  • Fun Trip with Family and Friends

    "This home was exactly as promised! We have rented a number of homes over the years and this one was definitely well stocked, clean and had a great layout for a big group of ten people all staying together in one house. The location was perfect! We could walk to Junkanoos for terrific pizza or a cold drink Oceanside. The beach was super close to the beach home---literally a two-minute walk. We dealt with the owner, Theresa, who responded right away with a detailed description of the home and price for the week. The reservation process was easy and made me feel confident that I was in good hands. We have already booked our trip for next year. We can't wait go back!"

  • Wonderful family reunion spot

    "The harmony house worked out very well for me, 2 daughters and 4 grandsons. The beds were comfy, the kitchen nice, and the pool was a big hit. We had to cross Estero Blvd to get to the beach but the wagon that was provided worked well for transporting chairs, umbrellas, Ect. If I was to be really picky I would say the low water pressure in the kitchen sink as well as no cold water was annoying but not enough to prevent me from returning."

  • 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"

    "Two glorious weeks here. I felt like I was back home! This was our second stay as we stayed here in July of '14 as well. We love the house and It's location to the beach couldn't be better, It is such a short walk. We also love all the nice little touches that Todd & Mary do as well and it is perfect for our family of 4. We would spend the first half of the day at the beach, come home to eat lunch and hang by the pool the rest of the day. Our older two daughters stayed at another one of the owners properties called Palm Grove, two miles down the road. They loved that house just as much. I would definitely stay at that home as well. If you rent from Todd & Mary, you can't go wrong. Our pool seemed to be a little bigger than the one at Palm Grove so it was always our house that we hung out at. Although I have to say I loved the pool area at Palm Grove. And of course The Beach House has the pool side bathroom and beer fridge. Our 4 legged babies loved the houses as well. My chihuahuas HATE the hard FL grass to potty in. No worries here! It's all crushed shells in the back. Thanks for being so pet friendly! Hoping to be back again in another year or two.....thanks again!"
