  • Perfect Little House

    "I agree with all that has been said about this house. The outside spaces, both front and back, are wonderful with wooden decks, not just bare ground like many of the similar houses in the village. We had 2 adult couples which suited the house fine. I personally think that the inside living area would be a little tight for 6 unrelated adults, but the large outdoor spaces make up the difference. It is one of the best equipped rental houses we have stayed in, with great beach chairs, beach umbrellas, and a beach wagon. The mosquitos and noseeums were almost non-existant which was very surprising for a house with such beautiful lush vegetation. The hot tube was great. We rented through the realty company without any contact with the owner...everything was as smooth as could be. The washer and dryer are outside under an overhang next to the house, but it is no problem. Overall a great little house that I recommend wholeheartedly."

  • Fun in the Sun!

    "This is our fifth year heading back to Seawinds and was every bit as special this year as the previous four years. The house is so fully equipped, including a crockpot, that we would never need to leave however we did to enjoy some great meals out at the local restaurants. The large open living space is perfect for entertaining which we did daily as the rest of the family rented nearby. Our place was the gathering space for sunrise walks on the beach which was steps away, meals, and lots of family time. If you are looking for a clean and comfortable place with great location then Seawinds is for you!"

  • Return Visitor

    "My husband and I just completed our third annual month-long stay in this unit and found it just as welcoming as it was on our previous stays. The owners continually update so that the condo is clean and comfortable. This year they purchased new mattresses for the bedrooms-very comfy! We especially like the sectional sofa that includes a chaise lounge as it accommodates both my tall husband and me reclining at the same time. We had a faucet washer blow during our stay. As soon as we called, Karen was on it and had a plumber in to fix it promptly. We love that our unit is so close to the marina (about a minute walk) and Dolphin Tiki bar/restaurant. The food,wait staff, and atmosphere at the Tiki bar are great . We also discovered the Tiki bar's wonderful Sunday morning breakfast on the deck with a beautiful view of the marina. We walked to the Esplanade often. A favorite restaurant there is Mango's which has a great view and exceptional food at a good price. It is a pretty easy walk to Marco Town Center, too, where there are more restaurants and a Publix. If you like to walk, you could get by without a car. I have always felt safe at Angler's Cove even walking alone at night along the dock. The pools are salt water and grounds are well-maintained and tropical looking. It was a great time and we are already trying to book our time next year."

  • Perfect accommodations and location

    "Totally enjoyed every part of out trip. Condo was perfect for our family as we made most of our meals there. We did go out a few times but with younger kids, eating in was our best bet. Went to the beach and pool most days and the other guests/neighbors were very friendly. Definitely going to return and stay here again as it's close to everything you can think of."

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.
