  • Quiet Little Slice of Paradise

    "My family and our dogs spent a few days here this past April and we had a blast. The house had everything we needed and was literally only steps away from a lovely uncrowded beach. It's on a very quiet street and we all enjoyed sitting outside under the stars in the evening listening to the waves roll in. The owner was very responsive to our needs and you can tell he has put a great deal of thought and care into his property. If you are looking for a spot to enjoy the beach but don't want to deal with the crowds and noise I highly recommend this house."

  • Perfect Christmas Vacation!

    "The description and pictures do not do this property justice. This cottage is beautifully decorated and well maintained. You do not need anything other than your personal belongings and food as it has all the necessities you require: stocked kitchen utensils, quality linens and towels including beach towels, beach bag (thankfully since I forgot mine), chairs and beach toys. The location is perfect and within walking distance to restaurants, bike rentals, shopping, Topps Grocery and one of the local churches. The screened porch was the perfect place for breakfast in the mornings and cocktails in the evening while watching the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see. There are numerous options for water sports/activities along the beach. We opted for bike rides, beach walks, reading and relaxing. The beach in front of the cottage is not as crowded as the area down by the pier. My husband and I have traveled to Ft Myers Beach numerous times. This was the first time at this property but we are already making plans for our next visit here. Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven on earth with us!"

  • Romantic Getaway

    "My husband and I stayed at this lovely condo and will definitely return. It is brand new, immaculate, tastefully and comfortably decorated and close to all amenties which are some of the best we have seen. We went to the pool every day, ate lunch at the club restaurant, played pickleball, and walked hours around the many ponds. The master king bedroom had a premium quality mattress and down duvet with lush pillows. The master bath was first class. We mostly ate out in Naples as so many good restaurants nearby, but the kitchen was well-equipped for all our needs. Happy to recommend!"

  • Simply the Best

    "For several years, we have had the pleasure of making an annual visit to Cheri and Kevin’s condo at Sea Winds. The unit is well maintained and is constantly being updated. The work that is put into this unit is very obvious. It is always very clean and well supplied. The furniture is comfortable and the balcony has stunning views of the beach, the sea and particularly the sunset. In comparison to prior rentals we had on Marco, this unit is top notch in all regards. The Sea Winds building itself is well maintained with constant attention to the grounds and swimming pool. It is very secure and the parking is convenient. Sea Winds is at the southern, quiet end of the island. Cheri and Kevin are a pleasure to do business with. Communication is excellent. They are proactive in ensuring that all your needs are met. They are most considerate and really want you to enjoy your visit."

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.
