Joan has been a very kind and uncomplicated host. We enjoyed staying in Cape Coral and explore the tips she had for us in the area as well as the drinks in the evening, where we had a chance to chat and also get to know more about the area itself. Hardy is very forthcoming as well and you needn't be frightened of him once he had a chance to say hello to you.
Joan nous avait laissé un petit mot pour notre accueil car elle partait à un dîner de Noël. Nous l'avons vue quelques minutes avant qu'elles partent et elle a bien insisté pour que nous fassions comme chez nous ! La chambre était confortable, la literie impeccable. Hardy, son labrador est adorable. Merci Joan de faire confiance aux voyageurs que nous sommes ! Take care :-)
I liked my stay very much with Joan. The house big and comfortable, and she has her own bar! Everything was clean and the bed is very comfortable. Joan is the best host you can get. She is very friendly and helpful and gave me recommendations on places where to go. Her pets are very brave and seems to enjoy all the visitors. Joan even arranged a meeting with some interesting people! Beside of that she also made wonderful breakfast and even dinner!!
Joan made us feel like family as soon as we met! We shared lots of fun, laughter, food and drinks each evening as well as Joan acting as a fabulous tour guide on a trip to Matlache in the daytime. Arrived a strangers, left as friends... we will be sure to keep in touch. Don't hesitate to stay at Joans place, it will be one of the highlights of your trip!
Joan's place is a warm and welcoming place even when you arrive after midnight and she's already in bed!
Hardy is a sweetheart of a dog too and he'll show you around no matter how late you are.
Joan is full of life and experiences that come with it. She made us breakfast and set a table for us outside even though breakfast was to be self serve!
We will definitely be back. She knows the area well and what there is to do and offered to give us a personal tour of a German festival in the area.
Can't wait to stay here again!!
Count yourself lucky if you get to stay here! Joan was one of the warmest and most welcoming hostesses I have had the pleasure of lodging with. She helped me in every way imaginable - from allowing me to conduct a research interview in her living room, to sharing food and coffee and showing me the neighborhood. She even took me to the beach and gave me swimming pointers! I was alone in the area for work, but she made the trip homey and fun. The visit wouldn't have been the same without her. I feel like I have a new friend and some great memories. Thanks!!!
We loved staying with Joa. The house is very neat place, especially the tiki bar. Everything was clean and beds were very comfortable. And Joan is the best host you can get. She was very friendly and helpful and gave us recommendations on places to go and her dog Hardy was very cute.
Thank you very much, Joan!
Joan was a great host, her home is really cute, she is very helpful, gave us a lot of advice and places to go. We only stayed for the weekend but she really made us feel at home ! I would definitely go back to her place If I travel again to Fort Myers !
Thank you so much to a great host and a new friend. Joan and Hardy welcomed Leslie and I and our 2 year old Lab mix Finn into our Airbnb first time vacation get away. She not only directed us where to go site seeing around the coast she was able to join us on one of our days of fishing. Thanks again Joan....Till next time!
