Newly renovated, and new to the market. Mid Century Beach Cottage on a huge double corner lot, nearly 1/2 acre. Mature Mango and Cherry trees on a wonderful yard with Oak and Pine shade trees. Walk or bike to restaurants, stores, and the beach (approx. 1 mile). Updated in a contemporary open style including a new Trane A/C, new cabinets, granite counters, tile shower. This original Cedar cottage was one of the first in the area, and retains its historical character with modern amenities. A taste of Old Florida.

Cute, clean, cozy, sunny and inviting
The place really does look like the pictures; it was an excellent value as well. I was impressed by how clean and sunlit the place felt. The yard is gorgeous with many beautiful trees, and there are many cute sitting areas outside, a festive and cozy porch, deck with grill, etc. The owner was nice and helpful, and the kitchen was well-equipped with a spacious fridge/freezer, Keurig coffee maker with supplies, electric skillet, wine fridge (we don't drink but, useful and spacious) etc. The one thing I would give a heads up about is that the master bed is quite firm. I usually actually prefer a firm mattress, but my bf and I both have back issues and this was really quite firm... we didn't sleep that well. I thought about getting a cheap mattress topper just to get through the week; seems like it would solve the issue pretty easily. It was a bit of a bummer (sleep is a big deal!) but I am still giving 5 stars because the place is so nice and this is a small issue that can easily be corrected if necessary, and I'm also not sure if we're the best representatives of mattress comfort reporting because we both have back pain issues.
Also, if you want to watch TV from any apps besides Netflix, bring your own HDMI cable and streaming device because the TV is cable; I don't think it is bluetooth enabled, though please correct me if I'm wrong. There is a TV in the kid's (2 twin beds) room as well which was nice, my teenage daughter really enjoyed staying in there. We had a great time here.
Oh, one other issue: we couldn't get the master bedroom door to lock, but the children's bedroom did (from the inside). This was a bit frustrating, we lacked privacy because of that. Maybe the lock just needs to be fixed? Everything else functioned well.
Excellent, comfortable stay
Well appointed and comfortable with thoughtful touches such as bikes and beach essentials. All very good quality. Convenient for the beautiful beach (few minutes drive) and a few good restaurants were only 5 minute walk. Peaceful corner plot with large garden.
Quiet, peacefull and Rejuvenated
Small vintage home updated with modern touches. Very Relaxing inside and out. Several beaches to choose from not far away. Kayak and paddle board rentals available on site.
Wonderful. Grill was great, biking around the neighborhood was super. Bed was comfortable, kitchen was great. House was full of light, easy access to everything via Tamiyama trail road. The outdoor porch was delightful and there were fresh mangos on hand - neighbors left them by the road in a wheelbarrow! Door code was great, no need to carry around keys. Spots to park 2 cars though I only needed one for myself. Great master closet with the washer and dryer in it - such a smart layout. Wish I had that in my house! I will be back if work brings me down there again. Mike was super responsive. Can’t say enough good things!
We have stayed in several Home Away properties and this was by far the best. The owner has gone out of his way to make sure that guests have every detailed need and want supplied. The house is on a private and quiet corner lot with all amenities needed for an excellent and very comfortable stay. The bikes were first class and the one mile ride to the beach was such a bonus. The backyard was beautiful with a very large mango tree:) If God allows, we will definitely be back in the future. Also, extremely clean and with more than enough kitchen supplies and linens to completely enjoy our stay. Decor of house was beautiful and practical:) Great Job! Thank you sir for our wonderful stay:)
Beautiful Peaceful Property!
This property is just as advertised, clean, idyllic, private, and peaceful. It is centrally located, very close to Fort Meyers and Naples and all the beautiful beaches. I would definitely stay again. All you need is your bags and go, the house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, a home away from home.
