About Tedd

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

Why Tedd chose Fort Myers Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!!!

Everything was great! The home was everything that was advertised. It was a great deal for the price

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this vacation rental. Beautiful home, great location; just a short walk to the beach or state park. The location is very quite and peaceful. We spent a lot of time at Lover's Key state park, the beach is really nice, and fishing was fun right from the beach, we also did the 1/2 day kayak trip and saw several manatee up close and personal. We used the kayaks at the house to paddle around in the lagoon and canals, fished from the dock, and grilled up the fish we caught on a deep sea fishing trip with Captain Tony. The kitchen has everything you need for home cooking. Several good restaurants within a short distance too at Santini Marina plaza. Skye's has great margaritas & guacamole/chips! Tedd was always available to answer any questions we had about the house and area. We would definitely recommend this place.

Our (beach) home away from home! :)

  • 5 of 5

This Laguna Shores VRBO literally checked every box on our "wish list" for our annual holiday Fort Myers Beach rental.

The owner is especially kind, thoughtful and helpful - even with local recommendations or questions about the property.

Location, location, location was key for us - we were close to everything, yet away from it all. Meaning - we could walk, bike or take a short drive to great restaurants and tourist attractions but yet were nestled away in this cozy little neighborhood where it was peaceful and quiet. GREAT for families and our fur baby (we have a service dog) enjoyed the large yard and close proximity of the beach access for sunset strolls and exercise.

We loved the dock and it was temporarily home to our pontoon boat. We took full advantage of the kayaks the owner loaned us and enjoyed daily visits from playful dolphins and a few sightings of a mama manatee and her baby. My son fished in the channel and we felt very cozy in the warmth of neighbors and surroundings.

The pool was just the right size for our 9 yr old and there were a few spare pool/beach toys to use as well. Spare bikes in garage allowed us to have enough for visitors to use for a ride to dinner (Marina Square boasts great shops and restaurants).

The rooms are tidy and tastefully furnished, kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs, the master bed is uber comfortable and guest room just right for a couple or kids. While it's a "two bedroom" the large couch and also the sofa sleeper in sunroom, allowed for us to have a few friends/family guests for short visits throughout our month long stay. The outside of house is cute and welcoming, and while there are other houses close by, we never heard noise outside and our noise seems to stay in as well.

I loved having breakfast in the dinning room and watching all the wildlife, especially birds. We nicknamed a large Egret bird "Kevin" and he seemed to enjoy visiting us every day.

Having been a VRBOwner myself, my standards were very high and this property exceeded our expectations. So much so, we've already put down deposit/reserved our 2016-2017 holiday stay!

PS - one recommendation, be prepared for the no-see-ums at sundown, read up on best practices or products that work for you and avoid these typical beach/water pests. :)

Another vacation spent in tranquil beauty

  • 5 of 5

This has been our 4th time spent vacationing at Tedds wonderful home.. Let's see. What keeps us coming back ? A great property owner that supplies everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The home is always in great shape and the heated pool and deck area is our most favorite spot. So relaxing. Dolphin, Manatee, and Egret make the spot on the lagoon special. Private fenced in area for your dog as well which gives you peace of mind. Its a 5 minute walk to your private beach on the gulf for great shelling. This is a place where you can unwind and enjoy everything that Ft Myers Beach has to offer. Thank you Tedd for always making our time spent at your home memorable and relaxing.

Had a wonderful time at Tedd's house. It was just relaxing not to have anything to do but enjoy pool and scenery . We were there a week and have 2 ShihTsu that had as much fun as we did. We are definitely looking forward to our next visit.
