About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This canal home has been recently updated with a new kitchen featuring granite countertops and an island dining area.
The open floor plan overlooks a heated pool, a dock and the canal that accesses into The Gulf of Mexico.

All three bedrooms have individual in suite baths. The master suite has a separate entry to the deck that overlooks the pool and the canal.

The Great Room has a high definition TV with Comcast On-Demand and an entertainment system with surround sound. Wireless internet is available in the entire house (and pool area!)

The phone is on a direct line that allows for free long distance service anywhere in the continental United States.

Other Activities: Fort Myers Beach is actually Estero Island, a seven mile island that is not attached to Fort Myers City. Powder white sand beaches span the Gulf of Mexico shore. There is a free public boat ramp just south of the island on Lovers Key. Restaurants and shops dot both sides of Estero Boulevard. There are 2 large supermarkets, a Publix and a Topps on the island. Just northwest of Estero Island are Sanibel and Captiva Islands. A half hour drive south takes you to Naples for elegant dining and lavish shopping. The largest mall in the US and several factory outlets are within a half hour drive.As a friend recently told me,'Why go anywhere else? Estero Island has it all: dining, boating, beach walks and shopping!' See our virtual tour for a 360 degree tour of the home and the beach!

'Peace of Mind' Addendum in Case of Oil Spill: Although we do not expect the oil spill to affect our beaches, we are offering a full refnd of all rents and deposits if our beaches are closed by a governmental agency or governing authority. It is the tenant's sole responsibility to ascertain whether any Covered Beach Closing has occurred and to provide this information in writing to the rental broker no later than 5 days after the Covered Beach Closing.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I am a retired school teacher from norteastern Ohio. My family and I have owned vacation property in Bonita Springs and Fort Myers Beach for over 28 years. My husband and I first shared a condo in Bonita Springs with family but always drove to the beach. We enjoyed the beautiful white powder sands on Fort Myers Beach so much that we decided to build our dream retirement home on the beach! We first only rented the property when we couldn't use it, but now rent it all year as we have relocated in a home on the Bay. We hope that everyone falls as much in love with our location as we have.

Why the Owner Chose South Island, Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
We have enjoyed boating and walking the beaches of Lake Erie, but only in the Summer months. You can enjoy these pleasures on Fort Myers Beach all year long!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is located on a canal, 5 houses down from Estero Boulevard. The Gulf beaches are on the other side of Estero Boulevard. The canal accesses into Estero Bay and into the Gulf of Mexico. You can dock a boat on our dock and enjoy the boating and fishing pleasures right from our home. There is a public boat ramp and parking lot just south on Lover's Key where you may just your boat in the water for no fee.
