Our family has always enjoyed the beach. Our love of S.Florida and its diverse population is why we keep this location our permanent home. Living on the east coast, allows us the 'best of both worlds', with the Gulf just two hours away.
When our children were young, we enjoyed going to a beach that typically was not too deep for our toddlers. This allowed us some flexibility in relaxing on the sand, with out the constant threat of deep waters for the kids. Typically, the warm Gulf waters will settle right about knee length, which is great wading water for kids. Teens can enjoy skim boarding on the beautiful waters. Jet Skis, tubing and other water sports are all at in your reach at Ft. Myers Beach.
We are afforded the luxury of being beach side (no crossing busy Estero Boulevard) yet, right off the direct sands of the gulf allowing for less expensive pricing. Direct Gulf front typically runs 10-15% more than the 'one back' homes. A true plus in this tough economy!
