Guestbook comments from the owner

We are most likely the first "Icelanders" to stay here and like so many before us we had a wonderful stay at Casa Bones del Mar. The house itself, location, pool and the people here made our visit a special memory for us. We hope to visit you again in the near future. Best wishes from Iceland

Great place to enjoy the overall Fort Meyers Beach area

  • 5 of 5

The home is well situated and provided excellent accommodations for a large family gathering. The access to the beach was easy and quick to get to. We appreciated having a pool as well plus a variety of board games to enjoy in the evening. The information and directions provided by the hosts made everything easy.

Nice main level. The thing was not nice you had to go to through the garage to get to the 4th bedroo

  • 3 of 5

The pool was very nice. I think it needs to be updated. The biggest thing we had a problem with was there was a horrible smell in the garage smelled like dead fish. We went to the store and bought glade air fresheners to plug in the wall.

Great Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house had all the essentials needed and was updated. It is a very short walk to the beach access and there is also parking at the beach access for those who might need a lift. We would recommend this property to others looking for a great place to stay in Ft. Myers Beach area!!!

This was a great house.The house is in a great location, just steps to the beach and a short walk to the Times Square entertainment area where there are lots of outdoor restaurants and bars. The house had just been remodeled and has a beautiful kitchen with granite countertops and all new appliances. There was plenty of room for everybody to relax and have a great vacation. There are views to the beach from the balconies. There's new furniture in the bedrooms and living room. The house was very clean. The kitchen had every gadget you could think of to make your best gourmet meals. There was a Weber grill to barbecue our steaks. There is a full size enclosed pool with lots of sunshine and pool toys. There are lots of beach activities nearby including jet skiing and deep-sea fishing. We had a great day on the boat and caught lots of groupers and had a fish fry when we got back. We met the owner who was very friendly and available to answer all our questions. I would highly recommend this house and we look forward to coming back again soon.
