  • Dana W. – Sunset Cottage (Apr 2022) Nice stay – Just my husband and I for a week! Cozy space for 2 people
  • Dan D. – Sunset Palace (Apr 2022) Cozy and near the action in FMB. Great location. Ideal for a couple without kids. It’s a tight fit for a family, but we had a great time and would recommend it.
  • Steve G. – Sunset Cottage (Mar 2022) A wonderful place in a perfect location for a couple to enjoy themselves. So much to do within walking distance yet in a very quiet area. We loved it! Thanks for a really nice stay.

  • Jenny S. – Sunset Cottage (Mar 2022) This location is excellent. Close to Times Square. Owner very responsive to any issues. We are excited to return next year!
  • Patti L. – Sunset Palace (Feb 2022) Location was close to Times Square but far enough away to have space on the beach which was right across the street. Having access to the water behind us was good for putting in a kayak. It was great to have a pool and spa too! Owner was great to correspond with and took care of any problems promptly.
  • Melody T. – Sunset Cottage (Feb 2022) We stayed in a lovely old Florida pink house! Super clean. Maybe a 1000 feet from the ocean. Really close to times square. Walked down every night for cocktails and live music. Loved it!
  • Gregory E. – Sunset Cottage (Jan 2022) We really enjoyed our stay, the location is amazing. We were able to walk to Times Square and many restaurants and bars. Just a very short walk to the beach. We will stay there again.
  • Ray – Sunset Palace (Nov 2021)  Quiet quadplex, responsive hosts, easy to cross the street to the beautiful beach! Five stars!
  • Barbara – Sunset Cottage (Nov 2021) Everything you need!  Location and home are excellent absolutely no complaints! Host was the best we have dealt with on our many travels- highly recommend!
  • Paula – Sunset Cottage (Nov 2021) Perfect location.  The location of the property was the main reason for renting. It’s a short walk to shops and restaurants. The beach is just steps away. The pool and spa are located across the street at the owners other property. Beach amenities were nice – towels & chairs. The lower unit shower is very small but was functional. Overall a good stay with a great location.
  • Jose – Sunset Cottage (Aug 2021)  Very conveniently located to all that Fort Myers beach has to offer.
  • Andrew – Sunset Cottage (July 2021) Property was clean and close to beach and restaurants. Five Stars!
  • Jill – Sunset Palace (July 2021) Amazing Vacation!  My family and I had an amazing stay at this VRBO. Home was very clean, nicely decorated and well stocked with everything you could need on your vacation. The beach is a quick walk across the street and the pool was an added bonus my kiddo really enjoyed. The location of this property is perfect as it is walking distance to many restaurants and stores. Brian was super helpful and responded quickly to any of our needs.
  • Ginger – Sunset Cottage (June 2021)  It was great for two girls friends needed some beach time! Super close to the beach! Close to Times Square, shopping and restaurants. The pictures were spot on. Also having beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc, was a huge bonus!
  • Jeff – Sunset Cottage (May 2021)  They have everything you need for a fun vacation.
  • Kimberly – Sunset Palace (May 2021)  This was a great find for a last minute getaway for my sisters birthday. Location was perfect, the property was just as described. Would definitely rent this property again.
  • Shelly – Sunset Palace (May 2021) Sunset Palace Unit 2 – it was the BEST! Minutes away from everything! But, far enough away to have peace and relaxation. Walking distance to Times Square and all the restaurants and shopping. Don’t need a car and perfect access to the beach right across the street. The house supplies everything even beach equipment, chairs, umbrellas, floats and coolers. They made it so convenient and thought of everything. Would rent here every time!
  • Bernice – Sunset Cottage (March 2021)  Everything about our stay was fabulous! Wrap around porch was a big hit! Happened to meet Brian, the owner, and truly enjoyed our conversation. He even took the time to show us through his other property when we inquired. This place is a true gem!
  • Gayla – Sunset Cottage (March 2021)  Perfect place for two people! The place was clean, everything was provided such as beach chairs, beach towels, floating, coolers and the location was excellent! The ceilings are a tad low, but we knew that before booking… We’ll definitely be staying there again!!
  • Scott – Sunset Cottage (Feb 2021) Clean little getaway very close to the beach! Perfect for a couple. Would rent again in a heartbeat!
  • Penny – Sunset Palace (Feb 2021)  Great place!! We had such a great vacation! This was in a great location and had everything we needed! Thanks for everything and we hope we can return soon!
