About Dave or Jane McLachlan

My wife and I purchased our first house in Beachwalk Isles in 2009, and with the downturn in the real estate market, decided to 'rescue' another house in Beachwalk in 2010. This second house is our rental home that we call 'Sparkling Waters', because of the way the sun shimmers on the south facing lake.

Dave or Jane McLachlan purchased this house in 2010

Why Dave or Jane McLachlan chose Beachwalk Isles

The house was built in 2002 and was completely remodeled in 2010. We originally used a property manager, but found that we could market the property better on our own. We have enjoyed giving a more personal experience for our guests!

Sparkling Waters - A Terrific Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

Simply stated, the home is the most well maintained home our family has stayed in while visiting Ft. Myers, Florida over the past decade. It was comfortable, very clean and we were not disappointed. We were greeted at the home by Maria who showed us around the home and answered any questions. Use of the garage was also a nice plus. The pool area was clean and maintained well. Even the garage was painted and organized. I felt like I was welcome at this home not an intruder. Much thanks to the owners and Maria for helping our visit in 2017 one we will not forget.

Truely a home from home

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful stay at sparkling waters. The house has all the amenities we need. It is the perfect location for visiting Fort Myers Beach without staying on the beach. There are plenty of restaurants close by and we recommend having a donut and coffee at Dunkin Donuts and watching the world go by.

We would also recommend a visit to the beach cinema. It is great to watch a film with hot food. We also discovered Doc Fords restaurant and would recommend that.

Dave is very attentive and responds quickly to any issue. Maria always welcomes you with a happy smile

We can't wait til next year

The best of Beachwalk.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our yearly stay at this beautiful rental property. The south facing pool is perfect for those sun lovers and the covered dining area is great for an escape from the heat of the day. The house and pool area back onto a "lake" where you can find a multitude of wild life...and bird watching! This house is located within a short drive to the beach, walkable to several stores and restaurants. This is our "home away from home" and we look forward to returning year after year. Thanks Jane and Dave for always taking such good care of your home!
