Overview

About the property

3 Large Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Heated Pool/Hot Tub, Dock, Wi-Fi

Our 3-bedroom vacation home is situated in the beautiful Town & River neighbourhood which is centrally located to all that you need for a delightful vacation in south-west Florida. This canal front home is only four houses from the Caloosahatchie River, minutes to the Gulf of Mexico. It is extremely quiet and peaceful here.

The backyard faces south and catches the sun all day. Enjoy the Gulf breezes while sun bathing or sit in the shade of the patio or palm trees. You will also frequently see dolphins swimming in the canal.

This 2800 sq ft bungalow has three large bedrooms; 1 King in the Master with en-suite bathroom & walk-in closet, 1 King & sofa bed in one guest room, and 2 Queen beds in second guest room. Guest rooms have double closets and are joined by a shared bathroom. There is a third bathroom with a shower off the front hall.

This is an open concept living space, with a 65" flat screen with surround sound in the main living area. There is Wi-Fi throughout the house.

There is a large dock so bring your boat or rent one nearby. The yard is fenced to keep the little ones from the water's edge. BBQ available. The pool is heated and includes a hot tub as well as a shallow wading area.. A child safety fence is available, if needed.

It's a short walk to McGregor Blvd where there are good restaurants. A short drive takes you to all the stores you'll need (including Costco), the beaches (Fort Myers Beach/Sanibel), downtown River Walk, Barbara Mann Center for the Performing Arts and many golf courses. We chose this area carefully, and trust you will find it convenient and very relaxing.

This house is our new holiday home, and as such, we have tried to furnish it the way we would enjoy it.

About Suzy Wilkinson

We are a newly retired couple from Toronto, Canada who have traveled to Florida over the years to golf and escape our long winters. We enjoy the outdoors on the shores of Georgian Bay in the summer and wanted a warm and sunny winter home.

Suzy Wilkinson purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Suzy Wilkinson chose Fort Myers

We wanted to be on the calmer Gulf Coast with a water view and access for boating. We are golfers and boaters, who also enjoy theatre, sports and nature. All are close by. After searching in the Naples/Fort Myers area, we were drawn to this lovely neighbourhood for its location and convenience. As soon as we drove down this street, we wanted to be here.

What makes this bungalow unique

This house sits close to the Caloosahatchie River with a view that provides peace and tranquility when sitting on the patio or dock. There is easy access to the Gulf waters for boating. While sitting in the hot tub/pool, the canal view and sunsets are lovely. All rooms in the house are quite spacious and the rear yard is fenced in for children.

Amazing place. Amazing owners to deal with.

  • 5 of 5

What a awesome place to call home for a week. Suzie and her husband always responded in a very timely manner. The house is very spacious and very clean. My favorite part though was just sitting by the canal everyday looking for the dolphins that come by nearly everyday. We had 3 of them visit us 5 out of the 7 days we were there. If you are anywhere near Ft Meyers I would highly recommend this house.

Fabulous waterfront home - a true gem with Dolphins

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent Christmas in Fort Myers and were fortunate enough to find this gem. We have rented a lot of homes over the years and this one was one of the best we have stayed in - it had everything we could have asked for and more! The bedrooms were large and beautifully furnished - there was plenty of privacy and lots of space for clothes and personal items. The bathrooms were large and very clean. The kitchen, dining and living room areas were spacious and open - perfect for our family. We prepared and enjoyed long family meals together and watched holiday movies in the evenings. We had wonderful, warm weather for the duration of our stay, so we really made use of the heated pool, hot tub and patio area. And, yes, we actually saw dolphins swimming up and down the canal that lines the backyard. The location is great, with Sanibel and Captiva Islands a short drive away, The Shoppes at Bell Tower with its many restaurants, a movie theater and a Fresh Market are also quite close. Thank you for sharing your lovely home. We will keep our fingers crossed that it will be available the next time we travel as a family to South West Florida.

Lovely Clean Home

Suzy was so easy to communicate with for the booking. The house was spotless and had every amenity you would need. The house is landscaped beautifully. Great quiet, peaceful community. There was nothing more we could have asked for.

Clean, spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this beautiful home. It is very clean and relaxing in a very nice neighborhood.

The kitchen is great and has everything you need including the space to welcome visitors and relax comfortably.

The bedrooms are spacious and so cozy.

The beds were especially big and comfortable to curl up in .

We spent a lot of time outside as there is a nice pool and hot tub with plenty of restful lounges and chairs to unwind in.

My daughter who is 8 was thrilled as were we to have the dolphins visit numerous times throughout the day. What a treat that was.

It was so nice to be able to toss the fishing poles in off the dock as well.

The owners are great communicators and all questions you may have are always answered promptly and courteously.

All in all this warm and inviting home is everything you need for a comfortable stay and we will surely be back .
