About Ron Norton

Norton family lives in Bucks County Pennsylvania, 50 miles north of Philadelphia.

Ron Norton purchased this house in 2012

Why Ron Norton chose North Fort Myers

Ron is a sailor and was looking for a base camp to outfit and keep and large sailboat for use in the Gulf of Mexico during the winter months. We call the place our Florida base camp. I fell in love with the location and the friendly neighborhood. Fort Myers is a great town to relax and have fun in.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the views of the water, the wildlife, and the friendly neighbors. It is a nice quiet neighborhood with no through roads. It is an ideal place the walk, bike, and enjoy the views. We enjoy the climate during the winter months, with all the sunshine and gentle breezes off the water.

Outstanding! Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week. The house is beautiful. Nicely redone and very spacious and comfortable. Being on the water and having a pool was great for the kids and so peaceful!

We headed over the bridge into Fort Myers and enjoyed dinner and the street fair on Friday night.

A perfect week. I would highly recommend.

My husband and I rented this home for a Christmas Vacation with our 3 sons (ages 11, 8 and 2). My children are still talking about how great the trip was and facetimed their friends every night to show them the pool, or the pier or their rooms. The house was loaded with all the comforts of home from the kitchen to the garage. They had sandwich bags, foil, laundry soap, everything. We fed the birds and turtles every night from our backyard and went alligator searching every morning (didn't see the alligator). The kayak was awesome and again the pool is out of this world. Kids would swim while we cooked dinner and the kitchen overlooks the pool so I could watch them the entire time. Everyone already planning next year's trip. I totally recommend it for families with children. I promise you, you won't hear "I'm bored."
