About the Property

Discover the botanical beauty of this private estate.

This two story home is nestled in a private cypress reserve that is walking distance to the Six Mile Cypress Slough . The rental unit encompasses the entire first floor of this beautiful Key West style home.

The first floor unit is 2200 square feet under roof which includes a main bedroom, full bath, laundry room, Dining/Kitchen area, a spacious Second Bedroom/Living Room with closet, an enclosed Florida Room and covered drive through carport. (The owners live in the second floor unit which is locked off from the first floor rental. Prior to renovations, completed in May of 2016, the rental was much smaller and a few of the reviews made mention of the unit size which now is double the previous square footage.)

Share breathtaking views overlooking a manicured 2.5 acre park like setting and large saltwater pool and deck.

Guests have claimed it's like living in a nature preserve.

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, Prism TV/DVD player and large closet.

The spacious second bedroom also serves as the living room. The Natuzzi leather queen sleeper/sofa, day bed and two leather rocker/recliners make this a comfortable room to enjoy the 32 inch flat screen TV atop an electric fireplace. Double French doors open on to the glass enclosed Florida Room overlooking the landscaped front yard. High Definition Century Link Prism also provides high speed internet.

The kitchen/dining room features plenty of cabinets, a 10.3 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, microwave, countertop oven and a dual burner cooktop. The table seats up to six and a TV is provided to entertain all while cooking or dining.

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.

There is one full bathroom with a shower/tub.

The 24 foot, 13,500 gallon saltwater pool and raised composite deck offer the perfect place to enjoy the views of the pool, pond and lush landscaping.

Our rates are on a nightly or monthly basis. The minimum stay is one week.

We do not charge a cleaning or pet fee!

NOTE: From May 2017 through October 2017 a new home will be under construction 100 yards behind this unit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Fort Myers, FL, USA:
Nature Lovers Paradise

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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. We are also Dog lovers and welcome any visitor with canines under 25 pounds.
