"Wunderschöner Urlaub in einer Wohlfühloase"

Wir dürften im Mai drei herrliche Ferienwochen in diesem wunderschönem Feriendomizil verbringen. Alles war perfekt. Die Einrichtung ist sehr modern, alles ist sauber und man muss sich einfach Wohlfühlen. Das neue DAYBED auf der Terrasse ist herrlich und von dort kann man den fantastischen Blick auf die Palmen und den Kanal genießen. Die in allen Räumen dezent vorherrschende Farbe Türkis wirkt sich auf die Ferienstimmung überaus positiv aus. Kurz zusammengefasst: Ein perfekter Urlaub. Wir waren schon oft in Cape Coral, aber dieses Haus hat uns bisher am besten gefallen. und aufgrunddesssen können wir das THE ILLOURA allen Interessenten wärmstens empfehlen.

We were greeted by a villa that looked axactly as it did in the photos. The bedrooms are clean and spacious and the open plan living area is huge. The owners have left DVD's and you have basic cable TV in the lounge and an iPAD/POD/PHONE stereo system. You also get WiFi which helps with planning days out. Bathrooms were clean with LED rainforest power showers and there was a washing machine/dryer you can use. The kitchen is well equipped.
The pool is a nice size and usually a nice temperature as it is solar headed.There's a dining area and a grill which is a nice spot to escape the sun and have some lunch and 4 sun beds are there to use. Out the back is a canal and you'll often see a boat floating by. Although in a row, the pool area isn't too overlooked as the plot is quite big.
Supermarkets, pharmacies, bakeries, liquor stores etc. are all within 5 min drive. A friendly property manager will pop by and welcome you and is available if anything goes wrong.
I'll definitely be back to the area and hopefully the Illoura!
