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 Iona

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kurzform: Alles bestens! Haus in einwandfreiem Zustand. Im Haus alles vollständig, sauber und gepflegt. Nun für jene, die auch mal etwas mehr lesen wollen: Wir haben das Haus Anfang 2016 für November 2016 gebucht. Die Kontaktaufnahme, Zusage, Zahlungsabwicklung etc. haben völlig problemlos geklappt. Über facebook und die Homepage waren wir um Vorfeld stets über alle Entwicklungen vor Ort informiert und konnten uns auch schon ein recht konkretes Bild von der Umgebung und der dortigen Sehenswürdigkeiten machen. Ca. 14 Tage vor Ankunft erhielten wir eine Email mit der Adresse sowie den Zugangsdaten zum Haus. Alles perfekt organisiert, inkl. Parkplatz vor dem Haus. Das Haus selbst ist in einwandfreiem Zustand und entspricht den Bildern im Internet. Oben befinden sich zwei Schlafzimmer, jeweils mit eigener Dusche und Toilette, unten ein großer Wohn- und Essraum mit kompletter Einbauküche. Des Weiteren eine Gästetoilette. Die Einrichtung mit Kühl- und Gefrierkombi, Herd, Ofen, Mikrowelle, Kaffemaschine, Geschirrspüler, Waschmaschine, Trockner (ich hoffe, dass ich nichts vergessen habe) ist absolut vollständig. Geschirr und Besteck sind ausreichend vorhanden , ebenso Bettzeug und Handtücher. Wlan funktioniert natürlich auch einwandfrei und ist sogar recht flott. Auf der Terrasse befindet sich ein großer Gasgrill, auf dem wir oft und gerne gegrillt haben, was besonders wichtig ist, da Restaurants und gutes Essen nicht unbedingt die Stärke der Amerikaner sind. In unmittelbarer Nähe befinden sich diverse Supermärkte und ein kleines, aber feines Outlet-Center. Ach ja, und noch das Wichtigste: Hat man mal eine kleine Frage, reicht eine kurze Email an Lisa und man bekommt in kürzester Zeit Hilfe. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, nichts vermisst und können "Favorite Sun" uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

Cozy, well equipped and inviting

  • 5 of 5

We really felt like at home - everything for daily life with three kids was there (a washing machine and a tumble dryer can be gold worth when travelling with toddlers :-)).

We spent a lot of time at the nearby beaches and had fun in the pool.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

The Ojeda's loved it... will definitely recommend and will be back!

Lisa & Matt,

You have a beautiful home in a prime and quiet location. We really enjoyed Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel & Captiva Island... especially Chewie and Nibbles (my furry kids)! Our last day we rented a boat at Cape Coral and enjoyed beach hoping... which brought the term "beach bums" to a whole new level. Thus far, this was one of the most pet friendly road trip destination we've taken as a family. Impressed with the dog friendly beaches and restaurants in Sanibel Island.

Thank you for Having us!

The Ojeda's

Fabulous place to stay close to all of the best beaches.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four and small pup enjoyed our stay here very much. Very clean. Every thing you could ever need has been thought of. The owners Lisa and Matt are very responsive for any needs during stay. So close to lots of beaches and we tried them all ;) Would highly recommend staying in this fabulous condo. The complex itself is small and quiet too, with zero neighbor noise or nearby traffic. Yet location is amazing. We loved our stay and would stay again in a heartbeat.

Home away from home at the Favorite Sun

  • 5 of 5

The Favorite Sun was very inviting from the moment you walked into the Condo. We stayed in the Sanibel room the was bed very comfortable slept until 9a daily. Home away from home. This was a mini vacation for my husband and I. The location was very central location. Ft Myers Beach we watched the sunset.

Great breakfast was Tuckaway Bagel and Heavenly Biscut (yummie).

Downtown Ft Myers walked the pier ate at the Ford restuarant

We went to Sanibel/Captiva beaches. Shelling was extremely fun. Mucky Duck for dinner

Caught a movie & lunch at the pink building in Ft Myers (very cool)

Drove to St.Pete and Sarasota.

There is a great Italian dinner down the road from the Condo very convenient after a long day.

I would recommend the Favorite Sun for a couples get away and a family vacation.

Lisa and Matt thought of all the little things just come and relax for fun in the sun
