  • Sweet cottage

    "This is a sweet little cottage perfect for the two of us. Great location. Anne-Marie, the owner, and Scott, the property manager, are very involved and try to make your stay a good one. Anna Maria is a wonderful place to visit--great for the over 50 crowd who want to have a good time. Don't miss Rod and Reel Pier! There are plenty of affordable restaurants and bars and plenty to do. A great vacation!"

  • Very Nice!!

    "The unit was just as described by owners, who are extremely easy to communicate with. Everything was available that one could possibly need, beach chairs, towels, coolers, soaps, shampoos, lotions, linens and even nail polish remover! The kitchen was well stocked with all necessary cooking and eating supplies. And it even offered 2 coffee pots - the Keurig unit as well as a standard coffee pot. The kitchen had a small high top 2 seater table which was perfect for coffee, breakfast and reading our iPads and laptops. Shower in master bathroom was excellent, strong pressure and adjustable nozzle, while the second bathroom had a rainhead shower. The laundry room was equipped with all supplies and a new HE Washer and Dryer. The unit was extremely clean and comfortable. It was within easy walking distance to the tennis courts, gym, pool and clubhouse. I would have rated the unit with 5 stars but there was just one item that we found troublesome - the mattress in the Master Bedroom was uncomfortable and noisy. The mattress in the second bedroom was very comfortable. Wyndemere is a beautiful Country Club with pristine tennis courts and excellent tennis staff. It is located in a great part of Naples and one can easily get to 5th Avenue and 3rd Street to enjoy the many wonderful restaurants there. We would rent here again."

  • Perfect Location and Fabulous House

    "We had a fabulous week on Matlacha Island. The house was a wonderful surprise. It turns out to be fabulously laid out, comfortable seating and lots of it. The back yard was truly a treat. We spend lots of time on the dock, lots of dolphins, birds, and fish. Unfortunately, We only had 2 days that the pool was warm. The property manager and caretakers are great! The kitchen was well equipped and inviting. The Lanai was spectacular. Walking the neighbor was fun too with all the beautiful landscaping and birds and was very festive with Holiday lights and decorations. We had such great weather, no rain. It is a wonderful house and awesome location to celebrate a 60th birthday. We had family and friends dropping in throughout the week. The house was perfect for celebrating. We enjoyed Bert’s, The Ole Fish House, the Perfect Cup, Great Lick's, and Pizza Bella. We enjoyed cooking and grilling at the house in the evenings so as not to miss the breathtaking sunsets. We spent a day on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. We spent a day exploring around Pine Island. We saw white Pelicans there, amazing. Would love to come back again. We would definitely recommend this home? We left there with our hearts full! Gratefully"

  • New Years escape

    "we loved our stay at the Cape Casa House. There were 3 couples in our group and the set up of having a bathroom in each bedroom was exactly what we were looking for, and would definitely return to this property. The house was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed and more. Much to our delight we were able to use the pool as well during our visit over the holidays. There were plenty of great restaurants in the area and the house is situated in a very nice neighborhood."

Florida South West Travel Tips

From alligator tours to breathtaking beaches to parasailing, southwest Florida boasts more than its fair share of things to do. It embodies untouched natural beauty for nature lovers and families alike. Take the edge off at this serene region of the Sunshine State!

Top Activities

Want to spot some prehistoric gators? Airboats & Alligators in Lake Trafford features more than 1500 acres filled with alligators, native birds, expert staff and amazing tours. Fly across the water in an airboat, where you’ll catch more than a glimpse of these wild beasts and other wildlife. It is also famous for fishing, so be ready to reel in some bluegill, bass and shellcracker. Rent a pontoon with your friends or get the adrenaline pumping with alligator sightings.

Naples Botanical Garden: Delight in the dazzling gardens. The walk tours last anywhere from one hour to a full day depending on what you’re in the mood for, so set up camp for the day or simply stroll around at your leisure to gaze at the beautiful flowers and plants. Bring your kids to the Children’s Garden for the butterfly house, tree house and fountains. Afterward, have lunch in the midst of this subtropical paradise.

Smugglers Cove Adventure Miniature Golf: The whole family will love the 18 outdoor holes of miniature golf over rushing waterfalls, mysterious caves and tropical plants. It has been voted “Florida’s Best Mini Golf” by Florida Monthly Magazine readers three years in a row. You can even feed live gators at the cove. This place is an ideal family outing!

Estero Bay Preserve State Park: Situated between Fort Myers and Naples, this park was the first aquatic preserve established in the state. You can find fiddler crabs, gopher tortoises and a diversity of wildlife among the trees and shores here. Enjoy the miles of trails that provide gorgeous vistas for hiking or biking. If you want to discover the park on the water, go kayaking or canoeing and take a little dip to cool off.

Adventure Water Sports: Sail boats, wave-runners, kayaks, dolphin sightings - you name it - there are all sorts of fun water activities you can enjoy here. Located right on Fort Myers Beach, this adventure business features guided dolphin tours around the island. You’ll zoom across the waves on a jet ski on a 90-minute journey beside mangrove forests, quiet bays and the open water to scout the dolphins. Tours depart daily at 9:30 a.m. For a day of fun in the sun, Adventure Water Sports has got it all.

Best Beaches

Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota opens up to the glimmering waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Explore the mangrove forests or sail the boat out for some fishing, where you can reel in pompano and snook. The waters are calm and courteous to swimmers old and young. In for an adventure? Try parasailing for a bird’s eye view of the gulf. In 2011, it was rated the “No. 1 Beach in America” by Dr. Beach. For some quality relaxation (since siesta means nap), put this beach on the must-do list.

Swing by Englewood Beach for family fun. You can spot dolphins popping up through the turquoise waters. There are basketball courts, barbecue grills and volleyball courts that’ll turn any day into one packed with activity. Other amenities include horseshoes, picnic areas and a playground.

Bring the crew camping along the calm waters of Marco Island. It’s quiet and serene - in other words, it’s a leading alternative to what you’d find in Southwestern Florida’s Miami Beaches. Recapture some peace of mind fishing offshore, or hit the snooze button in a hammock on the beach. The weather is perfect year-round, so make sure you don’t miss this tranquil opportunity!

Sanibel Island is a popular locale for shelling. Find gems of the sea here, as there’s more variety than you could ask for. Brimming with roughly 400 species of bright-colored seashells, you’ll be able to find varieties of all shapes and sizes. Due to the protective boomerang shape of the island, its shores are known to bring in shells in one piece.

Shopping and Dining

To pick up a souvenir or two, make your way to the outdoor Bell Tower Mall for some top-of-the-line stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Jacobson’s department store and dozens of boutiques. In Naples, hit up the Boardwalk Shops and Dining for a Key West-style evening. You’ll also be able to find some delicious eats here.

For top-notch restaurants, check out Capital Grille in Naples. It offers legendary dry-aged steaks and the freshest seafood on the coast. Did we mention there’s more than 5,000 bottles of wine you can sip and swirl?

Another fantastic meal can be found at Cibo, an Italian restaurant with an award-winning chef. This place serves mouth-watering antipasti and roasted chicken breast that you've been craving.

With a variety of beaches and outdoor fun, southwest Florida is a top-tier getaway for vacationers nationwide.
