Great vacation house!
"My family and I rented Tom & Genies house for a week so we could decide if we wanted to relocate to Florida.We absolutely loved the house and the location!The house had everything that you could possibly need for a comfortable stay!Very clean and well kept!The area was also great with all of the conveniences such as shopping,dining,rentals,etc. the neighbors were pretty quite,didn't see anyone outside much.A few really good places to eat were First Round Draft on Del Prado.
Cappone's Coal Fired Pizza in down town Fort Meyers was a trip.They were celebrating half way to Christmas and everyone was dressed for Christmas!!! Great pizza! And our favorite place to eat was Pinchers Crab Shack! Loved their seafood and 2 for 1 happy hr all day! We also rented a boat and tied it to the dock right at the house. I do want to warn you that we did go to paradise Boat Rentals the day after we arrived to rent a boat and they were really nice there but tricked us into renting a boat for $600 for one day! The guy there said without a reservation there were no boats anywhere to rent in cape coral and that we better rent one the day before we go home from them if we want to rent a boat. In a panic we gave him our credit card and after he ran the card he told us no refunds even if the weather was bad! We left and was driving and then we spotted The Boat House and thought we would stop in and they had plenty of boats!!! We ended up getting a nice boat for 2 days for $400 !!!! We really felt tricked and ripped off by Paradise Boat Rentals! And when we did go pick up the $600 boat from Paradise Boat it was bigger but old,the navigation didn't work,and every time another boat would speed past us big waves of water would pour into our boat making me panic!!! Not fun!I hope Tom doesn't recommend them to his guests anymore! But besides the boat experience everything else was great!!! And by the way we are moving to Cape Coral in April!!! Thanks Tom and Genie!"

"We stayed at this wonderful property back in May. We came with a group of six adult and the three bedrooms allowed for ample room for everyone. The location was perfect for all of our planned activities while we were in town. You can get nearly anywhere in 20 minutes, including Fort Myers beach. The grocery store was just up the block and allowed for many an impromptu meal. We loved the spacious kitchen, cooking at home was a highlight of the trip. We enjoyed grilling out too! The home was wonderfully maintained. The pool was gorgeous and the prefect swimming spot for a hot Florida day. We highly recommend this home for any vacation, whether for families, individuals, or groups. We cannot say enough positive things about the property. We had a spectacular time and cannot wait to return in the future."

"We just returned from Bob and Elaine's home in Cape Coral, and the only sad part about the whole vacation was putting the keys back in the lock box. This truly was our home away from home. Very well laid out home that gave us some separation from our kids, IF and when we were inside. All four of us commented on how well we were able to sleep in the beds. The kitchen was beyond well stocked. This home literally has everything you need. But the best part was the pool area. Other than our trip to the Everglades and the need for more groceries, we never left the lanai. My wife and I spent every morning there with our books and coffee. And when the kids woke up, we still just lounged and swam. Such a good, relaxing vacation. A very enthusiastic two thumbs up from us."

"We stayed at Bayside 8/8-8/15 and it was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. The boat was so much fun. We took it out every day. Went to Sanibel and Captiva Islands and boated to many restaurants. The house was super clean and comfortable. We loved hanging by the beautiful pool overlooking the canal and it was great to come back to our own wonderful space. We will definitely be back."
