    "Stay in this cottage you will not be sorry, you will only get closer to the water if you sleep on the beach! Cottage is clean with everything we needed owner very hands on and helpful close to the action for those who want it but far enough away for those who don't.This is a cozy clean cute perfect cottage, next year We will do three weeks!

  • GREAT LOCATION GREAT HOME GREAT COMMUNICTION

    "We were impressed that the home was only 300 steps to the beach. If you are planning a vacation during peak season this home is perfect. Park your car and walk or take the trolley to get to your destination. The home is extremely clean and offers every type of utensil imaginable for cooking. The kitchen is large enough for three people to be preparing meals at one time without getting in each others way.The pool area very nice but not much sunshine due to the trees and landscaping to keep it private. There is a plaza behind the home but not much noise. We are planning on returning again in September or October. Carolyn was out of town during our arrival but her son made certain everything was ready upon our arrival. We took care of the home just as we do our own and left it at clean as possible on our departure. Stripped the linens and put them in the washer in appreciation of a good experience in renting. The only down side is there are a lot of stairs to a bathroom from the pool area. Highly Recommend."

  • Best location on FT Myers Beach

    "I was fortunate enough to find this wonderful condo. The owners were wonderful to work with us. The condo was very clean, kitchen was well equipped and many towels. The newer washer and dryer were wonderful and the view was absolutely breath taking. The grounds were very clean and a nice big pool. The big walk in shower in master was a plus. The kitchen is beautiful and the furniture very nice. Hopefully we can come back next year. Highly recommended. Lafayette, In"

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.
