pool home in Estero

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home and comfortable. The pool is nice to look at but cold. The solar heater leaks so is not used. Water temp. most of time 72 degrees. We used the community pool temp 80+ degrees. Nice location. We stayed the month of March. The owner gets back to you quickly if you need them for any questions. The weather was perfect around 80 degrees.

Owner's Response: We regret that the solar pool heater was not functioning due to the leak which was only reported to us by our February renter. Our roof was scheduled to be replaced in May which precluded us from replacing the solar system until after the roof is installed. All repairs will be complete at that time. Doug was a gracious guest and we would welcome him and his wife back anytime.

Great place, Awesome Owners.

  • 5 of 5

Lis and Tim have all the conveniences for you, house is good size, well stocked, and in a nice location close to shopping, beaches, and nature preserves.. Was hot and humid, upper 80's when we were there, but we were comfortable in the Lanai and pool because it is well shaded! Would be a great home for a summer trip!

Great Location, Very Clean, Perfect Vac Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This home was very clean, nicely decorated with a warm feeling and very inviting! The pool was absolutely the best. I enjoyed my morning swim. Quiet and Private. Coffee on the lanai. Great location. Airport 15-20 min away. Coconut Mall just a few minutes drive. This mall has many fabulous restaurants, a very nice theater, shops, grocers, etc. Barefoot Beach, Bonita Beach, Lovers Key, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva Islands; all are so close! You can't go wrong staying here. Owners are very nice. House is so accommodation to visitors. Beach items, chairs, plenty of towels, and much more. Abundance of necessity items that hotels always never give you enough of. You won't need to pack anything but your clothes, swim suit and toothbrush! It was really like being at home and that was a great feeling. Safe and quiet neighborhood. I told all my friends about this place as soon as I got back. I highly recommend staying here. There is so much to do and this rental is perfectly located. The owners have the house set up as if you were going into your own place but carefully and pleasantly made printed tags for your ease to find everything! They send you all the information you will need to make your stay perfect. They have coupons, maps, and much more for you at the house. It provided much more than any Hotel, even high end could over. It was actually less costly staying here and really being able to relax than staying at one of the many Resorts I have stayed at previously. The only thing I regret, I forgot to write in the book that is left on the end table for guest to write about their stay. This book clearly showed how others as well as myself enjoyed our stay and how accommodating the owners are. To T&L: "Thank you" for a nice relaxing week that was very much needed. I hope I can fit into the schedule again this fall".

Beautiful Home! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights. Perfect location. Nice and quiet and safe gated community. This home has everything you need during your stay. It is stocked with extra supplies and lots of sheets, towels and blankets. The beach chairs were a definite plus!!! Screened in porch and pool make every morning perfect for coffee and quiet time. We couldn't think of one suggestion....it was all perfect and very accommodating. Thanks so much to Lis for being so helpful. Definitely recommend this for your next vacation! Shopping, eating and beaches are all within very close!
