About Barry Ahlemeier

We love living here!! Directly on San Carlos Bay, we have endless water to look upon and gorgeous sunsets to revel in. This house allows you to completely relax with scenic views of the bay, Ft. Myers Beach, and Sanibel Island. There's nothing better than waking up to the sound of sea breeze brushing through the palm trees. Our backyard is full of manatees, dolphins, sea turtles and much more - all of which we enjoy watching. We grew up in St. Louis and still visit often, but this is our dream home. We would love for you to stay here and feel the same way - we feel like we're on vacation all the time!

Barry Ahlemeier purchased this house in 1982

Why Barry Ahlemeier chose Fort Myers Beach

As avid boaters, we are on the water as much as possible. There was really no other choice - we wanted to live where our happiness is highest. San Carlos Bay is beautiful - full of wonderful wildlife, spectacular fishing, and unrivaled sunsets. A 5 minute boat ride will take you right into the Gulf of Mexico, where you can cruise up to Captiva or down to Naples. Mangrove forests and calm backwater is a 10 minute boat ride away. Bring your own kayaks, canoes, or paddleboards and launch right in your backyard! Whether you're looking to relax or take advantage of Florida's playground, this house is perfect for you!

What makes this house unique

Tons of windows allow Florida's sunshine to peek in and fill you up with joy. Three different elevated lanais allow you to relax outside. The NEW pool enables you to soak up some rays while the kids cool off and release some energy. After a long run on the beach or a good day of fishing, let your muscles relax while enjoying the sunset from the hot tub. Save money and indulged in your own home cooking as you can grill your fresh catch of the day or make some sinful burgers! Bring your own kayaks/canoes/paddleboards and launch directly from the floating dock!

When I found this vacation home online the pictures looked beautiful. We decided to have my son's wedding in the backyard under the palm trees by the pool. When I got to the house I was happy to see it was even more beautiful than the picture showed, it was the perfect place for a wedding. We went to the local Publix grocery store and ordered a bridal bouquet, wedding cake and deli platters. The workers at the store were very helpful. The house is in a very easy to get to location by car or boat. We had a cool breeze blowing from the bay so the yard was comfortable to sit out under the palm trees in the shade or in the pool . Every day we saw dolphins and manatees swimming by the dock. We could stand at the seawall and see starfish crawling on the rocks and a lot of different kinds of fish swimming bye. we caught fish off the dock. The owner provided a canoe, for bicycles and two kayaks. My grandchildren use the kayaks and they loved it. We made sure to be back every evening to watch the beautiful sunsets . The view is perfect from anywhere on this property whether it be from the kitchen looking out through the living room you can see the water and the boats going by . A great view from the screen porches on the second level and third level. From the hot tub or the pool you can watch the beautiful sunset. I have already recommended this property to several of my coworkers. And I look forward to coming back next year. The home was very clean and supplied with everything you would need.
