We provide a desk area for your convenience. There is also WI-FI for your laptop or other devices.

The unit offers cathedral ceilings, dishwasher, microwave, stove-top, oven, coffee maker, crock-pot, charcoal grill, blender, linens and bath towels. Also, we're providing, for your convenience, light-cleaning supplies. You'll have all the comforts of home when you choose to stay with us!

This unit will comfortably sleep four people. There is a comfy king bed in the guest room, and a comfy king bed in the master. There is also a raised, queen-size, blowup bed for your use if needed.

We're located mid-island and 360 steps (1/4 block) from the beautiful, powdery-white sand and the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. We're on a quiet street where you'll be able to relax on the screened-in lanai and enjoy our great Southwest Florida weather. You can have meals out there, play cards and games, or just do some good-ol' porch sittin'!

SMOKING OUTSIDE ON THE LANAI ONLY, PLEASE.

BEACH CHAIRS/TOWELS NOT PROVIDED; CHARCOAL NOT PROVIDED.

We love our pets, and we want them with us as much as possible. Especially, if you're going to be away from them for a long period of time. I wouldn't have wanted to leave our dog Murphy behind, and when you choose to stay with us, you may not have to leave your kids home, either! Please, no aggressive breeds.

The island of Fort Myers Beach is pet friendly. Dogs can be on the beach at any time of the day or evening; however, they must be leashed. But, if you head south toward Bonita Springs, just past Lover's Key State Park, you'll find Dog Beach. Dogs can run and play, leash free! So bring a ball or Frisbee, a chair and some water, and have a ball watching your pet make friends and frolic, on the beach and in the water! Of course, we have to make sure to pick up after our pets, here and everywhere else on the island. Mostly for the respect of other folks' property and also for respect of our beautiful beach town.

Maximum number of pets is two; but ask, I just might say yes!

DOGS MUST BE HOUSEBROKEN; CATS MUST BE LITTER TRAINED. IF CATS ARE NOT DE-CLAWED, PLEASE BRING SOMETHING ON WHICH THEY CAN SCRATCH. ALL PETS MUST BE WELL BEHAVED. WE MUST PICK UP AFTER OUR DOGS, ON THE BEACH AND EVERYWHERE ELSE. ECO-FRIENDLY BAGS ARE AVAILABLE AT ANY PUBLIC BEACH ACCESS, OR YOU CAN USE PLASTIC SHOPPING BAGS.

PLEASE EMAIL OR CALL FOR MORE INFORMATION.

About the area

We're close to "our" Times Square area where you'll find great restaurants, shops, and ice cream parlors. Or if you choose to cook in, feel free...remember, you're on vacation. Let go, relax, unwind... There's a library on the island; fishing piers boat rentals; bicycle rentals; scooter rentals; and miniature golf is just a short drive or trolley ride away. There are many 18-hole golf courses in the area. There's even an 18-hole course right here on the island! Remember to ask me about Captiva Cruises aboard the Lady Chadwick. She sails to many of the area's islands. You can go for lunch, shelling, a dolphin and wildlife excursion, or to unique shops. You can even enjoy a Cheeseburger in Paradise on Cabbage Key. It's said that's where Jimmy Buffett got his inspiration for that song! The Lady Chadwick departs from McCarthy's Marina on Captiva Island, and reservations are required. In the unit, I have provided a notebook filled with area menus and things to do and see, such as: boat rentals, kayak rentals, The Key West Express, The Big "M" Gambling Boat, etc. There's way too much to mention here. You'll just have to come down and see for yourselves all the great things to do. This is truly a beautiful area, and we have one of the best beaches in Southwest Florida! So, let me hear from you! Publix Supermarket and CVS Pharmacy are conveniently located on the island. Nearby attractions include: Sanibel/Captiva Island, The Naples Zoo, The Everglades, Lover's Key State Park, where you'll be able to rent canoes or kayaks, or just walk the trails, or enjoy the beautiful beach there. You can hop aboard the Key West Express for a beautiful day trip to Key West via the Gulf of Mexico. You can spend just the day, you can spend the night, or you can spend a few days and return at a later date. The Key West Express departs from Main Street, Fort Myers Beach. So much to do: parasailing, jet skiing, dolphin tours, fishing, shelling, paddle boarding, kayaking, bicycling, snorkeling, dinner cruises, museums, nature preserves, island hopping etc. Lots of island events: Pirate Festival, Shrimp Festival, World Sand Sculpting Championships, Hands Across the Beach week, There's a yearly Film Festival with large-screen, free movies on the beach. Just bring a chair, blanket, a little nosh and a beverage and you're set to watch the movies under the stars! Fort Myers Beach is a great vacation spot. There's lots to do, so many great restaurants to choose from, and it's a great place to just lay back and relax on the beautiful beach. We're sure you'll have a great, relaxing vacation here! Orlando and Tampa are both accessible from Fort Myers Beach. Orlando is about a four-hour drive and Tampa is about a two-and-a-half-hour drive. The Everglades is about an hour to an hour-and-a-half-hour drive. There you can hop aboard an airboat and whisk through the mangroves, with a guide, in hopes of spotting a gator. Airboats are easily boarded, so folks of all ages can take part in the adventure!

Interaction with guest

David and I are easily accessible, as we live right next door in the other unit of the duplex. Even though we are on site, we do not bother you during your stay. But, we're here to answer any questions or concerns you may have during your stay. We appreciate your choosing to stay with us. Please see our reviews. This should tell you a lot about the property and us. We are very proud to own this property. We view each guest as future friends. We have a lot of repeat business, and that's what we love.

“Great place!”

