Awesome Large Bayfront Home 6BR/5BA (4 Suites) w/ Large Dock, Indoor Saltwater Pool, 1 Short Blk from the Beach
If you want to spend your family vacation or friend’s reunion in a magnificent vacation home that includes four suites, then you have found your home away from home. From our big furnished dock, watch dolphins, manatees, and exotic birds or fish for your dinner. The area is famous for its fishing and is known as the “Tarpon Fishing Capital of the World.”
Take a short walk down the street and crossover to the white, sugar-sand beach that looks out into the Gulf of Mexico. Forget the crowded blanket to blanket of the East coast & Northeast coast beaches. While walking the 7 miles of beach, you will find more varieties of seashells then anywhere in North America. It is “the” perfect beach for you sunbathers, avid runners, bikers, & those who just love to wade or walk.
Or, make a right and head to “Times Square,” abundant with unique shops and restaurants for more fun. If you prefer to ride, take the Beach Trolley. The Fort Myers Beach Trolley can carry bicycles and a large number of beach combers.
What makes our home unique are the 4 bedroom suites containing 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The “Loft Suite” has 2 bedrooms w/ sitting area. The sitting area has a “wow” view looking over the indoor saltwater pool out to the dock & Matanzas Bay! The “Master’s Suite” has a huge sitting area, dressing room, large bathroom and door out to the “Secret Garden,” (a secluded furnished patio area for quiet privacy). It has a door wall leading to the lanai and looks out to Matanzas Bay. The “Canal Suite” has 2 bedrooms w/sitting area & TV. (The Canal is the winter home for a couple of families of manatees and their babies) Lastly, the “Bay View Suite” bedroom room has a full bath and a door wall leading out to the lanai that looks out onto Matanzas Bay. Also, our home has more than the usual appliances, including 2 refrigerators and 1 freezer.
While the parents relax on the dock or lanai eating local fresh shrimp, the kids can play in the “Game Room,” with the ping pong table, pool table or dart board. If it rains, no worry, it is all inside: the salt water (odorless) pool and hot tub (close to the “wet bar”), along with the Game Room, and 2 huge HD big screen TVs, there is plenty to do inside our home.
With a dock and wave runner lift, you can rent a boat or rent a wave runner for a day(s). Bring your own boat, 240v shore power. You can go to the local water park, go parasailing, play golf on or off the beach, play tennis, basketball, and swim in the ocean – all within a few minutes of our home.
Shopping is very convenient from our home. Less than a mile north is Publix for grocery shopping. In the same direction, another mile or so is a shopping plaza, Santini Plaza, containing a card store with a post office, hardware store, an ice cream shop, and a variety of other shops. Next to the shopping plaza is a CVS Pharmacy.
Travel North for about 20 minutes and you can drive to Sanibel Island, known for its beautiful beaches, lighthouse and shelling. Go south 10 minutes to the Travel Channel’s “America’s 10 Best Beaches,” Lover’s Key State Park. Also available are excursions to Everglades National Park and Key West, including air-boat and swamp buggy rides. If you enjoy gambling, there is a Casino Ship that goes out several times a day. “The Beach” has many restaurants just down the street from our home. (Our favorite dishes are the Crab Cakes, Crunchy Grouper, and Coconut Shrimp.)
If you want to travel a bit farther, it is 3 hours to Disney/Universal/& Sea World. In 2 hours, you are in Tampa featuring Busch Gardens. On the East Coast, you can visit Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, or South Beach. In 1 hour, Punta Gorda has a fun place to visit called “the Fishing Village” with shops and great seafood restaurants.
We invite you to stay at our unique, luxurious home for a fun-filled vacation on Fort Myers Beach with your family, friends, wedding party, or reunion. Book it today! The dolphins are calling you.

Lovely Home, Lovely Week
Lovely Home, Lovely Week
We were celebrating my mother's birthday, and no location could have been better. The house was great for multiple families. There was plenty of space; it was also well equipped. We absolutely loved watching the sun rise over the water and seeing the manatees play in the canal. Though the beach was a short walk, it was still convenient and out of the hustle and bustle of Fort Myers Beach proper. I would definitely stay in the house again!

Beautiful Home and plenty of room for our family of ten people. We loved laying out on the back deck. Saw dolphin everyday and manatees regularly. Would recommend to anyone with large groups.

