The sunrises and sunsets of Fort Myers Beach are spectacular. This house is perfectly positioned to enjoy both. Open the front door, step inside, and prepared to be amazed! A wall of sliding glass doors provides a full view of the Gulf of Mexico, Lovers Key State Park, Big Carlos Pass Channel and your own personal bird sanctuary and fishing spot. Open the seven sliding door panels and enjoy the warm ocean breeze. In the evening after the sun sets, watch the darkened sky light with a billion stars.

Fort Myers Beach offers more than views and accommodations, right? The white sandy beach, just steps from the door, is perfect for private sunbathing. And if you desire more open water and sand, simply follow the trail to the full 7 miles of white sugar sand shoreline of Fort Myers Beach. Relax in the backyard hammock or use your photography skills to capture nature at its best. This outside space is hard to beat.
Known for its easy access to Lovers Key State Park, Bonita Springs and Naples, this home is located at the south end of the island. One mile north, you will find multiple restaurants, a drug store, shopping and movie theater. A full Publix grocery store is two miles north. Remember, this vacation has every option; quiet and tranquil or outdoorsy and public. There are only a limited number of beach front rentals. So if your vacation plans are to go to the beach, then this is your place. It's all here at 8170 Estero, aka Squeeze Me Inn....where you can squeeze in everybody or everything, or nothing at all. The choice is yours.
Just got back from our family vacation at Squeeze Me Inn beach house! Absolutely beautiful home with everything we needed to have a wonderful family vacation. We had 12 people with 6 young adults who stayed in the first floor apartment area. It was perfect for them they could stay up all night if they wanted without disturbing us "older" adults. There were plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, beach umbrella's to use while we went to the beach. Also there were 2 kayaks and paddle boards that my kids very much enjoyed. There is also a volleyball net to put up but we didn't get a chance to put it up. My father enjoyed the screened in porch area with gliding rocking chairs watching the birds and the boats out on the ocean. The view was amazing, one draw back was there wasn't any beach access behind the house. I saw in the guest book that there are plans to build a bridge to the beach. The bird sanctuary was interesting to see. The elevator was very helpful for my mother who had back problems. And for bringing up groceries. The Publix store was pretty expensive so we drove off the island to Walmart it didn't take to long about 25 minutes away. I highly recommend this very affordable beach house. We would rent this again in the future.
