Great place to stay, great vacation
This immaculate and beautifully decorated home was in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood, but just 5 minutes away from major streets, shopping, and no more than 15 minutes away from the BEST beaches in the area.
We had everything we could have hoped for, great beds, a beautiful and well-stocked kitchen (including freezer beer mugs), a covered patio (called a Lanai in FL), and a BBQ for cooking outside.
We travelled to Ft. Myers for the outdoor activities (kayak, beaches, and biking), and were not disappointed. In one direction from the house about 15 minutes away is Ft. Myers Beach which has plenty of public beach access, and a great State Park (Lovers Key). There is also a really cool dog beach...although we don't have a dog, we saw lots of people with their furry friends hanging out here. In the other direction, no more than 10 minutes you are on Sanibel Island which has some of the best beaches for shelling (I got a great collection), great restaurants, and wonderfully paved bike paths that go from one end of the island to the other.
We read that Ft. Myers doesn't have a good choice of restaurants, but I disagree. We found at least 6 great restaurants within a couple of minutes of the house including a german restaurant right next door, an authentic mexican, a fantastic sushi place, a rib place, and some of the best seafood restaurants.
To top it all off, I was 5 minutes away from the Tanger outlet stores, and 20 minutes from the Miromar outlets. I got some awesome deals!!
Gary and Dianne are great owners. They tried to think of everything for their guests (beach umbrella, lawn chairs, mugs, etc), and it shows. I hope that we can go back again next year.
Owner's Response: Thank you all for being wonderfully caring guests. We have found that everyone who has stayed in our home has been very respectful and caring of our home. It is great to hear that you have enjoyed some of the exciting activities near our home. We work very hard at providing a comfortable, enjoyable accommodation for our guests and it is very nice to be appreciated.
