“August Week Long Stay!”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2016

We rented this wonderful home for a week and included the boat which we rented for several days as well. What made our stay so great was Margo and her husband worked with us on our days we needed not only on the home but the boat too! The view from the lanai and dock looking down the canal was fantastic. I would recommend this home to everyone.

Owner's reply: Dear Scott, It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Palm Grove and look forward to seeing you in the future. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. Regards, Earl and Margo

“Great Vacation home”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2016

We really enjoyed the stay we had here in this home. It's right on the water, close to the river and has everything needed for a great vacation spot. The owners are very pleasant and live local and are available anytime needed. I plan to return so don't take my date. 8-) Enjoy!

Owner's reply: Dear Ron, It was a pleasure meeting you and your family and we’re glad you enjoyed your time together. We’re glad that we could accommodate your needs allowing you to bring your own boat and using our docking facilities. We are looking forward to your return visit. Thank you for your business and for taking the time to pass along your comments. Regards, Earl & Margo Stafford

We have rented houses in the Cape Coral area for years. This stay was by far the best to date. Margo an Earl;s attention to detail is unparalled and their hospitality outstanding!!! From the minute you enter the villa the layout is perfect. Then you walk to the slider overseeing the canal view. We used the patio, pool area, and dock nearly 90% of our stay overlooking tjhe canal. The area is very quiet and relazing. Access to restaurants, stores are minutes away. We look forward to returning in the future!!!! Leslye and Cliff

Owner's reply: Dear Cliff and Leslye, It was a pleasure meeting you and sharing time. We're happy that you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed all the amenities. I loved shopping with Leslye so be prepared for next time! Thank you for taking the time to write this great review. Looking forward to your next visit. Earl and Margo

“Our home away from home.”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2014

We have just enjoyed 3 months in this beautiful home, we call our paradise. The owners go over and above with every amenity needed. The location is ideal and the magnificent view of the wide canal and sunrise in the morning is worth waking up for, not to mention the dolphins. Thank you Margo and Earl for allowing us to stay in your home the last 5 years.

Owner's reply: Thanks Mike and Linda The past five years have been great looking forward to the next five. Earl & Margo

“A Piece of Heaven”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2014

We fell in love with this home from the moment we stepped through the door. The home is lovely and well taken care of. The views are stunning. It's the perfect spot to wake up each morning, jump in the pool, and then spend the day on the water. The location is moments from the river and beaches. The home is well appointed and in excellent condition. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We spend at least two weeks each year at this property. When we leave, we are planning the return. This is truly a little piece of Heaven.

Owner's reply: Thanks Liz Always great to have you and Chris come back this will be your 5th year.. Looking froward to seeing you again.Stay warm. Earl & Margo

Another enjoyable stay. Love the changes Earl and Margo have made. Made good use of the new boat! Saw lots of dolphins this year. Will be sad to leave, but hopefully will return next year.

Thank you so much for making our stay in your beautiful villa so wonderful. This was not a house, it was a home with all the thoughtful details and pretty Christmas tree. We cannot thank you enough. The location wonderful and the view breathtaking. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the boat.

Had a great time. Everything perfect - sunshine everyday. The boat was good and we visited all the islands. Seeing the Dolphins every day was quite special. The days passed too quickly! Surely the days here must be shorter than home! This was our 3rd. trip to Cape Coral and we will be back for a 4th.

We've had there great holidays in Cape Coral but this has been by far the best! House, boat and view all fantastic.
Great host and boat captain. Earl's attention to detail is second to none.
We had some great boat trips to Sanibel, North Captiva and Cabbage Key including tasty lunches at local restaurants.
Saw dolphins nearly every day and made good use of the pool and lanai.
What more could we ask for?
Thanks to Earl and Margo for a fantastic holiday.
