Overview

Fort Myers Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Experience the beauty and tranquility of Fort Myers Beach from a furnished private house on the canal. Two bedroom, one with a new posturepedic king-size bed and one with twin beds. Fully equipped kitchen; utility room with washer and dryer and solar heated screened in pool. Furnished in casual island style just across the street from seven miles of beautiful sandy beaches.

Convenient to restaurants, shops, movie theater and golf. Shell Gas station, Colonial Bank, Island Hair Gallery, 7-11 within a block. Located at the southern end of the island, this house is the perfect retreat for couples and families. Close enough to water sports, fishing and shopping. Everything is within reach yet this home is in a quiet area with residents, Royal Palm Trees and warm ocean breezes. At the end of the street is Charley's Boat House Grill which has been a local favorite for over 25 years. Also we are close to the Outrigger.

Forget your watch at home, bask in the sun, walk the beach, and enjoy the tropical flowers on Fort Myers Beach where tomorrow will be just as tough!

Karen,

Just a quick note to say we had a great time. The cottage is very nice, you have it furnished beautifully, it's well maintained and clean. I will tell my friends about it and I'll come back again.

The weather was great so we enjoyed the pool & beach.

Thanks again

Deb

About The Owner

We bought this house for retirement as it is small, cute, and cozy. It is about 900 sq. ft. and has everything we need including a dock and the canal so we have easy access to fishing. We are now at retirement age and still feel the same way after many visits to the island. Our cottage is all on the ground level, we have 7-11 at the end of the street, our own beach access and plenty of privacy in our lanai if we just want to lounge by the pool.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Fort Myers Beach

I think the weather was the deciding factor. We are from the Midwest and here in Minnesota, summer is too short. The flowers and the palm trees are so therapeutic that we couldn't resist. We also like the mid-island location as we can access the South end bridge or the North end bridge so it is very convenient.

What makes this house unique

We have all the comforts of home. We like to think that we have covered all the details and we know our guests appreciate the amenities that we have to make their vacation special.

Karen,

I stayed at your Beach Bungalow at beautiful Ft. Myers Beach the first

week of March. I'm an amateur photographer and took about 400 photos

while I was there, one of which I submitted to the Star Tribune website

for their gallery of vacation photos. Well, they printed it in the Travel

Section of yesterday's paper (Sunday May 17th). It made me very happy to

be able to share my vacation memories with the paper's readers. Here's a

copy for your enjoyment. Feel free to use it anyway you wish to market

your wonderful beach house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was in the 90's every day. We had nothing planned just took each day as a blessing to be together. It was nice to sit by the pool or on the dock. The fishing was bad--caught only one all week. Great restaurants we discovered. Charley's Boat House, Sunflower Café and the "kitchen table".

Other thoughts to share: You have a piece of paradise here. Every room is nicely furnished and the kitchen was well equipped.

Great little home and pool. Wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an enjoyable time. The beach is so close and the sand is so white. The catholic church is a short walk. Check out the sunsets every night. The home has everything you could need such as: blender, coffee maker, crock pot, bowls, toaster, washer and dryer. It only lacked a dishwasher. Publix is also really close.

The area is quiet. Neighbors are friendly if you need any information. Owners responded quickly to our questions. They also have great bicycles to rent. The pool heated up really fast during the day as most of our days were in the low 70's and the nights were chilly. No airconditioning needed.

We highly reccomend this home.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We took our 1 year old and had a great stay! Place was clean and Karen responded to any questions quickly. Just a few minutes to walk to the beach. Only disappointing thing was it was cool in the evenings so the pool was never quite warm enough to swim. Would stay again in the future!

The location was great, the house was well equipped, the beach was beautiful and so were the sunsets. For a wonderfully relaxing vacation this is the perfect place. The neighbors were really friendly also.

So relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Karen's fab little home, the only downside was that it wasn't long enough!

It is well stocked with useful 'home away from home' items that you don't find in every vacation rental, we loved the location and enjoyed the walk along the beach to times square and the majority of the bars/restaurants (It is about an hour's leisurely walk, but lovely to be on the beach admiring the gorgeous coastline and some of the houses overlooking it!) We also made use of the trolley (great!) and did get a taxi on one occasion after dinner out, and it was a very reasonable $9 back to the house.

The pool is quite small, not intended for laps, but perfect for a dip to cool off in the florida sun, and you are literally across the road from the beach!

Karen was lovely, extremely helpful in dealing with my numerous emails.

Highly recommend the food at the Beached Whale, the shrimp tacos were divine and probably my favourite meal of the entire holiday!

Notes:
Fort Myers Beach: Welcome to the beautiful barrier islands of Fort Myers Beach-Estero Island and San Carlos Island – where the sun shines nearly every day and the average temperature is 74 degrees. Beaches are probably the No.1 attraction, with the turquoise blue to bright green waters of the Gulf of Mexico lapping at the silky, white sands and seashells – for the collector in everyone. Called the “world’s safest beach”, it’s an ideal site for family vacations, for there are no steep drop-offs, riptides or undertows. Everywhere you go, wildlife is abundant. Shore birds such as egrets,pelicans,spoonbills,seagulls and herons are found near every body of water, from the gulf to the back bay. Sometimes, even the bald eagle can be spotted soaring over our islands. Fishing and boating are popular pastimes for residents and visitors alike – there are even restaurants you can get to by boat for lunch on (or near) the high seas. Yes, the comforts of civilization are evident as well. The m
