Estero Sands house description

The beach cottage is situated on the island Ft. Myers Beach about 200 m from the wonderfully fine and plane sandy beach, in a quiet side road between beach and canal. Meaning you can enjoy both at a time. At the front side it has a large, sunny terrace, in the back the swimming pool that is fenced and surrounded by tropical plants protecting it from viewers. Downstairs it features 2 garages, behind these a living area that leads to a roofed over terrace at the swimming pool. At the pool there is a gas grill, garden furniture etc. Upstairs lies the master bedroom that is separated from the two other bedrooms by a spacious, open sitting-room/kitchen combination. The living room and master bedroom lead through glass sliding doors to the terrace, all rooms include large windows and are bright. The cottage is newly renovated and furnished, everything in light, sunny colours, the furniture also white or cream-coloured.

Water, water, water...: The house is a modern beach cottage, too small for a representative villa, too big for a normal house. It has the right size for a family with children or e.g. grandparents with children and/or grandchildren. Other groups feel at ease here, also, but have to make arrangements for the occupation of the bedrooms, since 2 bedrooms share a bathroom, while the other it a little more luxurious. At one side, 200 m distant is a fine sandy, plain an especially not-crowded beach. You can walk to the Junkanoo-Bar, in the evenings for the sunset, during the day for a pizza, a jetski, parasailing, or a round of volleyball. This is the companionable choice, about 50 m further down. At the other side of the street the lovely canals, where the kids like to go fishing, start. The surrounding streets are quiet streets with mixed constructions. Here there are old, small, flat Florida-cottages, new stilt-homes etc.

Neighbourhood: You are living in a grown surrounding , no skyskrapers, no modern appartment complexes, but the fire department, the Redcoconut-Campground, the beach bar and, as the newest highlight, a library nearby. The water is 15-200 m away at both sides, this means only 4-5 houses are between you and the beach resp. canal, from the terrace you can see the canal’s water through the trees.

Free time activities: Naturally all water sports, bicycle rental, moped rental etc. nearby. On the island itself you do not need a car, you can cover everything by bicycle or moped, which is recommended during high season because of traffic. Excursions from the northern end to Key West, to the Everglades, with the Casino ship, for open sea fishing there are hydrofoils and other possibilities available directly on the island. Boat rental at the edges of the island and in other marinas nearby. The whole surrounding is made up of small islands, where everyone will find a special hideaway. Canoeing tours from Hendrycreek at the US 41 to the Lovers-Key-National-Park are very nice. In the national park there are guides hiking tours with explanations of the stingrays, the turtles, mussles, fish and plants. Excursions to the farther surrounding start from Sanibel to the Everglades to Miami, the Keys and of course Orlando, which are all day excursions.

          Other Amenities

              • The room has just been completely renovated and furnished at the in- and exterior. The garden has also been newly arranged. Therefore our plants are not too big yet, but due to the American way of planting very well noticeable (after all a 7m palm was put right in front of the house). The furniture, as well as bedclothes, dishes, etc. is new. The house features 2 televisions, one of which with integrated DVD-player, Fax and fast-speed-online-access. All rooms are bright, modern and spacious. The guests can spread onto several levels, meaning they can avoid eachother. The beach is easily reachable by foot. Just tug your beach towel under your arm and start for the beach. The backroads are all very quiet streets, you can take a walk at night or go to the Junkanoo-Bar at the beach to watch the sunset....moreless

                          Ft. Myers Beach is an offshore island in the Gulf of Mexico with a 14 km fine sandy beach at the sea front, connected to the mainland by two bridges. The location is a small village that was occupied early by the snowbirds. By now hotel complexes and houses have displaced the caravan colonies for long. Still the authentic old-Florida-flair remained. There are many very old houses and streets and a grown view of place, not synthetic and sterile, but very composite. True natives are living here, not only tourists. The northern end is minted by tourism with amusement mile and shops, at the south end are the hotels with golf courts, with the Lovers-Key National Park following. In the middle of the island there are exclusively motley one-family houses, quietly situated. From the harbour at the north end the ferry departs for Key West.
