What a Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

This place is one of the best values on Ft Myers Beach. It is very well kept and there is more than enough space. The separate unit in the lower level was great for the teenagers. I would highly recommend Britta and would absolutely stay here again.

Best Holidays Ever !!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen super tollen Urlaub dort verbracht. Es hat uns in den (fast) 4 Wochen an Nichts gefehlt. Das Haus ist komplett - aber so was von komplett - eingerichtet und ausgestattet. Vom Handtuch bis zum Wäschetrockner, vom Korkenzieher bis zur Mikrowelle - alles da! Am nahen, riesigen, weißen (ohne sich die Füße zu verbrennen) und feinsandigen Strand konnten wir schöne Stunden verbringen - herrlicher Sonnenuntergang. Für Tagesausflüge nach Captiva, Sunnybell und Lover´s Key sowie nach Miami und in die Everglades hervorragend gelegen. Wir waren auch ein paar Tage in Orlando und Cape Caneveral.

Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen und können dieses Haus nur wärmstens empfehlen !!!

Traumurlaub in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Tolle Ferien in einem Ferienhaus mit allem, was das Herz begehrt. Das BigBlue liegt wunderbar ruhig und ist ein perfekter Ausgangspunkt für die vielen schönen Ziele in Florida. Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr komfortabel und sehr gemütlich eingerichtet. Von der Klimaanlage bis zur Waschmaschine ist alles verfügbar. In 5 Gehminuten ist man am wunderschönen Fort Myers Beach. Ein paar Autominuten entfernt befindet sich ein grosser Publix Supermarkt. Hier findet man alles, was man braucht. Zu unserer Reisezeit empfiehlt sich ein guter Mückenschutz (am besten im Supermarkt vor Ort kaufen). Das Haus verfügt rundherum über Mückennetze an den Fenstern, so daß Innen eigentlich keine Gefahr besteht. Sehr von Vorteil ist auch die deutschsprachige Hausverwaltung vor Ort. Man wird ausgesprochen freundlich empfangen und in die Gegebenheiten eingewiesen. Unser Fazit: Jederzeit wieder!
