Perfect for families! Offering separate space for grandparents!

Absolute Bliss! I am delighted to offer Beachfront Bliss to others to create lasting memories. Bliss is a 5 bedroom renovated Old Florida style home with 4 bedrooms in the main house and an additional bedroom in the guest house. It is one of the finest homes on the beach and perfect for a private and relaxing family vacation. Children and sunbathers love our zero edge pool heated to 85° with fountain. We have tropical landscaping throughout and a fantastic deck to watch spectacular sunsets and overlook your own private sugar sand beach, hammocks, lounge chairs and fire-pit.

The main house offers a split floor plan with 2 bedrooms on each side of the house with connecting Jack and Jill bathrooms. Every bedroom has a flat screen TV, linens and towels. There are plenty of beach chairs and a fully equipped kitchen stocked with everything you need. We even have pizza pans to make your own homemade pizza and a crockpot to save you cooking time!

About Elisabeth

I am delighted to offer my home to families to enjoy quality time and create lasting memories. To view a virtual tour please scroll to the bottom of the amenities section.

Elisabeth purchased this house in 2006

Why Elisabeth chose Fort Myers Beach

This direct beachfront home with heated pool offers 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms including a separate guest cottage for those wanting extra privacy. 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. The guest house is ideal for grandparents or anyone who would like additional privacy and extra space. Bliss is within walking distance to water sports and dining. I live nearby and am alway available to help. Sorry no weddings or parties of any kind.

What makes this house unique

This house has it all! The main house sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico with a private beach, a separate guest cottage and a heated swimming pool. A great family compound. Please find our video for more pictures.

Stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

We had family and friends totaling 8. The views from the kitchen and deck are breath taking. The pool was well maintained. The house it's self is open allowing for great family interaction. Elizabeth is very easy to work with and made the process painless! Short drive to charter fishing, and stores. Plentiful restaurant options. We cooked most nights. The guest house is an esquisite retreat for parents looking for a little quiet time. The sand infront of the house is great for little ones. The house is located perfectly away from the larger resorts keeping your stretch of gulf uncrowded We highly recommend contacting Elizabeth and seeing for yourself. Thank you Elizabeth for sharing your home.

Loved Beachfront Bliss!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Elisabeths home in Florida! The house was in a perfect location, and the pool and the beach could not have been nicer. ( the afternoon shade on the pool was just right to get a break from the sun, and the privacy was great) .Our 2 year old grandson had endless fun playing with all of the sand toys! ( no need to bring any)! We loved the beach along with sea shell hunting! The main house along with the guest house were spotless and had all of the comforts of home. The surrounding yard was like a little paradise... hammocks, fire pit, barbecue, and plenty of seating for everyone ! The local restaurants were also wonderful, and if you're a sea food lover, there are plenty of choices! Shopping is convenient, and there is a also medical clinic nearby for those who might be concerned. The trolley, which stops across the street is also a plus. To sum it up, we enjoyed our Florida vacation... Elisabeth was great to deal with, and we hope to go back again!!
