Why Cleo Morgan chose West 1st Street

My husband and I are Ft. Myers natives, having moved back home in 2008. We love this area and purchased our 1924 Arts & Crafts home, which is quite close to where we grew up. The house came with a cottage at the back of the property. We completely renovated the building, and first used it as my husband's ceramic studio. After purchasing the house next door & starting it our Green Palm Villa Vacation Rental, we decided to turn the ceramic studio into a our lovely Green Palm Cottage rental. We have had many lovely guest from all over the Us and also Europe. It's always a pleasure to meet them & be sure they are well taken care of. My reviews have all been 4's & 5's. No one has been disappointed!

What makes this Studio unique

Our guests always comment on how COMFORTABLE and CLEAN our rentals are. This is very important to us as we work very hard to give our guests a stress-free vacation with us by providing a lot of "extras" to make sure they have everything they need. Our location is a plus, being within a 15-minute walk to Downtown Ft. Myers and the parks along the Caloosahatchee River. We have a great Publix grocery near by, so shopping is easy and fast after a long flight or drive to Ft. Myers. Restaurants, bars, shops, antique stores, banks, drug stores and gas stations are all close. We have a new public library downtown on First Street, with the Berne Dave Art Center across the street from it.There are events nearly every week-end in Downtown, such as Music Walk, Art Walk, music & art festivals, etc. The Farmers Market is held in Centennial Park by the bridge, every Thursday from 7am-1pm. There you'll find great local produce, baked goods, fresh flowers, gifts & food trucks. Ft. Myers Beach & Sanibel Island are about 15 miles south - a straight shot down picturesque McGregor Blvd.

Cleo was a great host and was always available to answer any questions we had! It truly felt like a home away from home :)

                                                              Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm so happy that you and your mom loved our place.

                                                              Cleo is very nice and attentive of her guest. She made us feel very welcomed, and was readily available to assist us. She is the first owner to refund our deposit only a few hours after we checked out! The unit is very nice, clean, and even though it's an efficiency it did not feel small. You have a really nice screened back porch to enjoy your evenings with a glass of wine. I would of rated it a 5 star, but if I'm to mention a downside it's the bathroom. Even though it is nicely remodeled, the toilet area is a bit small. Over all, well worth the price we paid! It was a pleasure meeting her and her husband. Would definitely rent again!

                                                              Excellent place to spend relaxing weekend

                                                              WE went to Fort Myers for Labor day weekend. I chose Green Palm Cottage mostly for its central location but it was so much more. A beautifully furnished stand-alone cottage with lots of character. The hosts were so gracious and so willing to talk about what to see and the best places to eat. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at this cottage and will definitely return. Thanks so much Cleo & Bucky.

                                                              Cozy cottage and wonderful hosts

                                                              The cottage is set in wonderful tropical garden with flowering vines, trees and palms. Open spacious design of cottage was great place to relax. Close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. Well equipped kitchen and private porch. Hosts live in house on the premises so they were alway available. Very clean and cozy.
