FT. MYERS BEACH - GULF/BEACHFRONT WITH HEATED POOL

Fort Myers Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 4 full baths plus outside pool shower, sleeps 8 persons

Private heated pool home directly on the beach and Gulf waters. Watch the dolphins from the deck or the kids in the great 30' beachfront swimming pool. Fantastic white powder sand beach. Home has Wifi internet . Golf, fishing, boat rentals, restaurants and tennis all close by. Any closer to the Gulf you would be living on a houseboat.

Home is walking distance to several restaurants as well as the local movie theater. just 3/4 mile to local golf course.

It doesn't get any better than this for beachfront relaxation - no street noise as this home is on a dead end street - but still beachfront.

Nothing is more relaxing than watching the dolphins frolic right from the deck in the morning or viewing that slowly setting western sunset touch the edge of the Gulf's horizon in the evening.....right from the deck off the living room.

this home is one of the few beachfront homes with a beachfront pool directly on the beach. it is somewhat secluded with the seagrass that must be allowed to grow by law. There is a 30ft wide patch of clean sand next to the pool & viewable from the deck for the kids to play in close to the house. 100feet out from the house, the white powdery Ft Myers Beach sand that FMB it is so famous for can be found for 3 1/2 miles in either direction. This is a fantastic jogging or walking beach, super for sea shell collectors ( one must be mindful of the limits for shells and no live ones to be collected), and for those into water sports there are wave runners/ sailboats/ and parasailing for use and hire all along the beach area. If you are a biker, there are also bike rentals that can be rented by the day or week. If the Gulf attracts you for the fishing, there is good fishing right from the beach, or there are numbers of boats for hire at any of the five marinas on the island. Group party boats are also an option and leave daily from the marinas both full day and half day fishing.

this home is also close to walk two to four blocks to stores, restaurants, and even the local movie theater. There is also a 50 cent trolley that runs north and south on the island to take you to other shopping areas ( Publix supermarket), or other strip malls on the north and south ends of the island. If you continue on the trolley off the island, you can be connected with the city transit lines of Ft Myers proper.

About Buzz Ebner

We have been coming to Ft Myers Beach since the late 50's. A lot has changed since then. This home was considered the end of the island of inhabitable homes back then, and now it is about mid island. This home was completely renovated with new kitchen and bathrooms along with tile floors back in 2002. In addition, we added an inground pool which is what most families wanted for the little ones, especially during the winter months - and yes it is heated. The best thing about this home that we liked was that it was on a dead end street, away from any kind of traffic and noise, yet the street parallels the beach with beachfront properties.

Our family has been in the home and apartment rental business for over thiry years renting homes and apartments in Florida, Cape Cod Mass., and Connecticut. Today, we are down to about one dozen homes that we manage both in Florida and Connecticut. We do have a full time beach manager that looks after our homes on Ft Myers beach, and you will meet her when you check into one of our homes.

Buzz Ebner purchased this house in 1988

Subject: Ebner house

Hi there,



My husband, Jan, just sent you a lengthy email, telling you of our experiences at the Ebner's Fort Myers Beach vacation rental home. I wanted to reiterate that our stays there have always been terrific. We have never had any problems and have always found the Ebners and Debbie, the on site manager, to be most helpful and approachable.



We have stayed at their property during wonderful weather and cooler, stormy days. The great thing is, regardless of Mother Nature, the views are always wonderful and terrific shopping, nature preserves and excellent restaurants are any a short drive away...great eating places even within walking distance!



If you have any questions, feel free to email us and we'll give you as much information as we can.



Best regards from Canada,



Susan (Vink)

Great View, Spacious Home, Great Customer Service

  • 5 of 5
Two large patio doors to the Gulf provide a great view from all of the common areas of this home. The open layout of this house provides ability to keep everyone connected. Bedrooms are spacious and the home is very well cared for with prompt response from the caretaker (a wonderfully friendly woman) if you even have questions. Beautiful beach and the addition of the fenced pool provided privacy and a break from the cool breezes in the a.m. or p.m. A section of the patio is covered so even when raining you can enjoy the outdoors,
Spending the week there with my 4 sisters we enjoyed being just off the main street but minutes away from restaurants, shopping, etc. We will definitely return for another sister vacation in this home.
South Beach Restaurant was one of our favorites with early specials both at the bar and for dining. That same complex has a fabulous bathing suit shop!! Armondo's is the place to go for an outstanding massage that they will customize to your needs.
We can't wait to return!!!

BEST SPOT ON THE BEACH!!

  • 5 of 5
This winter will be our 3rd year staying in this WONDERFUL home! If you are not familiar with Fort Myers Beach, then let me tell you, this really is the best spot on the beach. PRIVACY, CLEANLINESS, SPACIOUS...all the accomodations for a dream vacation. We have been visiting Fort Myers Beach with our 4 children for the past 10+ years and have finally found the home that we will stay in for every future visit. THIS IS IT!! The 4 bathrooms are very convienient and clean. The linens are new, and fresh. The property caretaker is very helpful if there is anything that you should need. Truly all you will need is some TIME to enjoy this beautiful home and island! It is a 5+++star!

Owner's Response: we are glad to hear others enjoy our house as much as we do. We think our home is 5star +++, but often there might be a few things that are just not right for some families.
We are glad that you have enjoyed the house over the years, and believe me we will be here and available for winter rentals for many more seasons to come.
thanks again for your patronage. We enjoy having satisfied families that enjoy the beach as much as our family does.

