Daniel Grahl purchased this House in 1994
Why Daniel Grahl chose Fort Myers
It would be very difficult to find another home of such rare natural beauty so close to everything, yet it feels like you are far, far away.

Like living in Paradise!
This beautiful home is just a mile walk to the Cypress Slough preserve where you can go on a boardwalk trail to view wildlife. The home itself was immaculately clean and had wrap around porches on three sides. The bed was extremely comfortable and we had everything we needed for a 9 day stay. It was wonderful that there are plenty of towels and sheets provided. There were also beach chairs and an umbrella which was very helpful to us. Our landlord was a wonderful host - friendly and helpful in every way. He lives right nearby so it was reassuring to know he was there if we had any issues. We didn't use the hot tub or the saltwater pool but they would certainly be nice to have. Little details were included such as hand soap at the sinks and tissues and paper towels provided. There were two comfortable recliners at the end of a sectional couch which helped my husband and I are as we were recovering from medical issues. There are comfortable chairs out on the porch as well as a padded swing that looks out over a gorgeous landscape of foliage. It looks exactly like the picture that is posted. There is also a deck around the above ground pool where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine as well as tubes provided for floating in the water. There are tables for eating outdoors on the pool deck as well as the porch. The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood -peaceful and serene.
