Looking for that prime location for your vacation get-a-way? Look no further than 280 Ostego. This fantastic pool home is located at the north end of the island, just a 5 minute walk from Times Square, and a 3 minute walk to the beach. One of the greatest aspects to the location of this home is that you are close to all the action of the Pier, restaurants, nightlife and shopping, but in a quiet residential neighborhood where you can retreat to the peace and quiet that this home affords you.
Brand new furnishings and decor, await your arrival into this three bedroom, three bath home with a private, in-ground, electric heated pool. Pulling into the driveway you'll notice the well manicured yard and beautiful Estero Bay right across the street from the house. The front upper enclosed porch will be one of your favorite spots to enjoy breakfast and watching the boats in the Bay or just relax and enjoy the water views from the oversized elegant furnishings there. Of course being so close to the water will provide you with those Bay breezes to help cool you during the day and night.
The layout of the home is an open concept living area. The large, fully equipped kitchen, has a great island that allows you to cook and entertain all at the same time. Watch TV in the living room on the comfortable furnishings, or connect to the WiFi and catch up with family and friends. There are two sleeper sofas in the living room for additional sleeping areas if needed, making the total maximum occupancy at 10.
Just down the hall you will find two bedrooms. Each has a queen size bed with in-room TV. The master suite has its own private ensuite bath, where the guest bedroom utilizes a full bath in the adjoining hallway. On the ground level of the home, poolside, you will find the third bedroom with a queen bed, full bathroom, and laundry room area.
After a fun day at the beach, retreat back to the house for a dip in your private, in-ground electric heated pool. Grill out on the gas grill and enjoy your dinner poolside bug free in the screened in lanai.
This home also comes equipped with 4 beach bikes for touring around the island! The owner has tried to think of everything you could want or need to help make your vacation in paradise a special vacation retreat at their home. For our guests with allergies, this home has been designated both smoke free and pet free.
within 20 minutes I called to DBR to let them know that the pool screen had LARGE tears in it I was told that maintenance will be there to repair ,no one ever came ,the refrigerator water did not work, the window blinds had knotted cords at the end , a child hazard , extremely old windows where you could see sunlight through the sides of the screens, the MB ceiling fan did not work, I scratched my my arm on the broken towel rail in the MB shower, don't walk up the stairs in your bare feet the wood was old and splintered , and the 2 sofa beds were just pieces of crap, the backsplash in the MB bathroom had soap scum on it
The lower bed room was a little humid, and the pool screen needs to be fixed , but other then that we were very impressed ! It was beautiful and had so many extras !! The pool toys and extra beach towels were a great touch . We also had a few problems at check in with the stove and a lock and I felt they were fixed it a good timely matter. We would rent this house again!
We closed out the summer with a bang and took a family vacation to Fort Myers Beach and stayed in this house. I cannot begin to write how much fun our family had at this house! We actually started out the week in Orlando and Disney World and at the end of the vacation the kids told us next time they want to skip Disney and spend the entire vacation at the beach. Wow! Each morning we would load up the wagon with beach toys, chairs, towels and a cooler (all available with the house!) and walk the short 2 blocks to the perfect, white sand beach where we would spend hours playing in the ocean. After the beach we would walk back to the house and cool down with an incredibly refreshing swim in the pool. It was so nice to have our very own pool to enjoy whenever we wanted. Each night we tried a different restaurant for dinner (and fun ice cream parlor for dessert of course!), all within walking distance from the house. It was so much fun! The kids especially loved the old-school touch screen gaming system located in the house for use, this was a great way to keep them having fun while we were still waking up in the morning. We can’t wait to come back and spend another amazing family vacation here!
What a wonderful way to vacation. This house was wonderful. Beautiful pool, slept 7 of us very comfortably, wifi, cable tv, bikes, towels, gas grill, etc. Location is fantastic. Within walking distance to the beach, the pier, Time Square, restaurants, movie cinema (it does rain sometimes) and stores. We found a rec center within biking distance that our 19 year old could work out at for $4.00 per day. I would recommend the Beached Whale, Yunctan, Parrot Key for dinning. Sanibel Island was great, and a must see. Will be coming back to Fort Meyers Beach again. I could not think of staying anywhere else! This house was perfect for our family.
Had an incredible family vacation at this wonderful house! The house is in a beautiful quiet neighborhood, but SO close to everything! Parked the car in the driveway and never used it all week. We were able to walk to the beach, the pier, Times Square and all of the restaurants and shops! House had everything we needed - fantastic pool, wifi, cable tv, bikes, beach chairs, etc, etc. Will be coming back to FMB and staying at this house again!
Booked this for a family get away, hoping for the best. The house was better than I could have hoped for! Was SO close to everything. We were able to go anywhere we wanted without ever having to use the car! Spent a few days just relaxing in the quiet and privacy of the beautiful pool and enjoying the home. Walked to dinner almost every evening, walked to the beach and even used the bikes to ride around the island with the whole family!
