Do nothing.... stay at 'Little Palm' that is our motto!

'Little Palm' as we like to call it is your home away from home. It is a true beach front cottage with all of today's amenities (paddle boards, bicycles, beach toys)! 30 steps and you are ready to Do Nothing. As you can see from the photos it has been completely renovated and professionally decorated.

'Little Palm' is located in the heart of Ft. Myers Beach FL right on Estero Blvd 3 miles from Town Square & it is a true beach front property. Mornings at Little Palm may be enjoyed by watching the sunrise as you walk down the beach or just relaxing on the outside patio reading your local paper while having your morning coffee!

Due to its beachfront amenities, you may enjoy the rest of the day taking in the Hot Florida Sun right in front of your property or probably taking advantage of the parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking from Mid-Island Sports next door!

We have enjoyed Little Palm and have had many of wonderful memories here and we'd like to share these memories with you! Come Stay at 'Little Palm' and Do Nothing!

About Ileana and Chaz

We are thrilled to be on Ft. Myers Beach! It was a dream of ours to own a piece of this paradise ever since having first rented on the surf much like yourself, years ago. My wife and I are local Floridians, living in South Florida with our daughter.

Ileana and Chaz purchased this house in 2016

Why Ileana and Chaz chose Fort Myers Beach

"Little Palm" is a dream come true for us. It is a model, homesteader cottage, the likes of which were originally built on Estero Island. Soon it will qualify for the State Registry of Historic Places.

What makes this house unique

Long walks on the beach, shelling, sunbathing, reading, catching up on movies, relaxing, doing nothing....

Being mid-island is perfect because you are close enough to the busy parts of Ft. Myers Beach (Times Square, the Pier, etc.) while affording you access to quiet, pristine beach time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is stunning. We have rented many homes

and never had one so fully stocked and decorated so beachy beautiful. I'll never want to leave! Thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of paradise.

Terrific!

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable vacation. Home was fully equipped. It rained most of our vacation, but being right on the beach made it great. We sat on the porch and watched the rain while watching the waves crash to shore. We went out between raindrops- no driving required! Kids played with sand toys on private beach in backyard while we got some sun on the lounge chairs. We cooked all our meals in the kitchen ( Publix right up the road). From the living room watching tv you look right out to beach. Lovely place. Exceeds Pink Shell where we usually stay! Very private and enjoyable. Kids already asking to go back next year!! Thanks again!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year that we have rented this home for a month. Perfect location, lovely home, beautiful view! This well appointed home is located on a terrific section of the beach that is never crowded. The owners were wonderful - very quick and efficient response to a couple of small issues. We hope to spend a month here again next year!

Fabulous relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our "little palm" holiday home. It was quaint and homely, and the location was perfect, in the middle of Fort Myers Beach. Plenty of everything required for a beach stay, buckets, spades and deck chairs all provided, along with a hammock to take in the view. Be careful when you approach as it's easy to miss the entrance!

Beautiful beach front home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property right on the beach! The home appears to have been recently updated. We arrived to a very clean, adorably decorated home with an outstanding view and direct access to the beach. The home was equipped with everything we needed to make our stay feel like we were at our own home. It appeared that the owners have given a lot of thought to what a visiter might need to be comfortable while staying. Lots of towels, beach towels, beach chairs, cart to haul things to the beach, and plenty of seating both inside and out! The hammock was used daily and a great place to relax out of the sun. The home is located further down the beach from town (about 2 miles) which, for us, was perfect. The trolly stops right across the street for a ride into town. Unfortunately, Estero Blvd was under construction during our week which caused major traffic delays into town. Publix is only a half mile away for groceries and being that the home has an outdoor grill and a fully equipped kitchen we didn't feel the need to go into town for dinner. We would definitely stay here again, however because it is priced a bit higher than some of the other properties on the island, we will need to look elsewhere to find something more affordable.

Owner's Response: Thank you to Denny M. for writing that the place was well stocked & that we were quick to respond to an issue with Housekeeping. Fact is, the lady who worked with us decided that she wouldn't show up that day--with no warning. We scrambled to find a cleaning service, to have everything ready for you. They didn't get to everything on time, leaving some sheets on the floor but never notified us and we assumed the house was in great shape for your arrival. We are terribly sorry for that. I wish you knew how much it hurts us not to earn our usual, 5-Star Rating due to something out of our control. We understand that comes with the territory when relying on other people, or even with a "reliable" cleaning service. Thank you for wanting to come back and stay with us. We'd love to have you!! Chaz & Ileana
