Best on the beach !

  • 5 of 5

This well kept property had all 4 of our "must haves," those being beachfront, private pool, separate guest cottage, and a bathtub ! We have been here two times, and are planning to come a third time. Elisabeth will attend to your every need. Stay here and you will never regret your decision.

PERFECT for families with kids:)

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Beachfront Bliss and it was absolutely perfect! We had 6 adults and 4 kids (ages 1,2,4,7). This house was so easy, comfortable and relaxing for our family. The HEATED pool is a must have for us and makes it so comfortable to be swimming for long periods of time. We honestly will not rent another house without a heated pool and it was the perfect temperature! We deck was stunning! Dolphins every morning! The private beach was so relaxing with the small kiddos, as we could relax on the deck with a cocktail and watch them playing without having any safety concerns. There were many sand toys. Our boys especially loved all the big trucks there to play with. We had a bonfire and relaxed on the hammocks:) Such a wonderful vacation! One negative is that the pool is very close to the main road. Was not a safety concern at all since the pool is gated in, but you do hear traffic during the day. Thanks Elizabeth!

Beautiful house, great for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at beachfront bliss! It was the ideal size for our family of 6, proximity to the beach could not be beat and the beautiful sunsets and sunrises from the deck were a favorite part of our trip. The pool was a great diversion for the kids and there were so many pool and sand toys provided, which was an unexpected surprise. Everything was perfectly clean and the owner was so welcoming. Thanks so much for the great stay!

Great property right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

The main house and guest house were very nice. Spacious room, comfortable furniture but the best was the back porch, the pool and the back yard with area for grandsons to play in the sand and grandparents to enjoy hammocks. Nice fire pit and grill too. Pool was perfect size and depth for 5 and 8 year olds that can swim.

Elizabeth was friendly and very helpful. She met us their and had lots of useful information. We hope to be able to return. All 7 of us gave it 5 stars.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a beach vacation in Ft Myers Beach. The location is perfect. It is about 3 miles from the center of town and the beach is far less crowded. The house is even nicer then advertised and the owner is super nice and responsive. You can't beat the sunsets which you can see without leaving the deck .

Traffic is heavy so rent bikes.

Car: recommended

This oversized property is directly on the beach where the sugar white sand is the widest on the island and in a quiet residential neighborhood. It is within walking distance to beachfront dining and water sport rentals including jet skis, kayaks, paddle boards, parasailing, guided manatee and dolphin tours in the stunning estuaries of Estero Bay. The beach is 3 1/2 miles in either direction and great for walks, running and shell collecting. Day trips to Sanibel and Captiva, Miromar Outlet Mall, Naples and the Everglades are easily reached. Fort Myers Beach, also called Estero Island, is located on the Gulf of Mexico and is West of Fort Myers Florida (RSW Airport), South of Sanibel and Captiva Islands, North of Naples & Bonita Springs and West of Estero and Gulf Coast University.
