About the area

Villa CatCayLake is located on one of the most beautiful lakes in the southeast of the city of Cape Coral, Florida-USA. Through a wide channel this scenic lake gives access to the Caloosahatchee River, which at his turn gives into the Gulf of Mexico. Our villa is also located on the ecological nature park "Four Mile Cove", a beautiful nature reserve with a wealth of tree species, water birds and hiking trails. Both the southeast and southwest of Cape Coral are traditionally the favorite holiday resorts of tourists and nature lovers: Sun, sand and sea go hand in hand with a downright overwhelming area of fauna and flora! The Gulf of Mexico is nearby and shops, warehouses, restaurants and commerces are located in the immediate proximity. River-, sea- and boat lovers will enjoy themselves in Cape Coral: A quiet sail on beautiful CatCay lake and the surrounding channels, on the river and even sailing down to the Gulf belong to the possibilities. At just a 20-minutes drive you will discover the most beautiful beaches of Florida: Fort Myers, Captiva, Pine Island and Sanibel, the famous "shell island". Villa CatCayLake is situated in a traffic-calm neighborhood, right across the most famous nature area of the city. So walking and cycling in all safety will never be a problem. In the Four Mile Cove nature reserve you can go hiking and canoeing. You can also view and admire there the raccoons, alligators and manatees ( kind of native seacow ). The pearly white beaches near the Gulf of Mexico will surely be inviting you for sunbathing, swimming, collecting shells or just for an easy hiking in the great outdoors. And of course, in terms America will always remain America : Just eating a juicy steak or a hamburger in the middle of the night is always possible... And buying bread, milk, meat... in the grocery store for some self-catering is quite common. At a 4 minutes drive from the villa is the supermarket "Walmart": Open 24/24 and 7/7 and has an enormous parking.

“Heerlijke villa, mooie locatie”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2015

Heerlijke ruime villa, van alle gemakken voorzien. Goede property manager die voor een paar kleine vraagjes meteen even langs kwam. 2 supermarkten, banken en andere winkels op loop/ fiets afstand. Ligging aan het cat cay lake geeft een prachtig uitzicht. Een kleine alligator en 3 manatees kwamen op bezoek in het dock voor het huis; fantastisch! Ligging mooi centraal voor bezoek aan bijv Sanibel/Captiva, Fort Myers beach en Down Town, ecoparc Four mile cove is echt om de hoek en leuk voor bezoek of kanotocht. Zelf een deckboat huren is ook makkelijk te regelen en 'great fun' om te doen. Wél een stuk duurder dan de site aangeeft ........(ca $ 300 voor een 'dag' van 9.00 tot 16.00) . De villa is echt een aanrader voor een onbezorgde vakantie.

" Villa CatCayLake " was a dream vacation spot!! There were three generations, grandma, sister & daughters on this trip and a wonderful time was had by all of us. Grandma is already planning for next year. The place is amazing; so clearn and everything you need is close by, grocery, liquor store, Walmart, etc. Fort Meyers Beach and Sanibel Island are very close and make great day trips. We loved your property and hope to use it again someday! Koen, was very helpful; he arrived within minutes of our call. He was very nice and helped us figure how to heat the hot tub/pool. Thank you again for an excellent experience. Kathleen, Alison, Mary and Marilyn, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Christopher Neeld

We really enjoyed our stay here! The neighbors as well as the neighborhood were very inviting. The house was very welcoming and comfortable for 4 adults and 2 children.
A few suggestions:
Some missing measuring ingredients in the kitchen ( we bought some ) and a steel grill brush could be useful too.
We had an absolutely wonderful time and we'll definitely come back some next vacation.
The weather as well as the views on the lake were amazing!

During our stay in our villa, May '14, as suggested we bought additional kitchen furniture: even more cooking pots, a steel BBQ brush... a.s.o.

