Verandah house description
Come enjoy the natural beauty of Florida's only 'Green Community' featuring 1,460 acres of Moss-covered Oak Canopies, Winding Wooded Walkways and Lush Rolling Fairways nestled along the meandering Olde Orange River. Just stroll through the photos of this Gated Natural Wonderland and you will see why Verandah is a place unlike any other and truly reminiscent of the Florida of days gone by with its undeveloped Natural Wetlands and Protected Wildlife to experience around every turn.
Whether you're looking to simply relax in a beautiful private pool (heated at your discretion) and enjoy the natural beauty and serenity of Old Florida, or pursue more active outdoor challenges like Kayaking with the Manatees on the Olde Orange or Caloosahatchee Rivers, or Biking or Walking the ten miles of trailways, you will fall in love with Verandah.
And we are sure you will find our home every bit as welcoming and lovely and relaxing as Verandah itself. Overlooking a protected Nature Preserve featuring intriguing wildlife sounds and activity and incredible evening sunsets through the trees, this immaculate private home is loaded with comfort, charm and convenience. Featuring a heated private pool and spa on a Lanai with plenty of chaise lounges in and out of the pool, and offering unique privacy from the Preserve, this Villa offers the best of everything. With a large Great Room featuring a 12-ft Patio Door opening to the Lanai & pool, it feels as if the outdoors has come in! The large Master Suite features a walk-in closet and private bath, and with the two other large bedrooms (one which can be used as an intimate den or office) and bath, and Three TVs and DVD players, there is plenty of room to spread out and relax in different areas. As you look through the photos, imagine yourself here for an extended getaway - or just a quick break - enjoying the Fall Color of the Preserve, the manatees swimming to warmth in the Winter, the bright Spring Sunshine signaling the end of another northern winter, or just some simple summer fun with friends and family.
So just come on down...all you need are clothes and food and a care-free attitude. When you get here, it's all just so easy -- simply relax by the pool, take a stroll through the woods, enjoy an Evening Cocktail at Blossoms on the River, take a Bike Ride on the bikes provided for you, or pick up a complimentary Kayak on the River and see what awaits you in the water.
With the Airport, Gulf beaches, Marina, public Golf Courses, Dining and Regional Shopping just 5-30 minutes away, you can also easily enjoy the many other amenities that Southwest Florida has to offer. To get here, just take 75N from the Airport to Rte. 80 (a/k/a Palm Beach Blvd) east for three miles to Verandah. (Caloosahatchee River 1/2 mile to the north.) 3450 Lakeview Isle Court, Ft. Myers, Florida 33905. You will be so glad you came!!

Beautiful Property, First Class Development
Beautiful Property, First Class Development
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Maria's house for the month of November, 2011. The house and the development were not only as advertised, but we found both even better than our expectations! We have rented many homes throughout the sun belt and this has been our best find so far. Maria was fantastic to work with and we are hoping to spend a couple of months a year in this beautiful location in the future. The property is very well maintained as is the entire veranda development and the location is only a couple of minutes from I-75, although after entering this gated community you would think you were miles from the nearby attractions of Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers. We would recommend this property very highly and our best recommendation is that we plan to stay here as often as possible in the future.

Owner response: Verandah truly is the best of all worlds... The natural beauty and adventure of winding bike & walking trails through 100-year-old Oak tree canopies as well as kayaking the lazy Olde Orange River...or a day at the beaches & shops & golf courses of Sanibel, Captiva or Ft. Myers just 20 to 30 miles away. And at the end of any day...relax in your private home with private (heated) pool and spa overlooking a beautiful sunset throught the Nature Preserve. A perfect end to any day.

We stayed her for a month and I didn't want to leave. The property was beautifully decorated and the photos represented the property well. I really enjoyed the bike paths and kayaking along the orange river. Four new bikes were provided and the kayaking was free. We ate at the restaurant and had 2 1/2 pound lobsters at a buffet with other fish - mouthwatering! We don't play golf but there are 2 highly rated golf courses in the complex. The pool and spa area was totally private and relaxing. The heater and controls were located in the house, so it was very convenient. The only amenity I would have liked would be better bed linens and also a 'lighter' blanket. There was only a heavy bedspread or heavy blanket on the bed. Would have like cotton and better pillows. Other than that, it was an outstanding vacation.

Stayed in this Villa for 3 weeks in August 2009. Excellent accommodation, very comfortable with high standard of facilities. Benefits from being within gated community and very useful supermarket 'on-site'. Highly recommended - it's on our re-visiting list.