  • Sue – Sunset Palace (Jan 2021)  Renting this property was a great experience. Great location, close to everything, the beach and Time Square where the restaurants, bars, and shops are. We met the owners and they were very nice people and we are going back next year. The rental is as pictured on VRBO.
  • Matthew – Sunset Palace (Dec 2020)  Excellent from start to finish. A+ accommodation. Pool/hot is a bonus. I requested additional parking for one night and it was not a problem. I would stay here again.
  • John – Sunset Cottage ( Nov 2020)  Good Experience. We enjoyed our stay in the lower unit and it suited our needs.
  • Shawn – Sunset Cottage (Oct 2020)  Fall Break Disaster – After learning the day before we were supposed to fly down the FL our original booking was not available (cue frantic property search) I contacted Brian to confirm availability. Brain responded almost immediately (cue superhero montage) and confirmed this property was available, and ready to be rented. This cottage is within walking distance to everything. Perfect location- close to the beach, bars and restaurants. Beds are comfortable and the entire house was clean. The lower level apartment was a bit tight due to the low ceilings, as both my husband and I are over 6’ tall-but thankfully all the members of our group were not as tall. An added bonus were the beach chairs, towels, carts and coolers available for use. Really helped limit the need to over pack! We did not use the pool across the street, but we did go check it out, quite small for the amount of people who could possibly be using it, but who needs a pool when there’s an entire ocean to enjoy. The hot tub on the upper level was utilized on cooler rainy days, so that came in handy! We would definitely book here again. Brain was a wonderful – quick to respond and even allowed late check out as our flight didn’t leave until 6pm that evening.
  • David – Sunset Cottage (May 2020)  Loved every minute!  The Sunset Cottage is the perfect getaway! Steps from the beach and walking distance to the shops and restaurants. The cottage itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Brian was easy to contact and responsive. We will definitely rent his place again!
  • Chanda – Sunset Cottage Lower (Mar 2020)  Nice little spot. We felt this spot was a great place for a smaller family. We enjoyed it very much. Shower was quite small, but what are you going to do about that. Not got for tall people because the ceiling was very low. We are shorter, so we were good. Overall we had a great spot and far enough away from the big spring break scene.
  • Constance – Sunset Cottage (Feb 2020)  Suns Out, Funs Out!  Excellent location! Steps away from beach and short walk (less than 5 minutes) to Times Square!
  • Chad – Sunset Palace (Feb 2020)  Beach Days!  The property was as advertised, clean and a great location to the beach and Times Square! Brian was very responsive to all communication. Overall a good experience!
  • Christina – Sunset Cottage (Feb 2020)  Delightful beach cottage.  Just 100 steps from the beach. Everything you need for your stay and the beach. Private and quite location with easy access to shops and restaurants.
  • Kari – Sunset Palace (Feb 2020)  Amazing location, clean, and comfortable!  This property is in a such a great location. Just across the street from the beach and walking distance to tons of restaurants and shopping. The unit itself was recently renovated and very nice and clean inside. We would absolutely stay here again! To top it all off, Brian is extremely responsive with any questions I had which was a great added bonus.
  • Lisa – Sunset Cottage (Feb 2020)  Perfect!  This cottage is so nice and clean. The location is perfect and the hot tub only enhances the beach experience. Would definitely stay here again!
  • Nancy – Sunset Palace (Feb 2020)   Great location and house.  The apartment is in a great location and close to time square and restaurants. The interior was clean, updated, and the bed is comfortable. We used the community beach chairs and walked to the beach a couple of times. The owner is very quick to respond with any questions or concerns. I would recommend staying here.
  • Thomas – Sunset Cottage Lower (Jan 2020)   A great beach retreat!  It is a great location. Walking distance to everything. Very beautiful décor and well equipped. Yes. Doorways a little low, my husband is 6’1” and it was a minor inconvenience ducking a little, but we knew this going in.. hot water has quite low pressure but, again minor issue. (UPDATE – water pipes have been updated and replaced)   Overall it was an awesome place with every beach item you could want. Chairs, toys, and more. We would stay here again.
  • Kelly – Sunset Cottage (Jan 2020)   Beautiful. The property location is perfect. The deck and three separate seating areas was wonderful. Had everything you need for the beach, though the chairs have seen better days they certainly were fine. Hot tub was a nice touch. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. This rental is clean, up to date and in the best location. You will not be disappointed renting this unit.


