About: We love living here!! Directly on San Carlos Bay, we have endless water to look upon and gorgeous sunsets to revel in. This house allows you to completely relax with scenic views of the bay, Ft. Myers Beach, and Sanibel Island. There's nothing better than waking up to the sound of sea breeze brushing through the palm trees. Our backyard is full of manatees, dolphins, sea turtles and much more - all of which we enjoy watching. We grew up in St. Louis and still visit often, but this is our dream home. We would love for you to stay here and feel the same way - we feel like we're on vacation all the time!

Why Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
As avid boaters, we are on the water as much as possible. There was really no other choice - we wanted to live where our happiness is highest. San Carlos Bay is beautiful - full of wonderful wildlife, spectacular fishing, and unrivaled sunsets. A 5 minute boat ride will take you right into the Gulf of Mexico, where you can cruise up to Captiva or down to Naples. Mangrove forests and calm backwater is a 10 minute boat ride away. Bring your own kayaks, canoes, or paddleboards and launch right in your backyard! Whether you're looking to relax or take advantage of Florida's playground, this house is perfect for you!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tons of windows allow Florida's sunshine to peek in and fill you up with joy. Three different elevated lanais allow you to relax outside. The NEW pool enables you to soak up some rays while the kids cool off and release some energy. After a long run on the beach or a good day of fishing, let your muscles relax while enjoying the sunset from the hot tub. Save money and indulged in your own home cooking as you can grill your fresh catch of the day or make some sinful burgers! Bring your own kayaks/canoes/paddleboards and launch directly from the floating dock!
