Our Our stay at 136 primo was perfect.  The location was great with a  short walk to the downtown square area with all the shops & food a plus.  Very quite area, no issues with noise at all.  We would stay here again!
Re:  Primo Vacation Home
Lloyd & Karen H.

Our stay for the month of January was excellent.  The Condo was all it purported to be and more.  A couple of minor issues were resolved very quickly by your staff. Furnishings and kitchenware were first class and brand new. The view was unparalleled. I would recommend this unit to anyone.

I just wanted to drop a note and share about my experience during Thanksgiving week. The unit was absolutely awesome. There were 7 of us and we all had our own space, the unit was immaluate and stocked with all the needs for a week at the beach. Walking distance to the beach access was short and direct. You will not be disappointed by Distinctive Vacation rentals. You will enjoy and go back again. .

I want to drop you a note to tell you how much we really enjoyed our stay at 111 Bahia.  My family really enjoyed staying in this house and we want to sincerely thank the owners for letting us share their little piece of Paradise.  The pool was a great hit with everyone.  The beach was a very short walk.   The house was well appointed and so comfortable.  The decorations and furnishing showed a lot of attention to details….just a great vacation property overall.  We hope to come back again soon.  We highly recommend Distinctive Beach Rentals and this property in particular.

Rachid & Dawn M. – July 2014



We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your property. The house was perfect setting for our family. . . comfortable, casual, and lots of space. It was a nice setting away from the main traffic, but still accessible to the "night life."

Your staff were wonderful as we had a repair man come twice to the house for trivial things . . . the nicest guys ever. I will definitely recommend you to others who are looking to stay in Fort Myers Beach. Thank you for making wonderful spring break memories for my family.

Re: 113 Andre Mar

PS. You were right, Amy! When I arrived, I forgot all my troubles (at least for a little while). Your encouraging words meant a lot to me . . . you are a person that definitely goes above and beyond for customers. Thanks again for everything! Distinctive Beach Rentals rock!!!!




Thank you for your note. My wife and I loved the property!  We cannot imagine how you could have made our stay any more comfortable or pleasant.  The accommodation was perfect for us. Spacious, yet just right for two.  Thanks for your expert help in selecting a unit!  We'd love to stay here, again and won't think of renting again without consulting you, first. 

Kindest regards,

Thank you so much for your email.  My son and I had a wonderful time at this absolutely beautiful home!  The way the windows open to include the house in the great outdoors was unique and we took advantage of it.  The bird filled estuary, the little Marsh hare, the shells, the warm sun, the opening Olympics, the dogs (JB and Artie) next door, and especially time with my son made this memorable.  I would highly recommend 7964 and Distinctive Beach Rentals to anyone.

Re:  7964 Estero Blvd.


White Cap 203 was a wonderful condo and we had a great week.  Everything was great at the condo and it met our needs perfectly.  The view and beach access across the street was as good as we expected and there were restaurants and other services nearby to meet our needs.

We would recommend this unit and thanks again.

Thank you for the welcome home letter! We had a wonderful time at the Villa Del Mar. The condo we stayed in was beautiful and the view was breathtaking. We have many pictures we'd like to share, but with the holidays coming so quick will probably not get to sending them till late.  We are expecting a snowfall in the next day or two, our welcome home gift! Ha, ha. Oh 80 degree weather where did you go! We know.... it stayed in Florida!

We really have only good comments for everything about our stay. We can't think of anything that could have made our stay any nicer. The little welcome pack with the cooler, shirt, beach ball etc. was a nice touch. Thank you for handling our vacation plans and we hope to see you next year.

Re:  Villa Del Mar 402



We all had such a wonderful time and was very pleased with the vacation home.  It actually was nicer than the pictures showed on the VRBO.  The house was very clean and equipped with everything we needed, we didn't use the pool, but mainly because it was a little cool.  So again thank you for everything.

Re: 295 Mango


We would like to let you know that our stay was all that we could imagine it could be.  Your property is extremely well kept, convenient to everything you could possible need or want.  Grocery, shopping and entertainment is only moments away. Was able to get in some golf, close by at very reasonable prices and had a great day at the Thomas Edison Estate. We are very appreciative that we were able to be taken care of showing up one day early.  Thank You!  Would absolutely give a thumbs up to anyone wanting to come to Fort Myers Beach, to stay in your property and look forward to our next trip!!

