From the pool deck, enjoy views of the lake, pool and two and a half acres of SW Florida paradise. Watch herons, hawks and the occasional eagle fly over the bass pond which is sought out by the local otters from time to time. There is plenty of room for your boat or RV.
The property is covered with numerous palms, pine, oak and moss covered cypress trees, to name just a few, providing the perfect backdrop to beautiful sunsets. The Six Mile Cypress Slough is a few minutes walk from the house.
The first bedroom is nicely furnished with a Dual Control Sleep Number Queen bed, dresser, TV/DVD player and large closet.
The spacious second bedroom also serves as the living room.

The laundry room is just around the corner from the kitchen/dining room. It has a stacked Whirlpool Duet front loading washer and dryer as well as a closet for pantry items. Because of county regulations we had to place the sink and dishwasher in this room just steps away from the main kitchen. Please see the photos which will show the layout.

About Daniel Grahl
Paula and I have always loved two story Key West Style homes with their wraparound porches but didn't want to move to the Islands where they are prevalent. We finally found this beautiful 2.5 acres in 1993 and knew it would be perfect for our dream home. We completed the home the following year and as our children are grown and gone, would like to share it's beauty with others.
Daniel Grahl purchased this House in 1994

What makes this House unique
We love to sit on the second story porches and visit with friends, swapping jokes and stories. As we have lived in Fort Myers since 1979, coming from Indiana, we can offer insights to the Gold Coast of Florida. My best friend calls our home, Shangra La, for good reason.

An Excellent "Classic Florida" Escape
We're a retired couple who have traveled extensively, often with VRBO. We spent six weeks at this location, and found it to be outstanding. It's as serene and truly tropical as it appears in the photos. As other reviewers have mentioned, the owners are excellent to deal with, and genuinely interested in making sure their guests have a comfortable stay. This is a tranquil, peaceful location that's surprisingly close to grocery stores, both spring training baseball parks, and many restaurants. We enjoyed ourselves here, and have already signed up to come back next year.
Well stocked with all essentials.
Very clean and spacious. Quiet and remote but still close to all shopping venues.
We really liked Our stay with Daniel and Paula. They are very friendly and helpful.
Everything was nice and clean, the kids loved the pool and It was in a beatiful area. We went for nice runs and walks in the morning. I hope We can come back some day. We have nothing to complaign about, everything was great.
Very private and quiet spot.
A nice little escape from the madness that is Ft. Meyers streets. Took day trips to Sanibel and Bonita Springs, and a Twins game. Centrally located for all the touristy stuff. Very nice.
Wonderful place to stay!
This was our third year staying here. We spend the month of January here. The rental was recently renovated which gave us so much more living space. It's always very clean! This location is very beautiful and peaceful! Pet friendly home where our dog enjoyed her walks along the quiet road.
Shopping, beaches, and golf courses are nearby. We highly recommend this rental. The owners Dan and Paula are very helpful with anything you may need.
Great property! House is perfect, situated on few acres. Owners live on top floor, great people! Lower level is where we stayed and it is very nice and spacious. Nice area and very close to all areas of ft Myers. Took our two dogs with and had great time. Will definitely go back.
