  • Very Extended Family Vacation

    "We spent a week in October at this beach front home. My wife and I along with our daughter and her family, and my mother in law, father and an older aunt. In all, we had 7 adults and 3 children. Kids were 2, 8, and 13. My father is 87. We all loved the place. It is an older home, but is clean and very well suited for family vacations. Four bedrooms allowed all of our group to have a bedroom and their own bath which helps greatly when this large a group tries to get ready to go. The beach was wonderful and we could sit and view it from the enclosed lanai or the open deck. Pool was the most outstanding feature for our kids.....4 different levels with one being about 6 inches so you could walk around on top of the slab, but in the water, another level about 2 feet to wade, third was maybe 3.5 feet for midrange kids to swim in, then the main part slopes from about 4 foot to 6 foot or better at the deep end. Worked really well for our group with a 2 year old, 8 year old and 13 year old and adults. Kitchen/dining area was large enough for us to all eat together (important for our family) and the living room was also large enough or us to gather. The electronics and interior could use some updates, but we were not there for TV and electronics, and it was clean and well kept. We did not eat out a lot as with a group that size it is difficult, but it was obvious that there was plenty to do in terms of eating or nightlife. We liked the fact that it was a short trip to the Everglades. Spent a day down there doing Airboat, Swamp Buggy, gator show, wildlife viewing, etc. Really good day and the Airboat was my 87 year old father's favorite part. This destination and location will definitely go in my "for future vacations" file. The owner, Stephanie was also very open, honest, and easy to deal with. Recommend this location with no limitations."

  • Great Unit and Location!!

    "Our first trip to the Fort Myers Beach area to celebrate my 60th birthday. This was our first Condo Rental, and everything was exactly as described, and then some! Really cute unit, great views, and supplied with everything you could need-just bring your clothes! Pool was nice and warm, never crowded, and the beach was just a few steps away. Liked the quieter end of the island, with Santini Plaza across the street that has restaurants and shops you can walk to. Traffic was not an issue this time of year, and Times Square was just a 10 minute drive up the road. Peggy was wonderful to work with-answered everything very quickly, and returned our security deposit almost before we got home! Thanks for making this a great birthday! Colleen and Ron"

  • Great Vacation!

    "My husband and I had such a wonderful time here. Jack and Connie were exceptional hosts. The condo was perfect for the two of us! We sat on the balcony every morning and evening with a view of both the gulf and the bay. The king bed was very comfortable. The condo was very clean and was well stocked with everything you would need and more. The pool was warm with plenty of chairs to use either by the pool or on the grass for sun or shade. Jack provided chairs and umbrella to take to the beach which were especially nice to watch the sunsets, and a great beach to walk too. Location, location, location!!! There are 7 restaurants and a CVS right across the street, not to mention a produce stand. We would love to return next year if we are able to get away!"

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.

Lovers Key State Park: Lovers Key is one of four barrier islands that make up the park.
