NEW FOR 2016-2017 SEASON: We did a mini Lanai Makeover. We replaced the large bar and replaced it with a beautiful granite walk-up bar creating more space and function. The furniture has all been reupholstered with a fun nautical theme. There is new bistro dining inside the lanai for awesome relaxing pool views. We have replaced carpets and improved the lightening keeping everything fresh and clean. I think you will enjoy the new Xfinity X1 TV with voice command and even faster internet.
My husband and I were visiting family and wanted to be nearby. This home was a perfect location for our needs. And being pet friendly, it was perfect for our extended 6 week visit with pets. We didn't need the 4 bedrooms, which, I must say were marvelous, oversized beds and beautifully decorated, as was the entire home. It is bigger than it looks from the front, and the expansive kitchen was the hub of our activities, with the huge granite topped island and the equally as huge TV. All in all there were 4 TV's, one out on the pool deck, which was also beautifully equipped with nice furniture, comfortable--nice for napping in front of the TV in the shade beside the pool. You can see in the pix how lovely the back yard is. And the hidden outside shower is so well hidden, I had to ask where it was! So if that's your thing, after a swim, you'll sure be secluded from prying eyes. Master is very big with a lovely, large shower. The neighborhood is an established one, and me, being a late evening walker for exercise, I ambled around the night neighborhood lanes feeling perfectly safe. The location is also very near a lot of shops, grocery shopping, drug stores and eateries. Also, there are so many choices of dishes and small appliances, it's almost funny. When my hubby decided he didn't like toasting bread in a toaster oven, he found a toaster on one of the cabinets. There are several types of coffee makers, all kinds of utensils. Bountiful dishes. Nice key rings with garage door openers to keep you from having to get out and open and closing the garage. All sorts of ways to make your life easy on your vacation. I would highly recommend this home for a vacation getaway in Fort Myers!
We booked a last minute spring break trip with our kids and it ended up being the perfect family vacation! The home is excellent--very clean, well-appointed and furnished. Sandra and Jim have thought of everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. You'll find it all here, from all types of glassware (plastic ware for the lanai/pool) and kitchen utensils, to beach chairs and umbrellas. Our family loved relaxing on the lanai, swimming in the very nice pool and especially enjoying the private outdoor shower! PRIVATE OUTDOOR SHOWER! The backyard is beautifully landscaped and transports you to a paradise setting so you completely forget you're in a suburb. The home is located in a nice neighborhood with access to one of the main streets in Fort Myers, which can take you directly to Fort Myers Beach or Sanibel Island. Plan on 20-40 minutes to get to the beach, depending on spring break traffic. Our kids enjoyed the beach, but also couldn't wait to get back to the private pool and relaxing lanai area. Restaurants, grocery stores and other amenities are close by.
Sandra was excellent to work with as she e-mailed great day trip ideas and went out of her way to accommodate our travel schedule. I really can't say enough good things about working with her and her overall customer service. Our stay at Whiskey Creek ended up being one of our best vacations yet and I would highly recommend staying in this home. We look forward to returning in the future!
We spent January 2016 at Whiskey Creek and I can honestly say we could not have found a better rental. This house is very well appointed, comfortable and private. Sandra and Jim really have gone the extra mile providing everything you could possibly need or want to make your vacation extra special. The house is located in a very quiet, safe suburb which is attractive itself with gorgeous homes and landscaping. It is very conveniently located with groceries, restaurants, nature trails, Barbara B Mann theatre and more with in a short distance. Honestly though you will not want to leave home too much because the covered patio with an enclosed pool is just too comfortable, fun and private. The lush backyard plantings are a gorgeous backdrop to the pool area. At night the pool area is transformed into a very romantic atmosphere with many automatic lights and candles. The beds are unbelievably comfortable as are all of the tasteful furnishings. We had a very relaxing, enjoyable stay and look forward to returning in the future.
Our family celebrated a special, multi-generational Christmas at this lovely, beautifully decorated and well appointed home - " Paradise at Whiskey Creek". The title fits!
Our hosts provided every detail to make this family time very special. There were even birthday candles tucked away in a drawer that were used when ours were forgotten, to celebrate a special birthday. We enjoyed fresh mango graciously left for us in the freezer and transformed in the Ninja into smoothies by our 20 something daughters. Thank you! Everything, including the well equipped kitchen, lovely china and beautiful wine glasses, helped make our Christmas dinner festive and memorable. We spent most of our time relaxing in the evenings in the lanai, enjoying the twinkling lights, lovely garden and beautiful pool. Everyone, even our elderly mother and young adult daughters enjoyed the outdoor shower. What a treat! The granite kitchen island, large living room, spacious master suite, dining room and outdoor spaces were well used and appreciated. The outdoor grill area provided our designated chef with many opportunities to prepare delights for our entire group.
We enjoyed the home's proximity to many tourist sites, downtown Fort Myers, Sanibel Island and area beaches. The Edison Ford Estates Festival Nights was enjoyed by our entire family! Thank you to our hosts for the detailed information provided on local attractions. At the end of each day, everyone enjoyed a great sleep because the beds and linens are fantastic!!!
Santa really delivered this Christmas! Put this one on your Christmas list!
What a wonderful spring break we had in Whiskey Creek. The kitchen was much better stocked than my own kitchen and a joy to cook in. The pool/lanai was our morning and afternoon hangout to take advantage of the sun and then to escape to the shade when the sun got to be a bit much. The pool was delightful and the surrounding gardens made it feel like home. The bedrooms were luxuriously appointed with beautiful beds, sumptuous mattresses and fine linens. The garage was stocked with everything you would need at the beach including chairs, umbrellas, toys and beachbags, and two bicycles. And everything was so close. We used the Fort Myers beach and the Sanibel beaches and they were painless to get to and to park at. The sunsets were wonderful. Groceries and pharmacy and Target close by. We recommend Paradise at Whiskey Creek highly. You will not be disappointed.
We have had such a wonderful time here. The owners have gone above and beyond to make this home comfortable and welcoming. It hits all the high points, very clean, wonderful kitchen, outdoor/indoor living areas, outdoor shower and oh yes... the "beds"! Suggestions on the area were very welcome. Loved it so much, hitting the repeat button.
The house is ideally situated right off the main coastal street of McGregor Boulevard which runs parallel to the Caloosahatchee River in a peaceful and quiet setting right beside the Whiskey Creek Country Club. Just a short drive from Southwest Florida International Airport and the beautiful beaches of Sanibel/Captiva and Fort Myers Beach. If you like to eat out, most restaurants are just 5 minutes as well as conveniences, banks, groceries, movie theaters and entertainment. The Barbara Mann Performing Arts Hall has fabulous Broadway-style shows and the famous Edison & Ford Winter Estates are both just a short drive away. The nature lover will adore this house, I am an avid birdwatcher and everyday the tropical backyard garden is just singing with beautiful birds and many, many butterflies. The tropical garden surrounding the house is lush and full of beautiful flowers. We have Royal Palm trees, a huge mango (delicious fruit is available for picking all summer) and a small fig tree too. Also, the famous J.N. Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Lakes Park are both very close by for nature lovers and family fun.
