"This 1 bedroom apartment on 8th floor is well furnished and equipped. Owner very easy to deal with and communicate with. Situation of condos could not be better....step out on to beach. Shopping plaza across road very handy for drinks and food. View from balcony beautiful ....delightful to watch the sun go down sipping a glass of wine. A wonderful break in the sun before the cold of a British winter."

"We loved our stay in this condo! We stayed here with our two children, ages 4 and 7. The pictures are true to the unit and amenities. The unit is very clean and decorated to enhance the beach feel. Being a penthouse unit, there are great views of the bay and the Gulf in the distance. Otherwise, beautiful palm trees and flowers, a canal just below where we saw manatees swimming. We enjoyed relaxing on the lanai, there are games and nice tv's if you need a break inside. A beautiful group of condos between Estero Blvd and the bay, so it was a nice walk along a sidewalk to the beach or back to the tennis courts and fishing pier on the bay. The location is perfect...away from the spring break crowd but still close to restaurants, grocery store, etc. We enjoyed a long walk or short drive to the nearby plaza where there were good restaurants and ice cream. Our favorite was the Fish House restaurant behind the plaza by Fish Tale Marina. We also enjoyed the short drive over the bridge south to Lovers Key State Park. A beautiful park and beach! It was also great to have a washer/dryer in the unit. There is a closet full of everything you need for the beach and pool - noodles, sand toys, towels, chairs, and more - with a cart to get it all to the beach. Nancy is great to communicate with as well. We can't wait to go back!"

"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!"

"We have taken many vacations together as a family, but this one was the best ever. This place is perfect! Right across from the beach, awesome backyard with pool and tiki bar! It has everything you need! The large kitchen has anything you would want and the four bedrooms gave us all the room we needed. It is close to everything. We highly recommend this house!!!"
