About Nathalie Makepeace

My husband and I moved to Fort Myers Beach after falling in love with the beaches, the sunsets, the bird life, the people and the island feeling. After two short years we moved to the East Coast of Florida but could not give up our house. We loved that the house was on the canal with dolphins and manatees swimming by, on a quiet street and yet just a five minute walk to an incredible beach. So, we decided to rent it. We have lived all over the country; Virginia, Connecticut, New York, Ohio, Chicago, DC and Northern California (Germany too) loving all our homes but we hope to retire one day back on Fort Myers Beach! In the meantime we hope all our guest enjoy their stay.

Nathalie and Lewis - Lake Worth, FL.

Nathalie Makepeace purchased this house in 2003

Why Nathalie Makepeace chose Fort Myers Beach

I loved the Key West style of the house and the location so near to one of the most beautiful sugar sand white beaches!

What makes this house unique

The house is on a cul-de-sac and thus has some relaxing views of the back bay which can be enjoyed from the living areas and the large wrap around deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved the house, especially the pool and the wrap around deck. It was perfect for our dog Maizy who enjoyed barking at the birds...We hope to return next year."

Quiet and pleasant place

  • 4 of 5

The house is as described, kitchen well furnished, amazing pool and lots of water toys. The only things that disappointed us are TV very old and very few choice of channel.

The cleaning wasn't done when we arrived but the property manager was easy to contact, and cleaning was finished in the evening.

Nice place, close to beach.

  • 4 of 5

Spacious house, large pool, close to beach. Perfectly equipped house. Wonderful and wide beach section with powdery sand. Only minus point in our opinion is that furnishing is worn out and all a bit old fashioned. Owner contact was very efficient and pleasant.

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Paradise Place was wonderful. Everything we hoped for and more. A spacious home with comfortable beds and a fantastic layout. We spend mornings and evenings eating breakfast and dinners outside and used the beautiful warm pool every day. The location is perfect. Quiet neighborhood but close to activity. The beach is just a short walk. The Fort Myers sand, water and sunsets are amazing. This house offers everything a family of four needs to enjoy a relaxing vacation. Thank you Nathalie for the terrific communication prior to our trip. We will definitely be returning. Please note, we purchased a couple boogie boards for body surfing but didn’t have the space to take them back on the plane so we donated them to your place. I hope that is okay. Thanks again for everything. We thoroughly enjoyed are week at Paradise Place.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Paradise Place. The house has everything you could need during your stay: a well equipped kitchen, plenty of beach and pool towels and beach chairs and umbrella. The kids loved all the pool and beach toys available. The covered deck is great. We've had every meal outside. This house is very spacious. We also want to thank Nathalie as she was available and quick to react to our little issue. We would definitely go back !!

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We stayed mid June and enjoyed a good location away from the centre of Fort Myers beach, but within a short tram or taxi ride to the main areas of the town.

Facilities in the home were great, all mod cons are available and the home is clean and neat. The living area is comfortable and welcoming and due to some not so good weather, for the first time we had rented a home in Florida, we used it a lot and felt comfortable and cosy.

The wrap around seating area outside is absolutely perfect for eating breakfast or reading a book and the views towards the bay are much better than the pictures portray. This made my holiday. When it began to thunder, all the birds flew over from the bay over the house and this was lovely. Squirrels run around outside the lanai and birds sit on the roof, so it's a nature lovers paradise here!

Wi fi worked really well and was welcomed ( bad weather!!) and there are books in the case if you run out.

Taxi service into town if needed, is efficient and very affordable, but if you want a 5 minute walk to see the sunset with a cocktail or beer, try the Outrigger tiki bar just across the main road at the end of the street. For eats, try Charley's boathouse right at the end of the street or Pincers crab shack which is around 10 minutes walk. Publix supermarket is a 5 minute car ride away and behind that is a great place to hire a boat for a day at the marina at a decent price.

All in all a great stay and we had a lovely time.

A short walk down the street provides access to the beach where you will find one of the largest and whitest beaches ever. It is amazing...Do not miss the sunsets while sipping your favorite drink from the outdoor beach bar located at the Outrigger Resort! Or enjoy a day at Lover's Key State Park located just a couple minutes south of us. the deserted natural beaches are just beautiful and it is where I find the best shells, especially right after high tide and on the south end. There are so many near by activities. Some include: fishing, kayaking, boating, shelling, biking, para-sailing and jet skiing, motor scooter rentals, golf/miniature golf, shopping (outlet) and great restaurants. A short drive or trolley ride can take you to Times Square, the nearby fun public pier full of shopping, sightseeing, and restaurants. Boat rentals at local marinas are available or bring your own and enjoy the use of the boat dock and lift at the house. Nearby locations to visit include Sanibel and Captiva Islands, and Naples or enjoy local establishments in the city of Fort Myers. But with all of this, just renting a cabana, soaking up the sun and relaxing on the beach is my favorite!
