  • Highly Recommend

    "We recently spent 2 weeks here and loved our stay. The house was very clean and had all the amenities we required. The kids had a fantastic time playing in the pool and the location was perfect. Walking distance to the beach and many great restaurants. We would recommend this home to others. Looking forward to our next Florida vacation."

  • 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."

  • Family Getaway

    "We spent a week in this beautiful location at the end of February. We had lovely weather and lots of fun times on the beach. Our 2 1/2 year old Grandson had a fun time making sandcastles on the beach, and dipping his feet in the water. We did bring a kite along and had fun flying that on the beach. The wagons are so nice to haul all of the stuff. It is only a very short walk to the beach. We were able to go on a boat ride in Ft. Myers with some friends who live down there and we had dolphins swimming right behind the boat. We did ride the trolley a few times, but sometimes the traffic getting to the pier was so slow, it was quicker to walk. We enjoyed just sitting in the pool when the 8 month old was taking a nap, or when it was a little cooler out. We found some fun places to eat. We did cook some meals and the 2 full kitchens were really nice to have. The small bedroom was perfect for the little guy. Everything was just perfect! Thanks for a great time and lots of wonderful memories."

  • Perfect Family Vacation Spot

    "My husband and I spent 2 weeks at Gulf Breeze. Our children and grandchildren joined us for part of the time, and the house was perfect for all of us. The lower bedroom offered privacy for our adult children. The pool and spa area with 8 lounge chairs was spectacular and a big hit with everyone, young and old! We especially appreciated the safety features such as the raised door handles on the screened-in lanai and security gates on the upper deck, which kept the little ones safe. Every amenity was available to us: beach chairs and umbrellas, beach wagon, sand toys, cooler, grill, bikes, and lots of books for relaxed reading. The fact that we could easily cross the street to the beautiful beach with all our gear stowed in the wagon was a real plus - especially with 3 little ones in tow! The location is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square but many places (such as Publix supermarket and lots of great restaurants) are easily accessible via a short bike ride or walk. We loved starting and ending our day on the front porch overlooking Estero Blvd. The house and pool were very clean, and when we experienced a problem with the dishwasher, Todd sent his handyman right over to fix the issue. We hope to return to Gulf Breeze again soon. Thanks Todd and Mary for a wonderful vacation!"
