Beautiful views from the deck
We just stayed here the first week of April, 4 adults. The house was very nice, had all of the amenities we needed, we enjoyed shooting pool. The beach was nice and not too busy in front of the house, we enjoyed watching the pelicans, dolphins and sunsets from the deck. It was actually our favorite part. It would have been nice if there were some sort of shade, an awning or table umbrella on the deck because the mid day sun was blazing, but we made use of that time by shooting pool or taking naps...lol. We had no issues during our stay so did not have any interactions with the owners.
Beyond the owner's control, but was a surprise to us was the massive road construction project taking place right in front of the house. Luckily, the Publix across the street was walking distance if we needed a few things, otherwise we saved our road travelling when we could for off peak hours (early or late). Also, the last tenants were obviously not as courteous and left the gas grill a mess, taking no additional time to clean the grill after cooking fish.
Overall, it was a wonderful stay, my parents enjoyed themselves immensely advising it was one of their best vacations in years. If we travelled to the area again, (which the construction should be done by then) we would be happy to book here again.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay! Sorry about the road construction and the grill, that should have been taken care of by the cleaners. There should also be umbrellas under the house, I will look into that as well.
Very spacious house, clean and well updated. Loved how close to the beautiful white beach. Just steps away. Enjoyed the deck every night at sunset. All the comforts of home. The owner is great also. Very prompt with response to any question. Would rent again in a heartbeat with a family group.
Thank you, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay!
Very family friendly! The ages in our group ranged from 12 to 83 and it was perfect for everyone. The location is perfect... the beach was not busy like it was further down a bit. Watched dolphins play and saw beautiful sunsets right off the back Deck. Everything is close by - groceries right across the street. The pool table was perfect for my 12 year old. I highly reccommend this place and plan to rent again! Best Christmas ever!

We are so happy you all enjoyed your visit and look forward to hosting you again!
Comfortable and relaxing...
Thank you, Barbara, for a wonderful week at the Banyan Beach House. The five stars aren't for luxury, but for comfort, location, and easy rental process. This is a simple beach cottage that had everything we needed. With a grocery store across the street, the well-appointed kitchen, and our private dining deck on the beach, we never went out to dinner. The property is landscaped for privacy and we appreciated the trees for shade in the afternoons. The pool table was a hit, the beds were comfortable, and the location was perfect. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we've had in a long time.
Thank you! We are so glad that you all enjoyed your stay!
What a wonderful home that made for a perfect beach getaway vacation!
Our family loved staying in this charming beachside cottage. We loved everything about it: proximity to beach and restaurants, room layout and the pool table! The memories will remain with us long after the short amount of time we were there. Barbara, the owner, was also wonderful and answered all our questions. We hope to return again one year!
A thousand thanks once more and five stars all the way!!!
Thank you so much! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay!
True beachfront beach house
Everything you could want in a beach house. Grand children had a great time. Saw dolphins, tons of sand dollars, crabs, sea life. Would definitely do it again.
Located on Florida's Gulf Coast, Fort Myers Beach is a seven mile long barrier island. It has a wide beach piled high with sugar-sand and is perfect for early morning shelling. There are many water activities including; parasailing, rental boats and waverunners, and fishing charters. Other interesting activities include; Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum, miniature golfing and Outlet Shopping Centers. In addition to Ft. Myers Beach there are over 100 other barrier islands to explore and the nearby Great Calusa Blueway offers 40 miles of canoe and kayak trails.
