Location

Located on the quiet north end of Estero Island also known as Ft. Myers Beach, yet within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of the Times Square and Bay Walk entertainment districts. The majestic everglades are just a short drive away, as well as Bush Gardens and all the theme parks of the Orlando area.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1950

About the owner: Our family owned and operated a beachfront resort on Estero Island for almost 50 years, this cottage was the beginning of that resort and has been honored with an Historic Designation. Three generations of the family still reside on the island and are involved in many community activities.

Why the Owner Chose North Island, Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
This cottage was our most popular and generations of families returned year after year. This cottage is large and spacious giving families lots of room to relax. You can see the bay & harbor from the living area, dinning area and even the kitchen. There is a large open deck with plenty of space for entertaining family & friends as well as just relaxing watching the dolphins & boats go by. The dock offers a great place to fish, sun, watch the dolphins play and see all the boats go by. Enjoy old Florida living at its best.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage has beautiful views of the sunrise over Estero Bay. Our local bottle-nose dolphins can be seen daily, as well as an occasional manatee and our native birds can be seen in abundance. the location is quiet but within an easy walk of the Times Square entertainment where you will find many shops, restaurants, ice cream shop and a candy shop
