About the Property

4 bedrooms, 4 full baths plus outside pool shower, sleeps 8 persons

Private heated pool home directly on the beach and Gulf waters. Watch the dolphins from the deck or the kids in the great 30' beachfront swimming pool. Fantastic white powder sand beach. Home has Wifi internet . May 2016, a brand new kitchen with all new cabinets & appliances (including a convection oven, 26 cu ft refrigerator/ice maker, dishwasher, microwave) were installed for the cooks that want a comfortable food prep area. Also newly added were new sofas in the living room and end tables with USB plug in ports for all you phone charging individuals that are always hunting for plug in areas. There are also fishing, boat rentals, restaurants and tennis all close by. Any closer to the Gulf you would be living on a houseboat.
Home is walking distance to several restaurants as well as the local movie theater.
It doesn't get any better than this for beachfront relaxation - no street noise as this home is on a dead end street - but still beachfront.
Nothing is more relaxing than watching the dolphins frolic right from the deck in the morning or viewing that slowly setting western sunset touch the edge of the Gulf's horizon in the evening.....right from the deck off the living room.

this home is one of the few beachfront homes with a beachfront pool directly on the beach. it is somewhat secluded with the seagrass that must be allowed to grow by law. There is a 30ft wide patch of clean sand next to the pool & viewable from the deck for the kids to play in close to the house. 100feet out from the house, the white powdery Ft Myers Beach sand that FMB it is so famous for can be found for 3 1/2 miles in either direction. This is a fantastic jogging or walking beach, super for sea shell collectors ( one must be mindful of the limits for shells and no live ones to be collected), and for those into water sports there are wave runners/ sailboats/ and parasailing for use and hire all along the beach area. If you are a biker, there are also bike rentals that can be rented by the day or week. If the Gulf attracts you for the fishing, there is good fishing right from the beach, or there are numbers of boats for hire at any of the five marinas on the island. Group party boats are also an option and leave daily from the marinas both full day and half day fishing.

this home is also close to walk two to four blocks to stores, restaurants, and even the local movie theater. There is also a 75 cent trolley that runs north and south on the island to take you to other shopping areas ( Publix supermarket), or other strip malls on the north and south ends of the island. If you continue on the trolley off the island, you can be connected with the city transit lines of Ft Myers proper.

We have specific information on our home website (which we send to you after initial inquiry) as to names and contact numbers for most of the places of interest on the island.

For day entertainment, there are all sorts of rentals around the island and directly on the beach for bikes, baby beach strollers, wave runners, parasailing, and kayak tours around the island. If you are in to motorbikes or motorcycles, there are rentals for those as well as small electric fiberglass electric cars.

FMB also has two grocery stores on island - Topps and the larger of the two ....Publix Market about mid island.

We have dozens of really good restaurants all on the island, and many more off island. Fishing is a prime industry from the island with one the largest shrimping pier areas in the southwest corner of Florida. You can buy right at the pier for really fresh and delicious shrimp and fish selections. With five marinas on the island, there are many captains to choose from for daily charters or group charter boat excursions for fishing. You might also be interested in renting a boat to captain yourself from a boston whaler style boat to an inboard with seating up to 12. Perhaps even a pontoon party boat to just cruise around the back bay area to watch local wildlife including manatees and dolphins, or just crusing from island to island along the coast. On the island and within a ten minute drive to other islands there are numerous wildlife protected areas to view the birds, gators, manatees, and the fantastic shell life that is always abundant on these south west islands of Florida. Make sure to check out the Ding Darling reservation on Sanibel, Shell Mound historic area, and Lovers Key state park for excellent shelling and marine life.

There are dozens of golf courses both public and private within 15 to 20 minutes of Estero Island (Ft Myers Beach). On the southern part of the island there is a 4 screen movie theater that also serves meals and beer/wine during shows. There is An offshore excursion with high speed ferry that loads at Ft Myers Beach marina and travels in approximately 2 1/2 hours to 3 to Key West daily. Much easier than driving, and you can return the same day or stay over and return the next evening.

Going off the island there is just about anything you can imagine in the localized Ft Myers Area and greater region. There are numerous outlet centers within 20 to 30 minute drives. The malls located in Ft Myers proper are numerous and cover just about any budget and interest area. During the mid winter time, there is sport action with two winter baseball teams residing in Ft Myers - the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox ( two separate stadiums). And yes, there is still dog racing at the Bonita Springs Track just 20 minutes away. There is also the Seminole Casino about one hour away in Immokalee. Tampa is within 2 1/2 hours away for the Bush Gardens entertainment area, and then Orlando about the same time north of Ft Myers for Disney, Universal Studios, Sea World, and many more. There are also several evening theater areas available, the largest being the Barbara Mann theater (check local listings or the Ft Myers Press for each weeks events). You can also rent kayaks, bicycles, wave runners, and enjoy a parasail ride all from vendors along the beach or at either end of the island.

If you are heading off to or coming from a cruise, Ft Myers Beach is again only a 2 1/2 hour drive from the Ft Lauderdale and Miami shipping ports for the cruise ships.

South of Ft Myers Beach is one of the nicest zoos on the East Coast - The Naples Zoo. But please wander around the Naples area as this is also a fabulous home viewing area as well as superb shopping districts ( you have to visit "tin city" )and perhaps even take in the local dinner/ theatrical performance night club.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: We have been coming to Ft Myers Beach since the late 50's. A lot has changed since then. This home was considered the end of the island of inhabitable homes back then, and now it is about mid island. This home was completely renovated with new kitchen and bathrooms along with tile floors back in 2002. In addition, we added an inground pool which is what most families wanted for the little ones, especially during the winter months - and yes it is heated. The best thing about this home that we liked was that it was on a dead end street, away from any kind of traffic and noise, yet the street parallels the beach with beachfront properties. Our family has been in the home and apartment rental business for over thiry years renting homes and apartments in Florida, Cape Cod Mass., and Connecticut. Today, we are down to about one dozen homes that we manage both in Florida and Connecticut. We do have a full time beach manager that looks after our homes on Ft Myers beach, and you will meet her when you check into one of our homes. We travel frequently throughout the year, so if we plan to use our home, it is usually blocked out on our calendar as 'booked', so that openings shown on the calendar are truly available.
