We had a perfect week at Widgeon Cottage. Colleen and Dan were discreetly helpful, the place is clean and has everything you would need.
Dan taught us to fish from the back of the house and also lent us kayaks.
To top it all the weather was perfect.
Really great week.

We just returned to Sweden after spending the last week of our vacation at Widgeon Cottage, Ft Myers Beach. And it was the hightlight of our trip! We enjoyed every second of it! The bicycle rides, kayaking alongside dolphins, relaxing in the pool, breakfast at the dock and much more!

The house was terrific, very clean and well equipped. And Dan what a host. Such an easy going, warm and welcoming person! Thank you for everything!

A great home away from home.
We just returned from 2 weeks @ Widgeon Cottage and our stay could not have been better. Dan & Coleen are terrific hosts. They live on the property and help and serve all your needs. They even hosted a Superbowl party for us while we where there.
This is a home away from home and all you need to bring is clothes & food.
This condo has a heated pool & spa,a fully furnished home and kitchen including a dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee pot, dishes , etc. 2 TVs,free WI-FI, barbecue grill, pool/beach toys & chairs, kyacks, fishing equipment, bikes, washer/dryers etc.
Located in a quiet residential area close to beach, restaurants,shopping,entertainment etc.
Great for seniors, family's, nature lovers, bird lovers (Ospreys,egrets, blue herons, pelicans, etc.)
This is our second year here and we are coming back next year.
We could not have found a better place and hosts to spend our vacation with .

“Great Cottage with Wonderful Pool and Hot Tub!”
Reviewed 16 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

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.
