We really enjoyed the home right there by the beach. There was plenty of room for us. All the amenities we needed were included. Thanks for a great vacation!
Flamingo Beach House
To the owner,
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beach house.
We stayed over Christmas and had a amazing time. The house is exactly how it is described, the only exception to that is that the picture of the beach access from the deck does not give enough credit to the wonderful view. We absolutely love the beach cottage feel. We would definitely return to this house and I will be telling my friends and family about it also. The house has all the amenities that we needed and expected. It had a brand new patio set and a table and chairs we ate breakfast, lunch and some dinners at. Plenty amount of beach towels and beach equipment. Our contact person was Kim. She is a rockstar, absolutely over the top phenomena! She was very quick to responded if we had any questions and she checked in on us to make sure everything was going fine. For example when we first arrived at the house and got unpacked we noticed there was no water in the house. With in maybe 5 or 10 minutes Kim had it fixed. We thought she was a little magical! Knowing Kim was there if we needed was reassuring.
The only little negative was when I was first trying to reserve the house the owner had a problem with how big my service dog was (55-60 pounds). I offered three other references from other houses we rented in the past. The owner had “zero interest“ in other places we rented. Instead he wanted a letter from my employer stating my service animal does come to work with me. I understand some people may claim to have a service animal when it is just a pet. Once we sent in the letter from my employer, paid the security deposit and fee for the service animal, all was fine. That was only one little hiccup which was quickly resolved. To my own fault I got confused on emailing back and forth on which email to use, the home away email or his personal email so some emails did not go through. For that I take full responsibility for and apologize.
We would love to return to this beach house and highly recommend it because of the location, the house itself and most definitely Kim, the magical rockstar!
Nice place as advertised. Located directly on the beach access.
Met all expectations! Awesome place and spot on the beach. Cant wait to go vack.
Don't hesitate to book this place!
A very enjoyable week
The property was exactly as described. A very relaxing and enjoyable week. Everything we needed was already there. Would definitely consider vacationing here again
Its 5:00 Somewhere
It was a very much a summer cottage. As advertise close to the water... walking distance . The beach was beautiful and Quiet. The house was roomy enough for 4 adults and 2 children. Sunsets were amazing .. However. one of the bathrooms shower was broken...... and that was a problem,.. The shades dash /window treatments were not working or functioning properly so we did not touch those. which was inconvenient at times.... There was a large construction site across the street and that was very loud all day... Naps were out.. There was also road construction going on , on the main road so getting anywhere was a challenge. Fort Meyers was a very busy place ... with the Thomas Edison festival going on. All in all it was as advertise ... I would stay there again but ask a lot of questions first.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay- yes the island is busy in the month of February... everyone - just like yourselves are trying to get to paradise. The construction you spoke of was a neighbor installing a new driveway (temporary construction) The shower works fine! Showers work perfectly - you didn’t listen to me when I explained how to operate them. You were difficult from the start - bad communication!! You rented an oxygen machine there and didn’t return it to the company- I had to take care of that!
It appears you were at fault here-
If you didn't want to hear the pavers being laid you could have closed the windows.
