Property was immaculate! Can't wait to go back!

From the time my family and I walked through the door we felt comfortable. The decor was perfect, the interior looked like it was just updated by a professional. The lanai is huge and very well kept, all the screening and framework looked brand new. Just outside the lanai is a channel that leads to the Atlantic side of Fort Myers Beach where the fish were constantly jumping, I think I could have caught some with just a net.

Every morning we would walk less than 2 minutes to the beach and spend a few hours enjoying the water, sand and all the scenery. We would then head back and jump right in to the pristine in-ground pool for a refreshing swim. We definitely will be returning as soon as possible, if you like the beach and want your own piece of heaven to relax in, this house is a must.

Landscapers and pool cleaners showed up every few days so the property was kept up our entire stay.

Tough experience

  • 2 of 5

The house had a sewage problem. The shower in the efficiency backed up and raw sewage backed up into the shower. Norma was responsive and got Roto Rooter out. However it was July 4 at 730 so a few of our guests missed the fireworks on the beach. The shower backed up again the next day and it smelled really bad.

The other issue I had was the pull out bed in the second room. The mattress actually had springs sticking out and we had to put two comforters on it so we could sleep. We had no other choice as the other room was closed due to sewage.

The rest of the house was fine and the pool was well kept. The location was also good as it was right across the street from the beach.

Owner's Response: The sewage issue was addressed immediately (on the Holiday evening). The problem was more extensive and required an additional service call. We could not foresee this was going to be a problem and reacted immediately. You were given a 20 percent discount for your inconvenience. As far as the pull out sofa in the den, it is less than a year old....springs sticking out??? I understand your frustration with the plumbing, but this criticism is out of line.

We have been here two years in a row. Our family loves the location and the pool! We also loved all the updates they did to the kitchen. I highly recommend staying here!

The property was very clean and well maintained. The pool area was fantastic and our absolute favorite place to hang out. The property manager handled a small repair scheduling miscommunication very quickly so we could enjoy the rest of our stay without disruption and unwanted company! Thank you to all involved in keeping the properties well maintained and managed! We will be booking again~

We all enjoyed your property so much. The pool was nice and warm. A short walk to the beach that had soft white sand that felt great between your toes. Everything was conveniently located from the house. We only brought one bike and wish we had more, but there are plenty of places to rent bikes and more. The only thing I recommend is that the pull out couch in the den be replaced with a bed. I will definitely recommend to all my family and friends this house.

Location, location in Fort Myers Beach!!! Estero Island is a seven mile island that is not attached to Fort Myers. Beautiful white sand beaches span the Gulf of Mexico shoreline. The home is just yards from one of the widest points of beach on fort Myers Beach. There are wonderful restaurants within a short distance to please all culinary appetites. Just northwest of Estero island are Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Boating, swimming, rest and relaxation are just outside your door...and don't forget the beautiful sunsets in this great location!
