110 Hercules is a one of a kind home on Fort Myers Beach. Built as a barn style home it is very unique to the island. It's large and spacious inside, with three levels of living space, containing 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and an in-ground heated pool. Best of all this home is located just 4 homes off Estero Blvd., providing you with direct beach access only a 1 minute walk from the house. This home sleeps a maximum of 8 guests.
The living room is located on the second level of the house, and opens to the large screened in second story deck. TV and DVD player can be found in the living room for those late night shows or movies. The open concept kitchen, remodeled in the winter of 2016, is fully stocked with everything, and has modern, newer appliances, beautiful crisp white cabinets accented with black granite counters. Eat your meals at the breakfast bar, formal dining table, out on the lanai, or down by the pool. Two bedrooms and one full bath are on the second level.
The first bedroom has a king size bed, that can be converted to two twins if desired, and an in-room TV. The second bedroom has two twin beds. Both share a full bath in the hallway. The third level has the master bedroom with expansive back deck that it perfect for sunning. This area also provides partial Gulf views. The master bedroom has a king size bed and in-room TV.

Ground level you'll find your own private washer/dryer, and in-ground electric heated pool. Spend hours sunning poolside while cooling off with a dip in the pool. There's a large exterior poolside shower, grill for BBQ, and plenty of out door seating and lounge furniture. Relax at the poolside tiki bar and enjoy the Florida lifestyle.
Discover the hidden treasure at the other end of the road; a deeded neighborhood fishing dock on Estero Bay. Direct fishing and boating access are here for your use. Or just enjoy sitting bayside in the early morning hours watching the sunrise, and beach side in the evening watching the sunset.
Your own private washer and dryer, high speed wireless internet, crib, high chair, stroller, and much more are included in this rental. For those with allergies this home has been designated a smoke free and pet free home.

Pool / Spa
Home as described...Bad Customer Service.
Home is as as described. Pool was heated and enjoyed. Short walk to nice beach.
Distinctive Beach Rentals disappointed us by failing to inform us about construction that directly impacted the property driveway entrance ALL week (almost damaging wheels each time). Even when they called to confirm we got in OK, they didn’t bring it up. I brought it up to them and did not receive an apology for lack of “heads up”. Mid week the Owner called to ask if a realtor could show the property to a potential buyer. We agreed and then 2 realtors with 2 people each showed up very early (while my elderly mother was still in the shower). In speaking with the owner, he also avoided mentioning the construction and didn’t offer apology for lack of notice either. Simply cared about getting potential buyers in to see the house he is trying to sell.
We know DBR and the owner could not predict the deafening noise we endured 7AM-5PM daily, or the backhoes and bobcats and dump trucks blocking the driveway, but it was the lack of advance notice that was sad as a renter.
I brought all of this up to DBR before writing this review. The excuse for no notice was that “It’s impossible for us to keep our guests advised of the road situations as they change daily here on the island and sometimes even when we are given advance notice of something it doesn't happen as they told us.” Their office is 1.1 miles from this home! Shows lack of customer support to say they could not have pre-warned a customer that is paying $3700+ after all fees to maybe watch out for the metal grate across the driveway. They could walk to this home daily to see conditions. They could ask the job contractor, as I did, and find that they had been on Hercules for weeks, and had weeks to go still. I also suggested that they tell the next renters so they didn’t experience the same shock...and I hope they did.
We’ve used VRBO several times now. Some places have been worse in condition, but better in customer service. It appears obvious that the fear/risk of losing booked weeks outweighed professional integrity by DBR and the owner for purposefully avoiding giving advance warning of conditions that, while out of their control, directly affect the stay of their paying renters.
Again, home was adequate and as described. I would not recommend Distinctive Beach Rentals or Lahaina Realty due to customer service and found MANY other options just walking and driving around FMB.
Tim, We are sorry to hear of your frustrations regarding the construction issue on Fort Myers Beach during your stay. The project has been ongoing and will take a few more years to complete as they install new water lines. The construction crew is very mindful of accommodating the traffic flow and unfortunately there is nothing that can be done regarding the noise. Fort Myers Beach is a very popular tourist destination and has many improvements on the horizon. We are pleased to know that the home was everything as described, you enjoyed the pool and a short walk to the beach. We appreciate your feedback!
It's a beautiful home with a great pool.
We enjoyed the home and pool. It's a very short walk to the beach. We slept 8 people very comfortably. The house was supplied very nicely with all the amenities of home. I would recommend this home for your stay!
Nice home lots of room
The house is nice but pots and pans were in bad shape we went went out and bought a set to be able to cook. Plenty of dishes and glasses and silverware . Could use new dish towels and cloths. Only had one supply of dishwasher detergent. The pool was a bit dirty with leaves and dead lizard.The neighborhood fishing dock is not there it has been torn down a bit of a disappointment. The beach access is wonderful neighbors extremely nice. love the beach. The last night we were there small ants come in from kitchen window above the sink. I left a note I hope it's been addressed. Cleaning fee a bit high I had to ask for a mop and a missing a pillow case. Beds a bit soft for me. Grill a bit small for 8 people. But the location and beach is wonderful
Thank you for your review. We wanted to let you know that the owner has replaced all the linens and put all new pots and pans in the house since your stay. The neighborhood fishing dock that was torn down by the Town of Fort Myers Beach is in the process of being rebuilt in the next few months. A brand new, very nice dock will be there soon for everyone to enjoy. We hope to have you back to see some of the improvements!
Excellent Spring Break!
We cannot say enough great things about this property. It was centrally located, quiet, clean and extremely well maintained. The owner of the property stopped by on a couple of occasions to clean the pool and to make sure everything was to our liking. The pool and Tiki Bar were an extra bonus!
Great Location, very nice house, accommodates chil
Great location. The property is only a few minutes walk to the public beach, we could walk over several times a day, especially in the evening to see the sunset. It is also possible to walk to a few restaurants under 0.5 mile from the house which we did. The house was great for children. The pool was warm and we used it often even though the weather was in the 60's. Plenty of pool toys and beach toys available for the kids. There was also one low king bed which was great for my 3 and 5 yr old to share. Plenty of space, kitchen had all of the dishes, cookware that was needed during our stay. It was nice to be able to walk straight out onto the balcony from the kitchen and watch the kids in the pool from above. The key code on the front door was great which eliminated the need for a key. Sufficient parking for 3 vehicles for all the members of our family to stay comfortably. Close proximity to Sanibel and other Fort Myers attractions for day trips.
Thanks so much for your review. The owner is going to be putting a door on the ensuite bathroom this March. We truly appreciate your comments and suggestion so we can make future guests stay better. We hope to have you back again!
