at Sungetaway, and for the honest feedback on your stay.

Great Family Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Stayed mid July with a family of 6 including three teens. Home was clean and exactly as advertised. The rental company and owner were very responsive to our needs and questions. With teens it was great to have a pool for them to crash at and high speed internet to entertain them. The addition of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas and towels made our time at the home feel like we had everything we needed for our time in Cape Coral.

Would definitely recommend!

Our family of 9, two grandparents, four parents, and three children had a great spring break visit at Sungetaway. There was more than adequate room for all. The property has a porta crib and high chair which was great for the 18 month old grandchild and saved needing to bring those items with us. The kids and the adults enjoyed the pool and the lenai. The home is in a very nice area, with easy access to restaurants, grocery, etc. We definitely would stay there again.

Sungetaway was a wonderful vacation home, on the South West corner of CAPE CORAL. The owners & property managers were very helpful in making our 5 week stay as comfortable as staying in our own home. Pool area with large lenai is & waterfall is a great hangout spot.

It's close to food shopping and your choice stores to shop at. Close to restaurants, drug stores and any other shopping, Kolhs,Walmart, Target & Dollar stores.

Also equal distance to SW FLORIDA airport or Punta Gorda's airport.

Recommended, just not the weeks we want
