  • Amazing Captiva

    "We had an amazing vacation on Captiva. The house was exactly as described, very spacious and clean. We didn't actually have any contact at all with the property managers as we didn't really need anything and managed to work things out ourselves, but I assume they were around somewhere if we'd had a problem. We hardly used the pool as the beach is so beautiful and a short stroll away. The deck chairs/umbrellas and beach cart were extremely useful. We had a great time playing table tennis. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and the deli is great. Sunset at the Mucky Duck is a great event and we took some amazing sunset photos. The Sanibel Thriller is definitely worth doing, we had so many dolphin leaping around it was incredible. We rented bikes for the whole two weeks and really enjoyed being able to cycle around. We even cycled down to Ding Darling and back and one keen person cycled to the Sanibel Causeway and back, its a great place for cycling (despite the dire warnings from the tourist office about cycling on Captiva being dangerous.......for people who cycle to work daily in London, trust me, its safe on Captiva!). Don't miss seeing the manatees at the harbour. My only recommendations would be for some grown up games in the cupboard, there was mostly stuff for children and we were a party of 12 adults, we could have done with Scrabble or something, and also a few more instructions with regard to music system and swimming pool, there wasn't any additional info/instructions in the house. We will definitely come back to Captiva one day and you can't get a better location than Bella Bellini."

  • A JEWEL IN NAPLES!!!!!! GLOSSOP. DERBYSHIRE. UK.

    "Your home is truly beautiful. The house is in a perfect location so close to the beach, beautiful shops and restaurants. Your home is immaculate and you have thought of everything. Pat was very helpful on our arrival. The whole booking process went very smoothly and George was very helpful and replied promptly to any questions we had. Our favourite restaurants were Trulucks, Campiello and the breakfast place on fifth avenue, however, there are many more lovely places to eat. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us, we had an amazing time and would certainly recommend your home to others. We hope to return again soon. Thank you. Wyatt/Hill/Hagan family."

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.
