Recent Smuggler's Cove reviews

  • Perfect!

    "We escaped the cold Northeast and arrived in paradise! The condo is beautiful, better than the pictures. We had all the supplies we needed - I cooked a variety of breakfasts every morning. The beach was right there and we had many relaxing (or invigorating) walks. Sunsets were beautiful. We had three late teen-aged boys with us and they had a great time riding their bikes to Time Square, sometimes several times per day. We slept with the sliders to our master bedroom and the living room (one son was on the very comfortable pullout) open most nights to hear the surf. This spot is a great spot to get to all that Southwest Florida has to offer, although I would recommend heading south to exit through Bonita Springs rather than Time Square. We rented a car and having a dedicated spot was nice. The Publix is within walking/biking distance. I would recommend the Bayfront Bistro, just beyond Publix, for lunch, and Heidi's Bistro (German) for dinner, which was outstanding. I didn't think I would like German food so much but it was delicious!"

  • Top notch condo

    "Had a wonderful vacation in this apartment. While Smugglers Cove is an older complex, it is very well maintained and has a spectacular location on the best part of the beach. The pool is warm and clean, and there are lots of lounge chairs available at the pool and on the grass by the beach. John, the owner, is very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed, even going to the trouble of getting grab bars for the tub when he knew we would have a senior with us. The apartment is nicely renovated and equipped with everything you could want. We found the location perfect for visiting Sanibel, Naples, Everglades etc, and the Publix is just a short walk away. Nothing beats a long walk along the beach at sunset, or eating breakfast on the lanai while watching pelicans fishing and dolphins jumping through the waves. If we come back to Fort Myers Beach again we won't even consider any other apartment. We couldn't do better than this."

  • Great Value

    "Great place to stay in Ft Myers Beach. Far enough away from the pier area to be quiet, close enough to take a short trolley ride. Clean and well decorated. Mr. Payne (the owner) even called us during our stay to see how we were doing. Thank you Sir"

  • Very, Very Nice!

    "We had a wonderful time. It was so great that we hope to do it next year. Everything was clean and comfortable. Almost everything we needed was provided. Loved walking the beach, watching the sunset, listening to the waves at night. It was like music to us. Always fun to watch the dolphins at play. It was nice and quiet, which we really appreciated. It was great just walking out the door and onto the beach. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank you."
