We're Brits living in England's beautiful Lake District, so unsurprisingly we like to vacation where the sun (nearly always) shines, and where we can indulge our interest in walking & wildlife whilst enjoying wonderful family vacations.

Rick & Sheila Crawley purchased this villa in 2004

We bought our home in Fort Myers after several happy family holidays staying in a number of homes along Florida's gulf coast, all of which were looked after by our current property manager. We love the area, and in particular its less developed / less commercial character compared to many stretches of the gulf coast. Our particular interest is the wildlife, of all kinds, and we are great walkers. Recently we've begun to explore the wilder side of Florida by kayak & on foot, & after a little initial trepidation (about what might be lurking in the undergrowth / water!) we're coming to love this too. In our opinion Ft Myers the best place on the Gulf Coast for the wide variety of things to do, both very locally & on day trips.

We love the open plan living that our house embodies, the big open space that opens onto the outdoors, and the way the outdoor space becomes just another part of your living area. We never fail to eat outside whenever possible, and love to be outdoors in the evening, with the warm-weather sounds of the night all around - crickets, frogs, etc. We also love our own space and privacy - it's great not to have to worry about who's on the next table to you at dinner, or in the next room in a hotel. It's great to be close to the beach, but it's also really important to be close to lots of other things to do, so that the needs of all family members are satisfied - fishing, golf, boating, water sports, swimming, parks & playgrounds, nature, heritage & history, the movies, shopping, etc.

Relaxing and well looked after

  • 5 out of 5
Had a fantastic and relaxing vacation in a beautiful and well positioned property. We stayed here (family of five) for almost two weeks and all felt it was the best rental we had experienced in 10 years or so of Florida holiday rentals.
It really is very relaxing (a beautiful view over the lake from the pool helped) and the villa itself was very well maintained and had everything you could wish for. Location is good as well with the Sweetbay supermarket within walking distance (or a very short drive).
Only gripe was that the pool water did go green a couple of days before the pool cleaner was due to visit but I think that was just a factor of the weather and I only mention it here to remind anyone to phone up the (very helpful) management company if that happens to them and they can arrange the pool cleaner to come out sooner.
All in all, if you think this suits your requirements and you can find availability (we have already tried to book for next year and the were booked up) then you will have a fantastic time if you book here.

Lovely, well-equipped villa in a great location.

  • 5 out of 5
This is a great property in an excellent location, close to local amenities and wonderful places to visit. The villa is well-equipped with a good-sized pool which we all loved. We would not hesitate in recommending this property to other people.

Loved this home. My best Florida rental ever!

  • 5 out of 5
As soon as I walked in the door of this beautiful home, I knew I would love it. It was clean. The beds are comfortable. There are TVs in all the bedrooms -- and, of course, a large one in the great room. The lanai and pool are beautiful. We didn't actually use the pool, but the lanai was wonderful when we wanted to get some sun or have an outdoor meal or snack. The yard is lovely and well maintained, and the home overlooks a pretty little lake. Colonial Pointe is very quiet and secluded, yet located very near all that south Fort Myers has to offer. I was there for six weeks, loved every day of it and did not want to leave.

Perfect Villa

  • 5 out of 5
Had a great week.Villa is exactly as described in a very safe gated community, with nice & friendly neighbours.
Supermarket (Sweetbay) is very close for all your grocery needs.
Miromar shopping outlets is massive and lovely and not far away for shopping.
Villa is very spacious and has everything you need, including pool toys, and appreciated the beach parasols and deck chairs for use at the beach.Beaches at Sanibel and Captiva nearby were lovely. Very nice lunch at the Key Lime Bistro with live music,on Captiva .
Had a takeaway pizza from Oliveoil's near the Sweetbay - delicious. Was even treated to some Italian sausage and bean soup wile waiting.The people were so friendly.
Have to say the villa was great and made for a very enjoyable stay.

Our first time staying in a private villa and I think we chose wisely.

Thanks Sheila and Rick , you have a wonderful place !

A Fantastic Villa In A Beautiful Location.

