We have enjoyed living and working over 30 years in southwest Florida, have grown children, love dogs, (particularly fond of the dachshund breed) and appreciate the gift of family and friends.

Mary Jane Williams purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary Jane Williams chose North Fort Myers

We feel blessed to have what we feel is a rare opportunity to own such a unique and beautiful waterfront home and hope our guests enjoy the private, peaceful setting it offers. It is a very special property and would appeal to the nature lover who likes to relax, unwind and yet be in driving distance to Ft. Myers, Estero, Sanibel & Captiva Islands, Cape Coral & Pine Island. Guests can take advantage of opportunity to charter or rent a boat and experience some of the nearby water activities, Gulf, Back Bay, River and Deep Sea Fishing. There are day Key West Trips by boat available and you are less than 2 hours across the State from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, approx. 4-5 hours from Orlando/Disneyland, approx. 1 1/2 hours away from Sarasota and only about 1 hour away from Pt. Charlotte/Punta Gorda. Area is also home to 2 major baseball spring training teams, (The Boston Red Sox & The Minnesota Twins). Downtown Ft. Myers is nearby and has activities like Art and Music Walk & nice restaurants, night life and a Farmer's Market. For the Shopper you can go to Edison Mall (a short distance from house), The Bell Tower Shops, Miramar Discount Shops, Gulf Coast Mall, and Coconut Mall..all approx. within 30 minutes or less from home. If you are a reader there are 2 nearby libraries. Lehr's Bait and Tackle is just down the street where you can talk to experts about local fishing. So much to do in the area and owners have provided lots of vacationer guides, maps and suggestions inside the home to assist in choosing activities that may appeal to you.

What makes this house unique

Gourmet styled kitchen with open kitchen counter/bar is perfect for entertaining. The beautiful setting has a wrap-around-porch and the special character of this home is drawn from its spectacular natural panoramic views. Natural setting and a nice get-away for the more private guest.

Private waterfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

This lovely waterfront home is on a very private lot at the end of a long, gated driveway. Situated adjacent to a 90 deg. bend on Powell Creek, no neighbors are visible looking across the river to the south and west. Open sunny lawns are shaded in many places by mature trees and palms. We stayed at this property for the month of March and enjoyed many relaxing days on the expansive, wraparound deck watching ducks and river otters in the creek. We enjoyed the spacious floor plan, the beautiful décor, comfortable furnishings and well-equipped kitchen (SubZero fridge, Wolf gas range/stove, KitchenAid dishwasher, Kuerig coffemaker, large flat screen TVs, washer/dryer downstairs and a new propane grill outside). It is obvious that the owners take great pride in the house and genuinely care about the comfort of their guests. The location is close enough to the all the amenities that downtown Fort Meyers has to offer, but private enough to feel like you have your own sanctuary. Three docks on the creek provide convenient launch points for the resident double kayak. Mary Jane was wonderful to work with and extremely accommodating. Would highly recommend this house.

North Ft. Myers Secret

  • 5 of 5

This is a great venue. The owners went out of their way to accommodate

our needs. Great view of Powell creek and the grounds are plentiful with

flowers and plants. The only set back is the steps to the upper level living

area. If you have no problem with stairs, then this is an ideal property to

stay at while visiting the Ft. Myers area. We were looking for a property

with a swim pool, but the other amenities made up for the lack of the pool. Hopefully, looking forward to returning here next year,

We just returned to NH after spending a month in Mary Jane's wonderful home. Renting sight unseen can make you a little nervous but have no fear!! This house was so much more than we hoped for---spacious, beautifully furnished, and so well stocked, we lacked nothing. The property was very private with a large lawn that our little dog loved to explore. We spent most evenings (and some early mornings) out back on the wrap around porch, watching the beautiful sunsets, very peaceful. About every other day, the resident alligator would float by and the ducks would hop onto the dock, just in case...we even saw a few otters playing in the grass and , of course, all sorts of birds. Mary Jane kept in touch to make sure everything was OK and made sure we knew that she was just a phone call away if we needed anything---she was a delight! Don't hesitate to book this property on your next visit to FL---you won't be disappointed!!

This gorgeous home was perfect for our needs, and much more. MaryJane & Rick were gracious owners of this peaceful paradise. MaryJane was very responsive thoughtout the rental process and was helpful in every way. Their rental home was tastefully decorated, clean, comfortable and equipped with many additional amenities that you would expect from a seasonal rental. TEN stars for the home & owners, MaryJane & Rick. We were close to shopping areas and plenty of restaurants. The wild life was wonderful . Almost every day we were experiencing something different from many kinds of birds, ducks, & otters. They were always putting on a show for us. We will definitely stay here again in the future. It truly felt like you were at home. Thank you very much from Susan & Jerry

Serenity for the nature lover

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Rick and MaryJane's well-appointed Key West style home returns you to the feel of Old Florida living. The home has a very tranquil setting with lots of green space for our Labradoodle and is surrounded by a natural creek off the Caloosahatchee River. From the wrap-around porch not a day goes by without a citing of wildlife: river otters, anhingas, hawks, eagles, turtles, manatees, egrets, herons and all sorts of jumping fish. There's a kayak and gas grill provided for your use. If fishing or photography is your "thng" you will love this property. Rick and Mary Jane are such delightful and gracious owners who take care of you like family. They even called in a plumber on a Sunday to replace a faulty faucet! The photos on the website are accurate representations of how the house really looks! We stayed for 3 months and certainly plan to rent here again.

Exceptional Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with my sister and her husband, spent the month of March in this absolutely spectacular home. Every consideration has been paid to the detail of this home. The decorating is beautiful and every possible amenity was provided. It is a very spacious house and provided ample privacy for each couple with the bedrooms being on opposite sides, as well as numerous areas to get away, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We all took full advantage of the comfortable furniture on the wrap-around deck. The owners were very attentive to our needs. The pictures and description on the website are right on!
