Description from owner

Our dream home is the perfect haven for sun worshippers, boaters, beach lovers, or anyone looking for the calming comfort of being on the water. It is conveniently located 2 blocks from the beach - a quick walk to one of the most pristine, soft sanded beaches in Florida. The gulf is clear and warm and a great location for shelling.

For boaters, the no wake zone ends at our street. We are located only four houses from the bay making the trip to Lovers Key and fishing grounds fast and easy. The dock includes a boat lift and two tandem kayaks are available for use.

Enjoy the new, saltwater pool while looking over the canal. The property is beautifully landscaped with the largest mango tree you will ever see. Watch the dolphins, who love to play in the canal, from the screened-in lanai or from the bench on the dock.

Times Square, with great shopping, restaurants and night life, is only 3 miles away - or ride our bikes to San Marino Plaza for great shopping and restaurants closer to home.

Our home is recently updated with an open layout. The kitchen, overlooking the pool and canal, includes granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The living room, equipped with a flat screen TV and a pull out leather sofa, is comfortable and spacious. The master bedroom features a king size bed and TV with ensuite bath. Our guest rooms are spacious with large closets and comfortable beds.

This house is the perfect retreat for those who cherish the sun, sand, quiet, and salty air.

About the area

Avenida Pescadora is located three blocks from Publix, which is incredibly convenient for daily shopping. It is a quick walk to the beach. The beach includes easy access to water sports, such as parasailing, jet ski rentals, and dolphin tours. So many great restaurants nearby - San Marino Plaza, a bike ride away, has too many to mention. You can also ride a bike or take a quick drive to Junkanoos and Fresh Catch, just to name a few. Or take a quick drive to the center of Fort Myers Beach with great night life, restaurants, and shopping. There is also a trolley for island transportation if you don't want to rent a car - just 50 cents a ride. When you are ready to retire, Avenida Pescadora is back in the quiet center area of the island. We are four homes from the end of the canal, which is the end of the no wake zone. This provides easy access to Lover's Key, Sanibel and Captiva. The Fort Myers Beach area includes mini-golfing, an amusement park on Summerlin Drive, great outlet shopping, and many marinas for fishing tours or boat rentals. If you love to read, Fort Myers Beach has the best library around and its a bike ride away.

“Perfect home!!!”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2016

This home has it all!!! No stairs. Recently updated. Tastefully decorated. Open floor plan perfect for entertainment. Spacious private master bedroom split from other 2 bedrooms. Covered outdoor deck in front of perfect pool right off of kitchen. We spent most of our time on the deck visiting with friends. Home is close to Newton Park on the beach that has public restrooms. It is also centrally located on the island and just a few blocks from the grocery store. The home owner, Elena, has also supplied 6 bicycles, 2 kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas & a beach cart. It also appeared that there were lots of toys for the kids to play in the sand with. The home is comfortably equipped. Plenty of kitchenware & appliances. Elena , the home owner, was a pleasure to work with and always quick to respond if I had any questions. My husband and I were looking for property to purchase while we were there. This house definitely set the bar for what I wanted to find in our home. I would definitely recommend this home!!!

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your review Shelly. We are thrilled that you enjoyed our home as much as we do. We love FMB and our location as well, as you know. We hope you find a property nearby - but if not, we would love to have you back soon. All the best - Elena.

“Clean - Comfy - Convenient!”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2015

We just got back today from our 2 week vacation and wanted to write my review while all the great memories are still fresh in my head. First off Ft Myers Beach is one of the best locations in FL because of all the great restaurants and fabulous beach. You just can't go wrong because there is something for everyone. The house was VERY clean. The open concept living and kitchen was perfect for our family where we had plenty of room to cook, watch TV and hang out in the evenings. The pool runs east/west so there is sunshine all day which is great if you decide to just hang out at the pool and relax. The beach is ~ 2 block walk and with the provided cart/coolers/chairs is was super easy. All the appliances are new and worked perfectly. Plenty of cooking gear all in good shape. Everyone agreed that is was so nice to have big comfy couches to watch football on Sunday. We will definitely will contact Elena again when we decide to return to Ft. Myers in the future. She was super easy to work with and was extremely prompt in answering our questions to ensure our vacation was fun and relaxing.

Owner's reply: Thank you Pam. We are looking forward to having you back soon! So glad you enjoyed! All the best, Elena

“Fort Myers Mini Family Reunion”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2015

We just returned home from a week in Fort Myers Beach, Florida where we stayed in one of the best vacation homes ever. My family gets together every summer usually in condos but this year we decided to stay in a house and we are so glad we did. The owner Elena, was one of the nicest ladies I have ever worked with and her home was absolutely fantastic. It was very well equipped with everything we possibly needed from the kitchen to the beach items. The owner was extremely generous telling us we were more than welcome to use anything at the house including their kayaks. The house is beautifully updated and very clean. It is centrally located in the city so it is not far from anything or any place we wanted to go. We would definitely rent this house again. My family had a fabulous time and we were very sorry to leave. Thank you for the hospitality Elena.

Owner's reply: Thank you Mary. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you back! Best, Elena

Beautiful area and home. Had a great time. Loved the heated pool and utilized the Kayaks. Had fun riding on the beach every day. I would recommend this home to anyone as a great vacation property. Close to most everything.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the review. We're so glad that you enjoyed the bikes and kayaks! We look forward to having you stay with us again.

“Minnesota family”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2014

Location...location...location! Close to shopping and the grocery store. Close to the beach and Lovers Key State Park. The house itself had everything we needed. The pool has children's fence around it which made for a relaxing vacation with our two year old grandson. We had a couple of small issues that the owner took care right away. I locked myself out of the house and she sent her wonderful in laws with a key! I would absolutely recommend this property. Easy check in and check out! Thanks again!

Owner's reply: We love our location too! Can't beat it - best part of the island! So glad you enjoyed yourselves and thank you for the review! Our in-laws enjoyed meeting you :) We hope to see you again soon.

“Perfect House for a Beach Vacation"”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday for a stay in July 2016

We loved this house. It was clean and modern. It had everything we needed. We loved the kayaks and had a blast in the canal as well as out in the bay around the mangrove islands. The house has all you need for the beach, toys, towels, coolers, beach bags, even a wagon to bring it all if you don't want to carry anything. The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes, less if you ride the bikes. If you want to do paddleboarding, wave - runners or parasailing - that can all be done right at the beach we walked to. You don't have to drive and pay to park for these adventures.

We loved the salt water pool. The temp of the water was perfect for us and we spend hours each day in it! We even fished off the pier in the back yard and caught catfish.

The house is very close to Publix so that was a convenience. Close enough to Times Square that you can get there easily enough, far enough away that the crowds and traffic aren't annoying. Plenty of quiet roads for biking, walking and running. There is a great gym that we used for only $10 a day 1.5 miles down the road, so that was a plus for the body builders in our party.

We would come and stay here again!
