Description of the Fort Myers Beach vacation home rental
Minimum Age of Adults: 28
We do not allow pets. Put your worries away and spend the winter at our beach house in beautiful Ft. Myers Beach, Florida and relax in the heated pool and spa. If you are planning a spring or summer get-away take advantage of the reduced rates at Palmetto Palms. Our beach house is located one block from the beach and has a direct public beach access at the end of the street. It is literally a five minute or less walk to beach access #16, but public parking is also available if you prefer to drive. It has a partial ocean view from the deck.There are two king beds and one queen bed, with a queen sofa couch in the den. It is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood. If you prefer to relax by the pool, please enjoy our caged heated pool and spa. The entire pool, deck, and approximately 600 square feet of covered/screened outside living area is included in the caged area that includes plenty of seating and tables so that you can relax without any pesky bugs spoiling your precious vacation time. Our house is conveniently located in the middle of the island about a mile from the Publix grocery store and a mile from Santini Plaza and marina, which has several shops, restaurants, bars, ice cream shop, post office, and boat rentals.
Amenities include sun decks on the front and back (east & west views), gas grill, floaties for the pool, sand chairs, beach cart, 2 bikes, ceiling fans in every room, wireless internet access, all bedding, towels, dinnerware and utensils. A full size washer and dryer are included in the house. A new refrigerator with ice-maker, a Keuric coffee maker, and a refrigerator in the lanai area next to the pool. The AC/Heating system was replaced in July 2014. We also just upgraded to 3 king beds.

Spring Vacation

March 23, 2015

Sometimes I need a vacation from my vacation and return more tired than rested. Not the case here, this area, this house, and the experience well worth the time. This past Christmas we told our grown children we did not want anything but time for Christmas so we booked this beach house and spent 7 days relaxing and reconnecting. Bob and Vicki you have an amazing home, we rented a car but used the Trolly and the bikes the majority of the time. Although I still needed to check in with work while gone the internet access made this possible. I so appreciate the notebook with how to work everything in the home and even sightseeing pamphlets. We had fresh Grouper from a Deep Sea fishing trip the men went to one day. We will be back. Thanks again!

Perfect Family Vacation Home

March 9, 2015

We stayed at this property February 28 thru March 7th and had a wonderful time. The house was very clean and beautifully maintained. The location was perfect - it was quiet at night and a short walk to the beach and close to the grocery store. Our whole family loved the lanai and pool area. We had an issue with the pool pump, but the owners were very easy to get a hold of and had it fixed as soon as possible. The house was large enough for five adults and two kids without any issues. We loved the area - my parents have been coming here for years and decided to bring us along this year - we've fallen in love with the area and can't wait to come back again!

Even better than expected

January 22, 2015

As a travel agent, I have stayed all over in hotels and rental homes and tend to be very picky about my accommodations. This beach house exceeded our expectations. The location was perfect on Ft. Myers beach, the house was immaculate, designed beautifully and had everything we could need. The pool and hot tub were exactly what we needed after a long day! Bob was very responsive, friendly and easily accessible. A++++ highly recommend for your Ft. Myers vacation and I will be referring clients here!

Pleasant Stay

Home is as described. Nice to stay in a home that is kept as a home and not just a rental - very clean and everything works well. 3 minute walk to the beach. Great value and the owners are very helpful.

Absolutely lovely

November 6, 2014

The house was very lovely. Our two children age 2 & 7 had a wonderful time. The house was child friendly. We loved the extra tv room for the kids to hang out in. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The washer and dryer, dishwasher, and all the kitchen items we could need. I was so glad we had a crock pot and two different coffee pots. The double head shower in the master bedroom was fantastic. The area near the pool is large and very nice to hang out in. The extra space is so nice. The pool and hot tub were great and worked great. The owners were very kind and helpful. Everything about the house was about expectations.

Awesome Place

November 3, 2014

We had 2 families staying in this beach property and I have been coming down to Fort Myers for 6 years and I would have to say this is the best place we have stayed in. It had everything we could ask for. The pool and hot tub were great all the rooms were perfect even without tvs in them. Large living room and dining room. The den area has a pull out bed which worked great. The owner of this property was awesome as well, anything we needed we could call or text and he helped us out. I would recommend anyone to stay here. Oh and the beach is only a short walk away. Couldn't ask for more.

My husband and I stayed for the month of August. We had family visit us each week. The house and pool area is wonderful for entertaining. I live in the pool and spa. The beach was close by, however we are beach lovers and chose to drive to 5 near by beaches so we could experience different beaches. Each night though we would take our beach chair to beach #16 and watch the sunsets. The house was very, very clean and slept ever one comfortably.

Great Beach House!!!

