Relaxing stay in beautiful Fort Myers canal home near the river
"My husband and I enjoyed our Feb. 2015 stay at Gloria's lovely home. We have been coming to Fort Myers for the past four years and this was the first time we rented a home off FMB. The home is just a block from the Caloosahatchee River off McGregor Blvd. It is close to some great restaurants and its proximity to downtown Fort Myers opened up our "stomping grounds" area from the beach alone to downtown Fort Myers and more sites and restaurants on Sanibel/Captiva. Gloria's home is fabulous inside and out. The yard is landscaped beautifully and the interior is spacious and decorated to a tee. On cooler days, it was enjoyable to just stay at "home" and read. Grocery stores, movie theaters, and shopping were 10 to 15 min. away. Publix, Costco, Home Goods, Bell Tower Shops, and boutiques were a hop, skip, and jump away via Whiskey Creek Blvd. We also went swimming at a community pool that was just 2 mi. away. We recommend getting a Sun Pass for the toll to Sanibel/Captiva as Gloria's home is close enough that you will find yourself returning there often. We love the coconut shrimp at Timbers on Sanibel and lunches at Grandma Dot's at the Marina. I also engaged in some retail therapy at the Tanger Outlet on the way to Sanibel. If you want to escape the cold and really relax, Gloria's home is the perfect choice."

"We have rented in Florida the past 3 Winters, and we're disappointed with (1) rental. Learn to ask a lot of questions before writing the check. This property is definitely a five star in every way. The community is friendly, and the owners offer southern hospitality in every sense. Amenities are 1st class and everything you need for a comfortable stay. Located in a quiet setting with the second fairway literally steps from the lanai."

"We two seniors left Michigan just as the weather turned sour. Having never considered spending a month in Florida before, we were delighted to find the Colonial Country Club Condo so cozy and inviting. It was decorated nicely and was very spacious. The King bed was wonderful. Most importantly for us, it was on the first floor. Our son came for a week and enjoyed having his own "suite". I especially loved the nature trail running right behind the condo, and the easy access to the pool. We spent time in the main pool, too. The location of the complex was within easy reach of many things to do. We went to the Movies at the Regal a few times. This will definitely be on the top of our list if we decide to "get out of town" again. We'll bring bicycles with us if we come back. Lots of space for biking. Owners always ready to answer questions, before our arrival and while we were settling in. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place with us."
