There are not enough adjectives to describe how wonderful it was to stay with Donna and her little spot right near the highway, literally all directions of the beaches. I even want to stress that point a bit: Donna's spot is SO conveniently placed in the world of Fort Myers, getting anywhere and everywhere was a breeze!
Even before I got there, Donna and I were communicating and she was so open about accommodating my travel needs, and never made me to feel pushy or annoying for contacting her before I was even in her home, and I knew just heading into this vacation it was going to be special.
When my boyfriend and I finally made it to Fort Myers and her abode, it was even better than the pictures, and frankly are paltry in comparison to what you actually get. A picturesque drive down winding, quiet streets lined with green palm trees and coconut trees; gorgeous homes surrounding either side of you; and a soft little canal in the back. Everything looked like a picture on a postcard. Do be mindful of the potholes.
The house we got to stay in was also better than what we thought: quaint kitchen with very up-to-date appliances (even better than my own actually); bed in a little nook leading out to the lanai; spacious lanai with amazing, serene, views of the water and canals that snake through Florida; large personal shower and bathroom; living room with a more than adequate tv (modern vizio).
Donna joked that she likes to spoil her guests, and spoil us she did with a packet of suggestions of places to go and see, reclining beach chairs, two large umbrellas for that glaring sun, and two large beach towels for our use. I was lamenting having to buy all those things before I traveled down, extra expenses, and it was just so nice to have these "spoils" supplied for us and our vacation, allowing us to actually have a relaxing beach vacation.
I've stayed in a few Airbnb's, and the openness, sweetness, and genuine desire to be the Superhost she is, makes this one of the best places I've had the pleasure to stay at. I fully intended to stay with Donna again in the future, and am already trying to plan my next trip down.