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent two weeks at the Gulf Road beach house in the spring of 2011. The weather was great, the beach was beautiful and the Gulf warm enough to swim in every day! The lovely sandy shoreline has a gentle slope so it's safe for young children and the beach goes for miles so you can get a good daily walk. If shelling is your thing you can find all sorts of rare and interesting varieties along the beach. 
The house is well-equipped, clean, comfortable, roomy and is located close to grocery stores and restaurants. The deck and pool have a wonderful view of the beach and one could relax there all day happily. The sunsets from the deck are spectacular. The woman who looks after the property was extremely helpful with all our questions and recommended some great local restaurants.

We would highly recommend the property and can't wait to return in 2012!

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5
My two sisters, nephew and I stayed at the Ebner rental property from September 10-17, 2011. We were very impressed with the accommodations! We found the house very comfortable and clean. It had lots of room, fully equipped kitchen and free internet (the internet helped with decisions of what to do and where to eat). Each morning we walked down to the beach, collected shells and swam in the Gulf. The beach was very clean,the sand was extremely soft. The Gulf water was warm with little rolling waves. After a full day of sightseeing we relaxed in the swimming pool. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm with temps above 80 degrees. We BBQ on the deck and watched the sunsets. The sunsets off the deck overlooking the Gulf are spectacular. We went shopping for gifts down in the Times Square shopping center. We found the prices to be very reasonable, as it was off season. While in Times Square we took advantage of the lack of crowds and went parasailing and rented jet skis. We also took one day and drove down to the everglades and had a blast on the airboat ride, we saw plenty of alligators, pelicans and a raccoon! We were sad to leave, but have already decided we will be back next year. Thank you for a great vacation Tricia, Meg, Karen and Christopher.

Owner's Response: Glad the family enjoyed the weather, the beach, and of course our home. We have a local beach manager that looks after the house almost daily to make sure everything is in order. So we look forward to your family group returning again next year.

Sea, sand and sun

  • 5 of 5
It"s the third time we came in Fort Myers for summer holidays and it's the best location we found.
The place is fantastic, very quiet, seaview always present, the pool so nice and easy with young children.
Teenagers can be free to choose pool or sea and parents keep watch.
The house is very spacious and clean even it needs a cooling.The bathrooms are very well.
All our family spent a great time in this house.

We have specific information on our home website (which we send to you after initial inquiry) as to names and contact numbers for most of the places of interest on the island.

For day entertainment, there are all sorts of rentals around the island and directly on the beach for bikes, baby beach strollers, wave runners, parasailing, and kayak tours around the island. If you are in to motorbikes or motorcycles, there are rentals for those as well as small electric fiberglass electric cars.

FMB also has two grocery stores on island - Topps and the larger of the two ....Publix Market about mid island.

We have dozens of really good restaurants all on the island, and many more off island. Fishing is a prime industry from the island with one the largest shrimping pier areas in the southwest corner of Florida. You can buy right at the pier for really fresh and delicious shrimp and fish selections. With five marinas on the island, there are many captains to choose from for daily charters or group charter boat excursions for fishing. You might also be interested in renting a boat to captain yourself from a boston whaler style boat to an inboard with seating up to 12. Perhaps even a pontoon party boat to just cruise around the back bay area to watch local wildlife including manatees and dolphins, or just crusing from island to island along the coast. On the island and within a ten minute drive to other islands there are numerous wildlife protected areas to view the birds, gators, manatees, and the fantastic shell life that is always abundant on these south west islands of Florida. Make sure to check out the Ding Darling reservation on Sanibel, Shell Mound historic area, and Lovers Key state park for excellent shelling and marine life.

There is even a nine whole golf course on the island ( was 18 before condos became more lucrative). On the southern part of the island there is a 4 screen movie theater that also serves meals and beer/wine during shows. For more evening entertainment there is the offshore gambling cruise that goes out to the 3 mile limit and opens their casino for offshore gambling. You can also enjoy dinner on board as well as music and dancing from the onboard entertainment. An additional offshore excursion is the high speed ferry that loads at Ft Myers Beach marina and travels in approximately 2 1/2 hours to 3 to Key West. Much easier than driving, and you can return the same day or stay over and return the next evening.

Going off the island there is just about anything you can imagine in the localized Ft Myers Area and greater region. There are numerous outlet centers within 20 to 30 minute drives. The malls located in Ft Myers proper are numerous and cover just about any budget and interest area. During the mid winter time, there is sport action with two winter baseball teams residing in Ft Myers - the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox ( two separate stadiums). And yes, there is still dog racing at the Bonita Springs Track just 20 minutes away.

Tampa is within 2 1/2 hours away for the Bush Gardens entertainment area, and then Orlando about the same time north of Ft Myers for Disney, Universal Studios, Sea World, and many more.

If you are heading off to or coming from a cruise, Ft Myers Beach is again only a 2 1/2 hour drive from the Ft Lauderdale and Miami shipping ports for the cruise ships.

South of Ft Myers Beach is one of the nicest zoos on the East Coast - The Naples Zoo. But please wander around the Naples area as this is also a fabulous home viewing area as well as superb shopping districts and perhaps even take in the local dinner/ theatrical performance night club.
