Description from owner

PRIMO POOL AND PALMS ON FORT MYERS BEACH, IS A RECENTLY RENOVATED, 2100 SQ FT, CANAL FRONT, 4 BR, VACATION HOME THAT CAN SLEEP UP TO 12 AND IS LOCATED IN THE NORTH END'S TIMES SQUARE AREA.

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. 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. Maybe you prefer sit on the dock and look for the manatee and dolphin that occasionally visit the canals. Maybe a kayak cruise for two into the intercostal to look for Dolphin, Manatee or go bird watching...or kayak to breakfast or lunch! 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 6 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.

The lay-out of this 4 bedroom home allows for plenty of privacy with an Upper Level that features 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Kitchen and Living Area. And a Lower Level that also features 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Kitchen and Living Area. For privacy, just close the entry doors that separate the levels or leave open for free flowing access to the entire house.

All mattresses are encased in Allerease protection cases. Pillows are also in Allerease cases. Beds, Bedding and Linens are fresh and updated as needed.

You will find flat screen TVs through out the house, including in the lower lanai. The house is equipped with Wi-Fi, Cable and a telephone. Both Kitchens have new cabinets, appliances and granite counters and are fully stocked for your cooking needs; Both Bathrooms are stocked with plenty of linens, including beach towels; The Laundry room has 2 front load washers and dryers for your use. Most everything in the house has been purchased within the last two years.

The hardest decision you will make while you stay at Primo Pool & Palms is whether you want to leave and explore or just stay at the house and enjoy the hidden Oasis of the pool and backyard! For grocery needs: there's a 7-Eleven at the end of the street; a Topps Market approximately 1 mile away and a Publix Market approximately 3 miles away. And a new Walmart just opened up recently on San Carlos Blvd shortly before crossing over Matanzas Bridge and is only 3.5 miles away and is on the Trolley Stops as is the other Markets. Or just take one of the 6 bikes (several have carts) to grab a few groceries. For fresh fish and shrimp, visit Trico Seafood Market...just a kayak ride across the Intercoastal! There's also a Farmer's Market located under Matanzas Pass Bridge on Friday mornings. There's another Farmers Market on Tuesdays at Santini Plaza at the South end of the Island. Farmers Markets are seasonal. The Beach is #1 of course! Barely a 5 minute walk with public parks, water sport rentals, a volleyball park and more Times Square is just a 10-15 minute walk offering live music both day and night, great food options, beach/gift shops and street performers. Bowditch Park is a nice public park that covers the northern tip of the Island. Great for walking and nature viewing. Saw many dolphin playing in the surf and a land tortoise on my last visit! Restaurants/Bars: There are so many options all just a short walk or bike ride away! The Beached Whale at the corner of our Street is one of our favorites with views of the ocean from the upper deck. Some other favorites: Salty Crab where you can sit at picnic tables with your toes in the sand; Matanzas with choices for finer dining on lower level or casual on their upper deck. Both with beautiful views over the Intercostal. Doc Ford's just over the Causeway also has great Intercoastal views with a great menu and is walkable/bikeable. Pierside and Sunset Beach Grille are great locations for ocean views and to view the sunset. If you are in the mood for crab, you must try the garlic crab at SOB (Smokin Oyster Brewery) YUM! There are also numerous fun little places along the way to pop into...The DogHouse, also at the end of our street, has great hot dogs but also makes a great burger! Don't want to go out, and don't want to cook...order from Ray's Pizza. It's really good pizza and they deliver! Make sure to get the breadsticks! Tiki Bar and The Cottage are great for late night fun. So many great choices! Too many to list them all! You will want more than a week to try to get to them all!

You can easily enjoy a stay without a vehicle as there is plenty of restaurants/bars, shopping, beach rentals are available in close walking distance. During your stay, there are 7 bikes available for your use to get around. Other means of transportation: There are many cabs on the Beach just waiting to give you a reasonably priced ride.

“Beautiful home, with everything you need (& more!)”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2017

Our family rented this house for a month in February 2017. We were a mixed group of 4 generations throughout the month & we couldn't have imagined a better equipped home! First of all, the home is immaculate... and the owner definitely put a lot of thought into making sure you have everything you need when you stay there. The two kitchens and two floors were PERFECT for our many generations (75 to 6 months!) The pictures are very accurate of the house & I'm pretty sure the pool/spa and yard are the biggest on Primo Drive... if not all of FMB! Everyone agreed, this place feels a bit like the Caribbean because its quiet and secluded with beautiful landscaping, but then you can walk a short 5-10 minutes to at least 15 good restaurants/bars! We've already booked a trip to this house next year, we can't wait to return!!!

“Perfect vacation home!”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2017

I just returned from my 2 week stay at Barb's wonderful home, and I can't wait to go back! There were 11 of us (6 adults and 5 kids) who stayed in the home, and it never felt crowded at all! The home is well equipped with everything we needed~ cooking utensils, dishes, towels, games for the kids and adults, etc.). The hot tub and pool were a huge hit as well, and both were enjoyed day and night by all. The beach supplies were also a bonus~ all we had to do was fill a cooler, grab the beach towels, and push the wheeled buggy with the beach chairs down the road to enjoy the beach! We spent a lot of time at Time's Square and got to try many different restaurants as well as do a lot of shopping~ just a short walk away! The kayak and fishing supplies were also a nice bonus to use in the canal right in the back of the house. Barb was wonderful to work with, and answered all of my questions immediately! I would definitely recommend this house to others, and I hope to stay there again next winter!

Owner's reply: Thank you for the wonderful review! So glad you enjoyed the house and your time on Fort Myers Beach! We try to supply the house with all of the items needed for a relaxing and carefree vacation...glad to hear we were successful. Look forward to hearing from you in the future :)

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to post a review! Appreciate the kind words and recommendation :)

“This is it. Best place in FMB”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2016

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.
