  • Fantastic house for a family trip!

    "What a great place to spend some quality family time! Our 3 boys LOVED the pool and spent many happy hours playing games with each other and the pool toys. The area around the pool is very comfortable with numerous lounging and seating options. There are plenty of large windows (good sight lines) overlooking the pool from all of the living areas. All doors to the pool area can be secured with appropriately located (high) locks and chimes/alarms that can be easily turned on to help provide peace of mind that kiddos do not find an unsupervised path to the pool! The keyboard and electronic drum set were also a big hit with our boys. The master bedroom is extremely spacious and is very comfortable with its own bathroom. The master (king bed) is separate from the other bedrooms, great for a couple that enjoys hanging out with family but also appreciates some privacy. The second bedroom (king bed) is also very comfortable and has an attached bathroom with tub and shower. It is not as large as the master, but is very comfortable for a second couple who appreciates their own bathroom! The doors to bedroom 2, bedroom 3 (queen bed), bedroom 4 (two twin beds), and the third bathroom are all accessed from a small hallway, so these bedrooms work particularly well for parents who want their kiddos within earshot at night. The gas grill on the pool deck was great and all of the appliances in the house are very good quality and worked well. The kitchen is well-stocked with plenty of utensils, pots, pans, tableware, flatware, etc. The interior of the house is nicely decorated but very "livable" - it feels very much like a home rather than a rental! One final touch was very helpful labeling of the switches for various lights, fans, etc. right on the switch plates. This made it very easy to get used to the house. We had a fantastic time!"

  • 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."

    "Second year staying in this complex. Very clean and comfortable. Three restaurants and the beach are all within a five minute walk. With Spring Break in full swing, the area is quiet and peaceful. Karen is very nice to work with and was helpful a year ago in finding lodging for myself. I hope to return."

  • Home away from home

    "We had a great week at your house! The furnishings were beautiful and also very comfortable. The master bed was more comfortable than my own bed at home! The townhouse was furnished and decorated exactly the way I would have done it myself if it were my own beach house, which is why i describe it as "home away from home." The main floor bathroom was a little outdated but I was there for the beach, not the bathroom! We really enjoyed having lots of space to spread out as we were there with my mom, two preschool age daughters, and a baby. As for the beach, when it is really hot, the walk across the main road to the beach with young kids is too much. So, we ended up driving to the public beach most days. I actually really enjoyed that because they have a great snack bar, bathrooms relatively close, and lifeguards. When going to the beach with little ones, all of those things are a plus. Thanks for sharing your beach toys and towels too. That was really nice! It was also so helpful to have the cart to carry stuff down to the beach! The pools were both really nice too. The only thing i had any real issue with, and the reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5, was the garage. I'm not sure how long it had been since previous guests were there, but the (empty) trash cans smelled extraordinarily bad and there were 100's of dead flies on the garage floor. We left the garage door open to air it out. My husband sprayed cleaner in the cans and the stench still wouldn't go away. You had to hold your nose getting things in and out of the garage. We didn't park in it or put our stuff in it, because we didn't want to have to smell that. So, if there's a way to make sure someone checks on the trash situation every week, i think that would help. Or maybe it just gets so hot in there that nothing helps. I don't know. I'd talk to your neighbors and see if they have the same issue. Also, just so other travelers are clear, the main floor is not on the ground floor. The ground floor belongs to another unit. It ended up being no big deal but there was some miscommunication about the "first floor", i thought you meant ground floor and just wanted to make clear for others who might not understand. I would not have cared at all except that we were traveling with my mom who doesn't do stairs much... Thanks again for a great week."
