Overview

Fort Myers Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House - 3 bedrooms + convertible beds, 2 baths (sleeps 8)

Weekly Saturday to Saturday rental

Taffy Buoy is a recently decorated and newly furnished canal front home with a spacious pool, patio and heated spa. Be our guest and enjoy a home we hope provides all the facilities needed for a great vacation; a boat dock, WIFI, (tandem) Tarpon Wilderness kayak, bike, lots of water teeming with wildlife, including dolphins, manatees and leaping fish, and of course the white beaches of the gulf.

Taffy Buoy is decorated in a bright, coastal theme throughout. The first floor comprises an ample lounge, dining area, kitchen and master bedroom. The lounge has a 42' flat screen TV with DVD and convertible sofa bed. The dining room has seating for 8 at the table and 3 more at the bar. The fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and island has a sliding patio door onto the lanai and patio, through which the morning light floods in.

The master bedroom has a queen sized bed, closet and drawer storage, a 32' wall-mounted flat screen TV with built in DVD and a patio door leading out to the lanai, spa and views of the water beyond.

The upstairs comprises two bedrooms, light and brightly decorated they both have great views onto the canal and mangrove preserve. One bedroom has a queen size bed with wall mounted flat screen TV and the other has two twin beds (one with pull out that converts to sleep 2) and a wall mounted flat screen TV. Both upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom, located between.

The stand out feature of this home is the private, fenced in rear patio with huge pool deck and a proper sized pool - great for entertaining and relaxing! You can also dine outside or enjoy a drink at the wet bar under the screened-in lanai.

About Kim Kidd

A Welshman and Californian came together to discover the eclectic glory that is Fort Myers Beach. With 6 kids from ages 19 to 2.5, we find FMB and Taffy Buoy has something for all of us. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Kim Kidd purchased this house in 2012

Why Kim Kidd chose Fort Myers Beach

We first came here in 2009 and rented on this same street. Perhaps it was the sunset over the white sandy beach or the sight of a dolphin pod on the bay while kayaking, but we fell in love with the mixture of ecological beauty and vibrant down to earth life.

What makes this house unique

The front of the cottage is cute and welcoming but we fell in love with the beautiful rear patio. The private pool and dock with the timeless beauty of the mangrove preserve beyond did it for us, and that's before we saw our first fish jumping!

Great get away from the snow

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Its was the perfect location, the pool was fantastic & the neighbors were welcoming on this very quiet street. The Topp's grocery store at the beginning of the street was a real plus and so convenient. Dan also used the bikes to get take - out from all the restaurants that are close to the Taffy Boy. We are planning on returning soon. Jenny

Taffy Buoy is Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic vacation at Taffy Buoy on Fort Myers Beach!! They have truly thought of everything for the house: floaty toys and sand toys, bikes, kayaks, beach cart, cookie sheets, extra linens, fabulous beach theme decor, a wonderful layout and much more!

We also LOVED swimming in the pool every day, going to the beach only 3 blocks away, strolling through the Matanzas preserve and watching the people who live on the boats in the bay as they rode their dingies through the canal to Topps grocery store.

We will definitely be returning in the future and will recommend to everyone!

Thank you for your thoughtfulness and for everything, Kim, Anton and Debbie!

Kindest regards,

Rachel, Andrew, Sebastian and Sam

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed Taffy Buoy! Conveniently located to shopping & beach. It had everything our family needed for the perfect Christmas vacation.

It's location was perfect, with a very private back yard & pool area on the canal. We loved it!

Thanks so much for sharing this gem!

Taffy Buoy was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying at Taffy Buoy! The house was immaculate and the pool was fantastic! The amentities provided were more than enough to provide us all the comforts of home and we did feel right at home. The beach was a short walk (less than 3 blocks) and a short distance to Times Square. We often rode the trolley to Times Square, what a fun way to see the area and go shopping! Fort Myers Beach is always lovely, but staying at Taffy Buoy really made our vacation and we are now looking at booking the property for our next vacation. Highly recommended!

A special thank you to Kim, Anton and Debbie.

Awesome Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough good things about this home! It is located in a great location and everything one would want is right under one roof! The kayak was a hit, the wildlife amazing and seeing a dolphin swim down the canal was great! The owners are great to work with! We certainly felt at home! We especially appreciated that we could have brought our furry kid along if we had needed to!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words - there's nothing better than seeing a dolphin come down the canal or pass by the kayak. We hope you will bear us in mind if you come back to FMB again and perhaps see a manatee as well!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely lived our stay at Taffy Buoy. The house was great and just as advertised. The pool and got tub were a big hit and we loved taking the kayak out. All of the extras included were great, from beach toys to bikes we were not disappointed!

Map

Taffy Buoy is perfectly located mid-island, a five minute walk to the white sands of the gulf, a mile from the action at Time Square and yet at the same time, a secluded retreat far from the madding crowd. Also within a few minutes walk of the house are our local supermarket Topps, local liquor store behind it, the community park with pool, water slide, basketball courts, tennis courts, and playground, and Heavenly Biscuit, the best breakfast location on the island. Meanwhile all you hear at Taffy Buoy at night is the sound of nature.
