About Owner

Having arrived on the beach in 1990, we fell in love with the beach and have been coming back for over 20 years to enjoy with our family and friends. We have enjoyed raising our daughters on the beautiful white sands, as our island getaways from our MN home are something we look forward to many times throughout the year. Sunny Daze is truly a 'Paradise Getaway' for our family and all who stay!

Owner purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Owner chose Fort Myers Beach

After looking at many properties on the island, we knew we the north end of the beach was where we wanted to be because of its ease of access from the main land, less peak season traffic and is the perfect location offering stress free beach escapes, beautiful sunsets, awesome white sands and the feel of true island life...Finding Sunny Daze was the perfect answer to our island dreams!

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location...a short beach walk to the activity of Time Square with it's exciting shops, great dining and incredible life, yet just far enough away from the beach crowds and traffic to offer that true escape to Paradise! We are constantly updating the Sunny Daze to assure all of our guests the beauty and security of our beautiful beach house will be waiting for them when they arrive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good Morning! I just wanted to drop a line or two to let you know how wonderful your cottage here is. It's beautiful! Your pictures on the walls all tell a stories about how wonderful you and your family are for sharing your cottage with others. We have enjoyed every moment. The beach is breath taking. We walk it everyday. We can't say enough about you place, area, etc..

Thank you for sharing it with Tom and I and our family, which being the first time seeing the ocean they LOVED IT!!

God Bless all of you! Happy New Years!

Great place to stay, couldn't ask for a better owner to rent from.

  • 5 of 5

Great owner, great location, steps to the Ocean, very neat and tidy, just felt like home from the moment we walked in, the house had everything we needed, Tiki Bar, chairs, umbrellas, fully stocked kitchen, washer, dryers , beds and furniture was up to date and comfortable.Couldn't ask for a better owner to rent from. Plan on coming back next year.

I was very sad leaving this rental home, actually felt like I was leaving my own personal home.💕𵐽򓘍. I actually cried when we left.

Owner Dave was great to rent from, just a great guy.

Thanks Dave for sharing your home with us, love the journals also to share our memories.Bought and left a new one.

Wondeful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we knew we were going to enjoy our stay here. The home had more than plenty of room. My mother and sister stayed in the room with the queen bed which had plenty of room for yet an extra person, while my 11 year old son and I stayed in the room with the two twin beds. Both rooms were very nice size rooms. I was very happy about that. The kitchen was very well stocked with pretty much everything you would need. I could tell most quest would leave extra supplies they had left over, as we did as well, for other guests use so that was very helpful and appreciated. Décor made our stay feel very comfortable and at home. I was afraid it was going to be to hot for this time of the year but I found that early morning and around 6:30 at night we still had a nice breeze and walking on the practically deserted beach made us feel as if we had a private beach all to ourselves even during the day. It was wonderful. My son found his first sand dollars and saw his first horshoe crab on the beach which you rarely see any more. Already making plans to try and return next year! Thank you Dave for a wonderful stay!

Girls Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with the Sunny Daze beach house. It was everything we expected. It was very clean when we arrived and very spacious with plenty of room for five people. It was a quick walk to the beach and 10 minute walk to Times Square. Loved the restaurants and plenty of stores to shop at. The sunsets were beautiful! Dave was very helpful when needed. The only disappointment was the algae in the ocean but we still had a great time.

Owner's Response: Tracy, Thank you for your great comments about Sunny Daze! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The algae issue was short lived, and is a rare occasion, but so glad you were able to enjoy all of the other exciting amenities the island has to offer... Thank you again!

SUNNY DAZE a "STAR"fish GEM of Fort Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

No one will be disappointed in renting this property, and after staying here you will know why. The house is spacious, well maintained, and within 50 - 60 steps of the sand. We took advantage of playing dominoes in the Tiki Bar area, being careful not to disturb the dove nesting on a beam over the light fixture. The weather was perfect for our shelling expeditions. Sunsets, WOW!!! Were picture perfect (if only I can find where I put those in my computer!). Time Square is walking distance from the house with lots of places to shop, eat, drink and be merry. We left a business card on the bulletin board, MOM"S where everything you eat & drink is homemade, try their "yellow" watermelon from their farm. Great place for breakfast to get you moving for the day. Thanks Dave for your great customer service, and patience in answering all my questions. I'm hoping when I re-rent 2017 the dates are available.

Thanks again.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this lovely cottage. Nice and close to Time Square and close walk to the beach. The cottage was clean and met all our needs, my husband loved the out door shower. We hope to be back again soon. Thank you for an awesome vacation.
