A paradise in the gulf
Overall an excellent experience. Perfect for families with children of all ages. The house was fully accommodating with all amenities needed for a perfect get away. Loved it❤️❤️
Enjoyed our third stay at this property
We come here every 2 years and we enjoyed our stay, as always!
Perfect for family
Perfect for 6 adults and our 4 grandkids under 7. The grands loved the bunk room and the couples each had their own space. There was a double rainbow on our last night there which none of us have ever seen. Great time by all!!
Great Home and Location
The week we spent there was amazing. We can't wait to go back.
We are glad you had an amazing week. Most of our guests feel this way and return year after year. We look forward to hearing from you in the future.
Best location and beach vacation
This house is the perfect location and was all we wanted for our family of 5 with 3 preteen boys. The value is amazing! Every morning we walked on the beach and ate breakfast on the porch that faces the ocean... this was my favorite spot!
There is tons of seating and umbrellas for everyone to hang out together. There are also plenty of sand toys, balls, and beach chairs. The shelling was amazing and we saw dolphins in this spot everyday!!
The pool was key for cooling off when the afternoon got hot and we wanted a break from the beach. Every evening after dinner, we played frisbee on the beach and watched the unbelievable sunsets.
From a moms point of view, the newly redone kitchen was excellent with plenty of dishes and silverware, and Sunday-morning sized coffee cups! While I don't want to cook for my entire vacation, three boys eat a lot so we can't eat out every meal. We enjoyed eating in a few nights and going out a couple of nights. There are all new cooking utensils and top of the line appliances and cookware.
It was also nice that everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom. This is a luxury, but realize that the finishes are a little rustic as this is an older home. It was perfect for us but renters should know that the fixtures are a little dated and basic.
The linens were really nice and smelled super fresh. There are tons of beach and bath towels, and having laundry handy is critical for our bunch. We washed everything mid week and then used it again.
There are games and puzzles available to use, and a bookshelf of books for you to access. When we had spent a few days at the house and were ready to venture out, we spent the day visiting Sanibel and Captiva islands for bike rides, beaches, and some kayaking.
Overall, this house is an amazing value and the proximity to the uncrowded beach was unbelievable to us. We seriously accessed the beach so much more than if we'd had to access stairs or an elevator and carry everything down from a condo.
Finally, the house was immaculate when we arrived... the cleaning crew did an excellent job. As a former VRBO rental owner, I know this can be hard to ensure. Even the sand in front of the house was groomed for our arrival!
Thanks for a great week!
Thanks for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review of our property. It really does sum it up. A note to future renters. We contacted the guest that wrote this review to get clarification regarding her feedback on furnishings. Her response was: ""I hope that my comment is not misinterpreted as negative..... we actually thought the furnishings were much nicer in person than the photos! The couch and coordinating chairs are a good material for being able to get sand off.... so I know that a plush material is not practical for the location!" This is an accurate statement and good clarification. We are a beach house and the decor is tropical, not plush, by design. We have sand and sunscreen to deal with so our furnishings are chosen with these factors in mind. The pictures accurately depict the style of the house and we hope that this is what you will enjoy!
Worst Seaweed ever! House is old.
Unfortunately we could not get on the beach because of red tide. The house needs to be updated; and for the size, has a small deck (we couldn't fit all guests comfortably). As soon as we checked in, we opened the blinds and one fell off. These blinds were cheap and flimsy.
The house also slopes to one side in the kitchen.
We are very sorry you had a less than perfect experience. We take great pride in creating a top quality BEACH HOUSE . We are a beach house, located 6' off the sand and ALL beach houses in SW Florida that are close to the sand were constructed years ago and have been remodeled and remodeled, so the base structures have been around for quite a while. Floors will occasionally slope since they are supported by pilings in the sand. We have owned the house 20 years and have leveled the floors multiple times. Sand is not bedrock and pilings will shift.
Our pictures accurately depict the house which we are constantly updating and improving. We have 33 reviews of which 30 are 5 star, two are 4 star and then your review. Sorry the house didn't please you but it seems you must have been expecting something different.
The red tide is something we wish we could fix but it comes occasionally and usually doesn't stay long. I'm sorry you had to experience that natural phenomenon.
Stunning sunset ocean views enhance your meals from the dining room, and three different porches or patios directly on the Gulf. Catch your dinner of trophy snook, redfish, and trout right out your door on one of the best surf beaches in Southwest Florida. The fishing is super in the spring, summer, and fall when Snook and Redfish congregate on the beach. Or, just relax in your beach front Hot Tub enjoying the ocean breeze, and leave the fishing to the pelicans and dolphins, who will provide you with an aerial and aquatic ballet, as they search the Gulf for breakfast.
Walk the miles of beach. Enjoy the thrill of beach combing for buried treasures and wading the sand bar at low tide in search of sand dollars, live shells, and giant starfish. The beach is one of the safest in the world with a very gradual drop off.... undertow or rip currents are very, very rare. Sunset Paradise is one of the nicest homes on Fort Myers Beach; a truly spectacular property.
