“Perfect December Escape”
Reviewed 20 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

For the second year in a row we have 'escaped' the early Canadian winter for a week at this absolutely perfect location. Spectacular Gulf/Island views from this sixth floor elevation. Wonderful private beach immediately in front along with great pool and hot tub. Immaculate and well appointed condo with lots of room. Owners Monika and Klaus have looked after every detail in the best German traditions of accommodation. Location is secluded in a nature preserve but shares facilities of adjacent Marriott Resort......best of both worlds. Easy access to Ft Myers, beaches and Sanibel Island. We plan to be back next year!

“Perfect condo for a wonderful vacation”
Reviewed 1 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed one week in Bay View Condo in October 2015.

Clarification on any question as well as alignment on booking process, international wiring was very easy, both by Email and Phone.

We were welcomed personally by Monika and Klaus. First impression: WOAHH: The door opens and allows a fantastic view on the large window front, behind the sea, boats and islands. One immediately knows that this was the right choice. A feeling which stays for the complete week.

The condo is very clean, top equipped, especially the kitchen. Many things which you have to buy somewhere else are already there (salt, pepper, coffee, sharp knives, welcome champagne, small snack). This allows for relaxed arrival. WLAN is fast and stable. Enough towels are there. Checking on site including deposit 100% seriously managed.

On site pool is sufficient and mostly quiet. It allows a nice view on the area to watch ospreys, dolphins, herons, pelicans and fishermen. People at the pool were friendly and open for a nice chat.

Food: Steak house around the corner is excellent, but not cheap. In general I think the area Cape Coral is higher priced compared to St Petersburg/St Pete’s Beach, which you clearly notice in prices for Steaks and Seafood. Pizza in hotel is good, but the ground is more a tortilla. Our pizza recommendation would be Mona Lisa Pizza, College Pkwy.

What can you do? The condo is connected to the hotel, which gives options and allows for variety of pools. Sanibel directly next, 20min to Ft Meyers beach offering wildlife and a fantastic view to the bridge and the Condo itself. Everything possible around water activities, mini gold at smugglers cove or jungle golf. So many things to do, that we couldn’t manage to do everything before the week have passed.

It was also a perfect place to stay for our 5 years old son, too, who learned swimming in the on-site pool. So it’s definitely a place to remember.

We can definitely recommend the condo. We think about whether it is a good idea to do so, as it might be fully booked we want to stay there next time .

We want to thank Monika and Klaus for allowing us to stay in this wonderful place. We hope to be able to come back next time we have the chance to visit Florida.

Until then, best regards from Southern Germany, Iris, Alex and Dominik.

Extremely clean and maintained, well stocked with every amenity that you could ever need. Monika and Klaus obviously take pride in their property. Parking was convenient, screened in porch was excellent (no bugs!), walking trails, private beach (with dolphins), pool / hot tub with no "morning race" for chairs, etc. It was so nice to have the traditional coffee, detergent, trash bags, beach towels etc. supplied. We felt as if we were staying at a friend's house. They even supplied a high chair and baby toys for our 2 year old daughter! Thanks so much :)

Very clean and well decorated condo. Beautiful views of the Caloosahatchee River emptying into San Carlos Bay. We saw a manatee (unusual for this time of the year), rays and dolphins. Quiet! Restful! Close to a nice grocery store. Had a slight problem one evening, but Monika & Klaus were right there is get it corrected. We have rented a number of condos over the years and by far this one had the most engaged owners to make certain everything was correct , most clean and exceeded expectations.

“Our Favorite Winter Escape”

In 2014, we were incredibly fortunate to meet Monika and Klaus and enjoy their beautiful condo. We immediately signed a contract for 2015 and once again had a wonderful time! There is no doubt that this is the most well appointed and meticulously maintained unit that we have ever encountered. From the welcome basket of snacks and refreshments, to the well equipped kitchen and the beautiful location this is the perfect location for a trip to Fort Myers/Sanibel. Monika and Klaus are wonderful to work with, make the rental process as easy as possible and treat us like friends. The condo is even more beautiful than the pictures, the view from the lanai is exceptional and you have access to a private pool, hot tub and beach—not to mention the Marriott Resort next door. The beaches, shells, shops and restaurants of Sanibel Island are minutes away. Rent this unit and spend some time in paradise. We have already reserved our next visit for 2016 and hope to visit Monika and Klaus for many years to come!!
