Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

5 B/R, 3 full baths, Sleeps 10, (10 MAX)

Beach Access home at Fort Myers Beach, Florida. (just 4 minute walk to Ocean Access #16), across the street.

Sleeps 10, 5 bedrooms, +2 children on sofa sleepers, under 75 lbs. $300 PER PERSON PLUS TAX for every person over 10.

Located in a more sedate family atmosphere, this lovely vacation getaway has all the amenities and is just a short walk (4 minutes.) down the street and around the corner to the beach or just up the road to some good food and entertainment.

This stilt home comes with all the comforts and conveniences of some of the best resorts available in Florida. The full kitchen has every appliance needed along with an outdoor dining area on upstairs deck and another outdoor bar and snack area downstairs near the pool.

You will love the heated pool and spa in your own little gated paradise. It is fully equipped for family enjoyment or just that quiet time needed to get away for a bit.

Downstairs in the home is one Queen bedroom with full bath and the family room has a pool table with 2 couches- no sofa beds and a 42' Flat screen television for fun times.

Sorry, but we do not allow any sleeping on couches downstairs.

Upstairs there is 1 King bedroom with flat screen and 3 Queen bedrooms, plus dining room, kitchen and living room which has 2 Queen sofa beds (CHILDREN under 75# ONLY ON SOFA BEDS NO EXCEPTIONS) plus a 42' flat screen television plus WI-FI.

'Home-4632 is the icon on your I phones. The password will be available in the home upon arrival.

The entire property is fenced with 2 gates, so if you have children, you will not have to worry about them wandering off.

Fort Myers Beach is actually a part of Lee County's Estero Island, a narrow strip of land that is one mile wide at its widest point. Though, it is best known for its near perfect climate, abundant sandy beaches and ideal location for enjoying a wide range of water sports, this city offers much more than just a beach break for the vacationer.

The island has two golf courses and has abundant shopping and dining restaurants and Sports Bars for Football and Baseball fans. Times Square is the hub of shopping, dining, and sports bars on the beach.

This is the place to go if you are interested in nature as there are many birds living on the beach and in the mangroves.

This is also a great spot for shelling, boating, kayaking, bicycling, jet skiing, parasailing, swimming and of course, just taking a nap and getting a tan.

You can rent equipment right there on Estero Blvd. At Ocean Access 16, where you go over to the beach, walk left and the rental place is on the beach.

There is a Publix Grocery within 1/2 mile, a library, marina, small restaurants, and the trolley stop is beside the ocean access #16 which you can ride up and down Estero Blvd. on for a minimal fee.

Ride down to Lover's Key one day - you will thoroughly enjoy the trip. You can catch a ride on the trolley.

Since Estero Island is very narrow, you can walk to the back bay and there are many uninhabited keys within the bay that play host to hundreds of different species of birds, plants and mammals.

We offer a beach cooler that you can pull to carry your drinks/food to the beach, also some beach chairs. If you need more lounge chairs at the beach, there is a rental place right there on the beach at Ocean Access 16.

Please take only beach chairs provided to ocean, as they rust very quickly. Also please hose off with fresh water when you return to the rental home. Thank you.

This rental is for Families only, NO COLLEGE STUDENTS, don't even ask. You will be asked to leave if we find that you arranged a rental, and NO refunds will be given.

Excellent Location - Excellent Property - Excellent Vacation!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

After the Hurricane had barely missed this location just 5 weeks prior to our visit we were a little concerned about state of the property and if everything in the area would be ok. The owner Gloria was terrific to communicate with and she laid our fears to rest with updated pictures of the pool and yard area and the house before we got there.

We had (3) generations of the Family with us - Parents, Kids (2 sets and spouses) and Grand Kids (best part) totalling (9) people - the house was plenty big - (5) bedrooms and (3) bath is extremely accurate - kitchen and dining room were more than sufficient for all of us and the Publix down the road (1/2 mile at most) was perfect for anything we needed.

The pool was by the far the biggest hit of the holiday - with at least 6 hours a day spent in there - it was wonderful - clean and nice size. The hot tub/spa to side was used by the kids more than the adults but enjoyed by all.

The location was perfect - a block off of busy Estero (which was under construction but caused no issues) meant it was nice and quiet and yet only a 2 minute walk to the beach - Access 16 is literally at end of the road.

We couldn't have asked for a better holiday with our big family and we hope to repeat it annually from this point forward.

Overall a marvelous place, perfectly located

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice and we enjoyed our 2 weeks very much. To get the fifth star we recommend to fix a roof to give a shadow on the terrace which got very hot floor during the afternoond and somewhere to hang your laundry to dry.

Very short distance to the fantastic beach with outstanding sand.

Still we recommend this Dream House and would love to come back another time

Very nice!!

Great location to beach, very short walk. Nice living arrangements with a nice kitchen. Bottom living level is only accessible from outside stairways. Pool & hot tub are excellent. Quite a drive to downtown area, so plan accordingly - traffic is very busy!!

True to its Pictures and Description

  • 5 of 5

First off - If you are looking for a trustworthy and responsive property owner, Gloria is your woman. We had many questions about the property which Gloria always answered promptly. (Both before and during our stay)

Now to get to the house: WOW. The outdoor living space is simply perfect for a beach vacation. We had two young children who absolutely loved the pool and spa. The patio area provided ample space for cornhole and for 6 adults to lounge comfortably.

The house, ideal set up. CLEAN, well maintained and up to date fixtures and finishes. The property provides beach towels, bath towels and linens and a lot of the smaller travel items. Again - so clean (and that says a lot because I am weird when it comes to sharing that stuff). The kitchen table and living room arrangements comfortably fit 8 of us. I think if we had any more adukts then extra seating would be needed.

The house is off of a quiet street one block to the beach which was perfect for our group because we had a 6yo and a 2yo. They could easily make the short walk to the beach. The beach was clean and ocean full of living sand dollars. We got a kick out of that the first day.

Overall: if you are looking for a nice place to stay in FMB then definitely consider this property. Thank you, Gloria!

Wonderful Beach Home

  • 4 of 5

Everything is accurate as described in the listing. Plenty of room for everyone, all the amenities of home, and the location to the beach. Property is clean and neat, but could use some upgrades. Deck outside has some rough spots where you could get some splinters and the couches definitely look worn. The kitchen has everything you need to cook any meal even a mixer if you need it. We like to use the grill a lot and luckily we did burgers the first night because the grill outside cooks very unevenly ( which would have been a shame if we had steak like we planned). The pool and hot tub were great and there are plenty of floats and pool toys in the garage as well as chairs, coolers and umbrellas for the beach. Lots of towels, sheets, and pillows in all the closets. Beach access is a 4 minute walk. We saw the sunset every night and dolphins in the morning. Doc Ford's Rum bar and Grille has a great scallop special on Monday nights if you like seafood. We had no issues while we were there, but the owner, Gloria was prompt and efficient in getting back to me before our trip! Great vacation on the west side of town
