Description from owner

Two Separate 900+ sq. ft. Units Available in this Fabulously Constructed Home Layout OR Reserve Both for whole family or function!! Ground Level-Lower Unit great for grandma & grandpa and Upper Level Unit for the active adults! Located mid-island and only a casual three minute walk to beach (each sleeps up to 6). Call/text/e-mail to inquire about the fantastic deals when reserving both units (sleeps up to 12+) when availability permits!

The 'Lower Unit' Chance in Paradise Vacation Rental is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit on the ground level of a two story mid-island home. Park your rental car in the ample off-street parking and be greeted by a completely screened in, front lanai which opens into the main living area where you'll be able to watch the large flat-screen cable television while relaxing on the comfortable Ashley Furniture sofa-sleeper or accent chair. Cool tile floors will feel good on the feet that have spent the day on the warm sandy beach, a three minute leisure walk from your vacation home.

The open concept living area features the living room, kitchen, and dinning area with dining room attached to the open kitchen that has a pass-through breakfast bar perfect to use as a buffet area for dinner guests. The kitchen itself features all new stainless steel appliances including fridge, dishwasher, stove, and under cabinet microwave. The extensive cabinets give you plenty of room to store food for your stay, which you can pick up at the nearby Publix grocery store.

In the rear of the home is the master bedroom with en suite bathroom and access to the back enclosed lanai through glass French doors. The master bathroom includes a shower and a vanity with ample storage space for all your toiletries. Just across the main bathroom, which features a shower/tub combination, is a conveniently stacked washer and dryer closet. Both bedrooms are outfitted with queen beds, ceiling fans, side bed tables and lamps, flat screen TV's and both bedrooms have their own back access through their individual French door exits to the oversized back screened in lanai with a view of the backyard above ground pool which is a new addition. It is a 9'x18' rectangular pool featuring custom built stair steps and platform for ease of entering and exiting.

The 'Upper Unit' accommodations offers all the same amenities as the 'Lower Unit' with the exception of not being wheelchair accessible and the bedrooms both feature king size beds. This unit also sleeps four people comfortably in the two bedrooms but can also accommodate up to six by utilizing the newer Pier1 living room sofa sleeper.

The two units rent separately at the identical rate provided below. Please make mention in your inquiry if any member of your party is unable to climb the flight of stairs shown in the main picture. The top of the stairs opens into a huge wrap around lanai attached to upper unit with French doors opening to living room and both bedrooms and makes for a great area to entertain guests or for children to play outdoors.

Perhaps the thing you'll enjoy most about this property is its superb location within a 3 minute walking distance of the 7 mile sandy Gulf shore and a short trolley ride to Times Square or Santini Marina Plaza where you'll find great shopping. There's so much to do in Fort Myers Beach including fishing, kayaking, beachcombing, dining in incredible restaurants and more. When you make Chance in Paradise Vacation Rental your vacation headquarters, you'll be perfectly located to take advantage of it all.

My girlfriend and I stayed here in January. The rental was awesome and Yvonne was incredible. We booked last minute and she was more than willing to accommodate any and all needs we had. This is the best place I have ever stayed. There was a tornado while we were there and she moved us from the upper unit to the lower unit until the storm passed. The beach was awesome and so close. I absolutely loved it and will be staying again.

We rented the main floor and were totally satisfied! They provided everything we needed and more like bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, a wagon to carry our things to the beach, coolers, beach towels, etc,.. We felt right at home!

My family vacationed here last month & had an amazing time! The updated units are clean & having a full kitchen & laundry machine/dryer came in very handy. Our boys enjoyed the pool out back & the beach was only 1 block away. They had wagons & everything we needed for the beach to load up to take with us. Can't wait to go back!!

Made some great memories over this holiday! Met the owner, and she was as sweet as could be. The upper unit was spacious and had all we needed. The walk to the beach was only a few minutes away, with the beach access right there. We would stay here again. Nice clean place!

“Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2016

Die voll ausgestattete Wohnung mit den 2 Schlafzimmern war die schönste, die wir bisher hatten. Nach einem kurzen Fußweg waren wir am tollen weißen Strand, aber die Jungs waren auch öfters mal im Pool. Für die große Veranda war's uns leider immer zu heiß, aber 1x haben wir auch gegrillt. Strandzubehör wie Liegestühle, Sonnenschirme, Schwimmbretter ist alles da und sogar die Fahrräder durften wir benutzen. Ein sehr schöner Urlaub!

Owner's reply: Thanks Dirk! We are so glad you enjoyed your summer stay and would love to have you all back anytime. Although the upper unit is a bit larger and a little more accommodating the back lanai is very hot in peak summer months. We hope to have an additional unit added to our rentals soon and have 3 units to choose from. So be sure to check back for future travel and please pass on our information to family & friends. We strive to keep our reservation process accommodating to all! Trish & Yvonne

My brother and his family were coming to Ft Myers for a vacation so we rented this home for 4 days (Aug 1st-4th we checked out the 5th). I am actually a local but we decided to rent both units so we could enjoy a "staycation" ourselves. My family stayed in the lower unit while my brother's family stayed in the upper. We enjoyed ourselves so much!!! My 6 year old niece spent most of her time in the pool along with all the pool toys and floats. We played cards on the porches while the infamous evening Florida storms rolled through, cooked out on the grills, road bikes, walked to the beach, road the trolley to Times Square and caught Pokémon! We had two teenagers that were happy to have their own space and WIFI!! Trish was very helpful and accommodating. They have thought about anything and everything that you could possibly want or need while staying. There were plenty of bikes, chairs, toys, towels and dishes. The beach is just a hop, skip and jump away and the trolley stop is even closer. Everyone in our group was super impressed and happy with the accommodations. I look forward to having another excuse to stay and will recommend this house to all my friends and family. AWESOME!!!

“Perfect condo in a great location!”

I rented both units for our family vacation and we loved it! They have everything you need and so close to everything. Trish and Yvonne were great and very accommodating! I would definitely recommend this place.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much!! We enjoy doing the double rental and seeing a big family enjoy their time & space together. Thanks again, Yvonne & Trish

My Fiance & I stayed here with our 2 friends and my brother and we could not stop talking about how nice & clean this place was. It was fantastic with a homely feel. Great location just a 2 min walk to the beach across the street. Super clean and well decorated with everything that you will need. Great pool and I loved the enclosed patios in the front and back. Just amazing. This place was one of the best thing on my trip. I will definitely book there again. Thank you to Yvonne who was absolutly great and very accommodating and she kept the place very clean and well stocked with supplies and towels.

I stayed here with three of my friends and we had the best stay we could ever ask for. The owner was more than helpful and so accommodating. She was able to answer any of our questions and was very hospitable. There was a tropical storm when we were there and she let us come down into her unit because we were in the upper unit. Our unit itself was beautiful. So clean and well furnished. Overall the owner was so kind, the place was beautiful, and I would most definitely stay there again!

“You're a guest here, not just a renter!”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2016

If you want to feel like you're an actual guest and not just another renter for an owner to make a dollar, then definitely stay here. The owner and her daughter truly make you feel welcome and want you to enjoy your time at the beach. They go out of their way to make sure you are happy and comfortable. Location: 5 starts - Perfect! One block from the beach, which in our case is actually better than being on the beach or on the main road. With young, adventurous children it's safer and you don't have to worry about them sneaking out to the beach. There is a beach crossing off the street it's on so it's easy and quickly accessible. Not too close to the hussle and crowds of the dining/shopping area, but close enough to be there in a few minutes if you drive. Publix is just down the street and easy to get to by bike or car if you need anything. Home/Furnishings: 5 stars - Very clean, up to date, comfortable and everything you need. The patio on the back makes it nice for watching kids in the pool or to eat outside without the bugs! Overall I highly recommend to anyone with a group of 6 or less, and if you need more room you can also rent the home upstairs. Love this place and will DEFINITELY come back to stay when we make it back to the beach!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much Kevin!! And we can't wait to have you all back!
