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!

Awesome condo at Bella Lago

  • 5 of 5

First time vacationing in this part of Florida (July 8-15, 2017). Was impressed with property upon arrival and even more so upon entering the unit. The décor was very fitting for a beach property and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked and even had a few extra items other rentals did not have in past. We chose this rental due to the size so that everyone would have their own space. That worked out so well especially with teenagers. All the necessities for the beach and pool were available for use including beach towels, umbrella and chairs. There were even a few rafts and pool noodles. A small cooler would have come in handy for any day trips or just going to beach. Both the swimming pool and hot tub were nice and the area well maintained. I even got to take advantage of the gym with my son a few times during our stay. Loved the screened in balcony with the view of the fountain in the lake. Enjoyed seeing the wildlife flying around the water. This condo was on the quieter end of beach which would be great for anyone not wanting to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of tourist. The beach was just across the street which was easy enough to get to. Unfortunately, we did not enjoy the beach due to dead fish everywhere and the smell. Several places in walking distance and also trolley stop close by. We did not use trolley due to fear of getting caught out in the daily rain (some strong downpours) during our stay. Would recommend Dan's condo for anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing time away from it all.

The condo had everything needed for a wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

Dan is very accommodating. He even gave us the key to his tennis courts up the road from the condo community. It's important to note that the third room truly is a den, barely big enough for the sofa bed. The master bedroom on the other hand is huge! The decor is beautiful and elegant. I would stay here again.

Very nice stay at Bella Lago, Ft Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay (2 weeks) at beautiful Bella Lago. The communication with Dan was excellent and the apartment was exactly as in the description. The poolarea was large and not very crowded, we really loved it. The apartment had a nice kitchen and bathrooms, we also liked the balcony where we had some nice sunrises and evenings. The storage area contained useful things as floating toys and fishing rods. It was an easy access to the beach where we spent long time collecting shells. There are only a short drive to Lovers key where we spent some days on the beach, fishing, canoeing and looking for manatees. We can highly recommend the rental of Bella Lago! /The Swedish family
