Fabulous home in a great location to explore all that Florida has to offer.
"We are a family of four and have just returned from a fantastic stay in this fabulous Florida home. It was like home from home, spacious, comfortable and everything was there that we could ever of needed. The pool was clean and a great success with us all and we enjoyed the outdoor area for eating and relaxing.
This home is just perfect for exploring Florida. Nearby Sanibel and Captiva Island are a must. Island Cow restaurant on Sanibel is fun and serves great food at a reasonable price. We took a private boat charter with "Good Time Tours" just outside Fort Myers Beach and we can not recommend them enough. Our skipper Mike had fantastic knowledge of the local Marine and Wildlife and we saw plenty of Dolphins and Manatees very close up!!! Mike dropped us at a remote beach to do shelling and swimming and we also did a spot of sea fishing (both children caught and held Bonnet Head Sharks.
Disney World is just under 3 hours, we did a 2 day visit and Florida Keys also approx 3 hours. We visited The Keys at the end of our stay which was the perfect end to a perfect holiday.
There is so much to do and see in and around the area, too many to list. We look forward to returning as a family to do some more exploring!
P.S. You must visit Love Boat Ice Cream Parlour - 5 mins from the house and the best icecream!!!"

"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."

A great home that is close to just about everything
"This home is just as advertised.
The 4 bedrooms provided plenty of room for each of our children to have their own bed (it was my wife and I and our three children). One of the bedrooms features a day bed that is just off the master bedroom with a pocket door in between.
The pool table is a nice touch for when everyone needs a break from the swimming pool or all that the Fort Myers area has to offer.
The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and pots and pans which was useful over our 14 days there.
The pool is not huge but perfectly for relaxing or for kids to splash and play around. There are nice lounge chairs in the pool area and a table where we ate several lunches and a few dinners. There is a grill there as well on the pool deck.
The couches were comfortable and the TVs all worked well during the few days it rained or later at night when things were winding down. The kids were impressed with the speed of the wifi throughout the house.
The gated community is very nice and welcoming for morning or early evening walks.
The best part of this property is its location. You can be in Sanibel in 10-15 minutes and Fort Myers Beach in 10 minutes. Grocery stores are right nearby along with countless restaurants.
We have nothing but good things to say about our stay."

"We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful condo! It was well maintained, spotless, has spacious bathrooms, and the kitchen is equipped with everything one would need. The location of the condo is key! Far enough from the hustle and bustle, but close to churches, beaches, 4 star or better restaurants, shopping, and adventurous activities. Mike is always available and accommodating, and everyone at Mandolin Bay is friendly and helpful. We were even invited to the Super Bowl party at the clubhouse. You will LOVE this condo from the moment you walk in the door and will never want to leave!"
