We're on a quiet street where you'll be able to relax on the screened-in lanai and enjoy our great Southwest Florida weather.

*Please, no children under the age of 7 years.
You must be 25 years old or older to rent this unit.
We love our pets, and we want them with us as much as possible. Especially, if you're going to be away from them for a long period of time. I wouldn't want to leave our dog Murphy behind, and when you choose to stay with us, you may not have to leave your kids home, either! Please, no aggressive breeds.
The island of Fort Myers Beach is pet friendly. Dogs can be on the beach at any time of the day or evening; however, they must be leashed. But, if you head south toward Bonita Springs, just past Lover's Key State Park, you'll find Dog Beach. Dogs can run and play, leash free! So bring a ball or Frisbee, a chair and some water, and have a ball watching your pet make friends and frolic, on the beach and in the water! Of course, we have to make sure to pick up after our pets, here and everywhere else on the island. Mostly for the respect of other folks' property and also for respect of our beautiful beach town.
Maximum number of pets is two; but ask, I just might say yes!
DOGS MUST BE HOUSEBROKEN; CATS MUST BE LITTER TRAINED. IF CATS ARE NOT DECLAWED, PLEASE BRING SOMETHING ON WHICH THEY CAN SCRATCH. ALL PETS MUST BE WELL BEHAVED. WE MUST PICK UP AFTER OUR DOGS, ON THE BEACH AND EVERYWHERE ELSE. ECO-FRIENDLY BAGS ARE AVAILABLE AT ANY PUBLIC BEACH ACCESS, OR YOU CAN USE PLASTIC SHOPPING BAGS.
PLEASE EMAIL OR CALL FOR MORE INFORMATION.
There's a library on the island; fishing piers boat rentals; bicycle rentals; scooter rentals; and miniature golf is just a short drive or trolley ride away. There are many 18-hole golf courses in the area. There's even an 18-hole course right here on the island!
Remember to ask me about Captiva Cruises aboard the Lady Chadwick. She sails to many of the area's islands. You can go for lunch, shelling, a dolphin and wildlife excursion, or to unique shops. You can even enjoy a Cheeseburger in Paradise on Cabbage Key. It's said that's where Jimmy Buffett got his inspiration for that song! The Lady Chadwick departs from McCarthy's Marina on Captiva Island, and reservations are required.
In the unit, I have provided a notebook filled with area menus and things to do and see, such as: boat rentals, kayak rentals, The Key West Express, The Big "M" Gambling Boat, etc. There's way too much to mention here. You'll just have to come down and see for yourselves all the great things to do. This is truly a beautiful area, and we have one of the best beaches in Southwest Florida! So, let me hear from you!
Publix Supermarket and CVS Pharmacy are conveniently located on the island.
Nearby attractions include: Sanibel/Captiva Island, The Naples Zoo, The Everglades, Lover's Key State Park, where you'll be able to rent canoes or kayaks, or just walk the trails, or enjoy the beautiful beach there.
You can hop aboard the Key West Express for a beautiful day trip to Key West via the Gulf of Mexico. You can spend just the day, you can spend the night, or you can spend a few days and return at a later date. The Key West Express departs from Main Street, Fort Myers Beach.
If you're feeling lucky, you can hop aboard the Big "M" Casino boat. You can head out into the Gulf of Mexico for a day or evening of gambling and fun.
In November, Fort Myers Beach hosts its annual Sand Sculpting Contest. Go to You Tube. Once there, type in Fort Myers Beach Sand Sculpting Contest in the search area, and just pick which year you want to look at. They are absolutely beautiful and amazing.
Fort Myers Beach is a great vacation spot. There's lots to do, many great restaurants to choose from, and it's a great place to just lay back and relax on the beautiful beach. We're sure you'll have a great, relaxing vacation here!
Orlando and Tampa are both accessible from Fort Myers Beach. Orlando is about a four-hour drive and Tampa is about a two-and-a-half-hour drive. The Everglades is about an hour to an hour-and-a-half-hour drive. There you can hop aboard an airboat and whisk through the mangroves, with a guide, in hopes of spotting a gator. Airboats are easily boarded, so folks of all ages can take part in the adventure!

