The house is beautiful. Family friendly and all the comforts of home. The only down side was that the heating in the pool was not effective however when I emailed universal vacations they came out and turned the heating up which made it perfect from then on.
Checking in was easier than at other companies.
Fab location with a beautiful park close by.
Great service in a beautiful location

We appreciate that the service we get with Universal is very dependable and prompt. We like the location and think the house is outfitted well. Over the next few years the owners might consider replacing beach towels and mattress in master bedroom, but generally the house has many extras not found in many rentals. We look forward to returning next year!

Instructions regarding location and access to the property were fine. Property was clean and tidy on our arrival. We had to contact Universal on one occasion regarding a minor matter which was dealt with immediately.
The home was a lovely open plan house with evidence of recent re-refurbishment to a high standard. The pool/lanai area was fantastic with sun all day and possibly the best location on the development. All pool furniture was of a high standard.
Close to restaurants, beaches and shopping the location was great as part of a quiet community.
Very minor issues were that the television reception was not the best and a few light bulbs need replacement however this did not detract from our overall experience which was excellent and would have no hesitation in fully recommending this property as your holiday home.

We spend our holidays from 10-23-13 till 11-10-13 in one of the houses from Universal Vacacions on Wellington circle. The house was perfect and we had a great time with our friends. The swimmingpool was great. Nearby the beautyful beach of Fort Myers.
Everything was great!!!

Great house and pool! We thought the owners did a wonderful job with the updates. The house is very well equipped as well. This is our second year with Universal and the service we received continued to be excellent. Also, everyone we dealt with at Universal were most attentive. Thank you! We enjoyed the pool and setting the most; however, we did find that because the pool faced west, the sun was so strong in the late afternoon that it made it difficult to sit outside around the patio table to have dinner. So we just enjoyed the pool more and ate later!

We had a great time staying at this place. The house was comfortable and equipped with every thing you need to relax and enjoy holiday time. It was situated in a residential neighborhood that was also quite, safe and well-kept. Honestly, seldom did we have such a nice accommodation on holiday. The check-in was as easy and fast as I can imagine. So, in sum, we can really recommend this place to everybody - young and older couples, families or friends who travelle together. Everybody will probably have a good time - at least! :-)

The house is located in a quiet area that has good sidewalks for walking. The grocery store was convenient. As we first entered the house we were pleasantly surprised by the large great room and kitchen. The house was nicely furnished. The the flat screen tv was great, but we suggest you provide instructions on the use of the 3 controllers. The kitchen was well equipped, however the oven would not turn on. It indicated there was a lock on. We were surprised that we had to purchase bar soap and toilet paper. We were disappointed that the grill available was so tiny and in poor condition. We would suggest that the owners consider replacing the mattress in the master bedroom. After the first night of less than restful sleep we flipped the mattress. This did not solve the problem. Since we had come for rest and relaxation, we were disappointed with our accomdations.

The home exceeded our expectations. It was spacious and open plan and very tastefully furnished. It was equipped with everything we needed to fufill our needs. The villa was less than 5mins from a supermarket and places to eat and about 10mins to Ft Myers beach. The pool area was large and with lovely views over a lake.

No-one to greet us or explain fundamentals, such as keypad door operation; washing machine and dryer usage or location of re-cycling waste for collection.
It would also have been nice to know that you had to provide your own soap, toilet paper, kitchen towels and other basics, before arriving.
Beds were a little uncomfortable and well used.
Apart from this, we really enjoyed the stay and would certainly consider doing it again.
Apart from this, it was a very

Great Time in Fort Myers
Left on 01/13/2011 for a stay in December 2010 | Christine
It was a pleasure dealing with Universal vacations. They made it so easy when we had to check in. We arrived extremely late in the night and we had received instructions in a lockbox in obtaining access to the property. When we finally arrived at the property we were happy to see that it was nice and clean. The next day we went to check in and it was fairly late in the day. We had not been hounded to come in to check in earlier and pay our balance. Universal vacations made booking and check out very easy and we really appreciated that.
Our favourite restaurant was Bonefish and our least favourite restaurant was Cheesecake factory (a real disappointment on New Year's Eve
The shopping was excellent. We enjoyed shopping @ the outlet malls ...such good deals.
Overall our experience was very good and would hope to book through Universal Vacations on future trips.

I need not have worried. We arrived at the rental office at 2200hrs after a 3hr drive from Orlando International airport. The keys to our property were exactly where we were told they would be !!. Clear instuctions attached enabled us to quickly locate our property. The house was excellent and in a truely stunning location overlooking a lake. No need for alarms/security bars across the patio doors as the area was quiet and the neighbours very friendly. Universal Vacations allowed us to register (req by law) at a time and place that was suitable to us, clearly demonstrating their professional customer focus. We had an outstanding time whilst at this property, excellent nearby beaches, Islands of Sanibel and Captiva only a short drive away. If you want to be more adventurous then why not go kyaking in the Everglades !!.

Left on 01/06/2010 for a stay in December 2009 | PJO123
We stayed at this property over the holidays and absolutely loved it! While we appreciated many of the amenities provided, we must be honest and admit that we do feel the home could have been cleaner (cobwebs in the living room, hair in the bathrooms, and crumbs in the kitchen cabinets/drawers) and shouldn't have had ripped screen panels on the pool cage. These issues should have been noted and addressed prior to guest arrival. Other than that, this is a phenomenal vacation home with beautiful views and a very relaxing atmosphere. We definitely see ourselves returning here year after year provided the house is better prepared and maintained for guests next time we visit.
Excellent accomadation and location

The house was fantastic - exactly what we needed to unwind and relax after Disney. In a small community, the neighbours were friendly.
Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach are lovely locations and the amenitites are great. The Publix at the bottom of the street was great, as was the array of restaurant and take-away menus in the house.
We will definitely be back - although the writings in the guest book worried me a little as they referred to an Alligator in the lake. We did not spot anything, but it did worry me.

This was a great rental. House was nicely furnished. Pool was great, loved the view of the water. Close to restaurants and shopping. Only minutes away to Sanibel Island. Hated to leave!
