Overview

About the property

Island setting, 4 Bed 2.5 Bath Villa, 8 minutes stroll from the Fort Myers Beach

Island setting, 4 Bed 2.5 Bath Villa, 8 minutes stroll from the lovely Fort Myers Beach.

33 Foot Infinity Pool giving onto canal with direct sea access (dolphin and manatee visits).

Extensive outside south facing Patio/Deck/Pool area with barbecue.

Sleeps 8.

WiFi Internet Access throughout inside and out.

Welcome to our new place in the sun, the South West Florida sun that is.

The villa has 4 double bedrooms and so sleeps 8 easily with a queen bed sofa in the lounge increasing numbers to 10 if necessary.

It is situated on the narrow Fort Myers Beach (FMB) island and, being on the Gulf of Mexico side of Florida and with FMB being reasonably sheltered and shallow, the sea really is warm. In the hotter months of July and August it is almost like getting into a bath, beating even the Caribbean.

The villa is located on a no-through street in a quiet neighborhood. To get to the beach is an 8 minute saunter down to the end of the road and to Estero Boulevard. There you will find a beach-side bar & restaurant "Junkanoo on the Beach" (great deck giving right onto the beach, excellent fajitas!) or upstairs a slightly more upmarket seafood restaurant the "Fresh Catch Bistro" with stunning views over the sea and beach and for sunsets. The public beach access is just to the left of these restaurants (see photos). All the beach / sunset photos on this site are taken from the beach at this point directly across the road. We love the beach just here, there are no large hotels nearby and we have never had a case where we couldn't pick the spot we wanted to camp up for the day. For the beach we are all prepared for you – there are beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, floats, towels and a small caddie for you to transport it all. There are also bicycles as this is a lovely way to see the island.

If you prefer to relax by a pool, one of the main features of the villa is its private 33 foot infinity edge, south-facing swimming pool. This is at the rear of the property and gives onto the canal providing, all in all, a very secluded private area where you can really enjoy the outdoor Florida lifestyle. We have everything you need for the pool and deck with proper pool loungers, floats and pool toys for the kids. The pool itself has a shallow end of 3’6” increasing to around 4’6” at about two thirds along the pool. This is for relaxing and playing in but the pool does also have a proper deep end and is big enough to do laps in. At the shallow end there is a full width bench seat with 3 water jets which you can adjust to gently massage your lower back as you relax in the pool with a drink. At night the pool is equipped with multifunction underwater lighting which you can set to your taste for your night time dips.

If you hear a large splash from the canal it is NOT (as we first thought) one of the neighbors who has fallen in, but a dolphin. They regularly chase down fish into the canal at the front of the pool and they can get quite animated when they pounce on the cornered fish. If you miss them when they arrive, they HAVE to come back past to get back to the sea, usually around 10 minutes later – great photo opportunity.

Fort Myers Beach is a friendly laid-back area with all the usual Florida attractions. The villa itself is walking distance from restaurants, a 7/11 convenience store, church, children's playground, park, recreation center and more. You will also find LOTS more useful information on the villa and surrounding area in the reviews that previous guests have been kind enough to leave. Alternatively you can go to holidaylettings co uk and search for Home ID 495518 for the same information.

In the modern age of communication, the house is equipped with Wifi which works inside or outside the villa. There is also a telephone which you can use to call anywhere in the States (and even Canada) and which anyone can use to call you during your stay. This saves a lot on roaming bills when calling restaurants / golf courses etc.

No Smoking inside the villa please.

Everything we thought and more

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank Jon for allowing us to enjoy his lovely Villa. We had a great time, everything was so nice. The pool was warm, the beds were firm, and the view of the channel

was great, we seen dolphins almost every morning just about the same time, what a plus.

Can't wait to plan for my next B-day Vacation in Ft Myers Beach, and hopefully here at the Villa.

Thanks again Jon,

Merry Christmas to you and your family

Best Regards from Janet & Garry

Appreciate all that was done to ready the house for our stay after the Hurricane

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location providing convenient access to Lovers Key, the beach, Fort Myers boardwalk area with all the night life activities. We enjoyed all during our weeks stay. Restaurants, grocery stores or a half day fishing trip, are all only short distances away. The swimming pool provided a relaxing afternoon or evening after the day’s activities.

The pre-arrival information and activity list were appreciated, was a fun filled week.

Jon Thanks to you and your team for making it a great week.

The house was very spacious and perfect for our large family.

  • 5 of 5

Jon and Tracy were very helpful, attentive and polite to deal with as were all of the support staff we encountered along the way. The house is well appointed for living and for recreation. Location is excellent as it's easy to get to grocery stores, beaches and activities with a car. Our family loved the encounters with the local wildlife ( manatees, dolphins, shelling, fishing, lizards, alligators, sea life, etc.)

Great house, amazing pool, and would come back again

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a really great experience at the rental home. The house was large, clean, and in a great location. The owner Jon was very responsive to our questions during our planning. The pool was definitely a hit and we spent a lot of time outside in both the sun and shaded areas. When I was looking for a place to book I remember reading the reviews for many places. My main concern was finding something that the whole family would enjoy, and this house was it for us. If we are back in the area for our next vacation we would look to rent again.

Load of fun had by all!

  • 5 of 5

The 7 of us had a fabulous 2 week Christmas/New Year's holiday vacation at Jon's home! We experienced a truly beautiful, fun & memory making time together! Jon was extremely easy & professional to stay in contact with over the year of my planning. He was very helpful when I asked him of miscellaneous information and he got back to me with it after being in touch with his rental company, Kathy Nesbit.

The home is as advertised. The 7 of us adults being my husband, our son & girlfriend, our second son, our daughter & fiancée & myself had plenty of room to be together and spread out. The pool was our 'go to' place! The fantastic weather we had allowed for A LOT of pool time! Our son & gf are 'techies' and brought their equipment & set everything up on the left side of the pool area so that we could watch the Patriots play on Christmas Eve afternoon! How cool was that! Then that night after we had our scrumptious dinner we sat outside & watched 2 Christmas movies! It was like having our own little theatre. Loads of fun!

The master bed was very comfortable & everyone said that their beds were also comfy. The biking & walking in the warm air & sunshine was so enjoyable. FYI... Heavenly Biscuit & Mom's have mouth watering homemade cinnamon buns! Heavenly Biscuit is a cash only establishment. My husband & I had breakfast, one morning, in Times Sq. at the Yucatan restaurant & it was fresh food, delicious & great service. The 7 of us had dinner at Nervous Nellie's one night & were lucky to sit outside on the water. They have heaters outside in case there's a chill in the air, that make it so you're cozy but, not too hot. Everyone said that their meals were great! We ate in more than out and the kitchen was plenty big to make our Christmas Eve & Day dinners. The grill was used many times, also.

For anyone who loves pedicures, I had one at Esterra Spa with Anna & she was fabulous! A nice lady who gave me a very relaxing pedicure! My view was of palm trees & the ocean.

I highly recommend this property & look forward to renting it again! Fort Myers Beach & Jon's home now have given the 7 of us memories that we'll always hold close to our hearts!

Excellent Place to Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was pleasant and the property was as advertised. We did not encounter any problems and the instructions for operating everything were available and clearly stated. The owner was great to work with and responded to questions that we had. Directions for contact information was available if we had any concerns or needed assistance. Since I was familiar with the area I knew of many of the recommendations the owner had provided in relation to sites to visit, activities and places to eat. However if not familiar with the area, the owner provided detailed information concerning the area

Enjoyed our stay and would schedule again if staying at Fort Myers Beach. Would recommend to family and friends.
