Enjoy watching the DOLPHINS and MANATEE feeding or playing, diving PELICANS and birdlife, and schools of jumping fish.

Keywords: Ideal South Ft. Myers Location of Palm Acres in the Shell Pt. Community, Minutes to Sanibel or Ft. Myers Beach, Woodland's Golf Blocks Away, Biking and Walking Paths, Well Appointed Private Home with Large Swimming Pool and Lanai Overlooking Mangroves and the Caloosahatchee River.
The breath taking views of the river, mangroves, and canal as well as the location near Sanibel, Ft. Myers Beach, Bunche Beach preserve trails and canoe park...we bike to all! Quiet neighborhood. Tranquil setting.
Again, the million dollar views and tranquility. Having the availability of walking around Shell Pt. peninsula with wildlife and river views any time of the day is wonderful!
Our entire vacation went so smoothly...from check-in to check-out. We went to quite a few of the homeowner's recommended activities and events (first Friday art walk and third Friday music walk in downtown Ft. Myers, Barbara B Mann performing arts, quaint Arcade Theater--plays, Ding Darling wildlife sanctuary, many farmer's markets and art fairs) and restaurants. There were 2 bikes to use and many great biking and walking paths. Sometimes we just spent the entire day by the pool watching all the wildlife in the canal. The time went by so fast! We loved every moment of our stay, and completely enjoyed the beautiful home and private water front setting.
There is so much to do a see in this part of Florida. Downtown Fort Myers has art and music crawls twice a month. There are lots of parks for nature walks and seeing the local wild life. And the beaches are not as crowded in January. So you can catch lots of sun and sunsets without the crowds. We loved the location of this home. The home provided wonderful amenities (like heated pool), and was very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and would come back!
We have stayed in this home in March off and on for the past 13 years. The owners have continued to improve on the quality of the furnishings, etc. and have kept this home in top condition. However, the location is what captures us. The setting is indescribable with magnificent water views. It's so close to everything...3 miles to Sanibel Island or quaint Bunche Beach, 6 miles to Ft. Myers Beach, 25 minutes to the airport, and shops just down Summerlin Rd. The home is tucked away from the 'hustle and bustle'. There are many beautiful walks to take in the neighborhood. Our home-away-from-home.
We loved the location. The homeowners shared 2 bikes, so we biked over the Sanibel causeway to breakfast and the light house beach on several occasions. We also biked to a more private beach that was a bit closer...Bunche Beach. The grocery store (Publix) was also close to bike to as well as Tanager Outlet Mall. There was also a very tranquil walking path along the water that was just 1/2 block from the home. We spent a lot of time just relaxing by the pool. The view was stunning and very private. It was always exciting to hear the 'pffff' of either dolphins or manatee coming up to breath. The home is very comfortable. I cook, and the beautiful kitchen had everything I needed.We really enjoyed our stay in Ft. Myers and in this home.
We started off our vacation with the holiday 'luminary walks' on Sanibel (1st Friday) and Captiva (1st Saturday). The shops are open and invite you in with holiday cheer and nibbles! Downtown Fort Myers offers Art Walk (1st Friday's) as well as Music Walk (3rd Friday). You can take the 'uncrowded trolly' from the corner of San Carlos/Summerlin all the way down to Lover's Key, you can rent bikes on Sanibel and bike through Ding Darling for fabulous bird watching, you can rent a canoe at Bunch Beach Preserve, and we love the charming farmer's market at Lake's Park...all these things are just a few miles away. Within an hour's drive (or less) is the Edison Home/Botanical Garden's (Ft. Myers), Korshan State Park (great history!) or Estero Bay Preserve, the Naples Botanical Garden. But our favorite is just relaxing by the pool and watching the dolphins and manatees in the canal. We didn't want to leave!
We loved the quiet location of the home. Sitting pool side and watching the dolphins and bird life is incredible. The home is well updated, generously equipped for cooking and barbequing (gas grill), beach chairs and umbrella were provided. The owners were very accommodating to deal with, as were the surrounding neighbors. One of our favorite things to do...besides having just a short drive to Sanibel and Bunche Beach & Preserve...was to walk around the water's edge of Shell Pt. Village at sunset and watch MORE dolphins. We loved our stay.
World renowned sugar sand beaches of Sanibel Island are just minutes away; as well as the colorful beach front restaurants and shops of Ft. Myers Beach; and canoe park at Bunche Beach.
If bird or wild life watching is your passion, this SW Florida location offers some of the best...Ding Darling on Sanibel, 6-Mile Cypress Slough and Lakes Park in Ft Myers, Koreshan State Park in Bonita Springs, Naples Zoo.
One of SW Florida's best Farmer's Markets is located nearby in stunning Lakes Park every Friday (Nov-April). The park also offers 275 acreas of walking and biking trails as well as conoe rentals. Several other Farmer's Markets are just minutes away as well.
Enjoy the art crawls or music crawls of downtown Ft. Myers as well as the numerous weekend art shows of Sanibel, Cape Coral, Ft. Myers, Estero, and Bonita Springs. Can't miss the sand sculpture contest or Shrimp Fest on Ft. Myers Beach!
If you're up for a short drive, the Florida Everglades are about 1.5 hours away. Other great day trips would be to see the Ringling Bros Circus Museum or Dali Museum in Sarasota, Bush Gardens in Tampa, infamous South Beach in Miami, the quaint artistic community of Matlacha...known as 'little Key West'. Orlando/Disneyland is 3.5 hours away.
If you bring/rent a bicycle, the ride over the Sanibel Causeway is stunning. Ride for miles adjacent to Summerlin Rd. on it's designated bike/pedestrian path...connecting to other bicycle trails and The Twins baseball stadium.
