“Even better than last time”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

This was my fifth time back to the Island Hideaway and it was even better than the last time (didn't think that would be possible)! The addition of the pool and spa was an absolutely wonderful surprise and treat! Not to mention all the upgrades to the property such as the stone pavers and landscaping. The whole package is absolutely amazing and one that creates a euphoric state for me that takes all my worries away. This trip was my first romantic trip there with my boyfriend and he was as taken with the place as I am. When we weren't in the beautifully decorated unit, we were out exploring the island on scooters, taking in all the restaurants, beaches, shopping, etc. The only problem with my stay was that it wasn't long enough!! We will definitely be back time and time again!

My girlfriend and I spent four nights here over 4th of July weekend. We had a great time. The accomodations were fabulous. The room was luxurious. We were so close to everything that we biked on Ft. Myers beach almost everywhere. The beach was a short walk or you can just lay by the pool in the back. We had such a romantic weekend. I can't wait to go to Island Hideaway again.

This was relaxing and fun. The kayak trips and bike rides to local restaurants were great and the Island Hideaway is beautiful. They have put so much thought into the place. Definately a trip to be repeated. Noneen O`Rafferty

My wife and I took advantage of a Groupon promotion for a one night getaway in nearby Fort Myers Beach. The accomodation was excellent, the pool was right outside our door, and the beach was a very easy walking distance down the street. Overall, this was an excellent place for the short getaway we desired.

The only negative surprise was the requirement that we wash the sheets and make the bed prior to check out. We have stayed in many types of accomodations including hotels, B&B inns, cabins in a state park, a timeshare, etc.; and this is the first time we have ever seen this. Since checkout was at 10 AM, our short one night stay was even shorter. We mention this not as a complaint but simply as a "heads up" to other potentail guests. Overall, however, our experience was great; and we recommend Island Hideaway highly.

i love this place so much im writing a review while im still here.... it is more beautiful than the pictures.. it is decorated with the finest decor... it has beautiful landscaping, a beautiful pool and hot tub, i purchased or stay with a groupon but i would be more than happy to pay full price for this place! the beds are so comfy, a beautiful shower too.... the kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is fully stocked with china, pots n pans, cutlery, even the seasoning for your food! it is romantic and private and the hosts here are so friendly and caring, they really made this the best vacation ive ever had, this place was more than i expected, rhonda and her husband truly went above and beyond,, with all the little extra details towels, robes, clothes soap, dish soap, just any little thing u might need is available to u, we took the kayaks out to the beach they even had life jackets and i got a cute pink one that matched my bathing suit, we had chamagne waiting for us in the fridge, even nice lil shampoos that smelled wonderful and of high quality...... i could go on for days but one thing is for certain the owners went above and beyond.... we will definitely return:)

We stayed here after purchasing a groupon for the Island Hideaway. Everything about the stay was wonderful. Even though we only got to stay for one night, and checkout was at 10:00 AM, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Rhonda and Phil are very nice hosts. We enjoy being there because they are also very pet friendly and they both like Murphy.
The main problem this year was that the pool/hot tub were not finished and people were working there during the day. Being confident that all will be finished next year we are looking forward to our next visit.
The walk to the beach is not all that bad even though one has to cross Estero Blvd. but the
drivers usually let you cross without problem.
