Great vacation house! on a canal that turned out to be quite nice, 5 minute walk to beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome! Well supplied, 9 moms stayed there. Need a car to get groceries probably but the beach was just a short 5 minute walk, a 7/11 is right there, grocery stores right down the road in either direction, Junkanoos restaurant in walking distance and it's on the beach and fun. The pool was GREAT! Lots of pool toys and chairs. Morning coffee on the deck. Nice neighbors but you can't be too loud..lol. So glad we had the Canadian connection! We'd go back in a heartbeat!

Thanksgiving on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We had a most wonderful stay! We had been trying to get the kids and grandkids all together for a vacation. This was perfect. Clean and well maintained. Plenty of room for everyone, 6 adults and 2 little ones. The owner, Ian is wonderful. The neighbor was very nice and welcomed the first arrivals.

The location is perfect and we enjoyed the short walk to the beach. The pool was perfect too! Everything we needed was there.

A door on the loft room would offer privacy to whoever slept there. The downstairs being separate without access to the upstairs was different and could benefit from containing a full bath.

We had a wonderful time and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Ft. Myers for 17 years and have always stayed with family. This is the first time that we decided to take a chance and rent a house since we were going to have our grown children and their spouses staying with us. We were 7 adults ranging from 63 to 20 years of age. So glad that we took the chance. The house is perfect. True to description. Spacious, clean, updated and filled with all the amenities that you could possibly need. It is conveniently located in regards to food shopping (Publix down the street)restaurants, the beach and night life. The Junkanoo on Estero provided many great lunches and libations as well as a beautiful clean beach and an upscale restaurant for dinner in the Fresh Catch Bistro. Don't like the beach then the pool is the perfect place for plenty of sun and peaceful relaxation and there is shade if it gets to be too much. It is well maintained and equipped with enough lounge chairs for everyone. So if you are looking for a peaceful paradise then this is the rental for you. Thanks Ian and Susan for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

Fun in the Sun in Ft Myers

  • 5 of 5

We have rented homes in Florida for Spring Break for the past 8 years. This house was by far the BEST home we have rented. IT has all of the amenities listed ..... AND the location is perfect. You are a walk from the beach and all of the action. The house is completely outfitted with 2 Masters, a loft and a separate living suite that leads out to the pool deck. Having stayed in several rental homes, I want to clarify....this is not a typical rental...this is a personal residence. We even had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Ian. He took us on a quick tour of the home and made mention of the bikes and the canoe that were available for us to use. True Story: One morning our kids were in the canoe in the canal and started yelling, FIN!! SHARK!!! No it was not JAWS, but we were pleasantly surprised to see a playful dolphin swimming up the canal. We are from Michigan so we were coming to escape the winter vortex and drown ourselves in Vitamin D. And yes the sun did shine! The pool deck is perfectly arranged to get all the rays the entire day long. Our kids are 15, 12, and 10 and they enjoyed parasailing volleyball, and long boarding to the beach. The adults enjoyed hanging out at the local bar called the Beach Pub. Great hospitality and live music right on the beach. We recommend this home for anyone that is looking to "put their toes in the water, bum in the sand...Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in their hand, Life is good today, life is good today" :) YOu wont regeret it, call Ian today!!

AMAZING vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Whenever we go on vacation for a week, we prefer to rent a private home. Out of all the homes that we have rented in various vacation spots, this was one of the best. The house was clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and absolutely perfect for our three generation family. Our in laws and my parents stayed in the two master bedrooms on the main level, my younger brother stayed in the loft area, and my husband, myself and our two little ones stayed in the private downstairs suite. The downstairs suite has a private bedroom and a separate living room area where our two children slept. The pool was absolutely gorgeous and heated to a perfect temperature. We fished in the canal as well as used the canoe that was made available to us. I was absolutely amazed at the amenities that were available for our use: laundry detergent, dryer sheets, etc. We replaced what we used so that others could benefit from them as well. Ian was the most gracious host, always quick with a response or reply to any of our questions. We have already recommended this place to our friends and their families. Thanks for an awesome vacation Ian.
