Overview

Florida House Rental Photos and Description

Single Family Home, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Monthly rentals (minimum one month); private home on cul de sac; 2 bedroom + den; sleeps 6

Welcome to our vacation home which went through a complete transformation in 2012. Since then we tackle a project or two during our yearly visits to make the home more updated and with a few more amenities. This past visit we updated the landscaping by the garage, installed a new kitchen faucet, installed new base master bathroom lighting, added a vanity stool to the master bathroom, purchased two new beach umbrellas for the beach chairs, purchased new grilling tools, exchanged the propane tank, and added a metal wall art to the lanai.

Our most recent purchase was a new lanai set. The chairs are so comfortable that you can enjoy the entire evening outside. We also updated the back garden which you can enjoy the view from the lanai or the master bedroom.

Our single family home is located at the end of a cul de sac with a very private lanai. The community pool is right down the street and the beautiful resort pool a short ride away.

This unit is located in Legends Country Club which was voted as the best golf course in Southwest Florida! If golf is not your passion you will certainly enjoy the resort pool along with the on-site restaurant and bar. Legends also has a terrific tennis program. Included in your stay is an on-site workout facility with a variety of exercise classes Monday through Friday.

Legends is located west of route 75 closer to the beach and near grocery stores, restaurants, and shops. You will not be at a loss of what to do when you stay at Legends Golf and Country Club.

Our unit is a 2 bedroom/2 bath single family home with a 2 car garage (no need to dodge the rain drops or get into an overheated car!). The entire 1500 square feet home has been painted and completely furnished with high end pieces. There is crown molding throughout the main living areas, bedrooms, den, and kitchen. In 2014 we added electronic hurricane shutters on the lanai, hurricane impact resistant windows in the front of the house, and accordion shutters on all other windows. If your stay involves a visit by mother nature, rest assure that you and your possessions are protected.

Great Room: The freshly painted and newly furnished living and dining room boasts a beautiful dining room table, sofa and 2 occasional chairs. The living room also has a 55' LCD high definition television.

Bedrooms: The master has a king size bed, 39' HD TV, a walk in closet and a master bath with dual sinks, walk-in shower, and a separate toilet room. The guest room has 2 twin beds and a 32' TV. The bathroom is right around the corner. The den is furnished with a queen sofa bed (with a pillow top mattress topper) to accommodate extra quests. It also boasts a 32' TV.

Kitchen: The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need including Circulon pots and pans, coffee maker, dinnerware for eight, cooking utensils, entertainment dishes, etc. Also, all the appliances are brand new; the refrigerator is a large capacity side by side with ice dispenser and filtered water in the door!

Lanai/Patio; Enjoy your evening on our beautiful PRIVATE screened in lanai. The lanai has a comfortable sitting area and with a dining table that seats six guests! Of course there is a gas grill for your outdoor cooking!

Garage: The attached 2 car garage has an automatic garage door opener. It also stores all the extras you may need i.e. cooler, portable chairs, beach chairs/umbrellas, pool noodles, his/her road bikes, bike pump, etc. No need to park your car in the hot sun!

Laundry: The laundry room has an extra large capacity stackable washer and dryer. No bending over to put laundry in the washer or dryer as the washer is top load and the dryer is on top and front load.

Wireless : The entire unit including lanai has secured wireless internet access.

All of the above PLUS golf at one of Southwest Florida’s finest courses.

Please note that this unit is a pet and smoke free unit. Please respect this request.

We love spending time in our Legends home...please take a look at our website as I am confident you will too!

About Eileen

We purchased this home in September of 2012 as incentive for retirement which is more than a few years away. We live in cold and sometimes snowy Buffalo, NY so a nice warm get away is in order. We love to play golf and have fallen in love with Legends Golf and Country Club. What we have found during the last few years of renting our home is that we love the hospitality business. We've had many renters who we now consider friends. We love sharing our home with others!

We like a nicely decorated comfortable home which we have duplicated in our Legends home. Phil loves his sports, thus the 55 inch TV. Thank goodness the living room is large enough to handle that size! I need to be connected to work when we visit our Legends home, therefore we have a robust secured wireless connection!

Eileen purchased this house in 2012

Why Eileen chose Florida

Legends is a financially stable golf and tennis community. The grounds are impeccable and the services extensive. You will love the resort pool and the on-site restaurant and bar! This property is close to a grocery store, Outlet Mall, restaurants, baseball fields, eco-nature tours, etc.

Also, we visit the home at least twice per year and during each visit we tackle a home improvement. We've installed hurricane shutters, new a/c, new hot water tank. We've replaced the living room area rug and hung all new blinds in the bedroom and den. We always want the home to be comfortable and up to date. Our next project for May will be a new lanai conversation set which will make spending time in the lanai much more enjoyable.

What makes this house unique

Gated community with a robust golf and tennis program. If that is not your 'thing' there are plenty of biking and walking routes within Legends. Pack your clothes! That is all you will need!

What a Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to get away from the cold north (which really was not that cold this year) for a recharge in Florida. We picked a perfect rental home for this recharge. The owner told us we only had to pack our suitcase and she was correct. The house had everything we needed from linens, cookware, beach chairs/umbrellas, and coolers. We loved taking the bikes for a ride in the evening. Our rides helped us to acclimate to the community.

Our favorite time of the day was sitting in the lanai in the morning watching the different species of birds. One morning we had a roseate spoonbill, wood stork, green heron, and a variety of egrets feeding in the small creek behind the home.

The location was perfect; close (but not too close) to route 75, Publix, restaurants, and pharmacies. Our favorite was the Legends Pub which was so convenient and the food very good. We loved having a late dinner on the patio.

Seeing we were away from work it really helped having the strong WiFi so we could keep connected. The WiFi was strong everywhere even in the lanai.

We would highly recommend this home. The owners are fantastic and truly do everything to make your stay fantastic. Thanks for all you did.

Enjoyable Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our two-month stay at this property was very pleasurable. The home is well-maintained and equipped with everything one would need, including a bathroom scale that helps one try to stay on track, weight-wise. We found the home's description on the VBRO site to be quite accurate. My favorite surprise was finding bathroom showers totally free of mold and mildew!

We concur with the previous reviews that you can scan for further information—especially the ease working with the owners via email. Eileen was more than willing to answer all questions (of which I had many) in a very timely manner.

Our Winter Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time rending a home in Fort Myers and it was a very plesant experience because the owners were very thoughtful and well organised. From the first e-mail to the last it e-mail it was a wonderful experience.

The house was very clean and beautifully furnished. They thought of everything while furnishing it. Every room had a TV. The wifi without itruption saved my life. Though Legends was known for its Golf I chose it for its Tennis Program. The Tennis pro Todd was very helpful. He introduced me to other tennis players and I had no problem finding people to play with. The fittness room, Dining hall,The pub and Pool every thing was beautiful. If it is available I will be happy to rent it again.

Owner's Response: Xavier, Thank you for your kind comments. Phil and I are so glad you enjoyed your time at our home. And yes, the tennis program at Legends is second to none! I'm glad Todd was able to assist with your tennis needs. Keep us in mind for any of your future travel needs. Eileen
