Hi everyone. I'm Steve. Welcome to Florida. I was born in Allentown, PA and grew up in South Carolina. After a prolonged enrollment at Clemson University I moved to the sunshine state and have loved every second of it. I put away the finance degree and went self employed and have never looked back.
Steve Baptiste purchased this cottage in 2011
I purchased my first house while a student at Clemson. I have always liked Real Estate. I bought this unit a few years back when it was still in need of much work. It had one thing that I will never forget...character. There are a ton of cookie cutter homes or dime a dozen condos scattering Southwest Florida. Mine is the only place like this!
Location location location. This place is right where you want to be. A mile to the beach and a block to the river the water is never far away. Be it the vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams that you never see anymore or the close proximity to everything you need you can't go wrong.
Considering it was our first Rental, we were pleased with the accommodations. It had a "cottage feel", but the fact that it was a 2 story did not work well for my wife.
Spent two weeks in Florida from Portland, Oregon, and the minute I got to the unit I felt relaxed and like I was on vacation. Super cute inside, a little like you are in a tree house. Cute furnishings, lots of Windows and sun, deck for morning and evening hang out.
Spent a lot of my time walking in the neighborhood and just outside the neighborhood as well - minimal traffic, lots of other people out enjoying the area, close to convenience stores, restaurants, and the beach. Also took advantage of the shed full of kayaks and bikes. Was able to put the kayak in the Imperial River about 1/3 mile from the unit and enjoyed time on the river.
Plenty of fresh linens and towels, and was great to have a washer/dryer. Comfy bed, AC, and for the times you want to chill inside there are tvs in both the living area and the bedroom with movie channels and On Demand.
Steve is awesome, can tell you everything about the area, where to go, what to do, helpful hints for how to navigate during full season, and is available for calls and questions. He really cared that I had a great time and wasn't lacking for anything. Appreciate his excellent customer service and pleasant attitude/sense of humor.
Would come back and stay here in a heartbeat, and will share this with all my friends.
This was such a cute apartment! The décor was adorable and it was so comfortable and accommodating. I traveled with my 2 children, 6 years and 9 months. Everything necessary was provided: Soap, detergent, paper items, shampoo... It was so convenient. The bed was also SOOO comfortable. Steve (The owner) was so pleasant! This would be best for someone just looking to relax and stay in as there is very little to do in the area other than the beach.
Just like the ad says.... (and my wife!) This place is charming!!
We stayed 5 nights and really enjoyed this quiet spot to relax and enjoy one another's company, the setting is nice and the great big windows show it off well.
The bikes were great, we peddled through the neighborhoods, to get grocery,to lunch and to the beach! Great proximity to whatever you need.
This house is close to Ft. Myers beach and Naples too! Nice location for quick trips to other scenes.....and if you run out of things to do, the owner is local and very knowledgeable of good eats or whatever floats your boat.....
Five Stars!! Excellent Value!! Nice Folks!!
Thanks Guys!! We'll be back!!
My husband and I were in Florida for business and stayed at Steve's rental. It is close to the beach and a short drive to accesses for back water fishing. The bikes were fantastic to take to the beach or store and a cool evening ride to the ice cream store. The location is ideal for taking day trips to many local attractions and restaurants. From this rental, the sunrise welcomes you each morning and a deck to enjoy an quiet drink in the evening. Steve is well versed with the area and can recommend many activities to experience. Don't worry about traffic, it is in a quiet neighborhood that is good for that morning walk.
We stayed in the cottage for two weeks and enjoyed our stay immensely. The location was great, close to the beach, area golf courses and restaurants. We enjoyed cooking and eating on the deck by candle light. The property was clean and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable and a big plus was having a washer and dryer. Steve, the owner, provided everything we needed including help finding local golf courses and restaurants. Anytime we asked Steve anything, he was always willing to help. Anything you needed was available in the cottage including bed linens, cooking and eating utensils, towels, washcloths and mats and paper products. There were also bicycles provided for touring the neighborhood. It was just a great place to stay in a good location. We likely will be back next year.
