About Lisa

We currently live in Massachusetts. After the long cold winter we had last year we decided it would be a great time to buy somewhere warm. Matt an I are so excited to offer our, new to the rental market, home to vacation renters like you. We have hand picked all the furniture, bedding and decorations in our home with your comfort in mind. There are books, games and cards for you to enjoy and beach chairs, a cooler and a beach bag for a trip to the beach. We hope you enjoy The Favorite Sun as much as we do. And remember...It's always sunny in Florida.

Lisa and Matt

Lisa purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Lisa chose Fort Myers

When we were looking for a home to buy a friend told us how much she loves the Fort Myers area. We flew down one weekend in April and fell in love with the area. The Favorite Sun was the first house that we saw and both Matt an I knew it was the one. The Favorite Sun had everything we were looking for, nice size bedrooms with full baths attached, a balcony looking over the pool area, two floors, peninsula in the kitchen, pool and location.

What makes this townhome unique

You can't beat the location! The best part is how close we are to the beach. We are 2.5 miles from the Sanibel Island Bridge and less then 10 miles to Fort Myers Beach. Sanibel Island offers the most beautiful beaches in the United States. People come from all over the world to visit these beaches to spend their vacation relaxing in the sun and taking advantage of all the area has to offer.

Amazing home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I booked Favorite Sun for a girls' weekend getaway. We arrived late in the evening due to delayed flight but both inside and outside of the property was lighted for our arrival. It was clean and the pictures were spot on in terms of layout and actual space.

We were about 10-15 mins from Fort Meyers Beach, where they happened to be having Pirate festival, and about 5 mins from the bridge to get to Sanibel Island. The beaches were amazing for fishing, jet skiing and especially shelling.

The property manager, Lisa, was knowledgeable and friendly when we asked for recommendations for some fun places to eat and just relax in the area. Favorite Sunday is in an ideal location as we didn't have to drive far to experience the Ft Meyers area. The sunsetsigns were amazing especially on Captiva Island.

We were sad to leave after a great weekend but the added touches of being in a home away from home with amazing parting mug and some great coffee which were provided; I would have to say we were planning to book our next trip down for next year.

I'd also recommend the Mucky Duck English pub on Captiva island for great food and an amazing sunset and the Tuckaway Cafe on Ft Meyers Beach for some great steamed bagel sandwiches and amazing waffles. Oh and if you couldn't get enough of their coffee, don't worry the Favorite Sun has provided you with a bag to enjoy on those early mornings gearing up for some fun adventures.

I'd highly recommend Favorite Sun for a long weekend getaway or a longer stay.

We can't wait for next year's trip!!!

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolute perfection. The details make it feel like home, from the spice rack in the kitchen, to the big thick towels in the bathrooms. Everything you could possibly want or need is right at your finger tips, along with recommendations from the owners and past guests about their favorite places in the area to visit. We were in the pool within minutes of our arrival, and enjoyed our stay until the very end. After your first stay, you'll be planning your next visit, I know I am!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at Matt and Lisa's home. Aside from being just a beautiful house, the location was perfect, and all the amenities and little extras just made the stay so much more relaxing and amazing. You can tell a lot of love and effort was put into the house and making it so comfortable, and not a thought was spared. We really appreciated that, and treated the house as we would our own. In addition, the location was JUST PERFECT! Literally minutes from Sanibel Island and the main drag of Fort Meyers Beach, stores and restaurants. The pool was pristine and soooo relaxing. My family and I had an amazing time here and would definitely return!!! Thank you both for sharing your home!!!!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

The Favorite Sun is my family's new favorite place. Anything and everything we could ever want in a vacation home is there. Lisa and Matt have thought of everything. The location is perfect as well. There were so many options with places to go, it was hard to choose where we wanted to go every day. We brought our 14 month old son and our dog so we were a little nervous about the trip. Once we arrived, having absolutely everything thought of for us was exactly what we needed. It was the most relaxing trip we have ever taken. We will definitely be coming back and referring all of our friends and family!

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I would first like to start off by saying thanks to Lisa and Matt for all the wonderful and last accommodations they provided my family and I. This place was exactly what we were looking for when my wife and I decided to travel with our two small children for the first time. The property has everything you could ask for including beach toys and a crock-pot, which enabled us to enjoy the beach or discover the area without having to worry about cooking in the evening or overspending by eating out. The rooms were spacious, clean, and nicely furnished. The bathrooms were also very clean, well-maintained, and equipped with essential toiletries. The layout of the downstairs is very functional with a half bathroom and laundry room conveniently located on the corner next to the dining room. The living room was very inviting, spacious, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The patio had a sliding patio door that leads into the kitchen, which made it very easy to cook and eat outside in the relaxing patio. The patio also is equipped a grill, which is basically new and works like a charm. Lastly, property is located next to the community pool, which is heated, clean regularly, and well-maintained. The pool was a real life-saver since our beach time was sometimes cut short with a passing rain storm or threat of afternoon storms.

As far as the location, this property is perfectly located between Fort Myers beach and Sanibel Island. There is also a nice little outlet mall barely five minutes away. Grocery stores, gas stations, and Walmart are all very close in proximity as well. Since my wife and I had never travel to the gulf side of Florida, this place was ideal for us as we ventured the Fort Myers area, even into Cape Coral and down to Naples as well.

All-in-all, my wife and I were very pleased with this property, the accommodations are top-notch, and the owners provided prompt and excellent hospitality. Their recommendation to local restaurants were great and Lisa's guide to the beaches were very helpful. My wife and I would definitely return and would highly recommend this place to anybody travelling to the Fort Myers area.
