About the property

Private Canal Front 4 Br Home w/Pool - Minutes Walk To The Beach & Times Square

PRIMO POOL AND PALMS ON FORT MYERS BEACH, IS A RECENTLY RENOVATED, 2100 SQ FT, CANAL FRONT, 4 BR, VACATION HOME THAT CAN SLEEP UP TO 12 AND IS LOCATED IN THE NORTH END'S TIMES SQUARE AREA.

If you want to be in the heart of the action, but yet be able to slip away quickly to enjoy some quiet time, this is the place! Primo Pool & Palms is located in the much desired Times Square District and is just a few minutes walk to the Beach, Times Square and Old San Carlos Blvd where you will find water sport rentals, beach shops and plenty of restaurants. Use the bikes to ride down to the beach, or its a very short walk. A beach cart and beach chairs are included that you can take down to the beach. Or you can just stay put and relax in the free form pool with tanning platform and attached spa surrounded by the tropically landscaped yard. You can also sit on the dock and look for the manatees and dolphins that occasionally visit the canals. Maybe a kayak cruise for two into the intercoastal to look for Dolphin, Manatee or bird watching. Or maybe just relax with a book in the hammock under the Royal Palm in the sand courtyard. If you're a boater, bring/rent a boat and tie up to the dock and be just minutes from the Gulf! You will feel that you have found a hidden Oasis at Primo Pool & Palms!

Look for Primo Pool and Palms on facebook to see additional pictures and updates.

The rental rate does include access to 6 bikes (no helmets available) and the tandem kayak, along with all of the other great amenities at Primo Pool & Palms. If you would like additional kayaks, there's a marina just across the intercostal that rents a tandem kayak for $39* for 4 hours. If you require additional bikes, you can rent them just down the street at Quicky Scooter for $18* per day or $45* for the week.

(*these are the current rates as of February, 2016)

The house sleeps 12 (10 in beds in bedrooms and 2 on daybed that converts to twin beds or can be connected to form a king size bed). The house can accommodate large families, or is easily shared by two families. It's location allows for easy on and off access to the Island and includes plenty of parking space.

The lay-out of this 4 bedroom home allows for plenty of privacy with an Upper Level that features 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Kitchen and Living Area. And a Lower Level that also features 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Kitchen and Living Area. For privacy, just close the entry doors that separate the levels or leave open for free flowing access to the entire house.

The Upper Level has a King sized Master Bedroom overlooking the pool and canal with its own access to the upper level deck; and a Queen sized Bedroom; In addition, there is a daybed in the living area that converts into either a king bed or can be used as two separate twin beds. The Lower Level has a Queen sized Master Bedroom looking out onto the pool and canal with its own private entrance to the lower lanai; and a Bedroom with Queen sized Bunk Beds that comfortably sleep 4 adults; In the living area, you will find a futon that folds down to a full size bed.

About Barb

Like so many people we have met while in Florida, we are from the Mid West. We live in Michigan. And like so many fellow Michiganders, we enjoy running away from the cold months that we experience here! And just LOVE Fort Myers Beach for its warm climate, beautiful beaches and laid back vibe!

Barb purchased this house in 2013

Why Barb chose Fort Myers Beach

Loved the Location...Close to everything! We felt it had the best of both worlds with the beach and a quaint town just a short walk away, Yet private and secluded when we want quiet time. We've spent many family vacations in Florida...Orlando, St Pete/Tampa, Clearwater, but we love being further south in Florida with the warmer temperatures that Fort Myers Beach offers during our cold Michigan Winters!

What makes this house unique

We have put a lot of time into renovating the house and yard...a lot of sweat and tears! And are so thrilled with the outcome, especially the pool and the landscaping - So love all of the palm trees! It's so hard each time we have to leave to go back home to Michigan, as we just love our little piece of paradise and are hoping you will love it too!

For grocery needs: there's a 7-Eleven at the end of the street; a Topps Market approximately 1 mile away and a Publix Market approximately 3 miles away. And a new Walmart just opened up recently on San Carlos Blvd shortly before crossing over Matanzas Bridge and is only 3.5 miles away and is on the Trolley Stops as is the other Markets. Or just take one of the 6 bikes (several have carts) to grab a few groceries. For fresh fish and shrimp, visit Trico Seafood Market...just a kayak ride across the Intercoastal! There's also a Farmer's Market located under Matanzas Pass Bridge on Friday mornings. There's another Farmers Market on Tuesdays at Santini Plaza at the South end of the Island. Farmers Markets are seasonal.