  • 5 out of 5
The Villa
Even the beautiful photos of the villa on the website do not do justice to how lovely this villa is. It is really spacious, very clean, furnished to really high standards, with informal, formal and outside eating areas, and a really well equipped kitchen.
From the kitchen you walk through the laundry/pantry area to the garage where we found 3 bikes and lots of beach equipment and pool toys.
The master suite has twin sinks a lovely large walk in shower and separate bathtub. There is also another bathroom next to the other two bedrooms which was ideal as our party was made up of two separate families travelling together.

The villa is set in a beautiful, quiet gated residential area, the gardens and surrounding areas are kept to a very high standard. Inside the villa you will find everything you need and more, including everything you need to take for a day on the beach or an outing in the car.

The pool is brilliant especially to cool off in the Florida sunshine, or after a day exploring the Fort Myers area. It was really hot whilst we were visiting and it was great that when sitting outside you could always find some shade to relax in, and the mesh screening surrounding the pool kept out all the unwanted flying insects.

The villa is in easy reach of the local amenities with a supermarket only a short walk away. There is no shortage of restaurants and take aways to choose from, when you don’t feel like cooking in the well equipped kitchen.
We found it to be an ideal base for exploring the area, and even got as far as a day trip to Busch Gardens, although along day everyone agreed it was well worth it.
We often went on a bike ride to Lakes Park which is a short ride away, along safe paths, it was lovely riding around there early in a morning before the sun got too high. We even saw an alligator, and lots of turtles and birds along the way.

If you like shopping you won’t be disappointed with the shopping malls and the designer outlets, all only a short drive away.
We visited some lovely places, but we didn’t have enough time to see all this area of Florida has to offer, we enjoyed relaxing on the beaches and by the pool as well.
Our favorite beaches were on Sanibel which is a beautiful, unspoilt island a short drive from the villa there are some amazing beaches, restaurants and sunsets.

We would love to return to the villa still so much to see and do!! we all had a brilliant holiday.

Beautiful home. Beautiful location.

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a 2 week family vacation at the Crawley's home. From making the reservation to our final day the whole experience was fantastic.
Sheila was helpful with advice and promptly answering questions ahead of our visit.
The location of the property is ideal for Fort Myers Beach, Naples (which we thought was stunning) and the beautiful islands of Sannibel/Captiva which are all within 30 mins drive. It's also a good base for trips further afield.
It was clean, well maintained and had all the mod-cons to make it a home-from-home. Having a young family it was great to be able to take minimal clothing but be able to do laundry when required. This is a big plus now airlines charge per bag !!
The pool is beautiful with lovely views. It was extremely peaceful and relaxing out there for us. There was an abundance of pool toys and cooler boxes etc for the beach. One observation for families with very young kids is that while the pool doors are alarmed (excellent) the pool itself does not have a fence/screen around its edge (something we've had at other Florida properties). That said, there was always one of us keeping watch anyhow so it's not a big deal.
We were sad to leave and commented that it had been one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vacations we've ever had. We've had the privelige to be able to stay in 5-star hotels all over the Carribean / Far East and Europe but this home is one of the few places we will definitely visit again and again in the coming years.
Thank you Sheila for allowing us to use your beautiful home for a truly memorable 2 weeks. We look forward to our next visit (hopefully in the next year or two).

Colonial Pointe is an exclusive, gated community of 72 single-family homes in South Fort Myers, surrounding a peaceful lake. Wide selection of local shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. Championship golf courses at every turn. Just 10 minutes from the glorious west coast islands of Sanibel and Captiva, and Fort Myers Beach. The Ford and Edsion winter homes are worth a visit. The wildlife is great - Lakes Park is just a short a cycle ride or a 5 minute drive from the house.

The local Publix (2 minutes by car) and Sweetbay (walking distance) are great grocery stores, with excellent fresh produce, sushi, fish, steaks, wine, etc.

If you're arriving late and tired, 7-11 (24 hour convenience store and gas / petrol) is literally just round the corner.

Walgreens and more are just round the corner. And for fashion, the huge Miromar Designer Outlets, Tanger Outlet Mall, Bell Tower Shops and other malls are all within a 15 minute drive.

Health club nearby.