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Fort Myers Beach, Florida
A dream come true!
May 21, 2015
It was a real honor to be able to stay at such a comfortable house and with such AMAZING owners and neighbors. There was NOTHING missing at the place. Jill and Davis have thought of EVERYTHING that anyone could need. My Koko (my dog) was in heaven because in Miami we live in a very small one bedroom apartment and there he had a lot of space to run around. The beach is a few steps away, beautiful beach! In the early morning, when I would take Koko for a walk around the beach, we were always greeted by 4 dolphins that were just doing a show for us. This place is the closest thing to heaven! I really, really recommend it! Olivia, Peter and Koko

Wonderful owners - spacious duplex
October 27, 2014
Jill and family made us feel so welcome. Unit is very large with comfy bed and all the comforts of home. Our pups loved the lanai - they didn't want to come home! Very nice location mid island and easy walk to nice, estuary-free beach. Extremely fair pricing for all that was provided - we definitely will stay there again if we get the chance!
Fabulous Beach Home
June 28, 2013
Just had another fabulous 2wks at the beach w/Murphy & the gang. Jill & David are the most gracious hosts, catering to every need. Which are few & far between as their lovely & spacious home is already equipped with all the comforts of home. Our dog Mish loved the lanai for people watching. We are already looking forward to our stay next year.

Wonderful Vacation Home!
March 11, 2013
We couldn't be happier with our month long vacation with Dave, Jill, Murphy, and Christy. It feels like home from the first moment! Their accomadation is CLEAN, spacious, and VERY comfortable...located in a quiet residential area yet within walking distance to beautiful Ft. Meyers Beach. A spacious living area, fully equipped kitchen, 2 comfortable beds, full size bathrooms, and a wonderful lanai made our visit everything we wanted plus having our dog "Mallie" with us!! We loved the relaxing moments, friendly neighbors, GREAT restaurants, tourist spots to visit, and outstanding sunsets !! This is a great "home" away and you truly feel welcome and comfortable. We LOVE this place and look forward to next year's stay.
Best Vacaction Ever!
June 11, 2012
This was our first time renting Jill's house and we couldn't have been happier. We only stayed for a little over a week this time. The house had everything we needed, the beds are comfortable, the AC is cold, and best of all my dogs were welcomed. She even had little food/water bowls for them. It really made us feel great! The street is quiet, no noisy neighbors, very friendly people. The house is just a short walk from the best part of Fort Myers Beach-a good distance from the larger resorts and their crowds. We loved having the bikes to ride. Rode to restuarants as well as on the beach-was lots of fun! Our vacation doubled as a visit to my inlaws who reside in Fort Myers. Having our own space to stay just a short drive from them was definitely the most enjoyable way for us to visit. Jill and her husband are super nice, there when you need something, but not nosey. They really make you feel like friends right from the beginning. We loved this place so much that we have already booked it for the whole month of June next year! I can't wait to get back there!! Thanks again Jill for helping make our trip enjoyable and for giving me something to look forward to all year!
Best Vacation Ever!
April 1, 2012
Had the best relaxing & fun time here. Jill had the condo fully stocked with everything we needed. The place was immaculate and beautifully furnished. All the information regarding restaurants, activities and anything you needed was available and Jill was right next door with help anytime. Great owners and great condo. Tasha didnt want to leave, but we promised her we'll be back!

Best Vacation ever!
November 3, 2011
This place is the closest place to home you'll ever get away from home. I felt at home the moment I walked in. I really appreciated that EVERYTHING was already there, I didn't have to rush out & stock up on staples before I had a chance to settle in.I had the whole month to repalce what I used. A very nice area of Ft. Myers Beach, quiet and just a 2 or 3 minute walk & you are on the sand of the Gulf. I loved having the computer & Christy was very helpful with it if I had a problem. Jill & David very friendly & helpful and while not being nosey I knew they were a second away if I needed them. Murphy was very friendly as well and bid a warm good morning to Missy each morning as we walked. Overall, this was one of my best vacations & I have traveled alover the world. I wouold reccommend this area and especially this house to anyone wanting to have a beach vacation. Being able to have my little pet with me was also a plus & water & food bowls were furnished as well. Missy was very comforable also & loved laying on the front patio watching the other dogs walk by. Thanks Jill, David, Christy & Murphy for a great time. I will definately come back!
Paradise...in Fort Myers!

