What a magical place! We had our wedding there 6/7/14. Heidi and Bruiser were so great at accommodating and helping. We had the immediate family staying there as well and everyone loved it!! They have great spaces and opened up the entire place for us. Highly recommend for a wedding, family reunion, friend reunion, or any getaway with a larger... More

My husband and I had a first floor room for a week in July. It was exactly what I'd imagine living on the beach to be like. We brought our two dogs with us, which was very nice as it can be difficult finding hotels that allow pets. The managers were very friendly and always willing to be of service.... More

I was looking for a place to completely relax during Memorial weekend. Didn't want to go up and down elevators, stairs with the kids dragging the luggage, the dog, etc. etc. This place is directly on the beach, steps from the ocean. This is a two story building and our room was on the first floor, as soon as you... More

This 5 room old Florida style gulf front hotel had such a happy vibe I was happy from the moment I first talked to the proprietor to the last glimpse as I sadly drove away the next morning. It's not luxurious. It's just right! Need anything....just ask. #4, the room I occupied, sits at the edge of the sand and... More

We took a short weekend getaway and found this gem of a place on the beach. Located mid Island and in a relaxing yet in close proximity to everything. Not ultra-modern but quaint, clean and extremely welcoming. The Gulf was steps away and they had everything we could need to enjoy our stay. We felt like welcomed by our hosts... More

We've been coming to Surf and Us every year for the last 9 or 10 years and hope to keep coming back for many more years. The location is amazing. Less than 3 steps from our door to the beautiful white sand of Ft Myers Beach. Plenty of private beach for sunning and wonderful shade in the pavilion. Lots of... More

Right on the beach, cozy efficiency, no frills. Lots to do and see in South Florida. The hosts, Heidi and Bruiser are friendly and helpful. The price is better than anything else comparable that we looked at. The ONLY drawback is the traffic on Estero Blvd.

Went to surf and us for a wedding and stayed with other family members in one of the suites. The view is incredible and the hosts are attentive and friendly. There was no request or question too small or unimportant. Right near anything you'd want to do and incredibly relaxing and enjoyable even if you want to do nothing. Perfect... More