Great place for our yearly family reunion of 8 adults. Would also be perfect for family with kids. We spent lots of time in the pool and hot tub. Plenty of bedrooms, although the 2 suites upstairs each shared a bathroom. Roomy kitchen and great game room. Just a block from the beach and very quiet cul-de-sac. We really enjoyed sitting on the dock overlooking the back bay and watching all the boats go by! Supermarket and drug store very close, as well as various good restaurants. Don't forget to rent bikes! The owners and property manager are very accommodating. We would return in a flash!

Big & Comfortable
Big & Comfortable
As advertised -- big and comfortable; clean and mostly in good condition. A few minor observations: cookware and glassware were cheap, low-end stuff -- especially knives; discolored plastic wine and coctail glasses (allegedly because of indoor pool); for the rental price, they should have had better stuff. Wifi stopped working after a few days and not fixed, despite complaint. Debbie, the local agent, did round up some real wine glasses for us; I hope they will stay in the house. All in though, a most comfortable place. We enjoyed our stay and would reccomend to others. Owner and local agent were helpful and easy to deal with. We understand that the house is relatively new on the rental market and hope the owner will make some adjustments.

Owner response: We appreciate constructive ideas from our guests, because our rental house is also our home for several months of the year. Our non-stick cookware is the same as we have in our Michigan home;although not Cuisinart, it is perfectly fine cookware.We will get new knives; this is a good suggestion. We did have our Property Manager purchase 8 new clear acrylic wine glasses, since this was a nice addition. We do not have glass in the home because we have an indoor swimming pool near the kitchen area. Guests tend to bring their drinks over to the pool, which is fine. So in case one drink is dropped, we would prefer to have the container not made of glass that someone could get injured on. Yes, we do have an assortment of Tevis and other colorful plastic drinking glasses, sufficient for the large groups of 12 people (including children)that stay at our home. When the WiFi has a problem, the guest calls our Property Manager and she ususally calls the owner in Michigan. He goes through the steps to reboot the WiFi system. Usually that resolves the problem. We know this, because the Manager connects her phone to the WiFi and sees if it works.On this occasion, the Manager checked and the WiFi was up and running. The only person in the home at the time had an Ipad and didn't know how to connect it to the WiFi. The owner told the guest to call if anyone in our home continued to have computer problems and our Manager would come back. No one called so it was assumed that the problem was solved. The next guests that checked in called to report that the WiFi was not working on Sunday, so the Manager's son went over, re-bridged the router and the WiFi has been fine for the past few weeks. As I mentioned, this is our home,too, in addition to our rental property, so we want our guests to enjoy the gorgeous indoor saltwater pool, relax on the large dock and watch the dolphins swim close by and have fun in our large gameroom playing pool or pingpong.
Wonderful Home To Rent in this Area!
Wonderful Home To Rent in this Area!
This home is absolutely beautiful! The photos shown are exactly what it looks like. My husband and I traveled with 5 other couples and for a group of friends this large this home was just perfect. There was everything you could want and more. Each couple had their own room for privacy which was our first priority. We could all gather in the living room and kitchen area at night which was wonderful. The huge leather couch was super comfy, there is a huge big screen T.V. in the living room and master bedroom, 2 or 3 refrigerators (we used 2), a large dining room table with 12-14 chairs to play games on and the indoor pool and hot tub were wonderful. Our husbands played many games of pool volleyball. We spent quite a bit of time on the dock fishing (we brought a few poles) and watching dolphins and manatees as well as many beautiful boats going by very often. We also rented a pontoon boat a few places down from our property (our personal booze cruise) and took it to Lovers Key (which was the highlight of our trip). We walked the short distance many times to the beautiful beach. Our favorite hangout was Junkanoos right down the beach. This home, while not brand new, would be perfect for a large family with children or several couples traveling together. Terri and the property manager, Debbie were more than helpful. I've recommended this home to my family and friends. I would definitely rent again.

Perfect vacation spot
Perfect vacation spot
Setting up a baseball trip vacation for guys and girls is not always easy. Working with owners Terri and Bernie made it very simple and less stressful than ever before. Their home is gorgeous and I can tell you that pictures will never do it justice. This was our eleventh year in Ft Myers, we love the beach, which is just a block away, and we spent more time in the home than we did on the beach. The dock overlooks the back bay and their was no better way to start your morning than sitting on the dock with a bloody mary and watching the boats, dolphins and even a manatee swim by. Our friends back home were simply jealous with our accommodations. Thank you again for a great week.

We do a couples getaway every year with 5 couples. The couples loved the house, and I turned a few of them into fisherman. We also enjoyed renting scooters, and renting a pontoon. We will definitely be coming back.
