Convenient location. Well kept interior.

The property was lacking a dishwasher, dresser drawers for storage, and a laundry basket. Otherwise everything was in fine condition.

Myself and 2 friends came to Ft Myers Beach for our annual girls trip. We pick a different spot every year. This place was amazing, fresh look with a beach theme, amazing bamboo floors, pool area (amazing), along with the short walk to the beach (1/2 a block) and restaurants and the canal is on property too with a deck. The caretaker Dave, was available for any needs we may have needed. I would recommend all to stay there from couples to family, to girls weekend. This was one of our favorite stays we have had. We will be back sooner than later, I am sure!!

What a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and stayed in Captain's Quarters which was SO nice. We were greeted by Josh who gave us a run down of the place, the pool, etc and gave us advice on where to eat, shop and how to get to the beach. The unit was so clean and we felt like we were at home. We will be back again next year. We spent most of the time relaxing in the pool and grilling out. Its so close to the beach too. Overall wonderful experience. Thank you for an incredible relaxing honeymoon!

A great property!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing!! We have stayed in two of the three units and loved every minute. The parking was right outside our unit and friends were able to park close by.

You can not find a more beautiful pool and perfect location close to all of the Fort Myers Attractions.

We will be going back!

My nightmare of a vacation!

  • 1 of 5

My family and I, rented the boathouse for one week. I must say, nice grounds, however, not exactly convenient parking, but manageable. If others are joining you that are driving to Ft. Myers beach, you could find yourself with parking troubles. That was the start of our nightmare stay here. When my husband and I arrived there wasn't any power in the boathouse. So we stayed in the lower cabin (2bed/ 1bath). That was okay for the first evening, with the anticipation that power would be restored the next day. The next day came and the only power in the boathouse the was restored was the refrigerator and a couple of lights. The whole weekend required five adults/ one six year old and two dogs to stay in the small unit. Now understand, that cooking a meal was near impossible. The grill ran out of propane during the middle of the first meal that we attempted to cook on Monday. The sugar ants where next to impossible to keep out of the kitchen and baths, even though we were unable to shower until Monday evening. With all this said , truthfully, this was the worst trip I've ever taken in my life, and the sad part is, it was the first trip my family has taken together in ten years since they have grown up. This was the biggest waste of money and time in my life! None of us even enjoyed this much anticipated time for even One hour of the stay! We all even left the nightmare of a vacation early!! I really would not recommend this place, even thought the grounds are nice, not exactly clean, but convenient. Fifteen years of enjoying Ft. Myers Beach and recommending the area of Florida to many, I just am not certain that I ever want to go back again after this experience. Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I am certain you will find it most helpful with making your decision on accomidations in Ft. Myers Beach.
