Property is the perfect location, right on the beach, walked everywhere, but property needs some tlc

  • 3 of 5

This property is pretty beat up, things just are not fixed here. We had no wifi for 5 days, and owner is not good with answering emails. The rental company finally figured it out.The furniture is not bad, kitchen Is adequate.good king size bed . Overall we had a great vacation, but if you're fussy about your rental, this is not the place

Below Average

Negatives: Everything in the house needs to be updated! Kitchen, Bathroom, Furniture (except the couch and living room chair) Flooring, Blinds, etc. I suggest you bring your own linens! The sheets are washed after each stay, but the mattress protector, pillows and comforters were disgusting! There is a Hooters right behind the house and it was loud and rowdy a few nights. The curtains on the front of the house are white and very thin, so it gets hot in the house during the day (from the direct sunlight) because the AC units can't keep up. It would be much better with dark colored curtains or the room darkening curtains.

Positives: Oceanfront!! You can't get any better sunsets than this! There is a public volleyball net in front of the Pub that is right next door! Our kids enjoyed playing games with the other kids staying nearby while we adults sat on the balcony and watched! Umbrellas and lounge chairs are free of charge from the man renting them beside the house, but they have to stay right in front of the house, you can not take them down to the beach!

great location and spectacular views

  • 4 of 5

The property came exactly as advertised, and is what you would expect from a beachfront rental. The location, being right on the beach and close to the square, was super convenient and the house was clean and the amenities were more than adequate. The house was perfect for our family of four and we had everything we needed. We have been coming to Ft. Myers Beach for many years, and this is the first time we rented the property. We will definitely rent again, and would recommend the property to family and friends.

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

I will first comment on the positive which is the location. The unit is direct oceanfront and very close to Times Square. We walked everywhere and rarely used our rental car. Unfortunately, the unit is in need of many repairs, a thorough cleaning, and updates. Every item in the unit is very cheap, from the furniture and bed linens to the plastic mini blinds and cookware. The blinds on 2 windows are broken and unable to be closed. The sliding glass door does not have a screen and is very hard to open (and dirty). The couch has a big dip in the middle. The outside deck has many loose boards with nails sticking out. My husband had to borrow a hammer to fix these during our stay. I have never rented a unit from VRBO that did not have any reviews and I took a chance on this unit, only to be extremely disappointed. I was in contact with the owner who resolved our issue of 2 towels for a week (a bag with 3 very cheap towels from Family Dollar was left at doorstep). I could have overlooked many of these issues if the condo was clean but it was not. The kitchen drawers were all filthy.I bought plastic silverware, cups, and paper plates to use. If you are used to renting quality units with high end finishes, this is not the unit for you. It would be fine to rent to college kids at spring break but for any other reason, I would look elsewhere.
