Recent Fort Myers Beach reviews

  • Enjoyed!!

    "Very cute home. The beach was not far from the house at all. House was clean and kitchen was nice and neat. The AC is a bit big for the house, so we had to keep it high so it does not get FREEZING! Especially at night. Cute little fire place that has a fake crackling noise that can make naps sooo relaxing."

  • Family Getaway

    "We spent a week in this beautiful location at the end of February. We had lovely weather and lots of fun times on the beach. Our 2 1/2 year old Grandson had a fun time making sandcastles on the beach, and dipping his feet in the water. We did bring a kite along and had fun flying that on the beach. The wagons are so nice to haul all of the stuff. It is only a very short walk to the beach. We were able to go on a boat ride in Ft. Myers with some friends who live down there and we had dolphins swimming right behind the boat. We did ride the trolley a few times, but sometimes the traffic getting to the pier was so slow, it was quicker to walk. We enjoyed just sitting in the pool when the 8 month old was taking a nap, or when it was a little cooler out. We found some fun places to eat. We did cook some meals and the 2 full kitchens were really nice to have. The small bedroom was perfect for the little guy. Everything was just perfect! Thanks for a great time and lots of wonderful memories."

  • Great holidays from the first moment

    "My family (2adults,4teenager) just came back from this gorgeous place. We had two great weeks in this beautiful beach house that answers every whish one could possibly have in advance. Awesome view, plenty of chairs on the screened porch and deck, spacious home with private bathrooms for all three bedrooms, excellent equipped kitchen, plenty beach towels, and just 30 seconds to reach the beach.....best in the morning was drinking coffee while watching birds and dolfins, in the evening waiting for the sunset. We made trips by boat, went to Sanibel, to the everglades, Audubon’s Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, outlet center…. The house manager lives right behind the house is very friendly and always helpful. We hope to come back with family or friends."

    "Vacation was excellent. The condo was well equipped with dishes,linens,and spacious. The views were great, front door the gulf and back screened patio intercoastal water ways. Restaurants,drugstore,marina, and entertainment well within walking distances. State parks short drive away and of course plenty of shopping closeby. Just cross Estero Blvd and there was the sandy beach!!"

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.
