vacation with friends

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the vacation compound with 8 adults and everyone had an amazing time! Mindy, the owner, was wonderful and promptly responded to any questions or concerns that we had throughout the trip. The house was very well kept and stocked with any towels, laundry supplies, or basic toiletries that we might need. The pool was a great place to hang out for adults and would be a wonderful spot for kids as well. Having the separate screened in hot tub was really nice and we used it many times throughout the week. We also appreciated the beautiful scenery around the yard and the feeling of being tucked back in our own little oasis. There wasn't much need to ever leave the property, but downtown Fort Myers was very cute and had some good restaurants and bars, it was only about a 25 minute drive away. We also took a trip to the Lee County Manatee park, about a 20 minute drive away, and had a really wonderful morning kayaking with manatees. Overall, a wonderful trip and we would highly recommend renting this property for anybody with a large group who is looking for a relaxing vacation space.

Perfect Home For Our Group

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our stay. With six singles not wanting to share rooms and certainly not wanting to pay for six hotel rooms, this house made the perfect retreat for us. The main house is large and very open, with a huge great room that was perfect for nightly dinners and hanging out. A very large separate guest house really allowed us to spread out and have plenty of privacy. The pool area was great for cooking out and relaxing by day. It has a huge fenced in yard with lots of space for games like cornhole and hammocks everywhere for lounging around. There is even a movie theater on the property, stocked with tons of new movies or set up to watch Sunday football on. We had a great time, it was everything we could have hoped for, will definitely come back again!

Great family compound

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely visit. The compound was as described, rustic, private and perfect for our family reunion. We greatly enjoyed watching movies in the private theater, soaking in the hot tub, grilling by the screened pool, and night games around the pool table---something for everyone! The enormous dining room table accommodated our large family dinners. We had a few light bulbs burned out when we arrived, but a quick text to Mindy resolved that immediately. The location was ideal for exploring Naples, Captiva, Sanibel and the Edison/Ford mansions. Tons of retail nearby for avid shoppers; and great restaurants for to try. While the house decor is a little dated, the entire facility was very clean and secure--we would definitely book again. Thanks for everything, Mindy.

Mixed Feelings

  • 3 of 5

We have mixed feelings about this property. It has great potential and we would have given it five stars if we would not have had several maintenance issues upon our arrival. Items such as, a toilet that did not work, two bathroom sinks that backed up, two doors and one window that did not lock, several ceiling lights out and visible mold in one the bathrooms and around the kitchen sink. The main entry door sticks really bad. We found the outdoor kitchen to be unusable. The hot tub had a ring of dead leaf debris. Trash outside was overflowing and I was asked to haul three full dumpsters and two recycling dumpsters to the curb and back. All these items were obvious and should have been taken care of before our arrival. We would have called the owners during our stay regarding the maintenance items, however, these items would have taken more than a few hours or a day or two to correct and we did not want to be inconvenienced. This can be backed up by videos and pictures if the owners are interested. The positive things are the detached Theater with a huge movie selection, a very nice pool table, and really nice entertainment system throughout the property. Improvements would need to be made if we were to recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you had a few maintenance issues, they should have been resolved before your stay and we have since made other arrangements for a maintenance provider. We're glad you enjoyed the area and the property, and thanks for the comments.
