About Donna Chapman

We purchased this home and renovated and furnished it like we would want to live there. We are mid westerners, but have lived in Florida for over 40 years and in the Veranda since 2013. We love it here and have been pleased to have met so many like- minded friends and neighbors. We think you will find our community to be very comfortable and will feel right at home here in the Verandah.

Donna Chapman purchased this house in 2014

Why Donna Chapman chose Fort Myers

The Verandah is a "green" gated community conveniently located along the meandering Orange River, just a few miles east of I-75 on S.R. 80. It offers 125 acres of wetlands, 1,000 acres of glorious open spaces, 8 miles of nature and fitness trails, and two 18-hole golf courses: Whispering Oaks was designed by Jack Nicklaus and Old Orange designed by Bob Cupp. Whether you're looking to simply relax and enjoy the natural beauty, or pursue more active outdoor challenges like tennis or kayaking, you will love it here at the Verandah.

What makes this house unique

You won't have to leave the property to go shopping as the Verandah Plaza offers daily conveniences such as Publix, Walgreens, restaurants, salons, banks, doctors offices and laundry. The historic downtown area called the River District is just 15 minutes away and offers monthly art walks and music walks, sidewalk cafes, gourmet restaurants, charming boutiques, and performing arts halls. Every February, the River District hosts Fort Myers Art Fest, drawing artists from around the country. If you're a baseball fan, The Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins train here every Spring. For boaters, Sweetwater Landing, a public marina with deepwater boat access is only minutes away. It can accommodate wet storage boats up to 100 feet and dry storage for craft up to 30 feet.

January Visit

  • 5 of 5

This house in Verandah was perfect in so many ways: beautiful décor, fully equipped kitchen, lovely lanai, and a great grill. The landscaping made the outside as appealing as the inside. Perhaps most importantly, it was exceptionally clean. A great home-away-from-home!

Long Term Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Verandah started in July, 2016. We were considering purchasing a home in the community, so we figured this was a good way to “try it out”. We have met some great people here. We enjoy the lush landscaping, miles of biking trails and going to the community pool.

The house is beautiful and clean. It includes everything you need. Just bring your suitcase. We enjoyed spending time on the lanai which has a preserve view.

We liked the close proximity to Publix and there is easy access to Interstate 75. If you are looking for a vacation rental, this is definitely a home you should consider. We loved it here, so we ended up buying in the community.

Winter season 2016

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful house during the winter of 2016. When you walk in you will see a nice lanai with a Webber grill. The next thing you will notice is a beautiful natural area, so you can sit on the lanai and watch the birds. The house is well furnished and the kitchen is well equipped. I liked the office in the front of the house in which I could get away and read. The house has beautiful landscaping which includes an extra wide yard on the left side of the house. You will enjoy meeting the neighbors and they have a great cookout during season for all including renters. Finally, the owners have a house in Verandah so if you need to discuss an issue they will come by immediately to look at the problem. The owners are great people and you will enjoy meeting them.
