About Owner / Property Manager

I am a retired elementary school principal. I enjoy renovating old houses and keep busy in NW Ohio with kids and grandkids.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Fort Myers Beach

Location, location, location ( well a wonderful new pool!)

This property as a whole has three great units...the biggest is the boathouse and can accommodate a large group very easily. Completely furnished and has a washer dryer on the premises for laundry as needed. Within quick walking distance of the beach and practically everything else you'd need on the island including the trolley which stops .1 mile from the front door.

What makes this cottage unique

The trolley, grocery stores nearby, awesome restaurants, and activities and nightlife too many too list. There is something for everyone when you stay here, and we will make sure you find everything you need to have the best vacation ever! You WILL come back year after year!!

Great location and nice home.

  • 4 of 5

The open house plan with plenty of amenities was perfect for our group. The neighbors we shared the pool with turned out to be a perfect compliment to our crew. The home has had a lot of use and is beginning to show it, but nothing that deterred us from a great week of fun in the sun!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us!! I’m very glad you enjoyed your stay. With the likes of the hurricane, we have been cleaning up and replacing as quickly as possible, although it takes time to get service when so many others needed it too. We have already replaced the outside damaged Awnings, replaced the sectional sleeper sofa, secured the pool fence, etc. with many more updates coming this summer. Again, thanks for your feedback and please come back! Kay Kuhlman

My boys and I had an amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was clean and cute with a glass bottom that the kids loved! We loved the pool and it was a short walk to the beach! We'd definitely stay again.

Gorgeous vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Most amazing vacation I've had in a long time! The glass floor in the living room was awesome! The pool was super relaxing and private. Lots of delicious restaurants and great places to shop all within walking distance. The beach was just a short walk away too. I would most defiantly recommend this place to others and I will be planning another stay here again soon!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The place was clean and ready for us upon our arrival. Tons of space for everyone! We enjoyed our morning coffee on the porch sitting by the canal. The pool was awesome for when we wanted a break from the beach. The location of the property is perfect. It's only a short walk to the square, dining and the beach. So much to do. We will definitely be staying here again.

Perfect location with great pool area

  • 5 of 5

Everything worked out perfect. Great place to stay if you want to stay out of your car, easy walking distance to many restaurants. The pool area was beautiful with gas grills and plenty of seating. I like the fact that we were very close to everything but far enough off the main road that it was quiet.

Would stay here again and again

Nice but small inconveniences

  • 2 of 5

This house is in a great location. It’s less than a 5-minute walk to the beach, restaurants and bike rental. It had a great view of the channel and it was neat to watch the tide come in and out. The pool area was excellent with plenty of room as well as sitting areas. But the second day, the pool was completely green and I could not locate any pool tools. The owner did contact a company to get the pool cleared up. It also had a hot tub but we found it be the same temperature as the pool. The house was nice and the beds were comfortable but we had a few inconveniences. Such as lukewarm water in the kitchen, no dish soap (we were provided some the next day), wrong sized coffee filters, no ziplocs (I bought some to leave there – kids like to keep shells) large Weber grill did not work, and the tub filling up while taking a shower in the main bath. I could not locate hand towels for the bathroom and only found two towels for the small bathroom and for a week I felt there should have been at least 4 – I did buy laundry soap to do a load mid-week. Upon check out I felt we were rushed. My confirmation said the checkout time was 11 am however it must be 10 am. The cleaning crew was waiting and the maintenance man came in the house and showed another group of renters around as I was still packing. Overall it was an ok experience, but the housekeeping items should be checked more often. It would be nice to have items such as pool and beach toys provided or if they were there to let renters know where to find them.

Owner's Response: We did have a problem with the old pool service company taking care of the pool. We have changed to a new pool service company and have has no problems with the pool this year. I have had a talk with the cleaning crew and they will stay on top of making sure there are enough towels and linen for your stay. Dave
