Live like a local on the 2nd floor of this delightful family home just a few minutes' walk from the beach! Bay views abound, while indoors every room is furnished with retro charm and perfect comfort.
Is it the splashes of color that make 1930 Bayview so irresistible, or the soft light coming through the diaphanous white drapes? Or perhaps the combination of vintage furniture with up-to-the-minute HDTV technology and sparkling new appliances? Whatever the magic, this upstairs cottage has more style and presence than most contemporary condos. From the moment you ascend the outdoor staircase to the pretty front porch (with colored lights and a bistro table overlooking the garden), you will know that you have chosen wisely for your Fort Myers vacation!
Enter the living room of this cottage and you are greeted by inviting overstuffed couches, 2 luxurious recliners, a big HDTV with cable (you also have free WiFi here, by the way), a homey fireplace, and a silently spinning ceiling fan. Soft lamplight replaces the bright Florida sun, soft carpet soothes those tired walking feet, and the setting is perfect for an evening at home.
Now you need some snacks and drinks. If you have brought groceries to 1930 Bayview, you will love how easy it is to transform them into something delicious in this kitchen. Cheery teal walls and retro-look cupboards and counters make mixing up a blender of frothy beverages just a little more fun. And even if you've vowed to avoid the stove while on vacation, the well-stocked shelves and sparkling appliances here may just change your mind . . . No? Okay. Well, feel free to use the dishes, glasses, utensils, and countertop time-savers to dish up the takeout, get your morning coffee perked, and reheat leftovers!
There's a little breakfast nook in one corner of the table just made for two, or for one with a laptop, tablet, sketch pad, or book! Clear the decks and play gin rummy, upload new pictures to your social media sites, or indulge in a little old-fashioned postcard writing in this bright, welcoming spot!
And if you want to have a family meal (or a larger board game!), retire to the sunny, breezy dining room. This is a truly beautiful part of the house, where you can dine or play surrounded by big windows. The padded chairs, good lighting, and ceiling fan all conspire to make you linger much longer than you planned. Ah, the pleasures of being "off the clock" on vacation!
When the last score has been tallied and the bowl of chips is just crumbs, it's time to think about retiring for the night. At 1930 Bayview, this is always a happy thought. The two bedrooms here are both immaculately maintained and nicely situated. Each has a queen-sized bed, ceiling fan, plenty of storage space for vacation togs, and big windows. You're well off the road here, so it's quiet at night and very restful.
The bathroom at 1930 Bayview has both a shower and tub option, and is equipped with a full set of fresh towels and washcloths. (Both beds have fresh linens as well.) There is even a washer and dryer to keep it all clean -- a real boon when your day might involve a trip to the beach and/or the bay!
1930 Bayview is located in the northern section of Fort Myers Beach, convenient to downtown sights and the trolley line. It sits in an area of great natural beauty, with water all around, and you will love watching for tropical birds each morning and evening. Feel free to come downstairs and use the big back patio, a wonderful place for a leisurely breakfast or an after-dinner drink.
You are never far from lovely sunrises and sunsets at 1930 Bayview, in your little oasis of calm and quiet. Experience the beauty for yourself -- book your stay here today!

Needs new kitchen sink plumbing. Excellent location and peaceful upstairs ambience. Excellent TV
Assessment on VRBO that it needs some upgrades is accurate, but new mattresses and kitchen sink plumbing would have enhanced our experience most. We enjoyed the location, the peace of top floor living, and TV connections when we weren’t outdoors.
Great location! Quaint and comfortable.
This was one of the funnest locations we have stayed at in the Fort Myers Beach area. Great location to beach and Time Square, yet quit and private
Over all we enjoyed our stay. The place could use some updating but it was clean and the location was convenient to everything. We loved the patio and spent quite a few evenings sitting outside and enjoying the beautiful weather.
A few suggestions - having beach towels available along with some nice beach chairs would definitely be a nice bonus. Also, having a list of where to find things such as the washer and dryer and the (not so great) beach chairs as well as how to access the wi-fi would be helpful. I would also suggest doing something about outside lighting - there is none in the patio area and the lights out front didn't seem to be working (located by the garage door). Also we did have a few issues with the keyless entry and had to make a few calls to get it squared away.
Overall our stay was very nice and we had a great time.
Bayview is definitely convenient and you can not go wrong with it's location.
