Private Canal Front 4 Br Home w/Pool - Minutes Walk To The Beach & Times Square

PRIMO POOL AND PALMS ON FORT MYERS BEACH, IS A RECENTLY RENOVATED, 2100 SQ FT, CANAL FRONT, 4 BR,

VACATION HOME THAT CAN SLEEP UP TO 12 AND IS LOCATED IN THE NORTH END'S TIMES SQUARE AREA.

If you want to be in the heart of the action, but yet be able to slip away quickly to enjoy some quiet time, this is the place! Primo Pool & Palms is located in the much desired Times Square District and is just a few minutes walk to the Beach, Times Square and Old San Carlos Blvd where you will find water sport rentals, beach shops and plenty of restaurants. Use the bikes to ride down to the beach, or its a very short walk. A beach cart and beach chairs are included that you can take down to the beach. Or you can just stay put and relax in the free form pool with tanning platform and attached spa surrounded by the tropically landscaped yard. You can also sit on the dock and look for the manatees and dolphins that occasionally visit the canals. Maybe a kayak cruise for two into the intercoastal to look for Dolphin, Manatee or bird watching. Or maybe just relax with a book in the hammock under the Royal Palm in the sand courtyard. If you're a boater, bring/rent a boat and tie up to the dock and be just minutes from the Gulf! You will feel that you have found a hidden Oasis at Primo Pool & Palms!

Look for Primo Pool and Palms on facebook to see additional pictures and updates.

If this house is booked or you would like a 3BR, another option is our newly updated 3 BR home located just down the street, also on canal with private pool. See VRBO.com/1270159

The rental rate does include access to 6 bikes (no helmets available) and the tandem kayak, along with all of the other great amenities at Primo Pool & Palms.

About Barb

Like so many people we have met while in Florida, we are from the Mid West. We live in Michigan. And like so many fellow Michiganders, we enjoy running away from the cold months that we experience here! And just LOVE Fort Myers Beach for its warm climate, beautiful beaches and laid back vibe!

Barb purchased this House in 2013

Why Barb chose Fort Myers Beach

Loved the Location...Close to everything! We felt it had the best of both worlds with the beach and a quaint town just a short walk away, Yet private and secluded when we want quiet time. We've spent many family vacations in Florida...Orlando, St Pete/Tampa, Clearwater, but we love being further south in Florida with the warmer temperatures that Fort Myers Beach offers during our cold Michigan Winters!

What makes this House unique

We have put a lot of time into renovating the house and yard...a lot of sweat and tears! And are so thrilled with the outcome, especially the pool and the landscaping - So love all of the palm trees! It's so hard each time we have to leave to go back home to Michigan, as we just love our little piece of paradise and are hoping you will love it too!

The outdoor area is amazing with the pool, grill, tv, outdoor dining tables, pool toys, etc. Also the location is ideal. Everyone was able to walk to whatever they wanted to do ... It was a week that I never will forget and hope to do again someday!!! Thank you Barb!

                                                                Thanks Barb! Our family of 12 had a blast celebrating my parents 40th anniversary and 60th birthdays at Primo Pool & Spa. The location is incredible, same with the pool and house. We had everything we needed and you responded quickly to any questions or requests.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thank you Chad! Glad to help and glad the celebrations were a success :)

                                                                Everything you need and even some things you didn’t know you wanted!

                                                                jessica j.

                                                                Our stay at Primo Pool & Palms was absolutely amazing! I have stayed at several properties on Ft. Myers beach over the last 20 years and I can easily say this was my favorite. From location to house amenities it fit our needs perfectly.

                                                                The house is pleasantly decorated with a tasteful beach motif. The furniture was comfortable and pleasing to look at. There is amble seating in the outside pool area, both for lounging and dining al fresco. The beds and bedding were high quality and comfortable. As were the towels, both bath and beach. Anything you may need to cook or serve a meal is there for your convince in not only one but two kitchens.

                                                                We used and enjoyed the bikes and Kayak several times. As well as the cooler and beach chairs.

