Owner Supplied Testimonials

Giovanna - Florida
June 2015

We had a great time staying at The Sleepy Turtle. The owner was very kind in guiding us to the house. He provided us with all the necessary details to settle down after traveling. The house was extremely beautiful and very cozy. It had all the necessary supplies needed to spend a nice vacation. The pool was nice to relax after visiting and traveling along the city. The neighborhood was quite and not very populated which made it possible to have a wonderful time with family members. Overall, we had an amazing time and will be definitely be coming back in the future. Highly recommended!

The house was beautiful, it had all the necessary supplies for a nice vacation. The pool was one of the best features as the entire family was able to relax after traveling.

We couldn't have asked for a better host. They were extremely welcoming and easy to communicate.

They did return for another stay in December 2015

This is a spacious and beautifully furnished home in a quiet residential area. As described, if not better, with all soaps, towels and detergents included to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The pool area is not overlooked and has a great outlook with the chance to see wildlife along the canal. The owners were friendly and helpful whenever we contacted them. Highly recommended!

Margaret - Hawaii
November 2015

This is a wonderful home to relax in and feel the comfort of beautiful surroundings. Everything is top of the line. It is nice to be away from traffic noise and yet still close enough to Cape Coral restaurants and shopping.

I would suggest basics of shampoo and maybe body lotion I the bathrooms. We all know how hard it is to travel with liquids. Also since there is no DVD player.

After reviewing our guests review, we now also provide shampoo, conditioner, and lotion; as mentioned in later reviews. We also purchased a DVD for the living room television.

Daniel - Minnesota
December 2015

Everything went very smoothly. We had everything we needed and more. Everything was clean and comfortable and very private. We felt at home and didn't want to leave! The wildlife was so much fun to see, especially the little ground owls across the street. Everything in the house was just as described, perhaps even nicer. The home owners were very kind and hospitable anytime we had questions and gave us very prompt responses. We absolutely loved our experience here! We highly recommend staying and will definitely be back!

Great house for family vacation. Large spacious rooms and a great pool and grill. Terry and Patty were very helpful with information and suggestions. Always very responsive. They had everything we needed at the house like shampoo and soaps and lotions. Our children loved the pool area and the canal just behind the house. Location was just as described in a quiet neighborhood and easy drive to the beaches. We will be back.

Gregory - Missouri
January 2016

Very secure property that made us feel very safe. The house was beautiful and well kept. Enjoyed the pool and the view behind the house overlooking the canal. Spacious rooms. We had 7 adults including 5 children ages 18-25 and we still felt as though everyone had their own space. The house is located a bit rurally but we could get to any beach within 20-30 minutes. The kitchen was also very nice with a great set of utensils and up to date kitchen ware. My wife actual said she was having appliance envy. We thought it was a fabulous house. Thanks

The beautiful home. The quiet neighborhood. We thought it was perfect.

Elizabeth - Pennsylvania
January 2016

Sleepy Turtle gave us a perfect place to share time & fun with our kids & their mates. The home is equipped with everything we needed in kitchen, bath & laundry. Owners have thought of everything. Decor is lovely & functional. Weather wouldn't allow for swimming in the pool or outdoor eating but that enclosed area is very inviting. All & all we were very pleased with this lovely vacation home.

Beautiful home in a quiet location. All of the amenities provided made for a convenient rental. This spacious property made being cooped up due to bad weather tolerable. Thanks for being such gracious hosts!

Nancy - Wisconsin
March 2016

This was our first family vacation in many years and The Sleepy Turtle was the perfect choice. The home is beautiful, updated, clean and a dream to rent. We had a couple of minor things that needed to be tended to while we were there and Terry was very prompt to respond. We enjoyed having our own pool and the canal added to the privacy of this property. The home is very aptly named as we saw several turtles swimming in the canal during the time we were there. Because it's a quiet neighborhood it was easy to go for morning walks (or runs) and not be too concerned about traffic. Our children (and grandchildren) all agreed they'd like to return for another family vacation. Thank you Terry and Patty!

I loved just about everything about this house. Loved the quiet, the privacy and large master suite. We had a great time and I dreaded leaving.

Kevin and Sue - Wisconsin
May 2016

Terry and Patty made us feel very welcome. The sleepy turtle worked very well for us as my son and his family are within 15 minutes away. They take very good care of their property as we expected, and we really appreciated that as well. The Sleepy Turtle felt very private and very comfortable mattresses to sleep on as well. This is our first time to Cape Coral and we will definitely come back to visit again!! Kevin and Sue Wisconsin

The privacy was great as well as the property. My mom kept commenting on how comfortable her mattress was as Sue and I felt the same about ours.
