About Randy Duffy

We are from the midwest and love getting away to enjoy warm sunshine and spending time relaxing on the beach away from snow and cold... is there anything better?

Randy Duffy purchased this house in 2013

Why Randy Duffy chose Florida South West

We love the casualness of Ft. Myers beach all the great restaurants to enjoy island fun. We picked this property because of its north end island location and how close it is to everything!

What makes this house unique

The north end of the island is quiet and offers easy access to the mainland and Fort Myers by car. It is a two minute walk to the beach and a ten minute walk to Times Square and many fine and fun restaurants. It is also close to the fishing pier. The new Estero Blvd. provides for a beautiful bike ride or casual stroll. You definitely can enjoy all that Florida and Ft. Myers Beach has to offer!

The house was so CLEAN! This house was decorated so cute and it was a very relaxing home. I have rented alot of homes in Fort Myers Beach area and this has been the only house with so many amenities. Laundry soap, dryer sheets, bikes, beach cart, beach chairs, tons of beach towels, kitchen fully stock like you have in your house. They even provided bar of soap (brand new in a sealed package) in the full bath and in the outside shower. Oh and that outside shower was a hit! There is a dispenser with shampoo, conditioner and soap! Everyone loved the outside shower!!! I can go on and on with everything that came with the house but this review would be going on forever. Randy was amazing to deal with. He was on it! He responded to your emails so quickly. He was so organized and detailed oriented. He greeted us at the house when we arrived. He showed us the house and just talked to us. He was great! I never felt so welcomed before like that. Our vacation was so stress free and relaxing. I highly recommend this house and we will definitely be returning!!!

The location and amenities are second to none. Located directly across from access to the beach on Estero - its a quick walk to the beach, or shopping or restaurants. We found that despite being directly on Estero it was quiet at this end of the beach. The house was beautiful with an amazing landscaped yard. The house was fully stocked with everything you could possibly think of, bikes, beach supplies, washer/dryer, etc. You didn't have to go purchase your own laundry supplies, basic spices, or paper products b/c they cover all that which is a nice extra touch when only there for a short time and avoiding that added expense. Randy was awesome to deal with - he was out of town while we were there so disappointed to not have met him in person but he reached out and communicated over the phone ahead of the trip and he checked in during our visit to make sure everything was ok. Gave great advice on where to eat, things to do, etc. We tried out the Salty Crab for dinner and enjoyed it. We also went to Heavenly Biscuit two days in a row for breakfast - yes, a tourist stop but so so yummy (and so not healthy but it was vacation!). We also had lunch at SOB at Randy's suggestion and it was AMAZING. Definitely would stay at this location again when we return to Ft. Myers!

We have stayed all over FL but this location and house are the best! The yard is full of flowers and palm trees. There was nothing we needed. Having a washer and dryer was great and I LOVED the outside shower! A short walk to restaurants, shops and bars. The ocean is so close with a gorgeous beach and lots of sea shells! We enjoyed a dolphin, shelling boat trip and touring The Edison and Ford Wintet Estates. Lots of fun beach restaurants close by. The Broadway Palm Dinner Theater is a lot of fun! A wonderful week in an amazing house! Thanks for everything Randy.

WOW! Stress Free, felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

Lets start with Randy! Great guy that made us feel welcomed from the beginning. Place was super clean, great layout for family, great landscaping. Outdoor shower was used daily by my boys, location was extremely convenient to the beach and pier. And fully stocked with utensils, dishes, towels, soap, washer/dryer. Even provided a grill. Great touch with 4 bikes, beach chairs, and cart to haul around. Randy went out of his way to replace a bike pump immediately for us. Also had coolers and umbrella for the beach. All we really needed was to show up in swimsuits....everything else was there! Thanks Randy, we had a BLAST!

Paradise on Fort Myers Beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean with comfortable beds, had lots of amenities, and was at a perfect location. It was just a five minute walk to times square and directly across from the beach; the beach was easily accessible from the house. They provided us with all sorts of things for the beach including beach chairs, beach towels, and even bikes. My family and I have been coming down to Fort Myers for 15 years and this was the best property we have ever rented!! The property manager, Randy, was very helpful as well. We will definitely rent this property again!!

Owner's Response: Kim, We are so happy you loved our home any everything provided for a great beach day on your vacation in Ft. Myers! We really appreciate you sharing how great our home is and for you to say "Best property we have EVER rented" is the ultimate compliment! Hope you enjoyed our new outdoor shower too! We love providing our guests with plenty of paper towels, bath tissue, trash bags, paper plates, and more, so you don't have to worry about purchasing them as part of your grocery list. Just a little something extra that other homes don't always have. Thanks again & we do hope to see you again next year!

We had the best time. The house was so clean and had everything we needed. The owner new we were arriving late and stocked some beers and snacks. So close to everything we wanted to do. All the beach gear and bikes. Nice grill and deck and covered area for escaping the sun if needed. Recently added outdoor shower is a plus. We met the owners and they are the best. Manager next door even whipped up some margs for cinco de mayo! Can't wait to go back.
