  • Christmas at Captains Bay

    "My husband and I and our 2 adult daughters enjoyed a 2 weeks escape from the Canadian cold at Diegos condo in Dec 2015. The description and photos on homeaway are entirely accurate, the condo was clean and decorated as shown, comfortable and more than adequate for our stay. There was pretty much everything you need in the kitchen, the only thing I missed was a blender. I also appreciated some staples being there already, dishwasher detergent, dishsoap, laundry detergent, paper towels, tp so you don' t have to run out immediately. We liked being able to park right by the elevator in the shade, the 2 pools were lovely and we never had an issue finding a lounge chair to sun at. The beach is a short walk across the street through the Wyndhams parking lot, and is lovely. The Wyndham offers water sports for reasonable prices and cabana/lounge chairs for $20 a day, but we used Diegos chairs that he has in a storage area by the parking spot. Although frequent visitors to many other parts of Florida over the years this was our first time in Fort Myers Beach and we loved it. Not pretensious, lots of great restaurants around, lots of things to see and do within an hours drive. We did Everglades City/airboating one day, Naples and the zoo another as the girls had fond memories of it when their grandparents owned a condo there for many years. Sanibel and Captiva another day, which brings me to my biggest negative, traffic. Getting on/off FMB at the north end of the island can take considerable time as it is a one lane street each way , same thing on Sanibel/Captiva but it is a touristy area, I guess you have to expect it. Exiting the island on the south end is out of the way but at least you are moving. Another negative was the 1 grocery store Publix certainly takes advantage of tourists with very expensive prices for groceries. I would assume off island stores in Fort Myers itself are better? We enjoyed eateries Nervous Nellies, Doc Fords down by Times Square area and Skyes, South Beach and Pinchers near the condo. Diego gives you some good advice regarding restaurants, rentals etc and we will have to go again to sample more of the fun of the area. There are also tons of tiki bars/happy hours to take advantage of, although my freshly turned 19 year old daughter was not impressed by being " carded" pretty consistently, even though she was with us, as age in Florida is 21. Lastly, Diego was great to deal with, we will be back! The Nairns"

  • Just like the Old TV show (Adventure in Paradise)

    "We were so glad that you let us share your Condo. We spent a great month at your Condo. Everything was great. The condo was in immaculate condition. We enjoyed the sunsets and sunrises. We even enjoyed the storms we had while we here. We had some construction going on around us but we were told before hand that we might have it. The condo was neat and clean, well furnished and I definitely would recommend this unit to anyone. Thank you again for letting us share your little piece of Paradise."

  • More than you will ever need!

    "We were SO pleased with our condo choice! This condo not only is in a fantastic location on Sanibel but it has EVERYTHING that you can possibly need! To list a few (I'm sure I'll forget a bunch)- you have a washer/dryer in unit, LOTS of beach towels to use, TONS of beach toys and beach chairs, games for kids to play while relaxing in the unit, a pantry/fridge that are stocked with the basic condiments and seasonings (I recommend going to the unit to see what is there BEFORE going to the grocery store. I know that we left a bunch and also a bunch of drinks that we did not finish - others have obviously left a bunch also). The kitchen is fully stocked and if you cook (I sure didn't) you will have everything you need. The furnishings are very nice. The beds are extra comfy and we had fantastic sleep - which you often do not when your in a bed away from home. We did not need it but the unit has a crib and other boosters etc for kids. The lanai is so nice and being able to be out there to enjoy the weather without the bugs was a plus. I have never seen a sunrise and we took advantage of the great view three times during our stay. You must take the bikes for an early morning ride after that sunrise and go for a little ride to Baileys. Its about an hour round trip and will get the blood pumping early! (who am I kidding - we came back and took a nap before hitting the beach at 11). The beach chairs are fantastic. you put them in the waves and sit back and enjoy! It was in the low to mid 90s when I was there and I actually got a "chill" when a breeze blew. If tennis is your thing they have tennis rackets. We have no clue how to play but my husband and son had a blast seeing who could miss the ball the most. As I said I did not cook at all the week we were there (they were on their own for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch) - I highly recommend on Sanibel - Matzaluna (Italian) and Cheeseburger Cheeseburger. The shakes are FANTASTIC at CB CB! Try the blueberry cheesecake - YUMMM. On Captiva we love the Bubble Room, Mucky Duck and Captiva Cantina. If you go to Captiva stay for the sunset - its SO beautiful. Parking is limited up there but its worth the little aggravation. Long review but to make it short - you will not be disappointed if you rent this condo. The owners are very responsive and have created a condo that you and your family will have a fantastic vacation in! Can't wait to visit again."
