Recent Fort Myers Beach reviews

  • Wonderful getaway!

    "My family of 5, husband & I, 3 adult children and one's girlfriend & one's boyfriend stayed the week of New Year's and it was truly a wonderful getaway! The owner, Karen, was personable, great to work with and her home was exactly as you see on the website, and then some! The pool and tiki bar made us feel like we were at a resort. The privacy it offered was perfect. The house was big enough for 7 adults to enjoy time together and quiet time. The beds were SO comfortable. The house had everything we needed and very clean. I loved the beach themed decorations throughout the house. The beautiful beach is only a few minutes walk away. The neighborhood is nice & quiet. There's a trolley stop at the end of the street that we waited at on New Year's Eve to go to Times Square. We rented a pontoon boat one day that was sunny with a beautiful blue sky and everyone had a great time being on the water. We had lunch one day at the restaurant, Junkanoo and with the floor to ceiling open windows we enjoyed a great view of the beach. This house was perfect in every way & so conducive to getting lots of R&R. Everyone said they'd love to come back and all of us will look forward to being here again!"

  • Perfect Christmas Vacation!

    "The description and pictures do not do this property justice. This cottage is beautifully decorated and well maintained. You do not need anything other than your personal belongings and food as it has all the necessities you require: stocked kitchen utensils, quality linens and towels including beach towels, beach bag (thankfully since I forgot mine), chairs and beach toys. The location is perfect and within walking distance to restaurants, bike rentals, shopping, Topps Grocery and one of the local churches. The screened porch was the perfect place for breakfast in the mornings and cocktails in the evening while watching the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see. There are numerous options for water sports/activities along the beach. We opted for bike rides, beach walks, reading and relaxing. The beach in front of the cottage is not as crowded as the area down by the pier. My husband and I have traveled to Ft Myers Beach numerous times. This was the first time at this property but we are already making plans for our next visit here. Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven on earth with us!"

  • Love your home!!

    "We thank you for sharing your beautiful home! You have been so good in communicating with us every step of the way. Everything from the furniture to the dishes were of great quality, every room was spacious and clean......love the en-suite! The pool/spa was clean and a great place for the whole family to be. Love how the pool overlooks the canal. Even the local people are great! The area is just beautiful with flowering plants and trees in December! Short walk to the beach (the little red wagon was so useful), beautiful coast line with miles to walk. Ft Myers Beach has the best New Years firework display ever. So much to do, jet ski, kayaking, air boat through the Everglades, shopping, walking or just relaxing on the deck which has sun all day!....it was a holiday to remember.....highly recommend! Thanks again."

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.

You can stop by one of several playgrounds and parks in Fort Myers Beach. Head to Lynn Hall Memorial Park, where you can fish off of a 600-foot pier. Sports lovers can venture over to Bay Oaks Recreation Center for basketball, tennis and volleyball courts.

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.
