Quite run down

  • 2 of 5

The location of the property is nice BUT overall the property is run down. Could use updates and thorough cleaning. There is construction going on next door all day. Tom, the caretaker was very nice and got the pool cleaned up.

Kids (all 5) said it was their best family vacation EVER!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home with a spectacular view! I don't even know where to begin. First, Connie, I can't thank you enough for opening up your beautiful home to our family. I know we had a rocky first day... Totally OUR FAULT, not at all you, yet you maintained your cool and stopped what you were doing with your own family to make sure our stay was top notch (and it far surpassed that!). The view, the accommodations (all we needed was to fill our fridge - everything else was provided), the friendly neighbors and Tom & Joel... Just great! We fished, we swam, we saw dolphins every day, horseshoe crab, Blue crab (caught a few too), fiddler crabs, the kids just had a blast. The upstairs loft was perfect for them! They were close but not too close (this WAS a vacation for us too! Ha!) The pool was incredible. The fact it has a little step all the way around, even in the deep end, where our kids could hang, was awesome! I've never seen that before (and I've lived my whole life in Florida and have seen a million different pools, even worked for a pool construction company!), the chairs and comfy cushions, the balcony on the house, the view overlooking the waterway.. Spectacular! We've already begun talking about coming back in October or November. Across the street, literally (no crossing over traffic to get to it), is the trolley pick up which costs a buck (we didn't use it but saw it all over town all week). We were within minutes of the beach (which I thought we'd spend more time but kids loved the pool and dock so much we only went one day - hooray for not having to pack a cooler, pop up tent, chairs, towels, etc!) and shopping and restaurants, everything is literally right there. It's so convenient! The best thing about it all, affordable! My mom came up (oh my gosh, that in itself..! We thank you SO much for making that possible!!) and took one look and said how lucky we were to find such an amazing place, ESPECIALLY at that price. She's one to vacation. She's rented houses on the water before. This was by far her favorite and was literally HALF the cost of every other place she's stayed! I can't gush enough. Thank you so much for making our vacation (that we get only every other year) a memorable one. We look forward to visiting again as soon as possible!

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased to find this lovely well furnished rental. The location was ideal for any number of experiences. We did some sightseeing, relaxing, and visiting in a quiet scenic place. The sunsets were perfect for the photographer and after just a short drive we were in Ft Myers Beach. Sanibel Island is also a short drive away. The owner is responsive and we were very well pleased. All who enter will be pleased as well!

Thanks for the great place to stay! The pics don't do the place justice . It was very spacious with a great view . We got to see dolphins every morning, a manatee came up and was drinking water from the boat which as cool. The neighbor was friendly as well as the ground keeper. We got lucky and met the lady that cleans do to us having car trouble . She live down the road and introduced herself. She was one of the nicest ladies I ever met.. I was nervous at first to rent due to only renting a motel before for a vacation. Connie was very polite and gave all details without me having to ask ,which made me feel very comfortable. I can't say enough about this place how wonderful our vacation was here. Thank you again for letting us use your place for vacation thanks from the grant family

very nice stay

  • 4 of 5

We had an perfect week and enjoyed our stay.

We had the upper property and had enough room for the 3 of us.

The property was spacious and clean.

The pool was nice and clean.

The poolman was very helpful and when we asked him about an umbrella, he brought his own from home!

I did enjoy fishing from the dock behind the house and when i broke my pole, the neighbor next door gave me my remaining days one of his own, so i could keep fishing.

My wife was missing an hairdryer and the bikes who we could freely use, could use some maintenance ( only 1 of the 3 was useable )

But all together we had an very pleasant stay in this property, Thanks Connie!

When we will visit this part of Florida again, we will contact you.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your business and are glad you enjoyed your stay at our bay home. It is unfortunate that I did not know a hard dryer was missing and there were issues with the bikes during your stay, so we could fix the issues. We have corrected both situations. Our neighbors are wonderful people and always willing to help out. It's fun to fish off the dock and see all the marine life. I'm glad you got the opportunity to do so. Please visit us again in the future.

Great find!

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week in the upper unit. The back bedroom with the bath across the hall was terrific for grandma. The loft gave our teenage girls room to spread out. The pictures and description provided are accurate. With the bridge traffic during Christmas week, being located on the north side of the bridge was ideal. My 80 year old mother was able to walk over the bridge easily twice a day. For people who don't want to walk, the shuttle is available across the street, although the schedule is variable when traffic is heavy. There are some great restaurants located down the street. The pool was key for the entire family. Beautiful sunsets. Well stocked, just bring beach towels and a hair dryer (if needed).
