About the area

In North Fort Myers, off Orange Grove, three minutes by car to 'Old 41', five minute walk to the marina and Caloosahatchee River. This community was incorporated into the high-end Lochmoor Golf and Country Club complex, which is not currently operating, but the fairways behind the homes make wonderful walking trails. These well built homes are on spacious, beautifully manicured lots, and the area exudes peace and quiet. The neighbours are, for the most part, retirees, about 70% of whom live there year round. 10 minutes from Fort Myers, 45 minutes from Naples, 1 hr to Tampa, 2.5 hrs to Orlando and Miami, and three hours from 'The Keys'. Lots to do and see with the Ford and Edison Estates, Sanabel Island, Fort Myers, Pine Island and and Cape Coral Beaches, Alligator Alley and lots more only minutes away. Ten minutes from Minnesota Twins and Bosox Spring Training facilities.

We had the nicest two week stay in this amazing home. The best feature and nicest surprise was the size of the pool. It is rare to get a pool deep enough to dive in. The worst thing was trying to drag the kids away from it to do some exploring! The house was roomy and offered a real make yourself at home vibe. Everything you could possibly need was on hand, plenty of crockery/cutlery/towels. The residential street itself was so quiet and friendly. Local restaurants, supermarkets and takeaways are all within easy driving distance. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone. We left (reluctantly!) feeling like we had actually had a holiday, can't wait to return next year!

Owner's reply: Thanks so much Lisa, so happy you enjoyed our home, and thanks for treating it with such TLC. Looking forward to hosting you again next year. Ted & Shirley

“A Vacation Home Away From Home”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2014

Our family has stayed in this house two times. We enjoyed it so much the first time, there was no hesitation to rent it again. Our family consists of my husband and myself, son, two daughters, son in law, and our granddaughter. The house is perfect for a large family, or possibly two families. Everything is provided for the comfort of the "guests". The owners even offer the use of their beach chairs and beach toys. The saline pool, at the house, is excellent and is wonderful for the skin. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to all beaches and local activities. The home, the pool, and the yard are in wonderful condition, and we feel it is like having a home away from home. I contacted Ted Rule on both occasions and could not ask for a better person to work with. He was available by e-mail or telephone and responded very quickly to questions we had. When we mention going to Florida, the first question from the family is " Did you get the house?" We would recommend this house to anyone looking for a vacation home in the Fort Myers area.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your kind words Sherrell. We were pleased to have you back as our guests, and really enjoy hearing that you enjoy our home as much as we do. We look forward to having you back again any time. Ted & Shirley

Wir möchten uns nochmals bedanken das wir unsere Ferien in eurem wundervollen haus verbringen durften. Wir waren alle begeistert vom haus , von der geschmackvollen Einrichtung, von der Ausstattung und vom wundervollen Pool. Das Haus liegt in einem sehr gepflegten Quartier, das es immer wieder eine Freude war zum Haus zurückzukehren. Sehr ruhig gelegen und doch nahe genug für Einkäufe oder Restaurant besuche.

Owner's reply: Translation as follows: We want to thank you once again for allowing us to spend our holiday in your wonderful home. We were all delighted with the house, from the tasteful décor and amenities to the wonderful pool. The home is in a very good neighborhood, it was a pleasure again and again to return to the home. Very quiet area, yet close enough for shopping or restaurant visits. Thanks Werner and family. You were great guests and we would love to have you back at any time

“Spacious home with great view out back”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2014

We spent 2 fantastic weeks at this wonderful vacation home. It felt like a "home away from home". We enjoyed the large size pool with a private scenic view. It's located in a well kept quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbours.

Owner's reply: The Fishers' were wonderful tenants, leaving our home in immaculate condition. We had to replace a damaged drainage line from the washing machine during their stay and we thank them very much for their patience and support in the enduring the couple of days of inconvenience it created. Super couple who are welcome back any time.

“Beautiful and confortable house”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

Just a few weeks ago, two of my daughters their husbands ,their children and myself stayed at this house for 2 weeks. The house is very comfortable, well equipped there is nothing you can possibly need that they don't have. Also the house is beautifully decorated. The pool is very large and very inviting, so inviting that we had a hard time getting the kids (10,12 13 and 14 years old) out of the pool every day. The owners were very accommodating and very nice to deal with. I would recommend anyone who wants to spend a nice and relaxing vacation to consider this house, you will also have many restaurants, beaches and entertainments near by. I think you will not regret it.

Owner's reply: Thanks very much for your kind words, and for taking such good care of it during your stay. Hope to host you again in the future.

“Family Vacation Dream”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2013

This house and location is ideal for a relaxing family vacation. We brought our daughters and their families with us on our Winter break vacation this year. We were all very pleased with everything. The furnishings throughout the house were excellent. The bedrooms were spacious and yet cozy. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to cook meals for our large group. The two dining areas and bar areas were put to use quite often. The pool was very nice. My Grandchildren did not want to leave to do anything else. My 9 year old Granddaughter said that was her favorite part of our entire 13 day trip was swimming at the house in the pool. She didn't include Disney, Sea World, Sanibel, or the beaches. It was the pool that did it for her! The landscaping at the house is also beautiful. This house is very well kept and cared for inside and outside. I would recommend it highly to anyone looking for a perfect getaway. My family made many happy memories there that will last us a lifetime!

Owner's reply: Bunti and her family were a delight to deal with and wonderful guests. The kind words are much appreciated.

I really enjoyed staying in this house for 3 months. Had a few problems that could happen anytime. This is a lovely house in a great neighbourhood and the neighbours were very friendly. I really enjoyed the pool. A good location if you are a golfer but if you like a beach it is a very busy drive lasting at least 35 to 40 minutes to any beach. I only got there 3 times in 3 months.

Owner's reply: First long rental we've had, and unfortunately the Satellite TV gave us a few headaches during Betty's stay. We have now installed a premier Prism Cable TV package...and it works great. The new home alarm system also experienced some 'hiccups' which have since been resolved. Betty and her family were wonderful guests, and I know the neighbours will miss her company. Ted and Shirley

“Just a perfect spot for family fun!”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2012

Two families shared this house for a spring break trip. The owner was amazingly easy to work with and very kind. We we so impressed with how clean and beautiful the house was. It was the first time I've really felt like we were renting from a friend. Never did we feel like you didn't want to eat off of a fork or sleep on a pillow. Everything was top notch! Even down to the pans and flatwear. The bedding was so comfortable. The layout was perfect for the two families. And the pool, WOW! It was HUGE and beautiful. We had a hard time convincing the kids to get out of it! Thanks to Ted for a wonderful vacation spot!

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure hosting you and yours Jennifer. So happy you feel the same about our 'winter haven' as we do. Love to have you back any time. Ted & Shirley.