Fort Myers, FL, USA
Best Pet Friendly Property with every Amenity
August 26, 2011
This is our third summer visit to this home and we consider it our second home in Fort Myers. The owners next door are so helpful and considerate and have provided their rental with every thoughtful amenity from shampoo, bowls, and a bed for visiting dogs, to a new PC with internet and sound, a large screen living room TV, a DVD player, TVs in the bedrooms, and a full kitchen with modern appliances and all the cooking utensils imaginalbe to prepare any meal or hold even a party of 25, (which we actually held this 4th of July for a group of local friends). You have beach equipment (coolers, towels, unbrellas, etc.), an outdoor gas grill, a car/dog washing area, a private screened in porch with room for outside dining, a fully enclosed garage, and are only 100 yards from the ocean with a quick walk across the street. With a washer and dryer included, and a Publix supermarket less than a mile down the street, dozens of restaurants within walking and biking distance (free bikes provided) you couldn't ask for anything better. After staying a week the first year, 2 weeks the second we just stayed six weeks this year because we love this place and the owners. The rooms are full sized with comfy beds and full bathrooms attached. Furnishings are in good repair and clean. This is the rarest of finds on FM beach and for the price is phenominal considering everything you get. I can't say enough about what Jill and David have put into making this home the most desirable lodging on the beach! and their dog Murphy is a treasure.
Another perfect winter getaway

This was our second year at Jill & David's place during the month of February. It was a glorious month weather-wise, and as usual we were extremely comfortable in the very clean & well-equipped unit. We especially appreciate the updates and maintainence. This unit is lovingly cared for. Jill's sparkling personality add to the whole positive experience. We have booked for February next year!

Changed our life
March 7, 2011
Karen and I came down in December and stayed with Dave and Jill for the month of January. We were so impressed with Fort Myers Beach that we stayed another month. We have three dogs, one is a big dog(80+ pounds) and Dave and Jill were happy to have all of them stay with us. Jill is a fountain of information, things to see, places to go, best places to eat and never were we disappointed with her suggestions. The apartment was so clean and well stocked that we wanted for nothing. We would come back if we were not buying a place of our own, and Jill directed us to this place also.

This was Jim and my first trip to Florida, we drove from Ontario and were lucky enough to be able to stay for one month. Jill was great to work with prior to arriving - very customer service oriented and very friendly and helpful. When we drove up to "our home away from home" we were warmly welcomed by Jill and it was like we had known each other for years. It was very comfortable. The accommodations easily met and exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful month. From walking the gorgeous white beach to shopping to riding bikes all over the place (I had not been on a bike for years so this was both a challenge and a treat for me) and even time for Texas Hold'em Poker at the nearby Dog Racetrack. There is lots to do and we also enjoyed just sitting in the lanai and enjoying the warmth and calmness around us. We hope to return again next year - this experience was extremely positive. Great accommodations, great hosts - thanks Jill, David and Christie - and just a great spot to enjoy and relax.

My husband and our dog, Lacie, loved Jill and David's place. Felt like our own home. Jill and David live next door and we have become friends. Their dog Murphy is a Hoot, sunglasses and all. The unit is very very clean and updated. Love the open floor plan concept. We are all planning on staying next year for 7 weeks and we cannot wait to come back. Beautiful, quiet street. Two minute walk to the pristine beach. Everything you need for the beach is available to use. Jill and David are the best.

Jill and David were great. When they say everything is provided, everything is provided. They were helpful with restaurants and activities. The dogs had plenty of room too, which was a plus for us. We will definitely will be back!!!

It was great meet to meet Jill and David. As soon as we got there, they made us feel rigt at home. Everything exceeded our expectations. They provided everything we needed for the house and to make us feel very comfortale and enjoy our time there. We can't think of anything that could be better, the location was great, the beach was great, everything was perfect. Maia, our Golden Retriever, also loved staying there. As soon as we get a chance we will be back.

