We've spent a couple of weeks summer vacation in the Iguana Cottage and had a wonderful time. The house is well maintained, very clean, and in a very quiet neighborhood, just a 5 min walk from the beach. Despite its proximity to the beach, the house is far enough away from busy Estero Blvd that absolutely no street noise can be heard. All information in the listing is accurate and what you see is what you get. They were no complications whatsoever and we had no problems with anything in the house or yard. The pool is very nice, too.
Jim truly is an extremely responsive and gracious host. We've met a couple of times during our stay, for example, when Jim looked after the pool, and it was a true delight. All communications prior to our stay were very efficient and easy (and the security deposit was refunded within a day after our departure).
All in all, a perfect vacation experience. Of the three places we've rented in the Naples/Fort Myers area during the past couple of years, this has been our favorite.
Thanks very much to Jim and Liz for a great experience. We look very much forward to coming back next year!

Another wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our second vacation staying at the Iguana Cottage. We got married on the beach and spent time with our family. What a wonderful home. The canal is fun for kayaking (there are 2 in the garage), watching fish jump, and iguanas on the boat dock. We really enjoyed the pool in the screened-in lanai and the grill for cooking out. We enjoy the bikes for a beach ride or loading up the wagon with supplied chairs to go spend a day at the beach. It's in a nice quiet area with wonderful neighbors and a very short walking distance to the beach and restaurants. It's a very clean home with comfortable beds, tastefully decorated, and has everything you need to feel at home. All you need is your luggage and a trip to the nearby grocery store. Can't wait to go back. Jim is wonderful and close by if you need anything. Thanks Jim and Liz, for another wonderful vacation we will never forget!

Lovers of Fort Myers Beach

Iguana Cottage was an excellent holiday home in a perfect location on our favourite beach.A spacious and comfortable home although I feel the cottage was in need of a decor revamp especially the bathrooms.
I think the cleaning team need to be checked out as I had to clean both bathrooms on arrival,I removed the mould and mildew covered plastic shower curtain and washed the nylon curtain and bath mats (the wash tub water was darker than the canal).The cockroach bait traps around the cottage showed there was a problem,we did a daily search each morning and removed the beasties before our grandson got to them,it did tail off and we did'nt have any on last 4 days.
We have returned to FMB for the past 7 years and will do again, hopefully to Iguana cottage, it had everything we required and more.Our little grandson still asks to go to the beach and to swim in the waterfalls everyday,its our idea of paradise.

Owner's Response: Looking forward to their return next year to their slice of paradise. Thanks to their input we have alerted the cleaning company, which generally does an amazing job, to regularly wash all floor rugs. Also we do have the house professionally sprayed each month which was just before their arrival. Unavoidable not to have a few dead bugs immediately after in the middle of the summer.

We hope to return....

We had the luxury of spending one month at Iguana Cottage. The house, accouterments, and location are well described here: The house is roomy enough to be comfortable; it is incredibly well stocked with games, kitchen appliances, movies, kayaks, bikes, etc. ; and it is literally two blocks from the beach. This was our first time to FMB. We didn’t realize that being two blocks from the beach access was a feature worth seeking out. Jim, the owner, was wonderful. He was Johnny-on-the-spot responding to the previous renters concerns described here about plumbing and our operator error with the satellite TV. Jim is invested in making sure his guests enjoy their stay. Also, we appreciated the fact that Jim allows dogs. Our Minnesota dog loved her first trip to Florida. She loved the Iguana Cottage and the Mound House. We’d stay here again.

Stayed at this property for a week with my husband and his parents. The home has plenty of space and great amenities likes pool, kayaks, bikes and beach gear. The location is lovely, on the end of a quiet street a few minutes light walk to the beach. The home has a great patio space with private dock where we were visited by the home's namesake iguana! The only thing that would keep me from returning to this property is that there is a plumbing issue and the tub drains very slow. You are ankle deep in water by the end of a shower. It appeared to me from the guest book that this issue has been ongoing since the owners started renting the property. The only other issue was a torn screen in a section of the lanai that hung open. Overall, enjoyable stay. The owners even went to the trouble to decorate the house for Christmas for our stay.

Owner's Response: Sounds like the vacation was still very enjoyable. I do always tell every guest to immediately call me on my cell phone if they have any problem or needs. I live locally and would have immediately sent a plumber out to correct slow drains, which I have now done. - Jim
