About vickie Michaud

I bought this home as my primary residence and enjoyed it for many years. I recently married and no longer live in Florida year round

vickie Michaud purchased this house in 2004

Why vickie Michaud chose Iona Shores

This waterfront home is in a wonderful quiet neighborhood. Off the beaten path yet very close to beaches, shopping, restaurants, night life, boating, gold and so much more. Most of the past tenants have commented that they never wanted to leave. They enjoyed sunbathing and swimming in our gorgeous inground pool, enjoyed dinners out on the patio and loved the large BBQ grill. There are awesome views from every window. This truly feels like a hideaway in a resort like setting!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week with our 2 children. We all loved swimming in the pool and hanging out in the yard. We got to see a dolphin swim by in the canal and we saw many fish jumping. We used the grill to cook most of our meals. Vickie was so easy to work with and gave us so much information to make our stay enjoyable. We spent the day on Sanibel Island and Captiva Island which was only about a 10 minute drive from the house. The home was clean and had everything we needed. We can't wait to go back next year

We are coming back! PZ

  • 5 of 5

We didn't want to leave. The house was perfect for us. There was no need to go anywhere but when we did it was very convenient to the ballparks. The kitchen was well equipped. It was so relaxing whether we hung out in the pool, played board games or ate on the lanai, or just hung out in the living room. If you want to sit outside Vickie had so many options with lounge chairs and a table and chairs. Love the house set-up with the bedrooms on the opposite sides of the house. Vickie was very easy to work with and we look forward to returning.

Had a Great Time!

  • 4 of 5

Our overall experience at the property during the first week of March was Great! While the property may need a little TLC, it was clean and had everything that you could need. We loved the layout of the house, which allowed for plenty of space to enjoy the views of the waterway, as well as the tropical oasis pool. We especially loved the pool and hot tub. Nothing better than waking up and taking a dip, while back home is getting hit with a Winter Storm. In addition, the location of the property was ideal. We were down here for our daughter's college softball spring break and were 15 minutes to fields, team hotel and Ft. Myers Beach. There are plenty of restaurants close by. Also, Vickie (owner) was a pleasure to work with.

If you are looking for a 5 star accommodations, than this may not be your place. However, if you are looking for an affordable alternative to staying in a hotel and having it all, this is your place!

Should we have the opportunity to stay in the Ft. Myers area in the future, we would definitely return.
