So much better than a hotel.

  • 5 of 5

After traveling for 20 something days at hotels it was nice to have a house to come home to. We came to Ft Myers for a perfect game week long baseball tournament, the location of the house was perfect and close to all the fields. Close to resturants and a little shopping area. We used the kitchen and cooked a lot and the boys were able to use the pool to cool off in btwn games. Jerry was also quick to return any questions we had. Thanks!

Great amenities, kind host, excellent location

  • 3 of 5

Lacked general cleanliness (under the couch and on the fans). That said, the pool was clean and in good order and the sheets and towels were clean and cozy. So, as it goes, we were pleased with our selection. The host was kind

Central location with a lot of room

  • 3 of 5

This house was perfect for six adults and a child. With easy access to the highways and within walking distance of the historic river area, it was easy to get around. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and a nice Publix within a mile or so.

The family spent quite a bit of time in the large front porch as there was plenty of seating for all of us. The large table in the dining room allowed us to have meals as a family and there were nice televisions in every room. The loft area was a complete bonus and allowed for the adult kids to have their privacy.

Washer dryer and all appliances worked well. There are quiet ceiling fans in each room to keep the air moving through the house. There are air conditioning units for up and down stairs so each level was kept comfortable.

Jerry was very responsive when we needed a couple of things during our stay. I would actually say ha was the most responsive of any of our VRBO hosts.

Downside- the house was beautiful but a little run down. I would think a fresh coat of paint on the white trim would go a long way. The neighborhood could use some revitalization, but overall was fine. These two items are the only thing that kept our rating from being five stars.

Charming house, lots of space, and close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here during a recent trip to watch spring training. We'd stayed in Ft. Myers Beach in the past and wanted to try staying closer to downtown. This house was just right for our group of 6 adults and 1 pre-schooler. It's an older home with a lot of character. The kitchen has been recently redone and is really nice. It had everything we needed to cook a couple of big dinners in. My son loved the pool and the large backyard has several different seating areas and room to throw a ball around. There was even a basketball hoop! Two of the bathrooms are a little on the small side but that was more than made up for by having FOUR to choose from. The location is perfect - a short walk to downtown restaurants, shops, and a very nice park by the water. Last but not least, Jerry was very easy to contact and made sure we had everything we needed.

We stayed for 3 nights and the home was perfect for us. Walking distance to nearby restaurants and downtown area. Comfortable home with nice swimming pool and privacy backyard. We would definitely stay again in the future if returning to Ft Myers area.
