Recent Fort Myers Beach reviews

  • Excellent Spring Break FAMILY vacation!

    "We just loved our stay at the Beach House! The location was absolutely perfect - just steps from being on the beautiful beach and the pool/lani was so private, well manicured & the perfect temp for evening dips in the pool after being at the white sandy beaches all day. The house was super clean and decorated in a cute beach theme (hence the name) and had all the comforts of home plus more! From the bottle of wine, sand buckets, shovels, beach chairs, umbrella and a beach cart who could ask for more?! Our 2 kids & 3 dogs had a blast exploring the yard for little lizards and we spent countless hours at the beach finding all sorts of sea life and beautiful shells. We were there during a peak week of Spring Break and had no problems with loud neighbors or drunks on the beach like you might find at other beach hot spots. The Beach House is the perfect family friendly getaway. Todd & Mary were wonderful to work with and provided us with so much helpful information before our trip. We would also recommend Charlie's Steakhouse only a 2 minute drive from the house. They had an awesome huge salad bar and reasonably priced for families with kids."

  • Top notch condo

    "Had a wonderful vacation in this apartment. While Smugglers Cove is an older complex, it is very well maintained and has a spectacular location on the best part of the beach. The pool is warm and clean, and there are lots of lounge chairs available at the pool and on the grass by the beach. John, the owner, is very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed, even going to the trouble of getting grab bars for the tub when he knew we would have a senior with us. The apartment is nicely renovated and equipped with everything you could want. We found the location perfect for visiting Sanibel, Naples, Everglades etc, and the Publix is just a short walk away. Nothing beats a long walk along the beach at sunset, or eating breakfast on the lanai while watching pelicans fishing and dolphins jumping through the waves. If we come back to Fort Myers Beach again we won't even consider any other apartment. We couldn't do better than this."

  • Perfect :-)

    "This was the best rental home we have had in the US within our pricerange. It was superclean (I was a bit worried before we arrived since this was a pet-friendly home, and I am allergic to cats/dogs), was well equipped in kitchen (not rental-equipped, but home-equipped), and we loved the outdoorarea where we ate most meals with a choice of bayview or canal-view. The pool was big and also very clean. Owner was a pleasure to cooperate with during the prosess of rental and always answering ,mails/messages in a very friendly and serviceminded way. Would not hesitate to rent this house again if visiting Ft Myers Beach again. Actually, this house is better than the pictures shows."

  • Cozy Cottage

    "We really enjoyed this charming cottage. It had everything we needed and we were sooo... close to the gulf and the square. Neighbors were all very friendly and helpful. We frequented many restaurants and bars. Especially liked Nervous Nellies and Pinchers. The dog beach is really cool too. We would recommend this rental to anyone."

Fort Myers Beach Travel Tips

More than 6,200 people call Fort Myers Beach home. This town located on Estero Island wasn't officially incorporated until December 1995, making it a newer Floridian hotspot. Although Fort Myers Beach may be small, more than 1.8 million visitors flock there every year to enjoy the beaches, fishing, shopping, dining, golf and entertainment along the Gulf.

There's no undertow in Fort Myers Beach, making it the "World's Safest Beach" and perfect for families who want to get their toes wet. The entire island is 7 miles long, a nice walk or jog for those who want to work in a little exercise on their trip.

The area that was once home to Native Americans and Spaniards is a favorite among tourists who dine on "pink gold" shrimp and celebrate the fishing industry with the week-long Shrimp Festival held in March.

Fort Myers Beach Attractions

There's a lot to do on the tiny island of Estero including water sports, beach activities and outdoor and indoor attractions. There are 25 public beach accesses on the Gulf side of Estero Island that are marked for easy spotting.

There are 17 acres of fun on the northern tip of Estero Island at Bowditch Point Regional Park. For more protected wildlife areas, check out the Matanzas Pass Wildlife Preserve with a restored cottage, 42 acres of wilderness and a sanctuary for native plants and animals. Seven acres are developed for a park and the rest remains part of a preservation. There are boardwalks that allow visitors to Estero Back Bay access to observe ospreys and pelicans as they fish for food. Kayaks and canoes are available at Oyster Bay and Lovers Key Barrier Island.
