  • Get what you pay for ...

    "We paid less than $100 a night for a place with a view (one block away) of the beach, so we didn't expect a great deal. The unit was clean, the mattress was good and the bathroom had been updated. We had no problems hooking up to someone's wireless internet (thanks, friend). The unit is small and a week would be about as long as we would want to spend there. The kitchen is especially tight and could be re-fitted with a few more necessities .. spoons, plates etc.. The pool was nice but unheated and the washer and dryers nearby worked well for a small price. It's not the Ritz but we aimed low price-wise and it worked well for us. All in all, there were no surprises. It was worth the money."

  • Everything We Needed and expected

    "I think I may book condos instead of hotel rooms whenever possible for future trips. This condo was perfect for us. Plenty of room to spread out, all the anemities we needed and a short 5 minute walk to the beach. Condo was clean and well upkept. Very good location for getting to restaurants and grocery stores. There is plenty to do on the island to keep you busy. If that is what you want. We enjoyed doing as little as possible at times. If you want to take a good fishing charter, we would suggest Captain Dieter of captivacharter. Very knowlegeable and friendly. Thanks for sharing your condo with us."

  • Plenty of Room

    "This property was so nice and quiet. It is very spacious and clean with 3 bedrooms upstairs, the kitchen, and 2 sittings rooms along with the outside deck. The downstairs has another bedroom and full bath and again a very large sitting area which takes up the whole bottom floor. This bottom floor would be great for someone looking for their own space. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of basics to get you started as well as the bathrooms. The pool area is nice and has many trees to give shade area too. If you are boating the dock area is perfect and you are just seconds from the entrance into Bimini Bay.....no long canal rides. Lastly, the house is in such a prime location on this end of the Island. On one side is the Sand Bar Restaurant area and the other side is the pier area. The only thing I wished they had were a couple of bikes because there is plenty of riding area around. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home and we look forward to coming back next year!"

  • Looking for Paradise?

    "If you have been looking for a quiet and friendly paradise...this is the place!! Walk out to the beach or the pool. Spectacular sunsets. You can watch friendly and docile dolphin and manatee right from your lanai. Wonderful local cuisine and quaint shopping less than 5 minutes away. I have been visiting for over 10 years. No need to look for any place else!"

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.
