Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Inflatable Bed & Sectional Sofa, Sleeps 8

Do nothing.... stay at 'Little Palm' that is our motto!

'Little Palm' as we like to call it is your home away from home. It is a true beach front cottage with all of today's amenities! 30 steps and you are ready to Do Nothing. As you can see from the photos it has been completely renovated and professionally decorated.

'Little Palm' is located in the heart of Ft. Myers Beach FL right on Estero Blvd 3 miles from Town Square & it is a true beach front property. Mornings at Little Palm may be enjoyed by watching the sunrise as you walk down the beach or just relaxing on the outside patio reading your local paper while having your morning coffee!

Due to its beachfront amenities, you may enjoy the rest of the day taking in the Hot Florida Sun right in front of your property or probably taking advantage of the parasailing, jet skiing, kayaking from Andy next door!

We have enjoyed Little Palm and have had many of wonderful memories here and we'd like to share these memories with you! Come Stay at 'Little Palm' and Do Nothing!

About Chaz and Ileana

We are thrilled to be on Ft. Myers Beach! It was a dream of ours to own a piece of this paradise ever since having first rented on the surf much like yourself, years ago. My wife and I are local Floridians, living in South Florida with our daughter.

Chaz and Ileana purchased this house in 2009

Why Chaz and Ileana chose Fort Myers Beach

"Little Palm" is a dream come true for us. It is a model, homesteader cottage, the likes of which were originally built on Estero Island. Soon it will qualify for the State Registry of Historic Places.

What makes this house unique

Long walks on the beach, shelling, sunbathing, reading, catching up on movies, relaxing, doing nothing....

Being mid-island is perfect because you are close enough to the busy parts of Ft. Myers Beach (Times Square, the Pier, etc.) while affording you access to quiet, pristine beach time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is stunning. We have rented many homes

and never had one so fully stocked and decorated so beachy beautiful. I'll never want to leave! Thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of paradise.

Owner's Response: Thank you to Denny M. for writing that the place was well stocked & that we were quick to respond to an issue with Housekeeping. Fact is, the lady who worked with us decided that she wouldn't show up that day--with no warning. We scrambled to find a cleaning service, to have everything ready for you. They didn't get to everything on time, leaving some sheets on the floor but never notified us and we assumed the house was in great shape for your arrival. We are terribly sorry for that. I wish you knew how much it hurts us not to earn our usual, 5-Star Rating due to something out of our control. We understand that comes with the territory when relying on other people, or even with a "reliable" cleaning service. Thank you for wanting to come back and stay with us. We'd love to have you!! Chaz & Ileana

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The description is spot on- just bring your stuff... Towels, TP, etc. all provided... It was like crashing a buddy's place- unlike some of the other places I've used on VRBO... It took me over a year to reserve it and was completely worth it.

Our favorite spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year at Little Palm, but we have been coming to Fort Myers for 30 years! It is our favorite spot on the island because it is far enough away from the chaos, but still close enough to grocery stores, restaurants, parks, etc. Also a short (as long as traffic is ok) Uber ride into Times Square. We love the privacy of the property! Our little ones loved the beach and we (the adults) loved sitting outside in the evening listening to the sound of the waves. The house is comfortable and basically has everything you need. Cant wait to get back!

Wonderful Christmas stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little home set right on Fort Myers Beach! Walk out the door and onto the beach! Furnishings are lovely, kitchen is well equipped, lots of towels and beach towels. Nice and quiet, with killer views of the Gulf, dolphins right off shore, and powder white sand. What else could you ask for? Roxana was friendly, answered emails quickly, and was very helpful. Thanks for use of the baby bed and high chair. We'll be back!

Marvelous beach front cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we stayed in Ft Myers Beach and we couldn't have picked a better location. Right on the beach, beautiful views, house was well maintained and very comfortable (love the old Florida feel of the house architecture). The pictures don't do it justice. Being mid-island it was close to just about anything you may need or want. Ileana was an extremely gracious hostess and available whenever we had a question. Great place for small families and couples. We will be back!
