Our newly renovated home is a 5 min walk to the beach! We completely remodeled with all new; tile flooring, cabinets, bathrooms, quartz counter tops, furniture and stainless steel appliances. Relax in the sunny, screened in, heated pool! This spacious ranch is 2200 sq. ft. on a half acre property with fruit trees. The master bedroom has a king bed with bathroom, dressing room, flatscreen HDTV with BluRay/DVD and sliding glass doors that open to the pool. The second has a queen bed, walk in closet and flat screen HDTV. The third has two twin beds.
Enjoy the comfy leather sofas while watching large flat screen cable HDTV with BluRay/DVD. The dining, family room and kitchen all have great views of the private tropical pool area. There is high speed WiFi. There are 4 bikes, beach chairs, cart, umbrella, cooler & toys. The house is located in a friendly neighborhood with quiet streets, yet is close to great restaurants, shops, bike paths, Captiva, and wildlife preserve.
Non smoking home
Our ranch home has no stairs, making it easier to get around.
Love the area and your place. Had a great time watching the waves go in and out. Very relaxing. We had a wonderful time!
We love the beach, shelling, swimming, fishing & bicycling. Dolphins can be seen swimming along the shore. Red Sox & Twins spring training games and the Edison & Ford Estates (all in nearby Ft Myers) are fun outings too!
The beach is so close & uncrowded. Captiva is a 10 min drive away. Fun restaurants & shops, bike trails, wildlife cruises & preserves are nearby. The neighborhood is quiet & friendly. You can hear the waves at night from the open master sliding glass doors.
We love the views of the private pool area from so many of the rooms. The palms and bougainvillea surrounding the pool are so tropical! You can hear the waves at night. I love the sliders that open to the pool from the master bedroom.
'Island Escape' is a 5 min walk to the Gulf beach, famous for shelling. You can often see dolphin swimming along the shore, and the sunsets are gorgeous! Periwinkle is 5 min away where many interesting restaurants and shops are. You can explore delightful Captiva Island, just 10 min away. Many water sports rentals are available, such as windsurfing and parasailing. You can explore close by Ding Darling Wildlife Reserve by Tram Tours or on your own. Tarpon Bay also offers cruises with a naturalist guide and kayak & canoe rentals. Historical & Shell Museums, live theaters, cinema, library and the lighthouse are other local attractions. The hike & bike trails that cover the island are also close to 'Island Escape.' The marina offers cruises, dolphin watching, fishing and boat rentals. Across the causeway, Ft Myers has many attractions, such as the Edison and Ford Estates, and the Red Sox and Twins spring training games. You can do it all, or you can relax on the quiet & friendly beaches!
Other Activities: We love the beach the best. Shelling quickly becomes an addiction! The Ding Darling Wildlife Reserve tram tours are fun because we enjoy learning about the habits and quirks of the many birds, animals, and alligators. Bring your binoculars! Biking or walking on the bike trails is always a family favorite. Sometimes we even spot an alligator along the fresh water canals! We like to take company to Doc Fords, Key Lime Bistro, Pink Flamingo and the Timbers restaurants. There are more I could list- each has it's own unique ambience! The men like to fish off the beach or rent a boat to go out for grouper or snapper. While at the marina stop in & soak up the view at Gramma Dots. We like to rent kayaks on Tarpon Bay and paddle around the Mangroves. Wear polarized sunglasses to better see the activity under the water! Other favorites are water sports rentals, cruises, two live theaters, shopping, spas, and parasailing. [You Only Live Once!] Then, back to the pool or beach with a good book :)
Golf: Golfers on every level can have a good time here. The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club has water on all 18 holes. Touring pro Mark McCumber redesigned it in 1995 with an emphasis on chipping. The Beachview Golf & Tennis Club has waterways, open fairways and lush palm & fruit trees. Both are 14 min drive away. Make reservations at least 4 days in advance.
