To the west, it is eight miles to the magnificent Fort Myers beaches on the gulf coast and to the causeway leading to Sanibel Island and Captiva. To the south, after an hour’s drive, you can be in the wildlife reserves of The Everglades. Find your own deserted beach to the north.

New Horizons is a four bedroomed private property situated in the quiet community of Wellington Lakes. It is a spacious villa, beautifully furnished as a family home with modern kitchen, cable TV, and Wi-Fi.

About a mile from Wellington Lakes there is a shopping area with a quality supermarket. Half a mile further on there are more stores, bars, and restaurants. Towards Fort Myers Beach watch pelicans from the balcony of one of the many dockside seafood restaurants. For the younger visitors, there are lively bars and clubs with live music and dancing. There is something for everyone here from the keen shopper looking for fashion at one of the outlet stores to those who prefer to laze quietly and comfortably at New Horizons. Others can explore the creeks accompanied by dolphins, manatees, alligators, and birds. Some may wish to play golf at one of the many courses a short distance away, hit tennis or pickleball or bike along cycle paths.

This was the second time we have visited this home in 5 months, we loved it so much! The home is well laid out and equipped and the pool is fantastic.
When we encountered some minor repairs needed (it is an older home) Vacasa were straight on the case with great communication and swift response - no problem.

Unfortunately our holiday ends tomorrow and we have to say it was fantastic. Your house is so comfortable, the pool, the beds, the kitchen and ofcourse the BBQ J We have really enjoyed our stay and for me, Ernst, it was a great remembarance of when i was staying on Marco Island with my parents and sisters back in 1980. Brought back sweet memories.

Wonderful House!! We’ve been coming to Ft. Myers for years, first time rending a home and will definitely be back. Great location, love the pool and other amenities. Thank you.

Our girls getaway couldn’t have been more perfect. Your beautiful home with the relaxing view of the lake and wildlife was spectacular. We have visited this area in the past but would have to say the location of your home is one of the best! Thank you for offering this lovely property. We hope to make this a yearly event!

The home was very clean, we'll set out with south facing views overlooking the lake. It had lots of extras like pool toys and the welcome pack by Vacasa supplied all the household consumables which would normally require an early shopping trip rather than an early dip in the pool, so that was much appreciated! We loved it so much that we have booked it again later this year.

We rented this property for two weeks in Dec/Jan 2018/2019 and it was truly perfect! The beds and furniture were comfortable, the neighborhood was quiet and well kept, and the pool and patio area was great. The back of the house faces south so it got great sunlight all day long (with also plenty of shade on the patio) and the pond behind provided a great backdrop for watching birds - as well as one alligator sighting! We opted for pool heat which made it perfect for our young children’s use. The house came well equipped with basic starting toiletries, soaps, etc. The grill was not initially working when we arrived and Vacasa promptly sent a representative out to rectify the situation (they provided a new grill). As another reviewer mentioned a month ago, appears that the dryer needs to be serviced. It is usable but requires two cycles to dry clothes. As far as the rooms, it should be noted that the master bedroom shares a Jack-and-Jill bath with a smaller room that has two twin beds. There is a pocket door on the smaller room leading to the bathroom, however no door on the master bedroom leading to the bath. This was fine for us, as our young daughters (2 and 4) shared the twin beds and we wanted to keep an eye on them. However it does decrease privacy in the master bedroom and may not be ideal for someone with a different situation. Since we traveled with our two young children, we were concerned about the safety risk of having a pool on the property. We were glad to see that the sliding doors to the patio had a double locking system that our 2 year old could not figure out (although our 4 year old did manage to). We brought some jingle bells for that door which is located right outside of the master bedroom and some door knob covers for other doors that we wished to deter the children from turning. Overall an excellent experience and we would definitely look to rent this property again in the future. Thanks for a great stay!

7 of us have had a great 2 weeks here. We are from Chester and Basingstoke in the UK. Breakfast good at Eggcetera Brilliant dinner at Bonefish Grill, if you like seafood. Sanibel Island is beautiful. Island Cow is very nice for a spot of lunch there. Captiva Island very beautiful and great spot for watching the sunset. Mucky Duck is good for a mean and then watch the sunset as right on the beach - take insect repellent though!! Sunsplash Waterpark great for a day out. Jungle Golf and Smuggler Cove Adventure Golf good fun. Overall loads of fun things to do within a close radius. Enjoy!!

Amazing house in a great location. Close to the beach and plenty of restaurants and attractions close by. Kids loved swimming in the pool and very friendly neighbors. Vacasa staff was helpful with our questions. We would definately stay at this house again.