Restaurants/Bars: There are so many options all just a short walk or bike ride away! The Beached Whale at the corner of our Street is one of our favorites with views of the ocean from the upper deck. Some other favorites: Salty Crab where you can sit at picnic tables with your toes in the sand; Matanzas with choices for finer dining on lower level or casual on their upper deck. Both with beautiful views over the Intercostal. Doc Ford's just over the Causeway also has great Intercoastal views with a great menu and is walkable/bikeable. Pierside and Sunset Beach Grille are great locations for ocean views and to view the sunset. If you are in the mood for crab, you must try the garlic crab at SOB (Smokin Oyster Brewery) YUM! There are also numerous fun little places along the way to pop into...The DogHouse, also at the end of our street, has great hot dogs but also makes a great burger! Don't want to go out, and don't want to cook...order from Ray's Pizza. It's really good pizza and they deliver! Make sure to get the breadsticks! Tiki Bar and The Cottage are great for late night fun. So many great choices! Too many to list them all! You will want more than a week to try to get to them all!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 adults and 3 small children rented this home for a vacation week. It was all we could have asked for! A very short walk to the beach or Times Square. The pool area was beautiful. The house has 2 floors with 2 bedrooms and kitchen on each floor. My granddaughter loved the bunk beds which she insisted my wife & I share with her. The 2 washers & 2 dryers worked great with this large group. The house had everything we needed for a great vacation. Kayak, bicycles, beach toys, even a fishing pole. We can't wait to return!

Perfect Place for a Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

House was fantastic and stocked with just about everything you could possibly need. You are literally in the heart of FMB but feel like you are in your own little world. You can walk to just about anywhere or hang out at the incredible pool and back yard space. To top it off, the communication with Barb was top notch. I can't recommend this property enough. The Smith family will be back!

Barb has thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 2 other families and all of us are raving about this home. Wow Barb really has thought of everything! Well stocked kitchens, tons of towels for the beach and showering, beach chairs and enough beach toys to build an entire sand village! This is a great home to rent with children of any age, they will certainly not get bored. From the gorgeous private pool (with awesome night lighting-kids swam every night!) to a huge cabinet of bored games, bikes and a kayak!! I would highly recommend to stay in this home, we hope to return again soon!!

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Primo Pool and Palms is absolutely perfect!! The layout of the home is the perfect set up for 2 families and there is more than enough room for everyone. My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks! The first week we vacationed with his family and the second week my relatives came down. It was absolutely perfect! We spent the majority of our two weeks by the pool. More than enough pool toys for kiddos. The kayak got a lot of use and also the bikes that Barb provide came in handy! We used them daily. Not everyone wanted to ride a bike and they didn't have to,because the homes location is only a block from Times Square! So close, but yet the homes pool area is very private. Barb is an absolute sweetheart extremely helpful!! I'd highly recommend renting Primo Pool and Palms!! The home is perfect!! Thank you Barb!

Spring Break -- Family Style!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience at Primo Pools and Spa! The house and grounds were immaculate and contained everything we needed!

We had 11 people staying with us, 6 adults and 5 kids (ages 3-18). We ate most meals on the patio, deck, or by the pool. It's so beautiful, there was no reason to leave!! The kitchen is stocked with everything you need, including pancake griddle and blender. We also used the grill most nights while listening to music on the new Sonos speakers or watching the NCAA basketball tournament on the outdoor TV.

Everyday we took the short walk to the beach. Barb has stocked the shed with chairs and tons of sand toys that the kids loved. We also spent hours in the pool and hot tub. They loved the floaties that were left in the storage container under the deck. In the evenings we walked down to the pier to see the sunset over the ocean, check out the street performers, and get some ice cream!

We did go out to eat twice and would highly recommend both places. We went to the Yucatan and Nervous Nellies. Both were walkable, kid friendly, and had great food!

(One recommendation...get groceries before crossing the bridge to the island. There is a Walmart and Publix. The traffic on the island is pretty crazy so we drove only when necessary.)

Thanks for making our trip so wonderful Barb!!

Couldn't have asked for a better location and property. Very clean with all the amenities. Enjoyed relaxing by the pool during the day and hot tub at night. Easy walk to town and beach. Looking forward to next year.
