“Great Cottage with Wonderful Pool and Hot Tub!”

This was our first trip to Fort Myers Beach, FL. and we absolutely loved it! The cottage was very nice and clean. Everything we expected from the pictures and reviews! The reason why we chose this cottage was because we loved the idea of using the pool and hot tub when ever we wanted. Most hotels and condo's make you get out after 9 pm. We also loved that this cottage included the bikes and kayaks which was really convenient and made our stay more enjoyable. The cottage was an easy short walk to the beach and to one of our favorite bars at sunset, the Outrigger Tiki Bar! We also enjoyed fishing right off the canal using the fishing poles that were provided! Dan, the owner really takes care of you and makes sure to answer any questions that you may have. My family highly recommends this cottage!

We stayed from Sept 12 - Sept 19. Traveled from Dallas, Texas. We were greeted by the owners, Dan and Colleen and they were very nice and welcoming. The house was GREAT! Everything was just as advertised. The owners stay on site and are very helpful with anything we needed and with recommendations for the beach and sightseeing we did. We will definitely be booking again.

“Wonderful vacation stay”

Stayed for a week in April/2015. Wonderful stay. Units are exceptionally clean and well decorated. Wonderful to step out in the morning and relax on the dock/canal with a cup of coffee. All sorts of equipment is supplied - bikes, kayaks, umbrellas, etc. We really enjoyed riding the bikes around. We had never kayaked before and it was very nice to kayak around to other canals and out to the Estero Bay and see all the wildlife. The beach is about a 5 minute walk – the owners supply a nice “little” beach caddie – makes it really simple to get umbrella, ice chest, towels, etc to the beach. There is small pool/jacuzzi – very nice to use if you don’t feel like heading to the beach. The property is on a quiet residential street – so if you’re looking for wild parties – this is not the place for you. 7 Eleven about 1 block away, Publix grocery store about ¾ mile away. Excellent WiFi provided, cable, and Apple TV – all very nice. Owner lives on the property and really cares about guests having a great experience.

The moment we walked in it was more than expected. Dan & Colleen are the MOST perfect hosts, can not say enough good things about them. The back deck was wonderful for morning coffee, watching sunrise and seeing wildlife enjoying the water. For the home, it was ideal, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, tons of space to be together or relax alone.. The private pool was so nice for afternoon break after sunny beach ( which is 5 minute walk).. Amenities were super impressive, Dan helped my Mom and Daughter go Kayaking.. We used all 4 bikes to ride to town, they have coolers to take to beach, beach wagon to carry the umbrella and beach towels which they provide as well..and even washer dryer if you need it.. Simple things that gave it a personal touch and made you feel welcome and at home, Soaps , Shampoos..Coffee.. I can go on and on, we used the reviews the choose Widgeon Cottage and trust you will too.. This is a spot not to miss!!

We just returned from 2 weeks in Widgeon Cottage and are missing it already, It is a home away from home with everything we needed and more. We really enjoyed using the bikes and kayaks provided. Pool, spa and deck overlooking the canal were great. The owners Dan and Colleen did everything to make our stay really special. We couldn't have been happier.

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!