Thanks for the wonderful vacation!

Re:  Villa Del Mar 303



I can’t begin to thank you for giving us the opportunity to rent your condo in Fort Myers. You have a beautiful condo. We had the greatest time and we are already talking about when we would like to go again. Thank you so much again.

We really had a super time at the condo, it was as described and we were very happy with its location. We only wish we could have stayed longer but this trip was just to unwind and relax. We will be checking with you later in the Fall with a view to spending a month or two , thanks very much for everything, all the very best to you and the staff there.

Re: Lovers Key Resort 908


Just wanted to drop you a note and say we had a great time at 390 Bayland, Ft Myers Beach. The house was everything we had hoped it would be. The view was fantastic. The owner was on site for a few days while we were there and he was very helpful with dining suggestions and accommodations. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and look forward to renting this location again.

Just a brief word to let you know how much we enjoyed our week at Villa Del Mar. We found the condo perfect for our needs. Thank you for your helpfulness.

C. Royse
Re: Villa Del Mar 402


We had a very good time on Ft. Myer's Beach and staying at 5167 Estero. The house worked quite well for our group. The interior while busy was entertaining and certainly carried the beach theme throughout the house. We enjoyed the hot tub more than we expected especially Tuesday after 5 hours on the back bay in kayaks with all the wind.
The location was also optimal for our family. If the teens and a 21 year old wanted to get towards Times Square they used our rented bikes or walked: therefore the mid-island location was not too far from Times Square for our group.
Floor plan, bedrooms, great room kitchen, internet and cable access with TVs in bedrooms besides the living room all were optimal for us.
If we have the same or slightly more in our party next time we will definitely consider 5167 Estero again. Or if we can get more of our grown children to join us next time we will ask that you find us a place that sleeps more people.

Re: 5167 Estero Blvd.


We enjoyed our stay at the house very much! The location was excellent, and the accommodations were comfortable, homey and well taken care of. I just wish that we could have stayed longer to enjoy the rental more - maybe next time!!!! Thanks, again, for everything!

Re: 136 Primo


What a great place. We were extremely happy with the condo and the amenities provided. We are considering a return next January. Thanks.

We have rented on the beach for many years, and your rental company far outshines any other.
Your attention to detail at the property, your customer service, and your unfailingly cordial staff
make your company special.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 280 Ostego, and would have booked for next year were it
not for our indecisive children! We will be in touch as soon as everyone figures out their schedule!

Hi! We rented a house in Fort Myers Beach from you, 110 Hercules Drive, and I just want to say THANK YOU!! We had a marvellous time there, the house was just perfect for us! The location was perfect, so close to the beach :) and we enjoyed the pool so much. Hopefully we will be back some day.

Re: 241 Randy Lane



We truly enjoyed our stay at LKR. The property is attractive, well maintained and enjoyable. The adjoining Flippers restaurant is convenient and serves excellent meals in a perfect waterfront setting. It was a great week!
....Thanks again to you & Distinctive for making our escape to the sun easy & memorable.
Best regards,

Re: Lovers Key Resort Condo



We had a wonderful relaxing stay during the month of February at 390 Bayland and look forward to returning soon. The home was exactly as described, very comfortable and offered amazing views of the bay from the screened deck off the main living area.

Re: 390 Bayland



Distinctive Beach Rentals did an awesome job for us as renters. The unit was first class, very clean and up to date. Everything was just as you explained to us in your emails pertaining to the lease agreement. Great Job.

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your rental at 7973 Estero. The house was great, nice and clean, good location as we like to go to Santini Plaza, and the pool was wonderful. Thanks again.

B. Skelton
Re: 7973 Estero Blvd.



This was a wonderful house with all the amenities of a five star resort! Loved it! Thank you. We would love to come again.

Re: 315 Mango Street



We just returned from our week's stay in this beautiful property. The home is equipped with everything you need to enjoy your vacation. The beach is a very short walk away, the street was nice and quite, and the heated pool just tops it. The home is nicely mildly decorated, the bedding was excellent, plenty of bath and beach towels. We would definitely return!

