  • Captiva beach house

    "This beach house was the best vacation rental we ever stayed. The photos don't do justice to the beautiful refurnishings to update and decorate this home. The house is very clean and well maintained and contained most essentials items to fully enjoy. The house is just steps from the beach and pool. The screened in porch provided hours just to sit and look over the beautiful setting. Doc Ford's was our favorite restaurant which was only five minutes away. We also took the boat cruise to Useppa Island which is a must "to do" while staying in Captiva. The owner was most helpful in proving information and answering our questions. We definitely would come back to this beach home and we highly recommend this place to any friend or relative."

  • Great getaway

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Anna and Nathan's property. The beach was beautiful. The people staying in the building were friendly. The condo was spacious. The beach toys for the kids were very helpful. Anna was a pleasure to deal with while making all arrangements and very helpful. I would recommend this rental for families for sure!"

  • A Great Vacation!!

    "This is our second stay at Dave’s Loggerhead Key condo. The first stay was awesome! The second was even better. We knew where we were going and what to expect. Some helpful knowledge: ~ You are getting an exceptional value for the price ~ The condo is extremely well maintained and current ~ The furniture is tasteful and complete ~ Information packet extremely well thought out and useful ~ extra towels ~ Full size wash and dryer…including detergent ~ Twin shower heads in “walk in” shower (very nice touch indeed!) ~ jetted tub in master suite ~ Kitchen complete, full size 4 burner stove/oven, dishwasher, flatware, dishes etc. Complete meals can be prepared with existing “equipment”. ~ Safe location, including door lock plus deadbolt ~ Dedicated parking ~ Elevator ~ Free dedicated Wi-Fi, long distance phone included ~ Short stroll to the beach Service from the owner: ~ Each time I contacted Dave I received responses quickly and complete ~ Very professional ~ Form of payment was easy secure ~ Key access was easy with clear and concise instruction ~ Excellent follow-up and follow through ~ Hassel free process The above is just about the best formula you can get! Now, how did we use all this? Well, we made some great meals eating in the condo. Each morning I strolled to the front of the complex purchased a newspaper, had our Breakfast and read the paper….it was so peaceful and quite. Lunches, here and there. Dinners mostly in, but a few out. Tried to find a decent burger, but wasn’t successful, maybe it was just me?? Lazy days bicycling, sunning and swimming at beaches, walking, or just hanging around reading some good books. It is quite peaceful and relaxing on Sanibel! In conclusion, Dave does his part in spades, Sanibel does its’ part in spades, if you do your part in spades this very well could be the Best Vacation Ever! Happy Sanibeling and Happy Shelling, Gary and Marti"

  • Wonderful family vacation in a beautiful home

    "We are a family of six who have recently returned from staying at this lovely home. We spent two weeks there over the Christmas and New Year holiday period and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was important for us to find a house that would be comfortable and homely and this house more than fulfilled our requirements. The pool is outstanding and the photographs simply do not do it justice. We visited the local beach several times but the large heated pool and lovely outside areas at the house meant that we spent the majority of our vacation enjoying the facilities that the house had to offer. We can agree with all of the previous, positive reviews of the property and would like to reiterate the fact that the owners of this beautiful house were great to deal with and readily available to answer any questions. We hope to return in the future!"

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.
