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

My family is local and we lost my father in September so I wanted to do something special for my mother this holiday season. She loved the beach all her life and has not been in at least 20 years. So as a last minute decision I had to scatter to find a house. Jim (the owner) was very kind and made this happen for us. He truly went above and beyond to make this a VERY special vacation. The home is comfortable and has everything you need if you show up with a suit case and tooth brush. Her grandchildren came and went as their schedules allowed and there was plenty of space. Activity areas included two dining areas, two living areas, pool and boat dock sitting areas. Heated pool made swimming in any temperature possible and The canoe's, kayaks, bikes and games kept everyone very busy and was a great bonus I don't think you will find anywhere else already in the garage. A very short 5 minute walk to the beach made it possible to get mom there in her wheel chair and she got her toes in the sand for the first time in many years. The Mound House was a lot of fun for both the kids and grown ups. :)) I would highly recommend this home as you can't go wrong.

I can't say enough good things about our stay in this home. I call it a home because it was in every way a home for us for 5 days. When we arrived one of the screens had come loose but Jim was there right away in the morning to fix it. My only suggestion would be that they post the check in and check out times somewhere. Instructions for working the TV and internet were very good but we couldn't figure out how to turn on the pool light. Turns out it didn't work but the switch still was hard to find. Other than that, it was an awesome time, clean and handy to the beach. Just wish we could have seen a Manatee! :(

This is a wonderful home to experience Fort Myers Beach in! It's located just down the street from the beach (5 min nice walk). It has a pool, lanai, grill, boat dock and canal in the back of the house. On the boat dock we really enjoyed watching the iguanas and manatees. It was amazing. The house is very clean, very comfortably furnished, very nicely done. Kitchen was fully stocked with dishes. Garage has bicycles, chairs, kayaks, a wagon, coolers. Beds are comfortable. Very quiet neighborhood. All we needed was our clothes. We definately didn't want to leave. We hope to stay here again soon. You won't find a nicer owner to rent from than Jim. Thank you for making our vacation before my breast cancer surgery, the wonderful relaxing 11 days we needed! We couldn't have picked a better home or location!
