About Rhonda

This is me with my one and only grand baby. I moved to Fort Myers Beach after hurricane Charley. I am an independent insurance adjuster by trade so I knew I would be deployed here for 2-3 years. I found this property and purchased it. After years of remodeling it is now our island hideaway. We have made each unit with the comforts of home and extend and invitation for you to come and stay with us to enjoy your home away from home : )

Rhonda purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Rhonda chose Fort Myers Beach

This property is located mid island in a very quiet residential neighboor hood. Walk less than 2 minutes to the beach. New pool, spa and social fire pit area to enjoy. There are 7 individual very private and very quiet suites.

What makes this apartment unique

King pillow top beds with luxury linens used at the Ritz Carlton. Very quiet and relaxing.

Great place Great Location Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

Sorry this is so late...I always forget!

We stayed here in Sept 2016 to see how we liked the place and location to have our wedding. We really enjoyed our time there and enjoyed the unit we were given. So we decided to have our wedding at Ft Myers Beach and have our guests stay in the two buildings they have. I have seen all of the units and am excited to have them for our guests.

Thank you Rhonda for always being accessible and answering my questions no matter how many times you had already told me...

This property is great for any stay. The beach a short walk away.(2 min)

Looking forward to this Spring!

amazingly awesome....

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had booked the hide away a year before we arrived... we did read reviews over that year and were a little scared.... but when we arrived we were blown away by how amazingly beautiful all 7 properties were cleaned and decorated. We held our wedding reception at the house which was PERFECT..... I hope we make the hide away web page with the pics. The pool area was exactly what you want on vacation, just a place to relax and great conversations with friends and family... in all my wife and I and our 45 guest we very happy with the out come of the hide away.... its a very beautiful place, I recommend to all.....

Absolutely wonderful Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

What e beautiful and secluded private get away! We had friends vacationing in Ft. Myers, and decided to join them. What an amazingly beautiful spot we were so lucky to stumble across! Not only was our unit above and beyond what we expected, the owner, Rhonda, was so incredibly kind also. If you've never been, you must!! We loved every minute of our trip. Thank you, Rhonda, for sharing this gorgeous escape for us. It was fantastic!

This was my 3rd year to vacation here. I enjoy the freedom of coming and going when and how I please. Needed stores are close and reasonable plus there is plenty of shopping and eating places to visit. I plan on visiting year after year. Great place.

Property is a work in progress, unfortunate for us

  • 1 of 5

We were told we were booked in the Sunset unit but after looking at the photos we find we were actually in the Starfish? We really wanted to like this property and wanted to give the owner the benefit of the doubt, but there were so many things wrong with it - things we also feel were misrepresented in the photos and description. While we notified the owner immediately of tv in bedroom not working and no kitchen linens/towels at all (which I think was on purpose) - the owner responded and corrected about 4 hours later - there was no sense in asking for things to be fixed that were not immediately fixable. The "soap dish" in the shower was 2 pieces of rough-cut slate ducktaped to the wall! Ceiling tiles throughout the unit were cracked, ceiling fan in the bedroom looked and sounded like it would fall off the ceiling if turned on, holes in the wall where a tv was replaced. "Recently remodeled and professionally decorated?" The curtains in the bedroom were actually bedsheets... Couch and loveseat with springs/cushions that sunk almost to the floor when you sat on them (and the living room furniture isnt even the stuff shown in the photos). "8 foot sliding doors" -- they were so heavy and did not slide properly, we had a hard time pushing them open. Future renters should also be aware ... upon booking and paying, we received an email from the owner stating "We are a vacation rental not a hotel so we supply enough consumables for the first night (toilet paper, dish soap)". And they meant it ... one roll of flimsyTP, one teeny bar of soap, two beach towels with holes in them, a kitchen with bare essentials including a coffeepot that was so old it took 20 minutes to brew, a 2" showerhead stuck to the ceiling posing as a rainshower... we could go on. Only thing listed accurately was the nice bedsheets.

We understand this is a business for the owner, but really? This property needs some fixing, and your Welcome email made us feel anything but. Photos and description should reflect what someone actually gets when they rent. We've been renting properties from HomeAway and VBRO for years now, and this was a new experience for us (a property that just wasnt what it was described as).

Owner's Response: We appreciate all reviews so that we can address any issues our guest feel are not up to par. We of course would much rather issues be addressed with us at the time the guest is here so we can address them immediately as we have spares of most items such as coffee pots, blenders, toasters etc and is a very simple replacement. Our goal is for every guest to have a great stay. We do try to give each guest the unit requested and most of the time we can, however if we have a current guest who wishes to extend their stay for a few days we always give them the option if its available which can mean that the next guest coming in is assigned to another unit. Both the Sunset and Starfish are mirror image (they are the same layout) but the furniture is not exact as each unit has a different "theme" If a guest is not happy with a unit we do express our desire to know if there is anything we can do for them and I do personally meet each guest and check them into the unit. We did have an issue with the TV in this unit and had to install our standby TV (which was a bit smaller and you could see the holes from the prior larger TV) Comcast was called to reprogram the new TV and unfortunately it took them 4 hours to get the technician to get it completed. I was grateful it was only 4 hours as we have had to wait sometimes several days to get them onsite. I do understand as a guest it was an aggravation and apologize for such. These types of issues are out of our control but we do our best to deal with them in a timely manner. The temp TV has since been replaced with the correct size and is visually pleasing. Our furnishing and curtains are updated on a regular basis. We do have curtain liners that are white for those who like to have filtered light in the unit but the curtains themselves are blackout for those who prefer a darker bedroom. We try to accommodate all types of preferences for our units. The bathroom recently underwent a remodel and a nice walk in shower was installed. We had granite corner shelves cut for this bathroom and have been unable to install the shelving as it has been booked solid. It takes a good 24 hours to install the base and let it dry prior to putting the shelves on. When we were informed our current guest wanted to extend their stay the arriving guest had to be reassigned to this unit. When I informed the guest that the shelving was not completed I was assured it was not an issue and was OK.
