About Susan Mokry
Greetings from Mark and Susan, currently residing in Chicago, IL! Mark has been a Chicago Police Officer for the past 27 years, and I have worked as a teacher for 15 years and now as an Asst Principal for nine years. Since our first trip to Ft. Myers about eight years, we knew we wanted our own place for family getaways, holidays, and to escape the cold winter months.
Susan Mokry purchased this House in 2016
Why Susan Mokry chose Iona
The location of this home in addition to the neighborhood were all positives for us. Bike ride to beaches, quick drive to all shopping and daily errands, and the peacefulness of this neighborhood were exactly what we were looking for. The area is established and desirable and the neighborhood is very safe.
What makes this House unique
The lakefront view, sizable lot the house sits on and the location were great benefits to us.

Pros and Cons
Overall this property was very good for several reasons:
1. Location. The property location was perfect for us as it was very close to the sanibel causeway, FM beach, restaurants, grocery shopping, etc. Plus, our relatives lived very close.
2. Nice pool. Owner has pool checked on a weekly basis.
4. Easy to contact property manager.
5. Plenty of cooking and other kitchen utensils
1. We like to grill a lot when vacationing in FL. Grill was in bad shape and needs to be replaced.
2. Some of the pool furniture needs to be updated. Some of it is getting rusty due to FL salt air.
Overall, good place.
Neat as a pin home in a quiet friendly neighborhood. Was more like staying at a friend's place.
Close to beaches and Naples. Loved the pool and lake views.
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay!! Our home is close to many beaches and areas of interest, perfect for vacationers!!
good location easy access to all beaches and places
We stayed 14 days. Pool excellent. Accommodations nice. Needs a few more cooking items (pots & pans). A little sprucing up around pool area and some lounge chairs. It's rather difficult to lay out without them. Overall I would definitely stay again. I have already recommended to another friend. Owners easy to work with, answer emails promptly and their house manager was available when called.
Thank you for the great review!! We’re so happy you enjoyed your stay. Our rental is close to beaches, restaurants and attractions which makes it so nice when visiting Ft Myers area.
Very Comfortable Vacation Home
We very much enjoyed our 2 week stay at Casa Candlewood. The house is nicely decorated and has an open layout. The pool was enjoyable and the area has many birds, turtles etc. to add to the atmosphere. The neighborhood is very quiet and close to a nice beach. Property manager Kevin was available and responsive. We would recommend the home to others and hope to return ourselves.
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Please come back and visit us again!!
Thanks for the great review!!
The house is pretty much as advertised. The owner responded very quickly to any questions we had. the on site manager was prompt and easy to deal with. the house contained almost anything you might need. The fenced yard was perfect for our dog. The pool was very nice although we only used it once due to weather. The house is very centrally located for getting to Sanibel, Ft. Myers Beach and downtown Ft. Myers. Not sure if there are any fish in the lake. I found a lake nearby that I fished a couple times with good luck. Couple of small maintenance problems that did not effect our stay. We made the manager aware of them at the end of our stay. I would recommend this unit.
We’re so happy you enjoyed your stay and found the house well equipped with everything you need. The house is perfectly located to Ft. Myers Beach, Downtown Ft Myers and Sanibel Island. Thanks for the great review!!
Nice home. Would have been nice to have more serving dishes, teflon skillets and a baking pan.
Enjoyed the home and pool.
