About Keith Rigsby

Sunset House is our personal 'beach house'. After purchasing in December 2007 we invested many hours and dollars in a complete remodel and new boat-fishing dock. Originally from Southern Illinois, growing up on the Ohio River, I have always been a water lover. Sunset House is a dream come true. Come enjoy our dream, but if you are not here, we will definitely enjoy it for you!!

Keith Rigsby purchased this house in 2007

Why Keith Rigsby chose Florida South West

Sunset HOuse is just 30 minutes from our home, but a world away. San Carlos Island/Ft. Myers Beach are totally fantastic, if you can't relax here, good luck at home!!!!

What makes this house unique

Quiet single family neighborhood.. 12 to 15 minute walk to Times Square/Pier area of Ft Myers Beach. Fun days, quiet nights. Best of both worlds.....

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than we expected! My daughters had a wonderful time playing in the pool and hot tub. We also loved that dolphins came right up to the dock almost every day. They were so fun to watch! My oldest daughter even saw a Manatee swim under our dock while she was out fishing one night. The owner went above and beyond when we forgot a loved stuffed animal at the house and shipped it back to us very quickly. Well worth the money and very relaxing property! Great vacation!

Sunset stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time at Sunset House. We saw Dolphins everyday plus Manatees, Turtles, Rays and Tarpon. We fished off the dock and caught Rays, Snook, Snapper, Jacks and too many bait stealing Catfish. We all loved the pool. The builders next door were quite noisy but we soon got used to them.

Fabulous & wonderful accommodation/location

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a girls' 25th Year reunion ! A family would love it as well. Location location location! It is close to everything (beach, restaurants, boat rentals, shopping), great amenities, and wonderful owner, so accommodating. It will sleep 10 but seven adults comfortably. It had everything we needed. We felt like if we did need something that wasn't there, Keith would have gotten it for us. The price was in our budget and was a good price for the time of year we went the first week of May. The pool and hot tub were a great place for gathering and socializing and swimming. The accommodations were very clean. At the end of the dock we sat, drank coffee and evening drinks. We watched for manatees and other wildlife and boats going by as well as sun sets that were spectacular. We would recommend this wonderful place and come back again ourselves! Thanks Keith!

Another perfect trip to Sunset House. My family and I stayed for our recurring week at the house. Keith continues to make our vacation one that we cannot wait to come back to. I would recommend this home to anyone, any time.

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

If you have read the other reviews, you know the story -- Sunset House is a wonderful and relaxing getaway. The bay view is wonderful, and sitting on the pool deck or the dock is guaranteed to lower your blood pressure. Keith was very good to work with, professional and responsive. He keeps the pool and spa very warm at no extra cost, which is a real plus for the winter months. The house is well maintained and well stocked. You can walk to Bonita Bills, Dixie Fish, and Doc Fords in less than 10 minutes. In 20 minutes you can walk over the bridge to Ft Myers beach and the many restaurants and bars there. We stayed for a month, and the separate apartment downstairs worked perfectly for the visitors we had during our stay. Bottom line: clearly 5 stars.
