“Will go again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

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 fee but didn't take them afterall, at the end of the trip we didn't want to leave and asked to stay another night - after Wanda checking if the room was available, she let us stay another night for the for a wash of the pet fee. Thank you Wanda and Phil, we had a really nice time and we will see you again!

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 trolley that has a pick up stop near the end of the street. Again, this place is just amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We take a girls trip every summer and we usually go to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, but we thought we would try the Island Hideaway in Ft Myers Beach, Fl. WELL we loved it. A beautiful place to stay, the owners Rhonda and Phillip were wonderful and helped us out with everything we needed. The house we rented was beautiful and soo very comfortable. We did not need a thing there but our clothes. There is a trolly that you can ride from one end of the island to the other. and you can buy a 3 day pass for 3.00. this place was greatness. It only takes maybe 3 minutes to get to the great beach, great sugar sand and water was great. One of the perks while you stay is they have all the beach chairs and umbrellas and coolers, just anything you need for the beach they have. You just dont have to worry about anything but getting up. The beds are to die for and the bathrooms are huge. , we got rained out one day, but no problem, lay around on the comfy couches and watch flat screen TV.!! So much fun, and the pool is great to swim in after you get out of the ocean, and we walked alot , so the hot tub was great .!!! We will keep going back every summer now. We would tell anyone to go there and take a visit and stay at Island Hideaway. And Rhonda and Phillip were the best.!!!! oh and the beaches were not crowded at all while we were there, from June 25 through July 3, 2013.

Room Tip: any of them are great, we took a tour of all the houses while we were there and they are all great...

My husband and I and my Niece and her husband came down for a week, right at the end of Spring Break 2013. This was our first time visiting Fort Myers Beach area and we absolutely loved it. The Island Hideaway was the perfect place to stay. The accommodations were comfy and cozy!!! You felt like you were at your own home. The location was wonderful also. There were many things to do and the beach was across the street. It was nice having the pool and the jacuzzi in the back so you could relax after a long day of site seeing. The owners, Rhonda and Phillip were so nice, friendly and helpful with any questions you may have and also great at giving you some ideas of places to go. If you are looking for a great place to go.... this is the place.

For Easter Break 2013 I stayed at the Hideaway in Ft Myers Beach. It was really close to the beach and away from the hustle and bustle on a quiet little street. It was a great place for shelling and after a great day at the beach, jumping into the bed was unbelievable. The bed was incredibly comfortable and soft. The unit was decorated very cool in a jungle motif. The owners Rhonda and Phil were very nice and offered us bikes to ride and beach chairs to use. I will definitely go back and recommend to my friends. I had a great time.

My husband and I came to the Island Hideway for our honeymoon. We came to Ft.Myers Beach since that is where we went on our first vacation together. Last time we stayed right by the bridge. This was far better. It is away from the crowds and is very quiet and relaxing. It is also only a block from the beach with a private, lush beach walk and a short walk to beach restaurants.

The pool and hot tub set up was amazing. There are 4 units total to share it but it seemed private to us. It is fenced in with many plants and trees surrounding. It was also perfect for our dog with a potty spot outside the fence.

There is also a great breeze that comes through when you open one of the many doors in the room. We loved everything about it. From the huge, updated kitchen to the memory foam bed and tile shower. This is a true island Hideway. You feel like you are on a tropical island, not just in Florida.

The owners were also very friendly. They kept the pool and hot tub clean and asked if we needed anything. They even had a bottle of Champagne in the frige for us when we arrived. If you stay here, you will enjoy your trip to Ft. Myers Beach, Florida!!
