average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Great house and a very good place to be

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for a short period with a family with two middle-aged kids.

The house has all you need (and much more) and give us very comfortable feeling. The main bedroom with her bad room facilities has the exposure of a Honeymoon Suit. The house is clean and well maintained. It is also nice to have your at the Lanai.

In the close area there are a lot of things to do. In the house there is many documentation available for new daily ideas. We visit the beaches at Sanibel and Captiva. We hired a boat at Captiva and saw the Manatees and Dolphins.

Summarized, it is great house and a very good place to be. We keep some very good memories

house lafloride fort myers,FL

  • 5 of 5

we stayed at the lucaya complex for the month of jan/2012.we absolutely loved it.

the pics on the computer do not do it justice.the house was amazing with the

ceilings to the sky and the decor just perfect. everything you need for your stay

is there, even beach towels and chairs and coolers!

all the people we met in the complex were very friendly and helpful.

the owners of our unit provided so much information on restaurants and things

to do in fort myers.

one of our favorite places was manatee park. since it was a touch cool when we

first arrived we saw alot of manatees. we went there 4 times!

i would highly recommend this great property!

Pampered Vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you truly want a vacation where you only have to being your clothes and have time to enjoy all that Ft Myers area offers - this is the place. Lucaya! The owners take pride in their property. The town house is quite lovely and offers the security of a gated community.

The pool is amazing and well maintained. You can enjoy a daily walk without leaving the grounds.

This is a very nice vacation rental it is even nicer than the description, the location is perfect for us, close to the beach, close to other areas of interest. The linens are beautiful, the kitchen is very well supplied with enough good dishes and glassware for everyday and for entertaining. It is well maintained, very clean and very nicely decorated. It is just like home, but with sunshine. We love it there.

All you need!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed every bit of the house and its surrounding.

Around the house you see a lot of beautifull exotic palmtrees. The house itself has definitely all you need: Like the owners thought of everything to make life as comfortable as possible. My compliments!

The house is also close to great shoppingareas (I've never shopped so much on holidays) and above all: it's close to several beaches. We've also been on the East coast of Florida but we actually preferred the Gulf of Mexico. We also hired a boat to sail with the dolfins. It was so amazing..
