Thank you for your charming review. It's our highest satisfaction to hear that our guests enjoy our little paradise.
Hope to welcome you again!
We stayed at the Pyramids in Florida for the first time for the month of January. We were greeted by the friendly staff and stayed in a unit adjacent to the pool. The unit was clean and the furniture and appliances seemed to be fairly new. They welcomed our dog Lizy and we enjoyed our stay very much.
Most of the attractions in Fort Myers were within a comfortable drive. We would certainly return.
We are happy to read that you had a good time in our small paradise, we will always try to keep this oasis nice for you .Gerti and the Pyramids in Florida team.
Pyramid Village is difficult to describe, but easy to recommend. it's a concept that very few who haven't at least seen pictures of the "village" can imagine. when i tell of my 2 month winter vacation in the florida pyramids, the response is often, "you stayed WHERE in a WHAT, and WHY??? so, it's worth at least a short stop-over so that you can flip-out your friends!
my decision to stay here was based on their acceptance of pets, reasonable price, proximity to airport, warmth of the sun in winter, and the novelty of living in a pyramid. at the entrance to the property one is greeted by a large bust of Mozart behind which lies a short street flanked by parking spaces, palm trees, a mixture of vegetation, bright white pyramids made of concrete and glass. add the white "romanesque" statues, colored glass globes and worn stone benches and other miscellaneous cultural objects and you begin to feel the somewhat mystical, relaxing, and soothing ambiance.
then, especially if fortunate enough to be greeted by Gertie, that impression is intensified by her care-free energy, friendliness, happy and helpful nature. all is well. she was the light and soul of the village during my time there. gertie and her "family" of workers saw that every reasonable need for a comfortable stay was met and that every day one felt welcome.
during my two months, i lived in two different pyramids, identical except for minor interior design and decorating details. each provided enough furniture to be comfortable, perhaps a bit worn or not of the best quality, but comfortable. it is afterall, a house in the sand, designed for ease of upkeep and lots of wear and tear. the feng shui elements both inside and outside became more apparent over time and often left me scratching my head until i learned of their intent. . everything that i needed for my stay was provided plus a few extras; from bug spray and sunscreen to flat screen tv's and blue-ray disc players. the kitchens were well stocked with basics, plenty of linens were provided as well as cleaning supplies, iron and hair dryer. washer and are dryer european sized so i often hung wash on a drying rack outdoors. both front and back patios had seating for at least six, plus lounges for sunning and beach towels for drying off after a soak in the "hot" tub or spring lake with fountain. a large bust of Goethe keeps watch over the common area. each pair of pyramids is adjoined at one wall, and the two slightly off-set from the other to provide privacy and an unencumbered view of the "beachy" area and palm treess. since two walls are nearly floor to ceiling glass, the small lizards provided entertainment and exercise for my cat as she followed their every move from inside.
i thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be returning next year for a physical and spiritual replenishment like the one i home with this year. pyramid village is neither perfect nor equivalent to a 4 star hotel, but it's uniqueness, overall casual atmosphere, amenities and affordability make it a great value for someone who doesn't need to be on the beach or in a resort, just about anything a vacationer could need including a biker bar and nail salon can be found within walking distance, or not much farther. golf, beach, theaters, parks and other attractions or recreation are within a few minute's drive. estero's fabulous coconut point mall where one can find restaurants, retailers and residences plus a theater and fountain lake view in is minutes south on route 41 .
This was our second year staying at Pyramid Village and we enjoyed it as much this year as we did last year. The condos come with front and back patios, gas grills, fully equipped [though small] kitchens, linens, washer & dryer. All condos have 2 bedrooms, some have 2 bathrooms, some only 1. The upstairs room not only is a bedroom, it also has a couch and tv area with either a larger closet area or a bathroom. Our son, daughter-in-law & granddaughter came to visit for 5 days and really enjoyed our place, also. About 15 - 20 minutes to Ft Myers Beach; we swam in pond/pool on property.
I spent a week here with my husband and 15-month old child. The place was nicely equipped with everything we needed and more, from everything like laundry detergent to beach towels and a cooler. They provided a portable crib (pack-and-play), a high chair, and a gate for the stairs for our baby. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We didn't encounter any problems with the place. There are two porches to watch the sunrise and sunset. There were sand toys for my son to play with in the play area. The curtains were thin so the rooms were still somewhat lit at night, for those that need darkness it might be a problem. The wi-fi connection was slow/poor.
