About Kevin & Nancy Johnson

My husband Kevin was born and raised here in Ft Myers, I moved here at age 13 from Maryland and have lived here ever since. We are locals and currently live in Estero. We are kid friendly, having four kids of our own. The house is fully loaded with all the extras for kids. When visiting feel free to ask us any questions about the area, we are available at all times.

Kevin & Nancy Johnson purchased this house in 2013

Why Kevin & Nancy Johnson chose Florida South West

Our home has a great location. We are within walking distance to the beach and most shops and restaurants. No need for a car, there is a trolley service to take you to those places that are too far to walk such as Lover's Key and the grocery store (Publix). The views from our home are beautiful. You won't have a need to leave once you are out back relaxing by the pool and watching all the activity on the back bay. You will hear music from the local restaurants, watch the boats go by and every once in a while you will get a free dolphin show and sometime the manatees too.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful Bay views, watch the dolphins play, the sunset and sunrise from the pool & dock are amazing. No need for a car, most restaurants and shops are within walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was the perfect respite away from snow and cold up north.

We spent the week relaxing by the pool and down on the beach...

Rum Runners at the Lani Kai were a 5 minute walk away - maybe too close :)

All in all, a superb week in Fort Myers Beach! Exactly what we've come to expect. Hope to return soon.

All the amenities you need

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here as a back to school getaway with our grandchildren, before school starts.

The kids love this place, close walk to beach and shopping, great pool on the water and they love the game room downstairs.

We also love the convenience of the location and all the amenities that are provided. Great view of the bay to enjoy your morning coffee.

Would recommend this house to anyone looking for a vacation spot in Ft Myers beach.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home. Watching the wildlife and the boat activity was my favorite. Home is very well stocked. Only improvements I can think of would be a new coffeemaker, took forever to dispense a cup, and a floor or table lamp, something other than overhead lighting in the living room. Thank you for sharing your home.
