We are retired school teachers who split our time between the beach cottage and a place about an hour away on Pine Island.

Tom and Carolyn Crosby purchased this cottage in 2000

Tom moved to Ft Myers in 1988 to teach 3rd grade at a school in Immokalee. In 1992. He left to teach in Venezuela but kept returning to Fort Myers Beach every summer for his vacations. In 2000 the owner of the house we had been renting on the beach for the past 8 years almost sold their house. Upon hearing this we went out and bought Little Pink to have a little piece of the unique bit of paradise called Fort Myers Beach.

A comfortable home very close to many amenities but yet located in a quiet part of Fort Myers Beach.

COMPLETE PARADIES!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 weeks in this charming Cottage, and is was the best place for having quiet and comfortable beach vacation. We loved cooking in this very nice kitchen and if you look out the porch you can see the ocean. The cottage was very well equipped with everything we needed. We love to come back next year.
Thank you Carolyn and Tom for having great vacations in your cottage.

RELAX AT THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is so charming, clean and well cared for. The owners, Tom and Carolyn are so accommodating and we had everything we needed for our week stay. The beds were so comfortable, the deep claw foot tub was wonderful. We relaxed and read books in the hammocks on the screened in porch every day and enjoyed eating our meals on the deck. The beautiful white sand beach was just a short walk away. We went shelling and watched the gorgeous sunsets. We watched the dolphins feed close to the shore and found live starfish that were washed ashore. I highly recommend this cottage and plan to return in the future.

IF ONLY I COULD BUY IT...

  • 5 of 5
Skip the condos and stay in the real deal.
This place has been completely renovated and has everything you could want.
I stepped out on to the very large porch each morning for breakfast, walked 20 steps to the beach and watched dolphins swimming (every single morning) and took afternoon naps in the hammock.

There are two perfect bathrooms and a marvelous kitchen (granite tops and even a blender!). Wifi, ceiling fans and A/C that never falters. There are even outside showers!

Thanks Tom & Carolyn! See you next year!!

EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
We did spend a great week in "Little pink"; it is well equipped, Overall above average compared with "standard" in most houses. Nice Kitchen and ideal for a Party of four People, either two couples or a Family with Kids (which we are). The Kids enjoyed our stay and we say THANK YOU! All went fine, absolutely to be recommended for those who love traditional Beach-Holidays...with breakfast on the terrace.

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the pink cottage. The house is very clean, nicely decorated, with everything you need. The beach is very close and the little path to go there is very safe for kids. We loved also the public library and the community pool, just around the corner. Thank you Carolyn and Tom to make us feel at home in your lovely cottage. Christine and Bertrand.

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Little Pink was the perfect beach vacation destination. The cottage was just steps away from the beach and located in a very desirable beach area. The property was well kept and it was supplied with everything you would need to make your stay comfortable. The newly remodeled kitchen and bathrooms were wonderful. We especially liked the close proximity to some great restaurants and shopping.

Thank-you Tom and Carol for sharing your cottage with those looking for a great vacation destination! We will be sure to return soon!

Fort Myers Beach is a barrier island 3 hours from Orlando and 2.5 hours from Tampa or Miami. The island has a very laid back, relaxed feel with good restaurants, bars, live music and the full range of water sport activities. There is a gambling boat and a Key West ferry that leave out of Ft Myers Beach.
