Old Florida Paradise
"We left Chicago In January minutes before a blizzard hit and landed in Fort Myers with the best weather in the country. We arrived at the Beachfront Tortuga and discovered Paradise in Old Florida. The view took our breath away. This romantic location has everything: sparkling waves, walks along sugar sand beaches, gorgeous sunsets; all in the front yard.
The galley kitchen is large and fully equipped with everything useful. There is ample dining seating for eight with additional seating on the deck. Beds are comfortable with flat screen televisions in every room. The master bedroom is beachside with a panoramic view of the water. Street side there is much off street parking and the noise from Estero Blvd. is minimal. Restaurants, stores and nightlife are very close. The two inside baths are recently renovated. There is an outside bath with shower in the laundry area which is very helpful.
The front yard is nicely secluded, extremely quiet, peaceful and presents beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico and its sunsets. The yard extends to the beach, has natural Florida landscaping and a brick bordered fire pit for those rare cool evenings.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning to paradise."

"This rental home is more than advertised. It is walking distance to beach , trolley is easy transportation around the beach. Pool is relaxing and clean. House is large and very accommodating for our large family. It's on a quiet street and if you want music and atmosphere, it's a short ride or walk away. I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone.we will be back. Thank you for the wonderful week."

"Just got back from this beach rental and I must say I am very pleased. I was there for a week long business trip and took advantage of the location. I could have stayed at a regular chain hotel but opted to have the accommodations that I would have at home. The rental price was a steal, since low season in Florida is summer time. $700 for the week plus all the fees and taxes totaled up to $950, went to Publix and spent another $100 for all I needed during that week, needless to say that my company was very pleased to know I did an entire week stay at less than $200 a day. The place is clean, in a great location and you just cross the street and have beach access. This side of the island is not as crowded as the main side where all the shops are at. This is more of a residential feel and you have the beach almost to yourself. The management company was great! I literally called them the afternoon before my check-in day and told them I needed accommodations for the next day... she was there just another ten minutes before leaving for the day but still managed to accommodate me. I arrived the next day and everything was there for me in the business lock box. The only negative I would say, and it did not present a problem for us really, is the AC situation. Florida is HOT and I am not sure on the insulation of the place but we had to keep the AC on at all times. Follow the directions they have written on the AC box and just let it run. Leave it on Auto and gradually lower the temp... It will be in the 80's when you get in the first day, lower it to 76, then to 74 and so on until you get your desired temp. It will cool down, it will just take time. Overall, I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for having this available for me in such short notice."
