About Gary Ashmore

I was raised in Florida, in the Orlando area, but lived around the US after marriage. We lived on the Atlantic Coast of Florida for a few years while working at Cape Kennedy and decided we wanted a Florida place for retirement. We purchased this Carriage House in September and have found the location to be ideal for convenience to the beaches and shopping. The weather is more beautiful than we remembered. Winters on the Gulf Coast are milder than on the Atlantic. We have found Ft. Myers to be very welcoming and friendly with lots to do. The vegetable markets in the winter are terrific! We were upset when our great local tomatoes froze last February, but more were available by April from the Immokalee area. We took a boat trip to Everglades City, the old Rod and Gun club was fantastic. We have yet to tour the Everglades or fossil hunt in Venice. I have books in the house to educate visitors on the area.

Gary Ashmore purchased this condo in 2009

Why Gary Ashmore chose North Fort Myers

After being raised in Florida and living on the Atlantic Coast, we decided the Ft. Myers area, especially Moody River, had access to everything we wanted. Lots of restaurants, museums, attractions, farmer's markets, beaches, and fishing. Even if you don't visit attractions or beaches the area is great.

What makes this condo unique

Moody River is very lushly landscaped and maintained, with 60% of original homeowners being active. This makes the property very stable and secure. There are walking paths around the entire property and it is across the street from a golf course. It is a few blocks from the Caloosahatche River. There is boating access across the street for Moody River. We've found boating from Pine Island to be more convenient to the Gulf fishing than the river . Local restaurants are abundant and reasonable, especially the Italian restaurants. The development is pleasurable without the tourist attractions.

Snowbird escape ( Jan- Feb 2015)

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be a very comfortable home away from home. The home is very spacious and has every convenience you would need to feel at home. We walked almost everyday along the scenic walkways and we enjoyed the beautiful heated pool. The location is very quiet but still just a couple miles from Fort Meyers. We visited the beaches and Farmers Markets and took in a few movies, all of which are within a few miles. We also ate at a fish and chips, and restaurants at a Marina which are close by.The owners are very accommodating and want to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. We would definitely recommend this home, you would not be disappointed.

Great accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for the months of January and February of 2012. We found everything to be exactly as stated and were pleasantly surprised with how spacious it was. This would be a great unit for additional family or company. The furnishings are very tasteful and the owners have equipped it with everything you would need. The owners are extremely nice and very interested in your stay being pleasant.

Moody River is a beautiful complex full of lush landscaping, 2 nice pools, clubroom and work-out room. We particularly enjoyed the sidewalks around the entire complex for morning or evening walks and met many friendly people. There is a marina close enough to walk to and enjoy several restaurants.

We would highly recommend this rental. The only thing that could make it better is bar stools at that great counter in the kitchen and perhaps bikes. You wont be disappointed in this rental.

great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this rental property. We were close to beaches, restaurants, malls, and baseball stadiums. We are Mn. Twins fans so it was fun to experience winter baseball and our grandchildren were thrilled with that. The Red Sox also have a stadium in Ft.Meyers. The condo was clean, very roomy and we enjoyed everything about it. It is a gated community, very clean, everyone that we visited with was very friendly. We had never rented a condo before and the owners were willing to answer all our questions. The kitchen was well stocked with all dishes and utensils that we needed. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to rent.
