About Keith Rigsby

Sunset House is our personal 'beach house'. After purchasing in December 2007 we invested many hours and dollars in a complete remodel and new boat-fishing dock. Originally from Southern Illinois, growing up on the Ohio River, I have always been a water lover. Sunset House is a dream come true. Come enjoy our dream, but if you are not here, we will definitely enjoy it for you!!

Keith Rigsby purchased this house in 2007

Why Keith Rigsby chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Sunset HOuse is just 30 minutes from our home, but a world away. San Carlos Island/Ft. Myers Beach are totally fantastic, if you can't relax here, good luck at home!!!!

What makes this house unique

Quiet single family neighborhood.. 12 to 15 minute walk to Times Square/Pier area of Ft Myers Beach. Fun days, quiet nights. Best of both worlds.....

Little Peace of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a special getaway to meet up with our grown kids, their spouses and our grandkids together for a family vacation this summer - and could not have found a more perfect home or location for our group of 9. The beautiful open layout on the main level and beautiful of the water, dock, pool and Fort Myers Beach was the perfect canvas for sunny days and amazing sunsets each of the 7 days we were there. The separate downstairs living and sleeping space worked perfectly for the grandkids. Keith, the owner, was extremely responsive and available to answer our questions - and made us feel right at home. The home is incredibly clean, well decorated but very casual and comfortable ... we hated to leave! We've loved the Sanibel/Captiva Island area for over 25 years, but are now new fans of the Fort Myers Beach area - great restaurants, and a hidden gem of a beach (with tons of sand dollars!) Without a doubt, we would highly recommend Sunset House and hope to return again in the future. Thank you Keith for your wonderful hospitality and beautiful home!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We looked, we found it, we booked it, and we loved it! This is a great vacation destination. The house was clean and modern. Wifi and TVs were great. Slept like a baby in the beds. Everything was provided, all we had to do was bring clothes and food. Keith is a great owner, very responsive to any needs or questions. We loved the pool, fishing off the dock, and site seeing all of Ft Myers area. Great restaurants were close by, a dozen within a 5 minute drive. We are looking to go back as soon as we can arrange our next vacation.

I can not say enough great things about this place. The location is perfect. We have stayed at other locations of ft myers beach but none compares to this. The owner went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. This place is old but SOOOOO CLEAN, and updates were obvious. It says it sleeps 10 but with 2 king beds, 1 queen bed, a futon, pull out couch, pull out chair and 1/2, another couch and air mattress it was more than accommodating for our needs. The kitchen was very clean and had a great setup. There is so much space up stairs was perfect for everyone to not be ontop of each other. The washer and dryer worked great and was clean, with the bonus of laundry detergent. All the appliances were clean and updated. The cooking wear was like new and great quality. The pool/ hottub were prefect depth for relaxing yet deep enough for kids to enjoy. All patio furniture was nice, not to mention others left pool rafts and other toys. The umbrella was a great feature as we sat outside for hours. The upstairs and downstairs are not accessible without going outside but was perfect for two families each not disturbing the other. The VIEW, the fireworks view and the water, although the water issue ft myers is having the view was amazing. beautiful sunsets which makes the name of this place perfect. We did NOT want to leave. Do not hesitate to rent this place.

Most excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Sunset House. We have stayed in other places on and around the island and this by far is the very best we have had. The views are second to none and the pool area is quiet and relaxing, the pool is heated which is lovely. The house is perfect for relaxing, cooking and entertaining. The beds are all very comfortable. the whole house is spotlessly clean. The location is fantastic. No getting caught in the heavy traffic trying to get on and of the bridge. A short walk across and you are in the heart of FMB. Choose to stay on San Carlos island and there are three very good bars which serve food. None are late night though. If you are thinking of booking, we would say do not hesitate.

Another exceptional experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just concluded our fourth stay at Sunset House. The property was once again in exceptional shape with everything needed to rest and have no worries for our week. Keith continues to keep us coming back by assuring everything is prepared.

I recommend this home to anyone with any family size. It's close to everything and provides for a worry free stay.

Beautiful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week here with three generations. This home has plenty of room for everyone. The downstairs living area works out perfectly if you have family members with different sleeping routines. Early birds can get up without waking the late sleepers. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Sunset House. The home is beautifully and comfortably decorated and furnished. Anything and everything you could think of has been provided. It is located away from all of the busyness of Fort Meyers Beach but close enough to go over and enjoy it if you choose. Keith, the owner was immediately responsive to any questions or issues and is terrific to deal with. We are hoping to come back again in the future and would recommend it to anyone coming to the Fort Meyers area. Our whole family absolutely loved it.
