Cottage Charmer

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect little gem for our Spring break week. Two mothers and two teenage girls. Great common space and very nicely appointed.Wonderful DVD collection as well! The owners have obviously put a lot of thought into their renters needs. Perfect location on FMB. Easy trolley ride for the teenagers to go downtown and only a short 5 min. walk for all of us to an almost empty beach everyday! Also only a 2min. drive to large groceries store. Highly recommend this unit to anyone looking to have a peaceful if you want and party if you need time in Fl. Lot's of close restaurants with happy hour specials as well. The owners were wonderful to work with and we will be renting again!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing month. This was one of the best vacations we have had. The home was furnished beautifully and the owners thought of every possible need. They are wonderful people and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable.

We loved sitting in the screened area each morning with our coffee. What a way to start the day. There is lots to do and see. The beach is great, not crowded at all. We highly recommend the doggie beach if you have a pet.

There are lots of great restaurants on and off the beach. If seafood is not your thing just about every chain restaurant is in the Ft. Myers area. If you like to shop there are shopping malls everywhere. Be sure to check out the huge outlet mall on Corkscrew Rd.

We have recommended this home to our friends and hope to be back soon. We love the area and are considering buying a home.

Lazy Way Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay on the island in January. The home had everything we ever needed for a months stay which made it feel very much like home. The home is very well maintained and very well decorated. It was located in a quiet part of the island but there are plenty of things to see and do within a short bike ride or drive. We really enjoyed our daily walks on the beach.
