Super clean house, great pool, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The Captains Cottage was super clean and had most everything we needed. We loved the pool! The beach is super close, it took 2 minutes to walk there and was super clean. Everything was within walking distance but we rented bikes for 5 days and they were so much fun. We will certainly be staying in the Captains Cottage.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

First time to Fort Myers Beach, with our kids, and we couldn't have picked a better VRBO. Right by the beach, restaurants, shopping, etc. The captain's quarters is the unit we stayed in, absolutely amazing! The pool is amazing, especially at night! The owners are awesome, and the price is perfect. I will be returning soon!

Great time hanging around pool area

  • 5 of 5

The unit was great, the best part was the porch on the second floor overlooking the pool area. The weather was sunny every day.

Will stay here again

Convenient location. Well kept interior.

  • 3 of 5

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!!
