Perfect beach getaway! What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend in the cottage with our two dogs and can't wait to go back! Claudia was there to welcome us and just a text away if we had any questions or needed anything. The kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast each day and the grill outside was a great option to have! The cottage was very clean and comfortable - even the bed was comfortable which is a huge plus and not always the case in rentals!!!

The location was perfect...across the street from the grocery store, bar/restaurant and a marina where we rented a boat each day. There were so many great places to boat including secluded beaches and restaurants - great way to spend a couple of days! The beach at the cottage was very nice too and on a quieter part of Ft Myers Beach. It was nice being able to use the beach area in front of the main house too! The cottage is set just behind the main house and has parking right at the door.

It's a quick 5 minute drive into town where the were tons of options for food and drink. And if you have dogs...this is a really great option since the beach and many restaurants were dog friendly! It was our first time visiting that area, but we travel quite a bit and were very impressed with the entire experience!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is just as shown on the site and provides a neat experience. All the required items to prepare a meal or just relax are at your fingertips without having to think or look too hard. The Publix grocery store across the street is great for items you might decide you need. The parking spot is ideal and private. The access to Fort Myers Beach popular spots is easy just a few minutes drive away.

Great Time!

What a great hidden gem.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. I was recovering from a hysterectomy and this was the perfect place. No steps to climb. Just a short walk to the beach. The bed was very comfortable. It’s a really cute little cottage with plenty of room for the two of us or even a family of 4. Thank you Claudia for your great hospitality. Being available for quick questions was very helpful. Our only regret was not booking it for a little longer time. We hated to leave. We look forward to returning again soon.

We had a lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay! This was the perfect place for us. We wanted to visit Florida and chose Ft. Myers beach because it is dog friendly. The location relative to the beach was very convenient. Parking was easy and right next to the cottage. The Publix is right across the street. Claudia was very responsive. Would definitely recommend!