July 1, 2014

We rented the Beach House for our annual girls getaway, we were very impressed with the house very nicely decorated, spacious, clean and comfortable, very nice neighborhood. The Pool and Spa with the screened Lanai was great for relaxing, drinks by the Pool and honestly as much as I Love the Beach most of our time was spent relaxing in the Pool, Spa and Screened Lanai, but it was nice to have the Beach just a 5 min. or less walk away if you want to take a swim, sun on the beach, walk or enjoy the beautiful sunset. The Beach Trolley was great only 50 cents to ride which picks you up at the corner of the main road along the beach where you cross to go to the beach, it is great if you want to go out for the evening and have a few drinks and not have to drive, we took the Trolley to Times Square where there is great shopping, restaurants, bars with live music and the Pier is right there which is great for watching the Sunset. Publix was vey close just a few minutes away. We highly recommend this house, Bob Matthews was a pleasure to deal with, he made the whole rental process a very easy comfortable transaction, we inquired if there was a Crock Pot at the house, he replied there is not but there will be one there when you get there, he made us feel like his home was our home while we were there. I highly recommend this Beach House you can not go wrong. Thank you Mr. Matthews.

Owner's reply:

Fabulous Winter Getaway

March 3, 2014

We traveled with adult children, spouses, and a grandchild. This home met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. The three bedrooms and additional den made it possible for all to have their own space.The cleanliness standard is excellent and the decor is very comfortable. The outdoor space was a great assett to our vacation. I would recommend this home to anybody, and return anytime. If I were to wish for anything more, it would be an additional bathroom, but we certainly could do with the two we had.

Perfect House

February 26, 2014

We loved all the amenities that this house has to offer - pool, spa, lanai with tiki bar, front and back balconies, multiple bedrooms, kitchen, indoor sitting areas, desirable location on the island, and easy access to the beach. We will definitely stay here again! The house was the "center" of our awesome vacation.

Thanksgiving Beach Holiday

December 12, 2013

We arrived at the beach house to find a piece of paradise! The home was cozy and had everything we needed for our holiday. The pool and hot tub were very inviting and just around the corner was the beach. It was nice to have all these ammenties at our fingertips. The house also included: beach towels, chairs and cart. This home is in a great location, toward the southern end of the island where the traffic is not as congested. We were also able to access the American Sandsculpting Championships by walking about 10 minutes down the beach which made it even better. If you are looking for a relaxing stay in a comfortable home where the sun is usually shining and the temps are generally in te 80's this is it! Coffee on the deck, cocktails by the pool and the most beautiful sunsets, like I said a piece of paradise!

Exceeded our expectations

November 18, 2013

We had the opportunity to rent a house in Ft. Myers Beach from Mr. Matthews at 5536 Palmetto St. This was my first time renting a beach house and couldn't ask for a better experience. Mr. Matthews made it easy from the very beginning. He was very personable and made us feel comfortable with the entire transaction. The house is very well kept and nicely decorated. In fact, it exceeded our expectations with all the amenities that are included. The pool and jacuzzi are a great addition, plus the large screened in patio and lanai made the time spent outdoors very enjoyable. I highly recommend Mr. Matthews if you are looking for a great experience renting a house on Ft. Myers Beach.

Nice Vacation

April 21, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at this vacation rental. We didn't have any issues with the rental property during our stay. Just as stated, the beach is across the street from the house and is not crowded with tourists. The house is on a quiet street with friendly neighbors. The house is clean and nicely furnished. The beach cart and beach chairs were great to have at the house. It made getting to the beach quite easy. The heated pool and hot tub were also wonderful features of the house. Being able to control the hot tub with a remote was great! This a perfect place to stay if you want to get away to Ft. Myers Beach to relax and have some fun.

Close to the beach, wonderful hot tub & pool!

March 13, 2013

This house was perfect for our family spring break getaway. Even though the weather was a bit cooler early in the week, the hot tub provided a wonderful option to enjoy the Florida sunshine. As the weather warmed up throughout the week, we enjoyed the pool and the beach everyday, which was a very short walk away (2 blocks!). The beach was beautiful, and not crowded at all. The close proximity to the Publix was also very handy. The house was roomy and comfortable. Bob, the owner, was easy to work with and super accommodating. Cynthia, who coordinated entry and house cleaning, was fabulous too! If we return to Ft. Myers Beach, we would definitely rent here again!

clean,bright with a well equipped kitchen. the heated pool was wonderful. being so near the beach we could go for long walks and see the sunsets without having to take our car. the restaurants were 1st class and only a short drive from our rental. We had to adjust to the traffic tie ups at peak times of the day(unavoidable I was told for this time of the year), but all in all we were very pleased with our accommodations.
