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!!

Ft. Myers Beach, Sanibel Island, & Captiva are all only 30 mi. away with each offering its own distinct personality and style. Naples Beach and Marco Island are just a little further down the road while Tampa/St. Pete beaches are two hours north.
