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.....

Another exceptional experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just concluded our fourth stay at Sunset House. The property was once again in exceptional shape with everything needed to rest and have no worries for our week. Keith continues to keep us coming back by assuring everything is prepared.

I recommend this home to anyone with any family size. It's close to everything and provides for a worry free stay.

Beautiful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week here with three generations. This home has plenty of room for everyone. The downstairs living area works out perfectly if you have family members with different sleeping routines. Early birds can get up without waking the late sleepers. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Sunset House. The home is beautifully and comfortably decorated and furnished. Anything and everything you could think of has been provided. It is located away from all of the busyness of Fort Meyers Beach but close enough to go over and enjoy it if you choose. Keith, the owner was immediately responsive to any questions or issues and is terrific to deal with. We are hoping to come back again in the future and would recommend it to anyone coming to the Fort Meyers area. Our whole family absolutely loved it.

Best vacations!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Sunset House and we were just as happy as the first time! Beautiful house, beautiful view, within walking distance to the best restaurants and beach, also just a few minute walk to the trolley when we wanted to go further. Can't wait to come back! Thanks again Keith!

Wonderful vacation retreat

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed here for a week and we all agreed that it was a relaxing time. We used the pool a lot and sat on the dock for sunsets. Plenty of room for all, even if you wanted to be alone for awhile. Being able to do laundry there was great. Fabulous location overlooking the bay between San Carlos Island and Fort Myers beach. Owner easy to contact and responds immediately.

Our best FAMILY vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 sons and daughters-in-law, and 5 grand kids and myself stayed at the Sunset House for a week, and absolutely loved everything about it! The pool was perfect for the 5 grand kids, and so convenient, too! The weather the entire week was in the 80's and sunny! The downstairs quarters were perfect for my son with the 5 kids to sleep in, with pull out sofas and an air mattress on the floor for the little girls. We found all the cooking utensils and dishes we needed to use upstairs for cooking our meals - the dishwasher was great to have and we used it every day! The only thing we wished was that we were closer to the beach - it was a good 20 minute walk over the bridge and to the beach, but you could catch a trolley right by the bridge. We tried this one day and the trolleys were all running 30 minutes late! As other reviews have stated, we too saw manatees swimming right by our dock, and many dolphins also. The kids rented kayaks and paddled to our house in about 10 minutes, and said the bay was beautiful from their boats! There was plenty of room upstairs for all of us to eat, and a nice big living room. We also used the screened in porch a lot, and loved the nightly sunsets! We would highly recommend this place to couples, families, or special occasions! Last of all, we got to watch the beautiful fireworks on New Year's Eve from our boat dock - We had the perfect view and didn't have to fight traffic to see them!

Absolutely one of the BEST vacays EVER!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can sincerely say that our stay at Sunset House last week was one of the best vacations ever!!!

My family of 10 enjoyed the spacious rooms, ample seating, cleanliness, and well-appointed amenities that Sunset House had to offer.

The first day we were there we had already seen dolphins, manatees, bald eagles, a sea turtle holding a horseshoe crab in its mouth, and a sting ray jumping out of the water!!

We brought our 20' pontoon boat and kayaks and idled around Mantanzas Pass to partake in many of the little quiet beach areas and was also a short sail to Fort Myers Beach! A great Location indeed!!

The only time we left property in our car was to get groceries. Trolley nearby within walking distance.

It was heavenly to wake up in the morning to the beautiful peaceful view and then enjoy the gorgeous evening sunsets!!!

Already planning a return visit for summer 2016!!!! Thank you so much Keith!!!!!!
