Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
Having been to Fort Myers in the past we knew that we liked this location, what we didn't know was how special John's rental would be. Looking at photos gives you an idea of properties but until you are there you can't really be sure if it will be comfortable and live up to the reviews. We found it to be a perfect vacation spot for us. The complex is quiet consisting of 2 sets of 5 two story condos. John's property is the end unit. The fenced yard with the gazebo is situated so guests have privacy as well as a fantastic view of the lake. We found there were days that we just didn't want to leave the yard. Yes, there really are egrets & other waterfowl. Shortly after arriving, we checked to see if we could extend our time there. We were disappointed to learn that it was already booked.
The Barbara B Mann Performing Arts Center is within a 5-10 min drive, we were able to attend 2 performances. Parking is easy and there are good restaurants in that area. Some of our favorite restaurants are The Prawnbroker, University Grill, Cibo. Favorite casual ones not far from condo are LaCasita, Cape Cod Fish Company. On Captiva Island The Bubble Room is fun. We enjoy Nervous Nellies at Fort Myers Beach. While walking our dog one day we stopped at Caruso's Eats and Treats (aptly named) near the condo for a LoveBoat ice cream cone and soon learned that their meals are good too!
Favorite places in Fort Myers are Six Mile Cypress Slough, Edison& Ford Estates, Tanger Outlets. It is easy to get to the beaches at Fort Myers, Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel is a great birding place. Miromar Outlets are not too far. Discount shopping, consignment shopping, Costco,The Bell Tower Shops with movie theaters and restaurants are all close by,some within walking distance.
It was a pleasure meeting John. He asks for feedback about the property. It is obvious that he cares about the comfort of his guests. The upgrades he has made set this rental apart! The kitchen was great to work in. Check the pantry and frig before you shop, there are spices, oils etc there.The furniture is comfortable and that was an important consideration for us since we were there for 6 weeks.Lack of indoor eating space was mentioned. When the weather wasn't conducive (although eating outside was one of our favorite things) we took the bar stools and put them next to kitchen counter.
We have our deposit made for next year and looking forward to returning. Thanks, John!

A secluded hideaway in an otherwise crowded town

  • 5 of 5
I chuckled reading the "surround yourself with wildlife" heading before we booked, only to find out there is wildlife on Lake McGregor. OK, nothing on the scale of the Loch Ness monster, but a pretty good selection of birds.

The unit was terrific. We chose the location to be closer to numerous baseball games, so it worked for us. The major spaces (kitchen and 2 baths) have been recently upgraded with high end finishes. The real gem is the outside space which is very peaceful and serene. The traffic in Ft. Myers, the first week of high season is maddening. Coming home to this setting every night was very nice. The area was very quiet.

Things to be careful about: There really isn't any indoor dining space. My guess is that the kitchen renovation took out that area. You end up with a very large and nicely appointed kitchen. Going back to the outdoor space - it becomes your dining room. Which we liked. There's plenty of space in the living room to slouch with your meals. Anywho. You're going out most nights or doing take-out. Unless you're bringing grandma to put out an 8 course Thanksgiving meal every-night, you'll be fine.

The internet connection slowed to modem like speeds during our stay. I brought this up which the owner responded he pays for fast service and has complained to the cable company. Later during the same week, we visited two other Florida resort areas and found the same, slow internet. The owner was correct. The shear density of people, along with multiple devices that families now possess in these units, just drag the internet to a crawl. Everywhere. I also brought with me two, cellular internet hubs. Even they slowed to a crawl. You are going to have to read a newspaper. Sorry kids.

We had a small maintenance issue in the unit the owner promptly handled the incident, even though it wasn't crucial. Overall, we would return to this same unit, or consider renting from the same owner.

A neat, local dining find was The Prawnbroker. It's where the locals go. It's crowded, but we had a fine time chatting up the locals in the bar waiting for our table. Our meal was terrific.

This is a great place to stay. Clean, comfy and close to everything. This is the second time we have stayed here and plan on continuing our stays at this property any time we are in the area.

Lake McGregor condo

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in John's condo for the entire month of January. First, John and Sherrie did a wonderful job remodeling and decorating the unit. The setting is peaceful with a view of the lake (pond) right out the door. Many kinds of birds nest there, and are relatively tame for feeding. The outdoor terrace, table, and canopy provided a comfortable place to park daily. The unit is essentially socially isolated, within a working-class neighborhood. It is not in a complex, so there is no pool, clubhouse, or social gathering points. However, our Bichon made a number of friends, as there are puppies all over the neighborhood. Shopping and restaurants are nearby. While the overall atmosphere of the unit was pleasant, it lacked some basics. There is no table and chairs inside the condo. It's a pain to try to work on the computer hunched over the coffee table or eat on it. There are too few light sources in the downstairs bedroom-only one 40W. lamp and only one reading light in the master bedroom. While the VRBO ad says there is basic cable, the only channels available are the local networks and a few others. Netflix, Hula, Crackle, and other internet channels are available, but, perhaps, real cable will be installed in the near future. Basic amenities like toilet paper, dishwasher and laundry soaps, and wastebasket bags were not adequately provided for a long stay, but John was kind enough to replenish them. All-in-all we enjoyed a pleasant stay and would recommend this condo for people who don't need a lot of social stimulation but like a more serene atmosphere.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here over the Thanksgiving holiday and had a great time. The property is completely renovated with new bathrooms and an updated, modern kitchen. The property is right on a lake with a great patio area that overlooks the water. The property is also in a great location, 15 minutes to the beach and close to grocery stores and shopping.

The owner is very attentive to the renter's needs and issues. We had a minor water issue on Thanksgiving Day which John (the owner) fixed within an hour.

I would highly recommend the property.

Centrally located to beaches and shopping. 5 miles to Sanibel, 5 miles to Fort Myers Beach, 3 miles to Costco, 1 mile to Wal-Mart Foods. 1 mile to Cape Coral Parkway Bridge, 6 miles to downtown Fort Myers. 1 mile to Edison College. 3 miles to Bell Tower Shopping Mall. 3 miles to Bealls.

Golf: There are many golf course in the area. Myerlee Country Club is very close but I am not sure that it is public. Edison Country Club is just a short drive and is very popular.
