About Jay

Originally from suburbs of Chicago, been enjoying the Southwest Florida Lifestyle for many years. Split family graduating from Florida State University & UF. We currently live in Cape Coral, Florida just 20 minutes from our vacation home, so we are here to answer any questions or assist with any needs of our guests! Since we know the area well, the house is perfectly equipped with all of the information on things to see and do and comforts of home to totally guarantee your vacation experience a wonderful one. . .it's all about making memories!

Jay purchased this House in 2011

Why Jay chose Fort Myers Beach

We own two homes on San Carlos Island and enjoy the natural feel and waterfront wildlife viewing in the area, you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere perfectly on Emily lane. Whether it is paddling the canoe around, exploring the backbay flats fishing, catching delicious fish, or buzzing around on a waverunner its all just relaxing. The beach area has such a great feel, the people are friendly and the atmosphere is always stress free! We love the convenience to everything. . .no need for a car. . . walk to over 5 local casual bars and restaurants and enjoy a cold one and some delicious cuisine. We enjoy bringing my elderly mom down and whether it is watching the boats go by in the distance or the birds in the sky always puts a smile on her face, I love to see her relax out on the back porch all day! Today we watched four dolphin play right off the dock, saw Osprey diving for fish and even a bald eagle flew by, the views are just unbelievable!

What makes this House unique

Avoid the beach traffic, close enough to enjoy the beach but far enough to avoid the traffic and enjoy the peacefulness too! The most impressive thing is the beautiful million dollar view of Hurricane bay and abundant wildlife, also never get tired of seeing the sunrise, as they are never the same, or the sky of stars or catch the full moon over the bay it is breathtaking!

                                                              Nice quiet place on a beautiful bay.

                                                              Nice quiet place on a beautiful bay.

                                                              Lovely and Peaceful

                                                              We had a great stay at Jay's Bayfront Getaway. It is a lovely unit, with a beautiful, airy living room and both a covered upper deck and open lower deck. The kitchen was very well-equipped for us.

                                                              We enjoyed watching the wildlife from the deck. A great blue heron welcomed us and hung out on the deck with us for a while the first day, literally just a few feet away from us.

                                                              Over the course of out stay we did see a manatee and a couple of dolphins swimming near the deck.

                                                              There is a nice variety of restaurants within walking distance. (Dixie Fish was our favorite!) We walked to the beach, and I biked over the bridge to the beach a couple of times (on bikes Jay provided). We also took out the canoe and meandered through the mangroves. Lots to do close by. (And who knew that the walking-distance Parrot Key is the craziest Packer bar I've ever seen!)

                                                              We especially appreciated Jay being there to greet us and show us the property when we arrived. The welcome basket was especially nice! We would certainly stay here again.

                                                              Thanks for your nice review.

                                                              Glad you all enjoyed yourselves and had fun on the canoe and bikes. The back bay viewing of wildlife and the moon on the water. . . peaceful is the perfect way to describe it!!

                                                              Take care, stay warm, and we welcome you back anytime!

                                                              Beyond our expectations!

                                                              There is not one thing that we would have changed about this rental. As a matter of fact, it had more than we could have ever expected. I could go on and on, but I want it to be available when we rent again. Thank you for making our Christmas so special.

                                                              Thanks so much for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your vacation! We try to have the place equipped so you can just relax and feel at home! We welcome you back anytime!

                                                              Happy New Year! Thanks Again,

                                                              Jay and Allison

                                                              Perfect all around

                                                              The place is not as advertised, it was better. Laid back and relax. Clean and well stocked with what ever needed for beach/fishing vacation. The location is great close enough to all the hot spots and far enough to relax. Me and my wife came on our anniversary and were very happy with everything. Saw dolphins every morning, searays and a bald eagle.

                                                              The BEST of the Best!

                                                              As the title states, The BEST. It is everything that was described. We are used to packing so much stuff for vacations but when you stay here all you need to bring is your clothes. The owners keep this rental so equipped with anything you might need. It is also very clean and the beds are great!! Jay made the rental arrangements so easy. We had never rented in this manner before so we were a little nervous. However, he could not have been more cordial, informative and was sure to let us know we could call at any time with questions, etc. Great place to just relax and enjoy the view!! Ken and Kim

                                                              Just as they say in real estate -- location, location, location! Restaurants, shrimp market, ferry to Key West, pirate cruise, all within walking distance. Add to that this inviting, comfortable home with not only a deck but a patio as well, and you have the recipe for a fabulous vacation. In addition everything you need, from salt and pepper to umbrellas; from movie and music CD's to hair dryers -- it's all there! Tom & Michelle
