We had a great stay at Joan and Hardy. The area is nice and Joan had lots of nice advice. The bedroom and shared bathroom were clean.
Joan was very welcoming, and even had liquid refreshments in the refrigerator when I'd arrived. Very knowledgeable about the area and had some good suggestions since I'd not really made plans. She'd invited me to go swimming with her and sidekick Hardy (the friendly labradoodle). We also did happy hour and dinner the next day...lots of fun! Of course there's no obligation, but Joan is very courteous and wants to make sure you're enjoying your stay. Fresh hot coffee in the morning and breakfast if you want. Overall a good experience -- I would definitely go back.
Joan is a generous host. She and her big dog Hardy are welcoming.The beds are soft. The rooms are clean.There are a lot of wines,drinks in the KITI bar。I would like to recommend Joan's nice house to everybody.Yang
Very warm welcome! Nice neighborhood and great place to stay for a couple of days
We loved staying with Joan. She was a true delight and so easy to be with. Joan is an excellent hostess who shares her home generously. We loved playing the German game with her for hours! Lots and lots of laughs. Thank you, Joan. You're the best!
I felt very welcome when i got to Joans house. She offered me a choice of either of two bedrooms. They were clean and neat and had microwaves and refrigerators in them with various drinks available in them.. She was very gracious and offered me snacks and breakfast cereals and fruits. Her house was close to many bars and restaurants and she helped me with directions. She also helped me try to find a seasonal winter rental
Joan and her adorable dog Hardy welcomed us into their home like we were old friends. We had fun with her from the start, and she showed us around her favourite spots in town. I was so glad to have booked with her, so many laughs and good stories shared - will definitely stay here again if i come back to fort Myers. House is lovely and in a great place to do day trips around the area from. Joan will make your time in Cape Coral well worth it - offering breakfast, fruit and a wealth of knowledge on the area. Highly recommended and can't wait to have drinks with Joan again!