Re: 315 Mango



We loved our stay. The location of the villa was just perfect for our needs, (two grandparents, mum, dad, daughter age 3 and baby 3 months). ~We loved the heated pool in the back where we could watch our granddaughter swim whilst we ate breakfast. She spent most of the day in the pool! Backing onto the backyard canal was made for watching fish jump in the evening and even managed to get a hired boat up to the back dock!
Beach access was easy, just walked right across the road to the lovely peaceful beach where we went each day to watch the fabulous sun sets. (too hot to stay on the beach during the day!) We saw dolphins and any number of wading birds, egrets, sandpipers. The big Publix supermarket right next door supplied a great range of meat, seafoods, wine, as well as the essentials like nappies and formulae. This meant quick and easy shopping. We also appreciated the nearness of the medical centre when the baby was ill (he’s ok now)
The icing on the cake was the nearside of the superb Bayside Bistro located on the back bay just behind Publix with its wonderful deck and restaurant. Very child friendly with excellent food. We had two lovely meals out and it was great to walk there and not worry about the car. The trolley bus along Fort Myers beach was a novelty but the times too unreliable for commuting, but it made for a fun ride with an excited 3 year old who rarely goes on a “bus!” Great to have the contrast between busy Times Square and the quieter Lovers Key at the other end.
We appreciated very much the availability of beach chairs, umbrellas, buckets, spades, plenty of puzzles, books and toys as well as beach towels as well as the washing machine and tumble drier which was essential with a small baby. The layout of the villa meant there was plenty of room with two separate “sitting” rooms for mum and dad to read and granny to watch cartoons with grand daughter. Plus of course the bbq which was used every day!
We may well be back next year. We can highly recommend it. Also the efficient and prompt service from you guys Thanks!

Best wishes

Re: 5147 Estero Blvd.



This is a great house, especially with small children! The two pack & plays and kids sand toys were great! The house is a dream and looks to be the best rental in the neighborhood in this price range! The pool was beautiful and partially sunny (10AM-2PM) which is good to either get you to the beach or not get too much sun. The screened porch was incredible for breakfast with the sun shining through the palm trees! The beach access is at the end of the block and the trolley stop is there too which will bring you right to Times Square. This is the PERFECT house & location for a family vacation with smaller kids who don't have to be in the heart of Times Square. We hope to be back here again, but next time rent the whole house & bring more family or friends to experience paradise with us!

Re: 5566 Palmetto



Thank you! We had a very enjoyable stay. The condo was so spacious and beautiful, such a nice surprise! Since we rented sight unseen.

We took home many family "Christmas" memories! Full of smiles!

Thank you so much Amy and Angie for all of your assistance to assure our FABULOUS and INCREDIBLE stay at Lovers Key Resort. The views we were able to view ALL the area's fireworks on the 4th, right from our balcony! From this penthouse, we had watched dolphins and manatees daily. Also spectacular sunrises as well as sunsets from the living room! This unit epitomizes the Florida lifestyle! Thank you, again!

We had an amazing time in Ft. Myers Beach! The condo was perfect for us. Everything about our vacation experience was exceptional, and we would certainly come back again!

We had the one small problem with the vertical blind that fell down and the bathroom sink that backed up, but your people handled it quickly and efficiently the same day I called! Wonderful service! We think about our time there and we long to return already!

Thank you for following up.

Re: Estero Beach and Tennis


Just wanted to let you know that we had an enjoyable time and that we were very pleased with our rental. It really was just the right size, and has to be one of the cleanest places we have stayed in! It was most appreciated after long hours traveling to feel "right at home" as soon as we came in the door.
thank you and we will be sure to refer anyone that I know that maybe coming your way.
thank you!

We had a wonderful time at the condo. It was the best wheelchair accessible place we've ever found. The weather was great, all the people were great and the traffic was not nearly as bad as we had expected. We would love to come again for a month but I'm not sure that we will be able to do that. We will certainly think about it and reserve the unit before the end of the summer if it seems possible to go to Lover's Key Resort again.

I was extremely impressed with the units. They were very quiet. They must have been very well built and the roll in shower was perfect. Not a drop of water escaped the shower.

We really did enjoy Fort Myers Beach and the surrounding area.