Jill, Dave, & Christy, are great. They are perfect host & hostess. The home is great: spotless, quiet, great location, everything is in top shape, spacious, all the amenities you would want or need. They have thought of everything to make your vacation as comfortable as possible. All you need is yourself & your personal items. The beach is beautiful, but if you get tired of the sand they have made arrangements for you to go to the Diamond Head Resort where you can lounge at the pool & enjoy food & drinks from the poolside resturant. We enjoyed it all. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation except it was only 7 days. We would have loved to stay longer. It was so relaxing & "homey". We could not have found a better place to stay. We are already planning to go back next year! We highly recommend this vacation home.

Our stay at Jill and David’s home was phenomenal! Seven days in their quiet, spacious, comfortable home made the stay feel even longer. Having all the amenities of home removed the stress of having to always get out of a hotel room and “do something”. We actually found ourselves lounging around the house or enjoying part of the day on the beautiful screened porch. Jill and David’s home is in quiet residential spot just steps from a really nice “low traffic” section of dog friendly Ft Myers beach. Canoe and nature trails can be found just blocks from the home and Lover’s Key State Park is only moments away by car or trolley. Best of all was having our dog Snubby along for the trip. She loved the beach and being someplace new with Mom and Dad. We can’t thank Jill and David enough for being one of the few places in Florida to offer pet friendly stays in Florida; it really is a treasured service. I highly recommend a stay at the Cofer home, you will not be disappointed.

Home Sweet Home!
July 5, 2009
Jill & Dave’s house is awesome! We enjoyed the short walks to the beautiful beach plus the house had enough room to relax & enjoy time together. We loved the wall of windows connecting to the lanai and brightening the great room. It was very convenient to have internet/computer/printer available to us to use. We stayed for 19 days in June – grandmother, mother, daughter and two dogs. It was wonderful to have a beach where we could actually play in the water with our dogs (leashed). For off leash fun a “dog beach” is just a very short drive (5 min.) south. Also there is a very small bay side park two street north where the dogs were also able to play in the water (off leash). This is a Historical site and great for picnics, too. Everyone (including the dogs) thoroughly enjoyed living at Jill & Dave’s place. Thank you for everything!

Home Away From Home
April 13, 2009
We could not have asked for a better place to bring our two dogs for their first beach experience. Besides the wonderful beach as well as all the area has to offer, the rental unit was absolutely perfect. Jill, David & Christy were wonderful hosts. Very much like the other reviews mention, if you need anything, Jill is always there to help. My wife & dogs will definetly be returning.
April 1, 2009
It's hard to know where to begin. The home is spacious/quiet/comfortable, all appliances/kitchen utensils provided, hi speed internet, large screened in lanai, 2 minute walk to the beach, very pet friendly. We felt welcomed by the owners from the first minute we entered - any question/concerns were responded to immediately!!! Newly painted/tiled, cathedral ceilings, plenty of closet space, spacious bedrooms/bathrooms, new washer/dryer - literally all the comforts of home. It was so hard to leave after such a serene vacation - we know that we have made some new friends and that we will continue to keep in touch. I would not hesitate to recommend this property/these owners to anyone.

Tom and I are still here and we love it! Normally when you find a place on the net that looks great, when you get there it is not quite as expected. Jill & Dave's place greatly exceeded our expectations. It is clean, airy, bright with a full wall of sliding glass windows that open onto the lanai making one big room. Bedrooms and bathrooms are big and comfortable. Even "Babe" the cat approves. Jill provides all the necessities, including washing & cleaning supplies. Centrally located with grocery store and restaurants near by and oh that beach! The only thing that we regret right now is that we are leaveing at the end of the month. We highly recommend this home and will miss it and the owners, Jill and Dave. We will definitely be back. Thanks for having the best rental steps from the beach.
Overall Great Time-Great Stay!
January 31, 2009
We stayed over the Xmas Holiday 2008 for 10 days and brought our dog, too!The home was cheerful, clean, spacious and beachy located off the dog friendly beach by a short walk.The home is equipped with everything you could need including a beach stroller equipped with chairs and basket to haul your goodies! I especially enjoyed the vaulted ceilings and wall of patio doors that open to the screened lanai.The owners are real kind and a great source for area info, they were right on with dining recommendations, Fish House and Fish Monger, we got great food at both places! Thanks again Jill and David for your hospitality! Kelly McCormack & Dan Christl
YOU WILL LOVE YOUR VACATION ON FORT MYERS BEACH SO MUCH, YOU WON'T WANT TO LEAVE!
