Memorable vacation in a fabulous home and location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 just spent a long weekend at Sam Guirguis's Riverfront Mansion in Ft. Myers, Florida. The house is spectacular with stunning views and a dock for fishing. The house was extremely comfortable for everyone and included two Master Bedroom Suites.

At arrival, our host spent an hour with us explaining all of the features of the house to insure our comfort. He was available to talk to us at any time, and responded promptly to our calls.

There was great fishing from the dock. We caught a variety of fish including a beautiful trout which we grilled and had for dinner. We all agreed that this was one of our best vacations ever!

Before our visit there I read a very negative review of the house by a former guest. I cannot agree with those comments. The pool operated beautifully, and the temperature was perfect. The Jacuzzi was warm and enjoyable. The dishwasher worked well. All the systems of the home functioned well including the background music.

The worst statement was that the owner was hard to deal with and rude. Nothing could be further from the truth! Sam was an extremely gracious host, and we are looking forward to our next visit there!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kindness. You and your family are wonderful people and you are welcome back anytime. We work very hard to make sure the house is in tip top shape for every guests' enjoyment but on occasion we meet tenants (like the ones who left the negative review) that you just can't please. It's times like that when my wife and I just want to give up and get out of the business, than along comes a wonderful family like yours and our faith in humanity is restored! Thank you again, we feel fortunate to have met you all.

Amazing stay in Fort Myers

  • 5 of 5

I had arranged my wife's surprise birthday at this property. We arrived about 2 hours earlier than the check-in time, but the owner, Sam, did his best to get stuff done sooner so we could check in before the scheduled time. The pool area and the river view was breathtaking. The owner gave us a tour and familiarized us with all the things we needed to know about the property. It was definitely the best villa I had ever rented. It exceeded my expectations in so many different ways, especially the backyard area where I could stay for days and not get bored of the scenery. I'll definitely consider this property for future weekend getaways. In fact I'm already in the process of arranging my second stay there.

Breathtaking Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The view, location and spaciousness of this home took our breath away!

It was a wonderful place to unwind and was within walking distance of downtown as well as the Edison-Ford Estate. The outdoor hot tub was enjoyed by all of our extended family! If your group is larger than

four persons, please be sure to be in communication with the owner. We

had some confusion about total price for our extended family. When we discussed this with owner, we were able to agree. The bedrooms are not all stand alone - one is in the entryway into the downstairs suite. Two other bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bath; an additional half bath was available for these bedrooms, however no shower was in that 1/2 bath. We found the owner to be very helpful in providing items we needed and the home to be clean and comfortable. The owner gave clear instructions on how to care for the high end equipment and he seemed most pleased when his wishes were respected. We hope others will enjoy this Florida retreat.

Great property, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at this property, there were 4 adults and 5 children and we had plenty of space. The back patio and pool area is amazing, we spent most evenings just hanging out by the hot tub and pool listening to music and watching the kids splash in the pool. The dock was fun, we caught more fish on the dock than the 3 hour fishing trip we took. It was a bit of a drive to the beaches, but we left early every morning to beat the rush and were back by 3 or so every day. Sam, the owner, was very responsive to every question that we had and was very accessible. I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

Great house to sleep many people, more bathrooms with showers then you actually need! Owners are very easy to work with. Great kitchen to cook in and close to Sanibel Island or Fort Myers beaches.
