Guestbook comments from the owner

We were very happy with our stay in Fort Myers Beach. We have two young children that enjoyed the pool, beach and lots of room to play. We also appreciated the extras that were included playpen, highchair, pool toys etc. Daniel was a great host and often check in and ensured we had everything we needed prior and during our stay. Great vacation!

Beware Of Owner

  • 1 of 5

Not very impressed with owner. He will go in without notifying you first. Also will bill for anything he possibly can or will make up charges.

I have included the following information to support this. As I seen before where he tried to say he didn't do the above.

"Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 + 1 Toddler)"

We did have 1 extra child that stayed for 2 nights. Most of our trip we booked 2 separate condos, only for the last 2 nights did our group get together. But instead of charging for the one extra person for 2 nights. He charged for 2 extra people for the entire duration. Again he won't mention this.

"Marks on tables from not using coasters, scratch on lamp in 3rd BR, additional wash/cleaning, red and green sticky candy all through the kitchen on floor and other areas"

Coasters were breakable, and we put them out of reach of a 2yr old. There were no water marks. Have no clue what a scratch to a lamp is but I'm sure he likes to charge this to others as well. Red/Green sticky candy. We didn't have any candy. Also considering that we ate out every meal, we really didn't use the kitchen other than for some snacks.

Be careful when you rent from this guy. He does go into the property, and will make any excuse for it.

Owner's Response: My Response: The guest is angered by a deduction in the damage deposit due to the number of guests not being reported correctly, and the condition of the condo after departure. All condo associations on FMB have rules of course, just as this one does. Duncan failed to comply by those rules and reported false information. We never enter a unit without notice, the guest was notified by email and by text that tools had accidentally been left and needed to be retrieved, the guest did not respond and this was indicative of all communications with Duncan prior to his check in. In fact I had to withhold the check in information until he complied with providing the condo associations renter requirement information at the very last minute. In the email dialog with Duncan after the deposit refund (most of the refund was returned!) I asked him to call me and discuss the situation as I knew he was upset, but he elected not to do so and instead wrote the review. Please consider reading all the 4 and 5 star reviews posted on me and this condo! Frankly in after thought the amount withheld from Duncan's deposit is hardly worth it considering. Unfortunately not all guests follow rules and/or take good care.

Very good location and a nice condo.

  • 4 of 5

After a little problem at the beginning of our stay the problem itself was solved within 20 hours but it took two days to finish the unpleasant conversation via mail with Dan. It ended with an apology from Dan what we honestly appreciated and thereafter we started to enjoy the vacation very much. The condo was in a good shape and at a perfect location. It is really easy to cross the street to take the short walk to the bach. The kids loved the pool and the very nice and warm weather made the holidays perfect. The sofabed in the den should be used by a single person only as the mattress is relatively thin and a bit bent to the middle, so my little daughter and me always met in the middle. Nevertheless the condo is nice and spacious and it is no problem to use it with up to 5 to 6 persons.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Alexandra. In response to the "unpleasant conversation by mail" , this was related to the electronic lock. Alexandra notified me at 10 PM Friday after they checked in that she could not get the door to lock from the outside, however there's a dead bolt from the inside to secure the condo and as well the building entrance is always locked and secure. Further the condo electronic lock had worked properly just a few hours prior to Alexandra's arrival so I thought it was human error and would have my assistant check it in the morning and show them how to use. Unfortunately that night I was rushing to catch a plane because my brother was on his death bed in Pittsburgh, I had my assistant check the lock at 9AM the following morning for proper operation and it was faulty, I had the lock fixed (2) hours later by 11AM on Saturday the same day, the repair was accomplished in less than 24 hours after notice. I'm very much saddened if/when a guest is unhappy for whatever reason, but I admit that I cannot please every guest to their specific expectations, there were other very minor items such as a broken beach toy that this guest complained about, I don't believe there was any way to please her, but I tried even while in the middle of difficult personal issue. She never mentioned the sofa bed to me but had she I would have asked her if the 2" mattress cover was on the bed, which it was not as my cleaning crew told me so, this cover adds much comfort to the bed. There are many other reviews of me as I have five condo's here on FMB, mostly all five star whereas my guest often mention me by name and my efforts to make their stay pleasant and without aggravation, please read the 4/5 star reviews, thank you.

Quiet, great location, well-kept property

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend here with a group of girls and had a wonderful time! There were hardly any other people around so we mostly had the pool to ourselves. Great location right across from the beach and just a short drive down to the pier. The unit was very comfortable and well-stocked. We'll be back for sure!

Comfortable property and nice location

  • 4 of 5

The description and photographs of the property are accurate and the owner, Dan, responds promptly to enquiries. When we visited in September it was extremely quiet, which was just what we hoped for and on the occasions we used the pool we were either alone or sharing with only a handful of people. The beach is a short walk across the main road and although not 'pristine' at this part it is full of interest, beautiful shells and perfectly fine for relaxing on the sand. Within a short distance are excellent beach areas too. A shopping area is very close by and has a number of restaurants and bars. Truly Scrumptious Cafe ice creams and breakfasts were very good.

The trolley service is good and inexpensive and although we only went to Times Square and back, we noted that it is possible to take the trolley over the bridge as far as the Walmart which could be useful. Nearby Bonita Springs has some nice restaurants and shops and is a short trolley/car ride away. We would certainly consider staying at this property again as it represented good value, an excellent location away from the slightly more 'lively' end of Fort Myers Beach, but close enough when you want to enjoy the bars and bustle of Times Square.

There is no place like home except this condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had it all. We can not think of one thing that could be improved. The extras such as the condiments in the refrigerator, and bounce in the laundry room for just examples. The cleaning crew does a great job. the dishes, pots and pans are in fantastic shape. Dan has many rules and it is worth it to keep this condo top notch. Will be returning if it is available and timing works out. We traveled in August and had the entire pool to ourselves a few days. And did I say clean! This place looks nicer in person than the pictures.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo! The condo was spacious and immaculate. Everything we could possible have needed was provided (beach chairs, umbrella, salt/pepper, condiments, beach towels, etc). They even provided spaghetti sauce and spaghetti. The location is excellent. The beach is a very short walk. The condo is within a short walk to CVS and several restaurants. We would definitely love to return! Thanks so much.
