    We have some serious problems with Fun in the Sun Rentals. After done a pre-payment of >8000 USD, we try to contact Erik by email, phone an fax - but now answer from him.
    I tried to cancel our reservation - no answer. The house we booked is no longer in Eriks portfolio......
    We still fight for money!

    Dine Early

    by AnnS Written Oct 26, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Life on Fort Myers Beach runs on a different timetable from many places in Europe. People get up early, go to bed early, leave the beach early... and dine early.

    Most restaurants on the island close by 10pm so make sure you leave plenty of time if you're going out to dinner.

    This has caught us out in the past but thank goodness there's a McDonalds on the island for emergencies!

    HUGE Portions

    by AnnS Written Oct 24, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When dining in any restaurant the portions are huge, compared with what us Brits are used to. I've stopped having starters because they in themselves are complete meals. Most restaurants offer you a 'doggy bag' in which to take home anything you haven't eaten but if you're like me, the thought of eating it later is not appealing. On the plus side, you're always much too full for a sweet so it helps keep the calories in check.

    When it rains it pours

    by tpangelinan Updated Sep 11, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While driving down to F.M.B. it was raining but not to bad. Found the realtor and got in the house, then the down pour started! Well we thought it would stop at some point but it kept up for hours. (Photo# 1) We started getting a little worried because the pool was filling up fast, then it crested over the side and on to the patio! At this point we had a large waterfall coming down from the roof over the patio into the pool! (Photo# 2) I'm thinkin' hope this place has good drainage because at this point the water has worked it's way up to about 2 feet from the house! (Photo# 3). Well the water never got any closer so the builder knew what he was doing! The rain finally stopped many hours later, the pool was still very full so we let the kids have a ball which helped to bring the level back near normal. It went on to be a great trip!

    The traffic

    by tpangelinan Written Apr 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oh my! The traffic here is SOOO SLOOOOW MOVING! In some parts in Estero Blvd. the speed limit is 15MPH, so don't think you can just buzz right through, not gonna happen. It will take at least 20 minutes or better to get from the edge of Lovers Key to the San Carlos bridge. So plan ahead for this.

    Behave yourself

    by tpangelinan Written Apr 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Highly suggest you behave yourself because the polica are ever present! They are on bike cycles, motor cycles, cars, SUV's, feet. So if you are the loud or trouble making type, be on your best behavior or you will meet them personally. They like to hang out under the bridge in packs.

    Big Bombs!

    by tpangelinan Written Apr 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pelicans in flight can be graceful or is could be a fright! These birds are huge beggers from the fisherman. They do get fed by fisherman who have caught a rather small fish, it may wind up in a pelicans mouth. So beware of LARGE bird droppings, may we suggest a hat or umbrella!