                                                                The location is perfect all restaurant and shops are within easy walking or biking distance. In fact we never drove anywhere the whole week.

                                                                I’m looking forward to returning next year for a longer stay!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                LOVE! Thank you so much for the glowing review! :)

                                                                Who needs the Beach!

                                                                Ross B.

                                                                Well it's only 5 minutes away if you want it but the amenities and pool/spa at Primo was amazing. Had everything my group wanted. Walking distance, comfortable, pool/spa. I can't recommend enough. Great place to stay and if/when we ever come back to Fort Myers, it will be high on our list. Thank you !

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                LOL...love it! Have been told by other renters that it took them a couple of days to finally make it to the Beach as well. We feel it's a hard place to leave...glad others feel the same :)

                                                                Did not disappoint!

                                                                Aileen B.

                                                                Great property, great location! We stayed here with our family (8 adults and 4 children) plenty of space, beds, towels etc. Pool was awesome, couldn't get the kids out. The owner was GREAT to work with and very accommodating. I was very nervous as this was my first time renting through VRBO and I was not disappointed. Would stay here again.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thank you so much Aileen! So appreciate you taking the time to leave a review :)

                                                                Location

                                                                Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA

                                                                There's plenty to do for all ages! The Beach, just steps away, is loaded with options! Walk the beach and enjoy the sugar sand and blue waters; plenty of watersport rentals; public beach with sand volleyball courts; Shop the beach stores; Enjoy the live music in most restaurants day and night; Walk the Pier; Take a long bike ride on the beach; and make sure not to miss the Sunsets!; Enjoy nearby Parks - Bowditch at North end and Lovers Key at South end; Numerous Boating options including boat rentals, tours, and fishing excursions; Take a gambling cruise on the Big M Casino Boat; Take a scenic drive to Sanibel and Captiva just 15-30 minutes away; There's downtown Fort Myers with plenty of things to do (Ford and Edison's Winter Homes, Giant Flea Market, Murder Mystery Dinner Train, Broadway Palm Dinner Theater and so much more; There's golf (Shell Point and The Dunes on Sanibel are close by) and miniature golf. Feed the baby alligators at Smugglers Cover Putt-Putt!; And so much more. The hardest decision you will make while you stay at Primo Pool & Palms is whether you want to leave and explore or just stay at the house and enjoy the hidden Oasis of the pool and yard! For grocery needs: there's a 7-Eleven at the end of the street; a Topps Market approximately 1 mile away and a Publix Market approximately 3 miles away. And a new Walmart just opened up recently on San Carlos Blvd shortly before crossing over Matanzas Bridge and is only 3.5 miles away and is on the Trolley Stops as is the other Markets. Or just take one of the 6 bikes (several have carts) to grab a few groceries. For fresh fish and shrimp, visit Trico Seafood Market...just a kayak ride across the Intercoastal! There's also a Farmer's Market located under Matanzas Pass Bridge on Friday mornings. There's another Farmers Market on Tuesdays at Santini Plaza at the South end of the Island. Farmers Markets are seasonal. Restaurants/Bars: There are so many options all just a short walk or bike ride away! The Beached Whale at the corner of our Street is one of our favorites with views of the ocean from the upper deck. Some other favorites: Salty Crab where you can sit at picnic tables with your toes in the sand; Matanzas with choices for finer dining on lower level or casual on their upper deck. Both with beautiful views over the Intercostal. Doc Ford's just over the Causeway also has great Intercoastal views with a great menu and is walkable/bikeable. Pierside and Sunset Beach Grille are great locations for ocean views and to view the sunset. If you are in the mood for crab, you must try the garlic crab at SOB (Smokin Oyster Brewery) YUM! There are also numerous fun little places along the way to pop into...The DogHouse, also at the end of our street, has great hot dogs but also makes a great burger! Don't want to go out, and don't want to cook...order from Ray's Pizza. It's really good pizza and they deliver! Make sure to get the breadsticks! Tiki Bar and The Cottage are great for late night fun. So many great choices! Too many to list them all! You will want more than a week to try to get to them all!
