About Barry Grossman

We are from Philadelphia 'City of Brotherly Love', and still reside in Center City in the neighborhood called Bella Vista. Now, we often head down to our Sunrise Beach Cottage by the Gulf for a Beautiful and Relaxing View. We take pride in our home & every time we get to Sunrise Beach Cottage, we improve it just a bit more each time.

Barry Grossman purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Barry Grossman chose Ft Myers Beach

We do not like to drive, so when we get to FMB, we can stroll along the beach, bike the entire Island easily (it's flat & small), or take the trolley if we are tired from laying on the beach & floating in the Gulf all day! There's a 7-eleven about one block away for milk when first arrival & two Supermarkets on the Island. Hop onthe Trolley (a few steps from Sunrise Beach Cottage) to Winn Dixie or KMart or better yet to Lovers Key.

What makes this cottage unique

Only a few steps from the beach and the powdery white sand, the Sunrise Beach Cottage is charming, comfortable and located in the very desirable North Fort Myers beach area. We enjoy the beautiful panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico, the sailboats, dolphins and taking an easy stroll to 'Time Square' for an evening ice cream or shopping after dinner. Also, we enjoy hopping the beach trolley (next door), to explore anywhere on the Island for $.25-$.50 cents. Can't beat that!

Sunrise Beach Cottage awaits you! So pack up your suitcase and sit back and relax. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do!

Great Location, April 2018

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay the first week of April. Excellent location, short walk to the "downtown" area and steps from the beach. It is also easier to get to coming over the bridge to the "island" of Fort Myers Beach as the traffic is less due to it being on the northern side. Area seemed to be a little more tranquil than other areas of Fort Myers Beach. Barry was easy to work with. Everything we needed was included in the cottage. Plenty of towels and the kitchen was stocked with all the appliances/utensils that might be needed. Overall clean and maintained. Cottage is taller than those around it so you can still see the ocean and there is a nice breeze on the high deck. Living room area is a little awkward, especially if you were to use the sofa bed as it would partially extend in front of the second bedroom door. Our daughter was short enough that she just slept on the couch without having to pull out the bed so it wasn't an issue for us. The master bedroom is tight which made it difficult to use the dresser to store items but again it wasn't really a big deal. With that said, I am sure that most of the beach cottages are similar in that regard. If you plan to spend most of your time outside and be close to the beach, you won't go wrong. Rarely ever give 5 stars on ratings so don't look at the 4 as negative and we would recommend.

Cozy beach getaway with lofty views

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth stay and we are already booked for another year. Love the location, midway between Bowditch Point Park and Times Square and just steps away from the beach. Clean, comfortable, and cute cottage.

Nice beach cottage with everything included

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Sunrise Beach Cottage. Two adults and 2 teenage girls. The girls shared the second bedroom but one of them could have taken the couch in the living room. The kitchen included all the items we needed for cooking and cleaning. The only thing wrong was that neither of the 2 microwaves were functional. This cottage is just a short walk from the beach and the hotel next door offers umbrellas and chairs for around $20/day - cheaper if you rent for a few days at a time. We also used the umbrella and chairs from the cottage which were fine too. The restaurants and bars at Times Square are only a short walk down the street. Bikes are available at the cottage as well as boogie boards and sand toys. Everything we needed.
