The hostess is fantastic and is extremely committed to the renters' needs. The property is well maintained and is nestled within a mature neighborhood. The rentals are unique and have their own charm that parallels a weekend cottage. If you are expecting organized activities that parallel larger resorts, you will be disappointed but if you are looking for an alternative to a hotel suite, this is a good alternative.
Regarding service, my family arrived late and needed to depart early and Gerti was extremely accommodating. Her enthusiasm and commitment to this unique getaway made it a pleasant experience.
The Pyramids are a unique place to stay near all the major attractions in Ft. Myers. Set off the main road and surrounded by mature palms and foliage you'll feel far away from everything but you're right in the middle if it all! Gerti is an amazing host. She met us personally upon arrival and walked us through the complex detailing all it had to offer. And boy does it offer a lot... especially for the price. The natural spring fed lake/pool is huge and amazing. I would highly recommend the Pyramids to anyone interested in a unique resort like experience while staying in Ft. Myers.
This was our first stay here, and it was one wonderful month. Our unit was one of the larger ones and had plenty of room for us and 2 or 3 guests. It was clean, had all the amenities [dishwasher, washer and dryer, etc.], and the layout was perfect, affording alot of privacy for any guests we had using the 2nd floor, and for us in relation to the other units.
The grounds were very nice - lots of birds, butterflies, and many beautiful flowering plants and trees. The 2 patios were quite private; nice places to sunbathe and read a book.
The pool was wonderful - cool enough to be refreshing but a very comfortable temperature. And the natural mineral water [not chlorinated] did feel very healing.
Having our large dog with us, we were concerned about how he would manage and how he would be received. But our concerns quickly evaporated as soon as we arrived when he was welcomed right into the front office. And on the property was a wonderful walking trail for him [and me] along a creek that fed into a small pond where we would regularly see herons, egrets, ducks, etc. He loved it there.
The location was very convenient, about halfway between downtown Ft. Myers and Bonita Springs. All the shopping you could ask for was close at hand.
The management was very responsive to any requests and always seemed to be working to keep the grounds and the units in top shape. They even invited the guests to a pool-side dinner one evening. A very friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
We are VERY MUCH looking forward to next year!!

We stayed here for our honeymoon, and it was amazing!! The people are wonderful and very helpful. Our Pyramid was newly renovated and was Beautiful and amazing! We rented a car and were able to go to different attractions, most within 15 miles. I highly recommend this place!
The hot tub was not working and the pool is unheated. The pool had no railing to gain entry making it almost impossible for anyone with mobility issues. The use of a pool and hot tub was important to me.
The apartment was spacious and well furnished with all appliances and amenities but lacking room darkening curtains in the bedrooms. The 2 patios were very nice. Will, in the office was very nice and helpful. The place just did not work out for us.
