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."

Beautiful, tranquil setting. Comfortable updated home with everything we needed.
"We loved the quiet location of the home. Sitting pool side and watching the dolphins and bird life is incredible. The home is well updated, generously equipped for cooking and barbequing (gas grill), beach chairs and umbrella were provided. The owners were very accommodating to deal with, as were the surrounding neighbors. One of our favorite things to do...besides having just a short drive to Sanibel and Bunche Beach & Preserve...was to walk around the water's edge of Shell Pt. Village at sunset and watch MORE dolphins. We loved our stay."

"I recently relocated here from Iowa- I had no idea where to stay short term- I clearly made the best choice! Art and Alice have a beautifully furnished 2 bedroom condo with one of the best views on the property!! I arrived on a Sunday and the condo watcher had the unit immaculate and ready for my impromptu arrival! It is wonderfully equipped with more than enough dishes, cookware, towels, etc. The condo is updated and simply beautiful! It is conveniently close to the beach, restaurants and grocery. The complex is gated and amenities and grounds are very well up kept. I had a fantastic experience- you will too!!"

"This lovely vacation spot is perfect for so many. Gorgeous views, convenient to everything, a beautiful, well-appointed unit, charming and helpful owners. What's not to like? We found it particularly convenient to many kayak rentals. Four paddling trips in 7 days!"
