About Jerry Kemp

Bobbi and I have owned a 1940 beach cottage on Sterling Ave (one house back from the beach) since 2003 and have retired here in 2009. Our Island has everything you could want, beautiful sugar soft sand beaches, fabulous sunsets, great restaurants, fun bars, and unique shops. It is a cool, safe, funky Island. As we like to say, 'This is Paradise'

Why Jerry Kemp chose Fort Myers Beach

Steps from the sugar white sand of Fort Myers Beach. Quiet location with an easy walk to an Island full of activity. Restaurants, bars, grocery store, theater just 1/2 to 1 mile from your beach house.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic sunsets, un-crowded beaches, jet ski rental 300 yards away. Our beach is walker-friendly and easy to bike ride. Dolphins are just steps away from your door.

Can't get much better than this!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful! Plenty of room for a large family and a very reasonable price compared to cramming everyone in two small hotel rooms. Comfortable with lots of things included (games for kids, pool table, and all sorts of things for the beach). The location can't be much better - just walk across the street to the beach. And this particular section of beach has no public parking lot and no large hotels nearby, so it's not very crowded. The water is shallow for a long way out, so it's perfect for children. Soft sand and lots of shells. The jet-ski rental is just another minute walk down the beach. Publix (grocery) nearby. Generally a quiet area of town. Shaded front porch with great ocean breeze to spend relaxing out of the sun on hot afternoons. Our whole family enjoyed it so much. We would definitely rent this home again.

amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Working the rental out with Jerry was awesome. Since this is low season he let us check in early and leave late. He met us at the home when we arrived and explained everything we needed to know including some excellent restaurants that were on point. The home was very clean and spacious. The rooms, big kitchen and bathrooms were very clean. Having the pool table in the living room was great. There are plenty of chairs around the wrap around porch to enjoy the sunset. There are 3 bicycles to use along with beach chairs, umbrellas and floats for the beach located half a block away. This was an excellent vacation.

fun, family friendly, close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent 3 nights at this property and it was just what we were looking for! Easy access to the beach, and all the beach chairs, toys, etc, that we needed were right there for our use. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and not be on top of each other. The pool table was a big hit with the adults and the kids. The only thing that could be improved on is the pots and pans for the kitchen. We like to cook as a family instead of eating out and we ended up buying some aluminum pans to cook in. Overall it was a great experience and the house is one we would definitely be interested in renting again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. I'm sorry about the pots and pans and yes we could us a new set. Please let me know what they cost and I'll be glad to reimburse you. I look forward to seeing you again. Best regards, Jerry

Spring Break Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family chose Ft. Myers Beach for our spring break destination this year. We always look to sites like HomeAway for condo/house rentals. From the beginning, it was very easy to work with Jerry regarding the rental of this property. He was thorough and prompt when it came to answering questions and follow up regarding the rental.

The house is in a fantastic location. We quickly learned as we arrived on the island that the north end was PACKED with tourists. Traffic was horrendous and we attributed this to being a popular spring break destination. BUT, the house itself was in a perfection spot. Very close to the local Publix grocery store and away from all of the hustle and tourists in the Time Square area. There is a local trolley that provides service to the Times Square tourist area (however we didn't try this but seemed to be pretty convenient).

Spacious is an understatement on this particular property! It boasts two LARGE bedrooms and one smaller bedroom in which the laundry facilities are located. However, there is no shortage of sleeping space: A couch and sectional in the family area but another futon, a trundle bed in the smaller bedroom and two additional futons in the large upper bedroom master area. The house was clean when we arrived and we experienced no issues regarding the house.

One of the perks of the property, aside from it's two minute walk to the beach, is that there are so many extras that are provided that you do not need to bring with you: beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys. There are even several bikes that are available for use.

During our stay, Jerry stopped by to introduce himself and provided us with additional tips/recommendations for our stay. We took part in a dolphin tour at FishTales marina which is on the southern portion of the island (no need to try and find parking or deal with the traffic on the north end), sampled many local restaurants such as Flippers at Lovers Key Resort (fantastic views along with dolphin sightings), Skye's in Santini Plaza, Junkanoo as well as a few other. My husband and daughter also rented a jetski for a dolphin excursion. While the water was rough in the afternoon, they were able to see many dolphins including several babies.

Overall, a wonderful trip and we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. This truly is one of the best locations and best value in Southwest Florida. Jerry As a follow up to other renters, the house is located across the street from the beach (100 yards to beach), approximately 30-40 second walk not two minutes.
