Everything was great! Location= great, House= great, Dave and Kim = great

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time with three family's at the property. Each family has two kids and the place was just the right size. The combination of the location and the private pool was great for young kids as you have the option to be at the beach for a few hours and at the pool the rest of the day or whatever the little ones prefer. Dave and Kim were very accommodating and pleasant through the whole process. We are already planning a trip back next year!

Lovely home. So close to everything on Fort Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with our big family group of 12 (4 adults, eight kids). The House was perfect. Very clean. The kids loved the lower level. The pool was great. The projection system was awesome. So close to the beach. We loved it. Thank you, Dave and Kim.

Perfect for our trip!

Kim and Dave's home was the perfect place to escape the cold with a group of friends. It had everything we needed to enjoy our days and was walking distance to plenty of restaurants and bars. The pool was perfect and the beach access was an added bonus!

Great place, great owners! Enjoyed our stay. Thank you! Only downside is I tried to book the house and VRBO site said I had to wait for owner to okay stay or availability? Then received response it wasn't available, already booked. So I booked a different house. Day before we left to go to other house for moms funeral service I noticed an email saying welcome to this house? So I ended up paying for "two" houses and couldn't get out of it. I assume this was the fault of the VRBO service/site, not the owners. The owners were very friendly.

Owner's Response: Hello Rich and Patricia, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We would love to have you back again! The issue with the VRBO booking is a mystery to us and is disturbing as we discussed when we talked. Our records showed that you had a confirmed booking and in fact had pre-paid for it. We would be glad to help with any follow up that you may want to do with VRBO to help. Thanks again for staying with us!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a perfect location. The outside area is amazing. The house is just as listed in the description. The only issue we had with all adults was the water pressure if both showers were on at the same time. We all had a great time and would definitely return
