  • STATE OF THE ART CONDO!!!

    "The condo was BEAUTIFUL....the view every night was sooooo worth it. The pool and hot tub had a BBQ grill we got to grill right by the pool....seeing the dolphins in the water every night from the patio was awesome. To make things even better I can't begin to tell you how easy it was to communicate with this owner.....she emails you, texts you, always on top of things and she truly made this a great trip....we do have plans to go back.....I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE (AND NO I'M NOT A RELATIVE....)"

  • Great Vacation Spot

    "We just returned from this rental in Sanibel. This was the second year that we stayed in this beautiful 3 bedroom condo even though there were just two of us. There was plenty of room to spread out and as always, the owner has seen to every detail in the condo! It has all of the luxuries of home but with the beach outside your door! The pictures shown are exactly the way the condo looks! The Lanai is a terrific place to spend time, morning and night! As always, the pool and grounds were pristine and the storage room has everything that you'll need for for beach enjoyment. The beach is a great spot to sun bathe, catch the sunrise or sunset and collect shells to your heart's content. The condo is conveniently located to all restaurants, shops and attractions. On this visit, we visited a local day spa for massages, took a morning Dolphin Cruise and saw lots of Dolphins and ate at several of the restaurants within very close proximity to the condo. Shopping at local markets is super convenient to the condo for cooking in, so many options. A short drive to Captiva is charming and no need to leave the islands! This is a great place to get away for R&R and the owner is always available to advise and assist with with any concerns. Make plans to visit right away...you won't regret it!"

  • Fantastic beach house with amazing sunsets

    "Absolutely loved the beach house. It was sparkling clean and beautifully furnished. The views out on to the sea were just what we needed and the sunsets were amazing from the deck. We couldn't get any closer to the beach, the house is right on the sand and we had our own private piece of sand in front of the house that the chap from the sunbed hire kindly put two sunbeds and a sunshade there for us. Parking was great too, right at the side of the house. We could walk up the beach or the road and find restaurants and bars in both directions. All in all, we had a beautifully relaxing holiday. Thank you for having us."

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.
