About Dana Zuber
Back in 1979 my family came to the Ft Myers area and settled in Naples- after graduating from college at FSU I moved back to the northeast to work in NYC- I missed my brothers and my mom...... so in 2001 we bought this home and when we were not visiting we would rent it. I along with my brother manage the house. We love to entertain and being surrounded by family. Our goal is to make your stay a special one! Thanks for choosing our home Dana and Greg
Dana Zuber purchased this House in 2001
Why Dana Zuber chose South Island
We love the tranquility of the Pink House's location; being on the peaceful south side of Fort Myers Beach with quick access to the bay, gulf, and beach. We fell in love with the house (we painted pink) when we first saw it. We vacation at the Pink House and hope that you can enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this House unique
One of the most unique benefits of the Pink House is its private location directly across the street from the beach!! Located on the south end of the island allows for easy access on and off the island! A beautiful canal view off the back of the house and a private pool that is solar heated . You may spot manatees, ospreys, and occasionally dolphins in the back canal. Lover's Key is a short walk over the bridge. Numerous restaurants within a mile and some of the best fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and beaches make this a great place to vacation.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
An absolutely lovely beach vacation!
We enjoyed every moment of our wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable visit to this beautiful spot in the world! The Pink Shell Cottage is perfectly situated at the quiet and peaceful end of Fort Myers Beach. The dock on the canal was able to accommodate our small sailboat with ease - we launched initially at the public boat launch at Lover’s Key a few minutes away. The property’s position made access to the Gulf very simple - my husband enjoyed the company of five curious dolphins on one of his sails! We enjoyed daily walks across the street (not too far at all) to an immaculately clean and private expanse of beach framing both the inlet and the gulf. Amazing shelling - we marveled at the variety of shells we found! Part of the beach is a nesting area for birds and presently a turtle’s nest as well. Picture perfect! We were able to easily visit Sanibel, Captiva, Lover’s Key and Naples - the sunset from the dock at Sanibel’s Lighthouse Park Pier was breathtaking! While we explored a variety of public beaches at each of these locations, our favorite times were spent shelling at the beach across the street and afternoon trips to the public beach access points of Bonita Beach five to ten minutes away for a simple change of scenery. The house was well-equipped for all that we needed - plenty of towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, things to cook with - Publix was an easy trip away for all cooking essentials (plus a Redbox video rental for our one rainy evening and goggles for my youngest daughter.) We enjoyed dining at the eclectic Bubble Room in Captiva and ordered very good pizza from Ray’s our last night before departure. The beds were extremely comfortable and having the washer and dryer was great! The pool was terrific! Pretty, clean, refreshing - it was so nice to sit on the patio or in the pool after a day spent at the beach! The view across the canal is delightful - lovely homes, boats and docks, a visit from manatees and lots of fish! Peaceful and relaxing describe our visit to the Pink Shell Cottage perfectly. It felt private and was so simple to explore everywhere nearby. We would love to have the opportunity to return to this very special spot in the world. So much beauty, so much to see - our family of five enjoyed every moment! Thank you so much for having us! We miss the house already and would have loved to have stayed for another week!
Well thanks so much for the review- we really appreciate it- we try hard to make your vacation time the best it can be-. I am glad you had an awesome time!
The Pink House!
Great home/pool for a family vacation. We found this home to have everything we needed. Of course, the kids loved having a pool available right outside our door. Dana was professional and very easy to work with. I recommend this vacation home to anyone looking for a place to relax and unwind.
Thanks for the review I appreciate it!
Relaxing is your top priority when you stay at the Pink Shell!
Great 4th of July stay
Our family had a great time at the house. It's in a nice location away from all of the busyness of the island. It was perfect to separate my husband and I from my sister and 2 kids based on the house set up. The house was very clean and the washer and dryer made laundry super convenient. The kids loved swimming in the pool and fishing off the dock while my sister had beach access across the road. Manatees visited daily in the canal at low tide entertaining everyone.
A trolley stop is located at the end of the driveway which made getting to the downtown area easy without the worry of parking.
We would definitely love to come back.
Thanks again for bringing your family to The Pink Shell!
Thanks for pointing out the trolley stop- it really is easy to get t the north end without breaking a sweat!
Thanks for being great guests too
The Pink house
Nice house in a great location at the south end of the island. We had a great time and the owner was very pleasant to deal with. Would happily book this house again in the future.
Hi Kevin- thanks for the great review - We work hard to give our guests a great experience.
Please come back next year!
Lovely beach house
Beautiful little beach house with great canal views. Lots of manatee sightings as well. Great pool and outside lanai. Fantastic, quiet location. Loved our stay here. The owner is very conscientious of making your stay comfortable and is great at responding to any and all concerns you may have.
Thanks Michelle! I appreciate all your feedback-
Perfect relaxing vacation home
We had a wonderful stay at the Pink House. The pool was a big hit for our teenagers and the beach was a quick jaunt across the street for nice long walks. We saw so many manatee right in the canal every day and even some dolphin along with an iguana. Dana worked with us when our dates changed as well and we were very appreciative. Highly recommend!!
Hi Janene- I knew you would love the location!- thanks for making our home your vacation
We enjoyed having you all
