Great location + great property = happy family !

May 9, 2015

We had an absolutely fabulous time over spring break. There were 6 of us, my wife and I plus my two teen-aged daughters and two teen-aged nieces - yes, me and 5 women - LOL. I'm so glad we found Mike and his property. We could walk to everything which saved a lot of hassle when it was busy on the streets. The walk to the beach was nice because there were restaurants and a coffee shop along the way. It was quiet around the property where we stayed and the pool was nice icing on the cake. We stayed in unit 20 which has two bedrooms plus two sleeper-sofas ... it was perfect for our group because we could all hang out without being on top of each other. My experience with Mike was that he did what he promised and I could trust him. I was tentative at first because I had heard of scams via VRBO but Mike was great to work with on our spring break. Even after our stay he was gracious enough to ship an item back to us that we had left behind. If we go back to Fort Myers Beach we will be staying at Mike's place!

We enjoyed our stay at this location. It is easy to get to the beach and Times Square. We loved how it was located on a quiet street. It has a beautiful screened in porch that overlooks the canal. The swimming pool is a plus.

Thank you for your kind review. We enjoyed having you stay at our property. Thanks for bringing the shortstop Major League Baseball Minnesota Twins (#25/Infielder) Pedro Alexander Florimón, Jr to our property and introducing him to my wife and I. Thank Pedro for encouraging the boy who stayed next to your unit, who hopes to be a professional ball player.
