Here are a few photos taken in mid-January 2020.

We did some upgrades at the beginning of winter:

The original burners in our Bull BBQ, which were already pretty worn out, were replaced by cast iron professional parts. Nothing stands in the way of unlimited barbecue fun again.

Furthermore, the in-house “bike fleet” has been expended by a model our youngest guests might like.

Last but not least, we bought two new, larger, more comfortable kayaks.

End of November, beginning of December is the most pleasant time in terms of temperatures in Cape.

Olivia’s is fully equipped with baby and toddler stuff. Besides of a play yard, a high chair and a troller we even have a car seat which is suitable for ages 1 till 6. You don’t have to bring nothing with you but your kid. (Nov. 2018)

Always sunny in 4310 SW 19th Pl.

For all table tennis fans we have a good news: From now on, Olivia’s House is equipped with a ping pong table, rackets and balls. So if you are not actually relaxing at the pool, watch dolphins on the beach of Sanibel, make a great bike ride or shop you can have tons of fun playing table tennis in the garage!

Can’t get enough of this.

There is nothing better for us than returning to Cape Coral and discover little works of art made by our guests in the house!
We want to say thank you to our fantastic, creative guests!

We did some upgrades focused on our smallest guests and their parents lately. From now on you can explore beautiful Cape Coral by bike together with your kid up to 4 years placed in a child seat attached to one of our bicycles. It is a great fun for both – kid and the parent. Further more, a pool fence can be put in place around the central area of the swimming pool upon request. Please inform us before your arrival if you wish this additional protection.



We are extremly happy to inform you that Olivia’s House suffered zero damages through hurricane Irma.
There are only very minor damages in the whole Cape Coral area, Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers as well.
Schools are going to open on Monday and we are pretty sure that the situation is going to get normal again by the end of the week.
The most of us were very furtunate in Lee County. Our thougts are with our nighbours in Napels and Marco Island area who were hit strong by Irma.

We are very happy how good our plants are doing. Two and half years after CO everything is green around the house.

Not only very great things, such as a wonderful swimming pool or a dock with Captain’s Walk,are important when it comes to quality of the vacation house. The little conveniences also contribute to feeling happy when on vacation. In our latest upgrade enforced this April, we concentrated on these “small issues”:

• From now on, when watching TV in the in the Master-Room,you can enjoy 3D-Soundenhanced by the new 55” – VISIO Sound Bar. You can connect to it all your mobile devices via Bluetooth and enjoy unlimited listening to your favorite music.

• Everyone spending vacations in the U.S.A. often encounters a problem with a compatibility of the plugs and power sockets. With us, such a problem does not exist any longer – from now on, you can charge all your mobile devices in the kitchen, both iOS and Android operating systems. If you have a MacBook, you only need to bring the power supply unit. We will provide a US charging cable.

• Thanks to a new Smoothie Mixer, there are no longer any obstacles to unlimited smoothie pleasure at the touch of a button. It also allows for blending various alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails.

• Last, but not least: Our sports equipment was complemented by two fishing rods in order to enable you to fish in the canal, as well as a second full-size sun umbrella to be used on the beach.

Have fun!


It has been 6 months since Olivia’s House was finished. Most of the plants have developed superbly and have grown neatly. However, because we can never be green enough we have decided on an extensive upgrade to the plants at the front of the house. Over 30 new shrubs and plants of different sizes have been planted and are already pleasing us and our guests with their splendor.

We have made the beach equipment available to our guests for free and added a few new items. As of now, it consists of 4 deck chairs/loungers, a parasol with a stand, a cooler, a variety of swimming aids, a volleyball and a trampoline. Have fun!

We have planted three royal palms on the side of the house which faces the canal. Hopefully they will soon put down their roots and grow splendidly. We are very pleased with this “green” upgrade to the view from both the veranda and from the “captain’s walk”, as well as the shadows that the palms cast.
