River District house description

Book your visit to paradise today. Watch the majestic sunsets from your backyard, the Caloosahatchee River with a bottle of wine. Fish off our seawall or our new 100 foot long dock, simply watch the dolphins (which have swam up to the dock), manatees and tarpon jump from our living room. Some of the best tarpon, snook and redfish fishing is close by.

Share the same scenic river view that lead Thomas Edison and Henry Ford to build their Winter Estates on the Caloosahatchee River five minutes south of our house.

Wake up to the sparkling Caloosahatchee River in the master bedroom has a fabulous view of the water.

Kayak to a private Islands in front of our house, or kick back and relax watching cable TV one of the LCD flat screen TVs. Large fenced in private yard.

We have tried to think of all the little things to have in the house such as shampoo, conditioner and soap dispensers in each shower. Our goal is not only for you to enjoy the house but to come back every year.

Short drive to two great beaches (Sanibel and Fort Myers Beach). Approximately 2 miles from downtown Fort Myers. Additional housekeeping service available for $100 per cleaning.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We live and work a short distance from this house in Fort Myers. This house is our second house and we have completely remodeled it. We love the water and always wanted a house that was on the river.

                  Why the Owner Chose River District:
                  We bought this property because of the amazing sunrises and sunsets as well as the privacy. We are minutes away from all of the exceptional restaurants and entertainment of the Downtown Fort Myers River District. Completely fenced in back yard.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Fish from your back yard or pull your boat up to the back yard dock. Sunrise and sunsets are beautiful and must be seen. You will not be disappointed.
