About The Owner

Our family purchased the home in 1995. We traveled to Ft Myer's Beach for many, many years and rented various properties before buying this home on the north end of the island. We do not get to visit Ft. Myer's as often as we would like. But, we are happy to open our home for others to enjoy through out the year.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Why The Owner chose Fort Myers Beach

The north end of Ft. Myer's Beach is a quiet and more secluded area of the beach. Yet our home is not too far from the peir area. So, it is a close walk to shopping and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Our home sits right on the beach and offers great views, lots of good times and plenty of great memories for families to enjoy for years to come.

Fantastic Location, wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at The Sandbox. The location of the house is amazing. You truly have beach front access and awesome view. The house has two different balcony's that you can sit on and watch the sunrise and the sunset. I was worried about not having a beach chair, but when we arrived we seen a stack of beach chairs under the house that we could use all week. We had 10 people staying at the house and everyone was comfortable with their sleeping arrangements. The AC worked very well considering how many times everyone was in and out of the house. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and plenty of plates, cups, and silverware for all of us. We had two refrigerators which was nice so we didn't have to make as many trips to the store. The pier and shopping strip is within walking distance. Its a nice area to grab a bite to eat or do some shopping. Jet ski and other rentals are right on the beach near the house. The beach area was never over crowded. I highly recommend staying at this house. We had a great time!

Wonderful in every way!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sandbox for two weeks in Feb. 2016. The home was all it was listed to be and so much more. The deck was our favorite place. Although there were lots of people at the north end of Ft. Myers beach, we never heard any "people noise" during the whole time we were there. Walking to Times Square was a favorite activity. We only used our rental car to get groceries..... loved all of the walks on and off the beach. We will stay again sometime in the not too distant future. Rent this home with confidence.

Excellent view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here recently and loved it! The location is terrific! Close to the nightlife of Times Square, but far enough away that it's quiet and not crowded. It's also an easy walk to Bowditch Park. The view is unobstructed of the water and sunsets. There is a huge beach in front of the house, so plenty of room to spread out without others too close by. The kitchen was up-to-date. One of the pull-out couches is in a bedroom with a queen size bed, so plan accordingly if you have a large group. We thoroughly enjoyed this property and would definitely rent it again.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Just to clarify, one of the master bedrooms does has a couch in it. But, the pull-out couch for additional sleepers is in the living room. It is the only bed that does not have much privacy and is probably better suited for children. But it is still right next to a bathroom, if needed during the night.

Great family vacation location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is great for a large family/group. There are 4 bedrooms and lots of bathroom space. We loved being able to walk right out the back door and onto the beach. The house is within walking distance of restaurants and shopping and yet still on the quiet end of the island where it is quiet and peaceful.

Beach front perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

WE HAD AN AMAZING WEEK! The Sandbox is exactly what they show and advertising. You step off the deck, and onto 150 ft of pure sand. We had the beach almost to ourselves, as the Sandbox is located down from the public beach areas. The location is great, as the Square is only a short walk away with fun shopping, and amazing restaurants A 711 store is close, but has limited selection, but 4 miles away is a great Publix grocery store.

We walked every morning, an you can walk for 4-5 miles on the beach. We saw dolphins every morning.

We had four couples (all over 55), and we were very comfortable in the home. We drew cards for 1st choice in rooms, so all was fair. One room has twin beds, so swapped rooms mid week.

The home had plenty of linens, bedding, towels, and a full working kitchen, and a great washer/dryer.

The home was very clean when we moved in, and smelled wonderful.

The kitchen/living room/deck furniture was perfect for us.

Sara, was everything we wanted in a great communicator, making our booking easy, answered all our questions right away, and we had no surprises at all.

Loved it, and would recommed this.
