About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 - 7

The beautifully restored historic beachfront cottage is a one of a kind jewel on the white sandy beach of Fort Myers Beach. The location is perfect, 3/4 mile south of the little downtown area of Fort Myers beach with restaurants, the fishing pier and cute shops it is out of the busy area, but still within walking distance.

Though the property is beachfront, the little setback gives it the perfect privacy. Just across the street is the public library, playground and public tennis courts all free of charge , and a kid-friendly public pool.

The mantanzas nature preserve area offers great access to the back bay to enjoy the wildlife and the sunrise.

The house speaks for itself if you click on the attached pictures, the open deck and porch give you the view of the gulf of Mexico, with its unique tropical sunsets.

There is a Supermarket as close as 200 yards, another one 1 mile to the south, if you enjoy going around the island without a car, an island-trolley-stop is right there.

Superb Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I'll start with the experience with the owner, Marjan. He was so very kind and accommodating to us the day after we arrived, although there was nothing we really needed. Everything was clean and set up for us when we got there. While the home is an older home, it is in very good condition. This was the first time I took my children and grandchildren on a family vacation as a Christmas present to all of them and we would certainly come back again. The location is absolutely perfect. We didn't have a car for the trip because there was 8 of us total, but never needed one. The trolly runs past the house and a stop right across the street at the library. $0.75 per person to ride. Topps grocery store was about a block away, well within walking distance to the north. To the south, less than a block was a plaza that had a rental store, pizza place, and a coffee shop that was very good. The house sits back from the road and a short walk out the back deck puts you right on the beach! It was perfect for our 2 and 3 year old grandchildren. We spent the majority of our time on the beach. There were lounge chairs that we could take down to the beach so didn't have to lay in the sand. That beach sand is second to none! It is like flour!! The house was spacious, 3 bedrooms downstairs and a loft upstairs which we never even used. Easily sleeps 8 people or four couples. Hardwood floors throughout with tiled bathrooms. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our visit there. Marjan, thank you so much for sharing your home with us. I am hopeful to see you again next year! I would highly recommend this home for large families looking for a getaway. We stayed the entire week and have no regrets!

"My" Pink House

  • 5 of 5

I love this beach cottage! I have stayed here a week in the spring and a week in the fall for the past few years. As soon as I pull in the driveway I feel as if I'm home. This is a great location. As other's have said it is set back from the road so you never hear road noise and it is set back off the beach so you have complete privacy. You can walk to a small supermarket as well as restaurants. It is an easy walk to Time Square as well. I cannot say enough about the location - convenient yet away from the crowds.

We cook in as much as we go out. The kitchen has all of your cooking needs. A gas grill is also available. The interior has a bohemian artsy feel. However, not a lot of time is spent inside because the outside living area is incredible. The view from the upstairs porch is beautiful. Great place. Looking forward to returning soon!

Owners are super nice. You must have breakfast at their restaurant (Skye's - Mexican at night). Best jumbo bloody mary in town.

Its one of a kind places

  • 5 of 5

Country style cape cod inspred historical house in an amazing location. Tastefully decorated and very cozy. Great for family or friends gatherings. Steps to the beach and gulf. Close to all restaurants and shops but still secluded and very private. The house is equipped with all things you need. We even brought the table on the beach with folding chairs and champaigne to meet a sunrise. For kids you will find all toys for beach activities.

We had a wonderful time. Perfect for coming with kids since the waters are shallow and safe.

We cant wait to be back again. Strongly recommended!

Excellent As Always!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home for the 2nd time, and once again, it was amazing. I'm in love with this house, and can't say enough good things about it! It's cozy, yet roomy and the location is perfect. I love the fact that it's set back off the beach, as well as the street. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone!

Great to Work With

  • 5 of 5

We had made a reservation to come in October, but unfortunately we had to cancel. The owners were so easy to work with and refunded our deposit. When we can finally make it to the beach, the Pink House is where we will stay.

We had all of our family (8 of us) stay here and we had a blast and really enjoyed the Pink House. It was very comfortable and the view of the Gulf was unbelievable. We enjoyed a couple of meals cooking on the gas grill. We would often sit outside on the back patio and just wonder at the awesome view. This place is so quiet and peaceful. We thank you for sharing your house with family.
