  • Wonderful Villa on Siesta Key!

    "What a great place to stay! I have been coming to Siesta Key for 20 years and this is one of the best places I've stayed. Updates are great. Love the split bedroom and bathroom floor plan. Nice and quiet with no neighbors above or below you! Very well maintained with everything you need and many extras!!"

  • Incredible Marco Island Combination of a Large Pool and Dock to Enjoy !

    "Our group had a wonderful time renting RIVERSIDE on Marco Island for spring break 2015. Tom was extremely helpful through the process and he cares about you having a great experience. The home was larger than we expected and has a simply beautiful view of the Marco River. The pool area was spotless and the pool is unusually large for a dockside home. The hot tub worked great and the view of boats passing by while lounging in the pool or hot tub is about as relaxing as it gets ! The home was clean and the layout affords both privacy and a nice common area between the kitchen, dining area, and family room. The kitchen was well stocked and Tom provides a binder with home instructions and restaurant menus ect. The dock area is a blast for fishing ! You simply add shrimp (fresh or frozen we learned) and are practically guaranteed a bite. We caught 5 species of fish (including a crab) while there and we can see where the snook light would be a great bonus during high tidal seasons. While we didn't rent a boat, there appears to be more than enough docking space. The home is close to everything Marco has to offer and only a minute or two from the grocery stores. Also to note is that you can be in Naples in appx 20 minutes and we also enjoyed both 5th Avenue and the Naples beach. We have not been back to Marco in nearly 8 years and we were pleased at the progress on island including their access (bridge expansions) and combed beaches. The beach public sunrise Easter service was inspirational. Excellent home, excellent owner, and an excellent experience !"

    "We found the property was everything that we required and was clean and well maintained. Easy access and we would recommend it to anybody. We would definitely use it again in the future. Also the owner was in constant contact to make sure everything was ok or if we had any problems. We had a great time."

Fort Myers Beach Travel Tips

More than 6,200 people call Fort Myers Beach home. This town located on Estero Island wasn't officially incorporated until December 1995, making it a newer Floridian hotspot. Although Fort Myers Beach may be small, more than 1.8 million visitors flock there every year to enjoy the beaches, fishing, shopping, dining, golf and entertainment along the Gulf.

There's no undertow in Fort Myers Beach, making it the "World's Safest Beach" and perfect for families who want to get their toes wet. The entire island is 7 miles long, a nice walk or jog for those who want to work in a little exercise on their trip.

The area that was once home to Native Americans and Spaniards is a favorite among tourists who dine on "pink gold" shrimp and celebrate the fishing industry with the week-long Shrimp Festival held in March.

There's a lot to do on the tiny island of Estero including water sports, beach activities and outdoor and indoor attractions. There are 25 public beach accesses on the Gulf side of Estero Island that are marked for easy spotting.
