About Rob Bennett

Jeff and Sandra fell in love with the area, and then the house. It was ultimately purchased to be the place they would retire to, and use a few weeks each year with the family in the meantime. But Jeff is one of those people who refuses to stop until things are perfect. It shows in this home. Sandra is almost as good, and is the one who knows where the brake pedal is . They were so concerned that their guests would be happy and thoroughly enjoy this beautiful property, they would have to go back to their current home and jobs to stop working on this one. This property has been a labor of love, and it's very obvious.

Rob Bennett purchased this house in 2017

Why Rob Bennett chose Iona

Jeff and Sandra's Chip Inn caters to all tastes. From beaches to golf, tennis to shopping, or just kicking back and relaxing around this beautiful property. Well-behaved dogs under 40 pounds are welcome: HOA rules, not the owners, They love all dogs. If you don't fell like running around, grab a cup of coffee and a chair to sit and watch the Blue Herons, Wood Storks, Cranes, and any number of other Florida and migratory birds,,,it's a great show!

What makes this house unique

Lees Summit, Mo.

Great View of Golf Course.

  • 3 of 5

Nice older home. What we loved about this home was watching the golfers on the 12th hole. What we did not like is we thought it was overpriced since we could not use the garage or unheated pool.

A must-go is the historic downtown and riverfront area in fort Myers. A lively collection of restaurants and saloons ranging from fun/funky to high end. there are usually live bands on the weekends, and some of the most amazing metal statues and scenes ever. It's family-friendly and/or a great time for just adults, and there's always a nice crowd. The shops are amazingly eclectic, and the waterfront walk is nothing short of beautiful.

Fort Myers Beach is a great night-spot for adults, and is very casual and generally boisterous. The beach there is great for small kids, as the water is quite shallow, and the gulf water has very little wave action.

The Ford and Edison winter estates make for a great 1/2 day, and Pinchers and Joe's Crab Shack are right there for a great family meal on the water.

If beaches are your 'thing', Sanibel and Captiva Islands are unsurpassed for a great day at the beach. About 20 miles to the south is Lover's Key Beach, which was included in the Top 20 beaches in the US.

Deep Sea, Bay, and Backwater Fishing guides, charters, and party boats are abundant. So if you like fishing, you'll be very happy!

There are many restaurants close by, but if you want a great Italian dinner, try Cibo's, which is on McGregor Blvd. It doesn't matter what you order, it will be great, The service is impeccable, and the wine list is surprisingly extensive. This is a great 'date night' destination. It's about six miles away.

For the kids, Zoomers miniature golf and go karts is just down the road, and Smugglers Cove Golf is really cool and has live alligators!
