  • Perfect Christmas Vacation!

    "The description and pictures do not do this property justice. This cottage is beautifully decorated and well maintained. You do not need anything other than your personal belongings and food as it has all the necessities you require: stocked kitchen utensils, quality linens and towels including beach towels, beach bag (thankfully since I forgot mine), chairs and beach toys. The location is perfect and within walking distance to restaurants, bike rentals, shopping, Topps Grocery and one of the local churches. The screened porch was the perfect place for breakfast in the mornings and cocktails in the evening while watching the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see. There are numerous options for water sports/activities along the beach. We opted for bike rides, beach walks, reading and relaxing. The beach in front of the cottage is not as crowded as the area down by the pier. My husband and I have traveled to Ft Myers Beach numerous times. This was the first time at this property but we are already making plans for our next visit here. Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven on earth with us!"

  • Florida Paradise!

    "Just returned to chilly NJ after a wonderful week at the Sandbox house in Ft Myers Beach FL. Went with extended family with kids ages 9 - 12 and their grandparents. The house was just as described, right on the beach, with plenty of space and amazing views from all angles. The location was great, with a 5 min walk to Times Square with lots of restaurants and bars. Every evening we'd enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the deck or on the beach! Weather was perfect with mid 80 days and mid 60's at night. The owners were very accommodating with early check in and late check out due to our flight times. I can't wait to go back next year!"

  • Wonderful Easter week vacation

    "This house was amazing. When I walked in I was pleasantly surprised. This was the first time we used vrbo. Helen the owner was great to work with. She responds back with any questions or whatever you need right away. The house had every amenity imaginable. It was great being so close to the beach if you forgot anything or wanted to go home for lunch. The convenience of being so close to downtown is nice to. You can park your car and forget about it for a week. My husband, 13 year old son, and our yorkie all had a great time. We will definitely come back."

  • Perfect location to relax and rejuvinate with family.

    "Tom and Sue (owners of Mango Street home) were excellent about answering questions prior to our arrival so we knew exactly what to expect and bring with us. We were totally comfortable staying in their home for our family vacation. We had 8 adults so we filled every bedroom. The walk to the beach was easy to do. There were beach chairs, coolers and a cart to haul stuff to and fro in the garage to use which eliminated any additional rental costs to visit the beach. We didn't get to check out the little restaurant at the end of the street because they were being sprayed for termites... LOL. The covered pool area was perfect to get away from the beach and just float on a raft. Mango trees line the back of the pool area so some part of the pool is shaded nearly all day. A few of us rented bikes to trek up and down the beach. Everything you could want is within easy walking distance on the island but we chose to rent a minivan to get us around. We toured the area and checked out Jungle Erv's adventures... well worth the drive off the island! Thanks Tom and Sue for a great vacation!"
