Enjoy the breathtaking sunsets from the deck of our 2 bedroom 2 bath direct beachfront home on the white sandy beach of Fort Myers Beach. Freshly painted interior and new deck.

Central location is close to it all. Walk to Times Square and the Pier and enjoy many unique shops and restaurants. Rent jet skis, go fishing or parasailing.

Across the street is the public kid-friendly pool, rec center with tennis and basketball courts, the library and the Matanzas Nature Preserve where a walkway through the mangroves takes you to the back bay to watch the sunrise, or to catch a glimpse of a manatee or dolphin.

There are many restaurants and shops close. Grocery store 200 yards from the house and another 1 mile to the south. 3 miles to the south is a public golf course. There is a close beach trolley stop which takes you all over the island or to Lovers Key State Park for 50 cents.

Ein sehr gepflegtes Ferienhaus direkt am Strand

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren zu fünft ( zwei Erwachsene und drei Kinder) Ende August 2016 dort und hatten eine tolle Woche. Das Haus ist absolut sauber und gepflegt, die Einrichtung ist vielleicht nicht mehr die Neueste, aber ansprechend und freundlich. Die Lage ist perfekt direkt am Strand gelegen und wir hatten täglich Aussicht auf Delfine. Leider war das Meer zu dieser Zeit etwas bräunlich und trüb, was wohl an dem Fluss Caloosahatchee liegt, der in Fort Myers ins Meer mündet. Aber auch eine Fahrt nach Sanibel-Island oder Fort Myers Beach Süd ergab kein klareres Wasser. Es liegt wohl an der Jahreszeit. Alles in Allem ein schöner, erlebnisreicher Urlaub in Florida mit einer hübschen Unterkunft.

Great Vacation Area

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at our owner's home tremendously. It was very relaxing and so close to the beach. There were activities close by and excellent restaurants nearby also. I would highly recommend this property to future renters.

Nice Beachfront Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for a week. The house was very clean and comfortable in a great location. The house is perfect for a family of four or a couple. The property was big enough to accommodate my boat which was a big plus for me. This is an older home and can use some updates but had no negative impact on our stay. The owner was very pleasant to deal with. I guess the question is...would I rent this house again? The answer is YES

Memories were made here!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here the last week on June 2016 for 5 days. This was my family's first time using VRBO. We were so pleased with this beach cottage and location. This house is right on the sand with basically having your own beach. Waking up to the sound of the waves was awesome. The sunsets were the best and really enjoyed them from the porch. Our dog loved his time romping in the water and then enjoying people watching from the great porch. Our girls laid on the beach to watch the stars each night. When we arrived, the house was clean, neat and very welcoming. Our two 15 year old's never said the words "I'm bored!". This house is a great place for families looking to have fun, relaxation and to make memories. The grocery store is very close and has everything you need. We did the guided dolphin tour through Adventure Tours behind the Pierview Hotel and it was the best jet ski ride/tour. Town Square is very close. You can walk or it is a 5-7 minute car drive with lots of parking opportunities. We could not have asked for a better experience and time. Looking to book our next time here in the near future! It was a great beginning to our summer.

Cute Cottage

  • 3 of 5

I stayed at this cute home on the beach with my husband and two kids (Under 5 years old). The house was charming and quaint, as pictured. In my opinion the house can use a little bit of TLC. However, the cottage worked for us four. My only major issue was the pathway to the beach. It was not cleaned up well, the foliage was overgrown and crept into the passage way. It would be great if this area could be maintained a little better especially when there are small children. On the last day, we did encounter a bee issue. There was a swarm of bees located underneath the house where our car was parked. Then we noticed over 10 bees in the master bedroom which we had to kill behind the shades. We had to pull all of our things out of the room and close the door. Luckily it happened as we were packing up getting ready to check out. Location was amazing, close to restaurants, grocery store and ice cream shop. We had dinner twice at Charro Brothers, a Mexican Restaurant less less than a 10 minute walk, we highly recommend it. Okay for a weekend getaway.

Too many things that needed repair replacement with only 100 characters to use.

  • 1 of 5

Broken front window, dining room fan didn't work, rusting microwave and overhead stove vent, nasty bed pads, broken tangled window blinds and worst of all a refrigerator that reeked of spoiled seafood. Tried to clean but couldn't even open the door without stinking up the whole cottage. Had to keep the bedroom door closed at night to keep the smell out. Bought a styrofoam cooler at 7/11 to keep cold things cold. It had to be evident to anyone cleaning the place after visits that this was a severe problem. Desperately needs about a 5 grand update. Cottage is outdated and worn out.

Owner's Response: Although the house is an older home we do our best to keep it clean and comfortable for our renters. I have received nothing but positive reviews on my property and only wish that this renter would have contacted me upon arrival with his concerns. I was not made aware of the issue with the refrigerator until the renter had stayed at the house for 3 nights. As soon as I was told I began making arrangement for a new refrigerator. The previous refrigerator was only 1 year old, but the previous renter had left a piece of fish in there to rot during their stay. I'm not sure why anyone would do that, but not all renters are considerate of the damage they do. We are constantly doing our best to keep the house in a good condition. Since this stay we have replaced the dining fan, microwave, bed pads and refrigerator. The windows and siding will be replaced in the offpeak season. Being out of state I am not always able to inspect the property, but as soon as I am made aware of any issue I take care of them. The house is not new, but is always kept clean as you can see from my previous reviews. The location is perfect to enjoy all that Fort Myers Beach has to offer.
