“Location and privacy a big plus”
Reviewed November 12, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed at the Cottages of Paradise Point just last week. There are a few cottages to choose from, we stayed at the "Island Cottage," the light green option 2nd from the beach. We are a young married couple traveling with 2 small children (ages 3 and 4).

Location: The location of these cottages was excellent, both in relation to the beach and to Times Square (the active part of Ft. Myers beach). Although not all cottages are directly waterfront, all have a small partial ocean view and are within steps of Ft. Myers beach once outside. There was an extremely large sandy area to enjoy in private prior to reaching the public beach and water. The cottages were about a 15minute walk to Times Square, even with a 3 and 4 year old. Although we didn't do it every evening, it was definitely doable and we used Times Square ice cream as an excuse to make the trip.

Privacy: There are lots of options for beachfront stays on Ft. Myers. We were looking for something more private than a high-rise and very close to the beach (in case a child had a meltdown, we didn't want to deal with it in a hotel lobby, up an elevator, etc). The cottages are small, quaint, and private, and as I mentioned, with ridiculously easy beach access.

Price: The price was slightly higher than other high-rises or places just across the road, but the cost was definitely worth the privacy and convenience. We didn't want to trek a family across a busy street every time we wanted to go to the water, and we didn't want to take an elevator 15 floors up each time we forgot to bring the sunscreen.

Amenities: Cottage was small and quaint, all basic necessities provided for. On site laundry, multiple TVs, and wifi. Small pool accessible to all cottage residents which was fine to dip our kids in but we didn't use much.

Overall: Overall a great place to stay with a family. We were extraordinarily pleased with the proximity, quality, and privacy of the beach in front of these cottages. Cottages were cute and clean. Other guests were friendly. This would be a great option for families with small children, or large multi-family groups traveling together who want to be close to each other but also space to themselves.

Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is absolute paradise! We were here 2 years ago and just had to come back. Planning new trip for 2016. The cottage has been renovated since 2012 and is superb for 2 adults and 3 children. This time the kids used the pool and enjoyed that very much!

“Amazing Place!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Another wonderful stay at Paradise Point, this time in the Island Cottage, for Memorial weekend. There is no better location if you want peace.
Everything is kept very clean, and Dennis, as usual, the best! I wouldn't change a thing.
What a wonderful weekend we had! Just a great experience- every year. We are already looking forward to our next stay in July at the Coconut Cottage.
