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!"

"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."

"Third year school friends and I vacationed @ Casa De Cupre. We love the beauty of the house / ocean views / sunsets from the deck enjoying "happy hour" and dinner. Then its movie night together in the spacious living room.
In the mornings, we walk down to the Ft Myers Pier and back (approx 4 miles) or you can take the trolley down to enjoy shopping / restaurants. Plus, Amy is always available to answer your questions."

"This home had everything we needed. It is directly across the street from the beach. The pool is gorgeous and kept at the perfect temperature! It is close to a grocery store and had all the kitchen supplies we needed! Will definitely be back soon!"
