About Susan Dunfee

Currently residing in the next town over. Living locally grants me the opportunity to be accessible and to be in the know of what the area has to offer on a current basis. I transitioned from the Pennsylvania to the Ft. Myers/Cape Coral area for eight years. Fell in love with the beauty of southwest Florida and want to share the experience with others.

Susan Dunfee purchased this studio in 2012

Why Susan Dunfee chose Ft Myers Beach

Fantastic location for relaxing and having fun! Perfect place tucked away for beaching, eating at fabulous eateries, and plenty of shopping.. Weather is perfect. The soft white sugary sand feels fantastic beneath your feet. The wildlife is plentiful. Kayaking, Paddle boarding and wave runners all share the glorious Gulf waters. Spectacular sunsets every night. Sanibel Island and Captiva Island is a short drive to enable wonderful shelling and wildlife viewing at Ding Darling Park. The Naples Zoo is fantastic for families. While in that direction, take an air boat ride through the mangroves of the Everglades or shop at the luxurious stores of Naples.

Go to Sun Splash Water Park in Cape Coral.

What makes this studio unique

As they say: Location, Location, Location. This is the place to enjoy peacefulness and eye catching beauty of Ft. Myers Beach. But yet, a quarter of a mile away from all the action of the nightlife and eateries!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mama (94), Caroline and daughter, Shirley (66) Ocala, Florida

Watching Roy Hobbs Baseball Tournament. Rooting for the grandson, Forrest to win! We have so many memories of this beach! Forrest & his wife & 2 children growing up here on this very beach. Feeding seagulls.

And this time the Dunfee's added a wonderful surprise to their fun...

Boogie Boards!!!

And Great Grannie watched under the umbrella.

And the villa was clean, the décor was charming and so comfortable!

Thank you, dear Dunfees

P.S. It has old Florida charm we remember!

Awesome location!

  • 4 of 5

Location could not be better! The room is small but was very clean and had everything we needed! The umbrella and beach chairs were appreciated but unfortunately the umbrella was broken and chairs have seen better days. Only rating 4 stars because 4.5 wasn’t an option. Also seemed a bit over priced for the off season after we got there and were able to compare prices with other places that may be a bit larger. Owner was very easy to work with and very responsive to any questions and provided great recommendations! Would definitely recommend this property!

Inside was clean, comfortable, with beautiful decor.

  • 3 of 5

It was old, the decking needed to be screwed down and painted. No lighting outside unless you left your light on at your door. Posting said was a beach view....but that was through the piling of the 4 or 5 floor condo next door. There was no handicap access for my 94 year old Mom so had to go up and down the stairs. There was a hand railing, but it was hard to hold.

On a positive note it was easy access to the beach which was nice.

That’s what I get for trying to save some money. We won’t stay here again.

Owner's Response: The decking is currently being painted. I delayed the painting of our deck so it would not disturb your stay. There are lights on the decking by the two stairs. Due to turtle nesting season, lighting is at a minimum from May - October. No communication was made to me that an elderly guest needed special needs. The pictures clearly show steps to the unit. There is an additional review that was written by this same guest in our guest book that I would like to share.
