“Wonderful Week!”

Widgeon Cottage and the owners, Dan and Collen were fantastic. The home is even better than the photo's. Dolphins visited the canal almost every morning. Evenings were relaxing under the stars and swaying palms. Home was spacious and comfortable. Very well supplied with needed items. Short, easy walk to the beach. Would highly recommend!

“Very relaxing and comfortable place to stay.”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a wonderful time and so glad for the pool as it rained quite a bit off and on each day. We were able to swim in the pool most of the time without having to worry about getting caught at the beach in a storm. Mike was wonderful to our family. The grand kids had a great time watching the geckos and playing in the pool. Overall a great vacation for all!!

We returned to Ft. Myers Beach this year after spending the year before in Madeira Beach. we love Ft .Myers beach and Widgeon Cottage was awesome!!! Loved the pool, hot tub, and the space!!! We loved getting up every morning and sitting on the dock. The privacy was great and it was very quiet and peaceful!!! We hope to go back next year and return to Widgeon Cottage. Thanks for the great vacation.

“A week is just not long enough”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

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.
