Property description

Experience the beauty and tranquility of Fort Myers Beach from a furnished private house on the canal. Two bedroom, one with a new posturepedic king-size bed and one with twin beds. Fully equipped kitchen; utility room with washer and dryer and solar heated screened in pool. Furnished in casual island style just across the street from seven miles of beautiful sandy beaches.

Convenient to restaurants, shops, movie theater and golf. Shell Gas station, Colonial Bank, Island Hair Gallery, 7-11 within a block. Located at the southern end of the island, this house is the perfect retreat for couples and families. Close enough to water sports, fishing and shopping. Everything is within reach yet this home is in a quiet area with residents, Royal Palm Trees and warm ocean breezes. At the end of the street is Charley's Boat House Grill which has been a local favorite for over 25 years. Also we are close to the Outrigger.

Forget your watch at home, bask in the sun, walk the beach, and enjoy the tropical flowers on Fort Myers Beach where tomorrow will be just as tough!


Karen,

Just a quick note to say we had a great time. The cottage is very nice, you have it furnished beautifully, it's well maintained and clean. I will tell my friends about it and I'll come back again.
The weather was great so we enjoyed the pool & beach.


Thanks again

Deb

Other Amenities

  • Fort Myers Beach: Welcome to the beautiful barrier islands of Fort Myers Beach-Estero Island and San Carlos Island – where the sun shines nearly every day and the average temperature is 74 degrees. Beaches are probably the No.1 attraction, with the turquoise blue to bright green waters of the Gulf of Mexico lapping at the silky, white sands and seashells – for the collector in everyone. Called the “world’s safest beach”, it’s an ideal site for family vacations, for there are no steep drop-offs, riptides or undertows. Everywhere you go, wildlife is abundant. Shore birds such as egrets,pelicans,spoonbills,seagulls and herons are found near every body of water, from the gulf to the back bay. Sometimes, even the bald eagle can be spotted soaring over our islands. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes for residents and visitors alike – there are even restaurants you can get to by boat for lunch on (or near) the high seas. Yes, the comforts of civilization are evident as well. The m...moreless

Karen and Don,

Thank you so much for renting the beach house. We loved our stay in FMB and look forward to a return visit in December. While we were in Florida we looked at buying a home in Fort Myers and to become full time residents

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We bought this house for retirement as it is small, cute, and cozy. It is about 900 sq. ft. and has everything we need including a dock and the canal so we have easy access to fishing. We are now at retirement age and still feel the same way after many visits to the island. Our cottage is all on the ground level, we have 7-11 at the end of the street, our own beach access and plenty of privacy in our lanai if we just want to lounge by the pool.

Why the Owner Chose South Island, Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
I think the weather was the deciding factor. We are from the Midwest and here in Minnesota, summer is too short. The flowers and the palm trees are so therapeutic that we couldn't resist. We also like the mid-island location as we can access the South end bridge or the North end bridge so it is very convenient.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have all the comforts of home. We like to think that we have covered all the details and we know our guests appreciate the amenities that we have to make their vacation special. Karen, I stayed at your Beach Bungalow at beautiful Ft. Myers Beach the first week of March. I'm an amateur photographer and took about 400 photos while I was there, one of which I submitted to the Star Tribune website for their gallery of vacation photos. Well, they printed it in the Travel Section of yesterday's paper (Sunday May 17th). It made me very happy to be able to share my vacation memories with the paper's readers. Here's a copy for your enjoyment. Feel free to use it anyway you wish to market your wonderful beach house.
