  • absolutely wonderful

    "our recent stay was a vacation I will not be forgot.the home was more than we were hoping for and the layout of the house was perfect for a family vacation. the beach even though a public beach seemed like a private beach there was never more than a couple people out there. the house was absolutely beautiful and the amenities were top notch. It was very nice to have a washer and dryer on site the outdoor showers were perfect for coming off the beach. the view from the back deck was phenomenal. The Sun sets were perfect every night.we are planning on booking this home again."

  • Top notch condo

    "Had a wonderful vacation in this apartment. While Smugglers Cove is an older complex, it is very well maintained and has a spectacular location on the best part of the beach. The pool is warm and clean, and there are lots of lounge chairs available at the pool and on the grass by the beach. John, the owner, is very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed, even going to the trouble of getting grab bars for the tub when he knew we would have a senior with us. The apartment is nicely renovated and equipped with everything you could want. We found the location perfect for visiting Sanibel, Naples, Everglades etc, and the Publix is just a short walk away. Nothing beats a long walk along the beach at sunset, or eating breakfast on the lanai while watching pelicans fishing and dolphins jumping through the waves. If we come back to Fort Myers Beach again we won't even consider any other apartment. We couldn't do better than this."

  • Great Location - Beautiful Views - Walk right out to the beach

    "Everything was great with location and views. The house has a lot of space and laid out well. You are in walking distance to the Rod & Reel Pier for eating out, drinks, and fishing. You can even walk to the public beach if you want but we never had a reason to. We enjoyed walking right out the back and swimming in beautiful clear water with white sand. We will definitely stay again in future. The only small negatives would be the worn-out outside lawn furniture and interior needs updating (new furniture, kitchen). Still not a big deal - it didn't make our stay any less enjoyable. We loved it!"

  • Our Family Vacation

    "We stayed at Gulf Breeze the week after the Fourth of July. We searched quite a bit for a place my wife and I, our two sons and their wives, and grandkids could really enjoy. We chose Fort Myers Beach and boy were we ever happy! We have used VRBO almost exclusively over the past 6 years and the Gulf Breeze was one of our favorites. The house was as advertised and the amenities were very good. The pool area was outstanding and we spent the majority of the time in the pool with our grandkids and kids! Other than a wild thunderstorm that played havoc with the pool and spa control panel, the house was great. Just enough room for the 6 adults and 2 small grandkids. Let me get to the best part of the house and that was it's location. Far enough away from the Times Square congestion to be wonderful, but close enough to pop up there a couple of times as well without a long drive. The location to all of the restaurants and the Publix grocery were excellent. We highly recommend Nervous Nellies, Yucatan Beach Stand, and Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille for great food and live entertainment. Times Square also has some good eating and a wonderful place to sit and have a cold one while listening to some of the island performers. You cannot end the evening without stopping by The Royal Scoop for some great ice cream treats or the Magic City Slush for some delicious Italian Ice. The location for beach goers is fantastic. We simply walked across the street every day to get to the white sand beach. The waverunner rental was right there so what could have been better!! Got to see some dolphins and a manatee up close on a jetski! The owners have pretty much thought of everything for any renters. Having access to the garage for beach chairs, wagons, bikes, and toys was a pleasant offer. The gas grill was great for burgers, dogs, and pizza on the grille. It was not the most elegant place we have ever rented but it was by far one of the best! We will be back here to the Gulf Breeze to stay again! Great job Todd, Mary, Ken, and Dave the pool guy! Thank You for a wonderful time."
