"Elevator to Paradise" is exactly what you can imagine! This home had everything we needed for a memorable vacation. An open floor plan that was comfortable and inviting, offering a spectacular view of the Gulf. Three bedrooms, each with a private bath and television. A spacious master bedroom with his and her vanities, large walk-in shower, and ample supplies of towels and linens. The kitchen was well equipped with appliances and cookware, it had everything we needed for our family dinners. The deck has lounge chairs for sunning and the lanai is a great spot for breakfast and/or lunch. This is a great beach for walking, biking or just relaxing with a good book. The sunsets are incredible, we would watch, along with people on the beach, until the sun slipped down into the Gulf, we were never disappointed! There is a large "groomed" play area visible from the deck where we set up a volleyball net, played frisbee and horseshoes. Shopping, groceries, good restaurants, and a movie theater are within walking distance or by trolley. The owners, Dan and Shirley Dennis, went out of their way to make us welcome. They provided an information packet upon our arrival containing maps, phone numbers, coupons, etc. which was very helpful. This home is well maintained, clean, beautifully furnished and decorated. I highly recommend this as a Fort Myers Beach vacation home.

We just today got back from a week here. Excellent. Amazing views, right on the beach, which we loved. Sunsets every night were spectacular. This rental is very spacious. We had another couple join us for a few days and there was plenty of room for everyone. Everything as far as dishes, pans, gadgets for the kitchen were included. So many rentals have what look like garage sale rejects in the kitchen, not here. The was even a wet stone to sharpen any dull knives. There were enough towels, beach towels, blankets, sheets, pillows and so on for an army. We didn't want to leave. Highly recommend. Ann, the agent is very easy to work with and helpful. Rent this place you won't be sorry. There's even an elevator!

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is excellent! The location is several miles from the busy part of the beach but close to restaurants and shops. Everything you need is there. All rooms are spacious with everything well maintained. Had family gathering for dinner and more than enough space for (14) people. My (3) children thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations asking to rent this every year. I definitely recommend this listing.

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best beach house my family has ever stayed in. The views of the beach were amazing! We really enjoyed the deck overlooking the beach and the breakfast area that had great views of the ocean. The owner, Dan Dennis was so accommodating. He wanted to make sure if we needed anything he was available. The property was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay. My Father stayed at a resort right next to the beach house so we just walked over to see him. The beach was so beautiful! My kids found live starfish and live sand dollars when they dived down to explore. We also had a dolphin come close to shore and we ran out in the water to see it. It was about 15 feet away from us. Could have not asked for a better vacation!! Thank you for a vacation we will never forget!

This location is wonderful!!! We chose this home as it had an elevator for Grandma, a deck, and great sunset views for Mom and Dad, and our adult daughters. We ate every meal in the lanai, and Grandma found it to be the perfect place to relax and read. Each night, we played games there until late. Three bedrooms, 3 baths= heaven!

The kitchen is COMPLETE. The pantry well stocked. We brought games to play - but we found other games there, and books to read just in case. The name of this home says it all : elevator to HEAVEN. :) THANK YOU.
