  • 60 Bday

    "This was our first time to Marco Island and it was fantastic. This condo was beautiful and clean. We enjoyed sunsets from the balcony and great walks on the beach every day for the week we were there. Condo is updated and very roomy. All of our friends were jealous and we had the "sunset condo" everybody enjoyed the spacious balcony and living space inside. The pool was clean and very nice the beach was groomed daily and the front desk people nice and friendly. Several of our friends are going to try and request this condo for the their next trip if we don't get it first!!"

  • Steps from the beach!

    "We loved our time (a month) at this beachy older two-flat cottage. We stayed in the lower apartment which consists of easy to clean floors rather than carpeting. It's location is right across from the beach and water but one must cross a rather busy street to get there. This was not a problem for us, however as cars will stop and many others also cross at this walkway to beach access. Not only is the location close to the Gulf, it is also within walking distance to several shops and restaurants and close driving distance to many attractions. In addition, there is a dog beach a short drive away. With two bedrooms and baths, we had plenty of room for ourselves, any guests we might have and our two pets. The kitchen was adequate but short some cooking utensils which the kind housekeeper was able to supply from the other apartment above. I'm told kitchen supplies are being updated. We were able to meet the owner and he was kind and accommodating. We found the cost reasonable and very much enjoyed our stay."

  • Quiet | Immaculate | Perect Loation

    "My wife and I enjoyed the serenely quiet and accessible Marco Island area from this brilliantly located and well equipped condo. Bikes were available, the pool, beach within 5 minute walk literally across the road! The sunsets were like nothing we've experienced and since we prefer low-key low touristy destinations, this was a "re-charge our batteries" type break. Everything we needed was at this cute ground floor condo with all the beach chairs etc on hand. Thanks again for a fantastic, trouble free stay and for keeping such a beautiful place so charming and stylish! Cooking from "home" was one of our highlights using fresh seafood produce from a fishmonger we spotted during our casual cycling ride."

  • Great condo, great location

    "This is a very nice, tastefully appointed condo just a short walk from a beautiful beach. The owners clearly put a lot of thought into providing everything guests need - from beach towels to corkscrews to hair dryer to wi-fi. Bathroom has been recently updated, kitchen is well-equipped, and there's plenty of storage. They've made very good use of the space, with lots of drawers, a closet with hangers and cabinets, which we appreciated because we were there five weeks. This was our second stay. After spending 10 days there last year, we had to return for a longer stay. Lots of nice touches including a welcome basket (coffee, note cards, laundry detergent, etc.) and information book, which has excellent suggestions for outings and restaurants that we probably wouldn't tried otherwise (like Roy's and Flippers, which are terrific). The owners are great to deal with. Lots of amenities on the property including pools, grills, game areas, and, best of all, beautifully maintained clay tennis courts. Highly recommend."

Florida South West Travel Tips

From alligator tours to breathtaking beaches to parasailing, southwest Florida boasts more than its fair share of things to do. It embodies untouched natural beauty for nature lovers and families alike. Take the edge off at this serene region of the Sunshine State!

Top Activities

Want to spot some prehistoric gators? Airboats & Alligators in Lake Trafford features more than 1500 acres filled with alligators, native birds, expert staff and amazing tours. Fly across the water in an airboat, where you’ll catch more than a glimpse of these wild beasts and other wildlife. It is also famous for fishing, so be ready to reel in some bluegill, bass and shellcracker. Rent a pontoon with your friends or get the adrenaline pumping with alligator sightings.

Naples Botanical Garden: Delight in the dazzling gardens. The walk tours last anywhere from one hour to a full day depending on what you’re in the mood for, so set up camp for the day or simply stroll around at your leisure to gaze at the beautiful flowers and plants. Bring your kids to the Children’s Garden for the butterfly house, tree house and fountains. Afterward, have lunch in the midst of this subtropical paradise.

Smugglers Cove Adventure Miniature Golf: The whole family will love the 18 outdoor holes of miniature golf over rushing waterfalls, mysterious caves and tropical plants. It has been voted “Florida’s Best Mini Golf” by Florida Monthly Magazine readers three years in a row. You can even feed live gators at the cove. This place is an ideal family outing!

Estero Bay Preserve State Park: Situated between Fort Myers and Naples, this park was the first aquatic preserve established in the state. You can find fiddler crabs, gopher tortoises and a diversity of wildlife among the trees and shores here. Enjoy the miles of trails that provide gorgeous vistas for hiking or biking. If you want to discover the park on the water, go kayaking or canoeing and take a little dip to cool off.

Adventure Water Sports: Sail boats, wave-runners, kayaks, dolphin sightings - you name it - there are all sorts of fun water activities you can enjoy here. Located right on Fort Myers Beach, this adventure business features guided dolphin tours around the island. You’ll zoom across the waves on a jet ski on a 90-minute journey beside mangrove forests, quiet bays and the open water to scout the dolphins. Tours depart daily at 9:30 a.m. For a day of fun in the sun, Adventure Water Sports has got it all.

Best Beaches

Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota opens up to the glimmering waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Explore the mangrove forests or sail the boat out for some fishing, where you can reel in pompano and snook. The waters are calm and courteous to swimmers old and young. In for an adventure? Try parasailing for a bird’s eye view of the gulf. In 2011, it was rated the “No. 1 Beach in America” by Dr. Beach. For some quality relaxation (since siesta means nap), put this beach on the must-do list.

Swing by Englewood Beach for family fun. You can spot dolphins popping up through the turquoise waters. There are basketball courts, barbecue grills and volleyball courts that’ll turn any day into one packed with activity. Other amenities include horseshoes, picnic areas and a playground.

Bring the crew camping along the calm waters of Marco Island. It’s quiet and serene - in other words, it’s a leading alternative to what you’d find in Southwestern Florida’s Miami Beaches. Recapture some peace of mind fishing offshore, or hit the snooze button in a hammock on the beach. The weather is perfect year-round, so make sure you don’t miss this tranquil opportunity!

Sanibel Island is a popular locale for shelling. Find gems of the sea here, as there’s more variety than you could ask for. Brimming with roughly 400 species of bright-colored seashells, you’ll be able to find varieties of all shapes and sizes. Due to the protective boomerang shape of the island, its shores are known to bring in shells in one piece.

Shopping and Dining

To pick up a souvenir or two, make your way to the outdoor Bell Tower Mall for some top-of-the-line stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Jacobson’s department store and dozens of boutiques. In Naples, hit up the Boardwalk Shops and Dining for a Key West-style evening. You’ll also be able to find some delicious eats here.

For top-notch restaurants, check out Capital Grille in Naples. It offers legendary dry-aged steaks and the freshest seafood on the coast. Did we mention there’s more than 5,000 bottles of wine you can sip and swirl?

Another fantastic meal can be found at Cibo, an Italian restaurant with an award-winning chef. This place serves mouth-watering antipasti and roasted chicken breast that you've been craving.

With a variety of beaches and outdoor fun, southwest Florida is a top-tier getaway for vacationers nationwide.
