North Island House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

This really cute house is located on a quiet residential street, but a short walk to the action of Times Square. And very important a very very short walk to the beautiful white pristine beaches on the island. It has a great back yard with a privacy fence and a new deck to sit out in the morning and drink coffee or to sunbathe on all day. Or to grill your evening dinner on.

It is very fun to bike in the area or just to get out and walk to see all the exciting things going on. It is like taking a Caribbean vacation only without the passport.

There is a great city pool complex a couple of streets over with tube slides, a playground in the water.It is like a waterpark Playground beside the pool and tennis courts.

It is great for the winter with the cold weather up North. But the summers are really great with not as much traffic and all the really neat stuff on the island.

The living room has a huge TV, VCR and DVD. Relaxing couch and chairs to 'chill' after a fun day in the sun.

Great and fun place to stay, very near the beach.: Great for a couple or an entire family. It is just a great island and my home is close to everything. Fenced yard for small children or pets.

Wonderful Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at this house. We had 2 adults and 5 kids. Anne could not have been nicer in meeting all our needs. It started even before we landed in Ft. Myers. There was a problem with her previous renters and both Anne and her cleaning team worked really hard the day before and the day of our arrival to fix the problem before we got there. Anne even offered to move us to a different rental property if that would suit our family better.

Location was another amazing factor about this house. Was about a 4 minute walk to the beach. There is a crosswalk right at the end of Delmar and we felt comfortable sending our older kids (8 and 10) back and forth to the beach without us. It was also about a 8 minute walk over to the community pool ($65 for unlimited admission for the family) and the grocery store.

Once at the place Anne was also very attentive to a few needs we had. We had one bath tub clogging and she was over that night to clear it up while we were at dinner. We also had a real late flight out of Ft. Myers and she was very accommodating to help in any way she could to make our last few hours peaceful and relaxing.

A few minor points we counted as positives:

- keypad entry, no need to pass keys or keep track of them among ourselves

- washer and dryer on premises, big for a family with small kids

- Some beach chairs and umbrellas available

- Since we were big family, cleaners went and got extra towels for us

- Neighbors were real nice also

- 10 minute walk up to Times Square

- Trolley stop, both North and Southbound, right near end of Delmar

- Back porch/yard very private for relaxing away from beach

- really close to many restaurants, too many to name here

Overall we loved it, would and want to go back. Would recommend to family and friends.

Owner's Response: A really lovely family. With 5 kids, I don't know how they did it. The house was so clean when they left. They loved the city pool complex, and so reasonable for SO many people, the slides (kids love those), little water fall things, lap area for adults, and relaxing area. I am so pleased they had such a good time, I try so hard to make everyone's vacation special and I so appreciate it when they notice and comment. Anne

what a great stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 2 dogs had such a great time staying at this home for the month of January. There is no better location to be as it is about 200 steps from the front door until your feet are on the sand walking down the beach access...which is perfectly located right across the street. The home was perfect for our stay and was clean and had all the things we needed for the month. We walked to time square for lunch some days and rode bikes along the beach and our dogs were loving it too. the back yard is fenced in so perfect for them as well. Anne was so nice and made sure we had everything we needed but it was pretty much already there. We are hoping to be able to come back next year! I would definitely recommend staying here as the location is perfect, the house is very clean and comfortable and the area is so safe for kids and dogs...Thanks again Anne!

Owner's Response: Delightful couple. There two dogs were so well behaved. This great gentleman even helped us move in a new sleeper sofa. They loved taking their dogs to the beach every day. I love having great guests who enjoy the beach and close the home is to it. Anne

Perfect Beach Cottage in a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home to Canada after staying at Anne's adorable cottage. The only negative is that we had to come home at all, but we have already booked again for 2016 - can't wait to go back! This property is situated in a perfect location, less than five minutes walk to the glorious white powder sand at Fort Myers Beach. The cottage had everything we needed - it was just like living at home. Anything we asked for during our stay, any questions we had, Anne responded to and addressed immediately. The fenced backyard was an added bonus as we had our pet with us. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation property - we plan to go back to Anne's every year. There is no reason to look elsewhere, when you've found the right place. The cottage is well-maintained, clean, airy and has ample room with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and central air-conditioning. Thank you Anne - see you again in 2016!

A nice rental in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Hi from France!

I used to stay a whole year on Fort Myers Beach in 2009. This year was one of my best.

This island hides treasures if you look carefuly: his inhabitants.

There the time stands still. People just lives...

I rent this house for my whole family. My 2 children (18monts and 3 years) and my wife.

We wanted to be in that area closed to time square where we love to walk and watch at the sunset.

It was the best deal for us: affordable, good situation, nice confortable, clean...

Something to improve? A caddy to go to the beach with chairs and parasol...

Owner's Response: What a delightful family from France, I could practice my French. I am so glad that they enjoyed this lovely property that is just a short walk to the beach. Anne

Owner's Response: These people are so delightful, they are fun to listen to all their fun adventures that they are having on the island. I love to hear about all the fun restaurants, and I especially love to hear about how people find the beach with its powder-like white sand so marvelous. I will be anxious for my next group to share their exploring this delightful island and what they have found with me, will that be you? Anne

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great Time in Fort Myers Beach, Cottage is close to the Beach, Food and Times Square. Ann is a great owner and gives you everything you need. Looking forward to being with her next time. Better then being further south on the beach, just close to everything.

Owner's Response: These guests were so delightful, going out to eat all the time to all the restaurants we have here on the island. I even nicknamed them my restaurant critics. There are right also this home is a very short walk to the fabulous white sand beach. I can not wait for them to come back as, of course, they have already booked for next year. Anne

Three houses from Estero Blvd. then cross the street and THE Beach. Avery short walk down Estero to Times Square, where all the action is. There are lots of restaurants, bars, little shopping spots and just fun things to do day and night.

Golf: There are 100's of golf courses in South Florida.
