“Minnesota connection”

Reviewed 2 Apr 2016

Villa Catalina Isles was our home away from home for 2 months. The location could not be better. The home is spacious with comfortable beds, a huge lanai with a beautiful pool, as well as a boat docking area which is perfect for watching the sunrise on the canal. We especially appreciate the communication we had with the owner, who checked in with us during our extended stay; his management company, BMI, was always available, if/when we needed them. We have already booked again for next year!!!

nach Ãœberwindung des jet-lag kommen wir heute erst dazu ein paar Zeilen zu schreiben. Der Empfang durch BMI in eurem Ferienhaus (gegen 1 Uhr) war sehr hell und musikalisch (Wohnzimmerlicht und tolle Musik) gelungen. Die Räumlichkeiten waren sehr sauber und aufgeräumt. Ganz besonders hat uns der beheitzte Pool gefallen. Unsere Enkelkinder waren wie "fish Kids". Der Ausblick auf den Kanal mit seinem Fischreichtum (sogar Delfine!) war einmalig. Wir haben eine schöne Zeit in eurem Haus erlebt. Herzliche Grüsse von der Watzfamilie.

We traveled from Illinois with two exchange students from the Netherlands and Italy and met friends from Germany for a week in Cape Coral at Villa Catalina Isles. We have done this for the past several years. We found the house to be our most enjoyable stay out of the homes we have stayed in over the years. It was very clean, neat and orderly. The beds were comfortable. Everything worked as described. The location was just off the main street in Cape Coral so restaurants and other stores were all close at hand. We found a wonderful German bakery only three blocks away. The pool was great and the canal behind the house was the cleanest we have seen. Overall, it was a wonderful week and the people at BMI were great to work with. I liked most: The Lania and boat dock. I didn'like that much: ambulances and fire trucks on the main street a block away. Would I recommend this property to my best friend? Yes! Thanks to BMI and Gunnar, John

My wife Mary and I were searching for a waterfront property that included a private pool, but needed it to be pet friendly because we always travel with our princess Nala. Upon approval from Gunnar and Bettina we were able to bring our baby girl. Some people might say that pictures are deceiving, but Villa Catalina is as beautiful as we imagined. The home is very well maintained and very clean. Plenty of room for 3 couples or an entire family. There are plenty of lounging areas both in and outside the lanai. And privacy was never a concern. You don't need to bring a thing, just groceries. All the amenities of home are included. There are plenty of local waterfront restaurants, our favorite was Rum Runners, but there was a very nice one at the yacht club as well. The thing I was most impressed with was the property management company BMI-Homes. They responded immediately to our requests. The lawn and pool service people kept the property in top shape. Additionally, I have been in contact with the owner Gunnar through out the process of booking and returning home from our vacation. He has been very gracious and delightful to deal with on a personal and professional level. If you were to ask me or my wife if we would recommend Villa Catalina for your next vacation, my response would be 100% absolutely yes. The only thing that would have made our vacation better would be if I owned a boat. There are plenty of places to rent a boat/kayak/jet skis etc. Not to mention numerous places to go fishing. Or you can do as I did and just fish of the dock. Either way it was a sun/fun filled vacation. Thank you to Gunnar and Bettina.

Owner's reply: Thank you Louis and Mary, we are glad you enjoyed your stay! Hopefully it was not the last time in Villa Catalina Isles. Best Regards, Gunnar & Bettina

Weihnachten mal ganz anders!

Wir haben uns dieses Jahr dazu entschieden, dem Schmuddelwetter in Deutschland zu entfliehen und in die Sonne zu reisen. Wir, das sind Marion (40), Kilian (15) und ich Franz (46). Dazu haben wir uns entschlossen, meine Eltern (Opa 70, Oma 64) mit einzupacken. Wir kamen am 24.12. so gegen Mitternacht in der Villa an und haben uns sofort heimisch gefuehlt. Die Villa ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und in absolutem Topzustand. Die Ausstattung laesst keine Wuensche offen. Nicht zu vergessen -auch fuer Strandausfluege sind neben genuegend Sonnenschirmen und Strandhandtuechern auch 2 Kuehlboxen vorhanden. Der Pool ist gross genug, um morgens seine Bahnen ziehen und auch mal mit einem Wasserball etwas herumtollen zu koennen. Das schoene daran ist, dass er auch noch beheizt ist.
Die Villa liegt wunderschoen am Kanal mit eigenem Bootsanleger. Einkaufsmoeglichkeiten und Restaurants sind in unmittelbarer Umgebung. Auch ein Baecker, der mit frisch gebackenen Broetchen wartet, ist zu Fuss bequem in etwa 10 min. erreichbar.
Der erste Kontakt nach unserer Anfrage mit dem Vermieter war sehr angenehm und hat uns sofort ein gutes Gefuehl vermittelt.
Wir wissen, das war sicher nicht das letzte Mal...

Empfohlen für: Senioren, Familien mit Kindern, Strandurlaub

Unser Lieblingshaus, wir waren schon oft in diesem Haus. Lage, Umgebung, stimmt einfach alles. Irgendwann buchen wir Catalina wieder und es freut uns, das sie unter neuem Eigentuemer weiterhin bei BMI bleibt. Wir buchen dort schon seit vielen Jahren und es ist jedesmal, wenn wir dort ankommen, wie coming Home. Erstklassiger Service und alles immer In Ordnung, hoffentlich bis bald mal wieder in Catalina Isles, Florida Gruesse,

Our stay at the Villa Catalina Isles was so relaxing and wonderful. The home is beautiful and the Lanai with pool was where we spent most of our time. Great shopping and restaurants so close. Highly recommend it.
