Here"s what our Toronto guest said after staying the entire month of March 2014
Wanted you to know that we have had a fabulous time building family memories this past month. Both our daughters were here with their little ones at separate times, but it was so much fun watching them enjoy your place and the beach. Two of my sibblings have been here this past week and we did a lot of birding etc. Great memories. Last night a dolphin came up the channel!
Everything has been as you said it would be. We've taken good care of your home.
UK Visitors May 2014 Said,
From the moment We made our first enquiry about Widgeon Cottage a year ago, owner Mike could not have been more helpful. We stayed for a week with our 2 sons and their wives, so the 3 double bedrooms were the perfect combination for us. The cottage has all the facilities needed to make for a great vacation, and I'm sure we used them all. We were particularly impressed with the free wifi, laundry facilities and the numerous chairs, tables and sun loungers outside including a selection to take to the beach.The mid island location was superb, with just a short walk to the beach with its beautiful white sand and The Outrigger Tiki Bar for sunset drinks. We also walked to Charlie's Boat House Grill for dinner one evening. We rented bikes and cycled up and down the island, from Times Square to Lovers Key (enjoying delicious ice cream from Kilwins on the way,) The pool at the cottage was delightful and especially welcoming on the hot and sunny days we experienced the entire week. For us though, the best time was spent on the boat dock. We fished, relaxed and saw the most amazing sun rise. A week really wasn't enough.

We provide you with plenty of places to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
At the pool we have three lounge chairs to enjoy the sun. We also have small table and chairs as well as a larger patio table and chairs with umbrella. On the dock we have two lounge chairs and two tables to enjoy that morning coffee overlooking the canal. We also have seating on the patio next to the barbeque. Plenty of parking also. The pool house offers, toys, beach stroller, beach chairs and umbrellas so enjoy the white flour sand on the largest beach of the island just a short walk across the street. Need to do a few clothes we offer a washer and dryer right in the pool house garage. Everything you need is already here even a stroller. We've added a crib for those little ones as of 2014. The entire home has received a fresh coat of paint and new furniture for your comfort. Outside you'll find new deck and dock and many other updates. If you're looking for a private quiet get away for your holiday then Widgeon Cottage will meet your needs.

Welcome to the island where you can lay back or enjoy the active downtown just 4 miles from the home or Lovers Key voted one of the 10 best beach destinations.
We have 7 miles of pure white flour like sand just 2 blocks from the home. If you'd like to go to Key West it's just 5 miles to pick up the boat which gets you there fast. Visit the Edison Ford Summer home in Fort Myers and see where these two moguls as well as the Firestone family hung out. Fishing in the gulf is outstanding with lots of charters minutes from the home, or rent your own boat for the week or a few hours and explore the back bay or cruise around the island (park right at our dock). Take a short drive to Naples and view the mansions and there famous downtown...great for the art lovers. Need more night life than Fort Myers head to Miami's famous South Beach just a couple of hours away or take in a day to tour the Everglades. If that isn't enough just four hours to Orlando to visit Micky Mouse and beautiful Disney Land. A great place to start or end your vacation. You can also go to Busch Gardens in Tampa for a great day. This is a great centrally located destination on the gulf.
Within less than a mile of the home there is also a movie theater, 1 block convenience store, restaurants and a bank. Within 1 mile is Santini Plaza where you will find wonderful shops, outstanding restaurants from the top seafood restaurant in the area to casual sports bar with great pizza - and they deliver pizza too! Never Leave the Island: Ft Myers Beach is an all inclusive island, you will never have to leave if you don't want to.
Take a short drive or take the trolley system for .25 and head up to Time Square for some dining and dancing or some great shopping. Hit the beach for a walk do a little shelling (remember don't bring home a live one it's not legal)and watch the dolphins fish or the pelicans diving for fish or do some fishing yourself (no fishing license required at pier downtown) or simply plop down in the sand and just relax and watch the world go buy. You may even see dolphins or a manatee or two in the canal in front of the home. What a thrill.
