Recent Florida South West reviews

  • Brilliant vacation

    "Our 11-day vacation was wonderful. The house, its environs, facilities and pool enabled our grown-up family to behave like kids in the pool and on the beach, and perform like master chefs in the kitchen. I fully agree the complements and description of the house in the review by Klang previous to this. The nearby excellent sandy beach was usually almost deserted and really is just a few minutes walk away. The wagon, provided by the owners for transporting stuff to the beach, added to the fun. The sea was usually calm, and the temperature good with the gently shelving beach enabling a paddle to watch the pelicans before starting some serious swimming. We enjoyed excellent weather throughout our holiday, and delighted at the new moon when near-zero light pollution allowed us all to gape at the magnificent night sky. It really was difficult to take it all in but the screen over pool the acted as a grid enabling one to spend ages concentrating on and appreciating the night splendour in small doses. There was plenty to do just minutes drive away. The "Ding Darling" reserve, kayaking on Tarpon Bay, and enjoying some of the fish restaurants. A couple of hours drive to the Shark Valley Everglades 15-mile bike route was great, alligators viewed in their natural surroundings and lots of birdlife. We certainly hope to visit again and enjoy our favourite drive across the causeway from Fort Myers to Sanibel."

  • GREAT PLACE

    "I WAS SUPPLIED WITH ALL I NEEDED. DID NOT NEED TO BRING ANYTHING EXCEPT A BEACH UMBRELLA. CLEAN AND QUIET BUILDING. I JUST WISH I WOULD HAVE HAD A CHANNEL GUIDE FOR THE TV."

  • Relaxing, Peaceful, and Beautiful!

    "This is our third visit at Incommunicado. And each stay has been top notch. First you have the island - shelling, kayaking, beautiful beach, swimming, tennis, pool access, birds to watch, breezes - this is truly a place to go to and unwind. But the icing on the cake is Incommunicado. The owners have thought of everything - there are kayaks you can use, tennis rackets, beach towels, a wagon for taking your stuff to the beach, chairs for the beach, board games, plenty of movies to watch and books to read. If you are traveling from far away, it is really nice not to have to pack the extra items. The home is immaculate and each year, there has been something that has been upgraded. The landscaping around the home gives you a feeling of privacy. One of my favorite spots is the hammock - there is always a breeze and I spent hours there reading and napping. There is a grill, a picnic table, a laundry room, an enclosed outdoor shower, and a table/bench that you can sort your seashells out on after you bring them back from the beach. There is a screened in porch on the back of the house that you can enjoy mealtime, game time, or just quiet time with a cup of coffee as you listen to the sounds of nature around you. And if you don't want to be completely away from civilization, there is high speed internet and satellite tv. And the price for all of this is exceedingly reasonable! Tracy thinks of everything to make you stay pleasurable. We can't wait to go back again!"

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.
