We are located off Davis Road, SW, behind Mac Gregor Blvd. It's a nice quiet unit near the pool and tennis court. Tanger Outlet Center is a very short walk from us. Miromar Outlets, the Disneyland of Outlet shops is located in nearby Estero (about 18 miles) and the new Gulf Coast Town Center which hosts many major retailers and a multiplex movie theater is about 15 miles away. Plenty of public golf courses in Fort Myers. The Sanibel Causeway and Fort Myers Beach areas are about equidistant from us. A tremendous amount of shopping awaits you in Fort Myers if you tire of the beaches and pool. I won't even mention the amount of 'dollar stores' and consignments shops that are in the immediate area. Sanibel/Captiva shelling and salt water fishing are world-famous. Excellent restaurants for all tastes and budgets are everywhere. Lots to do in the Fort Myers/Sanibel/ Captiva area if you're into nature. Lakes Park, Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, Tarpon Bay Preserve, Sanibel Shell Museum..then again, you could just sit and enjoy a cocktail or two on the lanai and watch the sun set.
Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: In the summer of 1987 a friend and I went to visit his newly retired parents, some place called Fort Myers, FL. His father had read a few years before that Fort Myers was one of the ten best places to retire in the US. They had just purchased a unit in Davis Woods. I was up for a vacation, so I figured 'why not?' We arrived from New York in early July, so it was hot... very hot and humid. But I've got to tell you, within hours I fell in love with the whole area. I loved his unit, I loved Fort Myers, Sanibel, Captiva, even Fort Myers Beach...which back then was more like a drag strip for teenagers to hang out and throw beer bottles at each other. Within four days I was looking at real estate. I found this unit and liked it immediately. At the time it was occupied by a full time tenant and her daughter. They had plans to eventually return to their home in the Midwest. I just didn't know when. Well within about two years they decided to move out. Upon their departure I went down with a friend and completely renovated the place. I began renting seasonally and found that I always had a place that I wanted to go for a vacation in the off-season. Since then there have been many, many upgrades to this unit, including a wife and some children. We all love going down to Fort Myers for the beaches, fishing, shopping, dining, you name it! We have twins (boy & girl) and for awhile they thought I owned the whole complex, since we'd go down in the off-season and see very few people. So naturally they thought it was all mine..I wish!
Why the Owner Chose Davis Woods: We live in a northern suburb of New York City. I am a home improvement contractor. In addition to the beaches, fishing, etc. I also like to putter around the house and fix things. So inevitably while we are there on vacation a few times a year, I will visit one of my favorite stores: Home Depot and make some repairs or upgrades to the place. Last year I installed two new toilets and bath exhaust fans and a year prior we added a full size stack able washer/dryer. When we arrive I always do an inspection and see what if anything needs to be fixed or looks like it could use some TLC. Strangely, my kids like going to Home Depot as much as I do so we are sure to make that one of our vacation stops.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: In the afternoon, there is no greater pleasure than to sit out on the lanai with my feet up, watching the giant American Flag over Tanger Outlet Shops sway in the balmy Gulf Breezes with a nice refreshing cocktail in hand and just watch the sun go down. And if that does not work for you, our snowbirds have their own Happy Hour down at the pool in the afternoon.
