  • 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"

  • 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!"

  • Marvelous beach front cottage

    "This is the first time we stayed in Ft Myers Beach and we couldn't have picked a better location. Right on the beach, beautiful views, house was well maintained and very comfortable (love the old Florida feel of the house architecture). The pictures don't do it justice. Being mid-island it was close to just about anything you may need or want. Ileana was an extremely gracious hostess and available whenever we had a question. Great place for small families and couples. We will be back!"

  • Perfect Place for Quiet Relaxing Vacation

    "My college roommates and I spent a week at this beautiful home that is a stones throw to a beautiful beach that was never crowded. The home is updated, very clean, and has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. We spent hours floating in the private pool after walking or sitting for a few hours on the beach. There is a great upscale fresh fish restaurant and an ocean front bar with casual food within walking distance of the home. We did take the Trolley to the pier once, but once was enough for the pier. I do wish there were a few more restaurants within walking distance, but the private pool and the location of the home to the beach outweighed that drawback. I would definitely stay here again. The owner Ann Marie was very helpful and is very hands on as far as managing the property."
