Our family purchased the home in 1995. We traveled to Ft Myer's Beach for many, many years and rented various properties before buying this home on the north end of the island. We do not get to visit Ft. Myer's as often as we would like. But, we are happy to open our home for others to enjoy through out the year.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

The north end of Ft. Myer's Beach is a quiet and more secluded area of the beach. Yet our home is not too far from the peir area. So, it is a close walk to shopping and restaurants.

Our home sits right on the beach and offers great views, lots of good times and plenty of great memories for families to enjoy for years to come.

Wonderful Beach Front Home!

My family stayed at the Sandbox right after Christmas of 2013 and spent our new years here. It was my husband and I, each of our parents, and our siblings. The location was absolutely perfect!!! You could walk down to the main square area and there was a lot to do there as far as eating and shopping. The listing description was very accurate regarding this location plus, it was RIGHT on the beach!
The property was very clean. The cleaning lady was there when we arrived but she let us put our stuff up and we just hung out on the beach while she finished up. This property could be updated. It's a little old looking but it was perfect for what we needed, it's nothing fancy though.
The owner was very helpful in answering questions and sent us extra information on what we could do.
I would recommend this property to others except, I would not say the place sleeps 10 comfortably. There are 3 bedrooms for adult couples and one bedroom with twin beds. The other "bed" was a pull out couch in the middle of the living room (no privacy) and would be best suited for children. My brother in law ended up having to sleep there and I felt really bad for him, his back gave him problems all week. That is my only complain about the place. There are 3 1/2 bathrooms so that is really nice! We had 3 adult couples and 3 other adults over age of 18 and we never felt crammed in this space.
If I were to recommend activities I'd say: scooters!!!! we had an absolute blast riding scooters all day one day. We also went on an everglades tour and that was really neat.

I would recommend this property to a friend or family and I think we may stay here again. If you are going to eat out every night I don't think you'd have to have a car to get around. You would have to take a taxi from the airport but wouldn't need a car to get to restaurants. If you plan to cook dinner then you'd need a car to get to the grocery store as it's way too far of a walk.

Owner's Response: It was made clear to this group (and every group) that this home DOES sleep 10 people. I often suggest to renters that the pull out be used for children because it is just that...a pull out. And many adults do not feel as comfortable sleeping on a pull out. Not sure why the renter feels our home needs to be updated. We have everything fully furnished and well updated. We have 5 flat screen televisions, beautiful Florida themed furniture, air conditioning, supplied linens and free wifi and cable television. Our home is clean, well stocked and we have never had any complaints about it being outdated. It is one of the largest homes on Ft Myers Beach and it is well suited for family vacationing.

Fabulous View/Great Location

This house not only has fabulous beach views, it is also in the perfect location. Walking distance to everything, but just far enough away to aviod crowds near you and on the beach. You step off the deck and are 30 seconds away from stepping in the water. We were pleasantly surprised to see a queen bed in the room that is showing as the den. This house actually has two master bedrooms - quite a plus when traveling with another couple. The layout is perfect - nice and open, roomy and with a constant view of the ocean. The house was also very clean and the manager was easy to work with. Highly recommend this house for vacationing in Fort Myers!!!

A Great Time!

We enjoyed our week long visit. Enjoyed the balcony overlooking the gulf and the cool breezes at night. The home had everything as stated and was well maintained. The owners were very pleasant and easy to deal with. Only complaint we had had not to do with the home, but rather that the gulf was not what we expected. The water was brown and dirty and were expecting blue Florida water. On the plus side though, the sand was clean and white and the home is only a few feet from the gulf. Again, the water had nothing to do with the home. Overall, we would stay there again and this is one of the best homes on the beach! The home was well maintained, the description is accurate. Citrola's Italian Food on the Square was excellent as well as the Seafood Restaurant on the water in the Square. The kids were able to rent jet skis only a few steps away from the home as well as parasailing. The kids also had fun crabbing at night with flashlights on the beach!Thank you for the GREAT time and memories made.

Great family vacation home!

Location, location, location! Within walking distance of most everything! Close to restaurants, bars, and shopping but away from everyday beach crowds. Any maintenance issues we faced were addressed immediately. The owner was great to work with. Hide a beds in fourth bedroom need replaced, but okay for kids.. Not fancy, but homey. W we loved our month there and are returning! I highly recommend renting this home! Loved the fact no pets allowed for those of us with family members with allergies.
