About the area

Take a short walk down the street and cross over to the white sugar sand beach that looks out into the Gulf of Mexico. Forget the crowded beaches from the Northeast; our beach is like your own private beach, especially the area near our home. There are 7 miles of beach on Ft.Myers Beach that you can walk, jog, ride a bike (that you can rent easily), and collect pretty seashells. The area is famous for its fishing and known as "The tarpon fishing capital of the world." Or from our home, you can go down the block and make a right turn and in two miles you will be in downtown Ft.Myers Beach or the "Times Square" area. Here you will find cute shops, restaurants, ice cream shops & the long fishing pier. Some of our guests like to take the Trolley downtown and there is a trolley stop in front of the Baptist Church on Estero Blvd. up the block from our home. It is easy to get a trolley schedule and the new trolleys run all day long about every 20minutes and even transport bicycles. It is fun to go to Times Square in the evening and get some ice cream, look in the shops, then watch the sun set from the fishing pier. We get the most gorgeous sunsets on Ft.Myers Beach! If you like boating, there are several places to rent boats for half days, a day or a week. They will deliver and pick up the boat and give you a quick instruction. We can recommend marinas very close to our home. Also, the same for kayaks. Shopping is convenient as well. There is an excellent Publix about a mile from our home. In addition to Time Square stores, there is a shopping plaza with a CVS pharmacy, a hardware store, Hallmark card store & post office, Bank of America & other retail stores about 1 mile past the Publix store. If you want to venture off the Beach, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island, known for their gorgeous beaches, lighthouse & shells are about 30 minutes away by car or you can go by boat as well. If you are a golfer, Ft.Myers Beach has a golf course and there are many golf courses in the Ft.Myers area. Also, there are tennis courts on Ft.Myers Beach for tennis players. For those who enjoy history, in Ft.Myers are the winter homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford and a wonderful museum. This is a fun activity for a half day and the estate grounds are on the water and are beautiful to see. There is also Lover's Key state Park, that is just 10 minutes south that has beautiful beaches. You can take an excursion to the Everglades or Key West (a ship leaves from downtown Ft.Myers Beach). If you like gambling, there is a Casino Ship in downtown Ft.Myers Beach that goes out regularly. You will love coming to Ft.Myers Beach to relax and have fun!

“Wonderful family vacation”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

We had a group of 12 and the house accommodated us well. My son loves to fish and the dock served the purpose. We rented kayaks and he fished the bay. Saw Dolphins, manatees, a turtle and stingray! We were able to watch from the dock or the screened in porch. Great vacation on Fort Myers Beach !

Owner's reply: Thank you,Tina! I appreciate your positive review. I enjoy hearing that my guests had a wonderful stay at my home! Please come again in the near future! Terri

“Wonderful family vacation”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

My extended family spent a week in this beautiful home. I have a son who loves to fish. The dock and fish station were wonderful. We were able to sit on the dock or in the screened porch and watch. Saw Dolphins, manatees and my son rented a kayak and saw a turtle and stingray. We had 12 people which the house accommodated wonderfully. Would recommend this home to anyone wanting to have a great family time at beautiful Fort Myers Beach!

We had a absolutely magical time of making memories that will stay with our whole family forever! From our first peek when we came in the front door until the moment we all left and pulled out of the driveway we were WOW'ed! We got up early every day to watch the most spectacular sunrises and walk the block and 1/2 to the beach for sunsets. The kids were kept totally entertained (not easy for four teenages) with fishing off of the dock, swimming in the indoor pool - right in the living room! - 4 completely separate living areas (with tv's), a pool table, ping pong table, cooking and eating together, the master suite is spectacular and like it's own private home. Now we can't wait to get home and revisit all our memories and pictures about the BEST vacation ever with the most spectacular accomodations EVER! Never in our wildest dreams could we have put that together and we just "stumbled" on your website - it was so easy for us to find a place to rent for 12 of us. Can't thank you enough!

Owner's reply: Thank you for being such wonderful guests in our home! We hope that you all will come back in the near future! Also, many thanks for taking the time to write a wonderful review of your week. We are very happy that you had such a good time. That is exactly what we love to hear!!! Best regards, Terri and Bernie

“Excellent Home for Famly get together”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2016

Lots of private rooms, plenty of gathering places, great internet and TV. We enjoyed the large dock area with a constant passing of boats. The fishing was great. The Dulphing coming right up to the dock was quite enjoyable. The only problem was the excessive road traffic

“A true five star”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2015

This is the ultimate getaway for a large family. We were 2 adults 6 kids and everyone had their quarters and were able to enjoy intimacy when needed. The house is perfectly equipped and only a short walk to a beautiful beach. The dolphins would come feed at tide change and were just feet away. The Master suite is a true ensuite and the kitchen is properly equipped to cook for a large group. We and the kids had an awesome time. The indoor pool was perfect and the game room even better. We rented a boat at the marina that was just a few blocks away and picked all up at the house docking. We will be back. We highly recommend this property and the owners were great

Owner's reply: Thank you, Francois for taking the time to write a wonderful detailed review! I am very pleased that you and your family enjoyed my home; that is just what I love to hear. You were excellent guests and I hope that you all return very soon.

“We have had a wonderful time in this home!!”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2014

Everything was just very nice and Debbie took god care of us. All the rooms where well prepared and clean. The pool and the spa was a great pleasure for all of us. We liked the billiard also as the big gas barbecue. most of all we liked sitting on the big pier, watching Dolphins and Manatees most every day! Für alle deutschen Urlauber: Es ist ein wirklich schöner Ort, seinen Urlaub zu verbringen. Nicht weit vom Timesquare und doch weit genug entfernt um Ruhe zu haben. Der Bootssteg schein zunächst nicht wichtig, wenn man aber einmal dort gesessen hat, will man gar nicht wieder weg. Das Haus muss sicher mal wieder "überarbeitet" werden, ist aber noch in einem guten Zustand und der Herd ist der beste, den ich bis jetzt in den Staaten gesehen habe. Auch der Indorpool ist sehr schön, da es, gerade im Sommer doch mal regnet und Florida. Ich kann dieses Haus daher nur empfehlen, auch wegen der schönen Aufteilung der Räume. Erwachsene können sich ganz zurück ziehen, aber auch 6 Paare sind hier sicher gut aufgehoben. Allein die Ausstattung der Küche könnte besser sein, ist halt ne Menge Plastik und wenig Glas im Schrank, auch das Besteck könnte besser sein. Alles in Allem aber ein wirklich tolles Hause, auch wenn es langsam in die Jahre kommt!

Owner's reply: I am very happy that Reiner and his group enjoyed their stay in my home. I hope that they will return again. They were very nice guests! We have the plastic glasses for our guests for a safety reason. Since we have an indoor pool, we don't want our guests to accidentally drop a glass and then cut their bare feet on it around the pool area. So we have gotten lots of high end plastic glasses to use.
