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

This property goes above and beyond! The outdoor living space is simply amazing! From the pool to the hot tub to the outdoor TV/sound system to the abundance of seating. And, let's not forget about the view of the canal...it is all simply wonderful! The neighborhood is quite peaceful and you're just a short walk away from the beach as well as the shops and restaurants. If you're ok taking a shuttle or uber from the airport, you don't need a car (though it did come in handy for groceries).
The house is very clean and very well maintained! Barb goes above and beyond to ensure you have what is needed for a wonderful stay in their property. There are beach towels, extra blankets, fans, two washers and dryers, plenty of towels, games, an abundance of kitchen utensils/cookware, etc.
Barb is very detailed in her communication and was available for questions. We could not have asked for anything more in a rental home for our stay! I would highly recommend you consider this property for your next stay in Ft. Myers Beach! It is a great value given all the amenities!
Thank you for the awesome review Lora! And so appreciative that you followed up to make sure VRBO posted your review. I'm glad you had an enjoyable trip and enjoyed the amenities we provide :)
Our family of 10 (8 adults and 2 children) had a wonderful trip to Fort Myers! This property had it all and the location was perfect. We loved the pool and grill during the day and spent the evenings walking just a few minutes to dinner in Times Square. Each place we went had live music! The beach was even closer, it was family-friendly but also had many spots along the sand to grab a drink. Barb was very easy to communicate with when needed and her property provided us with a vacation we will never forget! Highly recommend Primo.
Thanks so much Katie! Glad your family enjoyed a memorable stay at our vacation home :)
Family Vacation 2019!
Great property!! The house is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and very clean. A wonderful set up for a single or multiple family stay. The pool and hot tub are beautiful and the surrounding palm trees provide privacy, which is really nice! For boat owners, the location of this house is extremely convenient to the gulf. It was so nice to keep our boat in the water, dock it at the house and be able to wash it down each day. Additionally, the owners were very responsive to any questions we had and were great to work with. I would definitely recommend this house!! Thank you Barb!
Fantastic Spring Break
The house was perfect for our two families of 5. Pool area was our favorite along with the close proximity to Time Square and other restaurants. The short walk to the beach was convenient.
Awesome place Great Location
This home is just as advertised. Great vacation house with a stellar location. House has everything you need and is kept up nice. The pool and spa were great for family fun in the sun. Kitchens have everything you need if you like to cook. The location is really nice, if you like to go on short strolls or bike rides there is no need to drive anywhere. Barb is polite and great to deal with should you have any questions or need anything.
Thanks James! Appreciate you taking time to leave a review and appreciate the compliment :) Glad you enjoyed the home and the location! We love being so close to everything!
This property is amazing! Everything about it is perfect.
We will definitely return to this property. The convenient location was just the beginning. There was adequate parking for 2 full sized SUVS and the layout of the house was very comfortable for our family of 10. The beach theme decor made the island ambience come to life! Everything about this home was well laid out and thought out.
Now for the back yard, OMGosh!!! The pool, spa, deck and patio.. felt like our own little slice of heaven! The landscape was beautiful!
This property is perfect for us with all the amenities available.

For grocery needs: there's a 7-Eleven at the end of the street; Publix Market approximately 3 miles away. And Walmart 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 bikes (some have baskets) 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!
