Nigel Hubble – Villa Owner

“Beautiful villa with everything we needed. Pool great, fishing not as good during day and weather very hot!

Thank you for helping us have a lovely relaxing holiday.”

Stuart & Jenni Grant, Manchester UK – April/May 2010

“Had a lovely time at villa. Weather has been lovely, and the villa has everything you could want. Enjoyed fishing off dock and laying in pool.”

Davidson Family, Dundee, Scotland – April 2010

“We had a lovely, quiet, restful holiday – even the weather behaved itself. Without a doubt this is the best equipped villa we have been in and we’ve been in lots. However, we agree with the above family – more towels and a change of sheets would be desirable.”

Ian & Celia Howden and Dougal & Carolyn Baxter, North Yorkshire, UK – April 2010

More Testimonials: “We have really enjoyed our time here. The house is just great and so well equipped. I appreciated how you have supplied everything needed in the kitchen – good pots & pans. Could have used a few more towels! Thanks.”

Terry & Johann Larson, Minneapolis, Minnesota – March 2010

“The wedding was a fairytale come true. Beautiful, just like this home. Villa was everything we needed and more. Thank you. If we come back this way, we will definitely book here.”

Vic Podmilschak, Debi and the Family, Ontario, Canada – March 2010

“Thank you for an excellent and relaxing “alternative” Christmas & Ne Year. Missed all the snow at home! Villa very comfortable and well-equipped and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Food at Captain’s Table, Jacks and River City Grill all good.”

Angela Edwards & Maurice Bates, North Yorkshire, UK and

Catherine Edwards-Greedy & Steve Greedy, Nottingham, UK – December 2009/January 2010

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Each time we come to ‘Tropicana’ we enjoy it more. This is our 4th trip, we just get lazier as we just love the pool, the dock and the lanai. Just like home from home but this is much, much larger. Thank you Nigel and Susann.”

Great Villa - Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

Once again another enjoyable stay at this well equipped villa. Property clean to a high standard and well maintained.If you should have a problem Joan is always on hand and very prompt with dealing with things. Pool is solar heated and great for a dip anytime of the day or night. Fishing off the dock is enjoyable with sheepshead, snappers , catfish and some very large black drum. If you don't fish the dock is a nice place to sit and just watch the day go by and the sun go down in the evening. Shops and restaurants a few minutes away. Just a short drive and you are at beaches and shopping malls. The villa and Punta Gorda is just perfect for a nice quiet vacation.

Our favorite vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have just book our third year in a row at the Villa. It is spotless, roomy, and extremely comfortable. It is in a great location- close to Fort Meyers and we make a trip to Busch Gardens from the Villa as well. The owners are prompt and very organized. Your family will love their stay!
