Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Wonderful views of sunset, gulf, and beach just out your door. Tropically decorated and full of all the amenities to make your vacation relaxing and fun. Five minute walk to Times Square area so shopping, restaurants, and entertainment are within walking distance. Island trolley is easily accessible.

The house has plenty of windows and lots of natural light. It is stilted, and has two floors, offering great partial views of the gulf. Located directly on a beach access road (#31), the house is one back from the beach, literally making it just steps to the 'sand between your toes'! We are located in a perfect location--close enough to Times Square for shopping and nightlife-- but far enough away for quiet relaxation in a section of single family homes. The best thing is that it is only a 5 minute drive off of the Island even in peak season!

For those rainy days: a TV in every bedroom and the living room area!

A beautiful heated private pool and landscaped yard make you feel like you are in a tropical paradise! Inside you will find comfortable furnishings and welcoming decor. We update our home yearly for our guest's comfort, striving to make your vacation as care-free as possible! What more could you ask for?

About The Owner

We are a family from Northwest Indiana that has vacationed in Ft. Myers Beach for over 40 Years. We love the friendliness of the island, the beautiful sand beach, and that warm Florida sunshine! We love to travel and this picture of us was taken at Denali National Park in Alaska. Far from Florida's sunshine!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Ft Myers Beach

We just can't get enough of the great gulf views and beautiful sunsets that you experience from our beach or decks. It is a very easy drive from the International airport (30 minutes), within walking distance of restaurants and shops, a trolley ride away from groceries, and a very easy exit off the Island even during peak season! And yet, we are in a family friendly and quieter area right off the 'popular' Times Square.

What makes this house unique

You can relax in our private pool or visit a gorgeous white sand beach just a few steps away. You can sit on our decks and watch beautiful sunsets or cool off in air conditioning on our comfortable furnishings. You can walk to restaurants, shops, and lounges or take the trolley to wonderful parks. We take pride in the fact that we update our home yearly to provide for our guests comfort.

The Best Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect! My family stayed at this house in July of 2018. There is just one small house that sits in front of this one on the beach and because this house is on stilts, you get a perfect view of the water. According to my 6 year old, the sand is just 72 steps away! Beach access right in front of the house makes it super easy to transport little ones and all the beach gear. When it says you can walk to the shops and Times Square area you instantly think "Can I really?". I have a 6 & 7 year old and we walked to restaurants and shops every evening with temps in the 90s. It was so easy! There is even a cute little store a few houses down that has souvenirs, basic goods, snacks, and even ice cream! If you want to do water sports like jet skis or parasailing, the booth is a 1 minute walk down the beach. There were plenty of supplies at the house such as towels, kitchen utensils, and chairs and toys for the beach. It was so convenient to have the grill and make a quick meal while the kids swam in the pool. The bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable with 3 rooms upstairs and the room with 2 twins on the first level. The house was so clean that we had no signs of anyone else staying there before us. The cleaning people do a wonderful job! The kids practically lived in the pool and it is the perfect size. The pool starts out at just a few feet and gradually gets deeper so the whole family was happy! Plenty of lounge chairs for everyone. The house is decorated very freshly and nothing looks old. You can tell the owners really care. Upon booking the trip, Paul was so kind and gave us lots of pointers for our first time both renting a house and visiting Fort Myers Beach. Don't miss out on the late night or early morning seat on the balcony to enjoy the gorgeous view of the water. I honestly think this is the best value house in Fort Myers Beach. Book this rental!

Wow - don't second guess yourself. This is a hidden gem!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the property. I was a bit worried going through VRBO having had issues before in a different locale and made it a point to be the first one in. THIS PLACE IS SOOOOOO cute. So immaculate, so updated, you feel so welcome. Your own pool next to the beach with sunrises or sunsets at your disposal. The strip is right around the corner with a coffee house accessible too. I just don't know how to say it any better. The pictures do not do this place justice. If I could buy it I would!

Owners are fully accessible with the vacation rental place down the street who even held our luggage for the check out. Dishes, beach towels, clean pool, pool toys, beach toys, towels, beach towels, TV, Phone, balcony's...we were all so very sad leaving. We had 6 adults and we all couldn't say enough. I've heard rumors that the owners are updating the flooring the kitchen come fall. I cant imagine changing this place. My only suggestion is to add a nice dresser in bedroom three upstairs and raise the bed so it equates to the other two rooms. Though we did not use the bedroom down, perhaps a working TV and dresser there too?

Don't second guess yourself, just go. 3 bedrooms up with a full bath. Down, twin beds and another full bath. full privacy in all the rooms. Great A/C too. You won't be sorry!! Best place on Fort Myers Beach in my option!!

Great Access to the beach

  • 4 of 5

North end Near the bridge, which was great to avoid the heavy traffic. Just one house back from beach, with views of the beach from pool and upper deck. Relaxed comfortable and clean, although we did not do a lot of cooking appeared to have anything you might need.

Only issue was the workmen working on fence made for a very noisy metal sawing noise for 2 days of our vacation.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7. Myself and my wife, our 4 year old twins, my brother, and my parents.

Plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The pool was so great. Warm and comfortable at any time of day.

House is pretty much right on the beach, one house back. We walked to Times Square a few times, lots of little places to eat and shop around the home.

Easy drive to Sanibel Island, which is beautiful as well.

House was clean and everything in working order.
