Property description

Watch dolphins and manatee play in the newly landscaped back yard or while swimming in the new, heated pool. This updated home nestled on a private natural lagoon has all the amenities of home, but with a fantastic view! This is not a man made canal, but a natural lagoon. The sunset, wildlife and mangroves cannot be compared.

There is a king in the master bedroom, queen and bunks in 2nd bedroom with a walk out to the pool. The cathedral ceiling living room has a wall sliding door meaning you have not only a bright and cheery living space, but can open the doors to make it outdoor living. The second living room has a queen pullout couch for additional sleeping. The all new bathrooms and open concept kitchen, with high-end stainless steel appliances, including ice-maker, granite counters and second sink, offer luxury living. There is a bosch washer and dryer as well and a second refrigerator in the garage.

You will enjoy meals at the dinning room table or outside at the back yard table where you can also barbeque on the gas grill. Large fenced yard with pool, palms, dining table and chairs, lawn chairs and out-door shower. For families with young children, there is a kid’s fence around the pool. It can easily be removed if you do not need it.

This is a well-preserved and quiet neighborhood on south end of island with deeded access to fort myers beach at two locations just blocks away. This is the most desirable location on the island with easier access on and off during peak season. Stay here once and you'll never want to go anywhere else. This is not your average rental property.

Bring your boat or just relax on the dock or deck watching the wildlife. If you bring your boat, you are just 5 minutes from the gulf one-way and 5 minutes from the marina the other. Lots of restaurants with boat docking including the fish house or doc fords – our two favorites. You can also rent our pontoon boat for the week.

Restaurants, bars, cinema where you can dine and watch, shopping, para-sailing, mini-putt, water park for the kids - everything you might want, can be gotten or gotten to, easily from this amazing waterfront location. There are two bikes in the garage or a 50 cent trolley that will take you anywhere on the island and will run every 8 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the season. Also provided are beach chairs, beach wagon, kayak, umbrella, beach towels, beach cooler, and beach toys.

When you just want to stay in, enjoy high speed internet, netflicks and direct tv. There is are two televisions, one in the master and one in the living room. The 2nd bedroom has a tv/vcr and there are lots of movies to choose from.

You can also get fresh seafood from the local fishermen and fish markets for that quiet evening in.

Quiet end of Fort Myers Beach allows you to be as busy or as relaxed as you choose. Plus easier to get on and off the island. Lots of restaurants, shopping and beaches. Minutes to the dog beach and Lovers Key Park. Bonita Springs and Naples close by.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: As Canadians who have braved too many winters already, we are celebrating our second year here on Lagoon. We love it so much that we purchased a .52 acre at the north end of the island and are renovating six, two bedroom units, creating a tropical resort, full of amenities and steps to the beach. Like our beloved Lagoon, we are landscaping, putting in a pool and planning for semi-retirement in a few years. Until we are able-time, we are making our home available for rent. We hope that you come to love our home as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Laguna Shores:
We had been looking for a home for over a year working with a very patient agent. Having seen hundreds of homes, we knew this one was ours the moment we walked in because it was not just another canal home, but on a natural lagoon that is a large bay with mangroves on the other side. We went out to the dock and saw a dolphin playing around, then a manatee! We knew this was it. My husband is a builder and we are making this our dream retirement home. So far we have put in a pool, landscaped, completely renovated the two bathrooms and kitchen. It is an open concept kitchen. We continue to upgraded the furnishings and just put in new furnishing in the living room and family room. We clean from top to bottom and fix anything that needs fixing. We love this home and we cannot wait until we are able to semi-retire. The other great thing about it was that it was located in the south end of the beach. This means in peak season, we can easily get on and off the island and do not have to engage in the craziness at the north end of the beach. (When we were there in March we stayed in the north end and it took us two hours just to get on or off the beach) We can easily take the trolly there if we want or we can enjoy the quieter beach and traffic at the south end.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking distance to the beach with deeded access means you have easy access. We also provide everything you might need like beach chairs, umbrella and cooler. But when you get to our back yard, don't be surprised if you find yourself settling in there. We have heard from a number of our guest that they never left the back yard because it was so beautiful there.
