Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our Gulf-front unit is directly on the Gulf of Mexico, with magnificent sunsets. Our recently renovated two bedroom cottage decorated condo is sparkling clean, bright, and comfortable. It’s a home, not a hotel room. Our previous guests all rave about the cleanliness and amenities provided.

Everything you need is waiting for you, just add your groceries and summer clothes. A full size washer and dryer are in the unit, and a gas grill is on the beach, ready for a sunset BBQ.

The Gulfside heated pool was just recently retiled and resurfaced and is very resortlike.

The pool area has a very tropical setting with beautiful Gulf breezes and Gulf views.

Restaurants and shopping are located within a five minute walk. A golf course is across the street. Renting a car is not always necessary, a trolley will take you the full length of the island for additional shopping, supermarket, restaurants, and “Times Square”, our small Key West like downtown area. Boat rentals are available at nearby Fish Tale Marina.

Our condo is located on the southern “quiet” end of the island. We are located directly on what is called the double beach. We have a beautiful Critical Wildlife Area/ bird sanctuary between us and the Gulf of Mexico, called Estero Beach Lagoon. This area has recently been named as one of the top 100 best birding areas in North America. Here you will see a variety of birds on a daily basis, including Heron, Egret,Pelicans, Roseate Spoonbills, Eagle, and many other shorebirds. The main beach is a short beach walk around, or across to the sandbar.

Eden House is a small friendly low rise building with only 35 units. Enjoy the inviting beachside heated pool, our warm, year round temperatures, Gulf Breezes, seven miles of white sandy beaches, and an unobstructed view of the Gulf from inside the condo. We await your visit.

About Shelley Sue Williams

We are originally from Long Island, New York. twelve years ago we picked Fort Myers Beach as a vacation destination and fell in love with the island.

We loved it so much we moved down here full time!

What we love about Fort Myers Beach is #1, the weather, and

#2, the feel of living on a Caribbean island, with all of the ammenities just a few minutes away.

Living on Fort Myers Beach allows us the ability to be active outdoors all year round. We enjoy playing tennis, kayaking, fishing, boating,long walks on the beach, biking, and more.

We love the proximity to all of the great local restaurants, state parks, and cultural activities too.

Shelley Sue Williams purchased this condo in 2002

Why Shelley Sue Williams chose Fort Myers Beach

We actually bought our condo to use for our home, not for a rental. After 8 years, we decided to purchase a 3 bedroom condo and put this condo into the rental program in Dec. 2008.

This location, at the South end of Fort Myers Beach, is known as the 'quiet end of the island.'

It is close to shopping, restaurants, golf, boat rentals, a branch of the post office and has

easy access on and off the beach through Bonita Springs.

It is also only 2 miles from Lovers Key State Park, one of the top 10 beaches in the US.

What makes this condo unique

The location of this condo on Estero Beach Lagoon is superb!

The birdwatching is unparalleled in this area. On a daily basis you can see a large variety of birds including Osprey, Egret, Heron, Roseate Spoonbills, Pelicans, and many other shore birds. We have a resident Eagle that has been recently spotted fishing for dinner.

The pool at Eden House was resurfaced and retiled in May, 2009, giving it a brand new appearance. New comfort height pool furniture was purchased in January, 2010.

The pool is Gulfside and has gorgeous views of palm trees swaying in the breeze and the Gulf in the background. There is always a refreshing Gulf breeze.

Owner's Response: Our guest reviews mean a lot to us, and as you can see from our 5 star ratings, we keep the unit in excellent condition and provide many extras not normally found in a rental unit.. After seeing this review from one of our repeat visitors, and speaking with them to clarify what may have needed updating and/or replacing, we have replaced the bath towels and bedroom step rugs. We will also be putting a new washer and dryer in the unit. We're so glad this guest has already booked their stay again for next year!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our week at the quieter end of Fort Myers Beach, but all services, e.g. shops and restaurants are just a short 5 minute drive away. You essentially have a large portion of the beach for yourself! The nature is stunning. The beach is pristine. The famous Gulf sunsets. It's all there. And then there is the Shelley-Sue's Condo which just adds to the whole experience. It is spacious, modern, clean, has all the facilities you need. It is very comfortable. We (family of 4, the kids under 10) loved it. The whole complex is very well kept and run too. Can only recommend it.

Perfect Weather and a relaxing week!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great week at Eden House. The condo was clean, well furnished and had plenty of dishes and pans for us to use for the week. Shelley Sue was a great host and answered all questions we had. The condo is well laid out for family's and everything is labeled with instructions and its use. The Beach just in front of the condo is a good place for the kids to run around, and the pool has plenty of chairs and a covered area for when you need to get out of the sun. It is a walk to the main beach, but once we got out there is wasn't crowded and the kids enjoyed playing in the sand.

The Eden House is at the quiet end of the island, and has everything we needed close by. We could walk to a few shops and restaurants in the town plaza near by, and anything else you needed was close by in Bonita Springs. There are many great restaurants within a very short drive. We spend a day at Lovers Key canoeing and walking the beach. This end of Fort Myers is a quite and relaxing place to stay.
