Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for eight days while on our own house-hunting trip, and it was perfect! Comfortable, clean, centrally located, and fairly priced. We spent all of our time when not looking at real estate at Sandalwood's beautiful pool, which is just a few steps away from this unit. The neighbors were all nice and friendly, even to us short-term renters! The owner left some restaurant recommendations of which we selected two during our visit, and they were excellent. In fact, the owner was so personable and caring to our needs, that we'll probably be friends after we move to our own place nearby!

Excellent price performer

  • 4 of 5

I've been using VRBO for the last 6 years. Many reviews are not honest -- THIS ONE IS. Very nice place, just steps away from the pool, clean and in good maintenance. Every place you ever stay will have minor problems. Rudi was very responsive to any issues and resolved everything immediately. This property is nicely located -- just off the lower Cape Coral bridge but still in easy driving to Sanibel Island and/or Ft Myers Beach. Traffic hint: Go to Ft Myers Beach by 8 AM for breakfast at "The Cottage Beach Bar". And make sure when you go to Sanibel Island leave for home before 2 PM. If you're into golfing, try Whiskey Creek which is just a couple of miles away. There are a few nice restaurants in walking distance.

Great Stay at beautiful townhouse

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 1 week in Jan 2016 with my husband and 19 year old son. The townhouse is beautifully appointed with light colored furniture, with Dolphin and Beach themes running through-out. Open concept kitchen, living room & dining room were very comfortable. Bright open kitchen with laundry was well equipped and convenient. Comfortable main floor soaker tub and just steps away from the community pool and jacuzzi. The owner was very attentive to our needs and accommodated us when we needed to come a day early. I would recommend this property highly.

A great place to stay while exploring the area

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 11 nights over Christmas break with my husband and 4-year old son. It is in a quiet, gated community close to the beaches, shopping, restaurants etc. We liked the layout of the townhouse because we put our son to bed in the upstairs bedroom and then we were able to hang out downstairs and not have him wake up by the sound of the TV. The house was clean and full of amenities for us to use. We used the washer and dryer to do laundry a couple of times (we used lots of beach towels). We used the drink cooler to keep our drinks/snacks cool. There is a nice large closet downstairs where we hung our swimwear and towels to dry. We went to the pool and spa/whirlpool every morning and liked how close it was to the townhouse. We ate breakfast at home every morning and cooked dinner there a couple of times. The kitchen had what we needed to make basic meals (eggs, pancakes, potatoes, pasta, etc.) The downstairs bathroom has a nice, large tub which made it easy to help bathe my son. We used the TV and Wifi daily and both worked fine. The couches and other furniture was comfortable and there was sufficient seating for us in the living room and dining room. There is a designated parking spot so parking was easy and close to the townhouse. I would recommend this place to other families visiting the area because it is clean and spacious. The owner is also great to work with. He called the day after we arrived to make sure everything was ok. I would return here because it's a great place to start your day and relax after a fun-filled day in beautiful Fort Myers.

Great Spot

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice, clean house with a comfortable setup. We happened to meet the owner and he is a great guy. Easy access in and out. We spent several days at the swimming pool just sunbathing and it was quiet there. Very relaxing.
