Property type house

About the property

2 bedrooms plus bonus room, 2 full baths. Sleeps 4.

This inviting stilt house is new to the rental market. It was used exclusively by the owner and his guests. It is located on the quiet mid-island side of the island and is just 5 houses away from the pristine beach. The house is very clean and airy and has everything necessary to make your stay memorable. The kitchen has new 42 inch cabinets, granite countertops, tray ceiling and hardwood maple floors. Both bedrooms are carpeted and the home is nicely furnished. The bonus room has a pullout coach and can serve as a reading room or as a sleeping room for guests. There is a fully screened lanai with a teak table and chairs that provides a great place for breakfast or for entertaining. This home is very comfortable and makes for a great snowbird winter retreat. Its proximity to the beach and to the beach access makes it very desirable.

Definitely coming back. We loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the downstairs unit of the house and had everything we needed. Neighborhood was extremely quiet and it was a 3 minute walk to a gorgeous beach. The owner made sure we had everything. We had Wifi, nice TV, 2 outdoor dining tables, backyard, kitchen, bath, outdoor shower if we wanted. There is a Publix close enough to walk to and plenty of restaurants nearby but we mostly cooked at the house since it was convenient. Bed was comfy and there is a futon for extra bed. Felt like home to me. Perfect location. Locals gather at the beach at nite to watch the sunset. We took walks at night around the neighborhood. This was during a busy noisy spring break and we hardly knew it was going on. I can't wait to come back and stay longer!!!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Dominic's place for 2 weeks and found it just great! The location of the rental was perfect for us. It is off the quiet middle section of the beach (the busy parts are either ends of the beach) and is in a safe quiet residential area. Dominic himself gaves us lots of useful tips about where to dine and rent a car. His local knowledge was great and saved us quite some money too! The Condo was spotless and had plenty of space to accoamdate all our needs. It was like a home from home...even including all the stuff you need for the beach like chairs & umbrellas etc. We had a wonderful holiday and we think that Dominic's personal touch made it that more enjoyable. Thank you Dominic!

Fort Myers Beach is also known as Estero Island and is located near the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. It is 7 miles long with pristine beaches and stunning sunsets. There is a full array of world class restaurants located up and down the beach as well as several quaint eateries to satisfy the most discerning of palates. There is deep sea fishing as well as private charters and sight seeing expeditions. There are public tennis courts, a cafe cinema, a new public supermarket, a large public pool with waterslide and a children’s play pool. There is also the Time Square area with its local shops and eating and drinking establishments. Fort Myers beach has something to offer for everyone who cares to visit whether their goal is to frolic on the beach or to take part in eco-tourism activities.
