About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 14 using queen sleep sofas in game room

This luxury home is located mid island of the Ft. Myers Beach island. It is directly on the Bay for great boating with a private pool & spa between the house and bay. Home equipped with HDTV and hi-speed WiFi internet . If you desire the great beaches of the island, it is only a short 300 yard walk to the opposite side of the island with seven miles of pristine sugar sand. Rentals of boats, jet skis, parasailing charters, fishing charters, bicycles, motor scooters, electric cars, etc..... are only a short walk from the house. Fantastic restaurants anywhere on the island - seafood, steaks, Italian, fast food restaurants (even a McDonald's), grocery stores, convenience stores and gas stations. Also at the marina are daily all day or half day fishing excursions as well as a high speed ferry to Key West. In addition, there are nightly off-shore gambling/dining cruises on the big 'M.' Located nearby off-island are more than twenty golf courses, shopping outlet centers.


For a day of adventure you can visit the next island (Sanibel) with fantastic shelling, and the Ding Darling Nature Preserve for close glimpses of alligators and all the natural wildlife of the area. Better yet, is an island kayak tour to view the manatees and dolphins in their own habitat.

Handicap accessible (1st floor only)

Location

View Guide powered by:
20 Miles
Nearest Airport
Regional Southwest Airport - RSW, Ft Myers

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 cruising 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 great golf courses within 15 to 30 minute drives from the house. On the southern part of the island there is a 4 screen movie theater that also serves meals and beer/wine during shows. An offshore excursion is the high speed ferry that loads at Ft Myers Beach marina and travels in approximately 2 1/2 hours to 3 to Key West. 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. For Casino gambling, the Seminole Casino is located just about 1 hour from the house in Imokalee.

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.

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 and perhaps even take in the local dinner/ theatrical performance night club.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Our family has been visiting Ft Myers Beach since the late 50's. We still travel to other parts around the world, but Ft Myers Beach is still our favorite place to relax and enjoy good restaurants, great beach areas, and good fishing if you are into that. We have been in the rental business for homes and apartments for over thirty years, and this is one of our premier homes that offers so much. We have owned and rented homes in Connecticut, Cape Cod Mass, and Florida with over 300 rentals at one point. We now only focus on the approximately 12 homes we own and manage along with assitance of full time managers on our Florida homes. We also run children's summer camps in Connecticut, so we are focused on their operations during the July/August season. This does not mean you will not thoroughly enjoy our home during the summer as our staff that keep everything in A-1 shape are a great team ! We have other homes on Ft Myers Beach, but this is by far the largest and best equipped to handle a large family group, reunion get together, or just a large family that all want to be together and not in 4 or 5 motel/ hotel rooms ( we have been there as well). What makes this such a unique home are the amenities and the space. The younger generation can focus on one room ( game room with pool table / TV/ and game tables) while the older adults might meet together in the upstairs living room and sometimes not hear a sound ( or monitor what is going on with the house intercom). Trust us, you will not be heard yelling from one end of the home to the other - it is too large and insulated to have sound travel that far. But it does allow you to enjoy the home/ your time on vacation/ and if it is too quiet, there is always fishing on the pier or a great swim in the pool.
