Recent Florida South West reviews

  • Amazing vacation!

    "Rented this home for 10 nights and it was more than we expected. The home was spotless and the owner provided more than ample linens and household items. Our family (which includes 3 children under 7) found the home to be comfortable and accommodating for all of us. We docked our boat at the marina which is only a 5 minute walk from the townhouse. All of us had a great time exploring the Cape Haze area. The owner was very gracious and even called to make sure everything was going well. We will be staying here again! Highly recommend this townhouse!"

  • Very cute cottage.

    "The cottage was very clean and well appointed. Only 2 blocks from the beach. And a short walk to Pine ave for restaurants. Bed was very comfortable. And my dogs loved the fenced in side yard. Would stay here again. Ruth the owner was very nice and pleasant even after I broke something. She was very understanding. Would recommend for anyone with dogs.."

  • Fabulous Holiday

    "We had a great holiday at Mango Bungalow. The location is superb, in a quiet area yet extremely close to beaches such as Barefoot Beach which was a fantastic, unspoilt beach; restaurants and other attractions. We were able to visit Captiva, Sanibel, Naples, Marco Island & The Everglades very easily. We also visited Miami (2 1/2 hours away) and Key West (5 hour drive) where we stopped over for a night. Estero outlet shopping is also close by and a firm favourite with my wife and two teenage (17 & 14) daughters ! We also quiet days relaxing at the house, sitting outside by the pool. The bungalow provides all you need being spacious, very nicely decorated with great kitchen and bathrooms. Great place to chill out after the trips mentioned above. The location also suits runners like me where you can run round very quiet roads around the area, though the 95 degrees temperature meant it was a little warm! The booking arrangements with Amanda were very straightforward and she was a pleasure to deal with. Best endorsement was when we got in the car to leave for Miami airport, everyone felt very sad and we wished we weren't going home ! Until next time....."

  • Wonderful "Quick" Beach Getaway

    "My husband and I truly enjoyed our 'quick' getaway to Coquina Cove. The property was charming, clean, well-maintained, and had all the extras anyone could want. AND, it is Pet Friendly! The owner, Julie, was so very helpful in answering all our questions, and I feel like I have a new friend. She is a delight. We had a wonderful time, and will definitely be back for another Old Florida beach getaway."

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.
