|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Beautifully remodelled (2010) detached Villa with Pool. New bathrooms and kitchens in granit. new TV's, carpets tiles plantation shutters and furniture. Just 500ft from seven miles of sugar sand beachfront and watch those magical Sunsets over Sanibel Island and the Gulf of Mexico. Situated on a quite prestigious no through road, on Fort Myers Beach . The property backs on to a tidal saltwater canal from our Boat Dock and Heated Swimming Pool 28 feet x 14 feet
200 metres to a Publix grocery store and a Marina for Boat hire, which can be moored in our Dock.
The calm waters and relaxed atmosphere makes Fort Myers Beach a favourite with everyone. During the winter months the climate is warmer than just a few miles north on the Gulf Coast and during the hot summer months being so close to the sea you enjoy the gentle Gulf breezes.
Fort Myers Beach is Estero Island being some 7 miles long and a half mile wide, we are towards the quieter south end, the north end being more commercial
We just returned to Wisconsin in to from a wonderful vacation on Ft. Myers beach. We loved our stay at the house. It was spacious, updated, and very comfortable. We enjoyed the great pool and all the wildlife right outside the pool enclosure. Herons and egrets landed right in the yard! The beds were very comfortable and we had a great time while there.
It is centrally located and convienent to catch a trolley, only one short block away. Trolleys run the length of the island so you don't really need a car. Here's a tip though, if you are headed North during the busy season go before 3pm, or you will wait a long time in traffic.
It was great to have the grocery store so close only 2 very short blocks. After a long day of hiking, or kayaking, it was great to go back to the large heated pool to cool off and relax. The beach is very close and less busy on this part of the island. I highly recommend this rental.
I talked to several people staying in one room hotels for the same price. Too bad for them!
This bungalow is in a super location, literally 3 mins walk from a white sandy beach. The pool is great, peaceful and clean and looks out on to the dock where you can see manatees and numerous birds from your sun lounger. In the villa the kitchen and bathrooms could do with a little updating, however it does feel very home from home with plenty of spare towels, inflatables, fishing kit, cool box etc.and as you spend so much time outside everything is perfectly adequate. There are some great places to visit in the vicinty; we enjoyed fishing off Fort Myers Beach pier (yellow tail snapper, catfish and snook), swimming and shelling at Lovers Key, shopping at Coconut Grove (?) Mall and eating at the many lovely restaurants in the area. Our favourites were The Bistro next to the nearby Publix (need to book) and Charlies Steakhouse Grill down the road.
Getting to Fort Myers from Miami takes 3hrs and for most of that it is through the Everglades so there are no facilities or petrol. Make sure you take water, it gets hot!
If, like us, you arrive late at night, it is very dark entering the villa as the light switches dont work, you need to put a lamp on!
Would I recommend this place? Yes, very much so, however we did not receive any communication from the new owners so dont expect a receipt for your payment!
This is the most perfect vacation home. I have rented several times in the US and it has always been nice. But this home is something special. It's very clean and well maintained, the site is perfect 150-200 meters to the beach and almost as close to the supermarket (Publix). The home is nicely renovated the last couple of years (it seems) and its done well with great material like granite counter tops etc. The layout of the home is also very good. Three bedrooms (one master with bath) in one area of the house and then dining/entertaining nicely separated by the kitchen from the TV area. The outdoor area with the pool and different seating options (one under roof) is also very nice. And the dock by the canal is just great! A plus also for the landlady - great communications all the way! We are already planning our next trip - we love both the house and Fort Myers Beach!
This villa is very comfortable and located in a quiet and beautful area. We had a fantastic week with a lot of sunshine and nice walks on the beach. We can really recommend Fort Myers Beach, including this villa, and are already planning our next trip back!
Toplage--direkt am Kanal mit Bootsdeck, 2 Min.zu Strand, Supermarkt zu Fuß erreichbar. Leider lassen Ausstattung und Sauberkeit zu wünschen übrig.Teppiche,Türen, Schränke waren schmutzig, die Strandmöbel verrostet und defekt. Die Spülmaschine ist altersschwach und spült nur sehr unzureichend, die Pfannen sind verbogen, so dass nicht mal ein vernünftiges Spiegelei gelingt. Man muss das Haus dringend ein bisschen "aufpeppen". Trotzdem 2 Sterne wegen Lage und Pool, der beheizbar (bei ziemlich kalten Temperaturen sehr angenehm) und groß ist.
The Island of Fort Myers Beach is about seven miles long and is situated some 5 miles from Sanibel & Captiva Islands and 10 miles from Naples, here you will find some of the best beaches in Florida, not to be missed are the beaches of Lovers Key (3 miles from Villa) and Barefoot Beach (5 miles from Villa).The wildlife in our area is amazing, with Dolphin, Osprey, Bald Eagle, Egret etc. often being observed, including Manatee. All of which have been seen from our Villa and/or Boat Dock at various times, it is also less than a one hour drive to the Everglades. The Edison and Ford historical winter homes are some ten miles away and shopping Malls in every direction, such as Tanger Outlet Stores, Edison mall, Miromar Outlet Stores. Restaurants as is Golf Courses are too numerous to mention. More details on our personal web site
Other Activities: Nature, bird watching, Many Championship Golf Courses in area
