Car: Not Necessary

Our 2 bd. 2 ba. private home is nestled back in a private quiet setting surrounded by lots of trees and plants, and only about 100 steps to beach access #23 across from sea view street, walking distance to most all of the restaurants and night life. Fort Myers beach is an island 7 miles long with access from the Matanzas Bridge at the north end, and Big Carlos Pass from the south end. The best direction is to come over the matanzas bridge and it's about 1 mile from the base of the bridge. For travelers with dogs the island is pet friendly. Dogs can be on the beach at any time of day or evening on a leash, but if they are out in the water swimming they don't have to have their leash on. If you head south a few miles and go just past Lovers Key state park you'll find doggie beach, dogs can run and play leash free (it's best to go at low tide when there's more beach) We are also just about 10 mi. to the beautiful Sanibel Island (10 mi.to the bridge that takes you over to Sanibel Island) If you've never been you must go I believe it's been voted one of the most beautiful Island's in the country! Now if you go south on Ft. Myers beach about 5 miles there's a beautiful state park called Lovers Key with beautiful beaches as well and awesome shelling, people say the shelling is as good as Sanibel island. If you love walking and biking when you are on vacation you'll Love our place it's just a hop, skip and a jump from the beautiful sugary sandy beaches on the Gulf of Mexico (about 100 steps) from our street. Just about everywhere you want to go you can get there on bikes. We supply everything bikes, chairs, beach towels umbrellas for shade, skim board, boogie board, sand buckets for the kids even tennis rackets. The recreation center is also just about 100 or so steps away from your stay at lovers ln. There you'll find tennis courts basketball courts baseball field and friesbie golf. Inside the recreation center is a weight room they also have yoga classes, zumba among others. In the same area is the community pools, which is included in your stay there's a kiddie pool with a little slide and then a Olympic size pool with a big slide. There's a refreshment stand you can buy food and drink. Back on the beach you have para-sailing, jet-skiing, paddle-boarding, all just across the street within a 5min walk. Times Square is a popular hot spot with all the places to eat, drink and shop. There's a great fishing pier and the sunsets are awesome. There's great entertainment with local bands playing right in times square and street performers on the weekends. If you're in the mood for a little hiking, Matanzas Pass a 60 acre Preserve is just behind our cottage, very nice trails, and some boardwalks, there are benches through out if you want to sit and relax or do some bird watching. There's a little deck over looking the bay, if you want to do some fishing, we also have fishing poles and everything that you would need to catch the big one. There are lots of different types of birds and owls you to see. Across the bay there are several places you can take a tour on a boat for the day. There's key west express takes you to the Keys and back for the day or if your feeling adventurous you can spend the night in key west and take the boat back that evening it's a beautiful ride. There's the Fort Myers Princess tour boat which can take you on a dolphin or a sunset cruise. All are just a short ride over the bridge about 2 mi. by car. All the information you need is at the house for all the activities, prices, hours of operation, directions, etc.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My husband grew up right here on Ft. Myers beach, so pretty much anything that you would need to know about the beach he knows the history. As for myself I'm originally from St. Louis Mo. but have lived here for 26 years so I feel like a local. We've lived here together on the island for 18yrs.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, North Island:
Fort Myers Beach and this particular property is beautiful to me because it has the beach right across the street and it's close enough in season to get of the island (just 1 mile from bridge)without sitting in traffic forever, yet far enough away to all the action without being right in the heart of. We have amazing sunsets with the sun glistening on the water. I wanted to make our property special in having that something extra that other places didn't have while enjoying all the beautiful weather we have and outdoor activities at a time when most people are stuck inside during the cold winter months.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Rent both sides out for a big family vacation, will sleep a total of 8. Oak trees with all the great shadey areas that makes it great for enjoying the outdoors and nature all around this unique private quiet area. Being right across the street from the beach is also a plus. Also just 2 blocks opposite from the beach side is a 60 acre preserve called Matanzas Pass, you can hike, walk, or fish off of a covered deck that looks over that back bay into all the Mangroves.
