Very Good

“Wonderfull accomodation, perhaps wie will See us again.”

Reviewed 25 Apr 2017

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit im Widgeon Cottage. Das Frühstück auf dem Steg war ein super Start in den Tag. Die Pelikanschwärme, Delphine, bunten Vögel um uns herum... Soooo schön!, Strand ist gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, diverse Beachutensilien und Buggy für den Transport vorhanden, alles problemlos. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten recht mager, Publix in der Nähe ist recht teuer, 15 Minuten zum nächsten Einkaufszentrum. Ist aber ok. Unser Vermieter Dan war super freundlich, sehr sehr hilfsbereit und fast kaum zu bemerken. Tolle Unterkunft für individuellen Aufenthalt.

“Great place and very friendly owners”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2016

We had a great six days at Dan and Colleens place. The place is very cosy and tastefully decorated. Nice little pool area and in walking distance from the beach. Also we got to feed Peebles everyday - a tame heron that would visit to get some cured ham. Lots of good restaurants nearby and plenty of shopping in Fort Myers as well. Whats not to like? Well, some of the interior could do with an update - but really, it didn't bother us. All in all a great place to hang out - highly recommended.

“A great place to build memories”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2014

Our family spent a month at Widgeon Cottage and it was exactly as it was described. Our daughters/son in laws came with their children and the home and location was perfect. A great pool, lots of water/sand toys, close to the beach and two guest bedrooms that suited them well. Our master bedroom was separate from the other bedrooms and gave some privacy for the family. We loved our time at Widgeon Cottage and we loved all the wildlife that we experienced each day. A dolphin came to visit one night in the canal behind the house along with pelicans and osprey. Great birding in this area. We'd highly recommend the property as the owner takes great care of it. Clean and well appointed.

“Family paradise away from frozen Chicago”

Reviewed 11 Feb 2014

Polar Vortex has hit Chicago and the perfect escape this year was our stay at Widgeon Cottage. This was our second time to stay at Widgeon, but this time having my 9 month old son there was unforgettable. Once again Widgeon Cottage lived up to all of our expectations. Any one who has children know the complexities of traveling with the little ones. The location of Widgeon Cottage takes care of those complex logistics by only being a short 5 minute walk to the beach, trolley stop being really close, and having all the niceties of home away from home. Staying at a hotel you always have to deal with the unknowns such as hotel staff and other people across hall and next door. Staying at Widgeon Cottage there is none of that worry. Having a pool, hot tub, and a deck next to a very quiet canal makes staying in at times not a bad decision. The cottage was again clean, spacious, luxurious, and beautiful. Michael even left out a playpen for our little one which was a very thoughtful and classy touch my wife and I would never get any where else. Widgeon Cottage is perfect for families and my family will be looking forward to many more vacations there.

“Quiet and private with everthing Fort Myers Beach has to offer c”

Reviewed 10 Feb 2014

This unit is spacious and well kept. We had all the comforts of home and more. It's situated along a canal with a wonderful deck, spa and pool. The property is quiet and relaxing even though it's just a couple blocks from the beech. we caught fish from the deck, watched dolphins swim by in the canal, and spent alot of time at the beech. But, for me the best thing of all was relaxing in the sunshine on the deck. It was wonderful and I hope to be back.

“Great place to relax and unwind!”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2013

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay that has it all this is it. Close to the gulf beach yet in a quiet neighborhood Widgeon Cottage was the perfect place for our family's vacation. The home is beautifully decorated to reflect the island, is well stocked with everything you need for fun in the sun, and the hot tub is great to unwind after the day.

“a beautiful place very near to paradise”

Reviewed 30 May 2013

After 2011, when we spend our honeymoon at Widgeon cottage, we came to that beautiful spot again in May 2013. Everything in the house was again well arranged, nothing´s missing. It´s a beautiful spot with no noise, ideal to get rid of all worrys of daily life. We loved to swim in the pool and enjoyed the heated spa in evening hours. The bbq is great to prepare a great dinner. The house is located just a short 5-minutes walk to the beach, which in our opinion is the best place in that area. Watch dolphins at the beach or in the rear bay, go swimming in the gulf or enjoy a cocktail at the Outrigger while watching the most beautiful sunset. We met Mike, who´s a nice and friendly guy, allways keen to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We say thanks for all, it was a very nice time and we would love to come again. We´ll see, never say never. :-) Mathias, Michaela und Marla from Hannover, Germany

“The most restful and relaxing place I have stayed.”

Reviewed 8 May 2013

I stayed at the Widgeon Cottage the first week of May 2013. It is a beautiful, well cared for property with all the amenities. I enjoyed coffee on the dock in the morning and relaxing by the pool in the afternoon. It is in close proximity to the beach for morning walks and beautiful evening sunsets. The owner provided wonderful restaurant suggestions that made for great meals out and all the kitchen supplies if you choose to eat in. A great place to vacation with your family or a quite retreat.

“Perfect location!!”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2013

Great size house for our family. Kids loved the pool and spa. We had a lot of fun fishing off the dock and enjoyed morning coffee there too. Location is convenient to everything. We especially liked the access to the south end of the island so we did not have to go through north end pier traffic every night. Mike was great to work with and so helpful even when we had questions during our stay.

“A wonderful cottage that enhanced our relaxing time in Fort Myer”

Reviewed 22 Jan 2013

Widgeon Cottage was the best choice for our stay in Fort Myers Beach. The cottage was spacious and very clean when we arrived. The landscaping and layout of the property gave a serene and relaxing ambiance. It was the perfect distance away from all the hustle of main square (which is a short and convenient trolley ride away). The privacy of having your own dock right right next to a canal was very enjoyable especially if you just want to relax in the sun without the hustle of the beach. The beach is only a short walk distance (about 2 mins) gives the location of the cottage a plus. Having your own kitchen gave us the choice of either eating in or out. The area the cottage was located was very quiet and peaceful. Overall you get more than you pay for when staying at the Widgeon Cottage.
