About the property

9 Bedrooms, 7.5 Baths, Sleeps 18

If “the more the merrier” is your vacation motto, you’ll love Southern Dream Mansion. Located direct Gulf Front with an elevator, new heated pool (October 1, 2015), it’s a 9-bedroom (one being a den), 7.5-bath duplex that sleeps up to 18 people.

Each half of the house has its own locked outside entrance, ensuring plenty of privacy and making it ideal for 2 families as well as for a multigenerational family reunion. At the same time, you can all get together for meals on the deck, movie nights, or stroll on the beach.

Each side of the duplex has its own fully equipped kitchen. From full-size refrigerator/freezer to coffee maker to pots and pans to tableware, the kitchens have everything you need--except for food, of course! Each side also has a dishwasher, a washing machine, and a dryer; after all, when you’re this close to the beach and the water, the last thing you want is to be stuck inside scrubbing dishes or doing laundry.

There are 2 separate living rooms, each of which opens onto a screened-in deck. Furnished with tables and chairs, the decks serve as informal dining rooms. No matter what you’re serving, it’ll taste even better with a side helping of the sunshine and salt-scented sea air! You can sit the kids on one of the decks and the adults on the other. Or set up the kids at one of the breakfast bars adjacent to the kitchens while the adults enjoy a quieter, more leisurely dinner on the deck. There will be a new heated pool as of November 1, 2015.

One side of the house has a master bedroom on the same floor as the living room and kitchen. Stretch out on the queen-size bed, prop yourself up on the pillows to watch some late-night TV, and let the gentle whir of the ceiling fan and the soft rustling of the breeze among the palm trees lull you to sleep.

One of the units, Island Girl has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and an elevator. The other side at Warm Sands has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

Because a trolley runs the length of the island, getting to restaurants, shops, mini golf, and more is a cinch. With its outdoor eateries and street performers, Times Square is especially worth a visit.

The best part of staying in Southern Dream Mansion, though, is spending time and making new memories with family and friends, all in a locale that offers a wealth of sights and experiences to enjoy. So treat yourself and your loved ones: Book your stay today.

The most amazing week of our lives!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of spending a week at this amazing house as we celebrated out 50th anniversary! The views were unbelievable! It truly is paradise! We cannot say enough about how beautifully it is decorated and everything is perfect for the guests. We had additional friends stay at Diamond Head Hotel and walk over to celebrate with us! The most beautiful home on Fort Myers Beach and perfect for family memories! It was the best week of our lives to have everyone with us in the perfect house with the perfect setting. The elevator made it easy for guests who have trouble with stairs!! The grandchildren loved shelling, and playing in the water. They did not want to leave!

We have stayed in Fort Myers for several years around Christmas and this was the best place. It was easy access to the store as well.