Best regards,

Lovers Key Resort


Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time at Sand Caper 103. It was a beautiful unit and we really enjoyed our stay. It was so close to the restaurants and shopping across the street...even a bank...who'd of thought. We were serenaded every night by the Band at the Holiday Inn ...which was great. The Beach was fantastic. So we will definitely keep this in our minds for another trip. It was so easy just getting the key and everything went just so smoothly.

Thanks again.

Hi Amy,

I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time on our vacation. The house could not have been more perfect for our needs, and its proximity to the beach and Publix was fabulous. It made being on vacation with little kids a breeze. Thanks for helping us to have a great vacation.

Thanks, we just now got back into Denver during a blizzard.
We spent a week in New Orleans after leaving Ft. Myers Beach.
I'm glad that you are doing a follow up on our stay at the 6110 Court Street property.
This place along with your assistance was the "BEST" rental experience we have ever had....... My wife and I have rented in Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, New Orleans, Baltimore and San Diego. This residence allowed us the privacy and relaxed atmosphere to spend time with my ailing father and our other visiting family members.

I cant thank you and the property owners enough for working within our budget constraints.
Everyone that visited, fell in love with the place and of course the location.

We look forward to staying next January.

Hi Amy just wanted to let you know as we are ALL settled now....this place is Heaven.....I love everything about it....the King size bed is to die for. I haven't slept this well in I can't remember how long...must have a pillow top on it, but is is very nice. The pool is also nice day or night as now it seems to be adjusted just right, I love it.and want to thank you for your attention to our concerns about it... I really appreciate it as it makes us so much more comfortable as the pool was a big part of our decision to rent this really is a very nice home and I applaud the owners for their gift to us and our stay here in Fort Myers Beach. I am very comfortable and will definitely look after the place as if it were my own.....I appreciate all the attention you pay to making us happy here and we really are happy. Thank you very much and kudos to Rick as I am sure he is a part of it. Happy, happy, happy. You are the greatest and I have recommended your company to several people down here and in Canada also, hope you get some business from the recommendations, you really are the BEST we have come upon and look forward to many more years dealing with you folks for our rentals and our holidays away from Canada in the winter time.

  The condo was fabulous and we will certainly be returning. The idea of a discount enhances that thought. The location, view, and layout were perfect.

Thank you, Amy. We really enjoyed our stay. The Palm Harbor Club condo was a wonderful place for us - so much room and a great location. Thanks for suggesting it to us.

Thank you, Amy, for allowing us to stay at your cottage. We had a wonderful week at Ft. Myers and are already planning our visit for next year. We have stayed at several places, but yours had such an "at-home" feel, and was so well-equipped with just about everything we needed.

We "really" appreciated this. Thanks again and have a wonderful year!

I want to tell you that we were very happy with the rental property. We feel like you knew what we needed more than we did. Originally we thought the price was a little more than we had budgeted for but after talking with you we thought-what the heck, let's go for it. The accommodations were fantastic. The condo was decorated so nice and we felt so comfortable. It was so nice to walk right from the condo for dinner and the view from the condo couldn't have been better. Fort Myers Beach, Palm Harbor and you helped us to make it a very enjoyable vacation for all 4 of us. We certainly hope that we can return and you will be first on our list for setting up the vacation.

Thank you so much!!!

Good Afternoon Amy -

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay last
week. We had the property at 5566 Palmetto on Ft. Myers Beach. We really
appreciated Rick's help on our first day in with the bathroom. The property is
exactly as advertised - no surprises.

We will definitely be back next year as this is an annual event for us. We did
notice your signage along the way and that you have properties a little closer to
downtown. The walk was good for all of us but a bite far after an evening out.

Again thank you for the great service.

Thanks again for renting me the condo on such short notice. It was perfect! The neighbors we met were very friendly, and the view of the Waterway and the Sunrise every morning was just as good as being on the ocean. If we come again next year for the Baseball Tournament, I will call you.

B. Johnson



Amy, you can count on our return....we enjoyed our stay at the beach so much. It was just what we all needed....

Thanks to the owners for allowing us to use their home.




Thank you so much. We have returned home safely. Luckily our 2 year old rode really well on the way back home, which made us both very happy. ;-) We greatly enjoyed our stay at your home and will definitely consider renting from you again in the future.




good morning,
