Duncan's Tropical Beach Bungalow is one of a kind in Southwest Florida. Perfect for a honeymoon, anniversary, or, romantic getaway. Complete privacy...Clothing Optional...The 'Bungalow' has the feel of the islands with solid yellow pine and Mexican tile floors, high end West Indies style furnishings, Florida plantation shutters, crown molding in every room, gourmet kitchen...even an outdoor shower adjacent to the master bath for a unique shower under the stars.

French doors open onto a literal 'jungle' of palms (over 170) and bananas, two sandy beaches bordering the pool. Wriggle your feet in the sand, take a dip in the oversize solar heated pool, or, take a nap in the hammock. The vegetation is so dense, you can skinny dip in complete privacy. You would never guess you were surrounded by civilization.

Everyone without exception has loved the Bungalow...close to everything. Please read our quests' reviews...

Should you be a TV or movie fan, the Bungalow offers 50 plus movies for your enjoyment.

Just add freshly popped popcorn.The Bungalow is WI-FI equipped; stay connected while sunbathing in the hammock.

We welcome furry 4 legged creatures and the 'jungle' is completely fenced so they can run free. We simply ask that you behave as responsible pet owners...

Located in the historic McGregor Blvd. district of Fort Myers, Duncan's Tropical Beach Bungalow is conveniently located to our famous beaches, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel/Captiva Islands, about 20-25 minutes; Regional SW Int'l airport is 25 minutes away.

We opened our 'paradise retreat' to guests in 2008. One half of our guests have returned 2 and three times...One couple recently returned for the 4th time...pretty much says it all!

We realize that our prices are substantially below market for similar properties, (if you could find one) ...we also suspect that once you experience our lifestyle, you will be back, or, at least...recommend us to your friends.


your host, duncan

About Allen Duncan

Creating the 'Bungalow' has been a labor of love.My talented friend Hartmann did magic with the interior, 'green thumb' Annie supervised creating the 'Jungle'...over 150 palms, banana, and bamboo, two butterfly gardens, and an all natural irrigation system. Daughter Kathy contributed the two Sand beaches poolside.

Everybody loves the Bungalow....I love my job as innkeeper and yard man...



Why Allen Duncan chose Fort Myers

You need some space to create a private tropical retreat, and it needs to be strategically located...The Bungalow site met all of the important criteria for an awesome vacation experience.

What makes this house unique

The Bungalow is the perfect Romantic getaway...many of our guests are honeymooners and couples celebrating a romantic anniversary .The "Jungle" is totally optional....

Owner's Response: No greater compliment can an innkeeper receive than to have a guest return. Almost 50% of our guests return for another “Bungalow Experience “. Several have given the Bungalow as a wedding or anniversary gift. Isn’t that a great gift? Thank you, duncan

Truly a relaxing oasis with all the amenities needed

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Duncan's, but our 4th visit with one of their bungalows. Kathy is a fantastic host and the response from questions asked is quick & prompt. Duncan's place was just as described and a wonderful getaway. We look forward to our next visit(5th) at one of their bungalows. Thank you Duncan & Kathy as always a fantastic & relaxing trip for the entire family.

AWESOME is what comes to mind in discribing Duncan's Tropical Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. We got to unplug and relax and really enjoy our stay. We liked it so much that the only place we went to was Publix for groceries. We did have a lot of rain this week, but we still got to enjoy our stay, so much so that we can't wait to go back in September and visit Kathy's Tropical Bungalow. But let me tell you, if this will be your first stay ask them questions before you go. We definitely over packed a LOT. They have everything you can think of for your stay. From condiments if you are going to cook, to coolers, towels, sunblock or sun tan oils, just about everything. All you really need to bring is your clothes and toothbrush and paste. They have everything else ready for you. We would like to thank Duncan and Kathy for letting us stay at their place, and we are so looking forward to returning in September. As a vacation winds down we are usually ready to come back home, this was not the case this trip. If it wasn't for having to return to work we would have loved to stay some more. Awesome guys, my hat is off to you both.

My family (myself, wife, 17 year old daughter, 12 year old son, & furkid) stayed at the Tropical Beach Bungalow the week of April 1 - April 8. Don't get me wrong, the inside of the house is very nice...but it is the back yard that makes this Tropical Bungalow a Tropical Paradise. It has a spacious heated pool, sandy beach type areas to sit in the sun (or under large umbrella), gazebo area to take a break from the sun, and a nice patio area to eat any meal at. And, to make this back yard even more inviting, it is completely enclosed with wonderful palm trees and other Florida vegetation. It is simply an awesome back yard.

Duncan was also an extremely conscientious & accommodating as a host while we were there.

The previous 4 years we had stayed in Sarasota...this was our first time staying in Fort Myers, and getting to explore another area of Florida.

We had a wonderful time while we were there...and didn't really want to leave. We were just not sure if the next guest would mind us hanging out during their week... ;-)

Tropics without the need to board a plane

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over Memorial Day Week/weekend. This was our second time here. So needless to say, we absolutely love it. I generally don't do many repeat stays, even though I frequently do enjoy most of the places I find through VRBO. But Duncan's stands out, by far, as one of the nicest places. I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE his place. Makes me feel like I'm in St. Lucia, minus the expensive flights. It's like being at your own private beach. Well-equipped with everything you need. Just pack your clothes and pop over to Publix for your groceries. Pop in the tunes and start the blender, perfect place to spend vacation.
