Overview

Fort Myers Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Main house - 4 full bathrooms, 4 bedrooms; (guest house 1 BR, 1 full bath )

This gorgeous beachfront home sits on Ft Myers Beach about mid island, with views of the Gulf of Mexico and Sanibel island directly from the 60 ft deck or pool area. There are 7 miles of white powdery sand to traverse on Ft Myers Beach - from the house either 3 miles south or 4 miles north for great jogging, walking or shelling. The two story home was completed in 2002 from a total renovation of an older home - basically torn down except for one wall and totally rebuilt and now including a second level. There are two bedrooms, both with full en-suite bathrooms on the second level. Both rooms have direct access to balconies that overlook the pool and beach area.

The ground level has two bedrooms, also with full en-suite bathrooms. One of these bedrooms also has direct access to the deck and pool/ beach area. The deck faces the Gulf waters, so to sit on the deck and observe the nightly sunset is almost religious.

The guest house is rented separately from main house, and rates quoted below are ONLY for the main house. Pricing on the guest house is $725 to 800/wk plus tax and cleaning in addition to the 4BR rates below..

About Buzz Ebner

The Ebner family operate children's camps in Connecticut every summer. For many years the family started coming down to Ft Myers Beach for mid winter vacations ( around 1958) We have seen the island grow from a 50% developed island to almost 100% in the last fifty years. Finally in the 80's, we decided to buy some beachfront property, because this is what we enjoyed the most. Our parents have since passed, but they also bought property on Ft Myers Beach and resided here year round except for a couple of summer months back in Connecticut. They looked after the waterfront homes we acquired, but we now have a full time beach manager that lives on the island and exclusively looks after our properties when we are not on the island. We have been in the home and apartment rental business for over thirty years and know what people like to find in renting a home or apartment whether it is for one week, one month, or several years. At one time recently, we operated and owned more than 300 rental units in Florida, Cape Cod Mass. and Connecicut. We are older and wiser now, and operate only about one dozen rental homes in Florida and Connecticut.

If you do decide to rent one of our homes, we hope you will treat it like your own and respect the items we have placed in the home for your comfort or enjoyment. We also welcome comments and suggestions either good or bad to make our homes more enjoyable for others to come in the future.....and hopefully for your return visit in the future as well.

Buzz Ebner purchased this house in 1987

Sherry and Buzz,

Just returned from our week at 5960 Estero. Loved it. Great accomodations. Great weather. The pool was fabulous. The dogs loved the beach. Went parasailing, dolphin watching, waverunning. Best dinner was at Flippers. South just over the bridge in Lovers Key Resort.

Regards,

Carl

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
**We actually checked in 12/25/11 but the form wouldn't let me backdate that far.
My 3 brothers and I stayed here at Christmastime a couple years ago with our families. It was a wonderful experience. Loved the house, the pool and the beach. Except for a couple trips to Publix and couple dinners out, we were thoroughly content to stay in the whole week! The guest house space allowed one family some extra space + kitchen that they needed at the time.
The pool and beach access were very secure and safe for our young kids and the kitchen and grill were more than adequate for preparing dinners in.
There was a little confusion over our check-in day but the property manager went WAY out of her way to sort it out.

House and property were clean and well maintained

  • 5 of 5
We had a beautiful family vacation at Fort Myers Beach. The home is comfortable and very clean. Our grandchildren enjoyed every day in the pool and playing on the beach. We enjoyed it so much, we will be back again in March of 2015. We took in a Twins baseball game, ate at a couple of water side restaurants, but, most of all, loved buying our own seafood, cooking at the house and watching the sunsets from our own deck. The owner and manager of the property were great to work with. We highly recommend this property for your vacation.

Owner's Response: Glad you and the grandkids enjoyed our home. We were there for six weeks at the beginning of the year, and the beach and sunsets never get old.
We look forward to having your family with us again next season.

Fabulous location, spacious and clean house

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a great location, spacious, clean and comfortable accommodations this is the place for you. The house is very comfortable with wifi access. The outdoor patio and pool area is perfect for morning coffee, afternoon sun and evening happy hour! The property also offers great beach access for long walks on the beach and the opportunity for 6 a.m. shelling expeditions. The location also offers a hop on the trolley for a short ride to Times Square and/or the grocery store. Santini Mall is a short walk away that has some nice stores and restaurants. My travel partners and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning next year.

Great Getaway Place

  • 4 of 5
Perfectly accommodated our group of 8 adults. Great location..quiet and across the street from the Catholic Church. The place was clean upon arrival. Debbie was friendly and helpful. Internet not working much of the week, but finally was restored late in the week. You may think, " Who needs Internet on vacation?", but...... We cooked all our meals and mostly ate on the deck, except for one VERY windy day. The inside table worked out just fine then. Kitchen very small but the basics were there. Who needs to eat out when friends are chopping and stewing right alongside you? Publix was very convenient, and we found and tried several seafood shops. Having our own pool was a treat! Beach in the morning, pool in the afternoon, and cocktails on the beach at sunset. Washer and dryer very new. Towels and beach towels abundant. Some of the bed linens seemed old and tired, and the twin beds upstairs are not as new/comfy as they could be. But all in all, a great time with great friends!

Owner's Response: we are glad the St Louis group enjoyed our home. We have had a few notes from people staying at our home for the last couple of weeks and we certainly appreciate the comments. When we are not living in our home all the time, some things do need repairs or updating.
we have already replaced the twin beds upstairs with new beds and frames. We also saw that the dishwasher was not cleaning well, and just replaced that as well.
Thank you visitors/ guests for helping us to maintain this wonderful home to be the best one on the beach.

Fort Meyers Beach

  • 1 of 5
The factual information about the house was right. The property today is not well maintained and clean.
Comunication with the owner and the help at the house was a big dissapointment
The sandy beach is not there anymore by no fault to the owner.
I would not recomend the house today to anyone.

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 of 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.
