Hi Tuggers,
Just checked in last night to Lehigh Acres resort in South West Florida area. Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised. Winn Dixie store is 2 minutes away, after long traffic filled drive, went out and bought dinner and relaxed in our one bedroom comfortable unit. I have been asked how a one bedroom can sleep 5 . This one is like our Summer Bay with One bedroom King Bed, ,sleep sofa in Living room, as well as a single Murphy bed. It is just us two, but good to know you can fit 5 if need be. I will write a review later, as we start using the facilities. Full resort,but very quiet, compared to other places we have stayed. Happy New Year!

We stayed there several years ago and loved it! Although the units were somewhat tired-looking, the number of activities and the enthusiasm of the resort staff more than made up for it. Enjoy your stay!

Ron,

Thanks for the article link. Interesting documentary (~30 min) and additional history/context from site linked inside that article: http://www.dreamsforsalemovie.com

Yep, memories are short and we'll likely forget this financial boom/bust cycle 20 years forward.
Valuable lessons.

Lehigh Acres (the community) has a "reputation" and its a 30-45 minutes away from Ft Myers, Ft Myers Beach and Sanibel. Further to Naples, which are the tourist draws, So Lehigh Acres (the timeshare) is everyones last choice when looking for a place to stay. But as you are discovering...not so bad.

For a little history read this

I have posted a review on our stay. I have to say we loved the Resort very much!
