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!

MOSTLY WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY-BEACH IS SOOOOO CLOSE!

  • 3 of 5

If you love the beach you'll love this quite private cottage. Yay! - you don't have to cross a busy road to be at the shore!

The cottage is fantastic! Clean, airy, well appointed and immaculate. You have all appliances except for a dishwasher.

The beach is a very short and pretty walk from the cottage. There are no high rises nearby so I think you'll enjoy how much space and even privacy there is on the beach. The beach is clean and so is the water. There is a Publix grocery only minutes away from the cottage.The spa looked great in the online posting but was off (and cold) when I arrived. Also the water flow from the jets was quite weak. Be sure to ask that the spa be at your desired temperature upon arrival.

WARNINGS - 1. Ask Claudia in detail about the WAIVER you are required to sign. It alarmingly seems to take away all your rights in certain events. 2. Ask Claudia about the air conditioning policy. They ask that you not lower the thermostat below 76 degrees. This was uncomfortable.

Overall I was able to overlook the negatives because the beach was so important to me and it was wonderful. As long as you know in advance what to expect then you’ll be fine.

Claudia was incredibly responsive to my needs and could not have been more pleasant.

Owner's Response: Dear Robert, Thank you again for staying with us, we loved having you. We are sorry if the room temperature at AC cooled 76 degrees was not how you would have liked it. However we hope the additional free standing fan we provided, together with the ceiling fan, helped to make you feel more comfortable. The Waiver is a standard liability document, required for the use of the hot tub and its safe usage. Please know that it is standard procedure, whenever a hot tub, pool, or watersports are involved, like the kayaks and paddle boards we offer. My apologies that the hot tub was not heated upon your arrival. We ask the guests to set the desired temperature themselves, as and when required. However we will be happy to do so upon request. Many Thanks

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a great place to stay that is just seconds from the beach - look no further than this cottage! Cozy layout with plenty of room and the extra touches (like plenty of towels, beach toys, beach chairs, and a HOT TUB) were perfect! Claudia and Nick were so nice and kept in touch with us to make sure we had everything we needed. I loved that I could bring my little dog along on this vacation to enjoy the dog friendly beaches of Ft. Myers. We highly recommend this cottage and hope to stay again! ~ Candi and Stan
