Fabulous Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous trip to these cottages. We had booked both cottages and they were gorgeous Florida beach cottages, exactly as described. This was for a family get together/holiday and three generations of our family loved them. The beach access right outside the back door was a huge hit and you couldn't find a more perfect spot to relax, although it was close enough to everything that you could have as relaxed or active a break as you wished to. There was off street parking right outside the front of the properties and the location was perfect, a trolley stop 2 minutes walk away which brought you right up to Time Square in just minutes and a very short drive to Publix. Cecilia in Sunworks made the whole process so easy for us booking from overseas and we really couldn't have asked for anyone more helpful. She was a pleasure to deal with and nothing was too much trouble for her. I would highly recommend a stay in the cottages for anyone considering a trip to Fort Myers Beach.

Cute cottage, nice view, step right out on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Great, relaxed week with friends for reasonable price. Convenient location and amenities. Loved the mature coconut palms and various other native landscaping details. Water was calm, shallow. Beach is clean, quiet this time of year; almost like your own private beach at times. Long walks are easy any time. I would have stayed another week, if the house had been available, and would definitely consider returning for future visits to the area.

Only is just close enough to beach access parking for day trippers to decide that they have walked far enough to stop when they reach the spot right in the middle of our beach view from the back deck.

Perfect direct beachfront cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the South cottage. It had two bedrooms, two full baths. A kitchen, family room and dining area all together. One bedroom had a queen bed and one had two twin beds. If you needed it there's also a pull out queen sofa in family room. We had four people and it felt very spacious and comfortable. The central air worked great, as did all appliances in kitchen, and washer/dryer. When we as arrived all the blinds were closed. We immediately

opened all blinds and the sun shown in - lots of windows. This place was built in the fifties

and was decorated like you expect in Florida. It was very clean and I wouldn't ask for

anything more. I much prefer a house to a condo. I like the privacy instead of hoards of

people. The thing I like most and the reason I selected the property was it is direct

beachfront - out your back door your in the sand. The property has palms trees we sat

under for the shade at times. There was always a nice breeze. You did not have to tromp

through dunes to get to the beach - you were right there. They had a blender, coffee

maker, beach towels, sheets, regular towels, all sorts of cooking utensils, ice maker in

freezer, lounge chairs, patio chairs, Adirondack chairs, outdoor grill, side tables, patio

table, etc. Everything we needed. Publix is right down the street. I highly recommend this little jewel, especially for the price.

family get together

  • 4 of 5

We rented both cottages since it was a family get together.The cottages are in a great area, close to everything. They were clean and could accomodate the whole family of 12, it was nice to have 4 bathrooms. There were 5 kids. tweens and teens and they took over the north cottage where they play games, listen to music and watch movies at night, while the adults could have quiet conversations in the other one. We cooked most meals at the south cottage and we all ate there together since it has more room for everyone. We all enjoyed the beach right out our back door and the beautiful sunsets different every evening.

Best Vacation EVER!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We rented both cabins in 2009, one for my husband, I and 3 kids, the other for my parents and 2 of their closest friends. We enjoyed meals together and long walks on the beach. There were lots of things for the kids to do...not a complaint from them the whole week. They read books, watched movies, napped, surfed, looked for shells and discovered many sea creatures. They are begging to go this year, to the same place, the cottage on the beach.

The cabins were charming as titled, I can't think of anything that we needed but clothes and food.

This is just out of the "busy" but close enough to lots of restaurants and shopping. We went with doing "nothing" in mind and thats exactly what we did. If we decide to visit this area again....I wouldnt stay anywhere else.