Sunset Cottage


Kimberly – Nov 2019  “A wonderful and very clean place to stay while your in Ft. Myers Beach FL. Would stay there again for sure, I give it 5 stars. This little beach house had everything we needed and had hoped for. So thumbs up for this beach house.”

Mirfie – Oct 2019  “Great location and a short walk to the beach. Everything you need for the beach is in the basement. Nice hot tub and deck to relax.”

Jacqueline – Aug 2019  “Lovely beach house in perfect location so close to beach & Times Square Very clean with extra amenities such as beach chairs & beach towels Brian was quick to respond to any of my questions or concerns I would definitely recommend and hope to return”

Shannon – Apr 2019  “Easy access to the beach and a big selection of items that made our beach experience awesome…chairs, beach umbrella & towels, sand toys for my grandson, and a sand friendly cart to haul it all down to our favorite beach spot. The division between upper & lower living spaces was perfect! My daughter & her hubby had their own space, and my MIL, hubby, & 4yo grandson had our own space. Brian’s place was clean and accurately described. We’d definitely stay here again!”


Louise – May 2019  “This is a fantastic property. Brian, the owner, answered all my questions extremely quickly and our deposit was returned within a week of leaving. The house is in a great location and the house couldn’t have been better equipped, the range of beach equipment was the best I’d ever had in a rental. We will definitely be booking again the next time we go to FMB.”


Matt – May 2019  “Brian’s cottage by the water was an amazing place to stay right on the beautiful beach of Ft. Myers. From the moment we walked in we were amazed at how clean and beautiful the place really was. If there were any questions or concerns about the house, Brian always answered our phone calls immediately and fixed it as soon as possible. Overall a fantastic place to stay with family or friends, can’t wait to stay here again”


Amy – May 2019  “Awesome location and really nice to have the bikes to use”

Kailee – Apr 2019  “We had a blast! The condo was great, very clean, full kitchen, and literally not even a minute from the beach! We will be back!”

Julie – March 2019  “We stayed a week at Sunset Cottage, upper level. The house was super clean and decorated beautiful. It was in a great location, walking distance to Times Square. The house has a washer and dryer, with tons of beach toys, beach chairs and towels. I met the owners and they were super nice. I would definitely stay here again.”


Jim – March 2019  Lower Villa – “Was very clean, comfortable place. Location perfect, the only thing is that as someone over 6’ tall, the ceiling was quite low as well as the doorways. Was not a game changer but might be for someone over 6’2.”


T.E. – February 2019  “Sunset Cottage was exactly as described on VRBO. It is very well taken care of and it shows. Everything was explained in detail before we arrived. The bonus was the available beach chairs, umbrellas, towels and bikes. Our only suggestion would be to provide extra garbage bags and toilet paper unless we were expected to buy those. That could be easily clarified in the email. It was an easy walk to the beach from the back and an easy walk to Times Square from the front. Great to have a dedicated parking space too! We enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again.


Alanna – February 2019  “Located in the best location on Fort Myers Beach, this unit offers fab beach access, plenty of beach accessories and ground level entrance. Once you’re here, you don’t need a car. Walk, bike or take the free trolleys. Super! Honestly, I was worried about renting a ground level unit. Humidity, bugs, who knows? Brian’s done a great job to keep this place spotless and fresh. A pleasant, beach themed decor and a well-equipped home makes a great base. Being a ground unit, the ceilings are low, so beware if you are 6′ or taller. A dehumidifier runs near the sitting area, which is fairly constant but something to consider if you’re using the comfortable sofa bed. We had a great stay here, and my mom is ready to come back.”


