  • Very Extended Family Vacation

    "We spent a week in October at this beach front home. My wife and I along with our daughter and her family, and my mother in law, father and an older aunt. In all, we had 7 adults and 3 children. Kids were 2, 8, and 13. My father is 87. We all loved the place. It is an older home, but is clean and very well suited for family vacations. Four bedrooms allowed all of our group to have a bedroom and their own bath which helps greatly when this large a group tries to get ready to go. The beach was wonderful and we could sit and view it from the enclosed lanai or the open deck. Pool was the most outstanding feature for our kids.....4 different levels with one being about 6 inches so you could walk around on top of the slab, but in the water, another level about 2 feet to wade, third was maybe 3.5 feet for midrange kids to swim in, then the main part slopes from about 4 foot to 6 foot or better at the deep end. Worked really well for our group with a 2 year old, 8 year old and 13 year old and adults. Kitchen/dining area was large enough for us to all eat together (important for our family) and the living room was also large enough or us to gather. The electronics and interior could use some updates, but we were not there for TV and electronics, and it was clean and well kept. We did not eat out a lot as with a group that size it is difficult, but it was obvious that there was plenty to do in terms of eating or nightlife. We liked the fact that it was a short trip to the Everglades. Spent a day down there doing Airboat, Swamp Buggy, gator show, wildlife viewing, etc. Really good day and the Airboat was my 87 year old father's favorite part. This destination and location will definitely go in my "for future vacations" file. The owner, Stephanie was also very open, honest, and easy to deal with. Recommend this location with no limitations."

  • 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!"

  • Nice large family home

    "Large enough for 4 families to co-exist with plenty of room for children and adults. Close to the beach and shopping. A few things needed fixed but nothing that really hampered the vacation."

  • what a great vacation!

    "Having stayed here before, I was excited at the opportunity for some true R & R, and the Riptide was just perfect! Conveniently located, comfortable, clean & classy, it was a true vacation. Tom, the property manager was so helpful with every little thing. It was so nice to be within walking distance of so many great shops & restaurants. I would recommend the Riptide to anyone!"
