Private Homes, Holiday Heights house description
Welcome to Island Escape, our family's spacious, canal-front home with an amazing view of Estero Bay. Our home is on a quiet cul-de-sac in a well-kept, mid-island neighborhood just five minutes (by foot) from the sugar-soft sands of Fort Myers Beach.
At Island Escape, you can enjoy all the comforts of home - along with a private, heated pool - for less than the price of a hotel room. Three bedrooms plus a queen-sized sleeper sofa offer comfortable sleeping for up to 8. You'll also appreciate the huge living room, cozy alcove, fully-equipped kitchen, formal dining room, two full baths (one with a Jacuzzi tub) and fully enclosed lanai*.
*Please note that the living spaces are on the upper level of our two-story home and are accessible only by stairs. The pool and patio are NOT enclosed and may not be suitable for young children. At least one person in your party must be at least 35. Local regulations prohibit renting our home for less than one full week.

Need to do a little work? Our home is equipped with a printer and high speed wireless internet connection. Just bring your laptop!
Fort Myers Beach is known for its magnificent sunsets and exciting nightlife, as well as a large number of excellent restaurants. To get anywhere on the beach, you can walk, take one of our bikes or hop on a trolley. There's even an app for that!
Just make sure you don't miss out on the amazing beach itself. It's worth waking up early at least once to get first pick of the shells and sand dollars left behind by the tide. And as you walk through the white, powdery sand and into the cool, clear gulf water, keep an eye out for dolphins at play.
Our family cherishes every moment we get to spend there, and we hope enjoy our Island Escape as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Holiday Heights:
I can't explain it, but there is something special about Fort Myers Beach. It's not just the soft, white sands, the breathtaking sunsets, and the abundance of wildlife. There's something about the people, too. The locals are friendly and down-to-earth, as are the visitors, who come from all over the world. We love the mid-island location of our home. We're far enough away from Times Square that we don't to deal with the crowds 24/7, but if the kids want to go hang out there, they can walk, bike, or take the trolley. There are beach access crosswalks at either end of our neighborhood, and Publix grocery store is just a few blocks away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This truly is our Island Escape. We lead hectic, stressful lives, but the minute we cross the bridge to Fort Myers Beach, we can feel the tension subside. From the colorful shops and restaurants in Times Square, to the pier, the gulf waters, and the amazing white-sand beach, there is always something to do...and nothing to do.
