Overview

Fort Myers Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

The Bungalow has been booked solid for the past 3 years...rather says it all!

'The BEST vacation experience in Florida'...... Bungalow guest.

If we are booked, check out our other Bungalow!! Kathy's Tropical Beach Bungalow. Homeaway.com/919241,VRBO.com/414611

Duncan's Tropical Beach Bungalow is one of the 'coolest' homes in Southwest Florida. Perfect for a honeymoon, anniversary, or, romantic getaway. The 'Bungalow' has the feel of the islands with solid yellow pine and Mexican tile floors, high end West Indies style furnishings, Florida plantation shutters, crown molding in every room, gourmet kitchen...even an outdoor shower adjacent to the master bath for a unique shower under the stars.

French doors open onto a literal 'jungle' of palm (over 170) and banana trees, two sandy beaches bordering the oversize solar heated pool. Wriggle your feet in the sand, take a dip in the oversize solar heated pool, or, take a nap in the hammock. The vegetation is so dense, you can skinny dip in complete privacy. You would never guess you were surrounded by civilization. Two butterfly gardens are home to numerous species...

Everyone without exception has loved the Bungalow...close to everything. Please read our quests' reviews...

Should you be a TV or movie fan, the Bungalow offers 50 plus movies for you to enjoy on the new 47' H D flat screen TV

Just add freshly popped popcorn.The Bungalow is WI-FI equipped; stay connected while sunbathing in the hammock.

We welcome furry 4 legged creatures and the 'jungle' is completely fenced so they can run free. We simply ask that you behave as responsible pet owners...

Located in the historic McGregor Blvd. district of Fort Myers, Duncan's Tropical Beach Bungalow is conveniently located to our famous beaches, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel/Captiva Islands, about 20-25 minutes; Regional SW Int'l airport is 25 minutes away.

We opened our 'paradise retreat' to guests in January 2009. Numerous guests have returned 2 and three times...One couple recently returned for the 4th time...pretty much says it all!

We realize that our prices are substantially below market for similar properties, (if you could find one) ...we also suspect that once you experience our lifestyle, you will be back, or, at least...recommend us to your friends.

Should we be booked, ask about our newest Bungalow, Kathy's Tropical Beach Bungalow. Awesome property.

Cheers,

duncan

About Allen Duncan

Creating the 'Bungalow' has been a labor of love.My talented friend Hartmann did magic with the interior, 'green thumb' Annie supervised creating the 'Jungle'...over 150 palms, banana, and bamboo, two butterfly gardens, and an all natural irrigation system. Daughter Kathy contributed the two Sand beaches poolside.

Everybody loves the Bungalow....I love my job as innkeeper and yard man...

Ciao,

duncan

Great expectations, not disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

Duncan's paradise is in a quiet residential district, with a whole range of attractions, shopping and restaurants within a short driving distance. Duncan himself was very efficient and helpful, and did everything possible to make our stay a success. The property fully lives up to its description as a very private tropical paradise and we thoroughly enjoyed what amounted to a private beach in the garden. For us, the many highlights in the area included the Edison-Ford Estate, the Six Mile Cypress Slough and canoeing the Estero River from near the Koreshan State Park.

For 4 winters our "home away from home"

  • 5 of 5

Duncan's bungalow has been our "home away from home" for the last four winters. The bungalow and its unique back yard and pool make it feel like your own tropical paradise. It offers complete privacy for a very quiet, restful vacation. We have enjoyed bicycling and walking on the neighborhood bike trail. Our stays have been made especially pleasant because Duncan is a wonderful host and has become a dear friend of ours. He is always available to recommend great restaurants and places of interest during your stay. Sanibel and Fort Myers beach are just a short drive away. This season we decided it was time to buy our own Fort Myers home, but we will always love and highly recommend Duncan's Tropical Bungalow!

Owner's Response: I have the world's greatest job. Tending the Bungalow for great guests who often become best friends. Dealing with 170+ palms and 2 sand beaches is a lot of work, but it is all worth it. We have been booked solid now for 3 years with many guests returning 3 or more times. Thank you all for making my contribution so meaningful, duncan

Very nice place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Bungalow is absolutely beautiful! The pool area is so relaxing and the neighborhood is very quiet. The pictures on the website of the house really don't do it justice. The house has all the comforts of home and you literally only need to bring clothes and food. The owner was great to work with and always responded quickly to all of my questions. The beaches are very close. We visited two great outlet malls (Tanger and Miromar) and also went to Coconut Point shopping mall. Two restaurants that we really enjoyed were Rib City, (which is very close to the Bungalow) and Mel's diner, (which is in Bonita Springs). Mel's has an awesome breakfast! Make sure you also go to the Flamingo Island flea market which is only open on Fri., Sat., & Sun. I would recommend the Bungalow to anyone. You definitely won't be sorry for staying here! In fact, we have already rented the place again for next year!

This bungalow is our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Such serenity and comfort in the middle of Ft. Myers. We love our times at the bungalow. The backyard pool and beach is heavenly. The location is perfect and the landlord is awesome. His attention to his renters is exceptional. This was our second year visiting and it won't be our last! Can not wait! AND the photos on line do not do it justice, the place is even better than what you see! P.S. Check out the Fish Mongrel Restaurant...yummo!

Owner's Response: The most sincere and genuine form of flattery for an innkeeper is to have guests return when they have 500+ other accommodation choices in the area. Today, July guests booked July 2015... the beginning of an anniversary tradition...Wow!...it JUST does not get better than that....Thank all of you!
