Overview

About the property

4 Bed 4 Bath- Sleeps 12 (this has 3+3 upstairs & a Studio Apt. downstairs)

Location, Location, Location! You don't have to cross any street to get to the beach. This wonderful 3 bedroom, 3 bath upstairs + Downstairs 1/1 Apt. beach side vacation home is sure to please. It is located 30 steps to the sand in arguably one of the most beautiful stretches of Fort Myers Beach and close to everything! The beach in this area has sand dunes, sea oats, and of course the sugar white sand that Ft. Myers Beach is known for. You'll find restaurants, bars, shopping, water sports, a marina, and convenience stores close by. There's even a movie theater just around the corner.

Park your car and note that there are fewer steps to the sand than to the front door of the house! Two of the bedrooms have their own private entrances that lead out to the deck that wraps around the house, as well as their own private bathrooms. This beach cottage is fully equipped with everything you'll need to enjoy your Florida vacation, so pack your bags and head this way!

The house was recently remodeled with an updated kitchen featuring professional grade appliances. There is a 55 inch TV in the living room and an open floor plan. Gulf views are can be seen from almost every room in the house.

There is approx. 750 square feet of decking which takes the total living space to over 2000 sq. feet approx., and there are two private parking spots included.

Downstairs there is a large (650sq.ft.) studio style 1/1 apartment that has been recently remodeled.

BEACH EQUIPMENT- I have an array of beach equipment in the garage, but the inventory has a habit of changing quite a bit.

Great spring break week!

  • 5 of 5

This house is nicely updated and stocked with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. The decor is crisp, appliances newer and well functioning, linens fresh and towels plush. Dorae is so easy to work with-prompt in communication and very organized.

The main house is on the second level so would not be suitable for anyone not able to do steps easily. The studio is on ground level making access easier.

Fabulous Location (On the Beach) and a Wonderful Home in Great Condition

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 7 day vacation in this home - all was as advertised and even better. We had 4 adults and two children (ages 3 and 5) in our group. First of all, the location was excellent - mid island, on the beach and far enough from all the congestion around the pier area. The house is spacious, immaculately maintained and the kitchen has more cooking equipment than we have at home - it's all the small details that the owner Dorae pays attention to that made our stay so easy and so wonderful. My wife and I (as grandparents) had our own separate fully appointed apartment on the ground level which our children appreciated (not as much as we did!!!!! ). I give this home my highest recommendation and we are looking forward to the possibility of returning soon. For those without a car, the trolley system is great.

Exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home and attentive homeowner. They thought of every little detail and it was so clean! Beautifully decorated, great layout (downstairs unit gave grandparents space they needed from kid chaos) and upstairs perfect for kids (we have 3 and 5 year old and beach toys and bunk beds were favorites!). The only negative was when vacation was over and we had to leave this paradise. Hope to rent again!

Perfect Get-away

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time with a vacation rental and at Fort Myers Beach. It was absolutely great - great house with lots of room and everything you would need, great beach, many outstanding restaurant choices, plenty to see and do. I would definitely recommend it.
