Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Sunset Paradise is a magnificent beach front home located DIRECTLY on the Gulf of Mexico , mid-island in quiet Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Beautifully landscaped and decorated, Sunset Paradise provides a retreat with all the luxury and comforts of home.

Stunning sunset ocean views enhance your meals from the dining room, and three different porches or patios overlooking the ocean. Catch your dinner of trophy snook, redfish, and trout right out your door. Or, just relax in your beach front hot tub enjoying the ocean breeze, and leave the fishing to the pelicans and dolphins, who will provide you with an aerial and aquatic ballet, as they search the Gulf for breakfast.

Walk the miles of beach. Enjoy the thrill of beach combing for buried treasures and wading the sand bar at low tide in search of sand dollars, live shells, and giant starfish. The beach is one of the safest in the world with a very gradual drop off.... undertow or rip currents are very, very rare.

Our home is decorated with tropical furnishings, tile floors, a modern kitchen, and all the conveniences of home including free wireless internet. With four bedrooms and four baths, Sunset Paradise comfortably sleeps and is limited to 10 people (8 adults and 2 children). The house is very child friendly with high chair, playpen/crib, and stroller available for your use.

The 46’ private swimming pool is designed for all ages with both 6 inch and 2 foot deep wading areas as well as a six foot deep end. The entire pool and patio area is surrounded by a fence for the safety of little ones. The grounds are lushly landscaped to enhance your vacation privacy.

Sunset Paradise is one of the nicest homes on Fort Myers Beach; a truly spectacular property. Our goal is to provide your home away from home and Sunset Paradise is designed to be luxurious at an affordable price. Thank you for not smoking in or bringing your pets to Sunset Paradise.

We suggest that you talk to us by phone before booking Sunset Paradise online so that we can insure that you understand all the features of the villa. Furthermore, you will have the comfort of knowing that you are dealing with a real person that actually represents the villa you are booking and not an internet scam artist. Please call Kathy at 541-324-9214 or email us and we will call you.

Your hosts, the Jones family, would love to share with you their little piece of Paradise.

Fabulous Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Paradise is a spectacular vacation home! Both inside and out, it reflects owner's pride and excellent taste. It was perfectly clean and sparkling when we arrived. We have rented a number of homes on the Gulf and this one has been the best. The new kitchen is beautiful and a pleasure to work in. We appreciated the organized cabinets and drawers which made food preparation so easy. It was a nice touch to have some basic seasonings in the cabinet as well as paper products which we replaced on our shopping trips. The four bedrooms each having a bathroom was a big plus. The decor of the house makes it very comfortable and enjoyable. Those beach towels are luxurious. The owner and property manager provided helpful information. They are efficient and friendly. This house is a big hit! It met all of our expectations and more!

Our family had a wonderful week together. We especially enjoyed the short walk to the shore, the refreshing pool and the calming waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The sky is magnificent whether at sunset, daylight or even overcast and stormy. We dined at some great restaurants, too. We are grateful to have found this gem and hope to be back again. Our thanks for sharing your paradise with us!

Absolute Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned this trip as a Christmas gift for ourselves, three adult children, son-in-law and three grandchildren, ages 6, almost 4 and 1. Best Christmas gift ever! I did a lot of research and we decided on Sunset Paradise because of its location right on the beach (for me), pool (for the grandkids), and four bedrooms and baths ( enough privacy for everyone). The house is gorgeous and was sparkling clean when we arrived. It was stocked very well with linens, kitchen items, baby furniture and beach and pool toys (we left a few new ones we purchased).

We went downtown on a few occasions for lunch and shopping but I really didn't want to leave because we had so much to do there! Our two older grandkids practically lived in the pool and all the kids enjoyed playing on the beach and looking for shells.

We decided not to rent a car since there is a trolley stop right across the road but our son did rent one mid-week and it came in handy for groceries and activities the kids wanted to do. The Publix is less than a mile away but a trip there can take up some time when you need to wait for the next trolley. It is a fairly easy walk there but not on the way back with heavy bags! Next time I would rent a car if taking the whole family. We did use Gina's Grocery Delivery and planned it to arrive shortly after we did. That worked out great since we had a big order when we arrived and didn't have to worry about shopping right away. They were very friendly and accommodating and the fees were reasonable.

Sunsets were gorgeous every night and we enjoyed grilling supper while enjoying them and relaxing in the hot tub after dinner.

This vacation was worth every penny we spent and you will not be disappointed!

70th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for my husband's 70th birthday celebration and it was not a disappointment! We were impressed at how clean the house was when we arrived and enjoyed the hot tub and heated pool. It is nicely furnished and laid out for 5 couples with a bathroom in each bedroom which was really nice. It was nicely stocked with pots and pans and utensils too. We will definitely be back in the future!

Sunset Paradise-Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

We booked the July 4th, 2016 week at this property back in July of 2015. Having spent a week there in the summer of 2014, we knew what was waiting for us and, at times, it seemed as though this year would never pass.

I am happy to report that this year's experience was as terrific as expected.

First of all, this house has a new genuine "summerlike" appearance with the new siding and blue roof. It really stands out when you view it from the beach. And, as for the amenities; they are still as advertised.

Six adults and four grandkids made up our party and with the four bedrooms and private bath for each, everyone had plenty of space and privacy. It was immaculate when we arrived and the cleaning crew was arriving to ready it for the next set of guests as we departed. I counted 176 steps from the front porch across the sand beach to the edge of the Gulf of Mexico. The area has had some bad publicity as of late with regards to the Blue-Green Toxic alge but there was none to be found anywhere on the beach or even in Estero Bay behind the property. Several "locals" said that what little there was working it's way across the state was still a good distance away from Ft Myers and not expected to impact the area. The water was as warm, clear and inviting as ever. The kids spent hours in the pool. It was actually difficult to drag them away from the place to go sight seeing and the like.

Sunsets haven't changed either - spectacular right over the water towards Sanibel Island. Only wish they could have lasted a bit longer each evening.

We rented a pontoon boat on Estero Bay, took a boat tour out near Sanibel Island, ate out, cooked at the house both in the kitchen and on the outside grill, walked the beach, swam, went shelling; you name it.

There are numerous restaurants on Ft Myers Beach itself and nearby - less than 15 minutes away in Bonita Springs. Your are maybe five minutes away from a fully stocked grocery store. Your parking at the house in plentiful-we had three cars-and off the road. It's difficult to even see the adjacent houses although they are steps away.

All in all, our group of ten had a fabulous week. We will be back. We didn't want to leave. You won't want to either.

Stunning sunset ocean views enhance your meals from the dining room, and three different porches or patios directly on the Gulf. Catch your dinner of trophy snook, redfish, and trout right out your door on one of the best surf beaches in Southwest Florida. The fishing is super in the spring, summer, and fall when Snook and Redfish congregate on the beach. Or, just relax in your beach front Hot Tub enjoying the ocean breeze, and leave the fishing to the pelicans and dolphins, who will provide you with an aerial and aquatic ballet, as they search the Gulf for breakfast.
