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.

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.

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.

My family and I just stayed here for the 2nd year in a row. We vacation in Fmb at least once per year. This house is so convenient to everything you could possibly want or need. The owner, Paul was extremely helpful before and during our stay. We definitely will be back again next year. Thanks again!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We took our family of nine for a vacation in August 2014 and stayed in this beautiful Fort Myers Beach home. The owner was very easy to work with and kept us informed of waterline replacement work that was being finished up when we got there. We felt so comfortable in the relaxed atmosphere of this lovely home away from home. The views from the decks were fantastic and I managed to get some nice pictures of the moon over the ocean and sunsets in the evening. The kids loved the pool and being able to walk to the beach whenever they wanted. We plan on taking family vacations frequently and we will definitely be staying here if it is available. I would recommend it highly and thank the Nelson family for making it available.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We love to hear that people also appreciate those beautiful sunsets, and views of the water! We also feel that our home is ideally located for families, especially when you are dealing with various ages. Close to entertainment, restaurants and the Square, but far enough away for peace and relaxation. We certainly do hope to hear from you soon! We would love to have you back to your new "home away from home".
