Selecting the right vacation rental can be difficult, especially in a location like Fort Myers where there are hundreds to choose from. The only thing we regret about renting Kathy’s bungalow is that we couldn’t stay longer than 2 weeks. From the moment we saw the bungalow online, viewed the photos, read the description and all the glowing reviews we knew this was the place for us.
Kathy promptly answered any questions we had and was happy to provide as much information as we needed to make our decision. The day of our arrival we were delayed over 8 hours and instead of arriving midafternoon we got to the house around 11:30pm. We advised Kathy of our late arrival and she surprised us with goodies to snack on at the late hour. This put the travel hassles to sleep and got our 2 week stay off to a wonderful start.
Our objective for this trip was to decompress and not have any particular agenda. We quickly discovered there was no need to even leave the place as everything we were looking for was there. It was in a wonderful neighborhood where you could forget the car and easily walk (or use the bikes at the house) and go to restaurants, bars, shops and even a Publix. The back yard and pool area was totally private and complete with sand, palm trees, chairs, table and an incredibly inviting pool. The very large screened in lanai was perfect for meals, reading and simply relaxing. I quickly secured a cozy reading corner!
Beach towels, air mattresses, beach goodies for kids and other general household items were also there. A nice selection of movies and CDs were enjoyed as well.
A few favorite local spots were Ron Dao’s for pizza, Cape Cod Fish Company for the best seafood outside of New England and Love Boat Ice Cream for dessert. Yes, you’re on vacation so dietary restrictions go out the window! Crave is a wonderful place to visit for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
The bungalow’s location provides easy access to both the Fort Myers and Sanibel beaches. But you really don’t need to go to the beach with that wonderfully secluded pool just off the lanai.
In summary, there is no need to continue your search for a vacation rental. This house is perfect for a couple or the entire family. You’ll quickly feel at home in Kathy’s bungalow and, if you’re like us, will definitely be a repeat visitor.
