Overview

About the property

Traditional cottage home - quiet and amazing location at the end of a canal

Fantastic waterfront location at a wide canal in the south of Fort Myers Beach. Lovingly furnished and functional, great view from the dining room and from the two terraces. The detached cottage home is located at the end of a canal in a quiet dead end street, 4 minutes walk to the beach.

The vacation-home BigBlue has 2 separate units, which can be used differently depending on the number of guests.

1. The unit on the 1st floor has 94 sqm. Ideal for 2 person or 2 person with up to 2 small children. 1 bedroom with queen-size bed, 1 bedroom with a bunk bed, 1 living room with large kitchen and storeroom, dining room with 6 seats, 1 bathroom with tub / shower / toilet, 1 guest toilet, large terrace. TV with cable television, free WiFi, 1 Harman Kardon Onyx mini Bluetooth speaker.

2. The unit on the ground floor has 44 sqm with one bedroom with queen size bed, 1 living room with small kitchen, 1 bathroom with shower and toilet and 1 terrace, free WiFi and 1 TV with cable TV.

For 4 - 6 persons or families the complete vacation-home is ideal.

Nobody else would be renting the second unit during the same time.

Both houses have a utility room with washing machine and dryer. These appliances can be used by the guests.

The vacation-home BigBlue is the ideal starting point for shopping in the surrounding outlet centers (for example, the Tanger Outlet and the Miromar Outlet), as well as the shopping centers Coconut Point and Gulf Coast Towncenter in Estero. Within easy reach are the beaches of Bonita Springs, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island. Trips to Orlando and Miami as well as by boat to Key West are possible.

What a Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

This place is one of the best values on Ft Myers Beach. It is very well kept and there is more than enough space. The separate unit in the lower level was great for the teenagers. I would highly recommend Britta and would absolutely stay here again.

Best Holidays Ever !!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen super tollen Urlaub dort verbracht. Es hat uns in den (fast) 4 Wochen an Nichts gefehlt. Das Haus ist komplett - aber so was von komplett - eingerichtet und ausgestattet. Vom Handtuch bis zum Wäschetrockner, vom Korkenzieher bis zur Mikrowelle - alles da! Am nahen, riesigen, weißen (ohne sich die Füße zu verbrennen) und feinsandigen Strand konnten wir schöne Stunden verbringen - herrlicher Sonnenuntergang. Für Tagesausflüge nach Captiva, Sunnybell und Lover´s Key sowie nach Miami und in die Everglades hervorragend gelegen. Wir waren auch ein paar Tage in Orlando und Cape Caneveral.

Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen und können dieses Haus nur wärmstens empfehlen !!!

Traumurlaub in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Tolle Ferien in einem Ferienhaus mit allem, was das Herz begehrt. Das BigBlue liegt wunderbar ruhig und ist ein perfekter Ausgangspunkt für die vielen schönen Ziele in Florida. Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr komfortabel und sehr gemütlich eingerichtet. Von der Klimaanlage bis zur Waschmaschine ist alles verfügbar. In 5 Gehminuten ist man am wunderschönen Fort Myers Beach. Ein paar Autominuten entfernt befindet sich ein grosser Publix Supermarkt. Hier findet man alles, was man braucht. Zu unserer Reisezeit empfiehlt sich ein guter Mückenschutz (am besten im Supermarkt vor Ort kaufen). Das Haus verfügt rundherum über Mückennetze an den Fenstern, so daß Innen eigentlich keine Gefahr besteht. Sehr von Vorteil ist auch die deutschsprachige Hausverwaltung vor Ort. Man wird ausgesprochen freundlich empfangen und in die Gegebenheiten eingewiesen. Unser Fazit: Jederzeit wieder!

The house is located in a quiet side street. The beach is within walking distance. Shops (supermarket, pharmacy, etc.) are nearby. Convenient location for nature lovers / - photographers. Several nature reserves (z. B. Little Estero Lagoon, Ding Darling NWR on Sanibel Iceland, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary) are within easy reach by car.