Kristin – February 2019  “Fantastic stay! Perfect location on less busy north end, but easy walk to Times Square & convenience store. The free Tram stops nearby if you would rather ride & go further south. The trolley also stops nearby & both Uber & Lyft were quick to respond when we went across the bridge. The kitchen is very well stocked & has new appliances, including toaster & coffee maker. The unit was roomy & comfortable. The deck has plenty of seating & you can see the ocean from it. The towels & coolers in the basement came in handy & there was an assortment of beach chairs & toys as well. It’s a great place & location!! Definitely want to come back!”


Helen – January 2019   “nice cottage, 1 minute to beach.Very clean,good appliances,modern decor.”


Beth – January 2019   “The place was very nice. Clean. Close to the beach. Lots of seating outside, which we really love to do. Nice organizers in the closets to maximize space. We really enjoyed staying here, would definitely come back.”


Ranee – December 2018  “We loved this place. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Nicely decorated, stocked with the essentials. The bikes beach chairs, umbrellas, grill and washer and dryer are all a plus. Thank you and would highly recommend to others. Deck and outside sitting great. The hot tub was also awesome at night. Beach towels!!!! Location 75 feet to beach was great. Time square a short walk!!!!!”


Amy – November 2018    “I really enjoyed my stay here! From the easy access to the private beach, to the hot tub and charming & well-decorated villa, and the couple of blocks’ walk to Times Square – it was perfect. Access to beach towels, sand chairs and umbrellas was an added bonus. The owner was a pleasure to work with and always responded very quickly when I had questions. I hope to be able to stay here the next time I’m at Fort Myers Beach.”


Maria – October 2018    “Loved the bright beachy feel of this cottage. It’s comfortable and well-equipped with everything needed for an enjoyable stay. Appreciated the large thirsty bath & beach towels! One suggestion I have is to provide more hooks (either over-the-door hooks or hooks mounted to the wall or on a decorative paddle/oar) for hanging damp bathing suits and damp bath & Beach towels. We love vacationing in the Fort Meyers Beach area. Lots of fun places to eat and hang out!”


Donna – October 2018   “This is a lovely home with all the amenities you could ask for. It included beach towels, chairs, umbrella, cooler, beach cart and toys for the kids. A very short walk to the beach and the downtown area. The home was nicely decorated and very clean. The beds were very comfortable. Would highly recommend.”

Danielle – Sept 2019   “A couple friends and I were in town for a game at Kroger field. We chose this house primarily because of location, as it is very convenient to downtown. The house is a good size, 3 large bedrooms so everyone had plenty of space. 2 bathrooms was so helpful when everyone was getting ready at the same time. Quiet neighborhood, we had no issues at all. I thought the honor bar was a nice touch, especially the fact it was stocked with some local beers too. We had plenty of toiletries, towels, linens, and the place was very clean. Would stay here again next time in Lexington if it’s available.”

Stephen  October 2018  Comfortable three bedroom two bath home near the backside of the arena. A few things within walking distance to eat/shop. About a 1 mile walk to city center or a short cab ride. All beds were comfortable and house was very clean. Plenty of additional linens if needed. Excellent hospitality by the host. They leave lots of information on where you can go to eat and what is nearby. Also very nice touch with complementary soda and water in the refrigerator and also some other items for purchase at a very reasonable price. That was convenient as my flight was delayed and I didn’t get in till very late at night when everything was closed. My siblings and I had a great time I would recommend this home.

The description and photos of house were accurate and Brian was always quick with a response to our questions, especially appreciated that in our contacts before we arrived. And the closeness to downtown was perfect.

The interior is very cute and nicely decorated, the bedrooms are large and we thought the beds we’re very comfortable. The location was perfect for us for walking to downtown. We would stay here again and would recommend to others.
Ashley  May 2018  The space was perfect! Big enough for our group of six, Cute area with lots of restaurants and things within walking distance.

The check in and check out was so easy and communication was excellent! I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone and will be staying again for future trips. The street noise is a little loud because you are on a busy street but nothing that would stop me from going back !
