Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We first vacationed in Florida in 2004 and immediately knew we found a dream location. We quickly became “snow birds” and spent each winter in Florida. After only two years and wanting more of our newly found paradise, we decided to become year round residents. Most of our lives had been spent in Pennsylvania and most of our vacations were spent on the beaches of New Jersey or sailing in the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Now, here in Fort Myers, we can enjoy all the pleasures of the outdoors all year. Every day is a great day to be on the beach, on the water or on a golf course. Once here, you will want to come back again and again. Frank & Carol, Fort Myers, FL
Why the Owner Chose Heritage Palms, Fort Myers, FL, USA:
We chose Fort Myers because it offers the best of Florida; the beaches and waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the climate of a tropical paradise, and all the conveniences you expect to find in a large city. It has live theatre, sport complexes, numerous golf courses, medical centers, and all the shops and stores you could ever want. Yet our vacation home, while very close to the city life, is in a resort setting that features a tranquil lake and nature preserve. We have the quiet or the bustle – whichever suits our mood.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Portofino is a centrally located gated community set among 58 acres of nature preserve and Old Italian architecture. Our clubhouse with heated swimming pool and fitness room is only a few steps from our condo door. We are only 1 mile from the local shopping center which offers all of life’s necessities plus half a dozen restaurants. One of our favorite hiking places is the well known Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve – 1 mile away. We mostly hike on our own but do have the choice of taking a guided tour. From its several miles of elevated boardwalk we often see alligators and many species of birds. Other animals we see less often include deer, fox, bobcats and otters. We have never come across a bear which we are told do occasionally pass through the preserve. Baseball is a very popular local sport. We watch the Boston Red Sox Spring Training at JetBlue Park - only 10 minutes away. We watch the Minnesota Twins Spring Training at Hammond Stadium - only 4 minutes away. When spring training is over, Hammond Stadium becomes home field for the Fort Myers Miracle, our minor league team. We will often have a foot-long hotdog and beer while watching our team play. The brief games and contests played between innings in the minor leagues are a bonus – they are almost as entertaining as the regular game. Fort Myers Beach is our favorite place in the sand – 12 miles away. There are palm trees, sand dunes, and all types of watercraft for the adventurous. We often see pelicans swooping down into the water as they fish for their next meal. It also has picnic facilities, grills, restrooms, fishing pier, and beach front shops, snack bars and restaurants. Sometimes we enjoy an ice cream cone as we walk the beach.
