About Randy Duffy

I own and manage this home. I want you to feel at home when renting my place.

Randy Duffy purchased this house in 2009

Why Randy Duffy chose Ft Myers Beach

In my opinion, Fort Myers Beach is second to none. After much serching I realized that Fort Myers Beach has it all. 'Location, Location, Location!'

What makes this house unique

The north end of the island is quiet and offers easy access to the mainland and Fort Myers by car. It is a two minute walk to the beach and a ten minute walk to Times Square and many fine and fun restaurants. It is also close to the fishing pier. The decks offer a beautiful view of the Gulf and the new Estero Blvd. provides for a beautiful bike ride or casual stroll. You definitely feel like 'FLORIDA.'

Everything you expect.....and more!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay. The house is beautiful, and it has a huge deck with a variety of areas to relax. There are tons of windows, providing a light, airy feeling.

We have been vacationing at Ft. Myers Beach for the past 7 years. During that time we have stayed in 6 different places, and we have been disappointed every time. Before we arrived this year my husband said, “I hope this place is everything we expect it to be.” It was even more! What you see is definitely what you get! A wonderful perk was Randy, our landlord. He was helpful in every suggestions on places to eat and visit. He even joined us for cocktails on the deck a few times. It was a delightful stay. Just don’t try to book it when we want to stay!

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Randy's place is fabulous. Great location with everything you require for a perfect holiday.

All mod cons, comfortable,clean and full of everything you need.

The deck areas are spacious and fully equipped for outdoor living with plenty of seating and of course a great bar area, a delight to sit out in the evenings and enjoy the sunset.

The beach is just across the road and randy has all the stuff you need, including his new beach cart to get it all there. He has bikes and kayak's for you to use and will offer advice for nights out and places to visit.

Randy is the perfect host and very helpful and accommodating

All in all a perfect house and we can't wait to go back.

Fantastic...Even better than Advertised

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is as good as advertised. There was nothing lacking. Thanks to Randy for being around and answering our questions from what restaurants to eat at, travel directions to local places of interest, and how to work appliances. This house comes with all the amnesties of home. We had a very relaxing week due in part to the house along with its great location. We will definitely be back next year.There is no need to looking elsewhere. This is a 5-star rental.

Randy's house is not the typical generic uninspired rental property. The decor and personal touches make this house feel like home from the first moments.

Then there's Randy. We spent many enjoyable hours in his company. His wit and humor kept us happily entertained for two weeks. Yet he respected our privacy and solitude.

We have nothing but good memories of our time at 551 Estero Blvd. It is a beautiful beach home within walking distance to many attractions and restaurants.

Thanks Randy for a fun stay at a great place.

Hope to see you soon

It's a Shore Thing

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely amazing! From the beautiful landscaping and decks to the beautiful well kept inside. Randy was such a wonderful host and goes over a beyond to make sure everything is provided for his guests. He even takes great wedding pictures!! :) The location of the house is perfect for beach access and walking distance to Time Square. We had an amazing week there and can't wait for the opportunity to go back. We have definitely found a new vacation place. Thanks again Randy for everything! Jill and Dan

"Home Away From Home"

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly one of a kind! The attention to décor and upkeep is evident throughout the inside and outside of the home. Randy is the best host and we cannot thank him enough for the great time in Florida. The boys appreciated the opportunity to use the Kayak’s and the bike rides in the evening were very enjoyable.

Everything you need is provided in this home. It is truly a “home away from home.” It is clean and well-kept. The landscaping is beautiful and when you sit on the deck you will hear all those walking by commenting on its beauty and the home itself.

Don’t’ miss out on the opportunity to stay in this beautiful home by looking at the pictures and thinking the price is too high for you to even consider. This property is well priced for the location and type of home and makes for a wonderful FL get-away!

Thank you again Randy! You are the best!

This beach home also includes Comcast with preferred package, sports, music channels and WiFi. This property is maintained as a home used by the owner. This is not your typical 'income rental property.' If you want to experience the true feeling of actually 'living' the Florida life, this home is for you!
