  • Great Family Getaway Home

    "This House has everything you need. Plenty of rooms with comfortable and spatious bedrooms and is centrally located near the beach, shops and restaurants. Everything you need for enjoyable vacation is provided. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets and early morning walks and swims at the Private Beach. Looking forward to booking the house again next year. We rate the house and it's owner AAAAAAA+++++++..."

  • Just like a Tropical Paradise....

    "Thank-you for sharing your wonderful home. My husband and I met up with our daughter, son-in-law, and two little grandsons from Chicago for a memorable Christmas week! The pictures are exactly what the house looks like...beautiful. The location provided much solitude even though there is a very close neighbor. The tall shrubs planted between the homes allowed us great privacy in the pool area. The pool and spa were a highlight and used a lot. My husband spent a lot of time on the dock, fishing. He was able to catch (and release) quite a variety of fish including Oscar, Pinfish, Sheep'shead, Bluegill, and Alligator Gar. Of course there were also both saltwater and freshwater turtles who couldn't resist the bait and a young 4-5 ft. alligator. My daughter and I enjoyed our early morning times watching the "amazing sunrises". The inside of the home was not only lovely but well equipped. We enjoyed the kitchen and living room area which is adjacent to the lanai where everyone could be together comfortably. Yet the layout of the house also provided many spaces for being alone. After visiting several of the beaches we all voted on Boca Grande as our favorite.It was about a 20 min. drive. We had unbelievable weather with no rain and 80's almost every day which enhanced the experience tremendously. The "noseeum bugs" which were mentioned by the owner were vicious little guys and I ended up being their main target. Next time I definitely will use Deet spray! However even all our bites couldn't deter our experience. We're already dreaming about our next visit. Thanks again for allowing us to make wonderful Christmas memories."

  • Best Stay ever in a luxurious and tasteful house

    "The house is situated in a quiet area named Madison Park and has a beautiful sight towards a lake. You will find, that everything that is shown on the beautiful pictures is what you get there. We enjoyed the marvelous pool, the quality gas grill, the tasteful furniture, the well equipped kitchen and more. The house was a clean and wellmaintained place like new. We are planning to go there again next year and would recommend this place to all of our friends. Last but not least, we like to thank the owner, who really cares for his guest and who helped us in every way."

  • Great condo with wonderful beach view!

    "My friends and I were in Sanibel for a girls getaway. This was a great condo! Beautifully decorated and so warm and inviting. It was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped, and we enjoyed the use of the beach chairs and umbrellas. Both bedrooms were very comfortable and so pretty. Bathrooms were also nice. The view from the screened patio/balcony was absolutely awesome. We enjoyed sitting out there in the evenings watching the ocean. The beach and the pool were just a short walk from the condo. We liked having the shower/foot shower at the end of the walkway, right before you get back to the condo so you can get the sand off your feet or rinse off before going to the pool. The pool was nice, too. The condo is close to dining, shopping and the lighthouse. The beach was beautiful and we had great weather the whole week! It only rained one morning during our stay. Thank you for sharing your condo with us. We would definitely recommend it and would love to come back again! Great 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.
