About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Save your vacation money just like these owners did by being across the street from the water rather than on the beach! Gorgeous 3/2 house with vaulted ceilings and Tommy Bahama decor! Everything you could possibly need has been provided, along with directions to get everywhere you want either On island, or OFF, and over into Bonita Springs or Naples! We have created this hospitality to have everything you could ever want to use on vacation, and have it there, waiting for your arrival! So just bring your swimsuit, toothbrush, and sweater for the dining air conditioning!

It is actually a 'stilt' home, but looks like a large 2 story house. There are stairs to the front and back, to easily access the beach, which is across the street, in back. Enjoy your meals on the 'lanai' (a screened porch down here) with the fans going overhead, and a laid back relaxing vacation!

This house is located at the south end of the island, away from the 'carnival' atmosphere of North Ft. Myers Beach, where all the motels & arcades are crowded together, and traffic on the only main street is slower then walking! The trolley is available for around 75 cents/person, and makes this area easier to get to. Instead, you can drive south along the 3 short islands, through Lovers Key State Park, past beach mansions in Bonita Beach, and on into Bonita Springs or Naples, playground of millionaires all year long!

From beaching, to boating, seeing the fabulous wildlife, gourmet dining, incredible shopping, (all outside-remember, it's 70+ degrees in January!) theater, dancing, and something to satisfy every style or appetite, you'll start to understand why people really do feel this is paradise, and you will want to stay or return as often as possible! Thirty minutes from the airport, door to door! Hurry down and be prepared to want to stay forever!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful week we had staying in your lovely home! It was just perfect for us! The bikes worked out great! The island is so beautiful and we ate, drank and were merry! It is definitely a place we would like to visit again! All of the information in the house was so useful! Thanks again for all of your help and we look forward to visiting again!

Comfortable beach house with great customer service

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 enjoyed the comfort of this beach house during winter break. It is a close walk to the beach and and less than a 5 minute drive to Lover's Key State Park where you can enjoy another beautiful beach, kayaking and biking. It is easy to walk to the beach from the house with the beach cart that is provided. The kitchen is large and is well equipped and the beds were all very comfortable. It was great to have two comfortable bathrooms to use as well and beach towels and chairs. Molly was great to work with and very reliable. This was our first visit to Fort Meyers Beach and we loved it!

Great rental and awesome host!!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay on short notice to escape hurricane Matthew. Owner was super responsive and accommodating, she went out of her way to make sure me and my family had everything we needed. The house is very nice, well appointed, had everything one would need for a beachside vacation. Bikes, beach equipment, towels, etc. Our favorite feature of the house is the balcony which is accessible from the kitchen and MBR. We thoroughly enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony while being bathed in warm sun and ocean breeze. We will come back again soon. Thank you Molly!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking such good care of the BUCC house during your short stay during Hurricane Matthew! Thank goodness your home didn't have any storm damage. I'm glad we had gorgeous weather to welcome your family. Hopefully your next trip over to the west coast will give you additional time to enjoy the beach, restaurants, or boat tours. I look forward to hearing from you!

Absolutely Great

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a great stay over the July 4th holiday. The house had everything we needed, was in a quiet, relaxing location, and was conveniently located close to the beach and Lovers Key State Park. My wife enjoyed taking a bike to get ice cream and coffee and the kids and I had a blast exploring the beach. The mangoes from the tree were delicious!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your fun description of your stay at the BUCC house! I wish you had taken about 2 bushels of mangos! We have more then we can use, but I'm sure the neighbors will enjoy a few bags of fresh fruit~ Please tell your friends, we'd love to have our Midwest neighbors return to enjoy a bit of Iowa on the Gulf of Mexico :-) Molly

Awesome Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Four of us enjoyed a week at the "BUCC" house, which is an awesome vacation home--a true find on Fort Myers Beach. It's in a quiet location, yet close to sandy beaches, shops and restaurants galore! Everything you need is provided, including 4 adult bicycles and helmets, beach chairs, beach towels, a variety of coolers, and kids' beach toys. The house is clean and well cared for, with plenty of pillows, towels, blankets, seating, and everything you need in the kitchen. The second-floor lanai is also a relaxing treat for sunsets and breezes. Owner, Molly, knows the area well and communicated frequently pre-trip, providing us with all sorts of ideas for our vacation. Thanks for an awesome winter retreat! We hope to return!

Owner's Response: Woo hoo Terri, thank you for your descriptive response! I am almost at a loss for words...but when I heard how c.o.l.d. it was in the upper Midwest, I knew I had to pull every bit of warmth into the sunny days here! I've tried to furnish the house with all the extras like pillows & blankets, because I know how easy it is to burrow in, when the air conditioning is blowing. Look at your calendar & figure out next year's vaca--I'll hold your spot if you tell me! 😁

Above and Beyond!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 2 weeks at the "BUCC" house and couldn't have asked for a better experience! From the initial contact and correspondence with the owner to the actual stay at the house, it was all beyond what was expected. Loved the location of the house - on the quiet end of the island but very close to stores and most importantly, the beach! Just a short walk away is a beautiful white sandy beach with a lovely view of the pass and Lovers' Key. A beach cart, coolers, and beach chairs were all there for our use! The house itself was extremely clean and very well appointed. I immediately felt comfortable there. Spent many relaxing hours on the lanai enjoying the beautiful breeze and the view.

Another wonderful month at Buccaneer House

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful stay at this comfortable house.Large rooms with comfy beds and a kitchen with all of the cooking utensils you will need during your stay.The owner is very responsive to any needs you might have.The house is located on the south end in a quiet ,friendly neighborhood. There are lots of birds to see as well as nesting eagles and ospreys on your early morning walks. The sunsets are gorgeous and just a short walk across the street to the beach for that perfect picture to post on Facebook!!We will be back.

Map

Nearest Airport
30 Miles
30-45 minutes
Car: necessary

You are 3 minutes from the most beautiful state park in all of Florida (Lover's Key), with nature at it's finest. The best beaches and activities. Another 5 minutes and you are in Barefoot Beach Park, with the tortiose' crossing the road and bald eagles overhead, speaking of which, a pair of eagles are starting a nest in a neighbor's pine tree. Also, you can be in a boat on the back bay in a half hour including the paperwork, with dolphins & manatees all around!
