About Elisabeth

I am delighted to offer my home to families to enjoy quality time and create lasting memories.

Elisabeth purchased this house in 2006

Why Elisabeth chose Fort Myers Beach

If you are looking or a beach house that feels like a real beach house this is it! Bliss was completely remodeled to maintains it's charm and furnished for both style and comfort. Bliss has a heated pool, offers 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. For grandparents or those wanting extra privacy we have a separate Guest Cottage with a small kitchen. Beachfront Bliss is located in a quiet residential area and sits on an extra large property on the widest part of the beach on the island. Bliss is within walking distance to water sports and dining. I live nearby and am alway available to help.

What makes this house unique

This house has it all! A true original "Old Florida" cottage with only 5 stairs to the sand! The separate guest cottage is a wonderful feature plus and a heated swimming pool. The house has a big open layout with breathtaking views from the beach and deck. A great family compound with the comforts of home. Please view the video for more pictures.

We had a great vacation staying at Elisabeth's house.

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us on vacation staying at Elisabeth's house and with her guest house it worked out perfect. There were three generation on the trip so the guest house worked out great for my son, his wife and two small children.

The house itself was decorated beautifully with a real beachy feel. The place was spotless clean and had everything you needed to have a comfortable stay. Having the beach just steps away from your back doors was the best. Made you feel if you forgot something, you didn't mind making the short walk back. Wonderful for small children and/or aging adults.

Then there's the private pool which is located in between main and guest houses which for us was very nice to lounge at after lunch. When the grandkids need to go down for naps we were right there. There's plenty of seating for everyone at poolside but there's also a soothing fountain on an inside pool decking which was amazing. The decking was nice to enjoy the water, without actually getting in to the pool. Great for the little ones to play or lounging while staying cool.

Elisabeth made us feel very welcomed into her house and you could tell that she cares about making sure her guests have everything they need for a fabulous vacation. She pays attention to details.

I would recommend her house to anyone looking for a place for 10 or less people who want to be steps away from the beach, private pool, that's clean and cozy, and wants to rent from someone who obviously cares about her house and the guest who stay in it. Happy Vacationing!!!

Excellent vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at beachfront bliss. We had 4 children ages 2 to 6 so the one level layout was ideal. The separate guest house was a great perk for the couple who brought no children and wanted to be part of the vacation without the kid aspect. Large isolated sandy backyard with fire pit and hammocks was excellent. House was very clean and well appointed. We would definitely stay at beachfront bliss again!

Perfect beach house in every way.

Our own resort

The house was even more fantastic than the pictures. It was like having our own mini resort. As a family of 10 we had numerous location options to enjoy our vacation. We went from the pool to the private beach to the public beach to the hammocks. There was plenty of space for everyone to be together and also have privacy. The guest house was really enjoyed by my parents and they were very comfortable. The house is professionally decorated and in perfectly maintained. You can see that Elisabeth does a great amount of work on the house to keep it looking so great. we loved the smart TV’s and the free Netflix in all the rooms. The location is great and we ate at many restaurants nearby. We hope to come back very soon.

Beautiful accomodations and location is perfect

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were lovely- the beach is great the way you can walk way out into the ocean and not be too deep. Elisabeth had even arranged a pod of wild dolphins to come and swim within 5 feet of us as we were a little off shore! Impressive. We saw dolphins from the deck every day. I had never seen a live sand dollar before and there were hundreds right off shore. We swam in the pool every evening and rented a pontoon boat one day to take an excursion to Lover's Key. It made for a very relaxing vacation and I highly recommend this location.

Can't beat it

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with several families which included small children (ages 3 months - 2.5 years) and loved the property. The open layout of the main house is great and the seperate guest house is perfect for those that want sleep. The pool is gated and has a shallow deck which is great for kids and adults. The private backyard is great for hanging out, BBQ, swinging on the hammock and sitting around the fire pit. You can't beat having the beach just steps from your back door (without all the crowds). Publix is less than a mile away and plenty of restaurants just a short drive from the house. The owner, Elisabeth, is very responsive and attentive. We'd definitely come back and recommend the stay.
