This home is a wonderful setup for family vacation. We would recommend staying here! So comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our children and their families on vacation! This was definitely a home away from home! It had everything you could ask for. All of us were so comfortable! Our grandchildren and children were so happy with everything and would definitely go there again! With the pool, beach within walking distance and many other needed conveniences right near by, shopping, restaurants, activities, etc.! Absolutely loved it!

Great vacation house! on a canal that turned out to be quite nice, 5 minute walk to beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome! Well supplied, 9 moms stayed there. Need a car to get groceries probably but the beach was just a short 5 minute walk, a 7/11 is right there, grocery stores right down the road in either direction, Junkanoos restaurant in walking distance and it's on the beach and fun. The pool was GREAT! Lots of pool toys and chairs. Morning coffee on the deck. Nice neighbors but you can't be too So glad we had the Canadian connection! We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Thanksgiving on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We had a most wonderful stay! We had been trying to get the kids and grandkids all together for a vacation. This was perfect. Clean and well maintained. Plenty of room for everyone, 6 adults and 2 little ones. The owner, Ian is wonderful. The neighbor was very nice and welcomed the first arrivals.

The location is perfect and we enjoyed the short walk to the beach. The pool was perfect too! Everything we needed was there.

A door on the loft room would offer privacy to whoever slept there. The downstairs being separate without access to the upstairs was different and could benefit from containing a full bath.

We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Ft. Myers for 17 years and have always stayed with family. This is the first time that we decided to take a chance and rent a house since we were going to have our grown children and their spouses staying with us. We were 7 adults ranging from 63 to 20 years of age. So glad that we took the chance. The house is perfect. True to description. Spacious, clean, updated and filled with all the amenities that you could possibly need. It is conveniently located in regards to food shopping (Publix down the street)restaurants, the beach and night life. The Junkanoo on Estero provided many great lunches and libations as well as a beautiful clean beach and an upscale restaurant for dinner in the Fresh Catch Bistro. Don't like the beach then the pool is the perfect place for plenty of sun and peaceful relaxation and there is shade if it gets to be too much. It is well maintained and equipped with enough lounge chairs for everyone. So if you are looking for a peaceful paradise then this is the rental for you. Thanks Ian and Susan for sharing your piece of paradise with us.
