  • A little peice of paradise

    "We totaled enjoyed our stay at this island paradise for January and February for the last four years. It is always clean when we get there and Phil and Gizzelle always fix any problems that arise!!!!!! It always feels like we are coming home when we get there. The Bocillia Palms Club is always in immaculate condition and very beautiful. We call it our condo because, it is for 2 months of the year. The neighbors are always friendly. We both like to golf and the Alden Pines golf course is a few minutes away. There is always wonderful places to eat and things to do, plus the weather in Florida is usually great."

  • Perfect!

    "This condo was absolutely perfect for a beach weekend getaway for the girls. Once we parked our car in the lot we didn't have to drive anywhere until we were packed up to go home days later. One block away from a hub of restaurants, bars, and shops, and only a few blocks away from a relatively uncrowded area of the beach, the location of this rental is a huge attraction. The unit is simply but very nicely furnished, and everything was clean and in working order upon arrival. I highly recommend it!"

  • great getaway for fishing couple

    "We arrived on Sunday and found the place exactly as described, clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. It is obvious the owner has gone to great lengths to provide guests with every possible accommodation to insure a pleasurable stay. The kitchen is well equipped for meal preperation and we enjoyed our cooking time. The bathroom is very beautiful with tile and granite counter top, the shower is very inviting and my husband commented on how much he enjoyed it. The bedroom has the most comfortable bed we have ever had in a rental, you won't be disappointed. There is an endless list of wonderful attributes connected with this property I can't note them all here but will surmise by saying you can't find anything not accommodating at this location. We came to fish and were more than satified with the results having caught over 80 fish large and small, a few so large we were not equipped to land them. If fishing is your thing you certainly won't find a better situation, great fishing with perfect creature comforts all in one place. We spent 4 days and left only once for a quick grocery and bait run, you have practically and "all inclusive" vacation when you stay here. What a great value for the costs, and even better that you're going to love it too. The view of the bay was also great, watching the boats as well as dolphin, and schooling fish, birds and fish feeding on barnacle covered submerged trees at the edge like black drum and large flounder made the whole experience just perfect. We loved every minute and will certainly be back. Thanks Donna for offering such a nice property."

  • wonderful family vacation location

    "listing was accurate, but didnt do the home justice. Our family of 4 had a wonderful time. Plenty of room in a great location. the bedrooms were nice, the bathrooms were very cool. lots of privacy. everything was in good shape. great kitchen. Our family highlight was the private pool. very nice size with plenty of room & privacy. swimming at night was wonderful. we enjoyed having a nice propane grill for cooking. Location was great. far enough from the busy section for peace & quiet, but close enough to groceries & wonderful food. To get to the ocean you do have to cross a road, but it was only a short trip. swimming was wonderful in the ocean here & not very crowded. The owner Donna was great to work with. i would highly recommend this house"

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.