Our stay at the villa was very pleasant and the view on the lake was beautiful! We saw a few lizards and a turtle. The pool was a very fun place to relax. The house is also very beautifully decorated. During our stay (12/27/13-01/03/14) the weather was very warm. We enjoyed New Years Eve at Universal and it was lots of fun. It can get pretty chilly during the night. We have also enjoyed the beach of Sanibel Island. Florida is such a beautiful place to have vacation in. We will soon return for our next vacation in Florida. We had a wonderful stay here in the villa! Thank you for sharing your beautiful villa and the amazing lake views!

Fam. Karl Rietsche, Dortmund, D.

Wir waren 9 Personen auf Floridarundreise und unser Aufenthalt in der Villa Catcaylake vom 22/07-05.08.2014 war ein absolut unvergessener. Der gesammte Innenbereich, die Zimmer, die Baeder, die Kueche waren absolut sauber und technisch auf dem neuersten Stand. Die Abwicklung bereits im Vorfeld mit den Besitzern Fam. Braeckmans und Vorort mit der Hausverwalter Koen funktionierte perfekt. Die Aussenanlage mit dem Pool und dem Spa war fuer uns eine willkommene Abkuehlung und lud zum ausruhen ein. Der direkte Zugang zu CatCay lake und zum Kanal mit der Bootsanlegestelle war fuer unsere Angler eine Herausforderung den immerhin war der dort ansaessige Alligator eine ernstzunehmende Konkurrenz der uns taeglich besuchte und fuer uns Europaer ein neue Erfahrung war. Wir geben der Villa CatCaylake 100 von 100 Punkten und koennen dieses Haus absolut weiterempfehlen!

My husband and I stayed last August at Villa Catcaylake and it was a marvellous experience: A vacation we'll always remember as one of the very best we ever had!
If our requested week is available, we are planning to stay for a second time next year. That gives an idea how wonderful this rental is! Absolutely.
We have done day trips to Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel, taken the ferry to Key West, and many other places and had this wonderful home to come back to at the end of the day. But my favorite time is spent right there in the pool with its magnificent Southern orientation, in the hottub, lounging on the boatdeck...
Can't wait to return.

Humphrey and Josephine Dombrey-Lagrange

From Sept. 6th until Sept. 13th we had a very pleasant holiday and we left our beautiful holiday home on saturday morning 09/13 with much regret in the heart.
The residential quiet area, the beautiful manicured gardens, the well-kept properties: Whatever we mention, it' s always a 100% positive experience of Cape Coral and our wonderful temporary vacation home Villa Catcaylake:
Here we felt home from day one and thanks to the sublime pool with hot tub, the sunny free holiday feeling was immediately present.
Everything went fine and the proximity (a few minutes by car) of Walmart, Target and Lowe's is a huge plus!
Everything in this beautiful villa was all-right. And how!
Koen of the Property Management Cy is a very skilled and sympathetic organizer. Property Management is functioning clearly well: The lawn was neatly mowed, the trees got their maintenance, the poolguy Kevin (very sympathic too!) came along twice and take good care of the heated pool and jacuzzi. Under the watchful eye of Capt. Manni I got a 2 hour boating initiation: Sure, I needed that! Up to that moment I had only little experience with a boat...
But finally I was successful in my assignment and I was actually quite a bit proud of my exam. Cpt. Manni gave me real nice comments and I quickly learned and felt that I got the Hurricane boat with 150 hp outboard engine "in my hands". The confidence was always there from our first short trip on.
What a great feeling: Capt. Manni's rental boat was outstanding and I even managed to dock her smoothly at my first attempt.
It really is a beautiful boat, a pleasure to go on the river with her!
Of course it was also part of the game - and my personal fun too - to lift the boat out of the water in the evening and cover her up with the boat hoods.
We also made some nice excursions by car: Sanibel, Cape Harbour, Naples Zoo and we also made many bike rides with the nice mountainbikes that we found in the garage.
Shortly: A wonderful holiday to remember!
"We enjoyed every single second of it!"
And next year we'll try to return to the marvellous villa Catcaylake:
No doubt about that, we love this place!

