Perfect beach getaway! What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in the cottage with our two dogs and can't wait to go back! Claudia was there to welcome us and just a text away if we had any questions or needed anything. The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast each day and the grill outside was a great option to have! The cottage was very clean and comfortable - even the bed was comfortable which is a huge plus and not always the case in rentals!!!

The location was perfect...across the street from the grocery store, bar/restaurant and a marina where we rented a boat each day. There were so many great places to boat including secluded beaches and restaurants - great way to spend a couple of days! The beach at the cottage was very nice too and on a quieter part of Ft Myers Beach. It was nice being able to use the beach area in front of the main house too! The cottage is set just behind the main house and has parking right at the door.

It's a quick 5 minute drive into town where the were tons of options for food and drink. And if you have dogs...this is a really great option since the beach and many restaurants were dog friendly! It was our first time visiting that area, but we travel quite a bit and were very impressed with the entire experience!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

It's a very secluded private property only a few steps from the beach. The owner Claudia was very nice and helpful. Very clean and the hottub was definitely a plus. We'll definitely visit again soon. Thanks!

We loved the cottage. So cute and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Us moms and our kids made a girls trip here. We absolutely loved it! The kids had a great time at the beach all day which is only steps away. Us moms were able to enjoy ourselves, kick back and have some mimosas :) Weve already talked about future trips back.... The owners were extremely friendly and amazingly accommodating. Can't wait to plan future trips.

Cute cottage with a convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Adorable studio style place with a great beach feel to it. Lots of natural light and all white interior. It sits one house back from the beach but it is literally about 30 steps to the beach (no need to cross any roads). We like to spend our beach vacations sitting on the beach most of the time and this cottage was conveniently located so that we could easily walk up to eat, use the bathroom, etc. The hot tub was a nice amenity that we used every evening. It was nice to sit under the palms and stars and relax. The landscaping is beautiful and was one of my favorite things about the cottage. I enjoyed drinking coffee out on the patio every morning among the tropical plants. Claudia was a wonderful host and was readily available anytime we needed her, yet very respectful of our privacy. There is a Publix within a 1 minute walk. I would gladly return to this rental.

Fabulous time!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us shared the charming cottage and had a wonderful time! Cottage is not large but is absolutely clean, well-supplied and so pretty.

Grill, hot tub, kayaks, water toys - all made the days even better. Claudia and Nick were so friendly and took care of anything we needed quickly.

Grocery store and trolley stop across the street made life easy.

Perfect stretch of beach out front completed our stay.

We'd come back - tomorrow!
