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!

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.

As I'm a fanatic about reviews, this home immediately caught my eye on VRBO. I booked it after speaking w Randy & when we got there, it is EXACTLY how it's shown in the pictures! The house is PERFECT! It has everything you need to spend a great week at the beach! It's only about a 5 minute walk to Times Square & literally across the street from the beach. And with it being at the northern end of the island - it's a little quieter than right down in the thick of things but so close to it that you have the best of both worlds! Randy is right next door so if you need anything, he's available. Randy was super helpful during the rental process & always quick to answer any questions! We have already planned our trip back next year & honestly feel we have found where we'll retire one day! You can't go wrong with this house. I can't wait til next year!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a beach wedding over the holidays and rented this house for our family of 4. It was perfect--everyone had their own space as opposed to being crammed in a small hotel room. The house is clean and everything new. We love the location and layout of this home. Randy is a great guy and was always prompt to respond to anything we needed. We will definitely be returning next year. We only wish we could stay more often! Love, love this house!

Perfect Week Away!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a perfect place for a beach holiday. Randy was easy to work with and helped make sure we were at home for our vacation. The beach was right across the street, Times Square shopping and restaurants a short walk away, and still the cottage was peaceful. Everything we could ever need was provided; we were able to enjoy cooking in, relaxing on the porch, going down to the beach with all the supplies, biking, and kayaking! Everything was new in the house, the beds were comfortable, and the house big enough for our family of 5 to be together or spread out. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a place where everything is ready for you to have a beautiful vacation.

Perfect Rental for a Perfect Beach Week!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from an amazing week at Ft. Myers Beach and are already missing the Florida sunshine and our newly discovered home away from home at the Sands of Paradise! It was the most perfect beach rental and we are already making plans to rent it again next year! We loved everything about it! The location was ideal as it provided both immediate beach access as well as just a short stroll to dinner in Times Square. The house was very comfortable, nicely furnished and fully stocked with everything that you could want or need. It was the perfect fit for our family of four, which includes two very active teenage boys. We enjoyed sitting and grilling out on the deck in the midst of the beautiful landscaping. We enjoyed the use of the four bikes for our daily rides, and everything that we needed for our trips to the beach was provided as well - chairs, umbrella, beach towels, beach cart, cooler, boogie boards, bocce balls etc. etc.! The wonderful property manager, Randy, even let us borrow his kayaks! His hospitality and attentiveness to our needs made our trip so very enjoyable. Randy, our two boys remarked that you were one "cool dude!" Seriously, we did appreciate everything that you did to make our week in paradise so enjoyable! Thanks again, and we do plan on seeing you next year!
