This house is really great, beautifully located and with everything you need.

Owner's reply:

We appreciate you picking our place out of all the other properties you could have stayed in. Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to Fort Myers - as we enjoyed hosting you. We look forward to having you stay again with us real soon. We love it when our tenants come back!! That is the best compliment we can receive - to have a renter return! Hope to see you soon Christine!

Great place to stay

We have just returned home from our Florida stay and both agree we have found a unique and comfortable place to call home for a month during the winter. This rental property is close to the beaches, the dog track, the Twins baseball facility and many wonderful stores and dining places. We also found a bowling alley nearby where they had senior leagues twice a week. Both Connie and and Tom were readily accessible if we had a problem or question, The neighbors were friendly and we felt completely safe in the neighborhood. We have already rented for a month in 2012. We would highly recommend this property.

We really enjoyed our stay. The location was great, apartment was very clean, and in a very nice quiet area. The accommodations were perfect for me and my family. I would definitely recommend your apartment to anyone seeking a cozy place to stay in the Fort Myers Beach area. The rate was great, and again the apartment was perfect.

great value for money

we stayed in the groundfloor apartment for 5 days and found it very good value for money. Kitchen has everything you need and we were also provided a barbecue outside on the lanai. The only thing we missed was a window in the bedroom to let the breeze in at night. Connie was very helpful and I would highly recommand this apartment to others and would definitely stay here again.

Great property, great owner!

Stayed for a week with our two kids. Condo is in very good condition with many new fixtures/improvements. Connie was great! Took care of things wonderfully. Always answered calls. The neighborhood is nothing special, but we only slept there and ate breakfast (although my wife enjoyed her coffee on the screen porch). Would rent again.

Great apartment - great landlords

We rented the 2 bedroom. It was new and spotless and had everything we needed. Close to all amenities and Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel. Connie and Tom are the best, and we have had many rentals over the years so are able to compare. Would certainly utilize their apartment again. Highest recommendation on value for your money!

Wonderful Vacation Home

We stayed in the one-bedroom efficiency on the ground floor and loved it. It was spacious, had everything we needed, and the location was perfect. Connie was very accommodating and made us feel welcomed. We hope to return next winter.

Close to Everything

We stayed in the apartment last November and December while waiting for our house to be completed. It was a great location and Tom and Connie were great whenever any small problem occured. The neighbors were friendly and for our short stay we certainly got a taste of our new "home".

BETTER THEN ANY HOTEL

This apartment truely is, "the best bang for your buck" as stated in the owner's advertising. These owners go out of their way to accommodate their tenants. We saved so much money on the little things you buy while on vacation. Tom and Connie provided more then the average vacation rental owners. Available for your use are beach towels and chairs, weather radio & candles - (for when the electricity went out - who would have thought?), bicycles, cooler for the beach, gas BBQ grill and so much more. They even offer a few board games, a kite, frizbee and a game cube for the kids to use. Upon arrival we noticed a list of movie titles and live concerts which were available from the owner's private DVD library for us to request . They offer over 300 DVD movies! This came in handy after a full day of sun and being too sunburnt to move off the couch! These extra little perks saved us a bunch of money. We will definately stay here again the next time we are in town

Home Away From Home

I stayed in the apartment in parts of Feb, Mar, April and May of 2008. I was very pleased with the amenities. Everything I needed was there. Connie & Tom were wonderful. They went above and beyond to make me feel a "at home" and comfortable. It is close to everything. I would definitely recommend this property. I will definitely contact Connie if I get back to Fort Myers in the future.

Richard Townsend

Wonderful Accommodations!

Stay here and meet two of the best hosts in South Florida. Connie and Tom are the best. They did an outstanding job with this facility and it was very easy to call it "home". The proximity to activities cannot be surpassed by any rental unit -- beaches, golf, super markets, library, outlet malls and restaurants are all within 3 miles of the apartment. Try it....you will love it!

Left on 05/25/2012 for a stay in February & March 2012


We had a wonderful two month stay at Connie and Tom's place in Fort myers. The proximety to several beach options and Sanibel as well is the big draw for us. The other tennants are friendly and quiet and so is the neighborhood. Connie and Tom provide everything you need for a pleasant stay and are very attentive to any problems that pop up. We love it there and will be back again next year...

Left on 04/11/2012 for a stay in March 2012


This was our second year at this rental property. We found the apartment to be very comfortable and enjoyed being close to the beaches and restaurants. Being Twins fans, we were happy to be close to the Hammond Stadium and were completely secure in the neighborhood. Connie and Tom are very helpful and available when problems arise. We always enjoy our stay.

Perfect location, great service, and all the comforts of home in
Left on 05/18/2011 for a stay in May 2011


My husband and I stayed at Connie's place for the first week of May, in the upstairs two bedroom apartment. (The first one featured in the pictures.) Everything about our stay here was absolutely perfect. The apartment was well stocked (we kept getting surprised everytime we opened the drawers - they had everything!), clean, had all kinds of ammenities (a small selection of toiletries in case you forgot some, hair dryer, iron, etc), beautifully decorated, and in a great location. Besides the apartment itself, Connie was so incredibly accomodating, communicative, and understanding. She explained everything up front so we had no worries going in, and everything went smoothly! If we head to Ft. Myers again, we will most definitely stay here!

My husband and I stayed in one of the upper apartments in January and February. This was the third time we have been there and are planning to stay again in 2012. We really like the location. The apartment is very clean and well furnished and Connie and Tom go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.

Hi Connie,
Many thanks for your email. Cleaning up my inbox yesterday I realised I had not replied to your last message. So very sorry! Having spent 14 winters in the US we are very happy to give you some feedback of our experience in previewing your property as well as others while in Fort Myers for a few days. Hope the formatting of my table can be read by email programme. We looked at many properties and although we chose another property to book for next season I wanted to give you my thoughts on your property on Whitewater Court.
Marks out of 5= high, (0= low).
5/5 Local amenities, Winn Dixie across road, etc. etc.
5/5 Price. The reason it was on our view list.
5/5 First impressions, exterior very plain, but very well maintained.
5/5 Fittings, furniture, interior design/decoration. Lounge corner unit most impressive. Would like to take it home!
5/5 Appliances
5/5 Kitchen, All the items one could wish for, and they matched!
5/5 Bathroom small, but spotless.
5/5 Living Area. Compact. Excellent ambience
4/5 Advertising details. Did not mention aspect. We really want the rear of the property to face South.
3/5 W facing (front) balcony not screened so not good for the evening sun, too public.
2/5 Lanai , faces east. Roofed over and too shady for sun-starved UK residents. Too small for loungers.
1/5 Site. Close to main road. Neighbouring property untidy, probably with children so could be noisy.
0/5 No private screened space on the south side for relaxing in the sun.

**This was one of the nicest properties we have viewed. It was a real vacation home. As you are clearly aware,the vacation market is quite different to the residential market, where the tenant may be happy to build up a stock of personal items and move them from property to property. Hope you find our opinions useful.
Kind regards,
Jill Oxenham, UK
