Hotels have long been the go-to accommodation for traveling, but there are so many other options to consider when staying in Southwest Florida. There’s nothing wrong with staying in a hotel, but if you’re looking to add a little flair to your vacation, or make your stay feel a little bit more like home, take a look at all the alternatives while you’re visiting The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel.
Feel right at home in a cozy cottage with all of the amenities and privacy of your house, (except your house probably doesn’t have a beautiful beach right outside). Enjoy having the whole place to yourself and the ability to cook some awesome beach grub in your own kitchen.
In addition to having your own space, condo rentals will provide you with access to community amenities. Many condo complexes have things like pools or game rooms or other activities you can partake in.
Vacation home rentals offer short-term or long-term renting options, allowing you to stay for weeks or even months at a time. Can you say summer vacation? Or spring break? Or any time, really?
Jump in on the latest trend and rent a tiny home in the colorful and quaint town of Matlacha. Each home includes a full kitchenette with microwave, fridge, induction cooktop and coffee maker. These tiny homes are part of the Tiny Village with amenities that include BBQ grill, dock, deck and kayak launch. Walk to nearby art galleries, waterfront restaurants and bars, and watch the sun set over this colorful waterfront town.
If you’re looking to rough it (or not-so-rough it in the case of the RV) and stay by the beach, check out some of the campgrounds and RV parks in the area. Most “beachfront” campsites are a little back from the beach to protect wildlife like sea turtles and nesting birds, but you’ll still be only a few feet from the shore at the fraction of the price of hotels or other accommodations.
If you’re looking to shake things up during your vacation, consider looking into houseboat rentals. For lovers of the on water experience, there are various houseboat rental companies on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel. The hardest part is choosing which island or part of the region you want to sail to each day!
