Or, to listen to radio stations, the Apple-Box has also a large selection of international broadcast. We don’t have old-fashion cable, antenna or sat TV since the Apple-TV box has plenty content to watch.

It not only plays live stations but you can also listen to any CD's with the build-in, included, Rhapsody music service.

STUDIO, GARDEN and POOL
There are no additional visitors permitted other than the 2 guests. This is a very quite adult couples only place and shall remain that way. Sorry, absolutely no pets are permitted. The studio is an all ground floor unit just a bit larger than a regular hotel room. All floors are hygienic laid out with porcelain tiles.
From your double glass-doors you have access to your lanai equipped with reclining patio chairs. Cushions for those chairs are inside your closet. The lanai is Western exposed and faces sunsets in the evenings.
The property is located on a 1/3 acres ground with plenty tropical trees, palms and bushes, but also with an open beach-gravel area to find sunny spots for two of the a lounge chairs.
The garden also features a pool (Ø 14' x 48" deep) to dip in and refresh yourself during the hot season. If you are an elderly person then you might find it difficult to enter the pool with the small ladder. Garden and pool are only accessible exclusively by the guests of this house. Bathing in the yards pool or the Gulf’s warm waters is easy possible, the Beach is located just around 2 corners and 2 miles straight down the road, called Bunche Beach. For maintenance I have different contractors to support you. For example weekly pool & garden care, final cleaning- and handyman-services. Together with the arrival guide you will receive a very detailed house guide. Arrival and departure days can be any day as long as it shows open at the availability calendar.

While Frank was excellent to work with, the property itself is underwheming. On the plus side, it is centrally located with easy access to Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island. The Fort Myers bus/trolley system is excellent and, at $1.50 a trip or $4 a day, very reasonably priced. Square footage is excellent. The best description of the home is 'minimal.' The furniture is low end - the couch sags in the middle. The supply of kitchen utensils is spartan. We did not attempt to open windows for fear of damaging them, as well as the accumulation of cobwebs and dust. The finish on the construction/renovations suggest minimal attention to quality work: grout uneven on tiling, thresholds not fully covered by finishing. The property would require a significant investment to elevate it to the standard of properties we have experienced on other Home Away vacations. Note: The review applies to the Beach Turtle, a larger property to which Frank had kindly upgraded us the week prior to our arrival
My husband and I enjoyed staying in this unit because it was centrally located to many attractions that we wanted to visit. There were good restaurants nearby and at the end of the evening there was a very private patio on which to relax. The area was very quiet which made for a wonderful night of sleep.
