About Dana Zuber

Well the story all began when my family moved from New Jersey to Florida back in 1980!

My whole family is still living here. Unfortunately I had to move back to N.J. after college- to work but My husband and I found this gem back in 2001. We loved the idea of coming down and spending time with my brothers - and their families and for our kids to know their cousins.Unfortunately due to our busy lives we can't get down to Florida more than a few times of year- so we love the idea of sharing our home with you! I have tried to make our home comfortable and easy for all- who arrive. I love to entertain so you will find a fully equipped kitchen with all the items you need to host a family gathering! I hope you enjoy our house as much as we do!

Dana Zuber purchased this house in 2001

Why Dana Zuber chose Fort Myers Beach

I loved the idea of having a private residence near the beach- without all the chaos the north end of the beach can bring at various times of the year. The canal waterway to open water is a quick one to the gulf( @15 minutes which is Really great-)

Important question to ask if you are renting a boat on the island..

The location of our beach and the actual beach itself- is beautiful and a tranquil wide open space( pictures are on my site).

I loved the location- walk to everything while still being private! Very Important-

What makes this house unique

Location - Location- Location-

Easy on and off the island in high season by traveling in and out of the south end of the island- ( highly recommend) vs traveling over Mantanzas Bridge-

During the off season- it is fine to travel either way please note.

The Beach where our home is located is Awesome! truly one of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen ( I have traveled all over the world- on business)

The home is situated on a quiet street but right in the center of a lot of activity -- which enables you to retreat to a calm haven after you have had your fill of all there is to do!!


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Wonderful family reunion spot

  • 5 of 5

The harmony house worked out very well for me, 2 daughters and 4 grandsons. The beds were comfy, the kitchen nice, and the pool was a big hit. We had to cross Estero Blvd to get to the beach but the wagon that was provided worked well for transporting chairs, umbrellas, Ect. If I was to be really picky I would say the low water pressure in the kitchen sink as well as no cold water was annoying but not enough to prevent me from returning.

Great week at Harmony House

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly as described on vrbo. It was exceptionally clean and had everything you could possibly need . Tons of beach towels and every kitchen gadget you would need. We had 4 adults and 3 children 10,5 and 3 . We had plenty of room. All had a great time. Kids especially loved the pool. The 5 yr. old thought there was too much sand on the beach😊 Any questions were answered promptly by Kathie. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance and the trolley stop was right on the corner when we wanted to go to Times Square. THANKS DANA!

Fully equipped vacation home! Perfect for 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect place to share with friend and family! We stayed for a week (my family of 4 and my sisters family of 3). The house has EVERYTHING you need for a perfect beach vacation. No need to bring your own beach towels or chairs. There was even a wagon in the garage to pull down to the beach which came in very handy with 3 little ones in tow. The pool was a big hit with the kids as well. The house was incredibly clean and the kitchen was superbly equipped! If you want to chill your wine they even had a wine chiller in the cabinets! We enjoyed cooking as a family and spending time together in the main living area which is in the center of the house with an open floor plan. Great choice for a relaxing vacation!

Two Weeks at Harmony House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful two week vacation at Harmony House. If was a perfect blend of privacy and convenience to the beach and surrounding restaurants/shops that Ft. Myers Beach has to offer. While we were concerned about traffic at this time of year, using the south exit of the island offered no issues at all. The pictures on the website were a very accurate representation of what is available at the house and Dana and Kathy were very helpful during our stay. In fact I'm not sure how they arranged for the two dolphin to go swimming past the dock minutes after we checked in to the house, but it was a real treat! We will certainly return on our next trip to Ft Myers Beach and highly recommend it to everyone!

Good time away.

  • 5 of 5

Harmony House was an excellent choice for a rental, very simple to find, far enough from the pier end of the Island

to not get caught up in the traffic and construction, yet close enough to entertainment spots. Home was Clean and comfortable, Pool looked very inviting ( but weather didn't cooperate to enjoy it) and views looking out on the Channel very enjoyable. Dana and Kathie were both very easy to work with. 100 yds. to Beach is a bit of a stretch, but a simple walk none the less. Highly recommend over for peace and quiet over the Resorts.
