Tess Koster purchased this house in 2011

Why Tess Koster chose Fort Myers Beach

Pictures do not do this property justice! The privacy and serenity are abundant are close enough to walk everywhere and far enough away, one block, to sit by the pool or at the Tiki bar and feel as if you are on a private island.

What makes this house unique

Floating in the pool and watching the boats in the canal go by is magical! The heated pool will help you forget the blustery winter weather you left behind. Enjoy a book in one of the four screened in porches. The view from the upstairs two porches is breathtaking! Enjoy a cocktail at the authentic, fully equipped, Tiki Bar. Once you have relaxed take the five minute walk to Times Square and visit our tropical themed shoppes. Prices are reasonable everywhere on the beach. Our restaurants boast many specials. If you don't eat out enjoy the well equipped kitchen or cook on the Weber grill at Paradise Cove. Welcome to all our guests!

Our week at Paradise Cove (23 -28 August 2017)

  • 3 of 5

* Arrived on a dreary day (weather) but we were going to make the best of our stay since we were there for our daughters destination wedding

* This home is not for anyone that has personnel in the party unable to climb stairs

* The home was very clean and has plenty of space with three master bedrooms, but there is no inside access from the bottom portion of the house to the upper portion of the house, to get upstairs you must climb the stairs on the outside of the house, which is not good during inclement weather.

* The two upstairs balconies were nice to sit in when the rain was not being blown in, but for our time there, this was an everyday occurrence, so most of the time we had the weather guards in place to prevent water from getting onto the balconies.

* There are a few places that have water damage and need to be replaced and the Tiki Hut needs to have a new top placed on it as it has gapping holes in the roof area.

* The pool area was nice and the pool is maintained by a specialists that comes in every week to maintain it.

* Plenty of space to park vehicles in front of the house and off the road.

* The area was very quiet and only one block from the downtown tourist area. We walked there everyday and walked to the Pier. We enjoyed most of the restaurants there as we tried to eat at as many as we could and it was nice they were all within walking distance.

* The beds were nice and comfy and the water pressure for the showers was very strong.

* Large living room in the upstairs and in the downstairs areas, but most of our time there we spent in the kitchen/dining room area or across the lagoon with the wedding party.

* Overall, Paradise Cove was accommodating for our needs and we thank Tess for allowing us to come into her home for the week

Wonderful home for a relaxing, wonderful vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year my family has stayed here and I can not say enough great things about it. It is a large home with a great pool, tiki hut, and dock. My son caught 2 nurse sharks off the dock and we saw the manatee swim by almost every day! We were able to easily dock our boat and it's a short drive to get to the gulf for some fishing. We enjoyed swimming and hanging out in the fun yard everyday. Then in the evening we took a short walk to time square and had dinner, ice cream and watched the most amazing sunsets on the beach! We definitely plan on returning to Fort Myers Beach and will definitely stay here again!!

Of course see the main attractions which are our wide pristine white sand beach, Times Square and the Pier, all within walking distance. Stroll through the shoppes located around Times Square. Paradise Cove is on a canal allowing for kayak, canoe or jet ski rentals. Be sure and try your luck fishing the canal or the pier where they rent fishing poles. Hike to the top of the bridge for a breathtaking view of the Golf, Bay, and the largest shrimping fleet in Florida. There is ample parking in the driveway for all your vehicles. Paradise cove is walking distance to stores, spa's bars and restaurants. Just down Estero Blvd is Bay Oaks Recreation Center where you will find Pickle Ball, Basket Ball, weight lifting, exercise center, softball, playground, pool with water slides, and a kiddie pool. Behind Bay Oaks is a city owned walking path with boardwalks through the mangroves and docks on the bay for the hiker in you. Just past Bay Oaks on Connecticut Ave, is the Mound House, a museum and the oldest Beach house on the island located on an old Indian mound. Bikes, scooters, motorcycles, jet skies, sail boats, para sailing, sail boats, kayaks, paddle boats, boogie boards, fishing poles and more can be rented just blocks away from Paradise Cove. For a longer hike or a short $.75 trolley ride, the northern most tip of the island is a sea turtle and wildlife sanctuary called Bowditch Park. The trolley covers the whole island from Bowditch Park to Lovers Key and SanCarlos Blvd, where the two mini golf courses are located for only $.75 a ride. It runs every 20 minutes during season. There is a golf course and movie theater half way down the island. Miramar Outlet Mall is located on Summerlin. Take the trolley ($.75) to Summerlin, get off and connect with bus #50 ($1.50) eastbound, it will head west first and drop you off at the mall before it head eastbound to the airport. Go to for more info. For a cheep way to go out on the ocean for a day, take the Big M Casino Boat located 1 block from Paradise Cove. You don't have to be a gamble to enjoy the views of the island on the trip. You may see dolphins and sea turtles. the buffet is excellent. The trip cost $10 the first time and is free after that. To the south, the town of Naples has dog racing. In the town of Fort Myers there is a Murder Mystery Train and Zoomers amusement park. Be sure and tour the Thomas Eddison home in Fort Myers. Take a deep sea fishing trip with one of the charters just across the bridge. Rent a pontoon for a day from one of the local marina's. See baseball's training camps with the Twins, Red Sox and more. On the beach, just south of the pier, the new city park has volley ball courts, rest rooms, and a nice picnic area.
