About Keith Rigsby

Sunset House is our personal 'beach house'. After purchasing in December 2007 we invested many hours and dollars in a complete remodel and new boat-fishing dock. Originally from Southern Illinois, growing up on the Ohio River, I have always been a water lover. Sunset House is a dream come true. Come enjoy our dream, but if you are not here, we will definitely enjoy it for you!!

Keith Rigsby purchased this house in 2007

Why Keith Rigsby chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Sunset HOuse is just 30 minutes from our home, but a world away. San Carlos Island/Ft. Myers Beach are totally fantastic, if you can't relax here, good luck at home!!!!

What makes this house unique

Quiet single family neighborhood.. 12 to 15 minute walk to Times Square/Pier area of Ft Myers Beach. Fun days, quiet nights. Best of both worlds.....

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

If you have read the other reviews, you know the story -- Sunset House is a wonderful and relaxing getaway. The bay view is wonderful, and sitting on the pool deck or the dock is guaranteed to lower your blood pressure. Keith was very good to work with, professional and responsive. He keeps the pool and spa very warm at no extra cost, which is a real plus for the winter months. The house is well maintained and well stocked. You can walk to Bonita Bills, Dixie Fish, and Doc Fords in less than 10 minutes. In 20 minutes you can walk over the bridge to Ft Myers beach and the many restaurants and bars there. We stayed for a month, and the separate apartment downstairs worked perfectly for the visitors we had during our stay. Bottom line: clearly 5 stars.

Another perfect trip to Sunset House. My family and I stayed for our recurring week at the house. Keith continues to make our vacation one that we cannot wait to come back to. I would recommend this home to anyone, any time.

A week I will never forget in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place for my family to stay that was close to me.. What more could I ask for than the house across the street. I have always admired it and when we finally were able to be there it was better than we ever expected. This house has made so many memories for myself and my family. It is where I got ready for my wedding, where my nephew learned to swim without swimmies for the first time and the spot where for the first time I had my entire family in the same spot in my state. I have never seen my brother so relaxed and happy and just enjoying the house and the view. I am so excited that he is already thinking about planning a trip for next summer with his friends and they will again be staying there. Everything about the house was perfect and Keith, the owner, absolutely amazing. I would give this house and Keith 10 stars if I could. :)

Little Peace of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a special getaway to meet up with our grown kids, their spouses and our grandkids together for a family vacation this summer - and could not have found a more perfect home or location for our group of 9. The beautiful open layout on the main level and beautiful of the water, dock, pool and Fort Myers Beach was the perfect canvas for sunny days and amazing sunsets each of the 7 days we were there. The separate downstairs living and sleeping space worked perfectly for the grandkids. Keith, the owner, was extremely responsive and available to answer our questions - and made us feel right at home. The home is incredibly clean, well decorated but very casual and comfortable ... we hated to leave! We've loved the Sanibel/Captiva Island area for over 25 years, but are now new fans of the Fort Myers Beach area - great restaurants, and a hidden gem of a beach (with tons of sand dollars!) Without a doubt, we would highly recommend Sunset House and hope to return again in the future. Thank you Keith for your wonderful hospitality and beautiful home!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We looked, we found it, we booked it, and we loved it! This is a great vacation destination. The house was clean and modern. Wifi and TVs were great. Slept like a baby in the beds. Everything was provided, all we had to do was bring clothes and food. Keith is a great owner, very responsive to any needs or questions. We loved the pool, fishing off the dock, and site seeing all of Ft Myers area. Great restaurants were close by, a dozen within a 5 minute drive. We are looking to go back as soon as we can arrange our next vacation.
