About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Don't let your perfect vacation spot get away !! . This is prime Ft. Myers location with gulf access and so much more! Be sure and check out our photos, we just redecorated both of the bathrooms to ensure our guest every comfort they may need. Imagine waking up and enjoying your morning listening to the sound of the fountains in the small lake that our lanai looks over. Or maybe you would prefer to go for a walk or a bike ride (we have 4 bikes for your use) to start your day. You will find the neighborhood private, but very convenient to all Fort Myers has to offer.

You are 10 minutes to Fort Myers Airport. There are numerous golf courses close by. If you are into baseball, the Min. Twins and Boston Red Sox's Spring training stadiums are within 5 to 15 minutes from our home.

Florida's finest shopping centers such as Coconut Point, Bass Pro Shop, Miromar Outlet Center, Gulf Coast Center, and many other shopping areas are within minutes from our home. You have your choice of restaurants and local fish markets, as well as antique shops to enjoy.

Spend the day at the beach, Fort Myers Beach will take you about 15 minutes to get to, or you may want to drive 20 minutes and experience my favorite..Sanibel/Captiva Island where the shelling, dining, fishing, biking, and shopping are rated among the best.

If water is what you like Estero Bay has much to offer. Take the canoe and spend the day exploring the canal, or bring your own boat and use the community boat ramp that is steps away from our front door. You would be in the Gulf of Mexico in about 20 minutes enjoying the beaches or fishing.

Maybe you would enjoy taking a swim in the pool which is located two doors down from our home. If you enjoy bike riding we have 4 bikes that you can use to ride around the neighborhood or visit the Goodwill store which is apx. 1 mile and nice side walks to ensure bike a safe trip.

Finish your evening by grilling on our extra large charcoal grill and enjoying all of the culinary furnishings in our kitchen. We love to go to the fish market and pick fresh seafood, and if you are down on the weekend don't forget to visit the FleaMasters Flea Market on MLK Blvd. where all of the farmers sell their produce. There is even a Key West Express boat that offers a very affordable trip to the keys without the driving.

About Kathy Hopkins

Being from Tennessee we have always enjoyed the mountains and activities there; but we also love the Gulf side of Florida and all it has to offer. We enjoy fishing, boating, shelling, bargain hunting, shopping, cooking, and spending time with friends and family. We have three children, and two grand children.

Kathy Hopkins purchased this house in 2009

Why Kathy Hopkins chose Florida South West

Years ago we fell in love with Sanibel Island, and have looked for a vacation home that we could enjoy and afford. We first found the street off of 41 where Island Park Woods is located. What we liked was that the street was not a through street, it was private yet easy to get to and very close to everything. We are so glad we purchased this home it is exactly what we wanted. We love our neighbors and the amenities the neighborhood offers.

What makes this house unique

Having a community pool, just 2 doors down from us, the boat ramp and fishing area is right across the street from us. We have an area to store our boat. When you enter the neighborhood it is only two streets and there is only one entrance. The fountains and little lakes are beautiful. Watching the manatees in the canal, or going for a morning walk (if you leave the subdivision there are sidewalks to bike or walk for a mile each way. We enjoy bargain hunting and there are about 17 thrift/consignment stores within 30 minutes of us. There are also a couple of flea markets and farmers markets where we love buying the fresh produce.

Great Fort Myers Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and my husband and myself spent a month on this property this past February 2013.

It is way more than advertised....we loved it. Very clean and the kitchen was very well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. The location is the best. You are just 1 mile from U.S. 41, the major road thru Fort Myers, and yet when you drive back into the sub division you feel like it is very quiet and safe.

We could be to several beaches within 20 to 30 minutes. Shopping is close by for groceries, etc. The owner was very helpful and checked with us soon after we arrived.

The screened in lanai in the back was one of our favorite rooms in the house...we had coffee there nearly every morning as we listened to the fountains in the ponds...we were lucky enough to have an otter frolic around for most of one day in the water.

Skip One Restaurant is very close and excellent seafood.

I want to thank you and David for opening your beautiful home to us. It's very comfortable, nicely decorated and fully stock kitchen and baths. We tried our hand at the canoe and bike riding. The canoe adventure was comical. We had a great time and really enjoyed the accommodations!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting off of VRBO and we were very pleased with the results. The house was beautiful and spacious. It was very clean and everything was provided. The pool was right down the road and was very well taken care of. We spent a lot of time there. The back screened in porch provided a cool breeze in the evening where my family and I enjoyed dinners. This is a perfect house for families. We had a lot of room and it was very close to the main roads, stores etc. It was also a great community to walk around during the day and evening. I highly reccomend this house and look forward to renting with my family again.
