SAND SCULPTING AT THE BEACH - Thanksgiving Week
|Per week:||$1,000 - $2,495|
|Per month:||$2,500 - $7,250|
4 bedroom, 3 bath waterfront pool home with heated pool. Desirable island location, one block from beach. On a canal with dock. Wi-Fi and Hi Def TV with Netflix..
This large, waterfront home is located just steps from the white sugar sand beaches of Fort Myers Beach. The home is very private and beautifully remodeled with two custom fireplaces and vaulted ceilings. The large open gourmet kitchen has everything you will need plus a breakfast bar and glass sliders to the pool area! We offer a huge heated pool and boat dock for your enjoyment. Fish from the dock and bring your kayak or jet ski and use our floating jet ski dock.
Only a 5 minute walk to the most wonderful sandy white beach. You don't need a rental car, as you are close enough to walk to beach and restaurants, shopping and night life while enjoying our quiet neighborhood. There is a trolley system on the beach on which you can ride up and down the 7 mile island, out to Lovers Key and into the city of Fort Myers.
The food, fun and shopping at Times Square is just over a mile away - close enough to visit easily and far enough away to avoid the noise. You will find the public fishing pier there, as well as many shops, restaurants, and bars. The beautiful white sand beaches of Fort Myers Beach are one short block from the house, as is a convenience store and small gym; the town recreation center, with tennis courts and a water park with a kid play area, the library, a grocery store, a liquor store, and several restaurants are within walking distance. The trolley, which runs the entire length of the island and goes out to Lovers Key State Park and into the city of Fort Myers, has a stop a block from the house.
With a king bed, a queen bed, two twins, a twin day bed with pop-up trundle and a queen sleeper sofa, you will have room for a crowd. The great room, with its unique curved fireplace, holds a table that expands to seat 8, with room for 4 more at the nine-foot peninsula in the kitchen section. The fireplaces are beautiful to look at, but are non-functional. We love them anyway.
There is an 18 hole executive golf course located on Ft. Myers Beach on the south end of the Island. There is also a movie theater, a gym, a community center, tennis courts and pool with a kid play area and play ground.
Quiet neighborhood located close to all Fort Myers Beach Attractions. You have it all! Because of severe allergies we cannot accommodate pets or smoking in the house. Come for a week or stay for the season. Fort Myers Beach welcomes you, and so do we. This is paradise!
Are you active? There are fishing excursions, jet ski rentals, and parasailing close by. Run on the beach or bike along the street. There is golf - both miniature and otherwise. There are tennis courts and basketball courts. Kayak in the bay or fish in the Gulf.
For shoppers, there is everything from art galleries to swimsuit stores and at prices for every pocketbook.
If you must leave our happy island, the city of Fort Myers, Sanibel Island, and beautiful Naples are all within a half-hour's drive. Go shopping at outlet malls or in exclusive shops. Find one-of-a-kind art works. Go antiquing, or look for a bargain at a thrift store. Take in a baseball game during the winter season. Make your heart happy, and come back again next year.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Fort Myers Beach, Florida
Karen Davis Crole

The home is exactly as described. Four bedroom, two living areas and a large kitchen. Close walk to the beach, far enough away that you are not in all of the traffic but yet close enough to walk to most things. Grocery store three blocks away within walking distance. Love Ft Myers and Ft Myers Beach.

This house is in a great location, just a short walk to the beach. The beach was popular but not crowded. You have easy access from the beach to a local restaurant for lunch, dinner or a late afternoon drink on the beach or you can walk across the street to the convenience store. The house has a great room and a living room so, if you have a rainy day (We did not) there's a little more room for everyone and separate TVs. We appreciated the beach towels, many bath towels, cushion seating outside, the night lights all thru the house, the nicely stocked kitchen, the big garage for storing the beach chairs, our golf clubs, etc. We even used the little shopping cart to take a short walking trip to the local grocery. The pool is one of the best features of the house. It's big enough to swim short laps. The temperature was set at a comfortable level by the pool maintenance people. The solar cover is a plus. It may be a one person operation for removal, but is better with two people to put it back on the pool. This house is also a canal house. There was not much canal traffic that we saw, but the fish seemed to be very jumpy. We had some questions during our stay and Kathleen, one of the owners, was very responsive to our e-mails. It was obvious she wanted us to enjoy our stay and we really appreciate that. In all, we enjoyed our stay at this Shell Mound house very much.
Great family destination

We all loved staying at this beautiful home away from home. Great location for walks and fun on the beach, close to restaurants and shops and even a local art gallery! The home is well appointed and stocked with anything and everything we needed. Having a private dip in the backyard pool or sitting on the deck overlooking the canal was a bonus at the end of a wonderful beach day! Will definitely return! Thanks to wonderful hosts for the hospitality and recommendations for restaurants etc.
Great Florida Family Vacation!

We had a great time with two of my sisters and our families. Plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable. Great space for large family meals (and dishwasher makes clean up easy). Quiet neighborhood and house is very private and peaceful on the canal. We had a visit from a great Blue Heron - landed on the dock while three of us were sitting there appreciating the view. The heron spent at least 5 minutes looking at us then flew off again. Fabulous! Pool is large and great fun. Beach is just a short walk away. Plenty of towels and beach chairs, etc. Perfect spot for a family vacation. Thanks, Kathie and Jim!
From MH, whose family stayed with us in April 2014:
All you need for a perfect vacation! The house was just as described! Great layout and close to EVERTHING! It is a loved home and every detail has been thought of! Can't wait to plan our return trip!!!!

About:Jim and I fell in love with Fort Myers Beach more than 25 years ago. For Jim, it feels like the small beach town he grew up in, and just driving over the bridge onto the island makes me happy. We walk on the beach every day we are there, and save occasional shells.
We think this house is a great...
