Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We spend two weeks in this beautiful house and since we had a lot of rain during our vacation we were even more happy that this place had it all. Especially the outdoor kitchen with a fantastic grill we used almost every day/night while our son was playing in the pool or watching german internet TV. To watch the sundown almost every night was so awesome.

Everything is clean and the description says it all. The location is just excellent, close to everything.The owners are so nice and every time we had questions there was a quick an friendly response. We certainly are going to recommend the Villa Sunshine to our friends and family and who knows....maybe we will be there again, too :-)

A Slice of Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three relaxing weeks at Sunshine Villa in June 2014. We were immediately delighted with the house and all of it's facilities - the house exceeded our expectations. We immediately felt very comfortable and safe at Sunshine Villa which is located in a quiet gated community at the end of Winkler Road. This helped to make our holiday even more relaxing. The house was well maintained and cleaned – it is bright and modern with excellent facilities, all that you will need and more!

The location of the house is superb with beaches (such as Fort Myers Beach and Barefoot Beach) and shopping malls (Miromar Outlets and Coconut Point) located just a quick drive away. Supermarkets, pharmacy, etc are only minutes away (for Publix and CVS just drive up Winkler Road).

We especially loved the pool area, and the outdoor kitchen area was so convenient (cool beers and wine always close at hand!). The view over the lake as the sun sets in the evening was marvelled at many evenings by our family. The support and help given is also another thing to be mentioned.

At Fort Myers Beach, make sure to pay a visit to Nervous Nellie’s, where the portions are generous and the live music great.

Using one of the many brochures in the house, we arranged to hire a boat from a nearby company. It was such a great day admiring the spectacular waterfront houses as we passed by, a quick dip followed by a leisurely picnic on the white sands of Lover Key – highly recommended.

In all our years in Florida this was our first year being personally welcomed to our villa, which added a well admired and appreciated personal touch - thank you Petra.

Overall our stay was a very relaxing and very enjoyable experience. The service provided is five star. Many thanks to Ronald & Nana. We are certainly planning to make a return visit to Sunshine Villa.

Marvelous Ft Myers "Oasis of Tranquility"!

  • 5 of 5

My wife Judith and I just returned from a wonderfully enjoyable and relaxing two week vacation in the greater Ft Myers area, while making the Villa Sunshine our "home away from home!" Although we have rented VRBO properties on the Monterey Peninsula, St Thomas-USVI, Savannah-GA, and Charleston-SC, the "Villa-Sunshine" was, by far, our favorite property to date!

Before our arrival, communication with the owners and the property custodian was personable, prompt, and very clear! Upon our arrival, we found the home and property to be meticulously immaculate and clean, and very tastefully appointed! The view and amenities on the rear patio/sparkling pool/spa area ALONE make this property worthy of

the description of a "tranquil oasis and vacation paradise!"

The listing description/posted photographs are extremely accurate, and the entire property is exactly as depicted and described! The bed in the Master Bedroom (the only one we used) was most comfortable, and the elegant master bathroom was exquisite!

There is absolutely nothing in this wonderful home that is not provided for the comfort and enjoyment of the guests!

We enjoyed the peace and quiet afforded by both this home and the beautiful surrounding neighborhood of which it is a part! Daily walks were most enjoyable!

The property is very close to Ft Myers Beach (15 minutes by car) and Sanibel Island (20 minutes). It is centrally located to wonderful shopping/dining/consignment stores/recreation in Estero/Bonita Springs (30 Minutes) and the gorgeous city of Naples to the south (40 minutes)!

Favorite Discoveries for the two of us included: Shelling on Sanibel Island, South Beach Grill, Nervous Nellie's, and Parrot Key Grill on Ft Myers Beach, Cantina Laredo (Mexican) in Ft Myers, and Bice's on 5th Avenue in Naples! Absolute Favorite was "Sweet Tomatoes"

(Unlimited/Diverse/Fresh Soup/Salad Bar) Restaurants located in Ft Myers, Bonita Springs, and Northern Naples!

Delightful Shopping at Gulf Coast Town Center, Coconut Point, Miromar Outlets, and many "small malls" located off of US 41 as one passes thru Estero/Bonita Springs/Naples!

We would most highly recommend the Villa Sunshine to anyone to enjoy a most delightful and exquisite vacation experience! We are already booked next year...but this time for ONE month! ...We can't wait to return to paradise! Many thanks to the owners and the custodian, for the privilege of making "Villa Sunshine" available and so very special!

