Beach and restaurants within walking distant, boating, fishing walking, biking taking a great paddle boat out, just enjoying the canal and the gulf, watching great wildlife including the dolphins and menattee sometimes play in our waterways. Overall it is just a fabulous place, peaceful outdoor amenities where you can sip your coffee, enjoy your meals, cook on the BBQ and smoker that all our guests love and leave with a very memorable vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had originally booked this lovely little cottage for a week and fell in love upon arrival. I was lucky enough to be able to extend my stay for a second week. The owners of this property have thought of everything that make staying here cozy and comfortable. The place is spotless and very tastefully decorated in "beach cottage" style. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with every cooking utensil and gadget you could possibly need. There is a huge tiki hut in the back yard that sits over the water. There are several restaurants and an ice-cream shop within easy walking distance. Hudson Beach, an easy walk from the cottage, is a small realistic slice of real Florida. This was a working visit for me and I spent many an hour using my laptop out on the deck. The wireless access included in the rental was a real bonus for me. I would happily recommend this rental to anyone who wants a quiet Florida retreat setting. Shopping & theaters are a simple 5 minute drive. Beautiful place! Amanda, Fort Myers, Fl

Unforgettable affordable experience.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I needed to get away for the weekend and this was decided last minute. We found Kong and his property on vrbo. We read the reviews and everyone was 100% right. This place is awesome. Kayaks and a paddle boat with a troller motor. We did some snorkeling off some beautiful private island area. I give 4 stars only because it doesn't have a pool. Otherwise, this was the most inexpensive awesome 2 day vacation my husband and I have had. We will be returning. Thanks Kong!!

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the month of February and enjoyed every minute. This adorable house has everything you need for a relaxing, fun vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks and my wife especially enjoyed riding the adult 3-wheeler. We spent as much time as possible soaking up the sun and view from the large deck. An outdoor grill and smoker are provided which we used once. Hudson beach and restaurants are walkable, as well as a wonderful Greek restaurant and ice cream shop.

Beautiful, Wonderful, Relaxing, Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect. It was just what we needed. I wouldn't change

anything or do anything else to the home. It was perfect, we had everything

we needed and more. We enjoyed the dock and being outdoors so much we did not have time to cook (didn't want to cook) Lol.... We even ordered in one night and ate on the dock with the tiki lights. This was awesome. The Kayaks were great, we brung one of ours just incase which let all 4 of us have one. I loved all the decor inside and out. Everything was very clean. Kong was very pleasant and very helpful with booking our dates. I could go on and on about how great this place was for us and our 2 boys. ( P.S. Future guest, look for the Hula Dancer). I found her when I wasn't looking. Thanks Kong & Linda for a wonderful and peaceful vacation.
