I have lived in Florida since 1986. Originally from Pennsylvania. I live one block away on this beautiful Lagoon. I'm an interior designer and own a local furniture store since 1988. If you're looking for a peaceful vacation home that is very clean and nicely furnished look no further.
Tedd purchased this house in 2006
I purchased this home originally to have my mother a little closer when the time arises. Family is important to me so until it is needed I decided to make it a rental. I furnished it well to make her comfortable.
Watching the dolphins play in the back yard is the best. Some days they put on a show like you were at sea world. Most days they come into the lagoon to feed along the seawall and I've actually seen them jump completly out of the water. They also like to play with their food so don't be suprised to see them throwing fish in the air a few times before they have their meal. There are also no shortages of manatee that pass by as well. I am truely blessed to live here.
What a wonderful place! Your home is so clean and inviting- we had a wonderful stay. Watched the dolphins and manatee play in the back and spent many hours fishing and walking to the beach. Thanks Tedd for opening your home to us- we will be back!!!
We had a wonderful, relaxing vacation in this delightful Lagoon home at the southern end of Ft. Myers Beach. Except for food, this house has every amenity you would need. The house is pet-friendly so we brought our 2 small dogs. They loved looking out the windows in the Florida room, in addition to watching the fish jumping and the dolphins playing while sitting by the pool in the yard. The house is located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood, and while out walking the dogs, we found the neighbors to be more friendly than even those in our own neighborhood back home! Access to a private beach on the Gulf is a short walk but if you need to drive because of bringing chairs, etc., there's plenty of beach parking in the area.
We met the owner, Tedd, during our stay. He is a sweetheart and will bend over backwards to make sure your stay is enjoyable. He lives in the same neighborhood and is available to help if you need anything.
This was our first experience renting a home rather than staying in a hotel. Unless we're just going somewhere for a long weekend, we'll definitely do this again. And if it's to the Ft. Myers Beach area, we'll absolutely book Tedd's house!
Everything was as advertised
Clean, comfortable, every convenience,grill, dock, pool
Very nice and Ted's is very helpful and pleasant
We will be back next year
This is the second time we rent this house, as we spent such a wonderful time the first time. We had a BIG surprise when we found out that it was better than it was the first time, because the couch in the living room was upgraded and the new couch was even comfier than the previous one! As last time, the house was equipped with anything we may want. Tedd (the owner) was always available for questions and we spent a great week. Because the house has a dock, once again my husband rented a boat and he enjoyed going fishing everyday. Friends visited during the weekends and with the second room there was space for everyone. I spent birthday # 49 and # 50 in this house and I am tempted to reserve it for the same dates for the next 5 years. No matter how stressed you are when you arrive, the house, the location, the local fauna and the view, takes all stress away. Even our dogs had a great time, chasing each other outside and chilling inside with us! We saw dolphins, manatees and this time we had a huge iguana visiting each afternoon (nicknamed Godzilla) that accepts lettuce for dinner if you do not get too close to her/him (?). Would recommend this house in a heartbeat.
The house exceeded the pictures posted online. There was an incredible view from inside the house as well as from the pool deck, gazebo and the dock. It really met all of our needs and wants, which was to be waterfront, have a swimming pool, as well as outdoor areas to relax. Having the kayaks right outside was really a treat and we were able to come and go as we pleased. We saw a manatee, many schools of fish, tarpon and sheep'shead right next to the dock. And several times throughout the week we saw a family of dolphins swimming right in front of us. It was amazing. The location was in a quiet residential area just minutes from the beaches (little hickory is great for elderly parents). Publix is right down the road and there are excellent restaurants all within 10 minutes of the house. We had (4) adults and were very comfortable. I definitely would recommend this for families and older adults, and pets!! Thank you, Tedd, for sharing your wonderful home with us. We will contact you again!
The description for this waterfront home does not do it justice. I think it would have been better stated as "Paradise Awaits". The home is immaculate, the view is spectacular and everything and more is included. The pictures as shown are exactly how it looks, its absolutely breathtaking. My husband and I just spent 2 weeks here and we never wanted to go back to reality. Tedd the owner is only minutes away should you need something. Thank you Tedd for allowing us to share your perfect place.
We saw Dolphins, iguanas and had great fishing. The local marina was super nice and gave some great tips. The home was clean and provided everything we needed for a family of 5 with 3 small children. Tedd was great. He checked in with us and made sure we had everything we needed. He was quick to respond to questions and needs. We will be returning!
