“White sand and palm trees”

Reviewed 24 May 2012

Great location, well equipped and clean. We are a large group and really enjoy the fact that all couples have their own bedroom and bathroom. We love the ocean , but like the option of the pool when the beach gets too warm.

“Best family vacation ever.”

Reviewed 29 Feb 2012

Our family had no idea of what to expect when we rented this duplex over spring break. Ended up being the best family vacation ever. Kids can't wait to go back. The management company is easy to work with. I don't want to brag too much, then everyone will rent it away from me. Great place, great company equals great time. Money well spent.

“Great family time!”

We completely enjoyed our stay at Crane duplex(rented both sides) The personell were very friendly, informative and helpful from the beginning to the end.The location was close to things we needed but far enuf away too! The home was not the taj mahal which is not "us" but instead a friendly, comfortable, efficient place for all to enjoy, (including my favorite 4 legged kids)! The Pool and the beach out the back door, the Nature, and the magnificient sunrise, sunsets awating everyday! Outstanding! it was a long awaited family togetherness! I have no complaints, but I could of stayed longer!

“Best Family Beach House Vacation Rental”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2012

We rented the Crane Duplex with another family and couldn't have had a better vacation. The private beach is just steps for the unit and visible from the large row of windows at the back of the unit. We loved that the pool was located on the beach side of the unit. That way, it was easier to keep track of the kids. The pool was not huge, but big enough to satisfy the nine kids on our trip. The unit is older, but well kept and very spacious. It is located just a short walk from the Fort Meyers Beach Holiday Inn where we were able to sign up for water sports and visit the Sand Castle Contest. The owners were very attentive and checked in on us a few times to make sure everything was going well. We had a fabulous time!!!

“Great family vacation spot!”

Our family of 14 has stayed in Sun Palace Vacation rentals for a week each of the last 5 years. It is always a great experience--lovely beach and Ron always quickly responds if we have an issue. I would strongly recommend Fort Myers Beach and especially Sun Palace Vacation Rentals for a great vacation.

“Everything just great--as usual.”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this year. Everything went very well. We will be coming back next year. I believe this is the 5th or 6th time we have stayed there. I, myself, especially enjoy the wheelchair accessible feature of this condo. Gene

House was great. Everything close by Very clean and comfortable Loved everything about it The one thing I didnt like was not being able to sit outside on the deck with the lights on when it got dark.

“Great place Great time”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2009

We were 2 families on vacation together, with five kids between 6 and 10. They were free to come and go to the beach since we could watch them all the way. The pool was great to bring the kids back. The houses are very comfortable and very well equipped. And we even walked 3 blocks to the movies on a rainy day. The beach was very nice too. The low tide every afternoon brought all kinds of animals. We swam with the sting rays (small, but lots of them), dolphins swam only yards away from us, full of shells and conchs, and we even got a tiny octopus. It was great. The beach was all ours at all times. We also brought our Labrador. She had a great time, run on the beach and had fun. It is a great place for everyone.

“Our family had a wonderful time together on the beach.”

We did not receive any services while we were there. The home served our needs. However, we all thought it could use a little TLC. Blinds were askew in main dining area. Common areas needed fresh paint or stain in many places. I thought for the price it was not a good value. I was not happy that we were expected to strip beds, start laundry and dishes, put out garbage before leaving. I expected housekeeping to be able to take care of that after we left. The location was the best part, but I do not think we would rent this property again.

Response from the manager Dear Jean, Thank you for your review. We ask that our guests try and wash up the towels in the morning as they prepare to depart. The wash and dry process for towels is much longer than bed linens. (We supply the laundry soap). Turning the dishwasher on (we supply the soap), before you leave takes only a few minutes. The cycle takes over and hour and is a great help to the cleaning staff. Most weeks we are turning multiple properties over in 6 hours and ask guests for some easy assistance. I am sorry that you were inconvenienced. All of the Duplexes on Gulf Road will be receiving a decor facelift this fall.

“xclent vacation”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2009

We have been staying on the beach for 10 years and Crane South was by far the best we had ever had. We stayed for two weeks. It was comfortable and had all the amenities of home. It's on the wide portion of the beach (great sun and moon sets) but set far enough back from the sea to give us our own private piece of sand. It's also close to shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment (The Out Rigger and Holiday Inn Tiki Bars are an easy stroll on the beach to get to and the Publix Super Market is less than 1/2 a mile away). We loved it. We enjoyed our selves so much so this year we purcased our own house (Lazy Days)near by this spring and contracted Sun Palace to manage it for us. Ron and Judith and their staff were great host and made sure we were comfortable.

Response from the manager Thank-you Chris & Cheryl for trusting us to manage Lazy Days, which really is on the corner of Lazy Way & Easy Street. See web page for a photo. Cheers: Ron.
