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.

Our kind of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from our 2nd trip to the Pink house. The location and the charm of this house along with the warmth of FMB is the key to our trip. We love to share to this home with a few special friends. If you are looking for a brand new or updated place then the pink house might not be for you. It is Florida beach cottage at its finest. Our friends fell in love with it just like us. Coffee on the deck in the mornings, a workout on the beach then a cold shower in the outdoor shower. We almost always eat at home since you have one of the best views on the island. The beds are comfortable, all the appliances work, and the owners respond quickly. You have privacy, a great beach and close enough to walk or bike into town. My only complaint is that it is always booked so it is difficult to get back every year.

The pink house is a perfect place to relax and unplug.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the style and comfort of our pink house. We had plenty of space with 2 couples and 3 kids 10-12. The back porch overlooking the beach was my favorite place to be. We would stay again.

Beachfront simplicity!

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to find this house to be more than described. My family had a wonderful week. Our dog was able to be a part of our vacation too! The house is very accommodating. The kitchen had all we needed including pantry and refrigerator and household staples. Plenty of beach chairs and other items. It's not fancy but has great character. Hands down, THE best beach front porch!

When can we go back to the Pink House?

  • 5 of 5

I probably get that question from one family member or another at least once a month ... The photo's don't do this house justice, we were awe struck from the moment we walked in. The house instantly becomes this magical place that you know you'll remember for years to come. We actually never left, we cooked, played games, went to the beach on repeat for five days ... we tried to go down town (you know, you're supposed to eat out and shop while on vacation) we couldn't wait to get back the house. We're thinking of coming back in August or October, one way or another we'll be staying again!

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.
