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 Fort Myers Beach

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! Located on a corner lot, the landscaping we added is so beautiful and plush. So many flowering plants and palms to enjoy.

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!

Wow! Wow! Wow! If you're looking for a fantastic place to stay on Ft. Myers Beach this is the place! The house is absolutely gorgeous! It has everything you need to make your vacation perfect! Plenty of room for a family of 4 - 6 people. Immaculate home with all the extras, tv's, cable, internet, printer, 2 car drive and covered car port so you have ample parking for your car(s) and guests, washer / dryer, beach equipment, gas grill, bicycles, patio furniture, and the list just goes on and on. Everything is immaculate and in pristine condition. It's located right across the street from the beach and you can walk there in less than 5 minutes! The beach is gorgeous and the house is spectacular! The pictures don't do it justice. We're staying here again on our next trip to Ft. Myers beach or the Ft. Myers area! Thank you Tami, Terry, and Randy for making this vacation the best ever!

Gorgeous Updated Classic Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderful! We were able to check-in as soon as we arrived. Randy was so helpful, showed us around the house, and offered suggestions on what to check out while we were in town. We didn't rent a car because we wanted to see if we would really needed one. The property has 4 bikes with baskets on the front, so we were able to bike everywhere during the trip! We love being active, so this was a great way for us to get exercise in and explore Fort Meyers Beach. The house itself is very very clean and recently updated. The owners have literally thought of everything to make your stay exceptional-they go above and beyond to make your stay memorable and comfortable. There are a few really cool things about the property as well-like the outdoor shower! It was so nice to come back from the beach and be able to shower outside (they even had shampoo, conditioner, and soap available!) Not only is the house itself wonderful, but it is directly across from the beach! The owners provided beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, beach toys and a cooler. The property is also less than a 10 minute walk to the heart of the downtown area. We LOVED all of the restaurants and bars-the grouper is fantastic! I really cannot express how great our stay was! We are definitely going back!!

Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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!
