Description of the Fort Myers Beach vacation home rental
If you want to be in the heart of the action, but yet be able to slip away quickly to enjoy some quiet time, this is the place! Primo Pool & Palms is located in the much desired Times Square District and is just a few minutes walk to the Beach, Times Square and Old San Carlos Blvd where you will find water sport rentals, beach shops and plenty of restaurants. Use the bikes to ride down to the beach, or its a very short walk. A beach cart and beach chairs are included that you can take down to the beach. Or you can just stay put and relax in the free form pool with tanning platform and attached spa surrounded by the tropically landscaped yard. You can also sit on the dock and look for the manatees and dolphins that occasionally visit the canals. Maybe a kayak cruise for two into the intercoastal to look for Dolphin, Manatee or bird watching. Or maybe just relax with a book in the hammock under the Royal Palm in the sand courtyard. If you're a boater, bring/rent a boat and tie up to the dock and be just minutes from the Gulf! You will feel that you have found a hidden Oasis at Primo Pool & Palms!

Look for Primo Pool and Palms on face book to see additional pictures and updates.

The rental rate does include access to 4 bikes (no helmets available) and the tandem kayak, along with all of the other great amenities at Primo Pool & Palms. If you would like additional kayaks, there's a marina just across the intercostal that rents a tandem kayak for $39* for 4 hours. If you require additional bikes, you can rent them just down the street at Quicky Scooter for $18* per day or $45* for the week.
(*these are the current rates as of February, 2016)

The house sleeps 12 (10 in beds in bedrooms and 2 on daybed that converts to twin beds or can be connected to form a king size bed). The house can accommodate large families, or is easily shared by two families. It's location allows for easy on and off access to the Island and includes plenty of parking space.

You read the reviews and you think, this place can't be that good. Let us assure you it is. From the inside where every inch was recently superbly remodeled to the dual kitchens to the high end outdoor grill to the private patio and pool area, it is everything others have said and more. Our guess is there are 40-50 palm trees surrounding the pool and if there is a better looking yard and pool area in FMB, we'd be surprised. It gives you a secluded, tropical island feel, even including a sandy area with hammock shaded by mature palms. We did not see one bug even though the days were 90 degrees. Not sure whether it's the breezes from the water or that Barb the property manager forbids them, but not one mosquito. We had 8 people and could have easily accommodated a few more without being crowded. Everything you need is provided from bikes to kayaks to beach chairs and cart to beach towels- even wine glasses and china for nice dinners if you choose and by our count 7 large flat screen TV's including one by the pool in case there's an important game you just can't miss. Location is fantastic. Car is not needed and never even needed use of trolley. Short walk around corner has nightlife yet at pool in evening, dead quiet and relaxing. Truly one of our best family vacations. If only there were a way to add a few days to the week. We will be back.

Wonderful Rental!!

April 28, 2016

We have stayed here twice over the last two years. It was everything we could have hoped for and more! Plenty of space for our group to sleep and have fun. The pool area is out of this world! Two kitchens is very nice when you have a big group like we did. Beds are super comfortable, but you don't spend much time in them! Awesome location next to the Times Square area and one block walk to the beach. Owners are great and respond back to inquires fast. Highly recommend this rental! Going back again in 2017 already!

Owner's reply:

Thanks Dave! Appreciate you sending in a review and for the kind words! Look forward to your group coming back next year :)
