Hi Erin – thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We’re glad you enjoyed your vacation! We put a lot of time into writing detailed property descriptions and hire a professional photographer for each of our properties in order to most accurately portray the location and accommodations. Many guests book this condo on the south end of the island looking for a more quiet & relaxing getaway on the private beach, while still being in close proximity to the main attractions and events on the main part of Fort Myers Beach. There are a handful of activities and 6 restaurants within a .6 mile walk of the condo, including the beach trolley mentioned in the description which makes a stop within that walk. Unfortunately, we were not aware of the broken beach chairs or the dead batteries. We would have loved the opportunity to take care of those items for you had we been made aware during your stay. Thank you again, and we will make every effort to correct those items for future guests!
Barbara - thank you for your kind review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and the beautiful beaches! We welcome you back at any time!
We are thrilled you had a great time Stacy and thank you for your review! We appreciate the opportunity to accommodate you and your family and welcome you to stay with us again in the future. Thank you also for the feedback on the cleaning instructions and we'll revise such in our software promptly. Wishing you and yours all the best!
