Comfortable, Idyll by the Small Lake

Waterfront Lehigh Acres resort in Joel with outdoor tennis court
When you enter the house, you will feel at home. If you have the evening eingechaltet the exterior and pool lighting, it looks like enchanted. We immediately fell in love with the house. With the three bedrooms, the two bathrooms, the spacious living room with a dining and living room. a study corner, the guest toilet and the open kitchen - equipped with completely new appliances - it can accommodate up to six guests. Whether you are sitting on the elegant, private terrace overlooking the spacious pool, lake and natural reserve with the many birds, or swimming in the crystal clear waters of the pool (heated with solar energy and in winter also with electricity) Whether cooking alone or cooking in the open-plan kitchen, watching TV, reading or playing games in the open-plan kitchen, or relaxing in your cozy "bedroom" or enjoying the spacious bathrooms - you'll just be comfortable. For necessary paperwork we have set up a quiet study area. Wireless internet is available, of course, the house is fully furnished. Stove, Refrigerator, Sink, Dishwasher, Coffee Machine Washing Machine. Dryers are brand new. Bedding, towels, dishes, TV, air conditioning - everything is there. Incidentally, we bought the house until 2016 and be fully renovieen. From "Lakeview" you can reach many Attraktioen Florida comfortably. The huge outlets (all major brands are there) will allure the enjoyment full shopping. Our very friendly Verwalterehepaar (languages: German and English) will help you immediately, if necessary.

5/5 Excellent

My stay at "Lakeside"
House was awesome, just as described!! Georg(owner) was very accommodating. I had originally booked Sept 30-Oct 5th, but our travels brought us into town 2 days early. I worked out a deal for $100 cash to get in early!! Lyndsey the property manager was AWESOME too, she checked in daily to see if we needed anything. This house provided EVERYTHING needed for our my stay. Laundry soap, paper towels, dishwasher pods, toilet paper, tin foil, typically I buy this stuff but they had it all!! We had and issue with the hot tub and pool not heating and Georg and Lyndsey were on it right away, had it fixed next day. I was traveling for my sons baseball tournament. I booked the property as a 1 person occupancy, immediately the owner Georg questioned that. I explained that I would have my son with me a couple nights to stay, then he was required to stay with his team. Georg was good with that, I also explained that I was going to be having be having a couple of the families over for dinner and drinks. Well 1 of the families had too much to drink so I offered 1 of the bedrooms(there were 3 and I only needed 1) well unannounced to me Georg had sent the property manager over to SPY on me. He saw that they had stayed and told me if people want to get drunk stay at a hotel, my house is not a drunken party place!! Wow, sorry for keeping someone off the roads and possibly killing themselves or someone else. In the end we decided I would pay $100 cash, which I was more then happy to do to keep someone off the roads!!

1/5 Terrible

A Lesson Learned
The night we arrived at the home, it was filthy, including feces in the toilet. We emailed the owners immediately. In the morning we further discovered there were ants in the kitchen, as they found their way in our cereal boxes. The owners sent us an email asking us to contact the property manager. We did, and when the property manager came, she agreed it was filthy and took us to another home. We contacted the owners about receiving a refund (we hadn't even stayed 24 hours). Apparently, the property manager lied to them about the conditions of the home (even though she was the one who sent us to another home). We explained everything to the owners and sent them pictures, and they agreed the home was dirty. To this day, we still have not received a refund.

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay!
The property was just as listed! Very clean and spacious! We had a great time visiting family! The pool was great fun for our granddaughter to enjoy! Plan to rent again!

3/5 Okay

Amazing pool
When we arrived we had a little trouble. Someone has changed the code to the key box and didnt let the owners know. It seemed as if it wasnt quite ready for us as well. It was a little dustier than I would have liked. It also had alot of ants. But overall we had a good time and loved the pool

4/5 Good

Really enjoyed our stay
We really enjoyed our stay at Ursula's house in Lehigh Acres. We are two retired couples and the property suited us well. It is spacious and gave us our own space when we wanted privacy while also wonderful opportunities to enjoy time together. The house was great but could use some minor maintenance repairs. We especially enjoyed the heated pool and hot-tub, all protected by a Lanier covering. We spent most of our time outside basking in the sunshine. The house is very private on a very large lot and no neighbours in the back. Instead there is a pond and some wildlands. My brother-in-law was disappointed that he couldn't find any fish in the pond. The Lehigh Acres community itself is made up primarily of very large lot properties but seems to have very little else to offer. The beaches and significant commercial areas are more than 30 minutes away.
