Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This property is well maintained, clean and close to the beach. Beach access is across the street. We couldn't have asked for a better place for a week vacation for myself, wife, and three boys. The only con (and not a huge problem) was the noise from the 7-11 gas station next door. This property is in the quieter area of Ft. Myers Beach which was nice for us. Very affordable and we'll worth the trip.

Cozy & Charming!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation! The cottage was charming, very cozy and inviting. The location was perfect! We enjoyed the nearby restaurants and for the evenings in, the Publix was only a short drive. My teen enjoyed the convenience of having the jet ski rentals nearly at our front door. Everything was clean and the backyard was a real treat. We appreciated the beach chairs and floats. I would definitely recommend this cottage to others.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week for my sisters wedding at the Diamondhead Hotel. It was perfect! My parents have a condo on the South end of the beach so we rented a scooter and this house is located perfectly on the beach to zip over to Diamondhead, or down to the condo, or for dinner anywhere. With the 7-11 across the street we could get any supplies we needed for the house. With two bedrooms, full kitchen, big living room, and the backyard it was MUCH bigger than any hotel room and MUCH less expensive. Everyone who stayed at the hotel for the wedding was jealous when they visited us! And even though this house is not directly on the beach, there is a beach access right across the road and it maybe takes 30 seconds from the front door to sand. We would recommend this place to our very best friends and family for a Ft. Myers vacation.

Great Vacay

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very accomodating and the property was everything it claims to be.

Only about a 2 minute walk to the beach, and it's a nice quiet beach, great for young children or those who like to read.