Reviewed 27 Dec 2016

We stayed here for 4 years and due to medical reasons, are unable to return. This is a great spacious home. Has a huge living room and good-sized kitchen. The lanai is awesome. That is where our goldendoodle and labradoodle hung out and watched people go by. Jill and Dave are the greatest landlords! Christy is the greatest as well. If you have a problem, christy will take care of it. I can't say enough about the house and the people we have gotten to know here. Everyone on the street is very friendly and it had become like a second home. Whoever rents this great house will be very lucky. Hopefully one day we can return.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for the great review, Elvira! We all will miss you this year. Hopefully, you can get back down. Thanks again. Love you guys.

“4th of July weekend with a great place to stay.”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2016

My wife, son, mother, father and I stayed at this beautiful home for the 4th of July weekend and loved it. The home is very nice, very clean, well maintained, with all amenities needed from Wireless Internet (Even a desktop computer provided), Cable TV with big screen in the livingroom and a TV in both bedrooms, a garage to store my Paddle boards, a full kitchen with everything you could need, a bbq grill for those great 4th BBQ's, a nice comfortable livingroom with plenty of couches and recliners for all of us to enjoy family time, accomodations for our sweet little dogs (Family members too), information on local things to do. It is less than one Block from the beach access to a beautiful pet friendly beach and walking distance from some great restaurants and only a few blocks away to Publix. The Owner is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She takes the time to make sure you have everything you need, yet provides you the privacy you want too. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the area.

“4th of July at Ft. Myers Beach Family and Pets.”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2016

My wife, son, mother, dad and I all thought this was a wonderful place to stay. The house was very nice, well maintained, well supplied, clean and comfortable. The beds were great and everything Jill provided was great. One of the nicest things about this property besides the fact it is less than a block from the Beautiful (Pet Friendly) Beach is how nice the Owner Jill is. She takes the time to talk to you and offer anything she can to help. She also provides you with your privacy and leaves you to enjoy your stay but is only a text or phone call away. There are great restaurants walking distance from the house on the Beach, Publix is just a few minutes away if you wish to use the complete kitchen or the bbq grill. Everything I could ask for and we will be back. Thanks Jill for being such a wonderful host. Wayne, Kim, Thomas, Pat and Brent Carter. (And Hopie)

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for the wonderful review, Wayne! It was a pleasure meeting you, Kim, Thomas, and your mom and dad. David and I are thrilled that you loved the place and plan to return! I'm gonna hold you to it! :) Thanks again. It was our pleasure.

“Memorial Weekend to Remember”

Reviewed 31 May 2016

This is our second time at Jill and Dave's and it feels like coming back home thanks to our hostesses. We have two Boston Terriers that love the beach and it is hard to find such a perfect place to bring our babies. The place is clean, spacious, and has all the amenities of a home. My husband and I cannot wait to return this summer.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for the wonderful review, Blanca and Gino! We can't wait till you come back! We love you guys!

“Ideal family vacation home.”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2015

This was the perfect home for our vacation. The community was beautiful and the home is in a perfect quiet location. The house is magnificent and we enjoyed our stay so much. We will definitely come again.

Owner's reply: Hi, Dailin, Thanks so much for the wonderful review. David, Christy, and I look forward to having your family back to vacation with us. And please, tell your friends! :)

“A dream come true!”

Reviewed 21 May 2015

It was a real honor to be able to stay at such a comfortable house and with such AMAZING owners and neighbors. There was NOTHING missing at the place. Jill and Davis have thought of EVERYTHING that anyone could need. My Koko (my dog) was in heaven because in Miami we live in a very small one bedroom apartment and there he had a lot of space to run around. The beach is a few steps away, beautiful beach! In the early morning, when I would take Koko for a walk around the beach, we were always greeted by 4 dolphins that were just doing a show for us. This place is the closest thing to heaven! I really, really recommend it! Olivia, Peter and Koko

Owner's reply: Wow, Olivia...thank you for a wonderful review! As you know, we'd love to have you guys back again, as many times as you can make it! Honest. Thank you again.

“Wonderful owners - spacious duplex”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2014

Jill and family made us feel so welcome. Unit is very large with comfy bed and all the comforts of home. Our pups loved the lanai - they didn't want to come home! Very nice location mid island and easy walk to nice, estuary-free beach. Extremely fair pricing for all that was provided - we definitely will stay there again if we get the chance!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for the great review, Angie and Greg. We loved meeting you and having you stay with us. Although we are praying that you get your house down here, if it doesn't work out, you know where to come! Thanks again. Jill, David, Christy, and Dan

“Fabulous Beach Home”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2013

Just had another fabulous 2wks at the beach w/Murphy & the gang. Jill & David are the most gracious hosts, catering to every need. Which are few & far between as their lovely & spacious home is already equipped with all the comforts of home. Our dog Mish loved the lanai for people watching. We are already looking forward to our stay next year.

“Wonderful Vacation Home!”

Reviewed 11 Mar 2013

We couldn't be happier with our month long vacation with Dave, Jill, Murphy, and Christy. It feels like home from the first moment! Their accomadation is CLEAN, spacious, and VERY comfortable...located in a quiet residential area yet within walking distance to beautiful Ft. Meyers Beach. A spacious living area, fully equipped kitchen, 2 comfortable beds, full size bathrooms, and a wonderful lanai made our visit everything we wanted plus having our dog "Mallie" with us!! We loved the relaxing moments, friendly neighbors, GREAT restaurants, tourist spots to visit, and outstanding sunsets !! This is a great "home" away and you truly feel welcome and comfortable. We LOVE this place and look forward to next year's stay.
