Recent Fort Myers Beach reviews

  • Great Condo

    "My wife and I stayed here for a week recently. I must say that it was fantastic in every way. The location couldn't have been better - we had an amazing view of the Gulf and close to lots of places to eat/drink. Half a dozen restaurants, 7-11 store, CVS pharmacy and liquor store all just directly across the street. Fish House restaurant was excellent!! Really loved the beach, the best I've ever seen. Not crowded at all. Lots of place to pitch your umbrella. Lots of birds to watch on the beach and in the nearby lagoon. Also enjoyed seeing a dolphin or two swim by almost every day. Trolley ride up and down the strip is $0.75 or you can buy an all day pass. Use this to go to Publix a couple miles north. Great location if you don't need or have a car. Highly recommend it."

  • Phenomenal Vacation

    "This review will sound very repetitive - after reading all of the other reviews the experience we had was exactly as it has been described. The lagoon gave us possibly the most unique vacation experience we have ever had, sitting by the pool watching all of the wildlife. We have never been on vacation where we spent so much time just relaxing on the property. At some point we were visited in the back yard by osprey, heron, egret and ducks and several birds we couldn't identify. Although most reviews mentioned the dolphins, I did not expect to see them every day at all hours - often right beside or under the dock. The 2 kayaks are very convenient and easy to launch from the dock. It really is hard to think of a more relaxing experience. Both bedrooms are well-appointed and very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need. We had our 6 year old daughter with us and she loved the pool and the wildlife - and the grounds are beatuful and a safe setup with a fenced area separate from the pool and lagoon area. For people with a dog, there is a very large off-leash dog beach a 5-minute drive away, and the entire Fort Myers Beach is dog friendly if they remain on leash. Tedd lived up to his reputation from the other reviews by responding to any request we had (there wasn't much, the house has everything) happily and within minutes. We ate at many great restaurants, Matanzas at the base of the bridge was our favourite and Charlie's was very convenient being only a few blocks away and had a great salad bar. We had a great time on a kayak tour with Adventures Kayaking which also made us really appreciate the comings and goings of the animals in the lagoon. The location of the house is great, on the quiet end of the island but a short drive or trolley to the restaurants and grocery stores. We got home yesterday and are already planning a longer return trip for next year."

  • Perfect family vacation home!

    "The best Spring Break ever thanks in part to our wonderful accommodations at the Desert Rose! Three generations from California, Texas, Indiana and Florida enjoyed this wonderful Key West inspired house! You will feel at home here. The master bedroom is on the third floor with its own bath and walk out patio. There are two bedrooms downstairs which share a bathroom. There are plenty of linens to meet your needs for the week. I think each room had a TV but I do not believe any of us turned them on! That is a real vacation!!! Skip, the owner, has many books and movies for you to enjoy if you choose. Outside the main floor is a beautiful deck with a hammock which several of us took naps on! So peaceful and calming. The French doors open into a huge family room/kitchen area. The NCAA tournament was watched a few times on a nice flat screen TV! There is a futon and two couches which were great for the kids to sleep on. Seriously, plenty of room in this place! The kitchen had just about everything you need to cook fabulous meals! There is a Weber grill on the porch. Off the kitchen is a laundry room with brand new, large capacity washer and dryer. Out from the kitchen was the porch where we spent a great deal of time. It was kind of a rustic, western theme. At the round table we played cards everyday and build memories with the little kids! Downstairs you will find a pub style, poolside patio. There is a dart board where we had a couple dart competitions! The pool.....wonderful!!!! It was perfect!!! The beach was a short walk away and we went everyday for walks and even flew kites! Skip has a lot of beach toys, beach chairs and a wagon to cart everything. We watched several sunsets and loved the location! The trolley pick up is right down the road and very convenient. One thing I was hesitant about when we booked was the fact that the owner lived on the first level. No problem! In fact, it was nice to have him around. If we needed anything, he was extremely helpful. We look forward to seeing him again when we book this house in the future!!!! Thank you Skip!"

  • Relaxing Vacation in Wonderful Condo

    "This unit was in the best location on the island. Traffic was minimal and the north end made it so easy to come and go from the island. A state park is steps away as is the white sand beach. The condo was immaculately clean and well equipped as can be-- beach equipment, plenty of kitchen utensils , trash bags, soap etc. It was furnished tastefully and had a nautical decor throughout. The bedding was extremely comfortable and clean. Great views of the Gulf from the balcony. Linda was the best-so responsive, accommodating and friendly. She has lived on FMB for a long time so she offered great suggestions for restaurants, etc. You can't go wrong selecting Linda's unit."