We stayed in the villa from 22/7/14 until 29/7/14 and we had a lovely time here! It is the best villa we have ever stayed in and we will definitely come back in the near future. ( Nilly )
Enjoyed celebrating our son's 18th birthday here. ( Marie )
We have had such a great time! Thank you very much, can't wait to come back here again. ( Beth )
Perfect villa, could just do with some pool- and spa heater instructions. The property manager came and showed us how to use it the next day following a phonecall.
We will be back! X

This pool is so awesome, I could swim forever!
Don't forget there's a button by the hot tub: turn it on.

Reply written by Marcus Braeckmans at 2014-11-02:
From now on controls of jacuzzi and pool are fully digitalised and operating by remote control... no need to turn on any button by the hot tub anymore! :)



My name is Eva and I'm 36 y.o.
I've just spent 2 lovely weeks in this beautiful villa. The moment I stept inside, I loved just everything about it: First of all the wonderful view of course! Also the nice romantic swimming pool and all of the lounge chairs and lanai furniture.
I enjoyed sitting, reading and relaxing at the boatdock very much. What I also loved was the sofa: So soft and comfortable and the large flatscreen TV, really nice...
Kitchen and all of the equipment: perfect! All rooms: super!
Neighbourhood: So calm and wonderful!
I'd love to come back very soon here together with my husband and our 2 daughters.
I wish everyone all the best there is in life.
Big big huggggggs, kisses from

The house was very good, just as pictured.
The view was great indeed.
There are just a few remarks:
- Supply toilet paper and handsoap ( even hotels supply it )
- Supply propane for the grill
- We didn't find baking sheets ( baking paper )
- Supply a few extra beach chairs and a cooler box

Besides of those minor remarks we just loved the house and its location: In one word "wonderful". We'd definitely recommend it and we'll certainly come back!

Reply from the owner:

Toilet paper as well as handsoap are provided at the start of each new rental. We're very sorry if that wasn't the case and we'll take this up with our property manager.
Propane for the grill is not included and has to be supplied by the tenant ( as clearly mentioned in our rental agreement ).
Baking sheets will be available from now on.
A beach cooler is already available ( it's in the garage ) and beach chairs will be purchased asap.

Brent and Corry King, Ohio

We loved the house and our stay here!
The housemanager was very accomodating at check-in and the neighbours were just great.
The location was very convenient as we could walk to the stores if we choosed to do so.
It was just a perfect vacation for my husband, myself and our 3 children! Even my parents came over visiting us for a couple of days and they also loved the villa and surroundings very very much!

The White-Adams family

We largely enjoyed the heated pool and jacuzzi during our stay.
The views were fantastic and we spent most of our time enjoying the pool and lounging. Pool instructions given by the villa manager were very helpful and clear.
Kudos also on the well-stocked kitchen: We found just everything we possibly needed! Also the additional seating in the pool area was great.
Nice quiet neighbourhood and we enjoyed walking.
Thank you for a great vacation!
Note: A bureau in the ( superb! ) masterbedroom could be helpful. Just a hint...

Jane Gallant ( party of 5 people )

A great place: Nice and quiet and very relaxing!!

This is our third time renting a vacation villa from Koen Roelens and this one is the very best location + home: Absolutely.
We bought some extra beachchairs and left them in the garage. We also left toilet paper and paper towels, soap and shampoo, some coffee etc.
Fishing off the dock was great and we also had a nightly visit from " Wally ", the alligator at the dock!
Everything was excellent and we also highly recommend Peta's Fish on del Prado Bld.: Best in town!
Fords Garage was also an experience and Del Prado Steak house was not bad at all. Ask for Amra... she was excellent! :)

We hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad in deze prachtige villa en mooie omgeving.
Het bezoek van de alligator en 3 manatees aan het dock maakten het feest compleet!
Wij zonden eveneens een zeer positieve review in via Tripadvisor.
