    "This was our third year here. We will be back next year too. Pool warmed up for us - 70 or so Jan 31, by the second week was near 80. Need to cover the pool at night to cut heat loss over night. In March temp was in 80 s every day but two - turned off solar heat for pool - it was over 80. Carol is great - the vacuum was on its last legs - told her and we got a delivery from Target with a new vacuum the next week. We enjoy Fish House and Charley's Boat House - both less than a 1/2 mile away. Beach Theatre is close too."

  • Fabulous Trip

    "Just returned from a fabulous trip to these cottages. We had booked both cottages and they were gorgeous Florida beach cottages, exactly as described. This was for a family get together/holiday and three generations of our family loved them. The beach access right outside the back door was a huge hit and you couldn't find a more perfect spot to relax, although it was close enough to everything that you could have as relaxed or active a break as you wished to. There was off street parking right outside the front of the properties and the location was perfect, a trolley stop 2 minutes walk away which brought you right up to Time Square in just minutes and a very short drive to Publix. Cecilia in Sunworks made the whole process so easy for us booking from overseas and we really couldn't have asked for anyone more helpful. She was a pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much trouble for her. I would highly recommend a stay in the cottages for anyone considering a trip to Fort Myers Beach."

  • Wonderful week; beautiful view and perfect interior

    "This location is our favorite spot in Ft. Myers Beach and we keep coming back to this area. This particular unit has everything to make your stay perfect: Upscale freshly remodeled interior; perfect small amenities like welcome gifts and helpful hints about the area. An absolute gorgeous 10th floor view of the beach and Gulf..And when you are not on the beach, the local restaurants, grocery, banks, and pharmacy are all within 5-10 minutes of the condo complex."

  • Excellent Home, Excellent Owner

    "Our families really enjoyed this home. It was immaculate and was close to the beach and to many restaurants and shopping outlets. Communication was excellent at all times and Mark was fantastic to work with. This is our second year staying in Bradenton for baseball at Pirate City and Mark's home made this year a lot more convenient and fun. We saw Dolphins every day as well out our back window. For our group of two families, the two master bedrooms really made a difference. We will definitely rent from Mark again when we return to Bradenton. There is no better situation!"

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.
