I booked my one week stay at the Island Hideaway through their own website. I was required to pay in full 60 days in advance of my stay, and received an email confirmation from the owner (Rhonda) saying I would be staying in a ground floor, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1,100 square foot unit called "The Starfish", and was told...

We try to accommodate every one and m pm. The unit was not ready and the guest had traveled a long way. We did have the unit ready by the check in time. The original unit they were to stay in was a 900 sf one bedroom, we had t move a guest due to a mechanical issue the prior... More

This unit was very disappointing. Just walking to the entry was not a good first impression. The door was in need of a paint job, rusty chair outside needed to be removed, not very inviting. Inside the door we found the unit to be very dark with dirty rugs, burned out light bulbs and broken ceiling tiles. The kitchen appliances... More

This guest was completely unhappy with the unit from the time they pulled into the driveway, they were unhappy we were not beach front, we do not claim to be and our site is very detailed showing accurate and up to date photos and descriptions of how far the beach is to get to. We did offer her an upgraded... More

This was a very nice place....close to the beach (less than 5 minute walk) and near FT.Myers restauraunts, shopping and nightlife... but secluded. Rhoda and Phil were great and made sure everything was in order. Our second stay at this place and definitely going back!

My wife and I just returned from a great stay at the Island Hideaway. There were a couple of glitches when we first got there, but our hosts, Rhonda and Phil addressed them immediately and then proceeded to make us feel welcome throughout our stay. For the past several years we have vacationed in Sanibel but after looking at Rhonda's... More

This is so terrible it will sound like a fictional story, but its sadly true: We booked the property through VRBO (a known property rental site) and were promised a week in paradise. It was anything but. They do not show pictures of the location anywhere other than tripadvisor, and we booked it thinking it was another property. The pictures... More

I'm writing this article for my sister and mom (they are not TripAdvisor members). I can tell you that the suites that they both selected (I stayed at the other property Beach n Place), were roomy, clean, stylish, and very comfortable. The free beach chairs and umbrellas were a nice addition (and one thing less to worry to bring from... More

It was our first vacation since the last 2 years and we didn't really know what to look for exactly in a rental in florida. I spoke with Rhonda which is the owner of this amazing house at 165 anchorage street in fort myers beach several times, and she was very helpful. So we were at her place for a... More

My wife and I went for a work getaway here. The owners, are great - very down to earth, friendly and hospitable. The house was very clean, comfortable, and convenient with all the amenities of home including wifi and cable. The neighborhood is quiet and close to everything with the private beach in walking distance. I had paid a pet... More

We did not need to leave to our hideaway. Just staying there was so peaceful and relaxing...We were there for my sons travel baseball games and this place was so convenient. Also they have great fishing and the pool and spa at the hideaway was outstanding....

Words just do not justify how amazing this place is. You have all the comforts of home plus the owners have all items needed for a stay at the beach for the renters. If there is something you need, the owners will assist you as quick as possible. Anything you need is within miles of which you can ride the... More
