About Alicia Bertschinger

We are a Swiss family that love the ocean. This beach front cottage is our second home.

Why Alicia Bertschinger chose Fort Myers Beach

We always dreamed of a beach front property, this is our dream come true!

What makes this house unique

We love going for long walks on the beach, especially at sunset and crescent beach has the most divine sunsets. We also enjoy watching dolphins, birds etc. Our children like the location, close to restaurants and bars. Fun location for young people.

Depends on what you are looking for......

  • 2 of 5
Good: If you are just looking for a house on the beach/close to downtown, the house will meet your needs. The house has nice wood floors, a big kitchen, comfortable mattresses, & plenty of beach/bath towels.

Bad: When we arrived, the main side door key code was broken so to enter the house you had to use the back door. An email was sent to say it would be fixed in 1-2 days, but no one came. This wasn't a big deal except there was no outdoor lighting. We had to use our cell phone light to enter the code to open the door. You had to have the 9 digit code on you at all times if the door closed. We tried to change the code to something easier to remember (per instructions), but that didn't work either.

When we arrived, the tv did not work. We were on the phone with the cable provider for 45 minutes to get it to work. The cable provider stated the box was old & the cable package was the most basic of basic cable packages. We are big sports fans so not having ESPN/sports channels was a big disappointment. The owner did agree to pay for an updated package for the week, but the billing was complicated so we just decided it was easier to pay it ourselves. This may not be a big deal for some, but it was for us.

The beachfront "sliding" doors/windows DO NOT open at all. They are sealed shut. We were told this was for safety purposes. Then why is there no functional outdoor lighting for safety purposes?

There is a Hooters directly in back of the house. When we arrived, there were people hanging out in the parking lot, but it was quiet the rest of the week besides the loud early morning food/beer delivery trucks on several mornings.

Very few of the light switches were connected to the light fixtures. When we first entered the house, there was a broken toilet paper holder sitting on the table which doesn't make for a good first impression.

There is a beach chair rental place next door which was not pretty. At around 10AM every morning, the music came on. Luckily it was mostly 80s music which we like. However, at around 3PM, the music of Korn, Rob Zomby, etc came on. Some quiet time during the day on the deck listening to the ocean would have been nice.

Beach chairs are not provided. There were only broken tables under the house along with a dirty diaper found under one of them (not joking).

Some will feel this house is perfectly fine, but I wanted to let others know of our experience & just some of the issues we had with this house.

New Year's On the Beach

New Year's On the Beach

The house had the perfect location for our family. We could have not asked for better weather, mid 70s to low 80s all week! We loved the fact there was NO carpet in the house making the sand easier to vacuum up. It was nice to look out at the ocean as you were standing at the stove cooking. Louie's rental is right next door and willing to assist with chairs and umbrellas. Jet skis, banana boat, parasailing, etc., are all in front of the house. There are is a beer garden three doors down to the right, another a couple places down to the left. Hooters is literally behind you. The square is about a 10 minute or less walk, we enjoyed walking down for dinner then walking it off back to the house. Yucatans and Steamer's Oyster Brewery (SOB) were our two favorites.

Fantastic beach house with amazing sunsets

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved the beach house. It was sparkling clean and beautifully furnished. The views out on to the sea were just what we needed and the sunsets were amazing from the deck. We couldn't get any closer to the beach, the house is right on the sand and we had our own private piece of sand in front of the house that the chap from the sunbed hire kindly put two sunbeds and a sunshade there for us. Parking was great too, right at the side of the house. We could walk up the beach or the road and find restaurants and bars in both directions. All in all, we had a beautifully relaxing holiday. Thank you for having us.
