KEY WEST STYLE HOME ON PRISTINE 2.5 ACRES - DOGS WELCOME

Fort Myers House Rental Photos and Description

We have an 800 square foot 'lock off' apartment on the first floor of our Estate Home. Share breathtaking views from the second floor 1100 square foot wraparound porch overlooking a manicured park like setting. Join a multitude of birds and squirrels who also share the front porch providing endless entertainment for nature lovers. Move to the back porch to cook out on the gas grill or sit in the hot tub and watch the herons, hawks and the occasional eagle fly through the 2 acre back yard complete with a bass pond which is sought out by the local otters from time to time. Cigar aficionados will love these covered spaces and views to relax by. Plenty of room for your boat or RV.

The property is covered with numerous palms, pine, oak and moss covered cypress trees, to name just a few, providing the perfect backdrop to beautiful sunsets. The Six Mile Cypress Slough is a few minutes walk from the house.

The first bedroom is nicely furnished with a Dual Control Sleep Number Queen bed, dresser, Prism TV/DVD player and a view of the fountain in the Florida Room.

The second bedroom is set up as a comfortable sitting room complete with a leather rocker/recliner, sitting chair, day bed and a 32 inch flat screen TV equipped with High Definition Century Link Prism which also provides high speed internet.

The efficiency kitchen is admittedly small but has an 18 cubic foot refrigerator/freezer, microwave, sink and a small oven with two burners. Sorry, but there is no dishwasher. Baby boomers should still remember how to wash dishes by hand.

The laundry room is shared with the owner and has a Duet front loading washer and dryer as well as a closet for pantry items, etc. There is one full bathroom with a shower/tub.

The Florida room features a wall of glass windows overlooking the gorgeous front yard. The circular dining table/chairs and two rockers take full advantage of the views and sounds emanating from the water fountain surrounded by plants...a calming atmosphere.

Paula and I have always loved two story Key West Style homes with their wraparound porches but didn't want to move to the Islands where they are prevalent. We finally found this beautiful 2.5 acres in 1993 and knew it would be perfect for our dream home. We completed the home the following year and as our children are grown and gone, would like to share it's beauty with others.

Daniel Grahl purchased this house in 1994

We love to sit on the second story porches and visit with friends, swapping jokes and stories. As we have lived in Fort Myers since 1979, coming from Indiana, we can offer insights to the Gold Coast of Florida. My best friend calls our home, Shangra La, for good reason. We are also Dog lovers and welcome any visitor with canines under 25 pounds.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE:)

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed here at the end of April for my golf tournament at Cypress Lake GC. We chose this property, because it is pet friendly. The owners ( Dan and Paula) are just lovely people and were very helpful during our stay. The property is just like the pictures and as described on vrbo. It is hard to believe for the price! It was such a cozy little apartment. I slept on the sleep number bed and my boyfriend slept on the day bed. The dogs enjoyed their walk down the long country road with hardly any traffic. The owners also have their own dog "Scooter"!! Really cute! I wish I could find something like this every week I am on tour! Next time we are in the area, we know where to stay!

GREAT LITTLE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Recently stayed at the house for a 5 day trip to Ft. Myers. Good location close to restaurants shopping etc. 25 minute drive to the beach. Perfect place for 2-3 people. The kitchen is definitely a bit makeshift but works for what you need! Beautiful location and helpful owners. TV and Internet worked perfectly! Great place for the price!

EXCELLENT AND PEACEFULL GET AWAY AWAY FROM THE COLD WEATHER UP IN NEW YORK

  • 5 of 5
This property was so beautiful, clean and well maintained, just like in the photos. Paula and Dan were as friendly as can be and were very helpful in recommending where to eat shop and the attractions, which were only minutes away from either direction. Six Mile Cypress Preserve right around the corner is a really pretty walking trip. Sanibel Island and Captiva Island are also fun trips. We've got 2 dogs and we visited most of the dog parks almost every day and also went to the beautiful dog beach, which I know they really enjoyed too. They also got to play with Scooter a little, who is a cutie. There is so many things to do in the area it's hard to decide, but we also kicked back and relaxed too. It was Just what we all needed. We will be coming back again. Thank you so much Paula, Dan and Scooter, we had a great and relaxing vacation.

COUNTRY HOME BY THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place! I rented this home for my daughter for the week before college started and it was perfect! Beautiful quiet country surroundings while only minutes to the beach/shopping and restaurants. The kitchen area was managable every appliance necessary for not having an actual stove/oven but there is a full size fridge. The hosts were so pleasant and welcoming right down to the bathrobe in the bathroom! The sleep number bed was very comfy and the tv channel selection and wifi were perfect! I would recommend this for couples if your looking for a relaxing get away!

GREAT BASEBALL GETAWAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in Fort Myers! The house and landscaping are beautiful. I enjoyed hitting balls into the pond to prepare for a round of golf at the Fort Myers Country Club! We came down from Chicago area to attend a baseball tournament. We were only 15 minutes from most of the local fields which was very convenient. I would definitely stay again! I only wish I had more time in Florida. Thanks Dan & Paula.
