Recent Florida South West reviews

  • Awesome House Awesome Location

    "Our family of six stayed here and absolutely loved this house. Clean, had everything you needed, comfortable, lovely pool with patio. We utilized every inch of this house and felt like we were at home. Convenient location to restaurants, trolley, beach, shopping, and grocery store. A bathroom for every bedroom. A large display of books to read. Convenient laundry room. A two car garage (very convenient). A nice one block walk to a very lovely beach. Will stay here again. We all had a great time! Mike Norman Realty is a dream to rent from. They make it very easy. Will use them again of course."

  • Wonderful Family Vacation!

    "This was not our first time staying on Siesta Key or in using VRBO. That said, from the initial email until we left, the owner was prompt, informative, and very helpful. As for the unit itself, we had all the modern amenities you could expect on a vacation, even a wine refrigerator! The unit was tastefully decorated in a modern Key West design and there was more than enough space for our family of 8. As for the grounds, beach, and complex amenities; I felt the complex was very much centrally located on the island and never too far from varying activities, restaurants, and shops. The complex has 2 heated pools, a wonderfully modern gym(we did not use it), fishing pier where we sat and had coffee in the morning, while looking out into the inter coastal waterway, and more than ample lounge chairs on the beach. For those who have never been to Siesta Beach…AKA…Crescent Beach, this is one of the finest beaches in all the World and we visit it every year. If on the fence, visit this beach! The only downfall was that we had 2 rainy days and we had to go back home. All in all, we had a great stay and look forward to coming back in the future!"

  • Time out in paradise

    "Part of me wants to keep this slice of paradise a secret! Have been here a couple times and can't wait to get back. This place is prefect for a romantic getaway or just a little quite time for reading, reflection and relaxation. Literally, outside your front door is the beach and the Gulf. A gorgeous location. Love my coffee or happy hour on the beach doing absolutely nothing, but being content. Friendly walkers, runners and families pass by, smile and say "Hello" and that's all part of the peace and quiet. Great restaurants, music, and activities are a stroll away if you want that, too. Wave when walk by, I'll be in my beach chair with a big grin."

  • 2 Families Loved this home

    "We stayed here 3/29- 4/5/14 very comfortable, beautiful, well kept up home. Perfect for 2 families with having the 2 master suites. Pool was wonderful and we used the hot tub heated extra cost for 5 days, since evenings were a bit cooler. View from the back screened pool area showed a natural Florida with Galinules, Great Egrets, 6-7 foot alligator, tricolored heron, night heron, anhingas, and cormorants. The Cape Haze Pioneer bike/walking trail was a short bike ride away with an Bald Eagles nest and 2 young immature eagles learning to fly. We brought our own bikes but Alan had a couple of nice bikes in the garage. The family room/kitchen was int he center of the home with the large patio doors which slid completely open to the screened pool area. Everyone had fun."

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.
