Recent Florida South West reviews

  • Beautiful location, well-equipped and comfortable!

    "Spent a week here and had a great time. Location is wonderful, view from the screened-in balcony is beautiful, can't get any closer to the beach. Beach was very quiet even during this busy season, we practically had the area in front of the complex to ourselves many times. We rented bikes (Finnimore's delivered all 4 for $8) and it was an easy ride to Bailey's grocery store and several restaurants. We also rode to Tarpon Bay for an afternoon of kayaking. It was just shy of a 6 mile ride on paved trails to the lighthouse. Great dolphin-watching at the beach there! The unit is comfortably furnished and the use of the unit's beach chairs, umbrella, and beach towels made it easy for us to enjoy the beach right away. If we had had bad weather--which we did not--there were board games, puzzles, and cards to keep us occupied. Wi-Fi was in good working order. Kitchen well-stocked with utensils and cookware, blender, etc. Hair dryer also appreciated, was not sure from the Royal Shell info that one would be available, but it was. There is an elevator if needed, but mostly we used the 2 flights of stairs near the unit which led straight to pool and beach. We also appreciated having covered parking in the hot FL sun. Owners were very friendly and helpful in answering questions before our stay. We would go back in a heartbeat!"

  • Captiva paradise!!!!

    "We just returned from a week and wished it was longer. Everything we needed in a vacation home was available from plenty of beach towels to kitchen untensils. Home was clean and ready when we arrived. Perfect central location for all that Captiva offers. We are already looking forward to next year!"

  • Another Great Week

    "This was my family's second time staying at this condo. Another unforgettable week of fun and relaxation. The condo upgrades were spot on. This is just a beautiful place to stay at Siesta Key. Days on the beach, sunset dinners on the patio, and short walks into the beach village. If you have time go to The Broken Egg for a great breakfast on Sunday morning and go over to the little farmers market. We have already booked for 2015."

  • Relaxing at Round House

    "The Round House was cozy yet spacious at the same time. We were two couples and had plenty of room to spread out. Irene was helpful and responsive from my first inquiry through our stay. The Round House was a nice home base for exploring a unique part of Florida. Even though there are restaurants nearby, the kitchen at the home was well-stocked so we made dinners there with fresh local seafood. We definitely enjoyed out stay."

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.
