About Nathalie Makepeace

My husband and I moved to Fort Myers Beach after falling in love with the beaches, the sunsets, the bird life, the people and the island feeling. After two short years we moved to the East Coast of Florida but could not give up our house. We loved that the house was on the canal with dolphins and manatees swimming by, on a quiet street and yet just a five minute walk to an incredible beach. So, we decided to rent it. We have lived all over the country; Virginia, Connecticut, New York, Ohio, Chicago, DC and Northern California (Germany too) loving all our homes but we hope to retire one day back on Fort Myers Beach! In the meantime we hope all our guest enjoy their stay.

Nathalie and Lewis - Lake Worth, FL.

Why Nathalie Makepeace chose Fort Myers Beach

I loved the Key West style of the house and the location so near to one of the most beautiful sugar sand white beaches!

What makes this house unique

The house is on a cul-de-sac and thus has some relaxing views of the back bay which can be enjoyed from the living areas and the large wrap around deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We loved the house, especially the pool and the wrap around deck. It was perfect for our dog Maizy who enjoyed barking at the birds...We hope to return next year."

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We stayed mid June and enjoyed a good location away from the centre of Fort Myers beach, but within a short tram or taxi ride to the main areas of the town.

Facilities in the home were great, all mod cons are available and the home is clean and neat. The living area is comfortable and welcoming and due to some not so good weather, for the first time we had rented a home in Florida, we used it a lot and felt comfortable and cosy.

The wrap around seating area outside is absolutely perfect for eating breakfast or reading a book and the views towards the bay are much better than the pictures portray. This made my holiday. When it began to thunder, all the birds flew over from the bay over the house and this was lovely. Squirrels run around outside the lanai and birds sit on the roof, so it's a nature lovers paradise here!

Wi fi worked really well and was welcomed ( bad weather!!) and there are books in the case if you run out.

Taxi service into town if needed, is efficient and very affordable, but if you want a 5 minute walk to see the sunset with a cocktail or beer, try the Outrigger tiki bar just across the main road at the end of the street. For eats, try Charley's boathouse right at the end of the street or Pincers crab shack which is around 10 minutes walk. Publix supermarket is a 5 minute car ride away and behind that is a great place to hire a boat for a day at the marina at a decent price.

All in all a great stay and we had a lovely time.

This was our second year in a row at Paradise Place and again, we had an amazing vacation! We felt right at home as soon as we walked in. The kitchen is fully equipped so you don't have to eat out if you don't want to. The master is away from the kids bedroom but close enough if they need you. And the pool...the heated pool...our favorite place in the house!

The gorgeous beach is a 5 min walk away. Almost every evening we would go to watch the beautiful sunset! The supermarket is a 5min drive and downtown is about 10min.

The owner, Nathalie is very, very nice and easy to talk to.

Overall, if you want a hassle free and worry free vacation, go to Paradise :)

Thank you, Nathalie, for another amazing vacation!

Wonderful Paradise Place

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei sehr entspannte Wochen in diesem wundervollen Haus verbringen dürfen und haben uns sofort wie Zuhause gefühlt. Von der Buchung angefangen, über die gesamte Organisation und Abwicklung alles vorbildlich und korrekt. Auch die Angaben im Expose entsprechen eins zu eins den Bebenheiten. Großes Lob! Der Kontakt zu Nathalie ist sehr herzlich, unkompliziert und zuverlässig. Für uns als Familie (Zwei Erwachsene und zwei 17-jährige Jungs) war dies im wahrsten Sinne ein "Paradise Place", zu dem wir gerne jederzeit wiederkommen. We loved it. Nathalie, thanks again. Best regards from Germany Antje, Uwe and boys

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes venus plusieurs fois en Floride et c’est la plus belle maison que nous ayons louée. Nous sommes restés deux petites semaines et nous avons particulièrement apprécié ses belles terrasses. Même sous les orages, il est possible de rester dehors. De plus, la maison est à quelques minutes à pieds de la mer et dans un environnement très calme.

Nathalie parle parfaitement le français ce qui a facilité nos échanges.

Thank you Nathalie and Lewis, the only disappointing thing about your house was leaving it! We will be back again soon !

Excellent vacation home and owner!

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly what I was looking for to go for our once a year family vacation, husband, children, grandchildren and our dog, we all had a blast. House was very clean on our arrival, super comfortable beds, excellent kitchen. Situated 5 minutes walking distance to the beach, movies, restaurants and 711, short drive to cvs, Publix. Perfect quiet end of the street for the grandkids to play. The entire house is screened so no problem whatsoever with bugs, we were able to be out at any time of the day/night, house has a wonderful wrap around deck. Kids never wanted to get out of the wonderful pool and they had a lot of fun fishing in the canal in the back of the house. We also took our paddle boards which was so easy to just take off from the canal in the back, we saw a lot of dolphins while paddling….just beautiful, family night walk to the beach to watch the stars! Excellent weather the entire week, never rained!

Nathalie, the owner, a pleasure to work with, we were in contact for a whole year and she answered all of my questions right away.

Going back next year and will definitely rent this house again.

Thank you Nathalie.

Great place for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were expecting and more! It felt like we were at home right away. The kids loved the pool. There's plenty of pool toys and beach toys toys at the house. And speaking about the beach - wow.... clean, soft white sand, huge beach. The house is 5 minutes walk away from the beach. And you have to see the sunsets...beautiful! Definitely thinking about going back next year. Thank you, Nathalie!

A short walk down the street provides access to the beach where you will find one of the largest and whitest beaches ever. It is amazing...Do not miss the sunsets while sipping your favorite drink from the outdoor beach bar located at the Outrigger Resort! Or enjoy a day at Lover's Key State Park located just a couple minutes south of us. the deserted natural beaches are just beautiful and it is where I find the best shells, especially right after high tide and on the south end. There are so many near by activities. Some include: fishing, kayaking, boating, shelling, biking, para-sailing and jet skiing, motor scooter rentals, golf/miniature golf, shopping (outlet) and great restaurants. A short drive or trolley ride can take you to Times Square, the nearby fun public pier full of shopping, sightseeing, and restaurants. Boat rentals at local marinas are available or bring your own and enjoy the use of the boat dock and lift at the house. Nearby locations to visit include Sanibel and Captiva Islands, and Naples or enjoy local establishments in the city of Fort Myers. But with all of this, just renting a cabana, soaking up the sun and relaxing on the beach is my favorite!
