What makes this Villa unique
The Wischis Florida Home - Sunshine Beach A beach house in Fort Myers like no other awaits you from the moment you open the front door. A stunning vacation home, with stunning views and only 2 walking minutes to the beach.
Best Location on the Island
This property was excellent. Everything worked properly and kitchen was stocked with all the essentials you need. Going into the week we were concerned about the thermostat having to be set at 75 all day. After the first day, we set both main floor and 3rd floor thermostats on 77 both day and night, and we were amazed how comfortable the house was at 77. (have not received our deposit back showing how much electricity we used but should be minimal.)
The shaded outdoor lanai with TV and large dining table was a great spot to eat dinner each night, even during some wild thunderstorms!! The beds, in each bedroom, were outstanding and the bedrooms were plenty spacious. Bathrooms were good size. The only slight issue is the water pressure was very low in all showers and even the kitchen sink. Living room furniture was extremely comfortable. TVs/Wifi throughout the house were in great working order.
The pool is much smaller than we thought it would be but was very serviceable for our group. The dock down below was great to sit on and watch dolphins and even a manatee swim around.
The location to restaurants/bars/ice cream/pier cannot be beat from this house. Everything is a short walk away. There are no nearby grocery stores within walking distance on the island. There is a Publix about 10 minutes away by car across the bridge.
After reading several of the other reviews we were slightly hesitant about this property after we booked. Going over the 4th of July week, we knew there was not going to be a need to heat pool or hot tub. However, we were concerned about being in sun all day and only being able to cool house to 75. Like I mentioned earlier, the house at 77 degrees throughout was very comfortable and even cool during the overnight hours.
This house has everything in it and everything around it to make for a perfect week for your family and friends.
***I will update this review to let everyone know the Electricity charges for the house being kept at 77 to give you an idea of what to expect for your stay at this great property**
Beautiful house right by everything !
One of the best houses that I have ever rented!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate it and are happy that you had a great stay.
Looking forward to welcoming you back sometime in the future.

Rental company never fixed the pool/hot tub heater even though we reported it on the first full day. They claimed it was fine but when the pool cleaner person show up they told us it was looked at the week before because it wasn't working. Outside fire pit didn't work properly, one ran all night long as we couldn't get it to turn off. TV's in up stairs bedrooms didn't work. Electric bill was very high, we had the AC set to 78 the whole time. It ended up being 6 times the allotted amount. When asked for compensation for the troubles all that was given was less then half the Electric charge. Its a shame very nice house but too many troubles for us to rent it again.
In regards to the issues mentioned in this review, we must clarify a few issues.
The three most important things for us in property management are clean homes, well functioning homes and happy guests. We do our best to fulfill all three of those things but sometimes things can happen that are out of our control.
These guests had mentioned 3 issues during, the weekend check-in: a none working TV on the lanai, the two fire pits flanking the pool not working correctly and the fact that they couldn’t get the pool to heat. We addressed all of this as quickly as we could. We had sent our handyman who checked on the fire pits (which later on did require an electrician), the TV and the pool heater. The TV was indeed broken and got replaced 2 days after we knew about the issue, the fire pits where turned off so that no problems would arise and our handyman even sent us pictures of the pool heater turned on and running. After the guest said that it sill wasn’t warm enough we sent our pool people to the home and following that a pool tech. All of them said that the heater, and the system were working properly.
We invite you to have a look at this home on our website and ask that you realize that this is a very large home, with 3 floors, 5 bedrooms, 2 A/C systems and 3 portable A/C systems. The fact that electricity is only partially included does not come as a surprise, it’s even in the rental contract that people have to sign. And when you have 8 people in a house that size it is normal to have an electrical charge.
The electric bill in this case came to $192.00 and we gave a $100 discount in the matter.
Gorgeous in an amazing location near everything!
This home was even better than described. Very large with high end everything we wanted for nothing with this home. The location made for easy access to all the beach activities and restaurants as well as easy exit off the island when we wanted without getting stuck in all the beach traffic. This may become a Christmas and New Years tradition for us!
Amazing House, electric bill was High
The house was amazing, gorgeous pool, elevator and easy walk to beach. The additional charge for the electric bill was a little offsetting, especially since we were stuck at the house for half a day waiting on a repair person, due to AC issue, which probably effected the bill.
Other than that loved the place, and were planned on booking next year, but with the electric charges what they were, will have to consider somewhere else.
Thank you for the wonderful review about our home.
Please keep in mind this house has 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms which do need to be cooled. The main floor AC was set to 66 degrees. Fans in all rooms were running. Add spa and pool heating to that and it is easily explained why your electricity was so high.
Beautiful house. Excellent location. Great gathering place for our family getaway. We look forward to our next visit.
