About The Owner

I'm a NJ teacher.

Since I cannot be here during the school year. I rent the house from Septemebr thru June and enjoy it during the summer months.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Fort Myers Beach

We have been vacationing all over Florida for years. We settled here as it is a small paradise with great beaches and a nice community!

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the white sandy beaches!

Shell Mound deeded beach access only 300 foot steps away!

Relax by our pool and our heated SPA watching boats go by in the canal or fish jumping in and out of the water...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect location and great time in this home!

This place was perfect for us, 3 senior women going to spend a winter month in Florida, but it would be right for you and your family too. It is a cute one level about 1200 sq ft house that is also handicap accessible and a nice walk into town. You don't need a car as the trolley is just 6 houses away and costs .25...yea twenty five cents to travel from one end of town to the other.

Maria the owner is wonderful and has everything in the home that you could want, so just take your bathing suit and enjoy!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

This steps-from-the-beach family ranch-style home in Fort Myers Beach is awesome! Six of us thoroughly enjoyed the owners' 3-bedroom beautifully furnished and clean accommodations, along with a relaxing lanai with saltwater pool and hot tub along the canal. Owners Maria and Ralph are very responsive to questions and offered great suggestions and tips. There are plenty of linens, towels, beach towels, beach chairs/umbrellas/toys, pool toys, 4 adult/2 kids bicycles, a grill, and the kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need to make meals, although there are so many wonderful restaurants nearby! There are TVs (with cable) in each bedroom, hair dryers in each bathroom, and comfy seating throughout! With a handy washer and dryer in the 2-car garage, you won't need to pack many clothes! The Estero Blvd. construction should be finished soon, and the air-conditioned Trolley is still 75 cents/ride--or you can purchase day/week passes. If we can get our family schedules coordinated soon, we'll be looking to reserve another week -- that is, if you haven't already reserved it!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Maria's house! We have two little children and it was a perfect distance to the beach for them, and thay also loved the heated pool. The pool heater broke half way through or stay, and although the owners were quick to respond, they didn't manage to fix this before we left, which resulted in the kids not being able to use the pool for the remaning time of our stay. Maria compensated us for this.

The house was really nice and clean, and there were plenty of spare towels, linen etc. The kitchen was well equipped.

The only one thing that was slightly negative, was the time it took Maria to respond once we'd decided we wanted to book her house. However, once conact was established everything went smoothly.

We highly reccommend this property and we'd love to come back and stay!

Excellent! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house and location were perfect. The house was nice and clean and had everything we needed. We totally enjoyed the pool every day and it even managed to cool down a bit so we could use the hot tub. Definitely on our list to go again.

We had a great time...The pool and hot tub were amazing! We had 6 adults for 2 weeks, spent most of our time when we were at the house on the patio, Coffee in the morning, all our meals, evenings in the hot tub & pool, played cards, and little guitar music ... we even made a video for singsnap! Lol! Quick walk to the beach (1 block) & trolley stop was right in front of 7-11 to go north to Time Square for restaurants & shopping and Bowditch Park on the north end of the island or you can go south to Lovers Key Park. Maria was great to work with, she even rearranged her schedule for us so we could have it for 2 weeks when we made our reservation!

Best value!

  • 5 of 5

If you are reading this you are thinking about renting in Fort Myers Beach. I did a lot of research on what part of the island , what type of house and which house to rent. As far as my money is concerned, this is the best deal.

You are located in an area that is not crowded and is quiet. The walk to the beach is one block and takes 5 minutes. You also are within walking distance from a pretty decent bar/restaurant (Junkanoo) that is good for both adults and children. Very short drive to the more commercial areas for bars, restaurants and shopping one way and a Publix the other way.

The house is a single house and private. A much better selection that a multi floor condo or a joined home if you are looking for some privacy for you and your family. The house is very nice, spotlessly clean and well organized.

The owners were really great, efficient and anticipate your needs. An example is that we had flight issues and arrived at midnight. As I was approaching the area I was wondering how we would ever find the house. I turned the corner and there was the mail box with the address displayed like a beacon. Another example is that I screwed up the Wifi and e mailed the owners on a Sunday morning thinking I would hear from them Monday. But they called me in 30 minutes. (luckily I discovered my mistake) but is is all about the effort on their part.

And finally, the pool. The pool is great. Clean, on the canal, private with table and chairs for meals. If you are going to Florida you need to have a pool. And if you have a pool why not have you own pool?

Great place. Highly recommended.
