  • Best POOL home w/BEACH proximity

    "Cathy & I enjoyed our stay at Desert Rose. The home is amazing, well maintained & beautifully decorated. The beds are comfortable and the space is huge. The outside area is a great place to relax and enjoy time, any time of the day or night. The screened in lanai keeps out the critters and the bugs at bay. The BEACH!!! The BEST PART for our experience was the provided BEACH CART which allowed us to haul all our gear with little effort to the beach. The beach itself is an excellent area which is only 2 blocks away, or actually 7 houses from the driveway!!!  The beach has direct access at the end of the street. No need to go ‘down the way’ to get to the beach. Just walked out – onto the sand *with a foot wash right there* and enjoy the water immediately. Our 9# MinPin, Leo, enjoyed the stay. The walks along the neighborhood and up and down the beach in search of Gulf/Ocean treasures left by the gentle waves is something he misses dearly (as do we). Being that we live on the East Coast near the ocean, we don’t have a local area where dogs are permitted to be on the beach. KEEP IN MIND, Dogs ARE allowed on LEE County beaches, as long as they are on a leash (and bring a bag in case (s)he does their business). With Publix close by, it was GREAT to get to Desert Rose without a lot of food baggage to haul. We went next door and stocked up our NEST with supplies and stock. There is a GREAT kitchen with about EVERYTHING you’d need there for your use. The LEMON/CITRUS press there was magnificent, once I googled how to use it.  The POOL is EXCELLENT in being so clean and refreshing (AND HEATED TOO!!!). The deck area around the pool is greatly decorated and relaxing to enjoy. We were surprised to learned that the owner lives on-site (as the live-in Super, as he said it) in a ground floor addition, but once we realized we had privacy and seclusion at the home, it was relaxing and enjoyable. We DID miss the performance Skip does at a local establishment Sunday morning, but look forward to watching him play his music on our next visit. **Oh, did I tell you? We BOOKED our NEXT vacation in November, before we left for home to the East Coast. Thank You Skip, for sharing your home with us on our bi-annual vacations in 2016. PEACE & Be Safe"

  • Paradise on the beach for all ages

    "A wonderful place for a vacation with a fabulous view of the beach. The well equipped condo unit, lovely updated decor, secure building, walkable location, beach & pool all more than met our expectations. This was our first year & we hope to make it an annual tradition. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance or a short drive, if you prefer to grill there were always clean barbecue pits available in a fun setting around the pool deck. Anyone staying here could not be disappointed."

  • So Relaxing

    "It has been years since my husband and I have had a vacation. We decided that we would travel to Florida. The Maine winters are long and we were celebrating our 40th anniversary, where better to go than sunny Florida. We made the right choice! We stepped into the condo and immediately felt at home. The Shoens home away from home is warm and tastefully decorated, and the view is breathtaking. The beach is directly across the street and the community pool is steps from the complex. There are two restaurants within easy walking distance jfrom the condo, and also one in the complex near the pool. There is a washer and dryer in the condo which is very helpful. You really need nothing more than your toothbrush & bathing suit. Everything you need is either in the condo or close by. The condo is very quiet as it sits back away from the road. At night there is very little traffic, it is peaceful. If you are a sun seeker and love to be surrounded by friendly people, look no further. You will not find a lovelier spot for the money and the Shoen's could not be more thoughtful or accommodating. We hope to return again next year! Many thanks!!"
