Location of the house is perfectly located on the beach. Right as the pictures show. We arrived at the apartment and had been welcomed very warmly by Claudia. We also got to know her nice family that fitted our own just perfect. Having two kids our own (2 and 6 years) the place really was family friendly. The furnishings are good and everything we needed had been available. It would just have been perfect if the kitchen would have had some more space to put things onto and a dishwasher. Thank you Claudia and in case we come over from Germany again we would stay at your place again.

I stayed here with my husband and in-laws. My father-in-law doesn't get around as well as he used to and I wanted to be sure he could enjoy the beach without a hike. Wow, this place sure accomplished that, as he only needed to step out the door to have a great view. Actually, didn't even need to step out the door - the view was great from inside, too. The beach is literally right off the patio. I sat in the shade of the upper deck (used by Claudia and her family) and watched willets and sandpipers run up and down with the waves and observed pelicans and osprey fishing and most days caught glimpses of dolphins. The apartment is unique - as the lower level of Claudia's family's home, it stretches across the full width of the house and the rooms are lined up across it - lots of space to spread out. One bedroom was to the street-side of the house and was where you first enter the apartment. While it was slightly odd to have the entry into a bedroom, it wasn't an issue for us, as once we were there we used the beachside sliding doors for going to and from the beach. The other main bedroom is on the far end of the apartment, and I appreciated that privacy. The kitchen was adequate - not a foodie's delight, but certainly well-equipped enough that we could cook most of our meals without issues. Not glamorous, but fine. Claudia was a super-communicator - responding quickly to any questions. If your idea of a dream vacation rental is a clean, comfortable space with absolutely incredible views of the ocean and sunsets, you've found it.

Claudia was a fantastic host. Everything was exactly as described in the listing. The views and the accessibility to the beach were better than imagined. Claudia was there anytime we had questions, but made herself and her family scarce so there was plenty of privacy, even though they were an absolute pleasure to be around. Thanks again for a fantastic stay Claudia!

The host provided extensive information in advance to ensure our arrival went very smoothly. The house was larger than expected and absolutely wonderful. The photos do not do it justice, it was beyond our expectations. Just a few miles south of the commercial areas with the stores and bars, the immediate area was quiet, with only a few people on the beach. Easy access to food and drink is available at the Publix supermarket across the street and less than a block away. The well stocked kitchen and large refrigerator made cooking and snacks easy. Public beach access is a distance in both directions, so only a few hiked to the section of the beach in front of the house. Storks walked along the beach or ate in the shallow water in front of the house. Several times a stork walked across the yard between the house and the beach. Every day pelicans could be watched feeding in the ocean just off the beach. The sunsets were amazing, evening after evening. We quickly learned that though Fort Myers had a forecast for thunderstorms, we only got an occasional rain on the island. The house comes well stocked, from cookware and utensils through a stack of beach towels to lounges and chairs outdoors. Most of the ocean facing wall is a series of sliding glass doors, providing an expansive view from almost any room. The host kept us well informed and responded quickly to texted questions. Both the house and the host deserve more than the 5 stars available in the rating system. I highly recommend this rental. There was only one problem that I did encounter – I did not want to leave at the end of our stay.

My family was pleased with the setting. Location was awesome. You will be near everything but have the peace of the beach. There should be interior pictures of the apartment.

Very well placed location. The beach is literally at your back door. Nice appointments. Good beds. Away from the hustle of the condos lining the beaches. Virtually problem free accommodation.