This villa is everything and more you could ever wish for to have the perfect holiday in Florida it's as lovely as it looks in the photos. Its location is stunning and the villa is in such a peaceful, relaxing and a tranquil environment, to wake up and spend time with the lake view is immensely enjoyable.

The community and it's gardens are very well maintained and also the neighbours always give you a friendly wave.

Villa sunshine is also maintained to a very high standard, beautifully decorated and very very clean, and it has everything in it that you could possibly need.

The villa's location has everything very close by e.g. shops, beaches, restaurants and connections to the main interstates if you want to go exploring a little further. Naples is only an hour away on interstate 75 and is worth a visit another beautiful place and has another beautiful beach with a great pier for fishing and dolphin watching.

The owners are very nice and communication with them was very easy.

Also a very big thankyou to Petra who at our meet and greet on our arrival made us feel so very welcome and at home.

We will definately be telling and recommending this beautiful and luxurious villa to all our family and friends and would without hesitation return to enjoy another Florida holiday here at the 'Villa Sunshine'.

Thankyou so much for sharing the Villa Sunshine with us and helping us to have a memorable holiday.

With many kind regards

Mark and Sandra from England

Es ist immer wieder ein spannender Moment, das erste Mal bei der ausgewählten Ferienvilla anzukommen. Wird auch alles so sein, wie man es sich für einen gelungenen Urlaub wünscht und es sich ausgemalt hat? Diese erwartungsfrohe Spannung stellt sich trotz bisher ca. 20 angemieteter Häuser bei uns immer wieder ein. Die meisten von Ihnen kennen wohl dieses Gefühl.

NUN.... bei dieser Villa sind solche Gedanken nicht nötig und Sie dürfen sich auf Ihren Urlaub dort einfach nur freuen! Sie betreten das top gereinigte Haus (danke Frau Niedermair), gehen durch den großzügigen offenen Wohnraum zu den großen Terrassenschiebetüren, ziehen den Lamellenvorhang zurück .... WOW.... dieser Ausblick, diese Weite, dieser wunderbare Pool. In der kleinen gated community "Southwind" liegt die Villa auf dem besten Seegrundstück. Selbst im Januar hatten wir Sonne von morgens bis Sonnenuntergang.

Die Ausstattung des Hauses lässt keine Wünsche offen; dies wurde in den anderen Bewertungen bereits ausführlich beschrieben und dem können wir uns nur anschließen. Ein Wort zur Außenküche: normalerweise grillen wir nicht, da uns Gasgrills zu umständlich sind. Doch der supereffiziente fest eingebaute Elektrogrill (mit Dunstabzug nach draußen) ist ideal, lässt sich prima reinigen und die Steaks schmecken einfach köstlich. Einkaufen kann man ganz praktisch im nahe gelegenen und gut sortierten Publix oder im The Fresh Market !! in den Bell Tower Shops.

Der Poolbereich ist wunderschön zum Träumen und Relaxen, so dass man sich ab und zu ermuntern muss, auch anderen Aktivitäten außerhalb der Villa nachzugehen. Der Infinity Pool ist traumhaft und wir hätten ihn gerne intensiver genutzt. Jedoch scheint um diese Jahreszeit mit Solarenergie unsere persönliche Wohlfühlschwimmtemperatur nicht leicht erreichbar zu sein.

Kurzum: wir haben uns in den drei Wochen superwohl gefühlt, so dass wir für das kommende Jahr bereits wieder gebucht haben. Danke Familie Kropp für Ihre Unterstützung in dieser Angelegenheit.

Traumvilla verhalf zum Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben schon viele Villen in Florida gemietet. Aber.....die Sunshine-Villa war bisher die beste!! Es waren wundervolle 14 Tage und wir waren nach den Ausflügen immer wieder froh, in unser schönes "zuhause" heimzukehren. Nicht zuletzt auch der liebevollen Betreuung von Fr. Niedermair geschuldet.

Die Villa bot alles, was zu einem entspannten Aufenthalt beitrug.

Liebevolle Einrichtung en detail, Sauberkeit, Ausstattung, Komfort....was das Herz begehrte.

Die traumhafte Lage sowie der einzigartige Pool ließ keine Wünsche offen.

Ich würde jedem Florida-Reisenden diese Villa wärmstens ans Herz legen. Besser kann man nicht "residieren".

Vielen Dank an die Familie Kropp sowie an den guten "Hausgeist", Fr. Niedermair.
