This is me with my one and only grand baby. I moved to Fort Myers Beach after hurricane Charley. I am an independent insurance adjuster by trade so I knew I would be deployed here for 2-3 years. I found this property and purchased it. After years of remodeling it is now our island hideaway. We have made each unit with the comforts of home and extend and invitation for you to come and stay with us to enjoy your home away from home : )
Rhonda purchased this apartment in 2004
This property is located mid island in a very quiet residential neighboor hood. Walk less than 2 minutes to the beach. New pool, spa and social fire pit area to enjoy. There are 7 individual very private and very quiet suites.
King pillow top beds with luxury linens used at the Ritz Carlton. Very quiet and relaxing.
My wife and I had booked the hide away a year before we arrived... we did read reviews over that year and were a little scared.... but when we arrived we were blown away by how amazingly beautiful all 7 properties were cleaned and decorated. We held our wedding reception at the house which was PERFECT..... I hope we make the hide away web page with the pics. The pool area was exactly what you want on vacation, just a place to relax and great conversations with friends and family... in all my wife and I and our 45 guest we very happy with the out come of the hide away.... its a very beautiful place, I recommend to all.....

What e beautiful and secluded private get away! We had friends vacationing in Ft. Myers, and decided to join them. What an amazingly beautiful spot we were so lucky to stumble across! Not only was our unit above and beyond what we expected, the owner, Rhonda, was so incredibly kind also. If you've never been, you must!! We loved every minute of our trip. Thank you, Rhonda, for sharing this gorgeous escape for us. It was fantastic!
This was my 3rd year to vacation here. I enjoy the freedom of coming and going when and how I please. Needed stores are close and reasonable plus there is plenty of shopping and eating places to visit. I plan on visiting year after year. Great place.
Just a great place to stay, close to the beach, the rental home is beautiful and with anything you could want is there. We love going and just relaxing. Beautiful plants and flowers, great pool in the back yard. We love it soo much we keep going back. The owners are wonderful people and will help with anyting you might need to know about the rental and the island. Fantastic beaches very soft pretty sand. You will not regret staying here, you will be like me and go back year after year.
We were told we were booked in the Sunset unit but after looking at the photos we find we were actually in the Starfish? We really wanted to like this property and wanted to give the owner the benefit of the doubt, but there were so many things wrong with it - things we also feel were misrepresented in the photos and description. While we notified the owner immediately of tv in bedroom not working and no kitchen linens/towels at all (which I think was on purpose) - the owner responded and corrected about 4 hours later - there was no sense in asking for things to be fixed that were not immediately fixable. The "soap dish" in the shower was 2 pieces of rough-cut slate ducktaped to the wall! Ceiling tiles throughout the unit were cracked, ceiling fan in the bedroom looked and sounded like it would fall off the ceiling if turned on, holes in the wall where a tv was replaced. "Recently remodeled and professionally decorated?" The curtains in the bedroom were actually bedsheets... Couch and loveseat with springs/cushions that sunk almost to the floor when you sat on them (and the living room furniture isnt even the stuff shown in the photos). "8 foot sliding doors" -- they were so heavy and did not slide properly, we had a hard time pushing them open. Future renters should also be aware ... upon booking and paying, we received an email from the owner stating "We are a vacation rental not a hotel so we supply enough consumables for the first night (toilet paper, dish soap)". And they meant it ... one roll of flimsyTP, one teeny bar of soap, two beach towels with holes in them, a kitchen with bare essentials including a coffeepot that was so old it took 20 minutes to brew, a 2" showerhead stuck to the ceiling posing as a rainshower... we could go on. Only thing listed accurately was the nice bedsheets.
We understand this is a business for the owner, but really? This property needs some fixing, and your Welcome email made us feel anything but. Photos and description should reflect what someone actually gets when they rent. We've been renting properties from HomeAway and VBRO for years now, and this was a new experience for us (a property that just wasnt what it was described as).
We stayed in the sandcastle suite with our 3 children. Everything was very clean and upgraded. Furnishing and linens were top line. Very comfortable for our family. Owners were very accommodating and we had a great time meeting them.,
We are on Estero Island now renamed Fort Myers Beach, just a few short steps to the white sugar sand beach down our private beach access. There is trolly service at the end of our street for .50 cents that will take you to time square or any of the local restraunts, grocery stores or shopping. There are several shops and restraunts within walking distance. There is fishing, swimming, shelling, golfing, kayaking, bicyling, bowling, spas, theaters, movies and pretty much anything else you would like within our area.
Other Activities: shopping, boating, wildlife viewing, miniature golf, kayaking, parasailing, basketball
