About Dave or Jane McLachlan

My wife and I purchased our first house in Beachwalk Isles in 2009, and with the downturn in the real estate market, decided to 'rescue' another house in Beachwalk in 2010. This second house is our rental home that we call 'Sparkling Waters', because of the way the sun shimmers on the south facing lake.

Dave or Jane McLachlan purchased this house in 2010

Why Dave or Jane McLachlan chose Fort Myers

The house was built in 2002 and was completely remodeled in 2010. We originally used a property manager, but found that we could market the property better on our own. We have enjoyed giving a more personal experience for our guests!

Great situation and beautifully maintained home.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Sparkling Waters in Fort Myers. Everything was as described and as we expected although we struggled with, for us, the high tec TV/music equipment. The villa is really well equipped and well designed and the pool deck and outlook are outstanding. Would love to visit again. The one problem that we had Dave attended to within 24 hours.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic 8 nights in Sparkling Waters. Maria met us on arrival and the house exceeded our expectations and was spotless. As well as being in a great position, the house contained everything we could possibly need. The local wildlife didn't disappoint us either as we had daily sightings on the lake at the back of the house of the alligator/s, herons, Ospreys, egrets, etc along with something we have now identified as being a long nosed soft shell turtle!!!

A visit to the J.N."Ding"Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel Island is a must. It costs just €5 per car to enter the 4 mile Wildlife Drive (closed on Fridays) and there is an abundance of wildlife to be seen (low tide is best). The Visitor Information centre is great and you can also buy tram tour tickets from here should you want a more informed tour of the Wildlife Drive (tickets approx €15 per adult).

Going slightly further afield to Everglades City we highly recommend the Everglades National Park Mangrove Boat Tour (again best at low tide) bookable on the National Park website or on arrival. It costs €45 per adult and €23 per child. DON'T FORGET YOUR MOZZIE SPRAY!!!!

Fabulous local beaches can be found on Sanibel Island, Captiva Island and Fort Myers Beach. Parking is anything from €2-€4 per hour and can be paid by card or in cash.

Walmart and Target supermarkets are very reasonable and local and for those looking for a bargain there's the Sanibel Outlet Mall nearby or Miromar Outlets approx 30 mins away.

We had a fantastic celebratory meal and the odd cocktail or two at Doc Ford's Rum Shack on Sanibel island (they're also on Captiva Island and Fort Myers Beach). We also enjoyed a very reasonable meal at Mel's Diner in downtown Fort Myers.

Thank you Dave and Jane for letting us rent your wonderful house, we hope to return and will definitely be recommending Sparkling Waters to our friends and family.

Viv and Kerry Mahoney.

Karen, Adrian and Leah Blake.

Beautiful house in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year we've stayed here (and the 5th year in the development) and we didn't want to leave.

The house is beautiful, very well equipped with the lovely Maria available if there are ever any issues. The pool is a good size and views over the lake are great (watch out for the 'gator !)

All in all, a perfect place to stay...very clean and well-maintained...in a fantastic location with Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and shopping just minutes away.

Our home away from Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Fort Myers the first time we were there.We love the house. its all it said it would be. In excellent condition. plenty of amenities including the pool and a gas Bar,which we really enjoyed. We find it close to the beaches and water Lots of shopping and great restaurants nearby.A newly renovated main bathroom this year since last, only makes the house more like home.

Dave and Jane (the owners) live in the community and are very nice and friendly. They gave us good info on restaurants and things to do in the area.

I would definitely recommend this property to my friends .
