It was very clean, bright and perfect for what we needed for our 3 night stay. .
My husband and I enjoyed our stay. Very clean and perfect for two. The bed is not a king as expected, a queen , but comfortable. Times Square is trolley accessible. The beach is right across the street. Unfortunately when we were there road construction was right in front of the property. We walked 3 blocks to cross, While we were there was a small issue with the pool and the door knob but called and was taken care of right away. Would definitely recommend this property!
Very nice condo, just minutes from the beach in Fy. Myers.
What we loved:
-Cleanliness and amenities were exactly as advertised - this has been recently updated, and everything in it still feels very new. Really appreciated included beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, pool toys.
-Proximity to the beach - easy two block walk to public beach access.
-Response and availability of owner - very easy to reach, arranged for early check in without issue.
-The pool was a great amenity - so nice to have it literally right outside our front door.
-Really strong A/C - was great to have reliable A/C when coming in from the hot sun!
Things to be aware of:
(These are not necessarily things that would prevent me from recommending this property or staying here again - we definitely would - just some things to consider if you are looking at this property.)
-Lots of construction happening on Estero Blvd during our stay - noise actually wasn't a factor at all, it just made what would otherwise be a very walkable area somewhat less walkable as many sidewalks were closed. Looks like it will be very nice once it's completed!
-The overview of this property on VRBO says there is a king bed - there isn't. I didn't realize this until after I booked and while this is usually a deciding factor for my wife and I (we just don't sleep well on queen beds), we went with it anyway. I made the owner aware of this, but as of this review, it hasn't been changed, so just something to be aware of if that's important to you.
-Front door is a little finicky - some of the buttons on the keypad don't respond as well as others, and the door takes a little work to get closed all the way.
-We had mixed results using the washer and dryer - one load was still completely soaked after a spin in the washer.
-We had more cold showers than hot. We were only able to get hot water in the shower twice during our five night stay. Fortunately, cold showers were somewhat comfortable for us after getting a little sunburned on day 1, so we didn't bother bringing it up to the owner during our stay - if we had, I'm sure he would have addressed it.
Again, none of these items made a significant negative impact on our stay - we would definitely consider staying here again and recommend to others!
Perfect location !
The cottage was exactly as described. It was the best location on the island and just a short walk to the beach. We had beach chairs, beach towels and coolers waiting for us upon our arrival. Times Square was easy to navigate by walking, driving or taking the trolley. The pool was warm, clean and delightful. Barry was kind enough to arrange an early check in and later check out for us. Should we ever return to Fort Myers Beach, we will definitely stay here again.
Very clean and cozy!
Had a great time, property and pool were great! Very close to beach access, 3 min walk. Supplied everything that we needed.
Little Oak Cottage
This is a terrific little cottage. It is obvious that the owners’ have gone the “extra mile” to make this a very special place. Also great location for walks to the Village and surrounding sites.
Great for what we needed
My son and I stayed here in Oct 17 while in town for a baseball tourney. Since we had been to the FT Myers area several times before we knew the location would be great. The unit was clean & had everything we needed; it is small but fit our needs.
There were a few glitches during our stay but the property manager was easy to reach and accommodating. We would stay here again.
Fort Myers Beach sits on Estero Island, a seven-mile coastline that has captivated the imaginations of visitors from near and far. Add family-friendly resorts, quaint cottages, Old Florida charm, fresh seafood from the Gulf of Mexico and the annual Shrimp Festival, and it's a beach vacation paradise. Explore truly wild surroundings at Lovers Key State Park with a refreshing bike ride or a hike flanked by broadleaf forest. Try fishing in quiet waterways or kayaking alongside gentle manatees. Drive up Estero Island and across to San Carlos Island for a closer look at the boats of the local Shrimp Fleet. For lunch, stop at Smokin’ Oyster Brewery, and relish the mouthwatering seafood and intriguing memorabilia. Later, settle in at the Outrigger Beach Resort’s Tiki Bar or atop The Beached Whale for front-row seats of the sunset. End the day by unwinding under the stars at Times Square, a pedestrian-friendly shopping and dining area.
