  • Great vacation

    "My wife, parents and myself stayed here for a great week away from the cold in NY. A Great view of the gulf and the pool from the front room and the same great view of the gulf from the bedroom."

  • Christmas Week in a beautiful house

    "Exceptional in all regards. Great kitchen - we even found a potato masher for making mashed potatoes for our Christmas dinner. Comfortable beds and great pillows. Lots of beach towels. Views were exceptional - especially sunsets. Porches are wonderful - the teens found the back porch perfect for watching videos while sunning - away from the wind and close to the kitchen (drinks and snacks). Grandmother sat on the front porch when the beach was too hot (yes! hot in December!) Everyone had a favorite spot. Beach is just a few steps away. Great room on top floor was fun for all. Extra living room on bedroom floor is great for kids, but ours stayed in their room - I don't know why. Lots of movies, books, games, puzzles available (we did a puzzle but didn't use anything else). We were only 6, but there is a leaf for the dining room table when there are more. Everything is so well thought out. For example: the bedrooms each have a window over the door. We left a small lamp in the living room on all night and it was just enough light in the rooms for those who might need to get up during the night. Lynda and Barry are wonderful to work with and very helpful, flexible, easy going."

  • Beautiful Location

    "This second floor condo has a beautiful east-facing view of a small lake and a golf course. It is exceptionally clean with easy access to the beaches, downtown and a major shopping area. The only minor drawbacks: You can hear the faint hum of traffic on I-75 pretty much 24/7. It's most noticeable in the morning. Also, they told us they have had to call Comcast out repeatedly to little avail. Consequently TV reception is unreliable. Hopefully by next time that issue will have been resolved and more information will have been provided to guests regarding WIFI access, local attractions, dining out, proper management of recyclables, etc."

  • Excellent experience! Spacious! Beautifully furnished condo!

    "This was the first time we booked lodging at anything other than a hotel for a vacation and were completely satisifed with our experience. The pictures on the website do not do this condo justice! Spotless, beautifully decorated, fully furnished and very spacious! We traveled over Spring Break to Fort Myers Beach with our two teenage daughters and were pleasantly surprised by the accomodations. We had other family who stayed in a hotel down the road right on the beach, but they had very little space in their cramped hotel room. We had everyone over for dinner (plenty of plates, silverware, dishes, pots and pans) twice and were able to spread out with enough room for everyone. Very large outdoor pool, covered parking, friendly people. Our kids had their own bedroom and bathroom. Walk-in closets in the spacious master bedroom and 2nd bedroom. Beautiful scenic views through patio doors that stretch across the width of the entire condo. Plenty of towels, sheets, pillows, etc. and a washer and dryer right on the lanai, which was really convenient. A car is necessary to travel around to the beaches, but the property is very easily accessed from Estero Blvd. We went parasailing, rented wave runners, drove to Sanibel Island and went shelling, visited 4 different beaches, and had plenty of good food and drink! There is also a trolley/bus line that runs right down Estero Blvd, with plenty of bus stops, so the 5 teenagers that were part of our group took the trolley into the Town Square for shopping, to watch the sunset and enjoy Italian Ice several times without the adults, which they loved! This condo is far enough south on Estero so that the traffic was not overwhelming, but close enough to drive into town or take the trolley anytime. Our security deposit was returned within 3 days of our return home and the owners were friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. We would definitely return to the same rental property and would not trade this experience for any other. Thank you for a truly WONDERFUL vacation!!"

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.
